Here are some fabulous projects from our August guest designer, Jennifer Camacho. She has included some great tips and instructions so I hope you'll give some of them a try!
12X12 Layout: I used the flower embellishment and turned it into a sun instead. I used the the paper clips, buttons and ribbon from the kit and orange Simple Stories ribbon
I stickled the cloud stickers using Rock Candy stickles.
Altered Pop Top Candy Tin:
Make your own candy tins or favors!
1. I used a 4 ounce can of peaches, peeled off the label and turned the can upside down and opened it. I opened the can at the bottom using a safety can opener I purchased from Pampered Chef. I drained the can of its contents and peeled off label. Next, I wash ythe can and lid well and let it dry thoroughly.
2. With the can turned upside down, I filled it with Hershey's Kisses. Try to use small baggies for food/candy items to help prevent the glue used to close the can from touching the food/candy.
3. I applied a thin strip of STRONG glue all the way around the outer rim of the cut out lid and then, carefully pressed the bottom lid back onto the can, wiping away any excess glue immediately. I left the can upside down to dry to dry overnight. I also find it helpful to use a heavy object to weigh down the lid until the glue has dried. I added the Jenni Bowlin butterfly and added some stickle dots to my circular tag.
Altered Vacation Money Jar:
Gotta start saving for next years Summer vacation, so I made this cute vacation money jar
from a used jar of sauce.
I used the Plantan Schoolbook Cricut cartridge to cut out the $ sign and added some Zva stones for a little extra bling.
Flower card -- used scallop punch and folded it, to form my own flowers. Again, a little Zva stones...love these!
Hello Card: used the chipboard female silhouette and covered it with patterned paper.
I cut out the drawing of the girl playing in the sand off of one of the sheets of paper and was inspired to make a beach themed tag.
I used stickles (rock candy on the sand)(blue and silver for the water and also added a little orange in the sky). I crumpled up the cardstock paper to give it more texture.
