Artist Trading Coins with Simona...

Hello everyone and Happy Sunday! Simona's here with some new inspiration...
I love ATC - that is Artist Trading Cards - but recently I keep seeing these  'round' ATC, which are called Artist Trading COINS...the measurement is 2 1/2 inch, or 6,4 cm, of diameter...basically no difference but the not try and make a set of them!

The main struggle has been finding something I could use as a guide,since I have no dies or punches that I have used a jar lid that was just perfect. Traced in onto white cardstock, than onto scraps of the Cherry Blossom paper I had left  and glue them together...this project is perfect to use those bits and pieces of leftover paper!
The assemblage is very easy, lots of fussy cutting for the elements, used foam tape to raise some of them, add some black thread and that's it...

Hope you liked the results and will try and make some too...would love to see them!

These are the supplies used from SCRAP & CRAFT Store:

- Studio 75 'Cherry Blossom' 30x30 paper set
- Bambino Glue

Thank you for stopping by...see you next time!

Card with chocolate

Hello everyone, it's Monika today with new inspiration for you.
This time I made a card with a pocked inside for a chocolate and used Cherry Blossom paper collection by Studio75 for it. This collection has extra die cut sheets which can be used for fussy cutting, I used few of the cherries to give even more dimensions and interest to my project. 

Of course I couldn't resist and had to add more flowers inside the card as well. 

Hope that you can see how this extra cherries gives nice lift to this project.

Studio75 "Berry Cherry" birthday card ~ Lynne

Hello dear crafters! Lynne here with a step card featuring a combination of papers from two Studio75 collections, "The Berry Copse" and "Cherry Blossom". I found the neutral papers in the two packs coordinated beautifully together, and the soft green was a lovely complement as well.

I started with a 6" x 12" strip; after a few folds and cuts I ended up with this stand-up shape

I left the chipboard piece uncoloured as the natural shade matched the papers so well:

The Berry Copse paper pack, 12x12
Cherry Blossom paper pack, 12x12
Organza Rose trim , ecru
Scrapiniec Happy Birthday

So glad you stopped by, and I hope you enjoyed seeing my card!! Have a wonderful, colourful, creative week!

SUMMER DREAM layout with Simona

Hello everyone! I'm Simona  and today I want to show you my brand new project for Scrap&Craft...a breezy, summery LayOut...
I am very fond of this picture, taken last year on the beautiful and 'wild' Ag. Theologos beach in Kos...the mesmerizing sound of the waves and the amazing shades of the sea are still so vivid in my memories...
I have used a sheet of 12x12 paper from the 'Daydream' collection by Lemoncraft...these papers are absolutely gorgeous! The designs are so beautiful and perfect for my Summer mood!

Let's start...

I have covered the paper with Clear Gesso, then with a wash of white gesso added with a brayer.
Tried to add a composition of my elements, and when I have found the perfect placement I added colour using Inks, stamped here and there for more interest and then added modeling paste through a stencil...while it was still wet I sprinkled with embossing powder and heat set.
More stenciling with a white acrylic paint and dried it well.

Glued all the layers under the photo..I have used a lot of scrap papers, cardboard and pieces of vellum, when everything was in its place I added more colour with ink and a brush, dried and glued the 3d elements...Added also pieces of chipboard previously coated with white gesso.

Here's more details...


Hope you enjoyed this week's project...I wish you a great Sunday and....see you next time!

Beautiful Marilyn- Craft o'clock "Celebrate Today" layout by Lynne

Hello there! I love the soft greens and greys in this lovely paper line and I knew it would look perfect with this photo of Marilyn Monroe that I've been wanting to use on a page for a while.  I love vintage movies and stars, and every so often I create a layout featuring one.

I stenciled with texture paste and misted here and there, and I couldn't resist making a few more foamiran flowers for added texture.

The leaf sprays were diecut then rubbed onto a green inkpad. The beautiful flowers in the paper pack are perfect for fussy cutting and layering. I randomly punched along the edge with a notebook punch for a little added interest, and added the looped pearl string, which I got at the dollar store.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my page; if you've ever done a celebrity layout, I'd love to see it on our Scrap & Craft Inspiration page!  Wishing you a wonderful and creative week!
