Creating a Sticker mat behind a photo by Jowilna Nolte.

April 19, 2018

Welcome to today’s post. I love the sticker sheets with each range, but I don’t use them nearly enough. This month I am on a mission to try and use my stickers in creative ways
on my layouts and cards. And in fact I have managed to use almost every single sticker from my sheets -mission accomplished.

For this layout I stencilled a portion behind my photo using the Kaisercraft brick stencil in orange and pink ink.
On top of the stenciling I added stickers from the Fleur Collection that just peak out behind my photo creating an interesting effect.
The stickers look like a creative matting behind the photo with lots of interest.

A few flowers and a title cut from the patterned paper sheet is used around the photo – because who doesn’t love these gorgeous flowers.

A favorite sticker for me are these washi tape strips. They are so versatile.

What have you done lately with this beautiful range lately? And more importantly your stickers?
Share how you are inspired by the sticker sheets this month with your unique creations – we would love to see your work.

Friendship Inspired Projects

April 18, 2018

A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow. – William Shakespeare

Friends are such special people.  Friendship plays different roles for us over the space of our lives and as we grow friendship presents itself in different forms of people.  Do you ever think how lucky we are to have our crafty friends that share our love for crafting?  Many of these people we meet over the internet in Facebook groups, some we meet up with once or twice a year at crafty events, but for the most part of our lives we find ourselves messaging them or commenting on their work in little snippets of time while we make dinner, cleaning the house or are crafting away on a project.

Today’s blog post is all about Friendship and the Design Team has created projects inspired by this theme…

Just Because Smile Vintage Frame Layout by Mabel Sim

April 10, 2018

Hi Everyone!

It’s Mabel here and I am back to share with you a tutorial on a layout I made, inspired by the new Pen & Ink collection.

As I have the intention to layer 2 specialty paper ROUND FRAME together, hence I had trimmed out the inner circle to form a legit frame for pop up.

As seen here, I had glued cardboard pieces onto the back of the frame for dimensional effect.

Typically, when I am adding dimensional effect on large surfaces, I would use cardboard pieces instead of dimensional adhesives as it is more cost-effective. Just a small tip for you. :)

I also tried to made my own flower embellishments. Hence I had cut out a circle. Note that your circle need not be perfect, as the imperfect circumference will add character to your rolled-up flowers.

Next step to take will be to cut swirls for rolling. Note that the width of each swirl will determine the height and compactness of your flower.

A great tool to have will be to use your tweezer and roll the swirls from outside in and then place a good dollop of glue at the centre of the swirl as it will act as the base for the flower.

Check out the few I made!

Moving on to my background, I had used my makeup sponge with inks from inkpad and press it down over the stencil to create some additional interest to the background.

I had chosen to use 2 different tones of browns for variation.

Once my background is done, I proceed to mount on my round frame on top.

Proceed to form your layering and clusters. I had torn off papers for the rugged look as well as to build my clusters even on top of my frame. Dimension is a key to make your layout looks nice and professional.

Moving on to finishing touch, I am stuffing black sewing tread under various spots.

As well as to splatter diluted black gesso onto the background.

Voila! My layout is completed. Here are some close up shot~

 You are lovely layout by Jowilna Nolte

I Love using clear stamps on my layouts, and for today’s layout, I used the beautiful butterfly stamp in three different ways.
I stamped it onto white cardstock and added colour to it musing watercolour paint, then stamped it onto acetate and layered it over the coloured butterfly using a brad
to attach it. And lastly, I stamped the same butterfly onto shrink plastic and created an embellishment for my layout.
1 Stamp and 3 different ways – so much fun to see how you can get the most out of your products.

The base butterfly was coloured using shades of pink to match the paper.
The delicate acetate butterfly layered on top only needs a brad to attach it to the center, and don’t forget to fold the wings up for some dimension.

The shrink plastic butterfly was layered on top of my flower cluster for added dimension.

It is so easy to create beautiful elements for projects using your stamps. And this butterfly is going to be one of my all-time favourites.
