Inspiration | This Happened

Hi there!

Laura here and I am sad to say that my term on the Evalicious DT is over, I had so much fun designing with Eve's fabulous products, it was truly a blessing to be on the team!

But, before I go, I have one last project to share.

This photo was taken a week after we got our new car, while driving down the highway we were hit by a flying wheel that came off of another car going the opposite direction.  Thankfully, everyone in both vehicles was fine. 

The story needed to be documented.

Here are a few close up shots....

I stamped this little journaling tag and layered it with patterned paper, a puffy sticker and clip from Evalicious and some MME enamel dots.

This sweet camera was stamped in Stazon onto acrylic (recycled packaging).

Tab, badge buttons, large tags, puffy sticker and the car stamped onto vellum are all from Evalicious.

Small arrow tab and geo tag puffy sticker are Evalicious.

On a funny note, the masking detail with the black ink reminds me a little of the tread marks that were all over our car.  Ha!

Badge Buttons - Just Us V2Everyday V1, Everyday V2
Puffy Stickers - Hello 2014 Miscellany V1, Hello 2014 Miscellany V2, Talk to Me,  Itinerary v1

SneakerGirl | Inspiration

Hey Y'all! Mandy here again today with another new project to share.
I had a basic simple design in mind when I started creating this layout. I wanted to stick with just a few colors and I made a I searched through my Evalicious products I pulled all those colors that fell into the the scheme. I'm pretty happy with how it all turned out.  

Here's a tip I figures out when I was creating I had this label "Currently Life Right Now" and it didn't fit my layout so I covered the "ly Life Right" part with the "Story" Badge. 

I used the puffy stickers, labels, and paperclips as part of my long large journaling. The mix keeps your eye moving throughout the layout.

Hello Summer | Inspiration

Hey everyone! Mandy here to share a new project with you today. 

One thing I really love about Evalicious products is no matter how old or new the paper you're creating with is the product still works, it's like that little black dress. On this layout I used old Sassafras Lass pattern paper with the following Evalicious products Hello 2014 badge buttons v2, just us badge buttons v2, just us misc. puffy stickers v1, and real life snipsnip labels.

The layout looks like it has a lot of layers and dimension but it doesn't, it's the Sassafras Lass paper. One of my favorite ways to add layers to a layout is by put snipsnip labels under photos. 

I added the badges at the top of the layout and the bottom of the layout after I distress and folded the edge of the pattern paper over a bit. love the way it looks and it was a great touch to finish off my layout. 

Thanks for joining me today!

Hello lovelies! This is Sam to share another layout with you using a lot of Shop Evalicious stamps again. There is no secret that I love all the Evalicious stamps and always try to incorporate as many stamp as possible into my layouts. 

Before I started making my layouts, I decided to make some sequin pockets using some of the Evalicious stamp sets. To view my full tutorial on how to make sequin pockets, click here. They are so easy make that you can make a bunch of this under an hour or so.

And here's a happy layout that I have used a lot of stamps:

I heat embossed the stamp image using my heat gun and white embossing powder on a piece of white card stock. Then I wet the card stock and added Peerless Watercolor to create my own background. I am loving the subtle effect that the stamp imaged show through.

More close-up of the background can be seen here:

Thanks for looking!

Everyday Life | Inspiration

Hi there!

It's Laura here with a new project to share today!

There are so many great items in the Evalicious shop for foodies, and since we are a family of foodies, I knew that a food page was a must.  My youngest son is pretty much only a foodie with breakfast, the rest of the day he could take it or leave it... unlike the other members of our family.  Documenting his yearning for lovely big, warm breakfast seemed natural for his album.

I used labels from the Hello 2014 and Everyday snipsnip sets, Everyday snipsnip page tabs, Hello 2014 large tags, Just Us snipsnip large tags, puffy stickers from the Everyday Miscellany setJust US set, and Talk to Me set.
An Everyday Miscellany sticker. And badge buttons (flair) from the Just Us set and the Everyday V1 and V2 sets. Stamps from the Smile Journal Prompts set  and My Favourite stamp set. And a Round Arrow paper clip.

Here are some close up shots:

 I had so much fun layering up different elements and adding some ink and stitching to the mix.

 I put "my story" front and centre with the photo on one of these fabulous cards.

layering up page tabs and some messy stitching for texture.

I really like combining a bit of everything  for interest.

Thanks for visiting!  And don't forget to pop back by the blog to see what the rest of the team is up to!

14 & Noteworthy | Inspiration

Hello All!

Wendy here and I can't believe this is the countdown for the last two projects on the Evalicious design team!  WOW, time flies when you're having fun, right?!  I hope I've inspired you, even if a little bit, while hanging out here with Evalicious.  I can definitely say the product is VERY inspiring and makes creating a breeze.  Feels good when amazing product works your mojo in that way, ha!

Project Inspiration | I created this project based on 2014 (aka '14) inspiration from travels earlier this year and my love for a touch of mixed media to my projects.  So, I worked both worlds for love of travel + mixed media for you.

I worked several details into my project using LOTS of Evalicious goodies!  So, let's get to it!  Also, too many times I'll grab 1-2 photos for a project but I made an exception here to use 5 photos.  

I used the '&' from Just Us Miscellany V2 as part of my title '14 & Noteworthy'.  It was just the perfect pop of dimension for a twist on my title work.  I added my own touch of painting and misting on the numbers and cardstock base.

I chose to stamp directly on my photo with the Road Trip stamp set + Staz-On ink.  I used the little car sticker from Itinerary V1 Puffy Stickers and my vintage typewriter for the bit of journaling on the photo.  

What is traveling without a few eats along the way?!  I know I like to check out the local eats when traveling. Well, this banana pudding was to dieeee for right in my own state of Alabama and definitely 'good eats'.  I used the badge button from Everyday V1 along with a fun sticker from Everyday Miscellany for a bit of expression on that pic.  

Sometimes I like to take my stamping to the next level.  So, I worked the 'hello' stamp from Typewriter Love stamp set.   I made a fun twist with the geotag stamp from Love Today along with map badge from Vintage Maps to tie into my pattern paper.  Also, a sweet puffy sticker 'here' from Itinerary V1 Puffy Stickers.  I love this whimsical twist to my project!

As an ending polish to my project, I added a photo from a Feb '14 visit to my fiancĂ©'s city in Austria along and used the 'love it here' from Itinerary V2 Puffy Stickers.   

Hope I inspired you today!  
I have one final project for Evalicious coming up 6/27. <<insert sad face>>
