Violeta's Stay Sweet Layout

Hello! This is Violeta Scrap and I want to show you how to create a new layout using Amy Tangerine’s collection Stay Sweet. It is a very fun and colorful collection so I hope you like this layout.

Violeta's Stay Sweet Layout

For this layout, I have used a picture with a white frame and a size of 6x4 inches in which I am with my colleagues. To make this layout I have used as a base a 12x12 inches white cardstock. Then I have placed the picture in the middle of the layout and at the bottom and the top of the picture, I have put some letters that are included in the sticker book of the collection Stay Sweet by Amy Tangerine. 

In addition, I have put some transparent stickers in different parts of the layout. Below the picture, I have put the title of the layout and more decorative elements. For the title of the layout, I have used different stickers and the alphabet from the Stay Sweet collection by Amy Tangerine. Moreover, I have put as decorative elements some blue heart enamel dots and above on the right I have placed some colorful letters and a blue sticker.

To add more color to the layout I have used the watercolor set from the Stay Sweet collection by Amy Tangerine. I have added some drops of blue watercolor in the entire project. Adding drops of watercolor to scrapbook projects give color to the projects.

I hope you liked the project that it is very easy to make, but if you have, any questions leave them in the comments section. I hope to be back soon with new projects to show.

Lots of love,

Zinia's Watercolor Cards

Hello everyone! It’s Zinia here and today I’d like to share with you a few fun and easy card ideas using the new Amy Tangerine Stay Sweet Watercolor set.

One of the many things I love about this set is the colors. They are so beautiful and vibrant straight from the pans that you don’t need to worry about mixing beautiful shades.

Zinia's Watercolor Cards

So for my first card, I used the colors straight from the pans and I created a rainbow stripped pattern design. Every time I run through my brush with a new color, I let it touch the previous strip so that the colors bleed into each other a bit.

For my second card, I wanted to focus more on that bleeding effect so this time, I created circles of color and let them touch with each other so the colors mix on their own. This technique really creates breathtaking results.

To create the next card I used a craft mat. I picked some colors and scribbled them down on the mat, then I added a spritz of water and dipped my card into the color. This is what people call the smooshing technique cause you basically smoosh your card panel into the colors to get a random but beautiful design.

For my last card I created an ombre effect with a twist. Instead of going from one side to the other with my gradient of colors, I used a circle shape and went from the outer edges of my card towards the center. This creates sort of like a tunnel effect and it really makes everyone focus on the center of the card.

Now to turn these watercolor panels into cards I added various stickers as sentiments. Also instead of mounting them on a regular card base, I decided to adhere them on some of the lovely cards that come in the Stay Sweet card set.

Violeta's Show Time Layout

Violeta's Show Time Layout

Hello! This is Violeta Scrap and today I want to show you a new layout that I have made with the Amy Tangerine’s collection Stay Sweet.

To make this project I have used the pictures of two puppy I have printed in 3x4 inches.

For the base of this project, I have used a patterned paper with details from the collection Stay Sweet and over it I have glued a white cardstock paper of 11.5x11.5 inches. 

Next, I have glued the pictures on the white paper and I have placed some details.  

The patterns of the Stay Sweet collection by Amy Tangerine are wonderful. I have used, among others, one with hedgehog patterns. It is one of my favorites.

To give more color to the layout, I have added some blue watercolor using the new watercolors from Amy Tangerine that are fantastic. It is one of my favorite elements from the new collection Stay Sweet. I really recommend them.

Zinia's DIY Minibooks

Hello everyone! It’s Zinia here and today I’m back with a really fun project to share with you.

I don’t know about you, but when I scrapbook, I tend to pick pattern papers with simple designs like stripes and dots. Although I love more complicated and busy patterns, from time to time, I feel intimidated to use them. I know I’m not alone in this so if you feel the same, I have a really cute project that’s perfect to use all those gorgeous patterns that are a bit more challenging to use on scrapbook layouts.

I won’t keep you wondering any longer, the project I’m talking about is DIY notebooks! They are perfect for journaling, planning or keeping notes about all sorts of things. You can also take them a step further and fill them with photos and memorabilia turning them into little minibooks/smashbooks. 

Zinia

For my minibooks I picked some patterns from the Stay Sweet 6x8 paper pad. One sheet of paper folds into a perfect 6x4 sized notebook! You pick any patterns you like no matter how simple or colorful. 

For the inside pages of my notebooks, I used printer paper but if you plan to turn them into minibooks or art journals, make sure to use the paper you will need.

There are millions of ways to bind a notebook but I went for a simple saddle stitch cause I really love the way it looks. Using the WeR Memory Keepers book binding tool, I poked the holes on my cover and pages and stitched along the spine following the instructions of the tool’s booklet. 

Zinia's DIY Minibooks

You don’t have to own the bookbinding tool to create this minibook but it definitely makes the process much faster and easier.

To finish my notebooks, I picked some sticker quotes and added the at the front size of the cover. Alternatively, you can a title or date of what’s inside using your favorite thickers or letter stickers.

It really makes me so happy and motivated to see these beautiful notebooks on my desk when I start my day. They also look incredibly pretty when they sit next to each other on a shelf.
