Australasian White Pines Blog Hop


Blog BadgeWelcome to the White Pines Australasian Blog Hop.  This is a circular hop.  If you arrived from Simone’s, Scrappy Matters you are in the right place. Simply read through this post and click on the link to the next blog at the end of it.  Keep reading and ‘hopping’ until you find yourself back where you started from.  Each blog will showcase a project featuring the White Pines collection which is only available through until the end of December 2015.

My project is a wall hanger.  You may recognise it as the 5″ x 7″ Hinged Display (Z1838) that usually sits horizontally on a bench.  I turned it 90°, added a couple of eyelet hooks to the back and threaded a Base & Bling necklace chain (Z3160) through the eyelets.  My plan is to add a family group photo in the largest space and  couples photos of my 2 kids with their partners in the 2 smaller spaces.

I used goodies from the White Pines Scrapbooking WOTG (G1098), some Bitty Sparkles (Z1263) and Red Bead Charms (Z3139). The following tips will explain how I filled the decorative sections.

Cut the blue print paper as per instructions on the stamp carrier sheet and use the stamp included in the WOTG with Fern ink (Z2650).  Stamp it again on a scrap with Cranberry ink (Z2116), cut just the ‘Christmas’ and layer this with foam tape. Last of all  colour with the Carmine Shin Han Marker (Z2448) over the top of the Fern ink and added some bitty sparkles.

This one was cut using the Cricut Artistry Cricut Cartridge (p 48).  The year was stamped using Typography (E1032).  Finish off with Red Enamel Gems and Bitty Sparkles.

The 3D trees are fun!  Cut 3 trees from Fern Cardstock as per instructions on WOTG stamp set and stamp with Fern ink.  Cover the stars with VersaMark ink (Z891), dip them into the jar of Silver Embossing Powder Z2067) and heat them up.

Next, score each tree down the middle, glue back to back as shown with Liquid Glass (Z679) and add Red Enamel Gems (Z3090)

To create a bit of variety in each section, add some polystyrene behind some of the papers.  The best adhesive for the job is Glue Dots (1772).  Use them to stick the polystyrene to the display tray and then to stick the paper to the polystyrene.
