In Belgium we are in the middle of the Easter holidays, that is two weeks off from school and both DD and hubbie are at home – my husband is a teacher. It does keep me from working on a normal pace (even though it’s good to have them home). But I have two new packs for you, a new set of Whimsical Templates, and a set of digitally stitched shapes.
Whimsical Templates Vol.02
These templates were created from my own personal layouts and – just like the Whimsical Templates Vol.01 – they offer you a mix of artsy and realistic style elements to create your layouts.
Clip your photos to the clipping masks, recolour the paint layers (or clip a beautiful paper to them), add some embellishments (or not), done! You can remove the frames and use the paint layers as clipping masks for a very artsy style layout, or remove the paint and use the frames only for a more clean layout… Play with blend modes and opacities for surprising results… Create your own unique layouts over and over again!
The templates come in PSD and TIFF format and – this is new – I am also providing them in PNG and PAGE format.
Note to Etsy buyers: Due to the limited upload size on Etsy, I cannot provide instant download for these templates. I will send you a download link for your product within 24 hours of purchase.
Let me show you what my amazing creative team (and I) did with these templates:
Judith kept the structure of template no.2 and created this layout using my Easter Morning Collection. I love how she has clipped the papers to the paint layers. Her pictures are adorable!
Like Judith, Ange has basically kept the structure of template no. 3. And she has also used my Easter Morning Collection to create this layout. The colours of the flowers are perfect with the colours of the papers and elements!
Em has used template no. 4 and I love how she tilted it and how that adds an interesting visual aspect to the layout with the blue paper sticking out underneath. She kept the layout in blue and yellow, to match the adorable boy’s shirt. She used the stitches as a frame for the label. Em used the Easter Morning Collection.
Erin used template no.2, just like Judith. But see how she altered the position of the frames? She moved them to the other side. Same template, a whole different look, I love it! Again, the Easter Morning Collection was used to create this layout.
Another layout from Erin, this time using template no.4. She kept the structure but added one of my Stitched Shapes Vol.01 to add the journaling. And she used Easter Morning Collection.
Another layout by Ange, using template no.1. She used my A Moment Captured Collection to create this layout and used the paint layer on the right as a clipping mask for the photo. I’m guessing she also used a blend mode to make it blend with the background. Amazing layout with amazing pictures!
Barbara used template no.2 and like Erin, she moved the frames to the left. She has also scaled them down a bit. Barbara used A Moment Captured here. Great layout!
Ange has really spoiled me with this third layout, using template no.2 and I was totally surprised to see her use one of my ‘oldies but goodies’, the Vintage Tropical Papers and Vintage Tropical Transfers And Overlays. She has also used shapes from the Stitched Shapes Vol.01 set.
And here are 2 pages that I did:
I used template no.2, A Colourful Fall Paperpack and a tiny bit of the Easter Morning Collection (cream background, leaves behind the branch). I clipped the red paper that I used on the left to clip to the largest paint layer and I recoloured the other paint layers to match the photo.
For this layout I used template no.1, Easter Morning Solid Papers, Easter Morning Paint And Transfers, Watercolour Overlays Vol.01 to create the watercolour effect on the green background, A Stroke Of Luck Solid Papers, and then just colour to recolour the paint layers.
Stitched Shapes Vol.01
This set of stitched shapes will help you add texture and dimension to your projects. They add a unique accent to any layout or art journal page! Use them to create frames, journal spots, or use them as an interesting visual detail. So easy and so versatile. This pack will be one to use over and over again! ‘Stitched Shapes Vol.01’ includes 12 creamy coloured stitched shapes in a shadowed and non-shadowed version, and 12 mix colour stitched shapes (cream+grey), in a shadowed and non-shadowed version. I had so much fun creating these.
See the stitched shapes in action :
First up is this amazing geometric layout by Eszter. Like no other Eszter always manages to create something totally unusual. She has used one of the stitched triangles and repeated that shape throughout her layout – simply amazing. I’m totally in love with this. She has used the Easter Morning Solid Papers.
Another amazing layout from guest creative team member Barbara. I’m a true fan of Barbara’s layouts and I love what she did her, using some of the stitched circle shapes, A Moment Captured, Wonderland, My One True Love and look at that: one of my Blue Halloween Papers, one of the first paperpacks I ever made!
Em, another amazing scrapper, has created this layout using My One True Love and she used some of the stitched circles as frames. I love it, I love it.
Ange has used one of the stitched rectangles and my A Moment Captured Collection to create this artsy layout. Don’t you love that adorable girl with the hat??
A clean and simple layout by Erin. She used the Easter Morning Collection and some of the stitched hexagons. Simple but effective!
