Moments Bookmark by Jowilna Nolte

The idea of a bookmark for me is that it is not too bulky – so although I need something pretty it has to be functional too.
I love how the design team can come up with the same basic idea, and yet totally different projects.

My bookmark is a plain triangle created out of patterned paper that slides over the corner of your book pages, as well as acts as
a great reminder to ‘always be grateful’.

Anthology Card Making Full Bloom Layering

Tips for Layering

June 13, 2018

Layering is an effective and popular way of adding dimension to a project.  Today the Design Team have come up with some Tips for Layering that might be helpful to you when adding layers to your creations.

Summer card by Tatiana Yemelyanenko

For adding volume to my project I used collectables, fussy cut images and stamped embellishments. I also added sisal to make the composition lighter and airy.

Other: Sisal

“Bloom” Layout by Rikki Graziani

When fussy cutting dont be afraid to layer in shapes, like I have done here in circles with everything coming out from that!!

Love Always Layout by Jowilna Nolte

Layer with a purpose.
For this layout I added layered clusters of flowers just below my photograph to ground the photo.
The layering gives the photo somewhere to sit and also frames the image beautifully.

You can also layer ink colours like I did, using two different shades of pink for interest.

Layer stamping on top of inked backgrounds to add interest.
So there are several ways to add layering to your layouts and cards – but always have a purpose for what you are doing.

“Full Bloom Mini Pages”~ by Kylie Kingham

A helpful layering tip I have always worked with is not being afraid to cut stickers or collectables in half to layer behind or underneath focal points and to build depth. By doing so you are able to get more from your supplies and make them go further.

“You are so lovely “~ by Kavitha

Arranging the layers in slightly angled way gives lots of dimension to your work.Add the embellishments/die cuts in different levels to give more depth to your composition,you can also use foam tape for the top most layer.

Tips for Layering on a Layout

Think of your Layout in Levels:

Level 1 – Paper Background

To add layers to this level you could use stamping, templates, inking, water colours, texture paste

Level 2 – Paper Layers

To add layers to this level you could use fussy cutting, strips of paper, cheesecloth, sewing thread, mounting tape, folding paper leaves

Level 3 – Embellishments

To add layers to this level you could add in Collectables, Wooden Flourishes, Rhinestones, Pearls, Misting Spray.

Love Always Card by Jowilna Nolte


For my card, I used the Little Buds Embossing Folder EF285.
To add some colour and make the embossing stand out more, I inked the top half of my embossing folder with a grey ink, misted with water
and then embossed the tiny floral paper from the paper pad.
Once dry, the embossed pattern was a lot more visible than on the white background of the paper.
