on a mission to create...

Recently, I was asked to be a guest designer for a neat blog called Mission to Create! Our assignment was to create a layout using at least 3 out of 5 of these items:

1. the color beige or cream
2. stripes and polkadots
3. an envelope
4. a doily
5. something clear.

On my page, I chose to use the color cream (the vintage paper background), stripes and polkadots (on the hearts/circles) and something clear. The clear item I used is a pin in the center with some sheer flowers on it by Maya Road.





Because I couldn't decide which photos to share of this layout, I will just post a bunch! I first thought of the vintage paper when I thought of creme, so that's where I started my layout. It came in one of my Jenni Bowlin kits. I love the script look in the background! Next, I wanted to add some white for crispness, so I punched a bunch of circles from white cardstock. Lastly, I looked through my stash and found these heart die cuts by My Mind's Eye and then picked out lots of cute prints to add! I just started punching circles and trimming some of them with my pinked scissors and layering them together.
Here is the pin with the sheer flowers:
And the journaling:

I LOVE these mini chipboard words that I used down the side of the page by Dusty Attic. If you have never seen their chipboard pieces before, I would highly recommend that you visit their site!!! (enabler alert! :))

Thanks for stopping by!
Danielle

Supplies used: papers - Love Me Do by My Mind's Eye, vintage book paper, On Holiday by Girls Paperie, Fresh Print Clothesline by Little Yellow Bicycle, Crate paper, Basic Grey and October Afternoon. Chipboard - Dusty Attic, alphas - American Crafts, sheer flowers - Maya Road.
