Believe in Magic by Karine Gagnon

Dear crafty friends,
I’m here today to share a layout I created for 7 Dots Studio.

I started with the Dreamscapes 9mm 12×12 paper. On it, I created a mixed media background using inks, pastes and sprays. I also used the Hazy Days Clear Stamps, the Dreamscapes Clear Stamps and the Thoughts Keeper Clear Stamps with black ink. For my paper cluster, I used papers from the Dreamscapes 6×6 Pad and tags from the Dreamscapes 12×12 Tags.


To embellish my layout, I used the Dreamscapes 6×12 Word Stickers, the Dreamscapes Die-cut Elements 6×12 and the Dreamscapes Element Stickers 6×12. I also used a few flowers and one of the UmWowStudio Dreamscapes Tell Tall Tales Flair.

Spread your wings by Karine Gagnon

Dear crafty friends,
I’m here today to share a video tutorial I created using the brand new Paint Chips collection. Dee Dee created magic once again! The colors are just amazing!

I chose the beautiful Nightshade 12×12 paper. I created a mixed media background using the Hatched stencil and some graphite texture paste. I also used the Paint Chips Clear Stamps with black ink and with gold embossing powder. I created a paper cluster with papers from the 6×6 pad and tags from the 12×12 Tags.


I decorated my layout with flowers and flair badges. I also added a few chipboard pieces. I used the Paint Chips 6×12 Element Stickers and the Paint Chips 6×12 Die-cut Elements, to add some yellow around my cluster. My title comes from the Northern Lights 6×12 Word Stickers sheet. I thought the colors matched my layout pretty well.



I filmed my process for you to see it.

Always by Karine Gagnon

Dear crafty friends,
I’m sharing with you today my latest layout created for 7 Dots Studio. It is called «Always».

I started my layout with the Fortune paper from the Fortune-teller collection. I love that paper. I created a mixed media background on it, using, paints first, and then stencils. I chose the Letters Stencil from the Writers Block collection. I used it with graphite texture paste. I then selected the Squares Stencil from the Soulmates collection. I used it with black heavy gesso.


Next step was stamping. I used the Hazy Days Clear Stamps with black Archival Ink. To match my picture, I used the Fortune-teller 12×12 Tags and pieces of the Tarot paper, also from the Fortune-teller collection. I used die-cut shapes here and there on my layout, to create some texture. I used some of the 6×12 Word Stickers from the Fortune-teller collection in three key places on my layout.



I hope you like my layout. Have a great day.
Karine xx
