Do you like embellishments? Do you like to "create your own" using a bare base? Well, we are starting a two day blog swap with Basically Bare today and that is just what the Divas are going to show you! Basically Bare not only has unique and fun mini books to alter, but they have bare chipboard, canvas, arcrylic, and cardboard embellishments to make your own to match your layouts with the paper collection you are working with!
We will also be having a giveaway, but you will have to comment here on the blog and also over at Basically Bare's blog. Their designers have created some FUN FUN FUN stuff and I can't wait for you to see it! But, let's look at what the Divas created first!
Laurel Seabrook used the Messages collection to make a journal from one of the mini books the girls were sent. Here is Laurel to tell you about it.....
Hi everyone, Laurel here. I am so excited to bring you my Basically Bare project today. I loved this mixed album as soon as I saw it in my package and couldn't wait to use it. I decided to make a Gratitude Journal and have left lots of space for adding photos I take, lots of journaling and I love the few envelopes for holding memorabilia or more photos. I had a lot of fun creating this, I used lots of stamps and Cricut cuts and for adhering the items to the pages I have used the Beacon 3 in 1 Glue.
(Laurel has more pictures of her complete album on her blog)
Jodi Wilton created this CUTE altered frame project that I want her to send me! I love how the two collections mixed perfectly! Let's hear from Jodi......
I used the six of the chipboard Hearts from to create a home decor project! The hearts were perfect because they were nice and thick, which added a lot of dimension to the project! I covered the hearts with EXIT HERE and AUDREY collections, and added the hot air balloon to tie in the title.
I (Katrina) made this layout about my first trip to CHA using the Audrey collection. I will have close ups of the dress and heart on my blog.
The girly collection was perfect for the dress form and wings! I also used a canvas heart and some of the chipboard blossoms to accent my picture. Double bonus is that that cluster also holds my layout title! BTW, Suzy is glowing..I am sweating! July in downtown Chicago during the heatwave last year!
Deana Boston had fun creating with the Basically Bare Celestial Shapes set using the sun and clouds for her layout about a flat tire!! She used the Noah collection for her layout.
Deana added sequins to her sun and wrapped twine around the felt clouds!
Sarah Eclavea has done a fun little mini with the Exit Here collection. Here are a few of the pages from it.
