Lori Whitlock Creative Team July 2020 Blog Hop

Hi there and welcome to the Lori Whitlock July 2020 blog hop! The order this month is Traci, Anita, Brandie, Aimee, Ashley, Cathy, and Michelle

Have you seen the new word art in the shop? (Around the House Phrase Bundle) So cute. I used the Laundry Room Help Needed (SVG, Silhouette) to make this sign. I resized the image to be a 9x9 square and cut out in black vinyl. I then applied it to a DIY sign blank I found at Walmart. 

Now if I can just get the help with the never ending pile of laundry! LOL! Thanks for hopping along with us today.  Aimee is up next.

Paige Taylor Evans Guest Designer

 Hi there friends, Brandie Adams here from Conviviality Crafts! (Blog, IG, Facebook) I'm so excited to be one of Paige's Guest Designers and share three of my projects with you using Paige's cut files. 

My first layout I used the Zinia Flower #295917 This cut file is one that does not have a outline that encloses the image. I used the negative pieces to create the flower image rather than backing the positive image the cut file creates. I used fun foam under all of the petals to give the flower dimension and shadows. I the embellished with stickers, floral ephemera, and enamel dots. The patterned paper and sticker embellishments are from the Truly Grateful Collection. The flowers and tassel are from the Whimsical Collection. 

I love sunflowers and when I saw the Sunflower #320995  cut file I knew I had to make a mini album with it. I sized the sunflower to 5.5 width and 5.3 height. For the cover of the mini album I cut one sunflower with all the details and backed the center with a dark brown cardstock and paper from the Truly Grateful Collection I also cut seven more sunflowers of just the outline to crate a solid sunflower for the pages of the mini album. 

I embellished with pattern papers, stickers, and word stickers  from the Truly Grateful collection. I also used several flower ephemera from the Whimsical collection. The gold Thickers and ribbon are all from my stash. 

For my last layout I used the Maze Background #267505 I paired it with the rainbow colors in the Turn the Page collection to create a fun candy land themed layout. For embellishments I made some peaked flags and tags from paper, chipboard stickers, and the mini foam alphas, and several stickers from the Paige Evans sticker book. I also did a messy stich down the center line to hold everything in place. 

 This has been so fun to create with Paige's cut files and Pink Paisley collections. Thanks for having me!
