Dreamscapes Tag Set - 7 Dots Studio Design Team

Hi dear followers, I´m back today with two tags done for the 7 Dots Studio Design Team. I made these with the new Dreamscapes Collection. I think tags if a perfect project to do using up your paper scraps. These where a result of using the scraps from the cards I showed here earlier this week. 

I complimented the paper scraps with flowers, stickers, flair and gem stones. Love how they turned our!

Hope you like them too! Thanks for stepping by!

Dreamscapes Card Set - 7 Dots Studio Design Team

Hi crafty souls! Marie here today with a card set created with the new Dreamscapes Collection from 7 Dots Studio. I made this set using the 6×6 paper pad, the tag set and embellishments from the sticker sheets. I love the soft colors in the collection. It combines perfectly with brighter elements like flowers, gem stones or mist.

I went for a soft look at for the card. I wanted to highlight the sun figure from the patterned paper so I placed a piece of chipboard as a frame. Tags with 3D squares under gives extra dimension and the combination of bold and soft yellow give extra interest.

My next card is a bit of a experiment. I love the stencil with birds on strings and wanted to use that on my card. I used black heavy gesso with it to create dimension and a bold effect that I am really satisfied with. I used the combination of tags and flowers here to, and tied it with a soft romantic ribbon,this is how it turend out.

Thank you for stepping by today!

The Grandies - Scrap FX Design Team

I´m back today with a layout made for Scrap FX Desig Team that celebrates the love of my parents, my children´s Grandparents.

They are such a great couple – and they always have time for their grandkids, no matter what their plans were originally – they just toggle the kids along! I love that kind of behaviour. They don´t let go of their plans, they let the children be a part of it. For this layout I used the Landscape frame, together with the Kangaroo Paw Stem and the Grandies Wordlet.

The cluster was built around the Landscape frame with the photo in the centre. I cut the Kangaroo Paw Stem into pieces so I could use it for display on more than one part of the layout.

I painted the chipboards with High Impact paints from Tattered Angels and distressed them with a bit of Heavy Gesso. That way they get a bit of structure. I love how that turned out.

More details:

I hope you enjoyed my layout and feel inspired to buy these products I used from the Scrap FX store:

Tranquility - 7 Dots Studio Design Team

Today I´m sharing my latest layout & tutorial for the 7 Dots Studio Design Team.

I found this photo in my phone and wanted to use it for this my May Tutorial. I love its feel – calm and tranquil – but the true story was something completely different. Minutes after this shot was taken a terrible thunder storm with severe wind and heavy rain started. The moment before this was pretty surreal – everything was quiet, no wind, no birds singing – nothing. Like all sounds and life just was gone – then the thunder came.

I tried to catch the drama of the situation with strong contrasts. The base paper from Writer´s Block has a bold print and the colours I used are vibrant. Yet there are soft flowers, smooth pebbles, flair and soft colours from Cotton Candy Dreams Papers & Embellishments involved. I really like how it turned out. And I am so in love with the Architextures Chicken Wire from 7gyspies.

And the video tutorial:
