Robin's Nest, Animal Prints and Gina's Design

Hi, here today with my first Design Team post with the amazing Robin's Nest 
and am anxious to share Robin's Nest Animal Prints and Gina Design Accents.
It is really amazing once you get going as to what you can do with these prints .. and
I didn't even use it for any animal  or nature layout pages. Hope you like some of my examples
 and are inspired to use these fun prints to make your pages too.

The first page is a Family Affair
Supply List: 
Teal Giraffe Cardstock
Ace of Diamonds Dew Drops
Dew Drops Mini
Gina's Design:  Cardstock Doiley Set Intricates
Miniatures Shape Set - Ladies Choice
Punch: Kreaxions #303
Pen: Signo white gel
Other: flowers, stickles, chipboard letters, sticker letters,cardstock

In the close ups I'll share some of the details.

Lots of fun layers and the doily accent with more fabulous stones to 
accent into the shape for even more dimension and depth.
 Even a very small thin punched border gives the layers added colour and depth.

This corner has a floral flower with stickled petals and the shiney stones  are add to the centre.
In the corners I doodled the stitches with a Signo white gel pen.


This amazing cluster boasts Gina's doilies and the
 mini shapes with some added glitter stones.
Together they add an elegant touch to the page.

Next up is Family
Supply List:
Robin's Nest: Pink Zebra Glitter Cardstock
Black n White Animal Print
Black n White Glitter Paws
Chocolate Glitter Leopard Cardstock
Freedom Tear Drops
Gina's Design: Banner Builder Dovetail Minis
Border Punch: EK Success, Kreaxions #310
Pen: Signo white gel, micro black
Other: cardstock, toothpick flag, ric rak, twine, washi tape,

In the close ups I'll share some of the details.

For the title I choose to use the banner set by Gina's Design and added some 
Sticker letters. In the punched accent I added washi tape and some doodling .
In this section you also catch a glimpse of the ric rak and the cute flag
 made with cardstock and a toothpick.
 In the border is a punched section which I matted with pink cardstock so
the punch would pop off the page.

Twine is every where right now and I chose to wrap it around the 
mat piece a few times and tie a bow. Using pink added more pop of colour
that is pulled from the Pink Zebra Glitter paper.

This close up shows the Freedom Tear Drops... 
just along the pink zebra paper and the pink pop of border... 
Makes for an clustered section of pink.

Last but not least I have a Shaker Birthday card for you with a short tutorial on
How to make a Shaker Card.
Supply List:
Robin's Nest: Blue Glitter Elephant
Pink Glitter Leopard Cardstock
Riverside Mini Dew Drops
Dew Drops Mini
Gina's Design: Banner Builder Dovetail Minis
Pen: signo white gel
Stickers: SRM Stickers
Other: twine, foam

You start with a card base size (bottom centre photo).... and on it you can faintly see the pencil marked
box where I would like the shaker section to be.
On the upper left is a piece of plastic the same size as the penciled box.
I actually cut this plastic from a kids game that I pulled apart.
On the upper right is a box frame with the outer edge the same as
the original penciled box on the outside and I just
cut the inside of box smaller than the thin foam I am using
so the foam will be covered.

Here is the box pencil line covered with thin foam leaving
no visible openings to she beads or stones done ever come out.
Fill the inside with stones as many as you'd like. I don't over
fill it because I still would like the picture of the elephants shows through.
You then put your piece of plastic on top of the stones and over the foam
covering it totally from view. now place the frame on top of the plastic.

The last step is to accent the rest of the card any way you'd like.
I choose to use the Gina's Design banner pieces and added 
Pink Glitter Leopard Cardstock on top of them.. 
and added some twine to accent and finish the banner.
The frame has some white gel pen doodles, and the ric rak border, 
sentiment and heart are SRM Stickers.
It really is easy to make shaker cards.. just follow the easy to follow instructions.

 Thanks for stopping by and don't forget we have Animal Prints on sale this month at 20% off.
