Guest Designer @ 13 Arts~!

**For my February Giveaway, please go HERE**

Hello :)! It's the weekend- and a longer one for my family as my husband got to have Friday off. So I've been busy crafting and have lots of things to share coming up in this next week! But today I'm very happy to share with you that I am a Guest Designer at 13 Arts and I have a couple of projects to show you :)~!

I was lucky to be able to play with both of Ayeeda's beautiful collections, "Frosted Life" & the brand new "All is Love". I mixed and matched the two here and had just a wonderful time playing! 

Let's take a look:

"You Are Amazing, My Girl"
I love how these papers bring out my "artsy" side! I couldn't believe it- I actually distressed the edges of my paper :). Believe it or not, just a year ago I used to distress EVERYTHING- and generally had multiple layers in my distressed edges. But it's something I've gotten away from- not for any particular reason. I think I have two sides of myself constantly fighting one another: the one side that is a linear perfectionist in which everything must have its place and though my style is "full", it still wants a clean design; and then the other side of me that loves to throw a mess around and see what happens! But I think the two of these personalities came together here :).

The hearts you see here are from the "All is Love" sticker sheet. I just cut them out before sticking them on. And my title was cut from the "Love Letters" paper. I love their doily-like shape!

The banner was also cut from the "Love Letters" paper :).

Products Used:

All is Love "Follow Your Heart"
All is Love "Big Love"
All is Love "Love Letters"
All is Love Sticker Sheet
Frosted Life "Moon Dust"

Other Products Used:

Ornate Medallions

I've also created a tag:

"Sweet Love" Tag
You probably know by now how much I love tags :). Working with these collections made putting this tag together a breeze! So many beautiful patterns just begging to be played with :).

Products Used:

All is Love "Forever"
All is Love "Love Letters"
Frosted Life "Found in the Sky"

Thanks so much for coming on over to have a look. If you haven't yet, stop over at the 13 Arts blog! They're having a design team/guest design team call going on right now- so don't miss out!

Have a wonderful day :),

I don't think I've seen these papers before, but they are beautiful. I love what you did with the layout. Everything looks perfect. And that tag--let me tell you, tags are my favorite. I love, love, love this one you made. You're layer always looks so pretty. I haven't quite mastered that technique yet.
