Layouts, Photography and other Random Updates

Good Morning Ladies :) Today I have quiet a bit to share (CAUTION: lots of images = long post) ;)

First off I want to post a layout I did for BlueMoonScrapbooking! I’m loving the soft colors of the Webster’s Pages Paper in combination with the SC Stars and some Prima flowers! And of course the date stamp by Dear Lizzy!! Little secret… I hate that both date stamps (Dear Lizzy and Smash) have the little images on the side! They always smudge and I’m a little perfectionist when it comes to these things. So what I did to get rid of it… I just got RID of it ;) I used my exacter knife and just cut off that one part of the stamps and now I simply got a nice date stamp!

Next is a mini album page for Crate Paper! I really love this project that I’m working on right now (the Summer 2012 Mini Album) It’s fun to add page after page! And YES, I haven’t punched the holes yet, but I will. Probably 3 on the left side and use some Book RIngs to hold it all together :)

By the way, you can enter to win a box filled with YELLOW goodies over at Crate :) Go and give it a shot :)

Next on the Menu is a Wedding I wanted to share with you! On Saturday a week ago I was able to go shoot a Wedding with the ever so talented Jihan Cerda! It was GREAT to work with her as well as learning from a seasoned pro :) I’m so grateful there are photographers out there, that help out than putting you down :D

If you like you are welcome to check out the entire Wedding on my other blog :) (and I’d love to hear what you think about it :) )

Lastly I would like to talk a little about Design Teams ;) For starters, American Crafts is assembling a new team for 2012/2013!! I gave it a shot last year (without really thinking they would actually take me….) and I had an amazing year with them!! It’s worth it – give it a shot!

And to finish this post off I’d like to give you a little sneak of what’s coming tomorrow….. I will be posting a DT Call for the next term of SGD DT Girls :D Yes, this term is almost over and I will be looking for a few new talented ladies that would love to play with my stamps in the upcoming months :D

One last thing – there are two packs left from the fleamarket. If you are interested here’s the link :)

Well, until then…. Happy Scrappin’ :D

May 19th

Confession: I am MADLY IN LOVE with SC wood veneer shapes. Seriously, I can’t use them enough these days ;) To mix things up a tad, I decided to try to beglitter the shapes of cute little cameras for this page ;) LOVE the effect ;) I just used the same glue/water ratio I use for my splatters, painted the cameras with a brush, glitter on top and done!

By the way, this was a BlueMoon Page :D

Have a very happy day today :D

A Crate Paper Tutorial

Hello Friends! It has been a while since I created an actual photo tutorial, huh ;) Well, today I got one to share with you. In fact, I have to direct you over to the Crate Paper Blog for you to see what I’ve tutorialized ;) (I know, the word is totally made up ;) )

Here’s a little tiny sneak ;)

Now, throughout the summer you will see more of this project of mine. It’s a mini album all about Summer 2012 and I am planning on adding pages every once in a while :) I’m for sure super excited about capturing our favorite memories that way :D

The size is 8×6″

Here the first 3 pages…

Above: The Title Page. I want to keep them similar by using a handful of colors and techniques. My colors are: Yellow, Aqua, Pink, Peach and White. The techniques: Title Cut-Outs (with Silhuette), Glitter Splatters, Boarders, Sewing and Washi Tape

Below: In the Tutorial you can see how I created the background for the CA State Cut Out ;)

Below: Here I created a glitter boarder on the bottom of the page. Simply use your brush with watered down glue to ‘paint’ the boarder and then add the glitter and let dry :) Simple as 1 2 3 :D

Hope you’re enjoying the tutorial :D

And now I’d love to hear from you: Are you capturing your summer months as well and how?? :)

xoxo, Rahel

Elle’s Studio Layout

I always love to work with Elle’s Studio Tags. They are pretty and versatile and just simply fun and easy to use :)

I love to layer a bunch of the bigger cards on top of each other and use them for hidden journaling spots behind my images.

And then the banners… I LOVE the banners! This time around I cut out 3 in bright and happy colors and added a few banners I made out of a doily. Line them all up, hot glue them on and add a piece of baker’s twine on top of everything (and hot glue that on as well) :D

If you want more inspiration, you should check out the DT Gallery HERE :D Lots of beautiful projects to see :D

Crate Paper Projects

Hope you all had a great weekend and all US ladies a great Memorial Day?

I wanted to drop in real quick to share two projects I made for Crate Paper with their brand new Baby Lines! Really, these two new lines are SO cute and you don’t need to have a baby to be using the beautiful, so typically CP paper ;) (even though you will see, I did my projects about babies ;) )

Above: I usually don’t work too much with circles, but for this layout I wanted to challenge myself to do just that. It’s always fun to go outside your comfort zone – every once in a while ;)

Below: Remember Edith and Chris’ Photo Shoot? They got their suuuper cute baby Girl Mia and I just had to craft a little Welcome card for her/them :D The new line also comes with those pretty little wood shapes – you really need to check out the lines if you haven’t already ;)

Happy Tuesday :D

xoxo, Rahel
