Hi friends! Dana here today sharing my December Daily album and foundation pages that I put together using the covers from a Little Golden Book and the gorgeous This is Magic Seasonal Kit featuring stunning products from Les Papiers de Pandore.
I used a journaling spot from one of the cut apart patterned papers from the kit to record the year. I embellished it with one of the sticker labels.
I used the We R Memory Keepers Mini Cinch Bundle Book Binding Kit to secure the covers and pages of this album together. This was my first time using the Cinch and I didn't have any problems. (Heidi Swapp created an instructions video for Scrapbook.com that was extremely helpful if you are also new to book binding.) I embellished the binding wires with colorful bulb embellishments from my stash and the silver wreaths from the kit.
I lined the front and back covers of the album with patterned paper from the kit. I also created a metallic silver lined pocket from a chipboard file folder and the silver cardstock from the kit. There are plenty of designs to use for embellishments on the two cut apart patterned papers from the collection. The sticker labels are perfect for adding a pop of color to the page.
I used a combination of white cardstock, patterned paper, acetate, and vellum to create the pages for this album. In total, I used 12 8.5x11 pieces of white cardstock, 5 12x12 pieces of patterned paper, and 5 pieces from the Mintopia Patterned Vellum and Acetate Pad. I used several colors of ink to layer stamped designs on the white cardstock pages to keep track of the days, which I will circle as I fill the album pages.
I'll be back at the end of December to share this finished album, so stop by again then!

Hi everybody! Happy Thanksgiving! Nicole here with a variety of art journal spreads I created using my gel plate, acrylic paint and Art Journal! I created these spreads during the month at different times. Whenever I felt the need to get messy, I grabbed a page and started playing! I recommend playing with paint whenever you're feeling stressed or overwhelmed with life. It really does help!
When playing with gel plates, a tiny drop of acrylic paint goes a long way. Grab some paper and just play... Don't worry if the images aren't as clear...just play and add layers of colors and patterns or whatever you want to do!
Use a brayer to help apply pressure over the art journal page.
You can play with your stencils too... to create a fun background!
Here are a variety of pages I created using paints and stencils and anything else I could find. :) If you're looking to try something new, try playing with gel plates! We have some available in the shop and I believe we have a few Gelli Printing Kits and art journals as well! Grab them while you can.
For this page, I used the gel plate and pulled the green, pink and purple colors onto the journaling page. Then I used the Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste from The Crafter's Workshop over the 6x6 stencil to create the patterns. Once the paste was completely dry, I used a gel medium to glue down the embellishments. Super simple and fun to make!
I used a blending tool to blend in the wheat stalks using a small drop of paint. The circle was created using light blue paint on the gel plate stamped on the page. The Gelli Printing Explore & Learn Kit is on sale in the shop!
I used the Limited Kit, Bliss to create these fun mixed media pages. That lace trim is sooooo beautiful I didn't want to cut it... We still have a few acrylic paints from the Bliss Limited Edition as well.
Are you ready to play with gel plates yet? Don't forget to wear an apron before you start or you'll end up with paint on your favorite hoodie...just saying! Thanks so much for visiting today!
These are the stencils I used on these journal pages in case you wanted to know.

It's Isa today on the blog and I am thrilled to present you a new project made with the Imagine collection by Wilma Rodriguez for Mintopia Studio. You can purchase the collection here. It's a wonderful collection, created for any scrap lover here and it does not miss any detail or scrapbook tool that we may need when creating our projects.
The covers of this mini album are made with the acetate of the Imagine collection. For the spine I have used cardboard paper and one paper from the collection, and obviously one of the wonderful ribbons of the collection. They are one of the best complements that I have found to scrap in a very long time.
Going on the inside of the mini album, I have to confess that I add a bit of everything! Tabs, torn paper, envelopes, pockets, buttons, everything with the embellishments of the collection. I even added a waterfall mini album inside! And each block of the album is a pocket so you can add extra pages or tags inside.
As you can see, all the pages have different details and flaps to add pictures, and all of them are pockets for extra pictures. It is a project with a lot of space for lots of pictures! So I hope I have inspired you to create a mini album for tons of pictures and that you like the Imagine collection that is absolutely brilliant! I will see you soon on the blog with new ideas and projects! Take care and stay healthy. Love,
It's Isa today on the blog and I am here today with a new layout inspired by...my love for copta books! Since I discovered them and mastered how to make them I haven't stopped making them! I feel soooooooo relaxed when I make them! You cannot imagine that! It's like my creative yoga. That is why I felt inspired by the picture of the layout to create it. It is a picture that a good friend of mine took after a whole day teaching coptic binding in her scrapbooking store in Barcelona.
For this layout I have used the wonderful collection Imagine by Wilma Rodriguez for Mintopia Studio. You can find all the products of this collection and more from this brand here.
I have used ripped stripes of paper from the collection which I sewed with my sewing machine. I also did some fussy cutting for the flowers that I have used to decorate the project.
For decorating the picture I have used a dolly and some die cuts from the Imagine collection. For the title I have used the puffy alphabet that comes with the Imagine collection.
To add some finishing touches to the layout I have added some puffy stickers to decorate and also I have glued some sequins from the Imagine collection itself. They add some elegance and shiny to the project, although I have to confess that it was hard to glue them, LOL!
I hope you liked this project and that scrapbook and your creations inspire you to document these wonderful creative moments. See you soon with new projects! Take care.
It's Isa today on the blog and I am thrilled to present you a new project made by one of the collections of the moment: Imagine, designed by Wilma Rodriguez for Mintopia Studio. It is one of my favorite Spanish brands and for me it's such an honor to work with them for international sites!!
On today's post I will show you a layout I've made with papers of the collection and die cuts, playing with watercolors and the layers of papers. You can find the collection and other products from Mintopia here.
To start with the project, I made a background with different colors and sets of watercolors. I love them and I love using them for creating backgrounds. I made different drops of paint of different sizes. It is very easy to make once you have it under control, it's just learning how to play with the brush and water and let the magic begin! I used the colors that appear on the papers and die cuts that I use. What I like about this collection is that it has endless combinations of colors.
For the layering of the project I have used scraps of paper that I had once I finished a mini album that you will see very soon with this collection. I didn't think much about cutting or measuring them. I always take the picture as my reference and then I start building the cluster of papers behind it. I put some vellum too, thread of different colors (yellow, pink and white) and then to decorate some die cuts and puffy stickers from the collection.
For the title of the layout I have used the alphabet of the Imagine collection itself. It's puffy and all the letters have different colors so it combines with mostly everything!
I hope you liked this new layout and I hope that you create beautiful things with such beautiful collection. See you real soon with new projects! Take care. Love,
Hello everyone! It's Isa today on the blog and I am very happy to be here to present you a new project. This time I want to show you how I have recycled some pages of an old Bullet Journal and I have turned them into a wonderful notebook to write down all my scrapbook ideas and inspiration that comes to my mind.
I used thick cardboard for the covers and I used papers and all kinds of complements of the Imagine collection by Mintopia. You can find all the products of this brand here. As it is a collection with tons of scrapbooking themed decorations I had my mind quite clear at the time of creating this notebook.
Using papers of the collection and some tabs that are included in the die cuts set, I have made some divisions on the pages so I can classify everything that I write down on the notebook. To join the two covers I have used a piece of cloth that I had at home and I think it gives great contrast with the colors of the collection. I also included some elastic to close the notebook and on the inside, where I have included a pocket, another elastic so I can have a pen inside the notebook.
For the cover, I have combined several die cuts. I really like them! I think it's the perfect collection for a scrapbooking fan.
I hope you like the project and I hope to inspire you to recycle old notebooks and turn them into great new notebooks. See you soon with new creations! Take care. Isa
