Today and Everyday using Gums and Roses

Hi Everyone,
Today I would like to share with you a quick and easy multi photo layout using the Gums and Roses Collection. I wanted to challenge myself to use more than two photos on a layout this month, so I have created this layout to achieve that goal. I have also made my own flowers for this first time that are featured on this layout. I love the 3D effect that these flowers have.

To create this layout I have followed the steps below:

  • Find the centre of the layout and make a cross
  • Adhere two landscape and portrait photos (all 11 x 10.2 cm) alternating to the centre
  • Fussy cut the “today and every day” element from Everyday Moments and foam tape to the centre of the layout
  • Fussy cut some of the small flower clusters from Fussy Cuts Eucalypt Posey and layer under the “today and every day” element
  • Glue Pink Flowers to the flower cluster in each corner

I hope I have inspired you to create a beautiful multi photo layout with the Gums and Roses Collection today.
Stay Safe and Happy Crafting!

Uniquely Creative – Tropical Dreams

Hi Everyone,

Here is a layout I’ve created using the gorgeous Tropical Dreams collection from Uniquely Creative. This is a new company we are now stocking, I just love their beautiful scrapbooking collections and coordinating products.


I have created this layout using a few papers from the collection, I would advise purchasing the paper pack as you get two of each paper and you will need a couple of extra sheets of some and I also have another layout on the go using this collection.

Below are some brief instructions on how to re-create my layout.


Products used: Uniquely Creative, Tropical Dreams: Sunset UCP2022 x 2|Under The Sea UCP2023 x 2|Paradise UCP2021|Pearls Iridescent UCE1728|Bubbles Texture Die UCD1896|White Smooth Cardstock CD650 x 3|White DMC Cotton







I have used the Tropical Dreams Paper Pack

1.) Cut in half (horizontal) the two Sunset papers, I have then used the two top sections from both papers, put together to form my base as I wanted the top and bottom of my base paper to be pale.

2.) – Cut the white card down to 29.5cm x29.5cm, mat this onto your base.

3.) – Do the same as in step 1.) with the two Under The Sea papers, as I just wanted the pale pink script showing, it doesn’t matter if one half of the script is up side down, this section should then measure 28.5cm x 28.5cm. Sew around the edge with white cotton, mat onto your layout.

4.) – Cut a circle from another sheet of white card, sew using white cotton, mat onto your layout.

5.) – Use the Bubbles Die, cut about 4 from a white piece of card.

6.) – Fussy cut lots of flowers from the Paradise papers.

7.) – Mat your photo onto your layout, arrange the flowers and bubbles die-cuts around the white frame and your photo. Add in the left over little circles from the die-cut around your photo.

Back in stock is the Wise & Free collection, below are two layouts I’ve created using the Paper Pack & on the second one, I’ve used the Arty doodles stamp set.




I have also used the gorgeous Doily Elements Metal Die, which is now in stock.

You can find more of my projects and sneak peeks of new collections and products over on my Instagram page – The Fussy Cutter. Please credit me when posting any of my creations on social media, thank you.

Happy Scrapping!!!!!!!

Beautiful with Bombay Sunset

Hello everyone,

Denise here with my last project using the lovely  Bombay Sunset Kaisercraft collection .

Photo 20-06-2017, 18 57 07This time I have used a Kaisercraft BTP  Wall Art Heart .beyond-the-page-large-heart-silhouette-wall-artI used the inside heart a while ago on another project so am using the frame and background base this time.

I painted around the inside of the heart shape with some white Kaisercolour paint

This time I used the minty green colourway papers showing how versatile this collection can be, although vibrant and bright it can be cool and restful too.

I started by taking  some of  the Music paper  and using the green side covered the back base.

Next I covered the front with the Rosewood paper, again using the green side.

My photo was matted on to some of the green side of Mumbai paper and placed in the middle of the background .

Before sticking the top frame to the base I went round the edges of the heart and the outside with some Tumbled Glass Distress ink

Once this was done it was time to embellish.

I die  cut some foliage from some of the papers from the 6.5 x 6.5  pad.

Photo 20-06-2017, 18 56 24Fussy cut some of the leaves and punched some flowers out. These were all layered up with foam tape.

Photo 20-06-2017, 18 56 21I also used some paper flowers, rhinestones and cheesecloth amongst the flowers which were sprayed with some pink Kaisermist.

I hope you like this project and have been inspired to go and have a play !

Chrissy here with a layout kit (which you can purchase over on the Merly Impressions website) made using the gorgeous Graphic 45 Portrait of a Lady collection. Included in the kit you will find detailed instructions with photos and stash to create the two layouts below.

2017-03-27 09.13.05-1These G45 papers are absolutely gorgeous, they are perfect if like me you love fussy cutting, here are some close ups, the flowers were mainly cut from cut from the beautiful Victoria paper.

2017-03-27 09.13.20……and the adorable little perfume bottles and cream bottles were cut from the Isabella paper, you will have lots left over, they make ideal embellishments for cards or other projects, layer them up, they look fab.

2017-03-27 09.13.27-2Here is the second layout, mainly using the more gold coloured papers and lots of the pretty ornate frames and the portraits.

Rose Tutorial

Hi Everyone,

Nearly time for another bank holiday with lots of time to play!

Last month I showed you how to make gift boxes which were travel themed and quite masculine so this time I thought I’d share these beautiful roses to pretty them up for our female friends/relatives. These were also used on my Frame recently.


I made the box in the same way using 12×12″ sheets of POP collection, click here for the tutorial, the base is Frosting and the top is Sugar – you may notice that I have punched semi-circles into two sides of the lid to make it easy to open.


I used the lovely Weave embossing folder and some white Kaisercraft cardstock cut to 4×4″ and inked with Black Soot to create a mat for my decorations.  I like to use cut and dry with my inks as you can really get into small areas with this.


Now onto the roses for which I must give credit to Hels Sheridan for the inspiration.

Start with 3 punched (or stamped and cut out) six petaled flowers – I have a variety of punches and dies which I prefer to use. I think these beautiful Decorative flower dies from Kasiercraft will be my next purchase to try with this method – watch this space!


Cut into them as below, removing the tip of one petal to reduce the bulk – you should now have 5 pieces. This paper is Lollipop, I wanted to show that the design on the paper does not matter as it will look completely different once completed.


Next, glue the tabs on the larger pieces and roll and glue the edges on the smaller petals.

I prefer to use a fast drying wet glue to do this although any glue would work.


Once dry, curl the petals and push the point on the largest piece up to form a flat base and fill with glue, sit the smaller pieces inside, finishing with the smallest.


It should now look like this and is ready for plenty of glitter!


To complete the project I added lots of leaves cut with the Kaisercraft Decoratives leaves die and the green side of the Lollipop paper. Plus a swirl in white using Foliage die, and some twine, twisted and glued under the bloom.

And, of course more bling – Rhinestones and Stickles.

Check back soon for more inspiration from the team.
