Happy Sunday Urban Swank Fans.

I am lucky to have been chosen as a swanky girl. My layout features my darling daughter and her many faces. I took all the pictures within 5 minutes. When I saw the pictures, I was amazed by how many different looks she had given me. I than had fun and labeled all the pics. I used the Happy Everything Collection Beautiful and celebrate papers. This layout was simple I just cut out the design from the Beautiful paper mounted it on the pink bazzil heart paper and layered on black bling. I added some stickles to the edges. The font is from American Crafts.
Thank you for looking

The Dark Side

I have pretty much been blond all my life, so when I went dark, I had to document it!

Urban Lily Supplies:
Alphabet Paper
Sugarhigh Paper
Polka Dot Memory Photocards
ATC Cards

I cut the letters from the Alphabet paper and matted with the leftover portion from the Sugarhigh paper used to make the Popsicle flower.

I added a bit of Glimmer Mist and used some Urban Lily ATC Cards.

I used Helmar's Textured Effects on the alphas to add texture.

And I even made a little embellishment from the Textured Effects! Click here to view instructions on how to make your own.

Scrap On!

Here it is !

Hello scrappers ! My name is Aida and I was completely *WOWED !!!* at seeing the Urban Lily products in real life. When I fist started scrapping, the clean fresh looks of Urban Lily was a huge attraction and dreams of being on the team were just that : dreams. Fast forward to today, it is such a thrill to be designing projects for Urban Swank and I hope the two layouts below will give you ideas on how to start using the products !

This layout uses the title Good Fun and it's a group of teen dancers who are friends.

Urban Lily products are :
Mooch - Sugarhigh
Urban Cut - Mini Book Bright
Happy Everything - Forever

Others : WRMK Grommets

We loved the movie The Incredibles ! It's really does say how we often knuckle down to society's expectations even while we downplay gifts or talents that are not mainstream. The Mrs Incredible figurine from McDonalds hangs on my Mac and reminds me to be resolute, to believe in my family and myself no matter what.

Urban Lily products :
Chipboard circles - Answer it
Mooch - Sugarhigh
May Ella - Impish
Others :
Bazill cardstock
American Crafts Felt Thickers
Stamp - Stampers Anonymous

Now, isn't it time YOU got into Urban Lily ? Thanks for dropping by !
