If you loved Ranger Round Up 1 then you'll be just as excited for Ranger Round Up 2 to be held on Sunday, August 19th at Noon!
If you didn't attend Ranger Round Up 1, you can still attend this event since we are learning more extended versions of the first event along with some new techniques.
Pictured above is the back cover to my journal that is sticky back canvas with lots and lots of Distress stains. There must be 20 layers of color on there and the great thing is you can just keep adding color until you're happy with the results! The sparkly effects are Distress Stickles. We'll be doing more of this technique at the next event.
Here's another sneak of a two page spread using Ink Sprays and Templates:
We did this technique at the first round up but this one is slightly different.
Can you tell what the difference is if you attended the first event?
Here's another technique using Ink Sprays and Paint Dabers:
Since our next season is autumn, these two pages fit nicely into that category!
Again, this is a totally different technique from the first class!
For RR2, you will be provided additional pages to fit into your journal. All you'll have to do is punch the holes. RR2 will also include the new Metallic Distress Stains and Alcohol Inks! More techniques with Perfect Distress Powders, Perfect Pearls, Distress Markers!
So I hope I've tickled your fancy just a little bit and your calendar is cleared for Ranger Round Up 2!
The AR Girls are pleased to have you join us for the JULY RELEASE BLOG HOP! Pictured here is the new Scallop Bag and Card template that I couldn't resist turning into a mini book! Having just returned from a beach vacation with my sister, I was inspired to use Authentique's Fresh paper line for this project.
The mini book cover dimensions are the same size as the bag insert panel (A1 on the instruction sheet) and the little pages inside are cut 3-1/2" x 3-1/4" with the binding on the 3-1/2" side. There are 12 pages plus two white coin envelopes cut in half to use as little tuck-ins for journaling spots or extra items.
Here's another view of the back side of the bag together with the mini book to give a better idea of the scale. The mini is inserted into the bag with the binding edge going in first.
Next is the new Folder-Organizer template and I couldn't wait to use Graphic 45 Old Curiosity Shoppe for this project!
The template is so darling and assembles beautifully. I see this project on my desk holding all sorts of unfinished card fronts or for notes to keep in one place. Of course I had to add 'feet' to give a higher dimension to the overall piece. They are painted with a Ranger Acryllic Paint Daber in Stream.
Here's a view from the other side:
To win one of the new release templates just leave a comment on each designer's blog and you'll automatically be entered in the drawing. On Saturday, July 28th, re-visit each blog to see who each designer has chosen as their random winner. The winner will have a choice of ONE of the new templates.
So, off you go to the next designer and happy hopping!
Okay, I'm not one for anything too cute, but as I was gazing upon the cover of Scrapbooks etc. Feb. 2012 magazine on the floor of my craft room. Why is it on the floor you ask? Isn't everything we're not currently working on on the floor!?!?
Any-hoot, I was inspired to create my own owl that is mostly punched from its head, eyes, nose, wings, feet, and branch! It will make a great Club card project!!! I'm also gaga over Authentique papers and thought the Gathering papers being orange (my fav color!) and turquoise are very summery.
We will make other cards, of course, but this one needed to be sneak peeked. Also, Operation Write Home was so successful, we are including a card to give and to keep every month at Club!
Hi, Lyn here and welcome to another fun 3d challenge on Paper Craft Planet! Today we are altering a binder ring to create a dimensional embellishment on a card. The star card is from our Sketch Challenge archives and can be found HERE. All the papers are from Crate Paper's Random collection. I have a lot of miscellaneous binder rings in my stash because I love making mini books with them. If you aren't familiar with what a binder ring is, here's a photo of 3 of them:
They are readily available at office supply stores but are also found through scrapbooking suppliers as well. Now that you know what I'm working with, all you need is twine, string, jute, sissel, ribbon, raffia, or anything else you can think of to use to wrap around the ring! I used simple string that is thicker than twine that I found in a home improvement store. Here's how the ring looks when it is wrapped:
Be sure to start wrapping at the hinge and ending at the hinge. I used a glue dot at the beginning of the wrapping process and tied a simple knot at the end. I knew I'd be using a glue gun to add my flower embellishment later and would be cutting away the extra tail and hiding the bulky hinge section.
All that is left is to decorate the ring! Here I added a punched circle of a matching pattern paper behind the ring. A Prima sentiment 'lucky' and flower along with some turquoise string finished the altered ring!
If you'd like to play along, upload a photo of your altered binder ring to the Paper Craft Planet gallery using the keyword 3d173. That's it now go play!!!!
Kathy asked me to host this week's crop and I was thrilled to get another opportunity to work on my 12x12 layout skills! I will admit that the more I do this, the more I'm not suffering a panic attack every time I gaze upon that gigantic big square! We'll be using Pink Paislee Indigo Blue papers and I just loved the greys, yellows and soft turquoise colors. Oh! And we'll also be making from scratch every flower you see here with punches and hand tearing. We'll also be using the new May Arts ribbon trim/twiney stuff and washi tape. Hope you can join us!
