A Library of Memories with ScrapBerry's

Greetings and welcome to the blog, it's Rhonda here today to share a project with you featuring the timeless "Words Live Forever" collection by ScrapBerry's.

This collection is so perfectly suited for all of those historical photos. When I looked at the papers, I knew immediately what photos that I wanted to scrapbook. Part of my family history involves this schoolhouse that was built for my grandfather and his eleven siblings so that they had a school to attend. Later on, it became a museum full of artifacts and rich with our family history.

I played off of the timeless elements in the papers by cutting a few pieces from the "Postcards for Pennies" paper to get the feel for the direction that the page would take. I started by layering the background papers so the "Moments" notebook sheet is on top of the "7th Street Library" paper. A bit of modeling paste and a clock stencil was added. I added a variety of ink splatters and set aside to dry.

A bit of stamping using the Photo Archive stamps, both the filmstrip and the lightbulb. I also cut out the phone and added it with foam squares. I layered in the washi tape, a few die cuts and of course that gorgeous "Wind of Travel" clock.

I really love to capture pieces of our family story and heritage for our children. This collection is perfectly suited for so many types of projects!

Sweet Baby with JustRite Papercraft

Greetings crafty friends!

I have a JustRite Papercraft project to share with you today featuring some cute new baby themed dies. This card is a bit on the modern side of design which is fun for something different.


I cut the Quatrefoil background layer from some striped patterned papers, then cut the sentiment layers and rattle. I decided on the Hello Decorative Oval Dies for the center focal point.

 
A bit of dimensional squares are used to give the card some texture.

 
A few enamel dots, string and cheesecloth were the finishing touches along with a bit of Stickles for the rattle.

This image shows the gold foil more accurately. I love the bits of foil accents with the watercolor, to me it's very elegant, yet natural.

This month's sketches are SO cute!

Melody of My Soul with ScrapBerry's

Happy February to you!

It's definitely that time of love in the air isn't it? Today I have a love themed project to share with you for ScrapBerry's current challenge featuring the "Birds of Paradise" collection.

ScrapBerry's Birds of Paradise Collection and February Challenge Inspiration Card designed by Rhonda Van Ginkel

I have used a variety of floral accents as well as a few die cuts and a metal charm. A bit of thick white gesso was added to some of the elements to white wash the colors and blend them a bit more to the collection.

In the image above, you can see the effect on the silver metal rose charm by adding a bit of white gesso. It transformed the charm. I love the mix of textures on this card.
