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

‘Road Trip’ Layout by Mabel Sim

December 11, 2017

Hi Everyone!

It’s Mabel again and I am here to share a layout I created with the new Open Road Collection.

 

Ain’t the colours rich and vibrant from this collection? Not only is it perfect for a travel theme, but also perfect for a masculine theme.

To give off a more distress feel, I had palette knife to swipe on some heavy white gesso to create a white wash effect. I had also used texture paste over stencil to create some dimension.

To add on the distress look, I had decided to tear off edges of the paper instead of trimming it perfectly. The torn edges of papers fit in perfectly for this theme.

Enchanting Wandering Ivy tutorial with Beck Beattie

December 5, 2017

Hi everyone, Beck Beattie here with you today sharing a layout I created featuring the new ‘Wandering Ivy’ collection.  This collection is truly sweet with every detail.

I wanted to take you through creating my scrapbook page today.  I really kept is fairly simple with just a few layers allowing for anyone at any level to follow and create your own.   The page really suits many types of photos such as the one I featured from my wedding to a beautiful country scene.  The choice is yours!

Begin but fussy cutting some of the beautiful florals out of the Blue Fields paper.

Cut a section of the stripes from the Cobalt papers

Carefully layering, adhere the stripes and florals to the Panelling paper as shown.

Next add your photo which is a landscape 15cm x 10cm picture.

I selected a number of die cut elements from the collections pack to compliment my page.  Add these in as pictured in the final picture below.

I hope you enjoy creating your own page just like mine.

 

Happy Creating!

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.

Summer Stories by Mabel Sim

November 24, 2017

Hi everyone!

I’m Mabel and I’m back to share a fun summer layout perfect for your beach vacation photos!

The specialty paper (PS506) had made watercolouring the words with the colour of your choice so much easier! All parts were embossed except for the words, hence I had just randomly applied the watercolours and let it performed its own magic.
