Posts Tagged ‘handmade paper’

I altered notebooks as Christmas gifts for the teachers, they are similar but I used different papers on them (Indian handmade) and cut out names and decorations using the Gazelle.  The inside covers are stamped with Memento Inks and then covered/sponged with Distress Inks. Those inks works so well together! The paper on the inside cover comes from Svartvik Paper.

Some LO’s I’ve made during the past year – very mixed!

What’s up and what’s down? The flower is from a Prima Mini-can and the leaf from an ordinary satin flower.

This PP is from Dovecraft, stickers from Bo Bunny, flowers from Prima. Hey, there’s a strange flower in there…

I have started an album for Kevin’s teacher, which will leave the class after three years. This is one of the LO’s from a Star Night they had last year. The K&Co paper went so well with the colors in the photo. The daisies are a BossKut original cut with the Gazelle, and the strange trimming is made with seed beads using a necklace pattern!

I get all my seed beads from my favorite bead supplier, Zionesse. They have everything I need for bead weaving. I’ve made a whole bunch of decorations using the left-over beads. A fun way to jazz up the pages!

It’s Friday already – the week has passed quickly and today I’ll make a card for my SIL who celebrates her 40th birthday this weekend.

This weekend we’re blog hopping at CropStop! Read more here!

I promised you yesterday that I would give you something not so pink today… So I will!

Let’s start with something blue, very blue.

I made this LO for a challenge at CropStop a few weeks ago, using plain white cardstock which has been stamped and colored with Distress Inks, and the felt is actually a place mat for the table! The apricot colored flowers are Prima, from their Carribean Collection. Some jewelry parts in silver plated was to finish it off.

More blue, but a winter motif:

The word SNOW gets diverse reactions in our family. DH hates it, it has to be shoveled, while the kids love it, at least for a while. Up here in the north we do get a lot of snow, and it stays usually until mid April. It’s a long winter…

I’ve used Bazzill CS and plain white CS which I cut with the Gazelle to get the lovely edges. Tags, swirl and paper flowers are also Gazelle, the fabric flowers all comes from silk flower arrangements. I’ve used a lot of jewelry parts on this one, from the flower centers to the parade of ice bears! Oh, don’t forget the Distress Inks…

More blue…

Again plain white CS, Tim Holtz mask and Distress Inks, added some UTEE in platinum to the swirl, Crackle Paint on the chipboard alphas. The date tag is colored with Alco Inks. A 7Gypsies Inspection Tag, some Prima flowers and then bits and pieces from my stash. The paper flowers are Gazelle and inked.

Yep, the small pieces down in the right corner are mosaics.

My dining room floor was good enough to scrap!

Looks lovely, doesn’t it? Brown Bazzill CS, handmade paper from Svartvik, with inked edges, a swirl in gold from the Gazelle, some Prima flowers and a few jewelry parts.

Back to blue…

img_7415

White CS, Tim Holtz masks, Distress Inks and some UTEE in platinum along with Heidi Swapp clock stamps gives the background. The silver colored stuff are all jewelry parts, the blue frame is clear acrylic colored with Alco Inks, the tag is made with the Gazelle and the flowers are Prima (Mini Can). The name tag is made in Faux Dichro technique.

The silver colored net is something I found in my fabric stash.

Yes, you’re absolutely right. No printed paper today, either! I will give you some of that next week…

I usually don’t create my LO’s using sketches – but when there’s a challenge, I do! I found this one at the Cropstop Forum and it’s the challenge for January. Hurry on, girls! Create and join!

I bought this patterned paper when I started almost three years ago, and have no idea which manufacturer it is. The journaling is made on handmade paper from Svartvik Paper.

Here’s a closeup on the title, created with chipboard alphas from Panduro, Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels and UTEE in gold:

I had a great helper in Kelly when washing up the porcelain for Christmas (yes, I use special china then!)

The photo mat is made from mulberry paper, colored with Distress Inks, it makes a lovely effect!

I still have tons of pictures from Christmas to scrap – and I thought Christmas was over… Never for a scrapper, though!
