Emotional Scrapbook Page with The Robin's Nest

Hi dear friends,
It's Angela here and today I would like to show you an emotional scrapbook layout using the beautiful pinky Robin's Nest papers and cards.
I said emotional because this photo represents a particular joyful moment in my life, even if my mate in the picture probably is not aware of that.

Ciao cari amici,
Sono Angela e oggi vorrei mostrarvi un layout istintivo realizzato con le bellissime carte e cards rosa di The Robin's Nest.
Ho detto istintivo perché questa foto rappresenta un momento particolarmente gioioso della mia vita, anche se la mia compagna in foto forse non ne è pienamente consapevole.

It's emotional also because I made it by intuition, allowing my hands to work by themselves. 
Have you ever tried that? Believe me, it's therapeutic!

E' emotivo anche perché è stato realizzato di getto, lasciando che le mani lavorassero da sole.
Avete mai provato qualcosa di simile? Credetemi, è terapeutico!

The main embellishment, at least the one that capture the attention the most, are the light pink flowers, with a little crossttich in the center, to keep them in place.

La decorazione principale, o meglio quella che cattura maggiormente lo sguardo, sono i fiori rosa chiaro con un piccolo punto croce all'interno, per tenerli fermi.

Cards, I used several cards to decorate the layout, but my preferred is this, YOU ARE MY FAVORITE, with a beautiful rose in the center.

Cards, ho usato diverse cards per decorare il layout, ma la mia preferita è questa, YOU ARE MY FAVORITE, con una bellissima rosa nel centro.

How To Make A Cute Easter Card From Scraps

Good Morning Robin's Nest Followers! Tracy here today with an Easter Card I made entirely from scraps left over from other projects.  I save the smallest pieces of paper, especially if I really like the paper. I always tell myself that I'll make some flowers out of all my little bits and pieces. So I decided to do just that for this Easter card.

Robin's Nest Products

Other Products
Die Cuts
Creme Chalk
Embossing Powder

I started with an A2 size card and cut a piece of the Pink Roses On Green Cardstock to fit the front of the card. I decided to create a little window scene so I used my Cricut to cut out an open rectangle from some Spring Stripe Glitter Cardstock. I then took a piece of white cardstock and using some creme metallic chalk colored it to look like the sky and grass.


Next came making all the little flowers. I used some of the Rosy Diamond Cardstock (backside) and Pink Roses On Green Cardstock for the flowers. I stamped and embossed them with glitter embossing powder and then die cut them using my Cuttlebug. I glued them all together using some of the Best Glue Ever by ScraPerfect. And of course I had to add some Dew Drops to them also. I die cut the grasses and vines out of the Moss Green Glitter Cardstock and the Sky Blue Glitter Cardstock

Here's a close up of the flowers once I got them all put together and onto the card.

So, if you're like me and save even the tiniest pieces of scraps from other projects, you can easily use them to make some of the prettiest little flowers. I made a lot more than I needed for this Easter Card so now I have a nice stash of handmade flowers for other projects. 

Here's another look at the final project

What You Need To Know to Make a Fabulous Notebook Cover

Charity here from Scrappin' Chaos with exactly what you need to know to make
a fabulous notebook cover. I get tired of the primary colored spiral bound notebooks
that look JUST like everyone else's. I go through too many to buy only the fancy style.
Pretty paper and trim is how I solve any problem, so here is the answer I came up with.
~Princess Notebook Cover ~
This notebook cover fits a standard size spiral notebook. It slips on and off easily with a little fancy threading thanks to that strip of trim.
What is even more thrilling, is you can personalize it any way you desire. I used papers from The Robin's Nest store.
Stop by and see the variety they offer!
8 brads
4 eyelets
4ft of narrow trim
4 oval jump rings,
must fit through eyelets with trim attached
2 lobster claw clasps
5x9 piece of acetate, thick product packaging is ideal.
2 pieces of cardboard:8x11in
1 piece of Rosy Chevron Cardstock for binding:4x11in
2 pieces of Rosy Chevron Cardstock for inside of cover:8x11in
2 pieces of Girl Crown Glittered Cardstock for outside of cover:8x11in
1 piece of Spring Stripe Cardstock for matting:6x9
1 piece of Silver Castles Glitter Cardstock for background:6x9
1 chipboard frame:4in wide
1 Doillie Die-Cut:2.5in wide
1 crown punched from Gold Glitter Chipboard
Glue Chevron cardstock to cardboard.
Let dry while prepping front cover.
Front Cover Cut and Assembly
Step 1) Cut out center of Spring Stripe cardstock matting so that a 1.5in frame remains.
Step 2) Glue matting to Castle cardstock.
Step 3) Cut center of Crown cardstock so that a 3.5in frame remains.
Step 4) Glue Crown cardstock to matting.
1/4in of Spring Stripe matting should show
between Crown cover and Castle background.
When gluing the layers of cardstock together and to the cardboard use ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever.
It requires very little glue, does not wrinkle the paper, and holds fast.
Corner Supports
Step 1) Cut two circles from the acetate, 4in diameter.
Step 2) Cut 2in centers from circles.
Step 3) Cut circles in half.
Acetate doesn't show up well in photos so I used Sharpie to mark the edges.
To remove the unsightly smudges I used ScraPerfect's Best Cleaner Ever.
Step 4) From the outside of the cardboard cover pierce two holes that are
1.5 inches from the corner and .5in from the edge of cover.
Only pierce holes in the 2 corners furthest from the notebook spiral.
 Step 5) Insert brads to enlarge holes. Each cover will have four brads.
Step 6) Adhere Crown cardstock to outer cover, leaving a 3x11 in strip of cardstock unattached, for assembling corner supports.
This 3in strip will be along the edge furthest from the notebook spiral.
Step 7) Use a paper piercer to mark brad holes from Chevron side of cover through Crown side of cover.
Step 8) Insert brads to enlarge holes.
Step 9) Lay acetate half-circle over pierced corner holes on the Chevron side. Fold edges around
cover so they meet in the front between Crown cardstock and cardboard. Crease acetate.
Step 10) Mark holes with sharpie, remove acetate and pierce only the folded ends.
Step 11) Insert brads to enlarge holes.
Step 12) Reposition acetate on corners, line up holes.
Step 13) Add glue to 3x11in strip of cardboard and acetate, carefully circle pierced holes.
 Step 14) Smooth Crown cardstock over cardboard and acetate.
Use toothpicks to pin layers together as you straighten paper and line up holes.
Step 15) Gently press brads through Crown cardstock and acetate, into cardboard.
Fold points over on the chevron side.
Cover to Notebook Attachment
Step 1) Set eyelets on the corners nearest the notebook spiral, .5in from each edge.
There will be two eyelets per cover.
Step 2) Stitch one edge of trim around a jump ring. Attach lobster claw clasp.
Step 3) Thread the raw end of the trim as follows:
  • Through the top eyelet on the Crown side of the front cover
  • Over the top edge of the notebook front
  • Into the top hole of the notebook front
  • Run the trim down the front of the notebook
  • Back out the bottom hole of the notebook front
  • Over the bottom edge of the notebook front
  • Into the back of the second eyelet
  • Back to the Crown side of the front cover

Step 4) Determine appropriate length of trim,
Figure an extra .5in for stitching the raw edge and another .5in for ease of fastening.
Step 5) Cut trim and stitch a jump ring onto the raw end.
Step 6) Attach ends of trim using Lobster Claw Clasp.
In order to switch the Cover between notebooks the second jump ring must fit through
the eyelet with the trim attached. Choose your rings and eyelets accordingly.

 The notebook corners may catch on the brads as they are placed in the corner supports. Gently reposition them. They should be fine once the cover is attached to the notebook.The finished project won't show your fancy threading work. It will, however, hold the cover securely to the notebook.


Step 1)Center the 4x11 piece of Chevron cardstock against the holes of the notebook.
Step 2)Mark top and bottom hole on long sides of cardstock.
Step 3)Cut .25x1in slit from the long edge of cardstock towards center.
Step 4)Curve the cardstock over the spiral, between the notebook and the cover.
Step 5)Wedge the long center tab between the trim and the notebook.
Cover Embellishment
I used an oval chipboard frame, the reverse side of a die cut doily, and a punched crown. The chipboard frame is embellished with Holographic Transfer Foil using Scraperfect's glue. The crown is punched from Gold chipboard, and carefully centered on the doily. The crown, doily, and frame are all glued to the Castle background cardstock using the same glue I used for foiling. The Best Glue Ever is so versatile it can be used for all parts of this project.
Stop by my blog Scrappin' Chaos for a list of supplies.

Scrap On!

Layout Love&Fly

Hi everyone!!!

Here's Elisa, and today I want to show you this new Layout, called "Love&Fly"... Everything started with a Teal Cardstock Distressed Ocean. I choose other two cardstock: the Smoky Chevron Cardstock and the Brown Glitter Cardstock.
I decided to use as embellishment the little postcards in the Wedding Cut-Outs Cardstock... And I also decided which picture I could use. But... I was now sure about the picture size... So I create a collage with 2 sizes..... And I thought... wow, I like it? Why not using three sizes? Or four? Five was the perfect number... The same picture, five different sizes.
Looking at the little postacards, I was a butterfly on a stamp.... So I thought that the butterfly could be the second emellishment element.

But now, let me star by the beginning. Here are the three cardstock I used:

I pasted the five pictures on the dotted cardstok. Then I cut a frame around the pictures. SO I created a second frame pasted everything on the second cardstock.

The main cardstock I used is the Teal Cardstock Distressed Ocean . I splashed it with some green liquid watercolor... I also used a stencil with white texture paste on the left side, and then I watercolor that edge too. 

Then I stuck the pictures, the postcard and 2 stamps: in one stamp I put inside the "You & Me" sentiment (Wedding Cut-Outs Cardstock)

In the end I die cut some butterflies by the cardstocks I used to create the frames for the pictures. And, of course, the clear Belgian Chocolate Mini Dew Drop. I distressed all the borders...
And the Layout is finished!!!

Here are some closer pictures:

Amazing Hearts using ScraPerfect products

Hi it's Bev here today. I am sharing some projects that were done using amazing Robin's Nest Papers, some sketches, challenges and a fabulous cross promo with ScraPerfect products. They were just too beautiful not to share with you here. What a great way to celebrate February with lots of hearts, pink and flowers in the paper prints and the accents.

Supply List
Chipboards: Creative Embellishments
Flair Buttons: Creative Embellishments
Stencil: Creative Embellishments 
Ink: sew easy ink roller, Tim Holtz ranger,
Pen: Signo white gel
Other: paint, lace, flowers
Sketch: Sketches in Thyme
Challenge: Off the Rails

To start a page I lay things out without gluing anything down. 
Take note 1st to the background ... I ripped the paper on both sides and matted with soft pink cardstock behind. This is the only thing I glued down to start this layout.

Up next I inked lots of the chipboards to coordinate with the paper colouring and the frames in white.

The frames were then glued using ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever and placed on top of the photos.

Parts of the background are stamped and 3 sections are clustered with the stamping, chipboard and flair button accents. A few flowers and some lace are added. As an after thought I used the sew easy ink roller and added some ink rolled on stitches throughout the page.

Be sure to read on when I share another heart filled page.


OMG isn't this too cute? With Valentines Day in February it was fun to play with lots of hearts in many forms. This is my youngest Grand Daughter who is now 13. She was obsessed with her "blankie" and still is! LOL. It was so tattered it was an embarrassment to have her carry it around. She will have memories forever with this page. 
This page is created using papers from Robin's Nest and lots of heart accents... then throw in some inked stenciling and some splattered paint and it's done. It was glued together with ScraPerfect Best Ever Glue and the amazing non clog fine writing tip made it so much easier too. It also means using less glue which is perfect too. This is a cross promo project.

Supply List:
Creative Embellishment Products: chipboards, accents, stencil, stamp
Other: lace, ribbon, ink, paint

Starting with this 2 hearts border I painted it... let stand to dry. 
Here are some detail shots using Best Glue Ever with non clog fine tip writing tip. I can't tell you how awesome this is... I have struggled before to glue anything that was thin, delicate and had fine lines.... Now it is so easy. You really need to buy some... tell them that I sent you. Be sure to buy the glue and the writing tip too.

Notice the fine thin glue lines..... you really don't need too much so the glue goes a very long way.

This close up view showcases the Robin's Nest Products.... the great layers of print paper, the fabulous doillies all which highlight and pop the cute photos.

When creating you have lots of options to use a little or a lot... to add background mixed media or not. Also when it's all laid out pulling accents from your stash ... you'll have so many choices. I used chipboard, metal, lace and flair buttons.
In some of the close ups you can view more of the details and accents.

 Thanks for visiting.... hope to see you again soon.
