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.

Rikki doesn’t own a cutting machine and this is why she loves the Summer Splash Specialty Paper.  With this Paper Rikki achieves the effect of a cutting machine with minimum effort.  The paper is cut for her and ready to go onto her gorgeous beach side Layout.

Tip #5 – Fussy Cut your Stickers

“Your smile” Layout ~ by Jowilna Nolte

For me, stickers mean layering and trimming close around the edges to make them look less like stickers and more like fussy cut elements but with the ease.

Here I layered the tiny bird sticker from the sticker sheet on top of a cut out from the patterned paper.

The rose sticker is sandwiched between a cutout flower and cut out element from the patterned paper sheet and finish off with a
butterfly from the specialty sheet gold leafed on the back to create a stunning element.
