My Creative Scrapbook: February Main Kit

This month I am guest designing at My Creative Scrapbook using February's Main Kit!  I was very honored and excited to ask to guest design! (I have been missing being a part of a kit club since Paper Camellia ended their subscriptions).   
 I was not disappointed by the contents of this month's kit!  The papers and embellishments from We R Memory Keepers and Crate Paper are absolutely gorgeous and fun to create with!  

I made three layouts as well as three cards with the kit...honestly I probably could've done more because I had plenty left over!  







Be sure to check out the many kits My Creative Scrapbook offers as well as inspiration from the design team!

The Cut Shoppe: Love This

Today on The Cut Shoppe blog I have a layout using the new Feel The Love cut file! I instantly fell in love with this pie chart shape and couldn't wait to use it! I used white cardstock for the cut file and adhered it to pink ombre print from Crate Paper's Hello Love.




I thought using a black title would pop against the pinks and blues of the collection I used. For my title, I used the "love this" from the Love Letters cut file. 


I adhered different patterns into each pie section. For this piece, I added my typed journaling strips. 


Thank you for stopping by! Be sure to check out these files along with much more at The Cut Shoppe!

Clear Scraps: Mini Mixable Dainty Album

Happy Wednesday! Today I'm sharing a cute mini I created for Clear Scraps!  Their Mixable albums are so adorable and fun to use to document an event or favorite photos.  I used the Mini Mixable Dainty Album with Fancy Pants Designs' Happy Place!  The album is only 3.5x5 and perfect for wallet or Instax sized photos! 



The cover is acrylic and I covered with patterned paper as well as a chipboard frame from Crate Paper. My title is one of the Fancy Pants' epoxy words along coordinating buttons.  


My daughter and her friend did an impromptu photo shoot for me and they were so cute together. So, I wanted to create a little keepsake album for Hailey.  Working on a smaller scale is challenging but fun and allows you to use some of your little embellishments.  


I utilized my border and small pennant punches from Fiskars to layer different patterns under my photos.  I think it gives the pages a lot of color!



Thank you for looking!  Check out the Clear Scraps shop to see the three other Dainty Mixables!

Simple Stories: Let It Snow

Hello friends! I cannot believe its February already!  Time flies and that means we are closer to spring! Ha ha...I am NOT a fan of cold or snow. Well, except to scrap cute photos of my nephew. My sister took this in November when we had our first snow storm (and about only one this winter!).


Today I'm sharing one of the layouts I submitted for the Simple Stories design team. I used the Snow Patrol collection kit which has the most beautiful colors! I love the wood background print of Snuggle Up as well as the splatters of snowflakes on Let It Snow.  


The collection comes with a 12x12 sheet of coordinating cardstock stickers. I used this cute sentiment as my title.  

I cut snowflakes from silver POW paper and white cardstock on my Sihouette and layered around my photo.  I also added a few wooden veneer snowflakes from Studio Calico and enamel dots by Echo Park. 



Thanks for stopping by tonight!  Do you like to scrap winter photos?

The Cut Shoppe: Love


Today on The Cut Shoppe blog, I have a layout using some of the fun new cut files!  I fell in love with the 12x12 X to the O background cut file!  I used an ombre pattern from Bella Blvd's Valentina collection. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out but I love how it looks!  


I used the Kitchy Cursive Alphabet Cut File for my title as well as added coordinating stickers and sequins.  




A close up of the ombre pattern with the cut file!  


I have a pretty large stash of sequins from my Teresa Collins Designs collections and I love adding them to layouts!  I also used a cut out wood veneer heart from Freckled Fawn! 

Showing more of the coordinating stickers from Valentina....for more shine, I used a gold photo clip by Studio Calico. 

Thank you for stopping by tonight!  Check out all of the fun files at The Cut Shoppe on Etsy!  Have a wonderful night!

Clear Scraps: Woof! Mixable Album

Happy Monday! Today on the Clear Scraps blog I have a mini album using the new 
Woof Mixable Album which is perfect for photos of your favorite canine!  I love our little pug, Max and he is the star of my album!  I used Echo Park Paper's Bark collection to decorate this cute mini. 


The first page is an acrylic word which I colored with red alcohol ink and lined with white paint.  

The next page is a chipboard shaped bone with fits a wallet sized photo perfectly.  I covered the page with patterned paper. 

On the backside of the page, I added a spot for journaling. I created a pockket out of patterned paper as well as added a cute coordinating sticker on top.  

I used a kraft tag to type up some info about our sweet puggie and added ribbon from May Arts. 

Next up is an acrylic page shaped as a fire hydrant!  I again used red alcohol ink to color the page and then embellished.  


I covered this heart shaped chipboard page in paw print patterned paper. I used white acrylic paint to line the edges after using a sanding tool to smooth any excess paper.  



The last page is an acrylic shaped dog house with a paw print cut out of the middle.  So cute!  


Thank you for stopping by!  I hope you'll check out all of the new product at the Clear Scraps shop!  
Have a great night!
