Violeta's Stay Sweet Layout

Hello! This is Violeta Scrap and I want to show you how to create a new layout using Amy Tangerine’s collection Stay Sweet. It is a very fun and colorful collection so I hope you like this layout.

Violeta's Stay Sweet Layout

For this layout, I have used a picture with a white frame and a size of 6x4 inches in which I am with my colleagues. To make this layout I have used as a base a 12x12 inches white cardstock. Then I have placed the picture in the middle of the layout and at the bottom and the top of the picture, I have put some letters that are included in the sticker book of the collection Stay Sweet by Amy Tangerine. 

In addition, I have put some transparent stickers in different parts of the layout. Below the picture, I have put the title of the layout and more decorative elements. For the title of the layout, I have used different stickers and the alphabet from the Stay Sweet collection by Amy Tangerine. Moreover, I have put as decorative elements some blue heart enamel dots and above on the right I have placed some colorful letters and a blue sticker.

To add more color to the layout I have used the watercolor set from the Stay Sweet collection by Amy Tangerine. I have added some drops of blue watercolor in the entire project. Adding drops of watercolor to scrapbook projects give color to the projects.

I hope you liked the project that it is very easy to make, but if you have, any questions leave them in the comments section. I hope to be back soon with new projects to show.

Lots of love,

Slice of Life is Here!

Pumpkin Spice, crisp crunchy leaves on the pavement, a hint of chill in the air – I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Autumn is right around the corner. My newest collection from American Crafts, Slice of Life, is all about celebrating the cool crisp vibes in the most colorful, vibrant way possible. I walk through the entire collection in a YouTube video item-by-item so you can see everything for yourself.  I hope you *fall* for it as hard as I did.

Slice of Life is Here

I wanted something to encapsulate the bright, warmth of fall, so this collection features a whimsical set of icons and images. Think of laid back, crisp Autumn days, cozy striped sweaters, comfort food and fall foliage. I’m going to give you a glimpse of each item in the collection. I can’t wait to see all the gorgeous things you all will create with Slice of Life. Hopefully, you have time to check out the video or even better yet– make a bee-line to your closest local crafts store and see the items for yourself. If not, I’m including three highlights from the collection here: 

Slice of Life is Here
  1. Paperclips -  Unfortunately, I’m allergic to cats so these adorable bookmarks are the closest I can get to our feline furry friends, so I’ll just go ahead and say that these are just PURRRR fect, hahaha see what I did there?

  2. Acrylic Stamps - Okay so stamping is a bit of an obsession of mine and now I want to share the love. This set of 13 acrylic stamps will help add ink and dimension to your pages – whether you need a tiny paw print, cluster of hearts, or a unique way to say hooray, these are sure to make a good impression. 

  3. Mini puffy stickers - pastries, pets, and pretzels...What’s not to love about this cute sheet of mini puffy stickers? Tiny enough to fit anywhere you might need, this set is a colorful reminder to  look on the bright side, enjoy your tea, and embrace those autumn vibes. 

Slice of Life is Here

For the rest of the collection, be sure to watch the video and stay tuned for more projects using it on my Instagram. Be sure to let me know– what do you think about Slice of Life? Which items are you most excited to try out? Do you have a favorite pattern? I love hearing from you all and seeing the amazing things you create. 

Zinia's Watercolor Cards

Hello everyone! It’s Zinia here and today I’d like to share with you a few fun and easy card ideas using the new Amy Tangerine Stay Sweet Watercolor set.

One of the many things I love about this set is the colors. They are so beautiful and vibrant straight from the pans that you don’t need to worry about mixing beautiful shades.

Zinia's Watercolor Cards

So for my first card, I used the colors straight from the pans and I created a rainbow stripped pattern design. Every time I run through my brush with a new color, I let it touch the previous strip so that the colors bleed into each other a bit.

For my second card, I wanted to focus more on that bleeding effect so this time, I created circles of color and let them touch with each other so the colors mix on their own. This technique really creates breathtaking results.

To create the next card I used a craft mat. I picked some colors and scribbled them down on the mat, then I added a spritz of water and dipped my card into the color. This is what people call the smooshing technique cause you basically smoosh your card panel into the colors to get a random but beautiful design.

For my last card I created an ombre effect with a twist. Instead of going from one side to the other with my gradient of colors, I used a circle shape and went from the outer edges of my card towards the center. This creates sort of like a tunnel effect and it really makes everyone focus on the center of the card.

Now to turn these watercolor panels into cards I added various stickers as sentiments. Also instead of mounting them on a regular card base, I decided to adhere them on some of the lovely cards that come in the Stay Sweet card set.
