Leaves Of Gold By Riikka Kovasin

It is so hard to believe we are in the first week of September.  With that said, fall will be rolling in on us soon; so now is the time to start thinking about those beautiful fall colors, pictures, and layouts.  Fall is such a wonderful time of the year with all of the beautiful vibrant colors, and I must mention cooler temperatures!  This beautiful layout created by Riikka will really inspire you to celebrate autumn.


Leaves Of Gold

In Riikka’s layout she made her own golden leaves to greet autumn and embellish her layout.  Using the same techniques she also created this outstanding card.  Tip:  When creating a layout take a few moments to use some of the supplies you have out to create a card.  You’ll find that you will always have cards on hand, and it is such a great way to use up your scraps!

Leaves Of Gold

I love the outstanding job that Riikka did on this layout and card.  Click here and I will take you over to Elizabeth Crafts and Designs where you will find a full step-by-step tutorial on how Riikka put this beautiful layout together.  Be sure and check out her blog Paperiliitin where you are sure to be inspired by many more of Riikka’s outstanding projects.  Hope this has inspired you as much as it did me.

Shabby Chic Canvas By Evgenia Krapivina

Do you love the look of mixed media?  It is so beautiful and so much fun to create.  Mixed media is quite the trend right now, and the beauty of working with mixed media means anything goes. Working on canvas is so easy, and if you change your mind it is so easy to take things off and rearrange them.  The variety of materials you use will add great detail and makes your canvas a keepsake.  This masterpiece was created by Evgenia Krapivina who is an outstanding design team member for Kaisercraft.


Shabby Chic Canvas

This piece of art is all about texture, technique, and a whole lot of imagination.  What isn’t there to love when you are using stamps, inks, gesso, embossing, misting, distressing, and so much more?  Making mixed media canvas projects can also add beauty to your home. Display projects on your entry or end tables or add it as a decor piece to your wall. It can also be a great conversation piece.  I would like to thank Evgenia for sharing her never-ending talent with us.  Click here and I will take you over to the janekrapivina blog where you will always leave totally inspired to start your next project.  Have fun and let your imagination run free!

Merry Christmas

Saturdays-with-LeAnn

Welcome back, my dear friends, to Weekly Scrapper!  Today is a special day because it is “World Card Making Day”!  The party started yesterday with our “Freebie Friday” post, so if you haven’t yet entered to win that great prize of cardmaking supplies, make sure to visit our post from Friday HERE. For today’s celebration we are featuring all cards, and as I share these beautiful ideas and great techniques, my hope is that you will find some wonderful inspiration.  Isn’t it hard to believe that it is the first day of October?  We are at the very beginning of the holiday season, and dare I say that I am already starting to get into the holiday spirit?!  Now is a good time to begin to think of your holiday cards so I included a beautiful Christmas card below. It’s never too early to start getting your ideas together.

Thanks By Loll Thompson

This card was created using a fun and unique technique called marbling. What a stunning way to create some soft colors by using shaving cream and re-inkers.  What a great effect; I absolutely love this technique! It never surprises me what fun ideas cardmakers come up with to use on projects.  This technique is also a wonderful way to create lovely backgrounds.  I think you will love this and be very happy with the end results.  And did I say it was easy, too?

Thanks

Marbling

The second card was made with the leftover piece from the die cut above, using the marbling effect for the background.  Don’t you just love it when something so simple comes together and looks so beautiful?  If you have never done the marbling technique, you must give it a try!  Be sure to stop by the Stamping With Loll blog so you can get your products for these gorgeous cards and create some of your own.  Have fun with this technique!

Thinking Of You By Debby Hughes

When I think of hydrangeas, I think of fall. These flowers and leaves are colored so beautifully, giving the card such an elegant look.  I just love stamping and watercoloring and they combine to make it possible to create a piece of art.  The completed project is like a tiny painting!

Thinking Of You

Debby has really outdone herself with this watercolored card.  I highly recommend you stopping by and checking out her other projects, too.  For the complete supply list on what Debby used to create this beautiful card so you can get started on one of your own, click here and I will be honored to escort you over to visit her blog, Lime Doodle Design.

Merry Christmas By Betsy Veldman

It isn’t too early to get started on your Christmas cards!  Wouldn’t it be nice to have them done early so you can avoid the stress and enjoy some holiday spirit?  I say it every year and I never get it done, but (drum roll, please) I do have to say I have started on mine already this year!  Yay for me, right?

Merry Christmas

Christmas cards are fun to make and they really do put you in the spirit of the holiday.  This lovely card recreates that sweet, warm feeling of Christmas.  This Winter Village stamp set is to die for, and won’t it be so fun to create with it?  A big thank you goes out to Betsy for sharing her talent with these cute stamps.  Let’s pop on over to the Paper Scissors Superheros blog so you can see how Betsy created this beautiful card.

White Chocolate Mummy Truffles By Vera Zecevic

Are you looking for the perfect centerpiece and favors for your Halloween party?  These White Chocolate Mummy Truffles are absolutely perfect for your party, or to share with family and friends. Not only are they super cute, but they are delicious, too!

White Chocolate Mummy Truffles
These yummy little mummies are a simple cola-flavored chocolate truffle melted and decorated with white chocolate.  Your guests will fall in love with them and you will be a hit at the party.  I suggest you make several copies of the recipe; I can promise that you will get asked over and over again for it.  Oh, and you better make a few batches because they are so tasty they won’t last long!

Thank you for joining me in celebrating World Card Making Day!  I hope you have received some sparks of inspiration that will carry over to the people lucky enough to receive one of your handmade cards.

Happy Birthday By Leslie Miller

When I discovered this sweet card on the Running With Scissors blog, it automatically made me smile.  This design is very versatile, so depending on what paper you use, it can be totally customized to what you need. Boy or girl, young or old, (let’s not say old, but maybe advanced in age. 🙂 ) Often times, I am pulling together a card at the last minute and need a card in a hurry. This is one of those cards that you can make several of and have them on hand.  Leslie colored her design with Copic markers on X-press It Blending Card. I love how the colors blended!

Happy Birthday

Saturdays-with-LeAnn

Welcome back, my friends, to Weekly Scrapper!  I hope you are enjoying your summer, and are finding the time to be inside crafting, out of the heat. I feel honored today to share some fun projects with you. I hope you will be inspired and get some of those creative juices flowing. Relax and enjoy some time for yourself today!

The Good Life By Missy Whidden

When creating a scrapbook page, the photo itself is usually a major guide to your process, determining both color and embellishments.  You don’t want to overwhelm your photo so you can choose to go with lighter shades and subtle colors that will create nice dimension.

The Good Life

Missy created her layout around the stars.  She used the large star to layer behind her photo making her photo stand out.  Missy did some machine stitching along with sprays mists and paints on the background to create a soft, watercolor effect.  Let’s pop on over to Little Nugget Creations where Missy will give you some wonderful instructions on how she created this fun layout.  What a great way to go back and reminisce with your special photos!

Just For You By Julia Stainton

White on white is such a clean look. It can easily be dressed up to make it look more elegant; or add just a small amount of color for a more casual look. When working with lots of white, be sure to add dimension and/or texture to add some interest.

Just For You

What’s not to love about this adorable card designed by Julia Stainton? This is such a perfect card for any occasion! It’s also one of those cards that just say you are thinking of that special person. Julia has so many wonderful projects that you don’t want to miss out on, so be sure to visit her blog Belle Papier.  You will have endless inspiration for your week!

Gold Brush Lettering by Kristina Werner

Here is a beautiful card that is full of inspiration.  Watercoloring is such a beautiful technique and there are so many different water-based coloring mediums to choose from.  I just love working with watercolors because it is such a great way to splash some color onto a card.

Melon Ball Ice Cubes By Layla (Laylita) Pujol

There is nothing better on a hot summer day than something refreshing to drink!  I have the hardest time drinking plain water, but adding a lime or a lemon seems to make it taste so much better.  I came upon this recipe for making melon ice cubes and I am one happy camper with my water now.

Melon Ball Ice Cubes

This will also give your drinks some fun summer colors along with the flavor.  For a quick and easy drink, you can also place the melons in Sprite or sparkling water; add a squeeze of lime juice, and a mint to garnish. This simple drink not only looks beautiful, but has a delicious hint of melon, lime, and mint.  Such a refreshing summer drink!

Thank you for stopping by on this beautiful Saturday.  Stay out of the heat and enjoy doing some crafting. Be sure to visit again next week, as I have some more fabulous projects to share with you.  Have a great weekend!

“Amazing Day” Canvas By Anita Bownds

Here in sunny southern California the average temperature is in the high 80’s, so that means beach days and lots of pictures.

But this Coastal Escapes Collection is a must-have for all you beach lovers. Whether you’re a scapbooker, a card maker, or a mixed media queen there is something for everyone.

Don’t forget to use watercolor cardstock since you’ll be using water.
