For the love of COLOR! 0
Hi there! Laurie Schmidlin here with a couple of fun and bright cards to share with you!
I absolutely love color! That is one of my favorite things about Queen & Co...all the beautiful colors!
I created a shaker card using the Balloons Shaker Kit and Balloons Card Front Die. My favorite part about creating shaker cards is adding the toppings! I added three different kinds to the balloons: Pops, Fimo Fun, & Tiny Bubbles.
My next card is a clean and simple card with pops of bright, cheerful colors. I started by die cutting the film strip (from the Say Cheese Shaped Shaker set). I then added some Red and Yellow Wallflowers and a couple of Yellow Sparklers. I grounded the die cut sentiment by adding a strip of striped patterned paper (from the Stripes Paper Pad).
Thanks so much for joining me here today!
Pool Party Layout! 0
Hello, it's Mary Ann Jenkins here with a new layout to share!
I know we're in the middle of summer (at least here in the states) but I'm still trying to catch up on some of my kids' school activity photos. This layout does have a summer feel to it since it's about a day at the pool, but it's really for my daughters school album, and I'm happy to be crossing her first grade pool party layout off my to do list!!
This project actually started when I saw the Summer Splash Epoxy Icons, that cute little anchor piece seemed like it was made to go with my photo since both girls have an anchor on their swim suits. The rolling waves and that adorable whale were perfect to add in to go along with the water theme.
I used my die cutting machine to cut out various sized circles from my cardstock, added pieces of patterned paper behind some of the circles, and also added the Blue Skinny Glitter Tape behind a few of the circles too. The Glitter Tape really catches your eye!
To finish my layout, I also added some of the Blue Sequins from the Toppings Set, and a few of the Blue Pinwheels for a little more texture and shine.
I love all the blue embellishments mixed in together, they all look so pretty and sparkly!

How To Use Foam and Acetate Sheets to Make Shakers 0
Rebecca here with a couple of new shaker cards made with the Foam and Acetate refill sheets. There are a couple of extra steps that you need to take if you are making a shaker from the sheets versus from a Queen and Co Shaker Card Kit.

Heart Throb Shaker Cards! 0
Michele Boyer here today sharing two cards using one of my favorite paper pads EVER, Heart Throb. The colors are so soft, so pretty!
First I used one of the Heart Throb patterns beneath a Waves Foam Front. I simply cut the patterned paper to just slightly smaller than my card front (which is included with the Foam Front Shaker kit). I filled the openings with Heart Throb toppings then adhered the acetate and die-cut cardstock cover.
I tied a bit of gold cord then stamped a die-cut tag and adhered it beneath the bow. I find it’s much easier to simply slip tags beneath bows, rather than tie them within. In doing so, the tag is secured in place without moving around or loosening the cord. (Stamps and tag die by Paper Smooches.)
My second card uses more pretty Heart Throb paper as well as the heart, hello and love dies, all included within the Heart Throb kit.
Before adhering the hello and love words, I die-cut three of each and layered together to create thicker elements. I adhered a thin scrap of gray floral paper along the left side (much too pretty to toss), and left a bit of the white card base to show. Once everything was assembled, I adhered a few tiny floral Heart Throb toppings.
Thanks so much for visiting today!
