Just the 2 of Us
Supplies: Shimelle (368136) – Goodall, Shimelle (368165) – Dimensional Stickers, Shimelle (368164) – Letter Stickers, Shimelle (368166) – Accent & Phrase Stickers

How to: I love to mix a variety of colors and add in a touch of black! So for this card I used the Goodall patterned paper and the black alphas from the letter stickers pack to go along with the inspiration image I found on Pinterest. And to add interest to the sentiment I used the large No. 2 from the chipboard pack by mixing it in with my letter stickers.

You're Lovely
Supplies: Shimelle (368158) – Dowdy, Shimelle (368139) – Hurley, Shimelle (368164) – Letter Stickers, Shimelle (368166) – Accent & Phrase Stickers, Shimelle (368171) – Photo Overlays

How to: I started my card by pulling colors from the Shimelle collection, based on the color scheme I found on Pinterest. Then I cut a cardstock base at 11 inches x 4.25 inches and folded it in half. Next, I cut a 5.5 inch x 4.25 inch rectangle from the Dowdy patterned paper and used it to cover the front of my card. I love the versatility of the Photo Overlays so I decided to use one as a pocket on the front of my card. I used a tiny attacher to adhere the transparency to my card, but you could also use machine or hand stitching. I placed one of the journaling cards cut from the Goodall patterned paper to use as my card sentiment and finished it with stickers from the letter stickers pack.
