How Lovely are you Layout by Jowilna Nolte

February 5, 2018

Hi everyone Jowilna on the blog today with a single page layout using the gorgeous Miss Betty Collection.
I love this range for so many reasons but the soft colours combined with the vibrant pink is what really catches my attention.
How the range can be soft and romantic with a bit of spunk added into the mix.

Adding some more bright colour

I wanted to highlight the blue in the paper and elements but with a bit more oomph – so I used some liquid acrylic ink to my background.
I adhered some of my elements onto my background and then dropped the ink in selected areas with a quick water misting.
Then left everything to dry naturally. Once my layout was done I used the same ink and added some splats to pull everything together.


The rose sheet of paper just begs for some fussy cutting and they look amazing layered with elements. Add a butterfly on top
with only some adhesive in the middle so that wings can be free and add some movement.

This cute little birdie can be found all over including on the sticker sheet and make for a fun little detailed element.

Machine sewing adds some lovely texture and detail to this range of papers.

Elements from the sticker sheet layered with foam tape overlapping elements cut from the paper look beautiful.

A few key elements cut from your paper sheets can make for an economical layout – instead of buying everything in the range,
you can stretch your stash by using up every single bit of patterned paper.

And did you notice how I stepped out and actually worked on patterned paper as a background.
I love my white backgrounds because of the clean canvas it offers and the possibilities.
But I wanted to show how even making a mess onto patterned paper can be really effective when done subtly.

Documented Layout with hints of colour by Jowilna Nolte

January 18, 2018

Hi everyone, Jowilna here on the blog today sharing a Documented layout with a hint of colour. I simply love this range but wanted to add a touch of colour.

I started off creating my mixed media inked background using re-inkers.
The effect left a hint of cream, yellow, a beautiful grey and even some blue and green colours visible once the ink had dried.

A variety of Collectables elements added the yellow tones and for the blue/green I added some scrunched up thread under my photo.
This multicoloured thread gave me the interest and hint of colour I craved.


A couple of coloured splats offers the accent colours support and makes for a nice detail.

Mini Typography stenciled detail works well on the background. I could have added the stenciled details in a colour come to think of it.
It just shows you how versatile this range is – perfect for everyday moments, school days, vintage, heritage and boys.

Thanks for stopping by today. We hope you have enjoyed seeing the versatility of this range as showcased by the Design Team the last couple of weeks.
Some more amazing designs heading your way with this month’s ranges…so come back soon.
Live Creatively – Jowilna!

Little Things Wandering Ivy Layout Tutorial by Jowilna Nolte

December 12, 2017

Hi everyone – today I am sharing this double page layout created using the gorgeous Wandering Ivy Collection. For the tutorial portion I am sharing how I created
some interest on my background as well as using my die-cuts in a cheat way to add color instantly without worrying to tear or damage the fine delicate cuts made.
Lets take a look how I created my elements…
On my background I created some layered filled in circles with hand sewn details around the edges. So quick and easy to achieve but with a stunning end result.


For my flower cluster I wanted to use the beautiful Ivy die-cut. But the part I hate most about die-cuts is adding color to them once they are cut.
Especially with those delicate pieces that tear and break so easily So here’s my cheat way of adding color and cutting them without any fuss.

Step 1 – Turn the die-cut over and ink the flat side (back) of your die using 2 or more shades of green ink.
Lightly tap the ink onto the surface to ink it.

Step 2 – Carefully lift the die and place it onto your cardstock with the inked side on white cardstock.
Feed it through your die-cutting machine with your rubber matt in place. This will transfer the ink onto the cardstock and created a light embossed image as well.

Step 3 – Remove the cardstock from your machine. Lift the die-cut to reveal the now debossed and color transferred image.

Step 4 – Leave the ink to dry or heat set using a heat gun. Flip your cardstock over and position the die on the raised area of the image visible at the back.
Place the die and keep it in place with some washi tape. Now cut the image from the back.

TIP: You have to cut from the back in order to line the die up correctly with the colored image on the front.

Now cut the shape by putting it through your die-cutting machine. Remove the cut and coloured image.

And that’s how I quickly and easily add color to my image and then cut it without any fuss.

How to create the stitches circles on your background.

Step 5 – Use an anywhere circle cutter. I used my old fashioned one that I can adjust to any size circle.
Cut several circles out of your background and in different sizes.

Step 6 – Cut scraps of your patterned paper slightly bigger than your circles.

Step 7 – Back the cutout circles with the patterned paper pieces by adhering the pieces to the back of your cut out circles.
Use your paper piercer to make holes inside and even outside of the circles. Sew the circles using embroidery thread for a beautiful dimensional effect.

What have you created with the beautiful Wandering Ivy Collection? The sweetest and most beautiful collection…until the next one.
Happy scrapping Jowilna

Circles in the sand layout by Jowilna Nolte

November 27, 2017

Hi everyone, just popping in to share this quick and budget friendly layout perfect for summer.
Circles in the sand came to mind as I created this fun and economical layout.
Sometimes you don’t need to spend loads of money on a project to achieve great effects. Sometimes Less is more.
For this layout I wanted to use the sand background paper but it was a bit overwhelming for my style of scrapping so i made a plan.

Using a set of nesting circle die-cuts I cut several circles from my paper pad.
The dies give me both the center cut out as well as a thing border.
These circles were adhered to the sand background P2415 Surfers (reverse).

Then i cut the entire circle piece from the sand background and adhered it onto a white background before adding my other elements.
M y photo was also cut using my dies and adhered inside the matching frame.

These cut little fish die-cuts are just too cute. I backed some of them with the same sand paper and left some as is.

Blue diamante adds a bit of detail to the fish for eye.

And as a finishing touch I stenciled the splash in two different shades of blue at the bottom of my circle center on the left and right side.
The two blues gives me the right amount of interest while keeping it uncomplicated.

A quick layout perfect for any budget – dress it up with more techniques or keep it simple as I did.
No matter what your style of scrapping you can make this fun summer layout work for you. Just in time to capture those holiday pictures.

Rose Avenue Mixed Media Plaque by Jowilna Nolte

October 12, 2017

Today on the blog I am sharing a mixed media project with you using the beautiful Rose Avenue Collection.
I wanted to create something a little different to showcase the versatility of this range and just happened to have some wood lying around.
This “thankful” wooden plaque was created on a piece of recycled wood. I created a base using paint, texture paste and pigment powders before adding the top layer
of Rose Avenue using paper and elements from the Collectables pack.

Layered tags and elements from the Collectables pack are layered on top of a piece of paper from the Paper Pad.

Paper flowers on top of the texture paste makes for a beautiful contrast.

Texture paste was applied through the flourish stencil and then colored using pigment powders in pink and green.
The pigments are mixed with water to create a paint or paste and then applied with a medium soft paint brush and left to dry naturally.

Create different layers and dimension by adhering some of the elements using foam tape.

Use the same pigment mixture to add splats all over the plaque for an artistic look.


A few pearls and diamante scattered across the plaque adds some feminine details to an already beautiful vintage looking plaque.
This can be hung on the wall or displayed on a stand somewhere in your home as a reminder to always be thankful.
Such a beautiful way of an important reminder.
