And So It Begins

Hello there! 
Today I'm sharing a layout I made with the June Scraptastic Club kit and add on, The Best Day of My Life.
I went ahead and pulled out papers and embellishments from the kits that went along with my photo. 
I decided to cut out a bunch of little strips and this is what I got!

I love how all the colors go together but this is a great way to add a lot of pattern without making the page look so busy. Not to mention it's always a great way to use up scraps you might have laying around!

I stitched on each strip along with a row of wood grain sequins that came in an older kit. I stamped the date at the bottom using the Prima ink you receive as an extra goody!

I used a sticker for my title and took one of the paper bows off the clothes pin. I also added a couple of embellishments to the paper strips and the number 26 for my age. Even though this isn't a Birthday layout I took the photo on my Birthday and I captured that using the glitter stickers and stamping the date :)

It was really hard to not go with this kit for July, it's totally my style and color scheme and I've been obsessed with arrows for who knows how long.... But I wanted to challenge myself and go with this next one..

Here is a peek at the Summer Nights kits!

I normally don't go for the really bright colors but I seriously love this kit! The wood grain with the rainbow elements is pretty darn awesome and I can not wait to get my hands on these kits!!

Which one is your favorite?

Hello Let's Chat

Hi everyone! Sharing a quick post today with another cute card using the May Scraptastic Club kits!
I seriously love all the little bits that were included in the May kits!
And here it is!
IMG_0521
Here is a good example of making the best out of your mistakes when it comes to crafting. The white Hello diecut ended up ripping off the speech bubble card I have in the background so I went ahead and just cut the other side off and I started the card from there. I thought it would be fun to but the Hello on some pop dots and layer behind it. I added some more diecuts and enamel dots to make a quick yet cute card!

When you make mistakes while crafting do you start all over again or work with the mistake to make it look like nothing happened? :)

Every Picture Records A Little Story

Helllo there!
I have a simple layout to share using a die cut as my title and main embellment!
When I got the email for the May Scraptastic Club kits I already fell in love with this die cut!!
Take a look!
IMG_9948-001
Love love love!!
Since I am still obsessed with using a white background for my page, I needed to add something to make my title pop. I took the Heidi Swapp Color Shine in the color Bronzer and sprayed twice fairly close to the page. I love how the gold shine stayed in the center and the brown mist came out evenly!

I added a wood veneer heart from an older kit under the title, put some patterned paper behind my photo, a tag and layered on some die cuts from the kits. Above my photo I added a little heart die cut I had in my stash!
Hope this inspires you to use a die cut for a title!!
Happy Scrapping!

Hello Beautiful

Hi!
Sharing another layout I made using the May Scraptastic Club kit, The Story I Heard.
IMG_9956-001
I splattered on some Heidi Swapp Color Shine and layered a pretty paper behind my photo. I added some die cuts and little doilies I've had laying around. I took a white polaroid die cut and stuck that next to my photo for a little white on white detail, put a mint colored frame I made in the middle of that and added a little heart onto some pop dots for added dimension. Then I cut a couple of images from a patterned paper!
IMG_9959-001
I added some subtle stamping with the Daylight stamp set (adorable little phrases!!) and stuck the date underneath!
IMG_9958-001
I need to make more of these frames! I love the way it turned out :)
Thanks for stopping by!

Some cute cards!

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing a couple of cards I made using the May Scraptastic Club kit, The Story I Heard. 
So I have to admit I'm not the best at card making for some reason... before I started doing 12x12 pages that's all I ever did, but I think I've lost touch over the years. 
This kit and add-on came with TONS of die cuts that are perfect for cards so I gave it a go!
Here is what I came up with!
IMG_9986-001
I took some tags from my stash and started adding some die cuts from there. I love all the little sayings from these packs! I just added some bakers twine to the top of the tags and some resin flowers I made to add a little more dimension.

IMG_9978-001
Overall I am pretty darn happy with the way they turned out! 
I should make it a goal to create at least one card from each kit...maybe ;)
What is your niche? Are you a card maker or do you stick with layouts?
Thanks for stopping by!!
