Mini-Album Tokyo

by Claire Barrin | Comments Off on Mini-Album Tokyo

Hi everyone,

Claire here to share a my latest mini album.

I took my girls to Tokyo in April, and made a little album out of this trip.

The structure is pretty simple, I sew together a stash of paper (watercolour paper and printed paper) that I alternatively piled up.

I also added some pieces of transparencies, like the Education transparency or Mother & Child transparency.

The picture don’t show the transparencies really well though. But it’s nice when you actually read the album.

My album are usually full of embellishements, stickers and chipbaords. This one is no exception.

Here are some more pictures.

(#schooldays chipboards)

I used the three Oriental Lanterns chippies

(black card sentence: La Vie phrase BLACK)

(arrow from Hubby & Wifey set)

I outlined the Seed Pods stencil and filled it in with watercolours.

(Mini Feathers)

(Fancy Feathers SMALL)

I stamped the Hibiscus Stamp wih watercolour and outlined them lightly with a blachkpen.

(and a Mini Swallows)

I added a {Family} phrase on the back or a tag.

(heart word from #Happy Pack)

(Seed Spores)

(Fancy Feathers)

Thanks for reading all this!

2 layouts by Amelie

by Amelie Jutras | Comments Off on 2 layouts by Amelie

Hello everybody! Amelie with you today to present 2 creations. I hope you will enjoy! I must tell you that my daughter hates taking photos. I have to constantly argue with her to have some shots. But this time, she decided to play the game and then confessed to adore the experience !!! My heart scrapbooker is filled! My 2 creations are made with photos taken from our mini shooting!

First, my first creation “Life is made of little happiness”. True to my habit, I used my chipboards to the natural. I also used Scrap FX stamps.

For my title, I used the chipboard “La vie est faite de petits bonheurs”

La vie Phrase

I also used the Steampunk Dangle Corner chipboard as ornament.

And finally, I used the stamps Lace A Loops stamp and Lace B Petals stamp.

I also used the chipboard “Kangaroo Paw Stem”, which I separated into several morceux.

Woman & Girl by Kerstin

by Kerstin-Inga Peters | Comments Off on Woman & Girl by Kerstin

Hello!

Our theme with new products from Scrap FX

this month is – SHE –

As I saw this wonderful black card silhouette 

– She has fire in her soul and grace in her heart  –

yes 🙂 this is made just for me!

But unfortunately I’m not the greatest fan of my own photo’s

they are so terrible,

so I decided to use a picture from an old magazine.

The new stencils are so suitable to this theme,

fresh, cheerful and free.

Used materials from Scrap FX

 I used the stencil with white modelling paste from DecoArt Media you get a flexible and paintable texture,

I only used the upper part of stencil, after drying I stamped on it.

Here inked with spray mists.

You can also write on this black card so you can get a handwriting effect the phrase was divided in two parts to create balance.

The beautiful corner is always perfect to frame a picture also in its original uncoloured state

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 And now for my second inspiration

 in a very romantic style with an adorable photo,

 which reminds me of wonderful days in my childhood, as I visit my grandparents.

 It was springtime and I’m a big lover of springtime flowers, so I was pleased

as I saw this awesome Magnolia branch chipboard.

 Used materials from Scrap FX:

Magnolia branch

I used chalkboard paints for a fine romantic character

 and added some little pearls in the centre for a 3D effect

Finally I added spray and splatters also to the black card phrase,

so it fits visually better into the whole spring layout design.

I hope you’ve enjoyed taking a look at some of products from Scrap FX.
If you’d like to see more, have a look through their store HERE

Many thanks for your visit!

Have a nice time!

Smaller Things Canvas

by Marie Johansson | Comments Off on Smaller Things Canvas

Hi – Marie from the north of Sweden here today. My plan for this months projects was to create Mother´s Day Cards. But as usual when I create nothing goes as I predicted… Instead I ended up making this canvas using the She corner & the Smallest Things black card piece.

 

I used a lot of textures like different sizes of beads, Glimmer Mists and crackle paste on the canvas base. This makes the chipboard and cardboard piece really pop. The “She” chippie was painted with Glimmer Glam from Tattered Angels which gives it a look similar to metal. I actually used very few items on this piece – beads (3 sizes/chipboard/cardboard/mist/two flowers/tulle & pebble stones). Hopefully it will be a appreciated gift on Mothers day.

 

Details:

I have used these products from Scrap FX:

  • 2017123 Smallest things phrace
  • 2017102 She corner

I hope I could inspire you today!

Best wishes from Marie

Imagine and Mum….. by Cindy Porter

by Cindy Porter | Comments Off on Imagine and Mum….. by Cindy Porter

Hi all, today I’d like to share with you my latest creations for Scrap FX…”Imagine and Mum”
First up I’d like to share an art journal spread “Imagine”
I had fun with loads of paint, pens, scribble sticks and paste creating this spread…
I used the Denise Stencil, isn’t it fabulous… I really love this stencil…
in the background I have used: the Petal Pattern Stencil, the Random Dot Stencil and the Scribble Script Stencil
I chose to use some of the words from the Imagine Phrase Stencil…. it really is quite a versatile stencil, when you think outside the square…
More stencil use on the background, here using the Moroccan Tile Stencil..
Again the Imagine Phrase Stencil

 

 

A last look at the individual pages….

 

Next up I have a layout to share “Mum”
A pic of mum on a flight to a retail event…. she always wore one side of her headphones off like that so she could hear me as well as whatever movie was playing…
I used the Liz & Sue Stencil large (there are two sizes of this stencil) to create images on my background…
this awesome stencil has both the the positive and negative forms …. so you can use it as both a stencil or a mask as I have done on this layout…
I framed my photo with the Butterfly Circle small – this frame is also available in a larger size…
isn’t it such a pretty frame…
To finish off my layout… I used an oldie for my title “mum-script

She…

by Anguree Jansen Van Rensburg | Comments Off on She…

Good morning dear friends

I am back on the blog today sharing 2 layouts using a variety of new and old products. With the focus of Mother’s day in May we had a bit of a “She” theme here at Scrap FX.

If I had to choose a favourite product of the month, it would defnitely be the She Phrases Transparency. I used it on 4 of my Design projects this month and still have a couple spare. So yes you will see me using them everywhere.

Scrap FX Products used

She Phrases Transparency

Barbwire boarder

Cogs mini

As you may know I love to use monochrome colours and this month I chose to add Kraft to the mix.

I started by laying out my chipboard onto my page deciding where each piece needed to go.

Next I coloured all my chipboard pieces with black Archival ink. As you can see I cut one of the pieces so I could “extend” it so to speak covering the gap with my photo.

Once the design was done it was easy. I simply matted my photo and layered my chosen chipboard pieces and adhered them to my background. All the transparency quotes were adhered using clear gel medium which ensures a smooth beautiful finish.

Daisy Flowers stencil

Dare to be different

She Phrases Transparency

This is a little different , even for me. You will note that though it is still simplistic it has a whole variety of different products. Sticking to the monochrome theme and altering my chipboard allowed me to still have a lot of white space and create a sense of balance across the page, despite the almost scattered look.

I started by creating a background using stamping, paint and stenciling daisies with molding paste using the Daisy Flowers stencil.

Next I coloured my chipboard with Archival ink and silver Alcohol ink. I did not want to use the frame as it was so decided to cut it up and use different sections of it across the focus area. This way the “She” does not only functions as a title but also as the start of the sentences in my journaling.

Again all the quotes were adhered using clear gel medium.

I hope you enjoyed this time with me today and will catch up with you again soon.

Please visit us again and leave us some love so we can see what you enjoy reading.

Also don’t forget to get your Design Team application in if you want to the fabulous opportunity to join us.

Till next time have fun.

Love & Happy Birthday – by Amelie

by Amelie Jutras | Comments Off on Love & Happy Birthday – by Amelie

Hello to you Scrap Fx Fans! Amelie with you today. I present 2 pages, to make me forgive for not being able to publish as agreed at the end of April.

To start, I present Love. I used a stencil and some chipboards.

 

For my second creation, I present Happy Birthday. I used some chipboards on which I put black gesso, then add Metallic Wax “Aged Brass” from Prima Marketing.

Thank you!

ATC’s in Vintage style

by Kerstin-Inga Peters | Comments Off on ATC’s in Vintage style

Welcome!

Kerstin here with a new inspiration for you.

 I recently discovered my passion for ATC’s.

It was new for me to work on such a small place.

 

 

I wasn’t sure if our chipboards are right for such a little size,

but how you can see at our very talented Scrap FX Teamies

 it’s possible 🙂 !!

and you are so many variants if you cut some of this pieces.

The only chipboard that I have used here

 

Seaweed Stem - Click Image to Close

Seaweed Stem

I was inspired from a dreamy world, little fairies and butterflies on a flowering meadow.

 I love the color combination brown and blue, the perfect team for a vintage style project.

Together with some cutouts from old photos and a wordphrase (Rub on transfer), some stamps for a background

and some pieces from a spiderweb (die) I created four little cards.

I embossed the whole chipboard with ‘Turqouise Shimmer’

 embossing powder (Emerald Creek Dares)

and then you can cut this beauty in so many little beauties parts.

Hopefully you will now feel even more inspired to create your own

  ATC’s – a wonderful idea, because they are can collected or traded,

and only need a small amount of space.

I really enjoyed working on mine!!!

Happy crafting!

Kerstin
