Yankee Doodler

Welp... WE'RE BACK!!!  Danielle a.k.a. FitterTwit here to march you through our AWESOME designs after a two week break for our design team.  I think that you will EASILY be able to see that the little break was WELL WORTH it based on the SO-VERY-GREAT projects they turned out. 

With Memorial Day and Fourth of July right around the corner, the design team was challenged to create masterpieces featuring the new Americana products available now at Paper Vineyard.  We'll kick things off with the wonderful Pam!

Pam has created this COLORFUL patriotic card using a BUNCH of fun goodies including Stickles, Memento ink in Paris Dusk, Copic Marker in R46, the Marvy Scalloped Oval, Bazzill cardstock and (of course) We R Memory Keepers Yankee Doodles Tag, glitter brads, eyelets, layering chipboard, Sew Easy floss with piercing mat, brad setter tool, Crop-a-dile AND the corner chomper.  Whew!  Pam, you nailed it!!! 

The AMAZING Gayl turned out this incredibly inventive 4th of July Triptych.  A Triptych is defined as a work of art that is divided into three sections, or three carved panels which are hinged together and folded (I looked it up, as did the rest of the design team!  hahahahahahahahaha!).  Great job not only with this creation Gayl, but also with expanding our vocabulary!!!

She created this masterpiece using Creative Imaginations key tags, WeRMemoryKeepers Yankee Doodle paper and soft plastic charms, Bazzill bling, Jolee Wooden pieces, Fabric tape and vintage digital images.
It's just INCREDIBLE.... here's a close up of one of the "panels".

Let's check out the magic that Marijo brought us.  And when I say "magic", I mean it!!!  These magical blocks are currently on display at Paper Vineyard, so you'll want to RUN not walk to check it out!!!  Why are these blocks so magical?  Well, when they are arranged, they spell out 6 DIFFERENT patriotic words:  America, Freedom, Veterans, Heros, Patriot and Courage.

Marijo created this wonder-project using 3" x 3" wood blocks, We R Memory Keepers Yankee Doodles paper, Bazzill paper, Xyron adhesive, Creative Memories star punch, and sealed with Mod Podge.  These blocks REALLY take "patriotic" to a new level.

 Well that does it for this week's designs.  Our designers really ARE dandy Yankee Doodlers... LOL!   I hope that we were able to inspire your upcoming patriotic holiday projects.  Also, be sure to swing by the store to check out the Americana scrapbook page kits that we have available.  Paper Vineyard is here to help you cultivate those patriotic creations.
