carta bella- Moments I Love

For this layout I have used the carta bella, moments and memories papers along with a  tando mini letterbox tray I has amongst my stash.
The letterbox tray comes in 3 parts that you adhere together so I wondered how they would look put together on a page. I painted them up and  layed them on my page and printed off some black and white photos and added to the apertures along with scarps of patterned paper. Added some stitching and stickers from the sticker sheet

The card is made from scraps of patterned paper. I have embellished the bottom corner of the frame with rolled flowers made from the paper, a wooden embellishment and brads. Finally added a sentiment made from the letters off the sticker sheet.

Christmas boxes...

Hi, Carol with you today…. carrying on from my last post I have made another gift box using the left over bazzil cardstock from the previous box, these boxes are great as you can change the dimensions so that they fit what scraps of card you have left from other projects. I have also used some more of the fantastic Graphic 45 Twas the night before Christmas cardstock….

I have made a 3d flower using red bazzil cardstock, (take a look in the die section at the shop there are loads of great flower dies available)  once I had my die shapes cut I edged using distress ink and painted a layer of Distress stickles Rock Candy, once this way dry I glued into shape and then spritzed with glimmer mist using a punch I used some red paper, layered these up and added a piece of bling for my additional flowers… lace, dew drops and pins were also added along with a tag from the tags and pockets set from the same range….

To finish off the edges I used some of the new washi tapes available here

Altered Hoop

Hi Tracee with you today to share another project that I created with the MME Jubilee collection papers. You can see my first project here

I took a small embroidery hoop and placed some fabric inside (it was a scrap that came from an old skirt). I used mists and some white ink on the chipboard fern, I then coated it with a layer of clear embossing powder to give it a little shine.
 I simply layered up the papers and used one of the flair badges as a main focus for the piece. The flair badges are a little larger than the ones I have used in the past and this makes for a great focal point for your projects.
I hope you enjoyed my projects with these gorgeous papers. Don't forget to pop over to the shop where you can find all you need for your crafty projects.

Part 3 with Bella Blvd 'Tiny Tots'

Hi there, it's Anna here popping in with part three of my Bella Blvd 'Tiny Tots' projects. 
I couldn't have this lovely child related collection without scrapping some of my son when he was little. 

I cut out the star from this sheet and added some Dew Drops alongside it. As I said in my previous posts this month this collection is just perfect for scrapbooking young children. Take a look at the whole collection in more detail here

November's crop

We're getting all ready for November's crop here - cakes in the oven, kit instructions printing and punches in the car.  This month's kit uses some of the new Distress Stain Sprays, punches and embossing. 

And just a reminder that the crop will be finishing an hour early tomorrow, at 4pm, as the hall has to be transformed into a little theatre!

Simple stories DIY stamp review

So this time I decided I would do a product review on some stunning simple stories DIY stamps. They contain lots of words, washi tape style prints and icons.
I decided to go with a project life style with 6 vertical pockets, the stamps have been subtly  used on each of the 6 cards. some have been stamped on to washi tape, some around the edge of the card.

The paper used is from an old prima collection, showing that stamps are versatile on any style of paper, they are fantastic value for money and stamp really well. I have also used some chipboard cogs, die cut cogs and the ek success slim edge zipper punch  to add dimension and interest to each of the 6 cards.

A Happy Hello

Hi Tracee with you today to share a layout I created using the My Minds Eye Jubilee collection.
My MInds Eye always have a few different colour schemes in each of their collections and this is the gorgeous Sherbet and you can find this along with the other colourways here.

I chose a white background and gently dry brushed some purple paint on it, I chose to keep it plain and simple to show off the delicate colours this range consists of. I added a few simple embellishments to it to finish it off.
I used the negative shape of the deer I cut out to create a simple birthday card
Nothing gets wasted in my scraproom!

Happy Monday and don't forget to pop over to the Papermaze shop to find all the supplies you need for your projects

Christmas gift card holder

Hi, Carol with you today…with Christmas on the horizon its time for those of us that make cards and presents to step up and get going (well me anyway!) - in order to prevent being last minute minnie again! I'm starting now….so, today I'm sharing with you this gift card holder which will hold a store/itunes gift card…

The base is made from bazzil cardstock and the top has been created using Graphics 45 "twas the night before Christmas" papers… ….I added a stamped sentiment to finish off the top of the box….to add a bit of bling I've wrapped tinsel around the top and tied in a bow...

If you left the middle section out of this box it could be used as a gift box for a small gift or for some small notelets.

'Tiny Tots' Part 2...

Today I have a quick project life page to share with you using the Bella Blvd 'Tiny Tots' collection. This time I have used it to document a child's birthday. I use an album per year and add in project life pages along with normal 12x12 layouts. The smaller project life pocket pages are great for scrapping events where you don't have many pictures. To create this pocket page I cut out some elements from this sheet in the 'Tiny Tots' range.

You can find the whole collection of 'Tiny Tots' here
and Project Life items here.

Thanks for looking!
