Chipboard Plaques

So I found these chipboard pieces in my stash and got creative!  They were marked way down and “as is” in the clearance section.  I think they were meant for a chipboard book but I love what I did with them.  There were three holes at the top and I just covered the middle one with paper and ribbon and used the outside ones.  I used Cricut Craft Room to design these, making it super easy to size all the lettering!

Artbooking Layout Series – Wintertime 2

Easter Wonder Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH Artbooking Cricut Collection, unknown CTMH retired papers, CTMH Cardstock (Sweet Leaf, retired purple & pink), unknown rhinestones, Zig Markers.

I changed up this wintertime layout to create a springtime layout.  The overlays make it easy to add a lot of pictures to the pages.  I altered the “wonderland” title but cutting it so it became “wonder” instead.

Technique Blog Hop – Spray Pen

Welcome to this month’s blog hop!  This time around we are using the spray pen and hope you find lots of inspiration for this technique.  If you have already started the hop, you will be coming from Michelle.

Easter Layout by Wendy Kessler
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Unknown Paper Packet (retired), Sweet Leaf Ribbon (retired),
Colonial White Cardstock, Hollyhock CardstockCreate-a-Shade Paint, Spray Pen, Hollyhock Reinker, Cricut Artiste Collection, Just Blooms Paper Shapes – Petals (retired), and Colonial White Brads.  Sketch from Sketch Savvy.

I used the spray pen in a very simple way but it is my favorite.  I used it to spray the background paper of my layout.  This is a great way to add a touch of color and pattern without using patterned paper.  I also sprayed the Just Bloom Flowers, some lighter and some darker for variety.  For my mixture, I filled the pen with water up to the 7th line, then added reinker up to the next line, and added 4 drops of the Create-a-Shade Paint.  I always add the Create-a-Shade Paint because I like the extra little sparkle that it adds.

Artbooking Layout Series – Freedom 2

Celebrate Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH Artbooking Cricut Collection, CTMH Dotty For You Paper (retired), CTMH Cardstock (White Daisy & Cotton Candy), CTMH Black & Grey Glitter Paper, foam dots, Tattered Angels Trunk Bay Glitter Mist.

Glitter Mist was the perfect solution to toning down the brightness of the white cardstock and blended it better with the layout.  I am not much for journaling but this was a time that I didn’t want to forget.  Sometimes I will just write on the back of a layout but this one I used the space around the photo mats.

TIP: The stars on the photo mats (attached with pop-dots) are the inside shape from the starburst on the top of the page.  Since the inside star cut first I set the starburst to cut on the Cricut and then used the stop button when the inside star was done and repeated this until I had a bunch of the small stars to use for the rest of my layout.
