Sparkle Tutorial – December Magic

August 15, 2018

December Magic Layout
Today we are sharing a gorgeous layout from our Design Team member Rikki Graziani

“When I look at a collection for the first time, I break it down in a couple of ways…. What can be fussy cut? What can be layered and how can I get it to interact with a photo once I chose one. So with that in mind I wanted to make a sort of branch with the geometric background and cut out different pieces. Then what’s a tree without some leaves? The poinsettias are always a great one to fussy cut and layer with foam tape; they can easily be cut in a number of ways and even with the spare petals they can be tucked in and around to bulk out the flower. Then things to hang off the branch….. The snowflake and rhinestone strips are perfect for that to help draw your eye down and around the layout. And the decorations being white and foil draw your eye to the photo”

Geometric patterns are all the rage.  Team that with rose gold and this paper is so versatile.

Rikki has carefully cut away sections of this to make a feature for the top of her layout.

Donna Espiritu Gypsy Rose Mixed Media Scrapbooking layout Tutorials

“You are good for my soul” Gypsy Rose Layout

July 10, 2018

Hello, lovelies! I hope you’re all having a great day! It’s Donna here with a scrapbook layout using one of the newest collections this month, Gypsy Rose.

Here is what I came up with

I started with a blank white cardstock, cutting an inch off of two sides.

Then I mixed brown and pink watercolors and splattered some on the cardstock. If you flick the brush a bit closer to the surface, it will create small splatters. So if you flick the brush farther, it will create bigger splatters.

I let the watercolor splatters stay for a while, letting it seep through the cardstock, before using a piece of plastic to spread and flatten the splatters. I also used a piece of tissue to get some of the water so the colors won’t be too bright. I just want a hint of watercolor on the background. After this has dried, I mounted the cardstock on a patterned paper.

I used this beautiful Decorative Die, Crochet Doilie, to cut a bronze glitter cardstock. I started off with this to decorate/embellish the layout.

Mounting it with a foam tape, I placed it like so and then added an array of embellishments below it to mimic a dream catcher.
I used both stickers and die cuts from the Collectables pack. Some were mounted using foam tapes for dimension and some were simply glued on top or under a piece of another embellishment.

It really is quite simple and easy!

Here are more close up shots of the finished layout

That’s all for today! Thanks for dropping by!

Happy crafting!
