Bella BLVD & Canvas Corp Brands Team-Up week – You have my heart

bella boulevard hop banner 4Hello lovelies and welcome to the Bella BLVD and Canvas Corp Brands Team Up week!! I am very thrilled to be able to be part of this design team-up and today it´s time to share my final project – a super bright and happy layout:

Sanna LippertI started with a piece of Ken Oliver Water Media Paper. I always added a small splodge of water mist onto the paper, then opened a spray ink bottle and let ink droplets fall into the wet area. The colors need to dry completely before adding the second color, that way they don´t blend with each other. I wanted to create a half ciecle with the color splodges.

Sanna LippertNext I took a circle punch and punched quite a few circles out of the Sweet Sweet Spring collection papers (links to the used products at the end of this post). After that I inked the edges with faded jeans Distress Ink. When I had enough circles, I first adhered the white paper piece onto a light blue patterned paper and then glued all the circles overlappingly next to each other. Then I covered some parts of the colored circle with patterned paper strips and outlined those with a black pen.  Sanna LippertI added faux stitching around the edges with a black pen, adhered a Chipboard Script word „Hello“ on top of the patterned paper strips and using small alpha stickers, added some journaling underneath the title. Sanna LippertThere are also stickers from the same paper collection in there. I´ve outlined those with a black pen to make them stand out more from the bold background. Sanna LippertI again used black Glimmer Glaze splatters as contrast against the bold and colorful background and fussy cut some sentiments from the patterned paper to add around the photo. Sanna LippertThis is how the finished layout looks like:

Bella BLVD & Canvas Corp Brands BLOG HOP – I love you

bella boulevard hop banner 4Hello lovelies and welcome to the Bella BLVD and Canvas Corp Brands Team Up week!! Today I´d like to share my second design team-up project with you – a bright and happy layout created with the Sweet Sweet Spring papers and Tattered Angels spray inks:

Sanna LippertAs a starting point I took a piece of Ken Oliver Water Media Paper, and using a pencil drew the areas onto the paper where my photos will later be. I then took a water tank paint brush and used the Tutti Frutti tone from the Candendar Mist Kit (English Garden) to paint some hearts onto the background (for supplies, see links on the end of this post).

Sanna LippertAfter drawing the hearts I used the Iris Baseboard tone from the same Calendar Kit and added purple droplets onto the background around the photos.

Sanna LippertNext I used the Olive Wine Glimmer Mist from the same calendar kit and drew green flowers with a paint brush onto the background.

Sanna LippertI wanted to add soem stamping around the photos, so I took a 7gypsies stamp and a turquoise marker to create blue stamped images.

Sanna LippertFinally I also used the Ivory Baseboard tone from the Calendar Kit to create white droplets here and there for additional detail.

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertThen I added some yellow and pink spray ink droplets onto the background (Summer Glow, Tea Cup & Rosey from Tattered Angels). I also colored the Bella BLVD Chipboard Scripts with the kit colors and added some faux stitching with a white gel pen.

I then cut the water media paper into a right size and several different paper strips on the sides of the layout from the Sweet Sweet Spring collection.

Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertFinally I outlined some of the papers and the red hearts with a black pen, added some white hightlights here and there and stamped a date next to the photos. And I could not leave my favorite product, the black Glimmer Glaze unused, so in the end I added just a few droplets fo black here and there for additional contrast.

This is how the fnished layout looks like:

Gut gemacht! – Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hello and happy Wednesday! Time to share a little card project with you today. I´ve again used plenty of Elizabeth Craft Designs product on this one.

Sanna LippertHere is how I created the card:

Sanna LippertI first cut a piece of Soft Finish Cardstock into a size of 8×14 centimeters, then adhered this piece onto Clear Double Sided Adhesive and ran the paper thru a die cutting machine twice with the Alphabet 2 – Lower Case die cut die. I used some of the alphas for the „Love my Crazy Bunch“ layout (see details here). I then removed all other alphas and saved them for a later project and only used the negative piece for this project.

Sanna LippertNext I used various shades of blue Glimmer Mist to color the die cut piece.

Sanna LippertAfter that I cut several white flowers from the Soft Finish Cardstock using the Bunch of Flowers 4 die cut die. Then I inked the edges of the flowers with light blue Distress Ink. The flowers remind me of one of my favorite spring flowers, Forget Me Not.

Sanna LippertNow all I needed to do was to adhere the inked alpha piece into the middle of a white card base and add some yellow seam binding for additional decoration.

Sanna LippertAfter that I added some rhinestones for additional interest. I used yellow, green and blue ones.

Sanna LippertThen I layered the die cut flowers over each other and added some rhinestones in the middle. Sanna LippertI wanted to add some additional shine to the center of the flowers, so I applied some Glossy Accents and Warm Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter around the rhinestones. I let the glitter dry for a while and then just dabbed the residue away. In the end I just added a hand written sentiment to the card and it was done. Here are some detail photos of the finished card:

Xmas hybrid layout tutorial – The Nifty Pixel

A while back I promised to share a tutorial for the hybrid layout called „Xmas“ – created with The Nifty Pixel digi collection called Berry & Fawn. It is almost Valentine´s already, so about time to finally share this..

Sanna LippertSo this is the finished hybrid layout, created with this Berry & Fawn kit:

The Nifty Pixeland this is how I created the layout:

Sanna LippertI first chose the pink toned patterned paper as my starting point and added some Vignette Impressions and bits and pieces from the Elements pack onto that paper. I do all this „prework“ with InDesign and when I am done with the digital layers, I print the paper with my Epson A3 format color printer.

Sanna LippertNext I took a regular light blue cardstock to adhere the hybrid paper on and since the paper is very bold and lively, I printed the photos in black and white. I use a Canon Selphy for printing my photos.

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertAfter that I took a golden doily and some hand written words (both a present by my lovely scrappy friend Lizzy – I adore the words!!) and assemblied those next to the the photos.

Sanna LippertSince there is a lot of pattern and detail in the background already, I found that I didn´t need that many elements to accompany, so I pretty much kept with the words and the doily.

Sanna LippertJust added a few wood veneer trees here and there for additional detail.

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertNext I punched a few white snowflakes out of the residue piece of the pink patterned paper. They really go with the digi snowflakes so well that almost cannot tell the difference. I hope you can also see the pink glitter details on the background? Well, that is one additional element from the digi collection, not real glitter!! Does sure look like real one, doesn´t it?!!

Sanna LippertNext I added a few white texture spray splatters here and there for additional interest. The spray is by Imagine Crafts.

Sanna Lippert Sanna LippertFinally I just glued the wood veneer title down on it´s place, added some Stickles onto the wooden elements. It is a Christmas themed page, so some additional glitter is just fine :).

sannalippertSo with just a few bits and pieces and small touches the layout is finished. Fast, fun and easy!!! Hope you enjoyed this little step-by-step!

Happy hybrid scrapping!!
