Hello, my friends! Welcome to another inspirational day here on Weekly Scrapper. I just returned home from a fabulous Stamp & Scrapbook Expo show in Denver. Thank you to those who came and said hello to me. It was so fun seeing you again! I have been collecting some really fun projects to share with you today. I hope you can find some time this weekend to create some of your own. Thank you for sharing a part of your Saturday with me, and enjoy the inspiration!
This layout is one that will help you share just exactly who you are. I love this because it is about your life; its a great way to display what you love and the things that are important to you. Pocket pages are an excellent choice for this layout because you can easily add photos to this memorable layout. It will be treasured forever by those who love you!
Lynn used the 12 x 12″ Soiree Collection from Bo Bunny to create her cards. To add some dimension through layering, Lynn backed some of the photos with the Lattice Frame Craft Die and some of the paper from the 6 x 6″ paper pad. The layered chipboard is a great element that will bring dimension to your pages. Adding embellishments such as buttons, glitter sprays, and paste will bring life to your layout! Would you like to see what else she did to create this fun layout? Let me escort you over to the Bo Bunny blog where you will enjoy all the details Lynn shares. And I’d like to thank Lynn for sharing a fun way to scrap about the things we love!
It is always wonderful to have “Congratulations” cards on hand. I thought you might enjoy this sweet handmade card created by the very talented Amy Sheffer. Shaker cards are really an eye-catcher with all of the beautiful pieces inside. They really add a touch of cheer to the occasion.
Whether you have made dozens of shaker cards or if this is your very first, I highly recommend stopping by Pickled Paper Designs where Amy shares some helpful tips on how to create this adorable card. A big thank you to Amy for her wonderful inspiration!
Don’t you just love how the flowers on this amazing card by Jill Foster are so bold and vibrant? Jill added some Colorless Blender directly from the refill bottle, and flicked some of the paint using a paintbrush to give some added splatters to the watercolored background.
Jill used an ink blending tool and foam pad to add background inking. Adding an inked background still keeps the flowers bold and bright. The subtle background stamping was done using Penny Black stamps. It’s time to pull out those Copic markers and have some fun. Let me take you on over to Studio Sessions Art where you will find the products needed to create this beautiful card. You will certainly brighten up anyone’s day by sending them this handmade, treasured card.
