Vintage Pumkin ATC

Hi there!  It's officially autumn these days and it makes me crave the pretty and warm colors of the season.  Time for an ATC project that brings a little fall indoors.

Using products from Want2Scrap and our partners, Sakura and Beacon Adhesives, I was able to craft up a pretty ATC sized wall hanging.  The vintage label was a free download from the Graphics Fairy blog.  The black and orange bling from Want2Scrap make a pretty border when lined up along the top and bottom of the label.

A painted layer of Crystal Laquer from Sakura over the vintage label gives it a glossy finish and makes the ATC more durable so it will last for many autumn seasons to come.
What are you making this autumn?

Walk in Faith

Hello, friends! Nina here again with one of the new Want2Scrap Summer CHA release, along with some old favorites. I used the beautiful Garden Motif - Silhouette as a backdrop on my card. The gorgeous papers, including the stickers, are by Authentique (Carefree Collection). It coordinates very well with the Want2Scrap dark silhouettes.
The word "Faith" is Want2Scrap's Chipboard Sentiments- Words of Love. I accented it with the bling swirl from B.Y.O.B. 1 Build your own Bling - Donna Salazar Design. the small word stickers are from the Authentique paper collection.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the week!

Thank You


AJ here to share a quick and easy thank you card dressed up with the Beautiful Bling Borders from Want2Scrap.

 For my card, I scored the plaid patterned paper with my Scor-Buddy from Scor-Pal.  After adhering it to the card, I added the newest Bling Borders from Nina Brackett.  I love how much bling this adds in one quick strip! ;)
I stamped the sentiment, rounded the corners, and finished it off with a little ribbon ruffles and another Baby Bling in Black.

A Cloud 9 Kind of Moment

The moment when your child reaches over and just wants to hold your hand...  nothing can compare to that!
 I used the new papers from Want2Scrap and Susan K. Weckesser to create this soft and clean layout.  Photos like this just HAVE to be the star!
By trimming the clouds and butterflies from the paper, and pairing them with a title from the new Retro Birds Chipboard from Joe Rotella, this layout came though with just the look I wanted for this photo.  Thanks for taking a peek!  I hope you'll check out the newest Want2Scrap™ products today!

Life's Little Lessons

Hello, Terre here with another album for your viewing pleasure! This album was created using the Grand Series Chipboard Album Labels Twenty-Three from Want2Scrap. Look real close.... do you see that beautiful paper? Guess what you can also find that at Want2Scrap, it is the new line of designer paper from Susan K. Weckesser.
It is fun to hand trim pieces from the pattern paper and pop them up to add dimension.

Did you know that you could use the Nestabling with out having the coordinating die template, see just look how amazing the Nestabling Pearl Scalloped Hearts look on this page.
If you haven't noticed there is a stamped sentiment on each page, some of them are words from the heart others are just an encouraging thought. This album is an inspirational album filled with special feelings, it was amazing how perfect the paper, bling and chipboard accents from Want2Scrap made this album come together.
Don't you just love how these Antique Keys and Keyholes - Silhouette make the pages just pop, add a few 72 Count Hot Pink Rhinestones and wow just look at them shine! 
                                                      See just look at that bling!
This page just screams fun, I think we all should just go paint the town red, what do you think?
This page reminds me that no one could ever take my mom's place, and I hope that my own children feel the same way about me. The Chipboard Charlies Birdcage Silhouette makes me think of my children who have left home and my little one who is still part of the nest. I know crazy right?
Just look at all that pretty swirly bling, I think it just goes with everything! Don't you?
You can create a page just by trimming pieces and popping them up just like the flowers and the bird, add some B.Y.O.B. 2 (build your own bling) Donna Salazar Design to make it look like the bird is flying...just perfect!
I hope you have enjoyed this mixed media album and I encourage you to create one of your own, we would love to see what you create, just send us a picture on Facebook! Crafty smiles,

I used Want2Scrap's Beige Rose Ribbon 1" to embellish the seam binding bow. A little swirl from Beautiful Bling Borders-Endless Waves! finishes the card.
Enjoy your week!

Call me, maybe card

Hello!  Today I am using Nikki Sivils Messages collection kit as for the theme of my card.  The circle tag with "call me" repeated around the end soon had me punching out individual letters to spell out "maybe" below.  Have you heard that popular song?  I thought this card would be a fun way to reach out to a friend by using this popular song lyric to catch their eye.


3D Crystal Effects from Sakura Hobby Craft was used to give a dimensional shine to the punched letters spelling out "maybe".

The manila tag was popped up on foam tape.

The foam tape called U-Cut-It® 4x4 from Glue Arts is great for making your custom sized piece of adhesive.  Just cut and apply.  Voila!

Mixed Media: Color to the Max by Want2Scrap!

Fall is just around the corner and soon the leaves will be changing and and colorful leaves will be falling from the trees. My first project this month is an altered canvas using fall as my inspiration...greens, oranges, and a little pink for good measure. I really blinged my projects out this the shine it can bring to any creation. 

Just because it is almost fall does not mean a flower can not be the object of my art. I cut seven circles and easily made this fun flower. 

At the center of my flower are several Blue Rose Ribbon 1". Adds a great texture! One of my favorite products are the Beautiful Bling Borders. The Fancy waves are so fun!

Of course the must use on every project is the bling! I used the Pink Rhinestones - 72 Count. These really are a must have in every color. I used them on EVERY SINGLE project I do.

Next up a few new pages in my art journal. Since color was my focus I decided to make my pages about it. 

I used Faber-Castell Gelato to create the rainbow background. These are super simple. I used Gesso as a base for each page, colored on the gelato, brushed on water and a gorgeous watercolor based background was the result.

This gorgeous Small Pearl White Flower just pops from the page with this colorful background.

I use the Sleep Strips - White Pearls almost as often as I use the bling. It is a staple in my craft room.

The White Pearl Swirls and Bling Hearts are so versatile and can work on anything. I hope you are now feeling inspired to do a little creating of your own.

So Grateful

Happy Sunday-
AJ here to share another card using Want2Scrap's Baby Bling and Finesse Swirls.

I love these Finesse Swirls- As you can see, I customize them all the time.  I trim pieces off and use them here and there- there is always the perfect size swirl for whatever project you are working on.   I dressed up the die cut with a few Baby Bling in Pink.

Best Girlfriends

Hello, Want2Scrap friends! Today, I am sharing a layout about one of my favorite subjects...girlfriends. Girlfriends are there when you want to celebrate, want to cry, or just need someone to listen. This is a photo of my friend, Elaina, and I celebrating her birthday. You can even see the cupcake icing on her face :)
A girlfriend layout wouldn't be complete without some fabulous Want2Scrap bling.  I just love the Beautiful Bling Borders by Nina Brackett - Beautiful Blooms.  It adds an elegant, girly touch to any project.  I even added some bling to those cute shoes.
Are you wondering about this adorable paper collection?  It's Nikki Sivils "Audrey" collection.  Who says big girls can't have fun with this collection?
Another one of my Want2Scrap favorites...these amazing chipboard sentiments.  The cursive font is just beautiful and I've painted them with Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer and Terri Sproul Jewel Effects Powder. Mixed together, these products create a lovely, glistening paint the covers chipboard perfectly.
Thanks for visiting the blog today.  Check out all of the fabulous Want2Scrap products HERE.

Hi, it's Nina here with another Want2Scrap card. I paired my favorite bling with Niki Sivils papers  (Exit Here collection) and Spellbinders dies (my brand new licensed design called Homespun).

I love the bright colors of this collection that make me feel more summery, even though fall is just around the corner. The mason jar is from Spellbinders' Homespun set. I embossed and stenciled the designs on it with some Clearsnap inks. The sentiment is from The Craft's Meow's Stitched Sentiments set. It's framed with the gorgeous Want2Scrap's Nestabling Fancy Tags Two White Pearl.
The card is embellished by a paper doily, seam binding and Want2Scrap's Red Rose Ribbon 1" that you can see up close here.
I hope you have a wonderful day. I have another Niki Sivils card for you next week!
