SPECIAL GUEST - Janna Werner - A last share

Sadly, I am here with our last designer share from our guest Janna. Today Janna thought 'outside the box' (LITERALLY) and has embellished and created a box to share with you all. 

She has used our 'Everyday Barcode' flair on this paper project (These Flair coordinate perfectly with the Midnight 'Becky Higgins' Core Kit, incase you were unaware) - 

I love, love, love the colour combo of this! Janna has created the origami box from a tutorial she found on the internet. 

She also created the flower too, what a clever cookie she is! Janna again found a tutorial on the net and wanted to give it a go right away!

Here is a progress pic of her creating the flower (awesome hey):

Sadly this is Janna's last share with us, however, there is some light at the end of the tunnel! Janna is hosting an APOCD Giveaway on her blog - stay tuned to our blog and I will share more details VERY SOON! :)

SPECIAL GUEST - Janna Werner - A Card

Today I am here to share a card that Janna has created with our Cherry Flair. For this card Janna used the 'Sweet Love' pack which was actually one of our first Cherry Flair releases. All past releases at APOCD are available to purchase and followers will be pleased to know, we have not yet 'retired' any designs :)

Here is Janna's card:

The softness of the card is just gorgeous with the petals, die cut circle and scallop and doily. 

Janna had adhered the Cherry Flair with a dimensional foam tape, making the flair really 'pop' off the card. I love how Janna has subtly incorporated the red/pink tones of the flair into the falling petals by adding a touch of colour to their tips. This really ties the whole card together. 

Hope this has inspired you to dig into the Cherry Flair stash (or alternatively stock up here www.apieceofcakedesigns.com.au) and use some of your scrapping materials to make some cards :)

Stay tuned to our blog for some more shares from our designers and sneaks of our August Kits and Cherry Flair designs....

Guest Designer Share - Kim Price - Sail Away

Hello again. Today I am back to share with you my fourth layout using the August kit from A Piece Of Cake Designs.

This time I have chosen to use the aqua shades from the kit which work beautifully with my sailboat photograph. I created my background using gesso on chipboard and added a big splash of colour to coordinate with the kit colours. 

I’ve chosen a tall centred design adding lots of layers and utilizing the textures in the patterned papers. A few tiny star stickers, a title, wooden arrow, some twine and a tiny paper flower really set the whole layout off and lastly a gorgeous flair from A Piece Of Cake Designs. Thanks for calling in again today!

Today I am back with another share from our guest Janna :)

This time with a share of another paper project - an envelope!

Janna has again used the Blushing Doileys Cherry Flair pack available in the APOCD store.

Here is Janna's embellished envelope:

Such a stunning colour combo, the Cherry Flair compliments these colours perfectly.

Janna has adhered the Cherry Flair on top of the twine bow and a gathering of thread.

SPECIAL GUEST - Janna Werner - Project Life Share

Today Janna is sharing with us a Pocket Page / Project Life Style Page. On this layout Janna has teamed the gorgeous Crate Paper 'The Pier' Collection with the 'Kraft 2013' and 'Days of the Week' Cherry Flairs. 

Here is Janna's overall page:

The Cherry Flair she has selected work with the 'Pier' collection so beautifully!

And some close ups:

Our 'Days of the Week' Cherry Flair are very popular with Project Life Lovers!

DID YOU KNOW? Our flair are a perfect embellishment in PL pages as they are approx. 2mm thick, compared to the 'usual' 4mm and have a flat back- this means they sit perfectly under a Project Life pocket page.

Here is an image of what the front and back of our flair looks like:

A close up of our very popular 'Kraft 2013' packs of Cherry Flair, this particular flair in the back is one of my personal favourites.

Thank you so much for sharing a Project Life Style Spread with us Janna. Janna is currently designing for Crate Paper so you can see more of her work on their blog too:

I will be back soon with more kit and Cherry Flair sneaks and a last share from Janna :)

SPECIAL GUEST - Janna Werner - Layout Share

I am here to share today Janna's first layout using our APOCD Flair. Janna is a 'tea lover' so when she saw the 'I {heart} Tea' Cherry Flair she knew she had to create a layout with them.

For this layout Janna has used the 'Blushing Doileys' and 'I {heart} Tea' Cherry Flair which are available in our store :)

Here is what she came up with:

I love the style of Janna's layouts, each embellishments seems to be in the perfect place. The pops of metallic in the charms and glitter are surely after my heart too!

Here are some close ups:

Love this Tea Bag style tag, perfect accompaniment for this photo and our 'I {heart} Tea' Cherry Flair.

 The 'Blushing Doileys' Cherry Flair works beautifully on this soft layout, coordinating beautifully with the colour of the tea, the heart resin and the red in the 'I {heart} Tea' Cherry Flair.

WOW! Stunning!! Thank you so much for being a guest at APOCD Janna! I am sure I speak for all APOCD followers in saying that we are looking forward to seeing more 'Cherry Flair' shares from you :)
