Fab Scraps1st design team project using C88 Floral Dream Collection

C88  Floral Dream Collection Layout for Fab Scraps

This is my first posting for Fab Scraps. I am super excited to share my layout using amazing C88 Floral Dream Collection. This collection had amazing colour, stencil, chipboard and fun accents to create with. Details are below. 

Paper: C88 005 Merry Weather
Chipboard: DC 88 009 Fairy in Moon
Ink: Tim Holtz mini
Stencil: DS 005 Floral Dreams Filigree Frame
Other: Cardstock, Ink, Alpha, flowers

STEP 1: start with a misc cardstock base 12x12”. Fold the paper diagonally from corner to corner. Use upper half of the print flowers and the bottom right is the polka dot pattern. Firmly glue down to the cardstock
STEP 2: Fussy cut lots of the accents from the print paper… the cute image section with flowers, small flowers and the bird with circular stamp section.  Ink the edges for depth and dimension.
STEP 3: Ink colour the chipboard accent… matching the paper colours.
STEP 4. Roughly determine your photo and accent placement. Things will flow through the central diagonal section.
STEP 5: With the rough placement of photo and accents determine where the floral stencil will best fit the background of your paper. I used Ink stamps with the finger sponge to add the stenciling.
STEP 6: When clustering the accents… leave some on level height while foam popping some up for more depth.
STEP 7: Using some additional accents add the butterfly and some additional florals along with the fussy cut paper ones.
STEP 8: in the open space add the alpha letters for you titling. I also added a few misc arrow accents also.

Thanks for stopping by.. be sure to come again .. when I get to share more Fab Scrap projects... you won't want to miss what I have to share.

Choose Happy using Robin's Nest Products

Today at The Robin's Nest I am creating "choose Happy" page with a mom and daughter photo. This collection can be used for guys or gals pages. One side soft with florals, bold stripes on the other side.

Supply List:
The Robin's Nest Products
Paper: Genuine Boy Collection, Boy Swirl Glitter CardstockBoy Star Glitter Cardstock, Daisy Stripe Teal, cream glitter cardstock
Accents: diamond dew drops, periwinkle flowers, azure ribbonteal glitter journal,
Doily: Gina's Design
Other: burlap flowers, white signo gel pen, cork title

1. pull photos, accents, papers. It's a busy background so some plain glitter paper to separate things is perfect.
2. I started with the slanted border first across the full bottom edge. The dark brown thin border was also added with some white signo gel pen stitches.

3. Decide on the layers and colours to background the photo. I started with the cream glitter and worked my way forward with the cream and teal floral. The photo is matted in the matching teal shade. I was  missing something so I then added the dark brown with blue star strip to pull it together.

4. For accents I worked with Gina's Design doily and the fun cork sticker. I added the ribbon accent. Above the photo on top left is a burlap butterfly.

5. The trend today is to add clusters off in corners.. so my cluster used accent papers and the fun diamond dew drops. 

6. below the photo I added the journal accent and around it I added flowers both in paper and burlap.
7. You can finish your page anyway you like with as many accents as you like. You make it your own.

Thanks for stopping by.... enjoyed sharing with you today.

Memories at The Rubber Buggy using Blue Fern Studio

hi..today I am sharing the page Memories at The Rubber Buggy using the Blue Fern Studios page of my youngest grand daughter. She is so grown up now but love sharing all the great pages when grand children are all smaller. Brings back fond memories for sure. This collection is soft and perfect for cute photo.

Supply List: 
The Rubber Buggy Products:
Paper: Blue Fern Frolic Collection
Chipboard: Blue Fern Studios Collage Border
Stamp: Dina Wakley Scribbly Flowers Stamp, Blue Fern Studios Shabby Edges
Markers: Copics
Bling: Magnolia beads
Circle Cutter: Kreaxions
Stickers: SRM
Sketch: AWDML by Bev Code

Here are some details shots for your viewing.

I start with a rough draft of my page.. nothing is glued down until I am almost done my layers and proposed accents.

For this one I had 2 sheets of the same paper so I cut a birdcage fussy cut and inked the edges to apply with pop dots to add depth and dimension to the accent.

Here it shows placing the popped up accent and also notice the SRM sticker stitches that make great accents to so many pages... or cards.

Close up view.

Central section shows the many fun layers, great clustered floral accent, addition  of tags, some stamping and also the copic coloured chipboard border.

More views of the page.. the upper corner has papers layered, some stamping and also used the stamp accent to coordination with the other one used.

More stamping in this section, some layers behind the title Memories and what fun bead accents.



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