When to stop and when not to? by Christy Riopel January always makes me a little introspective and I tend to scrapbook more interpersonal stuff this time of year. I created this layout about dealing with the old(er) girl in the mirror these days. SUPPLIES: FabScraps pattened paper and chipboard, Aladine Izink inks distributed by Clearsnap, May Arts ribbon, Impression Obsession stamps, ColorBox Surfacez ink by Clearsnap, Spellbinders dies and Grand Calibur die cutting machine, Dymo Label Maker, Ranger Industries gel pen, Beacon Adhesives. It ended up being an exploration in not just one hard question ( when did I get this old?) but in another unrelated question I often face….. When do I stop? When is enough on a layout? Here is a picture of what It looked like when I first thought it was done.    Not that I was unhappy with it but I just felt it needed more.…

Hello Everyone!  It’s Kelly here today to share with you a Christmas card I designed using beautiful FabScraps papers.  Have you made any cards this year?  I don’t know how it’s already December, and I have been trying to finish off a few more cards. The hanging ornaments are FabScraps chipboard that I altered with a FabScraps stencil and Viva Décor Ferro, which is like a grainy molding paste with a metallic finish. I first painted the chipboard ornaments with white gesso. Then I used this FabScraps stencil and applied the Viva Décor Ferro with a palette knife. When you lift off the stencil, you see a really cool 3D metallic pattern. Just let dry for a few minutes. It dries very quickly! Using May Arts ribbon, I finished off the ornaments and card. This will be my last post until the new year….so even though it’s early, I wish…
