I am soooo excited to be part of Paper Made Bakery’s group of talented peeps this month! We are starting the month off with an inspiring hop around to everyone’s blog showing you this really fun kit for the first time! Then for the rest of the month I will be Guest Posting over on the Paper Made Bakery blog every Tuesday. I have a lot of fun projects created with the “One Scrappy Dame” kit to share with you and I can’t wait!
Shannon, the owner of Paper Made Bakery and I met years ago on the cape at Colorful Creations. She would visit the cape each summer and always manage to take a class or 2 with me 🙂 So we met up in July to catch up and say hello and she gave me my kit… I fell in love with it right away! I love the colors, papers, stamps and embellishments soooo much! I hope you enjoy the month and all the creations we have to share with you- Be sure to buy the current kit “One Scrappy Dame” so you can scraplift away! 😉 After you look over my project be sure to HOP on over to my friend Melissa’s blog. The full list of the designers participating in the HOP are here:
and of course you can HOP on back to Paper Made Bakery so you can purchase the kit!
OK. now for my project! I decided to create a fun, artsy notebook!
I took the die cut of the woman from the kit and glittered it up with some black ultrafine glitter- I LOVE how nicely it “glitzed” up! I used the polka dot border stamp from the set you get in the kit and embossed it in white all over the background of the notebook, which btw is some of the 6×6 papers from the Glitz paper pad. LOVING THIS technique of the white embossed on white.
Since the pattern paper is only 6×6 I needed to come up with a solution for covering the rest of the notebook. I had some ruffled crepe paper ribbon in my stash that was perfect for this! I used glue lines on the back and layered it 3 levels to fill in the bottom of the notebook.
I really loved playing with all the different embellishments and ribbons that are in the Paper Made Bakery kit. (note: the wood “hello” embellishment is from my personal stash)
To tie the book together from front to back I used Tim Holtz’s tissue tape. I laid it out on the cellophane bag that the kit came in and used blending foam to ink it up with Broken China Distress Ink. This really brought out the other teal elements and I just love it!
For the red gingham tag I used my pink Marvy tag punch and punched it out of the Glitz 6×6 paper pad that comes in the kit. I used my edge distresser to rough up the edges and then inked the edges with a little bit of Broken China and Vintage Photo Distress ink. I stamped the “you rock” from the stamp set included in the kit and stapled a little bit of ribbon on the end- when I added some of the glitz bling- it really finished it off perfectly! I also sprinkled some of the pearls from the kit here and there on the notebook…. snazzy right!? SO don’t you love all this product!? Make sure you go snag your own Paper Made Bakery kit NOW and come back on tuesday for more inspirations from me 🙂
