Wonderful hearts makes for a fun and special layout

Colleen here sharing my love for using hearts all over my page.

Supplies used:
Dinosaur Cardstock (backside)
Pink Coral  (backside)

This was such a fast and easy page to create.  I used my sizzix die and cut out hearts with the above mentioned papers.  I used a black and white photo to make it stand out on the page and then just glued the hearts down.  My little grandson just loves the water and even though this water was freezing cold he couldn't wait to get in.

Thank you for looking and I hope you come back again real soon.  Don't forget to check out all the wonderful products at The Robin's Nest store.

The Robins Nest Lights Mixed Media Scrapbook Page

                                                                                      Hi all

I have a new tutorial showing you how to create the Lights Mixed Media Scrapbook Page, using The Robin's Nest products

The Robins Nest Lights Mixed Media Scrapbook Page 1

Products used

Wedding Cut outs Card Stock

First using a couple of stencils apply White and Black Gesso onto the page at random and let dry.

Add Red Metallic Lustre around the edges and rub over it to blend. 
Flick ink over the page.

Cut up the card stock into rectangles and strips. Layer the larger rectangles at the bottom and keep adding layers until you are happy with their position and glue to page.

Use a few texture stamps to stamp around the edge of the page. It doesn't need to look neat.

Add more stamping around the page and over the layers

Decorate the page with shells and flowers. Add a title with alpha stickers

Thank you for visiting

Hugging a tree layout

Hi! When I saw for the first time the Pinetrees Glitter Cardstock I thought about the Sequoias I saw during my Honey Moon and so I decided to create a layout with this amazing picture where I was hugging a tree!

Ciao! Quando ho visto per la prima volta la carta Pinetrees Glitter Cardstock ho pensato alle sequoie che ho visto durante la nostra luna di miele e ho deciso di creare un layout con questa simpatica foto dove stavo abbracciandone una.

I used these three cardstock 30 x 30 for my project:
Pinetrees Glitter Cardstock

Sono partita utilizzando questi tre fogli 30 x 30:

I've cutted four 1/4 stripes by ne of the cardstock and I've stuck them on the edges of Black Daisy Glitter Stripe.

Ho tagliato delle strisce da 1/4 dal retro di una delle carte e le ho incollate lungo i bordi della Black Daisy Glitter Stripe.

I've cut and stuck two smaller rectangles:

Ho ritagliato ed incollato due rettangoli dalle altre due carte:

Then I've stuck my picture (before I glued it to a rectangle cutted byBoy Star Glitter Cardstock). I've stuck the "Journaling", a beautiful text about trees, taken by the Leafy Green Cards, and under it you can see a Doillie Die Cut. I cutted 5 wind stars by the Boy Star Glitter Cardstock and I glued them near the pictures to give more light to the project.

Infine ho incollato la mia foto (che ho precedentemente incollato su un rettangolo della Boy Star Glitter Cardstock). Ho incollato anche la parte "journaling", un bellissimo testo sugli alberi, preso dalla serie Leafy Green Cards, sotto il quale potete vedere una Doillie Die Cut.  Per dare più luce ed interesse alla foto ho ritagliato cinque rose dei venti dalla Boy Star Glitter Cardstock e le ho posizionate intorno alla foto. 

Then I've stuck also some Mini Dew Drops

Infine ho incollato delle Mini Dew Drops

Here you can see some closer picture:

Ed ecco qualche particolare del layout:

Here is the supply list by The Robin's Nest that I used for this layout:

Amazing things Blue and so much more

Bev here today and I am sharing amazing things Blue and so much more. It's a great mix of cards in shades of blue. These are just a few amazing paper lines from the Robin's Nest collections. For this card I am making a smaller version of a shadow box.
And for an added bonus today be sure to check out the extra cross promo project with ScraPerfect.

Supply List:
The Robin's Nest Products
Other: ribbon, card base

1. I cut the circular back base piece the same size as the front piece.
2. On the front piece however I cut and added a cardstock base piece for layered look and to have a colour change between layers.

3. I used a roll of strip foam and placed the strips on the backside of the upper front section.

4. I went with another paper lay in the stripes to add more colour.
5. Glue down the shadow box circular piece on the base. 
6. Now glue down the front foamed pop up piece centred over the circular piece.
7. I made the sentiment and matted it for more colour and layers.

8. For more colour contrast I added yet another shade of blue accent using ribbon on the left side.


The next card was very easy but was accented by using matted white border with added ribbon. 

Supply List
Robin's Nest Products
Accents: Dew Drops
Other: cardstock, ribbon

1. On a card base cut the 2 papers into 1/3 vs 2/3 and glue down
2. Matt the white cardstock with navy cardstock and  tie the ribbon with bow around it.
3. Glue down the border down over the seam of the 2 other papers.
4. Make your sentiment and matt it.
5. Apply the sentiment to lower edge of border stripe.
6. In the top upper section add some dew drop accents


This next card was lighter shades of blue.. but one of my favourites too. 

Supply List
Robin's Nest Products
Other:  stamp, ink, Gina's Doily, cardstock, cardstock base

1. Cut your print background
2. Add cardstock thin strips
3. Form your cluster of doily, straw and die cut accent
4. Stamp  your sentiment, trim, matt it and apply.
5. Glue this to the cardstock base and your done.




Sometime simple is elegant too... hope you enjoyed seeing all these fun cards using shades of blue from the Robin's Nest collections.


HI glad your still following along as now I have a great surprise for you.  I'd like to share my ScraPerfect blog post that was a cross promo with Robin's Nest.
Hope you enjoy the products from both companies.

ScraPerfect has the perfect Best Glue Ever, Best Cleaner Ever and Embellie Gellie along with many more fabulous products. I am also using Robin's Nest dew drops from the cross promo with them. Be sure to check out the stores for more amazing products that are perfect for every scrapper or crafters OR even just household fix it jobs and clean ups.
Today I am featuring the use of Embellie Gellie and applying small accents to the project... this is all made so easy when using Embellie Gellie.

Starting with Creative Embellishments chipboards I inked them white. On the base piece I then added Nuvo glitter paste for sparkle.

The top section is then glued on using Best Glue ever using the fine clog free applicator making covering the small areas much easier with the fine tip applicator.

Now taking the stick that comes with Embellie Gellie I add a small bit of gellie to the tip end. It will grab on to small things, hold on to them while you add glue and then make applying them so much easier allowing you to place them down where you want them with ease and releasing them.

As you can see placement was challenged with the size of the space the Robin's Nest dew drops of many sizes were going into. The ScraPerfect small fine tip non clog writing tip is the slickest thing for small amounts of glue application.

Here is the finished projects and it was so much easier with all the ScraPerfect products. Embellie Gellie, Best Ever Glue and then when done the clean up with Best Ever Cleaner on anything sticky was a perfect finish.





Thanks for stopping by.
