Babybook with gold accents

Hello, dear friends!
Victoria is on the blog today, and I want to share with you a babybook that I created for my son's photos. Babybook is an album or notebook with printed pages for photos and notes about your child. It is an easy and pretty way to store your memories. And Memories is the theme on our blog challenge in May!
 The design of the pages is clean with black and gold accents, so I used a bunch of coordinating Wow products to decorate the book. 

First of all, I made the book-cover with cardboard (the book is 23*23 cm in size) and covered it with a piece of cotton and glittered fabric. Then I adheded few pieces of patterned paper and sew them to the cover. Also I die-cut few stars out of black and yellow cardstock. I dabbed them with embossing ink and embossed with WA01 Clear Gloss and WH00 Ebony
 For decoration I created the circle shaker element, filled it with beads, sequins and SPRK002 Celebration SPARKLES. and I die cut the name of my son with alphabet die and adhered the letters to the patterned paper. Using WOW! Embossing Pen I covered the letters with embossing ink and heat embossed them with WE01 Gold Pearl. I added the circle on top of the shaker and also covered it with SPRK002 Celebration SPARKLES on top of Glossy Accents.
 Also I mixed SPRK002 Celebration SPARKLES with clear texture paste and applied it here and there through the stencil with stars pattern.
 For little accents I stamped tiny stars from Let It Snow (by Marion Emberson) - Clear Stamp Set with the black ink.
 As I had some hand made glitter paste left, I created a dashboard out of clear acetate and applied the paste through the stencil.

 And that acetate page is th last page in the book.

Thank you for watching, be inspired!

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…
