August 4 - Paige Evans A Scrapbooking page SHOULD always have a story and lots of journaling
I am so very excited to share this project with you, it was a lot fun to put together, I hope you like it as much as I do! The very first thing that I thought of when I saw Amanda’s cute Scribble Words die cuts was ‘Wouldn’t these make a great mini album!’ So that’s exactly what I did. :D I cut out each die cut from both sets and layered them over patterned paper. Here’s my step by step process of how I made my album.
1. I cut the die cuts from white card stock and then decided on my background colours, I laid the white die cut on the possible patterned papers to make sure there was enough contrast to read the white words.
To read the rest, come on over to Amanda Robinson Studio. Then don't forget to come back and show me what you made :D
There are so many pretty die cuts and printables out there, it's hard to even know where to start! Honestly, it can be a little overwhelming at times. Not to mention, that once I started using cut files and printables, I felt like I was doing the same thing over and over and after a while everything started looking the same and I decided I needed to liven things up. So I got creative and made a list of different ways to use both cut files and printables and here is what I came up with.
IDEAS FOR DIE CUTS
1. Make a shaker box with a 'hole' in the die cut. Glue a clear top to the back of the die cut (I used a bit of packaging), add foam adhesive all around the outside (with no space between so nothing can fall out) and with your die cut facing down put in sequins, beads or confetti. Then, add a piece of cardstock to the back to hold it all in. It's ready to go on your page!
So here are the results of my giveaway!! My niece was so excited to help me chose and she even insisted on doing a tradtional draw from a hat! She was happy to write out all those names and so she was the one that got to do the actual drawing :D And here is the list, I'll email you all soon to get your snail mail address!
Thanks everyone for playing! As soon as my class is ready you'll be the first to know :D
This is just a quick update and a look into my life right now. It's the end of the school year for us, here in Luxembourg. Our last day will be Tuesday, so there are lots of things going on, a band concert tonight, a school lunch party, a school festival tomorrow evening, school trips, cookies and cakes to make for these parties etc etc!! It's a lot of fun, but I feel like a taxi and my time is not my own. However, my niece Louise is here visiting this week and we've had a lot of fun getting crafty.
I got my computer back today!! YAY! I'm trying to get things sorted, what's lost and what's not. I can see my class video but I can't seem to open it. Here's hoping, wish me luck! I'll keep you posted.
Don't forget to sign up to my email list to be entered into my draw for one fo 5 of my take along travel memory keepers.
