Wonderful White Cards

Hi Lovelies,

Today I'm sharing with you these seriously stunning cards designed by Helen. 
Helen has previously designed many layouts, albums, art journal and 
mixed media projects and has finally taken to cards!


 The cards focus heavily on embossing and die-cutting so it's the perfect
 opportunity to rummage through your collection and pull out 
your favorite embossing folders and dies!


 All three cards are made from white card stock with a single statement colour. 
The splash of soft pink on this card is just so stunning.

 

Tiny little pearls are the perfect way to subtly include a feature colour 
in your cards and create a seamless finish.

 

Helen has used Glitzin' Glamour to beautifully highlight the embossing 
patterns and die-cuts without introducing a new colour.


 Texture is the key to making a standout card when using a single colour scheme. 
Helen has created texture in these cards by using layers of intricate 
die-cuts over an embossed background.


 These cards by Helen are just stunning and they definitely won't be her last! 
Make sure to call the lovely ladies at the Scrap N Patch 
to book into Helen's card classes.

Monday Cards

Hi Lovelies,

After a lovely Christmas break things are back in motion this week! 
We kick off the year's first Monday Cards class with the lovely 'Beautiful You' range by Celebr8.

 
The range features soft pastel tones and a plethora of succulents, 
perfect for fussy cutting! 


This stunning card uses the Tim Holtz inks Scattered Straw, 
Shabby Shutters, Victorian Velvet and Weathered Wood to highlight 
the colours in this paper range. 


Liz has used the 'Succulent Garden' stencil with matte finish texture paste to 
create this unique, textured background.


With the finishing touch of a mounted cut-out sentiment, 
this card is simply beautiful. 


The background for this card uses the 'Swiss Dots' embossing folder 
which is the perfect staple pattern for any background.


If you are interested in finding out more about our card classes, please call the lovely ladies at 
The Scrap N Patch to find out more.

Vintage Tag

Hi Lovelies,

Today I'm sharing with you this gorgeous vintage tag
designed by the lovely Helen. 
This tag is scattered with vintage memorabilia, unique buttons, 
distressed music paper, delicate lace and precious photos.


Helen has kept a fairly neutral colour pallet for this tag by using postal tags
that have been inked and stamped as the background.
Torn, rolled and die cut music paper has also been used to
compliment and continue this neutral theme.


Beautiful soft hints of pink in the tiny flowers and lace are a beautiful
addition to the eclectic of vintage elements on this tag.

 
Helen's precious photo is surrounded by vintage buttons and 
sweet little metal star and heart embellishments. 
However, you could add absolutely anything
 to this tag to personalise it.


There are so many ways to get your treasured photos out of the boxes and on display. 
This vintage tag is perfect for those smaller photos or 
incorporating passed down trinkets. 


If you love this tag let us know and we 
might just run a class for it!

Chesteville Three Ways

Hi Lovelies,
Today's post is a bit of a unique one!
We're showing you three different ways you can use the same paper range.
We have created a Mixed Media page, Layout and Mini Album 
using 'Chesterville' by Blue Fern Studios.

The 'Chesterville' paper acts as the perfect background or base for any project. 
The neutral, earthy colours and patterns will suit any photos and embellishments.
All three projects are very different. To see more of each project and how it's been created, 
simply click on the picture!


The first wonderful creation from this range is a Mixed Media layout. 
This layout focuses on focusing on lots of colourful embellishments and uses 
the amazing Tim Holtz Distress Oxides to create a frosted layer over the Chesterville paper.


 This layout features the page 'Bretton' which has been 
softly inked to change it to the desired colour. The coordinating Blue Fern 
flowers have also been used and come in various colours.


Finally we have a gorgeous Mini Album that incorporates muted green and peach tones. 
The Chesterville paper adds texture and patterns to the album
 whilst allowing you to personalise the page with your own 
colours, papers and embellishments.  


The 'Chesterville' range includes 10 double sided pages that are 
waiting in store for you to take home and turn into something beautiful.
