TaDa Creative Studios & Scrapfit Color Inspiration post

TaDa Creative Studios Nothing but blue skies

Today is my day to post on the TaDa blog. This time I chose to play with the New Poolside collection. I started with the wonderful Fringe Benefits Round n Round, I love using the fringe benefits they are so much fun to play with. Its so fun to krinkle up the edges. I ended up putting the Fringe Benefits onto the backside of the Cannonball paper.

Next I chose the Line Dry paper and cut out some of the bathing suits and towel, they add such a fun playful tone to the layout. Coming up with a title was so easy once I saw this title block on the Snippets & Clippets paper. Next I took a small piece from the SPF50 paper and used a Fiskars Border Punch, its the yellow piece on the edge of the photo. I used a couple strips from the backside of Snippets & Clippets and the backside of Line Dry. I liked the touch of orange around the photo which is the backside of the Snack Shack.

The final touches are the flip flops that I cut out and popped up with foam tape and the Beach Ball which is from the Stickies that I also used foam tape on. The journaling block I will eventually write in but just didn't finish that touch.

CropStop April Pagemaps Challenge

Welcome to CropStop's April, Spellbinder/Becky Fleck Challenge! For the entire month of April, we challenge you to create a project based on Becky Fleck's newly released Potpourri Die Set from Spellbinders and her coordinating Pagemap Sketch.

I used the sketch for inspiration for this card, but I felt I couldn't use all the elements in the sketch because the card wasn't big enough. But I'm very happy with how the card turned out.
Items from the CropStop store are: Memory Box Woven Circle; Sheer Ombré ribbon; Dew Drop's Hardy Ivy.
Other Items: Papers -My Mind's Eye & Dear Lizzy. Die Cut- My Mind's Eye. Sticker - My Mind'e Eye. Chipboard Banner - Jenni Bowlin. Glimmer Glaze - Ocean's Spray.

We know you don't have Becky's new die set yet, but we want to see what you can do with her Pagemap and make your project look similar. If you happen to have the die set already, that is awesome!
