Do you wanna build a snowman? with Amy Prior

by admin ~ July 31st, 2014

Hiya FWAB fans, Amy Prior back today with a super quick post sharing some recent invitations that I made with a Frozen theme. My dear friend’s daughter was turning 5 and of course, like many girls, she just adores the Frozen movie and wanted a themed party.

tn_Do you wanna build a snowman by amy prior

I have created this invitations using my Silhouette Cameo machine along with some Bazzil Bling Cardstock and Flourish with a Bling Individual Pearls in White plus Black & Flourish with a Bling Rhinestones in Silver. I also added some snowflake sequins that I had in my stash and they really finished the card off nicely.

Timeless Moments by Tracey Fowler

by admin ~ July 30th, 2014

Good Morning Everyone,

 Tracey here with you today, and I have a layout that I would like to share with you.

I have used the BEAUTIFUL FWAB Chloe Pearl Flourish Pearl and

FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 Pack Pearl amongst the flower cluster.

“Timeless Moments”



As I often do, I have cut the FWAB Chloe Pearl Flourish Pearl into pieces and placed amongst my cluster. Although I adore the Flourish as it comes packaged, I also like to make this stunning embellishment fit and suit my project.

 As confetti is a big trend at the moment I like to use the individual FWAB Pearls to get a similar effect.



That is all from me today. If you have been creating with FWAB goodies,

why not upload your projects onto the FWAB Gallery.

We would love to see what you have been creating.

Take Care










Bright & Fun with some added dagginess by Amy Prior

by admin ~ July 29th, 2014

Hi everyone! Amy Prior back with you all today to share a super fun-filled layout using lots of Flourish with a Bling and some added dagginess. Yes I am being a total dag in the photo featured in this layout and my daughter Mia’s reaction is priceless!
tn_Oh Mum by Amy Prior

I have used Flourish with a Bling Grace Pearl Flourish in Mango, Teal & Rose Pink plus I have also added some Flourish with a Bling Jack Vines in green for this layout.

tn_Oh Mum by Amy Prior2

My background white cardstock was given some texture paste dimension using a stencil and I have then painted the texture with random Gelatos and added some Inka Gold over the top in purple.

tn_Oh Mum by Amy Prior3

I have then ripped roughly along 2 opposite corners of my patterned paper to have the pattern and texture peeking through. I then decided to add another layer of paper ripped and some lace which really helped finish this girlie layout off.

tn_Oh Mum by Amy Prior4

Lots of gorgeous glimmer, texture and colour on this layout I just am loving it. Getting arty and messy is so much fun and the process is so very therapeutic. If you haven’t tried mixed media yet I definately recommend adding some mess to your layouts and getting creative. Buy a cheap art journal so you can play around with paint on a cheap rippable page before trying it first on a scrapbook page if you are worried.

tn_Oh Mum by Amy Prior5

Well that is it from me today, thanks so much for stopping by and don’t forget that you can stop by the Flourish with a Bling store right here to purchase any or all of the products that I have used today. Don’t forget to tell your local scrapbooking store that you would also like to see more of the Flourish with a Bling range in their stores!

Until next time, happy scrapping!

Clipboard Art – Tracey Fowler

by admin ~ July 28th, 2014

Hello Everyone,

The boys are back to school, I am over the flu and have been itching to get into my scrap room and create something a little different to what I normally do.I have a pile of old wooden clipboards that I have inherited, and thought that it would be fun to get the spray paint out (along with all my other bits & pieces) and see what I could create with one of them.

I had fun creating the background, spray painting it in white, then sanding the edges and the metal clip to give it a distressed look along with stamping and spraying mists. I found it challenging working with a rectangle space as I am so use to creating with the traditional 30″ x 30″ layouts.


“Clipboard Art -Brothers”


I  have used two pieces of FWAB goodies.  FWAB Jack Vine Black and FWAB Jasmine Puffy Flourish Black.

I cut the FWAB Jasmine Puffy Flourish Black into 2 pieces and placed them under the photo.

The FWAB Jasmine Puffy Flourish Black  and FWAB Jack Vine Black work well together and can create a fabulous base for your flower  clusters.



I love the kites in the background paper. I was really excited  when I found this chipboard kite amongst my stash. I added some music paper just like the one in the background and coloured the bows using a distress pen and mounted it using foam tape and placed it slightly offset one of the kites in the background paper.





These little bulldog clips are a perfect embellishment to tie in with my Clipboard theme.


I hope that my project will give you some inspiration to try something a little different to what you normally create.

It can feel quite strange and even uncomfortable to go out of your comfort zone but it can also be very rewarding and lots of fun!

Take care and happy scrapping



Kim’s Tutorial for July

by admin ~ July 21st, 2014

Hi All today its Kim on the blog sharing with you a way to use bling and lazer cuts and soften them with some ribbon they do work well together but sometimes they are a bit harsh to look at even stark but by simply threading in some soft ribbon you can soften the whole effect.

Below is my LO and some close up images of the ribbon threaded through the bling and how soft it looks.

I hope that you have enjoyed this share Kim.

4 & a half – Chloe

by admin ~ July 17th, 2014

Kids grow up so quickly don’t they!  I can’t believe my baby is 4 & a half already!

I went for a boyish/grungy look for this page … lots of layers and bits and pieces …


I used a FWAB Elise Flourish Antique Brown … cut in half to fit on either side of my photo …

IMG_5075aand a FWAB Maddison Flowers – Chocolate in my cluster, as well as a FWAB Jessie Flourish Cherry Red in the background:


That’s if from me today … don’t forget the July FWAB challenge!

Natural beauty by Judith Armstrong

by admin ~ July 15th, 2014

Good morning Judith here with another FWAB project to share.  My second project this month is a layout featuring pearls and flowers. I am a keen gardener and have lots of photos of flowers from my garden so decided to create a layout about one of them. To create my background I have used a piece of Blue Fern Studio Ombre Dreams pattern paper which has a delicate pattern printed on it. To this I added some texture paste using a Crafters Workshop stencil and also stamped with a text stamp. I added a photo matted on another piece of Ombre Dreams paper and placed some Blue Fern Studio chipboard.


Then it was time to create my clusters. Here are some close ups.


I have used a FWAB Chloe Pearl Flourish in Pearl which I cut up. Using one part on the bottom cluster and one part on the top cluster.IMG_5120

Both clusters include a mix of flowers but each one has a FWAB flower. For the top cluster I used a FWAB Elise flower in burnt orange.IMG_5119

And in the bottom cluster I have used a FWAB Maddison flower in pink.


I also used some FWAB individual adhesive pearls in pearl. You can see one used as a centre of the small pink flower in the photo above. I also scattered a few around the page.

Thanks for looking.

Everyone is Special canvas by Judith Armstrong

by admin ~ July 8th, 2014

Good morning FWAB fans. This month I thought I’d try something different and do a mixed media canvas and play around with a number of different mediums as well as some FWAB goodness.


To create the background I gessoed a canvas and then  painted stripes of Twinkling H20 paints and normal watercolours paints and blended them with water. I then used 2 different stencils and 3 different mediums: – Viva Decor stone art texture paste,


Shimmerz Dazzelerz texture paste, which I then covered in gesso to tone it down,


 and gel medium


 I then set about creating a sea like scene. I painted some chipboard grasses and adhered them to the canvas. Then I overlaid them with FWAB Chloe Flourishes in blue and purple


 I added some chipboard seahorses coated in Viva Decor Inka Gold Cobalt and added some FWAB individual adhesive pearls in purple along its tail.


 Next I added my own version of the rainbow fish created with sequins.


Finally, I added a quote and my canvas was finished.

Thanks for looking


Giggles with Linda T

by admin ~ July 7th, 2014

Hello FWAB followers.

Today I wanted to share with you a layout that has been made into a scenery rather than just a decorated page, which is my normal style hehe.


IMG_0144 copy

This is such an old photo of my now 14 & 9 year olds doing a touch of gardening.

IMG_0116 copy

Using a small piece of the grass from the  FWAB Lee’s Tree then another piece of grass from  FWAB Trent’s Fence I created a grassy spot under the tree adding a touch of gold metallic paint to blend them, I also added the smallest toadstool from FWAB Taylah’s Toadstools.

IMG_0118 copy

I took the dark brown fence from FWAB Trent’s Fence and cut it in 2 pieces adding one piece to each side of the photo.

IMG_0120 copy

IMG_0134 copy

Cutting up a pack of  FWAB Jack Vine Green  I was able to threat pieces of it through the tree.

IMG_0138 copy

IMG_0142 copy

Here you can see the overall effect, I even cut the photo slightly to allow the chipboard tree to become one with the photo, so it looked like it was coming out of the garden.

That’s all from me today hope you enjoyed my little garden scene layout

Doing What you Love-Tracey Fowler

by admin ~ June 26th, 2014

Hi Everyone,

I am back again with another layout to share with you. I have to admit that this layout is different to my usual style! I think it is my lack of flowers??

This layout using lots of layers and texture in the  background.

I have used FWAB Jasmine Puffy Flourish and FWAB Adhesive Pearls in Mango.

FWAB Adhesive Pearls 100 Pack Mango

  FWAB Jasmine Laser Flourish Pearl



As I wanted to keep the  FWAB Adhesive Pearls in Mango exactly spaced as they are in the packet I just cut the strip and used some liquid glue that dries clear and adhered the strip on my layout. This was a quick and easy way to line the pearls up.

“Doing What You Love”


Thanks for stopping by, you still have time to make the most of the fabulous sale we have going on.


that’s right ALL of our beautiful products are only $2 each

A touch of Colour and a Flourish

by admin ~ June 25th, 2014

Hi its Kim again today and am I wanting to share with you all a layout that I just love and I love the way the Jessie Flourish works so well with the grunge look of my layout.

learn to pause_edited-1


This is the whole layout I find I tend to cut and re layer the flourish to suit my layouts but with the Jessie Flourish it has 2 extra branches that you can add where ever you want and this is what I have done here.

Thank you for looking at my blog post I hope it has inspired you to try using the Jessie Flourish.


Dream big by Judith Armstrong

by admin ~ June 24th, 2014

Good morning. Today I have a layout to share with you using some FWAB flowers and bling.

I’m still milking the photos I took on Mother’s Day and have combined my FWAB goodies with Kaisercraft Dream Big patterned paper and collectables.


I created the background using a stencil and texture paste. Then I stamped around the edge with a text stamp and peach ink. Finally, I flicked some teal spray around the outside of the texture paste.

I created a base piece for my photo to sit on using a strip of punched patterned paper and a sticker from the range. Then I matted my photo and placed on this base. I used a chipboard circular frame and then added my embellishments along the bottom. I used a couple of FWAB Elise burnt orange flowers situated amongst some Peterloo botanic flowers. I added some more chipboard and overlaid it with a FWAB Elise Silver Rhinestone Flourish cut up into two pieces. Lastly, I added a few of the Collectables from the range. Here are a few closeups.




Thanks for looking.

My Cheeky Monkey – Tracey Fowler

by admin ~ June 22nd, 2014

Hi Everyone,

It has been such eventful scrapping month since I last posted.  I was fortune enough to go to the Brisbane Scrapbook Expo and help in the classroom with two very talented ladies teaching Angella Peardon and Sonia Thomason.  I had such a fabulous time catching up with many people and meeting many others.  Of course I managed to come home with a few (or many) new goodies and was inspired by all the talent that was on display at the show.

The project I would like to share with you today is a layout that I have created of my younger son.  He really is a “Cheeky Monkey” but has such a fun , easy going personality and is very loveable!

I have used two of  the vibrant FWAB Jessie Flourish Cherry Red.

I have cut the FWAB Jessie Flourish Cherry Red  into pieces as that way I can create the illusion that the flourish is entwined in the cluster.



I have also used FWAB Maddison Flowers 3pk – Chocolate. This flower worked well at a feature of the cluster.


“My Cheeky Monkey”


Don’t forget that you still have plenty of time to grab a real bargain with


that’s right ALL of our beautiful products are only $2 each!

Make sure you visit FWAB Store and stock up on some fabulous goodies.

Happy Scrapping

Shaker card tutorial by Judith Armstrong

by admin ~ June 17th, 2014

Good morning FWAB fans. It’s my turn this month to do a tutorial. I love making interactive cards so I thought I’d share with you a couple of ways of making shaker cards .

Here are the 2 cards I will be showing you how to make.


First I will be explaining how to make the ’16′ birthday card which has the shaker part embedded in the card so that the front is flat.

  1.  For my first card I decided to make a star shaped shaker.  I used 2 different sized Spellbinder nestability dies  but really you just need 2 different sized templates that you can cut out.
  2. Make the base of your card from cardstock such that the larger of the templates will fit on to the front of it easily.
  3. Cut your  foam so that it is slightly smaller than the front of the card but still large enough for the larger shape to fit on. Cut out the larger shape from the foam. I used 2 pieces as I was adding beads for the shaker and it needed to be quite deep. Also my foam was fairly thin. Glue the foam together if using more than 1 sheet.
  4. Cut a square piece of patterned paper to form the back of the shaker . Embellish it. I just used some single adhesive FWAB teal pearls to created a number.
  5. Cut a square piece of acetate to form the window.
  6. Cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the front of the cardstock base to form the front of the card. Place the foam on the back of the paper and trace where the window is going to be. Then place or trace your smaller die/template inside this so that the front window is smaller than the back and cut it out.
  7. Construct your card. Embellish as desired.
  8. 20144-002

Voila you should now have a shaker card.


My second type of shaker card has the shaker standing proud of the card.

  1. For this you need to cut a piece of patterned paper in the shape of the shaker to form the back of the shaker. I embellished it with a sticker and some FWAB olive green adhesive pearls
  2. Adhere thin width foam tape around the edge of the shape in one continuous piece (Tip: I found it easier if I removed all backing from the tape). I did 2 layers as I was using beads but if you were just using glitter, 1 layer would do.
  3. Cut a piece of acetate to the same size as your base and adhere to the top of the foam tape.
  4. Create a frame which has an opening slightly smaller than your shaker so that you don’t see the foam tape and adhere to the front of your shaker.


Create a card and adhere the shaker to the front and embellish as desired.


 I hope this has inspired you to have a go at shaker cards and use FWAB to embellish them.



Simplicity is Beautiful

by admin ~ June 16th, 2014

Hello it is Kim here today sharing a layout that I have created on my beautiful niece’s wedding and i feel that the photo was best suited to a simple yet elegant layout.

I have used randomly placed pearls in blue just to highlight the splatters of mist I have used.

As you can see from the close up I have used different sizes to also help create dimension in the layout.

Good morning FWAB fans. It’s wonderful to be back here for another 6 months and carry on working with the FWABulous Flourish With a Bling products.

Today I have a grungy layout to share with you. This layout features a photo of my kids taken on Mother’s Day, one of the few days I can get them to cooperate in photo taking and I have used Mr Fox Kaisercraft collection. I created the background by stamping around the edge and included some copper heat embossing on the edges and in the middle of the page. I also used a stencil and added some metallic texture paste and finally I flicked some splotches of spray around.


I love how the white Elise flowers can be sprayed to complement your layout. I have sprayed these two with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Cattail Copper Brown. I also cut off some swirls from the Grace Pearl Flourish in Copper and added them to complement the flowers.


I also dotted a few individual copper adhesive pearls around the page.


I hope I’ve inspired you to get grungy.

Thanks for looking.
