We Are Family | Bernii Miller

Hello Flutterby peeps

Bernii here with you today to share with you my latest layout that I created with the filler cards from the " We Are" collection. This is was a layout that I pulled together using the left over pieces from my stash. I love how it turned out and how the white background really helps the bright colours of the card to pop. 

 I cut down the filler cards to 4 x 4 inches and then cut those in half again to create a triangle. I was inspired by a quilt magazine and pin wheels that have been popping up in my news feeds. 

To help finish of this layout I used the teal acrylic title .. which you can check out in the store HERE.

 Well thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you have found some inspiration with the gorgeous Flutterby Designs goodies. 

Till next time

Much love

Stay Fierce! I Chrissi Mannix

Hello Lovelies,
Today, as promised, I decided to play with the new Flutterby Designs "Round Randoms"Art Foamies, and my Gel Plate. FYI-So much fun. I then turned one of my prints, into an art journal page.
The new Art Foamies are perfect to play with on a Gel Plate, and as a bonus, when putting them on the plate to leave an impression, I can then also use the lifted pate to ink up my stamp and apply paint to another print- 2 for 1.
Once I had finished plying with my Gel Plate, I picked out a print I wanted to work with.
Now it was time to add some details. I have recently rediscovered my paint pens. I really enjoyed drawing on my print. I went over my Art Foamie impression to add some definition and texture. Then i added little details here and there. I cut down my print  to fit into my 8x8 journal and glued it in.

I've said it before, I LOVE using the Everyday Etc Cards as focal points in my journals. The Flawsome Everyday Etc Cards are especially some of my fave to use. 
I hope you like my journal page, and think about getting some of the new Art Foamies to have a play with. Thanks for stopping by.

Just be Cool || Elisa Ablett

Hi Flutterby Fans,

Elisa here from the design team with my latest mixed media layout featuring those awesome new 'Flutterby Designs - Art Foamies Stamps - Fill It In' .

I came across this photo recently of my great nephew and my son who are only a month apart in age and are great friends, they are even in the same class at school! I wanted to scrap the photo with bright colours and a funky design as they are both pretty cool, fun kids. 

I wanted to create a background using the Art Foamies stamps with the Flutter Colour Paint on mini rectangular gel plate. I stamped the Art Foamies with black paint after making a few prints onto my background - they are fabulous to use with paint!

Let's take a closer look - 

Layer coordinating Flutterby Designs everyday-etc-cards behind your chosen photo and fussy cut your title from a past collection like 'Extreme Teen'. Add some wood veneer stars to draw your eye down the page around the photo.

Add some wood veener 'speech bubbles' and fussy cut a word or cheeky phrase from a past collection to fit in the bubble.

I added some dodgy....ahem distressed sewing or stitching to the right and left sides of my page. These are great for boy layouts!

Last elements for your design is to balance your page out by adding a small embellie cluster on the bottom left hand side including a speech bubble and wood veneer to match your page. 

Thats it from me today,

Thanks for stopping by the blog and make sure you leave some love!

Wild Adventure | Allara Bamforth

Good Morning!

I'm back on the blog again for May with a stash busting layout with a picture of my son taken about 7 years ago now. He has grown up so much.

On my background today I'vd used some Flutter Colour Paint in the shades of Sunshine Yellow, Tangerine Orange and Green Limousine and just smudged them around with my brayer. I've also added some water to the Green and splattered that over my back ground. Using the 'Macqueen' stencil, I blended some oxide inks in matching colours over the page. Next to these I've used my stitch stamps with the same colours for some interest.

My photo is matted with a variety of Everyday Etc Filler Cards from a couple of different collections including We Are and Happy Together. The page tab is also from the We Are collection. To finish off I've used the Star Stencil to draw in some random hearts and a few more stamps with black ink to tie some of the back together. The 'Wild' title was cut from the Wild Bohemian Everyday Etc cards, Adventure was one of the older Wood Veneers and the Stickers are from the current Magical AF Sticky Quotes.

And as some added interest - I found some black chipboard leaves to tuck in behind my photos.

Thanks again for taking a peek this week.

Love This | Tamara Buckler

Hey Hey Flutterby Peeps, 

I'm coming to you today from retreat with Boss Lady Neets - and it is bliss!!

I have a super messy mixed media layout to share with you today featuring the new Flutterby Art Foamies - I am in love!! 

I started this page by gessoing my background and applying dots of Flutter Colour Paint in Grape Soda and Tropicana Teal and spreading it in a cross shape across the page using a old card. I added some splatters in both colours before drying.

I used the Little Bit Love Stencil and some white gesso to add some texture and draw the white of the background into the mixed media. I then loaded up the Edgie Art Foamie stamps with some Black Mayhem Flutter Colour Paint, stamping randomly within the same cross area. I then came in with a black Posca pen and added some rough doodles and scratches. 

I matted the whole page on a 12x12 piece from the Magical AF collection, and did a messy border around my cardstock with the Posca pen. I then started to matt my photo using Everyday Etc Cards12x12 paper, and some Fussy Cuts

I embellished the page using a random combination of stickers, wood veneer, flair buttons, die cuts, and enamel dots

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I'm so excited to keep playing with these Art Foamies and seeing what I can come up with. Make sure you get over to the shop and pick some up before they are all gone. 

Big Loves,

We're All Mad Here | Rachel Dutko

Hi everyone!
Today I have 2 different projects using the same design to share with you.

I recently received some of the awesome Flutterby Designs Art Foamie stamps
and I couldn't wait to try them out on my gel plate.

I have created the background of my layout with strips of my gel prints 
I created using the  
Round Randoms Art Foamie stamps. 
I then added some watered-down 'Sunshine Yellow' Flutter Colour paint
as well as some splatters 
of Tropicana Teal Flutter Colour Paint and ink splatters.

I then added some more stamping with the Round Randoms Art Foamie 
stamps and black paint, 
as well as some smaller stamping.

I've backed my photo with some "We Are' Everyday Etc filler cards.
I also stamped the Art Foamie stamps onto some paper, 
then fussy cut them to use as embellishments within my layers.

I've cut my title from a 'We Are' Everyday Etc card.

 I've also added a page tab and a heart from Charm's Creations.

I've also created an art journal page using the same design.
I've used exactly the same gel print strips, stamping, 
fussy cut stamped circles and paint splatters.

 I've used Flutter Colour paint in Tropicana Teal through an Arty Farty stencil.

Thanks for looking

The Tan will Fade, But Memories Last- Chrissi M

Hello Lovelies,
Today I'm sharing with you a layout I made whilst playing with the new Flutterby Designs Custom Designed Art Foamie Stamps. OMG sooooo much fun. I adored playing with these new tools, and I can not wait to get out my Gel Plate and have a play-which I think will be my very next project-so stay tuned for that one.

So here is my project. This is a picture I had of Will, the last time we went to the rock pools. It was a great trip, and also the first time he and his dad, jumped off the rocks. Lots of memories.
The Good Vibes Only Collection was perfect fort his.
I started by applying paint with a silicon 'brush' to my background,then I literally threw some white paint over the green for texture. I love playing with paint.
Then I wanted to play with the new Art Foamies. I used the Round Random set. I applied white paint with a brayer to the stamp, so i would get an even and light cover of paint and a nice transfer. I applied the stamp to my background, even including the white areas, to give a tone on tone look. I didn't want to bring in another colour.
Then using the Good Vibes Only Every Day Etc Cards, I had fun making a cluster of layers behind my photo for visual interest. I kept my embellishing simple with the matching flair badges from the Good Vibes Only collection. 
I do have a video to go along with this page, so head over to the Flutterby Inspiration HQ Facebook page later today for the link.
Thanks for stopping

Adventure || By Elisa Ablett

Hi Flutterby Fans,

Elisa here from the design team with my latest layout, 
a bright and fun boy layout featuring the new Flutterby Designs Art Foamies stamps.

I absolutely love these big foam stamps, so easy to use with paint or inks and stamp wonderfully over the top of Flutter Colour Paint. 

Products used from the Shop: 

Let's check out the close ups!

Art foamies stamping in the background and circles punched from the Happily Ever After  Everyday Filler Cards lead your eye down the page to the photo.

Frame your photo with a small polaroid frame painted and stamped with the Art Foamies Stamps, the possibilities are endless.

I hand stamped the long title and adhered it down the page. 

Staples are a great way to add grunge to a boy page and also great for adhering strips of chipboard. 

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, make sure you catch me next time for a feminine layout using layering !

Dreams | Allara Bamforth

Happy Monday!

I can't believe we are already in May. Time really goes quickly these days in our busy lives.

Today's layout features the Magical AF collection with a cute photo I captured of my niece whilst she was daydreaming on the couch. I thought the title from one of the Magical AF Everyday Etc Cards was perfect for the photo 'Little girls with Dreams become women with vision'.

For this layout, I actually did everything back to front. Normally I would put together my background using some mixed media etc and then build the photo layers from there. This time I layered my photo first and stuck that all together. My photo is layered in various designs from the Magical AF Everyday Etc Cards and to this I added my title, which happened to be the first thing I picked out to accompany my photo.

I've then cut half a piece of We are Family 12 x 12 paper 'I'll Keep You'. To this piece I used some feathered brushstrokes of Flutter Colour Paint in Artic White and also used the Migraine Madness stencil with the white paint. Next I've taken the Sugar Sprinkes stencil and dabbed the Tropicana Teal through on the 'I'll Keep You' paper tand then carried that over to my white background cardstock.

Once this had dried I stuck it all together. I felt I need some more pink to tie in the design, so I added some splatters of Raspberry Punch to the top and bottom of the page..

From the Sticky Quick Quotes I scattered acround some hearts and the rainbow and cloud. Because you can never have enough hearts I've also added a few Puffy Heart Stickers. The Magic title is one of the Die Cut Bibs and Bobs.

Thanks for taking a peek of my layout this Monday morning. I hope you all have a fabulous week.

Till next post,

Unique | Rachel Dutko

Hi everyone!

Rachel back with you today with another layout using the 'Magical AF' collection.

For this layout I've pulled out some purple and pink tones to combine with black.

To create my mixed media background I started by swiping some 
purple acrylic paint onto white cardstock with an old gift card. 
I then applied some modelling paste through a 'Words Of Wisdom' stencil.

I used the 'unique' stencil word as my title, over some strips of 
Everyday Etc cards and cardstock.
I also added a snippet strip.

I layered some Magical AF Everyday Etc filler cards under my photo.

I added a flair button, some page tabs and some stickers.

I also added a heart from Charm's Creations.

I finished my page with some purple ink splatters.

Thanks for looking

Life is always fun with you | Tamara Buckler

Hello Flutterby Friends,

I'm back again to share a new layout with you today. I've given my unicorn filled creations of the last few weeks a bit of a rest because I thought you might be a bit sick of me! Instead I've mixed the awesome Magical AF collection back with some older bits and pieces just to show you how versatile it really is. 

I started this page with an awesome Geometric Cut File from Cut to You which had nice open spaces to showcase some of the 12x12 paper from both the Magical AF collection and the We Are collection - I used 'The Sky is the Limit', 'Weathered Love', and 'Unconditional' papers. I love how the Cut File left space around the edge to use a border of the 'Sky is the Limit' paper. 

I have added some paper layers behind my photo with paper scraps from the 12x12 papers, as well as pieces from random Everyday Etc Cards. I didn't want to add too many fussy embellishements at this point, so decided to dip into my wood veneer collection - I think most of these are from the Flawsome pack.  I altered these, as I felt there were a little too many timber/brown elements already, by rubbing white Posca Pen around the edges and then smudging this paint across the piece with a baby wipe. I love the whitewashed feeling this gives. 

To create my title, I mixed some Die Cut Bits & Bobs and some White Sticky Alphas. The 'always' and 'you' weren't the right colours for my page, so I altered these again with a Posca Pen, and did the same with some Die Cut hearts to carry the black up the page. 

To finish off the page, I added a Die Cut from the 'We run the World' collection, a Flair Button and some white Flutterby Colour Paint splatters. 

This page was pretty simple, but I love the high impact geographic style that showcases the beautiful Flutterby papers. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Big Loves,
Tam xo
