Tangerine Twist

When I see scrapbook products featuring Disney characters, Thomas the Tank Engine, and the Peanuts gang (just to name a few), I immediately think of Sandylion. This company is widely known for creating a complete line of scrapbook products for these well-known trademark themes. But, did you know that Sandylion creates more than this?

With a complete line of everyday scrapbooking related products, including two designer lines by Kelli Panacci and Margot Elena, Sandylion is sure to have the perfect products to complete your project!

One of the newest collections being introduced from Sandylion is Tangerine Twist. The color scheme is primarily black, white, orange, and red-orange making this collection very useable for almost any season or occasion during the year. The patterns in the Tangerine Twist collection feature bold flowers, leaves, circles, doodles, and more, including one page that is complete with word blocks that are perfect for embellishments, titles, or just as a background.

From the Sandylion Tangerine Twist collection I was sent 3 each of the single-sided 12 x 12 inch patterned papers in this collection along with a 4 x 12 inch sheet of Tangerine Twist Clear Stickers with Glitter and a 4 x 13.5 inch sheet of Tangerine Twist Cardstock stickers with Glitter.

While this collection is very up-to-date in it’s style and appearance, it also has a little bit of a retro feel to it in my opinion. I often find it difficult to scrap photos from days gone by because the latest fashions in scrapbooking don’t always portray the timeframe of the pictures I am trying to scrap. Although the pictures I chose for this particular layout are not that old, I still felt that the Tangerine Twist collection colors and style would reflect well with the subjects in the photos.

Using a sheet of Prism cardstock as the base for this layout, I cut a shape from the Doodle Madness paper and mounted a rectangle of Pop Rocks paper onto the shape. For a bit of added interest I used a strip of Twist and Shout horizontally across the page and layered a flower border sticker strip from the Tangerine Twist sticker sheet along the bottom of the strip. Since the stickers are clear, it was easy to add a phrase to the photos helping tie the two of them together. I added a little pen work and some journaling and my layout was done! I loved the results I achieved with these older photos coupled with the funky new Tangerine Twist designs.

Because there are so many wonderful patterns to choose from in this collection, it was hard to know where to begin on my next project. I decided that I would make a layout for my son’s 6 x 12 book. The Shake It Up paper reminded me of falling leaves and would work well for the background on this layout. To add some contrast I punched a border and a large circle from the Simply Sweet paper. I layered the border along the top of the Shake It Up paper and the large circle is layered under the title which was cut from the Words Galore paper. The Out Of This World paper is made up of various colors of ovals with daisies making it easy to cut the three circles used along the top of the pictures. I made a floral border from the leftover clear stickers to go along the left side of the layout. Since the clear stickers have glitter on them I decided to mimic that look by using Stickles on portions of the designs in the different patterns.

Now that the holidays are quickly approaching, I am constantly on the lookout for the inspiration for new cards. While the colors and patterns work beautifully with many different themes, it is also perfect for fall themed projects. I like to send out a few Thanksgiving cards and since I was sent a generous supply of the Tangerine Twist collection I had plenty of paper to create this fall themed card. I used Shake It Up and Simply Sweet as the background for my stamped image. I also added four stickers from the Tangerine Twist Cardstock stickers with Glitter.

I found the Tangerine Twist collection by Sandylion to be completely versatile and is able to compliment the many varieties of photos, vintage or current, and projects that I have to complete. The clear stickers and cardstock stickers are the perfect addition to this collection and with the glitter added to the images it turns an ordinary sticker into an embellishment with bling!
