How to Create an Easel Card with Studio 75



Hi dear crafty friends! I love giving cards that I made, but sometimes a regular card feels to little. So today I want to share How to Create an Easel Card with Studio 75 which is a little more than a card. It has an option to be opened and stand on its own so it looks much more impressive and a great display.     How to Create an Easel Card with Studio 75 A easel card might look complicated but it’s really easy to create. 1. Start with a piece of 12 x 4 double sided cardstock. You need both sides of the cardstock because the other side will show when the card is standing. 2. Score on 6″ and 9″. Fold both fold line in the same direction.     3. Create a focal point to the card. I used three different sizes of circle scallop punches. I attached them with foam tape for extra dimension. Then …

Mixed Media Fabric Art Journal Pages



Hi dear crafty friends! Today I want to share with you Mixed Media Fabric Art Journal Pages that I’ve created for my art book.     Mixed Media Fabric Art Journal Pages Fabric pages in an art book are unique and special addition. These pages are a textural contrast from paper and add a softer look to the book. Other than a change in texture fabric pages usually include techniques like sewing, embroidery and have different materials on them like lace and buttons. I really love adding fabric pages to my art book. An art book is basically an art journal that we create from scratch and is bound in a book form. The idea is to express ideas, feelings, dreams and fears on one hand and create art on the other on separate paper pieces in different sizes and patterns. Those pieces of papers are divided into signatures that are stitched together into a book. A signature is a …

Scrapbooking Tips: Use Your Kids Drawings



Hi dear crafty friends! Today on Scrapbooking Tips: Use Your Kids Drawings. When my kids were smaller and went to kindergarten Every week they brought a pile of their drawings home.

I kept some of them and some of them I did throw away but some found their way to my layouts!     Scrapbooking Tips: Use Your Kids Drawings You probably ask yourselves how did I do that. Well, its actually very easy. First you find a drawing you like that has vibrant colors and a defines shapes. Then you scan it to your computer. The next step is to cut out the drawing you need. For that you would need a graphic program like Photoshop or something similar. You can also physically cut out the drawing from the paper and scan it after it’s cut.       …
