How to use a Die Cut Page.

October 17, 2018

Today the design team will share a few layouts using one the die cut paper CERAMIC.

Just looking at it there are so many different ideas floating in my mind of how to use this page.

Use the whole piece as a background
Cut the square out from the centre and use the outside as a frame
Use the 4 tiles in the middle as a whole or cut up separately and layer

Both Renee and Kasia have cut up segments of the border and used them in their layering of papers.

Captured in our heart Forever – Renee Aslett

Thankful, Grateful, Blessed – Kasia Leach

 

Lisa has used the whole die cut as a background for her layout

Blessed – Lisa Amiet

 

and Alicia has used the whole die cut, cut into two pieces and featured as the focal point of a double layout.

Thankful – Alicia McNamara

First Noel – Layout Inspiration

October 10, 2018

FIRST NOEL

Nobody does a double layout better than Jowilna.  
Today we share a stunning one she has created using the new First Noel Christmas collection.

Papers: First Noel Collection – P2613 Wrapped | P2615 Wonderful | P2616 Holy Night | P2618 Hark | P2621 Starry
KC Products:CT946 Collectables | FL364 Flourishes | SS372 Sticker Sheet | Double Sided Tape
Other:Gesso, Gold Leafing

 INSTRUCTIONS

[step 1]
To create the background for your layout, use double sided tape and adhere WRAPPED and HOLY NIGHT together at the back.

[step 2]
Decide the placement of your photo and make small pencil marks.
Use gesso to add some interest to the background by painting a frame around the photo area.
Leave the gesso to dry.

[step 3]
Cut out elements from your patterned papers HARK, WRAPPED, and WONDERFUL.
Ink the edges of the elements to hide any cutting marks.

[step 4]
Use double sided tape and adhere your matted photo 8cm (3 ¼”) from the left edge
and 4.5cm (1 ¾ “) from the bottom of your background.

[step 5]
Use a 5mm and 2cm wide double-sided tape and create a corner using the tape.
Adhere the thinner tape first and then the wider tape to create a corner around the bottom right hand corner of your photo.

[step 6]
Remove the backing from the double-sided tape.

[step 7]
On the sticky taped areas add gold leafing liberally and flatten with your fingers until the entire piece of tape is covered in gold.
Use a soft flat medium sized paint brush and remove brush over the gold leafing until it gives a nice smooth finish.
Brushing the leafing will also remove any excess flakes.
Return the excess back into your container.

[step 8]
Adhere your cut-out wreath in the top right-hand side of your layout.
Use a combination of cut out twigs, leaves and collectable elements and adhere them to the wreath.
Add 2 gold birds on either side.

[step 9]
Add cut out gift boxes, houses and other elements to finish off your layout. Add diamante and white paint splash.
