"Hidden Among the Flowers" - Nature Theme Scrapbook Page

Hello again. Christine Saunders here with a Scrapbook page for the "Nature" theme for this month using WoW Foils. The Scrapbook page is called "Hidden among the flowers".  Yes, I am in there somewhere.


I love foils as they add that little bit of bling to your Scrapbook pages and cards. Here's how I made the Scrapbook page: Iv'e a great "Top Tip" for you on how to use your Foils with PVA Glue.
Read on..........

I ripped the edges of a piece of brown cardstock and inked the edges with a brown dye pad. I also ripped the photo and another piece of inked cardstock and layered them onto my 8" x 8" patterned page to form the background.

I then stamped the "Brocade" stamp with brown ink onto adhesive paper - once the ink was dry I added gold foil on top which then stuck to the rest of the uninked part of the image. I then dye cut this into swirls for the bottom of the page.

I placed some PVA glue onto a stamping block, spread it out and inked up my leaf stamp taken from the Wow Stamp set "Gratitude" with the glue. I repeated this 5 times and left the glue on the leaves to dry. I then "huffed"  onto the leaves and placed my gold foil on top- the foil sticks to the PVA once it has gone clear - if you "huff" slightly onto the glue the foil then sticks evenly and looks fabulous.  I then cut out the leaves and arranged them on my page.

I also followed the veins on some coloured paper leaves with PVA glue, and repeated the process with the foils.  The writing on this Scrapbook page "Hidden Among the Flowers" achieved in exactly the same way.   I used a fine nozzle attached to my PVA glue nozzle to write the words free-hand with the glue. The finishing touches were made by adding flowers punched out of brown cardstock and purple foiled sticky backed paper for constrast.

Time for you to go and experiment with your PVA glue and your foils now. Have fun.......

  1. WOW! Christine, you have excelled yourself - what a great layout with a couple of great tips for using the foils. I particularly like the idea of masking on the self-adhesive paper using the ink and foils - what paper is this?

    1. Hi Niel, I used some strong paper I had at home but it still works very well with a cold laminator pouch - the sticky inside part - and this is the side that you stamp onto. You could also use self adhesive acetate sheets which are readily available in craft stores or on the TV craft channel. Glad you liked my ideas. Thanks.

Life's A Beach

Good morning crafty friends, I hope you're all well and getting very creative this month!
As this month's challenge is summer and I live on an island it seemed only natural that my inspiration card would feature sea and sand.
To create my beach scene I started off with a piece of pale blue card and a rubbed a Clear Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Pad across the top several times. I then sprinkled WOW Peppermint Tea Powder and Under The Sea Glitter over the top, tapped off the excess and melted with a heat tool. I created the sand underneath using Gold Pearl Powder.


For the sea I ran a line of PVA glue in the middle of the sky and sand with my finger, sprinkled with Under The Sea Glitter and melted with a heat tool. For the waves I added small areas of PVA straight from the nib of the bottle when added Opaque White Powder.




The birds and sentiment I have used Opaque British Summer Powder which is one of my favourite new powders, great colour and great name!
Finally, I added beach in…

Handy Stamp Storage Idea

Hello everyone... Happy Tuesday! :D

It's Sarah here with today's blog post created for our Monochromatic theme.




I don't know about you, but I always find I need to use stamps from a mixture of stamp sets and I thought it would be easier if I didn't have to slide each stamp set in and out of the packets all of the time.

I have a bunch of empty CD cases that I had almost thrown out but thankfully I hadn't as they turned out to be the perfect solution! The part that holds the CD easily popped out so I could then position my different stamp sets within them.

I found an old wooden CD box but it had no lid and as all clear acrylic stamps are best stored out of the light, I decided I would make a box lid for it... not just a plain lid though... a Wow Embossed box lid!


Here are brief instructions on how to make it:



STEP ONE

Using pearl silver card, I created a square to the size that I needed (145mm) and added 30mm wide rectangles around the square adding in some t…
