frolic mini album
by Alice Wilks
A fabulous mini album by iamabsolutelyalice using our Frolic collection… Alice has used both the sentiments and motifs ephemera from this range, craft tickets, chipboard embellishments and frames, and puffy stickers along with the papers. She has also made her own simple embellishments by cutting strips of paper and folding them and sewing over the top. You could use this album for photographs or recipes. On some of the tickets Alice has sewn tulle over the top and enclosed some sequins inside, making a little shaker.
Remember to make use of our Value Packs, which are 20% off the full price of the individual products, if you want the entire collection of Frolic!
frolic cut files
cards by Tracy Britton
Take a look at the two cards made using Frolic cut files, available to download on our website. They can be scaled up for use on 12×12 layouts, or down for cards.
Front door card: for my front door card, I used two of the 6×6 papers to create a “wall” and “ground”. I thought the scalloped dots on white looked like pretty weatherboard, and the ditsy flowers on green made an excellent ground.
I used three teeny butterflies with gold foil on the from the Frolic diecut ephemera, and the wee yellow banner is from the Frolic diecut sentiments.
The papers and the door are fixed to the front of my card with double-sided tape. The thinner elements were glued down with tacky glue. The remaining elements were all fixed to the card with foam tape to give it dimension. Lastly, I tied a small bow onto the yellow banner.
This was a really easy card to make and lots of fun! The door would look fantastic cut from Christmas papers too.
Bunny in teacup card: for this card I’ve used both the bunny and teapot, which come together in one cut file; I also think either of these sweet cut files would look great a little bigger on their own, or you could use the base of the cup and make a cute stack of cups with Frolic embellishments as the cup pattern.
For this card I chose one of the Frolic 6×6 papers to stick down using double-sided tape. As the cut files were so lovely, I chose a plainer paper in pink.
I assembled the bunny and cup and the teapot using tacky glue, and when they were dry I placed them on the card with foam tape. I also used foam tape to secure the diecut sentiment. I wanted to use the white “adored” tag and tie it to the teapot’s handle… but found the foiled “adored” faced the wrong way for my project, so I stapled another sentiment (also “adored”) to the back of the tag and used it that way. I’ll give the card to someone I doubley adore, hehe!!
Take a look at the other cut files:
So Sweet and Hello Spiring would look great as cards or on photo layouts. (head over to the Better Together projects and see how I’ve used this type of phrase on a 12×12 layout.)
The scalloped file would make a fantastic background, you could cut scalloped strips out of a few of the papers to put together randomly. The strips fit behind the scalloped framework, or can be layered and used on their own. There’s also the floral frame – which would look sweet around the front of a card with a diecut circle in it, or laid over a photo cut into a circle.
cards, pinwheels and tag
by Lissa Rees
Lissa’s first three cards used both sets of ephemera, the 6×6 papers and enamels. The words Thanks is in our Frolic Clear Acrylic Stamps set.
Both the pinwheels and tag use puffy motif stickers along with 6×6 papers and the tag also uses both sets of ephemera.
The last card adds in some of the wood veneers from the Frolic range, which Lissa has coloured in with ink.
