Autumn Vase

Hello my crafty friends!  Welcome back to Weekly Scrapper on this beautiful Saturday.  I just got back from another wonderful Stamp & Scrapbook Expo show in Marlborough, MA.  It was such a fun time for everyone.  I was very inspired by so many wonderful ideas and projects, and I’m really excited to share some of those wonderful ideas with you.  Since you are here visiting our blog that means that you are ready for some wonderful inspiration and creative therapy. Grab your favorite drink and/or treat, and sit back, relax, and enjoy the inspiring projects I have to share with you today!

The Fruit Stand By Mary Ann Jenkins

This adorable layout was created by Mary Ann Jenkins.  Shaker cards are all the rage right now in the world of card making. They are not only interactive and adorable, but they are also so much fun to make. And they are easier to create than you think!  Why not take it to the next level and add them onto your scrapbook pages?

The Fruit Stand

Queen & Company have adorable Fruit Basket Shaker kits.  You will totally fall in love with these shaker filling pieces.  What a perfect way to bring your favorite fruits alive!  You will have so much fun creating with these that you won’t know when to stop.  Everything coordinates perfectly and their shaker cards and elements are very easy to use.  Your imagination will run wild!  Let me escort you over to I Rock Paper & Scissors where Mary Ann will show you her techniques to create this adorable layout.  Be sure and visit Queen & Company as well so you can check out all the amazing treasures they have to offer.  I am sure your mind is spinning with all the fun and different ways you will be using shaker elements!  Have fun creating, my sweet friends!

Cafe Parisian Card Set By Elena Olinevich

You will love the contrast of the detailed elements and layers on top of these adorable cards created by a Elena Olinevich.  Elena used the Cafe Parisian Collection from Graphic 45.  There are so many stunning floral papers found in this collection.  The best part about these pages is that they are great to fussy cut to create your own embellishments.  Flowers add the perfect finishing touch to any beautiful project; you can see how adding a few paper flowers made each card more dimensional.

Cafe Parisian Card Set

Paper piecing is such a fun way to combine the paper layers with fussy cut elements.  I hope you’ve been inspired to give this technique a try; you will be so glad you did.  Take your cards up a level and add some chipboard, stamps, and even some dies to create an absolutely stunning card.  Who wouldn’t be smiling from ear to ear when they opened up the mailbox to find this beautiful treasure?  So pull out your scissors and start having fun today!

Autumn Vase By Riikka Kovasin

Before we know it, we will start feeling fall in the air, and those summer nights will turn into golden autumn evenings. Why not add a beautiful touch of autumn to your home by adding accents of sunflowers in a beautiful autumn vase. Sunflowers are at their peak in September so now is a great time to bring some into your home.

Autumn Vase

This unique handmade sunflower vase was created by adhering some thick yarn and a flower-like embellishment to a tin pot.  Riikka added some different mediums to her vase to achieve this look.  You are probably dying to know exactly how she created such a masterpiece, so please follow me on over to Paperiliitin for step-by-step instructions.  Bring beauty to someone special with this handmade sunflower vase.  It will make the perfect gift!

Pie Shakes By Tonia Larson

This build-your-own pie milkshake can be made with any kind of pie!  This is the best way to use up any leftover pie.  I know what you’re thinking….leftover pie?  Is that such a thing?  Maybe not always, hahaha!  These are the best way to beat the heat or to just enjoy a yummy Pie Shake.  Keep this recipe on hand for when you have an extra pie during the holidays!

Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt Pops are creamy and delicious, and they are packed with healthy goodness, too.  That makes them twice as fun!

Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt Pops

Tangy yogurt, peanut butter, and three additional ingredients are whisked together into a light and creamy mix that is poured into popsicle molds and frozen until solid.  Waiting for the popsicles to freeze is the hardest part of this recipe! Let’s pop on over to Just A Taste where Kelly has the ingredients and recipe waiting for you.  This will be a fun treat to let your children jump in and help.  I am so excited to have my little grandkids over this weekend to give this a try.  I have to say I am looking forward to tasting one of them as well! 🙂

Microwave Flower Press BY June Olsen

Are you one who loves to preserve and press flowers?  It can be so discouraging waiting for the flowers to dry before you can create with them.  Pressing flowers is a wonderful way to preserve their beauty, and the process couldn’t be more simple.  Today I will share a fun technique that will only take minutes.  Who would have ever thought to use a microwave?  Microwave flower pressing really preserves the colors and hues of the flowers and foliage much better than traditional flower pressing.  Microwave pressing flowers offers a wonderful way to savor the beauty of summer long after it’s blooms have faded from the garden.

Hooray By Jill Keller

This layout is for those of you who love to add some hand stitching on your layouts.  What an adorable way to remember what age your precious child or grandchild was in their photo.  I love the look of sewing on all my papercrafts, from scrapbooking layouts to greeting cards.  Sewing and embroidery adds dimension without a lot of bulk and has the added benefit of attaching elements to the page in the process.  You can sew by hand or with your machine, and both techniques are easier than you might think.  I love the character it gives to the layout!

Hooray

Scrapbook pages are such treasured moments and memories.  Don’t you just love to pull out your scrapbooks and reminisce about all those fond memories?  Down the road you will feel like you walked through memory lane!  Jill captured a sweet moment of her darling daughter on her 5th birthday.  Jill’s layout is full of fun elements, and she has such a great way of giving layouts a nice contrast.  I am sure you would love to see more of Jill’s talent with her scrapbooking, so let me take you on over to Creating Us.  Take some time and enjoy her inspiration of her beautiful creations.

Pressed Flower Coasters By Marianne Koo

Tiny pressed flowers peek through glass tiles on these decorative coasters.  Make a set and bring a hint of nature into your living room, office, or even your dining room.  Dried flower coasters also make lovely gifts, and the best part is bringing in the flowers you found in your own backyard!  Press the flowers yourself, or you can use pre-pressed blooms.  You can use any variety of flowers or leaves that you love.  A collection of coasters is even more charming if each one is unique!

They will make the most perfect gift!  Are you ready to see a step-by-step tutorial on how to make these beautiful coasters?  Click here and Marianne Koo will show you exactly how she created these.  I just love bringing the outdoors into my home and always feeling the beauty of summer!  You are going to love these!

Chocolate & Berries Yogurt Dessert

Dive into a frosty layered dessert with fudgy cookies, whipped fluffy yogurt, hot fudge sauce, and fresh berries.  Is your mouth watering yet?  This fabulous dessert can be made way ahead of time and it is much easier than it looks!

Chocolate & Berries Yogurt Dessert

This impressive dessert will leave your guests wondering how long this must have taken you to make.  It is rich tasting, yet healthier than many desserts.  The chocolate is a great complement to the berries and yogurt.  It is perfect for those moments when you want an impressive dessert, but don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen.  You will certainly be the hit of your party with this refreshing summer dessert!  Click here so you can copy the recipe.  This is one you don’t want to miss out on!  Enjoy 🙂

Living The Life By Amanda Baldwin

Oh Happy Day By Mona Pendleton

If you love Mixed Media then you will love today’s inspiration.  I fell in love with the mixed media influenced background, the subtle textures, and the beautiful colors on this layout.

Oh Happy Day

This layout was created using clear gesso, then allowing it to dry to create a lot of texture. Mona used texture paste along with the memory box Texture Chicken Wire Stencil.

Happy Easter By Cindy Lawrence

Have you tried digital stamping yet?  Digital stamps are becoming increasingly popular.  They present a stamper with a whole new range of crafting opportunities.  Today I would like to share this darling Easter card created by Cindy Lawrence.  Cindy really has a talent with her coloring technique using Copic markers. The fact that this image is a digital file, you can print it as many times as you desire.
