Tutorial Part 2 : Making Mini Albums : Different ways of Using 12x12 Cardstock

Hi All,
I hope you all liked 2 mini albums I shared with you previously made out of 12x12 cardstock. I couldn't stop myself and made few more. Today I am showcasing one more mini album which has multiple pages and pockets to keep messages and stick photos/notes etc. 
It's a 3x3 inches album with 16 3x3 inches pages.  I have used Femina Paper pack to decorate my mini album. The theme of  my mini is "Love" which anyone can give it to their loved ones. Here is the front look.
I have used MFT Because You stamps and dies, Scalloped edges dies, Stitched flowers dies and Corners dies to accentuate the mini album.
Let's have a look at the individual pages.
For each page, the left side will hold photos while right one has a pocket to keep my messages.
Isn't the girl from Papericious Femina pack diecut sheet is super cute and stylish? I fussy cut various elements from Femina diecut sheets to decorate the inside pages and pockets.
Since the album had 8 pockets, I created 8 2.25x2.25 inches message tags of different types. I stamped various sentiments from MFT Because You stamp set on back of Papericious Femina papers. I also used Papericious Pink Jute cord to create the pullout.
Since few of the sentiments were longer in length, I cut 4.5x2.25 inches pattern paper and folded into half so that it can fit into the 2.5 inches pockets. Here are all the tags when opened. Isn't the sentiments cute? I also decorated the insides by die cutting stitched flower dies from Papericious Femina Papers.
Here is how the tags fit into the pockets.
Another look with all the tags kept inside and album tied up with Papericious pink ribbon.
Here is a brief pictorial of how I created the base of the album.
Step 1 : Score the 12x12 paper at 3,6 and 9 inches. Rotate the paper and score the other side at 3,6 and 9 inches at well. it will give you 12 3x3 inches squares.
Step 2: Score and cut as shown in the picture. Start folding each 3x3 inches square. Once it reaches to the end, fold over to next row and glue these 2 square together.
It's easy peasy to put it together and looks really cute too.
I hope you enjoyed the 3 albums I shared and showcasing different ways to use 12x12 sheets of cardstock.

Mixed Media Card with Whimsical Collection


Papericious card made by Erum Tasneem @pr0digy0

Hello everyone!
Erum here today bringing to you a mixed media card using Whimsical Paper Pack.
This card design is an almost replica to the very first card I made for Papericious.
But this time I used Sigma Cardstock to make my roses and covered them with Crystal Clear Glitter.
They look absolutely beautiful.
The whole card is covered in the Crystal Clear Glitter, I love it and can not recommend it enough!
Papericious card made by Erum Tasneem @pr0digy0
I used a stencil and Gesso to add texture to the background, leaves and parts of the doily and then sprinkled the Crystal Clear Glitter over it while it was still wet.
This card gives such a winter like feeling especially after adding gesso and glitter.
That is all from my side.
I hope you like my sparkly card. 
See you soon :)

Mixed Media Art - Lotus Pond + Video Tutorial!

Hello,

This is Ujjwal and today I am sharing another mixed media project. I am in love with the recently released art mediums by Papericious and can't stop using them.

This lotus pond scene has been in my mind for a long time and Mudra Lotus stamp was perfect for it. I used the beautiful Femina paper which already had a watercolor print and that reduced my effort of painting the flowers. The art work measures 6"x8" and would make a lovely gift.







Here's the complete process video of how I created this art piece,



I hope you enjoyed this project and would give it a try.
Thanks, Ujjwal

Birthday card tutorial

Hello crafties.
This is Diana.

Today I am showing tutorial for easy and interesting card folding.
I used Let`s go paper pack. It has a Travel theme. This card is for my Dad's birthday. He will receive a flight ticket from my family.


 I cut the strip 13,5 cm x 5,5 cm. and I scored at 1,5 cm as shown. I glued the smaller part to the back of the card and the wider part will be shown on the front and will be used as small pocket. 


For the paper be able to be stuck behind the pocket, i used a staple. It is important not to staple throw the front paper. Do cut the front paper shorter so you will have a space from the bottom  (about 1,5 cm).


Now it time to design the front of the card. I used a stamp with  suitable subject.


I wanted to have clean design so I used only three colors: white black and red.  This paper pack have great patterns!


That the front of the card. As you can see the front paper is stopped into the front pocket.  
The text is in Swedish and it says: Enjoy every minute.


When you take out the front paper, that what you see: Short message and I will put a note inside the pocket where it will be said : Ticket to Germany

Hope you like this card.
Hugs from me:
DT Diana




Sigma flowers and Femina card


Hello crafty friends, Monika here.
Today I would like to show you how to make cute and super easy Sigma flowers.



Sigma cardstock are perfect for making flowers, but do you know what I love most about them? We could use punches to punch out shapes from Sigma cardstock. No machines and dies are needed. This is so simple, quick and easy way to make lots of flowers.

So here is a tutorial:
1. Punch some flowers with punches and Sigma cardstock.


2. Put the flowers to the clean water. When flowers are wet, put them on the paper towel to drain off excess water. You could colour them at this step with a paint or ink if you wish.


3. Lay each flower on the  mat face up and push down in the center of each one with embossing tool to shape.


4. The effect will be different when you use different size of the tool. Look at the picture - I used 3 different sizes of tools: the tool first from the left has 2mm, second 4mm, third 8mm.


5. Let all flowers dry, then make a hole in the center of each one.


6.  Apply some glue in the center and adhere stamens. You could also use beads or pearls instead of stamens.



This is the basic technique of making flowers, maybe you would like to learn more? If yes, please write a comment.

I played a little with Sigma cardstock and punches:



Small flowers I made are great filler to the flower cluster, look at them here, on my card.


To make this card I used beautiful papers from Femina paper pack. I love cut out sheet so I used a cute image of baloon. I also added bigger and smaller flowers made from Sigma cardstock, lace white flowers, chipboards embossed white and some green sequins. 


I also decorated the inside of my card.
