Adventure Awaits

Scrapbook Layout created for Scrapbook Nerd  -  ADVENTURE AWAITS  -

Hi there!

There are so many beautiful paper collections arriving at my doorstep, and I love them, but there are those special collections that keep you coming back, and this is the case of 1Canoe2 Creekside collection.  So I decided to create this page for Scrapbook Nerd using a bit of mixed media and some of the collection.

A bit of watercolor from one of Prima Marketing's palette (Odyssey) was used to create the background.   Then the wood texture stamp from Kaisercraft and some brown archival ink were used to create the wood texture on top of the watercolor.   Just love the background!!!

Next, I fussy cut the wood-like colored roses from the collection's paper,  and clustered them at the corners of the picture so that they form a diagonal on the page. Along the way,  I added a few stickers and die cuts from the collection to  add some more color to the page.

To balance the page, a small cluster was created using stickers from the collection.  A bit of the background was also repeated on this corner of the page so that the look is coherent on the page.  A few stamped images using a Citrus Twist Kits stamp complete this page:

Can I say that i love how this page  came together, and the monochromatic look of the page with those small pops of color.   Just love the look of the page.

Stop by Scrapbook Nerd to check all the materials used in this layout (all come from the store, they are great at ordering in stuff for you!). Remember i am a comment away if you have questions on how this was put together.

Take care!

Enjoy The Moment

Scrapbook Layout created for Just Nick Studio  - ENJOY THE MOMENT -

Hello Friends and Fans!

Nathalie with you today bringing you a bit of Spring ( trust me we have seen too much snow and cold here in Canada) to your day.   There are so many  new designs available in the  Just Nick  Studio store, that it was so easy to create this page.

Since i wanted to break from all the snow, i chose to use vanilla cardstock as the base for this page. Next I used  the Pretty Pinwheels background to create the background of this page.  All the pinwheels were backed using papers from Studio Calico's Bookmarked kit (March 2018), and a bit of foam adhesive.

Before adding the background to the page, a little bit of Vicki Boutin's art crayon was added around the placement of the picture.  Then the piece of the background was attached on a bit of a slant so that there is a bit of movement to the page.

To decorate the picture, i added a few elements from the kit, and a few fussy cut floral motifs from one of the papers included in the kit (I love them!).   Then just added a few lines of journal at the bottom of the picture.

The title of this page was created using the Enjoy The Moment cut file and a few of the kit's papers.   The two cut outs were glued together with a bit of an offset, and then propped on the page with some foam adhesive.   Just a few drops of gold ink, and a few fussy cut butterflies finish this page.

I love how this page turned out, and how easy it was to put together using a few of the store's cut files.   Stop by the Just Nick Studio store to check the weekly new designs and all the previous ones, too.  As always let me know if you have questions on how this came together.

Card Set Duo

Card Set  created for Maya Road

Hi Roadies and friends!!!
Nathalie with you today bringing you a bit of Spring inspiration (Spring will be arriving in the next few days to the Northern Hemisphere, and here in Canada, I think we are more than ready to see something other than snow!!!) in a set of cards that showcase a few of the beautiful Maya Road products.

There are so many celebrations coming up for our family, that i took a few minutes to create this set, really in total this came together in 30 minutes total for both!  The key was to create a single background for both cards .

Using the Golden Moments Mini Album kit stamp set, and the Rose Garden Sentiment stamp set   different flowers and leaves were stamped and embossed  (snow white embossing powder) on Bazzill Marshmallow cardstock.   Then a bit of Distress Oxide ink (Fossilized Amber, Tater Rose, Worn Lipstick) were used to blend and color the cardstock.

Once the cardstock was cut to the card size (5x7 in),  the Flower Die set was used to cut a circle off center on the cardstock.   A few pieces of Earl Grey Jute and Twine cording were then  glued so that they can be gathered at the center of the circle created.

One of  Ken Oliver Vintage Heart and key Charms was then set in the center of the cut circle where the twine gathers.

Finally, a smaller banner flag, cut using the With Love Nature Die set, was color with Chameleon pens, and then a sentiment from the Golden Mini Album  kit stamp set was added with black ink.   A few small gold drops (Nuvo) were then added to complete the card.    So easy and super fast!!
Now let me show you how easy the next card came together:

For this card the pink edge of the embossed cardstock was used.   Once the cardstock was cut (6x4.5) then a piece of Ken Oliver Vintage Trim Scallop Drop was then added on an angle at the bottom of the colored cardstock.

Next using some ombre rose gold ink a sentiment was stamped to the bottom right corner of the cardstock using the Rose Garden Sentiment stamp set.   Then  one Shimmering Pointed Petal Flower in Mauve was added above the stamped sentiment

To add a few more details to the card a pair of Vintage Pearl Trinket pins  were added above the flower.   Just a few clear pink drops were then added to complete this card.

Just like I mentioned previously, these cards took 30 minutest to put together.   The longest step was embossing and coloring the cardstock, the rest is all embellishing with Maya Road goodies.

Stop  by the Maya Road on line store to check most materials used in this post.  There are so many beautiful goodies available.   As always i am a comment away if you have questions on how this came together.
