Create Banner with Amy Prior

by admin ~ January 17th, 2015

Hi everyone! Amy Prior back with you all again today sharing a project that was perfectly accented with lots of gorgeous Flourish with a Bling Self Adhesive White Pearls.

tn_Create Banner by Amy Prior

This gorgeous banner started off as simple pieces of Raw Canvas that I have wet thoroughly with water before adding tonnes of various colour Shimmerz paints to the backgrounds. I really wanted a gorgeous rainbow of colours on this banner.

tn_Create Banner by Amy Prior2

When the background was completely dry, I have sprayed some White Shimmerz Spritz spray over the top to dull down the colours a tad before adding the FWAB White Adhesive Pearls randomly here and there.

tn_Create Banner by Amy Prior3

I had some old Chipboard letters in my stash that I have simply painted with some Shimmerz white Dazzlerz paints. I wanted to paint these white to create a nice contrast against the crazy rainbow background of the banners.

I finally added some flowers and a bit of Texturez paint on the petals to bring the whole thing together.

Thanks so much for stopping by and don’t forget that we have 50% off the Flourish with a Bling store this month which is craaaazzzyyyy so quick click here and shop up a storm.

Until next time, happy scrapping!

Christmas Continues with Amy Prior

by admin ~ December 27th, 2014

Hi everyone! Amy Prior back with you all again today after a couple of months break from scrapbooking. Christmas is all but finished now with most people already taking down decorations but I wanted to come by and quickly share a last minute decoration that I made for our Christmas Table here at the Prior household.

tn_Christmas Tree by Amy Prior

The tree is a 3d Kaisercraft BTP MDF Product that was supposed to be used as a countdown calendar but I got it down way too late to consider using it for that purpose, maybe next year LOL.

tn_Christmas Tree by Amy Prior2

The MDF was covered in lots of gorgeous little paper doilies decoupaged all over and then I have added lots of sprays from Shimmerz Paints as well as  other Shimmerz paint products used through stencils etc. I just love this sort of layering of different paint mediums.

tn_Christmas Tree by Amy Prior3

Lots of Flourish with a Bling gold pearls were the perfect finishing touch for this tree and I have added lots of Self Adhesive Pearls in Antique Gold as well as some Chloe Flourishes in Antique Gold.

tn_Christmas Tree by Amy Prior4

Our Christmas decorations are all very rainbow candy colours here so the tree fits perfectly with our Christmas Home Decor. Thanks so much for stopping by and don’t forget to checkout the giant sale over in the Flourish with a Bling store!!!

Until next time, happy scrapping!

Amy Prior xx

Christmas cards – by Chloe Nielsen

IMG_6472aSee … super duper easy, but they look great!

I’ve used FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 pack in Latte and Rose Pink to make the shape of baubles …

IMG_6474a

And a FWAB Maddison Flowers – SMALL in pink and latte for decoration …

IMG_6475a

Added some twine and mini letters and they are done!

You make my heart sing – Chloe Nielsen

by admin ~ December 18th, 2014

Hello everyone!  It’s Chloe here sharing my first project for the month.  I can’t believe it’s December already!  This year has flown by so fast!

 

Here’s my page:

 

IMG_6479aI thought I would try a monochromatic style page.   Surprisingly, the whole thing came together quite quickly!  I guess I didn’t have to spend time matching embellishments and such like … I just knew I needed silver or grey or white :D

IMG_6480a

I’ve used the gorgeous FWAB Kate’s Corner Flourish Silver flourish - cut up to fit on opposite ends of my cluster …

You’ll also spy a grey flower from the FWAB Elise Flourish Black – Dark Green & Silver Grey flowers set too!

IMG_6481a

That’s all from me today, but I’ll be back soon to share some FWABulous Christmas cards!

Once again it’s always so hard to narrow down someones amazing contribution to FWAB and choose just 4 or 5 layouts to showcase, but here goes -

In this bright and cheery beach layout, Judith has combined the FWAB Nicky’s beach huts with FWAB Maddison and Elise flowers in co ordinating colours….and does’nt it look fabulous! Together with the FWAB clouds and sun from the FWAB Up in the sky pack, this layout was a feast for the eyes with lots of yummy FWAB!

Who can resist the gorgeous FWAB Taylahs toadstools for layouts of toadstools, mushrooms or fairies. Don’t they look just great on Judith’s Fairytale Fungi layout below -

***Design Team Farewell to Linda Thompson, Judith Armstrong and Tracey Fowler***

by admin ~ December 4th, 2014

It’s that time of year again in the DT calendar when we must farewell our current design team and announce a new DT call…however we have asked our current Aussie DT girls once again if they would like to stay on with us here at FWAB for another 2 months because we LOVE them so much and yeahhhhhh most of them said YES! Woohoo

Sadly we must farewell Linda Thompson, Judith Armstrong and Tracey Fowler, even though we would dearly love to keep everyone on!

So as a fond farewell and reminder to you all of these fabulously talented ladies, over the coming week I thought I would post some of our favourite creations from each of them – mind you it’s always a very hard job to narrow them down!

First up I would like to showcase some of Linda’s work -

Linda

Lindas

 Here Linda has created a gift box and used the FWAB lilac Jasmine puffy flourish and the FWAB green Jack vine. Cut up and arranged in a 3D cluster of flowers and ribbon, doesn’t it look so very pretty!

In this next beach layout Linda has used a red beach house from the FWAB Nicky’s beach huts set as well as one of the fences that Linda has cut up from the FWAB Trent’s fence set as well as a toadstool from the FWAB Taylah’s toadstools set. Don’t you just love the colour scheme of red and blues together for a beach page….and look at that gorgeous photo! :-)

Lindas 3

 

Next up Linda has created a stunning layout using shades of B&W with a touch of yellow/orange which makes our FWAB orange Jasmine puffy flourish  stand out beautifully. Once again Linda has cut up the Jasmine flourish to create 3 separate pieces to fit in with her design.

In this final pretty  and oh so girly  layout, Linda has used a part of the fence from the FWAB Trent’s fence, a FWAB green Jack vine, a FWAB pale pink Jasmine laser flourish and our new FWAB Maddison and Elise flowers.

by admin ~ November 18th, 2014

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

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!!

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.

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

Happy Scrapping
