Hello Scrappy Friends,
Tanya here with a Stationery Desk oganizers using the stunning Soo Shabby decoupage paper collection by Bob n Betty..!
I’m quite new to decoupage but trust me it was so simple to achieve this beauty with these decoupage specialty papers and I thoroughly enjoyed making this project.
This collection is beyond stunning and has all my favourites’ clocks and flowers, a perfect combination!
So I decided to make a set of boxes for my desk in my craft room for all my scrapbooking tools, scissors, rulers, adhesives and ink pads etc.
I painted each of the boxes with white acrylic paint. I then cut the sheets from the collection to fit each box and decoupaged all using mod podge.
Hope you like this as much as I enjoyed making it!
Hope you all had a colorful Holi..! Well, I’m having some great time playing with the minions…..are you too looking for some crafty adventures..?? then get ready to try something new.
I have something really cute and witty to share with you all, yess they are Minion themed shaker elements, designed with Bob n Betty’s latest release Ba-Ba-Banana. This is a decoupage specialty series, but to my surprise, these papers works so well with the cardstock too, I’m definitely going to experiment with other paper lines as well in this category.
Shaker cards are trending massively these days, and I too think that they never fail to delight, hence I absolutely love incorporating them in my creations.
So If you’ve never tried your hands on this technique, I hope you’ll be encouraged to try it after today’s post because they are so easy to make..! 🙂 🙂
Come lets have a look…..
I have designed a magic card too, don’t miss to check out its video..!
Pratyusha here with a super quirky project this time, after all its made from the latest minion themed papers released by Bob n Betty 🙂
The moment I layed my eyes on these, I knew I wanted to make a wearable pair of shoes. I wear shoes most of the time to college as well so had an extra pair, which I haven’t used at all. So decided that this time I should make Minion Inspired shoes for myself.
The procedure is as follows:
1) I primed the canvas shoe with a coat of gesso.
2) Gave a base coat of Cadmium Yellow.
3) From the paper pack I cut out minions in different sizes and use decoupage matt glue to glue them to the sides of the canvas shoe.
4) For the tongue of the canvas shoe I cut out the pattern from the paper pack with blue background and yellow polka dots. I didn’t have to do much work here as the papers themselves have a lot of depth. I pasted the pattern again using decoupage matt glue.
5) Once everything was dry used Ochre yellow to put in some highlights.
6) Added black paint to accentuate the design and let everything dry overnight.
7) Gave a coat of water based varnish and let it dry
And tadaa…my own pair of decoupaged Minion shoes is ready to flaunt!!! I already wore it to a small party 🙂
Quite a quirky pair I would say!!!
Hello everyone ,
Roshni here with an awesome project to share with you all. When I think of decoupage I look for the old and ignored objects lying at my home to give them a new life completely. So I had this typewriter at home, that I planned to decoupage and turn it into a beautiful piece of art.
For this project I have used Bob n Betty’s “Vintage Wheels” decoupage specialty papers, and they have gone sooo well with the theme. These papers are quite easy to work with as they are so thin yet sturdy that makes it easy to fold them in almost any shape, hence the risk of damaging your project is almost zero…..they are a must buy for newbies.
For my project, I first decided which paper I wanted to use on which part of the typewriter and then I traced that part and cut the paper accordingly. Once the cutting was done I simply started applying mod podge and sticking the paper alongside. Once the glue dried, I filed the edges using sand paper and applied a coat of vanish over it.
There comes the most interesting stage….I embellished it with flowers , micro beads, mica flakes etc. .. and my completely new yet vintage typewriter was ready … it not only looks good but is completely functional too 🙂
Though it was difficult to fit the typewriter in the frame I have tried my best and have filmed this video showing the transformation. I hope you all like it….
Winters have almost set in and isn’t the cold weather crept up on us and it feels like we’ve had to dust off jumpers and jackets overnight? Fortunately there are plenty of things you can do to get your home ready for a cozy Winter – and I’m here with some gorgeous shabby chic style home accessories, that will help you beat off the cold, dreary months in style.
Winter mornings call for something relaxed. Perhaps in bed before the day warms up. What can be better than hot coffee or tea served in a warm shabby chic tray?
So let’s get started to create some old cottage style accents, which are trending in a big way this season!
Bob n betty’s Soo Shabby and Coral Cluster range of papers are perfect to achieve the country style, soft pastel floral decor. I began with choosing the prints of my choice and then painting the trays with a base colour. This is the colour that you want the cracks and the worn out parts to show through. After the base coat dried completely, i applied the clear crackle medium unevenly around the edges. This coat again needs to dry for about 30 minutes. Next, I chose the final colour and painted the whole tray with it and left it to dry over night. As the paint dries, the crack appears. Then, I sanded off edges and to give it a rustic, worn out look. Finally, decoupaged the base,
did some shabby script stenciling and sealed the tray with varnish. Further, I rolled some jute twine around the grips to complete the rustic look.
So, how did you like it? Try it out with patience and do share your projects with all of us!
This is Roshni with a new project made with the Soo Shabby Decoupage Specialty Paper series from Bob n Betty. This time I’ve tried my hands on beautifying a seashell.
Well, who doesn’t love seashells, all of us love to collect them…isn’t it?
So here I am with a tutorial on how to do decoupage on a seashell. I must say this is the best way to give a new life to the seashells you must be hoarding since ages 🙂

Anita here with another project made with Bob n Betty’s “Blazing Bunches” paper collection.
This time I have created with Wall Clock, using this mesmerizing collection. Memories become a treasure with Time. Time has wonderful ways of showing us what really matters and the memories that we cherish become priceless with time. So here I am with this beautiful project using the 3D decoupage technique on a Wall Time Piece. I have layers of flowers fussy cut from the paper pack itself, with wood graining in the centre to highlight the beauty of the flowers that are strewn throughout the paper collection.
Here are some close pictures of the Time Piece.
Hope you all loved this creation.
