Stamperia Vintage Rose Collection for Bella Paperie

Hi there, this weekend I have been playing with a paper collection from Stamperia which is an Italian Scrapbook Company. The Collection is called Vintage Rose and it is so lovely with gorgeous pink, teal and cream tones.

Here is what I made

Serenity


I used the teal and cream colours in the collection to make a beach layout.




Love



For this layout I paired the pretty pinks with the teal to make a delicate floral layout





Thanks for stopping by :)
These layouts along with most of the materials I used to make them are in the Bella Paperie Store.

Vintage frame for Maja Design

Hi there, today I have a frame to share which I made for Maja Design.
A couple of weeks ago I found a ugly plastic frame in a bargain store which I decided would be perfect to alter, and here is how it turned out.


I began by applying gesso to the frame, this was because it was very cheap shiny plastic and I wanted to prime the surface so my glue and paper would stick to it. 
I chose the Maja Paper Vintage Autumn Basics No VI to cover it because I love the colour and pattern on this paper 


I fussy cut the clocks and flowers from the Vintage Autumn Basics Papers No XVI and No II. I tucked these images amongst my flowers and embellishments.


The photo I chose to go inside the frame is of my Grandmother on her wedding day with the Parents



Maja Design Papers Used:
Vintage Autumn Basics No VI, No XVI and No II

Blue Fern Studios Attic Charm Projects

Hi Blue Fern Fans, today I have three projects made with the new Attic Charm Collection.
This collection is filled with the most gorgeous papers and pastel colours.

Stillness

First up I have a layout

I started by tearing the Curio paper and layering it onto the Sachet paper.
I then added some stamping with brown ink and the Serendipity Medley & Forever stamps before I added some texture paste through a stencil.


I treated the brick pieces out of the Shabby Brick bits with white crackle paste before I coloured them with a brown mist.


To colour the Roman Clock and Stillness title I used a mix of the Ginger, Oatmeal & Mushroom embossing powders.


I finished off the layout with some Tranquil Blooms & Tranquil Roses and Lilies mixed with a few extra flowers.


Blue Fern Studios Products Used:
Attic Charm Collection Papers: Sachet & Curio
Chipboard: Roman Clock Set Large, Shabby Brick Bits, Stillness from the Peaceful, Stillness, Contenment Set.
Stamps: Serendipity Medley & Forever
Embossing Powder: Ginger, Oatmeal & Mushroom 
Flowers: Tranquil Blooms & Tranquil Roses and Lilies

Tag Album



I made this tag min album by covering some tags with the Attic Charm papers.


For the cover I used the Swan Gate chipboard piece which I coloured with the embossing powders in Sea Mist, Breeze, Petal, Cotton Candy & Ginger


On the inside I used several of the Calling cards as well as lots of images I fussy cut.

Finally I  have a layout made with the June Sketch.
I flipped the sketch so my photo is on the other side of the page.



To colour the Lace Rounds and Scalloped Border I used distress inks.
I covered the Berry Stems with Oatmeal embossing powder.

Main kit featuring Kaisercraft Always and Forever Papers.


Swirlydoos May, 2016 Scrapbook Kit - Peach Blossom

Here is the Sketch which goes with this kit


Up first I have my take on this months sketch

My Love, My Angel, My Baby



I started this layout by cutting the wood-grain image from the Kaisercraft Lovable paper to use on my background, then I fussy cut the border of flowers on this same paper. I stuck these to the Commitment paper. I also fussy cut out the flower images from the Eternal paper. to layer under my photo.



I my background I added some brown texture paste through the Tim Holtz Stripes stencil, next I added some brown and orange stamping, then I used the Finnabair butterfly stamp with embossing powder.


I used the Blue Fern Studios Spring Branch chipboard coloured with the Blue Fern embossing powders in Chilli and Verdant.
Then I finished the layout off with some flowers and metal embellishments from my stash.

Peaceful



For this layout I used the paper Romance as my background
Then I fussy cut some doily shapes from the For Keeps paper.


I cut the Blue Fern Deja Vu Dangles, which came in the kit, in half to add to the top and bottom of my photo.


I emellished with the Prima Tales of You & Me flower and bow from the kit, plus the gold trim and Kaisercraft Pearls in Chino

Wooden Plaque


Lately in the main kit we have been getting awesome off the page projects, and this month was no exception. We got this amazing wooden plaque


I added the brown lace from the kit around the edge of the large piece and as accents on the smaller pieces.



I used the Kaisercraft Always & Forever resist paper Crochet Doilies to cover the plaque. I coloured this paper with distress ink in Vintage Photo and Tea Dye, this made the gorgeous doily resist pattern really stand out.


Also from the kit I used the metal chain and Kaisercraft pearls to embellish along with flowers,  chipboard and wings from my stash
