Hi again, it’s Bec back again with my second layout featuring this months new releases.

I loved the title Image-Play-Create (2015022), it’s so versatile for scrapbooking children’s pages as they are always playing, creating or imaging up new thing to do. So I decided to use this action shot of my daughter on the trampoline, it’s her favourite place to play and imagine she’s a gymnast.

Another favourite new release of mine this month are the new mini words, on this page I’ve used words from the B Words (2015008) and C Words (2015009) packs.  The chipboard has been heat embossed with Stampendous embossing powder in either Midnight Black or Aged Rose. On the background I used the Damask Stencil (2014054) and  the Stained Glass Quarter Stencil (2012159) with modeling paste.

Here are my close ups:

Live-Learn-Grow by Bec

by Rebecca Genet | 4 Comments

Hi everyone it’s Bec here today with my first layout using this months new releases.

This month there is a lot of new school related products released which made me dig around to find some school pics of my daughter. Being a full time working mum I see more of before and after school care than actual school so these photo are three years old when my daughter was just five and starting school.

Scrap fx March 1

I used the new Alpha Stencil (2015017) with modeling paste on my background along with some light pink stamping using the Moroccan Tile Stamp (2013351) . For my chipboard I first primed them all with gesso and then used Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powder in Merry-g0-Round Green, Chateau Rose and Madonna Robe Gold. On the Live Learn Grow (2015021) and Do Fun Stuff Corner (2015011) I used a Ranger Emboss It Dabber to emboss each word in a different coloured powder.

Explore….. with Cindy Porter

by Cindy Porter | 2 Comments

Hi everyone it’s Cindy back again with you today to share with you another layout I created  “Explore”

 I loved this new “Explore the untaken path” title…. as soon as I saw it, it made me think of this photo I took at Bayon temple entrance at Angkor, Cambodia… I loved exploring this temple and got some amazing pics while I was there, including this one of the lonely entrance… 

 I coloured up the “Explore the untaken path” title with some Lindy’s spray before mounting it up on my photo…

I used one set of the new Shoe Soles Stamp, and cut them out to mount them on the layout… this is a fabulous stamp with three different sets of sole prints…

I used the new Alpha Stencil to create my background texture with modelling paste and coloured up with loads of sprays for colour…

One last close up to show the background detail…

Dream Discover Destiny ……. with Cindy Porter

by Cindy Porter | 3 Comments

Hi everyone it’s Cindy here with you today, thanks for joining me…
Today I’d like to share with you a layout I created Dream Discover Destiny

 I absolutely loved the new “dream discover destiny” title in the latest Scrap FX release…. it so summed up my journey to eventually see, and climb up the Eiffel Tower…  It was always a dream that eventually become my destiny to discover… 

 I just think this title has so many applications, I think it is going to be a new favourite… here I used some Lindy’s Embossing Powder on it…

 The new Alpha stencil created great texture on my background with some modelling paste, and I coloured it up using some sprays…

 I absolutely fell in love with the new “A words” “B words” and “C words” packs…

here I used one word from each pack…. each pack has six mini words… so useful and so versatile, love them….  Here I also used one of my old favourites the clockface/gears, steampunk… I treated all the chipboard pieces with the Lindy’s Embossing Powder for this layout…

Hi everyone it’s Cindy here, thanks for joining me today…

Today I’d like to share with you a couple of layouts, first up is “Just Married” 

 

Ahhh… it seems like only yesterday Bill and I were starting out… where did all that time go…

I created my background using the Palm Frond Stencil from Scrap FX and plenty of Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays…

It’s a gorgeous stencil isn’t it…

 

I used the Just Married title from Scrap FX and spray and inked it up.

 

I used the same spray and ink treatment on the Chickenwire Heart (in which I cut out the chicken wire centre, I’ll save that for another project).  I used a Prima frame, lace doily and tag along with Prima papers… I like using Prima papers for my mixed media layouts, they have a heavier weight and take the products so well, the perfect compliment for my Scrap FX stencils and chipboard….

Just Married 



The next layout; Dream, I designed for one of the lovely ladies who attended the Scrappe Tiger retreat back in May…

 I was showing her how she could create loads of  texture quickly and easily using Scrap FX  products….

 We used the Palm Frond Stencil to create a textured border for the layout, first with modelling paste, then sprays and inks…

 The Dream title was coloured using a couple of colours of Inka Gold…

 Some simple techniques to provide maximum impact, she loved the finished design….

Two Journeys by Riikka

by Riikka Kovasin | 4 Comments

Hi there!

Riikka here with you today sharing a couple of layouts using the ScrapFX chippies, stencils and stamps!

scrapfxfeb1

Do you have a holiday that was so special that you always start  to smile when you hear the place mentioned? I actually have a few of those kinds of awesome travel experiences. One of them is from Barcelona, Spain. We visited this beautiful city during the autumn of 2000 together with my high school group. There’s many great moments from that trip like visiting the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya art museum or walking through the Parc Güell in  heavy rain. As I haven’t document this trip in a traditional layout yet, I decided to take this opportunity to do so.

scrapfxfeb1d2

I used the Travel Stencil and Heart Spangles Stamp to add layers to the background. I used mist with the stencil and ink with the stamp using a turquoise / yellow color scheme to mimic the warmth and freshness I experienced in the town. The title word, Barcelona, I treated with embossing glitter to get that sparkling feeling. I also added a pointer and an arrow to the page as embellishments.

 ScrapFX supplies used:

Barcelona (2014408)

Map Pointers (2014388)

Arrows, fancy (2012374)

Travel Stencil (2014396 )

Heart Spangles Stamp (2014213)

There’s two styles of journeys – the holiday ones and then something more abstract. The journeys of growth, craft journeys or life itself. As the first page was an actual holiday trip, I thought to make the other page about more of an abstract journey.

scrapfxfeb2

I picked the colors from the photo I used – vintage brown and mystical purple. I also added some black for the contrast. The photo itself is taken from the back window of the train while the summer sun was setting.

scrapfxfeb2d3

In the background I layered two stencils: I first used the Number Party Stencil and misted brown mist to the paper. On top I created some random lettering or words with the Travel Stencil. They bring a touch of structure to the piece. As a finishing touch I also added some drawn circles using the Random Dots Stencil.

I’ve added trim to the background to add more softness to the project. And at last moment I’ve decided to add decorative berries and chili pepper to the flourish composition to highlight the theme and color of the chipboard pieceSFX_IrinaGerschuk_11_4

“A whole lot of “Moody” inspiration!” Part 2

by MichelleL | 3 Comments

 Are we ready for some more inspiration using the moodboard for this month?

Well lets go!

Just as a reminder here is the board the gals have been using to spark their creativity:

Oh and if you missed the first reveal of the moodboard take a short trip HERE.
ImageProxy-1

So first up we have Cindy B:

Cindy replicated some of the  colour on the board with the fabulous sprinkles of copper flakes and a background made with home made sprays (using Primary Elements powder by ColourArte) on watercolour paper.

DSC05944

Cindy used the powder pigment to colour the chipboard title so it complemented the page perfectly!

DSC05946

Leaving the arrow chippies raw really worked well with the colour scheme.

Take in that marvellous background and the texture created by the travel stencil.

DSC05949

Product List:

Lets hear it from Claire how she used the board:

“I was really inspired by the colours of the mood board. I decided to work my background with my usual watercolours in these shades: yellow/gold and blue, on a plain white cardstock. I also added a touch of black like there is on the mood board.
I applied medium paste (I am not sure of the English word for it) through the travel stencil, and I painted some of the words black after it dried off.”
 Claire has certainly captured a summery beachy feel in this page!
