Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans!
With the weather finally changing outside, there seems to be more inspiration from nature, I thought it would be fun to create a spring project. Using the Stand Up Window Kit, a retro bike and flowers from Southern Ridge Trading Company, a few fussy cut images from Bo Bunny’s Butterfly Kisses Collection and a variety of different mediums from Ranger Ink, I was able to create this beautiful Spring Window. Make sure to grab a cup of your favourite beverage, as I show you how to recreate my Spring Window in the comforts of your own home.@csmscrapbooker @katelyngrosart @southernridgetrading @ranger @sbadhesives3L #csmscrapbooker #katelyngrosart #southernridgetradingco #ranger #scrapbookadhesivesby3L #dinawakley #timholzt @bobunny #bobunny #windownchipboard #bikekit #windowkit #bicyclechipboard #alteringchipboardTo start, you’ll need the Stand Up Window Kit from Southern Ridge Trading Company.  In this kit, you’ll receive the wood base, the wood stand up piece, a rock stencil with the window portion blank and the window with shutters and decorative top piece. Place the stand up piece on your craft mat. With the piece laid down, place the rock stencil over top and apply Texture Paste Opaque Matte using Palette Knife from Ranger Ink through the rock stencil from Southern Ridge Trading Company. Allow the texture paste to dry.Apply three coats of Hickory Smoke Distress Paint from Ranger Ink to both the stand up piece and the base. Allow the paint to dry.With the stand up piece dry, apply two to three coats of Black Soot Distress Paint from Ranger Ink to a variety of the rocks. Allow the paint to dry.Now that the rocks have dried. Put some Hickory Smoke Distress Paint from Ranger Ink onto your craft mat. With a small sponge, pick up some of the paint and lightly sponge over top of the rocks.Insert Use the Hickory Smoke Distress Crayon from Ranger Ink and rub the crayon along the edges of the base and stand up piece. Use your finger to blend the crayon into the edges of both pieces.Insert Apply two coats of Dina Wakley’s White Gesso from Ranger Ink to the window, the shutters and decorative top piece. Once the gesso has dried, apply two coats of Picket Fence Distress Paint from Ranger Ink over top of the now gesso’d pieces. Let all the window pieces dry.Insert Fussy cut a chandelier from Bo Bunny’s Butterfly Kisses – Sunlit paper. Once the chandelier has been cut out, adhere behind and in the middle of the window. Use the Hickory Smoke Distress Crayon from Ranger Ink and rub the crayon along the edges of the window, shutters and decorative top piece. Use your finger to blend the crayon into the edges of the pieces.Insert Apply two coats of Chipped Sapphire and Peeled Paint Distress Paint from Ranger Ink to the retro bike from Southern Ridge Trading Company. While the paint is drying, fussy cut two butterflies from Bo Bunny’s Butterfly Kisses – Sunlit Paper.With the paint dry, adhere two white roses and one black rose from Southern Ridge Trading Company to the basket of the bike. To finish off the basket area, adhere one of the butterflies to the left of the flowers. Cut the backs off of two small silver brads. Using Dodz from Scrapbook Adhesives By 3L,  adhere the brads to each of the spokes on the bike.Apply Thin 3D Foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L to the back of the window, the shutters and decorative top piece. Adhere the window, the shutters and  decorative top piece to the middle of the stand up piece where there isn’t rock.Using Glossy Accents from Ranger Ink, adhere the stand up piece to the base. Once the stand up piece and base have adhered to each other, use Glossy Accents from Ranger Ink and adhere the retro bike to the bottom right hand side of the stand up piece.The last element to adhere onto your spring window is the other fussy cut butterfly. Use a 3D Foam Square from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and adhere the butterfly to the top left hand corner of the window.Here’s the Spring Window with all of the elements adhered. I hope that I’ve inspired you to recreate my Spring Window at home.@csmscrapbooker @katelyngrosart @southernridgetrading @ranger @sbadhesives3L #csmscrapbooker #katelyngrosart #southernridgetradingco #ranger #scrapbookadhesivesby3L #dinawakley #timholzt @bobunny #bobunny #windownchipboard #bikekit #windowkit #bicyclechipboard #alteringchipboardSupplies Used
