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.

This was a fun kit to create with. I hope you’ll check out My Creative Scrapbook. They have four different monthly kits available.

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.

Shimmerz Paints: Taming the Terrible Twos

Hello friends! I am up on the Shimmerz Paints Blog sharing this layout. I love the new Paste-eez dimensional paints. They are so fun to work with. Today I am scrapbooking about my niece. She is currently two and we all know what that means, yup, never ending energy. She is absolutely adorable running around but when it’s time to calm down for a little bit technology always does the trick. I even managed to get non blurry photos. LOL.

Smile-Spiegelmom Scraps

Hello friends! Welcome back. The Spiegelmom Scraps Sparklers have teamed up with Accent Scrapbooking  and we have a fun product swap, Accent Scrapbooking is a fun flair badge shop. Today we are working with some awesome flair badges. You should have arrived here from  Khristina’s  blog.  I loved her layout. Be sure to hop along and comment for a chance to win an awesome prize.

Here’s the full line up:

Katty Miranda– You are here 🙂

The flair set I am working with has 4 badges in fun bright colors. I knew I wanted to use the flair badges in a different way, I decided to create large flowers and use the flair badges in the center. To create my flowers I used an old flower stencil with my Shimmerz Dazzlerz on some White American Crafts Textured Cardstock. I chose colors that matched the flair badges, I used  Grapetastic, Pucker up Pink, Gummy Berry Blue,  and Lemon Drop Yellow. I then used a baby wipe and blotted the texture paste to create some more texture. Taking advantage that the Dazzlers take a while to dry I used them as adhesive for the flair badges and the sequins I used around the edges of the flowers. I used the purple and blue sequins from the Sweet Pea Mix, the yellow ones from the 2 Cool 4 U Mix and the pink flowers from the Pocket full of Posies Mix. I love how they turned out.

Once dry, I cut them out and added a border of patterned paper in coordinating colors. I used papers from the Pink Paislee Take Me Away 6×6 Paper Pad. I used the same papers and punched out small circles, I used those circles around my 3 photos which I had also cut into circles. This make it look like the photos have a flower around them.

I arranged all of my flowers on a 12×12 sheet of White American Crafts Textured Cardstock. I also used the Pink Paislee foam word thickers for my tittle as well as some foam hearts which I scattered around.

I added a strip of a pink Pink Paislee Patterned paper to the right had side of the layout, I also used a Scallop border punch along the edge of the white cardstock. To finish it off I scattered around some of the yellow sequins from the 2 Cool 4 U Mix.

I love the way the layout tuned out. I love how the flair badges look. It turned out pretty simple but I love it.

I began with a Cream and white Patterned paper from Elle’s Studio. I used three photos just as the sketch calls for. I used a sequence of photos of my two boys enjoying fake snowfall at a local mall this past December.

I layered a few different patterned papers from my stash in red and blue shades. I used the Free Snowflake Cutfile from Spiegelmom Scraps and cut out a bunch of snowflakes on White American Crafts Textured Cardstock. I layered the beautiful flair badges over the bigger snowflakes and sequins from the Classic Cozy Mix over the smaller ones.

I created a long tittle using a mix of Amy Tangerine, Heidi Swapp and Fitzgerald Thickers. I added a few small embellishments around my tittle and a teal polka dot washi tape as finishing touches.
