Live for Today! 49 and Market Sand Sea Collection

Hello 49 and Market fans!! Shona here today with 2 large tags created with the Sand and Sea Collection pieces. It is winter here and I am ready for some sun and beach…so this collection was fun to play with!

I used “This Way” and “Coral Reef” sheets on these tags…soft pastel colors for that beach feel! I layered the papers and added more layers under the clusters.  

I am loving the Jute Cording and Burlap Net Ribbon from 49 and Market…they add the perfect touches for these tags.  

The yummy blooms are Garden Seeds and Seaside Blooms…I used both Sea Breeze and Sandcastle colors.

I tucked in pieces from the Collection 3D Embellishments and did a big of dry brushing with gesso to make everything blend together.  

One last close up…look at those gorgeous 3D Embellishments! FUN!!!

That is it for me today…Pop on by our Facebook page for lots of inspiration! Take care and Happy Scrapping!

Holiday Tags - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone! Shona here today sharing a couple of big holiday tags I created. I figured I would share even though the holidays are over...this is when everyone is scrapping their Holiday photos and Creative Embellishments has so many Holiday and Winter chippys!! I started with my fav chippy Large Tags.

I used the Grunge Snowflake stamp on the background. The chippys are finished with a coat of gesso and some diamond glitter. I love the Jumping Deer chippys and they are perfect on these large tags.

I used an variety of snowflake chippys and titles from the Merry Christmas Title Set. The snowflake flourish on the cluster is a piece from the Snowflake Corner Set.

That is it for me for today! Don’t forget to check out the January challenge, post your entries on our Facebook page …. Take care and Happy Scrapping!

Fabulous! January Limited Edition Kit My Creative Scrapbook

Hi everyone! Today I am going to show you how I altered or finished the large chippy frame in the January Limited Edition kit at My Creative Scrapbook 

Step 1
First thing is to cover the chipboard frame with a generous coat of gesso.

Step 2
Before the gesso was dry, I covered the entire piece with some embossing powder. You can use any embossing powder or if you do not have any, try some glitter. Heat set the embossing powder to set.  

Step 3To finish it off I went around the outside and inside edges with some distress ink. I love the vintage look from the ink.

Here is a close up of the finished piece on the layout!!

That is it for me today. Make sure to check out all the gorgeous January kits available this month!! Take care and Happy New Year!
