Love is still in the Air

by Jasmine Shea | 1 Comment

Hello fellow Scrap FX crafters,

I have two pages to share today, one using some chipboard pieces from the new collection and one using some older yet still fabulous pieces.

Love At First Sight

My first page is another of my hubby and I.

The Love At First Sight mini title was perfect for my photo with my focus being on me looking at my husband in the background.

Love at First Sight

I covered my title in gesso then added some green Tim Holtz ink and some black around the edges for definition.

Love at First Sight 4

I have also used the Hearts Entwined piece which I cut up to use one heart, inked in black along side my frame and then the “barbed wire” piece covered in gesso to place under some of my quote pieces.

Don’t forget chipboard pieces like this can always be used in other ways if the full piece does not suit your page.

Love at First Sight 1

Love at First Sight 2 Love at First Sight 3


My next page is a picture of my son on a boat and I love that the Large Love Scribble Frame frames the photo perfectly.


I actually tilted the frame so the scribble pieces were on the top and bottom of the photo to suit the page.

Love 1

I have added Mini Retro flowers to the side of the page to fill space and then added one to the frame to tie it all in. Both the frame and flowers were covered with two coats of gesso and I didn’t smooth it out, I quite like the texture of it being applied randomly.

Love 2

I hope you find some inspiration from these pages and

Happy Scrapping

Black and white by Riikka

by Riikka Kovasin | 2 Comments


Hello there! How are you today? It’s Riikka here to share my pages with the new collection so expect two hearty layouts! They are very different but both have a lot of hearts on them.


The first one is the black one and I believe that you now know where the post title comes from. I made the other page using a black background and the other using a white one. The story in this page is about a childhood memory.

When I was just starting school, maybe 7 or 8 years old, I happened to see Alice Cooper’s “Poison” music video on MTV. And that hit hard! I then found Alice Cooper’s photo from a magazine, cut that out and treasured it in my wallet. I didn’t have a clue back then about the lyrics as I didn’t know English at that age, but the visual aspect appealed to me and for a moment Alice Cooper was my ideal man. Thinking back now that makes me smile.


I just had to document this memory as I think my kids will find it funny later on. It also is funny how I later on became “a metal head” while I was listening to pop songs at young age and really found my style only after my 20s.

I started the page by adding gesso through the “Key Heart” stencil. On top I then added some mist and a touch of stamping with the “Circles and Lines” stamp. On the side of the white area I also stamped a black heart using “Sketchy Heart” stamp. On top of the background I then layered the “Web Heart” chipboard which I had treated with embossing powder. Other embellishments include a piece from “Heart Strings” and “Spinners” sets. The flower like lace pattern on the side of the photo is from the “Blooming Heart Silhouette” and the little circles are drawn through the “Random Dots” stencil.


Materials from Scrap FX:

Key Heart Stencil 2015338

Sketchy Heart Stamp 2015333

Web Heart 2015323

Blooming Heart Silhouette 2015314BLK

Circles and Lines Stamp 2015169

Heart Strings 2015065

Random Dots Stencil 2013172

Spinners 2012008


And here’s the white one! Quite a different look, don’t you think? The topic of this page is my dad’s new puppy. Or actually the puppy is now over 6 months old now, but on the photo she’s much younger. It’s taken back in summer when I visited there and the sweet fur ball loved to be close and slept by my side when I was laying on the grass reading a magazine.


This page I started with some clear gesso and then added mist on top. I used the “Hearts Divine” stencil but ended up layering most of the papers and layers on top of the area. But there’s “stamped” images of the stencil still visible across the page. On top of the mist I then layered stamped hearts using the “Ragged Hearts” stamp. There’s also touch of words with the “Words of Wisdom” stencil and a harlequin pattern with the “Harlequin” stamp there.

For the embellishments I used the “Heartscrawl” chipboard colored black and also two hearts from the “Heart Swirl” set – other colored black, other left natural. Part of the title comes from the “Happy Theme Pack” and underneath the title is a dandelion shape from “Dandelion Silhouettes”. There’s also a few scattered hearts from the “Lots of Love” set.

Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Memories by Bec

by Rebecca Genet | 1 Comment

Hi, it’s Bec here today to share with you another hearts layout.

P1060680 adjusted

P1060684 small

I started this page by stamping the Doily Stamp in versamark ink and embossing with pale yellow embossing powder. This gave a light image on the background to add another layer of detail, unfortunately it is hard to see in my photos :( I added colour with Prima Color bloom sprays before I used the heart confetti stencil. I mixed texture paste and heavy gesso together to go through the stencil to make the hearts bright white.

P1060690 small

I  primed all my chipboard pieces with gesso before I coloured the Happy Memories with pale yellow embossing powder, and the Heartscrawl and Love Key with Prima chalk ink. To finish off I added all my flowers and embellishments.

Adding more volume to the project using chipboard with Irina Gerschuk

by Irina Gerschuk | 3 Comments

Hi my friends!
It’s Irina Gerschuk with you today and I’d like to share with you an idea on how to add more volume to your project using chipboard. There are two easy ways to achieve it. 1st one is to glue not the whole piece of chipboard to your background but only one side of it (that works perfect on different swirls, brunches, flowers etc). The 2nd one is to use a pin to thrust in a chipboard piece (as I did in my first project).

So, let’s see what we can get using this ideas:
In this card I’ve used both of them:

Products used:

Some close-ups:
I’ve covered the key and the heart with embossing powders with shabby effect (white and pink)

I’ve glued the key and the blossom incompletely (as I suggested at the beginning).
I’ve covered the blossom with white embossing powder, then added some pearls and covered the whole construction with clear embossing powder:
I’ve prick the heart to a pin and then added it to the composition. The heart was covered with the embossing powder on both sides.

And here’s my second project:

Products used:

Some close-ups:
I again glued the branches incompletely to add more volume to the project
Both branches were covered with shabby-effect embossing powder
I’ve also added few pearls to the budding branch and then covered it with glossy glue:

That’s all for today!
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a fabulous day))

by Cindy Porter | 3 Comments

Hi everyone, thanks for joining me here today…
Today I am sharing my latest work …
first up I have a journal page that I created using some of the latest releases…”Luv u 4 Eva”

I came across this photo of Bill and I that we had taken some years back at one of those old time photo places…  I thought it would make a nice journal page with the new heart themed releases…

to create my background I used some modelling paste with the newly released Key Heart Stencil
coloured it up with sprays and Inka Gold…

I used the  Luv u 4 eva heart from the Graffiti Hearts pack, you get three different hearts in the pack…

I used the Hearts Entwined chippie at the bottom of the page… I love this new chippie… I coloured it up with Inka Gold and used some clear crackle over the hearts…
a close up of the showing the black Croco also used on the page…


One last pic of the page,

Please welcome new design teamer: Jasmine Shea

by Jasmine Shea | 3 Comments


My name is Jasmine and I live in beautiful Melbourne Australia. I am a city girl but I do dream of living in the country one day.

I am married to a wonderful man named Nick and we run our own business which keeps us very busy…and sometimes stressed….We have four wonderful children so again, very busy and very stressed….lol. We have 3 boys, oldest is 14, twins are 11 and then our little girl who is 8.

I love scrapbooking and have been doing so since 2006 when one of the mum’s at kinder invited us along to a ‘Scrap Night’. I never knew it would become an obsession. Would I have still gone along if I did know? Most certainly….

I enjoy challenging myself and trying to create something a bit different on each page by thinking outside the square. I am always looking to learn and develop my style.  I love working with turquoise/aqua and yellow. Oh, and a splash of red is always beautiful.  I think my “fingerprint” on my pages would be texture. I cannot create a “flat” page anymore. Bring on the texture.

Oh and in case you didn’t know, I am totally addicted to this crazy craft, just like you are I’m sure and I am so honoured to be designing for Scrap FX.


Hearts – Love – more Hearts

This was everything I needed to take the opportunity to scrap a photo of my hubby and I.  A ‘subject’ I don’t scrap often enough.

I came across this photo taken a few years ago and we look so relaxed, happy, content…..and younger.


2getha 4eva

I have used the Large Lovebirds A Rustic chipboard heart and cut the birds out to place on another part of the page.
I used gesso on my fingers to colour the chipboard and then used some yummy white art sugar on top to create some beautiful texture.

I also used the Sketchy Heart Stamp behind the chipboard piece to create another couple of hearts as part of the background.
The stamps stamp beautifully using any kind of ink.

I really struggle with titles. Finding the right words to use and also using alphas to suit the page is also difficult sometimes.
Having this Graffiti Heart title was perfect. Problem solved.

2getha 1


I inked it black and this time coated it with black art sugar. I can’t get enough of this texture.

See you soon for some more ScrapFX goodness.
