Documented Renee Aslette Tutorial Tuesday

Create a Vintage Layout using the Documented Collection

January 16, 2018

Hello There Crafters,

It’s Renee here, to share with you, a tutorial on how to create a Mixed Media Vintage Layout using the Documented Collection, including the Typography Template and Clear Stamps.

I start by using the Documented Collection P2462 Lockers (Reverse) as the background.

I want to create layers and texture.  So  next I am going to use Whipped Spackle and the IT030 Mini Designer Template – Typography along the right side of the page.

I allow this to dry naturally.

Using a dry brush, I add some White Gesso to the centre of the page and then also allow it to dry naturally.

To create the above affect, I use a combination of the IP719 Ink Pad – Black and a Tim Holtz Distress Ink Oxide – Vintage Photo.  Using a piece of empty packaging plastic, I add some of the ink and then stamp in the section I would like it to go, focusing more on the areas where the gesso is and around where the photo will be.

Here is a close-up:

Using CS785 Clear Stamp – Typewriter Font and an acrylic block, add some letters in random spots on the block to create an alphabet stamp.

I wanted add another pop of colour, so I use IP723 Ink Pad – Vintage and the Ruler from CS319 Clear Stamp – Documented.

Here is a short video to show you how I created the stamping technique.

This is what it looked like after I completed the stamping.

Here is a close-up:

From here it was a matter of finishing with various Patterned Paper, Collectables and Die Cuts from the Documented Collection.

The Title “Memories Together” came from SS355 Sticker Sheet – Document Collection.

Tearing sheets of Patterned Paper give this layout a vintage feel.

I love this collection and I know you will too.

I hope you were inspired and thank you for stopping by.

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

Kavitha Layouts Tutorial Tuesday

Enjoy the little things – Layout + photo tutorial by Kavitha

October 24, 2017

Hello everyone!!

Kavitha here today sharing a layout using “Rose avenue” collection.This collection must be one of my all time favorites,if you are a shabby chic lover like me then this collection is a must have.

To begin with i cut out the circle shape from the die cut paper and distressed the edges using sand block.

Sponged some ink on the edges using “Orchid” ink pad

I glued the circle to the paper “Suite” and applied “Orchid” ink through “Tile pattern” template

Next i applied some  modelling paste through mini designer template “Blossom”

I used some floral borders from the sticker sheet,cut them into few pieces and arranged them around one half of the circle

Next step is to fussy cut some flowers from papers “Patio” and “Courtyard”

Now keeping the photo as focal point i arranged the florals in such a way everything lies on one half  of the circle to balance the layout.

Here is my completed layout,i also added some die cuts flowers and leaves from the collectables.To match the purple in the photo i added some flourish die cuts using the gorgeous glitter cardstock “Blossom”

I added some pearls and rhinestones randomly and finished off the layout with the title from the sticker sheet.

Some close ups…

Christmas Mini Album Tutorial Tuesday Videos

Christmas Envelope Mini Album Tutorial

October 17, 2017

Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a great week viewing the new collections from Kaisercraft. As you have seen, Kaisercraft have released some beautiful Christmas collections this year and the Mint Wishes Collection certainly doesn’t disappoint. Today I am sharing an envelope mini album that I created using this collection. This album is a gift for a dear friend of mine who is a proud ‘poppy.’ He enjoys sharing pictures of his grandson from his phone, so my gift to him is this album. As he is a non crafter, the album is straight forward therefore it is easy to construct.

I have two videos to share with you. One is a walk through of the completed album and the second is the tutorial. So grab a cuppa and enjoy!

 

The Video Walk Through

The next video is the tutorial. This is a lengthy video as it was filmed in real time. To assist you in your viewing, you can fast forward to the following sections:

33m matting the covers

39min hinges

51min pages and inserts

57min matting pages and inserts

1hr 1min attaching pages to album

1hr 3 min creating the pocket and belly band

 

 

<

 

The format of the album was deliberate. I didn’t want it to be too difficult for my friend, as some mini albums have a lot of interactions. However there are still lots of spaces for photos.

 

Mini books are great inserts into mini albums. You can journal and add small photos. The sentiments from the cut a part sheet are great for creating these.

The papers in the collection coordinate beautifully! You can mix and match so all of the components of your album effortlessly. By limiting the colour palet, it makes the designing the album less complicated and it makes the whole experience enjoyable.

Other: Distress Ink Vintage Photo |Scor-Tape| Crop-o-dile Corner Chomper Tool Deco and Stub and Corner Rounder Tools.

 

I hope you’ll try and create an envelope mini album with one of the Kaisercraft Collections.

With one pack of envelopes, you can make two mini albums. These are great as gifts and also Christmas is coming!

Happy crafting!

Hugs from Cathy
