Watch the Killer Whales Overlay!

Susie here with a layout about a Killer Whale Watch excursion I enjoyed with my family last year. It features a laser cut overlay from Want2Scrap and one of the Chipboard Quotations!  This outing was one of the highlights of our trip to Alaska and the Whale 12x12 overlay was the perfect start to my scrapbook page!

The Whales Overlay comes with a white background paper.  The first thing I did was to adhere the laser cut outs of the whales to the white paper. Then I took out my craft knife and carefully trimmed around the outside edge of the whales and discarded the rest.
The first photo I added was one of a whale breaching! I used 1/8" "Tear-ific" Tape from Sparkle N Sprinkle on the backside of the frame to adhere the photo in place.
I chose this photo-realistic paper of the ocean to back the overlay.  It came with a double white border printed along the outer edge - such a nice detail!
I decided to accent that detail by trimming down the outside of the overlay so that it fit perfectly inside the border!  (I will admit that I purposely lined up the horizon line of my photo with the horizon in the paper!)

I heat embossed "The Best Day Ever" Chipboard Quotation with Red Glitter Embossing Powder.  It picked up the red from my pictures and really made the perfect title!
I take a lot of pictures so I often create multi photo collages on my layouts. I print my photos with a white border.  If you are unable to do that and want to get the same look, just double mat them with both white and black cardstock. I just play with the placement of the pics until I find an arrangement that works for me!
Suprise!  That center photo flips up to reveal one more picture

Dog Chipboard Embellishments

Candy here and today I want to share with you a couple techniques to create beautiful dog chipboard embellishments for your projects.  I created this adorable dog scene using Want2Scrap's Dog Chipboard Embellishment, a Doghouse Chipboard Shape, and a Fence Chipboard Embellishment.

To create the the Doghouse, using a pencil I traced around the different sections of the Doghouse on the design paper and scissor cut out the sections. I adhered the design paper sections to the chipboard with Dries Clear Adhesive.  To get an even more precise edge I then used a nail file along the edges of the Chipboard Doghouse.  I sponged Old Paper Distress Ink along the edges and inside the opening of the Doghouse to create depth and shading.  I then adhered the striped beige design paper to the back of the Chipboard Doghouse to cover the opening.

I heat embossed the Chipboard Dog and Chipboard Fence.  Before I started I covered each piece with Gesso.  For the Chipboard Fence I covered it with Clear Emboss It Ink and then added Weathered White Embossing Powder.  I tapped off the excess and heat set it.  To create the Chipboard Dog I covered it in Tree Branch Wendy Vecchi Archival Ink and added the coordinating Tree Branch Embossing Powder.  I tapped of the excess and heat set it.  Embossing chipboard creates a beautifully covered surface.

This scene I created is now ready to be added to a scrapbook page!

Senior Year Overlay

Susie here today and I am sharing a fun layout I created using the Want2Scrap Senior Year Overlay.

The overlay is designed so that there is a collage area all ready for your pictures.

I used the overlay as a guide to cut pictures to the right size and shape:.

I flipped it over and added 1/8" Double Sided "Tear-ific" Tape around the edges...

... and then pulled up the liner and adhered the photo.

I added the photos one at a time.  I had a lot of photos so I was able to completely fill in the collage.  If you don't have enough pics, you can fill in the open segments with coordinating patterned paper.

Then I  adhered the main photo and edged it with Sleek Strip 6" Rhinestones in black.
Here's a close up:

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie
