Vintage Flower Scrappin’

IMG_0196

I promised I’d post this page that I did case’ing Shelli’s technique for paper flowers. 

Step 1: punch flower using Extra large fancy flower punch and centers using 1” circle punch.

 

If you’re stamping on it, do that now.

Step 2: Break down fibers by pulling the flower between your fingers and a bone folder, do all edges this way, then flip over and do opposite.

Step 3: Crumple flower into small ball, unball

Step 4: Use your thumb to roll the edges, allowing the fibers to separate and scrunch a little. 

Step 5: When the flower is scrunched and shaped as you want it, spritz lightly with water. This will cause the paper fibers that you’ve separated to harden and stay in that position when they dry.

Step 6: sponge edges (optional)

Step 7: Layer and embellish as desired.

Digital Studio

Sample book page 1-001

I love MY Digital Studio and I got this new download of Textured CS (with the Crushed Curry it doesn’t show up well).  I also got the new ‘sweet pea’ designer series paper and had to try this new thing I learned.  The ovals at the top and the bottom are made with the wide oval punch (from the digital studio of course), it gets stretched to size, then filled with DSP, then I matted  (the soft suede around the edge of the ovals).

I wanted to make my letters stand out, so I added a layer of white Cardstock, changed the opacity to about 45 % then added my choc. chip letters on top so that they show up!

I decided to try a different color background—which do you like the yellow or the razzleberry?

Cindy's Album-001

 

I am planning an Open House in February to introduce everyone to this fabulous product!  I know you’ll agree when you see how easy it is to make an adorable page. 

New Clubs Forming

February hostess club—sneak peek.  Be sure to contact me if you want to be a part of this fun group and make great new projects each month.

New style: easel card.  I received the front of this card as a swap at convention.  I thought the color combo was just fabulous.  I new I wanted to teach the new easel style so I turned it into just that.
