Bright colours seemed perfect to frame the mini photos of Steph's girls. Tinkering Ink's Retro Metro line is energetic and colourful and the patterns match up beautifully. Here Steph has shown that you can mix and match different patterned paper and the result is funky and fun. The eclectic elements such as the Hambly Chandelier Rub Ons and the Sassafras Rainbow Rub On add to the quirky elements that Steph loves so much.
Some time back, rather on the spur of the moment, Suz decided to sign up for Cathy Zielske's 'Design Your Life' class at Big Picture, and as since then she hasn't been able to make there be more than the usual 24 hours in a day, Suz realised to get through this class she would have to combine it with her blog workload- so we're happy to announce you'll be sharing the journey with Suz to become a better designer!
This layout is the result of the pre-class assignment where Cathy encourages participants to make their page reflect themselves and their lives, and what could be more Suz than Tinkering Ink's beautiful new Beau Jardin range of patterned papers, mixed with a little Hambly and other bits. Check the close up of Tinkering Ink's new 'Rip Strips' - self-adhesive strips of printed canvas - here Suz has pleated it but the possibilities are endless - scrunching, ruffling, zigzagging or laying on flat for texture.
Another layout by Suz using the new Becoming Green range of patterned papers by Tinkering Ink. Based on kraft cardstock, this collection of designs has been printed on 100% recycled, 30% post consumer waste product and is sold in sets of 12 double sided patterned papers. Certainly more subdued in design than Tinkering Ink's usual signature, this was a limited edition print run so get it while you can.
Suz found it the perfect medium on which to record memories about the event at her son's school where they kids were challenged to recycle all sorts of objects to create cards.
The bright vibrant colours of the Tinkering Ink Wild Woodland are simply gorgeous and Carole loved mixing the papers and layering the flowers onto this layout which she cut out of the pattern papers. Carole also used the Gorgeous Glitter Stickers and Diecuts to embellish and cut out the cute bird and folded it to make the bird stand out, which she further embellished with glitter.
Using a white background for this layout also made the colours and patterns to these papers really vibrant, so arranging the pieces, to create the layout, took no time at all.
Caz had fun playing with the Tinkering Ink Beadles. She wanted to see what she could do with them apart from making jewelery so tried them out as a handle for this chipboard purse she made for one of her girls. She strung them on reasonably sturdy wire and they work a treat. Such a cool idea.
We thank Iris Babao Uy for allowing us to share her stunning take on Tinkering Inks Al Fresco range of patterned papers. We love the burst of colour the cut out flowers gives the page, and the strong contrast when mattered on a black cardstock base. Always blown away by Iris's work - thanks again for sharing here.
And now, a big thanks to Roree Rumph of Alabama for giving us permission to show you these stunning cards she has created using Tinkering Ink papers...
Made from the Botanical Bliss line using patterned paper, felt embellishment and Chipboard letters. Simple and Stunning.
These cards would be sure to brighten anyone’s day. Roree has used the new Retro Metro line on both of these. How groovy is that flower in the second card?!
And finally, this beautiful Christmas card was made using the new Yuletide 2 collection. Thanks again Roree - your talent delights us!
