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!

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.

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.
Thank you very much for stopping by and see you next time.
