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!

Thanks so much for stopping by

Don’t Be Afraid to Go Bold with Lilies

January 20, 2018

Hi, Diana here! Have you ever seen one of those time lapsed videos of flowers blooming?  It’s quite amazing. This quote from the Where My Flowers Bloom Collection stamp set reminded me of those videos. Flowers open ever-so-slowly, but then they’re in full bloom! And it’s quite beautiful to behold.  I combined this quote with one of my favorite flowers – Stargazer Lilies. They are so vibrant and bold – and a lot taller than you would think!  Read on to find out how I made this card.

Shimmer Sheetz-Lined Elegant Roses Gatefold – Merci!

Shimmer Sheetz-Lined Elegant Roses Gatefold – Merci!

By Judi Kauffman

This project was inspired by a jacket I saw on one of the singers at the Grammy awards show in February. It was kimono-like with elaborate embroidery and exaggerated sleeves that moved and sparkled.

I lined both sides of my Elegant Roses Gatefold card with lightly sanded Turquoise Gemstone Shimmer Sheetz to give the look of the sleeves and used soft sheer organza ribbon to echo the flowing quality of the rest of the garment.

The removable card reveals its secrets when the ‘jacket’ is untied: Leafy branches on the outside, another branch and a sentiment on the inside. I chose ‘Merci’ this time, but will switch to other sentiments and color combinations for sending birthday and anniversary wishes!

Sending Kisses by Judi Kauffman

Sending Kisses
By Judi Kauffman

Who says that Valentines have to be red, pink, and white and filled with hearts and cupids? I know that’s the norm, but I thought it would be fun to go in a different direction. Besides, who says that ‘Sending Kisses’ is only for Valentine’s Day in the first place? I think this project would serve well all year. You can send kisses for birthdays and anniversaries, with get well wishes, and when there’s no occasion whatsoever.
