Geared Up Scrapbook Layout

Tuesday, July 25, 2017
It has been awhile since the last time I made a layout so today I'm sharing this one that I created for Crafter's Companion's HSN show back on July 11th! I love this scrapbook layout so much because it has always been hard for me to make a masculine layout for my boy but the gears dies by Crafter's Companion has nailed it perfectly for this theme. 

I die-cut a whole bunch of foam shapes using these gear dies (I used adhesive foam sheets by the way and adhered a layer of Ken Oliver's Stick-It adhesives on the other side of the foam so that both sides will be sticky) and foiled it with Crafter's Companion foil. 

Love the sparkly gold foil! And the hot air balloon die is so darn cute!

Have An Enchanting Time Birthday Card

Sunday, July 9, 2017
Have you gotten the latest summer inspiration craft magazine by Crafter's Companion? You should because it comes with super cute fun stamps that you can use to create many different projects! I 'm particularly into this wizard stamp, it's so cute and the matching sentiment stamps are great too. I colored this image using Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and the background was created using Tim Holtz distress ink pad.

I also sprinkled some white embossing powder on the background to create this "magical" snowy look. Make sure to get them on HSN this july 11th!! The Magazine itself has tons of inspirations for you to create with this set of stamps and as well as other latest products from Crafter's Companion.

Geared Up Card

Thursday, July 6, 2017
These adorable gears are from Sheena's Time Traveler's Stamps and Dies collection, don't they look marvelous?! I used it to make this masculine card and super liking the result. Showed it to my 6 years old boy and he said he liked the gears very much because they look like real gears (his critique are the only one I need. lol) 

To create such a rusty look I first adhered a layer of gold foil over a cardstock, cut out the gear shapes using the coordinating dies and stamp the image of the gears onto the foiled surface.  Then these gears were adhered to the pre-cut foam gears (adhesive foam sheet) to give the card a dimensional feel. And it just so happened that I had this clock printed patterned cardstock, just what I needed for these gears!

The sentiment is from Sheena's Time Traveler's (Time Machine) stamp set, I heat-embossed it with white embossing powder so it doesn't blend into the background like it would with black ink. 

Check out the sparkles! The rustiness looks absolutely gorgeous!! All you see here will be available to you on July 11th, just tune in to HSN to catch them before they are gone!!

Mixed Media Keepsake Box

Monday, July 3, 2017
I was at my local A.C Moore couple days ago and saw this cute wooden keepsake box and had to bring it home with me. I didn't have any idea about what I wanted to do with it until I saw this new text stamp set from Crafter's Companion and immediately this popped into my mind! 

I first stamped it with embossing ink and heat set it with white embossing powder, I was worried how it would end up but luckily they turned out the way I hoped. I then colored the surface with Sparkle Markers (make sure not to use acrylic paint over the embossed letters or you won't get this result!) and when it dried completely I applied a layer of mod podge just to seal the surface.

For the center piece, I created the watercolor background with Sparkle Markers as well and they look pretty good. Using the same technique, I stamped and heat embossed the word "FAMILY LOVE" with white embossing powder then only I create the watercolor background on a watercolor cardstock. 

I actually made two of similar design, one for the front and the other on the back.

The stamps sets are coming to HSN this July 11th in less than two weeks!! Don't forget to check the complete list of items coming to you!
