March Guest Creator Recap |  Tina Keyner
Our guest creator for the month was Tina Keyner, and we have 5 different projects to share with you! Tina created a card, 2 separate layouts, a tag book and traveler's notebook layout with our Cactus Moon collection. Take a look at each one below.
Making greeting cards are so effortless when you use a pocket page card!  Those cards are so versatile!  You can use them in your pocket page scrapbooking or like I did on this greeting card.  Apply the card of choice to the front of your greeting card, layer in some elements in back of the card as well as on top of the card. For the inside of the greeting card I used another pocket page card and layered a sticker sentiment from the memory keeping kit. Once again my rule of thumb is to add a layer in the back of the card as well as on top of the card.  The label sticker was a much needed pop of color for the back layer.  For the top layer I added the arrow ephemera to the top corner and the epoxy dots to the bottom of the greeting card.  Done!
Layout 1:
I fell in love with the succulent floral print paper. It's just gorgeous!  I knew it might be a little busy for the picture I wanted to use.  When I printed the picture I added a thick white border to the photo so the picture would be framed.  I loved the tags included in this month's kit!  I had to add it to the top of the layout as a background layer to the picture. I also used several small tags/labels from the kit to add as a background layer as well.  For those labels I stamped a pattern from the stamp set that is included in the kit.  I used the VersaMark watermark ink because I did not want to draw attention to that section of the layout, I wanted to add depth.  The VersaMark watermark ink stamps your design one shade darker than the color paper you are stamping on, so it comes out subtle. The puffy alpha stickers were perfect!  It was just the dimension I was looking for.  Finished it off with some epoxy dots for color and this layout is complete!
Layout 2:
This paper made me so happy!  I knew the perfect picture for it! This is the layout that made me become obsessed with the acetate triangles! The black puffy sticker word definitely popped off the page in the best way!  Loved all the dimensions the chipboard elements added to this layout.
Tag Book: 
 Instantly knew what I wanted to create when I laid my eyes on these three oversized tags!  They quickly became a favorite because I love using photo strip style pictures. A mini book was my first thought.. but you can arrange these on a 12 x12 layout or even one by one in a traveler's notebook and they would look absolutely gorgeous!  I am most definitely using this design size again for some traveler's notebook pages in the future. I stamped on the tag designs, used stickers, chipboard elements, acetate, and more! I cannot get enough of this tag design size!
Traveler's Notebook Layout: 
I live in the best part of Southern California.. 45 minutes in any direction will put me at the beach, in the desert, by a lake in the mountains, or in the center of Los Angeles. This month's  traveler's notebook design will help me document any location.  The designs are perfect for all four landscapes.  I used a combination of chipboard elements, stickers, and the epoxy dots for this layout.
