Memories + Moments | Special Scrapbook Page

Hi there! We have Jane here on the blog today with a fabulous scrapbook page for her memory journal featuring the gorgeous large flower stamps from our WHERE FLOWERS BLOOM set, SON + DAUGHTER definition stamps, and our fantastic INK SWIRLS stencil…


Hello it’s time to share my latest Visible Image design team project. Today I am sharing a “Moment” I have made for one of my physical journals “Jane’s Journal”. These are art journals which document many  of my life events and I haven’t made one for a long time. In April I celebrated my 60th birthday. I had thought it would be very low key with just my Hb and I going to RHS Wisley Gardens in Surrey. It was at the very beginning of life and places opening  up a little more after the 2nd Lockdown. Little did I know when we arrived at Wisley that not only would my daughter (who I had not seen for over 5 months) appear bearing birthday cupcakes but my son too, and they had been hatching this plan for months. It was just the best and most carefully orchestrated surprise and I was blown away (and yes I did shed a few tears of sheer joy!)

It really was the best of times and I needed to document it in my art forever.

I decided to choose this photo for my Moment which was taken when I first saw my children and we went inside the grounds, my 3 most important people.




Here’s what I got up to.


I added a light spray of distress ink to a sheet of water colour card



I then added some stenciling using the fab Ink Swirls stencil and kitsch flamingo and worn lipstick distress oxide inks.



I added it fairly randomly all over the page.



Next I stamped the son and daughter definitions stamps  into the top right and bottom left of the page.



I made a frame for my photo using alcohol inks and Yupo.



I die cut a rectangle from the Yupo and stuck my photo underneath.



I stamped the gorgeous memories sentiment from the Express Yourself set under where the photo would be.


Then I added some more stamping to the edges of my page and behind the frame using the Where Flowers Bloom set.


I purposely stamped using Versafine Clair ink so that the stencil showed through the stamping. If you don’t like this effect you would need to use Archival or another oil based ink which is more opaque. Or you could use a pure dye based ink like regular distress for the stenciling.



I also stamped and cut out a couple of the smaller flowers from Where Flowers Bloom  using a scrap of card coloured using Brushos.




Then it was time to assemble my page.



with a couple of close ups;











We have not been together with our children like this on a day out since they young and still lived at home. It really was a very special day and it lives on in Jane’s Journal.

Vibrant Card | Flower + Dragonfly Stamps

Hi! Happy Sunday to you! We hope you are enjoying some time out this weekend. Ericka is here on the blog today with an amazing vibrant card featuring our big grungy flower stamps with our gorgeous dragonfly stamp…


Hello! Summer has started here and today I have a bright summery project using the Visible Image latest release: Dragonfly Reflection, Where Flowers Bloom, and Butterfly Effect.


Vibrant Card | Flower + Dragonfly Stamps | Clear | Rubber


For my project, I started with a gel print background I made using Dylusions Shimmer Paints. These paints are awesome and the shine and bright colors are perfect for summer. It is however, a little difficult to get a good photo with all the shimmer.



After I pulled the print of my gel press, I stamped the Dragonfly and Blooms in Versfine ink and clear embossed them. I also stamped these images on some other gel press prints I had printed out and cut them out so I could add them to my project.



I also added elements from both of these sets in white ink and clear embossed the page.



I attached the blooms and dragonfly with foam tape to my project. I also stamped and embossed the dragonfly wings with WOW! Embossing Powder in Carnival.



I then stamped the sentiments from the Where the Flowers Bloom set in Versafine ink and clear embossed it as well.



To finish my card I added the small butterfly from the Butterfly Effect stamp set.



I added my project to an 8×8 black cardstock to give it a framed look.
