"Love you to the moon" Scrapbook layout + process video by Louise

 Hi Crafters
Here to share a new Scrapbook layout with you.

"Love you to the moon"



This page started as a 9x12 but as it developed I added the black 12x12 background.

In the Scrapbook Boutique store you will find some gorgeous paper collections.
I love this one ...


So of course, I needed to make a boys layout.
I also did a little fussy cutting and embellished with a cute little paper fan.


I've kept the background fairly simple with lots of colour splatters using the Vicki Boutin Water colours.

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

Hello My Friend

Ann here today with a happy little hello for a friend!

I love stamps that virtually make the card for you (for those times when you really don't have enough time!)  and today's card uses just such a one!



The feature stamp is by Stampendous - it is called Sunny Hello.

Towards the top of a white panel cut to 10 x 13cm I stamped the image in Versamark, heat embossed it in white, and then sponged over the panel in various colours of Distress Oxide ink.

I had a kitty already coloured and cut out from the stamp set Furever Friends by MFT, and I have a friend who loves cats, so this card will be going to her.   I didn't leave a border around the image, so instead of having ugly whiskers, I stamped the image directly on the card, and popped up my cut out kitty (minus the whiskers) directly over the stamp.  Voila - whiskers are back!

That is all there is to this card - I hope you like it!

"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...
