Don't forget to leave a comment on the blog for a chance to win some wonderful Maya Road and LYB goodies! We'll be picking a winner at the end of our Blog Swap Week. And while you're hopping, be sure to hop over to Liz's blog, and check that out too [maybe tell her we sent you ;) ]!
You're going to love how Liz combined Maya Road's albums and embellishments with the whimsical Twig collection to make some must-have cards and an album cover too!
So let's take a peek! Here's Liz...
After looking through the gorgeous loot that Maya Road sent to the team, I thought it would be fun to play with some TWIG. I like to keep the design of my cards simple with the focus on the sentiment and major embellishment. This card is a simple 6 x 6 inch base with two of the Twig patterned papers (Leaf A Note/Topsy Turvey and Woods/Pleased Plaid) along with some of the Paper Lace Stickers, Fabric Favorites and Fresh Verse Stickers. The sentiment steals the show, but I added the fabric leaves and the Maya Road Candy Stripe Blossoms to frame it for a dramatic effect.
I just adore the Twig Bird Song paper and thought it would be a fun element to add to another simple card. You can see all of the lovely and decadent design in the paper along with the beautiful birds. To complete the look I added a Twig Canvas Sticker Border, Chipboard Stickers w/ Glitter, Epoxy Stickers and the Maya Road Felt Pearl Blossoms. Super easy to make and such a lovely card to send to a special friend.
Maya Road also sent us this adorable Tea Pot Chipboard Album. Instead of making the mini album, I decided to incorporate it into this larger Maya Road 8 x 8 album. I thought the Twig Bird Song paper looked like porcelain and was perfect for the tea pot.
The Chipboard Tea Pot was a nice way to add some dimension and character to the project, plus it looks gorgeous in Twig.
All of the element layer so well together, it was almost as if these Maya Road blossoms were made especially for the Twig collection.
Thanks Liz! I think I'm going to make some of these cards TONIGHT!!! But wait! There's a BONUS!
Liz also made this adorable card, using elements from LYB's Tiny Princess collection - accented by a Maya Road gingham flower! So cute!
See you tomorrow with more goodies!
