Scrapbooking Layout + Video Tutorial : Lovely by Missy Whidden!

Hey there, friends!  Missy here again, and I have a fun layout to share today using stamps from three different sets.  I used the New Day Stamp Set, the This Moment Stamp Set and the Date Stamp Set.  I used up some of my stash for this page, and I really love how it turned out.  I wanted to do some heat embossing on my background, so I pulled the three circles from the New Day Stamp Set and used gold embossing powder on them.  I created my background using a wide strip of Dear Lizzy Documentary patterned paper and layering it over some white cardstock.  I covered a lot of the paper with white acrylic paint first.  I did the embossing once I decided where my photo was going to go.  After I did the embossing, I came in with some paints and sprays to jazz up the background and create a watercolor effect.  The fun thing about embossing is that it resists any liquid, so the color went on the areas in between the circles.

Look at how gorgeous these circles turned out!  You could do this technique with any of the stamps and any color powder.  I decided to embellish my layout with bits and pieces from the Fancy Pants Happy Place collection and the Simple Stories Life in Color collection.  My title is a black foam glitter sticker from Pinkfresh Studio.  I love how everything looks together with the gold stamped circles.

Here you can see all the layers I created by tucking in bits and pieces under and around the photo.  I also added some foam under all of it to raise it up off the page.  This creates such great dimension.  in addition to the packaging technique, I also used my brush and the nozzle to splatter the paint around the page.

I used the This Moment Stamp Set here down at the bottom to create this fun cluster.  I first used a few stickers from Simple Stories and then stamped that label with the heart and the word “memories” under it.  I also used the Date Stamp Set here to add the date.  To finish this area off, I ran it through my sewing machine using metallic gold thread.

I did more stamping above the photo using the phrase “This Moment” from the This Moment Stamp Set.  Those small sentiments aren’t just for cards; I love using them on my layouts like this.  They make the perfect little details.  Again, I added stitching along the grid paper for extra texture and shine.

I hope this inspires you to pull out your stamps and create a fun background with them.  And don’t shy away from using the smaller stamps on your pages, either!  Those little details can sometimes make the biggest difference.  I have a process video for you if you’d like to check it out.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a great day!

Design It Monday ~ Tiny Treats!

Hello Precious Remembrance Shop friends! Lisa here today with my first Design it Monday using the newly released Date Stamp Set. I’ve paired this versatile set up with a couple of others from the shop to create some fun tiny treats!

17 0205 004 copy

To begin my project, I created tags using the month and number images.  I stamped the heart rectangle from the This Moment Stamp Set then added the month from the Date Stamp Set. My day of the month was stamped on polka dot paper then punched with a 1/2″ circle punch. This was added to the tag with a foam pop dot. The teeny hearts from the Sweet Pea Stamp Set were added next.

The tags were adhered to a die cut heart. After adding the gray polka dot ribbon, I glued on the teddy bear from the retired Little One Stamp Set. I stamped just the head of the bear, colored with Copics then fussy cut.

These were popped onto tiny glassine bags measuring 4″ X 2 3/4″. When shopping for Valentine tiny treats to put in the bags, I was delighted to find Tiny Conversation Hearts!

Stay tuned for more projects from the team featuring our new set! LisaDT-659x1024

DIY Valentine’s Day Decoration / Banner + Video!

Welcome stampers! It’s great to be back again sharing another project idea for you – Valentine’s Day edition!:) You can pretty much make these banners in any theme, but since Valentines is just around the corner, it’s a perfect time to get inspired & create!:)

These are mini banners, I have quite a lot of scrap paper from my 6×6 paper pads, each banner measures approximately 2 “x 3”- cute!

(STAMP SETS: Love Coupon , Happy Art , Sweet Pea , This Moment , Thanks, School Days)

Now if you have some scraps – simply create some of these. I created a fish tail on each banner to add a little something since I didn’t add any embellishments except stamps.

I used 3 colors of inks – red, pink, & black. That will give us not only a Valentine inspired colors but it makes our banner look coordinated.

Most of the stamps that I used are not Valentine theme stamp set – always think outside the box –   versatile stamps is so much fun to work with, it goes a long way as far as creating different projects.

Lastly , I punched some holes to add my string. Now, you can easily add it to your Valentines decor, or how about to your Valentines gift bag? That’s pretty much what I would do!:)

So glad you stop by today!

Thanks again for joining & happy stamping!:)

Design It Monday ~ {Totally Masked!}

Hi there! Lisa here today with one more card featuring the Totally Stamp Set. I’ve combined it with some other PRS images to create a masculine card.

Project_20160806_0005

This card measures 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″. I stamped the ticket from the Love Coupon Stamp Set onto a Post-it note to create a mask. Then I stamped it three times onto a white panel. Next came one of the border images from the Totally Stamp Set. I used a Post-it note to mask off the edges of the tickets. Those tiny arrows in the opposing corners are also from  Love Coupon Set.

Project_20160806_0006

‘Monday’ and ‘Memories’ (This Moment Stamp Set) where stamped with Versa Mark ink then heat embossed with Liquid Platinum embossing powder. I colored the tickets with Tombow Brush Markers and added a few silver stars. Even guys like a little bling!

I went totally masked crazy on this one, hope you like it!!

Design It Monday ~ {You’re all that…and more!}

Hi friends, I’m back with another Design It Monday post using the new Totally stamp set. I have a bright and playful card to share today!

16 0720 0016

I started with a die cut tag then added the stamped images. I used the selective inking method on some of the sentiments from the set to mix things up a bit! The line under the word all is stamped a little crooked…oops! I guess that just adds to the hand made charm, looks hand drawn!

16 0720 0015

I used one of the underscores from the Sweet Pea stamp set to emphasis the word that. Several stars were added in three ink colors. The star splatters are from the Journey stamp set. I used one of the little rectangle boxes from the This Moment stamp set to add a hand written message. Some fun patterned paper and twine finished things off for me.

I think this saying applies to all of the PRS stamp sets. They mix and match so easily. Yep, “They’re all that and a bag of chips”!! How’s that for a throwback saying!! Thanks for stopping by.

Design It Monday ~ {A Gold Star!}

Hi there friends! Do you remember learning to write your letters in school? Working hard on that practice page, thinking you had made perfect letters only to have your teacher make red marks on your paper!! That thought inspired my card today featuring the School Days Stamp Set. But this time the student earned a gold star!I die cut two notebook pages. One from decorative paper and one cardstock. The dashed border from the new School Days Stamp Set made the lines on my paper. Using a Tombo marker, I did some selective inking on the letters to create my “practice page”. I layered these on an alphabet embossed panel decorated with a bit of patterned paper.

This student did a great job as you can see from the sentiment! I popped this up with a foam dot and backed it with the star banner from the This Moment Stamp Set. A little twine and a gold star gave this card the zip it needed.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great day!

Saturday Creations ~ {thanks for the memories}

Are you singing yet?  I have always LOVED that song ~ such wonderful memories!

I was inspired to make the following card using FOUR Precious Remembrance stamp sets including our newest School Days stamp set:

  In this next close up photo, you can see all four sets including School Days for the word “thanks,” Journey Stamp Set for the photo frame (which I stamped on vellum and backed with white), the Thanks Stamp Set for the words “for” and “the” which I stamped and cut out, and the stamp set This Moment for the word “memories:”

I LOVE combining all of the FAB Precious Remembrance stamp sets to make something a little different.  I used a chevron patterned paper and a light pink paper with little cameras to finish out my theme.

I hope you like it!
