Sonja is on the blog today with an amazing double scrapbook layout filled with memories of her sweet dogs. She pairs Rinea Copper Glossy Foil with foiled paper by DCWV and they work wonderfully together!!
It is still hard to believe we don't have clip clops of puppy dog nails on the floors anymore. No more dog hair, puppy kisses, or wiggle butts running around the house.
While our girls have joined each other over the Rainbow Bridge in the last three years, I was still able to capture many happy moments that will last a life time on paper! For whatever reason, this months Stack-a-holic challenge from DCWV made me think of these photos from a few years ago. It was a match made in scrapbook heaven! Speaking of heaven made matches, I was able to use a lot of Rinea Copper Foil for this layout. It matched DCWV's 'Rose Quartz' stack perfectly.
Dakohta Maei was our white/brown boxer mix who we more often or not referred to as Moo-Moo. She passed away December 30th, 2013 at almost 9 1/2 years old. We had her literally from the day she was born. She was the only pup that I was able to witness be born from my brothers mama dog. She was our gentle giant who HATED water!
Seaka Raei was our brindle full bred boxer who was my birthday gift. We had her at 6 weeks old. She passed away October 2nd, 2016 at 10 years and 8 months old. I have yet to adjust to not seeing her in the window when we pull up in the driveway. She loved water!
Here is how I made this double layout.
1) To start with I was able to emboss the copper sheets of Rinea Foil with my Big Shot and a puppy dog paw embossing folder by Darice.
2) Cut a bunch or rectangles in the copper and black to adhere the photos to. Settings for these cuts are on copy paper, blade at a 1, and I find that thickness at 7 works just right for the copper.
3) I grabbed this gorgeous quartz cardstock from the DCWV stack and did the circles.
4) Measured and laid out the copper first. It just so happens that the full sheet the comes in the package was just the right fit for what I needed. Then I added the banner at the top of the copper.
One little thing I do when working on matching layouts is cut the objects in half before removing them from the mat. A simple line drawn down the middle in Silhouette Studio, aligned middle and center works great!
Now comes the fun part. Putting it together and adding all the special little touches! The rose and copper paired nicely

Betz Golden has joined our design team and here is her first project as a designer with our team!! She made this cute card with a pop out and the Rinea foil in Copper. Check it out!
There are so many fun and creative ways to make a card. This is a great technique to use on cards to make them extra special – pop outs!
The materials needed to make this card include:
Copper Rinea Foil Glossy Paper
Here is a step by step tutorial on how to make the card.
1) Trim the Rinea foil paper to .25 inches less than card on both sides. For example, if your card measures 4 inches by 5.5 inches, you would trim it to 3.75 by 5.25 inches.
2) Emboss the Rinea foil paper
3) Using a fast drying ink lightly run ink pad over embossed Rinea. This will help the embossed pattern POP! Set aside to dry.
4) Stamp image and color.
5) Since this is a pop out card and the image is serving as the focal point for both the front and the inside of the card, it is important to decorate the inside too! Carefully fussy cut the stamped image or use a circle cutter making sure it is smaller than the circle it is popping through on card.
6) Cut a piece of scrap paper .25 inches wide by about 1.5 inches tall. Fold it up like you would to make a paper spring. Attach one end of paper spring to the image, and the other image to the inside of the card making sure image pops through card opening.
7) Adhere Rinea paper to card front.
8) Flip Card over and cut six slits (an X and + over the x)
9) Tear off a few of the pieces of Rinea foil paper and use a pencil to roll back the rest revealing the image. Make sure the image pops through the front of the card. Keep rolling back the Rinea and/or tear until the image pops through.
Your pop out card will fit in a regular sized envelope and is ready to be mailed! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. Please share your pop out cards making sure you tag #Rineafoil and me (Scrappygal75 on Instagram). I would love to see what you create!
Until Next Time – Happy Crafting!
