Best Ever | My Creative Scrapbook - November Tutorial





Hi My Creative Scrapbook friends! I'm back today with a Pinterest inspired project using this month's Main Kit 




I love the overall cool reco design and decided to use it as an inspiration to design my page.      




With all the gorgeous pattern paper found in the 'Along the Way' collection, it was very difficult to select which ones I wanted to use for my circles. I decided to go with one floral and two of the polkadots papers as well as a solid blue cardstock.
        

Next, I added some paint splatters to my background by select a few different Dylusions Ink Spray to match the colors in the floral pattern paper and applied with a small paint brush.



I arranged the circles along the right hand side of the page starting at top and working my way down to the bottom.


Keeping with the design, I added a couple of black cardstock strips down the center of my circles and love the extra detail this create.

 
   
Now it was time to start adding my embellishments. First, I matted my photo with one of the pattern paper found in this months main kit and adhered it down with some foam tape. Next, I created a small cluster of embellishments to the bottom left hand corner of the photo that includes a couple of 'Along the Way' Ephemera pieces as well as a die-cut.



Under the top edge of my photo I tucked an icon die-cut and a tag.

     
  I added my title down the left hand side of my page using the beautiful gold foil chipboard stickers also include in this months main kit and finished the layout off with a couple more die-cut pieces.

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!!!!

Artist At Work | Paper House Productions-Glue Dots Adhesives Team-up





Hi Paper House fans! All this week Paper House is teaming up with Glue Dots Adhesives ...for my page I use both the Mini Glue Dots and Permanent Glue Tape.  
    



I started my layout off with a starburst cut file from The Cut Shoppe, the background cut file was cut from white cardstock and then, I used the beautiful prisms pattern paper  from the 'Color Washed' paper pad to back it. The Permanent Glue Tape adhesive from Glue Dots was then use to adhere the cut file and the pattern paper together.


              
I wanted to create a bit more texture to my background and decided to use embroidery floss to create a string art design. The mini glue dots from Glue Dots was great to use as a way of attaching the floss to my cardstock.

          

Next, I created some layers behind my photo using pattern paper from both the 'Little Man' and 'Color Washed' paper pad. The Art Class 3D stickers was use to create a title for my page and also as an embellishment.

To the bottom of my photo, I added a few die-cut stars and use the mini dots to adhered them to my photo. I finished the page off with some ink splatters and really love how this turned out!   



     Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I inspired you to create something beautiful using your Paper House products as well as Glue Dots Adhesives

This month the main kit is featuring the BEAUTIFUL new 'Along The Way' collection from Pebbles...with so many beautiful patterned papers and embellishments to choose from, you're sure to have a marvelous time document those little moments. I decided to document this silly selfie of our family enjoying our new home.

Next, I selected a few phrase pieces from the foil accent Ephemera pack, matted my photo as well as created a fishtail tag/banner from the cute "bird Seed' patterned paper and once I had everything arrange to my liking, I added some hand stitching and glue in place. 


To the banner, I added one of the cut apart journaling card and adhered it down with some foam tape.

Fun with Squares | My Creative Scrapbook - October Tutorial





Hi My Creative Scrapbook Friends! Today I am super excited to share two of my projects I created using squares and the gorgeous October main kit. So are you ready to have some fun with squares!!! 
Okay, let's get started :) 


For my first page, I picked several square punches in different sizes and cut out multiple squares from a variety of patterned papers.


I played around with the squares for a bit, until I found the design I love. I decided to arranged all of the squares down the left hand side and along the bottom of my page to create a large L. I attached them to the background using both glue and foam adhesive.    


Next, I added my photos.


For the title I used a combination of foam letter stickers found in this month's main kit and one of the chipboard stickers from the 'Forever Fall' collection. Just a few embellishments as well as some paint splatter were need to complete this layout. 



Now for my second project.....


For this page a 2x2 inch paper punch was used to create my squares.    


 For my background I chose the 'Be Grateful' (denim look) patterned paper. Next, I drew a 7 1/2 inch circle which act as a guideline for me to follow. I started arranging the squares to slightly overlap one another and then finish off with some machine stitching.        




I created a pretty cluster of embellishments on the bottom right hand corner of the photo.  The cluster includes a few fussy cut flowers, stickers and a couple of buttons.   


I matted my photo with one of the cut apart pieces from the 3x4 Elements patterned paper and on the left side of the photo I added one of the die-cut label found in the Ephemera Bits and Pieces 'Forever Fall' collection.


I added my title using the foil foam letter stickers found in this month's main kit and use a marker to change it from gold to black which worked so much better for my page.


I finished the layout off by adding a bow made from the burlap ribbon also included in this month's main kit and some more white paint splatters.

     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!!!!

Ninja Boy | Paper House Productions





Hi My Scrapping Friends!

This week over at Paper House, the design team will be sharing their Halloween projects...       


I started with a white cardstock background. Next, I created some layers by combining patterned paper from the Wicked Good collection and the Little Man paper pad. To create a bit more interest on my layers I added the Cobwebs acetate paper and adhered it down with some machine stitching. I also decided to add a strip of Trouble is Brewing patterned paper down the left hand side of the page.

As I was looking around for a cut file for my layout, an idea came to mine, if I can add a frame to sit on top of my photo it would allow me to hide some of the kids in the background. The Picture Perfect cut file worked perfectly for this. 


On the left side of the photo, I added a few fussy cut sentiment from the cut apart sheet ( Wicked Good Tag ) as well as some of the Wicked Spooky cardstock stickers


In the bottom right corner of the photo I created a cluster of embellishments that includes a few more Spooky cardstock stickers and a couple of 3D stickers from the Wicked Good collection.  

      
I decided to use another cut file from the Cut Shoppe which had a set of Halloween images and arrange them down the left side of my page. 

I finished the layout off by adding my title and a few more stickers .
