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!
Shabby Art Boutique has delivered a fabulous monthly printable kit for their Handmade Club once again!
Although I don’t cook or bake (if it were up to me, the kitchen would be an extension of my craft room….and has been in the past – lol), I had so much fun working with these delicious images.
I think my favorite images are the apple pie goodies, although there are also fig pies, strawberry cupcakes and cakes, macarons, and lots more. I had to ask my husband to bake something when I was done, as I’m pretty sure I was drooling.
If you like fussy cutting, you’re going to love this monthly kit! Check out my YouTube video too, on tips and techniques for using and decorating your printables (along with how to make the painted backgrounds on my 12×12 layouts):
I have all my new layouts available now in my eBay shop. Have some family baking photos? Holiday get-togethers? Time with Grandma? This layouts are perfect for so many “sweet” occasions. 🙂
A touch of Glossy Accents really adds pop and dimension when working with printables. I added some to my cake, apples, strawberry centers, and frosting. It dries super shiny and almost embossed looking.
This was my first time working with honeycomb patchwork paper too, and I really love the look! I think they added a nice farm country touch.
My sister gave me a package of foil transfer from Prima Marketing, and it’s been in my drawer for about…a year. I just didn’t know what it was or how to use it.
Cut to – I had a custom request for some Pink Floyd scrapbook pages. I knew I would have to make my own background papers for something like this, and -BAM!- the package of foil was opened.
I have to say, it’s pretty magical. And SUUUUUUUUUUUUPER easy to use.
For my layouts, I decided to use spray adhesive and stencils. I sprayed the adhesive through the stencil onto my card stock and when it was *almost* dry, stuck the foil paper (shiny side up) onto it (I also gave it a hardy rub, just in case) and… instant glam!
I have used several packs since. They work so well on black paper, and I can’t seem to get such magnificent color and shine with any other embellishment. You can purchase some here, if you want to give it a go. Prima Marketing carries them in several shades, but this is the package I used for these pages.
Try ’em out, and let me know how they worked! I would love to see pictures of your finished projects! Happy crafting, and shine on!
Ok. This is my new favorite way to scrapbook. I remember watching several YouTube videos about Lindy’s Gang shakers and I thinking, “THAT is how all these cool mixed media pages look like that. Holy smokes.” (that was my actual interior dialogue).
I bought this ten pack on Amazon last week to try them out:
And my life has changed forever.
Here are some more pages I made this week using the shakers and just some water spray…
Literally just shake them onto your paper and spray with water. I didn’t even need a paintbrush.
For the bright purple color in the first layout, I also added Dylusions ink sprays to make the color bolder. I found that if the paper was wet enough, they blended really well with the powder pinks from Lindy’s Gang.
Hope these pages inspire you to get messy! Please let me know if you’d like a video tutorial as well. I’m super excited about my new-found artistry!
