Scrap fun with Ingvild Bolme – Part 1

I just love days like this! Yesterday and today I had the pleasure to attend two classes with Ingvild Bolme from Norway. We had a lot of fun creating projects with Prima products, and boy, did we get Prima products. Each kit was packed full with goodies: papers,8 packages of flowers, letter sheets, metal embellishments, journaling cards, ink, adhesive, mini album, sticker sheet and the list goes on. We also had the pleasure of working with Ingvild’s new tools! These tools are just great. The knife is super sharp and flexible and there is an option of changing its angle if you want. The distressing tool is basically 5 tools in one: two files one rough and the other gentle, bone folder, distresser and a metal brush. It is all on one tool! Very clever! You can already see a hint of one of the projects we did, but I want to finish all of them so I can share …

101 Flowers Tutorial #7: ribbon flower

I love ribbons, you love ribbons, everybody loves ribbons! Why? Because they are so versatile, pretty and fun. One of my favorite things to create from ribbon is flowers. From each ribbon you can create two sizes of flowers: big and small, all you need is a needle and thread:1. Thread the ribbon on the bottom. 2. Pull the thread to crease the ribbon. 3. Join the two edges with the thread. 4. To create a smaller flower fold the ribbon in half length wise and repeat the first stages. 5. To finish your flowers add a brad or a button in the center.6. You can create layered ribbon flowers too! Have fun creating flowers for your projects! Einat

Technique corner: Layout with a hinge

I shared with you before my passion for interactive scrapbooking. I don’t know, something about moving parts in a scrapbook layout just does it for me. Interactive scrapbooking can be anything as long as you have to discover a hidden secret, a photo or a message. It can be hidden in a small booklet, a turning wheel or even a pocket. This time it’s hidden behind a door! But not just a regular door, but a two sided photo door and just like any door it has a hinge that keeps it attached to the paper. Here is how to create a hinged door on your layout: 1. You will need two photos in the same size. I used 4″ X 6″ photos. It is the same photo, one in colors and one in black and white. 2. Attach a hinge to one of the photos using two brads. I used regular hinges I bought at the hardware store. 3. …

Back to school: a special Mini Album for a special teacher

It’s time to go back to school! I always have mixed feelings about going back to school, I want the house back to myself, but I love spending time with them and I enjoy the time off from all the driving, baking, volunteering…. This time of year always reminds me of my son’s first teacher. She was one of a kind! She was his teacher for four years and she is largely responsible for his amazing progress. We all cried when it was time to say goodbye. Luckily his new teacher is just as great and the class gets to meet their old teacher when she comes to visit. I wanted to make her something special when she left, something to help her remember all the wonderful moments they shared during those four years. I decided to make a special mini album in the spirit of learning. Each page is dedicated to a letter in the Hebrew alphabet, total of …
