Hello Lovelies ! Shing here!
Today, I'm sharing my first Design Team project using Janette Lane's Succulent Springtide printable!! Spring is here and definitely, we look towards creating something Spring-y!
For my first project, I challenged myself to create something colourful and bright despite the Blues and Minty tone to the printable.
Here are the supplies that I used (Boy! It's a long one):
- Janette Lane's Succulent Springtide printable
- Paper :
- Kaisercraft Wildflower
- Ephemera :
- Washi & Trim: Daiso
- Embellishment: Michaels Floral Sticker, Daiso Puffy Hearts
- Stamp (Girl): Love Cynthia
- Punched Glitter hearts & Sequins
- Adhesive & Tools
So we started off printing the printables of course! 🙂 Here is the picture of the printables and some embellishments that I took from my stash.
Aren't they pretty???
You can choose to print "Fit To Page" or printing it in "Actual Size". Both work for pocket pages! After printing these we can get crafty !!!
Also, you can always fussy cut the images or leave it as it is! Here, I fussy cut the Succulent and the Leaf which says "From my crafty desk to yours.." to act as an ephemera.
++CHEAT FACT++ When I was a beginner in starting my first few pocket letters, I would try to stick to the colour scheme of ephemera used. I started off with just one colour/ two colour style so that everything would look good together haha!
Well, of course, you should always challenge yourself once in awhile! Believe that you can do much more than just sticking to a few colours! I'm pretty sure they'll turn out fantastic!
Also, you can always dig into your stash to avoid hoarding (I'm pretty sure everyone does this at some point!). You'll be amazed at the endless supplies that you have and can use!
I added sequins (from my stash) to my shaker slot, punched the glitter gold hearts to add something sparkly and used the Fuse Tool to seal the pocket shut.
If you noticed, I like to cluster different elements in a corner. using a mix of colours for the ephemera to bring the pops of colours in one pocket page. In this pocket piece, I cut out a paper from the Kaisercraft 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and fussy cut the butterflies to act as an embellishment. It'll be fun to live a colourful life, don't you think?
Don't forget that you can also include stamping into your pocket spreads if you still want to hoard that stash of ephemera (LOL!)
