Free yourself – Off The Rails Scrapbooking

Hi there! It is again time for another fun challenge over at Off The Rails Scrapbooking. This time all in blue and gold (yum!) and this is my take on the lovely colour palette for September.

This is the palette to get inspired by:

And here is my take on it:

I have used a The Crafter´s Workshop stencil in combination with transparent modeling paste and loose glitter on the background. I then added patterned paper elements that match the colour palette and finally decorated with some wooden embellishments and word stickers.

The idea of this layout is about surrounding yourself with the right kind of people, not with ones that drain you and pull you down, but with ones that do you good. Thus the silly face pic :).

Hope to see you join in this month!!!
Happy scrapping,

Beach fun – Off the Rails Scrapbooking

Hello there! Today is my turn for another inspirational post over at Off The Rails Scrapbooking :). I really, really like the August colour palette, so you might notice that there are some similarities to that in my layout :)…. I normally scrap boy pages in more masculine colours, but I find myself drawn to brighter, more feminine colours lately and thought that it would be nice to scrap the boys in new colours for a change :). So here is what I created:

In addition to using the lovely August colours, I´ve added all kinds of little details that always speak to me (stamping, misting, badges and enamel dots as well as flair buttons). Love to use those. And if you look really closely, you might even see some modeling paste details in there too :). All things that make me happy and make creating a fun process. I hope my boy does not mind the colours 😉 …

ps. remember my previous post with the misted arrow pattern card? I´ve used all the leftover pieces on this layout (see the banners?) and tossed nothing :). And still going strong with my „using it all up“ goal too – see how many papers I´ve actually used on this layout (I am very proud of myself :)…).

Have fun scrapping,
xoxo, Sanna

This way for smiles! – Off the Rails Scrapbooking

Hello there! Isn´t the Off the Rails August colour palette just gorgeous??!! I love it!! And since this months sponsor is Lawn Fawn and I happen to own some of their products, I have combined both of the themes for my inspirational step-by-step card project :).  This is a August color combo inspired Lawn Fawn product card tutorial.

Here is how I created the card:

I first cut five pieces of watercolour paper and sprayed them with various spray inks (Dylusions, Tattered Angels, Heidi Swapp and Lindy´s Stamp Gang). I mainly kept to red, orange and purple tones.

 When the paper was dry, I took my „This way to fun for SC“ Lawn Fawn stamp set and stamped arrows with black dye ink onto each paper piece.

Then I fussy cut them.

Next I glued the arrows down on my card base and chose a sentiment stamp from the stamp set for stamping. See how the sentiment consists of three different words? I only wanted to stamp one word onto one arrow, so I only partly inked the sentiment stamp and then pressed the inked image onto paper. This way I can vary where my words will be on the card and since the arrows/chevrons are so small, there is only place for one word per chevron.

Next I opened the card and stamped smileys inside the card and colored those with markers.

I then added a Lawn Fawn trimming in the middle of the card for additional detail.

Finally I also added some additional stamping into the chevron patterns for more eye candy/detail. Now my card was done. I hope you have enjoyed this little step-by-step and get inspired to create with the lovely colour palette from August. I really like the Lawn Fawn products too, especially the stamps (you know I´m a stamp lover in general, right?) as they are very versatile and they have many kinds of designs and really tiny images too that can be combined in so many ways!!

This is the finished card – inside and outside :).

Happy crafting!! And hope to see you join in on the August challenge!!
