Lindy's July tutorial

I'm with Lindy's for more than 2 years now, wow time flies! I've always love to create on white backgrounds to leave space to the colors and this layout is not an exception. 

I found 2 tones of Starburst sprays in my stash as starting point and I imagine my layout around those shades.

I started with a flower stamp that I've embossed with Black forest black.

I took my Starburst Bling-y Blonde to make small splatters here and there. I dried it with my heat gun.

Once completely dried, I did the same with my second color Starburst Pretty in pink pink. Those 2 colors are part of our July combo!

Once again, I dried all the ink with my heat gun. At that point I realized that my picture will hide most of my flowers. This is always a struggle I have, making a beautiful background but hiding it after! I decided to stamp on a piece of scrap watercolor paper and to do it once again.

I fuzzy cut the poppies only.

Then I completed my layout with straws, badge, chipboards and voilà! 
I made a few close ups for you:

I stamped some leaves on vellum paper and I embossed them with Purely white powder.

I hope you enjoyed the process, see you later with another tutorial!

Tropical layout for 49 and Market


Hi everyone!
 Today I made a beautiful Tropical page using the "Laser cuts" that are totally gorgeous! I love them and I planned to make a layout with them for a while but I was waiting the perfect inspiration fit!


It seems that I didn't use a lot of stock but there is so many different shapes in only 1 package of "Laser cuts" that I will be able to make 1 or 2 more layouts with them even if I used already a LOT!

49 and market products
"Dandelion fields" clock laser cut
"Tropical Paradise" laser cuts
"Coral Reef" from Sand and See collection
"The Lookout" from Sand and See collection
"Tangled" from Sand and See collection
"Grammar" stamp by Pascale


I teared papers to layer my background to add dimension. I started with "Coral Reef" as a base. Then I layered "Tangled". I added clear gesso over both and I stenciled here and there with modeling paste mixed with Magicals from Lindy's. I made drops with a white ink from the same brand. I ended up with "The Lookout" paper.


I made arrangement of flowers and leaves from the "Tropical paradise" Laser cuts.


Same around my picture. Those cuts were simply perfect and I decided to keep it with only diecuts and to not put paper flowers on this one. This is something I rarely do! I've stamped on my background here and there with the "Grammar" stamp.
The little fishes that stole my heart where from a diecut sheet included in the "12x12 Sand and See collection pack"!


Lindy's products: Magical powder Asure sea Asters and Sidewalk chalk spray

That's it for today and I will be with you later in the month for another creation in 49 and Market!

The summer badges are from Cuts2luv (the store is closed for July)

Wild & Free for 49 and Market

Here's my last layout for 49 and Market with the beautiful Sweet Reflexions new collection! 


49 and market products used
"Reminiscence" from Sweet Reflexions (background paper)
"Botanical blends" Vintage shades Yellow
"Vintage shades" Sage blossoms
"Botanical Potpourri" Snow
"Roses" Green
Gabi "Label" stamp set
Archival board "Wild & Free"
"Dragon fly Revolution" Layered embellishments

This paper line is simply perfect to add a touch of any color on it, they are soft and elegant! This paper, "Reminiscence" is clearly one of my favorite in the collection. I love the little butterflies! I've fussy cut some to add as embellishments from the 6x6 pad also.


The "Botanical blends" are a perfect focal point in a layout. I used the Yellow ones to match with my picture.


From the "Wild & Free" Archival board, I used the dream catcher as a frame, the title and also the little flowers to complete my flowers bouquets perfectly. I didn't color the chipboards this time, the white touch was just perfect to bright up my layout. 


I ended up this layout with adding a few leaves from the "Dragon fly revolution" layered embellishments and stamping from the "label" stamp set here and there on my background.


The beautiful spring badges are from Cuts2luv  

and the inks I used are all from Lindy's gang.
Flat Merry go round
Flat Sidewalk chalk

Thank you for your time!

Tropical state of mind for Lindy's

I made this layout for my June step by step tutorial at Lindy's

I wanted to share that amazing technique I found at our last scrapbook retreat to fill in engraved chipboards and make them pop even more. 

Have a short look on the technique in picture: 




Mix modeling paste with your fav color of Magical



Apply the modeling paste over the engraved portion of the chippie. Wait for 1 minute and gently clean the excess with a baby wipe. 


Here's the result!
