Mini Album by Niharika Gupta, featuring the project made during FB live class

Hello Everyone,

Finally bringing the long awaited pictures of the complete album I made during the Facebook Live Class.
I didn’t add many things offline, just a bit here and there, which i will try to explain here and also i will try to mention the product names of a few things which I used and most people wanted to know their proper names.
Firstly, the adhesive that I used is the runner tape from Scrapbook Adhesives. It comes in variety, you can choose the type of adhesive you like (available at Crafters Corner)
The Embossing ball tool i used is from Dress my craft, medium size (available at Crafters Corner)
The Album is Kraft Memory Hardware Gatefold Journal from Prima Marketing, size 6.5″ X 6.25″
The Lock that I have used is Photo Frame Tied metal hook on the left flap (available at Madras Bazaar) with Tim Holtz clasp on right.
The Window is Memory Hardware Wood Shutters from Prima Marketing again.
Chipboard cutouts that I ended up using were from Scrapiniec and Dusty Attic sentiment chipboards.
I hope i have mentioned about the products most people were inquisitive to know. If still you have some doubt, or any question, please feel free to drop in a message in my inbox.
So the first thing i did after the class was to add my closure lock to the album. You can see how I attached the two pieces with a big bronze round brad in the pictures below. I liked the idea of my wooden window peeing from the center, so i didn’t mind the gap there and let the cover fall a little open at the middle. Added a few charms to the lock chain too.
Secondly, I added few more embellishments near the wooden window with a few splatters of white Gesso and gray chalk paint using my brush.
I ended up adding some splatters to the inside pages as well.
On the spine of the album, i added my favorite jute ribbon, it gives a wonderful texture to the spine.
—————–
I hope you enjoyed going through the pictures. Do drop in your comments to tell me what would you like to learn in the next live class with me.
Have an amazing, creative, and colorful week.
Love, Niharika.

MDF Set of Drawers – Decoupaged by Deepal Shah, feat. Roseate Paper Collection

Hello creative friends,

Deepal Shah here and am really excited to share my debut post as design team member for Bob n Betty. I am really honored and proud to be associated with this brand.

Today I am sharing with you all, the project I made with beautiful Bob n Betty Decoupage specialty paper collection Roseate.

First I sanded the two-drawer box well and applied gesso all over it. On the top base of the box I painted with acrylic colors so as to match with the background of the papers to be used on drawers and sides. Here I have used only one paper from the set.

Then I have pasted the paper cuts on front and sides with decoupage glue, carefully pressing and removing bubbles. Once it was dried I again applied decoupage glue on top of papers and let it dry. Once dried I applied Decoupage Varnish on the whole box.. even on the painted areas.

Lastly I added lace and miniatures on top of the box according to theme. This drawer box is multipurpose, can be used for storing keys, jewelry or precious mementos.

I had fun creating with these papers which already have too many elements added in one single paper making things easier for beginners also. Do try them and share your projects with us.

Happy crafting!!!

Reverse Decoupage on Glass Plate by Ruchika Gupta, feat. Roseate DecoPatch papers

Hello my crafty friends,

This is Ruchika from Caterpillar Designs and today I bring you a beautiful project that I am super-duper excited about, made with the latest ROSEATE – DECOPATCH papers by BobnBetty.

I have made a Glass Plate using reverse decoupage technique along with stencils, texture paint and crackle medium. The elements have a very English Victorian look that I love. And what I have done with the stencils is that I have hand painted each brick with paint to give a very realistic feel to the background. The results have come out stunning.

All the elements in the Roseate Decopatch papers are beautiful and can be used on any medium. The best part is that you can fuzzy cut them and arrange them as you wish and then crate a desired background for it.
So, what are you waiting for? Let your creativity flow and don’t forget to share it with us.

Floral CAS Cards Designed by Preeti Datta, Feat. Roseate Paper Collection

Hi folks!
Good Morning 🙂
Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety) here. How are you doing ?

Today, I’d like to share Four Floral CAS or Clean and Simple Style Cards designed using the new & absolutely gorgeous Roseate Paper Collection.

The floral images in this paper collection are beautiful & make perfect focal elements for all kinds of projects. All I needed to do was fussy cut some floral images and sentiments. No stamping or colouring required! In these cards, I’ve created different backgrounds using stencils, ink smooshing with inks to create a more organic look and loose water colouring. To add interest, I created ink splatter, added thread to some of the floral clusters and Nuvo drops for embellishment. The card panels were die cut & foam mounted on white A2 sized (4.25 by 5.5 inches) card bases.

2. Mix modelling paste with pigment powders and then apply the coloured pastes through stencils onto the prepared panels using a palette knife2

3. To add interest to the background, stamp using matching ink colors and also add some more color (and splatters) to the background using the same pigment powders & distress ink3

4. Fussy cut some of the beautiful images from the Roseate Paper Collection, these will be our embellishments4

5. Finally, gather some more elements like thread, lace, pearls, gauze, resin frames etc that may be needed while layering. For these cards, I decided to go simple & use only the fussy cut elements and some golden thread, adding some of the elements with 3d foam tape for added dimension. In the end, added some black and white ink splatter & perfect pearls. 5

A Multi-purpose organizer, decoupaged by Ruchika Gupta, feat. Roseate Decoupage Specialty Collection

Hello my crafty friends,

Today I bring to you my first project as Bob n Betty’s Design Team Member. A decoupage project – Makeup Organizer made with the new gorgeous BobnBetty Decoupage Specialty Papers “Roseate”. These papers have a beautiful Victorian romance feel to them and I absolutely love them. So much so, that I used almost the entire pack of papers on one project.

The best part about BobnBetty designs is that you don’t have to add too many elements to the design to make your projects look better. There is so much going on in the background of each design…newspaper print…text… patterns… dark and light flowers… paint splashes along with the one highlighted main element.

Here is the process you can follow to recreate an organizer:

  1. The first step is to sand the box well.
  2. The entire box is then painted maroon, matching the color of one of the flowers in the print.
  3. A subtle texture at the back of the tray and on the dividers with the help of stencils and paints gives a very nice soft look to the project.
  4. Decoupage the box with the desired prints on the 3 sides and also inside the tray and on the base of the top tray.
  5. With the help of distress inks, merge the edges.
  6. Added one of the matching flower elements from the Roseate Vol-1 DECOPATCH papers after fuzzy cutting, to the front divider of the organizer.
  7. Using gold paint, I stenciled the same pattern in the front of the box, to add another element to the look and feel of the box.
  8. To finish the box, I added a metal label embellishment and a tag saying ‘Beautiful You’.

This organizer can be used to store many things other than makeup. I would love to store even my crafting tools in it.
I had fun using these papers and I must say they are super easy to use even if you are a beginner at decoupage. Do try them and don’t forget to share your work with us in our Facebook group “Bob n Betty Buddies”.

Happy Crafting.
Love
Ruchika

A Scrapbook designed by Riddhi Jani, feat. Roseate paper collection

Hello guys,

Here I’m back with a new project for Bob n Betty. This time I made a scrapbook with the most beautiful paper collection of Bob n Betty “Roseste”, it is a simple scrapbook but there is something special in it. I have designed an envelope on the last page and along with the journaling cards it carries some heart shaped tags as inserts, which will grow in to a plant. Isn’t it beautiful to see your sentiments and wishes growing up into a plant to be cherished forever.

Measurements of the album is 8”8 inches and it can hold up to 60 pictures and thousands of memories with the growing plant.

I hope you all like this concept.

Mini Scrapbook designed by Sampada Srivastava, feat. Roseate paper collection

Hello Everyone,

Sampada here with my brand new project for Bob n Betty, using their new and the best paper collection “Roseate”.

I have made this album completely with the paper pack, not a single cardstock has been used to make this album, just expect few photo mats as fillers for pockets.

Also, I have not used any mulberry flower on the cover page, so this paper pack is a complete package of beautiful designs and fussy cutting elements, you can easily make your own embellishments and don’t need anything else to compliment your project.

Enjoy the pictures along with the video flip through here…..

Do let me know how you liked this project..

Much Love

Suchismita Chatterjee Datta – Hyderabad, India

Back in 2016, papercrafting happened to her as a way to fill her spare time on weekends and reconcile her love for paper, stationery, lace, and jewelry findings with a compulsive urge to preserve memories. As an instinctive papercrafter, she finds in her work a reflection of her mind and life experiences. Her current favorite is book-binding/junk journal making which helps her coalesce her love for literature, history, curiosities, domestic crafts, and all things vintage.

Suchismita lives in Hyderabad and has recently resumed work as a Quality Assurance specialist with a Big 4 professional services firm, after a crisis break of 16 months during which the occasional crafting she could do was her primary source of happy hormones.
