Just Be & Puppy Love….. by Cindy Porter

by Cindy Porter | 0 comments

Hi everyone, thanks for joining me here today…
I’d like to share a layout that I created using some of these fabulous new releases…”Just Be”
there were some great new releases this month, and I had fun creating this layout using some of them, along with creating in my favourite colour…

 first up I started playing with the new family faces stamp ….. I must admit when I first saw this stamp  I thought it was cute, but also thought there was no way I would use it much if at all…. well surprise surprise, once I started playing with it… I love it, from now on it will be right up there with my other favourite background stamps… check out how cool it looks…

 next up I started with the letter and number ring stamps, these are two separate stamps in the one set… and these I fell in love with immediately… I knew I would love using them and of course they don’t disappoint… they stamp beautifully… I feel they will be a regular occurrence in my creations from now on…
Once I had finished playing with the stamps, I used the new Fireworks stencil…. this stencil is extremely versatile, it can be used as a whole, or just for the firework swirl or just for large dots… so many choices…
Finally I finished off the layout with some chipboard pieces… I used the “just be” feather title, and the soundwave from the headphones and sound wave pack…

Next up I’d like to share with you….
“Puppy Love”
 I love this pic of my furbaby Kanishka, when he was only just over two months old,  just after he came home, he was so super cute, wasn’t he…
 I started off using the Family Faces Stamp with several different green inks to create the base layer of my background
 I used the new Chevron Border Stamp, this is another one to add to the fav pile…
 for texture I used the new Circle Star Stencil… with modelling paste and then added some gesso…
 I used the new Letter & Number Ring Stamps on the corrugated card…
Another fabulous new release this month is the Filmstrips Transparency an A4 transparency with 8 printed filmstrips on it… I believe I will be using these a lot… a filmstrip goes with everything…
I finished the layout off with the “puppy love” wordless…

What are we playing with this month…..?

by admin | 1 Comment

Hi Everyone!

It’s time to show what the design team will be playing with through the month of September……..a celebration of family, with titles for birthday cards, and lots of mini words for the little ones in the family.  And because we take so many photos of these events, we have filmstrips and photo props!

Teddy & Balloons large Wonderful 1Sensational 6Excellent 8

Happy Birthday E  Hugs & Kisses with heartsFavourite Memories

My first layout uses the new Letter and Number ring stamps, the filmstrips transparency, and the mini word Picture Perfect…….what better subject than my little grandson.

King-of-hearts

I just used a black pigment inkpad to get a crisp image of the stamp.  I chose one of the grungy style filmstrips for this page.

Letter & Number Rings stamps   Filmstrips Transparency   Picture Perfect MINI

Other Scrap FX items used on this layout:

For the celebration/party theme, we have cocktail glasses, masks, photo props and fireworks stencil:

Cocktail Glasses Masks, pair  Photo PropsFireworks stencil

How awesome does the fireworks stencil come up on this art journal page:

Fireworks

I used texture paste through the stencil, and when dry coloured the paste with fluoro yellow paint, then gave it a black glaze to highlight the edges.

There are so many new mini titles, it’s hard to choose which ones to use, but I think the Cute as a Button one is my favourite:

Cute-as-a-button

Other Scrap FX items in this layout:

Some of the other new mini words:

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun MINI  Boys will be Boys MINI  Mummy's Boy MINI Daddy's Girl MINI

Daddy's Little Man MINI  Mummy's Little Helper MINI Little Man MINI  Little Miss MINI

  Dear Scrap FX fans,

As I promised you, here are my designs with the music theme-related awesome novelties.

I then simply added 2 of the new chipboards: Record: Life is a Song, and the soundwave from the Headphones & Soundwave set.

Bubbles

by Claire Barrin | 3 Comments

Dear y’all,

It is almost the end of the month and I haven’t presented you anything yet…

Let’s get back on our feet!

For today’s post I used older products, but I’ll be back really soon to show you what I did with the “music” theme from this month…

*****

My first layout is all about bubbles. I made big round shapes on my background and used round stickers, and the Clouds B DREAM stamps.

I felt the Ring of Arrows was just the perfect fit.

bulles-scrapFX

to add some more bubbles, I outlines the String of Arrows with a black pencil

Another Cutesy Card by Song

by Conghui Li | 2 Comments

Hi friends!
It’s Song here today.
I am a bit obsessed with cards lately and I don’t see this obsession end any time soon, lol! Making cards is just so much fun!!! I try to pack as much as I can into a card because I like my cards bulky and filled with yumminess. Another reason I make my cards this way is that I don’t have any cute stamps and inks in that many color to start stamping, haha. So why not use what I have. :D
I know this card looks pretty complicated but trust me it’s easy to make :) I don’t have a tutorial made for it but later on I’m sure I will be making similar cards and I will make tutorials on those.
Here it is, really hope you like it!

Influential Masters – two layouts by Riikka

by Riikka Kovasin | 1 Comment

scrapfxaug2

Hi there! Riikka today here with you showing two pages with the new musical chippies and collection! When thinking about the title to the post I tried to see what the pages had in common. The color scheme is different and even though they both are my mixed media influenced style, what they have in common is the topic. The other one is about my all time favorite band, Turisas, and the other about one of my favorite singers, Dio. So I titled the post “influential masters” meaning how music is really powerful and how these too are really inspirational and kind of key points in my musical taste.

scrapfxaug2d1

The topic of the first page is Turisas. I think I have introduced them many times here already, but still, let me mention that they are a Finnish heavy metal band with Viking influences. Their stage attire or rather stage make-up is in black and red so it was really a no brainer to come up with the color scheme for the page. The band shows in two aspects of the page still – the lyrics of one of the songs circle around the sides of the layout and in the photo I have a concert ticket in my hand, bought that on the first day they came to sale.

scrapfxaug2d2

I started the page by stamping the “Music Collage” to the background with red acrylic paint. Then I added some black and pink mist on top and let them pool. The red flicks were done with acrylic paint. After drying I then stamped with black ink the “Circle and Lines” pattern and also added some random misted details using the “Grunge” stencil.

In the layers behind the photo I used very little paper and concentrated more to different chippies. The heart one I embossed with silver powder. The “Musical Symbol Collage” ones I colored black with black felt pen and painted the “Musical Heart” and the “Soundwave” read using acrylic paint.

I finished the page with some red and black paint touches around the layers, some white doodled dots and also the journaling.

scrapfxaug2d4

I’ve seen Turisas quite a few times but what I’m really grateful for is that I saw the master of the next layout live once. We had tickets to a show that was cancelled and not long afterwards the sad news came. To me he’s one of the greatest singers and had a really unique voice. I’m talking about Ronnie James Dio, the one and the only.

scrapfxaug3

Even if this page is a kind of tribute to the singer, I still didn’t use his photo but one of my daughters. “Why?” you may ask. Well, if you know the songs, you probably get it as one of the songs, called “Holy Diver” has a line about a tiger. “Ride the tiger, you can see his stripes but you know he’s clean, oh don’t you see what I mean?” So when my daughters climbed to the playground version in a local zoo, that classic piece started immediately play in my head. That’s why the page is called “Dio moment”.

scrapfxaug3d1

When I started working on this page the first thing I did was to color the tiger on the photo. As you can see, it’s a black and white one, but I wanted the animal to pop more. So I took some alcohol markers and added color to the big cat. Later on I then thought that maybe I should have used more yellow even though tigers are more orange to make the photo fit the page better, but then it was already colored so I went with this.

scrapfxaug3d2

For the background I first added some pieces of patterned papers to the 12×12 sheet and then misted the “Circular Shawl” pattern underneath the photo. As the papers I used there were quite dark the pattern is not that visible but instead the “flipped” version on the side steals the show, so to say. I also added black doodles around the “Triangles” stencil and stamped with the “Star Border” stamp. After that I felt that the page was turning too dark so I added a dimensional layer to the layout using modelling paste and “Words of Wisdom” stencil.

I wanted to give the page a little feeling of old times and retro vibe so I used the “Casette” chippie in there and also included the “Headphones” in there. Like adding white modelling paste the yellow details bring light to the otherwise quite dark piece.

Thank you for stopping by today! Until next time!
