It's A Small World- Projects by Erika Taylor

Hello everyone and HAPPY WEDNESDAY!!! Erika Taylor here today. It has been a while since I've been present in the crafting community and I'm so excited to be back. After taking a hiatus for 3 months, I am back in the saddle and here to share with you two projects I've created using the whimsical papers by Susan K Weckesser "Live In Color". These happy papers were exactly what I needed to get my creative mojo back up and running.

I used a combination of the entire line to create this layout and paired them up with two Susan K Weckesser stamp sets from Unity Stamp Company. I love the hearts in the A Little Grunge Love set. There are 2 sizes and they are super fun to work with.I also used the heart washi stamp in A Little Bit Washi paired with some tissue paper to create my own tape. Let's take a look shall we?

The flowers on the papers reminded me pf the flowers in the It's A Small World ride at Disney World, so off I went to print out a few from our trip we took at Christmas time. Perfect matches I think. Isn't that little birdie in the corner precious!!!

I used a combination of Peridot, Vintage and Denim Mix'd Media inks from Clearsnap, to create the hearts. A little Matte Clear embossing powder from Wow to give them some texture and voila!!!

Love how the layout turned out. I was scared to create again after such a long break and although I feel like a rookie again, I sure am enjoying the process.

I also created a quick card for you today as a bonus. A combination of greens and pinks on this one and a metal butterfly from Momenta. I thought the sentiment was perfect for my "return" into the industry. It's been a while, but remember when...

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today and leaving your comments. We always like to hear your thoughts on things and today I could really use a thought or two shared. Until next time
