Quilters Vibe August 2020

Hello Lovelies!

It's time for the August edition of Quilters Vibe!

The inspiration quilt this month was a Dresden plate.   I wasn't going to make one out of paper.  Not happening.  Instead I took inspo from the rainbow and the woodgrain backdrop.


I used a cutfile from a fairly new company (Pear Tree Cut Files) and used that as my rainbow element.

I got stuck a little way into the process, so after some searching online, I found this layout by Shimelle (with process video) which was looking similar to what I hat up to that point, I followed her lead, but mine went out of control as it typically does!

Oh well!  It does capture the vibe of my three crazy kiddos, though!  Scroll down for the process video and links to the other QV girls channels.

The Paper Girls DT Challenge #206 Emboss Like a Boss

Hello Lovelies!

Challenge #206 over on The Paper Girls Challenge Blog is the "Emboss Like a Boss"!  I Heat embossed Thickers and wood veneers and dry embossed some paper for this layout which also doubles up at my July Quilters Vibe layout.  

There is a process video, (scroll down for that!) otherwise here are some still photos of my project.

The inspiration quilt that Sara chose for us for July was this gorgeous bookcase quilt.  I took a rather literal spin and it's another of of those layouts that didn't quite live up to my expectations, but it's a story told and that's always a win for me.  

I also took inspiration from THIS LAYOUT on Shimelle's Instagram.  She used the same cut file two very different ways!

Stick It Down DT August Layout

Hello Lovelies!

It's Stick It Down Single Page Challenge time again! 

This is the sketch we're working with in August:

 The diamonds remind me of several patterned papers with large diamonds.  I picked one from Shimelle's Glitter Girl line and cut out the diamonds.  They were a little bit smaller than the ones in the sketch so I had to jiggle them around to get them to sit nicely and stitched them down.

Stitching on paper means my regular Kokuyo dot roller is unlikely to hold down the elements, so enter my beloved Glue Dots (Thank you, Columbus Trading! 💖💖💖)

There is a process video (scroll down) and some stills where you can read the journaling.





That Was Seriously Tachy

The Paper Girls Challenge DT Project #205 Summer Dreams

Hello Lovelies

It's time for Challenge #205 over at The Paper Girls.  The theme is "Summer Dreams" so I thought my July "For the Love of Homemade Kits" kit would be perfect since it definitely had a summery vibe to it. 

If you would like to see what my kit looked like, click here to watch the YouTube video.

The next thing that inspired the page design was the return of Shimelle's "Starting Points" in this Facebook Live video.  It was lots of fun and made the page happen faster than it might otherwise have done.

Scroll down for the process video!

Here are the still pics

The lighting is dreadful due to the afternoon sun.  I tried to adjust in the editor, but it's still not great so I'm sorry and I'll see what I can do about it in the future.

Love and happy scrapping
