Alaska Hike

Hello Robin's Nest Readers,

Robin Posting today.

Still more Alaska pictures!

I'm getting closer to getting this trip finished!
So more to come.

I wanted to do something completely different with this layout.

I decided to add a bright pink with the green to this layout.
It is just a simple layout, but so monumental
to the trip.  We just had lots of fun in the beautiful
Alaska mountains.
Who could not fall in love with this scenery?

I can see why people love to live in Alaska, I will 
add to that, in the Summer!

I don't enjoy the winters, but seriously, I don't really enjoy
the winters period.  I like them, just not for a very long time.
But, alas, I live in Utah, so there is cold, cold, cold.
So while, I am in the cold, I love to flip through
my summer photos and enjoy the warmth that is inseminated by the photos.

I love how the pink and green go together with these 
fun photos,  can you see the fire plants that are
so famous in Alaska in these pictures?

They line the roads everywhere there and bring such beauty to the 
state.  We went blueberry picking, but didn't find any blueberries on this trip,
just hiked, and enjoyed the view of these gorgeous mountains

I used the Glitter Clover CS, Pink Glitter Sorbet, Discovery Girl,
and the Outdoor Sticker.

Have a great day.

Life Is Like Photography

Hey there Scrappy Friends!
Lisa here today to share a layout with you.
Our quote to use this month is "Life is like photography, use the negatives to develop" I decided to use that as my title along with some negatives to base my photo on.

I used Wedding Swirl Glitter Cardstock as my background and added green water color around the edges. I love how the embossed parts of the paper resisted the color.
Cut Red Plain Linen Cardstock 4 1/4x 5 3/4".
Cut Red Glitter Paisley Cardstock 4x 4 1/4".
Cut negative diecut out of black cardstock.

Cut Camera diecut out of Kiwi Sorbet and black cardstock and layer them.
Punch border (10x2 1/4") from Tulip Wheels Cardstock and fussy cut a few of the flowers.
Trim 2- 4x6" photos down to 3x 4 1/2".
Cut part of the title using diecut machine. Add Red Alpha Glitter Stickers and stitch.
Add Dew Drops to center of fussy cut flowers:

Here are the products I used:

                                                I hope I have inspired you in some way today.
                                                                      Enjoy your day!

Make your own paper tape with your Robin's Nest scraps

If there is one common denominator among crafters, it is that we are all hoarders. It is sooooo hard to throw away a scrap of paper--especially when the paper is as beautiful as a Robin's Nest product.

For me, Betsy Skagen, the trouble starts when I begin a project and automatically go to look in my stash of new papers, (which happen to be carefully organized by color, pattern and even brand), instead of digging through my box of scraps. Pretty soon, the scraps are overtaking the studio.

The other day I saw an article in Country Living magazine about using up wrapping paper leftovers, and it inspired me to try doing something similar with one of my favorite Robin's Nest Papers. I hope you will agree that the results are delightful.

Tutorial: How to make paper tape

You only need four items for this quick, easy and frugal project. In addition to your leftover Robin's Nest paper, you need to get some double-sided adhesive that has the protective liner on both sides of the adhesive, a pipe cleaner and a wooden spool. You can find all of these here, or at many craft stores.

Step One
Using a paper trimmer, cut 12" strips of your Robin's Nest Cardstock so that is just slightly wider than the width of your double-sided adhesive. I used the fetching Classic Roses Cardstock.

Step Two
Working in small sections, peel off one side of the adhesive tape and adhere it to the back side of your cardstock. When you reach the end of a 12" strip, line another strip up so that the ends are flush and repeat the process.

Step Three
After making several yards of paper tape, cut the end of the adhesive tape, leaving a one-inch tail.

Step Four
Adhere the tail to either a new or a vintage wooden spool. Wrap the paper tape around the spool.

Step Five
String a coordinating pipe cleaner through the spool and twist it once or twice so that it holds the tape in position.

Step Six 
when you are ready to use your paper tape, just unroll some from the spool, pull of the remaining adhesive liner and adhere to your desired surface. I'm sure you will discover many uses for this pretty paper tape, including scrapbook layouts, crafting projects and gift wrapping.

What you need

  • Robin's Nest cardstock, such as Classic Roses Cardstock
  • Wooden spool
  • Double-sided adhesive with liner
  • Metallic pipe cleaner

Altered Photo Family Tree

Hi, Ann here today from Annmakes for The Robin's Nest Design Team.  Today I have this Photo Tree  Home Decor item to show you.

It started off as a very plain unfinished wood tree with round frames for holding pictures.  Then, with some paint and Hillside Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest I transformed the plain tree into something nice enough to display.

I painted the tree with a specialty paste in a chocolatey brown coloured.  Let it dry.

I used a good strong liquid glue to adhere the blue and brown  Hillside dew drops.

With the "Family" rub on sheet AND the actual packaging I created a sign to hang from the tree.  I pierced two holes and added eyelets through which I strung a piece of cord.

Supplies from The Robin's Nest used:

Hillside  Mini Dew Drops (Cowboy Collection)
Family Rub On

Thank you for stopping by and have fun altering your own project.  Please, check out my other projects at my blog, Annmakes.

Light and Airy Card Set

Hi, crafty peeps! It's Ro here today to share a card set I created with the beautiful Robin's Nest papers.

I love how the blues are so striking against the glittered cardstock and white background. The list of supplies used is at the end of this post.

To start, cut 4 pieces of white cardstock to A2 size (8.5" x 4.25", fold in half). For the top layers, cut 4 pieces of blue glitter cardstock (2 Teal, 2 Ocean) to 4 1/8" x 4 1/8". Then cut 4 pieces of the wedding glitter cardstock to 4" x 4".

Adhere the layers together and attach them to the card base toward the top of the card.  Die cut and stamp four feathers each from Teal and Ocean Glitter Cardstock and attach to the card. Add three Dew Drops and stamp the sentiment.

For the inside of the card, ink up the feather stamp and stamp off once on scratch paper, then stamp on the card. This gives it a lighter touch and enables the sender to write on the inside without the background getting in the way.

These cards were so quick and easy to do. I simply stamped them with four different sentiments and bound four of them together with a ribbon. They make great gifts for shower prizes, hostesses, or for craft fair sales.

I hope I inspired you to try mass producing some easy, yet beautiful, cards.  All four cards only took three pieces of cardstock to decorate the card bases. See you soon!
