Good morning! I am not a chronological scrapbooker. I scrapbook whatever I am inspired to, whenever I am inspired to, so I may scrapbook a photo from when our boys were little or from a couple of years ago when one of them graduated from high school. I find that I am much happier with my creations when I am inspired to create something. The beautiful colors from the Rusty Weather paper inspired me for this layout.
To create this layout: Step 1 – Trim our papers to the following sizes: 1 at 12″x12″, 1 at 12″x11″, 1 at 12″x7″ and 1 at 12″x6″ and a photo mat. Distress all edges.
Step 2 – Die cut, ink and assemble 10 flowers and 4 leaves. I used florals 6, 8, 9, 1, 2, and 4.
Good morning everyone! Our family loves to go sledding in the winter – it is a great family outing! I found these photos of my husband doing a sneak attack on our son Cody and thought they were too funny to not scrapbook!
To create this layout: Step 1 – distress the edges of your background paper (I used Mystical Winter paper) Step 2 – mat your photos and distress the edges of photo mat. Adhere using cardboard or 3d adhesive
Step 3 – add a chipboard or paper border Step 4 – die cut 23 fitted hexagons then ink and distress the edges and adhere to paper
Good morning! Almost every winter we as a family go sledding and we have a great day!
To create this layout: Step 1 – cover the background paper with clear gesso (I used a paper from the Mystical Winter Collection) Step 2 – stamp the image from the Frosty Patterns at the top, bottom and side
Step 3 – use texture paste and a stencil from the Pattern Stencil Pack along the one side and allow to dry Step 4 – Die cut, ink and assemble 14 – 15 flowers (I used florals 1, 2, 3, 4,) Step 5 – die cut 2 cubic background out of coordinating cardstock. Highlight the word Winter by using snowflake paste or glitter Step 6 – die cut 2 Diagonal Stitched Fishtails
Step 7 – mat your photo and assemble the photo area as shown Step 8 – using some frayed cheese cloth run a piece from the top to the bottom on the one side and one from side to side in the middle
Karen here today sharing some FuN Christmas cards. I recently purchased this beautiful pack of blue and purple holiday paper and decided to challenge myself to create using *almost* every designer here at Elizabeth Craft Designs. The products are all so lovely, and I wanted to play with many of the styles.
This first card features a FuN font stamp from Sue Smith Creative Designs. This one is from the Snow Stamps, but there are many beautiful options. I added a snowflake from A Way with Words, Flourished Christmas Mini Dies and covered it with 101mm Double Sided Adhesive (before cutting) and added some Silver Silk Microfine Glitter. I used a Stitched Rounded Rectangle to cut the stamp out.
How pretty is that AMAZING new Washi tape from Ilse and Charlene (Artzy Scenery Washi Tape)!!? In this card, I diecut the ends of those rectangles using the Junk Journal Extras Dies. I also used the Florals 4 dies designed by Anita, the Joyful Wishes Sentiments Stamps, the Stitched Circles Dies and White Craft Drops.
Oh, how I do love a glitter covered Santa Claus (die set designed by Joset)! This one is covered with Speckled Indigo and Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter (applied with the 101mm Double Sided Adhesive). His face is colored with E000, E00, R21 Copics and his feet and hands are colored with W7 Copic. The sentiment is again from the Joyful Wishes set.
That glitter is gorgeous! And serendipity, it matches my nail polish!
I just love the beautiful font dies from Suzanne Cannon in the A Way with Words collection. This one is Merry Christmas, Small Die. It is die cut with a Stitched Rounded Square Die. The card also uses the Fitted Fishtails dies.
And FINALLY, I used the adorable snowman from Planner Essentials 34 – Christmas Figures, designed by Esther Glas. He is so sweet and comes with the fun sleigh rides ticket (and many other dies). I also used the Stitched Circles dies on this card.
Well, I may have gone a bit overboard…but I just love all of these collections of dies. They are just so versatile and fun!
