Love Lives HereFly hidden word

Cannot wait to get my hands on these two, the hidden fly word would look fab on the corner of a photo or as part of a title. The Love Lives Here chippy comes in 2 pieces so that it can easily be customised to suit any project.

Explore the Untaken Path An Art Journal Spread

by Katie Zoey Ho | 1 Comment

Hello Everyone,

Katie here today sharing my very first art journal spread… I always wanted to start this new form of art expression after seeing so many amazing works, but I didn’t till recently I decided to make my debut…

It occurred to me very suddenly after the demise of our nation’s first Prime Minister and founding father Mr. Lee Kuan Yew… He was one such great leader where he took the untaken path and brought Singapore to where She is today… I am deeply saddened by his demise and his legacy puts me into great thoughts…

This journal spread, Explore the Untaken Path serves as a memorial on the great work Mr. Lee had done, his bravery and courage to challenge the uncertainties…

Shoot for the Moon and Do Fun Stuff – Blue and Brown

by Riikka Kovasin | 4 Comments

scrapfxmarch2

Hello there! It’s Riikka here today sharing two layouts with the new chippies! The other one is, like the title says, blue and for that one I treated the chippies with silver embossing powder. The other one is brown and for that I left the chippies untreated. It’s fun how much the chippies can change just by coloring and treating them with different mediums!

scrapfxmarch2d1

The first page is done using the big “Shoot for the moon”  chippie. I found the phrase really inspiring and decided to make it almost the center of my page. I included the photo of my first born in the page as well, making the layout like an encouragement for her. We try to emphasise to our little ones that they can do anything they set their mind and heart to.

scrapfxmarch2d2

I started the page by adding some mist and acrylic paint to the background. The misted details are almost lost underneath the layers that came on top, but I used the Alpha Stencil in there. First I misted the color on top of the stencil and then used it like a stamp transfering the mist to the page. While misting the color remember to use the wrong side so that the end result has the letters the right way. On the other hand, as you are building the background it doesn’t matter so much if the Gs and Hs are flipped.

scrapfxmarch2d3

I also added some stamping to the background with the “School Spot” stamps. Besides the big phrase chippie I also included one of the circular ones from the “Star Theme Pack”. Can you spot it in the page?

Products used:

Shoot for the Moon (2015024)

Star Theme Pack (2015001)

Alpha Stencil (2015017)

School Spot Stamps (2015016)

scrapfxmarch3

Here’s the brown one – the mood of the chippies change dramatically with the color, don’t you think? Here the theme is just to have fun, to crete and play. The photo in the layout is taken from my craft table with some of the supplies on there. Creating is really playing and having fun!

scrapfxmarch3d1

This page I started by tracing the Alpha Stencil to the patterned paper using a black feltpen. On top I then added some stamping using both the “Ruler” stamp and the “School Spot” stamps. When the layout was almost done, the last thing I did was to add the little black circles. For those I used a black feltpen with a bigger tip and traced them through the Random Dots Stencil.

scrapfxmarch3d2

I made the title of the page using the “Imagine Play Create” chippie. I cut it in three parts and used two of the words on the top corner and “play” part near the photo. As embellishments I used a circle from the “Star Theme Pack” and also the really fun “Do Funn Stuff” corner piece.

Products used:

Imagine Play Create (2015022)

Do Fun Stuff Corner (2015011)

Star Theme Pack (2015001)

Alpha Stencil (2015017)

A Bright and Cheery Tutorial

by Conghui Li | 5 Comments

Hi friends,
It’s Song here. Today I am on ScrapFX blog sharing with you the fun and bright layout I created.
Scroll down for the tutorial.
The color theme is inspired by Scrap Around The World march challenge. The mood board is really clean, so I decided to go for a cleaner layout other than what I usually do. The twine in the picture reminded me of scribble lines, so I dug out the scribbled look corner chippies and used it on the picture.  Anyways, hope you like the layout and the tutorial :D

City Sights

by Claire Barrin | 2 Comments

Dear readers,

Today I’m taking you far far away. Some might think this is New York, but it is not.

The City Sights I’m offering you today is from… Tokyo!

Obviously, the City sights (2014411) chipboard was perfect for this layout.

luckie-citysights-scrapfx

I love the buildings on the chipboard that really match my picture.

I then used the Travel Stencil (2014396) through which I applied gesso to add travel words to my background…

Laugh Layout by Bec

by Rebecca Genet | 2 Comments

Hi everyone it’s Bec here today. I’ve been holding on to these photos for a while now just waiting for the right chance to use them, they were taken on my daughter birthday last December. This is her and her best friend trying to take photos in a photo booth at the movies, they were laughing so hard that these were the photos I got – I just love them.

Scrap FX March 3B

For this layout I used Maja Design Papers – Vintage Autumn Basics No V & No II, & Vintage Spring Basics 3rd of May & 6th of May. To make my background I used the Damask Stencil (2014054) with modeling paste and the  Ripples Stencil (2014155) with mirco beads and gel medium. On the Instant Photo Frame A (2012113) I coloured them with a brown spray and them embossed them using the Chicken Wire Stamp (2013382) and embossing powder.

My close ups:
