Guest designer for We R Memory Keepers

Awhile back I posted a card to the We R Memory Keepers facebook page that I had made with their Peep collection. You can view a picture of it here. Well, I was delighted and thrilled when they contacted me and invited me to be a guest designer for them. They sent me some paper and goodies from their Down On The Boardwalk collection and gave me free reign to create whatever I would like.

I'd like to share the projects I came up with for them.

The first is an invitation which has a slot you can put a small sample size of sunscreen in. I thought it would be so fun for a pool or beach party. The cut file for this is a chapstick card which I enlarged  to 9 X 11.525, so the slot could hold a small tube of sunscreen instead. When closed it measures
4 X 5 1/8 X 1. The title is also cut out with a Silhouette Studio cut file.

I added the cute bottom cut off strip to the right side of the inside. I stamped the invite on patterned paper, matted it and attached to the left inside. The flip flops are a Silhouette Studio cut file.

Supplies used: patterned papers - Sunbathe, Sea Breeze, Gone Surfin and Waves from Down On The Boardwalk by We R Memory Keepers; corner rounder - Fiskars; ribbon - my stash; Silhouette Studio cut files; letter stickers - Authentique; stamp - Hero Arts; suntan lotion.

Next I'd like to share a couple of easy, peasy cards I made. Both using a couple of their darling tags as the focal point of the front of the cards.

Supplies used: cardstock - kraft, brown; patterned papers - Barnacle & Beachball in Down On The Boardwalk by We R Memory Keepers; tags from Down on the Boardwalk by We R Memory Keepers; ribbon - my stash; brads - Basic Grey and my stash; photo corner punch - EK Success.

And, last but not least, I'd like to share a layout:

Supplies used: patterned papers - Barnacle, Coastline, Beach Towel, Gone Surfin, Beachball and Sunbathe all from Down On The Boardwalk by We R Memory Keepers; chipboard stickers - Layered Chipboard in Down On The Boardwalk by We R Memory Keepers; crochet lace - Down On The Boardwalk by We R Memory keepers; circle punches - EK Success; Silhouette Studio Cut Files; sewing machine; rub on - American Crafts; bubble dots - my stash.

This is a super fun line of paper and embellishments, just perfect for any summer themed project you may have in mind. I hope my creations have given you some inspiration of what you can do with these fantastic papers. 

I would like to thank We R Memory Keepers for giving me this wonderful opportunity! It was so much fun playing with all their great products. I am honored that they thought enough of one of my creations to ask me to be a guest designer for them!!

Hop on over to the We R Memory Keepers facebook page, "like" them while you're there and give them a shout out that I sent you.! They have lots of wonderful inspiration for you.
