Why I love bikes layout

Everyone in my family loves bikes. Well..almost everyone. I’m not a big fan. I wanted to create a special layout with bikes photos, but I wanted it to be really special not just with a bicycle sticker or cutout. I decided to make a wheel layout, a layout that would turn like a wheel of a bicycle. This is a DT layout for My Punch’s Kit of the Month Club. It is made of two papers and a brad. I cut a window in the round scalloped paper and attached it with a brad to the center of the background paper. Then I adhered the photos to the paper. First the bottom photo, then I turned the wheel and added the second photo. I added embellishments and a title to finish the layout. BTY I didn’t have any bicycle sticker or cutout in the kit, so I ended up drawing it myself! Have fun creating! Einat

Technique Corner: Open a window

This is another LO I did for My Punch’s kit of the month club. The LO has a really fun and easy technique you can do in any layout or card, a window technique. The window has a double purpose, it frames the photo and draw your eye to it, as well as add interest and dimension to the LO. Here is how to do it: 1. Measure the photo you want to use. 2. Draw a photo size square on your paper. 3. Cut the square in three places: the top and bottom lines. 4. Open the paper to the sides and create your window! To enhance the window effect you can add a balloon like I did, or clouds, birds and even sun or snow. Have fun creating! Einat

101 Flower Tutorial #9: Fall Cluster

Fall is in the air! It’s my second favorite season (the first one is winter). I love it when the skies turn grey, the leaves turn orange and yellow and the first drops of rain clean the streets. So, of course today’s flower tutorial is going to be all about fall. You can make this fall cluster for all your Thanksgiving cards and layout and you can make it in a larger scale as a center piece for your holiday table or to decorate the front door. 1. Take different size and color flowers and adhere them together. 2. Cut pieces of metal wire and swirl the edges. 3. Punch or cut leaves from yellow and orange scraps of paper and attach to the wire. 4. Attach the wires and some more leaves to the bottom of the flower. Have fun creating! Einat

Ins(paper)ation: Home is where the heart is 3D frame

“God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?”William Arthur Ward In spite the fact that I don’t celebrate Thanksgiving (since I don’t live in North America) I think it’s a great tradition to appreciate the things you are grateful for. Life has a different meaning if you stop and take stock of all the things you are thankful for. This wonderful tradition has inspired me to create something for and about my family. I created a 3D frame with a family photo, layers, embellishments and one of my favorite quotes: “Home is where the heart is”. I first colored the frame with a white acrylic paint. After it was was dry I painted it with brown color. I created the distressed look by sanding the brown layer up to the point where the white color was showing. I built the book shelf from a few scraps of wood. I painted it …
