Sweet Teddy cards by DT Lynn Good

***Sweet Teddy cards by DT member Lynn Good***

I love the Pion Design papers and thought I would create some cards using the Chloe Pearl Flourish, Adhesive Pearls in pearl and FWAB flowers. It is amazing how far these products go when you use them in pieces for smaller things such as cards.  I have kept the cards simple – without mixed media – as I felt the paper and FWAB products were the focus.
I have used FWAB Chloe PearlFWAB Adhesive Pearls in pearl and FWAB flowers as well as  Pion Design Paper, Distress Ink – Frayed Burlap and Bundled Sage.  We R Memory Keepers Embossing Folder – Geometric, Prima Metal Die – confetti Hearts, Spellbinders Die Cut – Decorative Curved Square, Bo Bunny Die Cut – 3×4 Ornate Frame.
In the above and below cards I have used the FWAB Chloe pearl flourish and cut it up into pieces to suit my card
In the card below I have used a FWAB white Elise flower
In the card below of this cute teddy and his friends I have used a FWAB pink Maddison flower
In the card below I have used the FWAB Adhesive Pearls
Another card below where I have used the FWAB Chloe Pearl flourish and cut it up to suit my card, as well as a FWAB white Elise flower.

A New Layout by Lynn plus only 1 more follower needed!

Hi everyone, here's a message and gorgeous layout by our DT member Lynn Good:

I love it when we get snow at home, the air seems clear and everything takes on a winter wonderland look – no longer are the weeds visible or the lawns need mowing – it is all blended together by snow.
I have used 7 dots – Writers Block Collection for the paper and tags.
For the background I have used Texture Crackle Paste and Shimmerz Tickle Me Turquoise.
One of my favourite FWAB products is the Jack Vine in Black. I have cut this into two as well as removing a couple of leaves to lay above the FWAB flowers.
As a final touch I have splattered gesso and shimmerz paint together with FWAB Rhinestones in Teal and Black.

Hi there FWAB fans!
We would love to introduce you to our 2nd Design Team member for 2017, Rachelle Olaridge from the USA. A very big FWAB welcome to you Rachelle, we are really excited to have you come on board!
~~~Just Me!~~~
I am a mother of 2 grown sons and grandmother to 2 beautiful grandchildren. I taught 6th grade for 7 years.
I started scrapbooking in 2008 when I viewed a friends work. My passion quickly turned into addiction for this type of artistry and I never looked back.  I am very passionate about this skills. It’s not just about creating albums but it is a work of art. I love taking pictures to use to document life. Thus, here I am today enjoying each day filled with being inspired, creating, providing inspiration through my work and treasuring the memories.

I am so addicted to the art of scrapbooking and paper crafting.  My skills  have expanded since 2009 for creating cards, layouts, tags, altered art work, planners, mixed media, wood, chipboard, and canvas artwork. I love using a variety of techniques, elegant and shabby chic elements. My style has been described as detailed, beautiful, and multifaceted. My greatest strength is attention to detail. I easily adapt my style depending on the type of project.  You will see a mixture of styles while looking through my gallery. I like to take the viewer on a visual journey of my designs.

Introducing our first DT member for 2017 - Lynn Good

We would like to welcome our new DT member, Lynn Good:

New T member Lynn Good

ok – a little bit about me:
I live in Tasmania on a small acreage with my husband, two dogs, two cats and an array of wildlife.
My two boys have flown the coup to begin their adventures but are still a big inspiration for my scrapbooking.
I have been scrapbooking for around 14 years and although I don’t have a “style” I would say that bling, flowers, chipboard and all things messy are in everything I do.
I predominately do 12×12 layouts but also love tags, canvases and off the page projects. For me I love the friendships I have created from all around the world and I love to create, share and inspire as others do with me.
We asked Lynn what her favourite FWAB products were – With regard to favourite product – oh how do you choose!!!!
Favourite products would be – Adhesive Pearls and Rhinestones (great value for money!), puffy flourishes, vines and flowers.
Now for Lynn’s very first DT layout for FWAB  – March 2017-
Hi there, I am super thrilled to reveal my first layout for the FWAB design team for 2017.  Super excited to be a part of this team.
I started with 7 Dots studio – writers block collection “sincerely” paper which I covered with clear gesso. I have created the background using 3D Gloss Gel and a Prima square stencil, a 13 arts leaf stencil and white crackle paste and random patches of clear crackle paste.  Once dried I have used Lindy Stamp Gang Magicals and Starbursts to create a “foilage” theme behind the photo.  Random stamping with a checkerboard stamp from Tim Holtz, Ultimate Grunge collection.
  I have then used FWAB Jack vine Green and Jack vine Olive Green behind the photo which has been raised and encircled with Prima wire painted with Golden paint. A couple of FWAB flowers and title completes the composition.
I have brought the layout together with splashes of white gesso and scattered FWAB rhinestones in black.
A very big welcome to you Lynn from all of us here at FWAB, we are really excited to have you come on board as one of our new DT members for 2017 and look forward to seeing hat you have in store for us during the coming months..
If you would like to check out some of Lynn’s work pre FWAB DT, then you can find her blog HERE. Enjoy all the fabulous eye candy! I am….love love love Lynn’s work!
