Stencil Girl Pop Up Book

Welcome, everyone, to another collaborative with StencilGirl! This one focuses on using their stencils to make a pop-up book! And how fun it was!

First off, let me tell you what stencils I used:

Kunst Puppen - One Male One Female

















And now on to the book! I used different papers and techniques for the pop-up affect. You can really go crazy with this stuff! 





















Here's a quick and dirty video of it - I don't have a stand for my cell phone so I won't be winning any video awards 😂🤣


It really was fun learning different techniques used for pop-up books - these are basic. So much more to explore and learn! Adding stencils to your project combined with strategically placed pop ups, like an open mouth on a face, really adds interest. 

I hope you'll explore this type of art yourself. Pop-ups have been around a long time and is another great tool to use for artistic expression that we don't see a lot of. Thanks so much to StencilGirl for allowing me to be a part of this creative collaboration!

If you love something...

...make a card out of it! And that's what I did with some stickers from A Vintage Girl and her daughter!


I used various stickers from 5 different sets: Pink SteampunkValentine DividersValentine QuotesSteampunk Planner Set, and Steampunk.

I embellished the outside with lacquer and gold rub 'n buff and added velcro to close the flaps.



For the inside, I used Photoshop to scan some of the stickers - yep, I went digital. I also used some funky digitals from Gecko Galz for the background.  There's lacquer and more stickers for embellishing. The butterfly sticker is mounted over the digital one I scanned. 






You can really get creative with these stickers and you can mix and match! They're great for layouts, cards, ATCs, mixed media, and anything else you can create. Valentine's is coming up so grab some to make something special for your Valentine!

How cute are these!?

I've been having some fun with these new stickers from A Vintage Girl & her daughter! They're so fun and so many different styles to choose from. They even have planner sets!

For this little project, I used the bottom of a cardboard box set to create a cute little scene using stickers from 4 different sets: Let's Pack & TravelMagic KingdomVintage Fashion, and Funny New Year's Quotes.


As you can see, stickers aren't just for kids! 



I loved combining different sticker sets to create something so girlie and fun!

School Days

Hello again, everyone! I'm back with a little makeover. I had this wooden holiday tea box with a sliding lid and upcycled it into a scene from school days past. It started as this:


And turned into this! 


I used Graphic 45's ABC Primer collection to make a fun little scene! I fussy cut different elements and covered the box with the tartan plaid print paper. 



The fun part is inside - just slide the lid! 


More fussy cutting and elements to create a cozy scene! 



These types of boxes we seem to just throw out - but look what they can become once your creativity kicks in!
