Fun Friday with Pam

Tiny Dancer Glitter Tutorial
This isn't a new technique, however it might spark an idea for you to use.
The first thing I did was choose a neutral background and fixed, double sided tape in a rough outline of the sticker I was using.
I cut her out close to the lines. Next I mounted the sticker under a 'transfer tape' This allows for an easy positioning and release. You can see by the tiny pieces, some were left behind on the sticker. Don't worry, you can transfer them with craft tweezers or glitter those spots first.
I centered her over the tape background and pressed her down.
Working from darkest to lightest color I carefully removed the sticker body and filled in the exposed tape areas with glitter. 
It is helpful to work from the bottom up.
Once I had it glittered to my taste. I then cut her very close to the edge and mounted her on my layout.

Say Cheese Lawn Fawn Mice!

Howdy, and happy Tuesday! Karla back today, and I hope your week is going great so far. I've had a lot of crafty stuff going on lately, and today I wanted to share these sweet Lawn Fawn Thankful Mice! They are so cute, and perfect for this Thanksgiving card.

I had a piece of background paper in a Smash book that had the Say Cheese sentiment on it, so I cut it into a banner shape and added it to my card, layering the swiss cheese image from the same paper behind my Simple Stories Polaroid cut out. I layered the mason jar and adorable mice onto the photo, using some popdots for dimension. A pretty piece of striped Simple Stories paper was just right for the base of my card.

I cut the mason jar from velum using a metal die and my Cuttlebug and added some of the yummy cheese inside. I used a little tea bag tag from the Love You A Latte set and a tiny heart to the top of my jar.

Inside, I used the sentiment included with the set and another piece of cheese along with that cute heart stamp again.

A few sequins and buttons from the 28 Lilac Lane collection finish off my card!

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I hope you have a wonderful week!

A Flip Book for Allison!

Karla here today, and I have a flip book to share with you! These are just so fun to make when you want to play with different supplies and techniques. This is a book I swapped with a sweet girl, Allison - you can find her IG here with links to her YouTube channel - and she sent me the cutest flip book too! I used Project Life cards as my base and attached them with washi tape. I embossed a pretty sentiment with gold embossing powder, and used some soft pink crinkly ribbon to tie the outside. I love adding my recipients name on the front to personalize it even more!


Here's a look at all the pages I included. I added stickers, paper ephemera, handmade tags, 3x4 journaling cards as smaller flaps, stamps, doilies and sequins, along with some goodies for Ally to use! 
 Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you found some inspiration to create something fun for yourself or a friend.

Fun Friday with Pam


I have never scrapbooked in chronological order. I tend to just do the layouts according to whatever strikes my fancy. I found this paper pack by Couture in Selena's little green truck. Scrapendipity It is so beautiful, the photo doesn't even do it justice. I did some fussy cutting, found a paint chip in my favourite color wheel. Cut up some of the hundreds of beach photos I have. {I try really hard not to get any other tourists in them LOL}
 
Speaking of which......
