I’m thrilled to have Revlie Schuit as a guestblogger today. I love Revlie and her designs and we met many many years ago in her home country The Netherlands, when I started with my whole scrapbooking journey :) She makes the cutest Minialbums and tutorials – but see yourself :)
Ich freue mich I’m thrilled to have Revlie Schuit heute als Gast-Bloggerin begrüßen zu können. Ich liebe Revlie und ihre Arbeiten und wir haben uns vor vielen Jahren in ihrem Heimatland – in den Niederlanden – getroffen, gerade als ich mit meiner Scrapbookingreise began :) Sie kreiert die schönsten Minialben und Anleitungen – aber seht selbst :)
i’m addicted to creating mini-albums and i love using felt, fabric and other not really scrapbook related materials. there are so many lovely ways to use felt, and i just wanted to share a few with you.
felt is a cheap material and you can use it in any way you like. for this mini-album i used felt in numerous ways. first, i started with the title. don’t make it hard on yourself. write with pencil lightly on felt. cut it out with scissors and glue it on. if you need a guide, you can always use chipboard letters as a template or create your title in Word, print it out and use that as a template.
you can use felt as a page. make some cute flowers, simply works perfect for me. and when you use Tacky Glue it really really sticks.
use it for creating embellishments. or as a basis for your journaling.
embroider sweet words on it. create hearts & houses.
really. try. if you’ve used it once, you’ll keep coming back for more! i hope i inspire you just a bit to use some felt in your next creation!
