July “follow along with me” layout

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the July 2020 scrapbook kit. These papers from Scrapboys are amazing. I’ve done a follow along with me layout.

If you haven’t seen the kit, here it is:

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

 

This layout was created with just items from the Scrapbook kit. This is a new thing we created after we’ve had some request for more detailed instructions for the projects. For this layout I had a video to follow along with, but I accidentally deleted it. I will give you the step by steps and list the items used.

This is the second “follow along with me”. DT member Crystal did one with the July mixed media kit, so don’t forget to check that out. Again, this is a new monthly series.

Here is the list of items used from the kit:

  1. Dream Garden sheet #1
  2. Dream Garden sheet #5
  3. 49 & Market stitched frame
  4. Prima Marketing Shabby Chic Treasures
  5. 49 & Market sugar poises
  6. 49 & Market Wildflowers
  7. 49 & Market garden petals
  8. Creative Embellishments flourish
  9. Ranger liquid pearls

Essentials from my stash:

  1. Pink cardstock
  2. Pink chalk ink
  3. White embossing powder
  4. Gesso
  5. Various die cuts

I used sheet 1 as my base and ripped sheet 2 on the diagonal (made sure the wagon wheel was on the side I didn’t use). I inked the edges of all paper with some pink chalk ink, then adhered the ripped sheet to the base.

I then watered down some gesso and whit washed the base sheet to the down the flowers. Once dried, I swiped the page lightly with the pink chalk ink.

I cut a couple of die cuts from pink cardstock. I adhered them behind where my photo was going. Once that was done, I fussy cut the wagon wheel and flower pail from the leftover torn paper.

The wagon wheel was glued down and the pail set to the side for later. I added small foam dots to the stitched frame and stuck it down. Next I added thicker foam tape to the photo and layered it onto pf the frame.

Once picture was down, I embellished the rest of the layout. I used foam tape on the pail and adhered it just below the photo. I added flowers to the bottom using all flowers from the kit. The top spray was created by bunching up flowers from all three packs.

For the chipboard. i cut it into 2 pieces. The I used a combo of white embossing power and the pink liquid pearls. Just randomly place your liquid pearls on the chipboard, then sprinkle with embossing power and heat set.

There you have it. I hope this explanation helps. So sorry about the video (he he).

Don’t forget we have a monthly challenge. Have you joined in on our monthly challenge? Why not, you don’t have to be a subscriber to play along. Our July challenge just started, so there is still plenty of time to join.

Welcoming a new Designer

Hi everyone, Kim here. Join me today in welcoming a new designer to our team. Although you have seen some of her designs, she is officially starting with the July kits. Without further ado, I introduce to you…

Cristina Cunningham

Hi, I’m Cristina. I live in NY and am a mom of two 20-somethings and a new grandma to my sweet
Andrew. I’ve been crafting in one way or another since college, but discovered scrapbooking when my oldest was born and my love for papercrafts grew from there. My style is very shabby and feminine. My favorite projects revolve around memory keeping, but I also enjoy making junk journals, cards and altered projects. In my spare time you can find me at the beach catching a cool sunset or at the opera. I’m a former classical pianist and still enjoy going to a concert whenever I can.

Let’s give Cris a warm welcome. I am sure you will love seeing what she creates using our kits. So make sure you are subscribed to our blog, social media platforms and Youtube channel.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wall hanging using the cards, tags and more kit.

Hey guys, Kim here. Today I have a project I created using the cards, tags and more kit. This is a bright fun kit. If you haven’t seen it, here it is:

This is a great kit to create summer cards for birthdays or graduations. It’s also great for smaller off the page projects. That’s what I did with it. I created this wall hanging.

I had this piece of a embroidery hoop left (the outside ring broke). So I thought, why not put it to good use. I used a sheet of the cardstock from the kit for the base of the project.

How about some close-ups:

I fussy cut one of the sheets of paper from the pad for the background. I adhered it to the cardstock with foam tape to give it some dimension. I also added a die cut doily on top of the fussy cut paper.

I used the yellow flowers from the kit, then added a couple of pink from my stash. I cut a saying from the paper pad and glued it to a frame.

The flowers were arranged around and under the frame. Then I added a few leaves from my stash. The chipboard is from the kit. I just painted it with a bit of gold paint.

This is the finished product. This was a pretty quick project to create. I just need to add a picture hanger on the back.

Thanks for stopping by.

May sketch challenge layout

Hey Guys, Kim here. Today I am sharing a layout created with the May 2020 scrapbook kit. The new papers from Craft O’Clock are amazing. I really love the color story. Another kit I’m really enjoying working with . It is definitely my style.

If you haven’t seen the kit, here it is:

 

Here is the layout I created with it:

This layout is based on the May sketch.

Here is the sketch:

How about some close-ups:

Here I did a bit of stenciling with some black crackle. I added a cardboard pieces from the cardboard ephemera set. I heat embossed the chipboard piece from my stash.  I used some vintage copper embossing powder on it.

The flowers are from from my stash. I like how they add texture to the layout.

Here you can see a close up of the gorgeous chipboard. More flowers from my stash and the black resin piece is from a past kit.

This handsome young man is my nephew, who was just recently taken from us by someone who thought is was ok to rob him just because they wanted what he had.

So to get through my grief, I have been scrapping pictures of him and remembering what an amazing person he was. He had been through so much (health wise)in his 32 years, but he always had a smile on his face. You will see a lot more of him in the future.

Monday’s Mixed Media

Hey everyone, Kim here. I’m serving up some mixed media madness today, working with the March Mixed Media kit.

Here is the Mixed Media kit if you haven’t already seen it (unfortunately it is sold out. Time to subscribe so you don’t miss out:

Here is the project I created with the kit:

 

Here are some close-ups:

 

 

There is no real formula in working with this kit. Once you get your configuration figured out, then it’s just time to dive into the mediums.

The mediums in this kit were so fun to work with. The wax was very smooth and the paints give a beautiful shimmer (photos don’t do it justice). I added a bit of copper crackle paste from my stash.
