Sticker set ST92 002
Carder’s Pack MC92 001A

Other: stamping inks, ‘Freedom’ stamp by Finnabair, gouache paints, paper clip, googly eyes, hot-glue gun, 2-sided tape, laminating pouches and laminator

Instructions:

A5 DIVIDER

STEP 1:
From Flutter Shine paper C92 001 cut out an A5 size rectangle. From the ‘word’ side of the same paper, cut out some phrases to be added to the front of the divider later. Ink the edges of the strips.

STEP 2:
Using the stamping inks and the Stencil DS 064 C92 range transfer the OWL designs onto the divider. Make sure that you outline the shapes with black pen, too.

STEP 3:
Using the double-sided tape, attach the phrase strips on the divider.

It’s ready to be laminated and to have the holes punched!


SMALL/TODAY DIVIDER

STEP 1:
From one of the papers in the Carder’s Pack MC92 001A, cut a 6”x2” rectangle. Add one of the stickers from the Sticker set ST92 002 and stamp out the ‘Freedom’ phrase in black. It’s ready for laminating!

STEP 2:
Paint one of the owls from the Chipboard die-cut 3 OWLS DC92 008 with gouache paints. Glue it onto the laminated divider and add googly eyes.

Punch the holes and it’s ready!

PAGE MARKER

From the Carder’s Pack MC92 001A, pick two owl die-cuts. Place them opposite one another to resemble mirror-reflection in the laminating pouch. Once laminated, fussy cut and fold over to create a page marker.

PAPER CLIP

Paint the remaining two owls from the Chipboard die-cut 3 OWLS DC92 008 with gouache paint. Once dry, hot-glue the paper clip to the ‘back’ owl; add more glue and add ‘front’ owl. Add googly eyes.

Your owl paper clip is ready.


Enjoy your owl-themed planner set!

by EWELINA GRYGLAK




For this tag you will need:
Carder’s Pack MC912 001
Chipboard die-cut BEST FRIENDS DC92 003
Stencil DS 063
Other: watercolour tag, texture paste, green and amber gouache paint, white acrylic ink, black pen, glue, mulberry flowers and leaves

Instructions:

STEP 1:
Your base the white watercolour tag. From a chosen paper from the Carder’s Pack, cut out a slightly smaller tag that you will glue onto the base tag. I traced the original tag on the paper and then cut it 2mm from the inside line. With black pen, outline the smaller tag; then distress its edges. Glus the tags together. This is your first layer.

STEP 2:
Using Stencil DS 03 and texture paste, add ‘leaves’ design on the background. Using green paint, create watercolour-like effect over the stencilled area. Add sprinkles of darker green around the tag; do the same with the white acrylic ink.

STEP 3:
Tear off pieces of papers from the Carder’s Pack to create a small cluster; outline some of the straight edges with black pen.

STEP 4:
Colour the Chipboard die-cut BEST FRIENDS to match your colour theme (I ‘watercoloured’ it with amber and green paint). Leave it to dry.

STEP 4:
Attach the paper cluster and chipboard to the tag; decorate with mulberry flowers.

Your tag is ready!

12x12 scrap page ‘Cuteness’
by EWELINA GRYGLAK



For this layout you will need:

Starlight paper C92 004
Chipboard die-cut CUTENESS DC92 006
Stencil DS 063 C92 range
Carder’s Pack MC92 001A
Other requirements:  clear matte gesso, texture paste, colour co-ordinating gouache paint (green and orange), white acrylic ink, various leaf design and ‘family’ stamps + black archival ink, circle paper punch, mulberry leaves, 3d foam tape, glue

Instructions:

PREPARATION:
Paint the Chipboard die-cut CUTENESS DC92 006 white using the acrylic ink; once dry, watercolour it green using gouache paint.

STEP 1:
Your base page is Starlight paper C92 004, the tree silhuettes side up. To make sure the wet mediums don’t soak through the page, prime it with a layer of clear matte gesso (that will make it waterproof but will not fade out the original paper design).

STEP 2:
Mix texture paste with micro-balls to add dimension. Run the mix through the Stencil DS 063 C92 range – the tree design only – place it closer to one side of the page.

STEP 3:
While the ‘stamp’ is drying, sprinkle the watered-down green and orange gouache paints onto the design so that it soaks the colour in and created the impression of various tones and shades. Green paint on the leaves, orange on the trunk.

STEP 4:
Pick one of the sheets from the Carder’s Pack MC92 001A and cut it into strips of various size. With black pen, draw frames on all of them (you can do it on either side of the paper as you will use them both when building the paper cluster). Punch circles in some of the strips.
Once ready, assemble the strips into a paper cluster.

STEP 5:
Once the stencilled design and paint are dry, stamp the leafy design around the area where the paper cluster will be attached. Stamp the ‘family’ around the whole design.

STEP 6:
Attach the paper cluster to the page using 3d foam tape. Sprinkle more green and orange paint over the paper cluster. Using 3d foam tape, attach the photo on top.

STEP 7:
Using double-sided tape attach the earlier prepared chipboard CUTENESS.

STEP8:
Glue in mulberry leaves under opposite corners of the paper cluster.



Good job!
