Scrapbooking Day 2017 Recap - Inlaid Diecutting Background with My Favorite Things

The is my last blog post regarding (National) Scrapbooking Day 2017 where I spent the whole day hosting an online cyber crop for The Paper Crafting magazine.
 
The Paper Crafting is a Scandinavian online magazine for Danes, Norwegians and Swedes. It is packed full of inspiration for paper crafters.


But I wasn't alone, oh no, there were a great turnout for the cyber crop event and I also was so fortunate to have two sweet visitors IRL from the Danish Operation Write Home - Operation Skriv Hjem, who spent the day crafting with me.

For the event I had prepared 3 different challenges for the participants and of course I joined in myself :)

Here is the last project I made during the day........


The Danish sentiment means "Congrats" or "Happy Birthday". 

This is such a cool background die and its actually called "Snow Drifts" but you certainly don't only have to use if for such as I have showed here :)



This was the challenge which my project was based on: 

 
If you are curious you can visit HERE and see all the projects created by the participants and the magazines Guest Design team on the Cyber Crop Event. 

This was the last of my projects from the Cyber Crop Event on Scrapbooking Day 2017 :)

Hope you have a splendid day,

Scrapbooking Day 2017 Recap - Double Layered Heat Embossing with Clearly Besotted

May 6th was (National) Scrapbooking Day 2017 and I spent the whole day hosting an online cyber crop for The Paper Crafting magazine.

But I wasn't alone, oh no, there were a great turnout for the cyber crop event and I also was so fortunate to have two sweet visitors IRL from the Danish Operation Write Home - Operation Skriv Hjem, who spent the day crafting with me.

For the event I had prepared 3 different challenges for the participants and of course I joined in myself :)

Here is one of the projects I made during the day........


For this project I wanted to do Double Layered Heat Embossing. Basically, it means you put two different patterns/texts on top of each other with heat embossing.

For the first layer I used a diagonal striped background stamp. Here with the green embossing powder. 

Then I used a leafy stamp for the second layer of heat embossing. And a word of advice - I speak from personal experience ;)

When you work with double layer heat embossing then do not put your fingers anywhere on the first layer of heat embossing just after melting the second layer. It will only give you finger prints in your embossing powder as the first layer also gets heated up again!

I had to cover up such a mistake with the butterfly ;)


This was the challenge which my project was based on:

Hope you have an inspirational day,

Scrapbooking Day 2017 Recap - Ink Blending with Black

May 6th was (National) Scrapbooking Day 2017. Did you go crafty on May 6th??
I was definitely crafty as I spent the whole day hosting an online cyber crop for The Paper Crafting magazine.

But I wasn't alone, oh no, there were a great turnout for the cyber crop event and I also was so fortunate to have two sweet visitors IRL from the Danish Operation Write Home - Operation Skriv Hjem, who spent the day crafting with me.

Here is one of the projects I made during the day........


I have always been a bit scared of using black Distress Ink on blending projects. But during the Cyber Crop Event one of the participants had done just that and it look amazing. 

So this is my go at using black ink for an ink blending project and I am very, very happy with the result. The black Distress Ink doesn't look THAT black when it comes to it!


The Danish sentiment means "Congrats" or "Happy Birthday".

Under supplies used you can see which ink colours I have used for this card. 

This was the challenge which my project was based on:
