"J'adore" 'Tutorial by Narelle Riley

Hi Everyone

Narelle here with a layout tutorial for you using the My Minds Eye "Lost and Found 2" Collection.





 A word of warning before starting this layout.... you'll end up covered in fine red glitter!  So don't start the layout just before you need to go out, unless you dont mind going out shimmering!

Tutorial: 
1.  Trim "Splendid" paper to 29x29cm, ink the edges with black ink  and adhere in the centre of the "Beautiful" paper.
2. Cut strips of "glamourous" paper 5cm x 21cm & 5 cm x 19cm, "Sweet" paper  5cm x 17cm & 5cm x 23cm, and "Formal" paper  5cm x 19cm, 5cm x 21cm, ink the edges  and layer on the right side of the layout between the script writing. 
3. Adhere a large black and white photo over the top, with some offcut cardtsock underneath for dimension.
4. Cut a glittered heart from the "Adored" paper, layer with a heart and arrow from the Ephemera pack and adhere in the bottom right corner of the layout.  
5. Adhere a Fishtail flag from the ephemera pack and two fishtail stickers from the sticker sheet in the top left corner of the layout, and mount a "special notice" sticker across the top of the flag set using foam tape.
6. Add a phrase sticker in the middle of the layout, overlapping the paper strips.

"Bookplate Matchbook Tutorial" by Sue Walsh

Hi Everyone

Sue here with a new tutorial for you that uses one of the new Prima Book plate stamps!







Tutorial:

  •  Cut a strip of DSP 2.5” wide by 7” long.
  • With the 2.5” along the top score at 1”, 1-1/8”, 1-2/8”, 1-3/8”, 4-1/8”, 4-2/8”.
  • The 1” fold along with the 3 x 1/8” folds forms a front pocket, so make these ‘valley and peak’ folds burnishing well.
  • Add a narrow strip of double-sided tape at either end of the pocket and adhere.
  • Fold along the 4-1/8 and 4-2/8 inch score lines to make front flap.
  • Using an oval scalloped die, die cut a shaped edge for the front flap.
  • Die cut the fresh foliate from orange card and using the glue pen adhere this to the front flap.
  • The bellyband is made using a strip of dp cut at 1-1/4” wide x 6”, with a punched scallop edge. Wrap this loosely around the matchbook adhering the ends at the back.
  • Stamp the sentiment and add a heart embellishment.
  • Stamp 4 bookplate to white card, 2 in orange ink and 2 in pale brown.
  • Trim around the image and cover the back with double sided tape, leaving the protective strip in place.  (These are then ready to be used and just need the protective strip peeling back.)
  • Slip these into the matchbook and add the bellyband.
