Creative Scrapbooker's VIP Club


Hello everyone! Kim here, happy to be on the Creative Scrapbooker blog again. Have you seen the “FOILED AGAIN” article in the spring issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine? It’s so awesome and so on trend! Foils are everywhere in the scrapbooking industry right now and so many ways to get the look. You can buy papers that are foiled, you can mimic the look with metallic embossing powders, there are lots of foiled stickers available and of course you can buy many products that use foil sheets.

My project was inspired by this feature article from the magazine. I love to add foil finishes to my projects with Therm-O-Web products. They have so many options for you to control the foiled look of your project, from toner sheets, adhesives, pens and transfer gels…and crazy amounts of foil colours to choose from!

My layout has a mixed media vibe to it, which I think plays well with the aloha spirit of the page. Mode Scraps’ Fly & Scrap paper collection, distributed through Elizabeth Craft Designs was used for the base of my layout, making it easy to give my layout a painterly feel! I tore a few longer strips of paper and adhered with some Dina Wakley Gel Medium. I also did some random scribbling/marking with my Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks. These were placed near where I was positioning my photo to create a strong focal point.

My favourite part of this layout was pulling out my Therm-O-Web Transfer Gel and spreading it through this lovely flower stencil from Clearsnap…I LOVE this stencil!

It’s important to patiently wait for the transfer gel to dry, honestly, this was the hardest part of the process! Once dry [an hour+/-] I took a sheet of Gina K Fancy Foils in Bubblegum, placed it shiny side up over the stenciled gel, sandwiched my layout between parchment paper and ran it through a hot laminator. Sometimes a second run through the laminator is required if areas were missed, but for this layout I was happy for it not to be perfect!

Once my photo was in place, I searched through my pens and found Kelly Creates Dream Pen in Coral to be the perfect pen for my journaling. The colour quietly tells my story while blending into the background!

Check out the FOILED AGAIN feature in our spring issue!
