Memories Layout with Clear Scraps


Hello Friends, Welcome to my blog!  So glad you could
join us for tutorials, inspiration, ideas on working with so many great Clear Scraps products.  Today I'm sharing a layout with the Clear Scraps Maple Branch chipboard embellishments 
using
 several techniques, distressing, inking, fussy cutting, altering chipboard
embellishments, and tearing and layering patterned papers. 
IMG_3764
Starting with the background you’ll be layering two main sheets of patterned paper; the first
sheet is the base of the layout and is a full sheet of paper.

The second sheet is torn about one third away from a full sheet, distress and ink the torn edge
and adhere it to the full sheet, set the remaining paper aside for use on another layout.
To give your layout a layered look tear strips from coordinating paper or scraps and distress the
edges and ink.

Tuck them under your first layer one at a time adhering as you go, this will give your layout the
look of multiple layers.

Matt your photo with a scrap from the paper you are using and tear the bottom. Ink the edges.
To give your photo dimension you can use pop dots, foam tape or squares. Since these are
quite expensive I use squares of cardboard and hot glue, I adhere it to the back of the mat and
then to the layout.

For this layout I used a floral paper and cut around the floral patterns to use as embellishments.
To finish up I used ink, Glimmer Mist and embossing powder to finish the Chipboard.

Clear Scraps March Tag

Hi friends! Today I'm sharing my February tag for Clear Scraps. March has many meaningful days for me but the majority of people share one day in particular and that day is St. Patty's Day.  Traditionally the color for march is Green!  Celebrating with all our Irish friends and sometime pretending we have a little Irish in all of us!

Seems like life is always too busy for the most important things, however this fun tag won't take you long at all. I created this tag with Clear Scraps Chipboard Tag Album.

IMG_3759

 For this acrylic tag I adhered the paper 6othe tag and embellished the tag on the front with handmade flowers. I popped up all the pieces with pop dots for dimension. To finish it off add a piece of twine bow to the top.

Hope you enjoyed my February Tag and hope you're playing along with the design team on the ClearScraps Blog and making your own pretty tags!

Scrapbook Layout with Tutti Designs

Hi friends!  Today I'm sharing a project using dies by  Tutti Designs!  Tutti Designs has been busy creating away so many fabulous new dies so be sure to stop by the store and check out all the new releases!  Today I'm sharing a scrap book layout using the 

When I began this layout I knew the dies and paper I wanted to use but I started out thinking about using it by tucking it under the flowers and using it for an accent, as you can see it ended up as a border throughout the middle of the layout.  


Wanting the Swirly Roses die cuts stand out I cut them from Gold Foiled card stock along with the Word die cut.  I started out building the background with modeling paste, a stencil and a light colored glimmer mist. 

I used Gold foil card stock to cut my die cuts and I cut 2 of each of the Swirly Rose die cuts and 1 of the Word Die cut.
