hi everyone, i have a new layout for you… it´s for the Alexandra Renke Design Team and i really love how it turned out! I played with some new patterned papers and embossing powders from WOW! i added the embossing ink with a brayer to the paper and i really love how it looks!

weekendsmiles1

You´ll find some pretty awesome new papers in the store… but i will link you to the ones i used and some of my favorites…. ‚Kranz mit Magnolien‚ i fussy cut the leaves and the pretty flowers, ‚summerfeeling orientalisch petrol‚ the paper i used on the left side and for the ornament under my picture, ‚Mandala outline‚ is the die i used…

weekendsmiles2

I heat embossed one of the foam words and i happy that it worked that good. You just need to be careful when you peel the sticker off from the sticker sheet, the embossed part will break very easily. but i went over it twice and everthing is fine again… that yarn i used under some of the flowers are also available in the AR Store, NYMOGARN!

weekendsmiles4

check out the WOW! store here and you´ll find all of the pretty stuff above… i also used some Magical powder on my background, called ‚salt water taffy

i also have a process video for you, ready to watch, on my youtube channel
thank you SO much for stopping by today

I used some of the design papers for fussy cutting and one of the patterned papers for the middle piece on my layout… i just ripped it and curled up the edges, i really love the texture/dimension and the look of it.

The word ‚hallo‚ is a new die from Alexandra Renke and i heat embossed it with a bright pink powder from WOW! I also used some other Renke dies (1 & 2) for more embellishments under and the birds/leaves…

Hi everyone, i am back again and I have a new layout for. For this page I used the Flower Wreath Cut File and some bits from the new Horizon and the Whimsical Collection.

I started with making the cut file smaller and cut the Flower Wreath on white Cardstock. I backed the open flowers with Paper No.09 from the Horizon Collection and the leaves with Paper No.01 and 05 from the Whimsical Collection.  I wanted to add some mixed media to my Background and I started with a stencil and my favorite Texture paste. Once that was dry I grabbed some Magical Powders for some pretty colors. I decided to go with pink and a tiny touch of mint.

adventure-jana-1

The background turned out great and I placed the finished Flower Wreath on top of it. I grabbed the Flower Embellishment Pack from the Whimsical Collection to add some more. I also had a look into the Mixed Floral Embellishments from the Horizon Collection. I placed three more flowers on top of the Wreath; I really like how this is looking. The picture shows the dogs from my best friend and they are the cutest. I used a Paper from the 6×6 Paper Pad and some tissue Paper behind the photo.

adventure-jana-2

I fussy cut some matching words from Horizon Paper No.04 for my title. I also mixed a Chipboard Sticker word from the Whimsical Collection to it. The final touches were some chipboard Hearts and some Stickers. I placed everything near the picture and I am totally in love with this project

adventure-jana-3

I really hope you´re inspired to use a Flower Wreath Cut File very soon. I had so much fun and please, be sure to check out Paige´s cut files for ideas and inspirations. I always get ideas and I always find a perfect cut file for my next project! Thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you all a great day

hi everyone, i have some fun new stuff to share. Alexandra Renke started something new and some of the Design Team will be joining this group of aRenke Plus! Basically it´s about product co-parations with other manufacturers.
This month… WOW Embossing Powders!

arwow1

I created this first tag with a new Tag Die (‚Etiketten 2‚)from Alexandra Renke, some awesome blender Brushes, Distress Oxide, a BIG clearstamp and three different Embossing powders. Metalline Flame, Opaque Bright White and Vintage Amethyst.

I stamped the big Mandala stamp on the tag and heat embossed it with the white powder. Then i grabbed the blender brushes and worked my way over the tag with the peacock feathers distress oxide… I used the Mandala Die two times. i placed one cut on top of the embossed image and filled some of the open spots. I decided to go with orange. I embossed each of the little pieces three times. i really love how this is looking.

arwow2

The word ‚danke‘ is brandnew and will hit the store very soon! I finished this tag with some more splatters, thread and the white banner with the word ‚Danke‘
I am totall in love with the colors and the powders!

The second Tag is nearly the same, i just used some other colors…

Love Being with you | Paige Evans

Hi everyone, i have a new layout for you… i used the Cut and Fold Stars Background cut file from Paige Evans

lovebeingwithyou-jana1

I cut the Cut and Fold Stars Background on a patterned paper from the 12×12 Paper Pad and placed it pattern side down on the aqua ombre Paper 21 from the Take Me Away collection. Now when I open the stars and fold them over, the design is visible! I stitched all of the stars down with my sewing machine. I added a lot of white gesso to the background because I wanted to add mixed media. I grabbed some of my favorite Shimmerz Paints and had fun.

lovebeingwithyou-jana2

The background was very busy already but I still wanted to add more elements. I fussy cut words from Paper 18, grabbed some Chipboard Stickers and Floral Die Cuts, then started to place everything around the photo. My photo was placed on cut-apart pieces from Paper 01 and I tried to use only green and blue tones. A few clouds and hearts from the Sticker Book were added to the stitched stars. The Tassel Paper Clip and Enamel Shapes were my final touches on this layout. I really love how this one turned out!

lovebeingwithyou-jana3

Be sure to check out Paige’s cut files for ideas and inspirations. I always get ideas and I always find a perfect cut file for my next project! Thanks so much for stopping by and I wish you all a great day!

happy spring | alexandra renke

[werbung]

hi everyone, i have a new layout to share! i used some pretty Alexandra Renke things for this project and i really love how it turned out. The patterned papers from AR are perfect for fussy cutting, but that is nothing new to you, right?

happyspring1-jana

I started here with fussy cutting some purple leaves and the cute little fawns… i also punched some scalloped boarders from different papers (1, 2, 3 and 4) and added wonky tissue paper ones, too. I wanted to layer a lot of things on this page… and i did!

happyspring2-jana

The paper with the little hearts is so cute and perfect for little details. the word happy, above the word spring, is from a ‚happy easter typo‘ Die and it looks perfect there… the tiny word stickers are all from Tim Holtz and guess what i used for the pretty background?! Yes, you´re right… magical powder from Lindy´s!

happyspring3-jana

The word ’spring‘ comes from a big alpha set from American Crafts and it brings the colors from the fawns again and i love how it looks on top of the scallop boarders. i stitched everything together and i did not cut off the thread ends. I love the extra texture!

weekends together | paige evans

[werbung]

Hi everyone, i am back again and I have a new layout for. For this page I used Paige´s Unicorn Cut File and her Whimsical Collection.

I cut the Unicorn from white Cardstock and backed the open spots with patterned Papers No.03, 08, 11 and No.17 from the Whimsical Collection and patterned Paper No.04 and No.11 from Pick me Up. I also wanted to have the same colors on my background paper; I used some Shimmerz Paints and some watercolors for it. I started with the light pink and ended up in the turquoise. I really love how the Unicorn looks on top of it.

weekendstogether-jana1

I used 3D squares for the Cut File to raise it up and to create some shadow and dimensions. The pictures I am scrapping here are four small ones from me and my little one. They are colored and in black and white. I fussy cut some matching embellishments from different patterned papers from the Whimsical Collection. Flowers from paper No.14, Butterflies from Paper No.21 and some random words from paper No.18

weekendstogether-jana2

I tried to use the same colored elements like the hair and the mixed media in the background. This turned out great and I can´t tell you how much I love to use this color on color technique! Some flowers from the Floral Die Cuts were also added to the mix of pretty stuff. I scattered some fussy cut butterflies around the Unicorn and the flowers. There were room for more things and so I grabbed some of the Chipboard Stickers, flowers and hearts from the Sticker Book and Puffy Stickers.

weekendstogether-jana3

I really hope this inspires you to create a magical project soon.
