These are some of the projects that were displayed at Scrapadoodle today. I took 2 classes from Jill who owns Jillibean Soup paper (and accessories). She does most of her designs on kraft colored paper. The ideas are simple, yet very easy to create and look awesome! Here is her website if you would like more information. She has a blog, too!
The morning class consisted of these six cards using her papers. The prepackaged cards were in our kit. All of the paper was cut or punches...we just stamped or stickered or added button and popdots. Very quick easy cards to do...but very cute, too!
The class in the afternoon was this mini album. It was made out of paper lunch sacks (bought at Target....they are a little larger than the ones you buy in the grocery store.) Again, we used her line of papers, stickers, buttons, etc., The title is made with corrugated cardboard. You can ink, paint, sand, whatever, to make these letters your own. In the shadow box in first picture, she used the "waste" from the sheet of letters as her background paper! Way to use all of the product. Again, she had everything cut or punched and ready to go for each page.
We stamped the journaling box with brown ink on the kraft paper. We used border punches to cut some of the scallops.
I took the time to ink all of the papers and journaling "sprouts" (one of her products). The buttons and tabs are stickers, too.
The bags were cut to measure 12" long. We folded them in half so the bottom flap part was inside the fold. The top and bottom of the bags are in the center where the binding is.
The green cardstock is placed there for the picture. We threaded linen string through the cardstock buttons before we stuck them down on the kraft circles. (I just love the bird house paper! We used that on one of the cards....cut them out and popdotted them!)
All of the names of her papers are "soup" related...cabbage soup...she has a new one that will be introduced at CHA this summer called monster soup...that should be fun!
This is the back of the album. We used the cropadile to punch through all the layers of paper and paper bags. Sure is easy when you have the right tools. I finished my album, just as you see it, before I walked out of the store. I could have been done much faster if I hadn't inked every single piece of paper...but I am glad I took the time to do the inking. It gives it so much more!
