Berry Berry Quite Contrary


If you are looking for the ScrapMatters Birthday Blog Train – please scroll down one post. Smile

So I mentioned earlier that TinaMarie was guesting at another store this month – and it has opened for the month of August at Zig Zag Scrap!

Her new kit Berry Berry Quite Contrary has some really cute elements and papers.


Here’s my card:


It seems I’m kind of into dotted lines and I’m trying out a clean simple style at times. I really love how this style can emphasize one or two really special pieces in a card.

DST August New to You Designer August 2011–Snips and Snails


The New to You Designer for August 2011 is Snips and Snails. This kit is even more fun than the preview makes you think. The color scheme is great (love blue and green) and the doodle alpha is fantastic! You should see the layouts with this kit – they are some of my favorites!


I created these monogram bookmarks – matched perfectly with a ribbon set I’ve been dying to use. I had fun altering the positions of the ribbons to add a fun touch. The kit works really well for a clean graphic style as well as a more complicated scrappy style. The font is Honey Script.
