Color Factory

Color Factory | Amy Tangerine

Last week while I was up in San Francisco for a quick day trip, I was able to check out the new Color Factory and it was AMAZING. It just opened today and I highly recommend you go and reserve tickets! I took my friend Pamelyn from Bashery & Co and met up with Alisha and some friends for the fun.

I had to vlog the experience, as it was everything you would imagine it to be and more.

There are a couple sneak peeks at the next Fresh Squeezed Fashion Tees, which will be available to subscribers on August 9 through Aug 14! 

Also, I am SUPER EXCITED to share that I will be teaching in the UK for the first time in late October with Birds of a Feather at Chateau Impney! It will be a really fun-filled weekend - come join us!

Zinia's Big Floral Cluster Layout

Hello everyone, it’s Zinia (aka Abstract Inspiration) and today I’d like to share with you a very easy and fun layout design you can create using only a few items.

The inspiration came from the big floral paper that comes in the On a Whim collection. I really wanted to fussy cut some pieces and create a flowerpot of some sort. So after I cut a bunch of the flowers, I went to my paper stash to find a nice pattern for my base.

I found this beautiful red striped paper but once I cut out a strip I fell in love with the way it looked spreading from one edge of the paper to the other. So instead of cutting it into a pot, I left it as is and starting building my flower cluster across the whole page.

Luckily, the flowers were big enough so I didn’t have a problem covering a big area with them. To make my cluster more interesting, I grabbed the On a Whim and Oh Happy Life sticker sheets and pulled more floral images and leaves. I used the floral stickers to fill the gaps between the bigger flowers and also balance the colors through the layout.

I didn’t want my title to be distracting so I picked some white foam words from the Oh Happy Life thicker pack and placed them vertically on the red striped paper. The red color was bright enough to create a nice contrast and still let the title pop a bit.

As for my photo, I used a black and white picture to help it stand out since everything else on this page was so bright and vibrant.

This design is really so easy and fun to make and as I said earlier you only need very minimal supplies. You can try different color combinations and patterns as well as mixing different types of flowers.

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

Violeta's Smiles Layout

Hello everyone, my name is Violeta Scrap and I am so excited to share this layout with you using Amy Tangerine´s collections.

This layout is about my travel to Malaysia. As you can see I used so many flowers as embellishments which match perfectly with the colors, patterns and icons on this collection. They are so fresh and lovely!

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

I had so much fun with this page and was surprised at how quickly it came together. I started out with a white sheet of cardstock and I decided to add some color using yellow ink. And since the white cardstock I used was textured, it just added more dimension.

Whimsical and colorful, that's what I think when I see “Oh happy life” collection. The icons and color palette are versatile for telling any kind of story.

I put some flowers that you can find in the “Oh happy life” collection. I included in the layout clear stickers, Thickers, washi tape, and ephemera. I cuted some words from one of apart sheets and used them in the page as ephemera.

My title “smiles” was also made using Thickers from “On a whim” collection.

I liked the page as it was but I thought I could make it look a little bit more interesting. So I cut a half inch from one side of the cardstock, then I adhered it to this great white and yellow patterned paper from the “Oh happy life” collection. I love how it turned out!

This bright and fresh little collection really made my photos shine and I know it will do the same for yours. Next time you're stuck on what to scrapbook next, take a look at your products and see what stories you mind conjures up!

This flamingo wants to know...

Flamingo Emoji please!!

I mean seriously, right? Happy World Emoji Day!

Had some yellow paper on my desk leftover from a shoot and had to use my favorite new Tombow brush pens and the flamingo from this pack of inflated ephemera to draw this up.
