Just Breathe

Happy Thursday! Today I've got a little hybrid project for you using a brand new digi collection by Kelley Mickus called Just Breathe. Don't you just love that name? The papers will make you want to do just that, too - they're all so breathtakingly lovely. When I saw them, I immediately thought of making a cute little set of notecards and a matching box. I started with the dimensions for the top and bottom of the box from Laurie's tutorial on SCS. From there I strayed off on my own and just cut pieces of my printed digi papers in strips 1/8" smaller than each panel. I like the look of the white matting setting off each panel, and I increased the contrast by inking the edges of each panel with Frayed Burlap distress ink. For the top of the box, I chose a section of the flower paper included in the Just Breathe collection and added some tiny rhinestones and some red hemp twine. The tag is cut with Nestabilities tags and I used a sentiment from the Chocolate Bunnies set.



For one of the cards in the set, I just layered a couple of the papers over each other, using one of the Piercabilities borders to cut the blue paper. The sentiment is one of the Verve freebie stamps that was sent out with launch orders this month - a little larger version of the smile stamp from Circular Sayings. I cut out a couple of the little scallop button digi embellishments I printed and added one on a dimensional as an accent for the card, and one on the outside of it's envelope for a little matchy-matchiness.



Okay, that's it for today, peeps! Hope you have a fabulous day! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Oh WOW! This is gorgeous! Ok... I've never worked with digital before. Do you just print onto cardstock - or how does it work? Does it eat up all of your ink really quickly? And, does it 'look' like paper in real life... or is it pixelated? I'm really curious about this. :)
