Party Favors...

Hello!! I share with you today these sweet party favor bags that you can give out at a baby shower (as shown for this post) or just bring them for a special friend or relative. I made this project using the fantastic Scrapbook Adhesives 3L products.

Instructions:

I made two favor bags from one 12 x 12″ cardstock sheet and adhered with the Premium Doubled-Sided Tape 1/4″. Start by cutting one sheet of cardstock in half. I made these for a girl but you can change the color for a boy.

With the long side of the paper, I scored at 1/2″, 1 1/2″, 5 1/2″ and 6 1/2″.

Then turned the paper so that the short side is up and score at 1″.


Return your paper on its long side and cut a tab at the 1/2″ score line up to the 1″ score line (cutting off a small rectangle shape). Then cut slits at the 1 1/2″, 5 1/2″ and 6 1/2″ (up to the 1″ score line). Then apply the Premium Doubled-Sided Tape 1/4″ as pictured above to assemble your bag.
Now for the fun part, embellishing! I embossed a piece of white cardstock with a floral design that goes perfect for a girl’s theme and added Pearlescent to each embossed flower’s center. Set aside to dry.

With the Dual Tip Glue Pen, I adhered a punched border and the embossed cardstock to the front of the bag. Then add sweet baby clothes using 3D Foam Squares White Mix for dimension. Finally, punch two holes towards the top of bag to threaded a ribbon to tie a bow and it’s ready to give!

Scrapbook Adhesives 3L used:
3D Foam Squares White Mix
Premium Doubled-Sided Tape 1/4″
Dual Tip Glue Pen
Other Products:
American Craft cardstock
Martha Steward Doily punch
Bo Bunny Sugar Pearlescents

Smile...

Hello there! I hope all of you are good. I'm very busy preparing kit to my workshops in Peru but my post today is about this page that I made with my new niece Milena and her sister Camila. I made this page inspired in the September challenge by Creative Embellishments.  Let's take a look...
I took the Wavy Film Trips  and Butterflies (set of 3) gave them a coat of gesso, after dry I applied Texture Paste. Once the paste is dry it gave textures to the chipboards then I painted them with an ivory acrylic paint. This paper is from an old collection by  Making Memory. I gave textures with the Fairy Dust Stencil and modeling paste.

I framed small photos in the Wavy Film Strips.  I added the Berries chipboard in the flower clusters. I gave a coat of gesso to them and added Sugar Pearlescent to create the pearl effect.


I selected Smile from the Happy Word Set as my title and I just painted in ivory acrylic paint. I stamped the background with the Distressed Text Stamp.


I added crackle paste to the paper to create these fantastic textures on the background.
Other products I used:
Prima Marketing
Heavy Gesso, Crackle Paste-clear, Modeling Paste, Arts Stones
Blue Fern Studios:
Flowers
Bo Bunny:
Sugar Pearlescent
Recollection:
Peach glass beads, white cord

Seabreeze Layout

Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing a beach  mixed media layout with you that I created with some of the fabulous Creative Embellishments chipboards.

I selected the Nautical 6 pieces set chipboard and gave a coat of gesso, after dry I took a sponge and applied Distress Oxide Ink in Vintage Photo color to all the chipboards to create a vintage, rusty effect.  The paper is from the Double Dot collection by Bo Bunny.


I did the same techniques that I gave to the other chipboards to the word Seabreeze from the Beach Word Set 2.


I love how the different nautical pieces looks on the background.

I I gave texture on the background with a texture crackle paste with 3D powder.  Then I painted the background with Color Blooms.
