Hello lovely crafters!
Unfortunately I don’t have anything new to show you today! However, I am currently working on a very cool Thank You card for my next Silhouette UK project, and I thought I would do a throwback to some 3D cards that I made in the past.
Here are a few of my favourite ones:
Cutting the sentiment on this card (“feliz cumpleaños mama”) was actually quite hard! The letters were so small and delicate! But on my second attempt I managed to get it right. This card travelled all the way to Spain as a present, and I believe the recipient loved it!
When I made this one I was already a bit more experienced, so the lettering wasn’t so much of a problem. The “issue” with this one is that I used chipboard embellishments which were quite heavy! The recipient of the card didn’t complain about any embellishments falling off, so I am hoping that it arrived in one piece!
This one was probably the last pop up box card that I made, and it is from February last year. It was for my husband’s grandma and she loved it. It was one of my favourite to make too, as the colours are just so gorgeous!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this Throw Back Thursday and hopefully I’ll have some more scrapbook layouts for you soon!
This is a very small Throw Back Thursday, since the layout is only two weeks old! But I completely forgot to blog about it when I finished it, so here it finally is!
I started this page ages ago, in May… I applied gesso to the patterned paper background and then smeared some gold paint. Unfortunately, I hated the final result. Some people said to not give up and keep adding layers of mixed media. And that’s what I did. I wanted to make a layout about my dad, and because of the content of the letter, I knew I wanted the layout to be messy… hence I rescued the page.
So I added lots of ink sprays, modelling paste, more paint, splatters, stamping… And now I actually love how it’s turned out!
Here it is:
I know this is not my usual style, but I love getting messy with mixed media from time to time!
Here’s another close up:
I am still in Spain, but I thought I would post a video that I uploaded to youtube the other day with all the layouts that I created in the month of June. I actually love making these videos every month or so, as it gives me another opportunity to look at them before I put them away in the albums!
Here is the video. I’ll be back soon, and already have some layouts planned for when I’m home!
PS: Youtube allows me to schedule videos and create custom thumbnails… Cool!! I was looking forward to that and it has finally happened!
Read you soon!
I don’t have anything new to show you today, and since it is Thursday, I thought I would do a #tbt and showcase a layout from my 8×8 days. I have only been scrapbooking on12x12 size since the beginning of this year but it already feels like a million years ago!
This layout is super fun and I have chosen it because (I had never posted it here before…) it shows quite well how you can make the most of 8×8 pages. It’s got two photos, tons of alphas for the long title and a journalling card! You can’t ask for more 🙂
Here it is and I hope you like it!
Read you very soon,
Hello lovely likers!
I am about to put all my completed projects into page protectors and albums, so I thought it would be a good idea to film one of those flip throughs or lookbacks or whatever they are called. Unfortunately when I started doing the video voiceover, my throat was really sore and I kept coughing. I hope people are not too putt off by this!
Anyway, here it is and I hope you enjoy it!
Read you soon,
