Mandi, here. Popping in to share with you a cute baby layout that features the May Arts Burlap StringSea U in the Mornin’ Shimmerz DazzlerzTutti Frutti Dazzlerz Texture PasteCloudy Days FeltiesChunky Cork Hearts and Gold Sequin Confetti.

I love to take bits and pieces to create a cluster which helps draws the eye in to the title area. As you can see here I have felties, cork, string and papers which adds a lot of texture without a lot of bulk, which takes up less room in albums.

To give the embossed cardstock this shine I applied a thin layer of the Dazzlerz. I came across a cool technique the Dazzlerz can be used in. It can exactly be used as an adhesive for foil sheets. Apply a thin layer of the paste to the cardstock, let it get to the tacky stage, maybe five minutes, rub the foil in the area you want and remove. You should be left with something that looks like this.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this fun technique in how to incorporated the Dazzlerz into your crafty work.

Easy ornaments with Simple Stories SN@P!!

When I received the December Express Kit from Memory Works.. I thought I need to do something different with the contents!  Simple Stories SN@P papers, cardstock and stickers, a chipboard mini album, some buttons and ribbon.  HMMM, the gears were turning and soon began to smoke!  I started to get out an array of supplies and tools… my Tim Holtz Rosette Dies, Stickles, WASHI tapes, sugar glitter and Mod Podge….I GOT IT!!  I’ll make Christmas ornaments!  Voila!!

While the Mod Podge & sugar glitter was drying on these, I was going through a ton of pictures I just printed for Grandparents.  I came across pictures I printed from my iPhone.  Our girls know how to use our iPhones too well for being 4 and 5 years old, LOL!  It’s crazy, but real life around here.  They managed to use a pink photo filter on this picture of Sari and Beka, which is so funny!  I love the ‘look’ on their faces… priceless to say the least!

I love these papers, and the SN@P line is one of my new favorites.  You can easily layer their cute washi tape stickers over the elements already printed onto the papers, just like I did on this layout.  I added a few different WASHI TAPES from My Etsy Shop including a teal diagnal stripe, solid pink and solid blue.  You can’t go wrong when you add WASHI to any project!!

Christmas in August..

After the last couple of days of getting ready to school to start, carpet cleaners and rearranging furniture, I had to get my scrap on!  So, I found this picture of Sari and I from Christmas 2010. 

I used papers that I’ve had in my stash for awhile (trying to stick to my resolution~Scrap My Stash!)  Everything is actually available at Hobby Lobby:
Bazzill Cardstock, October Afternoon papers, Ranger GlossyAccents, craft buttons, brown rosette trim (fabric dept. by the yard), Red Ho Ho Ho Ribbon, Making Memories red glitter letters, my Cricut (Joys of the Season Cartidge), Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Paper Studio Sticky Doo’s pop dots and adhesive. 

 The wreath and garland are from the Joys of the Season Cartridge. 
A little out of season, but I like scrapping out of order.
