Custom 2016 Planner-DCWV

Welcome DCWV fans! It’s Jenifer from the DCWV Social Media Design Team!  I would like to share a project using two of the new Stacks found at Joann's.  I used the new Paper Backed Denim stack and the beautiful Ocean Breeze stack and put together this fun 2016 planner that I just can't wait to use.

I love that the Denim is paper backed.  It made it easier to use and it didn't fray on me.  I used a layer of batting in between my chipboard and the denim to give my cover a little bit of padding.  I used some lace and grosgrain ribbon along the spine to make it a little sturdier.

Every month has a beautiful patterned paper folded to give the month a pocket to hold items and scraps of paper, I also have sewed down little bits of ribbons as tabs so the months are easier to find.

Here is the first inside page with a beautiful quote and a nice pocket.
Here are a few examples of some of the monthly folders to show you just how beautiful these papers are.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my project today.  This Ocean Breeze stack is one of my absolute favorite stacks.  I already love the nautical look but changing out the typical red with a beautiful pink really gives it a very feminine feel.
If you are interested in putting together your own planner go out to pinterest there are a bunch of free planner pages you can print out.

Fall Wreath-May Arts

Hi May Arts fans!!  Jenifer here with you today to share my new Fall wreath.  One of my favorite things to do with May Arts ribbons is create new wreaths.  I have made more than my share over the years but I just can't help myself.

This Fall wreath uses some of my favorite burlap ribbons and some flowers made from the Indian Summer paper pack from DCWV.
This wreath is all about layers.  Start with your burlap, then the wired pearls and ending with the wired bows to give it a little bit more sparkle and texture.  Make your flowers, both paper and ribbon. I used this tutorial to make my paper flowers.  For the ribbon flowers I folded the ribbon in half and made cuts every 1/4" or so then I rolled it in on itself.  I pinned everything down with pins and beads. 

Here is a fun close up of the flowers.

Beauty-Wow Layout

Welcome Wow fans, Jenifer here with you today to share a layout I created using some of the new stamps, embossing colors and moulds.
I just knew when I saw the new Long Island Teal embossing powder I had to use it.  It coordinated with this picture that I took of a robins nest that we had in our tree a few years ago and it just went from there.

I stamped with the Chrysanthemum stamp directly onto the wood grain patterned paper to give it just a pop of color.  I sprayed a little gold, teal and white mists onto the paper and let them blend and drip down the page.  I layered some string and doilies together to balance out my picture and called it good.

I have been asking for a feather mould for a long time now and I can tell you it was definitely worth the wait.  Just look how beautiful they are and with all of the detail I know that I will be using them on tons of things.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my layout today, make sure you stop by often to see some of my teammates beautiful work.

Tuesday Tutorial-Ruby Rock-It

Hi there Ruby Rock-It fans!!  This is Jenifer here with you today to share a fun but super simple idea to help make your patterned paper work for you.

I know it is hard to cut into the beautiful papers from the Rustic Charm collection, it is definitely a struggle for me to make that first cut into that gorgeous paper.  But by making just a few cuts you can turn it into creative elements on your page.

By cutting into some of the triangles I reapplied them to help highlight my photo.  It can be really easy to cut into some of those patterned papers and get those elements working for you.

I hope I have inspired you to look at your patterned papers a different way.  The possibilities are endless.
