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.

2018_Sept_JN_Sangria_step4

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

Hide and Seek layered Layout by Jowilna Nolte

Welcome to today’s blog post. Are you loving the new ranges this month as much as we do?
Today I am sharing a fun layout with you using the Hide and Seek range… perfect for those little people in our lives.
Apart from the cute little critters I am simply in love with the beautiful color palette of this range.JN_myboy_layout

I really wanted to include some of the beautiful feathers from the range into my layout, but the stamp set was a bit small.
So I used a feather image from the internet (free) and printed it onto vellum in grey ink on my inkjet printer.
Immediately as it came out the printer and while the ink is still wet I add white embossing powder and heat it with my hat gun for  a beautifully embossed feather.

Elements from my collectables pack create a beautiful cluster combined with stamping in navy blue.

JN_detail4

Extra cut out animals line the bottom edge of the background keeping the bear company.

JN_detail5

I used foam tape to raise some of the cut out elements and leaves for dimension. Tucked underneath the cluster of leaves is some thread.

Until next time – have fun with this gorgeous range.

Decorative Dies on a layout for Kaisercraft.

This week on the Kaisercraft blog we are using Decorative Dies on projects – I love these textured dies for various reasons. But I think their simplicity is the best thing about them.
You can dress them up or keep things simple like I did this time.
I had a piece of white cardstock with some ink stains on it and used that to cut the Textured Brickwork die out of the inked parts.
This created an interesting effect, that is instant and beautiful.KC_JN_DD_layout
The butterfly stamped on acetate was folded in half and attached using a brad.

KC_JN_DD_detail3

The background has some gorgeous blue pattern on it created using Infusions. Such a beautiful and unexpected effect that I love with this pink and green paper combo.

Coloured paint splats in shades of pink, green, blue and black pull everything together.
And of late I am really loving this simplistic style of scrapping – Perfect for creativity and using up my odd stash of embellishments.
