We also want to leave you with gorgeous inspiration from our Design Team! We are in love with this vibrant layout by Nadya Lifa using Bohemian Bazaar! This perfectly captures the joy and youth of her beautiful daughter and has so many beautiful details and gorgeous composition.

"In this page, I really wanted to capture the spirit of the Bohemian Bazaar, which affects its abundance of details, where mixed styles and colors of the rainbow! LO is very bright and cheerful, really have summer mood! I deliberately picked a photo with the same shades of colors that are in the paper: red, blue, yellow. It seems, that this paper is better to scrap child or family summer photos!!!!" ~Nadya

First we have a beautiful Couture pin and tutorial from Lori. Take it away, Lori!

"I love the era of the big bands, flapper dresses and the bold style of art deco.  So when I saw the Couture Collection I knew I had to turn it into some type of wearable art.  I created this elegant and fun pin that just screams to be worn on the lapel of a jacket and I’ll show you how to make your own pin…using Couture Collection or any Graphic 45 paper of your choice.  In fact the pins are really simple and fun you could make several to hand out for gifts."~Lori

Next, we have these amazing domino An Eerie Tale pendants from Nichola! Read all about it below:

"
I adore the images used on the pages of An Eerie Tale. I am, in fact, so smitten with them that I would wear them with pride on my personage! So I decided that to create some simple (yet totally eerie and adorable) domino pendants with some of my favourite images. Best of all you can use the tiniest of precious scraps to create these wee cuties. (You do save your scraps don’t you?)

I happened to have some dominoes in my stash but I’ve seen boxes a-plenty in thrift shops. First I used a domino as a stencil to cut out the appropriate shape, inked the edges, then applied a layer of quality white glue to adhere the image to the surface of the domino. When dried, I applied a thick top coat of Mod Podge Dimensional Magic and added a blank pendant with a bail on the back. Easy peasy!" ~Nichola
