iPhone generation in a retro mood

Hello, dear Wow friends! Irit is here again with my new scrapbooking page.
Sometimes a picture  says everything and all the page is just a scene around a  photo. This is exactly what happened with this lo: my daughters photo in the old London phone box was just a reminder about their addiction to the iPhones and all other techno gadgets.

So I used a retro papers from Cosmo Cricket, all heat embossed around with a Wow Ebony, Suzy West Cable Car Red and Suzy West  Cotton Candy embossing powders.

Then all 3 phones  from Call me stamp set were stamped, cut and heat embossed as my embellishments, again with Ebony and Cable Car Red.

I inked the  chipboard frame and the  chipboard title (A2Z Scraplets) with Frosty White Cleasnap ink and then heat en\mbossed 3 layers with Bright White Wow powder.

And I made this big title as it says it all:
iPhone Generation Retro Mood.
I decided to add some handmade embellishments from Handmade Halo shop- the glass rose pebble and the vintage cameo were just perfect to substitute the letter "O". Some more ribbons on my handmade tags and Halo handmade wooden button were the last touches on this page.
I hope you like it. I think it's  and interesting page: connecting the old and the new, all in one lo.
See you on our team post in just a few days


  1. Gosh, that photo is perfect for that stamp set! What a great project this is! Love it!

  2. Great layout! Love the layered tags.

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:


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…

Hugs & Kisses

With this one I used the Altenew Halftone Hearts Stamp Set with matching word dies.

I stamped on a panel slightly smaller than my card base and embossed with WOW! Pink Robin, Goose and Bird of Paradise. I then die cut two hearts 'layered' in the panel, stuck the middle back in and raised the outer to create an eclipse card. I stamped the 'hugs & kisses' on a piece of card stock and did the Sparkle technique (instructions i…

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…
