SNR Feature

I had the honor of being a Featured Artist for Scrapbook News and Review Ezine. I wrote an article about making the time to scrapbook yourself. You can check it out on SNR's website under Fun Stuff.

I created this All About Me layout for the feature and also added a few older layouts, too.

Close-ups of the tissue paper flowers

Here's the step by step instructions for creating those tissue paper flowers seen on the layout:

Step 1: Gather your supplies {Heat tool, Luminarte Radiant Rain shimmering spritz, Metal dies, Die cutting machine, adhesive squares, flower center, gift wrap tissue paper}

Step 2: Use metal dies to die cut several different size circles. (I used the 3 smaller circles, but die cut 2 of the circles twice for a fuller flower.)

Step 3: Spray each circle with Luminarte shimmering spritz.

Step 4: Very gently crumple the circles and dry them with a heat tool.

Step 5: Very gently un-crumple the circles and dry the centers if necessary.

Step 5: Apply adhesive square to the center of each circle and layer in size order, with the smallest on the top.

Step 7: Add flower center and then attach to the project.
