“Just Be” Vintage Altered Plate with Karen Jiles

Hi there, 

It’s Karen sharing a “Just Be” Vintage Altered Plate that I created with the Exhale Word Mix and Penny Farthing Bike chipboard.  I coupled the products with a vintage plate, some expanding mousse, flowers, pins and clear gems. The products were perfect together.  Take a peek at how this project came together in the tutorial below.

Step 1: Trim patterned papers down to layering sizes and run through Xyron machine to apply adhesive to the papers. Adhere papers together and then adhere layered papers to chipboard layer.

Step 2: Sand patterned paper and chipboard edges using a sanding bar.

Step 3: Adhere “Just Be” and Bike chipboard, corrugated board and corkboard embellishments to the patterned paper layers. Note: These embellishments added some great texture and awesome details.

Step 4: Adhere quote, flowers, clear pebbles and heart pins. Set aside.

Step 5: Apply Worn Linen Expanding Mousse to the edges and random areas of the plate. Heat the expanding mouse to create bubbled texture. Using a paintbrush, tap on some gesso. Note: This plate made the perfect base for this project. The colour was perfect and extremely lightweight material.

Step 6: Using E6000, adhere the patterned paper layer to the plate and tap on some more gesso to enhance the overall design.

Step 7: Continue embellishing as desired.

I Said Yes to the Dress Layout with Gloria Lee

Hello crafty friends!
Happy Friday!!!

Gloria here today and happy to share of my project.
 I made a wedding scrapbooking layout using Say Yes to the Dress and Mini Connected Hearts chipboard die cut from Southern Ridge Trading Company Shop.

I made a 12' x 12' layout with my wedding photo.

When I saw the Say Yes to the Dress Chipboard, I decided to make a wedding page.
First, I coloured the Say yes to the Dress and Mini connected Hearts chipboard with white paint and I covered the dress, yes and hearts with Glossy accents and added glitters.

I painted a part of 12'x12' white card stock with watercolours and added some ink splatters all over the panel.

I cut some papers and adhere on the base card stock.

I stamped some flowers on a tracing paper with embossing ink, white heat embossed them and fussy cut them with my Cutter Bee scissors.  

I adhere my 15 years ago photo , the beautiful chipboards and the flowers .
The chip boards are so beautiful. 
The mini connected hearts is so adorable and perfect for wedding cards.

The hearts make cards so beautiful.
I made this card for our church member's wedding.

Explore Card with Katelyn Grosart

Hey Southern Ridge Trading Company fans, Katelyn here. Travelling has become such a big part of our lives these days, that going away for a long trip, isn't as common as it used to be. In light of those special people in your lives that are going away on a long trip, why not create a card and give one to them to celebrate the fact. To inspire you, I've created this fun Explore card. You'll want to read below as I share with you how to embellish the chipboard pieces for my Explore Card at home.

From the Create, Explore, Relax set, cut out the Explore word. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink over the entire surface of the word.

Next, you'll need the Sm. World Globe.

From the Plain Banners, you'll need three banners. I traced the banners around two pieces of patterned paper. Cut the three banners out. Adhere the paper banners to the chipboard banners and punch holes through the top of the banners. Ink the edges of the banners using Walnut Stain Distress Oxide Ink and a blending tool with foam.

The last chipboard piece you'll need the large frame from the Abstract Frame Set. Using a blending tool with foam, blend Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink over the entire surface of the frame. Apply Emboss It Ink to the frame and sprinkle Tidal Lotus embossing powder over the entire surface of the frame. Tap off the excess powder and emboss with a heat tool.

Cut three patterned paper pieces that measure 4 1/4" x 5 1/4", 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" and 4 3/4" x 5 3/4" to mount in behind of the frame. Once the frame is mounted over top of the image, adhere the banner through the top left hand hand corner of the frame. Adhere a large white rose and two coral roses above the banner.

Adhere the Explore word to the bottom portion of the frame. Adhere a coral and a mint rose to the left side of the E in the explore word. In the bottom right hand corner of the frame, adhere one large white rose, two coral roses, two mint roses and two small white roses.

Adhere the globe above the flowers. Add embellishments from the paper collection as desired. Adhere two coral roses and one mint rose above the globe.

Here are a few closeup photos of the finished card.

Here is the finished Explore Card.

Dream Scrapbook Layout with Karla Yungwirth

Hello friends! Karla here today with a bright and colourful layout using the 6x6 Navajo Stencil, the Dreamcatcher Chipboard and the medium Dream Fun Word from the Southern Ridge Trading Company Shop. I had fun embellishing the chipboard pieces with embossing powders and added even more sparkle with sparkly texture paste and the cool stencil. I love how many different pieces are available in the shop – I think you’ll find pretty much everything to match your own photos and make a personalized scrapbook layout.

I started off by stenciling Vicki Boutin’s Color Kaleidoscope Iridescent Texture Paste over the SRTC Navajo Stencil. Just by using a palette knife and roughly spreading it on I got a great texture, and I love the bits of iridescent pieces in this paste! This is the Medium sized stencil, which is 6x6” but there is also a 3x3” and a 12x12” size available!

Next, I customized the chipboard pieces with Emerald Creek Embossing Powders. By using a Ranger Emboss It Dauber I added sticky embossing ink to the chipboard and simply poured on the desired  powder. I used Northern Lights and Charred Gold on the Dream Fun Word for my layout title – I love how they mix! Then, I used colours similar to the dream catcher my daughter made in the photo to colour the Dreamcatcher Chipboard piece – Lapis Lazuli, Black Magic and Northern Lights again.  The chipboard pieces are so detailed and beautifully cut!

I am using a kit from Scrapbook & Cards Today, and I love how the stencil and chipboard pieces work so beautifully together with it! I used a sketch that came in the kit and since all the papers are already matched it came together quite quickly. I love how the sparkly heart enamel dots coordinate with the sparkle on the chipboard and the paste.

There are many Fun Word chipboard pieces available in the shop – so perfect to add as a title to a layout!! Plus, you can get several sizes so if you want to use them on a card or home d├ęcor piece you also have options. I also love stencils because of their versatility – there are so many ways to use them too!

Other Supplies Used:

- Scrapbook & Cards Today: Blue Skies Scrapbook Kit

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope seeing how I created this page gives you some ideas to use stencils and chipboard on scrapbook layouts. I hope you have an awesome week and have lots of fun creating!!
