this is one of the pics from my recent Thailand holiday…. I had the most amazing trip and some unbelievable experiences… this pic was from one of my many visits to Tiger Kingdom….

I used the midi title “fabulous“…. it summed up the experience perfectly…

to create the background texture I used the new botanical stencil…  this is a fabulous large stencil and created the perfect base for my photo to sit on…

Circle stars and fireworks!

by Claire Barrin | 1 Comment

Dear you all,

How about some designs with this month’s awesome novelties?

This post will be about the new amazing stencils and how I used them.

Let’s start with two cards.


The first one is a birthday card.

Fireworks seemed to be the perfect design to use as a main part of my background.



I filled in the Fireworks stencil with modeling paste, and then painted my background with a watercoloured Rainbow.


scrapfx-luckie-carte-4The stars were outlined out of the Seeing Stars chipboard.

Item used:

Fireworks stencil,

Seeing Stars,

Happy Birthday D


My second card is a “get well soon” card for a really sick lady I know.

I picked up the Flying Geese because I realy felt the way they fly was a message of hope.



I used the same technique as the card above. I used modeling paste over my Circle Star stencil and watercolours.

scrapfx-luckie-carte-7with a pencil, I outlined every circle from the stars, I think ths adds up a bit of volume.


Item used Circle Star stencil, Clear Clouds, Flying Geese.


My last design for this month is a layout. once again, my method with the stencils is exactly the same.




Before adding watercolours on my background, I stamped the Chevron Border stamp with drawing gum and peeled it off avec painting. I just love the way they look sparkling white!






Item used: Circle Star stencil,

Simply Adorable,

Chevron Border stamp,

Letter & Number Rings stamps


I hope you liked these.

Have a nice day!

Good times – two layouts by Riikka

by Riikka Kovasin | 1 Comment


Hi there! It’s Riikka here today sharing two pages with you using the new collection. They both have in common the good times and friends. From this link (link) you can see all the new chippies – like the great drink glasses!

This first layout is made about a lovely drink in the company of good friends. We visited a new steam punk themed bar in Helsinki city center and the “Gigglemug” I had is by far the best drink I’ve ever had! So of course I needed to document that.


I started the page with some mists and stencils. First I added some black India ink to the side and then sprayed the “Fireworks” pattern on top. I also added another color through “Words of Wisdom” stencil. The background also has dots drawn through the “Circle Star” stencil and some stamped arrows using the “Chevron Border” stamp.

The main element in the layers behind the photo is a strip from the “Filmstrips Transparency” sheet. As the bar had a steam punk style decor the goggles and mustache from the “Photo Props” set fitted the page perfectly. Naturally I needed to add a drink in the decorations as well from the “Cocktail Glasses” set. There’s also hearts, a piece of the arrow and a geotag. The title is a chippie, too. The black ones are colored with India ink marker and the colorful ones are treated with alcohol ink markers. The golden ones are treated with Fab Foil.


 Materials from Scrap FX:

2015239 Filmstrips Transparency

2015270 Picture Perfect Mini

2015238 Cocktail Glasses

2015224 Photo Props

2015145 Chevron Bits

2014388 Map Pointers

2014197 Lots of Love

2015241 Chevron Border Stamp

2015243 Fireworks Stencil

2015244 Circle Star Stencil

2015172 Words of Wisdom Stencil


The other page is also about friends but this time we had tea and not drinks. When Marie from Sweden took a cruise with her family to Helsinki Terhi and me wanted of course to meet her and went to the harbor to have a late breakfast! We had so much fun talking and chatting!


This page I started with the “Family Faces” stamp. I think those fun faces fitted the page so well! On top of them I then added the circles using the “Letter and Number Ring” stamp. I also stamped a few circles using a tiny stamp from the “Build a Flower” set. The background still need a little something so I doodled a couple “Circle Stars” in there.


First I was planning to use the film strips mixed in the paper layers behind the photo but happened to lay them on to the paper on top and underneath the cluster and really liked the look. I colored most of the chippies black using an India ink marker – like the title parts one and two, the rose underneath the flair and the crown and the glasses from the “Photo Props” set. The frame on top of the photo I colored green as black would have been too harsh.


I hope you like my layouts and find inspiration in them.

Thank you for visiting today! See you next time! Have fun times with friends and family!

Mini album with Irina Gerschuk

by Irina Gerschuk | 1 Comment

Hi my friends!
It’s Irina Gerschuk with you today and I’m super-excited to share with you my mew mini album created using different Scrap FX chipboard pieces.

Here’s the collage of my project just to realize the whole idea:

Products used:

And here’re some close-ups of this album:
I’ve used the leftovers from the Mini Feathers set to decorate the cover. I’ve used different embossing powders to achieve some kind of ombre effect
I’ve colored all the chipboard pieces at this mini album with different embossing powders. As for me it’s one of the nicest ways to decorate it.
The swirl was covered with two colors of embossing powders to match the photos. I’ve also added badges and rhinestones to finish the composition
I’ve used the Mesh Panel as one of the layers of the background (it adds more depth)
IrinaGerschuk_mini_sea_1_4 IrinaGerschuk_mini_sea_1_4_1
I’ve used the Art Deco Corner as the top layer- it also added more depth and perspective
I’ve covered the corner with green embossing powder as an extension of the photo
Here and there I’ve used B Words and C words sets:
IrinaGerschuk_mini_sea_1_5_2 IrinaGerschuk_mini_sea_1_7 IrinaGerschuk_mini_sea_1_7_1
For one of the photos I’ve created a shaker using transparencies and heart-shaped sequins. I’ve also inserted White Feathers inside as a background for this photo
Hibiscus Flowers were covered with white and blue embossing powders, I’ve added them here and there as a zest

Thank you for stopping by!

Have a lovely day!
