Xmas Joy 2020 – Studio Tekturek

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! Today it´s again my turn to share my monthly Studio Tekturek desing team project. I scapped our 2020 family Christmas foto for this layout using non- and christmas-themed papers in combination. I love the blue-red-and white combo here.

This is what the finished page looks like. I used the following Studio Tekturek collections to create this page: One Way Ticket, Peachy Christmas and This Summertime. I love the „This Summertime“ collection so much! the colours are also perfect for a Christmas theme.

I used a die cut leftover protective sheet from a clear double sided adhesive sheet by Elizabeth Craft Designs as my stencil. It´s a piece leftover from die cutting that particular die cut die with their background die. The leftover sheet works perfectly as a stencil for creating a fun background under the photo. I used Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (Mother of Pearl) with the DIY stencil.

For the rest I mainly did fussy cutting and layered various bits and pieces next to each other and overlappingly along the middle, where the papers change and added various fussy cut labels towards the left top corner.

In addition to the papers and stenciling, I did some stamping with various roller stamps from Studio Calico and Dear Lizzy. The title „2020“ is done with Thickers and I actually fussy cut „8´s“ to make „2´s“. For finishing touches I also added some enamel dots. That´s pretty much it. The journaling is hidden behind the photo (see the tag peeking out?).

I really love the Studio Tekturek papers so very much! It´s a small family owned company and during these pandemic times, I would like you to consider supporting them and bying their papers, so they can keep on designing and producing the gorgeous collections, like so far! I am not getting payed for advertising them, this is just something that means a lot to me. Thank you!

Wishing you a lovely Christmas holiday time! We had a quiet, lovely Christmas amongst only the closest family (us and the kids). It was perfect! We cooked together, ate good food together and spend a lovely evening with each other! A perfect Christmas eve!

Take care! We are on lockdown number three here in Austria since yesterday…

Meine zwei Hübschen – The Wild Hare Kits

Hello everyone and welcome to my first The Wild Hare Kits September Petite Kit project share! This month I received a Petite Kit from The Wild Hare Kits to design with and it had 2 sheets of Pink Fresh Studio´s „Just A Little Lovely“ collection papers in it and I just ADORE them – especially the B-Sides!!! <3

I started September off by creating a layout based on this months sketch. Have you played with the Wild Hare Kits monthly sketches yet? I find them very inspiring and always have a great time playing with them!

Here are the steps I did to create the layout:

  1. Take pink, green and blue spray inks and mix them with a little bit of water to create a lighter tone and a more liquid watercolour look. Now grab a paint brush and apply the deluted ink onto the page copying the watercolour look of the paper, but only apply the paint onto the areas according the September sketch.
  2. After the first layer is dry, apply some ink droplets randomly onto the background for additional detail. Use the same colours.
  3.  Next place a stencil – I used my Carta Bella Garden Geometric Stencil which came with the kit for this purpose – onto  the Just A Little Lovely paper on top of the previously painted area and apply Nuvo Mother of Pearl Embellishment Mousse with a palette knife onto the background for interest and texture. Let dry properly before moving to the next step.
  4. Now take the Sparkle City Speech Bubble paper and fussy cut the speech pubble with scissors. Arrange onto the page, but don´t adhere it on place yet.
  5. Next take the Shimelle Sparkle City sticker sheet and add the green toned border sticker (cut in smaller pieces) next to the speech pubble paper and underneath it, so that is shows only partially.
  6. Keep adding more decorational elements from the Sparkle City collection papers and sticker sheet until you are happy with the result. Then arrange the photos in place and adhere everything on their places. Add additional decoration using sentiment and/or word stamps next to the photos.
  7. Finish the page off by outlining it with a black pen, then attach the glitter alphas on place to build a layout title.
  8. You can also add journaling, but I chose not to, as I find that the title tells it all.

I´ve again recorded a video for you to watch. I hope it inspires you and gives you a better idea on each an every step!

Also, we always love to see you take your twist on our monthly sketch!! So if you do, be sure to tag the Wild Hare Kits on social media and/or use #thewildharekits, so we can come and leave some love!! We´d love to see what you make!

Happy scrapping and see you again on the 22nd with another TWHK project share!!!
