Using Digital Paper with Transparency Sheets and Foil Posted on 23 Jul 11:00 , 16 comments

Hi everyone!  This is Darrel from and I'm super-excited to share my first project as a member of Melody Lane's Design Team.

This is a quick and easy project that is completely customizable, so it can be a versatile gift for any occasion or just a piece of fun decor.







1) Print digital paper on transparency sheet

2) Cut transparency to fit frame

3) Make a foil ball

4) Unroll the foil ball

5) Place transparency sheet on top of foil and roll with brayer

6) Cut foil to size and wrap around photo mat or chipboard

7) Layer the transparency and foil pieces

Now that you have the background complete, it's up to you to create something for the front!

Finishing Notes

For my front, I chose to use some foiled text on an additional sheet of transparency, but found the text displayed best with a piece of vellum behind it.

In the video, you can see the difference between using a darker, monochromatic background like the Amy paper I show in the video versus a more rich and vividly colored image, like the Jenny digital paper set provides.

There is no need to glue the transparency to foil as the layers of the assembled frame will keep things in place.  This makes it easy to swap designs if you want to freshen up a look!

The effect is best achieved when the foil is tightly pressed against the transparency, which the rear panel of the frame does quite well on its own. Try using additional pieces of cardstock or chipboard to shim things more tightly, if necessary.

I tried using some glossy Mod Podge to bond the transparency to the foil and it decreased the reflective bling of this technique, so I don't recommend it.

Lemonade Stand Card Featuring Lorrie Paper Posted on 16 Jul 04:00 , 14 comments

Hello! Shannon again with another card. It was cold and rainy here today, so I spent the day in my craft room. I came across a really cool card on Pinterest that was cut with a paper trimmer and stamped, so I thought I would try to recreate it in Design Space and share the file with everyone!

Notice the quilted table-cloth? That's 4 papers from the Lorrie collection! Don't they work just perfectly?! I used them as Pattern Fills for the triangles of the quilt, and then flattened everything together to make a very realistic and eye-catching table-cloth for the card!

You can find the link to the original project (which also includes a really great assembly tutorial), more information about how to use the Pattern Fill feature in this project, and the Design Space cut file on my Blog. I also highly recommend this really great video that Melody made to get better acquainted with pattern fills and digital paper. Enjoy!

Happy crafting!!

Introduction and Globe Card using Carmen Digital Paper Posted on 15 Jul 04:01 , 5 comments

Hello everyone! My name is Ian Garland and I am best known as the Off Kilter Crafter Ian on Youtube. This is my very first blog post here on Melody Lane Designs and I could not be happier to join the Design Team for Melody Lane.  I hope to get to know everyone better as we start on this wonderful journey and have fun along the way. For those who would like to get to know me a little better, I am currently 30 years old. I live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area in Texas. Yes, I am a Texan though and though,  but I won't hold it agents you if you are not. ;-) I have not been crafting for too long, only about 2 or 3 years at this point, but I love to do it in my free time. I work a lot and my full time job keeps me very busy, but I always find time to craft and present a new craft on my Youtube channel every Friday. I hope you will subscribe to my Youtube channel and check out my other videos that I have available for you. 

Now, on to the project that I designed. I used the Carmen Digital Paper Set to create this really great background for the Sizzix and Tim Holtz globe foreground. I love that this Sizzix and Tim Holtz kit comes with dies, stamps, and an embossing folder. You can use all of these items to create many different cards or even scrapbook pages in so many different ways. Check out this video of me putting together.
