Hello Everyone, it’s Piroska here today with my latest scrapbook layout for CUT toYOU. In February we have great collaboration with Spiegelmom-Scraps, you could already have seen many gorgeous inspirations with the amazing Fab Foil. As I show you my layout, I’m going to tell you what not to do when using a Fab Foil… Interested? Then read along 😉
First of all: watch the great How to? video of Sara Scraps and do what she says. If she says you should use a smooth cardstock, then don’t try to turn the textured cardstock over to think it’ll do, because it won’t… The first mistake I’ve made.
After getting some bits and pieces of leftover smooth white cardstock (I ran out of them, I blame the pandemic), I began to release the silver Fab Foil of Spiegelmom Scraps and adhere it to the smooth cardstock. Take your time, if you don’t want to get bubbles. The second mistake I’ve made.
When I was ready, I started to cut out the Sweetheart Banners Cut File from the February Release. I used the settings Sara advised in her video: Heavy Coverstock, Blade 7, 2 passes. It cut out and came down easily from the cutting mat, but for the next time I should use a new blade, as the edges are not as smooth as I wished… The third and last mistake I’ve made… ;-P
For my background I used a watercolour paper and used some Catherine Pooler ink pads (Drive-In, Sauna) for watercoloring, the purple color is from the Prima Watercolor Confections Pastell Dreams Set. I backed the cut file with some patterned papers of the Bohemian Dreams collection of Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I chose the Beautiful Mess paper as a frame for my layout, so I chose colours to match that patterned paper.
I matted my photo, and fussy cut some hearts from the Gypsy Heart paper and added them colour-matching on the background. Finally I coloured the title with the Drive-In ink pad and the purple watercolour I used for the background.
It hope I could inspire you to try this Fab Foil, beacuse it’s an awesome product! Inspite my failures I would like to make some more layouts with it 😀 So get some new cut files from the shop, order the foils from Spiegelmom Scraps and start creating with Fab Foils! 😉
