Two layouts by Riikka

by Riikka Kovasin | 0 comments


Hi there! It’s Riikka here today sharing a couple of layouts with you. I used the party themed new chippies in these, but like always, mixed in some older products as well. The other page is romantic and pink and the other one more modern and blue. So let’s get started!


The first page you can see on top there. It’s made about how my husband and I got engaged. We had been together for years and I kind of knew he was going to ask me to marry him. One day we drove to my parent’s summer house and without me knowing it, he had then asked my father’s permission to marry me – yes, my love is old fashioned in that way. On the way back home we didn’t drive the usual route but instead drove along the coast line. He remembered that I had said that I’d love to be proposed near the sea. Because it was autumn the weather was not on his side – it was dark and rain poured down from the sky. So instead driving to the sea shore, he asked me to marry in the car as the weather was so terrible. The ring was in the glove compartment.


As we’ve been soon even married ten years (well, year and a couple moths to go), it was about time I finally wrote that memory down! I used pink and flowery papers in the page and treated all of the chipboards with golden embossing powder. I even created a golden swirl to the background using the “Damask”stencil and gold crackle paste. I also added so pink mist through the “Botanical” stencil, but that’s not that visible in the finished layout.


The main embellishments in the page are the two flourishes – the “Doodad J Tails” one vertically and the “Flourish 19 Wing” one horizontally. Near these two there’s also two horseshoes from the “Mini Horseshoes” set. Part of the title is also done with a chipboard, the “Engagement Mini”. And to finish the lovely feeling there’s a heart from the “Lots of Love” set and the word “Love” cut from the “Vocational” transparency. The little circles around the page are drawn using the “Random Dots” stencil.


Supplies from Scrap FX:

2016329 Doodad J Tails

2015295 Botanical Stencil

2013172 Random Dots Stencil

2016191 Mini Horseshoes

2014197 Lots of Love

2016257 Vocational Transparency

Where the first page was sweet and romantic, the other one is a bit more modern and colorful.


In this layout I documented my older daughter’s birthday party. Each year they can choose a theme or color in which we decorate the room and use that also as inspiration to the food we’re going to serve. Last year, when she turned seven, she chose Disney’s Merida as the theme. I sewed her a Merida dress, we had blueberry cheesecake (she asked for it) and during the kid’s party we for example made witch’s brew and the kids got a bear claw pendant as reward.


I chose a minty green patterned paper with dots as my background as it was happy and birthday like. Otherwise I then used dark blue and white, both colors were present in the Merida dress I sewed.

The main element in the background is the word “seven” from the “Milestone Card Seven”. I glued it to the page and then painted gesso on top. The first blue layers are made with mist and watercolors and on top there’s a subtle pattern made with the “Cool Circles” stencil. The big white numbers in the edges of the page are done with the “Fancy Number” stamps and embossed with white embossing powder. I used the same powder also to coat the “Hip Hip Hooray” chippie.


On top of the “seven” in the background and the “hooray” in the title, there’s also one more word in the page. It’s one of the hashtag words from the “#party” set. I painted that blue with watercolors and then added white “stitching” on top using a gel pen. The same way I treated also the pinwheel chipboard, which is peeking above the photo.

Thank you for stopping by today! Hope you’ve had a love start to the week so far!

Time to celebrate

by Anguree Jansen Van Rensburg | 0 comments

Hello dear ScrapFX friends.

I am back from my holiday in Bali and today I have 2 layouts to share with you feauring a combination of new and old favourite products.

First up is a monochromatic layout with a photo of mom and dad I had taken when I was home in January this year.

Time Together


Scrap Fx products used:
Circle Mash Collage
Time Together
Vocational Transparency

This is a very simple and clean layout, but sometimes it just works and when you are a little poor on time, this kind of layout works really well.

I simply started by using little scrap pieces of ScrapFX Vocational Transparency, scrap pieces of cardstock, a leftover die-cut, my chipboard and layered them onto my background.


I coloured my die-cut with black Archival Ink and painted my chipboard with grey and white acrylic paint.



Once the chipboard was dry I added them to my layout and placed my photo in the desired spot.


Next I simply added a few metal embellishments .


To finish it off, I matted my layout on a sturdy chipboard background which I painted with black paint.

30th Birthday Cake

My 30th birthday was huge, I celebrated for three days and did my first ever tandem parachute jump. It was awesome and on the Sunday we had a boat ride with friends and this gorgeous cake.


Scrap FX products used:
30th Mini
Birthday Cake

I started by creating a bright background using Flutterby Designs Acrylic paint.


Once this was dry I matted it on coloured cardstock and painted my chipboard with the same paint I used for my background.


The rest was pretty easy as I just matted my photos on white and added a couple of embellishments and die-cuts. I also raised the photos and one of my die-cut images by adding chipboard pieces on the back.

Voila it was done. 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this post with me and hope you visit us real soon for more inspiration by my fellow design team members.

Till next time have fun and enjoy scrapping.

Hi everyone, thanks for joining me here,
today I want to share with you my latest projects for Scrap FX.First up I have a quick layout …. Girls Just wanna have Fun

 this is a snapshot from a recent retreat … we really did have some fun!!

I painted up the title with some Vivid Ultra Metallics and chose to wrap some wire around some of the letters for a little added effect…

Next up I have a canvas I made for a friend of mine who has just turned the big “50”…

she loves purple and sugar skulls…

I used the Sugar Skulls mini and painted them up…

to create their hair effect, I used the Daisy Flower Stencil, with some gel medium coloured with ColourArte’s Primary Elements Arte Pigments…

For the 50 I used the 50th mini and removed the ‘th’
I thought that the “absolutely fabulous” summed up my girl friend perfectly!!
I painted these all up with the True Silver, Vivid Ultra Metallics paint…

Memories captured

by Kareen Brochu-Harvey | Comments Off on Memories captured

Hi wonderful crafty friends!

KareenBH here with you today.

Sometimes, I create a page BEFORE choosing a picture.

I do all my background mixed media and I add some embellishments

to finish it by choosing a picture or by creating one (like a selfie).

But this time, I had a different process.

I had this beautiful picture to be inspired with:


So, I show you today a creation using this picture.

Everything, the colors, the embellishments and, of course,

the chipboards has been choose for my picture especially.

Here’s my creation:


Some close ups:



Chipboards are as great raw as they are paint or whatever the technique you use!

I love them so much. Look those I have used for this layout:



#WISDOM – 2016166


And for the feathers… If you look closely,

I have used 3 different sets:







I hope you like it!

Thanks for the visit today.

See you soon.

Bird cards

by Claire Barrin | Comments Off on Bird cards

Good morning you all!

Today, let’s se how to make quick and easy cards for any occasion.

For the first card I used the Beautiful Birds stencil, but any stencil can do the trick.




The technique is basically the same I showed here:

used the stencil to draw the shapes of the birds with a erasable pencil on a thick watercolour paper.


Use drawing gum to protect the pencil lines you just made,


Once the gum has dried, put watercolour on your whole background.img_6166

Finally, take he gum away and erase the pencil.

I added some black lines to enhance the birds, and wrote my sentiment using a piece of the Birthday A MINI BULK PACK.

Item used: Beautiful Birds stencil, Birthday A MINI BULK PACK


The two other cards are made with the same technique although I just drew some stars and dots with the drawing gum.






Item used: Tweety Bird borders








item used: Love banner.


Well, that’s all for today.

Have a nice day!





Children’s Holiday by Julia Kissel

by Julia Kissel | Comments Off on Children’s Holiday by Julia Kissel

Hello my dear friends!

Autumn is here… Days have become shorter.

There are a lot of cloudy and rainy days now.

It was very warm and dry, the sun shined and the days were clear and bright until recently.

I remembered the summer and created this bright layout)

These are my girlfriend’s kids at one of  children’s holiday activities in the pics.

I used many ScrapFX chipboards for decoration.

Wordlets: My Brother & Me MINI 2016283 and Live Laugh Love MINI 2016313

I covered them with black acrylic paint.

Chipboards are bold and bright. They perfectly reflect emotions from the photos.

The flourishes Time Warp Flourish B Rays 2012033 I covered in green acrylic.

The small flower from kit Scribble Flowers 2016157 I covered with the green acrylic paint also.

Thank for watching and have a fun day!!!

Yours Julia

Shine Card by Marie Johansson

by Marie Johansson | Comments Off on Shine Card by Marie Johansson

It´s fall here in the North, only +8 degrees Celsius when I write this. The leaves are shifting towards the orange, yellow and gold. That inspired me to create this card with the Fancy Feathers (both big & small) and the drawing Feather.


I love how the feathers turned out when I colored them with orange stamping ink. A really easy way to transform the chipboard without destroying the texture.





I love the “swirly tail” on the drawing feather! It looks really good on a card like this. And it´s perfect that the Fancy Feathers come in a package of several feathers – they will last a long time!



The feathers create texture and dimension to the romantic card. Layers of patterned paper and sweet flowers can easily look to settled – I like a bit of a rough edge to my cards, somehow I think that it will be more interesting for the eye that way.

I hope that I could inspire you to create a fall card. Please visit the Scrap FX online store to buy the chipboard you need for your next crafty project!

  • Feather Drawing 2015036
  • Fancy Feathers 2016294
