Zinia's Rainbow Handlettering Layout

Hello scrappy friends! It’s Zinia here and today I’m back with a super colorful layout idea using Amy’s new watercolor set from Stay Sweet!

The idea for this layout came from Amy’s beautiful watercolor lettering so I decided to use my journaling as the centerpiece of my layout I write it down using rainbow shades of watercolors.

Zinia's Rainbow Handlettering Layout

I started by writing down my journaling on a large strip of paper. I used almost all the colors from the watercolor set and went from yellow to orange to red, pink, purple, blue and green.

I decided to add some mixed media on my background as well so I pulled out a sheet of mixed media cardstock and created a watercolor rainbow following the same color order.

I just went all out adding a lot of color and water and letting them do their thing. I left my background to air-dry for a while before I continued with the rest of the page.

Once the background was dry, I placed the journaling strip in the middle and added a few additional embellishments. I added some enamel hearts all around the page, in matching colors of the rainbow and also a couple clear phrase stickers to serve as a title on the page.

I really wanted to focus on the bright colors and the beautiful watercolor effect on this page so I didn’t want to go overboard with the embellishments. So I just added a little magnetic bookmark on my photo and then I picked a yellow suede flower and unrolled it into a strip. I adhered the suede strip next to my photo like a border piece to help it stand out.

The process of creating this page is really so fun and relaxing. You don’t need any special artsy skills as this watercolor set is super easy to use. The colors spread and blend on their own without any struggle.

Violeta’s Journal Folders!

Hello! I am Violeta Scrap and I am very happy to be here in Amy’s blog to show you one of my new projects.

This time I want to show you how to make some folders for the new Journal Studio products in a very practical and easy way.

To make these journals what we are going to do is to take one of the papers of Amy Tangerine’s collections and we will cut a piece of 8.5x9 inches. Once you have this piece we bend it in half and with the rest of the piece of paper we will do two extra pieces of 4.5 inches width.

We will take out a piece of paper from these two extra pieces in a diagonal way and we will glue them inside the folders so we create some pockets.

As you can see, it is very easy to make pockets for your scrapbook journals. When we have our folders ready, what we will do is to decorate the cover of both folders.

You can combine different elements to decorate the folders. I have used different die cuts and some decorative elements of different collections of Amy Tangerine to create different titles.

That way the project is finished. As I commented it is a very easy project to make and you can use different papers for them, and they are very practical as you can keep there pictures, things of a travel and other kind of elements.

I hope you liked this project and that you practice making some folders for your journals.

See you soon!

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.

IMG_0097.JPG

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.

IMG_0095.JPG

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. 

Expo Layout

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!
