(you've done it again)
Above were the colours to use in your layout for last fortnights colour challenge. Sally you've done a great job, right down to the clothing that James is wearing. What a gorgerous wee fella to use in your layouts. Well done! I will be in touch with your $20 voucher.
You have until Sunday 11th October to email your finished layout to email@example.com.
Good luck and have a great week.
I have used THREE base colours and I have THREE major embellishments (the vine, the tree and the word believe). You may not be able to see this detail, but I have also used three red pearls on the flowers of the vine.
This rule can also apply to a card. So lets take a look.
Notice how I have used three satin flowers in a cluster, plus again I have three major elements (the bunch of flowers, the circle embellishment and the tag,) and each draws the eye to the next element. Not so obvious is the colour combo that I have used. (the blue, fawn and the white of the vellum.) There is also the three different embellishments, (the flowers, ribbon and button).
This rule however does not always apply, but it is usual to use ODD numbers of elements. So five will work too.
So I have come up with this little number using the Tis the Season line of papers from Bo Bunny
I used every last scrap of paper for this project and I made full use of the patterns in the paper and the sheet of tags, that it was not necessary to use very many embellishments. I have used the Blackboard Album from Cosmo Cricket, then stamped, inked, made pockets and flaps for messages and photos. I finished it all off with some co-ordinating ribbon, which I have tied around the album ring. I just love the bright cheery colours, reminiscent of a summer Christmas. (Even though I have stamped it with snowflakes-Oh well)
Hope you are having a great week:) I will try to post the Thursday Top Tip on time again this week.
This is what I have come up with using the new December Journal from Websters Pages as well as the new Glazed Holly Flourish Cardstock for the tree. The papers also match well with my own stash of papers from Basic Grey's Wassail range. Here on this layout I have used the cardstock sticker elements from that range and the alphabet stickers. I have cut out the word believe from cardstock using the Silhouette and then used dimensional magic and glitter to highlight the word. These papers don't need a lot of embellishments as they speak for themselves and seems a shame to cover it all up. I have finished the page off with red pearls from KaiserCRAFT.
Now to the sneak peak of what I am working on using the new papers from Bo Bunny's 'Tis the Season'
Create a 12x12 layout with the title '5 things I do with Dad' and as an added twist...create a card from your paper scraps from this layout. You have until this Sunday the 13th to email your creations to firstname.lastname@example.org
Good Luck and happy scrappin'
$20 voucher for the winning layout & card. Looking forward to seeing your creations.
Chalk inks are archival, acid-free, and fast-drying, and they give a soft look. You can use them on wood, leather, paper, and more! You can heat-set chalk inks to enhance the permanence. These are great for distressing your papers and using background stamps along with regular stamping. The inking surface is usually a sponge.
Dye inks are water-based and are permanent once they are stamped on papers. This is a great general-purpose ink that can be used on all types of papers and is great for everyday stamping and scrapbooking. Dye-base inks will fade over time.
Pigment inks are wonderful to use on clay, mica, wood, paper, shrink plastic, and more. Pigment inks are thick and fade-resistant. The inking surface is usually a sponge because it is thicker and distributed better over a sponge. They are also archival and acid-free, and are perfect for embossing!
StazOn inks are acid-free, archival, and dry within three to five minutes. StazOn is perfect for surfaces such as transparencies, vellum, glass, tile, metal, plastic, and more!
VersaMark is a clear pigment ink, and is great for watermarking or embossing.

Some of the new flowers from Prima got loaded and sold in the first day! They are gorgerous in spots or gingham. Not all of the Christmas papers have arrived. They should be here by the end of this month or maybe October. Start planning and then when the papers arrive you will still have plenty of time to get organized for Christmas. Check out the "Beyond the Page" section in the shop. There are some new albums that could make great presents.
Below is a great range of papers for boys by Bo Bunny. Pages with journalling cards, three of the papers have stars on the back and all co-ordinate well together. Some of the words are: Super Hero - Play Hard - Get Dirty - 100% Boy. They will make some awesome layouts for the boys in your life.
I couldn't not include a photo of the Webster's Pages. They are gorgerous. They are from the Nature's Storybook range and have lovely scenes on them. Butterfly, birds and journalling lines. All double side and quite a heavy paper. Great value for money.
For a gloss finish to your chipboard lightly sand, then paint and cover in Dimensional Magic.
Rhinestones - are an easy & affordable way to add sparkle to any page.
Try using Dimensional Magic as glue. It will stick most things that can be a little fiddly, such as beadwork.
