Ebony & Ivory plus Mother’s Day

1 Apr

I have been a busy gal making my samples for two up coming workshops; the Ebony and Ivory Brag Book and the Frame It Gelati Mother’s Day. 

Ebony and Ivory Brag Book

The Ebony and Ivory Brag Book is actually available as a quick kit for $19.95 which provides you with instructions and a huge bunch of SB papers and Bazzill.  I really think the E & I range is one of the most elegant paper ranges around.  It’s perfect for so many scrapbook worthy occassions; weddings, engagements, milestone birthdays; anniversaries; heritage photo’s as well as being a great neutral colour scheme for family and/or friends layouts.  It also lends itself perfectly to making cards, you can just get so many gorgeous combinations out of it.  There’s even a co-ordinating unmounted rubber stamp set too!

If you love the idea of quick kits which include everything you need to make a gorgeous project (just add your tool kit) and instructions to guide you, check out what else is available in the Ebony & Ivory range:

  • Surprise Box
  • Hinged Ring Album
  • Tag It
  • Chipboard Lace It
  • Cut-Crop-Assemble

Of course these are all available in our other fabulous paper ranges as well.  You can see all of them in our catalogues here.  These make a great gift too either made up or still in kit form for those papercraft friends!


I think you can easily see that making the Frame It Gelati Mother’s Day workshop sample allowed me to have a play with something I’ve not really used before in scrapbooking – GLITTER!  It’s such a pretty colour too.  It’s called Rainbow and is a frosty, pale kind of iridescent shade.  I’m really happy with the result.  It’s great that you can buy chipboard frames from Kaszazz to decorate in your own style and they’re only $6.95 each – what a bargain!  I have an idea brewing in the back of my mind for a workshop that uses the chipboard frame in a different way, I need to sit down and have a play, I think it will work – I’ll keep you posted.  The Frame it workshop is $30 per person if you are interested in making this gorgeous keepsake for that special woman in your life – or even for yourself!  Just email me at krismarr(at)primusonline(dot)com(au) for details.

Happy scrappin’.

    I love your excitement about glitter. I was like that too when I was making Christmas cards for a friend of mine (she has a new baby and didn’t have the time or the free hands to do them) and she suggested I used glitter….well by the time everything was done I was coated in the stuff and was finding glitter on me for weeks! *laugh*
    But at least the cards looked good!
    I can’t wait to see more of your stuff!

      Hi Naomi
      I did end up with glitter everywhere! It was fun though and I liked the effect especially coating it with glossy accents to seal in the sparkle. I’d like to use this technique on some cards and scrap layouts now. Is glitter addictive ? I remember how popular it was in make up a few years ago!
      Thanks for the comment

      Hi Sharynne
      Yep I love the E & I Brag Book too – I think it is the best one so far! Just adore those SB papers.

    Hi Kris,

    I just had to drop you a few lines to once again say I love your webpage!!! I always find it so inspiring!!!!
    I really liked the Frame It Gelati Mother’s Day sample you created. I think its great how you include personal photos in your examples. It makes your readers feel like they know you and is a change from the run of the mill instructional scrapping sites that are everywhere.


    P.S. Be careful – glitter is sooooooooooo addictive!!!!!!
