Customer Creations #5

Ilene Brookler sent me a couple layouts she created with her new favorites since coming to the store...Thickers and anything by My Mind's Eye. She loves layering a bunch of different patterns and the results are really fun!!!

This one features paper & embellishments from MME's Breaking Free.

This one features paper & embellishments from MME's Just Dreamy 2.

These 3 feature paper & embellishments from MME's 29th Street Market which is currently on clearance at 50% off! Can't beat that!

Great combinations Ilene!!!
That's it folks, I'm out of Customer Creations for now. Have something you want to share? Email me your photos. The only rule is that they need to feature goodies from the shop. I'll post them in my next series of Customer Creation posts!

Customer Creations #4

Melet Horne stops by the shop almost every week and is begging me to open an online shop so she can continue shopping when she and her family move out of the area in a couple months. She says she hasn't been happy with the quality of things she finds on other online stores, but knows my things will worth it!
Here are some of her creations.

These two layouts feature paper from MME Breaking Free Collection.

I love what she did with the Glitz products!

Here she combines Chic Bebe from GCD Studios with Bungle Jungle from Sassafras Lass...very nice!

and last but not least here's a great one featuring Sassafras Lass...see you can scrapbook with busy paper!
Great job Melet! And we'll see about that online store!

Customer Creations #3

Irene Segal created this adorable acrylic onesie album for a baby shower! She had a lot of fun playing with the clear layers and adding in pages she traced from the onesie shape!

This is some of the baby boy paper from Karen Foster.

These pages feature paper from American Crafts & GCD Studios Chic Bebe and glitter letters from My Mind's Eye.

Irene edged lots of pages with ric rac and other fun trims!

Here she used a lace cardstock on the sheer page for a nice effect!

More paper from Chic Bebe...

Brighter hues from Best Creations Kit collection...

More sheer effects with the Onsie transparency sheet from Hambly studios...

Karen Foster paper again...

MME Penny Lane & American Crafts....

Great job Irene!!!

Customer Creations #2

Lime Rickey from Basic Grey has been one of the most popular collections I've had at the shop yet. Check out these great projects from 2 of our customers!

Karen Hilaire combined Lime Rickey with the Layer by Layer chipboard book by Karen Foster. Here are some snap shots!

Karen also incorporated the Kite Paper from Best Creations...a great match to Lime Rickey!

Super fabulous Karen!!!

Judie Garnett also featured Lime Rickey in her layouts featuring her energetic boys! I love the layering and the movement created by the stamps and circles. Doesn't it just capture the energy?!? Also, if I'm not mistaken, there are some paper whimsies from Sassafras Lass in this layout...another great combo. And the circles are accented with brads which is just perfect!
Great Job Judie!!!

Father's Day Projects

I have plenty of friends who are fathers and say that they always get the short end of the stick on Father's Day. Well, not so at Sonja's. I've got lots in store to show your love and appreciation to a wonderful dad in your life.

This card features the Father's Day Collage & Ties, Ties, Ties paper from Karen Foster and stickers from SRM Press, plus cardstock and a cardstock tag from Bazzill and ribbon American Crafts.

Another idea...the quad fold mini album featuring paper and embellisments from MME Penny Lane, as well as stickers from SRM Press and ribbon from American Crafts.

Looking for more about a shadow box collage featuring a tribute to your dad or an assortment of photos from the family. Or try a Kaisercraft project like a desk clock or photo cube.

But hurry, Father's Day is June 21st and I'm already selling out of some of these great things!
