July Guest Designer Laura Williams!!

Please give a warm welcome to Laura Williams!!  Laura Williams is a paper-crafter who adores bright cheery colors, polka dots, and bold, clean design. She is a Go-to Gal at Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking magazine, and has been crafting for manufacturers and publications since 2007. You can find Laura on her blog, Lauralooloo, as well as on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.

I really wanted to create a super colorful tie-died sort of card, so I used Hero Arts Ink Daubers to dab color onto my stamped car. After it dried, I trimmed it, and adhered it with foam tape for a little added POP. 

On my Let Your Light Shine Bright card, as well as the lighthouse tag, I paired the stamps with Fancy Pants Nautical papers. I paper-pieced the lighthouses to add some fun pattern to them.  

For my One Step at a Time card, I colored and trimmed the shoes on cardstock, and then punched holes to thread twine through as tiny shoelaces. The sentiment worked so perfectly on my hill. I originally created the scene for the car to be driving on, but then I saw how perfectly the sentiment fit there, so I adjusted my plan! 

 A special thanks to Laura for sharing her mad skills with us!!
