Hello Crafty Friends! It’s me, Fairuz Fabiha here from Craftivation. Sweater weather has already arrived and maybe you are here reading this blog with a warm cup of coffee but we all know that nothing can feel warmer than our “Home, Sweet Home” in this weather with little touches of The Robin’s Nest Dewdrops! I love Fall. The gorgeous colors of fall have always inspired me to incorporate those colors on my projects. So being inspired by those amazing colors, today I’ll be sharing with you, how I created this stunning faux wood mixed media wall-hanging home decor! Oh, that was a bit of a mouthful, lol! Step by step process: At first, I cut three strips of cardboard of the same length and width. Punched some holes for tying rope afterward.  Covered the cardboard strips with tissue paper to add wooden texture. Painted the strips with dark brown paint to give it a…

MulltiCraft Forever in Time was the starting point for my “Happy Memories” 12X12 scrapbook layout. Who can resist a jar full of flowers? I was feeling a bit playful in my studio and these charming  MultiCraft Forever in Time bottles filled with flowers were the inspiration for my whimsical vision. To build my base layer I stamp some Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink on a non-porous surface (plastic sheet)  then I spray some water on the ink. After you spray the ink with water you pick up the plastic sheet and dab it onto the paper. I dapped one colour at a time. I like the look of tone-on-tone so using the same colour of Ranger Oxide Inks and the MultiCraft Forever in Time floral stamps I stamp a variety of flowers on top of the background. I always like to add in small details and doodles to my…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with a quick scrapbook layout I put together using Glue Dots adhesives and Wild Whisper patterned paper.  My oldest son absolutely loved to read when he was growing up, and so the book-themed ‘Add a Chapter’ patterned paper line was perfect.  Wild Whisper is a Canadian company based in Calgary. I just cut strips of the patterned paper and stuck them all together with my Glue Dots adhesives – I used the permanent glue tape to adhere paper to paper, and permanent ultra-thin dots to attach the wood veneer gear shapes.  The wood shapes came from the dollar store, and I just painted them with Ranger black gesso to make inexpensive embellishments. I also tucked in an old dictionary page under the patterned paper.  If you have old dictionary’s laying around, be sure to check out the upcoming winter issue of Creative Scrapbooker magazine for…
