I am thrilled to share with you projects by creative team member Julie Bonner. She is truly an amazing designer. She is so creative in how she thinks to arrange a layout. She is great at balancing her designs and always putting an unexpected twist in how she arranges her layouts. I'd love to hop inside Julie's brain when she's thinking of how she's going to put together a layout...it must be fun in there...with all the creativity buzzing around. What makes Julie even more amazing...she created these layouts in her third trimester of pregnancy...I know my head was spinning by then. She's expecting her wee little one next month. Congratulations, Julie...so excited for you!
Okay...now off to share Julie's gorgeous work.
Check out this amazing design by Julie! Okay...now I just love all that striped space and how it sets the mood for this layout. Love the photo cluster on the left...this design is truly brilliant! She used papers and stickers from my Harvest and Halloween collections for Creative Imaginations.
Now I want to show you a close-up...See those brown leaves???? Those are punched from a product called: "Real Wood" by Creative Imaginations. They come in 12 x 12 sheets of adhesive-backed wood & you can punch them - how cool is that???? They also come in a few different thicknesses. I think these make the perfect embellishments for this fall-themed page!!!! Gorgeous work, Julie!
Okay...this is one of those...now "why didn't I think of doing that," moments. I love that she used the tags, cut them, and didn't write anything on them. She just used them for the shape. Now that's the kind of creativity I'm telling you about...Julie's amazing!
Oh...let me begin by saying, I love how this layout has such a soft, almost vintage feel. Maybe it's the subtle background with the stamped tone on tone snowflakes...it's a gorgeous piece. Julie used paper and stickers from my Christmas traditions collection for Creative Imaginations. Julie also used my Swirling Snow stamps set for Unity Stamp company. This stamp set coordinates perfectly with my Christmas Traditions collection.
Here's a close-up on the layered postage stamp die-cuts. Here, Julie used both the front & back of my Snowflakes paper and added a bit of cream paint & stitching. The chipboard snowflakes were sprayed first with Studio Calico Mr.Huey in calico cream & then spritzed with Luminarte Radiant Rain Shimmering Mist in Solar Gold for Creative Imaginations . This shimmering mist is simply gorgeous!!!! It's gorgeous in person...photos never do it justice.
Here's another close-up on the background & journaling. Julie says that she is not a stamper but secretly wishes she was. I think julie's a closet stamper, because this layout is gorgeous with her stamping technique. Way to go, Julie!
I am so glad I got to share these layouts with you...but you must go to Julie's blog and bookmark it so you can remember to visit often. She's always crafting something...and it's always good.
