Sentimental story

Hello, fellow crafters
Today I am sharing a single page scrapbook layout that I really enjoyed putting together.
I have wanted to use the sentimental story sheet with elements for cutting for a very long time and today, eventually, the plan came together.

The layout features a studio75 paper for the background and flowers fussy cut from Fabrika Sentimental story.
Handmade foamiran flowers.
The textured piece at the top was made using Prima icing paste spread onto an embossing folder and left to dry before peeling it off.
Here are closeup photos showing details.

The frames are from the Mintay frames booklet.
The Sentimental story cut-out sheet, foamiran flowers and frames booklet are all available in our online store www.purplemagnolia.co.za.
Happy crafting, until next time
Marie Smith.

Quick flower-shaping demonstration - Lady E Flower 9

Today I am sharing a quick video demonstrating how I shaped these flowers that were made using the largest die from the Lady E Design dies Flower 9 set.

The flowers were die-cut from 240gsm smooth cardstock then coloured with daubers and Ranger archival ink in rose madder and Versamagic Pixie dust.

Tools used to shape the flowers:

* Foam flower-shaping mat

* Self-closing tweezers

* Ball flower-shaping tool from Heartfelt Creations

The dies and all the tools are available in our online store www.purplemagnolia.co.za

Happy crafting
