Happy Birthday with Angela

Hello everyone! :) Angela here with a quick card using my embossing powders. I just love the way the powder melts on  the paper.  Embossing can be difficult if you hold the heat gun too close to the paper it can burn and warp the paper.  My trick is to let the heat gun warm up for a minute or so and then alternate the heat on the back of the paper and front evenly.  Works for me ♥

* Trim neenah white card stock 11.5 cm x 29cm and fold in half
*Die cut using the largest MFT in & out stax rectangle with neenah
*swipe with embossing buddy to remove any static 
* Using versamark ink up 7 dots foliage and stamp top middle of cardstock and leave a little gap between each one.
* cover with silver embossing powder and heat set
* let cool for a minute.
*wipe again with embossing buddy
* ink up 7 dots stamp again using versamark and stamp in alternating gaps to fill in spaces.
* cover with Gold embossing powder and heat set
* Die cut small circle and stamp sentiment using versa fine black onyx. 
*adhere over embossing with pop dots
*adhere card to base card.

Double page Scrapbook Layout by Louise - "Happy Happy Birthday"

 Hi Crafters

Louise with you today sharing a new scrapbook layout.

"Happy Happy Birthday"

With thanks to receiving some Feedback on my YouTube channel, I'm going to create more Multi-photo layouts.
So I thought I would combine today's share with something I haven't done for a while.

A double page layout.

While perusing photos and collections in my stash, I found this Kaisercraft "Party Time" Collection.

I had an idea in mind for this page so I started by creating a sketch to ensure it ended like the idea in my head!

I have of course used my favourite medium - "Tim Holtz Distress Crayons"

You can hear all about my thought process in this video.

Thanks for visiting.
