Spier Clearsnap

These are the last of the Spier layouts! The classes for Clearsnap were geared more to teach different techniques (I was amazed how little of the group have embossed before!!). We stamped, inked, embossed and painted! The letters on the Friends LO were coloured with the Smooch Inks - I LOVE the applicator bottle in the shape of nail varnish and the sharp pointed applicator makes it a breeze to use on fine detail elements! The colours are also really vivid and brightens your projects. The red and green looks absolutely stunning on Christmas products - will definitely incorporate them this festive season.

On SNOOZIN' we used roller stamps to create your own background paper to match your photo. As I live in close proximity to MANY - too many:) - scrapbook shops, this is not a technique I will really use to create my own paper, but the effect is marvellous, even on printed paper! We also used the technique to rollerstamp on vellum (the background for my Snoozin' title). The example was a 8x8 card with two vellum strips under the title - as I love putting my own swing on things I created a LO using the bits and pieces we created with the stamping technique. The dots in the flowers were created with purple Smooch - it just gives your page a tinge of colour - use sparingly as it can VERY quickly turn your page into a circus of colour! I painted purple Smooch photo corners on my paper (what a disaster!!) and designed the layout so I can quickly covered them with a lovely blossom and the "pretty little girl" saying!!
As the scrapbooking saying goes - Every mistake is an opportunity for creativity! (or an embellishment!!)
Happy scrappin'
