Leaves of Gold – Layout and Card by Riikka

August 6, 2017

 

Hello everyone! How are you? Can you believe it’s August already? Luckily it’s only the start so it still feels like summer, but autumn will soon be slowly creeping in. Not that I have a problem with that. I rather like the beginning of the autumn with the long, warm evenings and the golden light that makes the pine trees appear to be deep red. And the leaves, the colorful leaves that start to turn to red, orange, yellow and gold and then rustle under your step. A wonderful time!

This time I did a layout to celebrate autumn and a card using the same techniques. Add a dandle or two to turn it into a birthday card, or send it just to make someone’s day, no special occasion needed!

Let’s get started with the tutorial so you can make your own golden leaves to greet autumn!

Dreamers and Dreams

Dreamers and dreams with Riikka

 

Hello there! How are you today? Doing fine, I hope! Today it’s Riikka here with a couple of guest projects. For these two I took inspiration from the Arrows and Dreamcatcher dies for a Native American feel. My first project is a layout, the second is a card.

The photo was taken a couple of years ago when I was on a local train, heading off to demo at a craft fair. If I recall correctly, it was my first time to demo at this event. Nowadays, I’m fortunate enough to demo there on regular basis. The warm tones of the photo and the gaze to the future fitted my page perfectly, so I did a layout that is about dreams and how to keep dreaming and reaching for one’s goals.

Pocket Cards with Shimmer Sheetz Lining

Pocket Cards with Shimmer Sheetz Lining By Judi Kauffman

by Judi Kauffman

I love making pocket cards. They’re easy, but impressive, the kind of card that announces ‘you’re worth the effort’! This time I designed a trio, working in an assembly-line fashion – all die cutting first, then all assembly. Using the same color palette throughout made it easy to coordinate all of the elements: bright yellow cardstock for the lacy portion of the pocket, a mix of red, burgundy, teal, and orange cardstock for the rest of the layers and some of the die cuts, Shimmer Sheetz for everything else.

Springtime with Riikka

March 5, 2017

Hi there again! It’s Riikka here with spring feelings! There’s still snow on the ground here, but the sun is shining more and the ever increasing amount of light really marks the start of springtime! Soon the birds will begin to migrate north and blooms will emerge and… well, it’s a wonderful time of the year!

To celebrate springtime, I made some ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) using green and brown – brown for the earth, soon to be revealed when the snow melts, and and green for the new plants emerging. I also made a layout using the same colors and dies and other supplies, but first let me show you how I made the cards!
