Scrap lifting from our Pinterest boards!

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2Hi everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! This week, the Design Team  we are scraplifting a project from the Paper House Productions Pinterest board, and I chose this one from fellow team member Tinagale Husong! 🙂  I love altering things, so when I saw this from Tinagale, I was inspired to make one for my Christmas Decor using the ‘Christmas Joy’ collection!

 

25
I started by painting my embroidery hoop a deep green to match my theme. Once that was dry, I cut ‘Christmas Joy’ paper and acetate paper to fit the back of my hoop!  I also took the ‘ornament’ packaging from the Christmas Flake Stickers and used it as an embellishment on here!

And here is Tinagale’s embroidery hoop that I scrap lifted!

Fun with fussy cutting!

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2

Hi everyone! 🙂 Julie with you here today, sharing a layout I made! I used the “Paradise Found Florida” collection on my page! 🙂

 

As you can see above in the collection, one of the papers has Palm Trees on it — I fussy cut the palm trees from the paper and used it on my page to create part of my background 🙂 By fussy cutting the palm trees out from paper, I was able to have places throughout my page to tuck in my photo and other embellishments!

And even those these are the “Florida” papers, I easily used this collection for my photo that was taken in San Diego, California 🙂

 

 

 

 

Making the paper work for you!

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2Hi everyone! Julie with you here today sharing a little tip on how to OVERCOME your fear of using certain papers!

If you are like me, you look at ‘photo’ background papers and get a little intimidated! If you add your photos to it, you will lose part of that background, or if you add them to certain parts of the paper, then you feel you are limited to what you can add!

31.jpg

I started out with these papers from the The Great Outdoors – Camping Collection – and while I LOVED that photo themed paper on the right, how was I going to add my things to it, without losing the depth of the paper!??! Well — I CUT OUT what I wanted from the paper of course!

30

Once you have fussy cut the paper, you can easily assemble your photos UNDERNEATH the cut out parts and keeping the integrity of the design!

35

Once you have your photo(s) in place and the piece that you cutout placed just right – you can adhere it and then finish your page!

So next time you are intimidated by photo background paper, just give this a try!

 

 

Autumn Woods Travel Mini Album & Giveaway Winner

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2It’s a beautiful fall Monday and our team is ready for another week of fun creating!  Julie joining you today and  I made a quick little travel album for an upcoming Fall day trip the family and I will take!  Be sure to stick around to the end of the post to check out who the winner was from our Blog Hop last week!  Now let’s dive into my Autumn Woods Travel Mini Album

Autumn Woods Travel Mini Album

14
Supplies Used:  Autumn Woods Planner Stickers, Autumn Woods Washi Tape, Wicked Good Patterned Paper, Autumn Woods Patterned Paper

15

I kept things simple focusing on pretty patterned papers and simple stickers.  I can always add more after i add my pictures in.

16

I used a cut-apart page from the Autumn Woods collection so I had space to add journaling.

17

Using washi tape from the collection was an easy way to add a coordinating border and change up the look of the patterned paper.  It’s just translucent enough that it shows some of the patterned paper from behind it which also adds a nice touch.

Hi everyone! Julie here with you today sharing what I created with some awesome Tombow Twintone dual-tip markers along with Paper House Productions ‘Wicked Good’ collection.

Since I was using a photo of my daughter’s Halloween costume from 2015, and it wasn’t your ‘typical’ Halloween colors, I grabbed the Paper House Productions acetate web paper from ‘Wicked Good,’ and then took four of the Tombow markers and colored in all the white areas of the acetate paper to match her costume!

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2Hi everyone! Julie here today with a project I made using the ‘Autumn Woods’ collection!  I found these little glass jars at an antique store, and I knew I wanted to dress them up for Fall!  Let’s take a look at my Autumn Woods Altered Jars.

And here is what I turned them into!  I used various stickers from Autumn Woods as well as patterned paper to decorate the jars.

The little woodland creatures add a nice touch to the collection.  The puffy stickers were a great way to add some dimension to the project.

I lined the top with a rice paper border that has beautiful foiling on it.  Next time you are at  store and see a cheap, plain jar; grab it!  Make it your own with your paper crafting supplies.

 

Autumn Woods Scrapbook Layout

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2

Hi everyone! Julie here today sharing a layout I made using the gorgeous ‘Autumn Woods’ collection!  Fall is my favorite season, which is pretty funny, since I live in Arizona, and it feels like ‘summer’ here for 6 months out of the year, so I do live for those cooler ‘Fall’ days we have here! Because it is my favorite season, I have always gravitated towards Fall themed scrapbook papers, and the ‘Autumn Woods’ collection is seriously my fave! The colors are gorgeous and I love the designs! Let’s take a look at my Autumn Woods Scrapbook Layout

A few years ago, we visited the Ronald Reagan museum in Simi Valley, California.

76In the museum, they have a real Air Force One airplane that you can walk through.  It was pretty awesome walking through one!

 

I colored the butterfly stamps red and blue to match my papers and photo!

I used stamps from My Sentiments Exactly to decorate my page further, coloring in those pretty butterflies with patriotic colors.80

Julie Tucker-Wolek Circle 2

Hi everyone! Julie with you here today to share an altered project I made using a Paper House Craft Set! These are so fun and easy to use!I started with this “B,” that I found at an antique store! I painted it  and tused the Baby Girl Craft Set to add some fun!

And here is what I turned this “B” into!  This is for a decor item for my daughter Brookie.67

I added some 3D Stickers to decorate the letter a little more.69

Adding her name to the spools was a great way to add some detail.71

It all came together to make a beautiful addition for my daughter’s room.74

These are so easy to apply and I really loved how this turned out (and so does my daughter!)  It is self adhesive, and it I love how smoothly it went on my project!
