MY Creative Scrapbook-October Projects

Here's this months projects, using the October Main Kit!

 A quick summary of the products found in this month's main kit.....patterned paper from Pink Paislee 'Truly Grateful' collection...this collection is absolutely stunning, with such a beautiful range of colors and designs (great for fussy cutting) it's sure to be a favorite!  Also included in the main kit, 'Truly Grateful' cardstock stickers with matte copper foil accents, both the floral and matted copper foil accents ephemera packs, the puffy phrase and accent stickers and a stencil. 

Here's my projects and a few close-ups...

I used white cardstock to cut the Leaf Heart cut file three times and then glued them together, I love the added dimension and shadow this create on my page. I used the patterned paper 8 with it's beautiful rainbow of colors to back the leaves. The beautiful pink brushstroke pattern paper 15 were perfect to use as my background, also some hand stitching was added to create the other half of the heart.

Add a couple layers of patterned paper and a tag behind the photo. 

Fussy cut leaves and butterflies were added to the floral die cuts to create two clusters.  I also used foam tape to add some dimension and bent and folder the edges a bit.        

One of the puffy sticker and a die cut was used to create a title for my page.


Autumn cut file...

  I used the Autumn cut file to create a large title of my page. Cut it from some white cardstock and back it with paper 19.

To the bottom half of my layout, I added the colorful plaid pattern paper 2 and cut it on an angle. 

Place my photos overlapping each other with a few layers of patterned paper from the Truly Grateful collection and then I began adding my embellishments. 


I started by using the stencil from this months main kit and some charcoal ink to create my background.

 The beautiful paper 8 were cut into four triangles, added some machine stitching down the middle and the edges were them distressed.

I layered a few different pieces of distress patterned papers from the Truly Grateful collection, going both horizontally and vertically and then I adhered my photo in place with some foam tape.       

Next, using the beautiful 'Truly Grateful' die cuts and stickers found in the main kit to create a couple of clusters on my page.   


For this page, the beautiful 'Truly Grateful' pattern papers, die cuts and stickers were used to add layers...both behind and on the sides of my photos.         

Ink splatters added to some white cardstock to match the colors from the leaves in paper 23.

Puffy phrase thicker for my title.

Tell the Story / My Creative Scrapbook-September Tutorial

Hi My Creative Scrapbook Friends! Today, I am sharing two layouts with you using the September sketch.  I absolutely love working with sketches, it really helps in reducing my time spent planning out my placement. All I have to do is pick out my photo/photos, pattern papers, and embellishments and then decide if I'm going to use the sketch as is or take it in a different direction. 

For my first layout, I follow the sketch precisely, this is the fastest and easiest way to make a scrapbook layout.

Here's the September sketch! 

Gather my supplies....

I started my layout off by trimming down my white cardstock background and matting it on the Queen Bee patterned paper from the Wildflower and Honey collection. 

I then matted my photos with the reverse side of the Happy Spirit patterned paper and added some machine stitching around the perimeter to give it some additional texture and interest. 


Next, I added a strip of the Greenery patterned paper (reverse side) down the left hand side of the page and folded back the right hand corner of the white cardstock, so I can add a few layers of die cut pieces from the Ephemera pack.       

Add my matted photos.

I used stickers, die-cuts and chipboard from the Wildflower and Honey collection to embellish my layout by simply grouping them into clusters.  

Here's my second layout using the September sketch.

For this page I went in a totally different direction, by simply, using one photo and adding fussy cut flowers with a few embellishments in place of the patterned paper strip.  

I used the beautiful coral watercolor patterned paper for my background and arranged the fussy cut flowers by keeping them mainly to the center of the page.      

I love the stitching around the photos found on the sketch, so I recreate this by using a black pen to draw a frame around the outside of the photo!   

Start embellishing....

Sketches are packed with tons of inspiration and there are many ways to interpret them, so go ahead, have some fun and remember to share your projects with us on FB at My Creative Scrapbook Inspiration Center
