Go-to Gal Designer Challenge: Hazel & Ruby

This is my 2nd post of the day!  
For my Lil' Inker Designs July Release Blog Hop - click HERE or scroll down!

*******

It's the last Wednesday of the month and you know what that means...
Go-to Gal Designer Challenge time!  

This month, it's all about Hazel & Ruby!

Hazel & Ruby has some amazing crafting products - perfect for every project you could possibly think of!  

I especially love their papers!  They're 18" tall by really really long (144") wide.  You can use them for gift wrap and projects.  I actually just used the last of my first tube. :)
Rainbow hearts - need I say more? 
Newsprint floral.  Yes please!

So, I have two projects for you today that use Hazel & Ruby products. The first, I'm pretty excited about.  I know I've shared sneaks and tidbits on Instagram and Facebook - but I just had built in craft room added to our house.  YAY!  

With that means all of my existing craft furniture had to hit the road.  However, just a few months before I purchased a pair of white bookshelves.  I decided to move one of them into my daughter's room... but I thought it would be fun to give it a little Hazel & Ruby overhaul!
Plain white.  Basic and in great shape.  However, I wanted to give them a little pop.  

So, I trimmed 2 different papers from the Hazel & Ruby Paperie collection and lined the inside of my bookshelf.  WAY MORE FUN!
Forgive the sub-par styling here - it's rather late and I am not risking waking that girl up for props.  :)  I love how it gives this plain bookshelf a little added pop of color while not committing to the level of paint.  

How fun would it be to do this same project but on a completely up crafting furniture piece?  I so want to paint that bookshelf... 

One more project for you... 
and this was actually my first project but I had the paper out and got sidetracked with the bookshelf project!  I had my husband cut down a piece of plywood and I covered it with that Newsprint Floral paper.  Then I matted a frame with burlap and adhered it to the front.  I love how this turned out.  Handmade and perfect for the craft room!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to check out what the other Go-to Gals came up with - you know it's going to be fabulous!

Lil' Inker Designs - July Release Day 3

Sniffle, sniffle!  It's the last day for the Lil' Inker Designs release hop but I know the next release is great and just around the corner. :)
I love these flowers in the Sketched Floral stamp set and the Sketched Floral die with the stitching around the negative - LOVE!  Such a special and unique touch. 


 
Now for my last project of this release...
I love layering papers with vellum and thought the new Dance in the Rain sentiments would look so cool on the Pinked Edge Sentiment Flag dies.  Then, I complimented it with the fun new Cut It Out Clouds die set.

Lil' Inker Designs - July Release Blog Hop

Hello and welcome back for Lil' Inker Designs July release!  
Watercolors again.  I just can't stop.  I used my favorite watercolors and watercolor paper to create a very soft background.  Then, I watercolored some more in complimentary shades to my inks on some scraps, which just stamped the feathers from the new Fancy Feathers right on and die cut them out.  I love how the watercolor gives each of the feathers the most subtle coloring.  

I was feeling extra artsy and I just ran the edges of my card along my ink pad to get some extra color. :)   And the sequins.... ahhh, I just can't stop!
