I love new tools that make it easier to create! So when I got my new pair of Fringe Scissors, I knew I had to try some fun new projects. So the easiest place to start is from Stampin' Up! youtube channel which has several videos of fun ideas to try. Check out this video on how to make 3D flowers! Which one is your favorite?
At my April 3D Gifts class, we'll be making the flower using the fringe scissors to add to the top of a gift box! Join us to try this fun technique!
My last post demonstrated how you could color your Designer Series Paper (or decorated 12x12 scrapbook paper).
This post features how to color other kinds of paper, such as specialty paper. I just got the new Sheer Perfection Vellum stack free during Sale-A-Bration and used Pear Pizzazz and Pool Party markers to color. Put it in front of a piece of white paper and the butterflies pop! The sentiment is from the free You Brighten My Day stamp set. There is always something to be thankful for!
Check out this video to see how to color vellum and pre-embossed paper for a fun look!
Here's a quick and easy technique to step up your card projects! Using a marker, add color to scrapbook paper to easily match the colors in your project. So here, I have a card using Wild Wasabi and Calypso Coral colors. I lined the envelope using Back to Black Designer Series Paper and Envelope Liner Framelit Dies. Then, I used my Wild Wasabi and Calypso Coral markers to color in a few of the images and now the card matches the envelope! Easy!
This week, I crafted with some new friends at Palette & Paper, an adorable creative space in Fortville, Indiana. The owner was hosting a Project Life Meet Up and I figured it was time to crack out my supplies and try it. Not sure what the focus of the album is going to be yet, I grabbed a stack of old pictures.
Since we spent most of the night talking and checking out the shop, I didn't accomplish much, but I did produce this page in about five minutes!
I simply chose some pictures, cropped them with the coordinating dies, slid them in the album, and done! Granted, I did not do any journaling or embellishments on this page, I am liking this!
Then, I picked a couple Project Life cards to finish off the page.
I chose two from the free set available now during Sale-A-Bration. Check it out in the video below.
And if I ever wanted to go back and make a page in the traditional way,
full 12x12 Page Protectors are available.
Now, I just need to figure out what will be the subject of this album. I am thinking I might try a random, creative focus for all the extra pictures I take! Excited to get started!
