***I have two posts today, if you get a chance, please feel free to take a peek at my other post, click HERE :)
Hi there! Today I'm sharing my final project as a guest designer for Gina's Designs. I am honored and grateful to have been invited to join along as a guest designer on the Gina's Designs blog (click HERE) showcasing some of her amazing chipboard products that may be found in the Gina's Designs online store (click HERE). I would like to thank Gina for the wonderful opportunity and thanks to all of you who took the time to visit and leave such kind and encouraging comments :)
For my final project, I created a layout featuring of sweet Meredith that was taken at the top of a volcano on Maui surrounded by fabulous designs from the following Gina's Designs sets: Scribbled Frames and Lines, Fern Fronds, Words & Phrases 2, and Curly Cages:
The title is one of the many fun designs included in the Words & Phrases 2 set. Both layered frames and scribbled lines at the top of the page are from the Scribbled Frames and Lines set:
To make the chipboard pieces "pop", I heat embossed all the designs:
All three fancy bird cages are from the Curly Cages set:

For color inspiration, I joined along with the current Scrap Africa challenge:
and for sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Stuck?! sketch challenge:
Many thanks for stopping by! Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the Gina's Designs blog for some outstanding creative inspiration and if you are looking to add some great quality chipboard designs to your craft stash, please be sure to visit the Gina's Designs store (click HERE).
