My Creative Scrapbook - Heart Tutorial

Hi everyone! Shona here today and I am going to share with you how to create these cute and simple hearts for embellishing your cards, tags or layouts.  


I used papers from the LE kit and cut out 4 hearts. Make two smaller for the top hearts. I also used some distress ink around the edges of each heart.

 

The next step is to mist the hearts with water and curl the edges. I used a paintbrush end to curl them.


Heat set. Heat setting makes these curls permanent and the hearts will not lose their shape.


 
Layer a small heart on top of a larger one now. I added a piece of gauze between the layers for some added dimension.


Last step is I just wrapped some thread around the hearts, adhering it with tape on the back. Ready to add to your project.

 

These two tags are created with the LE kit. For the base of the tags I used the packaging from the gorgeous 49 and Market flowers in the kit.
 

A few close ups of the tag set.
 
 

Here are some of the hearts I used on a kit layout. For these two I added a big of masking on them.
 
That is it for me today, make sure to check out all the gorgeous kits available this month! Take care and happy scrapping!

Altered Jars - Shimmerz Paints.

Hello Shimmerz fans!! I made some special gifts for a new mom. A Canvas and some altered jars for the babies room..something a little bit different. Today I am going to share the jars that I created. She can keep little trinkets in them.

I created the background texture with some crackle paste and Shimmerz Salt of the Earth Paste-eez. Perfect for added texture on your projects!

Next I had to add some Shimmerz color to dress these jars up! Bed of Roses Spritz and Hot Fudge Vibez added the perfect blend of color.

To finish my jars off I added some Creative Embellishments chippys and flowers. The chipboard is finished with a coat of Spotlight White Inklingz. Then I added some splats of Penny 4 Your Thoughts Inklingz.

Check out our Facebook page for lots of inspiration and share with us what you created with Shimmerz! Look for us on Instagram too! Don’t forget to mention my name at the store checkout for your free sample of Shimmerz!!

I will share the canvas on my next post this month! Take care and happy scrapping!

Inspire - Creative Embellishments and 49 and Market

Hi everyone! My layout today is my son and daughter in law…they are both such an inspiration and this layout is perfect for them. Be Inspired, Live Inspired and Inspire. I used 49 and Market Flower Fairies collection and flowers.
 
The chippys are all finished with a coat of gesso and some Shimmerz products to add a soft color and shimmer. Here is a fun Scribble Heart and the title is from the Inspire Word Set. I also used Shimmerz to add shading behind the photo and clusters.
 

I tucked in some chippy hearts and feathers to bring focus to the cluster. They are both perfect additions to any project!

DayDreamer - NEW Scent of Nature - 49 and Market

BLOG HOP NOTE...click here is you are looking for the blog hop. 
 
Hello 49 and Market fans!! I am back today with a layout created with the gorgeous NEW Scents of Nature Collection. My base layer is the “B” side of the Scents of  Natures Collection sheet. I used the Blue Petals sheet to layer on top.


 This new collection is gorgeous and has lots of fun pieces on the sheets that can be fussy cut and tucked in for added layers and dimension on your creations! Here you can see some of the fussy cut pieces from the Blue Petals sheet.


 After my layers were done I added some stamping with the NEW Artsy Stamp Set, Gabi’s Butterflies are Free stamp set and I used a Gabi’s Line Stitch stamp around the outside edges. Stamping is perfect for added layers and dimension! Once stamping is done it was time to add a bit of masking and color with Shimmerz!
 

The gorgeous flower clusters are a combo of Vintage Shades Orchid Bouquet, Orchid Blossoms and Alabaster Garden Blooms.


 For the top little cluster I tucked in a piece of the Blue Petals sheet in the tear.
