Birds, Bears and Bunnies

I seem to have discovered a whole new side to Kaiser Collections and am just loving what I can do with them as well as unwittingly scrapped photos with animals in them this week. I do LOVE this first layout though – I’m so pleased with it. It uses Tea @ Elsies papers & Peachy Keen.

Idea 91: Flick the background cardstock with waterpaint using a toothbrush.

Idea 92: Made another kind of rose by twisting a spiral for the centre.

Idea 93: Use the silhouette of the branches I cut out to do shadow stamping.

And here’s the bunny bit (LOL), well…Easter eggs anyway. This is the last one from my April DT kit for Annas.

Idea 94: Zig-zag stitch the smaller pieces of paper to the base paper.

Also made a Mothers Day card for Mum which also uses Kasier – the Devonshire range.

Oh, and here’s my step x step project using Prima Strawberry Kisses from Annas for this month now up on the blog.

Idea 95: Make a journal card with cardtsock as the base, lay a couple of flowers and a chipboard frame on it and spray with Glimmermist, remove the flowers and frame, then cut around the shape and trace with a black pen.

Idea 96: Cover the page with some paper leaving a 2″ border exposed then spray with Glimmermist – trace around it roughly.

I do actually have 3 girls…. (lol)

Seems like I’ve been scrapping my eldest and youngest DDs exclusively lately, (its just that their photos were the right colours). So I promised the next page would be of my other DD – she was very pleased with it.

From my DT kit, this one uses Bo Bunny Mammi-Razzi.

Idea 78: She particularly liked this sparkly tissue-paper flower I made.  You just cut 5 layers of 3 different size circles, stitch them together in the centre, spray with glimmermist, then blow-dry with a hair dryer and the layers separate. Quick and fun.

This next one uses more from my kit, Little Yellow Bicycle CLOTHESLINE range.

Can you believe her little tongue poked out like this for 6 months till we found out what it was causing it.

Idea 79: Make a lace rosette for the flower centre.

Idea 80: Back the journalling spot with felt (I would havr preferred to use pinking sheers, but I had none).

Idea 81: I think I can call this one my very own idea, I call it ‘FROSTING’. I dabbed an old toothbrush into the gunky paint that collects at the top of the MM paint bottle lids then dabbed it on the heart and flower petals making it more 3D. I love the effect and it softens the strong aqua colour.

Idea 82: Make paper rosettes for the flower centres.

This one is made from Prima STRAWBERRY KISSES range and using Prima & Kaiser flowers.

Idea 83: Double up the title using different alphas.

Idea 84: Stamp the chipboard flourish with another flourish to highlight it.

Just getting a few more in before starting on my DT kit that just arrived yesterday.

Idea 41: Trace the flourish and off set it.

Idea 42: made my own mini rose from a Jillibean journalling scallop circle.

Idea 43: Stamped on the paper flower.

Idea 44: Crumpled the paper for the jouranlling tag, glued it on then inked it. Sanded the title.

Idea 45: made my own tag from scratch using stamps, inks and a quote.

This one I have been meaning to scrap for ages and in the clean-out, found some papers just right.

Idea 46: Use punched paper lace doubled.

Idea 47: Use watercolours to paint the flowers and bird.

I have also entered the SM cover competition but I can’t show you that one yet (sorry…).

Finding my romantic side

I have been sticking to my ‘straight lines’ style a lot again even though I have been wanting to branch out and try some new styles, so I got determined and tried to be all soft & ‘flowery’ if that’s a word? Here’s what I came up with…

I tried layering a lot and making my own flowers.

Idea 26: Make my own flowers.

Idea 27: Paint under the butterfly transparency.

This one (below) I entered in the Scrap the girls monthly comp.

Idea 28: Use 3D foam under some of the letters but not others (as with the sun).

 And this one was a scraplift from a new blog I found by Karola (in Poland).

I made my own flower for this one also using the Retro punch.

Idea 29: Use multiple chipboard wings 

Idea 30: white out the dark background in the photo with paint using a cotton bud and cross-hatch action.

This year I will

try to put something new (by that I mean something I haven’t done before) on every layout. I’m bored with the old stuff (LOL), so here goes…..

These 2 layouts (above & below) using Crate Paper’s Seasons Collection, are for the Scrapbook n bits January competition.

Idea 1: Use different lettering for each word in the title.

Idea 2: Double stitch around the border.

Idea 3: Use numbers instead of words in the title.

This one uses Kaiser pps.

Idea 4: Stitch on the photo.

And this one uses Bo Bunny Princess stickers.

Idea 5: Hand-draw the flowers.

Idea 6: add a mini tag.
