There are so many amazing details to look at on Monique's layout.  Check it out!!

Monique Liedtke

Hi everyone! Monique here with another Family Fun layout of 2 of my kids having fun at Chuck-E-Cheese's. My daughter spent last year in the US as a foreign exchange student and when we went to visit her last month we just had to go to Chuck-E-Cheese. My youngest had been begging for months to go there, but taking him was just an excuse, all of my 3 kids love it there!

The colors and images of the "Big Winner" paper are just perfect for photos taken at Chuck-E-Cheese. Normally I don't reach for the color purple to scrap with, but for this photo purple is just right.

For the white background cardstock I used a bit of light green watercolor paint (another color I don't often use) and added drops of silver color mist. I also added a couple of glam rocks and a couple of coin stickers. 

I positioned all of my layers on the left side of my page, of which the black checkered papers is my favorite. I also love to use digital cut files and chose this hearts cut file to place beneath my photo. 

I try to add more journaling to my pages, especially hand written journaling, so that's what I did and last but not least I also drew a thin black line along to edge of my layout.

Blueberry Garden

We just love the sunshine design that Marcia created using our Milk Paint.

'Blueberry Garden'

Ever since buying our first house, I have had a garden!  I sometimes have to ask myself why I bother, especially after spending 4 hours weeding the thing and every muscle in my body hurts. I could just go to the Farmer's Market after all. Like scrapbooking, I find it therapeutic though. I like seeing my plants flourish. I like being able to share my bounty with family and friends as well as feed my family well into the winter months and I know that everything I grow is organic. Over the years I have tried various different plants. When my daughter had a pet rabbit, I grew lettuce, kale, spinach, and lots of herbs. Last year, I decided to try growing my own blueberries. I bought hybrid bushes that could withstand the Minnesota cold winters, and was thrilled to see that they all survived their first winter. Now I just have to wait and see if they will produce fruit. 

My layout today documents my blueberry gardening attempt. I selected a variety of the blue pattern papers from Heartland Farms. 

To add a little more color, I mixed some Imaginisce milkpaint with a little gesso to create a paste I could use with a stencil to create my sun rays. 

I even included a few blueberry i-Top brads :)

I Love You

In case you think that our new collection, Heartland Farm, is just for your visits to the farm or zoo - design team member Stephanie shows you how to use this collection to capture some lovely pictures of her & her son.

Stephanie Dang

Hi! It's Stephanie from paperANDi, sharing some sweet mother & son inspiration for you featuring Heartland Farm by Imaginisce.

I started out with a base. I splattered some black mist ink here and there. I cut out assorted sizes of patterned papers and layered them together. I added my photos on top of those adorable "Heartland Farm" papers. 

I also added a whole lot of phrase die cuts from Imaginisce's Heartland Farm. And for the perfect finishing touches, I used my favorite Imaginisce tool, "i-Rock tool" and heated a few lovely gems around my page. 

Hope you loved my creation and gained a bit of inspiration! Happy Summer everyone!!

Summer Fruit 3D Decor

How adorable is this little summer time ensemble.  Perfect table decor for a summer party!

Summer, summer, summer...I love it and all that comes along with it.  Guiseppa here and I am so excited to see all of the fresh fruits and vegetables that have been growing in my yard.  My berries are growing so well and I am excited to start eating them.  Every time I am outside, I love to snag a few off my bushes.  So, when I saw these adorable Strawberry designs in the Silhouette Store, I knew they were perfect to use with the Heartland Farm Collection and they remind my of my summer berries.

This first one is a strawberry purse.  I used the Heartland Farm patterned papers, the I-Rock and Hot Rock Gems to resemble the seeds of the strawberry and some cardstock from American Crafts.

Look at this adorable jar...I really love this one and again more Heartland Farm patterned papers and Hot Rocks!  The little strawberry is from the Heartland Farm Die Cut Cardstock Shapes.

Lastly this fun strawberry card...continuing with the same supplies that are on the purse and jar.  What a cute set right?  This would be a good gift set to give to someone as a "get well", "just because" or "I am thinking about you", kind of gift.  I have a feeling this set will be gone real soon.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today and I also hope that you pull out you Imaginisce Tools frequently and use them.  They add so much to all kinds of crafting projects.  Thanks fro stopping in and until next time!

In the Beginning ....

We love the stitching & quilt like design that Suzanna has created on this layout showcasing her daughter at a young age.

The Heartland Farm collection has been just perfect for pictures of my horse loving girl! This layout is about the beginning (yes, it IS spelled wrong in the title, you did see correctly), the one event that kicked off this love and passion.

I love the country feel of this layout so zig zag stitching pieces of the patterned papers together as a quilt was a no brainer. The colors I chose are a bit patriotic but it was more to reflect the colors that my daughter is wearing than any other purpose.

Having altered the colors of the original photo to age it a bit, there needed to be some layers to really make the picture stand out against the background. There are plenty of reds and blues in this collection for that very purpose!

I have been saving this die cut horse for THE right layout. And here it is!

Thanks for stopping in today! For those of you in the northern hemisphere, I hope your summer is off to a good start! I am sure you will have plenty of "Heartland Farm" moments this summer and can't wait to see what you create with this fantastic collection!
