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.
Hello there! It’s Riikka here to share two projects with you and they both come with a tutorial! This card has a step by step version and then the layout that I made as my other project has a video! Double treat, should I say! Like always both of the crafts use the same idea, steps, and materials but the form is just different.
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!
Hello there! It’s Riikka here today, guesting again for the Elizabeth Craft Designs team! How have you been lately? As Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I created two love-filled projects this time. As you can see from the top of the post, one of them is a card, but I also used same idea and products to make a layout as well.
Hello again! It’s Riikka here today guesting with some party projects! As I’ve mentioned in my previous posts, most of my step by step tutorials can be used for cards even if I’ve done the steps in a layout. This time I thought to do it the other way around and made a couple of easy but fun cards and then used the same idea in a layout as well.
Bakers – A Layout by Riikka Kovasin
Hi there! How has your week started? Can you believe it’s already October and Christmas is coming in about two months? Neither can I. But let’s still enjoy the autumn and the colorful leaves and not jump ahead into things. For this guest post I created a layout once more, this time using the Peel-Off Stickers as masks with the watercolors. You can find a step-by-step tutorial for the project at the end of this post. I did it a bit differently this time than usual.
Hi there and sunny summer time! It’s Riikka here from Paperiliitin blog guesting with another project! It’s great to be back playing with the Elizabeth Crafts Designs products! I consider myself a scrapbooker the most and love to use different mediums in my projects so I hope you are ready for some fun with paints!
Hello there, Sanna here again with another project for March! I love to use bits and pieces that I have left over from previous projects in my next artwork. That is exactly what I did when creating the Travel Layout. I used all the leftover pieces from the altered savings bank to create an A4 size layout.
Hello everyone, Sanna here again with my second blog post for January.
I love to use color on my layouts and I hardly ever use more than one photo per scrapbooking page. However, the Stitched Square die set inspired me to create an A4 size multiple-photo layout. Using the square dies to create such a page is lots of fun and very easy to do!
Here is how I created this layout:
1. Cut two strips of White Soft Finish Cardstock in appr. 8.5 x 2.75″ inch size. Run through a die cutting machine, three times each piece. Save the leftover strips for another project, as they look a little like photo negative strips and will be a fun starting point for another project!
Hello everyone and welcome to our August Designer’s Challenge. This month’s theme is Scrapbooking. We have 4 beautiful projects to show you, created by our talented design team. Our dies and peel-off stickers are wonderful for creating your very own personal scrapbook! And our Silk Microfine Glitter is just right for adding a little sparkle to your pages – or a LOT! We hope you find loads of inspiration in today’s projects.
First project is from Jackeline who created this fun scrapbook page for her brother who recently visited Florida with his wife and two kids. She created a beach theme scrapbook page using a combination of dies and real shells. The surfboards are cut using the basic tag shape from Tags & More 3 – Leaves and for the palm trees and sand dunes she used the Beach Edges. Jackeline also used the new Fitted Frame dies from the Els van de Burgt Studio collection which are great to use to frame pictures or to decorate cards. If you like to know how to create this fun beach theme scrapbook page, visit Jackeline’s blog HERE.
The next project is from Marsha who also used the new Fitted Frames for her 2 scrapbook pages. She cut a few inches off of each of her frames to create a playful look. Love how she used the new Ribbons & Jewels dies and the Alphabet 1 – Caps. Marsha created her own patterned papers using her favorite Gelli Arts gel plate. Love how they turned out! Find more info on Marsha’s blog HERE.
We love Brownie the Cow and what a fun die to use for a farm theme scrapbook page like Frances’s. Karen Burniston has designed more cute animals in her latest Farm release or use any of her previously released Character dies. (Collect the whole series!). Frances also used Fitted Frames, Alphabet 1 – Caps and Numbers & More – 1. Love how she cut the frames from different solid color cardstock to coordinate with the striped paper she used. Find more info HERE.
The last project is from Angela who created a scrapbook page called Boys and Toys. Love the papers and gear embellishments she used. The cool waterfall album she created was made with the main (solid) tag shape die from Tag & More 8 – Lattice. Find instructions on Angela’s blog HERE.
Thank you for checking out our blog today. Make sure to visit us again on September 29th for a new challenge!
