DAYS LIKE THIS l Layout | by Sonja Voigt

embossing

Hello and you all have a wonderful weekend. Today I, Sonja, can show you my latest layout with the LAZY DAYS series. We use it to design a layout and a Project Life page, also together.

To do this, we cut strips of the same size from three different papers. These should be as wide as our pictures.

After you have glued on the strips and the pictures, you can give the layout some structure with a sewing machine or with a needle and thread. I love to use my golden yarn for this, somehow it goes with almost all colors and patterns.

I designed the title of the double page with two punches from my collection. I stuck the title itself on a white cardstock and stuck it on the palm leaves with adhesive spacer pads.

And now to our Project Life page. For this we first need 6 cards of 3x4 inches.

With a stamp plate from the series I designed three journaling cards. I stamped the motifs on with an embossing pad and a stamp. With fine golden embossing powder, the contours become rather delicate and very clear. I should reach for the embossing powder much more often, because the accents you get look really great and are individual.

Finally, I selected a few stickers from the series and stuck them on a white cardstock, cut them out and stuck them on punched-out circles.

I hope you enjoyed my inspiration. Enjoy the day and the weekend.






Jenn | Mini album Memorydex



Good morning!!

Have you ever made a memorydex album?



I never, so I researched Pinterest and found a simple tutorial. Just take a card and cut it to 24x20cm.






Cut 4 cm of edge, line and insert the two straws into a piece of paper folded in 4.




For the pages, I used various Memorydex dies that are readily available.

The Bom Dia collection with beautiful embellishments and new die cuts!






SUMMER PROJECTS | NenaScrap

Bom Dia
 Hi Studio Forty friends,

It's NenaScrap with you today ! 
I wanted to share with you some summer projects made with the new summer goodies.

My 1st project is a layout made with Day Dream 15x15cm paper pad.



On a white carstock as a background, I arranged 8 Origami hearts made with the printed papers of the Day Dream paper pad. As the papers are squares, it is very easy to fold it to make the hearts (I found the tutorial on You Tube).


I divided the hearts in roughly symmetrical way, leaving a space  to add my photo on the left.


I added several layers of cardboard under my photo to give it volume and assembled some So Romantic die-cuts to create my embellishments and title.
I fussy cut some flowers from the additional paper pattern on the back of the cover in the paper pad.


I made a few splashes with black ink and stamped little leaves, from Thank You stamp set, under my embellishments.
To finish, I added some Day Dream dots .


Here is the finished layout, I hope you liked this way of using our papers differently.


For my 2nd project, I wanted to use vellum paper. I decided to include some in my traveler notebook documenting our trip to Sevilla in 2019. 


I chose the So Romantic vellum . I create a flap on the right page and used a piece of it under my photo on the left to create a visual reminder.






Bom Dia and Lazy Days mix wonderfully !!!

I hope you enjoyed these projects, I wish you a nice and crafty summer ❤

See you soon.

Love.

 Hello everyone! 

How are you all? 

I hope you all find yourself good! And hopefully with crafty mind and environment during the summer. 



Today I would like to share my first work making accessories with Studioforty products. 

Here are two brooches! 

I have made them with my favorite Studioforty's

Light bulb stamps!!! 

I stamped it to a plain linen cloth with quilt cotton. 

Then embroidered along with the lines. 

The stamp is not large so it only took me a few hours with lots of pauses( like doing house hold work) . 

After finishing embroidery, I have cut too chipboard sharped as bulbs, 114% and 125% larger than the original stamp. 

The ivory linen and quilt cotton wrapped 114% sized bulb chipboard, with glue. 

And any patterned cloth with quilt cotton to wrap125% sized chipboard. 


And glue them together. 

On the back, I used felt and stitched the pins. 

I am in the middle of beginner to intermediate, closer to beginner with embroidery. Means everyone can make a stamp brooches! 

Now you can wear your favorite stamps. On your T shirt, jackets, hats and bags.

Stay happy!

I'm here again, to show you a couple of notebook pages.
I have used the "Lazy Days" collection for both projects. This time in both I have used very few ornaments (although I don't use many by now) but as you will see with some stamps and scissors you can make your own ornaments.



Here I start with several stickers and a couple of chipboards with one of the stamps of the collection I have stamped a clip that I cut and then glue it with a sticky dot.

I have cut the card from one of the papers.


As a background for the photo and the card I have glued two paper triangles.




In this one, most of the ornaments are stamped stamp and then cut out.
Some stars of different shapes.



I have added some colored enamel dots to the composition.
Under the photo a paper cutout.



Some designs with very few things, which can be used to document, if you are away on vacation, and you do not want to carry many things.


Happy July!
