{ August Studio AE Sneak Peek }

I can’t believe August is here in a few days. Here is a little Sneak Peek of August Studio AE. I will show you a full project on August 1.


Here is a second card I created for July  Daisy - Greenhouse Society.

I'm here for you by Daniela Dobson

I embossed the Daisy on Kraft cardstock with white embossing powder and colored it with Prisma color pencils. I used Flower Soft for the centers. You can find what the other DT members created on our blog post HERE.

{ Summer Fun with Zips, Bella Blvd and A Flair For Buttons }

Today I am sharing a layout I created for Therm O Web using their Zips. They are clear adhesive lines. I love them, and the best part, they are ultra thin.

I have step by step photos and instructions on Therm O Web Blog. I would love it if you stopped by.

Fun in the sun by Daniela Dobson

You can see how I used Zips here where I added the embellishments in a straight line. Check out the tutorial Therm O Web blog.

I was recently asked to join {A Flair For Buttons} DT. I am really excited about that! You will see more fun flair on my layouts. The ones here are from Summertime Flair 1 and All Boy Flair 1.

I used July Studio AE – Label Maker and June Studio AE – Fun In The Sun. My photos are layered over Story Cards from Technique Tuesday.

{ July Studio AE Blog Hop from Technique Tuesday }

This is my second blog post, if you are looking for Samantha Walker blog hop, please go HERE.

Welcome to our July 2013 Blog Hop.
Today we are featuring projects made with the Studio AE – Label Maker – July 2013.

Here is my layout.

Life is amazing by Daniela Dobson

I should have taken a photo of my watercolor base, but I was just trying it out and wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out, but it worked. I used watercolor crayons and watercolor paper to paint the background different colors.

I stamped the labels in different colors, to match the rest of the layout, and placed them around the photos. I added a flair button from {A Flair for Buttons}, enamel dots and sequins to add more color and dimension to the page.

After I added the journaling I needed some words in the top left corner and I used Favorite Memories by Ali Edwards stamp set. Love those little words and sentences.
