Scrapbooking your trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Hello and welcome to the blog today.  Shelly with you sharing another Harry Potter themed scrapbook layout.  I made two trips to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter last year - - I am a fanatic and even own my own Hufflepuff robes!

Today's layout focuses on lunch at the Three Broomsticks - and every scrapbook page, card or craft project I create is finished off with Dew Drops!

Let's gather our supplies:

Blue Robin Glitter Cardstock - use Distressed Ocean side (Cut 8" x 9")
Dew Drops Mix - Getaway (one of my top 3 favorite color mixes!)
Diamond Dew Drops - Black
Doillie Die Cut
Dragon Card from Orange Crush Cards Set
12 x 12 Base (I am using a ledger printed cardstock)
Optional:  Label from restaurant, wood veneer

This is a simple layered layout - I begin from the center and work outward - 1st by attaching my photos to cardstock mat and then adhering the whole piece to my base.

A little spritz of  Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist for extra interest, and then layer on my embellishments.

And always, the final touch, Dew Drops!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today - have creative (and magical) week!

Drops In The Ocean: A Summer Vacation Layout How To

Hello there crafty friends!
Welcome to the Chattering Robin's blog.

Michelle here today to share with you how I created my latest scrapbook layout 
project featuring FABULOUS summer fun themed products from 
The Robin's Nest.

To create one for your self you will need
from The Robin's Nest:

Water Sticker

Sea Horse Glitter Chipboard

Sea Glass Tear Drops

Riverside Mini Dew Drops

Additional supplies used:
Beach/Ocean Themed Scrapbook Paper
Bubble Cut-Outs
Starfish Cut-Out Border
Wave Coat-Out Border
Chipboard Wording
Ink Spray
Ink Pad
Double Sided Tape
12x12 Canvas (for mounting layout as art)

To begin, I chose an ocean themed paper from my stash as the layout choice
for photo's from a family vacation in 2016,
in which one of my nieces got to see the ocean for the very first time,
this paper was perfect for this project.

After choosing photos to use, I then used my Cricut machine, and cut out "bubble" shapes to coordinate with the bubbles from The Robin's Nest water sticker collection sheet  that I had chose for this project.

I used glue (my prefered glue is Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect) 
applied with the No-Clog Writing Tip, (also from ScraPerfect), to apply precisely the amount of glue I needed to add glitter to the bubble design. 

With ink in a sand color, I went around the edges of my cut out starfish border for slightly more definition.
I also used glue & glitter on the ocean wave border for added definition.

With a deep blue ink spray, I randomly spritzed the paper, to add a shaded effect to the layout design, followed by random paint splatters in a light blue & white. 

Once dried,I added the bubble stickers & various shades of Riverside Mini Dew Drops as well as a few Sea Glass Tear Drops to further resemble under water bubbles  and drops throughout the design.

I glued the glittered bubble cutouts diagonally to the paper, and added the photos with double sided tape.

To finish the design, I added the ocean wave & starfish borders, as well as a glittered sentiment to the bottom of the photos.
I also added the glittered chipboard Sea Horse's from The Robin's Nest to each end of the borders.

I decided to make this layout a piece of art, so I adhered it to a 12x12 deep canvas, and presented it as a gift to my niece, as keepsake of her first trip to Florida.

A perfect way to display a fun summer memory.

Thank you so much for visiting today, while here be sure to visit our designer galleries at the top of the blog, and find even more inspiration for your next project.

Baby Girl Welcome Card

Hello There!! Jenn here today to share with you this adorable welcome to the world baby girl card using Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest!
For this card the following Dew Drops were used:

Hyacinth Dew Drops
Baby Girl Dew Drops
Other Supplies Used:
Paperhouse Bella Baby Papers
Pink glitter card stock
5 X 7 blank card base
yellow card stock
Adhesive runner

This is a fairly simply card created by layering coordinating papers.
Begin by cutting a piece of patterned card stock to 4 3/4" W by 6 3/4" H. Adhere this to the inside of base using an adhesive tape runner. Add a sentiment cut out from the paper collection.
Next, cut a piece of yellow card stock 4 3/4" W by 6 3/4" H. Adhere this to the front as the first layer. The next layer is patterned paper cut to 4 1/2" W by 6 1/2" H. Next add another patterned piece cut at 4" W by 6" H. Next, a piece of pink glitter card stock 3 3/4" W by 5 3/4" H. The last layer is a cut out sentiment from the paper collection. Add some fun stickers. For the final step to make this card really pop add Dew Drops in pink tones all around the edge. I chose a pattern with polka dots and used them as a guide. Add a couple of white Dew Drops to highlight the stickers.
Dew Drops add a special, beautiful touch to any project!!
Here is the inside of the card as well as a closer view.

An exploding box with a hidden box inside

Hello to you all, it's Libeeti's here, sharing with you an exploding box which is actually a mini album, with a hidden box inside, a place to hold all sort of jewles, etc.

I decorated the lids with Robin's Nest Tear Drops, from the Christmas tree tear drops collection
And I also used some dew drops from the Easter dew drops collection

Here are some close ups on the details:
This is the opened box, with the hidden box inside. Each pannel has a pocket to hold more photos and memoranda.
Each of the pannels is a mini mini album for itself, with flaps and pockets.
A close-up on the big box lid:

And this is the small box lid:
See how much the dew drops add beauty to the die-cut doily? I just love it.

You can see more of the inside on my blog.
Thank you for watching and have a wonderful crafty day.

Tag Let's Fly Away

Hi everyone!!

Here is Elisa from Italy and today I want to share with you my new tag, realized using diamond drops, mini dew drops, fish net and the wonderful birch tree straws by The Robin's Nest.

What did I want to express with this tag? Summer... Brightness... The warm sun rays on my skin... The smell of sand and salt on the seaside.
For the first time (I think) I realized the tag on a white cardstock... No background stamps, no distressed edges. Only white cardstock, for reaching more brightness. Dew drops are perfect on a white background, they show all their beauty!!!

These are the supplies I used:

I hope you enjoy my tag!!!
Till next project!!!
