American Crafts Guest - Good Times using Rise & Shine


I am so completely and utterly over the moon to be Guest Designing for American Crafts on their blog this week. Some of the design team and myself are contributing layouts for the Fun in the Sun theme. 

Here is one of the layouts I created using only Amy Tangerine Rise and Shine Collection. 


Supplies: Cardstock (71081) - 12x12 White, Rise & Shine (70026) Grace/Phrase Black Foam Thickers, Rise & Shine (70012) Olivia Paper, Rise & Shine (370025) 6x6 paper pad, Rise & Shine (370035) Phrase Stickers, Rise & Shine (370039) Wood Veneer Tags, Rise & Shine (370038) Cardstock Die Cuts, True Stories (370736) Enamel Dots 

I just adore this picture of Jack that I snapped in our backyard on a lovely day. Even at 9 months Jack shows such a love for the outdoors! He loves being outside and gets upset if his sister is and he isn't.


I adored the sun and cloud from the 12" patterned paper so I decided to cut it out and make it a feature of the page. The ephemera pack had so many cute bright elements, they were super fun to layer. 


For the title I used the Rise and Shine foam word stickers. These were a perfect contrast in the black with the bright colours in the collection. 


When I saw the veneer tags I was wanting to include one of this page. I decided to loop some thin crochet thread and tie a bow and layer it ontop of the floral die cut. 



Thank you for visiting my blog today! And a big thanks to those who leave me comments, I appreciate them all xx
