I’m up today with another layout for Scrapbook Challenges. Today I am using a sketch, but as always putting my spin on it. I dug through my old Studio Calico kits and put bits and pieces from several older kits (all from 2014) together.
Hey Scrappy Friends! I’m back here today with a layout created from the Felicity Jane Summer kit. I’ve almost killed this one!
They layout I created today was also used as a short tutorial over at ScraPerfect for my design team spot. I used The Best Glue Ever and some foam to add dimension to my layout replacing the expensive foam tape I used to use. Can you see the shadow under the corner of my photo?
I usually start my scrapping with a sketch, but this one I didn’t. I started with what I had left from the kit. The yellow strips are a branding pieces, and the grid is the washi I received in the kit. This has to be my favorite washi ever, and I think I’ve used it in every layout I created from this kit.
After I did the main part of the page the upper left felt quite empty, and honestly look odd. To combat that I created a cluster using the washi, some of the kit embellishments and some of my homemade enamel dots.
I have also taken to make my splatters with my water brush and inexpensive watercolor set. I’ve found that I get better control with the water brush and I can make my color as vibrant or muted by the amount of water I add. I’m going to try the brush with my color shine next.
Okay…I think that’s it for now…back to creating. Until next time…stay crafty!
Hey Scrappy Friends! I’m back today with a layout I completed at the crop I went to a week or so ago using the sketch and color challenge from CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration.
We needed to use the colors carnation, page sage, sage, white and light yellow. The colors fit perfectly with my Felicity Jane Caroline kit that I was trying to use up. Most of the colors are easy to see, but the light sage is what is backing my photo.
I also altered the sketch to use just the one large photo rather than two small ones. I swapped the banner for a just a large solid piece, but still kept the embellishments trailing from one side of the photo to another. I filled in the trailing embellishments with Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Black Velvet. I felt like it gave it just the right amount of messy.
Well…I think that’s it on this one. I have a few more layouts from this kit to share as I killed it so until next time…stay crafty!
So I’m sharing a layout with you today for Scrapbook Challenges. This was a bit of a challenge for me…not because of the sketch, but because of the photos. The photos are a memory I wanted to scrap, but weren’t overly colorful or exciting. Our son was always a bad sleeper, but when we moved him to his toddler bed he slept so much better. He loved laying in it “reading” (bottom photo) and even tried to make the bed everyday (top photo). See why I wanted to scrap them!?
To jazz the page up I used some modeling paste mixed with Tim Holtz distress paint through one of his stencils. The paper layers are all from a DCWV stack. I really like the stack, but don’t like that their papers don’t have any matching embellishments. To rectify this I used some star dies and matching paper. Using some various size pop dots they look really cool.
The tags at the top, along with the circle at the side are from the Scraptastic subscribers print and cuts. This is the first time I’ve used that feature on my Silhouette and it was rather fun.
So what do you think of my creative embellishments?
I am determined to get a bunch of those papers used this year. In fact, I’d like to get enough of them used to consider all my SC items used up. This was my first kit club, and honestly the one I regret signing up for.
