Jan-Feb 08 Inspirational Scrapper

Artz de Scrap's Chosen Inspirational Scrapper for Jan 08 is

Caroline Rondel


I'm Caroline, I live in North East of France. I've been living with my boyfriend for almost 9 years, but we don't have children at the moment, but hopefully very soon! I've been scrapping for 1 year now, and it's really something that helped me find myself. Sometimes it can be a therapy! I'm also designing for Scrap-idées & Buzz & Bloom. My style is mostly freestyle and mixed media. I like bright colors and messy layouts! I've very honoured to have been asked to do this tutorial about my work, I hope you will like it !

Tutorial #2

Altered Alpha

Create something different! Alter an initial for that Special Someone and make it with LOVE!!!

Supplies needed:
2 Sheets of Making Memory Papers, 1pc of Transparent Paper
Making Memories Stickers, Toga Alphabet Sticker
Book Pages, Ribbons, Buttons, Fabric Flowers
Eyelets, Distress Ink - Fired Brick
Stazon Ink - Teal Blue, Ranger Stickles (glitter)
Step 1: Cut The Papers
Place your C on your flowered paper and trace around the C alpha.
Do the same with the striped paper.
Cut the C Shapes
Step 2: Make the embellishments before glueing your papers on the alpha.
On the flowered side, I glued false and real buttons and a transparent tag.
I stamped a frame (Autumn Leaves) with StazOn on the transparent sheet. Cut it out and I pasted alphabet stickers on it. I distressed the stickers so that the colours would match.
On the striped side, I glued buttons and word stickers (Making memories). I attached flowers with eyelets (that's why its important not to glue the papers before).
Step 3: The Edges
Ink your book pages with distress ink.
Tear them in little stripes. The width should approximately match the edges of the letter.
Ink all around the stripes
Step 4: Glue
Glue your C shapes on each side of the alpha. Ink all around.
Glue stripes of book pages all over the edge of the alpha, inside and out.

Teared edges gives a vintage look to your project.

Then you can give the final touches by attaching the ribbons and glueing the transparent frame with invisible dots
And these are our take on the tutorial

We would love to see your take on this tutorial.
Do share it with us, email us at
Happy Altering!!!
