Flip Flaps and Something Fierce

I am loving Something Fierce, January's featured paper collection! Here is another Deluxe Workshop Your Way layout. This is the left hand layout with a 6"x 12" flip flap option available with this workshop.

You create the left side 12" x 12" layout with a smaller half size layout which looks like your layout is bigger!

You actually have two half size layouts as you will have a back side to the front side 6" x 12". A great way to add more photos to a layout.

And the left side of the layout is a pocket page, giving you even more photo and journaling options.

More Card Caption FUN

Finishing off projects is a goal for 2019, so I grabbed a card front I created earlier (retired products) and add it to a card base.

And January's Stamp of the Month was perfect to finish this project. I added a little FUN to the inside and envelope

A great stamp set for a new project, an old project, just about any project you have in mind.

The Something Fierce deluxe scrapbooking workshop focuses on a variety of stamping techniques, as well as adding pocket cards and Flip Flaps™ to your layouts. Use the materials in this kit to create 3 two-page layouts and 1 single-page.

Here is the first single page layout. It was fun adding a random stamped section at the top of the layout.

Adding the twine using a small bead of liquid glass keeps the twine in place.

Placement of embellishments across a photo is FUN, just remember, if you have not chosen a photo, put adhesive on the side that will not be atop the photo.

 Something Fierce is the first featured paper collection of the NEW 2019 Seasonal Expression 1.

It is full of BRIGHT colors and FUN dinosaurs and polka dots and stripes and so much more.

You may think it is for boys or a would be best for a child's page or card BUT wait, it has a sophisticated palette that would work with so much more.

Words to Stamp By

That is what I think of when I look at January 2109's Stamp of the Month, Card Captions (S1901).

The lovely sentiments and different fonts make this a MUST HAVE for the cardmakers!

And just a few images thrown in give you options for the inside and envelopes for those beautiful cards you will create.

My first project used the leftovers from the butterfly stencil I created for a card shared a few months ago. I used the butterfly cutouts to create a cascade of movement with a few sparkles added, cause you can never have enough sparkle.

The sentiment was stamped in White Daisy Pigment ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.

What else goes with cascading butterflies? Of course, sunshine and rainbows. Add a few flowers along the edge of envelope, yes this stamp set has everything you will need.

And you can get it for $5 with a qualifying purchase!! Check out the new Seasonal Expression 1 Idea Book, goes live today, January 1st, and your copy of the Idea Book will be added to your order FREE!
