Colleen here and can't wait to share this girly layout page.

I decided to try a different shape this time, so I cut out a star using my Cameo, and cut out the star from the paper and from chipboard.

I used the backside of the Diamonds beautiful paper and adhered it to the chipboard.
Next I used a couple of my stencils and white molding paste onto the Diamonds paper.  Once it was dry I went over it with watercolor paints that I made myself.

While the paint was drying I embossed the beautiful Deco 6" Frame by Ginas Designs using silver embossing powder.  I also embossed a butterfly and all the leftover pieces from the frame.

I cut the photo into a circle and also cut a frame using the back side of Valentine Stripe paper.

Next I used back side of the Valentine Stripe paper and a die and cut out all the flowers.  I wanted the flowers to sparkle so I added glitter to each flower.  You just use a paintbrush to brush a little glue on the flower and sprinkle the glitter over the top.

To finish off the flowers I added a silver dew drop from the Black/White/Silver dew drop package.

I used a sizzix die and cut out all the leaves from Green Grass Glitter paper.  I added butterflies, some of my homemade stick pins and my homemade pearl accents and finally used Glitter Word Titles and cut out the "So Sweet" and used a star from the Silver Fireworks collection.

Thank you looking and don't forget to check out the beautiful products in the store.

Friendship Wraps with Bev

Hi Bev here today. I am creating with some of these amazing Friendship Wraps. What a great new addition to the product lines. So many fabulous different shapes and styles to pick from.

Supply List: 
Dew Drops: Fairy Dust
Chipboard: shape accents
Fairy: Gina Designs
Other: Memory Box Die, ribbons, lace, flowers, leaves, beads, Kreaxions punch, copic markers, liquid pearls

Here is the one specifically that I am using today.

1. Assemble the box using glue to firmly hold it in place.
2. Pull some accents that you would like to use on this.

3. Trim base with paper wrapped around.

4. I chose to punch a solid border to accent around the upper edge.

5. With the main paper and border done ... the rest is easy. Just trim and accent using things in your stash. On this side I die cut a gold accent using Memory Box die, then clustered Robin's Nest shapes cut from glitter chipboard and the fun silver heart accent. Dew drops were added to the upper right corner and a great cluster of ribbon, lace and beads tied off to finish this side.

6. On this side I made a cluster of flowers, some leaves and beads and wrapped and tied them off with ribbon. To match the other side I added the drew drops and using Gina Design fairy I copic coloured her and added liquid pearls to her wings.

This cute little Friendship Wrap could be used at parties as hostess gifts, candy boxes for those kids get togethers or fabulous fun table pieces for so many occasions. Notice from the side that they have great depth to add what ever you would like.


I was having so much fun I made another one... to share with you.

For this one I folded the upper handles to fold down just a little and meet in the middle.

Supply List:
Paper: Olive Stripe, 
Other: lace, ribbon, beads

Here is the front view with all the fun accents from Robin's Nest.

The other side with more accents... so many to choose from.

The side view where I left it plain sparkle paper in forest green with gold. Tie off the top with ribbons, lace and beads and you have a 2nd  Friendship Wrap box all done.

Thanks for stopping by today... see you again soon.

On Safari at Grandma's

Hello Robin's Nest Readers,

Robin posting today for Chattering Robins.

We have grandma week during the summer at our house.  
Grand kids come for a week, and we focus only on them,
Play games, go to the park, visit sites, and just have fun,
Each year we have a photo day, the kids dress up
with a box filled with all sorts of dress up clothes,
and they bring dresses from their closets for photo day.

Here the girls wanted to drive my sand rail,
it is parked on the back patio of our house during the summer
so it can take jaunts around the yard with grandpa, and 
the grand kids.  They beg for these rides.

I just loved how they got on the roof and just played their own
little game of being on a safari,
Look over there what I am seeing!

So when I started working on this page of pictures
I decided we needed to use the papers that would fit a safari theme.
Zebra and cheetah!

Black and White Glitter Animal Cardstock  Pink Glittered Leopard Cardstock

Then I added a few other papers that matched 

Shocking Pink Glitter Sorbet Cardstock  Summer Pink Glitter Cardstock  

and a sticker tag
Daughter Sticker

All other embellishments come from my scrapbook stash.

2 flowers are made from pipe cleaners and twisted in the middle.

And there you have it a very girly, pink safari layout.

You can find these products on the Robin's Nest Website

Have a great day!

My Darling scrapbook layout

Hi Chattering Robins friends!
It's Angela here today to show you my new project, a scrapbook page of my sweet Rudy.
I miss him so much...
It's a pic of him sleeping during our camping holiday in France, a few years ago.

Ciao amici di Chattering Robins!
Sono Angela e oggi vi mostro un nuovo progetto, una pagina scrapbooking dedicata al mio dolce Rudy.
Mi manca così tanto...
È una foto che è stata scattata mentre dormiva durante una vacanza in campeggio in Francia, un po' di anni fa.

I had this wonderful black and white paper with dog paw prints by The Robin's Nest and I thought it was perfect for the photo. But I wanted to add some of the colors of the pillow in the photo. So, I thought it would have been fun to color some paw prints with threads :)
I started punching some paw prints with the needle.

Avevo questa bellissima carta bianca e nera, con delle impronte di cagnolino di The Robin's Nest che ho trovato perfetta per la foto. Ma volevo aggiungerci alcuni dei colori del cuscino nella foto. Così, ho pensato sarebbe stato divertente colorare alcune improntine con del filato :)
Per cominciare ho bucato i contorni delle improntine con un ago.

Then, I started stitching using the satin stitch embroidery, fixing the wool thread on the back side with some  washi tape.

Così ho iniziato a ricamare usando il punto pieno e fissando il filo di lana nel retro del lavoro con del washi tape.

To add more brightness to the page I spray some colors around the photo

Per aggiungere più vivacità alla pagina, ho spruzzato dei colori attorno alla foto

and some colored dew drops (I looooove them).

ed alcune dew drops colorate (io le adooooro).

I added scraps of patterned paper in two opposite corners as well as my title.

Ho aggiunto dei ritagli di carta pattern in due angoli opposti, così come il titolo.

I mat the photo with vellum and other wool and cotton threads and added my journaling on a project life card. And that's it!

Ho incorniciato la foto con del vellum e altri fili di cotone e di lana e ho aggiunto le mie annotazioni su una card di project life. Ed ecco qua!

Princess in Training

Tracy here with another layout for our Girly Girl monthly theme. This photo I used was perfect for the Princess papers and I couldn't have come up with a better title.

Pink Glitter Journaling Tags

Other Supplies:
Washi Tape
Foil Cardstock

To start I layered the photo on some pink, brown and foil cardstock and placed it in the middle of the back of the Girl Swirl Glittered Cardstock. I then cut out the title from the Glitter Word Titles and inked the edges and popped it up for some dimension at the bottom of the photo.

I then cut out two strips from the Princess Cardstock, inked them and placed them above and below the photo and then added some pink chevron washi tape along the top and bottom of the page. I also added a large pink photo corner to two of the pages corners and added some Dew Drops  to them.

I used one of the Baby Girl Tags as my journaling tag and sprinkled some more Dew Drops above it.

I took the Girl Crown Glittered Cardstock and cut several of the crowns out with a circle punch. One I layered on the back of one of the Doillie Die Cuts and popped it up for dimension. 

The other crowns were layered on some tulle and placed down the left side of the page and I then wound a string of pearls around them. The tulle was from my stepdaughters baby shower for this daughter in the photo. I'll have to add that bit of info as some hidden journaling.

For the last bit I fussy cut one of the Pink Glitter Journaling Tags and added it above the photo. 

And there you have it! Another girly layout of my stepdaughter and granddaughter. 

Thanks for stopping by!
