Take 5 Tuesday Challenge - June!!!

Hi friends, it's Mary Ann here today! Can you believe it's already time for the June Take 5 Tuesday Challenge?? Where has the time gone?? It seems like we were all just working on the January challenge ;)
Here's this months challenge list:
For my layout, I used patterned paper, a sticker, cardstock, die cut, and a photo of something other than a person as my 5 items. To start, I added the journaling to the white cardstock, then used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the title, and backed it with the pretty wood grain patterned paper, and then the floral paper. Next I painted on a few layers of different colors of green watercolor paints, and then splattered on a bright pink and a gold mist. I cut the leaf cluster out of the same wood grain paper, and added it along with my embellishments and photo. To finish the layout, I stamped the date, and then stamped the town name with a vintage postal stamp from my stash.

And...here's even more inspiration from some of the amazing Paper Issues Design Team!

Lisa made this darling 6th Birthday card using the colors yellow, white and blue, along with patterned paper and a die cut. This is a card you would want to keep in your scrapbook forever!

This fun layout by Ann uses the pretty Fancy Free collection by Pink Paislee, and the colors yellow and blue, patterned paper, ink and stickers for her 5 challenge items. Isn't Ann's stitching awesome on this one!

Chelsea mixed a combination of the colors yellow and blue, wood grain, die cut and two different fonts. Shimelle's Starshine collection is perfect to use with the 3-D glasses photo! It's an out of this world layout!

Here's an 8 1/2 x 11 layout by Janet with wood grain, white, a sticker, 2 different fonts and a picture that's of something other than a person as her 5 items. Don't you love how your eye goes right to the photo of that sweet little goat!!

I want to scraplift Michelle's layout, I just love how she showcased the Fancy Free collection by Pink Paislee! Her inspiration items are: die cuts, pattern paper, ink, cardstock and doodling,

The sweet photo of Melissa's pup draws you in, and then you notice all the fun embellishments! The mix of feathers and dogs and flowers and sun looks wonderful on the pretty wood grain paper.

Dannielle's layout about a day out with a friend from out of town is so bright and cheery! It makes me want to pack the suitcase and go! Patterned paper, sticker, die cut, flowers and ink make up her 5 inspiration items.

How about this card from Rachel? Her combination of blue, patterned paper, washi tape, stickers and a die cut make the cutest birthday card! I've already asked her to save it 'till December to send to me ;)

And last but not least, this wonderful layout from Tegan where she used yellow, blue, patterned paper, washi tape and a sticker. The Attwell collection looks amazing on this Tegan!!
