Join the Moxxie Muses and win the *NEW* Quite Contrary Collection

Hello Moxxie fans!  Welcome to the August Muse-A-Palooza Blog Hop!  This month we are featuring one of our brand new collections, Quite Contrary.   So dig out your garden photos and get ready because the Muses will be planting some great ideas in your creative minds for this beautiful line of papers and stickers.   

The blend of muted tones is perfect for outdoor garden photo pages, but don't be afraid to mix in bold colors if that is what your garden grows!  I used this line to scrapbook my daughter with some really bright red posies:

To start with I removed the center of the Sprinkle A Day paper and fussy cut around the water can in the bottom left corner.

To create the frame in the center of the piece I cut strips from the Vine & Dandy paper and  lightly tacked them down on my cutting mat...

...overlapping the edges so that they were at a 90 degree angle.

Using my ruler and an exacto knife, I cut diagonally through the corner.

You can see when I removed the paper scrap from the top that the corners meet perfectly!
 I love this technique and it is a lot more impressive if there is a pattern to match!

I backed the frame with a piece of Seedin' and Weedin' paper and then I just had fun playing with picture and embellishment placement!

I picked up the color of the flowers from the pictures and used it in the title...

I cut out a couple of those fabulous seed packets, added a die cut sticker and some of my favorite bling from Want2Scrap!

 And don't worry!  If your thumb is not so green you can create fabulous cards and/or home decor projects!

Here are the details on winning this entire collection!
