Present tags – Paperilla magazine

Hello there! I am totally late with Christmas preparations this year. I simply cannot find enough time to do things at the moment. I´ve got nice plans, but I have trouble making them happen. Someone please give me some extra hours to my days!! So recently I´ve been making present tags. The trouble is, I´ve now got the tags, but no presents yet…I know, just horrible…!

Well, I might as well share the tags and the little how-to..and a little note to friends and loved ones..should you get your presents and cards etc. a bit late this´s the thought that counts, right? RIGHT??

I started by cutting some brown and light brown cardstock into 2 inch wide strips. The perfectly fit into the tag maker punch. I then punched myself a big pile of tags and in the end used the star border punch for creating a nice star border to my tags.

Next I used a stamp by Natalie Kalbach to add some background pattern onto the tags. I used a VersaMark ink with white embossing powder for this purpose.

After that I used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and a Fiskars flower punch to punch some flowers and snowflakes out of a piece of misted/masked leftover paper.

After that I added a little strip of ribbon to each of the tags for additional detail.

Next I glued the punched centerpieces on their places and added some sewing thread and a button on top of them. Then I glued some tiny stars here and there. Those were leftovers from the star border punch and I didn´t want to toss them. This is how the finished tags look like:

and I also made some in green and blue too. For these ones I used a texture paste instead of embossing powder and added a hand written text as additional detail.


 These tags were really quite fast to make. I think I now have enough for this holiday season. So now all I need are some presents….. ;-).

Happy crafting,
xoxo, Sanna

Fascination snow – Paperilla-lehti, February 2014

Hello there, lovelies! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Today I´d like to share with you a layout I created for the Paperilla-lehti (Finnish scrapbooking magazine) issue 1/2014. One is this issues themes was to combine/use old and new products together and I´ve used precut grey cardboard pieces on the background of this layout (I am sure some of you also have these still in your stash):

This was my starting point:

and this is how the finished layout looks like:

I have combined white paint with texture paste to create those white “ice-blocks” and the hints of blue colour are made with pearlescent watercolours. If you are interested in seeing more ideas and artworks, the brand new issue of the magazine is already out and you can find more information about it here. And while you are at it – do put your subscription in!!!

I hope this idea will inspire you to take a second look at your stash and think of new ways to use and incorporate older products in your artworks. Have fun scrapping,

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
