Scrapbooking Day 2017 Recap - Double Layered Heat Embossing with Clearly Besotted

May 6th was (National) Scrapbooking Day 2017 and I spent the whole day hosting an online cyber crop for The Paper Crafting magazine.

But I wasn't alone, oh no, there were a great turnout for the cyber crop event and I also was so fortunate to have two sweet visitors IRL from the Danish Operation Write Home - Operation Skriv Hjem, who spent the day crafting with me.

For the event I had prepared 3 different challenges for the participants and of course I joined in myself :)

Here is one of the projects I made during the day........


For this project I wanted to do Double Layered Heat Embossing. Basically, it means you put two different patterns/texts on top of each other with heat embossing.

For the first layer I used a diagonal striped background stamp. Here with the green embossing powder. 

Then I used a leafy stamp for the second layer of heat embossing. And a word of advice - I speak from personal experience ;)

When you work with double layer heat embossing then do not put your fingers anywhere on the first layer of heat embossing just after melting the second layer. It will only give you finger prints in your embossing powder as the first layer also gets heated up again!

I had to cover up such a mistake with the butterfly ;)


This was the challenge which my project was based on:

Hope you have an inspirational day,

Scrapbooking Day 2017 Recap - Ink Blending with Black

May 6th was (National) Scrapbooking Day 2017. Did you go crafty on May 6th??
I was definitely crafty as I spent the whole day hosting an online cyber crop for The Paper Crafting magazine.

But I wasn't alone, oh no, there were a great turnout for the cyber crop event and I also was so fortunate to have two sweet visitors IRL from the Danish Operation Write Home - Operation Skriv Hjem, who spent the day crafting with me.

Here is one of the projects I made during the day........


I have always been a bit scared of using black Distress Ink on blending projects. But during the Cyber Crop Event one of the participants had done just that and it look amazing. 

So this is my go at using black ink for an ink blending project and I am very, very happy with the result. The black Distress Ink doesn't look THAT black when it comes to it!


The Danish sentiment means "Congrats" or "Happy Birthday".

Under supplies used you can see which ink colours I have used for this card. 

This was the challenge which my project was based on:

6 Months Till Christmas

Can you believe it? There is only 6 months till Christmas now!

Today I am sharing a Christmas card on which I have used two old stamp sets from British Clearly Besotted Stamps. Oh my, I have been a huge fan of them for years ever since I came accros their brand :)

This card is created for the Danish Operation Write Home - Operation Skriv Hjem - for the monthly Christmas card inspiration. Each month we do our best to inspire on the Operation Skriv Hjem blog :)

How cute is this little house. And the sentiment is so fitting :)

Do you get around to create Christmas cards all year round?? Or do you make them all in November and December??

Have fun crafting :)
