“Dream” Layout with Rae

Happy Saturday, crafty friends!

Today I’m sharing the last layout I made with the beautiful July scrapbooking kit. I’ve had my eye on this picture I found on Pinterest for a layout for quite some time, and this kit was perfect to showcase it with the Violet Silence papers by Lemoncraft!

I started the layout by ripping the purple sheet, and the adding it to the ivory sheet of paper. I created some background texture with a script stamp and purple pigment ink, and then a music notes stencil and clear texture paste.

I cut a piece of chipboard into a circle frame, and then added some of the Nuvo drops to the circle in a thick layer, then added some white embossing powder for a textured, distressed look.

I was out of the purple flowers from the kit so I added some form my stash to coordinate with the ivory 49 and Market flowers. I tore apart some of the ivory flowers to use the inside layers for some smaller sizes.

 

I decided to cut up the gold trim from the kit. I cut the small flowers away from the scallop part of the trim- I used that as a layer under my photo mat. I placed the smaller flowers to peek out from under the flower clusters, and also to add to the proximity of the title from my stash,

“#beautiful” Layout with Rae using for the Mood Board Challenge

Hello, and Happy Wednesday!

Today I’m sharing a layout I made for the Mood Board Challenge using the July kit.

Here’s the mood board:

I chose to use some of the Lemoncraft Violet Silence paper that had pink flowers on it to coordinate with the hot pink Kaisercraft flowers. I was inspired by the polka dot fabric in one of the mood board pictures, so I repeated the use of circles by adding a circle stencil, a doily, a piece of Lemoncraft flair, polka dot paper, and adding dots to the chipboard frame (from my stash) and some purple and green berries (also from my stash).

I tore apart the 49 and Market ivory flowers and added the Kaisercraft hot pink flowers to make those pink flowers POP. I also added some pink chalk ink to the ivory flowers.

This closeup below gives a good view of the paper layers, and shows how the flower cluster and leaves, as well as the pink lace chipboard are a contrast to the softness of the hues of the papers.

The frame under the picture is a Dusty Attic chipboard frame from my stash, but really, any oval frame would do the job here. I painted it white, added some purple pigment ink for a distressed look to blend with the papers, and added accents with the Nuvo drops from the kit. If you haven’t had the chance to try Nuvo drops, you NEED to! They are self-leveling, so they will dry dimensional, but not uneven.

 

Thanks for stopping by the blog today! I hope you get a chance to join us for the mood board challenge! You do not have to be a subscriber to join the fun, but if you wanted to use the July kit, there are still some available HERE.

June Sketch Challenge Winner, and a layout with Rae

Happy Saturday!

Today I have a couple of things to share with you. First is the winner of our June sketch challenge: Donna Sergent! Take a look at this beautiful layout:

We LOVED the vintage vibe Donna created with this layout of a sweet young couple. The treatment of the chipboard frame looks amazing! The bits of ephemera and that cameo are perfect, not to mention those butterflies! Congrats, Donna! Your prize will be shipped with your next kit!

And, thanks to all who played along! We were blown away at all the gorgeous entries! Be sure to join us for our July mood board challenge!

I’m also sharing my first project made with the July scrapbooking kit, featuring the lovely Lemoncraft Violet Silence paper collection. For this layout I used the June Sketchabilities sketch.

I started out by cutting up the “wood” panel background paper in strips along wood lines, then I used a paper distress and added some brown distress ink along the edges for added dimension.

For my layers, I added the doilies from the kit, some paper layers, and added the Prima Marketing resin frame to the picture. I topped of the layers with butterflies I cut from one of the papers, the cream and purple 49 and Market flowers, as well as some small coordinating flowers from my stash. I also added the title “Shine” from my stash as well, which is a Dusty Attic piece that treated by adding some wax paste.

I added some stenciling of bricks to peek out from under the design. I used white crackle paste, then lightly used a foam applicator with brown distress ink over the crackles after the paste was dry.

I treated the Dusty Attic chipboard scroll by covering it with a thick layer of the Nuvo drops from the kit. While wet, I added a combination of gold and black embossing powder while the Nuvo drops will till wet, then used a heat tool to dry it- I let it bubble up to create this distressed old metal look.

I added the leaves under the flower cluster before gluing on the chipboard to the paper to create more dimension.

For this bottom cluster I added the smaller Prima resin frame, a tiny purple flower from my stash, and a Lemoncraft flair button to repeat some of the features from the main cluster on the layout.
