Hey There Everyone in "Scrappyland"...Robbi here today
to show you a couple of little creations I have been working on for Artfull Crafts
Pippa has kindly come along to help me show you this first layout (actually she wouldn't get off the sheet and then lay down on it in the sun!....I have been told never work with Husbands and Animals...well that's my version of it!!!)
I have used the latest "Storyteller" collection from Kaisercraft and I absolutely love the flowers/roses and colours, I am thinking most of it is really following the lines of Graphic 45 and is made to be cut out, but for those of us that like fussy cutting its all good....for those of us that don't ...conn someone into it or have a go yourself - the worst you are going to do is have to run a sponge with vintage photo or sepia on it around your edges and hide the roughness of your cutting, however some of the rough edges are warranted and remember scrapping isn't always straight lines and nice neat edges.
Ok so here's a little quick treat for those of you that would like to create this layout....I will give you some instructions:-
Art of Life - Creative (base)
Storyteller - Vintage Die Cut, Myth, Reminisce, History, Journal
Kaisercard - Forest
Chipboard for lifting
Misc goodies - paper doily, shabby rose strip, mini roses
*Using the Vintage Die Cut paper, remove the inside piece leaving the very inside dark line, ink all the edges,
*Using the Creative paper, heavily distress and ink the edges,
*Using the chipboard cut strips add to the die cut frame, and then add to the base as shown - make sure there is a edge around the inside frame so you can tuck the flower strip inside etc
*Using the doily cut in half and add to the top and bottom as shown on the base
*Using the History paper cut a piece 6 1/4' x 7 1/2" (16x19cm) distress ink and add as shown over the doily pieces
*Using the Myth paper, cut a "L" shape about 1" deep and add to the History paper as shown, it is to just giver a different colour edge
*Using the Forest cardstock, cut a piece 5" x 6 1/4" (12.5 x 15cm), distress, off set and add as shown
*Using the Reminisce paper borders fussy cut round the flower strip, ink the edges trim off the excess length and add to the base as shown under the left side framework, using the leftover piece, add some chipboard and ad to the top left corner
*Using the pocket watch embellishment from the Reminisce paper, fussy cut it out, ink the edges and add as shown to the flower strip
*Border punch 2 strips using the same punch and offset, ink the edges and add as shown
*Using the Journal paper, cut out the blue flower piece from the bottom right hand corner, ink and add as shown to the bottom right of our framework
*Find a nice saying that goes with your photo - I have used the Friends Forever one from the Journal paper, ink the edges, add to chipboard and add as shown
*Add a Papervine - Shabby Rose rose strip as shown with some smaller roses in the centres
Congratulations your layout is now complete.
So let Liz know when the Storytellers paper comes in tell liz you would like these ones above and get creating....here is a closer peek at the layout (without Pippa!)
Ok here is a card I also made using the same paper collection
once again some more fussy cutting but by now you should have mastered it!
For this card I have used the Confession and Fiction papers from the Storyteller Collection, along with some watercolour paper for the inside layer, so it gives the card some strength
I have cut out one of the wires with the birds attached from the Cardamon paper and some little postage stamps from one of the Tim Holtz mini dies. The base paper is Tarragon paper and the Ginger paper is the brown coloured one with the writing on in the centre. I have lifted this layer with chipboard. The envelope is made using the Nutmeg paper and of course it wouldn't be a Kaisercraft layout without using some goodies from the Collectables Goodies.
Well that's it from me for this Blog post I hope you are all well and now hanging out to get your hands on the Storyteller papers and have a go at the layout. When you are reading this I will be flying home from Auckland after being at the V8 Supercars over the Anzac Weekend.....can you imagine it...the vibration from the cars, the noise from the cars and now and then the smell from the cars as they wiz past at over 200ks.....oh yes and then theres the hot drivers in their driving suits....your naughty ! when I said hot I meant "HOT" because those cars get up to some horrendous temperatures and the guys are dripping wet when they leave the vehicles......now that's what I'm talking about lol
