Hello There | My Creative Scrapbook-June Tutorial






Hello My Creative Scrapbook Fans!  Yvette here, and today I have a fun page I want to share, created with the gorgeous June main kit!  


I started by selecting the patterned papers I wanted to use on my layout (I decided later not to use the blue strip paper;) along with a Die-Cut heart, some white floss for my hand-stitching and a chevron template, created from white cardstock.  


Next, using the chevron template I started tracing the design onto each of the patterned papers and cut them out using a scissors or a craft knife.   
   


Once I had everything arranged as I like it, I then adhere the Die-cuts hearts and all of the chevrons onto a 12x12 white cardstock.  


Instead of filling the entire background with the pattern paper chevrons and hearts.  I decide to add some texture with some hand-stitching. I use a paper piercing tool to piece holes all around the chevron template and added some simple backstitching using white embroidery floss.        




I also use the 1 canoe 2 Twilight stamp set to create a few flowers to place on top the Die-Cut hearts.


Here are a few close-ups... 


Added a few fussy cut butterflies, a cluster of flowers as well as a few vellum die-cut stems around the page.


 I couldn't help myself from adding some more stitching to my layout :))))  I did this by adding the stitching directly to the top of the hearts and the chevrons.     

I hope I inspired you today to create something beautiful using the June main kit!

How Much Is That Doggie In The Window | My Creative Scrapbook





Hi My Scrapping Friends!

I'm back today to share another page created with the gorgeous June Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook!



Here's a look at this month's cut files....


I use both the wreath and bird on my layout and cut them both from white cardstock. Instead of coloring the entire wreath, I use a couple of copic markers and just run it all around the edges of the wreath. Then adhered it down to my background paper with foam dots. I added both pattern paper and hand stitching to the bird cut file and really love the end results, even though it took a while to  all of that stitching:))))


Added my title around the outside of the wreath and adhere in place with some machine stitching.

     

To finish the layout, I arranged a few pieces of embellishments on the page, such as the butterfly and the fish tail tags from the Early Bird Noteworthy collection.

Love | My Creative Scrapbook




Hi My Scrapping Friends!!!


It's reveal day over at  My Creative Scrapbook, and this month's kits are all so gorgeous!!!

Today I have a layout to share with you using the June main kit!  This is such a beautiful kit, fill with lots of Patterned paper from Bo Bunny-Early Bird Collection, 1 canoe 2-stamp sets and wood veneers and so much more. This kit really challenge me and took me out of my comfort zone with the beautiful soft pastel colors but I love the end result I was able to achieve on each of my layouts.



I layered a few pieces of patterned papers behind my photo to create a background for my photos, I also layered a few strips of patterned paper across the page and then added some hand stitching.

      

I created two clusters of embellishments, one on the bottom left hand corner of the photos and the other cluster was added to the top right corner. The clusters includes a few of the Bo Bunny-Early Bird noteworthy die cuts, some fussy cut butterflies as well as a couple of phrase stickers. 


             



On the left hand side of my photos I added the wood veneer word * Hello* which I used as the title of my layout. I love the wood veneer pieces in the Twilight collection from 1 canoe 2, perfect for title and embellishing.

Hello | My Creative Scrapbook-May Tutorial





Hello My Creative Scrapbook fans!  Yvette here, and today I'm sharing a layout I create using this month's sketch designed by the talented Laura Whitaker. I love to use sketches as a starting point on most of my pages, it gives me the inspiration I need to start my layouts. 

         

Here's a look at the May sketch...




I start by gathering some of my supplies to create my base for my layout.  Next, using a 1 3/4 circle paper punch I created several circles, I then cut out a few thin strips of pattern paper which I use to attach my circles to.       
       

I adhere all of the circles to the thin strips of patterned paper using a staple-as shown below.


Once my background was finish, I started working on adding some layers of patterned paper behind my photo. I also added some foam tape between the layers to create lots of dimension





At this point, I started adding my embellishments using the sketch as my guide.

   
On the right side of the photo I created a cluster of embellishments by layering together some of the chipboard accents from the Spring Market collection, a couple of paper shapes flowers, as well as a few cut file butterflies which was added all along the right side of the photo and also along the top.     


I combined one of the chipboard phrases from the collection, with a cardstock sticker to create my title. I also added a chipboard tag underneath the title and another cut file butterfly. 


Included in this month's main kit was a beautiful strip of burlap, I decided to add it along the bottom of my page, I love the added interest and texture this create on my layout.  

I finished the layout off with a few enamel dots and added some of Maggie Holmes vintage buttons to the top of the paper flowers.

I hope you felt inspired today and if you're not a subscriber yet, give it a try. The kits are all so beautiful and you will not regret it!!!!

Happy Little Moments | My Creative Scrapbook





Hi My Scrapping Friends!

Today I'm back to share another layout with you using the beautiful May Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook.  The beautiful florals and colors in the Spring Market collection were perfect to document these photos of Max having a great time playing in the dirt! 

I started with a few layers of patterned paper and then fussy cut the beautiful floral window box cluster. I added the window box cluster to the top of my page as well as a paper flower from Bazzill Basics, my title and few chipboard words.


A butterfly stencil was use to add a bit more interest and texture to the background paper.


I created a smaller cluster in the bottom left hand corner using a couple of clipboard stickers and a few fussy cut flowers. 


Added a piece of the burlap strip including in this month's main kit to right side of the page.

I finished the layout off with some black ink splatters, a few enamel dots and my journaling.

I hope you felt inspired today and if you're not a subscriber yet, give it a try. The kits are all so beautiful and you will not regret it!!!!

Happy Stuff | My Creative Scrapbook





Hi My Scrapping Friends! 

Today I'm here to share one of my layout created with the May main kit from My Creative Scrapbook, along with this month's free cut files!  This kit features the beautiful, Spring Market collection by Carta Bella, and I couldn't resist documenting a photo of me celebrating my birthday!


Here's this month's cut file...


I decided to use three of the potted plants on my page and then combining both patterned paper and vellum to back each of the cut files. I love how the vellum create a soft and dreamy look to my layout.  I adhered the cut files using foam tape to give it some dimension and then added a few stickers and a chipboard accent from the Spring Market collection under and to the top of the cut files.





I use a couple of die-cuts to create a few layers using the gorgeous Spring Market patterned paper as well as some solid cardstock.

I created a base with a die-cut and added the happiness blooms from within chipboard phrases on top.  

     
 Added my title to the top right hand corner of my photo, as well as a couple of stickers.

I hope you felt inspired today and if you're not a subscriber yet, give it a try. The kits are all so beautiful and you will not regret it!!!!
