Beautiful – using 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi Everyone, I was so very excited to be asked to join the 2Crafty Chipboard Design Team – I would like to share with you my very first project using their wonderful chippies!!! so here is a layout I created using a selection of the beautiful products.

I wanted to create a layout using beautiful florals, flourishes and butterflies, so I chose these lovely Chipboards to add embellishment to my layout.

Once I created a base for my layout using a couple of beautiful papers, I then set to work painting my chosen chipboards with white paint, I didn’t want it to look to perfect, so it was quite quick and easy.

I love to add stitching to my projects, mainly on the papers but the long border chipboard has perfect little holes on it – so I had to add some colour coordinating stitching.

I love to also add height and dimension to my projects and this chipboard is perfect for doing that, once painted I started to shape some of them.

I then arranged all my fussy cut flowers and chipboard embellishments around my photo.

I shaped and layered up the beautiful Chipboard butterflies and added a pretty rhinestone to the centres.

I tucked some of the flourish & thistle Shrub chipboards in and around my photo to finish.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope I have inspired you to use chipboards on your projects, shape them and layer them to give height and dimension.

You can find lots more images and close up’s on my Instagram page: The Fussy Cutter

Lilac Whispers Scrapbook Layout

Good morning all

Today it absolute pleasure to bring you this layout using the, oh so pretty, Lilac Whispers collection. Despite its name of Lilac Whispers, all those that have seen it have agreed it is a subtle collection of mint and aquas with a hint of Lilac, so if you don’t like Lilac (as I don’t) please don’t let its name deter you from buying it! Lol

imageTo make this layout, first I took a sheet of Elephant Ears grey Kaisercard for the background and gutted the reverse to save for later. I then took the sheet of Illusion paper from the pack and cut it in half, after trimming one inch from two sides. I then reversed one side and joined it to the front side and adhered it to the card. I used a 12″ sticker from the sticker sheet to cover the join.

imageI then took a retired butterfly stamp set, (very similar to this one here) and added some random stamping on the background.

I then took pieces of the Mauve paper and the reverse side of the Jade paper and added the first layer using Mounting Foam tape. I also added a further layer using the front side of the Jade paper.

I then mounted the photograph on to the gutted piece of Elephant Ears Kaisercard and mounted that using the mounting tape too.

I then took a large section of the floral cluster from the sticker sheet and mounted it on foam pads for extra dimension. I also tucked several leaves for the collectables pack under the floral cluster and also a small piece of punched trim from the Illusion paper beneath the photo together with another collectable from the pack.

imageI then used a collectable clock face (cut in two) to poke out from behind the photo layers and I addd three butterflies and the title from the collectables pack.

imageFinally I added the mounted expression and a flourish of Rhinestones and some individual rhinestones to give the flowers a little sparkle.

imageThis super pretty collection is a must to add to any stash..I do hope you like what you see.

Golden Glisten Collection Scrapbook layout

Hi all,

Sometimes you come across a collection that really inspires you.. and the Kaisercraft Glisten Collection is most certainly one of those collections.

gold-layout……and in particular the stunning Glittering Foil Paper with amazing foiled golden stars.  I also loved the Glimmer foil paper with lots of starry lights. I first drew an ‘organically’ shaped Christmas tree and cut it out.

christmas-tree-templateI then added sparkles using the new, fabulous, Kaiser Gel pens and gold stickles.

I then ‘decorated’ the tree with a star from the Collectables Pack , some Honey coloured Paper Blooms.

Next I matted the photo, of my own tree, on some Coconut weave cardstock  and punched some stars on the border and double matted the photo on a sheet of paper from the collection.

I then took the gorgeous Crystal glitter paper, the Gleaming Foil Paper and the reverse of the Glimmer Foil Paper and layered each piece on more of the Coconut cardstock whilst tucking in a gold paper doily behind the layers.

gold-close-upI added some of the new Hemp cord and made a ‘string’ of decorations using several of the baubles from the collectables pack. I then added a star and a saying from the pack at the bottom and I made a tassel from the hemp cord to add to the bottom. I also added two strings of metallic hemp around the photo too and some of the small black and gold sayings from the 6″ paper pad.

I also used two of the wood flourishes from the Christmas Flourish Pack and added gold glitter to them. I then added a quote from the collectables pack at the bottom of the tree and added a final gold deer from the pack and another gold glittered deer wood flourish ‘prancing’ off the patterned papers. To finish I punched two sections of starry punch and added two strips of the black and gold paper from the pad.
