Layout with The Wild Hare Kits kit

Hi there lovelies and happy Friday!! Last month I had the honour of doing a guest design team gig over at the Wild Hare Kit kit club and I loved it! I noticed that I´ve really missed scrapbooking alot! And now I just cannot stop scrapping..

So, therefore even if my GDT month is gone, I´ve still got some papers left from my Deluxe Kit and I am using them all up. So be prepared for a few more layouts to come. And besides, we took like 4000 Fotos on our vacation to Brazil last summer, so there is plenty to scrap about still.

Here is my latest layout:

I did a bit of fussy cutting and also punched circles and butterflies for the page and alighned all the bits and bobs along the patterned paper edges. But before I adhered everything on place, I gave the background a Glimmer Mist treatment with Gold And Aquamarine tones. I also sneaked some stamp images onto the background (stamp by VivaLasVegaStamps). Very light and subtle stamping.

To get the journaling stand out a bit better from the leafy background paper, I applied some gesso with a paint brush to the area I wanted to have my journaling on. That way it´s more readable. That´s it for today. Since I´ve been scrapping so much, my white cardstock stack has reduced dramatically 🙂 … time to order some more, I think! It feels so good to be back at scrapping again. I also noticed that I´m adding much more journaling to the pages at the moment, feeling the need to put the words down on paper. Recording and documenting those memories!

See you soon with another layout maybe!

Whimsical home decor piece – Canvas Corp Brands

Hello lovelies!!! A while back I saw a beautiful home decor piece on Pinterest, created with butterflies. I have been wanting to create a butterfly home decor piece of my own ever since and after finding a reasonably prized glass dome at IKEA, I finally could create one.

Here is what my finished piece looks like:

The fun part about this project is that I´ve used lots of „junk“ to make this piece. The wire is from an old table calendar. I tossed the calendar and kept the wire. The butterflies are punched out of an old notebook paper I found at a local flea market and the bottom wood base (covered with burlap) is a piece of wood from my husband´s crafty project. So basically I just altered those and gave them new life :).

The fun part of this project was to use Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, some Canvas Corp Burlap and punches to bring some life to the old junk objects. I have a full start-to-finish fast forward video tutorial prepared for you to watch! Hope you like it!!!

If you would like to read more about this project, hop over to the Canvas Corp Blog to read more details over there. I´ve listed some tips and ideas over there. And now, here is the video:

I hope you enjoyed watching the video and got inspired by it to create a fun spring home decor piece of your own! Don´t forget to add some sparckle to your project with the gorgeous Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist colours!!! Here is a link to the spray ink lines.

Happy crafting! Let´s stay creative!!!

Awesome – Paperilla magazine

Hello there! Today I would like to share a project with you that I created for the Paperilla magazine´s blog (Finnish scrapbooking magazine). Right now it is very trendy to use an electronic cutting machine on scrapbooking and cardmaking projects. They create fabulous effects to any project, but what if you don´t own such a machine? You can create great layered effects also with other products.

I, for example, used the Martha Stewart puch all over the page star punch for creating my layered paper pattern. You could also create a similar design by hand cutting those images from the paper with a precision knife (Fiskars etc.). The great thing about the punch I used is that you can use it anywhere on the page – not only around the edges!

This page idea is also perfect for reducing that paper stash we all have. You can use plenty of those paper scraps on this kind of page idea! I´ve prepared a little start-to-finish tutorial on this page for you to watch, too. Hope you like it!

I hope you get inspired by it and take a second look at your stash and punches and find new ways to use your product.

Hei, tässä video projektista, jonka tein Paperilla-lehden blogiin. Sähköisten leikkureiden käyttö (esim. Silhouette Cameo) on nyt todella trendikästä skräppäilyssä ja korttien teossa. Mutta myös ilman sähköistä paperileikkuria voi luoda kivoja efektejä sivuihin. Käyttämällä joko käsileikkuria (mm. Fiskars) ja lyijykynää tai jokapaikan kuvioleikkuria/ikkunalävistäjää (punch all over the page punch) voi luoda ihan yhtä hienoja kuvioita skräppisivuille.

Minä käytin tämän työn tekemiseen Martha Stewartin jokapaikan ikkunalävistäjää. Se on siitä mahtava, että sillä voi tehdä kuvioita ihan minne tahansa, eikä sen käyttö rajoitu vain sivun reuna-aluille. Kannattaa siis katsoa omia skräppitarvikkeita sillä silmällä ja kehitellä uusia ideoita niiden käyttämiseen. Myös paperijämäpinot tykkäävät tällaisesta tekniikasta kovasti. Lävistäjästä riippuen tämäntyyliseen sivuun saa hyödynnettyä useammankin jämäpalan. Toivottavasti innostutte kokeilemaan! Videotutoriaali on englanniksi, joten jos teillä jää kysyttävää, niin vastaan myös mielelläni kysymyksiin!

Hallo! Hier ist ein Layout, das ich für die Paperilla Scrapbooking Zeitschrift gestaltet habe. Man muss nicht immer eine elektrische Schneidemaschine besitzen, um schöne Muster zu kreieren. Mit manch einem Produkt, das wir bereits haben, kann man genau so schöne Muster gestalten. Ich hoffe, das Video inspiriert euch zum Ausprobieren!

Happy scrapping,
xoxo, Sanna
