It's no secret that I love layering in my Project Life spreads and layouts. For this layout I discovered that Project Life cards are already cut to a perfect size and ready to layer. There aren't really any "rules" to layering but I tend to keep the weight of my layers towards the bottom of the layout to "anchor" it down. Distressing the edges of your layers adds another dimension. Have fun with your layers and be sure to share the link here!
We have loved seeing instagrams and message board posts about our new Atlantic collection showing up at all of your houses, and wanted to give you a little more inspiration as you started working with it. Today, we have a video from Maggie Holmes walking you through her process of creating this sweet layout with some of her favorite Atlantic products.
If you've had a chance to break into your Atlantic goodies, we'd love to see what you've made! Link us up, or share it with us on twitter or instagram using the hashtag #SCatlantic.
Howdy! It's Lisa Spangler here today, and I have a quick little video to share some tips and tricks for using the stamp roller that came in this month's card kit add-on, Americano! Love this stamp so much. First I share how to get it inky, then how you can free-style it, and finally how to get a straight edge.
Here's a closer look at the card so that you can see it better :
Hiya everyone! I have put together a super quick tutorial for you with one of my favorite tips on using digital stamps or custom journaling. Have you ever tried to select a color in photoshop only to have it totally clash with your paper line once you have printed it? Here is my super simple solution!
Hi everyone, I am so excited to be
able to share a glimpse inside my card making process. For today’s card I chose
to use the beautiful and inspiring products from the Studio Calico’s Sundrifter
Collection. Now I will be the first to say that I am not an organized
pre planned crafter. I do not have an exact idea in mind when I sit down to
create and I seldom create a sketch to base my project on beforehand, a lot of
times I just sit down and make whatever comes to out while working with the
product. I do however get very inspired by pictures and colours and a lot of
times will draw inspiration from home décor magazines; whether it be from a
certain fabric, pattern or texture that catches my eye. But for this card I was
really inspired by the pattern papers and colours in the collection, and I had
a special person in mind when making it :)

Whether you use them for coloring in stamps, creating backgrounds, or adding a custom look to ready made embellishments, these papers are a great item to have in your creative arsenal!

8.5x11 paper to print a template
note that every printer is different. I can't be specific as to which
way to face a card on your printer, whether it should be face up or face
down. If you don't know which side your printer prints on, simply mark a
piece of paper and place it face up before printing a test. If your
test print comes out on the same side as your mark, then you know you
have to face your card and template up.
