Melanie's Monday Column 10-26-09

At BlueMoon Scrapbooking we are all celebrating 7 Gypsies all week long! I'm sure you all have their fun, whimsy products stashed in your scrapbooking supplies somewhere unless you are like me and use them the second you get them. Either way, we are going to get those products out this week and create with them, if you need more...I know just the place!

One of the first kits I had purchased from BlueMoon was filled with 7 Gypsies products. I created this layout in less than 1 hour. The paper is so pretty and full of texture. Do you see the black and white border paper-it's a flocked paper that's really soft-certainly not like any other plain paper, talk about texture!

I started cutting the decorative elements out of the 7 Gypsies paper (like I usually do) and in my kit I had a really cool mirror. I cut the inner part out from the paper and layered it over the mirror, pretty cool frame! Finished it off with a flower and a ring dangle....

...which is one of my favorite 7 Gypsies products. They are really pretty. You can take a look at them here ring dangles. They are available in a couple colors and styles. They are so cute you could make jewelry out of them, put them on your key chain with your car keys. Who knows the possibilities are endless. I think they are really cute hanging down the spine of a scrapbook album.

Next, I used the decorative Metal Page Edges, cut them in half, placing a piece 7 Gypsies Gaffer Tape in between them. It's so pretty!

Check out the the little heart on the crown, it was clear, I used 1 drop of alcohol ink and changed it to match my page. Pretty cool trick.

There's a ton of cool products in the store, even some 7 gypsies kits (you know I love kits!). Make sure you stop back everyday this week, the design team is out to inspire YOU!!!!

Have a create day!
