Hello our blog fans. Today I would like to show you the first page – cover of my album.  Simple and easy to use. I kept it in a simple way cause it is a project made for my photography school. I will add there pictures from photo session  and some other information about “The Angel”  – a literary fairy tale  by Hans Christian Andersen.

Album

I used a lovely paper from the “Vintage Romance” and “Vintage Summer” collections.  Angel from Prima and chipboards from Scrapiniec. Some laces, flowers. I tried to make it nice and elegant.

It is a little bit unusual project but I love to combine scrapbooking with other projects. Show to other people  the opportunity, ideas how we can use the paper in a different way . Hope you will like my project. Hugs, Paulina :*

Hi there! I hope February has been good to you so far. When it is cold outside I dream about Summer:) And here is a card for you with the lovely Vintage Summer Basics collection.

Vintage-Summer-Basics-P

I will give you the list of the papers used at the end of this post. But first some more photos of my card. As you can see I have a round window in the front.

And I have also made a belt to keep the card together. The paper lace is made with a die from Magnolia called Swedish lace.

Out to the left I have used a punch called Word Window Punce on the Maja paper. The leaf circle is made with a Magnolia die and the pink flowers with a Small Retro Flower punch. And Tilda is coloured in colours that match the lovely Maja papers.

I have stamped the text directly on to the pattern paper. It is from Stempelglede. As you can see I have sewed the papers, and inked the edges with Distress Ink pad, Walnut Stain.

And here is the inside of the card. “Tommel opp” means “Thumbs up”. I have also painted with White Gesso here and there.

I have used the same pattern papers inside the card as the front. And also on the sides. They are only glued on top and on the bottom, so that I can put a tag, a greeting or some money under it.

Here are the papers used:

Hi everyone,

I’m super excited to be joining the Maja Design DT and today I’m showcasing my first project.

I created a Shabby Chic Journal Cover to give as a gift to someone and I knew the Vintage Spring Basics collection were perfect for covering the journal.

Below, is a short step by step video tutorial on how I created it.

Here are some close-ups of my journal cover:

To create texture in the background I used a script The Crafters Workshop stencil with some modelling paste. I wanted to keep it very clean and shabby.

I used some matching Prima Marketing flowers, leaves and vines to embellish the book.

The doily under the flowers was cut out of the 7th of May Vintage Spring Basics paper using Prima’s die-cut metal doily.

To cover the book I used the April 3rd paper and for the doily I used the May 7th paper from the Vintage Spring Basics collection below.

I'm Keren Tamir a self taught scrapbooker, mixed media artist and designer. Since I was a child, I always loved art. I used to doodle on my notebooks and on anything I could get my hands on. ​ Fourteen years ago I discovered scrapbooking and fell in love with it. One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. Scrapbooking opened a creative door to something that I had longtime forgotten I'd loved. It gave me peace of heart and mind. visit my blog for more inspiration: https://kerentamir.blogspot.ca

Layout

Hello my dear friends!!!

Mary here with you today sharing my latest layout using papers from the beautiful ”Vintage Summer Basic” collection.

In this layout I tried to give you a cozy sense using this beautiful photo found on Pinterest, which reminds me relaxed Sundays mornings. There is nothing better than having a hot cup of coffee lying in your comfortable couch. Don’t you think?

But, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

Close up 1

For my background, I used the ”1903” paper and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”1912”  and the ”1932” papers using both sides of the last one. I also placed some torn pieces from the pages fo an old book.

Close up 2

First, I gave my paper a coat of clear gesso and then I applied some white gesso. When dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, ”Cocoa Bean Copper” and ”Sassy Sapphire” with some water to make a watercolor effect.

Close up 3

I heat embossed the title words with ”Byzantine Bronze” and the small border chipboard pieces with ”Cafe au lait”. The chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing. The metal embellishments are ”Scrap Unlimited” and the flair is ”Cuts2luv”.

Close up 4

As a final touch, I added some mica flakes in ”Henna” and made some splatters with 13arts white gesso.

That’s all for today, my friends!

See you again in two weeks!
