Welcome back to another wonderful Saturday here on our Weekly Scrapper blog! I have some very fun treasures to share with you today. I hope that they will inspire you to jump out of your comfort zone and create something uniquely you!
Who says you have to put photos only into layouts? Mini albums are a fabulous way of using your precious photos. They are not only fun to create, but are also a perfect gift, and bring a smile to anyone’s face by sharing memories that have so much love and meaning. Mini albums are not only a perfect gift but they also don’t take much time to create. What enjoyment for both you and the one receiving the album!
After discovering this gorgeous mini album on the blog Time To Create, I knew I just had to share it. I highly recommend stopping by for a visit; you will be so inspired by Alicia McNamara, plus you will see all of the pages of her mini album. You can never create too many mini albums! 🙂
Would you like to learn a new technique? Today you are sure to be so inspired by Julie Ebersole and her fabulous watercoloring technique. You will love the color combinations that Julie uses. Pop on over to her blog Paper Trufflez to see more of her fun creations.
Julie shows how easy these cards are to make using the die from Hero Arts Paper Layering Pineapple. Julie’s step-by-step tutorial makes creating this card very fun; click here to follow along. Go ahead and give this a try; you will really enjoy creating this project!
Nothing says spring better then a bouquet of flowers! This adorable card will certainly brighten anyone’s day. Here is another fun card to try, so break out your stamps and dies!
To get a very crisp black image, use Versafine Onyx Black ink to stamp your wildflowers, clear embossing powder, and then heat set. Embossing is a great way to watercolor as the embossing keeps your ink inside the lines. Amy used vellum for her background along with the die-cut Leafy Vine Cutting Plate with thick vellum. The vellum gives the card an opaque look. When added to a light grey note-card, it looks like faux embossing. For more inspiration from Amy, come with me over to her blog Stamp-N-Paradise.
Do you have an old mirror hanging around that you just don’t want to part with? Today I am going to share a way of turning that old mirror into something different and charming.
First of all, adding some dimension really gives the mirror a pop, and the appealing rosettes finish off the mirror in an attractive way. Giving the mirror a new paint job and adding a few rosettes gives this a sweet, new look. It isn’t expensive to create and the rosettes are so fun to make. Click here for a full tutorial on making your rosettes, and then be sure to visit Confessions of a Serial Do-It-Yourselfer for more makeovers for your home.
These peanut marshmallow bars are made up of everything you would want in a treat – sweet, salty, crunchy, and very satisfying! The best part is they are very easy to make and go a long way.
This is one of those fun summer treats you can take on picnics, family get-togethers, baseball games, etc. It is a great make-ahead dessert. Once completed, it also holds up really well for a few days. You will have no problem finishing this fabulous treat. Click here and I will take you over to The Little Epicurean where you will get your yummy recipe. Enjoy! 🙂
Thank you for sharing a bit of your Saturday with me. Hope you have been inspired today to try something new. I am looking forward to seeing you back soon. Have a great weekend!
