Layout Remember

Hi! Monia here! Today I show a mixed media layout with a motorbike trip photos made last year... in Italy we have a large number of castles and fortresses, a delight for tourists!
For this layout I chose a frame sketch,i hope you like it!

First we need to work on Rocking-Horse-Specialty-Paper

I added some old book paper stripes and Blue Daisy Stripe Cardstock.

I added some white gesso with a stencil

...some color sprays

I created a frame with  Black-Cardstock and I distressed the edges
   I left more space below to insert title

I also added some Blue Daisy Stripe Cardstock stripes and white gesso randomly and some little drops of acrilic paint

 some frame details...

applied double-sided adesive in the back of cardstock

I fussy cutted the  Clock-12x12-CanvasStock-can-clock-12  I sprayed canvas clocks with ink sprays then I added white chipboard gears and Remember-White-Glitter-Chipboard title
I also added the photos! :)

this is the finished project

Wise Guys

These wise owls would make a great center piece for a party for that person that loves owls!!!  I had a lot of fun making them!!!  Today I decided to pull out some of my old dusty paper punches and give them a work out!

Rosy Diamond Cardstock

Blue Fleur Cardstock
Diamond Dew Drops Orange
Pearl Dew Drops
Double stick tape
Tacky Glue
Gold Pen
Black marker
Circle Punch 1 1/2 inch
Oval punch 2 inch
Heart punch 1 inch
Large Paper reinforcements (old stock in my stash)

Punch 8 to 12 hearts, depending on the size of hearts you use.  For the lighter color hearts I outlined them with a black marker.

Cut beak from scraps of the Honeycomb Fleur Cardstock after the hearts were punched.

Punch two eye for each owl with 1 1/2 inch Circle Punch 1 1/2 inch.  For the white of the eye around the pupil I used large paper reinforcements (old stock in my stash).  You could punch a smaller white and black circles.

Punch two ovals for wings.

Then start to assemble using tacky glue.  On the Pink Owl the first row of hearts are behind the beak... you will notice on the other two I put the beak behind the first row.  This is a fun project, there isn't a right or wrong way to make your owls!
Here is the pink owls feathers ready to attach. 
Measurement of the three owl bodies are:
8  x 6 inches
7 x 5 inches
4 x 6 inches 
To create body cut desired body size... with double sided tape on one of the short sides adhere to the other end to create a tube. 

With the seam side closest to you, pinch the sides as pictured above.

Fold down the seamed side as pictured above.

Turn the tube around and fold the other side.  You have just formed the owls head!!!

Pictured above are all the parts.... the tube (or body), eyes, wings, beak, and body feathers (hearts).  Now you are ready to assemble. 
Once all of the hearts are glued together attach them to the body with tacky glue, then eyes and wings.
Adhere the bottom outside hearts to the body so they don't stick out like a dress!
Aren't they the cutest!!!!

Hello crafty friends, Giorgia here.
Today I have for you another layout about my wedding day: I used The Robin's Nest  amazing products to create a clean and simple page.

Product used

Other: puffy stickers, 3D sticker, orange cardstock

This is how I made my layout and some close up.

As first step I always gather all the possible supplies I will need: I decide the picture and then search coordinating papers, embellishments, stickers and so on and put them all together. It helps me a lot on developing my layout.

As background for this layout I used "Pink swirl with green" cardstock. I cut a stripe of   "Bunny" cardstock, distressed it with scissors blade and adhere it in the centre - remember to put glue only in the middle of the paper to have the possibility to add layers under this one!

I cut striped from "Bunny stripe" cardstock, distress them and adhere them this way: 

I matte picture on a distressed piece of orange cardstock and glued it down with foam tape to create dimension:

I fussy cut a glittered tag, cut it in a half and adhere it under my picture as shown:

I had this cute 3D sticker that was just perfect for my picture: I attached it and I added the lovely  Heart paper clip as if it hangs from it!

I added dew drops: you know how much I love them! They always add an extra touch to each project! You can choose from so many colors and they also come in teardrops and diamond shapes, take a look!

Finally I added puffy stickers for the title:

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you liked my project.
Remember to take a look at the shop to see all the amazing Robin's Nest products.
