Busby West Community Scrapbooking Day

Busby West Community Scrapbooking Day. We had a wonderful day on Sunday, last with the ladies from Busby West school community. My good friend Rhonda Laine (who is a Krafty Owlz Team Member) used it for her business launch. I will bring you some more photos on Thursday. Here is one photo of some of the ladies, working, thinking etc.

Rhonda is on the left side of the photo and is taking photos also. Rhonda gave a bit of a talk to start with and then we jumped in to do the layout. Now the inspiration for the layout is similar to one I did a short while ago:

The ladies were provided with a basic kit of 12″ x 12″ Very Vanilla Card, one 3″ x 12″ strip of Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper (available from 1st June 2017), a 14″ piece of 1/4″ Copper Trim and extra pieces of card stock to matt their photos and do some journaling or to stamp an embellishment piece. Here are some of the layouts:

A year 4 student who had never scrapbooked before.

This one was created by a year 9 student who had never scrapbooked before. I just love how she became creative with her fingers and ink as well as her use of the stamps.

Last layout for today’s shares

Freshly Brewed Projects Eastern Palace Suite

Freshly Brewed Projects Eastern Palace Suite. Welcome to another Blog Hop with the Latte Girls and this week we’re focusing on Freshly Brewed Projects Eastern Palace Suite. Now make sure you visit the other blogs in the hop to see their wonderful inspiration:

Here are my projects for this week’s hop:

This first one utilises our Clear Tiny Treat Boxes which are about a 2″ cube and you can fill with lots of tiny treats such as sweets, ribbons, embellishments, earrings etc.

Now the stickers in the Eastern Palace Suite are Gold however, here I decided to adhere them to the inside of the box which makes them look Silver on the outside.

Here’s another view of the box showing the belly band using Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper. I also sued Silver Foil on the top embellishment piece and adhered a sticker to some Window Sheet so I could make it look silver on top.

Here is what the suite looks like and until 31st May, you can choose 1 of the bundles below and receive some FREE product too, all at a great price which won’t be repeated:

Of course you need a card to give with your gift:

I went back to Gold for the card – guess I goofed 🙂 Anyway again some Eastern Palace DSP with Gold Ribbon and Gold Embossing using a sentiment and two images from the stamp set.

Rustic Country Livin’

Rustic Country Livin’ I decided I had shared lots of feminine cards recently so thought I’d do a masculine themed one instead today. This stamp set and technique could be used for any occasion for a man. You can leave it fairly plain or embellish it with more papers, Linen Thread, Baker’s Twine etc. I love this stamp set for cards as it’s quite versatile. The guitar image in the set is great for the music buffs and the boots can be used for dancing of any type and can be done up in any colour you like.

The sentiment comes from a NEW stamp set which will be available in the 2017 – 2018 Annual Catalogue and it’s called Birthday Greetings. It’s a great set suitable for many age groups, so when it’s available consider ordering it.

Stampin’ Up!’s Watercolor Pencils are fantastic for giving the same image many different looks. With this truck I have used Real Red as often you see old farm trucks which were once red. If you colour lightly and randomly you can create an image which looks a bit tattered and worn. Add Early Espresso on the back to make it look like a home made piece to hold all the farm gear in on the back and you’re starting to get the idea of a well used truck. I’ve used a Blender Pen with all colours.

Colours used:

  • Truck Body – Real Red
  • Back tray – Early Espresso
  • Tyres & shadows – Basic Black
  • Headliughts – Daffodil Delight
  • Chrome bits – Pumpkin Pie
  • Grass – Old Olive

Sponge Dauber Colouring Dies

Sponge Dauber Colouring Dies This is a fun technique which will add depth and great effect to your cards and is just another way to use your dies. Watch the video to find out more:

My apologies if there was an annoying sound in the background. When I shot this video it was an extremely hot day and I had a fan going without realising the video would pick up the sound. Anyway I hope you enjoyed the video and were able to see and hear the instructions clearly enough for you to give this technique a try.
Now this suite is on the Retirement List and is available until 31st May 2017 or while stocks last. If you click on Retirement List, there is a link which will take you straight to the products being retired and you can shop. There’s also a huge number of discounted products in the Clearance Rack, so make sure you check those out, too while you’re there.
Here’s a closer look at the card:
You can see where I have used the Sponge Daubers to colour the thinlit die. Try this technique with other dies. You’ll be amazed at the possibilities.

WWYS #115 Beautiful You

WWYS #115 Beautiful You I absolutely love this stamp set and I’m so pleased the What Will You Stamp team have decided to choose this set for their challenge.

Make sure you pop on over to see all the inspiration shared by the design team and of course the other entries in the challenge for WWYS #115 Beautiful You. Here’s my card:

Now, I have been a bit remiss and not sent my friend who is battling Ovarian Cancer, a card for over  a week and I know she’s battling with the chemo and all the side effects it entails, so this card is for her. I couldn’t do a brightly coloured hat, which she wears, so did the next best thing with some paper piecing using Cupcakes & Carousels DSP stack .

Here’s a bit of a closer look at the stamping and paper piecing. I just love all the different techniques and effects you can get by using this stamp set. I’ve stamped one of the ‘wash’ images in Peekaboo Peach and added the sentiment in Basic Black Archival ink.

Paper Piecing Technique Used

Paper piecing is a great technique to use with all your little scraps of card or D.S.P., so keep it in mind as a technique. Make sure you use your Snips and move the paper not your snip for easier cutting.

I also used the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP paper to decorate inside the card and I banner cut a piece for the outside of the envelope. After all, you can’t have a boring inside card and envelope when you’re trying to cheer someone up.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.

Erasing Part of a Stamped Image

Erasing Part of a Stamped Image. This video will show you how to ink up a stamped image and erase part of the colour using a Blender Pen and replacing the erased colour with another colour. You could do this on almost any card but it works best on Watercolor Paper of Shimmery White Card. Watch how easy it is.

Don’t miss any more of my technique videos
Thanks so much for supporting me by subscribing.
Next week I will be doing a series on the So In Love Suite from the Occasions Catalogue. It’s in the retirement list but is a must have for those who make lots of invitations of all types.
So did you like that technique? It’s something a little different you can try. You could also use it on Watercolor Paper.
You can certainly see the difference in the image in this close up view of it. Try this technique on normal card stock, just be careful not to overwork the card as it may start to break down and pill. You could stamp an image and then stamp again and die cut and mount on Stampin’ Dimensionals for added effect. This technique would work really well if you wanted to add yellows, reds or oranges to the centres of flowers.
Have a try of it and I’d love to see your samples.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.

Remember, your creativeness is only limited by your imagination. Keep smiling and until next we share…
