Hi there...I am still creating with my December Hip Kit. This will be page 8 and there is still a stack of papers and embellishments left...but I need to move onto a new kit. I have way to much just sitting in my stash. I used a Just Nick cut file that I changed up. I substituted the heart for a star and some of the larger circles for smaller stars. The photo of Kobus and our grandson Lukas was taken in Plettenberg Bay. I love capturing these precious moments and recording them.
Supply list : Patterned papers: Hip Kit Exclusives; Cardstock: American Craft; Letter stickers: Amy Tangerine thickers; Clear Stickers; Pink Paislee (Memorandum); Flair: Hip Kit Exclusives; Acrylic word: My Minds Eye; Acrylic stars: Hip Kit Exclusives; Die cuts: Hip Kit Exclusives; Embroidery Floss: DMC Variegated; Ink: Tim Holtz Distress ink (Tumbled glass); Other: Silhouette Cameo.
Some close ups:
I coloured the white foam letters with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass distress ink and created an ombre effect with it.
I added all the acrylic stars that I had left of what was in the kit.
I just adore the effect the hand stitching adds to the page.
Thank you for visiting my blog today♥♥ I am so sorry that I don't get around to blog hop these days. My days are so full and when I have a few moments I choose to create...I hope you understand.
Hi there. February is always a month of excitement. It is time for our Scrapbook Studio Eersterivier Retreat. Nearly a week of creativity, lots of laughter, stunning time with friends who have become closer than family. This year Cariena asked me to make a kit that will be given away during the Retreat...so I was excited to see what she included in the parcel to me...and this is what I came up with:
Supply list: Patterned paper: Echo Park (Happy Camper); Cardstock: American Craft; Wood Veneer: Scrapbook Studio; Chipboard: Celebr8; Brads: I have no idea; Twine: WeR Memory Keepers; Embroidery Floss: DMC; Mist: Prima Color Bloom (Sunshine); Stencil: Heidi Swapp; Dies: Quickutz (stars and flower cookie cutter); Other mediums: Embossing powder: Lindy's Stamp Gang.
Some close ups:
I love to combine a load of different patterned papers and layer them. I outline the edges to create some separation between the layers.
The wooden stars were heat embossed.
I had to include just a smidgen of stitching :-P I created the journaling spot by cutting two different sizes of the flower die and layering them. The title was also heat embossed.
My "go-to" is to use enamel dots...and we forget about all the brads in our stash...time to use them up.
Thank you for visiting my blog today...I hope you found a bit of inspiration here ♥♥
I absolutely adore the Pink Paislee (Paige Evans) collections. When I saw the one patterned background in the December Hip Kit I knew that I wanted to use it for a background...peeking out from behind a cut file. The colours are perfect to scrap photos that was taken on a recent family photoshoot that Wynand and Nadia had. So here is my complete page:
Supply list: Patterned papers: Hip Kit Exclusives, Paige Evans; Cardstock; American Craft; Chipboard Title: Celebr8; Flowers: Prima; Die cuts: Paige Evans; Twine: Coats; Doily (gift from Scrap Affairs); Leaf die cuts: Hip Kit; Embossing Powder: Tsukineko; Other: Silhouette Cameo.
Some close ups:
I am totally obsessed with heat embossing and isn't that gold stunning?
Flowers that have sat in my stash for a while now...and I brought in black with the die cut leaves.
Another little flower cluster at the top of the photo.
A reminder that the little ones grow up way to quickly.
Hi there, this weekend I rediscovered Color Story Inspiration and decided to take up the challenge and play along with Case File 225. I scrapped a photo of myself taken when I was teaching my first event at Silverlakes in Pretoria. I am very pleased with how the page turned out. Here it is:
Supply list: Patterned papers: Kaisercraft (Finders Keepers); Cardstock: American Craft; Vellum: American Craft; Die cuts: Kaisercraft (Finders Keepers); Embroidery Floss: DMC; Ink: Ranger Archival Ink; Stamps: Finnabair (Dream on and Don't Forget to Fly); Other: Silhouette Cameo Clouds and Wings,
The Case File:
The Scheme: I used all 5 colours
Evidence: Clouds, stitching, things that fly (butterflies); circles, wings.
Testimony: I used the inspiration words "fly" and "dream". The journaling on the front is a quote by Erin Hanson that says; "There is freedom waiting for you, on the breezes of the sky, and you ask "What if I fall?" Oh but my darling, what if you fly?" The story behind this. Those that have followed my blog for a long time know that we are in full time ministry to the homeless and the addicted...that will always be a high calling from God and therefore the priority in my life. Over the years people have asked me whether I will put kits together or teach and my answer is always that "I know what I am and I know what I am not." Last year when Cariena asked me to pray about joining her for a mini event at Silverlakes in Pretoria...I wasn't too sure that it was the right thing. My darling husband urged me to go and do it...as long as whatever I do gives glory to the Lord...so I did it and loved every moment.
Some close ups:
Hand stitching is a bit of an addiction at the moment...and getting these vellum clouds onto the page without glue proved impossible...so ta da....stitch it! I had a larger die cut title in mind...but it just looked too heavy so I settled for the stamped title.
I am inspired to use the load of stamps in my stash. I adore the Finnabair stamps and on this layout I used quite a few of them.
The little row of hearts and the two circles were from the ephemera pack of the Kaisercraft Finders Keepers collection.
I just love the effect of the wings coming out from behind the photograph.....and no, I am no angel.
This quote was just perfect for this page....all in all I love how this page came about.
