PRETTY PAGES by RIKKI

 


Hi everybody, Rikki here once more with some beauties from the PRD gallery:

First there is "Not happy" by Dady.
A cute doggie (even though he is unhappy), lots of white space and scribbles - the perfect combo, if you ask me. 


Then this gorgeous page by geek_girl caught my eye. What a beautiful cluster with all those elements and the paint and splatters. I love how it works on the patterned background. I'd never dare. 


Last, but not least: This "flippin' awesome" page by tjscraps. Again, a super cool cluster, white space and an upside down girl. The color combo of red and purple - I love it! 


OK, that's it for today. Keep making those pages and share them in the Pink Reptile Designs Gallery! Your page might just be the next one featured on the blog!

HYBRID | 3D PAPER FRAME

 

I am filling in for our hybrid hero Géraldine this month and I am going to be making a super fun and super easy hybrid 3D paper frame. I found this tutorial on the paper shape website a little while ago and my hands have been itching to give this cute project a go so.... here we go.

I started with a piece of white cardstock that I printed front and back with paper 2A and 8A from my recently released Botanica Collection. After both sides were printed I ran the paper through the printer once more to print the 7,5 x 10 cm template provided on the paper shape website over one of the patterns.



 Here's the tools I used. A cutting matte, metal ruler, hobby knife and scoring pen.

Now this is where the fun really starts. I cut the template out of the paper and ran over all indicated dotted lines (fold lines) with a scoring pen for easy folding.


Then I started folding all the flaps except for the right one because that's the side I used for sliding in my photo.


Then I measured the space for my photo and printed it along with a dymo and a flower also form the Botanica collection.

Once that embellished photo was in place I folded in that last part.

And that's it!!!

Here's what it looks like on a plank in our cloak room.



 
For the template and instruction video hop on over to the paper shape site. You 'll find them HERE at the very bottom of the page.

As always we hope you enjoyed the post and if I inspired you in any way, shape or form then by all means make a photo of your project and upload it to your gallery so you can leave a link in the comment section below!

INSPIRATION | INTERNET AS A RESOURCE

 

Hello, scrappers! Cindy here on the blog with an inspirational post.
Inspiration is everywhere, and I mean it! I don't even remember what I was looking for the other day, but I came across this very interesting design, and I thought
it will be fun to scraplift it.

First, I browsed some of my favorite PRD kits and looked for word arts, little ephemera, paper pieces, and illustrations that looked like stickers or could be turned into stickers.
Then I started building my page from bottom to top, adding a drop shadow on each layer, as well as a stroke when the element wasn't already a sticker or paper.
At the end I couldn't resist adding a some 3D elements, like flowers, ribbons, and foliage as a final touch, because, you know, PRD kits are so awesome!
And here is the final result, with 107 layers!


As Pink Lady Cheryl saw the post in the blog preparation forum she got inspired by Cindy's post and made this layout.

If we inspired you to lift the theme then by all means leave a link in the comment section below this post. We love to see your take on this :)
