SDC 155 Newspaper or Magazine

Magda is our hostess this week and here is her Stampotique challenge!

Hello everyone! It's Magda. I'm back to work after my holidays but still have time for some relaxing. I'm sitting surrounded by books and magazines. Today I would like to ask you to use a newspaper or magazine in your project. It can be a small piece, some images from magazine to make a collage or you can use whole page as a background. Have fun! Can't wait to see your creations!


I used these circles from a Micro Mart Magazine article and some text from an old book.

Wanted to make something clean and simple, decided to make a medium sized Artist Trading Block (ATB) using the Eileen Hull Sizzix Die.


Not used any inks or stamps on the thick board, keeping it simple. Cut out the circles, glued in place. Added a layer of Rainbow Glaze over the top, added a black circle around the shape, added a heart on each circle and a stem or line.


Haven’t stuck the block all the way down as i want to add some little love affirmation cards inside. Haven’t made these yet but will do very soon.



The above image is the base of the box.




Added some gold glittery gems under the circles and some ripped washi tape to ground them. 

Thank you for dropping by, looking forward to your comments.
