Christmas 2011 Layout for I Am Roses

LOL ok ...we have ONE more holiday project for ya!!!  Here I created an 8x8 layout using My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Christmas paper my Aloha-BFF, Dayle sent me.  This is the first year I have ever scrapped a Christmas Layout, I usually forget to take photos but this year I was determined to take one,  this was taken at a friends house for their annual tamale Christmas party.  We had lots of fun and my friend had decorated her fireplace just perfectly.  I also HAD to use the gorgeous special big red gardenias Bunma had sent in a recent design team package.

Here are the products I used:

Big Red Gardenia (Special 1)

Mixed All Green Medium Daisy Flowers

Mixed Red Color Cherry Blossoms

0.50 Mini Roses

Here are the pics:

Here's to 2012!

Holiday Card for I Am Roses

Before I roll into Valentine's Day projects, I'll end the holiday crafting season with this card.  I used the Teresa Collins Christmas Home paper and variety of I Am Roses flowers.  I used one of the longer sprays and it looks fantastic, I accented the spray with an I Am Roses red mini rose (yep these are gonna be perfect for those Valentine's Day projects) and one of my favorite flowers, a white 2 inch R77.  I also added a touch of color to the spray with olive green seam binding. 

Here are the I Am Roses products I used:

Long Spray - 2 White Paper Flowers Spray

0.50 Inch Round Roses

2.00 Inch White Roses R77

and here are the pictures:

Thanks for stoppin' by and hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday this year, here's to a fabulous 2012.

I Am Roses 2011 December Color Challenge!

Super excited to be a part of one of the first I Am Roses challenges...and a challenge it was.  If you are on my FaceBook you will know I broke my Sizzix Big Shot!!! Gasp!!!  Totally my bad as I overloaded the thing.  I never knew how much I relied on my Big Shot to create, now I do.  I use it everytime a make I was at a loss.  I made this inspiration card without my Big Shot as the new one was still en route.  I had to get creative fast, so I used a very cute and forgotten embellishment....a Tattered Angels frame!!  Of course I loaded it with some gorgeous I Am Roses flowers!! So......

Are you ready for our first I Am Roses Color Challenge? It’s happening right now. Here’s your chance to win some of the fabulous flowers that our Design Team uses. Head on over to the
I Am Roses Challenge Blog for more details and challenge rules.

Here's my inspiration project!

"Green" 12x12 Layout for I Am Roses

I loved the 12x12 shapes I cut out at my LSS using the Accucut.  Super fun alternative to the regular square 12x12 paper.  I am also still in love with corrugated cardboard and this time painted it with vintage white acrylic paint - I love the look the texture is fantastic.  I also wanted to use these super beautiful green flowers that I recieved in a design team package a few months back.  I love how the green in the pictures matches the green in the flowers.  I love how this layout turned out and how the leaves really look like they could have been one of the leaves in the picture.

Here are the I Am Roses flowers I used for this layout:

Green Daisy Paper Leaves

White Semi Open Rose Buds

White Puffy Semi Rose Buds

White Cherry Blossoms

Random Mixed Sizes of Green Tone

Big White Gardenias

Other Supplies

Bo Bunny Gabrielle Paper
Recycled Corrugated Cardboard
Vintage White Acrylic Paint
Trim from personal stash

The Greeting Farm Blush Society Cards for I Am Roses

I finally got some time to dust off my copics and make some cards with my two new favorite stamps.  For my projects today, I have created two cards using The Greeting Farm Blush Society stamps.  These stamps are way too cute for words (minus the nostrils LOL which I decided not to stamp).  My favorite part of cardmaking is choosing the embellishments, I enjoyed choosing the flowers I used today.  I love the versatility of the rosebuds and I featured 3 different kinds of rosebuds today, I have also featured a mixed sizes set in blue.  The mixed sizes sets come in handy because they all match but they come in different sizes which is great if you want to mix it up on a project!

Here are the I Am Roses flowers I used for these cards:
Random Mixed Sizes of Blue Tone
White Semi Open Rose Buds
Yellow Pink Puffy Semi Rose Buds
White Puffy Semi Rose Buds

Other Supplies
The Greeting Farm Blush Society "Blush Babette"
The Greeting Farm Blulsh Society "Blush Bonnie"
Papertrey  Ink Kraft (Base), White (Interior) Cardstock
Bo Bunny "Gabrielle" Paper 6x6
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Circle, Scallop Circle
Bling: Recollections, Prima
Making Memories J'et Adore Rosette Trim
My Favorite Things Die Namics Polka Dot Greetings Die and Stamp Set

"Giving Thanks" Layout for I Am Roses

I had some leftover Teresa Collins "Giving Thanks" paper leftover from last years mini album.  I do not normally work with oranges and browns but thought I'd challenge myself and pair it up with some orange and brown flowers Bunma had sent me.  I love how this came together , I think it is still "me" but in a different color scheme!  I featured a new long spray from I Am Roses - these long sprays make it so easy to arrange flowers on 12x12 layouts, just adhere and mix in some "loose" flowers around it - and voila instant flower fabulousness!

Here are some pictures of today's project:

Here are the links to the products used in this project:

Big White Gardenias

Daisies (I used tangerine)

Tangerine Paper Flowers Spray

20 Brown 2 Tone Curly Roses

Small Flowers (I used Orange)

"Beautiful Layout" Featuring I Am Roses White Paper Flowers Spray

I am over the top happy that I get to join the I Am Roses Design Team for another term!  Thank you Bunma, I cannot wait to create more projects with your over the top gorgeous flowers!  I think with every project I make I get better and am more comfortable mixing it up and making these flowers my own.

With this project I decided to color the flowers using distress ink.  For this layout I wanted an ocean color scheme and chose Tumbled Glass and Peeled Paint - they go well together and it was fun to see how each flower came out different and unique.  I also used the latest spray that I Am Roses carries - I love how this spray can stand on its own and how detailed it is - so perfect for those 12x12 layouts.

Here are some up close photos and as always links to the flowers I used for this project and some other supplies I used.  You can visit I Am Roses here:

Addicted to Crepe Paper Embellishments

I love making these because they can be customized to any project you are making - you can use different colors of crepe paper and mix and match the centers.
