Donna Espiritu Pen and Ink Scrapbooking layout Specialty Papers Tutorials

“Beautiful” Pen & Ink Layout by Donna Espiritu

April 24, 2018

Hello, everyone!
It’s Donna here with you today sharing a scrapbooking layout tutorial using the Pen and Ink collection. I’ve debated between making a card and layout. Of course, the layout won!

So, let’s start with the short step-by-step tutorial:

  1. I started with a white cardstock as the base. I will be trimming an inch off of this white cardstock later as you will see in the next steps. I mounted my photos with some foam tape for a bit of height.

2. To add texture and a bit of color, I used a mixture of black, brown and white metallic mists. I kept on adding white glimmer mist until it mixed beautifully with the brown and black mists. Using a heat tool, I dried the splatters before adding modeling paste with a spatula and stencil.

3. I placed a doily underneath the photo before adhering with glue.

4. I fussy cut a lot of images from one of the Pen & Ink specialty paper. I love how vibrant the black images are against the soft sepia tones of the papers in the collection.

5. As mentioned earlier, I trimmed an inch off the white cardstock. Then, I adhered it on the Lacey patterned paper.

6. I started embellishing after this with the Collectables and the rest of the fussy cut images from the specialty paper, Antiques.

7. For the final touch, I scattered black rhinestones following the diagonal flow of the page design.

Here are more detailed shots of the finished layout

I tucked in some wood flourishes and left them as is for a bit of color contrast.

I mounted some of the ephemera pieces with foam tape for dimension.

That’s all for now. I hope you liked my project! Do leave a comment if you have any questions regarding today’s project.

Thank you so much for dropping by and see you with a new project in a few days.

Happy crafting,

Fairy Garden Kavitha Scrapbooking layout Specialty Papers

We make our own fairytale – Layout by Kavitha

March 22, 2018

Hello everyone!! Kavitha with you here today with a new inspiration using beautiful “Fairy garden” collection.This collection is definitely one of my most favorite ever,fairies and gardens are always my favorite subject plus the pastel shades and gorgeous florals makes it even more beautiful.

I decided to make a layout using the gorgeous die cut specialty paper,now it makes everything even more magical,doesn’t it?

I fussy cut lots of flowers,birds and other images  from the paper collection.I wanted them to be in varied dimension,so i cut few papers from the collection into 3 by 4 and 4 by 5 inches size,glue them together with chipboard in between each layers.While i stick them,i just put the glue in the center so that i can easily tuck in the flowers and other embellishments between the layers.


I have also used foam dots to the top layer of  flowers,fairies and butterflies for more dimension

The fairies and butterflies are cut from 12*12 specialty paper with glitters,isn’t it so gorgeous?
