My Creative Scrapbook- February 2017

00fullsizerender

Hello friends! Welcome back! I am very excited to have been asked to join the My Creative Scrapbook Design Team. In February 2017, I was technically a Guest Designer, however, I was asked to stay on the team. The February Main Kit was absolutely beautiful. I really enjoyed working with it. It featured the Simple Stories Posh Collection, which is one of my favorite collections of all time and the Hazelwood One Canoe Two Collection.

I was able to create 6 layouts with the kit. I’m sure I can still create at least three more. There were so many fun papers and embellishments included in the kit.

For my first layout, I used the exclusive cut files available to Kit Subscribers. There is a Video Tutorial on my channel for this layout, Click here to watch it.

My second layout was a lot of fun to create. I used some mixed media, which is something I love to incorporate in my layouts. I love the way this one turned out. There is also a Video Tutorial on my channel for this one. Click here to watch.

I had this adorable picture of my nephew to scrap. I pulled all of the Blues and greens in the kit and created this layout. I also followed the exclusive sketch available to Kit Subscribers. To watch my Video Tutorial for this one, click here.

One of my favorite things to do is fussy cut. Any time I have beautiful florals or small images on a patterned paper, I love to cut them out and create my own design with them. These butterflies and florals from the Hazelwood Patterned Papers were perfect  for this picture of my cat, Pyramid in our yard. There is a video for this one as well. Click here to watch.

I fell in love with this colorful patterned paper from the Hazelwood Collection. I love it paired with the diagonal stripe black and white border. I fussy cut the florals fro one of the patterned papers and the feathers are from the exclusive cut files as well.

Lastly, I had some fun cutting out different size frames and layering them for this layout. It came together very quickly and I love how it turned out.

Shimmerz Paints: Cherish These Moments

 

Hello friends! I have another layout up on the Shimmerz Paints Blog. I had so much fun creating this layout. I used a cut file from The Cut Shoppe which I modified a bit and I used a few chipboard stickers from the new Crate Paper Heart Day Collection. These were the perfect embellishments for this layout. The background paper is from the Crate Paper Snow and Cocoa Collection. It added the perfect background for my layout. I love mixing different collections. Head on over to my blog post to see all the details of the awesome Shimmerz Paints products I used to create this.

Back To Our Roots-Obsessed with Katty & Christy

yfullsizerender

Hello friends! Christy and I are back with another Season of our Obsessed Series. This time around we are Obsessed with The Dear Lizzy Saturday Collection. A lot of collections came out around the same time as this one but Christy and I immediately chose to work with this one. In case you’re not familiar with our Obsessed series, Christy and I choose a collection we both love. We both get as many things from that collection as possible. Every other week we chose 3-4 papers from that collection and a challenge to work with. It’s a lot of fun and a great way to use up the new collection as well as other things from our stash.

This week we chose 4 papers to work with and our challenge was a recipe challenge. The recipe includes: A long tittle, washi tape, 3 wood veneer and 1 frame.

I only had one of the papers in 12×12 size so I used that as my background. For my long tittle I used a cut file from the JustNick Etsy Store called Marquee Alpha and cut out my tittle. I cut it out on White American Crafts Textured Cardstock and backed the letters with navy blue cardstock. I used a black and white stripped washi tape under all of the words.

I also used a cut file from the Silhouette Studio with an airplane and the word vacation on it. SInce the 12×12 patterned paper has diagonal stripes I took advantage of that and placed my tittle at an angle. Eventually I realized that my photo looked better at an angle too. I used a Simple Stories Chipboard frame over the photo and added a few simple layers behind it.

I embellished using pieces from the Dear Lizzy Saturday  ephemera pack, sticker sheet and puffy stickers. I also added my three wood veneer, I decided to go with three airplanes since I am scrapbooking a photo of my mom and my brother at the airport about to head to my country of birth, Cuba. My mom had not returned since we left 27 years ago. It was a very emotional but great trip for her. The vacation cut file needed some color so I used one of my Shimmerz Paints Creameez in the color Lettuce get Together (Remember, if you place any orders at Shimmerz mention my name and you’ll receive a FREE product.)
