"Tinkerbell" layout tutorial by Narelle

Hi Everyone-  
Narelle here with a new layout tutorial using the gorgeous "Bo Bunny- Enchanted Garden" range.  If you have a little girl in your life who loves fairies then this range will be perfecting for creating layouts!!

  1. Use "Fantasy" as the base paper.
  2. Trim "Romance" to 29x29cm and adhere in the centre of the base paper.
  3. Tear a strip approx 7cm off the edge of the "magic" paper and adhere the larger remaining piece on the left side of the layout, starting on the edge of the green "romance" paper so that there is a cream border all the way round the layout.
  4. Tear the "Fairies" paper in half and adhere on the left side of the layout in the same manner as the previous piece.
  5. Adhere the cobblestone piece from the "noteworthy" pack approx one third of the way up from the base of the layout.
  6. Distress or sand the edges of the photos and adhere on the layout, slightly overlapping each other and the cobblestone piece.
  7. Add the "Fairy crossing" sign fro the noteworthy pack using foam tape to raise it off the page, and a gnome from the pack also using foam tape.
  8. Add some Jewels for embellishment to the toadstools, and a string underneath one of the photos.
  9. Using the alphabet stickers from the alpha sheet in the kit, add a title to your layout.

Julie Nutting Chiara Doll Tag

Hi there:)
Linda here today having heaps of fun playing with a Julie Nutting Doll Stamp.
These sweet dolls are so darn cute and I had a blast creating a Xmas Tag first up.

Here are a few step by step pics for you...

Step 1 - Have some mixed media fun on the tag base using a mask, texture paste and mists.

Below is a close up of the texture once the tag is dry -

Step 2 - use your favourite stamps to add further details to the background

Step 3 - add strips of dry wall tape for added texture

Step 4 - using an embossing dauber and powder add gorgeous details around the tag edge

Step 5 - stamp doll on a blank tag and watercolour skin sections with distress ink and aqua brush
Stamp doll onto chosen patterned papers for paper piecing of hair and clothes

Step 6 - Fussy cutting

The finished product ...

Add finishing details with stamps, sequins and twine.

Happy Crafting:)

Congrats on your Bundle of Joy with Angela

Hello there!! Angela here!!
 I haven't really made too many bubba cards.   I seem  have a run on them at the moment.
I wanted to make something a little different and non gender specific so I could have it on hand without having to specifically make a card once bubba was born.
I also wanted to try a different take on the stencil/paste fad at the moment.  Really happy with the results too!  

* Trim SBB white cardstock 29cm x 10 cm and fold in half portrait.

* Trim another SBB white 14.5 cm x 10 and then place Studio 490 Polka Dot stencil over the top.

* Spread Jo Sonja textured paste liberally over the stencil and cover completely.

* Gently lift the stencil

* Sprinkle Diamond Dust over the paste, whilst it is still wet.

* Dust off excess and set aside to dry

* Wash Stencil immediately (believe me, this step is IMPORTANT!!)

* Emboss with Zing Silver Flourishes sentiment on vellum

*Wrap around card, when dry.

*Adhere to base card.
