Hello there, hope you are having a great week. Today I have a video showing how to make a scrapbook layout from start to finish using supplies from the Itsy Bitsy Craft Supply store and I also have a giveaway sponsored by Itsy Bitsy.
I am more of a card maker than a scrapbooker but I really enjoyed making this one. It features pictures of my daughter when we visited the Singapore Botanical Gardens a few months back.
I started off with a 12"x12" sheet of patterned paper from Glitz design and extended the flower pattern at the edges by using stamps from my Altenew Stampset "Wild Hibiscus". I then decided upon the placement of the photos on the layout and stamped some more around it. With my background ready and photo placement decided, I started adding the embellishments, I played around with different embellishments and their placement until I was satisfied with the result. In order to brighten the layout I trimmed and mounted the black layout on a sheet of bright green 12"x12" cardstock and mounted this on a 14"x14" piece of packaging cardboard and my layout is ready. All embellishments are from Itsy Bitsy, the entire list of supplies are listed out at the bottom of this post.
Check out the entire start to finish video here...

Happy Friday Folks! Today I have another altenew card to share and this time I made a video too,
I've used Faber Castel Design Memory Craft Gelatos to color the flowers; gelatos are one of my favorite coloring mediums. The stamps I've used are from the "Wild Hibiscus" Altenew Set.
I've made a lot of paper crafting video tutorials but this is my first start to finish card video. Lots of lessons learnt, lots of room for improvement, like the voice over audio quality isn't great, my daughter says it doesn't sound like me and when I try to rotate the video it become really small in size, anyone faced this problem? But I did have fun making it and I'm not going to stop at one :)
Happy Wednesday! Hope everyone's having a great week. I usually like to try out card designs before making the final one, well this is my trial card, I loved how it turned out and decided to go with this one, the stamping isn't perfect, which I feel adds to it......
I've used "Golden Garden" and "Label Love" stamp sets from Altenew. The inks are Galaxy Gold from Memento and Coral Berry Altenew Crisp Ink.
My hubby got back from the US last Saturday with a ton of craft supplies :). I played around with a few of them......I used Zig Clean Clear Real Brush Pens to create the ombre background. The "Be-you-tiful" die is from Ellen Hutson.....absolutely love it, love its packaging too. Finished the card with some gold metallic thread and Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins (yeah I finally got those too!)
Happy Thursday everyone. I'm sharing a very quick card I made today. The doily stamps are from Maya Road which I stamped with Love Letter, Cantaloupe, Tangelo and Dandelion Memento Dye Inks. The sentiment is from the Altenew set Label Love
