A bunch of notebooks with Scrap FX

by Riikka Kovasin | 1 Comment


Hello there! It’s Riikka here sharing a couple of notebooks I did using ScrapFX supplies. All of the notebooks have similar layers and techniques, but the chippies and embellishments are different.


I used similar colors in each one as they are gifts to be given on the same occasion. There’s a bunch of people traveling to see our favorite band in August and these notebooks are for that company. Each one of them has a back background, painted with black gesso and then mist, paint and PanPastels on top in pinks, blacks and reds.

Each of the books have a dimensional stenciled background to create texture. I used Modeling Paste to create the texture. What the books have in common still, is the use of the year chippies – 2016. The other chipboards and embellishments vary, but I used the year in each one.


Thank you for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you with these notebook covers!

We are Family

by Anguree Jansen Van Rensburg | 2 Comments

Hello everyone.

Thank you for visiting us today.

It’s Anguree on the blog and today I have two layouts to share with you. This month it’s all about animals whether it be your furry friends or animals in the wild. However, if you don’t have any animal pictures to scrap or don’t really feel like scrapping animals……don’t stop reading now.  I’m going to show you how to use some of our new stencils, to create backgrounds to suit any theme you may have in mind.

We are Family

First up, is this layout  of our beloved Chocolate Labrador. I’m sure you would agree that our pets, are really so much more than animals. They are family and my dear Charlie, knows it or rather insists on it. His favourite thing is to jump up on the bed every evening and to place himself, not on the end of the bed, but between me and my husband. Then he uses his paw to get our attention. If we pretend not to notice him or  simply try to have some quite time he will try to climb up onto us or grunt or sigh to show his displeasure (lol)… Believe me, he is quite persistent and there’s no way out for us without giving him a scratch or cuddle. Oh and no he does not get to sleep on the bed, I still have some rules…

Before I get  right into it, I would like to thank the super talented Louise Nelson for her inspiration for this layout. I’ve recently had the privilege to attend two of her classes at the Escape to Create retreat  and wow, I am in awe.

We Are Family

Scrap FX product used:
Elephant Family
Love Paw & Heart
Playful Dogs stencil
Big Cats stencil

 Step 1

Use Marble spray paint  to create a background.

Step 2b


Stencil the Playful Dogs image to the left and the Big Cats stencil to the right. You will note I stencilled both images on the Big Cat stencil, yet not much of it shows when the layout is complete.

Step 3

Add some white paint swirls and let it dry.

Step 5

Matt your photo onto black card stock and position it onto your layout.


Bend a piece of wire into loops and staple to your layout. Start adding embellishments and medical gauze to visualise the final layout. Arrange the  preferred chipboard pieces so you will know which colour to make them. (You will notice that I picked and coloured my title prior to adding more chipboard.)

Step 4



Colour your Chipboard using silver alcohol ink or paint and black Archival Ink.

Adhere the chipboard pieces to your layout and add a couple of enamel dots  to draw attention to the  photo and chipboard words. Last but not least add some micro beads to finish it off .

Voila you are done. [Insert smiley face]

Life A Life Inspired


Scrap FX Products used:
Big Cats stencil
Crocs stencil
Live a Life Inspired

 This layout is an example of how to use your stencils in a little different way that you may have thought off before. When we get stencils of specific objects/ elements/animals, it is easy to assume that it will not work because you don’t have a photo to match the theme. However if you look at it a bit differently you will see the lines of our newly released stencils, lean themselves towards a variety of options for texture and colour onto your background.


Stencil the big cat image to the top left of your page and lift up very carefully. TIP: It’s a good idea to secure the stencil with washi tape, so it does not move while you apply the Colour Blast paste. Clean your stencil and let this image dry properly. You can use a heat gun, but letting it dry naturally is better in this case as your paper will be less likely to wrap.


Repeat step 1 and stencil the same image to the left bottom of the page. Note that the stencil has now been flipped over so the cat’s head is on the left side. Let it dry and clean your stencil.

Use the crocodile stencil and only stencil half of the image in the middle where the other two images meet. Let it dry and clean the stencil.

20160713_215523 (1)

Matt your photo onto a piece of black card stock, raising the image by using a piece of chipboard in between. Position the photo and chipboard title  on the layout.


Add a leftover piece of bling flourish close to where the photo will be placed.



Gesso your chipboard title and let it dry. Add colour and texture to the title by adding liquid Pearls and let it dry.

Adhere the title to the layout and finish it off by adding a couple of bling dots.

Voila you are done.

I really hope you enjoyed your time with me and hope to see you visiting again real soon. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or comments.

Till next time, have fun.

{Beautiful} day in Nara

by Claire Barrin | 2 Comments


Good morning dear readers,

Have you seen the amazing new animals stencils and other goodies?

I think they are adorable.

Today I’ll share a design with you in which I chose to use the Antelope stencil to match my picture featuring… a deer!




I used the Antelope stencil that I slightly modified (on the antlers) to make it look a bit more like a deer.

Then I used the {Beautiful….. as a title, title that I completed with a Girl Tokens, and a Mini Blossom Stem.


I used the Jungle Corner that I painted in green to frame one side of my picture.


Well, I hope you liked it.

Have a nice day.

Shabby layout for auntie

by Julia Kissel | 4 Comments

Hello everyone!

My new project for now )))

This layout I made as a gift for my auntie… for her husband and their baby,

The old photo of 1980s on it I edited with Photoshop for a while.

The project created in shabby style and presented in a wooden frame.

used materials:

 Art Nouveau Frame C Set (2013227)

 Wordlets {Together…. (2016169)

 Orchid Stencil (2013031)

and some close ups:

Used lots of laces, pieces of fabric, various flowers and plaster ornaments.

 On this pic you can see how using the stencil I added extra texture on my project.

The “Together”chipboard covered with acrylic

The “Art Nouveau Frame” chipbord first covered with brown acrylic, then rubbed by soft candle.

And then I applied one more layer of white acrylic, and then slightly scratched with sandpaper.

So the chipbord became vintage look.


Many thanks for watching!

Hello friends,

it’s Kasia here with my new project. In this month we have a lot of new chipboards in “animals” category.

I made a layout with my beloved- my husband and my dog 🙂

The paws stamp is just perfect for animals-themed projects.

And another paw! This time this is a chipboard. I painted it with gold acrylic paint.

And, of course, couldn’t miss the title. In ScrapFX store you will always find something suitable.

Hi friends!

Here’s KareenBH today to share with you a creation

showcasing my boyfriend’s cat!

First of all, I used 3 chipboards.

Love is a four legged word

and 2 of the #pets  set.

(I’m in love with those little hashtag!)


I show you now what I have done to make them as beautiful

as they are on my finish layout.


I sprayed them with 3 shades of Lindy’s Stamp Gang Stardust spray.



They shine, it’s so nice!



I added some irRESISTible drops.



To conclude, I covered them with varnish.

I love that they look so different than the « raw » version

and the all shades makes them very good looking haha!



Before I show you the final result, here’s some step for my layout:






Have you ever try to spray on your chipboards?

Now, my layout haha:
