Welcome to my turn this April to show you the projects I’ve created. This month, I’ve been really lucky to get a load of Darcie’s products to play with. This company was new to me, but after trying stamps and her tin pins and papers, I’ll certainly be using their products again!
This first project is a simply stamped card using the Darcie’s acrylic stamps and is really quick and easy. You only need limited supplies; 2 pieces of patterned paper & 3 colours of ink. Just by adding some tiny punched red circles and little green gems, makes the stamped image a real focal point and proves yet again, why stamping is so popular and versatile.
The second project is a bit of a favourite and is showcasing a little known craft product; cupcake cases!! I’m always on the lookout for something different to create with and when I spied these pretty cases in my local supermarket, I had to do something with them. The double bonus is that I don’t put on on any weight after I’ve finished with them! You’ll find out exactly how to create these on-trend rosettes by watching the accompanying video tutorials in the Paper Crafter’s Library. If you’re not sure about joining this brilliant craft resource- check out here– which is a link to the free section of video tutorials that will hopefully whet your appetite as to the quality and range of videos that you can access as a fully paid up member.
My last project is a scrapbook page. The tutorial will show you how to complete everything on the page- from the hidden journalling, to the punched flower rosette or the fun bunting.
It’s a page that I’ve designed especially to help you use up those smaller and less exciting photographs; the ones that tell a story and give you a flavour of what happened but would normally stay in the box or in the file as they’re perhaps not worthy of a single or double photo layout. It’s an extensive tutorial- definitely one where you need a cup of tea and chocolate biscuit to keep you company whilst you’re watching it!
Hope you’ve gained a little inspiration to go and create a new project- maybe from some kitchen products or go and dig out your stamps and get them inky!
Until next time… xx
