Hello dear friends!
Have you seen anything as beautiful as the digi kit that Lydell Quin and Emma Stafrace have designed to celebrate the 75h palette of The Color Room?! such incredibly talented ladies and what amazing layouts the DT have come up with using the digi kit!! This is a HUGE release!
You do not have to be a digital scrapbooker to enjoy a digital kit. You can print off the elements either on paper (the white backs of paper you know you will never use are a great option to cut down and print your elements onto as it is a heavier weight than just a piece of copier paper) or on transparency and then use them in the way you would use any physical product you would buy.
So we have a special printable giveaway for Members this week, and the option to purchase this fun kit that the DT used to create their works of Art for just $6.00......Remember you don't need to use this kit digitally if you are not a digital scrapper. You can place any element on an A4 or 8.5 x 11 sheet in your editing software, and print it out and cut it out as you would an element in your printed paper. You can print on Paper or printable transparency.
Proceeds from this kit will go towards the running of the site. We ask that you donate $6.00 to TCR by using the 'DONATE' button then email me and Lydell will send you the link to download the kit...........email@example.com
Here are the A4 sized sheets. The first is a .jpeg file the second is .png all saved at 300dpi for optimum printing, so save both or the relevant one depending whether you want to do a digi page or traditional/hybrid one by right clicking and saving...Can't wait to see what you guys create using this little giveaway :)
And for those who like me are totally lost when it comes to digi scrapping, here's this week's palette with Lightest Lilac, Luscious Lilac, Cornflower Blue and Deepest Brown. BEAUTIFUL!!
And here's my page created with old-fashioned paper and scissors :))
This is my friend L's mother IH and her daughter K on my friend's special birthday last year. They live in York (as in "old" York), UK. Granny is a bonny Scottish lass. I called my page "Together" (.. is the best place to be). This page is now framed and hangs in granny IH's house as I sent it to her for her recent birthday.
I printed out two copies of the same photo, silhouetted one of them and mounted over the other one. It gives the photo a subtle dimension without getting chunky.
The papers are a mix of two different collections from Swedish Pion Design. Lookie lookie - fussy cutting! :))
The flowers are from Prima and Petaloo. Some TA splatter in 3 different hues of blue and lilac. Stickles Star Dust on the cut-out butterflies. I cut white mini doilies from Leeann Pearce's Chip Chop Shop in half and placed them in a fan-shape above the photo, then added a PP Artisan Element and some pearls and a mini Prima resin flower. The alphas are Prima. Liquid pearls for the centres of the violets.
My GD assignment over at Les Papiers de Pandore is nearing its end, but I've still got some more pages to share. Here's the one that was posted on Wednesday, 7 September. I've called it "Little Friends". All the papers are from the summer collection.
As I have mentioned before, dear husband and I love taking drives into the countryside and having coffee and cake somewhere in a picturesque place. In the summer one really has to guard one's cakes and cookies as little friends very quickly come to say hello, i.e. little birds.
The yellow crocheted doily is from Leeann's Chip Chop Shop on Etsy. She has doilies in all sizes and almost all the colours of the rainbow, just delicious!
To continue on the outdoor feel of the page, I've used wooden buttons and very rough twine on the page as well as hand-stitched a golden brown frame. The photo is double matted in green paper and a roughly cut piece of frayed muslin, and then I hand-stitched in zig-zag around the pic.
For the title I used alpha stickers and a label from the summer collection and mounted them on a piece of corrugated cardboard that I cut in the same shape as the label. I initially planned to crochet a border à la Stacy Cohen and therefore had already punched the holes in the cardboard when I changed my mind. What to do? I simply cut off half of the holes and got a stamp border instead!
I painted a chippie border from Imaginarium Design in white acrylic paint, thicker dollops in places to get an uneven surface. Then I cut it horizontally in half to mimic a garden balustrade.
I loved making the felt blooms and cutting out the leaves/stems from the back of one of the papers.
The weather forecast promises lovely balmy weather this weekend, the sun is already showing its pale rays from a clear blue sky. All of Stockholm seemed to be out and enjoying the unexpected warm weather on Friday evening, even I sampled a Frozen Strawberry Margharita and hubbs and I had a wonderful leisurely stroll back home from the cocktail bar.
Wishing you all a really great weekend! Thanks for popping by and leaving a hello!
Take care! xoxoxox Eila
