Everything ABC’s Letter B – Birthday!

abc bloghopWelcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter B. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their # element will be featured in their post. If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda’s blog ~ Scrappy Therapy If you came from Stephanie Feist-then you’re on the right track!


 Your Birthday is supposed to be fun right? Mine is in MAY, and this is my May Calendar page!

 

Bis for Birthday

B is for Birthday

If you have been following the blog you will know I have been working on a Calendar project. I am up to June – but wish to share with you up close and personal my May Page, since on good advice (as above)  I plan to celebrate my birthday all month long! Right now I am into colour – and lots of it (usually I am an earthy neutrals girl unless it is red and purple…that is different!) ; and I am into finding those mantra’s and sayings that will lift me up in 2015. This is a gem!

My bestie Sandra shared this pinspiration – ‘Start each day like it is your Birthday’ with me but I have had a bit of a time locating it so pinned it myself.  The timing of her sharing this with me was impeccable. I loved the design and it’s colours. I so totally had to scraplift this one for my May page. My finidshed art work is not the same but is deeply inspired by that  pin..  I cannot give you more than the original artists website – Sketcherella – the orginal image is gone – but the pinned image remains. (go figure….)

SO…Hopscotch was the obvious paper palette choice. I had a bit of white card stock as my base about 5 x 7.  It turned out not big enough to carry birthday so I did it completely separate and trimmed it back a bit from there when done.I have used quite a number of the Close To My Heart Alphabet sets listed below, as well as the awesome new Brushstrokes stamp set C1608 (love this one completely!)  If I had it I would also have incorporated Framework Alphabet E1027. The H in Birthday is from a little M stamp that is NLA (M1030). I just stamped it without the bow and cut it up the middle. The current retiring ‘HI’ stamp would work too. I deliberately mixed up colours and stamp sets here – you do need to play and do your thing with this! My T in birthday (thanks again to inspiration from Sandra) is topped with a gift and candles all from the Build a Cake Stamp Set D1618  There is a bit of Circus Alphabet and Washi Wonder in there – all limited edition stamps from our previous catalog. (Just goes to show Host Rewards and Stamps of the Month really are spesh! Ask your onsultant – I promise they will be thrilled to tell you all about it!) ) Once all the lettering was done on the main piece I smudged colours into the background with my sponge and stamped the brushstrokes shapes into places they fit using different colours from the hopscotch palette.

Letters that needed colouring were coloured with watercolour pencils. Those which were also being fussy cut were given a lift by first spreading liquid glass onto them and allowing them to dry.  TIP – Do all the letters you intend to liquid glass on on one piece of card stock- liquid glass them all. Fussy cut when dry. I tried the other way and it is messy, requires tweezers and….yep not a good result. My repeat effort with one sheet, letting them all dry then cutting them was much better. You CAN cut dry liquid glass….it is not rock hard 🙂 It’s nice n flexible on paper.

I mounted the completed saying piece onto lagoon and this went on the Hopscotch background. I used a scrap of the reverse of Hopscotch as a strip to support the word birthday and added a flash of bling with Teal Shimmer trim Z1918. A 4.5 inch wide strip of Lagoon is there ready for Birthday photos and the added labels are a sneak peek of a Stamp of the Month that is coming for you in May.

I think that covers it. I used my stash, I used alphasets, I used lots of colour, and now in May I will be encouraged to celebreate each day as if it is my Birthday – on one of those days it will be!

Everything ABC’s Letter A is for Australia Day

abc bloghop

 

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop! For this hop we will be featuring the letter A. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their # element will be featured in their post. If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda’s blog ~ Scrappy Therapy If you came from “Pam Trostle ~ Pam’s Crafty Creations –  then you’re on the right track!


 

A is for Australia Day

I just had to do something for Australia Day and this layout is in anticipation of attending the local Australia Day Breakfast, or joining a family and friends down the river for a BBQ somewhere. I have featured the Celebrate Australia Stamp set using the Australia Title, fireworks and flag. I love his stamp!

 

20150102_220157

Page Layout began with Inspiration from Magic p34. I have used the wonderful Fundamentals papers and the awesome new White Shimmer Trim.

Celebrate Australia D1640

I live in the country so this page is also the closest I will get to fireworks on Australia Day.  I am sure if you can witness fireworks in the Cities some lovely snaps would go well with this page! I also believe if you happen to have a green and gold Australia Day just switch our the Blue, Red and Silver and replace with green and gold and try colouring that white shimmer trim with either bright green or bright yellow. I would love to see a Green and Gold variation!

 

Here are some of the details from the page

Celebrate Australia D1640

I stamped the flag with our two step stamp using Outdoor Denim then Cranberry. I then embossed it with clear embossing powder. To put it on a paper clip I painted the clip with red nail enamel and adhered it to the flag when dry.

 

australia detail1

For the Australia Sections I used first and second generation stamping. Watch the tendency to wander off on an angle rather than a straight line – I was regularly correcting this will stamping. The stars were done in Cranberry and Outdoor Denim and then I wet embossed in silver in a random fashion.

australia detail

The title Australia Day was cut with Artfully Sent Alphabet using Cricut Craftroom to move the letters together and put them on a slant to match my celebrte which came from another cartridge in my stash. I added some of the fireworks from the stamp set and used foam tape to give dimension.

 

I really love our paper Fundamentals range. It adds texture and a completely new feel to our pages, it cuts very well with the cricut and coordinates well with our other palettes. You will need Bonding Memories glue for bedt result with adhesion due to the finish on the shiny side of these papers.

Shopping list – All these Close To My Heart items are available for purchase online at my store The Creative Heart.

Everything ABC’s Letter Z

abc bloghopWelcome to everything ABC’S blog Hop.

For this hop we will be featuring the letter Z. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their # element will be featured in their post.

If you came from Catherine Nowak ~ Catscrapbooking.com Catscrapping you are in the right place. For a full list of hoppers hop onto Scrappy Therapy

I will be back to edit later but I am about to ship off and enjoy a family Xmas dinner.  I am caught short of time in the lead up to Christmas.  My Letter Z is for Zócalo and our products that start with the code letter z including embossing folders.


 

Did you know we can emboss 12 inches worth of cardstock? In this layout I have used the Damask Embossing Folder Z1994

Damask Embossing Folder

To emboss for this page I cut 4 inch x 12 inch strips. I embossed the first section, slid the card through the slot and embossed the rest. Pattern matching was a little difficult with this folder and did not really matter. With other folders pattern matching 1/2 inch ensures a smooth transition in your second run through the embossing machine.

Peek a Boo I see you – more detail is hidden under the flap:) You can see here where I have adhered the sticky strip.

 

20141219_175734

This is how it all sits in the album.

 

 

I have used the Floral embossing folder Z1994. I have also used Flip Flaps Z1325, an essential addition to any album doing lots if photos of one day or event. I had been having Flip Flap withdrawals as I had done 3 layouts, all unfinished as I am totally out of 6 x 4 flip flaps. I was really happy to get this one finished as I still had some of my 12 inch assortment to use! I used Pear and New England Ivy Card Stock and Exclusive Inks.  The whole layout is in our lovely tough and durable Page Protectors Z1968 and housed in one of our brand new Post Bound Albums Z2094. I LOVE this new albm. It is so easy to put together with the little lift up thingy on the screw and it feels super strong. Did you know the flap over the screw is magnetised so it won’t flap about?

I have done some stamping on this page. I secondary stamped a flourish from Inspriational Flourishes C1581, the Butterfly from Brushed WOTG Stamp set G1087 and Picture this is from Believe In Yourself C1574. Deal of the Decade is still on if you are keen on these stamps.I kept the layout and embellishing really simple because the photos tell muchof the story in this part of my album.

Have fun! Have a safe and Merry Christmas.

Everything ABC’s Letter Y

abc bloghop

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter Y. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their # element will be featured in their post. If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda’s blog ~ Scrappy Therapy. If you came from Catherine Nowak ~ Catscrapbooking.com ~ you are in the right place. 


 

For My Y project it was easy to punce on Yuletide Carol x7187b. Yay!  We have a specific product with a letter for the hop! I do hope you enjoy the way I have used this lovely paper.

It is almost Christmas and we are almost done with our Christmas crafting opportunities (yes we should be that organised….if only!)  but I had to share this really cute one sheet bag with you! No Cutting required!!!

yuletide carol bag

 

This can be used at ANY time of the year with any pretty paper you have. I took the idea from a number of you tube videos – but the one by Kelly Gettlefinger is the one I chose to follow for its clear instructions. Once I did one, I could do many.

Here are my variations from the dimensions and directions given. 

  • I scored 1/2 inch to fold over the top edge taking advantage of our double sided B and T papers to trip the top edge before doing anything else
  • When she folds ‘in’ to the 6 inch mark – I actually score at 3 inches to do this folding in – and it is scored opposite the first step.
  • When she scores at 5 inches and 7 inches I did 4 1/2, rotate 180  and score at 41/2. There are two reasons – 4 1/2 is because I used 1/2 for the turn down on the top and flip for the second score because our CTMH scroeboard is sized to 6 inches.
  • Please crease this fold – it does help with the next step. I like it creased all the way – it is up to you.
  • Once you reach that point in the video watch carefully – what she shows you is easier than me trying to describe it. However it is easier to do with the paper vertically placed in front of you. Pay attention 3 minutes into this video – watch what happens and you will soon be able to do it yourself.

Here is the video by  Kelly Gettelfinger

My  Verbal directions for students go like this:

  1. Remove the zip strip. Determine the  top and bottom edges. Score these at 1/2 inch and fold the desired trim forward. Stick this down with bonding memories glue. Now with that edge against the top side of the Score Board (so you have now rotated the whole thing 90 degrees) score at 3 inches. Rotate 180 degrees and score the second line of 3 inches.
  2. Take the paper to your table and fold in at the 3 inch marks so the sides meet in the middle.
  3. Now while this is folded – back to the scoring board you go. With the longest edge running across the top of the score board score at 4 1/2 inches. (The video says 5 – but we have used 1/2 inch for our trim!) Rotate 180 degrees (aka flip) score at 4 1/2 inches again.
  4. Now back to a nice flat surface. Open it all out and give those 4 1/2 inch scores a bit of a crease to make the next step easier.
  5. Turn the paper, fold it on the 3 inch lines and place it lengthwise to you. Press one finger in a scored corner (4 1/2 inch line). Use the other hand to bring the folded score line from the middle out and parallel to the edge. Crease inside. Repeat for all four corners. ‘Push out, push in and press’….(Video)
  6. We are going to push the sides in and pinch it – just as it is in the video. I describe this as ‘push it in the back and pinch it’. Keep it even at the sides and it will look nice.
  7. You bag will almost stand now. You can glue the 3 inch folds down along the top edge and I prefer you do the inner corners too or your lovely purse will flop open and not look pretty. A little glue between this gusset and the front and back will hold the bag in a nice shape and voila you have a bag without any cutting!
  8.  Decorate to your hearts content. I used a standard single hole punch to thread wide ribbon through as my handles. You could use cord, you could also loop ribbon over from the back to a button or toggle in the front. You can ad an additional flap as seen int he video. All mine at done just with ribbon from my stash.  Check your stash and use what is there!

Decoration

Cricut flores mounted

I chose to decorate my Yuletide Carol bag with black accents at first. I started with the trendy Eiffel Tower from Artfully Sent. I also cut the Silhouette lady but ended up leaving that out. My flowers are a mix of all sorts from what I now call my flower basket. I have mounted these onto a piece of card some time ago – they fit this project just right. Each flower and leaf is cut from either Art Philosophy or Artiste in a variety of shades of cardstock. I have used spray pens and liquid glass in making them. I added tht little bit fo glam with the black shimmer trim and some bling gems. Finally I tucked in the sentiment just for you from Novembers Stamp of the Month. (NLA)

Close To My Heart Products used in this project are available to order from www.thecreativeheart.ctmh.com.au 

Please have a go at this quick easy bag! You do not need to make flowers to go on it – a simple fussy cut stamp, some buttons, bows or ribbons will do. It has been a real hit with my team and customers and is a lovely way to use up some of your stash for gift giving in any season! I hope you have enjoyed this post and will come visit again.

PS You can make a ruffle just like on the bag in the video by wetting 1/ to 1 inch of your B and T or card stock. Don’t be afraid to get it wet it is quite strong at this width. Gently crumple if desired then unravel. Now place it on your all purpose craft mat or other non stick surface. Mold it into the ruffle shape you want. You can use pins and mini pegs for supports to hold wet paper up if need be. leave dry over night. It is ready to be glued onto your bag. Too easy!

Everything ABC’s Blog Hop Wildwood and Wanderful!

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!

abc bloghop

For this hop we will be featuring the letter W. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their # element will be featured in their post. If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda’s blog ~ Scrappy Therapy  If you came from there  then you’re on the right track!


 

Welcome to Wildwood and Wanderful!

I will be honest I was almost as indecisive about which of the two products I am currently using to feature for W as I was about pushing the ‘buy now’ on my air tickets that would whisk me off on my fab seven week trip of a life time to Mexico and Disneyland USA for the CTMH Convention!

Would I share with you Wanderful PML Pages and cards, or would I share my Wildwood Z2001 My Crush Book  Journal – a journal that is much more lovely when you open it than it looks in our Idea book?

Wildwood

PicsArt_1414663483596

 

The Wildwood My Crush Book has journal prompts, fabulous textures, loads of distressed pages and more. I loved it as soon as I saw the title page which I am sharing with you here, and I urge you to check out more than just the pages shown in the Idea Book. I decided to use the blank back of the cover for a few Wanderful PML cards to offer some of the back story to my trip. The card ‘just GO’ says it all! The title page ‘And so it starts….” is a sound beginning to this little story.

PicsArt_1414665999264

PicsArt_1414663270627

 

My first double page is about the decision to go and a little reflection about a regular day on the street in Mexico City. I used Wanderful cards for the journalling and of course in these kinds of journals we are supposed to break the rules….so while one page has a matted photo (Tres traditional)  the other has this rather odd angled one. I also used the Black Arrow Washi tape and will probably use this throughout as the Arrows are a feature of the Wanderful Paper and PML cards.

Wanderful

My album is well underway, but I am still in week one! I love to journal and make sure every key thought, idea and reflection is captured too. I also have to remind myself ‘not every photo needs to be scrapped’. But journaling is different. I have it everywhere! My students and my team will agree I do not think we are done as scrapbookers unless we are journalling too. Let’s face it, I do not expect to be around forever to tell my grandchildren who everyone is in the photos, and what we were doing, thinking and celebrating.So…let’s make journalling FUN!! and SUPER EASY!

CTMH have the solution for us with the Picture My Life Product Range bringing Journalling cards in products like Wanderful PML. Almost every card in this set lends itself to story telling, making it a very different set to say Chantilly or Pear and Partridge which have a few more decorative elements and lend themselves more readily to card making too.

PicsArt_1414663751356

So, let’s move on to my scrapbook page. I really did not quite know how to scrap these photos. The photos are from different times of the day, all of the same place, the Zocalo (City Square). Red was the predominant colour. I just loved the Wanderful PML card that said ‘This is what the world looks like‘ as I landed in Mexico City right in the middle of a Cultural festival. The Zocalo was a tent city, each tent representing countries around the world, including Australia. So It really was an ‘around the world’ in a day experience and even included a UK red Double Decker Bus!.

PicsArt_1414663671594

The cards I chosen have a sentiment that reflects how I felt, just wanting to ‘roam’ as I did on this day. They gave me the way to not put every photo on the page (yes that is a flip flap stack right there with 5 photos)  – just a representation of the day. This was easy peasy journalling and made a difficult to coordinate page an easy scrapbook layout! I still think it needs a bit more but I am armed with arrow washi tape and believe that will do the trick.

PicsArt_1414663622834

The stamped embellishments are from the Wanderful Workshop on the Go Stamp Set and Here we Go D1600. I used the same colours that are in the Wanderful PML Cards – Cranberry, Flaxen and Black. I am totally in love with the mini notebook stamp and it features already on many pages in this album.

BTW The pockets in the album are the strap hinge ones as I am stash scrapping as I complete these pages and they do a fab job to fill albums I already had on hand. I am loving CTMH Memory Protectors and their durable quality!

D1600Here We Go

 

Wanderful PML

Oh I Almost forgot!!! Up until now these collections came with a title page and plastic pockets. Talk to your consultant about the A La Carte version of PML – no title or pocket pages. That way using them like this does not leave you with 10 empty pocket pages! For Australian Consumers the A La Carte code is for Wanderful is Z3063

You can purchase the products used in the layout and My Crush book online at my store. Be sure to join my November Online Gathering to be in the draw for host rewards.

Everything ABC’s Letter V is for Volcanic

abc bloghop

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop! For this hop we will be featuring the letter V This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their V element will be featured in their post. If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda’s blog ~ Scrappy Therapy. If you came from “Lauren Moore – CTMH Craftings”  then you’re on the right track!


Hello and welcome to a small piece of my personal Scrapbooking world. I am a lover of mixed media and like to dabble in it from time to time. Choosing a V project isn’t easy but I have settled on this page that illustrates the fabulous Sun Pyramid, the largest structure in the Ancient City of Teotihuacan in Mexico. It is my V project because of the presence of coarse red volcanic rock which I have attempted to symbolise in the background art work on this page.
I first visited Mexico in 1979 as a child. I was an exchange student and at the mercy of host families to see the country. The day I was brought to visit these pyramids we found them closed. (I suspect that family knew little about them!) I dreamed of a return to Mexico, and promised myself that if I ever did I would go to the Sun and Moon Pyramid. Fast forward 35 years here I am on the Street of the Dead with the Sun Pyramid in the background! Volcanic rock heaven!!! I could not walk the street due to sciatica but I was there….right there…at last!
volcano texture

The Sun Pyramid of Teotihuacan. This page is presented in the Black Designed Decor Black Shadow Box frame It just makes the page even more stunning. I love how I can quickly pop pages in and out of these frames!

The pyramid rises 216 feet (66 metres) above ground level, and it measures approximately 720 by 760 feet (220 by 230 metres) at its base. It was constructed of about 1,000,000 cubic yards (765,000 cubic metres) of material, including hewed tezontle, a red, coarse volcanic rock of the region. (Read More about this fascinating landmark here).  Obsidian, a Volcanic Glass is also present in the ruins.

I have created this page in the following way:

  • Base 12 x 12 Slate cardstock
  • Overlay with Texture paste. I used the V shape of the overlay in the Sugar and Spice Key of artbooking page 80 and a knife to lay down this shape to reflect the steps of the pyramid. Allow this to dry well.
  • I used bubble wrap technique to add some spots for the round rocks evident in the stone work. I simply painted the wrap with gesso and pressed it onto the paper in places around the dried texture paste. Focus on ares that will not be hidden by the photo.
  • Smudge it all up! I used ink pads direct on the texture paste and in places of the spots. I used the sponge to add more and rub edges. I have not completely eliminated the slate grey background. I have used Slate, Cocoa, Chocolate and Barn Red inks to achieve the overall look. If you do this it will look different – it is the process rather than the outcome that is repeatable!
  • The next step is to rehearse the placement of the photos and mixed media embellishment pieces. These flowers and the champagne bottle button were from my stash. The Jute Ribbon is a product NLA from CTMH. The chain is a piece of a Base and Bling Faux Gold chain. Chain looks great on pages! Just snip a bit off with pliers!. These items are all quite deliberately grouped in the bottom right corner and help to tell the story. The hessian has the harsh texture of cloth from the time, the chiffon symbolises the wealth of the priveleged who lived here, the flowers represent Roses, a national symbol of Mexico, the bottle of bubbles my celebration for finally being there and the chain marks the sections of the city protected and still to be excavated.
  • If the eye is lost it can follow the stamped signs which are from different stamp sets. Here we Go D1600 and D1622 Wanderful WOTG set as well as A1160 All the details NLA (Host reward) Stamped embellishments are in Barn Red on Colobial White, smudged with Desert sand to age them out.
  • I adhered the photos to Kraft and Barn Red cardstock as a mount and used foam tape to stick it to the base. There is also a bit of Slate Washi Tape tucked in there.
  • Liquid glass is my best friend for sticking everything else down.

I am so pleased the Pyramids are all now under the good care of Authorities and are being properly investigated by archaeologists and historians. I am truly grateful to have had the opportunity to be gobsmacked, up close and personal with the pyramids and bringing a dream to reality!

What is really fun about mixed media is no page is ever the same. Sometimes you can start with a sketch, sometimes the photo, as was the case here. As long as you can tie it all together with a colour, a theme, and can clustering of embellishments it will work for you.

Here is a list of Current products used in this project. You can shop online at Jen’s Creative Classroom and have it delivered right to your door.

Everything ABC’s Letter U -Umbrella, uninked….

abc bloghop

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter U. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their U element will be featured in their post. If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda’s blog ~ Scrappy Therapy 

If you came from “Wendy Kessler My Scrapbooking Blog ” then you’re on the right track!


 

U is for Umbrella, uninked and unavailable!

There are not many U words or elements I can think of so I struggled to find a U that would be unique for you today. I decided on this Umbrella as I was preparing for my Girls Night In Fundraising event.which I call ‘Inky Pinky’ and we work with pink products from Close To My Heart. I could also have called this post uninked…as there is no stamping here at all! I also used some of my leftovers from kits that are now unavailable which of course is doing as we should using my stash.

For this years Girl’s Night In event all my guests are getting a selection of Chantilly PML Z1949 cards and the challenge to make a layout with them. One of those cards is the umbrella card with the sentiment ‘Let’s Dance in the rain‘ I have used in the layout below. It was my focal point around which I selected everything else.

I really like the sentiment and a few of the others I have placed on this double page spread. I love ‘Don’t forget to be AWESOME‘ and ‘Adventure Awaits the Daring Girl.‘ I have fussy cut some of the birds too. This layout has what I consider key elements – spots for photos and places to journal, and a bit of decoration and inspiration. It just needs the photos!

PicsArt_1412912730109

I now have the challenge of TAKING photos for a page I have already prepared! (Isn’t that familiar?) Photos in the rain…having fun! Probably with pink roses or a bra or two showing!!! Who knows, but I will do my best to find an awesome photo opportunity. (Easier said than done in an area that only gets a few inches of rain a year!)

Picture My Life cards do make great quick and easy to finish scrapbook pages. I hope you have been inspired by this one. The pink Ribbon icon is cut from the Artbooking Z1906 J key using Pink Glitter PaperZ1922. I love the way our glitter paper cuts! Use the settings heavy card stock and cut twice to ensure you get right through. The zipper lace is no longer available and I have used up leftover Lolly Doodle papers on this layout.

Shopping List – For the products used in this layout and more the online store is open 24/7

 

Don’t forget this month we have Free Ribbon with an order over $60 AU and you have an awesome Stamp of the Month for Just $5 with order of $75 AU or more. Read more here.
