Moments

Good morning how are you? Nothing like kicking off the New Year with some new collection and feeling inspired….. what inspires you?

I am here with this months new and only collection Lily and Moss……

This collection has amazing soft pink and green tones with some stunning floral features.

For me its all about the layers and adding some fussy cutting in between those layers also. So to see how this layout was created you can follow the process video HERE. And download a PDF HERE.

To be able to add things into the layers dont add a lot of tapes or glues to the edges this allows you to add things and it gives it a freer look.

Add banners from the sticker book to add different details to your layers and finish off with a Curios.

Till next time have a creative day.

My Crafty Haven

Hello all! It’s Lisa here today to share some crafty goodness with you all.
I have been working with the Crafternoon Collection and I wanted to scrapbook a layout about my art room, my Crafty Haven. This collection was perfect for my layout.

I have made a double layout, with multiple photos. Something different for me.
I have started with two sheets of the Crafty paper.

I have then cut 1″ strips of the patterned papers and cut these into pieces with 45-degree angle ends. I have then arranged these pieces into chevron strips across my pages.
I have then zig zag stitched up and down each line.

Next I have fussy cut florals, doilies and measuring tape strips to use on my layout. I have layered these over my chevron strips.

I have done this across both pages. I have then matted my photos and adhered them to my page.

I have used cardboard to raise them from my page.

I have then added some florals next to my photos.

For my title I have used stickers from the sticker Book, matted onto card stock, and trimmed to size.
I have cut it in half and adhered it across my two pages.

I have used some of the embroidery hoops from the collection for sentiments.
I have layered these onto doily collectables.

The colours of my art room match the collection! hahaha perfect!

I am loving the pop of colours on the yellow background papers!

I hope that you like what I have created, it was fun to do something I wouldn’t normally do. I’m really happy with how it turned out.

You can find the full instructions for this layout HERE.
Until next time!
Lisa

Boys Will Be Boys

If your anything like me, you have 1000’s of photos but you keep printing more and then you realise I am never going to get rid of the backlog – especially if your doing one photo per layout…. But then this situation has some tricky parts to figure out – how many photos is too many? I dont like doing double layouts? I like the crisp look of one photo on a page…….

Well I have the perfect layout for you!!! Something with a little hidden flip out book that still stays flat in your albums but you can add plenty of photos and journaling while keeping it crisp and clean.

From the inside of the book …. you can customise it to what ever width you need I did it slightly bigger than a 5×7 photo.

This is where the fun beings – adding all your photos and journaling I like to have all my photos touching each other it makes it look like one big photo and it stops that pesky trapped space.

Now to add some mixed media to the layout dont be afraid to stamp over the top of the die cut… I dont use a block for my stamp which allows the stamp to have less of an edge.

Now I just a brush to add my heavy ink….. it allows more control and less waste.
