Gift bags by Kasia Bogatko

Hello,
It’s Kasia here with quick and easy project. This time I want to show you a video tutorial for gift bags. I used amazing new collections – Cotton Candy Dreams and Writer’s Block.


For every bag I used only one collection. I wanted to show you their different character. A large number of add-ons and components allows you to create a wide variety of projects.


This bags are perfect for small gifts straight from the heart.

And this is my video tutorial, please feel free to take some inspiration from it.

Have a nice day,
Kasia

Music is the voice of the soul by Riikka Kovasin

Hello there everyone! It’s Riikka here today sharing a process video with you! There’s no special technique involved in this layout although there’s different mediums and materials in use. My goal was to show you a fun composition and using a simple tool to add a lot of detail to a page – a stapler. You also get to see basic process when I create a layout.

The page is about a lovely surprise I got in the mail some time ago. When I was attending a Turisas show a couple of years ago, one of the bands performing before them was Thaurorod. I didn’t know the band before but enjoyed the energy the singer radiated to the crowd and took a couple of pictures. I then tweeted them and long story short, a year after I met the singer and spent a day in Stockholm with him. Now that they are about to release their new album they had a competition connected to one of the songs and as it happens, I won. So I got two of their guitar picks and plan to make a piece of jewelry out of them!



I started the layout with some mixed media, creating a background for the piece. For that I used gesso, watercolors, a pencil and some stamping. Then on top I  created the detailed and fun layer using text stickers, die cuts and a stapler. Hope you enjoy!
