Evelin T Designs | Debut Day 2 | Winter/Christmas Stamp Release


Welcome to the Evelin T Designs Winter/Christmas Stamp Release!   We are celebrating day 2 of the release with a blog hop and giveaways.  You should have come from the very talented, Annette Allen's blog.  I'm so excited for my very talented friend and her creations, seeing her vision come into these stamps she can share with everyone!  I always enjoy her style and designs and today we introduce Day 2 with Be Merry, Winter Magic, Season's Greetings.  First card I'm sharing is with the Be Merry Set!

I created two panels for this slimline card.  The plaid pattern paper just says the holidays to me and the color is just right and not too busy.  I used this side to heat emboss in black my sentiment on a die cut label.

My right side is the white card panel.  I started by blending some green for my mushroom tree and the merry makers.  I colored and detailed cut them out to place where I wanted, adding foam adhesive on two to add dimension.  I LOVE the little notes, so had to add them to the background, and then to tie in with the black sentiment, I added black acrylic stars from Elle's Studio.

This next set, Winter Magic, I predict is going to be very popular.  It has some amazing design in it.  I wanted to show off the set in a different way to really show off the versatility of the set.  I started by using my Star Piercing dies to create a background on the black cardstock panel.  Then I heat embossed in gold with the clouds and stars from the set.

With those pierced stars on my background, to make them pop, I layered shiny silver cardstock behind it!  With my background created, I heat embossed the cute critters in white on white cardstock.  Next I added watercolors to them.  Once dry, I used a Star Die on each one, and also die cut in blue cardstock for a panel for each one.

I heat embossed the sentiment in gold on shiny silver paper.  There is so much shine on this card, it is hard to capture it on the camera, but you can still see it!  Every time you turn it, you see the shiny silver behind the pierced stars, the gold embossed clouds, and the sentiment.

Now onto another that I predict to be very popular is the Season's Greetings.  This set has amazing sentiments.  We can't get enough of them, and they are all not just so useable, but the FONTS are AMAZING!

I let this sentiment take center stage on my watercolored background.

Another layer I added to my background was using stenciling the rays.

Evelin T Designs | Debut Day 1 | Winter/Christmas Stamp Release

 


Welcome to the Evelin T Designs Winter/Christmas Stamp Release Debut Day 1!  I'm so excited for my very talented friend and her creations, seeing her vision come into these stamps she can share with everyone!  I always enjoy her style and designs and today we introduce Day 1 with Baby, It's Cold Outside and Pup-tastic Christmas.  First, I'm sharing a fun interactive card using Baby, It's Cold Outside.

As you can see, this is my first try at the slimline cards.  I really like the orientation of them.  I kept all of my cards horizontal, but I do love the vertical look.  I started by freehand creating snowdrifts/slopes to stencil and mask onto my card panel.  Then I used the snowballs and masked them to create a pile of freshly rolled balls, and as you can see the little friend at the bottom of the hill is ready for the big friend coming down the slope!

I think the interactive slider just adds to the magical feel of Winter and Christmas with imagining what it looks like after the yeti either hits the snowballs or gets cremated by the little friend by snowballs as he comes down the slope.

Next, is Pup-tastic Christmas.  I don't have an interactive piece on this card, but there is motion in this little cutie, and I wanted to some kind of way bring that out.  The snow angel he is creating along with the magic of Christmas, gave me the idea to create rays of color coming out from him.  I die cut a Sun Ray die, and used part of it on either side of my card using blue, green, and pink.  


He is my focal point, so after coloring him, I used a circle die to cut him out, and foam adhered him right in the center.  I stamped my sentiment, and then added enamel dots to coordinate with my rays.


Just looking at him makes me smile with that little tongue!  I used a white gel pen to add a few little dots on him.


Both cards were colored with Faber-Castel Polychromos Pencils, so relaxing to color these cuties.

Now for the fun part for you!

Citrus Twist Kits | October Flourish Life Crafted Kit | Traveler's Notebook



Hey Everyone!  I'm on the Citrus Twist Kits blog today sharing this hybrid Life Crafted spread.  I'm using one of the TN Page Basics Collection and a few of the die cuts I printed and fussy cut, as well as one of the Cut files in this project today.


I did a little more fussy cutting with the pattern paper from the kit to layer over my digitally printed and trimmed page.  I used part of the pink stickers from the kit to matte my photo!  Try it, it is such an awesome look.  Then I just added a little bit of stamping and embellishments to finish.



For the right side, I used Kraft cardstock and cut out the Fall divider, and backed the letters with pattern paper from the kit.  The inside decorative part of the letters cuts all the way out, but I foam adhered them back, trimming adhesive to fit the letters.  Added the same stamping I did on the left, and more fussy cut flowers from pattern paper.


This right side with two pockets is completely digital and cut out, except for the top blue card.  


I used the top tag for journaling, and added a cluster of another photo, fussy cut digitals, stamping, and a puffy heart.  I love that this is Halloween themed, but not overly themey!



Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Bella Blvd | A Halloween Birthday Party | Heidi Swapp Storyline Scrapbook Insert

 

Hello!  I'm on the Bella Blvd blog today sharing a priceless memory I came across.  How fitting is the Monsters & Friends collection for a plush ghost toy's birthday celebration!  This plush toy was my daughter's everything, and he has been lost at Hobby Lobby, Michael's, Disney World, or forgotten at home.  We had to 'find' another one, he is retired, as a backup for our sanity.  Halloween is a ghosts time of year, so here is how I used the collection to document this Halloween memory in the Heidi Swapp Storyline Scrapbook Insert.


I started with the red Bella Besties Hearts and Ombre trimmed to fit on the left side.  That ombre gives me a gorgeous backdrop for my photos, and journaling.  I used the reverse side of the paper to show the hearts to matte my typed journaling.  I left a little room on the inside to be able to stitch (before adhering this page) a die cut ghost tag, and then used the large October die cut and the Florence red alpha stickers for the date of my daughter's little friend's birthday.  I finished this page with a few of the collections stickers and a heart hug.


My photos from the left start with my daughter 'lighting' the candles with a chopstick, Ghostie blowing out the candies, and her wishing him a Happy Birthday, so this right side needed to really be fun and festive.  The Monsters & Friends coordinates perfectly with the Hearts and Ombre on the left.  I started by using a background Bella Blvd cut file with hexagons and diagonal stripes to stencil red ink onto my background.  Then I cut hexagons from more of the red Hearts and Ombre pattern paper and definitely made sure to use the little ghosts pattern paper from Monsters & Friends.  Red and Aqua are a gorgeous combination.


Once that and my photo was in place, I started having friends join the party.  I pulled out almost all of the ghost die cuts from Monsters & Friends.  I placed all the grey ghosts together and the white all together, this helps to bring some repetition to my busy background.  Next, I used the Aria and the Monsters & Friends alpha stickers for my title.

The last thing to do was give each ghost a treat to bring to the part, so I foam adhered more die cuts to each one, added epoxy stars, and also added the epoxy tiny ghosts to fill in.  The more the merrier, right?!


Halloween with kids can bring so many amazing memories, not just from the 31st.  Hope this gives you an idea of how to use Monsters & Friends and the Hearts and Ombre to document your stories.

Elle's Studio | October Kit + Extras | Traveler's Notebook

 

This might be my favorite project I created with the October Kit and Extras from Elle's Studio for the gallery.  I pulled in some of the Halloween colors from the extras and the kit to document a new favorite tradition.  Have you ever done a chocolate haunted mansion cookie kit?!  We love this so much, we got the graveyard cookie kit this year to do from Target.  I started with a large photo of our completed mansion, leaving a white cardstock border on the left.  That gave me plenty of room to use the new Documented Stamp in colors to complement the Halloween colors.  I made sure not to go bold with the stamp, and I like the softness it created.


I combined the washi style Halloween sticker with last years candy corn puffy alphas!  Then on the bottom left of that side, I used the larger Documented Stamp image with one of the sentiments from the set combining the new acetate stars and puffy shapes to cluster around it and my smaller photo.  I really like having the large photo, and the little photo of us in the process of creating it with that cluster!  


I used a tag from the kit in the Halloween colors to add another in process photo, clustering a Thankful Chipboard Label, the acetate stars and puffy shapes.  I machine stitched in black to adhere those stars.


I took that same stamp image from the Documented Stamp set that I used on the top left, and create stripes on this tag from the kit.  Using that same color ink that isn't too bold again worked so well to blend in and not compete with the Halloween colors I brought in.  Added my journaling after stamping, added more stamping, and stickers to finish.


Favorite new tradition and favorite October gallery project!  Thank you for stopping by and hope you enjoy the October Kit and Extras!!

Bella Blvd | October Mood Board | Heidi Swapp Storyline Scrapbook Insert

 


Hello!  I'm on the Bella Blvd blog with inspiration from the new October Mood Board!.

Gorgeous Fall and Halloween Mood Board this month!  I love the Orange and the black, but there are so many more possibilities and inspiration from this piece, with the Fall patterns and the pops of color!  Here is how I used the Mood Board.

I love documenting in my traveler's notebooks, but I also love pocket pages and 6x8 layouts.  So for today, I'm using the Heidi Swapp scrapbook insert book which I feel gives me the best of both of those sizes and gives me more room for creativity and documenting!  I treated the left side as if it were a pocket page with a trimmed out card from the Monster & Friends pattern paper and my photo I found on the Internet for the movie Home.  The Monster & Friends collection inspired me to document about our love of this movie, and we still love to watch it over and over as well as listen to the soundtrack! 


The quote on the card from the collection 'Put your hands in the air if you just don't scare' instantly made me think of the Movie.  I used the Florence, Aria, and the Monsters & Friends Alphabet Stickers along the far left for quotes from the movie.  These colors are inspired by the Mood Board.


The right side, I documented like I would a 6x8 layout.  I used a 3x4 photo, and then trimmed the diagonal black and white pattern paper from the collection to create an intersection of the lines.  I cut out Bowtie and Nighttime cut files from Bella Blvd on the Silhouette Design Store, and used some of the clouds cut from black and white polka dot pattern paper over the black diagonal paper, added machine stitching, then used my circle punch to punch circles from my altered pattern paper, as well as black cardstock, and the Clear Cuts with the orange hearts. 


Had to put the name of the main character from the movie, which is 'Oh,' so I used the same color Aria alphas and placed on my photo.  I finished with a few more cut files, stickers, dots, and journaling to finish.


Hope you are inspired to create a colorful, patterned filled project using the October Mood Board and please share on Instagram and tag @bellablvd #bellablvd so we can all see!

Elle's Studio | October Kit + Extras | Halloween Mini Album

Every year since we adopted our daughter, I have a Halloween album.  I love documenting the season and especially love the products that spark creativity and make albums come together so quickly.  I will walk you through how this mini album came together in just one evening using the current October Kit, Extras, as well as last years Halloween treats

The cover and the base pages of my album are all from the Autumn Days Paper Stack.  After deciding on how many photos to include in my album, I went through the Paper Stack and selected not just Halloween colors, but neutral and fun colors that would either complement costumes or create a beautiful Fall contrast to my photos.  I trimmed all of my pages to 4 1/4" x 6.  To add the year to my front cover, I used the Large Jane Metal Die creating the focus of the cover, and then clustered with an acetate star and a Happy Halloween Sticker.  I had two acrylic bones left from last year that were perfect adhered to my cover.


The first inside page is seen through my cover, so I used the Winifred Alphabet Stamp to stamp Happy Halloween in grey ink, then placed and adhered the acrylic candy from last year so that it could be seen through the cover.  A quick way to put together a mini album is to create repetition of the pages.  The left side will be the the white backside of the pattern paper and the right will be pattern paper.  For each white backside, I used the Documented Stamp image to create horizontal lines in a pale peach color, and then used the Winifred Alphabet Stamp set to stamp Happy Halloween.


The right side with pattern paper, will be my 3x4 photo, half of a pinking Trick or Treat Circle altered to just be the circle cut in half.  I altered the placement of the half pinking circle on each pattern paper page just to add a little interest.  I picked the color of the pattern paper to complement my photo and pattern paper background.


Depending on each photo, I used a combination of kit die cuts, the acetate stars, acrylic leaves, Tiny Shapes & Dots Puffy Stickers, Happy Halloween Stickers, Puffy Alpha stickers, and especially the wonderful Candy Corn Puffy Alphas, as well as leftovers of the Halloween Puffy Stickers from last year.  For this page, I used the Mini Days of the Week Stamp to add the 'th' after the 11.


Another pattern I created throughout the pages was adding black machine stitching around each page.  Once my pages were prepped and I had my products and photos ready, I continued with the design of a 3x4 photo and clustering the products to fit that photo.  In some cases, like this page, I didn't match my photo, but I used green, blue, black and white.  It works well with the neutral colors of the photo!


This page is a perfect example of using the products I selected to complement the photo.  I pulled out the Puffy Alphas in a combination of colors to go with my photo, along with the acrylic leaf, acetate stars, Tiny Shapes & Dots Puffy Stickers, and last years Halloween Puffy Stickers.


I am so happy to find a perfect spot for the Halloween Puffy Stickers on this page along with those wonderful acetate stars!


Even though I have a pattern for creating each page, staying with those products I selected made this come together so quickly and gave me the creativity to also make each page unique.
 

Definitely pull out your Elle's Studio Puffy Alpha Stickers.  They added a fun personality to this Halloween Puffy Sticker and photo.


A may have hoarded these little ghosts from last years Halloween Puffy Stickers, but I am glad I did, because this was the photo to add them too!


I used the Cinch to bind my album, but you could just punch holes and use rings or even ribbon to bind the pages.  Whether you document Halloween by the year or even group the years together to document in one album, start by deciding on the base pages, then how you want to create repetition throughout each page, select your Elle's Studio products that are versatile for your photos, and you will not only love your completed mini album, but you will enjoy putting it together!  Definitely Big Smiles for This!!
