H2O – Pipilonias kreative Welt

Hallo there! I don´t usually scrap in pastellic tones (so might as well add this to the list of strange things going on here lately…). Well, this time I did. That is probably because after seeing the new Simple Stories papers, I just had to use them. And the lovely ScrapBerry´s embellishments go perfectly together with the papers.

I also used some Distress Glitter Rock Candy to create some very subtle dots onto the background.  I first covered the area with transparent struckture paste (thru a stencil) and then quickly applied some Distress Glitter over the area, before the paste was dry.

These feathers I fussy cut from a Kaisercraft paper and added some glitter glue and Distress Glitter onto the as additional decoration.

The rhinestone arrows are by ScrapBerry´s and the Enamel Dots by My Mind´s Eye.

So how are you doing with your summer photos? Already scrapped them all?? I must admit that I have piles and piles of them still to scrap :). Makes me consider maybe starting on Project Life – there, I said it… I´ve been avoiding PL products for a while now on purpose, as I know that one I get started I´m hooked. But since this summer I´ve started to consider doing PL…maybe not in a traditional way of doing weekly spreads, but maybe going more into a spread a month direction, or maybe quite freely, like when there is something going on, I´ll create a spread and when not, I´ll just let it be :). You know, getting a more relaxed take on PL and not stressing about it.

Have fun scrapping!!
xoxo, Sanna

Layers after layers – The Crafter´s Workshop

Hi there lovelies, time for another The Crafter´s Workshop post and today I´d like to share 3 fall cards in fall tones with you. I´ve also taken some step-by-step photos while creating the cards. Lets start with card no. 1:

First I inked the white card base with Wild Honey Distress Ink and then added some water splatters onto the surface.


I then took the „Vineyard“ 12×12 inch stencil, placed in over the card and added some Barn Door and Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink thru the stencil onto the card.


After that I used my all time favorite Hero Arts stamp Old Letter Writing and stamped with Forest Moss Distress Ink tone. This is how the card looks like:


The sentiments are made with Tim Holtz Hashtag stamp set stamps and the butterflies are older product from my stash. Now onto the second card:


I made this card background using the leftover ink that had stayed on the stencil after inking it for the first card. I first sprayed some water mist onto the inky area and then placed a piece of watercolour paper onto that area and rolled over it with a brayer. That way the end result will be nice and even. So these are actually the same colours as on the previous card, but in much lighter tone due to the water spray.


This way I didn´t waste any ink and could create a nice negative stencil image background for my second card. I wanted to keep the main focus on the pretty background pattern and therefore just added some yarn, a pin, butterflies and a sentiment onto the card. Now let´s move to the third card:


I again used the same Distress Ink tones like on my previous cards. This time I placed the stencil over a piece of white paper and just wiped the red Distress Ink onto the background thru the stencil. The stencil is again the 12×12 inch „Vineyard“ one.


Next I went and wiped some Wild Honey Distress Ink over the stenciled image and then used the 6×6 inch „Vineyard“ stencil to add some light texture paste over the inked area.


Before the paste was totally dry, I quickly added a layer of yellow Distress Glitter over the paste and let it dry. After it was totally dry I dabbed the residue off. It stayed put really well – you just need to work fast. If the paste has time to dry the glitter will not stick.


And this is how the finished card looks like. I didn´t add a sentiment on the cover, as I found this card didn´t really need one. Depending on the occation, one can write the sentiment on to the inside later. Here are some closies of the cards.


I had lots of fun creating these cards and layering the stencils, stamps and media over each other. Now it is your turn – have fun!!!

Be Happy – The Crafter´s Workshop

Hello lovelies!! Today it is again my turn to share an inspirational project at the The Crafter´s Workshop blog. Among other things I like to collect quotes. I pin lots of quotes on my Pinterest board because they are great for journaling and/or title work on layouts and cards. A few days back I stumbled upon a quote about being happy today, tomorrow and everyday. I then amended it a bit and this is the outcome.

I loved using these bold colours and patterns on the page. The white plus sign background is made using the „Positive“ stencil and the little stars on the ring tags were made with the „Random Stars“ 6×6 inch stencil.

Now is your turn to find a quote and use it on a layout/card and do grab a few stencils too and create a fun unique background! Oh, and just in case you end up choosing a happy quote, this song might just get the creative juices going ;-)… Have fun!

Happy scrapping,

I have first used 3 sheets of the Core’dinations heavyweight white cardstock (cut in half) and misted them with spray inks. Then I have either added a plain white texture paste thru the stencils onto the surface or mixed a transparent texture paste with black acrylic paint together and applied that thru the stencils onto the surface. On some cards I´ve added both. On a few cards there is also a layer of transparent texture paste mixed either with loose glitter or I have just applied the paste thru a stencil and then added a layer of Distress Glitter over the wet paste. Other than that I have just embellished the cards and added the sentiment. Super fun and very easy to do!

Needless to say that I really, really like the new line 🙂 ….

Happy stenciling!!!

Maki mania(c) – Page Drafts Release #33

Hey there lovelies!! I am just a liiiitttle bit excited to be sharing the PageDrafts reveal #33 today with you :)!! And this being the first as a DT member makes it extra special.

You need to check out the Page Drafts blog for

  • a full reveal with the lovely designs from my design team colleagues (inspiration guaranteed!!!)
  • tipps and tricks on how to scrap on vacation and what to take with you (incl. a cool video!!)
  • ANNNDDD check out the re-releases number 4, 14 and 24 with some EXTRAS :).

So before you dive into your stash and start scrapping, make sure you check all the above links out and then you are good to go and have some scrappy fun over the weekend!!! Here is a preview of the new release and my take on it. For more see HERE 🙂 :).
