Decorative Dies Layouts Let's Go

Quick and Simple Travel Pages

November 23, 2018

Hi guys.. Kasia here today with a couple of travel layouts featuring a couple super awesome and versatile dies. Whether it’s an overseas holiday or just exploring your own city, Let’s Go is such a perfect collection to scrapbook all those memories of family adventures.

PAPERS: LET’S GO Collection: P2642 Flights, P2644 Cities, P2647 Road Map, PP1056 6.5” Paper Pad.

KC PRODUCTS: SS375 Sticker Sheet, CT949 Collectables, CD302 Coal Cardstock, FL637 Fly Away Wooden Flourishes, KM131 Black Mist, DD3315 Buildings Die, SB793 Black Pearls. 

  • > Use white FLIGHTS as your background. > Cut CITIES to 11 x 30cm (4 ¼ x 12 inches) and adhere to your background about 14cm (5 ½ inches) from the top. > Die cut the Buildings die from black cardstock and adhere along the bottom of the CITIES paper.

Buildings Die

I’ve used this die here as a fun border to ground my photograph, but it could be used in so many different ways such as:

Cutting the buildings apart and using them as single elements on a card to welcome someone to the neighbourhood or congratulate them on their new home.

Using the buildings on a layout talking about home or the different homes you have lived in.

You could back the die with acetate, foam mount and create a shaker card.

 

This layout is of my son at our mall in Adelaide.. so it wasn’t a holiday I was scrapbooking as such but an adventure we had in the city.

PAPERS: LET’S GO Collection: P2644 Cities, P2645 Street Signs, P2648 Souvenirs, P2646 Fly Away, PS546 Fly Away Acetate.

KC PRODUCTS: SS375 Sticker Sheet, CT949 Collectables, CS341 Clear Stamp, CD301 Snow Cardstock, CD302 Coal Cardstock, FL637 Fly Away Wooden Flourishes, IP752 Smoke Ink, IP744 Blue Haze Ink, KM131 Black Mist, DD3316 Texture Subway Die, DD3315 Buildings Die.

  • > Use white cardstock as your background. Cut CITIES (reverse) to 19 x 30cm (7 ½ x 12 inches) and adhere to your background about 3.5cm (1 ½ inches) from the top. > Cut SIGNS (reverse) to 12.5 x 30 cm (5 x 12 inches) and adhere to the layout. > Die cut the Texture Subway die from black cardstock and adhere along the top of SIGNS (reverse). > Die cut the Buildings die from black cardstock and adhere a little offset to the left. > Adhere the ‘it’s a big world out there’ sentiment below the die cut. > Trim out the diagonal stripe strip from SOUVENIRS (reverse) and adhere along the bottom of the SIGNS (reverse). > Adhere the strip of planes from the sticker sheet to the bottom right.

Texture Subway Die

I love love love texture dies as they do just as the name suggests.. add texture to your project. They can be tucked into the layers and cut in either a contrasting paper to add pop or the same colour tone as the layers to add subtle texture. I’ve used this particular die in a contrasting colour to create a border across the top of my layout.

I hope these layouts have inspired you to create layouts documenting not only your travels but little day adventures to your own city.

Art Foam Sheets Decorative Dies Do not use this category Tutorial Tuesday

Art Foam Flower Tutorial

July 17, 2018

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great week. I have been playing with some art foam, and I came up with some                         different ways of creating flowers using one die.

These three flowers were created using only two petals. But by making one alteration, three different flowers were created.

The above flower uses the largest petal from the die, die cut three times. It was shaped by scrunching the tops and                              embellished by using stamens in the centre.

The final two flowers use the smaller petal from the die. Their construction is the same except for the shaping of the petals.                    Another variation of flower from DIY Flora Gerbera die.

Below is a video tutorial explaining how each of these flowers was made.

 

Once you have created these beautiful flowers, it’s always wonderful to incorporate them into your projects.
