Lovely Day - Prima Marketing

Moikka! Last but not least Creativation project! A layout using Vintage Floral collection together with some TJ products. Even though the collection is done for Traveler's Journal, it's also perfect for scrapbooking or cardmaking. More Prima TJ products here (link) and if you are keen on seeing just Vintage Floral, click here (link).

I absolutely adore this Vintage Floral collection! The paper designs are so beautiful and the color palette is awesome with the hint of mint! This page is done with one of my definite favorite papers from the collection. 

The photo in the layout is taken in Berlin, in the garden of Charlottenburg castle. The palace and the blooms seemed so appropriate for this collection. I mixed in some Traveler’s Journal products as well to embellish the page.

Thank you for your visit! Have a great day!

Cherry Blossom cards - Prima Marketing

Continuing with the Creativation projects! Yesterday it was a layout, today two cards and tomorrow I share the final layout and then they all are blogged! These cards are made using the Cherry Blossom collection (link).

As you can see, I went really minimalistic with these cards. Can you believe that I didn’t use any mediums in these? There’s just a simple faux stitch line going around the edge, nothing more. This gives the wonderful background paper a good chance to shine. I really feel I overdid myself with these in a way. Totally a different style and totally without mediums!

Thank you for stopping by today!

You are brilliant - Prima Marketing

Moikka! Be prepared for some Creativation overload! I'm finally sharing all the remaining Creativation projects one after another! That is two layouts and two cards using various collections. Sharing them feels a bit silly as there's newer collections from Prima already, but as these projects haven't been blogged yet, I think I ought to anyway.

This first layout is done using Amelia Rose. You can see the collection here (link) at Prima's site. I love how Amelia Rose is at the same time really floral and so modern! I used the modern side of the collection in this page about my older daughter. I painted a circle with gesso to draw the eye in to the photo and used the same circle theme to embellish the page as well.

Thank you for your visit today! Have a sweet Tuesday!

Altered palette - Wow Embossing Powder

Hello and happy Monday! It's again a new week. What better way to start it than share something new? This palette is first of its kind but I bet it's not the last. First you ask - first I used almost only embossing powders to color the project! 

I'm in a spring or even summer kind of mood and going for flowers and candy colors all the time. For this post I created something with flowers, yes, but the color scheme isn't the most summery of them all. I actually first thought to use white gesso instead of black... but I just love how the black really lets the metallic touches shine and shows the colors! 

Can you believe that all the colors in the palette are created with embossing powders and foil? On top of those I only used black gesso and silver wax, but all the turquoise and green shades are of embossing powders!  

I created a step by step tutorial to this piece. If you want to see the steps, please visit Wow's blog here (link)

This kind of project needs some time and patience, but the end result is quite striking, don't you think? Like I said, the black background really makes the colors and shine pop. 

Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you find this post inspiring! Ta ta for now!

Vintage Floral tag - Prima Marketing

Sweet and pleasant Sunday! Here's another Creativation project finally shared - a layered tag using Vintage Floral collection. I love the tones of that collection! The collection is actually done for Traveler's Journals and Planners, but as it has 12x12 papers, you can also use it to scrapbooking. You can see some sneaks and inspiration from this post (link) in old Prima's blog.

As the collection is done to TJ, you can easily embellish the projects using the Traveler’s Journal products. In this tag I layered some of the ephemera on top of each other and then added the cluster to a base cut from one of the Vintage Floral papers. The pale blue and mint are a perfect match to the tea colored neutrals for a fresh summer look!

Have a great start to the new week! Thank you for stopping by today!

Summer awaits - 7 Dots Studio

Hello there and sweet Saturday! I was talking yesterday about tutorials as it's crafty time weekend so what way better to continue than to share another tutorial! This one is done for 7 Dots Studio.

Are you planning on summer vacation? We haven’t decided yet where we would love to go. I guess this year the budget restricts us flying but we might take the ferry to Stockholm or train to Saint Petersburg or then just travel inside Finland. We’ve visited Stockholm several times, but that’s always nice city to visit. None of us in the family has ever been to Russia so it would be the first. And there’s also a lot to see in homeland as well. 

I made this page summer in mind while pondering what to do. In the picture I used my girls are eagerly waiting to get going – we’re heading for a ferry to take us to Tallinn. I’ve lately been drawn to combination of turquoise or blue and yellow so I used the same scheme in here and mixed different collections together. I took step pictures while working so if you want to see how I made the layout, please see the steps below! 

Step 1. I started by making the background paper layers. I cut a piece from the “Sticky Notes” sheet and cut the edge with a notebook punch. Then I tore pieces of the “Board Games” paper and adhered the little pieces as well as the notebook edged paper to “Underpaper” sheet. I added a couple of staples for a grungy look.

Step 2. More paper details! I cut the sun from the “Sunrise” sheet and some film strips from “Vignette” and adhered them to the page. Both patterns go great to a summer page, don’t you think? 

Step 3. Bring the mediums. Next I added some yellow and minty watercolor to the layers as well as some stamping using black ink. I used the star stencil two times – first with yellow ink and then with modeling paste. 

Step 4. Then I clustered some papers and added those to the page using foam dots. I also added the photo on top using the same dots. This brings a lovely dimensional look to the layout. 

Step 5. First embellishments are in. I added a flair button near the photo and some triangular chipboard shapes along the composition. 

Step 6. I finished the page with some stickers from Paint Chips collection. I also sprinkled some epoxy stickers here and there to balance the composition. 

Thank you for your visit today! Wishing you great time planning those summer adventures! And a lot of inspiration for the weekend!
