Avery Elle and Perfect Paper Crafting week: sharing a project life spread


It's Perfect Paper Crafting and Avery Elle week!  This week the Avery Elle design team is playing with many of Perfect Paper Crafting's most popular products such as their Perfect Layers tools and their Perfect AirBrush.  After visiting here, be sure to check out the Perfect Paper Crafting blog for even more inspiration!  Be sure to comment on our blogs throughout to week to be entered to win one of two prizes - a $50 Avery Elle Gift Certificate or a $50 Perfect Paper Crafting Gift Certificate!


I used Perfect Paper Crafting's Perfect AirBrush and Avery Alpha ELLE-ment die to make the title page of my project life spread. I started the project life this year to record the special moments of our life. This is the first page of four to record our kids' annual five day music camp to Seabeck. 




I cut the letter mask out with Eclipse tape (supplies are in the bottom picture), adhered the letters on the card and airbrushed with Tombow marker in three colors. After I got the effect I like, I removed the letter mask, stamped the second title with Avery Elle Fun with Letters stamp set. The patterned paper strip on the left is from Avery Elle the Brights collection.


I stamped Avery Elle Fun with Letters stamp set on the ferry ride insert with several Avery Elle ink colors. The fun filled days insert title was also created with the same stamp set. I heat-embossed the letters first, then water-colored with water down Avery Elle ink.


The colorful heart was from Lots of Love stamp set, and the sentiment is from Aim high stamp set. 


The insert with sundial at the bottom right was matted with paper from the Brights collection and 'Heart' is from Aim high stamp set again. I had a lot fun to create this page with supplies I already have instead of using store bought journaling cards.

Here us a closed look of the title page and supplies used to create it. The white paper roll is eclipse tape, my favorite masking tape.

Avery Elle Simply Said Happy

Happy Tuesday! I am sharing a card made with Avery Elle Simply Said Happy stamp and die set. I used my Inktense watercolor pencils to create the background. Then the circles and sketched dots were stamped with Avery Elle Fizz, Mimosa, and Raspberry ink. Word Happy were cut out twice, once with Raspberry card stock and again with New Moon card stock. Two die cuts were layered with a little bit offset to create a shadow effect. A little sequins are all need for this happy card.

Avery Elle Dotted Die

Happy Tuesday! I am sharing a card made with Avery Elle Dotted die, Many thanks stamp set, Petals & stems stamp and matching die. Did you see the yummy patterned paper on the card front? It is a new Avery Elle product - 6 x 6 double sided patterned paper pad. It matches some of the popular Avery Elle card stocks and ink colors!

To create the angled card stock panel, I did partial die cutting with the largest dotted die panel to cut the card stock twice. It is a perfect backdrop with the dotted edges to add a little more interest.
