Zinia’s Custom Shine On Cards

Hello everyone, it’s Zinia here and today I’d like to show you how I customized the already amazing cards from the Shine On card kit to  take them to the next level.

I actually only used a couple of products to embellish these cards and the item I used the most was certainly the Shine On sticker book. I really love that this sticker book has a ton of amazing clear stickers that can layer beautifully on top of existing patterns.

The three cards I picked out of the box were the heart, the camera and the “yay” designs.

For the “yay” card I kept things very minimal as I didn’t want to make it too overwhelming that it’s hard to read. I just picked a few clear stickers of delicate leaves in black color and adhered them on both “Y”s of the design. I added a couple of chipboard stickers across the exclamation mark and then just finished the card with a few white enamel drops.

For the heart design, I basically filled the rest of the empty space following the same pattern. I picked small floral stickers in gold and white finish and covered all the solid parts of the card. To cover the areas that were too small to fit a sticker but still too large to leave empty, I added a couple of gold metallic enamel drops.

Last but not least, I added some embellishments on the camera card. I used a bunch of puffy hearts to surround the camera lens and again I used the beautiful floral clear stickers around it.

I really loved this card kit from the moment I got it but I never imagined how fun it would be to embellish these cards even further. I really hope you got inspired from these ideas to create something beautiful, until next time, happy crafting.

Zinia’s Washi Vortex Layout

Hello everyone, it’s Zinia here and today I’d like to share with you a really fun way to use your washi tape stash to create a scrapbook layout.

IMG_0094.JPG

It goes without saying that I’m crazy about washi tapes. And just like most crafters out there, I have so many rolls in my stash that are good for a lifetime. So I’m always really excited to find new fun ways to use my favorite washi.

IMG_0096.JPG

This idea was actually inspired by Van Gogh’s Starry Night. Looking at the vortex shapes of the brush strokes on the sky of this painting I thought I can recreate a similar effect with small pieces of washi tape on my background. So I grabbed my Shine On washi tapes and a few more products and I got to work.

Before I started sticking the washi tape pieces, I covered the bottom part of my page with a piece of light blue pattern paper. You can definitely cover the whole background with this technique but I wanted to reserve some space for my journaling.

To make the process faster, I cut pieces of wash tape in bulk and stuck them at the edge of my working desk. I had around 6-7 pieces of each color at a time and once I adhered those on my page, I just cut another batch to work with.

To embellish the page, I chose some floral images from the ephemera pack and sticker book that had some sort of curvy design. I did that to carry that movement of the washi vortex on the rest of the design as well.

I really hope you enjoyed this page, until next time, happy crafting. -Zinia

Violeta's Expo Layout

Hello! 

I am Violeta Scrap and I am very happy to show you a layout that I have made using some Amy Tangerine’s products of her very last collection. 

Expo

For this Project I have used some pictures of some years ago that I wanted to use for a layout, but I could not find the perfect combination of papers and embellishments for them. 

Expo Layout

But some embellishments of the latest collection of Amy Tangerine inspired me to create a layout with earth tones. 

As base of the layout I have used a paper with orange tones that combines perfectly well with the pictures. Over it I have glued a white basic cardstock where I have cut some words with my silhouette Cameo.  After that I have glued the pictures and I have decorated the layout with different scrapbooking elements. 

Expo Layout

For the title of the project I have used some thickers in black from the latest Amy Tangerine’s collection. Moreover, I have added some chipboard in white and foil. They are perfect for this project. I think that the color combination and the embellishments of this layout are perfect to work with any of the others Amy collections.

I hope you liked this project. I have enjoyed so much doing this layout. If you have any question regarding the project, you can leave it in the comments section below. Thanks!

Zinia's Colorful Pattern Strips

Hello everyone, it’s Zinia here and today I’d like to share with you a layout I created using thin colorful strips of pattern paper from Amy's Shine On Collection.

Colorful Pattern Strips

I absolutely adore working with stripes, especially when we are talking about pattern paper. I love mixing colors and patterns in fun ways while working with simple and fun shapes.

Since I wanted my strips to be very thin, I chose to work from my Shine On 6x6 Paper Pad, however you can totally use your 12x12 paper scraps for this design. You can even use carstock scraps in rainbow order for a super bright and colorful result!

Colorful Pattern Strips

So anyway, back to the 6x6 pad, I picked out patterns in all the different colors that are featured in the collection and cut them down to the thinnest strips that my paper cutter could handle.

Before I started adhering my strips, I wanted to add a little something to break the white background, so I pulled out a couple Color Shine sprays and added some messy splatters all over the page. I made sure to let my splatters dry for a few minutes so I won’t risk smudging the color and then I went back to my paper strips.

Colorful Pattern Strips

I didn’t really overthink the order of the colors and patterns, I just made sure to spread them as evenly as possible. To do that, I just stuck my strips one pattern at a time so all the pieces of the same design are far from each other.

Colorful Pattern Strips

When all the strips were in place, I created a little cluster using some of my favorite ephemera pieces from the collection. I used one of the journaling pieces as a border around my photo  and also added a few stickers as well as one of the adorable leather bows.

Violeta's Somos Scrap Layout

Hello!

As always it is great to be here in Amy Tangerine’s blog to show you a new scrapbooking project.

Scrap

I have made a very funny layout, using different elements from different collections of Amy Tangerine. It is so cool that I can combine papers and embellishments of the different collections. 

For this layout I have used a white cardstock paper and I have made a composition where I combine mint, pink and yellow. 

This time I have used a picture with the shape of a 3 inches circle that I have cut. I have put it in the center of the layout. Around the picture I have added different leaves that I have cut from different papers of Amy Tangerine. 

Scrap

For the title of this project I have combined different letters of materials and sizes. And as a decorative element I have used some transparent stickers in yellow and pink tones. I love this color combination!

Scrap

I love making layouts with different and daring compositions like this one I’ve made. I encourage you to make a layout or a mini album using one or more circular pictures. You can create loads of combinations using geometric shapes in your scrapbooking projects.

I hope you’ve liked this layout and if you have any question leave in the comments section below! See you soon!
