Laura:

Today’s project uses the leftovers from my first Pretty MY Page project… I saved the rainbow negatives from my cutting mat and coloured them with some watercolour paints. I arranged them in colour order and ran them through my sewing machine.

I’ve added texture paste through the Rainbows stencil for subtle details on the background.

I’ve added black shimmery splatters using Dylusions Shimmer Ink in Black Marble.  And embellished with enamel dots – some regular and some with a matte finish. I’ll tell you now – you need these matte ones in your stash!

I’ve also used some foil leftovers from this project. Never waste a thing if it’s pretty!

Here’s the process video so you can see how it came together.

Thanks for looking!

With love and colour

Terri-Ann:
This layout uses the pre-cut file Bed of Roses available in white, cream or black cardstock available in the shop.
I used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks in Blueprint Sketch, Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean with a blending tool to create a bright, bold background on some heavy weight cardstock. To add interest I splattered the ink with water which lifted some of the colour.
Laying the bright white cut file over the bold colourful background gives a great contrast.
For this layout I have gone with a kind of monochromatic style for the colouring focusing on the blue/green background when choosing embellishments from my extensive stash.

Hello All

I am back with you today to share a layout I created using the lovely Batty Ring cut file.

I love Halloween and the cut file was just crying out to be used with this photo of my daughter dressed in her bat witch Halloween costume when she was nearly 2! Yes, that was 12 years ago and it’s taken me this long to scrap it!!

 

I raised the cut file up on foam pads and fussy cut around my daughter in the picture to make her look like she was sitting on the die cut. I added some ribbon from my vast Halloween stash to the plain edge just above the photo.  I added the haunted house and Fright sign die cuts from My Minds Eye Trick or Treat collection. I found the spooky tree in my buttons collection and thought it went well with the house for a spooky feel!

I flicked some purple ink to the top right and bottom left corners and I found a moon and stars in the same die cut pack. It makes it look like the bats are flying in the sky with them in the corner! I raised the larger star up on foam pads, just to give it a bit of dimension.

I didn’t want to take too much focus away from the bats on the cut file, so I added a few more little Halloween die cuts, a few tiny buttons, some black sequins and purple gems (I love a bit of bling!)

I am a self confessed Disney nut so anything Disney themed will always win my heart. This cut file is amazing to be able to scrap Disney memories with. And I’ve found that both the positive and negative part of the cut is so versatile to use.
For this layout I have gone with the positive part of the cut file and used a whole load of different Alphas to fill in the cut file. Another great way would be to use stamps instead if you don’t have as many Alphas as I do (I know, I have a Thicker problem).
Once I filled it in, I used some small embellishments in the blank area. So some die cut pieces from multiple different Disney collections and I used these super cute wood veneer pieces from the Pretty My Page shop (I can’t get enough of these!).
I then backed it all onto a patterned 12×12 piece of paper and added my photo to the bottom right so as to leave the majority of the cutfile and embellishments uncovered.
You can the layout come together in the video here.

Our second Design Team project is from the lovely Jane Gwynn!

For this project I used the Rings Of Hearts cut file available in the store and created a 12×12 layout featuring a photo of my lovely mum and I on my wedding day fifteen years ago.

The paper collection is More Than Words by Cocoa Vanilla Studio and uses just the 6×6 paper pad and the ephemera pack.

I have used layers and layers of foam, Heidi Swapp Gold Colour Shine and my own gold pearls to add dimension and depth.

Thank you for looking and have a scrappy happy day.xx

Laura Says: I love this cut file called Too Many Hearts. I set it to cut a little smaller than 12×12 so I had a nice chunky border around the edge.

I’ve just got a Minc and some reactive mist and I want to use it on everything! I sprayed over the die-cut with another sheet underneath… you’ll see that background soon, too. I wasn’t aiming for full coverage – just a light misting. Once the mist was dry I ran it through the Minc with some holographic foil.

I then backed some of the hearts with Bella Boulevard ‘Alex’ papers. I left some of the hearts un-backed as I love the shadow they cast. I added foam squares to the reverse and popped it on to another white 12×12.

I kept it simple as there was a lot going on (for me!) and only added a bulldog clip to my photo and embellished with the matching Bella Boulevard sticker sheet.

I’ve also kept the hearts that came from this cut file so I am going to get three elements from one cut file.

Thanks for looking!

Our final debut from our brand new Design Team is the lovely Tracy Service!  Yes I say lovely for all of them because that’s exactly what they are.  We’re having such a lovely time behind the scenes and they’re being brilliantly supportive   I hope you are enjoying their projects so far.

Over to you Tracy:

For this page I’ve used the ‘coffee cup corner’ pre-cut cut-file in black.

 

I’ve backed it with the tissue paper that a recent order was packed in.

The background was created with acrylic paints spread with an old store card. I’ve used gold sequins and gems on the background and added some black splats.

 

With love and lots of bright colour!

Happy Monday to you all!  Our penultimate debut is this colourful layout from the lovely Terri Morris!
She says:
To create this vibrant layout I used the packaging technique with Dylusion Ink Sprays in Peony Blush, Rose Quartz and Vanilla Custard. I smooshed it in a diagonal strip across white cardstock in the rough area that I was planning to put the Diagonal Heart Mesh cut file (currently available in Pre-cut and very soon as a downloadable).
I added some splatters of the inks and also of Dylusions shimmer spray in Bubblegum Pink.
I’m desperately trying to use up some stash so I backed the Diagonal Heart Mesh cut file with a floral patterned paper from Paige Evan’s ‘Turn the Page’ collection.
When I have such a bright background I love how black and white photos pop off the page. For this layout I overlapped two of the same photo for effect.  Finally I added a title, a few puffy stickers, tiny word strips and small acrylic hearts.
With love and colour
