Nicole Nowosad here today to share a project using some fun and sparkly glitter washi tape! I really wanted to use the washi tape and have it resemble something more than just strips, so I decided to add it to the back of a title I had cut from some simple white cardstock.
There are so many fun textures and colors of glitter washi tape, you could do this with different results depending on what washi you choose!
I used several of the different glitter washis for my title work, and it adds just the right amount of sparkle to my page! I was able to add in some other sparkly Queen & Co. flowers and gems to my project to go along with the glitter washi tapes.
I love the little pops of color from the floral embellishments and how easy it is to add some of these fun embellishments to co-ordinate with the paper and the glitter washi
I created a video of how this page came together - check it out!
Good morning, Mary-Ann Maldonado here today to share a little different layout with you all today. I want to show that you don't have to stick with soft, girl colors ALL the time. Since my house is full of boys, I decided to use the Glitter Washi Tape on my take of a Minecraft layout.
I started with applying Glitter Washi to sections of cardstock paper. Then trimmed pieces down to 1 1/4 x 1 1/4. I applied foam tape behind some of the squares for dimension.
I was able to add the Check Glitter Tape to cardstock and run it through my electronic die cutting machine to create my title. I off set it with black to create a shadow like the official title.
I added coordinating Rhinestones for an additional element. I hope you will try this technique. It was quicker than I expected and the results are worth it!
Hello Friends! This month on the Queen and Co. blog we are focusing on washi tape, so I have a new layout to share with you using some of my favorite washi's and a handy hint too!
I had this photo of my daughter waiting patiently for her Daddy at the local feed store, kicking back and relaxing in the boot try-on area.
I wanted my layout to have not only a "girly" feel to it but a "country girl" feel too. I started with wood grain and florals for the papers, then added a strip of Red Star Washi just below my photo, then another strip just above the photo. The stars go perfectly with the star on the rug that advertise cowboy boots.
Next I added the Pink Polka Dot Washi to go with her pink cowgirl hat, layering it just over the Red Star Washi.
I added the horse shoe and die cut star, then layered on the Red Star Button from the Button Bouquet II set.
And now for the handy hint...I love the look of washi tape layered over my patterned paper, but sometimes I really want the washi to stand out. To achieve this look, I add my strip of washi tape to a scrap of white cardstock, then add it to my layout.
You can see how adding washi tape to the cardstock really makes it pop!
Thank you for stopping by the Queen and Company blog today!
Hey everyone! Jen Chapin here, and today I am sharing a layout that I created using Queen and Company's awesome glitter washi. Have you guys tried this washi? Unlike some glitter tapes, this stuff is really easy to tear and punch through, which makes it great for creating embellishments like I did for this page.
I started with a sheet of 12x12 grid patterned paper. To create my custom circles, I simply adhered two pieces of glitter washi tape onto some white cardstock and punched it out with a 1" circle punch. I then adhered these circles to the top portion of my page.
Next, I created a mat for my photo using some of the dark blue glitter washi. After adhering my photo, I placed the title and wrote my journaling.
To embellish, I used some acrylic and foam stars, as well as a few enamel shapes and dots. I hope you will try this technique soon! You could even use this technique with regular washi tape. The options are endless and only limited by the type of punches you have.
Thanks for stopping by the blog and have a great day!
Good morning Q&Co. fans! Nicole Nowosad here today to share a project with you using a whole lot of Queen & Company washi tape! There are so many patterns and colors to choose from, it really is difficult to narrow it down to just a few choices, so why not go crazy and use a whole bunch instead of patterned paper?
To create this page, I simply chose a rainbow of patterned washi tape and went to work. I simply tore off different patterned of washi tape to create a rainbow of color across both sides of my page.
Once I had added my strips up either side of my page, I added some simple stitching and then some coordinating embellishments to match the colors of the washi tape. I love the little bits of sparkle that the embellishments add to the project!
Hello Friends! It's Mary Ann Jenkins here today with a heritage layout using old family photos along with some of my favorite glitter washi tape. The photos are from 1949, just after my dad enlisted in the Navy. For my embellishments I decided to go with a red, white and blue theme, along with stars, stripes, and that great anchor.
To start my layout, I cut 4 triangle shapes from white cardstock, then layered on the Blue Stripe Glitter Washi Tape to completely cover the triangles. I added the triangles to my layout, along with 4 more triangle shapes I cut from coordinating patterned paper. Next I adhered some of the Red Star Buttons from the Button Boquet II set. I like the addition of the stars!
I cut an anchor shape using my die cutting machine, then covered it with rows of Silver Skinny Glitter Tape. After I had the anchor completely covered with the glitter tape, I used my scissors to carefully cut around the anchor. I used a small circle hole punch at the top of the anchor so I could then add the strand of Red and White Twine from the Twine Assortment Pack. I placed the anchor on the left side of my layout, then added tiny drops of glue to adhere the twine around my layout
I love the look of the shiny glitter anchor, the perfect accent to go with these old photos.
Thank you for stopping by the Queen and Company blog today! Mary Ann
Hi everyone! Jen Chapin here today, and I am sharing a couple of scrapbook layouts with you using the Foam Fronts shakers. The first layout uses the Chevron Foam Front and was rainbow inspired. I started out by adding toppings in rainbow order to the spaces in the chevron, then covering with a clear front. On the background of the layout, I used watercolors to create a rainbow effect that sits behind the Foam Front.
After adhering the foam to the layout, I added my photo and title. I decided to go with a black and white photo to make the bright colors stand out. I added a few embellishments and some journaling, and the layout was complete!
When creating layouts with a rainbow theme, it's often best to stick with black and white photos and a neutral title to avoid competing with the bright colors.
For the second layout, I created a page using the Speech Bubble Foam Front about my son. This layout is 12x12 and uses a photo that's a bit smaller than 4x6.
I started out creating the title for this page using toppings and a Speech Bubble Foam Front. I added the "boys rule" title over that, then adhered to the layout. Next I placed my photo and patterned papers.
To create repetition, I added some more foam speech bubbles to the page, covered with patterned paper. I embellished and added journaling, completing the page.
I hope you will try Foam Fronts soon on your scrapbooking pages! They aren't just for cards and create such a great dimensional look. Thanks for stopping by today!
My favorite new type of bling that is! I just adore the smooth as glass look! They are elegant, pretty, and unique...which is why I decided to ues them on this layout about my daughter's first Christmas dress. They add so much pretty texture to the page.
I used some of our new red and clear Bubbles along with some Queen and Co. red snowflake Trendy Tape, Classic Photo Corners, and Baker's Twine. I cut the snowflake border and title out on my Cameo and the dress out with my Cricut. Thanks for letting me share!
