Layout using Bo Bunny, 7 Gypsies and Tim Holtz!

People have been asking us for ideas on how to make Scrapbook Pages using Tim Holtz/Ranger items for the Scrapbook Studio/Scrap Affairs competition. ( For those of you who don't know, you can win prizes worth over R3000 by just entering one of your creations using 3 or more Tim Holtz/Ranger products prominently) We created this layout to show you how easy it is to incorporate these products onto your scrapbook pages.

Using the Bo Bunny Welcome Home Collection, we added some elements using Tim Holtz products by die cutting the tickets with the Tim Holtz Ticket Strip die. Then we stamped the ticket and the wording using Ranger Archival Coffee Ink. The tickets were die cut from some of the left over Bo Bunny papers. They were then blended with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. A little birdie was cut out from really old left over patterned paper, and glued behind a fragment. The "E is for Escape" is a very popular 7 Gypsies 97% complete sticker, filled with all the elements you could want for a holiday project. You can find it here

We used FabScraps Chipboard corners that were embossed with Tim Holtz Broken China and Peeled Paint Distress Embossing Powders. Over that a layer of Peeled Paint and Broken China Distress Stickles were added. We used the Distress Range, as this is a "manly" page, and we did not want too much Bling. Of course, if these were photos of a tropical holiday or something else, you could just have used normal Stickles and Adirondack Embossing Powders for a smoother, glitzier finish

Some journaling and a few blings here and there finish off the page. So, nothing should be stopping you from creating a page that uses 3 or more of these products! Please send your entries to bianca@scdcreations.co.za. You can enter as many times as you want! The closing date is 5 February. Good luck and happy crafting!!

  1. Hi there,
    Such a gorgeous layout!

    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a lovely comment:)

    In reply to your question about the Cameo. Yes, it will cut up to 350gsm card stock. I haven't cut anything very detailed, yet. But everything you see on my blog has been cut on 300/350 gsm card stock. I already own the original Silhouette, and that struggled cutting thicker card, even with two passes it would only cut up to 200 gsm. But the Cameo is brilliant!!

    For the thicker card, I have my blade set at 6, but it goes right up to 10. I hope this answers your question. If you would like to know more just ask:)
