Scrapbooking with Karla – Scraplifting Jenn Gagne!

Happy Thursday!! Karla back today with a scrappy springtime layout. This week we are scraplifting our awesome Guest Designer Jenn Gagne. Be sure to check out Tuesday’s blog post where she shared an amazing traveler’s notebook project! I’ve decided to use her beautiful Easter layout as inspiration for my scrapbook project today. I just loved the pretty colours and those gorgeous doilies, and I knew this would be a perfect layout to add the On Pointe, Aquarius, Morning Glow and Painted Gardens Sequin Mixes! Here’s a look at Jenn’s layout:

Layout by Jenn Gagne

 

I picked up a lovely PhotoPlay collection over the weekend and I couldn’t wait to use the springtime papers included. I’m really impressed with the PhotoPlay papers I’m seeing! I started off by adding Distress Oxide Inks to my splat mat and spritzing with Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold Mist. I put the white doilies directly onto the inky mist and pulled them through it to add some shimmery watercolour. I used 3 different colours for the doilies and then dried them with a heat gun.

I used the same inky mists to add some watercolours and splats directly to my white cardstock background before laying down the doilies and then adding my photo matted with the pretty PhotoPlay papers.

I stamped some butterflies, words and scrolls on the background with Distress Oxide Inks and then added some flowers, gems and more butterflies popped up with foam dots to give the layout some more dimension. Then, of course, the fun part – adding the sequins!! This just makes the layout come alive!

Next up… my new process video and layout are up and running finally!!  We had our laptop die on Saturday… awesome right!  So, I’m a bit behind this week, especially after a leak in the basement was super close to my scrap area!!  EEKKK!   But, after a late night session I’m ready to rock and roll again!  Here’s my watercolor background layout, featuring Shimmerz Creameez watercolors!! I’m so lovin’ these watercolors!!  After creating my watercolor background (YouTube video here on how I created it), I began adding some very simple layers of Heidi Swapp Hello Today papers, cork butterflies, pink baker’s twine, Pink Fresh Studio puffy stickers, felt hearts and Dear Lizzy wood veneer ‘Best Ever’ for my title!  

To create my loops of baker’s twine, I simply laid out my twine with the loops how I wanted them.  Next, I added a few dabs of Aleene’s Tacky Glue to the tops of the loops and let it dry for a few minutes.  Then, I added the baker’s twine loopy-banner onto my layout using the same tacky glue!  Pretty easy and great way to use your twine and strings!

I really love how the water color background looks!!  There’s just a little bit of shimmer in the watercolor, which is hard to see in the photos.  It’s so pretty!!

Thanks so much for spending your time with me today!  Please hop over and check out my YOUTUBE VIDEO HERE!
