The words I covered with white embossing powder. They look very clean and contrast with the rest of the project.

and a wonderful saying.  It’s a transparency, easy to cut and you can see background  behind.

The transparency is great as an alternative to handwriting (if you do not like it so much).

Rules for happiness:

“Something to do

someone to love

something to hope for”.

Thanks for your visit

Happy crafting!

 

Creativity and Family by Marie

by Marie Johansson | 2 Comments

As the title of my post tells, this post is going to be about creativity and family. I am lucky to have inherited my creativity from my family – my grandmother was a seamstress and as I remember you always could count on her sitting with a knitting project or by the Loom. My mother followed her steps and educated herself in sewing and traditional women crafts – until I was 6 years old she held evening classes in all kind of crafty subjects. Now when I look at my kids I can see myself in them. They enjoy all sort of crafts as well. Well – this is not the end of the story…

I have been playing with the Family wordlets for the layout below, and if you scroll down you will find a small canvas on which I have used the #achieve words, Art Pen nibs & the Crafty Scissors shape.
IMG_1059

This layout is about my kids and their cousins. Every year we have a family gathering and always take a photo of the cousins. It is fun to look back and see how different they look from when we begun with this tradition. The fun thing with this particular photo is that they was joking around all of them.

IMG_1061

I have layered paper scraps on a paper from 7 Gypsies. To make the paper blend in better with the colors in the photo I painted it with High Impact paint from Tattered Angels. The Family wordlet is just right for this photo and project. The sayings under the Family word “where life begins and love never ends” is really perfect!

IMG_1062

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist sprayed over the chipboard makes it really pop don´t you think?

IMG_1047

My second project is a gift for my mother on her upcoming 70th Birthday. As I wrote earlier she is the essence of my creativity and she taken me on a crafty adventure since I came to this world. The Scissors and the arty chipboards really fit for this project.

Some details:

Again I have highlighted the Chipboard pieces with different shades of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.

Always & Moment to remember – By Amelie

by Amelie Jutras | 2 Comments

Hello everybody, Amélie with you today!

I would like to share with you today two layouts with the new June chipboard (yes, the postman was nice to me this month!).  A big favourite for me this month, I love all these words in brackets! They are very versatile!

First, here is my layout “Always”. To begin, I apply a light layer of clear gesso on all my page, then add the heavy gesso in the principal place of my page. Then I played with my inks. To make the drops effect, I add the colored ink in my gesso.

I chose to keep my natural chipboard. I love the gross effect happens.

{Always …

#Happy

Bulurush embellishments

For my second layout “Moment to remember”, after covering my page to clear gesso, I use a stamp (Scrap FX) across the centre of my page. I have then added the watercolour painting. On this layout, I use a lot of diecuts.

This time, I used the embossing powder on my chipboard. The yellow color brings out the festive side of this moment!

Everything is blue!

by Kareen Brochu-Harvey | 2 Comments

Hi craft friends!

It’s been a long time since I have posted something here and

that’s because we had a little problem with the postage of my chipboards.

We cannot control everything haha. Somebody have the secret for teleportation? haha

So, I decided to show you a layout even if I don’t have the new June products.

All Scrap FX products are amazing,

so whatever if they are « old » or new, it’s always fun to create with them.

Here’s my most recent layout. I called it: Everything is blue!

Some close up :

What I have done on my chippies?

I am sorry, I don’t have photos of what I have done but, you will see, that is SO simple!

I have placed my chipboards ( list below ) and my flowers on a plastic bag.

After, I colored them with a bunch of blues ink spray.

Before the last step, I wanted to add something more, so I add some white spray ink.

Did you saw the nice white effect?

When everything was dry, I have covered them with Glossy Accent.

Easy!

Two hearty pages by Riikka

by Riikka Kovasin | 2 Comments

scrapfxjune2

Hello there lovelies! It’s Riikka here with two hearty layouts. They both are made of my family. The first page, which you can see above here, is about my two daughters and how I wish that their inner light shines always through. Because they always make me feel all fluffy and warm inside, I used a pink color scheme in the page.

scrapfxjune2d1

I started the page by using the “Script” stamp and stamped some random blocks of color to the background. Then I added texture on top using the “Words of Wisdom” stencil and modeling paste. I also drew using a white Sharpie some brushes to the page using the new “Paint Brushes” stencil. There’s also a few stamped circles made with one of the stamps from the “Build a Flower” set.

Chipboard embellishments in this page are treated with embossing powders. There’s pink glitter powder on top of the “Scribble” flowers and white powder on the words – title from the wordlet “{Beauty…” and then the hashtag piece from the “#Happy” set.

2016174 – {Beauty…

2016165 – #Happy

scrapfxjune3

This other page is more in black and white, but hearts in this one, too. This time the topic is my lovely husband, or maybe even both of us. I snapped the photo one evening while we were washing our teeth, so that’s why he’s looking funny. The journaling talks about how it’s wonderful that he “gets” me and is as goofy as me.

scrapfxjune3d1

I used the same the “Script” stamp in the background here as well. Where I used Distress Ink in the first piece, I did this background with acrylic paint. You can see the script much better in this one than the other one. I also used the “Paint Brushes” stencil here as well and draw the lines you see on the page using it. There’s black lines coming from under the photo and white lines on top of a dark grey piece of patterned paper. The heart on the side is stamped with the “Sketchy Heart” stamp. I also used the left over piece from the “Lots of Love” chipboard piece as a stencil and drew some hearts to the page. The circles are drawn using the “Random Dots” stencil.

scrapfxjune3d2

The decoration chipboards are mostly colored black in this page. There’s the title piece from the “{Always…” wordlet, two hashtag pieces from the “#Wisdom” set and then a small heart from “Lots of Love”. The pen nibs are treated with metallic embossing powder, they are from sets “Sentiment Pen Nibs” and “Art Pen Nibs”.

Thank you for your visit today! Wishing you a heart-warming day and many happy thoughts!
