Fabulous Find: Nuvo Glitter Paste & Tim Holtz Stencils


Hello!

Virginia has created some fabulous cards showcasing the Nuvo Glitter Paste. The paste applies smoothly and is so very sparkly. It looks equally fantastic on light and dark card stock as you can see below.



Virginia applied the paste though the Tim Holtz Floral layering stencil.  Click here to see all the Tim Holtz layering stencils offered in the store.

Using Nuvo Glitter Paste and stencils is a quick and easy technique to create a card that makes the recipient say ,"Wow!".

Travel Fun


Greetings!

This Scrap Shotz April 2017 Kit is quite versatile as I hope you've seen from the previous posts. 

Today I have a travel layout to share with you:

My darling husband and myself took a trip to Texas, him to attend a Dallas Cowboys game with his cousins and a friend.  Myself and our cousin's wife, S., tagged along for the stadium tour and went shopping on game day. We had a fabulous time, especially taking in those El Jefe (tequila/martini) drinks at On the Border Grill (I think??, can't find it online). This layout above features a photo of our nighttime approach to land at Dallas/Fort Worth airport and a selfie of myself and my hubby.

A close up of the journal spot and the WRMK frame board frame highlighting the Fort Worth/Dallas portion of the map patterned paper along with the travel die cut sticker.
I added a couple of portions of the Cowboys schedule to finish off the layout.

Thanks for stopping in, we so appreciate the time to take to read our posts! Cheers!

12 Be Fearless-Scrap Shotz April 2017 Kit-Interactive


Welcome to another Scrap Shotz April 2017 Kit project and the star of this layout is my first grade 12 graduate.

I'll be honest, I ordered at least one copy of every image taken during my son's grad photo shoot. He graciously gave me permission to scrap them and post them online.
I was asked to create a sample using the Vicki Boutin reactive tissue for the Scrap Shotz NSD crop and this was what I camp up with.
At this point I was just figuring out the reactive tissue and handcut sunburst rays from various colours of tissue, laid down on Bazzil heavyweight card stock and then misted with water.
I didn't get the colour transfer I had anticipated so I lifted up the tissue paper, turned it over, placed it in the previous spots and misted again.
After letting the reactive tissue transfer dry, I applied Vicki Boutin Iridescent glaze through the kit stencil, let dry and then chose the photos for the layout followed by the die cuts.

I created an embellishment cluster next to the grad cap photo:
The photo frame and labels below the photo are from the kit die cuts and kit add on labels.

Journal pieces cut out from sheets of kit patterned paper provide the journaling area and quote title.

I love how wonderfully this kit showcases these special photos for my family!

Thanks for taking a look 😊

Scrap Shotz April 2017 Kit-XOXO and Otters

Welcome here again for more kit projects created with the Scrap Shotz April 2017 kit.

I designed and cut this heart die cut with my Silhouette Cameo.
The middle heart is stencilled with the Vicki Boutin kit stencil, black watercolour crayon, add-on Vicki Boutin Iridescent Glaze and Tim Holtz distress ink from my stash.
Two hearts are backed with the Vicki Boutin hot pink, gold arrow patterned paper and the negative spaces of the 3 remaining hearts are filled with Nuvo Crystal drops, fussy cut butterfly images topped with iridescent glaze and a phrase sticker from the Vicki Boutin line,
The tassle is had cut from patterned paper, wrapped with Kaisercraft gold washi tape and the ends rubbed with Nuvo gold Glitter paste.

Next up is this sweet card:

This Mama Elephant stamp set is so sweet and has a coordinating die to make it easy to cut out the otter images.
Vicki Boutin Iridescent glaze was spread through the Tim Holtz Splash stencil on Bazzil card stock. Once the glaze dried, Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch was applied.
Otter images were stamped in black Memento Ink, then copic coloured. Red glitter heart was die cut from glitter paper with heart from otter die cut set.
A kit patterned paper piece is cut to size and embossed, hand cut banner is layered under circle shaker  frame which houses otters and dollar store sequins.
Sentiment is stamped in Hero Arts Unicorn pigment ink and heat embossed with Stampendous clear detail embossing powder.

Thank you for stopping by and there are more kit projects to come!

Happy Birthday 7- April Scrap Shotz Kit

Hi Everyone!

I think this is my most favourite layout of this kit reveal which is now available in the store as a single month purchase! There are also lots of add ons still available for the April kit, click here to see them!
The paper was a full sheet looking like a varicoloured wood floor that I cut down by colour and then hand cut fringes. It made me think of the layers on a piñata and birthday photos are a perfect match for a piñata right?

!
Lot's of fringe on this and I scribbled the Vicki Boutin black watercolour crayon on my craft mat, misted with water, picked up with a paint brush and then splattered on the layout by flicking the paint brush over the fringed paper, transparency mat, photos and layered die cuts.
The 'happy birthday' title is stamped with the Vicki Boutin floral stamp sentiment.

Here is a good look at the fringe and watercolour crayon flicking.

A close up look at the lower right corner embellishment cluster, kit die cut butterfly stencilled with Vicki Boutin Iridescent Glaze, and layers of kit die cuts over the top.


The May Kit and kit Add ons are now live, featuring the Kaisercraft Indigo Skies lines, click here to purchase add ons.
Thanks for stopping by and make sure you bookmark us to see more April kit projects in the coming days😀

Focus on What Matters April 2017 Scrap Shotz Kit


Hello and Happy Mother's Day!

It's Rosie and I have a couple of layouts to share with you using the Scrap Shotz April 2017 kit:


This kit features the brand new Vicki Boutin Mixed Media line including the Vicki Boutin patterned paper. For our sketch project we've chosen this sketch from Creative Scrapbookers Magazine:
I so love all the circles on this layout! Here is my interpretation of the sketch:

I have used a 2" circle punch, 3" circle punch and die cut circles to create the circle die cuts.

There are a number of steps in creating this layout so I will list them to make it easier to follow my process:

1. Cut Vicki Boutin Mixed Media Reactive Tissue with die cut circles in red, light green and blue.
2. Lay out tissue circles in desired placement, make note of areas.
3. Mist white card stock in desired placement areas with water, place tissue circles and mist with water.
4. While tissue dries punch patterned paper circles and one acetate "paper" circle, choose photo.
5. Discard dried tissue paper circles and heat dry to completely dry if necessary. Use the die cut circles used to cut tissue paper as templates to pierce card stock for hand stitching.


6. Hand stitch pierced circles in coordinating colour of floss.

7. Lay out patterned paper die cuts in desired placement, choose title Pinkfresh Studio puffy sticker and Vicki Boutin stickers for journaling.
8. Add your choice of Vicki Boutin card stock labels and kit Die Cut Shapes. Embellish with Pinkfresh Studios puffy heart and arrow stickers.

I hope you've enjoyed this step by step look at this kit project layout. Feel free to leave any questions in the comments and thanks for stopping by😊
