Just a quickie, featuring a very quick video I did on Scrapbooking on the go. I do this often when I'm going out of town. I know, for instance, that I will be up later ø than the family members I am traveling with. In this instance, I went with my daughter to a class she was taking out of town for being a teaching reading specialist.....the location was way out by the airport....so I knew I'd have some down time in the hotel with not many resources around to travel to...So I was perfectly happy with my 'on the go' papercrafting stash I brought with me. A quick view of my must have's when I travel:
I realize after reviewing the video, I said my storage box was about 1/2" wide...it IS about 1/2" thick, and holds 12x12 papers comfortably. It's just nice and compact, and I can slip it into my suitcase easily. I didn't mention, but also pack a small shoulder bag (carry-on) with my Cuttlebug, stamps, inks and the tools I show in the video, I put in little zipped clear make up bags...all visible and easily accessible. Thanks so much for stopping by!
And here is a copy of a layout Ashley Horton created using the sketch:
Here is my take on the sketch:
I used Altenew Matjestic Bloom to accent the photo, and the background paper & cut aparts are part of Felicity Jane March Scrapbooking kit. I also, sponged some Rose Quartz ink on the background to soften up page. The black border under the photo is crepe paper that I stitched and gathered. Finished off the layout with a few rhinestones sprinkled here and there. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hello, doing a 'kind-of' follow up video in my tag series, which I haven't done for awhile, so here we go with some examples of tags made, mainly with paper, scissors, glue, stamps and dies, I
Like to use my supplies, and make my own clusters, so added into the mix are some stickers from kits here and there and whatever I can create using my stamps & dies, papers, copic markers, stitching and whatever else I have in my stash. It' s all just showing you my process of making embellishments for scrapbook pages, cards and various other paper crafting projects. Thanks so much for stopping by. You can purchase my handmade embellishments on eBay under fritztrail29, or in my etsy shop at suzannebwebb.etsy.com. Thanks so much for stopping by.
Hello! Made a quick Birthday tag using some Simon Says Stamp goodies! I made two mats using the My Favorite Things stitched scallip dies, die cut and embossed a flowe and leaves from SSS Sketch Ranunculous stamp set, embossed with Ranger fine detail gold and colored in with copic markers. I decided I needed a bit of texture, so I gathered and stitched a folded piece of black crepe paper, added a strip of gold striped washi tape and some Felicity Jane star sequins. I finished the tag off by adding the sentiment and tiny heart border from SSS 'Sending & Wishing' stamp set, topped the tag with a crushed velvet ribbon!
Well, this isn't the card I had started with, but I messed up the background and had to add more clouds to cover up, which isn't bad, just a bit more 'busy' than my original idea......for this card I used MFT stamp & die set, Fall Friends, and the dies for the landscape & fence Indint see a name for, I'm assuming they go along with the 'Barnyard Friends' set. The clouds are from a lawn Fawn die set, the black sequin stars are Felicity Jane. I used copic markers to color in the images. The patterned paper I used for the hill is Maggie Holmes Bloom for Crate Paper. Oh, and that little twiggy tree is a die from Altenew.
Back again, twice in one day!!! Here with the My Favorite Things sect has challenge #321. I started out following the sketch exactly....but then my shaker window didn't have the right diecut.....it's still relatively close.... I used MFT's 'The Whole Herd' for this card, and I used a crafter's workshop chicken wire stencil for the background using Tim Holtz distress inks. I colored in the cows and chickens using copic markers. I used Papertrey Ink clear cardstock to back the shaker circle (the large one), the black cardstock is Bazzill, the white is Neenah. I used Tim Holtz sponge distresses to spread the ink out. I added fun foam to the back of the main panel, and diecut in the same holes to make the shaker component. The sequins used are 28 Lilac Lane (I love these little tins, they are LOADED with sequins of different sizes and colors in the same family....the price point is great too!). I even decorated the inside of the card, which I am obsessed with lately....a card isn't complete until I do this.....I used the chicken image again, along with the nest, and water colored a little grounding image below, using Kuretake watercolors.
This card was so fun to create using the My Favorite Things 'The Whole Herd' stamp & die set(especially since we live on a farm :). Thanks so much for stopping by, please subscribe and check out my YouTube channel!
