"Mayor's Ball" Scrapbook Layout + process video by Louise

 Hi Crafters

Louise on the blog today.
I'm sure your getting tired of "Boy" themed layouts so I thought I'd change it up a bit with a more feminine page featuring me.

"Mayor's Ball"


This one is all about flowers and the inspiration came from the paper collection ...



I've created my own striped background using the Vicki Boutin water colour set.



I fussy cut some flowers from the patterned papers and combined them with Prima Flowers to complete the page.




Here is the process video if you'd like to watch .



Thanks for visiting.

Hello Princess

Hello friends!  My card today is a fantasy card, suitable for a young girl, and it was such a lot of fun to make!


The images from the stamp set Magical Day by Reverse Confetti, were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black, coloured with Copics and then fussy cut out.

I covered the front of a regular A2 card with paper from the MFT Graphic Grid paper pad - pastel.

My front panel is 13cm in width, and 10cm in length, to ensure there is enough to go behind my separate bottom section which is popped up.

I then created the background by spongeing the sky with a pale blue ink (Summer Sky by Memento) after I masked off a couple of clouds.

I drew some wavy lines to mask the spongeing for the hills, and then cut the bottom section to the desired size (4.5cm on the right edge and 5cm on the left edge). The top piece was then glued in place, leaving enough card to fit behind the popped up mechanism - about 6.5cm on both sides.

I positioned the princess where I wanted her to be, and then with the slider track die in hand, I decided where the dragon should go.  I then cut out the track.  Now here is a 'mistake' I made - I didn't realise how obvious the background paper would be when the track was cut out.  On reflection, I thought I could get away with it, as it does look a little like a road, but my next card would continue the top panel to the bottom of the card, and a separate extra piece would be used for the slider.

As this card is for a young child, I avoided using coins or metal of any sort, for the 'penny' behind the dragon - instead I glued together several pieces of card punched with a 3/4" circle punch which eventually became strong enough to replace a coin.  This is placed at the back of the track, with narrow rectangles of foam adhered to the centre of the circle - one on top of the other for clearance, causing it to run in a neat way along the track.  The dragon is then adhered to the foam.

Behind this section, it is necessary to use foam pieces to ensure clearance for the mechanism to run freely - I used two layers of foam but did not place then too close to the track.

My apologies for the long-winded explanation, but it was a learning curve for me, so I hope I've made it a little easier for you to try this interactive element.  Of course, you could simply adhere the images directly to the card!

Thank you so much for visiting today, and I wish you happy crafting!

Ice-Cream Gift Tags

Hi there! Happy Hump-Day - I hope you're having a good week :-)

It's Linda here with you today to share some sweet little tags in the shape of Ice-Creams. 
I have used the cute new Lawn Fawn "I Scream You Scream" Dies to create my tags.

Here they are all standing in a row...


The process is simple - first of all you cut out all the pieces you will need from scrap cardstock...


Then you adhere everything together.

I wanted my tags to open so you could write inside them like a card so I created backs for my tags, from white cardstock. The photo below shows the back piece scored and with glue applied above the score line so the two pieces can be adhered together...


Voila...

It's fun to sift through your stamp sets and see which sentiments will fit on or across the tags too.


They really are so very sweet, pun intended :) 
I think I'll send them to my 10-year-old niece who can use them on presents for her friends.

Thanks for joining us today on the Scrapbook Boutique blog.
Bye for now...

"# Totally" Scrapbook Layout + process video by Louise

 Hi Crafters

Louise with you today.
I hope you enjoy this new layout - a big change from my usual "boy" style".

"# Totally"



I adore this collection from Kaisercraft and decided that even though I was scrapping a photo of Master Z, I wanted to make a more "pretty" layout - one that I could keep as a memory for myself.


In this case, it's the answers to the Mothers Day interview (which turned up some very interesting results ...)





You can find all of these products in store - see the link below.


Here is the process video if you'd like to watch .

You're Precious

Hello dear friends!  It's Ann here with another Gorjuss Girl (hope you're not sick of them yet!) .

This little cutie (and only $4.99 from Scrapbook Boutique shop) is entitled Waiting.  I've coloured her with Copics, fussy cut her out and popped her up over a die cut background.  Beneath the die cut  (one of 3 by Tim Holtz in his Mixed Media 3 set) is paper from MFT Graphic Grid Pastels range.   From my stash I found some coordinating washi tape and added Ranger enamel drops in purple.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts Layering Fuchsia stamp set. 



Thanks so much for visiting, and I do hope you find time to enjoy some special crafting time!


Products available from Scrapbook Boutique:

Embellishments:  Ranger enamel dots, purple
Paper:  MFT Graphic Grid pastels paper pad

A Stampendous Rainbow Birthday Card

Hi there! Happy Friday peeps!
It's Linda here today with some rainbow goodness for you - 
I can never resist a Distress Ink Rainbow and knew it would work well 
with this sweet stamp from Stampendous - do you agree?


1. Cut card front from Strathmore Bristol Smooth Watercolour Card 
2. Wipe over with the anti-static powder tool and stamp 'Cling Candle Wish' image in Versamark Ink
3. Sprinkle on Nuvo Classic Gold embossing powder and melt with heat tool
4. Choose your rainbow of Distress Inks - I've used Picked Raspberry/Festive Berries/Spiced Marmalade/Mustard Seed/Twisted Citron/Mermaid Lagoon/Seedless Preserves
5. Spray card front with a mini mister so it's slightly damp
6. Smoosh the first DI colour onto an acrylic block and pick up with a wet brush before applying it to your card
7. Continue adding your rainbow of colours, spritzing again with the mini mister when the card dries out
8. Put aside and allow to dry
9. Cover your card base with gold glittered cardstock and adhere watercoloured piece on top with craft foam for dimension
10. Embellish with gold star sequins.


I hope you have a wonderful weekend on the way -
- perhaps with some crafty time for you to enjoy :-)

See you again soon...
