My Creative Scrapbook | Happy Lazy Summer Days | July Tutorial





Hi My Creative Scrapbook Fans!  For my tutorial this month, I decided to use a die-cut circle set to create a super awesome background for the upper portion of my layout.


I begin by using my Sizzix Big Shot to die cut several circles in various sizes.  Next, I applied pool mid-tone and soft pool shadow inks to the outer edges of each circles, use a blending tool starting with the lightest to darkest. 



A Soft Yellow shadow ink was applied to the smaller circles.


 Next, I added the splish splash pattern paper to the lower half of the page and once all the circles were positioned as I like them, I added a 2 inch strip of pattern paper across the middle of the layout. 

              
  At this point I trim the excess circles and added some machine stitching around the perimeter.
Next, I layered some of the die-cut frames from the Summer Bucket List ephemera pack underneath my photo and love the added interest this creates.


I created a cluster of embellishments on the bottom right hand corner of the photo that includes one of the Summer Bucket list die cut, a few Summer Days chipboard stickers and a couple of  bits & pieces.   


I used one of the phase as well as the happy banner from the Summer Days cardstock stickers to create my title and later decided the area around the title needed a bit more detail so I added a few more stickers.   

The cloud and sun sticker were a perfect addition to the top left hand side of my photo, along with  some journaling strips. I really love the selection of embellishments and patterned papers in this kit,  it made it so easy to document my summer photos !  


       I  finished my layout off by adding my journaling. 
Thanks for stopping by :) xx

A Camping I Will Go | Creative Scrappers Sketch #308



Hi My Scrapping Friends!

It's my turn to show you what I created using Creative Scrappers July sketch #308! 
Here's the fabulous sketch that Kristine Davidson design.


    Here's my take on this month's sketch...


I used Photoplay-Summer Bucket List collection to created most of this layout featuring a couple of photos of Max's leaving for his first day of Summer camp.


I started by layering my patterned papers using the sketch as my guide, I then decided to add some vellum to the top half of my page and added some machine stitching around the perimeter.

I matted my photos and then tucked a couple of journaling tag underneath the right hand side of my top photo and also placed a few stickers on top. 
  
I then cut out these awesome compasses using a cut file I found at the Silhouette store from some black cardstock and added a button to one and a star sticker to the other.   
   
      
I combined some thickers Alpha, along with some Jillibean Soup label stickers to create my title and couldn't resist adding the log fire and the marshmallows on the stick stickers around my title.


Next, I added a small cluster to the top left hand corner which included a few stickers, some enamels dots and a cork star.  I also tuck a tag underneath the pattern paper and added some words stickers on top.

   I hope I inspired you to created something beautiful!

Chill Have Fun | My Creative Scrapbook-July Main Kit




Hi My Scrapping Friends!

Today I'm sharing a layout I created using the July Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook!
Such a fabulous summer kit!

  
I documented a couple of photos of Max enjoying Ice-Cream time on vacation and some days before the Ice-Cream shop would open you can find both my husband and son already on line :))) 

          I added a strip of the Hello Sunshine across the middle of the layout, then added machine stitching around the layout perimeter and down both edges of the pattern paper strip. 


Next, I splatters some blue paint around the page and really love how this play off the blue from my son's swimsuit. 
 I then decided to go with a diagonal design which created a fun way to use many of the Summer Days bits & pieces and stickers circles. 




       For my title, I used a combination of  Simple Stories-Summer Days sticker, Jillibean Soup Alphas and a die cut from Photoplay-Summer Bucket List collection.

I finished the layout off with a few smaller sticker and my journaling.   

Thanks for stopping by :) xx

Fun In The Sun | My Creative Scrapbook...July Main Kit




Hi My Scrapping Friends!

I'm here today to share my first layout using the fabulous July Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook!

"Lot's of fabulous goodies" from Simple Stories...Summer Days Collection!   



For this page I used the June FREE Summer cut file set. The Summer cut file set were perfect to document this photo taking on a family vacation to Atlantis in the Bahamas.


 I decided to use the palm tree, the sun & clouds image and a couple of the words.  I enlarge the palm tree so I can make it a focal point on my layout and cut it from both patterned paper and brown cardstock, I love the shadowing this creates without adding foam tape.  Next, I cut two of the clouds image from some white cardstock and arrange then on my page.

    
For the bottom of my page I did some paper tearing using a blue to represent water and the other for the sand. 

   
Here you see I created a cluster using a few bits and pieces from the Summer Days collection.

  
I finished off my layout by adding my title using a couple of words from the cut file, along with some alpha stickers. 
Thanks for stopping by:)))) xx

Vroom | Just Nick Studio




Hi My Scrapping Friends!

Today I'm sharing my last design team project for Just Nick Studio, I truly enjoy creating with Nicole's fabulous cut files and wanted to thank her for such an amazing experience!

I created my layout using the Plane,Trains & Automobiles cut file and also the Scribble Circle Background.  





The plane, train and automobiles cut file set is perfect to document your little boy's adventures, I used the car and the word 'VROOM' to document a photo of my son riding his toy quad in the yard.

I used patterned paper and embellishments from Echo Park-Go See Explore collection on this page.   


I first cut the Scribble Circle Background from some white cardstock and instead of backing the cut file with pattern paper I decided to use paint, which I absolutely loved !

    Next, I enlarge the car image and cut it from some pattern paper. I then cut the car image down the middle and place on both side of my photo.          
 
         
The word VROOM in this cut file sets were a perfect title for my layout.  I cut it from both pattern paper and black cardstock and adhere it together by slightly overlapping it, which created a wonderful shadowing effect. Next,  I just added some foam tape underneath to give it some extra dimension.      


I finished the layout off with some stickers, a few small buttons and a mini paper fan.

I hope I inspired you to create something beautiful using Just Nick cut files!

Baby Blue | My Creative Scrapbook...June Main Kit



Hi My Scrapping Friends!!!

Today I'm sharing another layout created for My Creative Scrapbook using the June Main Kit.


I started by using the All Together patterned paper as my background for my layout. I love the way the color just bring out the blue in my son's eyes.  Next, I cut several strips of pattern paper in various widths and lengths and arranged down the page.  I used both glue and machine stitching to adhere them onto my page and then added the twine atop the middle three strip before adding my photos.

Here are some close-ups....


I created my title using the Family & Co collection Alphabet-chipboard stickers and adding one of the heart from the puffy sticker in the middle. 


I added some journaling to my layout...then finished the page off by adding some enamel dots, a few more pieces of chipboard and puffy stickers and a few paint splatters.

I hope I have inspired you to create something beautiful using your kits from My Creative Scrapbook!

Real Life | My Creative Scrapbook - June Main Kit




Hi My Scrapping Friends!

Today I'm back with another layout created for My Creative Scrapbook using the gorgeous June main kit! 


I documented a photo of my son from a 2011, Bermuda vacation....we had such a blast on a day trip we took to Horseshoe Bay Beach and just seeing that smile on Max's face as we walk onto the beach was priceless!

I used the patterned paper Good times and All together to create my diagonal design. Next, still following the diagonal line, I added a few thin strips of pattern paper to the lower half of my page and machine stitched down the middle for some added texture.  


I added a few layers of pattern paper behind my photo, tucked a small tag and sticker to the top left  side of my photo and to the bottom right hand corner I created a small cluster that includes some of the Family and Co....chipboard and a puffy sticker.  

        
Here you can see I used a paper punch to create a few die cut stars, tucked a few tag under the thin strips of pattern paper and used one of the phrase from the ephemera pack as my title.


I hope I have inspired you to create something beautiful using your kits from My Creative Scrapbook!

Today | Just Nick Studio



Hi Scrapping Friends!

Today I'm sharing a layout that I created using the Planes, Trains & Automobiles cut file from the Just Nick Studio shop!


The train in the Planes,Trains & Automobiles cut file set were perfect to document this photo of Max's Day Out With Thomas! Max enjoyed meeting Sir Topham Hatt and had a fabulous time  
 being a passenger on Thomas The Train. 

I used the Go See Explore collection from Echo Park for most of this layout with the exception, the base patterned paper is from an older collection A Boy's Life.

        

       

I started by enlarging the train and cutting the image on some pattern paper. Once this was finish I used the offset function in Silhouette to create an outline, which I used as a guideline for my stitching.  Next, I cut the offset image from some pattern paper and adhered to the background. I then hand stitched around the entire train using white embroidery floss.

Here are some close-ups of my page...

      
I drew a few clouds to represent smoke and outline it with a black marker. 


For this page title I chose the Today from the Word 2 cut file, cut it from black cardstock and outline  around the edges with a white marker.

I added a couple of chipboard accents to bottom right hand corner of my photo, along with my title.


I wanted to use some buttons for the train wheels but it just didn't look quite right so I ended up using enamels dot instead.  
I finished my page off by adding some gold stars around the page and my journaling.

Thanks for stopping by :) 

I hope I inspired you to create something beautiful using Just Nick cut files!

My Creative Scrapbook | We Are Family | June Tutorial




Hi My Creative Scrapbook Fans!  Today I have a step-by-step tutorial to share with you using the June Main Kit! I absolutely love the colors and patterns in the Family & Co. collection featured in this kit.


I started my layout off by drawing three triangles in multiple sizes onto some white cardstock.    


Next, I use a craft knife to cut the insides of the triangles out to create the design below.       


I then selected my patterned papers, cutting both at 9 x 4 inches and adhering in a staggering design onto my 12x12 base.     

 

Next, I added the larger triangle and placing it horizontally across the patterned papers.  


 I placed the smaller triangle horizontally with the larger one and the other I placed vertically.


Next, I created a 3/4" circle with some machine stitching and then adhered my photos with some foam tape underneath to give it some extra dimension.  To the far left side of my layout I added a thin strip of the Love at Home patterned paper-reverse side.


Next, embellishments. I added a few of the chipboard and puffy stickers atop the stitch 3/4" circle and place some label stickers from Jillibean Soup here and there for extra interest. 

  
I used one of the phrase from the die cut ephemera pack, along with a puffy heart sticker to created my title.     


A few paint splashes and this page was finish!

          I hope I inspired you to create something beautiful ...
