Hello everyone,

today i have a layout tutorial to share using the fabulous "Hydrangea lawns" paper pad.The paper is so pretty with some beautiful shades of blues n purples and stunning florals.

So lets see the procedure:

I coated the paper with a layer of clear gesso first.

Next step is to fussy cut some flowers and leaves from the paper pad

Glue down the bigger flowers to the base for the first layer

Now i sprayed some colors in shades of blue and purple around the flowers and added some darker colors of same shades in some place using gelatos. 

Did some random stamping using archival inks to add texture.

So here is the final layout,i added another layer of fussy cut flowers and leaves.

Supplies used:

Stacked Cake box (Mini Tutorial) using DMC's Hydrangea Lawns Paperpad & Oriental Cardstock

Hello, craft enthusiasts!

How have been? I hope you are having a fabulous creative weekend and did enjoy the brilliant posts of my fellow DT colleagues. This month we are showcasing projects using the gorgeous Hydrangea Lawns Paperpad and Asseccories from DMC.

For my second post of the month, I have created my very favourite Stacked Cake boxes. I have used 3 coordinated papers from the Hydrangea lawns paperpad and one Oriental white cardstock.

Here is a brief of my project:

1. Cut out circles from patterned paper and white cardstock of measurements as in the photo.

2. Once you score the patterned paper strip at 0.75" as mentioned in the above picture, cut the smaller region using a scissor as shown below. These will be used to construct the rim of the round box.

3. Assemble all the layers and adorn it as per your choice. Tadaaaa !!!! your very own double tier cake box is ready.

Happy crafting,

Album cover using hydrangea laws papers

Hi guys,
Hope you're doing great.
I have a new project to share with you today. I have used the newly released hydrangea laws paper pack to make this beautiful album cover. These papers are extremely beautiful and can be used in making cards, albums, altered projects and a lot of other things.
The spine of the album has a beautiful dangler which I have created using some fashion and bubblegum accessories. These are also the newly released products from DMC and they give an additional look to your projects.
Step by step tutorial:
Take a chipboard of 1200gsm and cut two pieces measuring 6 inches by 5 inches and one piece measuring 6 inches by 2 inches.
Take two pieces of 250gsm Cardstock and cut them measuring 6 inches by 2 inches and join the chipboards using tacky glue.
Cut pattern papers of your choice and stick them on the cover.
Make a hole on the spine.
Take a brad to hang your dangler and fix it in the hole.
Decorate your front cover frame with flowers.
Backside of the album has got a lot of clear droplets that adds additional flavour to the album.

Hope you like it!

I love frames and there amazing to document pictures and decorate your home. If you want display your special pictures in unique and stylish way so this is one of the perfect.
Let’s start. Firstly I drew the desired shape on sun board/cardboard.

I cut three pieces of same shape from sun board. I picked six different designs from paper pack. Pack is coming with twelve gorgeous paper designs. And cut them also in the same shape.

Then for giving more dramatic looks, randomly I did distressing, torn the edges, used texture paste, light paste with stencils and little stamping as well.

I pasted all six paper cutouts to both the sides of sun board.

I pasted few things on one side of each frame from my stash.

Here comes the most exciting part, pasting DMC Accessories. I used many DMC Fashion Accessories, to complete my project.

With punch, I punched holes and joined my frames with jump rings.

Another side, Ideal for putting up pictures.

Here comes the finished project.

For the second project, I have made a tag using super stunning paper pack again.
I cut two sizes of regular tags from DMC Oriental papers.

Here comes the exciting part again. As this is super gorgeous paper pack, same as the cover is. Yes I made this tag using the front cover of Hydrangea lawns.

For the bigger tag, I cut four five designs from cover page. Distressed the cutouts  and pasted. For the smaller tag, I used leftover from my last projects.

Apply light paste, texture paste on both tags using stencil same stencil.

From hydrangea design paper, I Fussy cut some of them and you have your cute flowers ready. I fussy cut from my cover pattern paper.

I placed all together. They are lots of fun because you can grow crazy with the layers and dimension.

Color two charms with alcohol ink, to match my project.

Adhere sentiment onto the bottom of tags and thread the tops with twine and ribbon.

For the third project, I recycled a box.
Chose two script paper from HYDRANGEA LAWNS.

Than the toughest job, tearing papers ……………. Lol!  Actually it’s difficult. With the heavy heart I randomly torn the papers and dipped in water.

After few seconds, remove papers from bowl and with the help of tissue drain the excess water.

I pasted the papers with soft gloss gel on my box. If you want you may give a base coat with Gesso also.

Here I took the another beautiful, awesome product from DMC. Clear drops. To make my work easy, I pasted my drops on two side tape as now my drops didn’t run here and there while doing Gesso.

After the gesso is dried, I colored my drops with spray and alcohol ink.

I took wooden leaves and colored them with acrylic color.

Turn of beautiful flowers from DMC Fashion Accessories.

I pasted blue drops randomly.

Splattered few colors, and gives little distressed look on another edge of box with waxes and colors.
