Music, Dance, Art

There’s nothing quite as inspiring as getting your hands on a new paper collection. I love the excitement of flipping through the new paper pad and being delighted at each new turn of the page.

My craft table was overflowing with the new Passion collection by Stamperia last week. It’s all about dance, music, and art. The colors are fabulous and the illustrations just melted my heart.

It was so easy to make gorgeous premade scrapbook pages and I felt like I just burned through the entire pack before I knew it.

Cellos and ballerinas – what could be more lovely?! I did a lot of fussy cutting on these layouts too, so pop up elements on the page and tuck photo mats underneath.

I also used LOTS of beautiful Prima Marketing flowers, such as the Sugar Cookie flowers below to coordinate with the colors in the collection.

You can find all my handmade scrapbook pages in my eBay shop this week. Each one is made with love and ready for your favorite artistic photos!

One Layout Sketch – 5+ Possibilities!

I love a good layout sketch idea. Even better – when one is versatile and can be used over and over again with different papers and embellishments.

BONUS: a sketch that lets me use lots of the random goodies I’ve been hoarding for years!

This week’s YouTube tutorial is just that! I’ll show you 5 ways to use this simple, yet charmingly adorable, scrapbook layout.

I’ll also show you a few different ways to make your stencil and some tips for crafting with heavier items.

It’s time to dig out all those random letters, buttons, brads, sequins, or flowers and get to craftin’!

I used dozens of fabulous Prima Marketing Fruit Paradise flowers for the layout above. I just love these darling flowers.

The layout above was made using lots of darling washi tape! I’m always excited to use washi tape, since I love using stickers, and it’s basically a giant sticker roll. 🙂

This layout idea even works with just cardstock – don’t have any extra embellishments lying around (ok, you know you do)? Doesn’t matter! Find a fun, happy print and die cut your large shape for a pop of happiness!

Hope you have lots of fun with this sketch idea. Be sure to check out my eBay shop for all these handmade scrapbook pages too and follow me on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube for all things crafty!

Handmade Club October Printable Scrapbook Pages

I’m so proud to be part of the Shabby Art Boutique Handmade Club’s team! The October 2020 kit has so many fabulous shabby chic Christmas printables, and I incorporated them into my 12×12 scrapbook layouts this week.

This Vintage style is so much fun to work with. I added lots of Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink and Diamond Stickles throughout to really bring all the fussy cut images to life.

I also made a couple darling retro Christmas cards. What a fun week!

Hope these pretty projects have inspired you today. You can find these and lots more handmade goodies in my eBay shop too, so please stop by and say “hi!”

Gothic Halloween Torn Junk Journal

I’m so eerily excited at the way this junk journal turned out!

I started with the Gothic Halloween digital junk journal kit from Kelly’s Crafts by Kelly for this lovely project. All images were printed onto 65lb Neenah cardstock.

I wanted to create an old, gothic feeling journal, so I decided to tear all my pages (including the main book pages that I bound together with seam binding) instead of cutting them with a paper trimmer.

All edges have been heavily inked with both Vintage Photo and Black Soot Distress Ink.

I loved the illustrations so much that it was easy to let them be the star, so I added only a few embellishments here and there. I did make my own resin pieces for this book, however, and I think they really added a nice touch. I have a YouTube video all about that process too, if you’d like to see just how easy they are to make:

Hope you enjoyed this flip-through blog journey with me today. May it inspire your creativity this week. Please let me know what you think and follow me on Facebook and Instagram for daily crafty goodness!

I also have hundreds of handmade journals, premade scrapbook pages, and greeting cards in my Bella Stitchery eBay shop!

Thanks so much, and keep in touch, my crafty friends! xoxo

Lavender Flower Market Scrapbook Layout

I’m new on the design team for Shabby Art Boutique and this is my very first project using the August 2020 Field of Flowers printable kit.

I had so much fun fussy cutting lots of shabby chic details, from this adorable little girl to lots of 3D “flying” butterflies.

Pretty details.

I added more dimension with a painted chipboard fence by Scrapaholics.

I love the way the printables popped against white cardstock and some watercolor splatter.

You can purchase this premade layout from my eBay shop too! Just add your favorite photo, and then put it in your album or a shadowbox!

Thanks so much for crafting with me today and happy scrapbooking! xoxo

Pretty Mosaic

s-l500

We all view the world through a different lens, and may have very strong feelings about what’s happening in it today. However, I think one thing unites us: Prima Marketing. I think we can all agree that they make the most AMAZING goodies!

This week, I worked with the Pretty Mosaic collection. What an absolute pleasure!

s-l500 (1)

The paper reminds me of those old historic mansions, with crumbling tiles and high ceilings. I felt like I should be wearing an organza gown of some sort and be posing on ancient stairs. It’s so very romantic and cozy.

Bo Bunny Botanical Journal Cottage Scrapbook Layout

70C38A61-BA70-460C-B9F5-1A379BD3BB9B

This scrapbook page really encompasses so much of what I love about paper crafting – die cuts, chipboard, flowers, paint, lace… I mean, seriously.

I used the Bo Bunny Botanical Journal collection for this happy, cottage style layout and embellished it with lots of shabby chic goodies. One of my favorite things on this page is the Roman clock chipboard piece by Scrapaholics. I love the way it looks when painted!

The Lavender Frost fabric flowers from Prima Marketing make this page feel so cottage cozy!

I found these printables on Pinterest for the butterflies in my page, if you’d like to print them too. I printed them at a 5×7 inch size to get the butterflies you see here:

DIY Custom Paint Mixing with Lindy’s Gang Magicals!

7AC3D9A6-4E7F-4A4C-88AD-DB66BB7753A2

I love Lindy’s Gang Magicals for so many reasons – one of which is their versatility. When mixed with some white gesso, it’s so super easy to make custom paint colors!
