Scrapdoodles Design Team - Happy Papers!

These papers and projects just make me happy!  I'm loving these bright colors from My Mind's Eye.  This collection is called "My Girl" and it will make you smile.  It's a great collection for spring and summer and lots of girly pages.  Don't have a girl?  Never fear!  MME thought of you, too, when they released the companion line "Boy Crazy."  The colors are a little toned down, but still have great icons and patterns perfect for a variety of scrapbooking pages and projects.  Both of these collections are currently available at Scrapdoodles.
For my first project with this collection, I created a fun wall or door hanging.  I started with an old frame that I spray painted a bright aqua color (I used Rustoleum American Accents in Aqua).  Using just the papers in the "My Girl" collection and inspired by the fun vibe, I cut "hello" with my die cut machine and placed it in a thought bubble outlined in grey pen dots.  The scooter (adorable!) is one of the coordinating stickers, which I backed with cardstock.  The "balloon-flower-bouquet" is also made with a combination of stickers, papers and buttons stuck to lightweight floral wire and tied with 3 colors of We R Memory Keepers twine.  The butterflies are cut from one of the papers and attached with glue dots.  I just love how it turned out and it makes me happy to see it hanging!

My next project is a quick layout.  I started with white cardstock and added a few bits of the patterned paper behind my photos and as a journaling spot.  The washi tape strips and large stickers are also part of the MME collection.  I added a few of the small stickers as well and cut out small bits from the patterned papers and added them to the page.  Some of these I topped with Diamond Glaze.  I also tried a new product - a Viva Decor Pearl Pen in red.  I LOVE this product!  It left a wonderfully round, dimensional red pearl on my page (much like the popular enamal dots).  I was very pleased and my have to add more colors to my collection soon.
