If I had wings.....

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today and I'm using 7 Dots Studio papers - Cold Country.  This is a lovely collection with assorted papers in muted tones.  Creating the card from Bazzill Licorice cardstock makes the pattern papers pop.

I created a card using Spellbinders Grand Labels Ones dies and cut additional layers from  7 Dots Studio papers

A strip of music paper was torn and inked before adding it to the card front.  Additional papers were die cut to create the card's focal elements.  If you look closely, you'll see the bottom butterfly peaking off the edge of the die.  I fussy cut around it so that it would not be cut off during the die cut process.

All the layers were inked with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink before the card was assembled.

A father's love

Hi everyone!

Pi here with another baby layout.
However,  I'll be reluctant to post picture of my boy on the Internet, I hope you will all understand.

I have mainly used Graphic 45 deluxe collection baby 2 bride, but there are a couple of other collections as well. The background across the layout is from Le romantic and the bird in the lower left corner is fuzzy cut from Little darlings.  The paper and photo are matted with paper from my stash.

Products from the store:
Graphic 45 deluxe collection baby 2 bride (paper, cut a parts and stickers)
Stamping supplies (scissors, double sided tape)

So you see how easy it is to work with a collection pack :)

Happy Birthday Stencilled Tag

Hi everyone, Steph here today

What do you get when you use assorted colors of Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Tim Holtz Stencils?

Limitless creations!

Start with a Stencil and add assorted colors of Distress Ink - Peacock Feathers, Antique Linen, Walnut Stain and Rusty Hinge.  Keep adding color until you like the effect.  Mat the tag with a larger tag for extra support and also ink that with Antique Linen and Walnut Stain.

I thought this would make a great birthday tag so I used the Kaiser Hip Hip stamp set and inked it with Antique Linen and Rusty Hinge.  Just add some of your favorite May Arts ribbon and twine to finish.

Thank you for visiting

10 weeks to Christmas more or less

Hi everyone!

Pi here again :)
So Christmas is just around the corner - right?
Well, if you're not believing it now. You're in for a surprise later - LOL!
Times really flies.

But that's just me:)

There I've returned to a beloved technique, using Tim Holtz distress ink. I've started with embossing the background stamp to create a mask which will be really visual to the eye when you distress the card. I've then really blinged it up with the glimmer spray and you have the most gorgeous background paper.

I didn't want to cover it up, since the simplicity of itself is absolutely stunning. So I just wrapped some twine around it. The die cut is an oldie by Tim and the holly leaves are actually from an old punch, but I believe you can use this die from Memory box to achieve the same look.

Products used from the store:
Magnolia background stamp SILENT NIGHT
Distress ink FIRED BRICK
Prima bloom spray GOLD FOIL
Bakers twine RED
Stamping supplies (embossing ink, embossing powder, score tape, distress tool, ultra smooth paper)

Missing You

Hi everyone, Steph here today and I love these papers by 7 Dots Studio.

If you haven't seen these papers yet, they are gorgeous.  The background consists of 2 papers from the Nature Walk collection  that were torn and mounted on black cardstock.  The floral paper, also from this collection, was die cut and  matted with black for the focal image.  The images in this line are very subtle and would work with most projects.

I didn't want to detract from the papers used so I added a simple sentiment from Prima Marketing's Mixed Media Doll - Lots of Love stamp set.

Thank you for visiting.

Graphic 45 crossover

Hi everyone!

Pi here and I have finally managed to make a LO of my newborn precious baby boy. 

Kellie has brought in the latest of Graphic 45 and I am waiting for my DT-package to arrive with Graphic 45's Deluxe Collectors Edition Baby 2 Bride. But until then I made this layout with a cross over of several collectins from Graphic 45. I'm hoping to show you how easy it is to mix and match them.

The collections I've mixed are from Once upon a time, Little darlings and Birdsong. The LO is inspired from the sketch challenge at my local scrapbook store. The titel reads "finally!" in Swedish and I've used a lot of metal filigree and prima pearls from my stash.

Products used from the store:
Graphic 45 staples ornate metal keyholes
Vintage photo distress ink
Bazzil cardstock (matting)
Shimmer sprays (blue and brown droplets on the LO)
Stamping supplies (scissors for fuzzy cutting, tape, glue)

 I hope I've inspired you to look at your Graphic 45 collections differently.
