New Mom Altered Notebook Tutorial with Mom To Be Collection

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new Papericious post.

This is Irit here from Irit Shalom's Designs and today I am going to share my " Coming Soon" altered notebook.

So here is this very small altered notebook and inside there pages for most of the pregnancy memories to add/ things to do/ etc.

First let me show you a few close- ups and then I will share a full (very long) tutorial.
This is how it looks from the front.

 An now to the tutorial.
This is an original  small notebook with tabs that I altered.

1. Cover the notebook with one of your favorite cardstocks from Mom to Be collection. Hand cut the  label and glue it over the cover. (Actually it's not to be much seen after all).

2. If you have banner dies- die cut the banner pieces with the largest and the second large banner dies.
If you don't own  any similar dies you can hand cut the banner shapes  that fit the notebook size.

3. Cut the weekly labels into strips. My notebook is a way too short for the full  length of the strips, so I shortened them and made some alterations with a few of them.

4.Add some Glossy Accents or another glaze medium over Papericious flower and add blue glitter over it.
This is an embossing glitter here, but I was afraid to destroy my last fabric flower while heating it with a heat gun, so I just used it as a simple glitter and let it dry.

5. Use clear embossing ink and the same blue embossing glitter and cover you chipboard pieces for the notebook cover.This time all chipboards are heat embossed.

6. Cut the cardstock banner and ink it with the ink in similar blue color. Heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

7.Now begin to arrange all pages, starting with the first one.
Glue your banners, add some hand cut labels and add a weekly strip on the right side of the notebook.
Leave one or two blank pages after each weeks for notes or photos or any other memorable things to add later.

8. Continue with later weeks in the similar , flat and easy way. Add some heat embossed chipboard over some pages as shown.

9. Add some circle pieces over other pages; use dies, punches or just hand cut the cardstock images.

Here you can see the week 24 strip that was altered as it was too long for the notebook size.

Add some cardstock die cuts for the interest, but remember that it should be totally flat after all if you want to close it later.

 10. Embellish the cover with a couple of die cut banners. Ink all edges with the same blue ink we used for the title.

11. Arrange the embellishments and the title over the cover as shown.Glue the lace that was cut into two parts from the both cover sides for the closure.
Add the blue jute cord for the interest.

 Enjoy your small altered project!
You can give is as a very personal present if you add the Mom's name on the cover.

Hello everyone!
How are you all doing? Erum here today from VIBGYOR Krafts.
I have a special project to share with you and a tip.
I have used Faiy Land papers again for my project! 
What can I say, the papers are beautiful in this pack and you keep on reaching for them!
Here is my project.

Papericious Fairy Land papers, project by @pr0digy0

 This is a table art that's going to my cousin's teacher.
She will get it framed with a stand and also a hanging option.
The two main roses are handmade. I wanted to give this a very winter-like effect.
The thing is, this paper pack is not winter-like at all! In fact it has yellows and greens, which gives it a very Spring like feel.

So what I did was, I gesso-ed it up to tone down the other colours a bit but not a lot so you can still see the beautiful floral pattern.
You can see in the above photo that I kept my hand very light at the application of gesso.
I also added some pink watercolour to the paper and lots and lots of glitter!!

And then there is this beauty - Moroccan Lattice chipboard.
I painted it with Picket Fence stain and sprinkled glitter over it.

That is all from my side today! I hope you liked my project.
I also hope you will find my technique helpful, if you ever want to tone down a pattern paper just apply a bit of Gesso.
Thank you for stopping by! 
If you have any questions, please leave them below.
You can follow my work on Instagram, I post regularly there.
hugs and love,


A Little Magic in everything Layout

Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new Papericious post.

This is Irit here from Irit Shalom's Designs and today I am going to share my " All about Me" layout.

 When I first saw this most gorgeous Fairy Land Papericious collection the first thing I thought was a " Fairy Door". I know that most of us are thinking Wedding and Girls and Spring and all other Fairy things. I thought that I need to make a page for myself, about myself and with myself as I am the one who believes in magic and fairies and all things between.
 So I spent quite a while to look for a photo that can be a kind of a Fairy door and I didn't find any.
So I was pretty much creative and I made collaged photo using two different photos- one was the window view and one was my photo  with ugly background. The window really looks as a Fairy window/door because of it's shape.
So I cut  my own image and glued it over the window with 3d foam glue and BINGO! I have a pretty photo that can be scrapped and the window shape is just perfect as it reminds the fairy door...(if you do believe in Fairies).
The page was made with a lot of dimension and layers.
I used one cardstock as the base of my layout and made a hand cut frame from another cardstock that was added with 3D foam glue over the base.
The title was die cut with oval stitched die from this collection sentiment cardstock and colored with Distress inks to fit the page.

Most of the embellishments were hand cut and added layers over layers on this page.
Here you can see the Brick chipboard piece, that was cut into 2 parts and inked with a bit of brown Distress ink.
Over the chipboard I layered hand cut leaves and flowers and Fairies were added  all over this page.
The sheet of cut out just "worked" extra hours... LOL

Here you can see the other side of the chipboard that actually was under the photo.

And more close- ups that show the dimension and layering of the elements.

I added  the cord frame using Jute cord  in natural color to connect the whole page together.

Layout with Fairy Land Collection!

This is Ujjwal sharing a layout I created using the gorgeous Fairy Land papers. The colors and elements were a perfect match for this particular photo of my daughter that was taken about 2 years ago.

I fussy cut out the element sheet from the collection and used those with dimensional adhesive as accents on the layout. Also added a bit of Ivory jute cord for some interest.

I also used a few different Chippis from Ohh Baby! and The Wedding and covered them with gesso before adding to the layout.

Also, added some of the collage sheet elements with dome stickers from older release.

I hope you like this layout and I will see you again next time!
