Friday Layouts- Featuring Media Techniques

Hello scrappy friends. Welcome to the Scrapbook Blessing Club Blog. My name is Barbara and I am going to share a layout with you where I used several different mists, sprays, distress stain, and punches.
My Tip for the day is: To make a tag out of any kind of paper, first cut the paper to the size you want. Here I used 3 inches by 2 inches. Then snip of the corner from one top side. Then take the paper you snipped off and use it as a template to snip off the other corner. Turn the snipped piece of paper wrong side up and place it at the opposite corner and snip that corner. Your tag will be symmetrical.

This is the Layout I made for you today.
When my daughter was young she loved everything about the great outdoors except dirt! LOL

These are the supplies I used to make this project:
gold 12x12, pink 11x11, and white 10x10 cardstock
gold foiled circle paper 6x6 inches
pink polka dot paper 4 x 6 inches
4 white paper flowers
Distress Stain in lipstick
Dylusions mist in lemon zest
Martha Stewart punches:
Butterfly border
small circle border
Fiskers punch:
large circle border
Heidi Swapp gold mist
Mountain Rose alcohol ink
Clear Scraps tag, embossed
shaped brads
premade butterfly
gold trim
tiny paint brush
Tattered Angels rose mist

First layer your cardstock like this:
notice I cut the center out of the layer of pink cardstock for two reasons, one, so I could use what I cut out of the middle and two, so the LO would not be so thick.
Then I misted the white 10x10 piece of cardstock with rose mist and gold mist, let it dry and attach it like this:
Then I took the gold circle foiled paper and colored it with the lipstick color Distress stain. Color a small part at a time and then quickly wipe with a paper towel to make sure the gold foil part does not get colored. It only takes a couple of minutes for it to dry. Then punch one edge with the large circle border punch and attach to the cardstock base as shown below.
Next, punch out the butterfly border from some muted pattern in yellow or gold. Attach below the gold foil piece as shown below.
Next attach the pink polka dot paper to the top left hand side of the white cardstock after you punch the edges with the small circle border punch. Then trim your photos and mats. The pink mat is 4x5.5 inches for the photo which is 3.5x5 inches. The gold mat is 3.5 x 4 inches for the photo which is 3x3.5 inches. Place the photos on their mats. Place the larger photo near the bottom of the gold circle paper and place the smaller photo above it. The smaller photo will overlap the pink polka dot paper slightly.

I added the Clear Scraps embossed tag to the top right had side of the LO with a brad, but first I used a tiny paintbrush and the Mountain Rose alcohol ink to paint a little ink inside the recessed areas of the embossing to add some dimension. Then journal on the tag you made. and add embellishments to your taste. I hope you found some ideas you can use for your next LO or card. Here is a photo of the completed LO again.
I used the lipstick distress stain and the Dylusions lemon zest mist to color the white flowers. I then layered the flowers and added the bug shaped brads because I thought even though they were not exactly perfect colors that they went well with the theme of the LO.

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
