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.
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!”
Ok. You ever have that paper collection that you are so excited to buy, but then are terrified to use it? It’s just so beautiful and perfect, you fear “messing it up” by actually crafting with the paper you purchased it for? Yeah. The Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante collection was one of those for me.
This paper pad is YEARS old and has been gracefully sitting in my paper closet looking pretty. Every once in awhile I would thumb through it (careful not to bend or crease even the cover) and then sigh happily and put it away again.
This week was the time. I just couldn’t hold back any more. But I promised myself that I would use as much as humanly possible, so I wouldn’t feel like any single page or tag was left behind. I think I did pretty well. I ended up using the collection to make 10 scrapbook layouts and 5 fancy cards.
I love them all so very much, and hope you enjoy these papery treasures too.
You can still find this discontinued collection on places like Amazon, but be warned – it has a hefty price tag. If you’ve got the coin though, trust me when I say, you won’t regret it. This paper collection truly is gorgeous. Link for the paper pad.
I also sell these finished 12×12 pages and greeting cards in my eBay shop, so feel free to check those out as well. They are all looking for a good home and ready to ship!
Which paper collection did you hang on to for (maybe) too long? Did you ever use it, or do you just glance longingly at it every once in awhile as you craft with other paper pads?
I’d love to share in your paper romance too, so please keep in touch and drop me a comment.
