Most of the Scrap FX items are old ones, but they fit perfectly with this denim challenge, don’t you think?

Item used:
Sketchy Stars,
Weekdays Cards,

I hope you enjoyed it and that you’re know considering entering the challenge 🙂

ATC Love

by Anguree Jansen Van Rensburg | Comments Off on ATC Love

Hello dear friends

I’m back on the blog today sharing a quick tutorial on ATC’s . Yes they are really addictive, but how could you not use these awesome new chippies from Scrap FX? The new collection is absolutely gorgeous and these mini words and hearts are just perfect for the task.

Scrap Fx products used:

Heart Flowers Mini

#love

First I cut my 2.5 x 3.5 ” cards and also a coordinating panel measuring 2.25 x 3.25″.  I adhered the top panel to the bottom panel by layering a smaller piece of chipboard in between the layers of each card for added texture.

Next I added some Tim Holtz Tissue Paper and 7Dots Studio Stickers and black lace.

The next step was to add some matte soft gel medium and Prima Artstones in two different sizes.

(Tip: It’s best to let this dry properly prior to continue working on it.)

I added Red and Orange Lindy’s sprays in combination with some Colour blast Shimmer Powder and dried it with a heat tool.

As always i got my trusty silver Alcohol Ink  Mixatives with which I coloured all my chipboard embellishments. All the embellishments were layered into clusters using tulle, and flowers that suited the  colour scheme.

Last but not least I added orange glass glitter.

I hope you enjoyed this time with me and that you will join us again for more inspiration by my fellow design team members.

All my love

by Cindy Porter | Comments Off on I want to grow old with you….. by Cindy Porter

Hi everyone today I am sharing a layout I created with the new Scrap FX products, “I want to grow old with you“….
Scrap FX have done a bit of a love theme with this latest release…

I really loved these new release products, and matching them up with a black and white pic of Bill and I let me add my fave colours to the chipboard pieces…

I used the Celebration of Hearts chipboard to enhance the layout…. don’t you just love it… a fabulous pretty piece…

I added some of the amazing Radiant Gels through the newBrocade Lace Stencil…. doesn’t it look amazing,,,, such shine and colour….

Another pack from this release is the #love pack there are some awesome words in this pack…. I chose to use the #ourstory on this layout…

My title for the layout….. I love this saying….  “I want to grow old with you” ….

For the final touches I added a couple of the arrows out of the Wifey& Hubby set, I loved this pack too….

Celebrating Love and Marriage……..new products!

by admin | Comments Off on Celebrating Love and Marriage……..new products!

With Valentines Day just gone, love is still in the air and the Design Team is playing with new products to scrap your loved ones, be it weddings, anniversaries, or just because of love.

We have a gorgeous array of hearts, Damask and Tartan:

Damask Heart A LARGE Wire & LaceDamask Heart B LARGE BrocadeDamask Heart C LARGE open lace

Tartan Heart A MurrayTartan Heart B TudorTartan Heart C Stewart

and my favourite, Celebration of Hearts:

Celebration of Hearts

This one can stand alone with just a wipe of an inkpad, but can be further embellished with bling and stamping:

This layout also uses the new “To have and to hold” wordlet, Black Lace and the larger Brocade Lace stencil:

Black Lace    To Have & To Hold

The new mini titles make embellishing your photo so easy, including two transparencies with fun descriptions, a couple of flourishes, definitions, wedding word frame and heartfelt phrases:

Hubby & Wifey set       Bride & Groom transparency   Wedding transparency

  Mr & MrsMrs & MrsMr & Mr

#love

There are also lots of larger titles that make that finishing touch a breeze:

The NewlywedsForever Mine Eternal Love

Heartfeld Happiness Beautiful Bride   Togetherness

*****

This modern layout was quickly put together with torn pieces of paper and embellished simply with the new Heart Border stamp,  Heart Flower Frame and #me&you from the #love pack and of course the “Forever Mine” title, a few splashes of paint and it was done!  Easy!

And one final project that has nothing to do with love, an art journal page featuring the Brocade Lace Stencil.   Other Scrap FX products:  Clockface Gears,  Vocational Transparency and String of Arrows.

Well I hope you are inspired to get those wedding photos out and have a play!

Until next month…….have fun!

Puppy love & Family Time – by Amelie

by Amelie Jutras | Comments Off on Puppy love & Family Time – by Amelie

Hello Scrap FX friends! Amelie with you today.  I want to share with you my 2 new wonderfuls projects. Unfortunately, again this month, the postman took a long time to bring me my new chipboards. So I worked with old chipboards.

My first layout “Puppy Love”. My daughter loves her dog! Albert made oartis of the family for a little more than 5 years, and all 2, they are inseparable.

For this page, I used Art deco stencil with texture paste. I added spray inks and cotton cheese before adding my papers.

I use the chipboard “Puppy love”, “#Pets” and “Heart & Paw”.

*********

For my second creation, I used a rare family photo. And as on almost all our rare family photos, impossible to keep our serious!

For this page, I used the chipboard “Family time” which I colored with a magical powder from Lindy’s Stamp Gang. I also used “Dreamer frame” as well as “French” which I left natural.

I also used “Filmstrips Transparency”.

Thank you!
Amélie

Slope Style Layout

by Marie Johansson | Comments Off on Slope Style Layout

Greetings from the North of Sweden! Today I´m sharing a layout that celebrate our family´s love of downhill skiing. I have been working with the Skiers & the Imagine Phrase Stencil, that both fits perfect for this project.

I built my page on a plain white cardstock that I added water colors and strips of leftover papers to. Then stamped on with black ink before I applied the Imagine Phrase. To do that I simply drew with a Marker in the cut words. Easy pacey – just be sure that your background is completely dry before you start – otherwise the marker will bleed.

As you can see the chipboard skiers has a paint structure to them. I made that by adding layers of paint with my finger tip – like dry brushing with a finger. I choose the colors to be a bit 80´s – the grand era of down hill skiing (slalom as we call it) for my partner and I….


A couple of black round acrylic circles add more structure to the page. And I love how it looks like the skiers actually ski on the page itself.

Sadly there is not snow here right now so we only dream of going down that hill…

I have used these Scrap FX products:

  • 2014241 Skiers
  • 2017016 Imagine Phrase Stencil

Thanks for stepping by today!

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:

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

Have a nice Tuesday.

“Dreamer” canvas with Irina Gerschuk

by Irina Gerschuk | 1 Comment

Hi my friends!
It’s Irina Gerschuk with you today and I’d like to share with you my new canvas 30×30. I’ve created it in a junction of mixed-media, shabby and boho styles.On the photo is my younger sister:

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:

Thank you for stopping by!
Have a lovely day))
