Looking for Inspiration?

Thanks to all who made our Yard Sale so much fun. We hope you're enjoying your great bargains!

So now its time for a bit of inspiration from the Playground Design Team!  We challenged Nancy to put together a two-page layout using Cosmo Cricket's DeLovely paper line.  As you can see, she didn't disappoint with her Believe layout.  She highlighted the papers with just the right amount of embellishments -- coordinating die cuts/stickers, bling around the scalloped edge and some ribbon.  She created her title from a Playground favorite, American Crafts Thickers.

Angie created this fun two page layout using wildly colorful papers from Bo Bunny's Sun-Kissed line -- great for your summer pictures!  In Summertime Friends, she captured the great time her son has every summer with camp friends. Notice she used black and white photos so they'd stand out against the brightly colored patterened papers turned into a patchwork background. She cut out the fun water spray from one of the papers, gave it a wet look by outlining it with glossy accents and had it span the two pages.  Add some journaling tags, twine and brads -- and oh yeah, Thickers and Cosmo Cricket's Tiny Type to create the title -- and she's captured the fun summertime spirit.
