Canning Cards with Jillibean Soup and American Crafts - Design Team

So much fun to go the Scrapbook Store and pick out pretty papers.  So much more fun to pair them with favorite photos and create a visual memory on a scrapbook page.  I love the flowers and soft colors of this line from American Crafts.  Who couldn't resist these pretties with sweet names like "My Darling," "Thing of Beauty," and "Neato"?  Check out the rest of the Peachy Keen line at the store.  I thought I was all clever when I used the barcode strips (so cannot even think about letting them go to waste!) but I visited the American Crafts blog today and found out they're having "Barcode Strips Week!"  So much for thinking outside the box :)  On this layout, I also punched the title from little letters on the paper sheet called "Neato" and made my own cute yarn flowers.  I hand-drew and cut out the flower shape and then ran it through the xyron to made it sticky.  It was just laying down the yarn and sewing on a button after that.  Easy Peasy!  Oh, that's another one of the paper names from this line!
After making the layout, I used more pieces to create some cute and simple mini cards.  You don't need to add much when you are working with papers this pretty!  The double sided feature gives you lots of options.  I made envelopes to match and put them in a canning jar as a gift.

I also made more cute cards using kraft cardstock and leftovers from a layout using a couple of sheets of Jillibean Soup kraft patterned paper.  This layout and line of papers was really what gave me the idea to put cards into a canning jar in the first place!  My layout and cards use Chilled Strawberry Soup - "Fresh Lime Juices" and "Light Corn Syrup".  I also used a bunch of the house, tree, and other corrugated cardboard shapes, which I inked to give them more definition.  The green trim is cardstock punched with a Fiskars edge punch.  The label die cut is from one of the coordinating paper die cut sheets from Jillibean Soup.  It's called "Pea Pod Parts" and has a lot of canning references, thus the gift idea of putting itty bitty notecards into a canning jar.  I used wide-mouthed jars so the cards are easy to get in and out.  I made a set of 6 using the Jillibean and a set of 8 using the American Crafts.  I would love to open my pantry and find cute canned cards instead of beans and pickled pears, wouldn't you?  So, come into the store for your "canning supplies" and get canning!  Happy Crafting, Karen

A Little Design Team Inspiration

eclec-tic: composed of elements drawn from various sources... that describes my style. I love to mix and match different paper lines and embellishments, like I did with the layouts I'm sharing today.

Hello Cupcake, uses papers from My Mind's Eye, Lush and Lime Twist lines and is set on one of the new BasicGrey Sweet Threads papers. I threw in some metal, some twine, two different fonts and some pearls. I have to say... I really love how this layout turned out... I hope you do, too.

My other layout, Beach Boyz, uses four papers from the Lime Twist lines (two with dots, a stripe and a houndstooth), a blue cardstock, and hints of periwinkle metal mixed with green glittered letters. How does that work??? I'm not sure but it does. What do you think?
As always, I hope this inspires you to mix it up and add a little metal to your next project.
