Monochromatic image ❤ la-la land crafts

Hi!

This week's theme at la-la land is monochromatic image. I had quite a few problems with this challenge. I like adding different soft colours, so colouring in with just one colour was a bit of a problem. Well, I manage to make a card. I hope you'll like it. ;)


Distress markers used:
tea dye, black soot

Tilda with bow berett ❀ I am roses

Hi!

I can't believe it's the middle of another month and time for another challenge over at I am roses challenge blog. Our theme is Anything goes, as usual. :)


For my dt project I decorated a craft gift bag. I used one of the new Magnolia stamps from Sakura collection (Tilda with bow berett) and masked her with Tin boxes (A Little Yummy For Your Tummy Collection). I bought this stamp probably more than 2 years ago, but I think this is the first time that I used it. It's really big and doesn't fit on to my standard (rather small) cards.


 I coloured in both stamps using my distress markers and spectrum aqua markers.



Dies used on this gift bag:
Scalloped Trim Banner Die - la-la land crafts
Heart Banner Die - la-la land crafts
Heart Doily Border Die - la-la land crafts
doilies - Cherry Lynn
leaves - Prima marketing

I must admit I first heard of G45 when I saw my teamie Arlene got into their dt. I checked their website and fell in love with them. I ordered papers from Precious Moments collection, but I'm sure I'll order others too soon. :)

Tutorial thursday ❤ la-la land



Hi!

Today it's my turn to share a little tutorial with you all. I made a small Baby girl gift bag. I saw this bag on fb some time back and really wanted to make it myself and decorate it with my gorgeous la-la land dies. So, here we go ...


For this bag you'll need:
- white cardstock
- design paper
- ribbon

la-la land dies:

Step 1:
Cut 20x30cm of white cardstock and make folds with your scoring board according to the sketch below.


Step 2:
Make folds


Step 3:
Take your white cardstock and cut out two 9,7x9,7 cm squares. Then you take your design paper and cut out two 9,4x9,4 cm squares. Use any kind of glue and glue design paper on to white cardstock.


Step 4:
Make die cuts with your la-la land dies. As you see some die cuts are cut out twice or three times. I like to glue them on top of each other to make them stand out and add more dimension to my projects.


Step 5:
I put all my die cuts on my bag before I glue them on to see if I need to change or add anything.


Step 6:
Glue together parts of the bag (as shown on the picture) and make holes for ribbon.


Step 7:
Take all the die cuts and glue them on the bag. Then put the top and the bottom of the bag together and bind them with ribbon and make a bow.



Here's the final project:


That's it from me today. Have fun!
Hugs,
Tamara
