A couple of Christmas cards by Judith Armstrong

by admin ~ November 22nd, 2014

Good morning FWAB fans. It’s getting close to Christmas. I’m sure before we know it, it will be here. I have been busy making my Christmas cards this year. I decided to make a couple using some of the new FWAB flowers.

IMG_0513-001

With my first card I used a FWAB Maddison flower in white and part of a FWAB Chloe Pearl Flourish in antique gold.

IMG_0510-001

Here is a close up of my embellishment cluster.

IMG_0516-001

For my other card I used a FWAB red Elise flower and the other part of the FWAB Chloe flourish in antique gold.

IMG_0512-001

Here is another close up of my embellishment cluster on this card.

IMG_0515-001

Thanks for looking. Maybe you could make some Christmas cards using FWAB products.

Hello FWAB fans!  Hope you are loving all the inspiration here on our FWAB blog!

Today, I’m sharing a layout with you:

IMG_5954b

Pie charts seem to be a bit on-trend at the moment … so I decided to make my own! I traced around a kids plate for the circle and ruled lines for the sections. I then “painted” with my mists on wet cardstock to get the watercolour effect.

IMG_5955a

FWAB products used:

FWAB Maddison Flowers 3pk – Orange
FWAB Maddison Flowers – SMALL 4pk – Teal
FWAB Elise Flowers 4pk – Gold
FWAB Elise Flowers 4pk – Green

and

FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 Pack Teal

That’s all from me for now!  Happy Scrapping!!

First up is this door hanger … I don’t “do” much off-the-page creations generally, but this was made as a special request …

IMG_5923a

The FWAB Elise Flourish Silver was just the PERFECT addition – it added the right amount of bling and flourish :)

IMG_5922a

Secondly, I have a quick card to share:

IMG_5918a

The new size in the FWAB Maddison flowers are just PERFECT for cards!!

Bloomin wonderful by Kim

by admin ~ November 3rd, 2014

Morning today I would like to share with you the amazing new flowers from FWAB they are just amazing the colours are so awesome and they just finish a layout off beautifully. In my lay out you will see the flowers with their awesome bling or pearl centers standout beautifully.

I have been a lover of the bloom girl style  of layouts for some time and when my package arrived I just knew I had to use some of them to create a bloom girl layout. There are so many colours to choose from.

As you can see the centers and colours are just amazing

Napkin Rings Tutorial – with Tracey Fowler

by admin ~ October 23rd, 2014

Hi Everyone,

Today I want to share with you how to make some simple yet elegant Napkin Rings using Flourish With A Bling Goodies.

Tutorial-1

 

Firstly you need the following supplies:

Patterned paper (I used 30 x 30 sheets), Card Stock (I used white),Paper Doilies, Glue, Double Sided Tape, FWAB Chloe Pearl Flourish , FWAB Adhesive Pearls and FWAB Flowers.

Now to start creating:

Take your paper doily and cut the strips as shown in the below picture (you could also use a border punch and white cardstock)

 

Tutorial-2

 Take your cardstock and cut a strip 6cm wide and the patterned paper at 5cm wide.

Tutorial-3

Take your 4 strips and cut them into lengths of 17cm.

Tutorial-4

Glue the doily strips onto the white card stock .

Tutorial-5

Using double sided tape, adhere your patterned paper over the top of the doilies and cardstock

Tutorial-6

Take your FWAB Chloe Pearl Flourish, remove it from the backing sheet and place a small amount of glue on some the back of the pearls. Although the flourishes  are self adhesive, as the flourish is going to bent and not sitting flat this just adds extra strength to the flourish.

Tutorial-7

Place the flourish in the centre of the pattered paper.

Tutorial-8

Place a line of glue along the bottom strip and bring the other end up and hold together to form a ring.

Tutorial-9

Tutorial-10

Take your FWAB Flowers and using some glue adhere your flower over the join and set aside to dry.

Tutorial-12

Another alternative is to use the FWAB Adhesive Pearls and decorate the paper of your choice as I have done below.

Tutorial-13

Once the napkin rings are dried they are ready to use.

Tutorial-14

Tutorial-15

 Thank you for letting me share my tutorial with you.

I have now got to decide which one I want to use for Christmas Day and get making some more!

Happy Scrapping

Tracey

Dress Up Fun with Amy Prior

by admin ~ October 21st, 2014

Hi everyone! Amy Prior back with you all again today with a fun layout to share using lots of Flourish with a Bling products. Here I have used the FWAB new Elise & Maddison flowers in Black, Hot Pink & Orange, FWAB Nicky’s Beach Huts (flag banner), Jessie Flourish in Black, Chloe Flourish in Black, and Bella Rhinestone Flourishes in Black (frame).

tn_Dress Up Fun by Amy Prior

The flag banner from Nicky’s Beach Huts Set has been given a makeover to suit the layout better. I have simply coloured in the flags with an Orange Gelato crayon and then I have added some Shimmerz Inklingz in Beets Me over the top for some pink added shimmer.

tn_Dress Up Fun by Amy Prior2

My background white cardstock was given a few scrapes of different shades of Shimmerz Dazzlerz Texture Paint. When this was dry, I have  added some more Shimmerz Dazzlers but this time in black and through a stencil.

tn_Dress Up Fun by Amy Prior3

Lots of extra gorgeous flowers to compliment the fabulous Flourish with a Bling Elise & Maddison flowers including some from Kaisercraft, Petaloo and Scrappers Garden.

tn_Dress Up Fun by Amy Prior4

I just love how the Bella Rhinestone Flourish frame looks like a hollywood backstage makeup mirror. It suits the photo perfectly seen as Mia and her friend are both dressed up playing and with some makeup on!

Thanks so much for stopping by and until next time, happy scrapping!

Tahr very much by Judith

by admin ~ October 14th, 2014

Good morning, Judith here to share with you another layout using some of the new FWAB flowers. We recently visited Halls Gap Zoo in the Grampians in Victoria. You were able to feed some of the animals including the Himalayan Tahr, which is what this page is about.

IMG_8097

And some close ups

IMG_8100

I was so happy when I saw that FWAB had included some orange flowers into the range, as this is one of my favourite colours. Here I have teamed a FWAB Maddison in orange with a FWAB small Maddison in latte.

IMG_8099

I also added half a FWAB Trents Fence and part of a FWAB Grace Pearl Flourish in Copper.

IMG_8098

For my other cluster I have reversed the colours and used a large FWAB Maddison flower in latte and a small FWAB Maddison flower in orange, again with the half Trents fence and piece of Grace Pearl flourish in copper. Finally, I dotted a few loose adhesive pearls in copper around the page.

Thanks for looking and don’t forget there is a sale on flowers at the moment which you can find here

Hello…New flowers with Amy Prior

by admin ~ October 12th, 2014

Hi everyone!! Amy Prior back with you all again today to share another bright and fun layout with you all featuring tonnes of gorgeous Flourish with a Bling products used.

tn_Hello by Amy Prior

For this layout, I have used tonnes of the gorgeous new FWAB Ellise & Maddison flowers. Have you seen them yet? The new colours are divine and the new sizes are so darn cute and only $2 a pack you will need to get them all before they sell out. Click here to go shopping for these new flowers now!

tn_Hello by Amy Prior2

FWAB Jasmine Puffy Flourish in Orange & Jasmine Laser Flourish in pink were also used on this layout to add some fun and funky flair.

tn_Hello by Amy Prior3

I am so excited about these gorgeous new flower colours! Easily editable with different centres too which is so fun especially when clustering same flowers together like I  have here. The only rule i have when clustering flowers, is to never have the same style/shape/colour flowers next to each other. So I can easily change up the flowers with similar shapes to create that contrast still just by changing the centres!

tn_Hello by Amy Prior4

My black background cardstock was painted using a variety of Shimmerz paints in colours to match my papers. I have then also added some stencilling over the top using black Shimmerz Dazzlerz to bring back the black a little more to the background.

tn_Hello by Amy Prior5

Thanks so much for stopping by and until next time, happy scrapping!

The circus came to town last school holidays … I kept the circus flyer and the tickets we purchased to use on a layout … it’s fun to use memorabilia :) :).  I was disappointed I couldn’t get a photo of the kids in front of the big top, but it was storming and we all had to make a mad dash!  So, even tho I’m a little short of pics, I still wanted to scrap about the event :)

 

I have used a FWAB Maddison Flower – Red, FWAB Elise Flowers in Pale Blue and White,

IMG_5914a

and a FWAB Jasmine Laser Flourish Red

Guard your heart canvas with Amy Prior

by admin ~ October 8th, 2014

Hi everyone! Amy Prior back with you all today with a quick share. I recently created this fabulous canvas full of amazing colour along with one of my favourite bible verses and of course, Flourish with a Bling Flourishes were the perfect final addition for the piece.

tn_Above all else by Amy Prior

To create this canvas, I have used various layers of Shimmerz paint added directly to the canvas and then also through stencils. I really wanted to grunge the colour up a bit so a bit of black archival ink rubbed here and there really helped that effect.

tn_Above all else by Amy Prior2

Underneath my flower clusters are some fabulous FWAB Black Ellise Rhinestone Flourishes as well as some FWAB Black Bella rhinestone flourishes.

tn_Above all else by Amy Prior3

When the chipboard, flowers and letter stickers were added, I wanted to add a hint of gold so I have rubbed various amounts of  Inka Gold in gold colour around the texture and edges and then I have added some FWAB Antique Gold Self Adhesive Individual Pearls scattered randomly around my clusters of flowers.

tn_Above all else by Amy Prior4

Well that is it from me today, I hope I have inspired you to get bright and creative with your FWAB product stash and until next time, happy scrapping!

Anyway, onto my layout:

IMG_8906

I have layered some FWAB Jack Vines in green with some rhinestone flourishes which form part of FWAB Kate’s Corner Flourish in Silver

IMG_8910

In the bottom cluster I have used two new flowers – a FWAB Elise flower in green and a small FWAB Maddison flower in lilac. I also used some more bits of Jack Vine and Kate’s Corner Flourish. They are all seated on a piece of grass out of FWAB’s Lee’s Tree. You can also see I sprinkled a few purple adhesive pearls and silver rhinestones which also come out of the Kate’s Corner Flourish pack. I also used a rhinestone for the chipboard bunny’s eye!

IMG_8909

In the middle cluster I used a FWAB Maddison flower in lilac together with a mix of other small flowers.

IMG_8908

In the top cluster I have again used a FWAB Maddison flower in lilac but teamed it up with two FWAB Elise flowers in lilac. Again I added a few flowers from my own collection.

IMG_8907

To finish off I added a few pieces of chipboard which I gessoed and coloured with a mix of Faber Castel gelatoes and stencilled some texture paste.

Thanks for looking and I hope I’ve inspired you to use some of the new flowers that FWAB have launched.

Forever Together – by Tracey Fowler

by admin ~ September 23rd, 2014

Hi Everyone,

What a strange week of weather here in the west! The weekend started off more like summer than spring with Perth hitting it’s hottest day on record for September (34.2C) and the following day we received 35mls of rain and it is back to feeling like winter again.

So with the current weather in mind, I pulled out one of my all time favourite photos of my two little boys which was taken many years ago playing at the beach,  and since it was raining outside, what better excuse than to scrap away until my heart is content….or should I say until my “ratbags” come looking for me and need something to eat or drink!

“Forever Together”

Forever-together

I have used FWAB Luke Flourish in Denim Blue under my photo to form the base of my layering. I have also added FWAB Maddison Flowers-Baby Blue and FWAB Elise Flowers in White.  To add my final touches to the layout and tie all the elements together I have used FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 Pack in Blue.

Here are a few close ups of my layout.

Forever-Together-Clup4

Forever-Together-Clup3

Forever-Together-Clup1

Don’t forget this is your last chance for this year to grab  yourself a bargain at the FWAB Store.

Everything in store is only $2.o0!

That is all from me today. I will be back in a few days to share with you another project that I have been working on.

Birthday card by Judith

Hi, Judith here with a birthday card featuring lots of FWAB goodies. I decided to create a swing gate card for my mother for her birthday.

IMG_5302

Here are some close ups:

IMG_5300

I used a FWAB Maddison flower in baby blue, a FWAB Chloe pearl flourish in pink cut into pieces,  and part of a FWAB Jack vine in green on the central swing gate.

and I used a few FWAB individual adhesive pearls in pink to embelllish the corners.

Embossing flourishes – by Chloe Nielsen

by admin ~ September 15th, 2014

I really love my FWAB flourishes.  I would add them to every single page if I could!  I’m always on the lookout for different things I can do with them and recently, I decided to try embossing them.

I have lots of different embossing folders for my Big Shot … like these …p7258644

And while I didn’t get progress photos for this, it’s all pretty easy.

Step one:  Choose a “flat” FWAB flourish (like Jasmine, Luke, Jessie – not the pearl ones – you could even try some of the FWAB Outdoor range!)

Step Two:  Remove from packaging but NOT from the backing sheet.

Step Three:  Place in embossing folder and run through your machine.

Step Four:  Remove flourish from backing sheet and place on your project!

Easy as that!

IMG_5800a

I’ve used a FWAB Luke Flourish in Teal and a FWAB Jasmine Laser Flourish Gold on the above page, embossing them in a swirl pattern (Luke Flourish) and a script pattern (Jasmine flourish).

IMG_5804aLove the texture it gives!  And it made the flourishes curl up a bit – which I really liked – so I emphasised the effect and helped it stay there with tiny bits of foam tape.

IMG_5805a

You’ll spy a FWAB Maddison Flowers – Chocolate there too!!

So, there you go, a nice easy tutorial to add some extra WOW factor to your FWAB flourishes!  Hope you can give it a go!

What I love about Autumn by Judith

by admin ~ September 12th, 2014

Good morning, Judith here with a bright Autumn layout to share with you. Autumn is my favourite season. I just love the changing colours of the trees. It is also the time we take our annual family photo in Daylesford Botanic Gardens. So this is I layout about what I love about Autumn. I used some old Basic Grey Green at Heart patterned paper and stickers and created a bit of a background with some texture paste, paint and a stencil.

IMG_8057

Here are a few close ups:

IMG_8058

I have used some left over pieces of FWAB Jack Vine in Green

IMG_8059

And then layered some FWAB Chloe Pearl Flourish in Olive Green over the top.

IMG_8060

For my tree I used a FWAB Lee’s Tree and die cut some leaves out of patterned paper and arranged them around the tree.

Thanks for looking

Gift bag and card – Chloe Nielsen

by admin ~ September 9th, 2014

Hello FWAB fans!  It’s Chloe here with some of my latest FWAB creations.

 

September is a big birthday month for us within our circle of family and friends.  One friend celebrated with a “high tea” party so I decided to decorate a kraft paper gift bag and make a card to match:

 

{I remembered to take a photo just as I was walking out the door on my way to the party!!}

IMG_5527a

I went with the colour combo of pink and yellow with white and kraft - I think it’s a fun, pretty and fresh combo!

IMG_5530a

I kept the decorating really simple, using a FWAB Grace Pearl Flourish Pink as a feature on the bag.

IMG_5532a

On my card, I used part of a FWAB Chloe Pearl Flourish Pink and the tail end of the FWAB Grace Pearl Flourish Pink I used on the bag.  Together they look like a new flourish!!

IMG_5533a

I’ve also featured a FWAB Elise Flower – Pink on the card. Love my FWAB flowers!

 

That’s all from me for now.  Hope you get a chance to play along with our September CHALLENGE!
