Easter Scrapbook Page

Next weekend is Easter and of course in the days before everything revolves around this holiday. Especially with my daughter the joy rises. I have created a suitable layout. And what fits better than a nest full of Easter eggs! Except in this case it’s a garland of eggs. For this I used different tools, so every egg looks different. I like to add different effects to a layout.

First I used the Big Happy Jig and made an egg out of wire. I created a small template for myself and then put the pegs on the board.

For the next egg I used the Fuse Tool and many colorful sequins. After a long time one of my favourite tools was used again! First I sketched a template on paper. Then I glued it on an old project life page protector and cut it generously with scissors. Then I put the sequins between the two plastic sheets and closed the egg with the Fuse Tool.

I made another egg with the help of a hand sketch.

The Stitch Happy Tool was also used again. I first sketched two eggs with a pencil. The points for the embroidery holes were made. Then I removed the lines again with an eraser. And now embroidered.

Finally the title was created with the Word Punch Board and the papers of Heidi Swapp. Thank you very much for stopping by and I wish you a nice Easter!

Foil Quill Baby Album

I was totally excited when I first tried Foil Quill and was surprised at how easy it was to use. My Silhouette Cameo is 5 years old and it worked great.

Foil Quill Acetate Baby Album by Steffi Ried for We R Memory KeepersI’ll show you how I created a Baby mini album with a transparent cover.  This is a nice gift idea for the birth. The parents can fill it with photos. Below you will also find a short video.

I decorated the transparent book cover with the Foil Quill. First I tried different materials with the Foil Quill and then I decided on an acetate cover. My absolute favorite for mini albums.Foil Quill Acetate Baby Album by Steffi Ried for We R Memory KeepersFoil Quill Acetate Baby Album by Steffi Ried for We R Memory KeepersFoil Quill Acetate Baby Album by Steffi Ried for We R Memory KeepersFoil Quill Acetate Baby Album by Steffi Ried for We R Memory Keepers
I used the Bold Tip Pen for all motifs. I think that with the thicker lines the motifs are best shown on the foil and the wood.Foil Quill Acetate Baby Album by Steffi Ried for We R Memory KeepersThe mini album has the size 4 x 4 inches. First I cut the papers from Heidi Swapps new collection “Color Fresh” 4 x 12 inch and then folded them two times. After that I folded it to a leporello, so that you can look at it from both sides.Foil Quill Acetate Baby Album by Steffi Ried for We R Memory KeepersOn the computer I created the motifs and the title for the book cover.  For this I used motifs and the title from Foil Quill USB Art – Icons and Words.  There are many beautiful motifs for babies and children.

You have to make sure that it fits exactly to the dimensions of the book cover. As you can see, I also wrote the name of the baby on the spine of the book. These I have from Foil Quill USB Art – Amy Tangerine. I think it’s great. You can even personalize your project or write your own words.Foil Quill Acetate Baby Album by Steffi Ried for We R Memory KeepersFirst I created the cover and the spine with the pink foil sheet (from the package “Flamingo”). Therefore I removed the motif from the backside of the book. After the motives were written with the Foil Quill, I inserted the rainbows in the program again (->over edit – undo).  Afterwards with the foil sheet rose gold (from the package “Shining Starling”) the back of the book cover with the foil Quill provided.

 

 

Finally folded and finished was the transparent book cover!Foil Quill Acetate Baby Album by Steffi Ried for We R Memory KeepersFoil Quill Acetate Baby Album by Steffi Ried for We R Memory Keepers

Foil Quill Acetate Baby Album by Steffi Ried for We R Memory KeepersOn the inside of the album there is also a vellum bag decorated with Foil Quill. I also made small tags of thin wood with Foil Quill. This also worked great.

Have fun watching the creation of the mini album:

In addition to the mini album I created a small transparent pocket. Because I wanted to have the motif in the middle of the bag, I first created a template from Cardstock. For this I used the Pocket Maker Punchboard.Foil Quill Acetate Baby Album by Steffi Ried for We R Memory KeepersI cut the acetate into the desired size and placed it on the pattern. Now use a dry erase marker to sketch the area for the motif. Then place the foil precisely on the foil. Using the inches on the mat you can place your foil exactlyFoil Quill Acetate Baby Album by Steffi Ried for We R Memory KeepersAfter the motif has been created on the foil, remove the sketched lines with a cloth. Cut the foil with the Pocket Maker Punchboard and fold it – the sweet, transparent pocket is ready!Foil Quill Acetate Baby Album by Steffi Ried for We R Memory KeepersI also have a short video for you:

IMG_0649I hope you enjoyed my contribution. There are so many possibilities with the Foil Quill. I am very enthusiastic and will use it often. It was a lot of fun. See you next time!

Scrapbook Page with the Ribbon Stitching Tool

Hello and Welcome to a new layout with a new tool. This time with the Ribbon Stitch Tool. With this tool you can quickly and easily create great woven effects. For this you need the colorful ribbons from We R Memory Keepers.

First, I thought about how I could best use the tool on my layout. And so I decided to use circles. The layout has the size 9 x 12 inch. First I cut out 3 circles with the cutting machine. A circle for the ribbons.

The holes for the ribbon are made with the small handy piercer. The magnetic guide is placed on the cardstock and there you go. The paper does not slip through the magnets.

I pierced the holes in a staggered fashion. To create a woven pattern.

Many colorful ribbons are available from We R Memory Keepers. And I really wanted to put a lot of colors on my layout. Due to the different materials and patterns the ribbons look very interesting.

The ribbon is attached to a small adhesive needle. I used the needle for all the tapes. That worked great. You don’t always have to use a new needle.

After embroidering, I wrapped some yarn around the edge of the circle and glued them to the back. I decorated the lower circle with papers from the Crate Paper collection La La Love.

I hope you enjoyed my short tutorial and thank you for stopping by.

Scrapbook Page with the Precision Press Advanced Accessories

Hello and welcome. It’s me, Steffi and I’m showing you a layout of me today. This I have created with the great Precision Press Advanced and the Pattern Block & Stamps. A tool to stamp precise and exact images every time. The acrylic plate has grooves. In it the letters can be placed exactly and do not slip. I think that’s great. One can stamp several times and the stamp does not slip. That doesn’t work so well with a normal acrylic block.

I also think it’s great that so many letters are present several times in the alphabet. So you can stamp several words and texts at the same time. I think that’s great. It makes it a lot easier.

First I painted the white cardstock (9×12 inch) with acrylic paint. After the paint had dried, I stamped on it. I used the Precision Press Advanced with the Pattern Block & Stamps. The patterned motifs are great for beautiful backgrounds. I used the feathers. I stamped directly on the cardstock and a few feathers on vellum paper. I cut them out and glued them to the layout with glue dots. So it gets more dimension.

Then I stamped the title with a black ink stamp pad.

Below the photo I used some more patterns from the Pattern Block & Stamps. The stamps are very versatile. Then I added the photo with stickers and paper from the Crate Paper La La Love collection.
