mixin' it up .......

hello everyone -

Jill, here, on my first-ever assignment as one of the newest Dog house divas......WooooHooooo!!!! Am I ever lucky!!!!!

You will learn very quickly that I lllooooovvvvveeeeee to mix things up a lot and use as many product lines from a company as possible. In other words -- if Nikki were to ask me what product line she should send me to design with....I would have to tell her, "send me ONE pattern paper from every line you've got......I don't want anything too matchy-matchy."

That's me......the girl who can't seem to get herself to purchase more than one paper from a line. Anyone else like this....or is it just me?!?

Anyway.......I wanted to share two layouts that I have recently created with Nikki Sivils products (no ONE particular line highlighted).

Hooray for School:
products used: Flaming Butterfly: Butterfly Games, Willow Bee: Day Dreamer, My Sweet Cherry Pie: Cherry Tree, Will He B the 1: Date Night Strips, Ellie's Day Out: Ellie's Cutie Cut-Ups.
Lots of painting, stitching, layering, pop-dotting, inking, hole punching, sanding........the list goes on. Oh yeah....and lots of f.u.n.!!!!!

fishin' 4 tunes: this layout, I tried to go completely out-of-my-comfort-zone and create a layout using more than one paper from a line (going completely against what i just told you about myself). Must admit, this is REALLY hard for me to do........I just naturally (normally) go for pattern papers that don't match AT ALL!!!!!!
products used: Flaming Butterfly: Butterfly Tag, Butterfly Eggs, Butterfly Strips; Dan the Record Man: Record Man; Bread(less) Tabs.

I used the Bread(less) Tabs to create these cute, little fish by cutting them in half, length-wise. I added a hand-cut oval from the Butterfly Eggs pattern paper. A google eye & smiley face seals the deal.
To view any of these products, click here (pattern paper) and here (Bread(less) Tabs).

Hope this stretches your creativity to grab those Nikki Sivils papers that aren't necessarily in one product line, and create fun & bold layouts with multiple papers. Now, go create something with "one from each" line. I know you'll love it!!!
smiles to all,
