There's so much beauty to share today with Safari Adventure! Marina BlauKitchen and Kathy Clement show you clever ways to use this vivid collection. Marina has a tiger breaking from its cafe and Kathy welcomes baby in a brilliant way!

First, Marina has this awesome Safari Adventure travel album! You will love a look at all her pages as well.

"A nice way to save summer memories is to make an album with a  pretty cover that invites you to open it to discover magical moments. This Square Tag & Pocket Album is perfect for that, you have a lot of space for photos, pages, pockets and also lovely tags.

About Safari Adventure Collection I must say that I am in love with it and I am sure it will become one of my favorite.

I think it has been a good idea to add some Graphic 45 washi tape, it’s a wonderful embellishment for the pages inside.

Tip:

1.- Not hesitate to use everyday objetcs to add to your work as I’ve done with these bamboo skewer. You sure discover a lot of things you can use and mix with this wonderful papers.


2.- Don’t throw away little pieces of these wonderful papers, you can use them in other projects and also make paper patchtwork with them and use it as background or embellishment. (See August Tip photos)." ~Marina

Now, take a look at Kathy's great "Welcome to our Jungle" card - what a great way to welcome a new baby!

"You never know when inspiration might strike, but when it does, I have learned to answer the call.  When I was tidying up after making a project, I found a scrap of Safari Adventure paper on my table.  This sweet image of a mama elephant and her baby caught my eye and I thought, “Wouldn’t this make the cutest welcome baby card?”

I challenged myself to work primarily with the scraps that were on the table and this card is the end result.  I just love the playfulness of this non-traditional baby card design, and hope you will, too.

Designer Tips for working with UTEE

  • I used a Spellbinder circle die to cut out my focal image, then heat embossed it with UTEE to give it the appearance of being framed under glass.  
  • When working with UTEE, tap the image with Versamark Embossing Ink, cover with the embossing enamel and heat from the underside to prevent the granules from flying off the image and all over your workspace.  Ask me how I learned this someday….
  • Hold the image with tweezers so you don’t burn your fingers.  Once the enamel is mostly melted, you can heat from the top.  I usually repeat this process 2 to 3 times to get really good coverage.  Let it cool a few minutes between coats.
  • Let the image cool completely before matting.  If you touch it before it’s completely set, you’ll leave your fingerprints behind.
  • If you can’t resist touching the image (who would ever do that, I want to know! ) and you smudge the UTEE, all is not lost.  Just gently reheat the top of the image until the UTEE melts back into place.  " ~Kathy
