Here is the promised fabric scrapbook page tutorial.
You will learn how to use paper punches with fabric, put together a fabric layout, and use fabric paint.
You will need: (all available from Zig Zag)
Aleens fabric stiffener and draping liquid
3D jacquard lumiere (I used no. 210 bright copper) – with tips
distressed fabrics in various chosen colours
Fiskars boarder punch
Fiskars squeeze punch
Fiskars rotary cutter and matt
Non stick matt
Cut out of fabric your base of the page (12×12 if you scrapbook that size or as I did A4 size)
Also gather your own scraps…
Place your fabric on your non stick mat…Paint fabric stiffener on one side and wait for it to dry…
I also only put some on parts of my fabric pieces… And left other parts of the same piece..
Turn over your fabric pieces and put fabric stiffener on the other side… This method may take longer but it is more product efficient.
Once pieces are dry use your squeeze punch to punch out shapes…
PLEASE NOTE: do NOT force any punch… Some do not work. If it doesn’t feel like it will work STOP. I wouldn’t want you to break your punches… I am not responsible for you breaking your punches use at your own risk.
You can always use your cuttlebug dies or fancy rotary cutting blades.
Pin and sew pieces of fabric in place….
Sew on fibres
Sew on your punched hearts and photo…
Use 3D lumiere paint to finish off your page with hand drawn elements
You are done! All you need to do is wait for the paint to dry… Sweet!

Thanks for dropping by.
I hope you have been inspired to use fabric in a big way in your next scrapbook page. ;)
