"Happy" Scrapbook layout + process video by Louise

 Hi Scrap Friends

Louise with you today.
I'd like to share a layout I created with some new products available in store now.

"Happy"


To complete this page, I've had a little play around with the Colour Blast Shimmer pot.




I also included my new favorite stamp - and a stencil teamed with Colour Blast paste.






The wood veneer piece is from Cocoa Vanilla Studio - I love these - they are so easy to use as titles.


I've turned my journalling sideways for something a little different.


A simple cluster featuring paper banners and a doily helps lift the photo off the background.

DecoFoil Transfer Gel Stencil Background - Card and Video by Therese

Hi, it's Therese, and today I get to try out the new(ish) DecoFoil Transfer Gel for the first time and I thought it would be great to use it with a stencil and it was soo easy!  My images and sentiment are both from some beautiful Mudra stamp sets and I did some quick watercolouring with some Tombow Dual Brush Pens.  I know it looks complicated but this card was really quite easy to make.  I decided to film as I created to share the process with you, scroll down for the video.

The inner beast

It's Ann here with a fun card made using a MFT stamp set called Fierce Friends!  Now, I'm not normally a cat person, so I do apologise if my treatment of these gorgeous cats is in some way not appropriate - I meant them no harm, I assure you.


The set contains just these three images, plus a palm tree, and three sentiments.  So once I'd stamped them onto blending card with Memento Tuxedo Black, I coloured them with Copics - C1, C2 and C5 plus E00 and E02.  Then I had a blank - I didn't want to create a scene this time, so finally decided on showing them through three 1.25" circles cut out of a coloured card stock panel and I left the images on a small white square to place behind the circles.  I did have to trim out paws or an ear to fit them in different poses.  The images were adhered to another panel, as I wanted (needed) the flexibility to move the cats around before finally sticking them down, and didn't want to spoil the actual card front.

I trimmed the coloured panel 0.7cm less than the width of the card, so that a strip of striped washi could show beneath - I like the contrast of black and white with colours.  At the same time, the sentiment was stamped and trimmed into a banner and adhered beneath the washi.  Finally, the whole panel was adhered to a white card 10.5 x 14.8cm.


 I thought you might like to see the inside of my card - this cutie is responsible for another of the sentiments - Roar!

I couldn't stop there and as I do have many friends who adore their cats, I made this card for a friend facing some serious health challenges.  This final sentiment is a beautifully encouraging one I feel.

I encourage you take a look at this stamp set - especially if you love cats, which I do now!



Thank you for visiting, and I hope you get to spend some crafty time too!
