This month I was invited to be a Guest Designer for 13 Arts and received some beautiful papers to work with! 

I designed 2 layouts:

For her 16th birthday last month, our daughter planned a dinner out with friends at a restaurant.  They dressed up and had a wonderful time…and this is the photo I took of her before their meal.

I used some dollar store bling and a doily and punched the pink paper with a Martha Sewart border punch.

The title I [heart] U are letters cut from an alphabet on one of the pieces of paper.

The heart is a special technique I will share on another blog post in the near future.

The dress form is a Prima canvas element…

For my second layout, I decided to use a photo of my husband’s parents’ wedding…

The chipboard branches with birds is a Dusty Attic piece painted white and glittered…

I cut a tag from a piece of paper to use as my title “Love”…

Seam binding ribbon, cheesecloth and Prima flowers adorn the tag.
The white resin corner is Prima.

I enjoyed the soft colours of these papers, and the patterns themselves created so much texture.  Loved designing with them!

I hope you have time to stop by the 13 Arts blog where you will find even more inspiration from their talented designers!  Click HERE to visit 13 Arts.

    Two wonderful LO’s, Kelly! I especially like the wedding page- the branch with birds is charming. Love the nice dimension you added and great texture with the cheese cloth. Congrats on being GD 🙂
