Ep. 970 – Shimelle’s Collection with American Crafts

Scrap Time - Ep. 970 - Shimelle's Collection with American Crafts

Today I am showing you Shimelle’s first collection with American Crafts! She has an assortment of 12×12 papers, Thickers, Stamps, Rub-Ons, Die Cuts and more! This collection actually inspired me to make not 1, but 2 scrapbook layouts! I haven’t done a scrapbook layout in over a year! On the layout above I used a few of her smaller printed papers, I cut some words from another piece of paper, I used a variety of die cuts, I stamped around the edge and added in some gold heart rub-ons!

On this layout I used a lot more of the die cuts, the gold rub-ons, a dimensional sticker and the Gold Glitter Thickers! I cut the YYZ journal tag from a sheet of the patterned paper!

As well, all of these Instagram Sized journal cards were cut from a sheet of patterned paper! They are great for your layouts or for your pocket scrapbooking!

Of course, you can easily make cards using the papers and embellishments!

I love the font of the Gold Glitter Thickers – they are thin enough that you can use them on a card, or write out a longer title on a layout!

I love Shimelle’s first collection with American Crafts! I look forward to seeing what she does in the future!

Ep. 968 – Spellbinders Celebra’tions Collection

Scrap Time - Ep. 968 - Spellbinders Celebr'ations Collection

Today I am showing you a variety of products from the new Spellbinders Celebra’tions Collection! This is the first time that Spellbinders has come out with patterned papers, cardstock and ink that all co-ordinate! As well, there are stamps, embossing folders and dies! In the video I show you how I make the card above. I started with a piece of cardstock that I cut to make a 4 1/4″x5 1/2″ card. I stamped the large Doily Fun Stamp using the ink in the same colour as the paper. This gives you a great tone on tone background. I then cut the Tag using the Build-A-Tag Two set. It comes with 2 tag dies and 2 texture plates! You can see both above. I used the same colour ink pad to run over the embossed areas to highlight them. I cut a small and large Rosette from the Celebra’tions patterned paper and folded them to give them dimension. I layered the circle dies together, so I have a cut circle with the pierced holes around it, and stamped a greeting from the Many Words stamp set. I then layered it all together and added a few embellishments!

I did the exact same thing here, this time using Greens and Blues. I added some splatters of the new Silk Lustre Ink as well!

All of these products are new and are now shipping!

EP. 967 – Crystal Katana by the Crystal Ninja

Scrap Time - Ep. 967 - Crystal Kanata by the Crystal Ninja

Today I am featuring the Crystal Katana by the Crystal Ninja. This is a tool designed to pick up various sizes of rhinestones to add to your projects. I have had this tool since January, but didn’t really need to use it. Then the other day I was working with sequins, and having difficulty picking them up, and it occurred to me – I have the perfect tool! The Crystal Katana!! It has a wax tip on one end, that easily picks up all of those tiny sequins. I place a bit of glue where I want my sequin, pick it up with the Crystal Katana, then with the other end I press the sequin into the glue! So easy!! If you use a lot of sequins (or rhinestones) you definitely need the Crystal Katana by the Crystal Ninja!

This was a page I made for Exploring Art Journaling 3! It is now available as a self paced class!!
