A Way With Words Inspiration from the Design Team ModaScrap Paper Flowers Planner Essentials Scrapbooking Soft Finish Cardstock

Oma & Me

August 19, 2019

Good morning! I was honored to be asked by Els to create a layout of her granddaughter and her. I will admit, I was slightly nervous to create something for someone else but the photo she provided was so wonderful that it helped design the layout.

To create this layout you will need 2 full sheets of paper (I used ModaScrap Wood Effect paper (the top one) and ModaScap Relax in the Garden. I also used lots of bits and pieces and 1/2 sheets of the relaxing the garden papers. You will also need an edge distresser, brown ink, a few pearls for inside your flowers and of course your wonderful ECD dies.

Step 1 – Trim your top sheet to 11 3/4 x 11 3/4 then using a pair of sharp scissors trim a bit of the top sheet in little bit so the bottom sheet will show more then using your distressing tool shred the edges a bit on both papers

Step 3 – Using the smallest shape in the fitted hexagons die set, cut 23 – 25 hexagons. Ink then distress the edges.

Step 4 – Using the Planner Essentials 8 cut one of the large tag and the title and ink and die and ink and distress

Step 5 – Using the stitched circles die cut the second largest circle the ink and distress the edges

Step 6 – Using planner essentials 11 cut one of the tags and 4 of the strips then ink and distress the edges

Step 7 – Cut the top layer of the butterfly flourish and ink the edges

Step 8 – Using the backside of one of the relaxing in garden papers or a piece of off white cardstock die cut 2 leafy branches, then trim them in half so you will now have 4 pieces and ink the edges

Step 9 – Using your left over pieces of paper and your favorite flower dies die cut your flowers – I used, bunch of flowers 3, large flower set, and small flower set. I cut three of each flower and layered each one but you can also just die cut one and leave your flowers flat.

Step 10 – Assemble and enjoy!

Good morning!
I am a proud mom of two boys and therefor have created many masculine layouts.
There are so many awesome die from Elizabeth Craft including the new planner essentials dies and stamps that are perfect when creating those manly layouts!

To create this layout:

Step 1: after choosing your main sheet ink the outside edge then cover both sides of your paper with clear gesso and allow to dry or use your heat gun to dry. *covering both sides helps to cut down on warping that you may get when you use mixed media products.

Step 2: taking your planner essentials patterns 2 stamp, stamp the flowery looking stamp with brown ink at 1 inch from the left edge of the paper. then towards the top at about 5 inches from the left, then slightly higher at 6 inches, then closer to the bottom at 9 inches and again at 10 inches lower than the one at 9 inches. Allow to dry or set with your heat gun.

Step 3: taking a coordinating color of mist, use a paint brush to highlight these stamped images.

Step 4: mix another coordinating color of powder colorant (i.e. magicals) with embossing paste and using a palette knife apply beside and an top of stamped images and set with heat gun.

Step 5: die cut each of the following using coordinating papers:

Ink the edges of all the die cuts.

Santa’s Sleigh Exploding Box

September 4, 2018

Good morning!  ONE of the aspects of scrapbooking and card making that I love is sometimes when you get carried away with something and it’s a good thing!  When I began this exploding box I was going to add the sleigh as a regular die cut…..then I had the idea to make it 3D….then I wanted to add the ornaments and the poinsettias ….  It took me a bit to figure things out but I am quite happy with the final results.

Today I am sharing how I created the 3D sleigh which you can use to decorate your Christmas projects.
