Color Me Happy by Guest Designer Andrea Ancich

Hi there Craft Warehouse blog readers, Andrea Ancich here. I have the wonderful privilege of being a guest designer this month. It was so fun to serve and create last year during my term on the design team.  What I love about Craft Warehouse is the fun new products they get in. I get to bring you some fun projects using the NEW Color Me Happy line from Glitz Design. I first saw this line at CHA this winter when i went. I was instantly drawn to the fun colors, washi tape and embellishments. 

This card was super quick and easy to make.I used a card taht was 8.5x5.5 folded in half. Attached some patterned paper at the bottom. I cut one of the die-cut cards down to fit at the top of the card. I then used the wood washi tape to cover the seam. I pop dotted the hello and added the simple arrows. Viola! a cute easy card!

I had fun with this last layout. It is an 11 x 8.5. Next time you're stuck, try a different size layout to get the mojo flowin'!

I altered a little $1 clipboard.... 

I started out with all of these goodies...

I made some marks with my pencil on where I needed to cut so the paper would fit around the top of the clipboard.

After cutting the paper, I used a liquid adhesive and adhered it to the clipboard.

 I then covered the back of the clipboard.

I used some clear adhesive to attached this hello piece. I also used an adhesive eraser to get rid of the extra glue that was hanging out.

Then I added some washi tape. To get the effect that I want with my washi, I usually double or triple up the layers to get a bolder more concentrated colors.

I added some more embellishments....

And this is the finished project.....

Thanks for looking!
