Domestic Diva ♥ for FabScraps

She loves to try on new clothes, posing, checking herself in the mirror and she is so pretty whatever she wears.... and wherever she lies... She is really our Domestic Diva ♥

Domestic Diva – Petra Offrell
For This Layout You Will Need
  • FabScraps Milkshake Chic  paper range: C58 001, 003, 005, and MC58 006,010,  and MCDC58 006
  • DC58 008 Domestic Diva Chip board
  • Mask with distress ink., flowers,  white CS, paper clips, washi tap, feathers
  • Gesso, black mist, pink/purple acrylic paint.

  1. Use a White Cardstock as background
  2. Fussy cut the girl from C58 003 PP and keep the black and white stripes.
  3. Cut out pieces of PP slightly bigger than your photograph from C58 005 and yet slightly larger from C58 003 and again C58 001. Add some distress ink to all the edges. Then stack them on top of each other, slightly out of center, with the fuzzy cut piece on top. Glue together but not the corners where you should curl the corners (you can use a pen to curl around).
  4. Now fit the gate (MC58 006) and the papers on the page but do not glue down. Add some distress ink on the background using a mask/stencil and then some decorative splatters from the black mist. Let dry.  
  5. Glue down the photo/PP/gate cluster
  6. Cut out the stripe of paper from MC58 010and add.
  7. Paint the chipboard piece, let dry and glue on.
  8. Add some Washi to a few paper clips and add.
  9. Make a flower from MCDC58 006, curl the edges, add two feathers and glue down.
  10. Add 4 mini roses or similar flowers (I curled the wire around a pen)
  11. Now this will get messy but this is how I did it. Make a pile of gesso and dip your finger in it. Add gesso to the edges of the flowers, the paper stripes, the gate- a little here and there until you are happy.  
  12. Enjoy!
Thanks Limor for the inspiring video tutorials that made me add the Gesso. And thanks Linda inspiring me to add the mini roses to the gate. ♥

Laugh and play ♥ for FabScraps

I made a third page using the lovely Baby Bear collection from FabScraps and I used one of my favorite photos again LOL.

For This Layout You Will Need
  • FabScraps Baby Bears paper range: C57 003, 004, 005, and MC57 007, 008 and MCD57 001,004,  005  
  • Mask with distress ink. Date stamp, flower, mini alphas, white CS, Doily
  • Machine stitching, dies, Silhouette.

  1. Use the Story Bear 1 PP as a background
  2. Cut out pieces of PP and details and a doily and arrange them to form a cluster nice to the eye. It is nice to use dies on some of them to form different shapes. Distress all edges and then glue together but not to the background.
  3. Add some decorative machine stitching
  4. Add some mask/distress to the background so that they will show behind the photo/PP/decoration cluster.
  5. Glue on the photo cluster
  6. Fuzzy cut a strips of paper, distress the edges and glue to the top of the page.
  7. Add the title. I have used some mini alpha stickers and a word cut using the Silhouette.   
  8. Also the XOXO tab is cut using the Silhouette,
  9. Add the flower
  10. Distress the edges of the base.
  11. Enjoy!
