Hello and happy Tuesday! It´ s been ONE MONTH with my daily art practice pieces for 2022. Thirtyone days on a row – well, not quite, but almost. I had an unplanned break in between and worked a bit ahead to keep up, but other than that, it´ s one page & video a day.
I felt like doing blue on this one, because the almanac page had lots of it on it. So I kept in the color scheme. Also some Distress Crayons in there again too and of course Klartext “Denglisch 2” stamp set, as always. And Brusho´ s this time with one of my STAMPlorations stencils on the background as well as Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. Good to get some of the sprays into use also.
I hope you enjoy today´ s piece. Here are some close-up photos too:
Here is a bonus video – a quick flip-thru of the month January. I will try and make such a video at the end of every month throughout this project.
This was a fun one to make. And the stamp sentiment translates to: “Two can play at that game” / “Tit for tat”.
Hello and happy Saturday! Here is my yesterday´ s daily art practice piece and the video. Keeping it short today – need to still do my today´ s page and edit a video ;-).
Notice, that I´ ve already added the past 3 day´ s tags to the page? See the video for more details.
And now to the video – hope you enjoy! I speeded it up just a tad. The original is still under 10 minutes, but I figured you might just want to see a more fast-forward-version? See you again tomorrow with another one!
Hello there! Today I get to share my very first scrapbook layout tutorial for & with the Studio Forty Moonchild collection. I am very thrilled to be joining this team and being able to share scrapbooking fun with their products!! Here is a little sneak peek on my very first project:
In case you don´t know Studio Forty yet, you should definitely check them out (go here). The owner and designer, Monika, started the company in spring 2016 with her own stamp and paper designs. There are also other manufacturers products available at their store too. The website is in Polish, but you can easily change the language by using the Google Translate tool featured at their site.
Like I mentioned earlier this month, I am joining a very talented team, who truly sets the bar very high, so I´m really hoping I can meet the expectations :). I´ve created a layout with the Moonchild collection and using various transparent stickers and clear stamps from the Studio Forty range. I immediately fell for this collection. The colors and designs are so very beautiful!!! And I scrapped again, after quite a while and it really felt good! So I´m hoping you will like the results and get inspired. Here is my finished layout:
I used a resist technique with the Patterns 4 clear stamp set, heat embossing and Brusho on the background and built my page around that.
I used scraps of white paper to create green and pink colored papers with Brusho colours (see the video for details) and then stamped flowers and leaves (Flowers 1 stamp set) with black ink and fussy cut those.
The title of the layout is also stamped (Happy Memories stamp set) and then again fussy cut. I´ve added a couple transparent stickers (Colors of Memories & Hello Today stickers sheets) for interest next to the photos and the stamped images. I really like the fact that they are very thin and transparent, this way they don´t make the page bulky.
The enamel dots happen to compliment the Brusho color which is a happy accident. They are from my own stash, but I´ve been looking at the nice sets they have at the Studio Forty store – might need to get a few of those for further projects :-)!!! Finally I´ve added hand drawn and written details and some Nuvo Crystal Drops for additional detail as well as black ink splatters (Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze) for interest. The story behind the multiple photos is simple; it´s not that easy to take a family picture where everyone looks their best. There is always someone making faces or looking somewhere else than towards the camera ;-)… so there, that is the story behind this layout and there are plenty of good memories behind these Christmas group photos of ours :). Hope you enjoy the video too:
Hello everyone, time for another Elizabeth Crafts Designs project post. Today I´m sharing a Mother´s Day card and present box set with you. For this set I used the Through the Lens – Metal paper series papers with the Fitted Circles, the Stitched Rectangles and the Bunch of Flowers 4 die cut dies. This is how I created both the card and the packaging.
Step 1: Take a piece of watercolor paper and apply Brusho Chrystal Colour onto it, mist with water spray and let dry. Step 2: Use the Bunch of Flowers 4 die cut die set to cut flowers from the previously created watercolor paper. Step 3: Apply Double Sided Adhesive tape onto a 4×5,5 inch sized piece of white cardstock and adhere the blue paper from the Through the Lens – Metal paper set onto the white cardstock piece. Now cut a hole into the upper middle of the paper using the Fitted Circles die cut die. Step 4: Cut a piece of brown Through the Lens – Metal paper using the Banners die cut die set. Cut a piece of twine and draw a circle onto a white card base for placement guide.Step 5: Cut a small circle and use a marker to color it red. Then adhere into the middle of the previously cut banner piece. Adhere the banner onto the twine and then adhere the paper over the banner using 3D foam pads. Step 6: Adhere the flowers around the circle overlappingly and add silver puffy stars here and there for additional decoration. Step 7: Outline the card with a white gel pen and attach a bow for decoration. Cut a Hello sentiment and color it with a marker or use a colored cardstock, adhere underneath the bow. The card is finished.Step 8: Use a milk carton cutting template and cut from a light blue cardstock, then assembly the carton, outline the edges with a white gel pen. Cut rectangles with the Stitched Rectangles die cut set and adhere onto the sides of the carton. Use leftover Brusho flowers and mini hearts from the Poppy the Owl set and adhere into the middle of each rectangle piece for interest. Take a piece of hemp cord and adhere two flower pieces together, attach a heart in the middle and hand on top of the carton with a clothes pin. Fill with a present of your choice. This is how the finished set looks like:
I hope you have enjoyed this little step-by-step tutorial and get inspired to get your die cut dies out and create!!!
