Summer Fun

Happy Tuesday to you! I have a project to share with you featuring pieces from the June Club Q kits by Quick Quotes and using my fabulous Canon Pixma IP8720 Printer.


I recently had the opportunity to go to a crop and grabbed the June Club Q kits that I had and my 2017 PowderPuff Chalk Inks along with my photo collage that I printed out in advance.


I cut apart a few of the die cut elements and layered them in a grid pattern as a focal point for my collage photo. I liked the way the layered frames mimic the pattern and design of the collage. Using the die cut pieces from the kit made assembly of this page super quick and easy!


For the die cut title in the kit, I applied some Bora Bora PowderPuff Chalk Ink to tint it a bit darker. Once it dried, I added some Wink of Stella to just the bottom part of the title to give it a reflective appearance. 


I created my photo collage using my Canon Pixma IP8720 printer and their My Image Garden software. It was super easy to do and I really like being able to use multiple photos in a single print. I used the Travel and Leisure 3 template from the software.

Weekend Adventures with BoBunny

Saturday greetings to you! I have a project to share with you today that I recently created for BoBunny featuring one of their newest collections, "Weekend Adventures".

BoBunny One Layout Three Ways featuring Weekend Adventures and Pentart Stencil Paste designed by Rhonda Van Ginkel

This project post is known as "1 Layout 3 Ways", I will share a page in three varying degrees of difficulty. The Weekend Adventures collection has such a fun array of patterns and designs to it as you will soon see.

The image above is a very basic design or "Level 1" that you can create using just the pattern papers in the collection along with some Noteworthy pieces. I did a bit of cut work for the oval layer with the floral that allows me to tuck my photo within.

Level 2, building in a few more pieces into the collage here, I have now included some chipboard elements and additional sentiments while keeping the rest of the design mixed media free. (Level 1 and Level 2 exclude any mixed media.)

Level 3, I worked in a few base pattern paper layers and added some Stamping, Glimmer Spray splatters along with a bit of Stencils and Pentart Stencil Paste. A variety of Dot Jewels are added as accents. To add a bit more dimension I also included some Layered Chipboard pieces.

I love the glitter accents of the Layered Chipboard pieces!

The two top layers are stitched on and edges gently distressed. Foam adhesive squares added so much texture on the page. Here's a surprise for you, the fireworks at the top (Good Vibes), are actually turned upside down. I thought it was a fun switch.

Of course I had to add a few Dot Jewels to accent the cute designs in this collection. This page was so much fun to build and it cam together so quickly.

Quick Quotes and Clear Scraps Cross Promo

Saturday greetings to you, it's Rhonda here to share a project with you as part of our week long cross promotion with Clear Scraps.

I've used one of our newest collections, Adventure Awaits which was perfect for our recent vacation photos from the beach in Florida.

I decided to use the 7x7 section from the Banners Acrylic 12x12 Page along with a photo that I printed out as an 8x10 and then cropped to fit. I used PowderPuff Chalk Inks on the back side to color coordinate with the photo. The bottom portion I used Latte and the upper portion I used a combination of Royal Blue and Caribbean Blue.

Next, I cut the other section of banners and layered it across the corner after applying some of the blues again on the back.

The page came together so nicely and I love that the focal point is the beach photo.

I used my Canon Pixma IP8720 to print out my 8x10 photo, then I trimmed to fit. You can easily customize the way you print the photo to ensure it will fit.

A Library of Memories with ScrapBerry's

Greetings and welcome to the blog, it's Rhonda here today to share a project with you featuring the timeless "Words Live Forever" collection by ScrapBerry's.

Library of Memory Vintage Scrapbook Page featuring Words Live Forever designed by Rhonda Van Ginkel for ScrapBerry's

This collection is so perfectly suited for all of those historical photos. When I looked at the papers, I knew immediately what photos that I wanted to scrapbook. Part of my family history involves this schoolhouse that was built for my grandfather and his eleven siblings so that they had a school to attend. Later on, it became a museum full of artifacts and rich with our family history.

I played off of the timeless elements in the papers by cutting a few pieces from the "Postcards for Pennies" paper to get the feel for the direction that the page would take. I started by layering the background papers so the "Moments" notebook sheet is on top of the "7th Street Library" paper. A bit of modeling paste and a clock stencil was added. I added a variety of ink splatters and set aside to dry.

A bit of stamping using the Photo Archive stamps, both the filmstrip and the lightbulb. I also cut out the phone and added it with foam squares. I layered in the washi tape, a few die cuts and of course that gorgeous "Wind of Travel" clock.

I really love to capture pieces of our family story and heritage for our children. This collection is perfectly suited for so many types of projects!
