Paper Camellia Main Kit Layout

Hey everyone...today I have a layout up on the Paper Camellia blog using this month's Main Kit.  I am just loving the beautiful colors that Ria has chosen!  The pinks and blues are lovely along with the gold accents!  September's kit includes papers from October Afternoon, Crate Paper, and Shimelle. 
 
 
 
I used one of the cute die cuts from the Shimelle line along with a label sticker from October Afternoon's Public Library.  Underneath are two of the new My Mind's Eye's "Just Sayin" enamel shapes...love the glitter gold!

 
Here, I used another of the Shimelle die cuts followed by a label sticker.  I added my niece's initial using the Shimelle Fitzgerald gold glitter Thickers! I love these!  


For accent, I used some spray ink splatters mixed in with more of the lovely MME enamel shapes!


 
In the Main Kit, you receive three of these Crate Paper Notes and Things Chipboard Frames. I adhere patterned paper from OA's Public Library Journal Cards and added a die cut.

Hello and happy Friday! I can't believe September is here already!  I have another Paper Secrets sketch reveal to share with you today!  This sketch is brought to you by DT member, Lanette Erickson. And the challenge word is LABOR.


 
 And here is my layout! I used Simple Stories' DIY from the Paper Secrets' shop. For my challenge word, I used L: letters A: arrows B: buttons O: orange R: ribbon.
 
 
 My letters are American Craft Thickers (pink) and Heidi Swapp (turquoise).  I added some of the chipboard shapes that coordinate with DIY, as well. 
 
 
I used some buttons from my stash, as well as added a piece of flair from The Paper Bakery. 
 
Some white dotted ribbon from May Arts....I have a TON of it! I bought a lot when I was working at a local store a few years ago. 
 
Love these cute little chipboard shapes! And the colors are so bright!

Teresa Collins Designs: Candy Cane Lane Burlap Canvas

Hello everyone...today I'm up on the Teresa Collins Design Team Blog with an altered burlap canvas I created using the Candy Cane Lane collection.  I love the traditional red and greens in this line, as well as how Teresa adds gray and black! 
 
I first used Teresa's Basically Essential Modeling Paste and the 12x12 Scallop Stencil to create a background on my canvas. After allowing it to dry, I was ready to start embellishing!
 
 
I used gold glitter spray paint to color one of the Wooden Ornaments. I then layered pieces from the Ephemera Pack underneath, as well as hand punched circles from the different patterned papers. 


Along with the Ephemera pieces, I added Chipboard Buttons and Enamel Dots from Candy Cane Lane. 
 
Do you spy the snowflake enamel shape? Love these! 

 
My title is cut from gold foil paper (I found it at Michaels) and my Silhouette Machine (cut file  #52200). 
 
Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to check out this and the rest of Teresa's releases by clicking here! What is your favorite?? For me, its tough to choose! 
Have a good day!

Clear Scraps + Imagine Crafts!

Hello!  This week Clear Scraps and Imagine Crafts are having a blog blast!
      I used Clear Scraps Build It Your Way Large Acrylic Binder with the Round Tab Acrylic Pages.  We are celebrating friendship this month at Clear Scraps!  I put together a book documenting photos spanning almost 30 years of my best friends from school. 
 















I cut a 6x6 piece of acrylic from one of the 12 inch sheets to create a mini page so I could add extra photos.   I used my Staz On Jet Black ink to stamp my sentiment in the lower right corner.  I love using Staz On with Clear Scrap!  Staz On is the ONLY ink that you can trust that you will get a clean stamped image. No smudging!  And it dries quickly!






 
 
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out both the Clear Scraps' and Imagine Crafts' blogs...there are lots of giveaways this week!

Teresa Collins Designs' Candy Cane Lane

 
Hi friends!  Today is a special day in our house!  Eleven years ago today we were blessed with a beautiful daughter!  We celebrate her and the young lady she is becoming! 
 
I'm sharing a layout I created for Teresa Collins Designs using her Candy Cane Lane collection! I love the classic prints and colors of this line, as well as the fact you can add in colors to accent! I chose to use gold foil paper that I found at a local craft store. 
 
 
I cut a snowflake out on my Silhouette with the gold foil paper to layer under my photo.  I then added a few pieces of die cuts from the Ephemera pack as well as a decorative brad. 
 


I also cut my title on my Silhouette with the gold foil paper.  I added more die cut snowflakes, as well as the cute little snowflake stamp from the Clear Stamp set. 
 





 
I love that Teresa includes Photo Overlays in her collections! I love to use them under my pictures as well! This 4x6 overlay has cute little snowflakes!  Perfect for my page!
 



 
 
Thanks for stopping by today!   Check out Teresa's new releases here!   And don't forget her Studio Gold line will be available September 1st!  I cannot wait to get a hold of all of her new products!! 
And for Midwest scrappers, Teresa will be teaching at Hannah's in Antioch, IL September 19th and 20th!

Clear Scraps Cassy 8x8 Mixable Album: Hello 40

Hi friends...Happy Monday to you.  I hope your week starts out well!  I recently had a mini album on the Clear Scraps blog using the Cassy 8x8 Mixable Album.  We are featuring parties at Clear Scraps this month, so I decided to document the surprise party my husband threw for my 40th.  I used
Teresa Collins Designs' Something Wonderful collection.



On my cover page, I used a wooden veneer title from Freckled Fawn and chipboard numbers from Something Wonderful. 





 
A cute banner I created with the stickers, brads, and enamel dots from Something Wonderful.


 
I added in a manila tag as an extra page; something I like to do with many of my mini books.




To color the bottom of my tag, I used my 6 inch Wood Grain Mascil and spray ink.  I love the effect it gives!








Thanks for looking today...check out the Clear Scraps shop to see the MANY choices of albums!  While you are there, look at the new Mascils too! 
Have a great day!
