A Wall Decor using I Love You Paper Pack

Hello friends,
I think by now you must have understood my style in paper crafting. It's all CAS (clean and simple)!
No matter how hard I try to layer and embellish my projects my hands stop cooperating with me and the project ends up being a CAS again. Lol.

And today, I am here with yet another inspiration project.  I keep making some Wall Decor Frames now and then because they make such a nice gift for friends and family. 
I started with thick White Card Stock and made a Shadow Box Frame with it. You can find several videos on YouTube which explain how to make this frame. You need be little careful with corners and patience is the key :)
Then I took out three patterns from the I Love You Paper Pack from Papericious and cut out 3 hearts from each. With the help of ruler I folded them into half and adhered to the frame. And that gives you that 3D look to hearts which you can see clearly in following pictures.

You can make a number of patterns like this. Hope you liked the project :)

Double Pocket Mini Album by Tanvi Shah

Hello Crafty people! I am back with my newest project share with you - A Double Pocket Mini Album. This is a good example of using Valentine theme paper packs all the year round. A am loving the clean & simple look of this mini album measuring 4x5" with scope for adding many pictures in both the pockets. 
I have put together a pictorial for this, hope you will give it a try.
For the base use a piece of Black Card Stock measuring 11 1/2 x 8", score it as shown in the image.
Next cut as shown below:
Mat all the sections with pattern papers of choice. I am using the I Love You Paper Pack. For the pockets trim black card stock to 5x3 1/2" & score at 1/2 & 1" along the shorter side.
Glue the 1/2"edge to the base as shown here
Glue this to the triangular folded edges to create the pocket.
Use either Velcro or magnets for the closures.
The inserts measure 4 3/4x3 3/4", 
I have used eyelets to hold 5 together. Use the pockets to hold chocolates, cards, gift cards, etc.

"LOVE" by Tina Ollett

Hello and welcome back today. Tina Ollett with you here all the way from sunny Queensland in Australia. We have been having an extreme heatwave at present and what better way to stay out of the heat than to create in the cool of airconditioning. 

 So this is what I did today. A little mixed media in my first pages of my Papericious Journal Book. You may remember a couple of months back I decorated the front cover. I didn't ever think that I would get to put anything in it of course, because that is what I usually do, but I surprised myself and got a little messy. I hope you enjoy it! 

My journal pages were primed with clear gesso and white gesso. I used the decoupage papers from The Queen tore sections and adhered to my layout to support the photo and also to mirror the layout on each side.

As you can see above and below are the lace flowers that I have coloured. These flowers are perfect for journal pages. They sit very flat and can also be coloured very easily. I used Distress Ink and water to colour mine.

  Lace White Blooms - Papericious Fabric Flowers

Wings - Papericious Collage Chippis

It is very difficult to see in these photos unfortunately but I have used the Pearl Pink Chalk Paint along with the Natural White to colour sections of the journal pages and also to change up the colours of the pearl centres.

Along with the lace flowers I have also added in some natural burlap and distress it somewhat.

Oh I so wish you could see the true colours of this project today.

And ......
I also have a little creative process recording for you !
Just click on the link below and it will take you straight there.

I do hope you have enjoyed my first ever journal page. I had a great time getting my hands dirtier than normal. Thank you for popping by. 

Happy Crafting
