Creative Imaginations Cowgirl!

Welcome to Day 2 of May Arts / Creative Imaginations Blog Week!

Creative Imaginations Cowgirl!

Did I get lucky or what? For our fun swap with Creative Imaginations, I got to work with the Samantha Walker ‘Cowgirl’ line! As soon as I saw the products I knew how I’d be using them- I just happen to have a mighty cute little cowgirl!



For my first page I used this SUPER fun “rodeo girl’ paper as my background.



The ‘wanted’ is a rub-on and I sewed a frame with May Arts burlap string.



The date tab is a fun sticker! I added some layered May Arts ribbon at the top (5/8” brown satin pleats, pink trimming loops, and a little velvet/crochet).

Next page puts to work some ‘cowhide’ paper- and it’s fuzzy! Fabulous, right? The pattern paper is ‘cowgirl borders’- love how it looks like I layered all those papers together!



I made a floppy bow with some pink solid/wrinkled ribbon, and topped it with a sticker.



I’ve used another one of those fun tab stickers



I created a rope effect with the burlap string strategically glued down (fabri-tac by beacon worked great for this!)



I layered some pink faux suede/leaves under that border paper- and can you see the texture of the paper too?



My final page uses the ‘b’ side of ‘brown paisley’- and truth be told, I loved both sides of all the papers!



I’ve put lots of fun goodies to work! More of the ‘cowgirl borders’, with some 1.5” pink/brown chenille dots layered on top. The ‘yeehaw’ & date tab are both stickers.



I used the tiny bit of paper that is in the id strip (the part you cut off), layered them & put some pink velvet/crochet on top with a little machine stitching.



Look at that chipboard layered sticker! It was calling out for some 3/8” double faced satin! Can you see the dimension? And the cowgirl on the bronco has that awesome flocking too!

I’ve got one more CI project to share



This card uses CI real wood ‘paper’- that I die cut & stamped on. It’s on wood grain debossed cardstock, and some May Arts brown burlap string ties on a vintage wood button.

Thank you Creative Imaginations! This was such a fun swap, full of my favorite things- pink, brown, bling & texture! And a manly card to balance it all out! J

Hope you’ve been inspired to layer up some ribbon on your scrapbook pages!!

    Oh.oh.oh–I’m copying this layout–I’m 68 and have pictures of me as a little girl on a pony and some of my daughter on her pony at about the same age–wouldn’t this be a perfect double page layout. Yes, yes, yes!
