Maggie Holmes Jord Watch-4I’m a fan of unique watches, and wanted to share one of my new favorite women’s watches with you. I am always on the hunt for new accessories to add to my summertime wardrobe and was excited to try out this beautiful Jord Wood watch. It’s oversized, which I LOVE and in my book you can never go wrong with the black and gold combo.

The most surprising thing to me about my new watch is how lightweight and comfortable it is! Typically big oversized fashionable watches are pretty heavy on the wrist, but this one is super lightweight and smooth against the skin.

This timepiece is a part of the Frankie series by Jord, a brand that has successfully brought a simplistic and natural design to the oversized watch trend by using wood. If you are looking for a new accessory to kick up your summertime #ootd game, you can’t go wrong with the Frankie series watch, or any of the fabulous watches for women over at Jord! They have a lot of cool watches for both men and women and any of them would also make a great unique gift!

Hello there friends! I popped onto Instagram yesterday and mentioned the fact that we have been off the grid for a little bit recently. I love sharing with you all here on the blog and on my social accounts and I also love connecting with and being inspired by so many as well! It’s all truly fabulous and I love being a part of this creative online world!!!

At the same time, It’s also really nice to step away for a bit every once in a while and reconnect with those that mean the very most. We spent a lot of time not sticking to a schedule, just hanging out, having fun and chasing the littles around. It was so nice! Having said that, we are back to real life now and I have lots to share with you here on the blog so yay for that!!

First up are some beautiful cards from design team member Kim. The colors are lovely and I’m especially loving these touches of lavender lately! I always enjoy how Kim marries her watercolor paintings with the other papers and embellishments. They feel like they were meant to work together!

Quick Tip >> Kim’s using her creations to decorate cards, but I’m also thinking these would be great little art pieces to frame and hang in a powder bathroom or bedroom. They would look fabulous in vintage gold frames, don’t you think!!

Hi everyone! I’m here today to share a few fun cards made with watercolor scraps. One of my favorite things to use when making cards is watercolors, along with the fun neutral papers in the Maggie Holmes collections! The collections are very versatile and I love that there’s plenty of color along with so many calm neutral prints.

Photo Jul 04, 7 21 13 PMI picked a few of the papers to use as the background for my cards. Next I went to my watercolor scraps. I never have a shortage of watercolor scraps in my stash to use with other craft projects. I cut my 12 x 12 papers in half to make 6 x 6 cards. Then I cut small squares of my art pieces to use on the cards. I made them just about a half inch smaller on each and glued them onto my cards.

Happy Tuesday!

  • Heather Beasley - I just love this idea of using watercolor scraps and layering it on neutral paper. These are gorgeous! I would frame them if they were mine. 🙂ReplyCancel

Do you have a favorite color combo or one that you generally go to when creating new scrapbook layouts, mini albums or cards? I know that I typically find myself gravitating toward yellow, mint green or aqua and pinks! I just can’t help myself! Unless I am working with photos of our boys… and then I love the combo of blue, green and yellow. And I hardly ever use red for some reason! Funny how we are such creatures of habit with things like that! 

Today design team member Jessy takes us through her process of selecting the colors for this beautiful layout she created about her daughter. She used the tones and colors in her photos to inspire the colors of products she went with to put the page together. When you do that, you are sure to have a very cohesive and visually appealing project and nothing will end up clashing or looking out of place.

But still, don’t be afraid to grab a random pop of color that doesn’t show up in your photos at all. Jessy did that here with the yellow flower sticker and chambray blue deer embellishment. It works because both of those colors combine very well with the other colors in her photos and papers that she had already chosen. And it also really brings the page to life by contrasting with all the other neutrals! When you are ready to add that random pop of color, I always pick different things and try them out before permanently attaching them to the page. Usually you will know instantly if it works and flows well or if it seems out of place. Don’t be afraid to try a few things until you find just the right one that does the job and brings it all together! Read on for more details from Jessy!

My photos always inspire me & often I have a title in my mind as well. I love the brown & black hue in these photos and decided to select all the papers and embellishments from the Bloom collection to go along with those colors. As I was going through the products, I was drawn to the gold, black and white. What a classic color combination! These colors certainly made the photos stand out & overall gives you a cohesive look too.

HelloBeautiful_1To begin, I used the marble-like background paper as my base + layered the gold rose vellum at the bottom. Next, I placed the photos in the middle and slowly added black and white design patterned paper to give interest to the photos. I slowly worked my way by across by adding more embellishments like paper doilies, chipboard stickers, sentiments & ephemera as well. Once I’m happy with the composition, I’ll snap a photo for reference, just in case I forget of the placement while gluing the elements down. By snapping a photo from the bird’s eye view, it gives you a different perspective to your layout too. That way, you can make the necessary adjustments to your layout if you see anything you want to change.

HelloBeautiful_2 HelloBeautiful_3Thank you for coming by! Have a great week! xoxoxo Jessy

Happy Wednesday Friends!
