THE VAN ROE decorative dies

Step-by-step

My Heart, My Family by Tracey Cooley Tracey assembles a brilliant example of a family tree using some of the fabulous dies in our Van Roe collection.

CO723727 The Van Roe Decorative Die, Lucky Tree CO723723 The Van Roe Decorative Die, Royal Oval CO723724 The Van Roe Decorative Die, Elegant Square CO723048 Nesting Dies Victorian Square CO721971 Glitzin’ Glamour Glitter Glue, Crystalina

1. On grey cardstock use the largest Victorian Square Nesting Die, place on the edge of the page at bottom left hand corner and trace the edge with a pencil. Repeat this with the next size of nesting die and cut out. 2. Place an alternate coloured cardstock behind cut out sections, pierce small holes along the Victorian edge with paper piercer. Use a black pen to hand draw thin doodle lines around edge of base cardstock. 3. Take 3 sheets of darker grey card and cut as many Lucky Trees as possible. Cut 6 Lucky Trees from an alternate colour. Don’t worry about the trunk part of the tree as it is not that important to the inner part of your tree, but you will need 2 full Lucky Trees for its trunk. 4. Starting from the top of base cardstock start building family tree by laying out the tree form first. 5. Once you are happy with the outside shape of family tree, adhere the outside layer to base. Add Lucky Trees to form layers until the tree is full. Place the alternate colour trees in amongst the other foliage along the way as shown. 6. Add a touch of Crystalina Glitter Glue to the alternate coloured foliage for a bit of pizazz. 7. Finish off tree by adhering 2 Lucky Trees side by side to form a thicker trunk using the foliage to cover the last of stems from the bulk of the tree. 8. Die cut Royal Oval and Elegant Square Frames for family member photos from black cardstock. Print your family’s photographs and cut out their portraits with the same dies so they fit snug inside the black frames. Adhere to family tree with 3D Foam Mounting Squares. Add title and Voila!

Step-by-step 1. Mix texture paste with gesso and spread a thin layer onto scrap paper, take a piece of scrap bubble wrap and push onto paste mix on scrap, transfer to cardstock base and let dry! 2. Add some paint to paste mix to add colour and brush over bubble texture randomly, let dry. Add a small amount of Crystalina glitter glue to add sparkle. Set aside to dry! 3. Die cut 1 Photo Strip & 1 Ballet Tutu from kraft cardstock, 4 Lucky Trees from green cardstock, 2 Beautiful Butterflies and 1 Sign Post from white cardstock, 1 Royal Oval & Discover from black cardstock, 4. Cut Honeycomb Strips from newsprint vellum, 1 Royal Oval & 1 Large Victorian Square Nesting Die from a pattern paper. Ink edges of Ballet Tutu, Honeycomb and Victorian Square with black ink using a Sponge Dauber. 5. Arrange all die cuts on base as in photo. Ink around entire edge of layout with black ink. 6. Print one large and one small photo, cut out the main subject using scissors or craft knife. Place the larger image over the Victorian Square and the smaller in faux mirror. When you are happy with your arrangement adhere all pieces into place using double sided tape. 7. Embellish layout with small flowers and gemstones on the butterfly bodies and spread some Crystalina glitter glue on the butterfly wings.

Handy Hint

Try using a Heat Tool to speed up the drying process BUT be careful! Heat Tools are not like hair dryers and can produce a great deal of heat very quickly.
