Part 2 - Collobration with Therese & Louise - Scrapbook Layout "Party" - Go Wild with Copics

 Hi Crafters

Today is Part 2 of the Louise & Therese collabration.

Therese has kindly coloured these gorgeous "Neat n Tangled" wild animals.



Therese has kindly made a lovely video sharing her technique ...





Then I have completed a Scraplbook Layout using the coloured animals as embellishments.

"Party"


What fun I have had creating a lovely Birthday layout.
I started by creating a photo collage and using that as my story.



I wanted this page to be quite bright and fun, so I've used primarily blue, green and orange colours.


Coming up with a title for the page was the most difficult part of the layout.
I ended up cutting some white cardstock using the Silhouette Cameo and colouring with Distress Crayons.


You can find all of these products at

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



Thanks for visiting.

Just Because


Hi there, it's Ann here with another take on my new stamp set by Concord & 9th, Just Because.  I've linked the stamp set here, to let you see what it includes, as those sketchy images may be overlooked with so many beautiful leaves and flowers to catch your eye.



I used those graphic images to create a background panel, leaving just the bold sentiment to be the feature.


Those little flowers look sweet matched with the tiny leaves, and the script version of Because works beautifully with them.

The background panel was cut using a stitched rectangle, 10 x 13cm, (US sizing) so I trimmed my top folding black card to suit at 10.7 x  14cm.  The small rectangle sentiment is white card cut to 5.3 x 8.4cm matted over black card with a 2mm border.

Thank you so much for visiting today!

We've Moved Notecards - Video and cards with Linda

Hi there. Hope you're having a fabulous start to April.

I was so excited when I saw Lawn Fawn's new Happy Village stamp set
as I knew it would be perfect for my Change of Address notecards.

Yes we've just become empty nesters 
and after 21 years in our current home it's time for a sea change - yaaaay!
I wasn't sure if my dream would ever come true so I'm beyond excited I can tell you :-))

It was pure delight to create these sweet notecards to be sent to family and friends...


I created 20 notecards in all and if you'd like to see the production process please enjoy the video below or in HD on YouTube...


Lovely to see you at the Scrapbook Boutique blog today. 
Hope you have some time to do something crafty today.
Bye for now...

Happy Easter

Hello happy Easter to you and were you caught in any April fool pranks? I nearly was but I cottoned quickly to my friend in time.
Thanks for popping in today I am sharing a card that I've made for my mum's stash. Mum wanted a nice elegant design with no sentiments that could be used for any occasion.  I have used the Stampedous arabesque mandala cling stamp and used a few different colour embossing powders.  It is a beautiful elegant stamp that has enough intricate designs wit in to make it simple yet classy (brief ticked)
I have added a little strip of glitter paper to add a little interest too as it was a little too simple for my liking and finished off with an enamel dot.  I just love watching silver embossing powder melt, more than any other powder.  Of all the colours the gold and silver are my favs.   if you are lucky enough to have a MISTI you can make a few in one go (Angela's fav type of card!)








PRODUCTS USED;


* trim 5 Neenah white cardstock 10cm x 28cm and fold in half. This is your base card.
* trim 5 Neenah white cardstock 9 cm x 14cm 
* place Stampendous Arabesque cling stamp on your misti and ink up with versa fine
* arrange stamp so it is a little off the page
*Stamp the 5 pieces of cardstock and set aside ( the versa mark will stay wet enough for embossing powder to stick)
*Cover completely with embossing powder, Tap off excess and heat emboss
* Just heat up heat gun off to the side for a minute or so so it doesn't warp your paper
*Adhere glitter paper and adhere to base card
*finish off with enamel dots

"Us" Mixed media scrapbook page + process video by Louise

 Hi Crafters


To share a new scrapbook layout - "Us"


Lately my creative mojo has gone missing!!!
So when it comes to creating I'm struggling.
To complete this page, I've tried going back to some old techniques.



Firstly paste through a stencil.
I just adore this Trodat leaf stencil.



Then I added some of my "go to" colour - teal!
I've used acrylic paint and added lots of water, allowing the paint to run through the paste and down the page.


The background papers come from the fabulous DCWV "Wild and Fancy" collection.
Once I'd finished with the mixed media elements, I wanted to tidy it all up and bring it together.
So I hand stitched around the inner paper square.



To finish I've added some flowers and leaves.
The title I cut using the Cameo and gave it a coat of black gesso, followed by a little sprinkle of glitter.


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




Thanks for visiting.
