 Take a look at my Wooden Wall Scrapbook Panel:

You Are Loved

Joann’s is my favorite place now to look for different pieces to scrapbook on. I found this super cute unfinished wood wall decor and knew this would be perfect for my next project.

Floral Flurries Washi Tape

My niece is growing up so fast and I wanted to capture her sleeping. This will hang in her room when I’m done.

Here’s how I created this Wooden Wall Scrapbook Panel:

Use Altenew Floral Flurries Washi Tape and cover the entire wood panel.

Use number 15 Penblade to accurately cut the washi tape off the edges and in the middle creases.

Once the washi tape is place down, its time to die cut Altenew Mega Hello die and the Altenew You Are Loved die.

Hello Mega Die

Attach each die cut word to foam die cut words for extra thickness.

You are loved

Print your photos, attach them to the wood frame and then attach the die cut word dies.

Attach some embellishment and your done!

Altenew March 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s March 2018 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the all of the new Stamps and Dies.  If you arrived here from the talented Yoonsun Hur blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my Framed Scrapbook:

Altenew Sincere Greetings

I’m always looking for ways to stretch my scrapbooking ideas and I love this one. I am totally tickled by this scrapbook frame.  Amber from Damasklove posted some great buys at Joann’s the other day on Instagram and it gave me some ideas. So I went to Joann’s, picked up this wooden panel and decided to create a scrapbook frame.

I ordered a pair of Crocs for the first time and thought it would be fun to playfully document them.  I’m going to wear these at work.

Here’s how I created this Scrapbook Frame:

Use Altenew Dotted Washi Tape to cover the bottom of the wood panel.

Then stamp hello from the Sincere Greeting stamp set around the border of the frame using Stazon black ink.

http://shrsl.com/u5d2

Print the pictures using Fujifilm Instax SP-3 and Fujifilm Instax Square Film.

Add the photos to the left side of the frame using foam tape.

Add the title using Altenew Our Family chipboard stickers.

Our Family Chipboard

Type or write the journaling and adhere it under the title.

Decorate the photos and frame with embellishments from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection and Our Family Scrapbook Collection.

Reflection Scrapbook Kit

So different, yet so effective. I love it!

Art Journaling Series – Imagine

Hello everyone!!  I’m starting a new series on my blog called the Art Journaling Series!!  I’m having so much fun with paints and stencils that I want to do more and share more!! I will try and post at least once a month for now but we will see how this goes!!

I posted a page yesterday, if you didn’t see it, you can check it out here.

Let take a look at my new page:

art journaling

Here’s how I created this page:

  1. I applied different size washi tape to my 8 x 10 Gel Press Plate.
  2. Then I randomly added Vicki Boutin Acrylic Paint in yellow and orange on top of the washi tape plate.
  3. I used a brayer to even out the paint.
  4. Once the plate was covered, I remove the washi tape, leaving the pattern you see above.
  5. After the paint dried, I used some stencils from The Crafter’s Workshop (Mini Ledger, Mini Time for Love, and Mini Specimens) and Liquitex Black Gesso to add the different marking on the page.
  6.  To finish the page off, I stamped Visible Image Face It! and Imagine Dream Inspire stamps using Ranger Archival Jet Black Ink.

I totally love how this page turned out.  I thought about writing on this page but it didn’t need it at all.

I’m linking my page up to Craft Stampers Take It Make It Challenge this month.

Your Next Stamp DT Dare – Stripes

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with Your Next Stamp and our DT Dare!!!

What is a DT Dare you ask? It’s a fun monthly challenge for the YNS design team to show case more fabulous projects using the new release products!!

YNS-DARE-Badge

Fun right!!

Wait there is more!!  If you leave a comment on the YNS blog post you could Win a YNS Stamp Set of your choice!!! 

Exciting right!!  It sure is for me!!

The DT Dare Challenge this month is Stripes!!  The design team was asked to create a project using one of the new stamp sets from the March release.  I went with the new From the Heart Stamp set and some Recollection ColorSplash washi tape for my project.

Take a look at my project:

Love Happiness Life (YNS)

To create this card, I added the washi tape to the card front first to create the strips, then stamped the sentiment. Nothing to it.

Such a great way to use the washi tape you have on hand.  This was just perfect because this stamp set has the word happiness in it so I just replaced it with the washi tape.

What do you think?  Please let me know below.

Super simple and easy.

So tell me what you think of this challenge? I would love to know, let me know below!

{Clean and Simple} CASology 191 – Washi

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card is:

Week 191 - Washi

Take a look at my card:

Washi (CAS)

I’m so tickled by my card.  I love how the numbers look like they come with the newsprint on them.  Its Washi Tape!! I used Tim Holtz’s Symphony Tissue Tape and Penny Black By The Number Die.

To create this card:

  1. Add 5 strips of washi tape to white cardstock.
  2. Use the die cut to cut the washi cover cardstock.
  3. Adhere the die cut to the cardbase using Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.

Nice and simple!

I was having so much fun, that I had to create another card.

Enjoy Washi (CAS)

This time I used some new watercolor washi tape that I picked up from Michaels. I love this tape.  So super pretty. I have to say that I’m super luck to have this set of washi tape.  I hear everyone saying they can’t find these.  I might have to search them out and pick up another for a giveaway, maybe!!

washi

To create this card:

  1. Add two strips of tape on the bottom of my card base.
  2. Use Simon Says Stamp Painted Enjoy Die to cut one word out.
  3. Adhere it right above the washi tape with Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue.

Nice and easy clean and simple card!!

What do you think?  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
