Inspiration Post for March 26th

Hi, Debbie here - and it's my turn to do the Inspiration Post.
I have used this months Scrapbook Layout for my project.

Here is the layout:
Here is my mine:

I have used an old photo of our daughter Feather.  In this picture she is 3 years old (she is now 21 years old.)    I have always loved this picture of her.  She looks so serene in this picture and has her hands folder together like she is praying.   I have placed different sized clear flourishes around it...and added two paper flowers that I made using Astrid's February 5th Inspiration Post.
I used three different papers for the squares on the top and bottom - and then added her name in the middle of them with stick on letters.   The background of my layout is a pinkish shaded shiny patterned cardstock.    My project doesn't look exactly like the layout sketch, but that's the fun thing about being creative, and making your project "your's".


I would also like to share a technique that I like to do.
It's called "Shaving Cream Technique".
It's kind of messy to do - but it's fun :-)
And the patterns you create are unique and different each time.
  Here are pictures that shows the products and steps to it:
(I just used the colors Crimson and Green)
Next - put the shaving cream into the plate:
Note: I did not have much shaving cream left in the can, so it came out a little more runny and had bubbles...but it still worked good.
Swirl it around:
Lay your cardstock on it and press it down good:
Then take it off and wipe it off good with a paper towel - allow to dry:
This is what I ended up with:

Here is a card that I made with this.  I cut out one large heart and 5 small hearts.

I hope this has inspired you to be creative and try doing different techniques.

Inspiration Post | Painter's Tape Technique

Hi everyone, it's Louise here with you today and I would love to inspire you with a technique. The "Painter's Tape Technique" is certainly not a new one, but it is new to me and I have been having a lot of fun with it lately. You can use this technique to create interesting backgrounds or patterns for your projects and all you need are some inkpads and a roll of masking tape.

You can watch my little video tutorial below or at YouTube.


Inks: Stampin' Up Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Strawberry Slush.

I hope you'll be inspired to give it a try!

Inspiration Post for March 17 - by Debi Clark






















I just love using Washi tape, so thought I would show you a few techniques 
that I use & have gone into making my card. 
My card is based on the Feeling Sketchy #80 sketch.

















1.       I have used older & large chipboard alphas, that I probably wouldn’t have used otherwise. Then I patiently sat & wrapped the washi around the alphas.

















2.  It then looks just like this!


2. Another technique is to have some backing paper, & layer on washi tape .......


like this....











Then draw a shape or two, whatever you like - I made triangles...










Fussy cut them out...













Then decorate your card as you choose!

I used the washi chippie alphas, the washi flags & then edged my card with more washi.

What do you think??















Thank you for looking...Happy Scrapping!

Cheers, Debi Clark
