A mixture of Scrapbooking paper ranges

There is no denying that I love mixing up paper ranges together for added interest. I love a good range, but if I can combine all that gorgeous goodness together using bits and pieces then I am as happy as pie.

For this layout I combined 3 ranges of paper together for a result that even I absolutely loved!
I combined 2 Celebr8 paper ranges together with Kaisercraft for a surprising outcome – one that is bright and beautiful with a touch of vintage and fun at the same time.
You can see all those different paper ranges and elements peeking out from the side of the photo.
The Magenta flowers raised across the layout for added dimension makes for an amazing statement against the grey background.
The grey background is from the Magenta Paper Pack and works so well for adding gorgeous paint and ink splats like I did here using the Gold Shimmer KAISERmists.
I cut out all the elements from the papers that I wanted to use. Then grouped them together building layers of pattern for my photo matt to sit on.
Combining different colours of splats adds lots of interest against the background and repeats colours used throughout the layout.
So amazing what gorgeous paper ranges can do for a quick snapshot taken from social media – making memories so much more special – perfectly imperfect in every way.
Thanks for Stopping by today! Jow

Stamping and Colouring

How gorgeous is the new stamp set from Little Birdie? I simply had to colour the images as soon as I got hold of it. It calls for creating a stained-glass window card, but in the meantime, a good colouring session with some of my favourite watercolour markers did the trick.

Stamp the image onto white cardstock. I used my smooth AC white cardstock using Black VersaFine Clair ink. Then use your markers to add colour to the image.
I did add some watercolour splats once the image was totally coloured, just because she called for some magical fairy dust floating about.
And now I need to add some glitter to her, some dimensional glaze and turn her into a stunning card or use her on a layout.

Mother’s day cards in 5 minutes

Happy mother’s day to all the moms out there! Thank you for all you are and do for us.
I created these quick cards using Kaisercraft Paper and Collectibles and a few stamps.
For this card I used my GoPress and Foil machine with an Anna Griffin Embossing folder to create the gorgeous background. A collectible flower and a stamped image with diamante finishes off this quick card.card1

Double up on Mixed Media Layout.

I love dabbling in mixed media elements on my layouts. You may think of going overboard but for me, the wisdom lies in knowing when to stop, when you can take something away instead of adding that one thing,
then you know you have created something special that focuses on the photo and the story

This range is perfect for those special memories where you may only have a single photo that you can use enlarged to tell your story.

Make your own Gift wrapping paper for Christmas.

It’s weekend and we have some awesome inspiration for you for the festive season.
There’s nothing better than receiving a beautiful gift. But wrap it in some special paper and you have a winner.
Today we show you how easy it is to make your own gift wrapping paper using POP Paint.
The best part is that each person receiving a gift from you wrapped in your own paper, is that you essentially give a part of yourself too.
the time you lovingly spent creating each unique piece of paper, and then wrapping a thoughtful gift in it – it truly is special.giftwrap1

As the base for my wrapping paper I used plain brown kraft paper – available in huge rolls and the perfect neutral backdrop.
detail1step 1 – select the colour of PoP Paint you want to use. Signal and Sprout is perfect for the festive season.
step1

step 2 – Use a soft medium sized flat paintbrush and paint random streaks onto the paper alternating the colours.
Leave the paint t dry, while working on other sheets. This way you can mass produce a few sheets at a time.
step2step 3 – Once the paint is dry, use a black marker to draw onto the background – a great way to get the kids involved. They can make their own personal wrapping paper for family and friends with a little help from an adult. Or use your stamps and stamp with black ink onto the background randomly overlapping the paint streaks like I did.
step3
Now you are ready to wrap all those special gifts for your loved ones. Add a simple bit of twine or ribbon and a few extra bits of decorations and you will have some special gifts to place under the tree this year.
giftwrap3The fun doesn’t stop there – you can make your own special gift tags to match your paper using the same paint colours.
So what are you waiting for – get creative and make your own recyclable paper this year.

Sangria Inspired Christmas Tag.

Every year I make loads of Christmas cards, but this year I am creating tags for friends and family. A quick alternative to attach to a gift and even packets of freshly baked biscuits.
The tag is often underestimated but this will become my go to way of adding a quick thank you to gifts – quick and easy to make with loads of impact.

1. Use a Jumbo dauber and ink the background of a tag using Rhubarb Stalk Memento ink.
2018_Sept_JN_Sangria_step1

2. On the right edge of your tag use Memento Luxe ink in Rhubarb Stalk and add some darker shaded edges on your tag.

2018_Sept_JN_Sangria_step2

3. On a sheet of smooth white cardstock mist Summer Sky Fireworks Spray. Use a soft paint brush and brush the ink across the cardstock.

2018_Sept_JN_Sangria_step3

4. While the Summer Sky ink is still wet, use Lilac Posies and splatter ink over the base. Concentrate on certain areas more to get lots of ink in certain areas. Leave to dry.

5. Once dry use VersaFine Clair Nocturne ink and stamp Christmas Bauble. Cut out and ink the edges.
