4 of us–Layout

Last night I wanted to make 2 layouts. One for the TBSS weekly challenge and another was a sketch challenge from scrappers warehouse. I thought I will combine both and make a single layout because the sketch was a 4 photo sketch and the TBSS’s challenge also had to include 4 photos.

Hurray!! off I go with making the layout. Printed off some sepia photos from my desktop. I usually make my layouts within 2 hours and this one took me less than 2 hours. Everything just fell in place.It was like a miracle. I like the metal frame. It just pops and add interest in the layout. Anyway, I thought I will put it up with some closeup photos.




I also got a chance to read few articles on scrap booking styles and write up an article on scrap booking styles. In debscreations.com.au, we had a recent discussion on scrapbooking styles and there was a confusion on definition of terminology. I felt good as always love to research and write articles. Will put it up here later today.
Work was relaxed and I am feeling so sleepy already. Pizza for Dinner then..
Will catch you guys tomorrow. Off to buy Pizza
Bye for now

Stained Glass like embellishment–Step to Step Instruction

All you will need:

1. 3D outline stickers. You will get in the card making section in your LSS

2. Acetate paper or transparency sheet

3. Colour gel pens- sparkle ones even better for butterfly

4. Craft knife.


Making it:

1. Remove one of the outline sticker carefully ( I have used flower to show you, there is butterfly which is more effective) and paste it on the transparency sheet.


2. Cut the outline. Use your colour gel pens and colour inside. Let it dry for few minutes. Here you can use any medium-kindy glitz, glimmer mist…. If you are using chalk, then you must sand the transparency sheet prior to sticking the butterfly sticker. That way the chalk powder will stick to the sheet.

4. When the colours are dry, the embellishment can be used on your layout or on your card.if you have made a butterfly then fold the butterfly in the middle and stick the butterfly using glue dots.

Here are photos of the butterfly I made.

Hope you have enjoyed it. Make as many as you like and have fun. Thanks for going through. This is my first so give me feedback

Today’s tip

If you have hundreds of photos from a holiday or from a gathering or a party and you want to make layouts using them.
Pick and choose a few photos to make a couple of layout or a double layout. Make a slideshow DVD or CD of the rest of the photos and pop the disc into a pouch on one of the layout or behind one of the layout. That way you have the layout of the event and more picture on the disc together. Sounds good?
