My 2nd Tutorial for Scrapbook Studio

No wonder I have been feeling grim!! I finally went to the doctor on Saturday, and he diagnosed me with bronchitis. I have been man down all weekend!!!!

So... hence the delay in getting this tutorial up. Better late than never I say. 

I hope my South African friends are all enjoying the long weekend, and have braaied up a storm today. My hubby braaied us some delicious meat, just what the doctor ordered ;)

So here is the second layout I created with the September kit from Scrapbook Studio. I am so happy with the way this one turned out!!

I gather all the elements I want to use on my page. In this instance I changed the color of my photos to black & white, as they didn’t match the patterned papers I want to use. I do this fairly often! I am doing a sports themed page, so I grabbed both the lovely “teresa collins” stamps included in the kit.

I spray some Mister Huey’s Color Mist in the color Leaf Green onto a piece of cream cardstock, I like the effect of spraying mist onto plain cardstock, it gives it a bit of life!

I decided to make some embellies from the stamps. I used some of the Glossy Cardstock that came with the kit. This is the first time I have embossed and used Tim Holtz distress ink with this cardstock, and it goes on like a dream!!

I stamp the image with VersaMark ink, and then add white embossing powder. Here is the image before I have heated it.

Here is the image after I have heated it. I don’t have a fancy heating gun, so I just use my toaster to heat the image.

Sponge some Distress Ink onto the image. I used the Tim Holtz Distress ink in the color “Faded Jeans”.

Cut out the image. I followed the same procedure with the other “Teresa Collins” stamp in the kit. I plan to pop up both the stamped images with foam tape!

I fiddle with my photos and other elements until I find a layout I am happy with. I cut out some of the lovely card images from the “Cheer ‘em on” paper from Webster’s Pages, using pieces with blue in them so I can add a little bit of blue to co-ordinate with the blue stamped images!! I use my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the word “athletics”, arrow and the stars. 

A side-on view so you can see how lovely the popped up embossed stamped embellies look on my layout!!

This really is the most wonderful kit, and I still have LOADS AND LOADS of product left after creating these last 2 pages. 

REMEMBER - This kit can be ordered by just e-mailing with September DT kit in the Subject Line.

I will be back with another Scrapbook Studio tutorial soon!!
