Mini album "Provence Dream" from Julia MITRA.

Hello everyone!
It's Julia MITRA here to inspire you with charming Provence.
Provence is one of my favorite styles, and creating in this theme is very inspiring! I like lavender colors, fragrant bouquets of purple flowers and a sense of calm and relaxation. So from time to time I'm inspired by lavender and create beautiful works with flowers.
This time I created a mini album in book form on the lock *Provence Dream*.
The album was a wonderful gift for my friends!

Despite the small size (only 17*13 cm), the album holds 20 photos 9*13 cm.

As a basis, I took the old cover of the notebook, very dense and high quality.

So I decided to give the old cover a new life with metallic paint and scrapbook paper.

And for decoration I used our stunning flowers:

Also for the decoration of the cover I used lace, die-cutting, floral and leafy die-cuts, chipboard.

Chipboard as the base of the album, I painted with metallic paint, as well as places added Shabby velour *Mint* (Fabrika Decoru).

The flyleaf of the album is also painted and decorated with text. Dream big!

My album closes with a waxed cord with a metal key charm.

Inside the album I decided to issue in the form of "accordion".

For decoration inside I chose scrap paper from Scrapberry's (window) and Fabrika Dekoru (inside the"accordion").

I'll show you the details...










Thanks for watching!
See you in our future September IAR Challenge in the next time!
With ♥, Julia)

Geek is Chic Card

Hello, Friends!! Design Team Member, Mitsyan Wright, here to bring you more IAR inspiration!!
Recently, I attempted to clean my craft room and got distracted. Apparently, I have far too much stuff that I often forget what amazing crafty treasures I already have. During my "clean up time", I came across an old stamp of a little girl with glasses on and found myself coloring for the rest of the day... Oops!! Where did the time go?! Oh well, there went cleaning!! LOL

I know this has happened to me more than a few times before. Can anyone else relate? 

But then she just inspired me to create a card...

You see, I am a self-proclaimed nerd. I love to read (about any and everything), I love watching the history channel and NatGeo, I love MATH for heaven sakes!! 

And this little nerdy girl reminds me that being nerdy, geeky, brainy, or just plain smart, is OK. I have lots of friends that are also nerd (self-proclaimed or otherwise) and they are all amazing women! Witty & funny and know how to have a great time! So for those brainiac gals out there, this one is for you!!


I Am Roses Supplies Used

Other Supplies Used
Cheeky Geeky Stamp (The Greeting Farm)
Owl Nerds Stamp Set (Pink and Main)
Big Shot (Sizzix)
Thin Fish Tail Banner Dies (Pink and Main)
Mega Runner (Xyron)
VersaFine Onyx Black (Imagine Craft/ Tsukineko)
Clean Color Real Brush Markers (Zig/ Kuretake)
Mixed Media Paper (Strathmore)
110 lb White Card Stock (Recollections)
Green Card Stock (Core'dinations)
CutterBee Scissors (EK Success)
Mermaid Crinkle Ribbon

I first, stamped my image with Versfine Onyx Black ink onto Strathmore Mixed Media Paper. Then, with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers & a water brush, I colored her in. 

Then, using my super sharp CutterBee Scissors, I hand cut my image out.

I created an A2 (4.5" x 5.5") sized card base from 110lb white cardstock and matted it with striped paper from the Pebbles Girl Squad paper pad.

I cut a banner from the pink polka-dot paper (also in the paper pad) using a Pink and Main's Fish Tail Banner Die. Then layered onto my card front.

I die cut a doily from more white cardstock using a Tim Holtz's Doily Die. Then layered that on top of the banner with liquid glue.

Now, here's where all the beautiful flowers come into play. I always start from the bottom up. like so... 

 I die cut stemmed leaves/ vines from mossy green cardstock using dies from Tim Holtz's Garden Greens Die set and tucked them around the doily.

I added the Medium Pink Edge on Soft Green Roses Leaves, then I adhered my little girl in the center of the doily using foam adhesive.

Next, I added the White Mulberry Small May Roses.


I tucked the Pink Small Summer Cottage Paper Flowers between the pink leaves and white roses.

Then, attached a bow made from Crinkle Ribbon.

I attached a large Peony Flower- Pale Pink to the center of it all!! Absolutely gorgeous!!

Lastly, I stamped out the words Geek is Chic onto white cardstock and hand-cut it out with a tiny border around the words and attached it and rhinestone flowers to the bottom of the banner.



And here is the finished card...


I hope you enjoyed today's project and it inspires you to create something beautiful!!

Here's to wishing all my fellow nerdy/ geeky friends an amazing day!
