We Fruit! 0
For as long as I’ve been old enough to drive to and from my favorite town in Colorado from my home in Utah, I’ve loved stopping at the roadside fruit stands. Some of the world’s best fruit happens to be on this trek—Green River watermelons, Palisade peaches, Olathe sweetcorn… it’s all so good!

Perfect Vintage 'Pear!' 0
It's Mary Ann Jenkins here today with a layout to share using the new Fruit Basket Shaker kit, it's filled with the cutest little fimo fruit pieces and wonderful fruit dies too! This time, my layout started with an old family photo and a stamp! The photo is of my husband's grandparents (my kids great grandparents) back in 1943. The "Together We Make The Perfect Pear" stamp was the perfect sentiment to use with the old black and white.
I layered 4 pieces of patterned paper from the Mat Stack on to my cardstock, of course I had to use the pear design!
Next, I made a pear shaker box using the strawberry die and foam piece, turning it upside down to create the look of a pear. I also cut one more pear, and added the black "seed" gems to the center.
I love the look of the foam shakers, they add just enough dimension to my layout, but aren't bulky once the layout goes in the album.
I printed my journaling, and finished it off with the stamp and a little machine stitching.
We still have more Fruit Basket fun to share with you, so make sure you stop back by tomorrow!

Orange you Happy? 0
It's Mary Ann Jenkins here today with a new layout using the adorable Fruit Basket Shaker kit. This is such a cute kit, I love everything that is included, especially the fimo shaker "filling" pieces There are juicy little watermelons, some of your favorite citrus fruits and even tiny bright red strawberries, it's a whole fruit salad!!
For my layout, I decided to document the quaint little fruit stand in our town. We stop there about once a week for oranges and is such a part of our routine, it's something I'll always want to remember.
To get started, I printed my journaling using my computer and then sprinkled and splattered some watercolors (nothing fancy, I borrowed them from my 8 year old) on to my cardstock. Once the paint was dry, I added my 2 photos. Next I made the sweet little orange wedge shaker using the beautiful paper from the paper pad, and filled it with the tiny orange slices. I tucked in a small cluster of green bakers twine right on top of the leaves to add a bit more texture. The bakers twine is included in the kit too, for this I just separated the green strands from the white strands.
To finish my layout, I glued some of the tiny orange fimo slices here and there , I just love the little orange bits!!
An Apple a Day! 0
Mary-Ann Maldonado here with you today to share a layout I created with the new Fruit Basket Shaker Kit. It is super darling and you can do so many things with it, as you have probably have already seen! The Design team is really doing a fantastic job, showcasing different techniques.
I started my layout with apple picking pictures, the apple die, the apple Fimo's, and twine. I added my photos and the stamped sentiment before playing around with apple placement. To stamp without one of the words, all you do is color the stamp (minus the word) with a color pen, huff on the stamp to warm it, and stamp.
I started with creating my 3-D apples. I cut several layers of the apple innards, folded them in half and backed the outer edges with apples to created a 3-D look. (See photo below.) I cut my title and started working on the shaker apple quarters at the bottom.
The empty space at the bottom needed more apples. I used the quarter orange to create sections of apples. I removed the tip red line and the small lines that created the orange segments. This created a clean apple wedge.
Then the top felt empty! Ha. That is where the twine came into play and the small segment pieces from the die. I created my whimsical banner. Added a few enamels for color and detail, and that was it!
I hope you have been inspired to bring your fun Queen kits off of the and onto the page.
