Layout,Notebook i kartka | Guest Designer - Katarina

Hi Friends, this is my blog post and I’d like to say I am really happy to have the opportunity todesign for Studio Forty and join such a great team of talented ladies. I am looking forward to playing with the awesome Studio Forty products in the coming months. 

While waiting for the new products to arrive I have used the Daydream collection and because I was in a crafty mood I have prepared a mix of formats. So let’s start from the biggest to the smallest.

The first layout is about my son’s love for dill. He tried it first time when visiting his grandma couple of weeks ago and he spent half an hour in the garden picking it and eating. Grandma finally decided to give us one of the plants and we were leaving with our own dill in a flower pot. This collection was just perfect for the garden atmosphere. I decided to create a frame using the green floral paper  I left a couple of fussy cut plants on the frame tooverlap the background white cardstock. 

I knew I wanted to use the „You got this“ stamp set from the collection as it was packed with cute little flowers. I took all of the single flowers from the set and put them on an acryllic block to create a stamped pattern. 

Then I repeatedly stamped and heat embossed the flowers with clear embossing powder. Once this was done, I used watercolors and painted a few stripes to finish the look and allow the stamps to stand out of the background. I chose the colors that were present on the photo. 

I cut a rectangle out of this custom made paper and another rectangle of the Pinewood patterned paper to back my photo. I used a piece of vellum and adhesive foam to add some texture and dimension. 

Then I added some black elements for a little bit of contrast - journaling, title and a bunch of black splatters and that was it. 

For my second project I went for my favorite format - a traveler’s notebook spread. I used the Daydream Notebook Edition chose the most beautiful yellow grid paper. 

My 2,5 year old son recently managed to ride a bike and this important moment needed to be documented. I found the biggest stamp from the „You got this“stamp set totally perfect for my title. I thought I would stamp it on a punched white cardstock circle and back it with one of the patterned papers. However, as you can see, I couldn’t stop adding all those beautiful patterned papers and created a pretty bulky and textured title in the end. Under the circles I used a floral wreath that I fussy cut from one of the cards from the Cards patterned paper

Since we live in the middle of vineyards and there is a lot of green on my photo, the green floral papers again went perfectly with my photo. I used two different patterned papers to back my photo, distressed them a little for some added texture. 

On the left side I also wanted to add some pops of green so I used two stripes of leafy paper – one from the Daydream Paper Strips and the other one cut from a paper with the same pattern. 

I added two older clear stickers from the Good Vibes collection, stamped some cute little flowers and my TN spread was done. 

As a bonus I created one more project. I am not a cardmaker at all but had a lot of scraps from my previous projects as well as my home made heat embossed patterned paper, so I decided to continue crafting. I cut a circle window in the card base and the Diamonds patterned paper I stamped a sentiment on a pink circle using one of the „You Got This“ stamps and backed it with a bigger circle cut of my own stamped paper. 

I fussy cut some flowers and leaves from the floral TN paper, adhered them to the blue frame and added a bunch of sequins as a finish. 

Hope my articlewas inspiring and I am looking forward to creating some cool projects from the newest collections soon. Happy crafting, dear scrappy friends!
