Hello Crate Paper lovers! Melissa Phillips here with you today sharing a 'Crate Colour' project. I love letting color inspire me, it's one of my most favorite starting points. The new Notes & Things collection is packed with lovely colors, from soft and subtle, to juicy and vibrant. My projects were inspired by the colors found in the photo above.
I began with some 12x12 Notes & Things double-sided patterned paper and my favorite pocket die, with the idea of creating a few pocket notes with tags. I love that the paper is double-sided so that you catch a glimpse of the fun patterns and colors on the inside of the pocket as well as the outside.
I wanted to create some scrappy dimensional bows to embellish my pockets so I pulled out my Styleboard dies and created a few to add some character and personality. I dressed up the center of each using things like trim and sequins, a staple, button, etc.
I used vellum behind each chipboard frame in order to soften things up a bit, and also because vellum is such a beautiful and versatile element.
I used Notes & Things Cardstock Stickers Kraft Label Stickers to embellish my pockets and tags as well as Styleboard Gold Label Maker Stickers. Little touches of gold add so much charm.
A few Love Notes Badges were also used along with one of my favorite finishing touches, the dots from the Wisecrack Gold Glitter Thickers...so much fun.
The Standouts Layered Stickers are so sweet. Most definitely one of my most favorite Notes & Things products.
Another favorite Notes & Things product are the Kraft Label Stickers. I love the sweet and simple messages they carry.
