Hello there, It’s Zinnia! I hope you are well. Here’s my layout for today.

 

I created this layout just by using ONE  stamp, which is the cloud. Of course, it turned out pretty amazing. I’m in love with this layout. It’s pretty simple (only the coloring part is tough :P)

 

Anyways, more close-up shots for you…

 

 

Here,  I labeled it by using Gossamer Blue stamps.

 

 

I hope you can try this out and show me on Gossamer Blue’s Facebook Group!

 

 

 

Creating Pocket Cards

0 Comments

Hello! It’s me, Kasia, and today I would like to share with you some ideas for making your own pocket sized cards. Don’t get me wrong, I love ready made cards and I use them all the time, but when I saw May Main Kit I was so amazed by all the patterns and papers that I wanted to make my own cards.

I also used the incentive alphabet stamp set – love it and plan to use it as often as possible. When making my own cards I used three different techniques, here’s what I did.

Supplies: May Main Kit

The simplest idea is to cut the patterned paper to the desired size 3×4 or 4×6 and add some white cardstock to create the journaling spot. By this you get something really simple looking, so I think a little ephemera goes a long way. I chose stickers and thickers that fit the topic I was writing about.

This time I used plain white cards and embellished them with stripes of washi tape. You can add it vertically or horizontally. I prefer to add it at the bottom or top of the card so I have plenty of space for journaling. Yet again,adding some stickers and thickers is a good idea.


The last idea is to use stamps. I have to tell you I had lots of fun making these. I chose two letters and stamped them repeatedly to create a pattern. Then added some die cuts and created little journalling spot.

And here’s a bonus idea! The last idea is a mix of the previous ones. It involves stamps and some watercolours. I dug out my gelatos, added a hint of colour here and there, stamped the cross pattern and voila. You can add some coordinating embellishment to make it even more fun.

Thats all 🙂 I hope you like those ideas. Have fun creating

Scissors are a Scrapbooker’s Best Friends

Hello, dear friends and welcome to the Gossamer Blue blog today. It’s me, Sandra, and I would like to share a scrapbook layout that I created with the beautiful flower paper and embellishments from the exclusive GB May Main Kit. Are you ready? Because I would like you to get out your scissors and do some cutting today.

For today’s layout I cut out the title ‘that’s me’ and also the cute little triangles you will find at the top and at the bottom of the layout. I encourage you to cut out letters and shapes with your scissors, because I think it’s fun and you can add really personal and customized details to your creative projects.

Before I end this post, I would like to say a few words about the photo I used on the layout.

On my latest weekend trip to a beautiful island here in Germany that I went on with three other girls, we had a photo shooting with straw hats. And because we had such a fun time playing around with the camera, I really want to remember the great time we had. So I decided to create a playful layout around the photo by using the hand cut title and the triangles. 

 

I hope you like my inspiration today. Have fun crafting.
