Soda Pop Top as Scrapbook/Card Embellishment

Enjoy this video as I take some things around the house that you would through away and turn it into fabulous and can be unique Scrapbook or Card Embellishments.

In this video we used some Marble Alcohol Inks from Viva Decor (I’ll provide you with more info on that later, so don’t email me about where to get it because I can’t tell you yet….or rather email me if you are interested in being contacted with where you can get it later 😉 )  I used these inks right on Soda Pop Tops.

This paper is from Collage Press it’s the Joyride Collection and we used some snowflake stickers and bronze brads for an easy to put together page that will go right along side of the Happy Day layout I posted last week 🙂

Have a Happy Day and can’t wait to share more fun very soon 🙂

By the way – I’ve gotten several emails and comments about my nails.  The color is called “Dear Santa” it’s by OPI – thanks so much – I LOVE pretty nail polish and mixing it up every few weeks 🙂  If you have any nail color recommendations, let me know – I’ll check into it 🙂


  1. Your layout turned out so pretty.(And you made it look so easy)
    I can’t wait to hear more about the inks you used in the video.

    Meghan – beautiful layout – I love to watch how you mix patterns and cardstock – great ideas. I so need to work outside of my box and try mixing and doing layouts with patterned paper!!

  4. Great video!
    I love OPI’s Champagne Toast! It’s a very nice mauve. I get compliments all the time on my tootsies. My pedicurist pulls it out when she knows I’m coming and I have a bottle at home for touch-ups.

  5. I love love love this. The colors are just fabulous. The paper seems so thick and durable. I truely love thick paper I think it makes everything look better. Awesome idea of how you put two papers together to make one 12 X 12 page. I’ll have to try that. Good work would love to see it with the pictures on it. Have a great week. 🙂

  6. Nice page. I like the colors and the way you created a 12×12 page using two papers. I will have to try this method.

  7. Love the Pop Tops. Your layout was neat and quick.

  8. Great piece! Love the Viva Decor inks (can’t wait for more info) and also the idea of using things that would typically be thrown away. More of those types of projects Plz 🙂 Thanks so much!

  9. Yeah! A video. 😀
    those POP TOPS worked marvelous!
    You are just to clever. I’m looking
    forward to hearing more about those
    inks. They look more opaque. I
    think I’ll like them better than Tim’s.
    I just can’t seem to get those to do
    right. 🙁
    Watching for the membership info. 🙂

    (hug) TR

    Love this idea. Gonna try it tonight. Loved your video “Cricut A to Z too”!! I took it to JoAnn’s today to show the ladies there as they are having a problem finding a teacher to teach the class. I have learned so much from your video. Where can we buy those inks you used? They are another must have. Will you be selling them at the Hobby show in Anaheim? I will be there for sure. Thanks again.
