Here we go again.. – Studio Tekturek

Hello everyone and happy Saturday!!! How come it´s already end of August?? Where did this month go? Eek..soon the school starts again and fall is here. It´s been a strange summer for sure. But on the positive side, my mojo is back and I feel better again. Not so drained anymore. And today I´m also sharing my first DT project, created using the gorgeous Studio Tekturek Strawberry Shake collection.

Here is the crazy layout I created with the happy and bright summer collection:

There is a story behind these silly photos… These were taken by me in March while at the hospital (during guarantine, I might add!). A day after my cruciate surgery I was all alone in a 3-bed-room and bored. Also, I might have been unter the influence of painkillers still and I took these photos :).

I found that they work so well with this sugar sweet collection that I made them the focal point of this layout. I´ve used plenty of Strawberry Shake papers, stickers and alphas on this layout. Only the spray ink, stamping, acrylic embellishments are not from the collection, but from my own stash.

I´ve recorded a start-to-finish video to go with this layout, so you get a better idea of each an every step. Hope you like the video and get inspired!!

And if you fall in love with this colorful collection, do contact your local scrapbook store and ask them to stock up some Studio Tekturek at their store ;-). I´ll be posting a tutorial on the 29th of every month during my DT term, so if you liked what you saw, do come back for more next month!!

Wishing you a fabulous weekend and happy scrapping!

You are appreciated tag – TAGplorations May challenge reveal

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! Today it´s again time to share this months TAGplorations challenge with you. This monts theme is: All About Mom and as an additional element you are asked to use Vellum.

This is my take for the reveal:

I took a piece of vellum and stamped the Heartfelt Hibiscus stamp image onto it, then poured white embossing powder over the stamped image and heat set the powder. Next I flipped the image around and colored it from the reverse side with alcohol markers and then adhered the fussy cut image onto the tag base with clear double sided adhesive tape.

For decoration I added some faux stitching around the edges with a white Signo Uni-ball pen and stamped sentiments from „For The Birds“ stamp set onto dark purple cardstock. Those again got heat embossed with white embossing powder. For finishing touches I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze onto the smaller flowers and silver Nuvo sequins to additional sparcle here and there.

The ribbon has exactly the same color as the purple carstock and the pink patterned paper is from my older stash (still destashing here by using it all up) and got die cut with the Nesting Manila Tag die set´s biggest sized tag die. I think the sentiment fits this months theme really well as we should appreciate what our mom´s do for us!
