When life hands you lemons…

by Claire Barrin | 0 comments

Dear Scrap FX readers,

I have to admit, I am not really good at card making.

And that’s why I am a huge fan of the Scrap FX chipboards: they can be used so easily, without adding too many things.

For example, here are 2 cards I made really quickly.

On the first card, I decided to add the When life hands you lemons phrase chipboard on a scrapbooking printed paper I add.

I coloured the Inside of the lemon with yellow acrylic ink, and tainted in black the words ‘lemons’ and ‘lemonade’.

The second card is also really easy.

I chose to use the Donut Worry Be Happy pack, and the Live Love Bake cupcake together.

I used common feltpens to add some colour.

My tip is: chose carefully the feltpens you want to use by trying them on the back of you chipboard. It has to be not too light and not too dark, or you chipboard will turn all brownish…

Items used:

When life hands you lemons phrase

Donut Worry Be Happy

Live Love Bake

*****

Well, that’s all for today.

I wish you a very pleasant day.

Treasured Memories

Hello dear Scrap FX friends

I am back on the blog today sharing 2 projects using a combination of old and new chipboard pieces. Grab a cuppa and see how to create these yourself.

Treasured Memories

Scrap FX Products used:

Treasured Memories

Donut Worry Be Happy

First I created a background by sponging black gesso in the focus area of my layout. Next I stenciled it with a 13@rts stencil and white gesso. I simply matted my photo on black cardstock and affixed the photo into place. Note that I used scrap chipboard pieces underneath the photomat as well as in between the photo and the photomat to create extra texure.

Next I added clusters of embelishments.

I decided to alter the chipboard sentiment Donut Worry Behappy and cut the words apart. I also left the u out as I chose not to use the donuts that comes with it.  This way I had 3 separate words to add to my layout.

Next I coloured the chipboard with white Brilliance ink.

Home is…

ScrapFX products:

Coffee phrase

Scribble Circles

As you know I love my coffee and I thought this would be a nice little wall hanging for the kitchen.

I simply used a take away bamboo bowl and added some dried root from 13@rts. To add to the home feel I added some dried orange slices, vintage lace and red gingham ribbon.

Next I added some flowers.

I simply coloured my chipboard using white Brilliance ink and Dark Brown Archival Ink.

All done, quick and easy.

I hope you enjoyed spending time on our blog today and hope to see you here again soon. Please leave us some love and welcolme the beautiful ladies who recently joined our team.

Till next time have fun xxx

It’s all good by Kerstin

Welcome!

today I have a new layout for your inspiration  with some various products from

Scrap FX.

 A mix of stamps, chipboards and transparency sayings.

IT’s summertime here, time for relaxations, sun and sea.

In memory on a beautiful time by the sea

I have created this maritime layout with a touch of a vintage feeling suitable to the saying

– She was (is) 🙂 a modern girl with a vintage soul –

I used these Scrap FX products

She phrases transparency

Fancy feathers

Moments

Flourish 19 Wing

Art Noveau Arc

Filmstrip stamp 

I coloured the frame with white and a little bit blue acrylic paint.

The altered lighthouse was a die, which I used with textured paper and a little bit of distress vintage paint

I added the flourish to the frame, so it looks like a sea wave.

I also love to create a  marble effect, here I started with blue acrylic paint, then on some place white embossing powder and finally some dark acrylic paint over the embossed areas.

I often use this ‘Burnt Copper Leaves’ Embossing powder from Emerald Dare Creek, it’s so great, because you have copper metallic particle as well as additional black flecks in the one powder.

The film strip is always a wonderful addition for all scrapbook layouts, it suits everything, no matter what style you prefer

Many thanks for your visit!

I hope you like my inspiration!

If you want to see more mixed media ideas, maybe a fantasy rusty canvas with this amazing Steampunk Seahorse from Scrap FX

 Then have a look on my blog tomorrow

See you later!

Darkness in the Summer tags

by Marie Johansson | Comments Off on Darkness in the Summer tags

Hi crafty souls! Marie here today with a strange set of tags made with the Clock Hand Stemapunk Flower, Botanical Clockworks & some mini cogs and mesh panel.

Let me tell you the story…

Where I live in the North of Sweden the sun never sets during the Summer. Yes – you got it right – we have daylight all 24 hours! Well, this can seams like something exotic to many of you, but for us up here, that has this with us since birth, we can sometimes miss the dark period of year. Miss to light candles, miss to sleap all night without waking up thinking it is morning. SO these tags celebrate the darkness that we sometimes miss so much in the middle of the summer (of well – in the middle of winter it´s the opposite – then we miss the light…)

The base for these tags are a patterned paper from 7gypsies (Gyspy Seamstress collection). I glued on the Scrap FX chipboards on top o it and then painted it with black heavy gesso and different shades of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.

I also sprinkled over micro beads and colorful beads. A word sticker finish and a wire heart compliment the look.

Thank you for stepping by today!

I have used these products from Scrap FX:

  • 2016416 Steampunk Flower Clock Hand
  • 2016407 Botanical Clockworks
  • 2011007 Cogs Mini
  • 2014124 Mesh Panel

 

See you soon!

Marie

Coffee o’ Clock

by Anguree Jansen Van Rensburg | Comments Off on Coffee o’ Clock

Hello lovelies

It’s the start of June and I am back on the blog sharing another set of fun ATC cards. This month our release focuses on the good things in life. Yes those little pleasures that makes life better every day.

I do love my cofee and it definitely makes me a better person… or so I like believe 😜 So wether you like tea or coffee go and grab your cuppa for a short tutorial on how to create these yourself.

Scrap FX Products:

Chefs

Coffee mugs 

First I cut up a scrappy background I created for another project but which failed to fulfill its orginal purpose. Next I cut to more mats for my card fronts in matching colours.

Adhere all the layers together with your favorite adhesive but remember to add a scrap piece of chipboard to the back of the card front to add a little texture.

Colour the chipboard pieces with gold and copper Brilliance of Versa ink.

Tie and cut some tulle bows to add underneath the chipboard.  Use Heavy body gel to adhere the chipboard and tulle to the card fronts. Add a couple of your favorite flowers, Prima Marketing Art Stones and matching sticker strips. Add some gold paint to the art stones and allow to dry.

Voila you are done.

I hope you enjoyed this time with me today and would like to thank you for stopping by. Please let us know what you think and leave us some love.

Till next time have fun.
