Tips & Tricks with Lisa & Jil

Hi, It’s Lisa & Jil here with you today.

I have a 12×12 LO to share with you and Jill has a really cool mini book.

I’ll start with my 12×12 page that I’ve made using the November kit.

I’ve been waiting to scrapbook these photos of when we met Olaf in the Summer. When I saw the acrylic pieces in this months kit I knew it was time to tell this sweet story/

A play on the title and instead of the Frozen song called ‘Let it Go’ I’ve named this page ‘Let it Snow’.

I wanted to add some extra colour and texture to these acrylics so I’ve added some embroidery thread.

I added a teeny amount of tape to the back and then stitched the thread across the centres.

I really love how this looks.

I also added some metallic gold pen dots around the white frame of the photos. I thought this draws in the eye a little more and it goes really well with the snowflakes on the paper in the background.

I’m so happy with this page.

And here is Jil with this amazing mini book. Jill is creating using the new December Kit.

”Here is my art journal made with the materials in the Memory Keeping kit this month. Christine Everett has provided instructions and a tip sheet in the kit, but I thought it would be fun to show blog readers what one book looks like as it comes together.”

”This is the beginning: cut up the bags and tags to your preferred size. I added washing tape and stitching to seal the openings”.

”Punch holes measuring about three inches down for the center, an inch and a half for the top, an inch up from the bottom”.

”I’m creating in my little book for an art journal group I belong to, Get Messy, and this is the start of a season focused on freedom. I’m using the rub-ons from the kit, the two alphas, die cuts from the classified kit, pom-pom ribbon from last month’s planner kit, and even the cute packaging!”.

I hope you’ve enjoyed our blog today and have given you some ideas.

Have a great day. Lisa & Jil
