Nerd Girl Inspiration This Week

We have had a week of fun inspiration and have lots to share with you that we have been working on!

This first project was created by Creative Team Member Milena Woodiwiss!

Milena’s layout is based on this week’s sketch. With the use of patterned paper and embellishments, Milena has turned the sketch into a simple, fun and fast page. Milena has used
the Pink Fresh Studio’s Escape the Ordinary collection. It’s been perfect for her pages
this month of her family’s trip to northern Ontario.simple sketch by Milena for scrapbooknerd.com

Next, we have another beautiful layout from Creative Team Member Nathalie DeSousa.

This layout was created with the Dream Big collection from Fancy Pants Designs and includes a little bit of stitching (plus a Silhouette cut file), and a bit of watercolor. This is one of Nathalie’s favorite pictures of her daughter on their last vacation, as they experienced some of the most beautiful skies while flying on route to Ecuador

This next layout was created by Creative Team Member Gisele Julien.

Gisele has created Project Life type pages(2) depicting an afternoon at the apple orchard using Echo Park A Perfect Autumn papers, some apples punched with a small punch, wood veneer apples, enamel dots and chipboard, plus some word chipboard.

Lastly, Creative Team Member Mari Clarke’s project is in a Traveler’s Notebook.

Mari created this layout using the Simple Stories Beautiful collection and Simple Stories traveler’s notebook.  The collection has so many coordinating pieces, including die cuts, stickers, 12×12 papers, and a 6×8 paper pad.  There are so many possibilities to use this in a fun and creative way.

We hope you are inspired to do some scrapbooking this weekend!  Pop over to the shop and check out all of the scrappy goodness that will help you craft some layouts and document your memories!

Have an awesome, scrappy weekend!

Scrapbook Nerd Creative Team Weekly Digest

The Creative Team has been busy this week creating many beautiful and awe inspiring projects.

We start off with Mari who created a lovely assortment of holiday cards to share. She makes me realize the holiday season is just around the corner!

Weekly Round Up - Mari's Cards

On this one she used the Lawn Fawn Village Border die, the Lawn Fawn Merry Messages sentiments stamp and the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders on this card. The sentiment is heat embossed using Versamark Ink.

Mari's Cards

This card was created using the Lawn Fawn Winter Village stamps and dies, Lawn Fawn rectangle stackable die, Lawn Fawn Knit Picky 6×6 pad, Distress Oxide Ink in Salty Ocean, Prismacolor Colored Pencils, Wink of Stella, Nuvo Drops in glossy white, Glossy Accents, Versamark Ink and black embossing powder.

Mari's Cards

This card was created using the My Mind’s Eye Oh What Fun collection. She used the 6×6 paper pad, the Mixed Bag ephemera pack and a puffy sticker to create the card.

The colour and detail in these cards is just gorgeous.

Gisele was busy this week making another fabulous fall themed layout.Gisele Julian Layout I love all her layering on this one. She used a Silhouette cut file pumpkin and the collection from Simple Stories simple set “Happy Haunting”. She thinks the fox, is from Pink Paislee. Leaves are from Recollection (from her stash). Alphas are AC thickers “Wonder”. She also added Nuvo drops in Ripened Pumpkin and hand stitching with green floss.

Nathalie’s use of mixed media brings out all the details in the papers from Pinkfresh Studio’s Escape the Ordinary collection. The triangles are perfect to recreate a mountain scene, just like in the picture of her daughter and cousin at about 4100m above sea level in Ecuador .

As always her use of mixed media is stunning.

And I brought you yet another new sketch and, hopefully, a creative way to get the most out of your sketches.

Scrapbook Nerd Creative Team Weekly Digest

Hello Nerds!!!

It is finally starting to feel like Fall around here!

This week our Scrapbook Nerd design team has been busy working on bringing you some inspiration.  Let’s see what they have been up to:

 

Barb has been working with 1Canoe2’s Creekside collection to document one of her travel adventures.   This page shows the versatility of the collection.  Don’t you just love the  soft fussy cut flowers in her background.   Just beautiful, Barb!!!

Gisele is a master of mixing colors and patterns seamlessly together.  This Fall card features the new Simple Stories’s Happy Harvest collection.  That fussy cut fox (from one of the collection’s cut apart card paper) is the star of this layout.  Perfect for the season!!!

 

This page by Milena is colorful, and the best way to document her 16th year old daughter.   She is our resident sketch maker, and she is using one of her sketches for this page.

 

All those phrases, and papers  from the Vicki Boutin collection from American Crafts along with some sequin from Studio Katia bring color and fun to this page.

 

Finally, Nathalie showed us how easily cut files and mixed media can be combined to create a unique background.   She put her own spin on Halloween, and used Distress Oxides and Pink Paislee’s Spellcast collection  to document  her daughter’s costume from a few years ago.  You can check how she created this page on this week’s Nerd Academy Post.

I hope you all are inspired by all this amazing projects.   Remember to check the Scrapbook Nerd store to find all the materials used in these projects, or if you need a especial order brought in.

Have a great week!!!
