7gypsies Inspiration

One of our new Design Team members Julie Bonner created this beautiful layout using lots of 7gypsies.
Notice the sonogram photo- it's Julie's little boy due in January!
Congratultions on your little miracle Julie!

Here's the technique Julie used on her tag.  "I took the back of one of the 7 Gypsies tags, added some quick pen to outline.  Then I painted on some Ranger Distress Crackle Paint.  I heat-set/dried this with an embossing heat gun.  Then I added some Maya Mist.  To create the splatters I took the pump out of the bottle & gently shook it at the tag - thus creating some pretty splatters :)  I let that dry, then punched 4 small hearts from one of the 7 Gypsies ephemera cards & attached them to the tag."

"This small journaling tag is tucked away in the small Melissa Frances paper bag.  It is a quote that I found the week we discovered we were pregnant & I didn't want to forget it - so I typed out the words on some 7 Gypsies Conservatory paper & glued it down on the tag. "

Papers:  7 Gypsies Conservatory
Stickers:  7 Gypsies Scrapbooking Mini Label Stickers - Travel
Alphabet:  7 Gypsies Conservatory 
Paint/Ink - Ranger/Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint in Vintage Photo, Maya Mist in Brown 

Look what Susan Coish has made with her 7gyspies Receipt Holder!!!
Susan said, "I have to say that honestly when I received this in the mail I initially wondered what I would do with it. But, once I started decorating it, I had a lot of fun. It turned out sooo much better than I expected and I now have it posted on my wall in my porch area."

It turned out beautiful! I love all those Jenni Bowlin butterflies.

Products Susan used are:
