Minc to the Max
Hi there x Sheena here again.
I recently gained a new crafting toy – The Minc Machine. Ive loved all the gold details that we’ve had in various ranges over the past couple of seasons & the thought of creating these myself easily was my reason for this purchase. I’ve made 2 pages & a card using my Minc machine to share today with papers & embellishments from Pink Paislee – C’est La Vie & Crate Paper – Maggie Holmes – Bloom. I would add that the shimmer & shine the foils give are quite difficult to photograph.
My Daughters school hold their Year 11 prom before the GCSE’s start so these photos are top of my pile to scrap at the moment. I used one of the 12×12 papers minc-ed light pink down the right hand side plus a couple of minc-ed labels & arrows in my embellishment cluster.
I also used my Minc toner ink marker for the first time to alter a couple of die cut flowers. It was so easy to do that I certainly be doing this again.
1. Flower die cut.
2. Minc toner pen added to dark areas.
3. Minc-ed using gold foil.
The gold highlights really catch the light.
When making the first page, I liked the negative pattern on the used Minc foil so much I decided to make a card to feature it. I added a few flowers & a Minc word foiled gold.
Our Son helped organise the school prom & friends captured these photos of the 2 of them together so I had to scrap them.
To get the title I wanted I cut my title from card that had been through our laser printer, then I put it through the Minc with mint green foil.
The photos were layered on lots of patterned papers with embellishments added in two corners with more Minc-ed labels & arrows.
I’ve enjoyed working with my new toy & know it will continue to feature on my scrapbooking pages x
