I decided to make a decorative printer tray for my bookshelf. You can get these printer trays and Michael's Craft Stores, Hobby Lobby, even Amazon. I just cut out papers, it helps to cut small pieces and keep getting them smaller until they fit. I then added embellishments and two photos. Simple as that. Full list of items used below. Have fun with it, you can even do it for a holiday, a gift. Get creative!
An adorable frame to inspire you this summer. Jen Randall always thinks outside the box. She took the Inspirational Jumbo Stickers and made a fun frame that you can use in your room, office or anywhere really.
Jen had a few of the wooden scroll frames from Michaels in her stash. (I have to admit I have a few also) She decided it would be perfect to frame the jumbo stickers for a quick home decor craft.
The first thing she did was use the frame as a template and cut a rectangle from some scrap cardboard. She then painted the frame white and set it aside to dry. While the frame was drying she chose a jumbo sticker to use. Love the gold and orange combination of the "sparkle" sticker. SO fun and pretty. Plus, who can resist the gold!?
She then thumbed through the Mixed Media mambi Sheets and chose a darling diagonal striped orange pattern to work with, cut it to the same size as the cardboard and attached it. Before putting the jumbo sticker down, Jen felt it needed a little something so she used a gold chevron patterned paper from Kraft Wedding and cut a large circle to mimic the other circles in the sticker. She used some orange paper too to help the gold stand out, glued them all together and added the word YOU with sparkling gold mambi CHIPS, oh, and also added a tiny gold heart to the bottom right.
Finally, she glued the cardboard to the frame and added some gold & cream colored bakers twine to hang. Now it is ready to brighten up any room!
A great pastel POCKET PAGES™ layout on today's blog. Sam on our design team made this layout with so many mambi goodies. I love how much is going on with this layout. You could look at it for a long time and still find something new the next minute.
Everyone needs a little LOVE LOVE LOVE in their life. Amanda Johnson made an adorable LOVE card that we're featuring today. This card only took her 15 minutes. You have 15 minutes to show your love for someone, right? I love how she layered all the goodies in the corner. She said not to be afraid to keep re-doing, and re-arranging until you get it right. A fun little creative process. All the goodies she used are listed below.
Oh, one more thing! The paper she used to mat the LOVE LOVE LOVE is the mixed media mambiSHEETS. We love that one, so versatile!
This adorable Die Cut Stickers layout was created by none other than Steph Buice from our mambi Design Team! She did this awesome layout highlighting the Die Cut Stickers, they are defiantly one of her favorites.
For this layout she used a good mix of products. Stephanie even used the negative left over letters to add a "Love You" to the top right part of the page. She used a great combo of POCKET PAGES™ cards and some other patterned papers from one of the banner pads to add more color. And this page just pops with color! Finishing up with arrow puffy stickers, some dots and a few splashed of paint. A fabulous page, sure to get anyone's attention with all this color and fun.
Here is a POCKET PAGE that Jen Randall made inspired by the Insta Love SOFT SPOKEN™. Too cute! She also used some cards from the new watercolor 3x4 cards, the Forever watercolor 8x8 pad, and the new clear stickers. I love how this all came together. All goodies listed shown below. Click if you want more details. I just love how she captured her family's daily life. Sometimes if you don't document it, it's easier to forget. Don't let that happen!
Little tip: Jen love using dimensional stickers. They add some interest and texture. But, sometimes thick layers in projects for POCKET PAGES or frames are not wanted. NO need to worry. Just pull the little sticky pads off the back and simply use the chipboard. For example on this page the small circle sticker on the top right picture had a glittery bottom that added lots of thickness that I didn't want. I just pulled it off and poof - it's perfect. Just a little tip for all the POCKET scrappers out there.
A fun little craft for bedroom or birthday party decor! All you need is a jar and a number. Cover in paper, add some embellishments and done! An adorable project that Jen Randall made for our CHA show. You can cut the glitter and embellished POCKET PAGES™ to spice up so many things. I can just imagine these on the table at a kid's birthday party. Fun!
DIY wedding signs made with jumbo mambiSTICKS on black corrugate or wood? Which one do you like more? I can't decide! I first cut corrugate arrows with an X-acto knife and use the White Chalk Script Lowercase mambiSTICKS™. I then realized that since I'm doing more of a shabby chic theme to my wedding, the wood with the Black Script Lowercase mambiSTICKS™ might be better. What do you think? Comment below, I'd love to see which one you like more. I plan on putting a 2x4 in the ground and nailing them all to one post at the point of entrance so people know where to go.
- I covered the black letters with Mod Podge to ensure the letters won't come off in case it rains.
- I was able to use one package for each!
- I used a 'd' and an 'l' to make an uppercase 'R'. You can barely see the overlap!
Happy crafting everyone!
The layering on this page is great. Also a good guide to follow for those favorite Instagram photos. Do you scrapbook your Instagram photos? I do!
