Making cards is the best ever way to use up your scraps. This was made almost entirely by using up off cuts from the kit. The only thing from my stash are the tiny alphas.
I have a soft spot for polka dots, I must admit. This Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm paper made me excited as you can imagine!
To set the base for my photos and decorations, I used two differents stamps (Kaisercraft, not with the kit) and black ink. On top of that I added a Crafter workshop stencil and a template from SODAlicoius (brackets). I love using leftovers, and for this page I did use two small pieces of paper that was left over when working with this kit. Then I built the bottom layer of my little “stack” of embellishments. The card was glued onto the cork tag, and then I added the chipboard frame last.
The pink and orange flowers doesn’t come with the kit, but they mix well with the Swagger buttons that does. The cork arrows was made by cutting pieces from the Little Yellow Bicycle Cork banners. The small details are the highlights in this page. With that I mean the washi tape from Freckled Fawn, the pink arrows from Studio Calico and the pink scrappers floss.
Hi Crazy Monday fans! The kits were all sent yesterday, so some of you will hopefully see your goodies today! In the meantime, here’s some inspiration from our June GDT Marie Johansson!
I used the spotty Humorous paper from the Fancy Pants Swagger collection for this page. The clouds on the top is a piece of the paper that had a little boy on it. I layered a piece of left over patterned paper and a baking tray paper under the photo of my cheerful son, to achieve a two dimensional effect.
The chipboard word “totally” fitted so well as titel, I just added the word cool with the Prima alphas on top of a chipboard banner. I added some yellow paint and stamps from my stash, as well as cut out stars and cork board & arrow pieces to keep the page fun and playful.
At first when I found scrapbooking to be my new hobby, it was the colored and patterned papers that drew my attention. Then I started loving layering and now I´m a complete mess….
I love playing around with paint, gesso and different mist/spray paints. I build layers with the different mediums and papers, journaling cards, stamping and other decorations. Even though I mess up my pages pretty bad, I try to keep some sort of structure of it all.
I currently design for a online magazine called Allt om Scrap, and also for Punky Scraps, The Color Room and Scrap & Music.
I am really looking forward to my new creative adventure and hope that I can bring some inspiration back to you viewers.
