Creative Team Projects by Mendi and Brigit

Today we have a special treat by having 2 of our talented Creative Team Members sharing projects with us. First we have Mendi, her blog is here if you want more info…

Today I have a new layout up on Lori Whitlock’s blog using her adorable Sweet Girl Collectionshe designed for Echo Park.  I thought for a slight change of pace I would try a layout where diecutting would take on more of a complimentary role to all the cute embellishments that come with this fun collection.


With my addiction to diecuts I must admit that sometimes I have an adversion to stickers (particularly ones with a white border), but with a little fussy cutting I was able to trim the banner border and one of the pinwheels to fit my style perfectly.  This line has so many adorable images.  Love the dimensional hot air balloon!

For my title I cut out the word “happy” from the patterned paper, inked the edges and popped the squares up with foam tape to carry out the Scrabble tile feel.  The word “girl” was diecut using Lori’s My Girl Titles cutting file.

I also used her Banner Flag Set which I elongated by welding the pennant to a rectangle of the same width.   To anchor my title I used an enlarged label from her 14 Labels set paired with a couple of darling brads from the collection.

Next we have Brigit sharing her first project on the blog.

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and I thought this cute card and box from Lori’s shop would make a wonderful gift set.

I chose digital paper and elements from Echo Park’s For The Record 2 Tailored, I love the flower pattern, the colors are beautiful.

For the Mom Shaped Card I used some elements from the paper collection and one of the flowers from the Layered Flowers Set 2.  The pretty pink and cream bow is Trendy Twine’s Posy.  This card also comes with an envelope.

Love this Window Treat Box, it comes with the matching bracket tag.  I added the internal offset shadow layer and did a print and cut on my Cameo for the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment.  The same flower was used from the Layered Flower Set 2 on the tag.  The box is tied closed with some homemade pink crinkle ribbon.
