FSJ • Make Amazing Happen

Hi! I am back today to share a card that I created with  FSJ and RG products. I have to confess that this card was made from elements that I prepared for other cards but I did not use.  I always have a bunch of different elements piling up on my desk for a few days, before they can be re-purposed or discarded. It is funny how sometimes you can use those pieces for something else.

Anyways, to create the background I used a Sweet Berry Panel, and I flicked Silver Silk all over.  The Tag was made from Lemon Drop card stock and a  die set called Build a Tag Two from the Celebra’tions Collection by RG.   The sentiment is from a FSJ stamp set called Greeting Trends and it was simply stamped over a Whip Cream card stock  strip with Black Licorice Ink, and the left side was trimmed with scissors.

The little heart shape is from a Celebra’tions Die Set called Pierced Hearts. I die cut the piece from Lemon Drop cardstock, I added Journey Glaze and Journey Sparkle Dust over to make it shine.  The loops were created with LumberJack Jean Cord. I layered all the elements of this card onto a River Stone card stock card base and at the end, I simply embellished it with some Silver sequins. You can find the complete list of supplies at the end of this post.

As you can see, I do not always plan my projects. Some of them just happen to be already on my desk, waiting to be put together 🙂

RG Celebra’tions Shaker Card

From time to time I like to make cards without using any stamping. I rely on paper, die cuts, and some embellishments to create. The project that I am sharing today is a shaker card and I made it using just a few products from the Celebrations Collection by Richard Garay 🙂

mg_celebrations_loveumom9

To create this card I used a pretty patterned paper from the Celebra’tions Special Occasion 12 x 12 Prints. I also used the Pierced Hearts Die set to create the window, and the All You Die set to create the big sentiment.

mg_celebrations_loveumom4

 

Additionally, I used products by Fun Stampers Journey: Oatmeal Cookie cardstock, Hazelnut Blend cardstock, and Pink World Journey Sequins.

Besides all those fabulous products, I complemented my creation with regular white foam, gold sequins  and letter stickers that I bought at my local craft store.

mg_celebrations_loveumom3

Here are the steps to create this card:

1. Create a base card from Oatmeal Cookie cardstok.
2. Create a rectangular panel from patterned paper and from foam. Die cut heart shaped window on both.
3. Adhere foam panel over card base and place sequins inside the window.  Adhere a piece  of acetate over window.  Adhere patterned paper over foam panel.
4. Adhere a cardstock strip over card. Adhere letter stickers to make the word “mom”.
5. Die cut words from metallic yardstick and foam. Layer and adhere over card. Embellish with some sequins.

RG Celebra’tions Card

Hi! I am  back today to share a card using the Celebra’tions Collection by Richard Garay. I like a lot this collection because it has so many products that you can mix and match to create cards, layouts, party favors, etc. You name it! 😉

mg_celebrationscard2

To create this card I  made a card base with Cool Caribbean card stock. Then, I adhered a patterned paper rectangle on top as a background. I like the happy colors of the patterned paper of this collection!

Next, I used a stamp & die set called  Special Day  to create the main elements of my card. I stamped the balloon images using different colors of ink as well as the banners images (FSJ Banana Cream, FSJ Watermelon Fusion, FSJ Cool Pool, FSJ Huckleberry Fusion).

mg_celebrationscard4

After that, I die cut all the shapes with their matching dies, and I arranged them on top of a Whip Cream card stock rectangle. I adhered the balloons with some Journey Foam squares.  Additionally, I hand-draw the balloons strings and I stamped and die cut the sentiment.

Finally, I matted the panel with vellum paper, adhered it over the card base, and I embellished my project with some gemstones and Enamel Elements.

RG Celebra’tions Layout

Happy Wednesday!

Currently, one of my favorites collections by Richard Garay is Celebra’tions. I really like this collection because it includes a wide variety of products that you can use in many different type of projects. Today I am sharing a scrap booking page that I created using some of the products from this collection.

Last year, my husband and I took a day off from work, because it was our 26th Anniversary, and we wanted to do something special. So, besides having lunch together,  we went to visit a place called The Bahá’í House of Worship in Wilmette, IL. This place is amazing. I love all the beautiful decorative details of the construction and the peace that you can feel there. Of course, we took a few pictures, so I created  a scrapbooking page with some of them…

mg_celebrations_layout8

Many of my scrapbook pages include photo collages, just because it is faster for me to complete the pages.  I used Assorted Prints 12″ x 12″ Printed cardstock  to create the background of the page. I thought that the doilies of the patterned paper that I used kind of simulate the details of the temple.The title of the page was created with my Silhouette, and regular card stock. The journaling was typed with my computer and printed out on a strip of yellow vellum.

mg_celebrations_layout7

I created the banner with one of the shapes included in Banner Trio Die Set along with patterned paper and regular card stock. The golden hearts were made with one of the Pierced Hearts dies and a piece of metallic card stock.

mg_celebrations_layout6

The little tags were created with a Tag dies set by Fun Stampers Journey, and they were also stamped with sentiments included in Many Words stamp set and Sweet Treats stamp set using Berry Black and Captivating Coral True Color Fusion Inks.

mg_celebrations_layout5

The pretty flower shapes were created with the Enhanced Banner die templates along with patterned papers and card stock. Additionally, I included some Journey Color Buttons, gemstones and pearls by Fun Stampers Journey as the final touches of this page.

Even though, photo collages can take a big chunk of the space on your page, and limit the design itself, with different colors, patterned papers, embellishments and details you can make your pages look different from each other.
