Hi everyone Marelle here!

I have been playing with the gorgeous papers from the Heritage range - I thought I would share my work with you today.

Materials I used:

  • One sheet of Fabscraps Heritage Script Paper
  • Fabscraps large brass cameo : I painted it red to match the mist
  • Book Paper - from an old Dictionary
  • X-Press It Double Sided Tape size:6mm
  • X-Press It Glue Marker
  • X-Press It Clear Glue
  • Canvas alphas
  • Red Mist
  • Small black and white photograph
  • Cream Canvas alphas
  • Script stamp
  • Black stamp pad
  • Black scrapbooking pen

I have a created a simple layout that uses only one small black and white photo, I like the use of lots of negative space which draws your attention not only to the photo, but to the altered cameo. I used X-Press it clear glue to attach the cameo to the page - it is the best adhesive clear glue I have ever used ! It sticks so well there is not a worry about embellishments falling off your page when you use X-Press it clear glue!
I also enjoyed using the X-Press it Glue Marker for the tiny alphas on this layout - it worked like a dream!
To further draw the eye to the photo I used some red mist and sprayed the ink at the top of the page and tapped the paper to dribble the mist down, and I repeated the same process across the page to form a "frame like" appearance.

I love this particular paper as it lends itself to a simple layout such as mine. I cannot wait to try some mixed media on it for a completely different look!

I love showing the flexibility of Fabscraps products, whether you like simple layouts or busy artsy ones Fabscraps will have the paper and embellishments to assist you to achieve an amazing project.

Some punched FabScraps stars (leftover from another project)
and a recycled envelope (one of my favourite things to create with).
So why not pop on over to my blog to see the video and to see what I created with some FabScraps products.

FabScraps Heritage Range - “Heart & Soul”

Hi everyone I’m Sharmaine and I’ve been playing with some of the gorgeous papers that are in the FabScraps “Heritage” range. 

Products I have used:
FabScraps Heritage paper
FabScraps Die-Cut Grey Chipboard “Heart & Soul”
FabScraps Boxed Filigree Embellishment
FabScraps Pearls
FabScraps Silk Flower
FabScraps Jelly Brad
X-Press It TripleTac Glue
X-Press It 6mm Double Sided Tape 
X-Press It Glue Marker


First thing I did was cut up some of the paper into 2” squares
I then adhered these to some scrap cardstock using the TripleTac glue


By using the glue, instead of tape, I was able to work quickly and get a lovely coverage all over the page.
To make my background more uniform (and not loose the photo into the background) I covered the background with some white paint.
I then crumpled up the page,


to create a worn, quilted look, with specks of the gorgeous pattern paper showing through.


I then backed my photo with some layers of the gorgeous pattern papers,


before going to town adding embellishments.
A gorgeous silk flower


and a FabScraps metal butterfly, kept in place with a FabScraps brad.
I’ve added some FabScraps pearls, adhered with the X-Press It Glue Marker .


I’ve also used the glue marker to add the chipboard.
The chipboard was perfect for the title of my layout

Thanks for stopping by today.

FabScraps Summer Range- 'We Saw Seashells By The Seashore'

Hello everyone and welcome to the all new FabScraps Oz blog!!!

We have some amazing products and some wonderful ways to show you how to make the most of these beautiful products so without further ado I will first introduce myself....
My name is Tarrah McLean and today I am going to show you the most gorgeous summer range you have EVER seen. It is so adorable and fun and easy to create with as well. 
FabScraps have some pre-cut pinwheels in this gorgeous summer range, they were super quick to put together and I have included them on my layout for you today.

First of all I gathered everything I wanted to use:

  • FabScraps Summer Range including the Summer Pinwheels
  • FabScraps Chipboard Anchors
  • FabScraps Metal Embellishments
  • FabScraps Pearls 
  • X-Press It Clear Gel Glue
  • X-Press It 6mm Double Sided Tape

I created my pinwheels first and as these are already pre-cut it was super duper quick and easy. I attached them using a fabulous FabScraps pearl embellishment.

I made two small pinwheels and 1 large pin wheel for my layout...

 These fabulous anchor chippie pieces are also perfect for leaving raw or altering as I have done by inking it up a little..

Next I began to put my layout together by trimming my papers 

and designing my layout. I chose to use a black and white 4 x 6 landscape photo as this suited my design and  it went so well with the FabScraps Summer range.

I also added some of the FabScraps super cute metal embellishments from the Summer range to add more detail and to enhance the title of my layout.

How cute does the starfish metal charm look tucked in with the pinwheels?

I chose to leave my anchor chippie piece partially raw to give a worn effect....

 and here is my finished layout....
