Off the Rails Scrapbooking Mood Board for October

I used the colour palette below .. the October Off the Rails Scrapbooking mood board to create my page above. My best friend and I in Florida spending time together.

Supply List:
The Rubber Buggy Products: 
Ink:  Tim Holtz ranger,  Color Box
Other: Punch: EK Success
Stamp: misc
Gemstones: The Paper Studio, Songs of Spring

OMG look at this amazing colour palette.. be sure to play along with us and inlinz and share your project with us so we can view and comment on it too.

In the close up you can see the great chipboard accents that I inked using Color Box. When you don't have copic markers or paint along when scrapping you use the next best thing.. right? I also added some bling to the title section.

I love colouring chipboard and using it in full pieces or cut apart pieces for great accents on any project.

In this section I punched flowers .. some single layers and some double to form a cluster. I add some stamped flowers to cluster and added some more bling.
I love the background mats when they are tilted and inked to showcase the photo.

Be sure to visit the Off the Rails Scrapbooking Blog to view what the other Design team have to share. Thanks for stopping by.... see you again soon.

The Rubber Buggy and smooching technique

Today at The Rubber Buggy I am sharing a fun technique I just learned.. call smooching.. and also highlighting products .... Maja Design A Gift for You Collection. 
However first I used Modeling Paste and a stencil cut with cricut.. Star shapes... and add a thin layer of paste over the background paper.

It's not over powering.. but definitely adds texture.

Next using a plastic bag over your fingers.. do one of two things your choice... 1. add paint to bowl, lid or tray and add small amount of water to thin it out. Take the plastic bag over your finger and dab into paint .. now pat and smooch over the page. OR 2. put the plastic bag over your fingers and add ink from the ink pad to the bag and spray with a small amount of water and dab and smooch over page. When done with the 1st colour you can wipe off and dry with a paper towel and now repeat with more colours. Above is the sample of my background smooching. I tried both ways and it worked great.

Above is my finished page starting with smooching and then fun layers, accents and photos to finish off my page.
Supply List:
The Rubber Buggy Products:
Paper: Maja Design A Gift for You
Ink: Tim Holtz ranger distress ink 
Other: Bella Creationz Twine, stickles, glossy accents
Cricut cut file: Scrapbook Stamps Society SVG cut files, 
Paint, color box, Liquitex modeling paste, Studio 71 gesso

In the close ups you can view some details better. This section shows the smooching, the fun cricut cut title and border ornaments along with the corner twine tied accent.

This section shows the fun twine tied slanted border and cute santa accent.

Really cute tags came as part of the paper.. cut them all apart and clustered them for a cute accent.

This close up shows that one photo was trimmed leaving some white border and the other photo was print paper matted.

I enjoyed sharing this project with you today.. and sure hope you'll try both ways of smooching using a plastic bag and watered down colours.

Sherri Baldy has digital paper kits too

Today on Scrapbook Stamp Society with Sherri Baldy I am sharing  2 layouts using both a digital layout using the paper kit below and making a 12x12 size page... AND the other page is digital paper layout done and then I used a photographed a finished paper copic coloured image that I made into a png to create the 2nd page.

The first page above I just resized the finished size of the papers and added them into layers to create my page. I cropped the cute digi image from the paper line and made it an accents to the page. Used the addition of some stitching and added a title.... it came together perfectly.

Here is the Love letters Besties kit I used above.. be sure to check out the many other kits available too.

On this 2nd page I used the kit papers again and mixed them to get the basic design. I added a mat behind the photo using the match colouring from the paper. I added some stitching and then I took the copic coloured image Big Eye Big Head Dolls Digi My Besties Calico Callie IMG700  and changed it to a png file so I could add her to my page.
This method was really fun to create with. It always amazing me what you can to change up crafts to work with and make them beautiful with a different technique.

Thanks for joining me today.. hope to see you again soon.
