DT CraftWell: Hello NYC, My Favorite Place Mini-Album



This is my next post for Craftwell. 

For this project, I used my last month SCT (Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine) sampler kit. I love all the travel themed papers included and soft pastel color scheme as well as the included die cuts, with a touch of gold foil to make this summer project special:

I'm planning to put a little picture of us in the heart opening...

I specially love the taxis printed paper. It goes so well with NYC, even with the UBer trend.

I only needed to make the binding with my Krockadile and cut the corners of the paper with my Krumper (I think that is how it is called). For the binding, I made loops of green elastic cord and tied several coordinated ribbons to them:

For the title, I diecut the sentiment: "Hello" using two lovely colorful papers from the kit:

Working with kits from the same company makes it easier to combine papers, and embellishments without worrying about matching them.

DT Winter Wonderland: Reindeer


Dear Scrappers,

This is my August post for Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog:

There is no sponsor this month.

For this challenge, I used the Snowmen Selfie image from SheepSki forgetting that the theme of the challenge is "Reindeer". 
Which I fixed by adding a reindeer die cut in the inside to match the "warm winter wishes" sentiment:

Here is a closer look to the reindeer:

I used cupper metallic cardstock.

I colored the printed digital image with distressing inks using a watercolor brush for a soft look. 

I used the sketch:

From try stampin on tuesday current challenge. I die cut a fun scallop border and some tags to add the stamped sentiment from Taylor Expressions (TE).

Materials and tools:

unknown scallop and tags dies
Darisse Reindeer die
DCWV foiled Christmas paper pack
CTMH card
Amalgam ink, Gina K
HeroArts inks
TH Distress Inks
Watercolor brush, TE
red ribbon, unknown
3D dots
