Remember to Live

Hello!  I hope all you are fine!  Today I'm showing you this page that I made with Vintage Spring Basics by Maja Design but this time I selected the beige tones for my background and I made the color balance with the flowers and the photo.  I took this photo of  my nieces playing with their fairy dresses a time ago.  These papers are beautiful in both sides, so I made some folder in the paper to let it see both patterns. I used a Prima mask to create the background effect. I'm Guest Designer at Scrapmatts   during this month and this beautiful frame is one of their chipboard.  You can see more of their products...

Tutorial- Creating Texture with a Die Cut Paper

Hello!! It's time to show you one of my tips to create textures, I love masks but if you don't have anyone you can create the same effect with a die cut paper. I have a Cricut Expression and a Cuttlebug, I love both and I created different die cut papers with them but this time I will show you how I did it with a Basic Grey- Die Cut Paper. This is my page with this technique... I made this page with the August Limited Edition Kit by My Creative Scrapbook. Let's get started it... I selected the "Ceremony" paper from the August LEkit and made a slit then I added a piece of the "proposal"  paper to cover the opening. I have this 12" by 12" die cut paper by Basic Grey and I used it by the backside like a mask. With a spatula I applied molding paste... It should looks like the photo. I gave a "V" form with the molding paste not even. Then carefully remove the die cut paper. You can see
