Stacey loved everything about the On Trend collection. She loved the bold colours and prints and especially the gorgeous Chipboard pieces. She pulled the royal blue and magenta colours out of the papers and splashed about with some misting. The photo always being her focus, she layered a photo mat for her sweet Master 5 to sit on.
Crate Paper remains to be one of Iris' top favorites. She loves the whimsical theme and the colourful and striking elements of their collections. In this layout, Iris used elements from the Ephemera pack and the Mini-Album pack. She cut-out the lens area of the camera die-cut and slid under a photo of her daughter. A perfect snapshot!
Iris created for us a 2nd layout using the same Maggie Holmes Collection. Again she took elements from the Ephemera Pack and the Mini-Album pack. The small camera patterns were hand-cut from patterned paper and was used as embellishments.
DIY Shop is a collection of vintage inspired papers that are so beautifully versatile you can use it for any tye of project - male, female, seasonal etc. The collection has the usual signature Crate Paper items scrappers and card makers love: wood, numbers, days of the week, months, Crate flowers, doilies and a vintage ephemera pack. Leanne has chosen to work with some of the 12x12 patterned papers from this range to create four cards.
Drawn to the vintage haberdashery themed accent on the cut out sheet, Leanne made it a feature on this centre step card. To tie in with the vintage feel of the range Leanne spritzed, scrunched and iron dried her papers to get them to mimic fabric. She also hand died the crinkle ribbon to give it a distressed look.
This card features some of the smaller patterned papers which are perfect for card making. By using the elements on the cut out sheet Leanne was able to create matching borders to add to the card.
This card was really quick to put together thanks to the “Thank You” sentiment featured on one of the cut out panels. Leanne hand cut some fishtail banners and added some pearls.
The rustic look of the wood grain inspired Leanne to get out her dies and create this card. To add an additional element of interest to the front of the card front Leanne used the Sizzix Bigz XL Die - Card Fronts, Bracket & Ticket.
Tamara Tripodi created this adorable layout using the DIY Shop papers. The neutral toning and small floral print work really well together. Tamara had so much fun creating this layout and you can read her comical account over on her blog. Thanks for sharing this layout with us Tamara!
We have some wonderful inspiration coming all the way from Singapore. Jeanette Lee started scrapbooking since November 2008, with the initial intention of only making Christmas presents for friends. The love for scrapbooking slowly developed and right now, it has become more than just a regular hobby. This layout was an experiment with the 'blocking' technique. Jeanette assembled each section with layers and embellishments while making them cohesive as an overall layout. To create the title, Jeanette used one of her favourite stamps, stamped it on a tag and used it as the title.
The 3 photos here were the inspiration behind the title. Being able to eat local food in a foreign country felt like home. She placed white stickers on each photo to ensure that the eyes run vertically down the page. A polaroid frame is meant to place a photo but in this case, Jeanette decided that it could be used to layer elements both behind and on the front of the frame. There are bits of confetti too, if you look closely. Thank you Jeanette for sharing with us your beautiful work! If you would like to see more of Jeanette Lee's work, you can check out her blog here.
Kaori, a member of the Crate Paper design team, has created these two gorgeous layouts. Both using almost the same products from the On Trend collection, yet both are completely different. Thankyou for letting us share your inspirational work Kaori.
All the way from Germany, Janna Werner from the Crate Paper Design Team has allowed us to share her creative page using a mix of Acorn Ave and On Trend. Her design is so appealing and it's lovely to see the muted tones of the collections used as well.
Janna also created this very cute layout featuring the Maggie Holmes collection and some Silhouette die cut elements. Jana has used both the negative and the positive of some of the images she die cut, it’s a great example of how you can mix different elements on your page. Jana has also outlined some of the shapes with a black pen, to add more dimension. The layout also highlights the versatility of the collection as all the patterned, floral and background elements co-ordinate beautifully.
You can see more of Jana creativity on her blog. Thank you for sharing your layout with us!
