Zinia's Accordion Minibook

Hello fangerines! It’s Zinia here and today I want to share with you a little minibook I created with the new Hustle & Heart collection by Amy Tangerine!

The idea came to me when I first saw the square cut apart sheet that comes in this collection. I thought that these 3x3 squares would be perfect as pages for a minibook. I decided to work in an accordion mini cause it’s fun and cute.

To create the base of the minibook I used two 12” long strips of paper and I cut them down to 3” wide. Then I folded my strips twice into an accordion shape and attached them together to make my minibook longer.

I really wanted to keep the whole project very simple and time friendly so to simplify the process I used one photo and one 3x3 square from the cut apart sheet for every spread.

To embellish my pages I used a combination of Hustle & Heart as well as a few bits from Oh Happy Life collection.

Although I wanted to keep things flat and avoid extra bulk on my pages, I couldn’t resist using the gorgeous suede bows from Hustle & Heart. They are my most favorite embellishment ever!

I also had a lot of fun with the clear stickers. Even though I usually prefer cardstock stickers, the sticker book from Hustle & Heart is absolutely amazing! There are a ton of pages and you get a many gold and white stickers which can be stuck on top of dark patterns and surfaces.

Violeta's Little Moments Layout

Hello everyone, my name is Violeta Scrap and today I want to share with you a layout I created using Amy´s collections.

Little Moments Layout 1.jpg

This layout is about my travel to Malaysia. The layout I’m gonna share with you today is really sweet and whimsical. I used a mix of the two most recent collections Amy designed “Oh happy day” and “Oh a whim”.

Usually I print my photos with my Canon SELPHY, but I occasionally print at home, I use my INSTAX Share-SP2 It's great for printing from my iPhone, or from my computer.

I really love how fresh and whimsical this layout looks and the process of making it was nothing but enjoyable.

 

Little Moments Layout 3.jpg

This time I wanted to create a white and pink layout, which make the perfect combination for me.

One of the things I love about using Amy’s collections is that they all have a similar vibe, so even though the color stories and icons may be different, they mix and match so beautifully with one another.

My title “Little Moments” was also made using Thickers from “Oh happy life” collection.

I really love mixing different materials so I included clear stickers, chipboard, stickers, enamels, Thickers and rubber shapes. I also fussy cut some donuts from one of the cut apart sheets and used them around the page as ephemera.

This design is really so easy and fun to make and as I said earlier you only need very minimal supplies.

I really hope you enjoyed it and you will give it a go.

Lenovo in the studio!

Amy Tangerine BTS Lenovo

If you follow me on any of my social channels, then you likely already know about the collaboration I did with Lenovo for the Yoga 720. It was an awesome opportunity that was months in the making and took a team of over 15 people at my house to pull off! At one point during the 12 hour shoot day, I think we had half the crew in my teeny studio. It was an awesome experience and I will be posting the behind the scenes on my YouTube channel tomorrow!

You can check out the videos we filmed:

Makers Gonna Make

Amy Tangerine x Brit + Co

Decided to make a fun little spread in a new Brit + Co planner I got while visiting San Fran last month. Used fun supplies from my shop (the floral stamp repeated all over Makers Gonna Make is from the Gratitude set) along with my latest collection, Hustle & Heart. I used my favorite Tombow brush markers to create a list of Crafty Projects I want to make.

Brit + Co planners and goodies can be found exclusively at Target. They also have a great little article up called Planner Goals: How 6 Boss Ladies Stay Organized and Personalize Their Planners that I was interviewed for here. I also shared a bit of the process of decorating this in my latest Favorites video on YouTube. What's on your list of crafty projects?
