#Rentrée (back to school)

by Claire Barrin | 0 comments

Good morning dear Scrap FX followers,

Today I’ll show you my 2017 ‘Back-to-School’ Layout.

As usual, I worked on my background with a stencil that I outlined.

This time, it was the Numbers Collage stencil.

I chose to cut the Subject Signpost into pieces that I put on each side of my picture.

I also used a Weekdays Cards that I slipped under the picture.

You can also see a quote from the Education transparency on the previous picture.

And finally, the #SchoolFrench here and there.

Items used:

Subject Signpost

#SchoolFrench

Weekdays Cards

Education transparency

Numbers Collage stencil

*****
What about your ‘back-to-school’ layouts?

Did you made some?

Have a nice Tuesday.

Products used:

And now some close-ups:

I’ve colored the ballet slippers with three different tones of embossing powders (white, peach and pink), and added some pink glitter on tips while the ep was still hot

I’ve divided the flourish damask corner into several parts to match the composition

I’ve colored the mini feather the same way as the ballet slippers:

The dreamer frame was colored with white embossing powder:

I’ve colored the damask flourish with “egg shell” acrylic paint and added some liquid pink glitter as the last layer:

And one more closer look to the background and dreamer frame:

Dream it, discover it, make it possible

by Anguree Jansen Van Rensburg | 0 comments

Hello there dear friends

I’m back on the blog again sharing 2 tutorials with you featuring the stunning new products of our last release.  This release was all about learning, the start of the new school year and possibilities and opportunities. So maybe you made some New Year’s  resolutions and maybe you, like many of us (me included) have almost given up on the thought that you may reach your goals. Let’s face it we are more than halfway through February and you may still be struggling to get into that fitness routine or eating healthy – yes me too. Today I want to let you know it’s okay you can still reach those goals. Every day holds the possibility to start over, change and get those things done. My year started a month later because I’ve been on holidays, so technically I’m just 2 weeks behind right ? (chuckle).

What I love about this new release are all the positive and inspirational messages in the transparency and chipboard. It’s true you know. Possibility and opportunities start with the ability to dream, creating those positive things you want to achieve and making it a reality. Dream it, believe it and reach out to make it happen. This is my inspiration for both of these projects, so sit back, grab a cuppa and join in on the fun of creating these yourself, following basic instructions.

Scrap FX products used

Education Transparency

Mini Blossom Stem

First cut 6 panels from patterned paper. 3 Panels measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches and 3 panels measuring 2.25 x 3.25 inches.

Ink the edges of the panels using grey in on the larger panels and soft pink on the smaller panels. I used a sponge and some spray ink from @13arts and dampened it with white Brilliance ink. You can use whatever ink pads you have.

Cut sections of the transparency sheet and stick them to the smaller panels using soft matte gel.

Adhere the bigger and smaller panels to another using a piece of chipboard at the back of each front panel to raise it from the back panel.

Create a embellishment cluster on each smaller panel using lace, ribbon and tulle.

Cut the chipboard into smaller pieces so you have enough for 3 cards and ink with white ink.

Once the white ink is dry, sponge with paint or spray ink.

Add the chipboard, 3 flowers and some glass pebbles to each cluster.

Imagine phrase Stencil

2017 Year Pack

School French

Use the stencil to add some molding paste onto your background paper. I turned it upside down for the top of my page and only included the word imagine in the middle of the two stenciled sections. Dry with a heat tool.

Add some colour by stamping on some watercolour ink or powders using a plastic wrapper. I used the Ken Oliver Liquid inks.

Cut the remaining phrases from the transparency sheet and don’t be afraid to cut them to size or change the order of the words. our Lay them onto the background with your photo and arrange them in a way that suits your composition. Adhere  the transparency pieces with soft Matte gel.

Mat the photo onto darker cardstock and start creating embellishment clusters.

Ink the chipboard with black Archival ink and adhere in place.

Add light stamping in the background using a grey Archival Ink. Add additional texture by adhering twine loops to the background.

All done 🙂

I hope you enjoyed these 2 short tutorials with me and hope that I could brighten your day a little by sharing some positive thoughts.

Till next time, have fun creating and don’t forget to check in regularly for more inspiration by my fellow design team members.

Enjoy the Journey – by Amelie

by Amelie Jutras | Comments Off on Enjoy the Journey – by Amelie

Hello Scrap Fx friends!

Amelie with you today to introduce my first creation of February.

Fidele has a habit, my postman is slow to bring me my precious package, so I worked with old products!

I used the stencil “Brick” with heavy gesso to create my background.

For my title, I used the chipboard “Enjoy the Journey”.

I used embossing powder to cover it.

I also used the chipboard “Chicken wire” that I left to the natural.

Thank you!

Birthday cards by Claire

by Claire Barrin | Comments Off on Birthday cards by Claire

Hello dear ones,

Claire here to share some new designs.

Today, I’ll show you 2 birthday cards.

*****

On this first card, I used the new Imagine Phrase stencil.

Here’s a quick tutorial of how I made this card.

Use the Imagine Phrase stencil to trace all the letters with a light pencil.

Then retrace all the letters with drawing gum.

After that, use your favorite watercolour to create your background.

And finally, remove the drawing gum once it’s dry.

To finish up your card, you can outline all the letters with a fine black pen, and add some doodles.

item used:

Imagine Phrase stencil

*****

The second card is a really quick one, perfect for a kid’s birthday 🙂

I simply glued two beautiful chipboards on a cardstock and added some doodling.

10 minutes top, the birthday boy was delighted!

 

 

Items used:

Backhoe & Dozer

Crane & Bobcat

Well, that’s all for today. Have a nice time!

Year 12 Formal

by Marie Johansson | Comments Off on Year 12 Formal

 

Hello! Hej!

Marie here today with a layout that reminds me of summer. My son is really good at Orienteering. In fact he is the best in his age in the North of Sweden. When I got the Year 12 Formal chipboard I knew at once that I wanted to use it for a layout about him and the passed season as 12 yo Champion. I also used the Teacher Crossword since I think it summons up so much of what Orienteering is all about.

I decided to pick up the color from Max T-shirt (H12 = Male12yo), and use similar colors on my layout. I added stamping with the Notebook edge stamp & Yellow ink, then splattered on Tattered Angels Mists. I left the Chipboards “raw” so they would be really visible. A really simple page, but I do love how it turned out. It represents the sport a lot – simple but complicated in the same way.

Details:

Thank you for your visit today!

I have used these products from Scrap FX:

  • 2017014 Notebook Edge Stamp
  • 2017002 Teacher Crossword
  • 2017024 Year 12 Formal B
