How to make a Fun Cookbook Layout

Happy Monday!  Shelly with you today sharing the newest addition to my “Family Favorites” cookbook scrapbook.

I love using paper piecings (hand made or pre-made) on my layouts and Dew Drops give that extra texture, dimension and sparkle.

*Note:  At the end of this post I announce the winner of my Dew Drop RAK from my last post!!

Supply List:

8 x 8 White Textured Cardstock (Base)
Diamond Dew Drops
Original Dew Drops
Stand Mixer Paper Piecing from Paper Wizard
“What’s Cookin” Paper Collection – Photo Play

Optional:

Machine Stitching
Inking

Make it!

  • Ink the edges of your paper piecing (use same color for subtle dimension, or black/brown for a more defined look)
  • Assemble piecing
  • Embellish with your Dew Drops and Diamond Dew Drops – – I like using odd number of Dew Drops in my groups with an odd number of groupings – ie I have used 3 clusters of 3 Dew Drops on this piece
  • Recipe is printed on plain white cardstock using Albertsthal Tyewriter Font in 10pt ( recipe size is 4.75 x 4)

Dew Drops & Diamond Drops make this recipe layout EVERYTHING!  Show me YOUR recipe

How to Make Easy Mosaic Magic with Dew Drops Creative Canvas

Hello and welcome to the blog. Shelly with you today sharing some mosaic magic with the “Artsy Rose” Creative Dew Drop Canvas.

I have become completely enamored of the Creative Canvas kits from the Robins’s Nest – – there are so many ways to use them and the process is relaxing, creative bliss!

There are so many different looks that can be achieved – my project definitely has a mosaic vibe – and it was as easy as doing a paint-by-number!

Kits come with a pre-printed canvas, a supply of Dew Drops and an inspiration pic!

There are many ways to apply Dew Drops, just dot some glue on your canvas and add the Dew Drop!

My go-to for applying a LOT of Dew Drops is Embellie Gellie from ScraPerfect – gently pick up and place Dew Drops – so easy and fast!

 

 

Designer Tip #1:  Use a Fine Tip Sharpie to outline the canvas design – helps anchor and define your piece

Designer Tip #2:  Use ALL of the different shapes and sizes to give your piece dimension and texture – experiment!

I did add some ink and paint to the canvas…
But I am still undecided how this piece will end up… I have 2 ideas:
-Fussy cut rose, add to a mixed media canvas with quote from Beauty and the Beast (Beauty is Found Within or Until the Last Petal Falls)
-Fussy cut rose and add to a card for Mother’s day – I think this would make a SPECTACULAR card!
So if you have read this far, I am going to let YOU decide how I should use this rose!  Leave a comment…..
Choose 1 of my 2 options – – or tell me how YOU would use it!  Someone will receive a Dew Drop RAK direct from my stash!!
Thanks for stopping by the blog today – have a creative week!

How to Create Beautiful & Fun Art with the New “Creative Dew Drop Canvas”

Hello and welcome to the blog.  Shelly with you today sharing a project from The Robin’s Nest hot new product line – Creative Dew Drop Canvas!

What is the Creative Dew Drop Canvas?  A whole new re-imagining of my favorite craft embellishment!

“Creative Dew Drop Canvas.  Includes a pre-printed canvas, Dew Drops, and a color picture of  how  you could create your masterpiece.  Mount to a frame or glue to a hard surface.  A great mixed media treasure.  Available in small (5” x 7”), medium (12” x 12”), large (18” x 24”), and extra-large (24” x 36”)”



I am using the Artsy Bee Love canvas kit today.

Let’s get started!

Gather:

Artsy Bee Love Creative Dew Drop Canvas Kit
Sharpie Fine Point Markers
Ink
Acrylic Paint
Optional:  Mini Cup Cake paper liners to hold Dew Drops & Paint
Optional:  Sewing Machine

Make:

 

  • Trace over printed design with fine tip Sharpie
  • Highlight design with ink or paints

 

  • Use inks, sprays and machine stitching on canvas

 

Now it’s time to start to embellish with Dew Drops – as little or as many as YOU want

Deigner Tip:  Pour Dew Drops into mini cup cake liners while in use – easy access, and then easy to pour unused drops back into bottle!

Embellie Gellie from ScraPerfect makes Dew Drop placement a cinch!

The possibilities are ENDLESS with these fun designs!  Use as few or as many Dew Drops as you like to create a one of a kind mixed media masterpiece!

Thanks for stopping by today – have a creative week!

How to Create Perfect Highlights with Dew Drops

Special moments and perfect pictures.  Sometimes you do not need a lot of product to create a meaningful and beautiful scrapbook page.

But you do want that “oomph” to make your page pop! And that’s when you reach for Dew Drops!

My niece recently got engaged, and I am documenting the road to her wedding day! This layout features her “Save the Date” card and a few engagement photo “out takes” I swiped off Facebook and made into a collage.



I am using the Poinsettia Dew Drop Mix and the Rhapsody Collection from Photo Play for this layout.



Dew Drops add dimension and sparkle to this layout

Design Notes:  machine stitching and the name tag (Beyoutiful) from the patterned paper are fun touches!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today – have a creative week!
