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.

You are Here Layout- Stash Bash YouTube Hop

img_4710

Hello everyone! I was invited by my friend Christine to join her and a few other ladies in a fun monthly YouTube Hop. Each month we plan to focus on a specific item in our stash. The idea is to use up as much of that item as we can and hopefully make a dent in our stash. This month our focus is on Stickers.

We crafters and scrapbookers tend to collect a lot of things, we love to buy what is new and trending hence leaving the “old” behind. After years of crafting, you end up with this huge stash. This challenge is a great opportunity to use up some of those items.

I decided to use the Simple Stories You are Here Collection. I have already used a ton of this collection.  However I had a lot of the stickers that I had not used. I pulled out the 12×12 Sticker sheet and the 12×12 Alpha Sticker sheet. My goal was to use as much as I could. This collection has been perfect for scrapbooking my Hawaii trip from 2016. Today I am scrapping a photo from that trip. It is a photo of me and my two boys in front of Waimea Canyon in Kauai, Hawaii. Kauai was one of the stops our cruise ship made. I have to say it was one of my favorites. We rented a car and drove out to Waimea Canyon. It was absolutely beautiful. We had a lovely day. I only wish we could have spent a few more hours there exploring.

I used a sketch I found on Pinterest by Kristine Davidson as a starting off point.

I used several patterned papers, all from the You are Here Collection, I also used the 3×4 & 4×6 cut apart sheets as layers and to punch out the hexagon shapes. I added some brown cardstock behind all of the hexagons.

I embellished using only stickers. I was so happy to have used up the majority of the stickers on the 12×12 sticker sheet. I added dimension to some of the stickers by adding fun foam to the back.

Even my tittle is from the sticker sheet. I added fun foam behind that as well. I added some enamel dots in coordinating colors as a finishing touch.

I absolutely love how this turned out! I was so happy with the amount of stickers I was able to use up. I can’t wait for next month’s challenge.
