Adventure >> This way!! by Ange Weisbeck

I'm so excited to be making my first post here on the Speedy Scrappers blog. And even more excited to let you know that this is just a peek at all the awesomeness that was sent my way! If you've been following the blog then you've seen some awesome projects from my fellow dt members already and I can guarantee there is even more fun in store for you! 

Ok, enough with the chit chat here's my layout:

This layout is about my 3yr old son "reading" the map at the zoo last spring and this paper from Studio Calico Wanderlust was perfect for it! I started with this fun paper that reminded me of a map as my background and then tore two of the other prints to layer over it for the base beneath my photos.

Those strips you see going behind my photo are from an adhesive sheet! Made by Crate Paper, it's an entire sheet of strips that you just cut up, peel and stick! So fun, I'm excited to use more.

As you can see I just had a bunch of fun layering, tearing and adding this and that from my stash too. I used markers and inks on my wood veneer, they color up really easy, and then added some fun washi tape to the corners of my photos.
  Lastly I inked my edges with a charcoal and then ran a dark brown pad around it too. I love the 'finished' look it gives a layout.

Head to the store and pick up this fun Studio Calico paper! It's got some fantastic prints. I think the next one I want to play with will be the orange, yellow & pink polka dot. Such a great color combo!

Thanks for stopping by today! You can find us on facebook too.
See you next week.

Birthday Card

Hello, everyone, my name is Joan. I'm one of the new Design Team members here at Speedy Scrappers.

Today I'm sharing a birthday card I created. I used the Party Day kit from Crate Paper to make my card. The kit is filled with great papers and lots of fun embellishments!

I die cut lace circles from the Party Day papers and layered them with white doilies from my stash. The Happy Birthday embellishment is so cute! I pop dotted it and the small white doily. Then I added a small gold heart (from my stash). I also put some lace on the card.

You can find lots of wonderful paper collections by checking out the Speedy Scrappers online store

Happy Birthday using Party Day

Hi friends! Emily here today, with a card I made using the fantastic Party Day line by Crate Paper which can be found at Speedy Scrappers. The entire Collection Kit is carried in the store. I can't tell you how much fun this line is, and how much I have created from it. 

I've been working on layouts from my nephew's first birthday, as well as cards for upcoming birthdays in the family. The line is extremely versatile as far as colors go, so its perfect for boys, girls and everyone else. 

Here is the first card I made from the line... 

If you love this line as much as I do, pick it up at Speedy Scrappers! You can even call the store, and Bridget will ship it to you! 

Have a great day!!

Free 2B Me using Moxie's Child's Play Collection

Speedy Scrappers in house designer, Karen Anderson created this adorable layout of her son using the Moxie Child's Play collection. The full paper line is available in the store. 

I love how Karen cut strips of the patterned papers for her background. The papers were then distressed with Distress Inks for more dimension so they pop off of the page! I love that photo of her son! So cute!! 

Hope you have enjoyed this inspiration from Karen! Come see us again soon for more creative inspiration from our designers!!
