The Book of Love & Gratitude- 7 Dots Studio Video Tutorial

It's my turn this time to feature a tutorial for the 7 Dots Studio blog and I've created a project with a step by step video to go along with it.

A few people have asked me to show them how I create one of my love and gratitude journals. Here is a step by step video tutorial on how I designed this new book using the Destination Unknown collection.

It is important to be thankful each and every day for everything we have in this world and so I love creating these gratitude books for that reason. I love the colours in this 7 Dots Studio collection and so I actually kept this book for myself

Joy to the World- 12 Days of Christmas Cards- Prima

Here is another card I create for the 12 Days of Christmas Cards contest for Prima using Pinwheel Stencils and Color Bloom sprays.

I designed this card using the pinwheel stencil recycled packaging for its shape. I covered all sides of the packaging with papers from the Special delivery collection. This card is multi-functional as it can be given as a card and/or hung as an ornament on your tree. The stencil's packaging has the perfect shape to create this multi-faceted card

Here are the steps on how I created the large canvas flower using two Pinwheel stencils and two Color Bloom sprays:

Step 1: Spray two different sizes of Prima's Bethany canvas petal leaves with color bloom sprays: Golf Foil and Antique gold. Let them dry.
Step 2: Using two different sizes of Pinwheel Flower Stencils create a leaf pattern on each of the canvas petals using Finnabair Art Extravaganza- Gold Crackle paste. 
Step 3: While paste is still wet, sprinkle some Finnabair Art Ingredients fine gold glitter on the petals. Let them dry.
Step 4: Canvas petals will curl while drying so you don't need to shape them. If needed trim them around the stencilled area.
Step 5: glue the corner of each petal together to create two different sized flowers.
Step 6: Layer both flowers on top of each other. Then add an embellishment in the centre and you're done!!

Hello Summer- Blue Fern Studios Part 2

This month,  I created 3 beach layouts with three different Blue Fern Studios Collections.
I recently came back from a family beach vacation. I wanted to show how versatile all the Blue Fern studios collections are and how easily they can be used for the same theme.

Here is one of the layouts created with the Blue Fern Garden Collection.

I used the "Signature" paper from the Blue Fern Garden collection for the background.

For chipboard, I used the Jewelled page dangles,  Jewelled frame and the Hello Summer title. They were all painted in with two different colours of acrylic paint.

papers: Blue Fern Studios
Chipboard: Blue Fern Studios
Flowers: Prima
Light moulding paste
Tim Holtz distress acrylic paint dabbers: Tumble glass and old paper.
Prima Color Bloom Lime Wedge

Hope you enjoyed my Blue Fern Studios creations this month!!
Have a wonderful day!

Quiet Moments- 7 Dots Studios Warm & Cozy Challenge

Here is another challenge for the 7 Dots Studio blog and this month the theme is Warm & Cozy.

Here is the mood board with small peeks of all the DT projects:

There's nothing better than drinking a warm cup of hot chocolate by the fire place on a cold and rainy day to feel warm and cozy and that's why this picture of my kids was the perfect picture for this theme. 

I used the 7 Dots Studio Thoughts Keeper collection to create this layout. I used N• 02 for the background, N• 06 for the layers, and then stencilling and stamping.
