Zinia's Rainbow Chevron Layout

Hello everyone! It’s Zinia here and today I want to share with you a really fun rainbow collage background I created using the new Hustle & Heart collection designed by Amy.

I was totally inspired by the paint stroke pattern paper that’s included in the collection so I decided to cut it into strips and find patterns with similar color.

I paired each paint stroke with a subtle monochromatic pattern and then I started building up a chevron design for my background.

Since my colors are very bright and bold the background will be pretty “heavy”. To keep everything balanced and pleasing to the eye, I kept everything else very minimal. I used a bright photo and the only embellishments I added were a few clear stickers. I made sure my stickers followed the rainbow order of the background so everything looks nice and cohesive.

To lighten things up I added some white ink splatters. I also decided to bring in a few more white elements so I picked a white foam word and a few hearts from the thickers set to add on the page.

The process of creating this layout is very easy and it doesn’t take much time. The result is really nice and bright and it’s especially perfect if you enjoy creating your own unique collage backgrounds.

Make a Life You Love - New Products in the Shop!

Amy Tangerine

My bullet journal has become more of a memory keeping device than I had originally planned, but I think I like it. We got so many requests for our months stamp, so we put it along with the alphabet set you see here and a brand new set called Be Kind

We also have my latest collection, Hustle & Heart, in the shop.

To quickly and easily print these cute photos of Jack, I used my mint Prynt Pocket

For the memories that need a place to live that take up more room than in my planner, I still use traveler's notebook to document those. Love that my Prynt Pocket is so accessible and that the quality of the sticker prints is the best I have seen of any Zink printer! All of this goodness can be found in our shop! What are you planning on making this week? 

Our New Nugget!

Jack's playroom has gone through several iterations through the years, and I am happy to report that our newest addition has been a huge hit!  We've been enjoying the Nugget Comfort play couch that we got for Jack recently. It has a way of bringing us all together, whether it's under tents or building castles and obstacle courses, this Nugget encourages family time and play. Not to mention this new Cactus color is pretty close to perfection! One of our favorite books lately is Little Owl Lost. It's such a sweet story and Jack has basically memorized the entire thing, so he can enjoy reading it on his own. 

We love our newest addition, and even Buster approves! Go check out the rest of their new colors and yes - the Nugget covers are machine washable!

Behind the Scenes of a Photo Shoot

Amy Tangerine Behind the Scenes

When I was in college I was working as a freelance fashion stylist in Atlanta. Shortly after I graduated, I started my own company producing photo shoots for various clients like magazines and print catalogs. It was a really fun experience and I miss the collaborative outings of those creative photo shoots. Thankfully, I still get to dabble in it every now and again. This time though I was asked to model for my friend Alisha of LISH Creative after Forme Comfort thought my legs would look good for some of their photos. Plus I was able to lend some of my chalk lettering skills as well. It was such a fun day!

Hope you enjoy the video!

Happy Friday! If you're an email subscriber, be sure to check your email as we have a FREE DIGITAL PRINT for you I'm so excited to have launched Hustle & Heart in our shop and I whipped up an exclusive design!

Hello everyone! It’s Zinia here and today I want to share with you another layout I created featuring the fun and colorful Hustle & Heart collection designed by Amy.

Zinia-Sept-UnderTheSea-01.jpg

I am madly in love with this collection and all the bright and whimsical designs that it features. The patterns are so inspiring that in many cases it’s so easy to base a whole page on just the beautiful papers of this collection.

For this layout I started with the beautiful patchwork paper and I cut out all the areas that had blue and orange patterns. I used three different sizes of circle punches to create a bunch of bubbles.

The main idea was to create a scenery that gives an impression of an underwater scape. For the top and the bottom of the page I fussy-cut strips of other patterns to create an impression of ground and sky/ocean.

I kept the embellishing part fairly simple using a few color coordinating items like my absolute favorite suede bows, puffy hearts and a few clear stickers.
