Ревю на Spellbinders S5-215 – A2 Bracket Border Two

Това е може би най-детайлния от петте комплекта щанци за бордюри, които получих преди дни.
Започнах да изрязвам с по една от щанците в комплекта (общо са 6) – най-елементарната форма.
IMG_7215

Много лесно се центрира щанцата спрямо заготовката тъй като има специални засечки – ще ги видите по-надолу.

Следващата щанца реже и бордюр и декоративни елементи.

Следващия опит беше с комбинация обикновена щанца и по-къдрава щанца – къдравата също реже добре и се почиства лесно.

Рязането с две щанци едновременно се получава много лесно тъй като щанците влизат една в друга и лягат много точно.

При наслояване на хартиите трябва да се внимава да не стърчат някои от завойчетата.

IMG_7220

Това е опит с още една от режещите бордюр щанци – три режат бордюр и декорация, а останалите три само декоративната част без основния бордюр.

IMG_7222

Още една комбинация на две щанци. Тук се вижда как се настъпват двата бордюра и на горния лист ъгълчетата стърчат леко.

IMG_7223

Това е снимка на всички щанци подредени както влизат една в друга – виждат се и засечките за 4 1/4 инча ширина и за 5 1/2 инча ширина – цялата щанца  е с дължина 5 15/16 инча.

Могат да се ползват както за картички така и за страници на албуми, тагове, фото-матове и други декорации.

How to crate your own paper designs

Today I will show you how to crate your own paper designs.

You will need a copy machine, your choice of paper (it has to work with the copy machine by the way 😉 ) and some lace scraps (or feathers).

Just place the lace scraps in the copy machine and run your paper to create your perfectly own designs.

And remember – you can adjust the contrast and the brightness, you can zoom in or out, and you can also copy using black or color option – different results every time.

My samples:

Botanical Album – envelope album

Few months ago I saw a tutorial how to create an envelope mini album from Kathy Orta King. But when I decided to make one I realized that all my envelopes are smaller size. I found another tutorial Kathy Orta Style by Sara  that was the right size.

I used envelopes & cards value pack by Recollections and Botanicals 12×12 Value Paper Pack . I also used some charms and Shabby Wrinkled neutral colored Sandstone ribbon.

So this is the result

Stick pins for scrapbooking projects

I’m getting ready for my next project and I found out I need to make some stick pins. I love to prepare 10-20 at the same time and stock up for my future projects.

I have a great stash of beads, crystals and findings so I pick some of them to create my stick pins.

Take a look….

IMG_6569_1

… longer …

IMG_6555_1

… shorter …

IMG_6576_1

… and all together …

IMG_6577_1

Now I’m ready to use them – different sizes for different projects – cards, albums, boxes.

Let me know what you think and share your projects with stick pins.
