WELCOME August Guest Designer :: Tracy Scales


We are thrilled come to you today to introduce our Guest Designer for August!
Please join us in welcoming Tracy Scales to our Peachy Keen Family of Designers!
Tracy will be sharing projects with you today and each Tuesday through the rest of this month and we are so happy to have her here.
Read a little about Tracy in her own words below, then scroll down to see the wonderful project she has prepared to share.

I'm Tracy and a self confessed craftaholic.  I have always been creative and had an obsession with paper and creating things.  I love my stamps and anything inky.  I mainly make cards, but I am also in to altered items and scrapbooking.  I have a wonderful hubby who supports my addiction and I am thrilled to be guest designing for Peachy Keen Stamps as I adore their stamps!

Hi Everyone, It is Tracy from Welcome to my crafty world. I cannot explain how excited I am to be this months guest Designer for Peachy Keen Stamps !
I have always been a huge fan of Peachy Keen Stamps, so to be able to showcase my creations with you all is really exciting.

My first card I  want to share with you all is made using two of Peachy Keens fab stamp sets.
I really had SO much fun making this card.....

For this card I used the following stamps....

I got my cameo out for this card and decided I wanted to do a scene card. The grass & fence are all cut out with my cameo. 
I colored the super cute Natalee with my copics. I thought the sunshine and sentiment went perfectly with Natalee. I also added the little bows to her hair (I know as a little girl I always had bows in my hair...they tended not to stay in my hair for very long though). 
I cut the sun in two layers and then using foam tape mounted the top layer to the bottom to give some dimension, I then just built up my scene. The papers are from the Silhouette Store, it was then mounted onto a scalloped edge card. 
I really hope you liked my first project, and I hope you will come back to check out the rest of my creations throughout the month. 
Thanks for stopping by.
