Hello from Lawn Fawn

Hi there!  This is Ann, and my last post for this month again uses that wonderful stamp set by Lawn Fawn - Into the Woods.  This time, I have added some die cuts to my card, and I have to say, they make everything so easy!  I admit, it's not that hard to fussy cut a small image, but when you have almost every image in the set die cut and stamped, it's such fun to arrange your card!

To make this card:
  1. My base layer is a white card, 13.5cm square, with two stitched square layers on top.  
  2. The image is adhered to a white layer 8.6cm square, sponged with Distress Ink Mowed Lawn for the grass hills.  
  3. For my images, I selected the tree stump, the critter and the clouds together with the speech bubble Hello.  The racoon is coloured with Copic markers and the other images stamped with inks in pale blue, brown and peach.  Tree stump and clouds are adhered to the base layer with Tombow Mono Multi but the critter and the speech bubble are popped up with foam dots.
  4. This white layer is mounted onto another square, using paper from the Echo Park 6x6" paper pad, Sunny Days Ahead.
This is a simple card, but sunny and bright, and would make a perfect card to send to someone who needed a cheery word.

Do take a look at this stamp set as it has so many cute images, and can be used for many occasions - and for those who love a bit of Copic colouring, as I do, it has many opportunities to indulge yourself!

"She believed she could" layout tutorial by Narelle

Hey everyone

Today I'm sharing with you a layout that uses the Kaisercraft Shine Bright Collectables Die cuts as the main feature of the layout.  These pre-cut embellishments make putting together a layout super easy because they are ready to go- no need to cut them out, peel them off, sand the edges or anything else! 

This layout is quite a personal one for me-  it documents my weight-loss journey and I thought that the phrases and wording in the "shine bright" pack were a great way to celebrate how far I've come.

  1. Cut the barcode strip from the bottom of the Kaisercraft "Canary" paper and adhere with the chevron side facing horizontally in the centre of the page.
  2. Trim a blackboard journal tag from the "buttercup" paper to use as a tite and adhere to a note die-cut, then affix to the centre top of the page.
  3. Trim 3 black and white photos to 5x7.5cm.  Select 2 die cuts to adhere behind the right and left photos and affix the photos evenly spaced across the page.
  4. Create 3 clusters of die cut embellishments as shown in the close-ups above and adhere below the photos.

Two Hearts - Linda Langes

Hi there - Linda here today with a card using the gorgeous 

I have made a Mother's Day Card but this die is fabulous for all sorts of lovey dovey greetings :)

As you can see I've been having some ink blending fun's how it came together...

1. Cut white card 13cm x 8.5cm and create Chevron background with Clear Scraps Stencil, mini ink blending tool and Distress Inks 
2. Mat this inked panel with navy cardstock.
3. Mount panel on white card base with foam tape.
4. Die cut Double Heart Banner Die from white, red and pink cardstocks and then piece together as in example.
5. Stamp an appropriate sentiment onto the banner and embellish with a scatter of sequins.

Aren't dies amazing:) I think so and Scrapbook Boutique has such a fantastic range you will definitely find a few to add to your stash. I find it hard to resist!

Happy Crafting!
