Scrapbook by Embellishing Pre-Designed Paper with 28 Lilac Lane Kits!

There’s many papers available for scrapbooking that are pre-designed to look already partially “done” as a layout. But how do you take those from looking flat to looking fantastic? The secret to fabulous scrapbook layouts is embellishing pre-designed paper with your 28 Lilac Lane embellishment kits! And I’m going to show you exactly how to do it with this easy scrapbook layout from my recent trip to Paris.

Paris Scrapbook Layout

Supplies:

I started with a pre-designed background paper from DCWV. It is designed to look like a piece of ledger paper that has florals and several vintage elements layered on top of the left edge to frame it.

Because this paper comes from a paper stack, I was able to create practically the entire layout using pre-coordinated items from the stack. All of the paper items on the layout are cut from sheets in the same stack.

That large brown vintage receipt ephemera was white space that was just begging to be filled! It was the perfect place to put my Eiffel Tower stamp, stamped in dark brown pigment ink to continue the vintage theme.

But of course, a stamp is still flat – and I wanted to add some dimension to this area. So I grabbed my 28 Lilac Lane embellishment kits, which are perfect for embellishing pre-designed paper! A few buttons and flat back pearls from the “Love Story” embellishment kit (along with a strip of tissue tape) were the perfect addition to finish off the area where I’d just stamped my Eiffel Tower.

At the very top edge of the page, I dabbed clear glue in the center of a few of the pink flowers and dropped a few pearl sequins on them to add a bit of shine and dimension to the flowers.

On the other side of the layout, I cut and arranged all of the paper elements. I stamped the Paris stamp with Shimmer ink, and used black pen to write my journaling (leaving room to put the charm on).

Once all the paper elements and the photo were in place, I tore and stuck down two pieces of tissue tape along the edges of the large pink block. These pieces served as grounding for my buttons.

I used button shank removers to cut the shank off of the large white filigree button from the Attic Findings kit, and glued it in place at the bottom of the layout. Then I selected a cream colored button from the same kit and adhered it at the top of the layout. Finally, I glued the heart charm from the “Love Story” kit onto the journaling block.

Having a selection of 28 Lilac Lane embellishment kits on hand makes it so easy to scrapbook by embellishing pre-designed paper. Select a paper, grab the kit in the coordinating color scheme, and in minutes you can have a beautiful layout!

28 Lilac Lane fun with May Flaum & Ellen Hutson!

We’re very excited to share today that Ellen Hutson is featuring our 28 Lilac Lane product line by May Flaum this month in their monthly Mix It Up Challenge, pairing their favorite products with their own Essentials by Ellen products!

As part of the challenge, 28 Lilac Lane designer May Flaum has shared two new fabulous projects on her blog that use her gorgeous new 28 Lilac Lane Unicorn Shaker Mix:

28 Lilac Lane Rainbow Unicorn Shaker Mix

May’s quick and fun cards pair watercolors with 28 Lilac Lane embellishments to send love for Valentine’s Day (or any day). The first one uses sequins to add “pop” to an Ellen Hutson flower stamp.

You're So Sweet Card by May Flaum

You’ll really “heart” the fun simplicity of her second card – a hand watercolored heart that is embellished with sequins! It’s a little bit artsy, a little bit whimsical, and a whole lot of fun. It’s easy enough that the kids can do it – but the grown-ups will want to as well!

To see the finished cards, instructions, and supply lists, check out May’s blog for all the details! And don’t miss the chance to enter the challenge on the Ellen Hutson blog – entries close on February 14th.

Butterfly Wall Art

Butterfly Wall Art 1Hi! It’s guest designer, Laura Bray. Are you in need of a little spring joy during this long winter? How about creating some cute, button encrusted butterflies to be used in wall art? These would also be really cute on gift wrap, pins, or hair clips too! Here’s how to make them…

Supplies:

Embellishment bottles and kits in the colors of your choice.
• Cardstock paper in colors that match your buttons colors.
• PVC glue

For framed artwork:

• White 8” x 10” frame
• Decorative scrapbook paper
• PVC glue

To create butterflies:

  1. From paper, cut butterfly shapes out. I drew my own, but you can also use a stencil or a die and die cut machine.
  2. Apply a line of glue down the “body” of the butterfly. Glue mini beads into place. Allow to dry completelyButterfly Wall Art 2
  3. Apply a thick layer of glue onto the front of the paper butterfly wings. Glue buttons on to the paper. Shake beads and sequins over the butterfly to fill in any spaces between the buttons.
  4. To create a framed art piece, cut the decorative scrapbook paper to size to fit your frame. Remove the frame’s glass, and glue down the butterflies. Allow them to dry completely before hanging.
