Iris wanted to showcase the beauty of the rub-ons so she started with a white card stock and misted it with bright tones of yellow and pink. She then placed a stencil on top of the paper and smeared on a thick coat of gesso and glass bead gels. The rub-ons were then added to the paper, overlapping on the areas with gesso and glass bead gels. You can actually see the texture underneath some areas of the rub-ons.
Fancy Pants chipboard pieces, flocked hearts, and buttons easily add dimension and whimsy to the design of the layout.
The Country Boutique collection from Fancy Pants has an elegant colour palette which makes it perfect for scrapping your wedding photos. Sue has started an 8 1/2 x 11 inch scrapbook for her wedding photos and every now and again, she adds another page or two. Sue has used the die-cuts in the collection to embellish her page and kept the design fairly simple but elegant. Touches of bling and sequins and beads added a little glamour to the page.
Sue loved the vintage woodgrain patterned papers in the Country Boutique collection and for this layout, she used one for her background. Sue has added in a little silver glitter paper from American Crafts to add a little 'pop' to her page. To create the cute heart banner, Sue cut out the heart images from the Country Boutique paper and stitched them to the page. Sue then added sequins and beads to create a little glamour.
We have some amazing layouts from Jess Mutty. Jess is a stay at home mom living near Boston with her husband, and kids Owen (2.5) and Lily (7 weeks). For this first layout, Jess combined papers from Country Boutique and Time for Spring for this scraplift of Pocket Chick Piradee Talvanna. Her page is a more masculine take. She stitched each banner, added an accordion flower, and used bits and pieces of chipboard from other lines.
Sweet Face - The die-cut banners from this line were just begging to be hung against the trendy wood patterned paper. Jess cut the Polaroid frames with the Silhouette and embellished the pennants with coordinating neutral embellishments. Her favourite detail is the pair of butterflies and their stitched flight trails at the bottom.
This gorgeous mini album was created by Kim Watson using the Off to School collection. Kim layered some of the goodies from the ‘Design Elements’ pack and ‘Chipboard Element’ sheet to embellish the front cover. We love how Kim included photos of her children and also some of their drawings. What a sweet album. Thanks Kim for the wonderful inspiration.
