New Product Focus: Wood Veneer & Sequins

I am loving all the new wood veneer designs and sparkly sequins in the newest JBS release! I knew they'd be the perfect embellishments for a page about our recent trip to Mexico, so I gathered up my favorites and got to work!

To create a beachy feel on the background, I lightly brushed it with Speckled Egg ink that I watered down.  Once it was dry, I used the Plus One Stencil with aqua acrylic paint and added some of the cross-hatch texture over the top.  I then cleaned out the stencil and used it again with a teal fine-tip marker to trace additional plus-signs around the painted areas.

I layered a few paper scraps down the center of the page and then arranged my wood frames vertically as well. I sized my four photos to fit inside the Insta-Frames, which will perfectly hold 2x2-inch prints. Adhering them with foam dots helps to pop them up off the wood a bit.

I used the Speech Bubbles stencil to trace shapes onto white cardstock. Then I cut them out with small scissors and used them to hold my journaling strips (also brushed with water down Speckled Egg ink.)

Finally, I sprinkled several of the wood veneer clouds, clear sequins, and flower sequins around the page. They add the ideal finishing touch to this vacation page!

The wood veneers, stencils, and sequins are now available online and in scrapbook stores. We'd love to see what your create with them!

Happy Scrapping!

New Product Focus: Say What?

When my son was little, he would say that something was " three wishes" instead of saying it was delicious. When I saw the new Jenni Bowlin Studio gold rub-ons, I knew I wanted to use them to tell the tale.

I wasn't sure where I wanted to use the rub-ons at first. I applied them to some vellum so I could easily move them around the page. Using the vellum also made it easy to add the Pennant Rub-On to a toothpick. I used some paper tape to make some smaller pennants Though I love the gold rub-ons, my favorite new release item are the Wood Veneer Buttons. I love the gentle touch of warmth they add to my layouts.

Susie Moore used a banner from each day to express her love for her special boy!

Quite a bargain for kits you'll use over and over!

Thanks Audrey and Susie for your creative layouts!

Corrie Jones Shows Us How : Video!

Corrie Jones has such a light-hearted and whimsical signature style.  In this video she makes a layout using a single piece of white cardstock, adding background layers of gesso, watercolor, stitching, and rub-ons and uses layers of embellishments to finish.  Watch Corrie's process below!

New Product Focus : JBS Rub-Ons and Your Pocket Pages

I am using the pocket page format for my son's college baseball album.  I'm finding it an easy way to store the photos I know he'll want to see years from now, record stats and records, and store memorabilia.

I've found that the new Jenni Bowlin Studio Pennants Rub-Ons, Labeled Rub-Ons, and other JBS gold Rub-Ons work extremely well with this format.

I want to keep the format similar and simple throughout the entire book.  This is the only way I'll finish by the time he graduates next year!  The gold is such a fun neutral and goes with anything, including the blues and whites of his baseball uniform.  The gold will certainly match with any other school and uniform color, too.

The new JBS Wood Veneer buttons add another neutral touch with dimension.  I painted them with a clear glitter paint and added matching embroidery thread.  

The pockets are either white cardstock with Spice Tin splatters - or blue with splattered white paint and die-cut titles.

I just love the cohesive look when you keep with certain color schemes and embellishments on each pocket: a hint I learned from Doris!

Another great way to use your JBS Rub-Ons is to rub them directly onto the top of the plastic pocket page.  The enlarged photo above was from a photographer and I wanted to preserve it as is, so I rubbed a Pennant Rub-On and a piece of the Tiny Trims Revised onto the top of a plastic 6x8 pocket.  JBS Rub-Ons are of GREAT quality and transfer to paper like buttah and to transfer them onto a slick plastic surface, you just need to rub twice!

I am thrilled with this format and using Jenni's Rub-Ons to embellishment my pockets!  I think my son will be too!
