Introducing Tina Connolly | Design Team 2014

I have been scrapbooking on and off for about twelve years, but started to become seriously addicted around five years ago.  My scrapping style varies dependent on what type of photos I'm using.  It can vary from feminine, shabby chic to grungy, mixed media, but my creations are usually layered and textural. 

I really enjoy using lots of techniques on my pages, and have the most fun scrapping when I'm experimenting.  I love getting my hands 'dirty' with paint, mists, and mediums, and altering my paper in as many ways as possible.  My layouts are inspired by the photos and the memories, and feelings they evoke, and usually feature my two daughters.

I teach scrapbooking, OTP, and card classes at "Greenbank Scrapbook Shop", and "TJ's Scrapping With Style" in addition to various Scrap Camps and charity fundraisers. I have been published in Scrapbooking Memories, Australian Scrapbook Ideas, and Scrapbook Creations magazines, and numerous online magazines.

I am currently on the Design Team for Twiddleybitz (Australian chipboard manufacturer), and Scrapping Outback.  I have previously been on a number of Design Teams including Artfull Crafts (NZ), Words Or Whatever,  Paper Secrets (USA) and a staff contributor on Scrapbook News and Reviews online magazine.

I live at Jimboomba (a semi-rural area south of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia) with my husband, Paul, and two (sometimes darling) daughters.

Hi everyone, today I'm sharing the card I created using the new Glamour Days and Momento dies.

1. Cut 12 x 6 inch piece of Core'dinations Gemstones Pearl cardstock for card base

2. Cut 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inch Coredinations black cardstock and adhere to base.  *Tip: Expose a small amount of double sided tape and create a tab as shown.  (makes it easy to line things up straight)

 Once aligned, press the corner and pull the tab to expose the adhesive. Press along each edge.

3. Cut 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inch Couture Creations Damask Delight paper and adhere.

4. Diecut and emboss Ornamental Lace Die 'Cappuccino' from Core'dinations Gemstones Pearl cardstock.

5. Adhere using Couture Creations 3D Foam Mini Dots.

6. Attach metal foil tape to cardstock and diecut and emboss Glamour Days Intricutz Die '1950's Albert & Simonetta'.

7. Colour dress and suit using an alcohol or solvent based ink.  Allow to dry, then colour with Glitzin' Glamour Glitter Glue, and once dry, adhere to card.

8. Attach Gemstones in each corner.
