Design Team Highlights

I know it's not technically summer in New England but at 86 degrees (yes, in March!) it sure feels like it! And with that summer-time feeling I'm sharing another layout from Nicole Wise. I'm never quite sure how to use papers that come with a great image on the front, especially when it takes up a large portion of the page. But those challenges don't seem to be a problem for Nicole and I love how she treated this page, following the curve of the sidewalk with her writing and the title. The addition of the sun (love the embossed polka dots) and the clouds...just like a perfect summer day!!

Technique Tuesday

A few weeks ago I held a class on creating cards with usual folds and I loved the results! This is one of my favorites from the class and I thought I'd share a tutorial on how to easily create this card, called a Double Z-Fold layout.

I used beautiful paper from October Afternoon on this card, along with stamps from Sweet 'n Sassy, the You set.

Check out the picture tutorial and video here on Splitcoast. Enjoy!

Design Team Highlights

I have to again apologize for being absent for too long! The store has been madly getting ready for two back-to-back weekend crops and there has been a never ending arrival of new products and products needed for the events so we hae been crazy busy getting ready, which has left little time for blogging! But I think I'm in good shape this week and hope to share a bunch of photos, class updates, and product details! (Oh, I might need to work in a video too!)

Today I'm sharing a beautiful layout from Nicole Wise. Nicole was on our first design team and I asked to be our special guest for the next few months. Not only does Nicole have a great eye for design but the ideas she comes up with are out of this world! She is one creative girl!! You can check out more of her creative goodness on her blog.

Her Spring layout combines wonderful cream cardstock and designer paper from Cosmo Cricket. And what is my favorite creative idea on this page? The paper I gave her contained a bunch of page banners, nothing else. She managed to find the portions of the paper that contained the simple designs (minus words) and punched out the circles, cut out the banners, and other portions for her page. Great idea for using those scraps too!

As always, stop by the store and check out all of our beautiful layouts, submitting by our fabulous design team!
