Mixed Media with a Twist

Christine Circle 2Happy Halloween Eve – who’s ready to get spooking?  Our house is packed with excitement, but before I could take more pictures, I had to capture this memory from a couple years back!  As I sat looking at the Acetate Paper from the Wicked Good Collection, an idea came to my mind.  Join me as I show you how I incorporated it to do some Mixed Media with a Twist!

HappyHalloweenWM

Supplies Used:  Cobwebs Acetate Paper, Halloween Flake Stickers, Trouble is Brewing Patterned Paper, Ghosts Patterned Paper

Wanna know more about what this Mixed Media with a Twist is?  Check out this video where I walk you thru creating this spooktacular layout!

This picture shows you close-up some of the details of this layout.

The bootiful Acetate Paper made the perfect canvas for adding mixed media to my layout and I will definitely be incorporating this technique in the future.  How about those green foil eyes on the spider?!? Too Much Fun!  And of course that fussy cut ghost – those really helped pull the whole layout together.

Happy Haunting Friends!

Fun with fussy cutting!

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2

Hi everyone! 🙂 Julie with you here today, sharing a layout I made! I used the “Paradise Found Florida” collection on my page! 🙂

 

As you can see above in the collection, one of the papers has Palm Trees on it — I fussy cut the palm trees from the paper and used it on my page to create part of my background 🙂 By fussy cutting the palm trees out from paper, I was able to have places throughout my page to tuck in my photo and other embellishments!

And even those these are the “Florida” papers, I easily used this collection for my photo that was taken in San Diego, California 🙂

Here’s a look at the title I designed. You can also see the fun Washi tape I used. I love that it has some shine to it.

I used a couple of the puffy stickers to dress up the photos.

Here’s a look at the fish I cut out and used some sequins to add a little fun. You can also see on the corner of the picture I used a little banner and another of the puffy stickers.

Here’s a closer look at the fun sign. I decorated it with some of the epoxy stickers. I used the moon and stars as it was some night time fishing that they did.

Here is a closer look at one of the big catches of the night…. a sting ray. Don’t worry, they didn’t hurt him. They had to reel him in so they could carefully get him untangled from the net and then they let him go. It was quite an amazing catch though.

Well that about covers it for today. Be sure to stop back by and check out what the rest of the super talented designers are up to! It is truly amazing how creative these gals are!

Until the next time, Have a wonderfully crafty day!

Making the paper work for you!

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2Hi everyone! Julie with you here today sharing a little tip on how to OVERCOME your fear of using certain papers!

If you are like me, you look at ‘photo’ background papers and get a little intimidated! If you add your photos to it, you will lose part of that background, or if you add them to certain parts of the paper, then you feel you are limited to what you can add!

31.jpg

I started out with these papers from the The Great Outdoors – Camping Collection – and while I LOVED that photo themed paper on the right, how was I going to add my things to it, without losing the depth of the paper!??! Well — I CUT OUT what I wanted from the paper of course!

30

Once you have fussy cut the paper, you can easily assemble your photos UNDERNEATH the cut out parts and keeping the integrity of the design!

35

Once you have your photo(s) in place and the piece that you cutout placed just right – you can adhere it and then finish your page!

So next time you are intimidated by photo background paper, just give this a try!

Autumn Woods Travel Mini Album & Giveaway Winner

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2It’s a beautiful fall Monday and our team is ready for another week of fun creating!  Julie joining you today and  I made a quick little travel album for an upcoming Fall day trip the family and I will take!  Be sure to stick around to the end of the post to check out who the winner was from our Blog Hop last week!  Now let’s dive into my Autumn Woods Travel Mini Album

Autumn Woods Travel Mini Album

14
Supplies Used:  Autumn Woods Planner Stickers, Autumn Woods Washi Tape, Wicked Good Patterned Paper, Autumn Woods Patterned Paper

15

I kept things simple focusing on pretty patterned papers and simple stickers.  I can always add more after i add my pictures in.

16

I used a cut-apart page from the Autumn Woods collection so I had space to add journaling.

17

Using washi tape from the collection was an easy way to add a coordinating border and change up the look of the patterned paper.  It’s just translucent enough that it shows some of the patterned paper from behind it which also adds a nice touch.

Supplies Used: Halloween Puffy Clips, Halloween Planner Stickers, Halloween Rice Paper Border Sticker, Halloween Washi Tape, Kawaii Planner, Football Cardstock Multi Pack

I love combining all of the fun Halloween elements in my planner spread. The Tombow N15 pen was great for filling in the dates and writing in my planner.

Thankful Mini Album

Hello everyone! TinaGale here. I was so excited to play with some of Tombows markers. I decided right away that I wanted to do some stamping and coloring with them. I grabbed my Autumn Woods collection and decided to go with a gratitude mini album. I cut cardstock down to create the base then covered with some of the wood grain patterned paper. I don’t know about you but when I started scrapbooking tombow was the first glue I ever used and it’s never disappointed. The liquid mono was perfect to create this mini album with because it’s fast drying and so strong.

PH tombow

Supplies used: Autumn Woods paper, epoxy stickers, puffy stickers, sticker flakes, Life Documented stickers, pockets, washi, clips, rice paper, Tombow twin tone markers, Mono Adhesive, Tape Runner

I stamped the phrase then used the twin tone bright dual tip markers to color them in. I used green at the top and red at the bottom and blended together in the middle. It created a beautiful fall color that reminded me of fall leaves. The pumpkin border paper was perfect to finish the cover off. I stamped some leaves then colored them in to decorate the front and throughout the album.

PH t 3

For the inside I used the stick on pockets to tuck little tags into. I cut tags out of two different papers then decorated them and now they’re ready to add grateful sayings and  some photos to.

PH T 1

Once I had everything together I had fun going back and adding little bits of embellishments to each of the tags and pockets. There’s so many gorgeous bits and pieces in the Autumn Woods collection it was hard to stop adding them in.

You can see the full process here:

I hope you enjoyed my little album today and will try your hand at making one.

Two Page Halloween Scrapbook Layout

CarolynCircle2Carolyn back today with a double page layout using the latest Halloween collection from Paper House Productions called Wicked Good. It has so many fun stickers that can be used in planners or on layouts. We have also teamed up with Tombow to show you some of their cool products.

socuteitsscary1PH

Supplies: Halloween Puffy Sticker, Halloween Flake Stickers, Halloween Stick On Pockets, Trouble Is Brewing 12″ Double Sided Scrapbook Paper, Ghosts 12″ Double Sided Scrapbook Paper, Wicked Spooky Cardstock Stickers, Great Outdoors 12″ Cardstock Stickers, Wicked Good 3D Stickers, Tombow TwinTone Marker Set Brights, Tombow Mono Glue Pen

socuteitsscary2PH

I cut the spider webs and title from black and orange cardstock using my Cameo. The title comes from the Silhouette store. I decided to focus on thin, complicated cut files so I could try out the Tombow Mono Glue Pen. It was so easy to run it across the web and letters for a very thin line of glue. I usually make a big mess with my adhesives but this worked like a charm! The glue is very thin so the only recommendation I have is to use it quickly so it doesn’t dry. I then used the black TWINTONE dual-tip marker for the journaling. I used the thicker tip so my writing stood out but the fine tip is very handy to have for more precise work.

Fall Bullet Journal Spread

Hi everyone!  Christine joining you to share a Fall Bullet Journal Spread.  I’ve been loving all the bullet journals I have been seeing lately and decided a new pack of Tombow TwinTone Markers was the perfect reason to try it out!

BulletJournal

Supplies Used: Autumn Woods Epoxy Clips, Autumn Woods Planner Stickers, Autumn Woods Epoxy Stickers, Autumn Woods Stick-On Pockets, Autumn Woods Puffy Stickers, Autumn Woods Patterned Paper, Autumn Woods Rice Paper Borders, Free Spirit Planner

I really enjoyed this process and decided I would designate my Free Spirit Planner for my bullet journaling creations.  It worked perfectly! Let’s take a closer look at the two sides of my spread.

BulletJournal1WM

I incorporated the Rice Paper Borders, Planner Stickers, Epoxy Stickers, and Epoxy Clips.  It was fun to have all the options.

BulletJournal2WM

I really love this side, I think because of the stick-on pocket!  Bullet journaling has such a practical organizing side as well as memory keeping. It also can allow for a lot of creativity – I think I will really enjoy dabbling in it!
