49 and Market ARToptions Viken Album!

Hello friends! Karla here today with a look at the completed album we started to put together in the weekly Facebook Live  last week. You can check out the Facebook Live Replay below as well as a completed flip through on YouTube at the bottom! You'll find the 49 and Market Quad Folio, Waterfall Set and ARToptions Viken Collection in the Scrap Shotz Store, along with the Spellbinders Tufted 3D embossing folder and Tonic Pearlescent Cardstock. I also used Lavinia, A Colorful Life and Tim Holtz Stencils, Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide Ink, Midnight Snack Lunar Paste and the Limited Edition Tim Holtz Mica Stains!

Here is a look at the Facebook Live Replay where we put together the Waterfall Pages and some of the Album! 

I used Rub-ons to create dimensional elements by adding them to white cardstock and fussy cutting, as well as cutting out the cut-apart sheet included in the 6x8 paper pack.

The Rub-ons look beautiful added directly to the spine, with a chipboard label.

I added the Mica Stain Sprays by both spraying through the stencils and then turning them over for a negative effect. They are so shiny!

As you open the Quad Folio you'll find areas to embellish, perfect to add the Waterfall pages.

We put the waterfall set together in the Facebook Live, so be sure to check that out! The Spellbinders Tufted 3D folder and Tonic Pearlescent Cardstock looks like a quilted effect on the edges of the album!

There are magnets included in the Waterfall set so the top flap stays closed. 

I added layers of Rub-ons, paper and chipboard and then added chipboard and Rub-on sentiments throughout the waterfall pages. I used Midnight Snack Lunar Paste with a sponge through a stencil on the flaps.

I sponged the edges of the 6x8 paper with Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide Ink.

There are 3 waterfall sets included in the pack - two small and one large. 

The large waterfall fits the whole page and fits larger photos perfectly!

I used some elements from the cut apart page included in the 6x8 paper pack and added a Rub-on sentiment directly onto the page.

On the back I added some stenciling with the Tim Holtz focus stencil and the Mica Stain Spray. There is a magnetic closure that keeps the album flap closed.

And here's a look at the full flip through on YouTube

Happy Crafting Friends! Be sure to stop by and hang out again this Thursday on the Scrap Shotz Facebook Page for another Live Demo at 1 pm MST!

Splendid Collection Calendar Gift!

Good morning Scrap Shotz friends!! It's Karla here today with a look at the beautiful calendar gift we made in last week's Facebook Live using the gorgeous Splendid Collection and the sweet Mini Taylored Expressions calendars Set! If you got the beautiful May Kit Club featuring the Paige Evan's Splendid Collection you'll be able to use products from the kit! And you can also find them in the Scrap Shotz Store! This will look beautiful in your own house as a piece of home decor! And since you get 10 Mini Taylored Expressions calendars in the set, you'll be able to make lots for lovely gift sets for your friends, family, teachers and more!

Here's a look at January through June, embellished with stickers from the Sticker Book and 6x12 Accent Sticker Sheet. I kept the finished piece flat, but if you were adding it to a shadowbox frame or a frame without the glass you could add several layers of dimension!

This is July through December. I pulled out some of my older Vicki Boutin Sticker Sheets from the Color Study Collection as well. Any small phrase and sentiment stickers work great for this type of project!

There are so many ways you can display these calendars - choose any 4x6" frame, give them with photos for each month, put them in a travellers notebook, on a scrapbook page or in a pocket page - before or after you've displayed each month! And the embellishment ideas are endless!

Watch the Video on Facebook where you can see just how these calendar cards came together! Plus you get to see some new goodies close up!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out the Scrap Shotz Facebook page this Thursday at 1pm mst for a Live Demo by the beautiful Rosie! 

Have a happy, crafty summer!!
