La Vie En Rose Sampler

My layout today features my favourite scrapbook product – Flip Flaps!  The design is adapted from one shared on Pinterest which featured a birthday cake.  I don’t know the name of the original creator.  I loved that layout but it was a bit of a fiddle.  I’ve streamlined the process so it can adapt to any theme.

My Bunch

The flower pot design comes straight from the CTMH Artistry Cricut Cartridge.  You make it up on a piece of 10″ x 6″ paper and when everything is stuck down you cut it in to sections ready for the Flip Flaps.  This idea can be changed up to suit any theme.

I shared this layout at a class on the weekend and my customers came up with some fabulous variations.

The La Vie En Rose WOTG, papers, assortment and complements suit any photo theme. If you use only the black and white patterns you can team it with any solid colour for a real wow page.   Place your order with your CTMH Consultant.

Australasian January Stamp of the Month Blog Hop – Beloved Bouquet S1601

Standard

Blog BadgeWelcome to the January Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop.  This is a circular hop.  If you arrived from Maz’s Blog 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 Beloved Bouquet (S1601) stamp set which is January’s Stamp of the Month.

S1601Base and shade stamps are fun to use.  Stamp the base first and then the shaded line drawing.  Many variations in looks are possible.  My layout today lets one bloom be the focal point.

I used Pomegranate ink for my base and Eggplant for the shading on the flower.  I kept the leaf as just an outline. The wavy lines are stamped using New England Ivy and Jumping Geometrics (D1637) .  The papers come from La Vie En Rose.

The design can be used for a card too.  Simple and elegant.

Carborders – What’s that all about?

Standard

I share a love of paper, stickers, bling, inks and stamps with card makers and album makers.  We are often all creating in the same room at a workshop.

One of the things I love to do for my customers is offer the opportunity to try new products via a Make and Take project.  I’m always in a dilemma about whether the project should be a card or a page border.

So, I put my thinking cap on and found a way to make something everyone can use!  It’s called a Carborder. We begin with a 4″ strip of cardstock and create a piece of art to decorate the right hand side.  Once completed, card makers can score and fold and album makers can stick it to a page.

Carborder

Scored and folded it is a card that will fit in a C6 envelope.

We will be featuring Carborders for each of our NEW paper collections at this month’s Paper Picnic.  If you are local to Perth, why not join us?

We’ll have 7 stations set up – one for each new paper collection.  Click here to see them!

Each station will offer the opportunity to create one ‘Carborder’ that you can turn into a card or a page border. The photos above show our La Vie En Rose Carborder.  You will receive a kit with all supplies pre-cut and be shown a different stamping technique at each station.

Once you’ve made your Carborders, head back to the tables to work on your projects for the rest of the day.  We will have a sampler pack of new products and a handout of page sketches to use your Carborders in your albums.
