This is my favourite part of November’s ‚Cuppa’ gallery – projects created with ‚Gingerbread’ and ‚Peppermint’ add-ons! Remember that you can also enrich your christmassy supplies with ‚Cinnamon’ card add-on which has amazing stamps and other goodies! OK – let’s start. Oh, and don;t forget about ‚Holiday PL Cards’ – they are also fantastic.
Do you believe in Grinch? Well – I have one at home 🙂 I used these amazing Kal Barteski stamps from the ‚Peppermint’ add-on and a LOT of gold glitter 🙂 I love everything about this project, hopr you feel inspired.
The second project in christmassy mood. A little bit of Project Life inspirations, some vintage elements (becasue of the base paper). Not very typical palette but I think everything works great here 🙂 This time I add some silver glitter accents here and there.
It’s time to finish the November gallery – this is something totally crazy in composition and in colour. This layout was inspired by this amazing digonal paper from the Main ‚Cuppa’ Scrapbook kit! All the colours are coming from this funny photo of my brilliant son who made a silly ‚paper boy’ from the cardboard box 🙂 Hope you enjoy – specially the watercolour part of this project.
Let me introduce you to the November Studio Calico ‚Cuppa’ gallery! We will start with some autumn layouts.
The first one ‚Hello Handsome’ is made only with the ‚Cuppa’ Scrapbook Main kit. I think it was the easiest [MKO] project ever since these eleven months. The colours match together perfectly in an autumn mood, this month’s printables are just stunning (thank you girls!!!) and I had a remarkable picture full of fall which was the best for this project. I combined a simple, popular composition but there are some special embellishments: printable deer and self-stitched ‚+’ marks. I hope you enjoy the November palette.
‚Home is where you are…’ – this is all about the colours – green of grass, gray-blue coming from sky… I hope you will like it.
Autumn mood is everywhere here! so yellow… beautiful paper! lovely Helllo Forever stickers, other embellishments. I can’t add nothing more.
Now some projects which are full of amazing memories from Madrid!!! I met there a lot of fantastic, good people with beautiful hearts and minds full of lovely thoughts!
These are the links to the rest of the kits I used to create these projects:
Main kits and add-on kits are available for purchase at 12:00 am EST on 10/28/2013.
Remember, the links to purchase the Scrapbook, Card, or Project Life kits will not work until this time.
Please remember about PRINTABLES and other DIGITAL ELEMENTS for this month – they are remarkable as always!!! Thank you ‚Hello Forever‚ and ‚In a creative bubble‚ for these designs!!!
This is my second Studio Calico page inspired by mixing letterpress and watercolour techniques – I love that! It can’t be nothing more interesting than explore new possibilities in mix and match – techniques and colours! Any questions? I don’t think so… it’s a pure joy to work with such amazingly beautiful designs from Studio Calico…
So sorry for the photo, but my camera is broken and I used my friend’s Canon which is totally different than mine I will replace this picture when I will buy the new one. Let’s back to the point – Letterpress – once again. My main inspiration in this project was a costellation design: first one on the ‚Atlantic’ pattern paper and the second – on the letterpress plate. I mixed some pink, blue and navy letterpress inks, created this constellation pattern and next I added some watercolours.
All these colours are coming from the picture. The thickers are also from Studio Calico – That-A-Way and Printshop lines.
I hope you like my latest collection with mixing letterpress and watercolour techiniques 🙂 I really enjoy the work with both of them. I wish you lovely evening!
No? Well… maybe tomorrow we will be able to start the weekend 🙂 Now I would like to show you my latest project made with Studio Calico lines and my favourite Letterpress elements. This time I took one of my best friend’s photo. This is my sweet little ‚brother’ Damian. I was inspired by his great personality and lovely green shade of his jacket.
Start from the Letterpress. What you will need to create such effect on your project: die cutting machine like Big Shot or Cuttlebug, Letterpress Bundle: (Letterpress platform, Ink base, Ink Guide Strips, Cleaning Cloths, 3” Brayer, Printing Plate Adhesive, Paper Placement Guides). Letterpress Plate ‚Triangles‚, set of letterpress plates ‚Magic‚, you can cut the ‚YES’ shape using scissors or you can buy these amazing ‚Hello’ craft-die. To create this effect about I used three different colours of letterpress inks: Dark Green, Teal Blue and Yellow.
The supplies I used are coming from the LATEST Studio Calico LINES. You can noticed that I also used some samples from amazing ‚Printshop‚ collection – I have some good news for you which I shared on my Facebook page two days ago, that ‚Prinshop‚ collection is now available in Studio Calico shop!
Soon I will share my second layout with letterpress technique. I just adore this technique since my artistic studiest and I am so happy that it’s finally familiar with scrapbooking world, available for everybody. Since we are still waiting for new designs of letterpress plates, I have to present you the latest ‚Spirit’ plate design by one of my favourite designers – Kal Barteski. You have to order it as soon as possible! I can’t wait till my will arrive.
I would like to introduce you to the new Autumn 2o13 issue of Somerset Memories magazine where you can find some of my older layouts and a few words about them.
These are few close-ups of those projects…
And some words borrowed from Stampington & Co. page:
Autumn will soon be in the air and this issue of Somerset Memories will warm your heart and ignite your muse as you sit by the fire and delight in the wonderful scrapbook layouts and memory art filling these pages. The popularity of Instagram is front and center in a darling, palm-sized mini book by artist Emmanuelle Chauvin, along with a beautiful and colorful journal by the talented Mou Saha. Artist Connie Freedman will inspire you with an enchanting, handsome canvas made in honor of her grandfather, and author/artist Melody Nuñez shares her collection of short stories in “Altered Existence” along with the cabinet cards that inspired her novella.
I encourage you to read this amazing article/tutorial by our dear friend Emmanuelle about watercolour techique in mini albums :* Have a lovely, sunny day!
