Home Sweet Home | Family Fun | Tarrah McLean

It's Tarrah McLean back with you today to share a new layout I have created using the beautiful Elle's Studio 'Family Fun' collection!

To begin this layout, I pulled out all the grey and blue elements including papers, ephemera, puffy stickers, acrylic shapes and journal cards. I arranged my photo and the journal cards into a design I was happy with.

Before I adhered them all down, I added some machine stitching to create some added interest and texture. I like how the stitching creates a border around each too. The banner I made in the top right, I also machine stitched through and curled up the bottom of the banners for some dimension. 

Once my photo and journal cards were adhered, I then embellished my layout using the puffy stickers, wood veneer pieces, acrylic shapes and ephemera. The Home Sweet Home title I used foam adhesive underneath to raise it off the page. 

I love that the journal card on the right, left me an area to add some of the things we are currently loving!

If you don't have the Elle's Studio Family Fun collection, I urge you to grab it from the Sassy store now! Its so fun to create with! I am loving it!

Little Things Make Big Days by Farrel Tailor

Hello Everyone, Farrel here to share with you all a mixed media layout I created using some pretty awesome products. I have linked all the products I have used to the Sassy Scrappers Store throughout the blog for your convenience. 

So let me show you how I created this quick and easy scrapbooking layout.

I started off by applying a very thin coat of gel medium to my white cardstock and dried using my heat gun. I then applied Prima Color Philosophy Dye Ink - Apricot by swiping the ink pad directly onto my cardstock. I then sprayed a little amount of water to let the ink move around until I was happy.

Once it was dry I then splattered 13arts Pastel Caramel Ayeeda Mist and dried again with my heat gun.

Next I stamped Prima Color Philosophy Dye Ink - Foggy Nights onto my craft mat and added some water. Using a paint brush I applied the ink to my layout. So that nothing was wasted, I used the left over ink to splatter onto my layout.

I loved how this particular colour went from a grey and then while it was drying it change to have a under tone of purple. Which I thought was pretty cool!!!

I then cut a photo mount using Pink Fresh Studios Escape the Ordinary pp - Observe as well as some of the shapes. I used my water pen and the Foggy Nights ink pad to brush the ink around the edges of my shapes and the photo mount.

I adhered all the elements onto my layout and then choose 3 stickers from Pink Fresh Studios Escape the Ordinary sticker sheet and inked around the edges again using Foggy Nights.

And there you have it, I simple mixed media scrapbooking layout. I hope you have enjoyed this and can't wait to share with you again next time.

Pocket Pages with Agnus | Elle's Studio Family Fun

Hi again :) I'm back with another share from my project life album using the Elle's Studio 'Family Fun' collection.

I kept the layout design clean and simple and let the bright happy colours do the work for these pages.

As always I began the month with a layered title card - combing several paper and cardstock elements with some simple alpha stickers and one of the fun sayings from the puffy stickers.

 More puffy stickers over my photo and a little bit of detail onto one half of the background with a white opaque pen were all that was needed to dress up one of my 6x4" cards and because I liked the look of the diagonal look so much, I repeated it on several of my cards by combining some of the patterns from 6x6" paper stack with designs from the full 12x12 sheets. 

A couple of cute puffy hearts and my favourite date stamp helped to complete the card. 

Using one of the tags from the bits & pieces pack over a small patterned background created a fun filler card to mark the start of the school holidays.

I mirrored the page design from the first page onto the second week to help the pages flow and I especially liked how the 6x4" cards with the diagonal design worked across both pages. 

I decided to cut all of my 3x4" photos a little bit smaller so that I could add more colour onto the page with the patterned backgrounds in each pocket and as always I printed my larger pics with a white border to help them pop on the busy backgrounds. 

I always shuffle things around quite a bit before sticking anything down, and I am happy with how the black and white elements helped to balance out all of the colours.

Family Fun | Elle's Studio Family Fun | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean joining you again today and I have a brand new layout using one of the brand new collections now in the Sassy store! It is the super pretty Family Fun collection by Elle's Studio!

I honestly did not know where to start with my layout this week as this collection is awesome! I pulled out this background paper and was immediately inspired to add some circular elements to go with the circles already printed on the paper. The thin strip of paper down the left hand side is the manufacturer strip, I trimmed it off the bottom of the paper as I love those stripes!

The 2 flair buttons I have used on this layout were not included in this collection, they just come from my evergrowing stash! My favourite thing from this collection are those super cute acrylic shapes. I just adore those colours and the cute shapes! 

Thanks so much for stopping by the Sassy blog today! Stay tuned for more layouts by me using this collection coming up over the next couple of weeks!

Get your Family Fun collection from the Sassy store now!

Happy creating!
