Spooky Halloween Tea Light Holder with Deonna Riegler

Hello all my scrappy friends,
This project is for Spooky Halloween.

I used the Halloween border and cut in half at the cat.

I then hinged them together with a piece of card stock.

 I used black mist to cover the entire piece and dried with a heat gun.

I the applied several layer of colours and glitter to highlight the cutouts. 

I cut a triangle piece of chipboard to make the piece stand to make a spooky tea light holder.

The short video is the piece lit up with a tea light in the spooky darkness!

Family Scrapbook Layout with Laura Gilhuly

Good morning!
The gorgeous chipboard from Southern Ridge trading company and the fabulous kit from Scrapshotz go great together!

I started by layering the fabulous Pink Paislee papers and chose the wonderful colour scheme to carry on to the awesome Southern ridge chipboard!

 I embossed the eye catching flourish in black then added some teal liquid pearls to accent the swoops!

It looks awesome against the grey and teal papers from Pink Pailsee

I added some flowers from my stash! 

I embossed the family title in black too!

Fall Mini Album with Karla Yungwirth

Hello friends! Karla back today to share a Fall mini album using a brand new Chipboard Mini Album that will be in the Southern Ridge Shop soon! 

Last October our family went to Fish Creek Park in Calgary, Alberta to get family photos done. It was such a lovely fall day we decided to take advantage of the weather and the autumn colours and get some of our own pictures too! This album was perfect to document our day and scrapbook those pics!

The album has 6 thick chipboard pages with two holes in each one to add rings or string through. 

I found an older Simple Stories collection- Pumpkin Spice, in my stash and it was perfect to add to the album along with some Recollections fall papers. 

I even added a few flaps using some of the journaling cards in the cut apart sheet. 

I glued on the patterned paper with tacky glue by first tracing around each chipboard page, cutting out the shape and punching holes to match the album. Once I had glued it down I used a craft knife to trim off any extra paper. 

I used both the SRTC Soda Fizz and the Multi Gear Stencil to add Distress Oxide Ink details with a sponge tool on top of the patterned papers. 

I love how sturdy these pages are! I used two metal rings in my stash to connect all the pages together. 

Each page of the album gradually gets larger so you get a cool effect when you see it from the front. There’s lots of space to add fun photos and embellishments. 

Those stencilled details add a fun and cohesive look throughout the album. 

I added some of the wood veneer gears to various areas of the album - on the cover (above) I even turned one into a flower! Don’t be afraid to look at any shapes in your stash and see what different ways you can use them. 

I love the diecut border edges - they add so much interest!

I even decorated the back cover. This was such a fun project to do!
