For Scrapbook Pages, too

Many of the newest and coolest products on the market these days seem to be tailored to cardmakers and altered artists, rather than scrapbookers.

Candy loves playing with the newest tools, but since she is a scrapbooker at heart, she is always looking for ways to apply cardmakers' techniques onto her scrapbook pages.

For this one, she worked with a Sizzix/Tim Holtz Texture Fades Embossing Folder. Because the photos were taken through the gates, windows and openings in the building, which was closed when she visited, she thought the look of an old screen would be the perfect thing to accent the pages.

She embossed pieces of white cardstock with the Gridlock Embossing Folder and then used Pumice Stone Distress Ink to accent them.

For the title, she used a mixture of chipboard letters (most are from Maya Road) and colored them with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. They are attached with Art Glitter Designer Dries Clear Adhesive.
The butterflies were stamped on plain white cardstock with a Tim Holtz/Stamper's Anonymous stamp and Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black, then cut out and colored in Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. Using a technique taught by Wendy Vecchi, she cut off the antennae when cutting out the image. Then, she reinked the stamp, placed sticky notes over all but the antennae and stamped it directly on her page. Finally, she lined up the cut outs with the stamped images and adhered them with dimensional foam.

Other supplies used: Cardstock: American Crafts, Bazzill; flowers: Bo Bunny; brads: American Crafts (gray), My Mind's Eye (turquoise); computer font: Candy Buzz BTN off the Internet
