My Creative Scrapbook- March 2017

00fullsizerender

Hello friends! I am back to share the layouts I created with the March 2017 Main Kit. This kit featured the Jen Hadfield Simple Life Collection as well as some other fun goodies. This collection was filled with beautiful florals and this kit was so fun to work with.

The first three layouts I created with the kit were all masculine ones. This kit really lent itself to both masculine and feminine color schemes. For my first layout, I followed the exclusive sketch that My Creative Sketches provides each month. They also provide Cut files every month for our kit Subscribers. There is a Video Tutorial on my channel for this one if you’d like to watch.

The second layout was also a masculine one. I played with a little mixed media and a lot of the ephemera.

For the third layout, I wanted to play with the stencil that was included in the kit. I also added the beautiful lace that came in the kit. Even with the lace I kept the color scheme very masculine. These colors and ephemera pieces were the perfect embellishments for this small photo of my father.

By the fourth layout, I was ready to use the beautiful pinks and florals included in this kit. I love the combination of this fun hexagon wood grain and the pink polka dot paper.

Of course I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to fussy cut these beautiful flowers from one of the patterned papers. I also used the stencil and stamp set that was included in the kit to create this fun layout.

This was such a fun kit to work with. I only wish I had more time to create more layouts with it but I will definitely put all of the leftover goodies to good use on future projects.

Hello friends! I am up on the Spiegelmom Scraps Blog  sharing a fun Beach Layout using one of the free cut files available on the website. Sadly, this is my last post on the SMS Blog. I am very sad to go, Jody is amazing and I have so many friends on the team. However I will continue to use the amazing SMS products on my projects. For this layout I used my Shimmerz Paints and a sticker sheet from the Carta Bella  Beach Day Collection.

Mojo Busters: A Scrapbooking Series-Episode 2

Silhouette CameoHello Friends! Welcome back to the second week of Mojo Busters! My Scrappy friends and I have gotten together to create a series which will hopefully provide some inspiration for you when you need it.

This week we are working on Hannah’s challenge. Her challenge is to use a photo as inspiration. In my case, brand new photos, meaning photos recently taken, are my favorite to scrap. Sometimes, I come across an older photo and inspiration strikes. A photo can also inspire you to use things in your stash. Sometimes the colors in a photo can remind us of a specific collection or embellishment we own.

For this challenge I am using a photo of my grandparents. It was taken back in 1956. My mom came across this photo a few weeks ago. My grandparents have both passed and I miss them very much, it only made sense to add photos of them to my albums. I made a copy of the photo, printed it in black and white and got started.

For some reason this photo made me think of of the Love Always collection by Cocoa Vanilla. I used my silhouette cameo to cut out a beautiful heart cut file available  for download from Bea Valint’s Blog. I nestled my photo in between two loops in the heart cut file.

I then created clusters of flowers underneath the photo and the heart. I also incorporated some leaf cut files which I had sitting on my desk. I had cut both the heart and the leaves  on White American Crafts Textured Cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo.

For my tittle, I used some letter wood veneers from my stash and painted them a light grey with some watercolors. I also used the word Love from the Cocoa Vanilla Ephemera Pack.

I love how this turned out. It came together very quickly. The picture really did inspire me. it inspired the feel of my layout as well as the products I used.

I am scrapbooking a photo of my boyfriend and I last winter on a trip we took to Utah with our family. I love this photo, the mountains behind us are beautiful. For my layout today I began with White American Crafts Textured Cardstock as my background. I used another sheet of the to cut out two snowflakes on my Silhouette Cameo. I colored the snowflakes with a combination two of my favorite Shimmerz Mists. I used Heidi Ho Blue and Blue Jeans.

I then added a few layers of patterned paper behind my photo. I used a 6×6 Heidi Swapp Paper Pad. I scattered around sequins from the Classic Cozy sequin mix as well as some Cork Stars which I layered with the silver stars from the Holly Berries sequin mix.

I also used the Aqua Heart Felties above and under my photo. I used American Crafts Silver glitter thickers in the Cecily font to write out my tittle as well as some aqua glitter tape underneath my tittle.
