..:: sweet treat shenanigans ::..

I am up on the {A Flair for Buttons} blog today with another layout using a few of my favorite things. Flair, color cast designs creations, and shimmers paints... I was able to use them all on this summery layout!  

I started with some new paints that I got from Shimmerz Paints! I used my palette knife and three colors of paint to make my background. I pulled colors from the photo to begin with and then used AcriToneZ Orange You Glad, along with Tree Hugger and Raspberry Sorbet (both Paste-Eez). Once my background was on, I found two pieces of flair from the Hello Spring Flair Set that matched perfectly!

I was also able to use several pieces (old and newer) from Color Cast Designs for my title and embellishments. I love they mix of color and wood veneer. 

If you are following me on IG (and if you aren't, why aren't you?), you probably already know that I am on all three design teams -- Shimmerz Paints, Color Cast Designs, and A Flair for Buttons. I am so blessed to be able to work with these gorgeous products! 

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you real soon!

..:: wild thing ::..

Hi everyone! I am up on the {a flair for buttons} blog and IG with a fun layout for you using, flair from AFFB's Black and Gold Set and the Black and White Words 2 Set, and some yummy products from Color Cast Designs (old and new)!

I pulled the colors from the photo -- her skirt and bike are salmon-ish, and those Mine Craft sunglasses are purple (her favorite color). And I just happened to have some Color Cast products, thread and washi to help pull those colors out. I found two pieces of flair from the Black and Gold set that I thought worked really well to help add pops of black and white, and also added to the story.


I am in love with this acrylic and wood veneer set from Color Cast Design's July release. I am not really a big fan of purple, but this is just gorgeous and I loved working with it and the star confetti from July -- I also threw in some salmon and light blue confetti from past releases.

This arrow flair is from the Black and White Words 2 set and it helped to bring the focus to my story and help move the eyes around the page. I totally love how it looks with the black and white text paper from Amy Tangerine's latest colloction.

I also used Sketchy Saturday sketch from Paper Issues, you can find that here.

Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!
