Welcome to the first
I hope you have arrived here
from the wonderful blog of
and enjoyed her beautiful
The kit of this month is called
and has beautiful pink, white and turquoise papers
and stamps with a balloon theme.
To inspire you as what to do with
these papers I have made a scrap page
and some cards.
This page is made for the
Weekly Chronicles. A feature on the
where some of us make a scrappage
each week on a given theme.
(if you click on the photo, you
can see a larger version and read the text)
Here a close up on the embellishment on this page.
It is made with a cloud embossing folder and
one of the hot air balloon stamps
For the stamp I used a multicolor inkpad
and embossed it with clear embossing powder.
Some clouds are cut out of the embossed
paper and added on top with a piece
of foam tape for more effect.
And now for some cards.
I have chosen to make some cards that
fit the PSL theme
(Pro Scrapbook League)
of "create a curve".
All info about PSL can be found here:
I went to my favourite Technique Junkies
and found these techniques:
1. Collages Circles Sept 2011
2. Punched Windows Aug 2009
3. Circle Colored Collage June 2012
If you are a member of TJ you can
see the photo turorials of these techniques.
1. Collage Circles
Great technique to use up all
those scraps you have lying around. Just
punch out a lot of circles, the do not have to be
all the same size like I did here. You can
glue them nice and tidy or ad random on
a backround panel for your card.
Here you see my finished card.
Yes, nice and easy. For you want to
make a lot of cards for PSL.
2. Punched Windows
For this technique you also need your circle punch
First you stamp on your card random images.
Punch out a few windows.
As many windows you stamp your image
on a seperate puiece of paper and cut it out
to lay behind the punched window.
Finish your card with a contrasting color
behind the windows. This is one panel
(here the red one).
BTW the left over circles can be used in
the first technique!
3. Circle Colored Collage
Another quick and easy technique.
Here you need a circle stamp (Wings July 2005)
and a few colors of ink.
You can do this 2 ways:
a.(left) first stamp your big image in black
then take the circle stamp and cover the
background with the circles.
b. (right) Stamp the background first with
all the circles in different colors.
Dry with heatgun. Now stamp large
image in black and you can even emboss
it in black if you like.
All my other project for the Pro Scrapbook League
