Tuesday Tip–Chalkboard layouts!

Chalkboard is all the rage these days and did you know that Black Magic is perfect for it?  For this layout, Designer Leica Forrest used a few diffferent kind of Black Magic with a blue and pink core. This layout was in our booth at CHA and everyone LOVED it. The texture is just amazing!

Tip 1.) Make it look like it’s really chalk by using the Outlining technique. New to outlining? All you do is take some removable adhesive and put your chipboard letters on your kraft mat and then sand over. You can check out the Technique Video HERE. Leica used this technqiue for the “Family”  title.

Tip 2.) Sand punched pieces and layer them on your layout base it looks like it is chalk. See that scalloped piece above the Family tile?  Leica punched first, sanded and then adhered it. It looks just like a colored piece of chalkboard! She used the same technique for the banner along the bottom of the photo.

Tip 3.)  Use your white gel pen or marker on the Black Magic just as you would with any other cardstock. Highlight the title…add some journaling….doodle…add some Queen & Co. bling…whatever you want! Looks awesome, don’t you think?

Tuesday’s Tip…Scraps from a Sketch

Hi! Ellen here with my take on Lydia’s sketch. Not much time so hurry up and LINK YOURS HERE or share it on our Facebook page!

My Tuesday Tip is all about scraps so keep reading ;)

And in case you missed it…here is the sketch from Designer Lydia Jackson:

Here are some close ups …the first one is of the BasicGrey Core Impressions and some of the scoring with my Score-Pal:

Next up the butterflies…I like to mix up the embossing folders with the dies.  Folders are a mix of STampin’ Up! And Darice.  Embellies are a mix of Studio Calico and October Afternoon.

AND ..last but not least…

My Tuesday Tip is to use those scraps. Now, if you are  like me you need to do this right away or I end up putting them on a pile in my desk.  So if I don’t use them on a card or another project immediately then I probably won’t.

So here is my card with my left over butterflies. The base is Pink Paislee Modern Prints Core Impressions and the envelope is from Maya Road.  All Adhesives are from 3L and burlap string is from May Arts.

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Day TWO!

Today we are here with Design Team Member Char Dobson. Char’s Tueseday tip for you is all about  the CD pocket. They are acid free and archival safe so perfect for any project.  And self-adhesive so just peal off the back!

Yes…we are in LOVE with these! I love the sentiment that Char uses…wonder what is on that CD?

And the other side:

Other supplies:  Bella Blvd stickers, May Arts ribbon, Ranger Distress ink
And Char created a card for us today, too. Love how Char combines purple with the natural jute and burlap flower from May Arts.
Notice the metal embellishments, too?  You need some GREAT adhesive for these kinds of embellishments, especially on a card that will be open and closed. That is why we love our Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L power tape.
Char’s next Tuesday  Tip is …..don’t be afraid to emboss those Core Cards!  Just emboss the front by sliding it in to your folder. They are perfectly sized A2 Cards that will fit right in your standard embossing folders like this one from Provocraft.
Other Core’dinations used : Kraft CoreCut & Emboss
