Hello everyone!  Sharing today my last layout for this month’s kit.  I decided to create a layout with contrasting bright colors.  What I did was pretty simple actually : I teared up some papers and adhered them on the back,  put a coat of clear Gesso on everything and then I used some paints (Mint and Purple).

I cut the chipboard frame from Creative Embellishments in 2 pieces and coloured them with the chalk ink Purple. I placed them on top and on the bottom of my photo.

I added gorgeous Prima flowers, Lavender Frost tickets and the resin hearts included in the kit as a finishing touch.

Here are some close-ups :

Let it Be Layout with Rae

Happy Saturday, crafty friends!

Today I am sharing a layout I made with the January scrapbook kit.

I started out by creating a mixed media background on the 49 and Market paper. I used a new Prima stencil and chalk paste (from my stash). Then I added some gesso over the stenciling and then added some purple watercolor mixture to make the stenciling blend into the background.

I cut up the Prima Lavender Frost page that had a bunch of the ephemera images, and created some layers for under the photo.

I cut apart the Creative Embellishments rose corner chipboard to place under both flower clusters. I used a purple iridescent embossing powder, then added some white and gold embossing powder over the first layer to create the look. I also added the 7 Gypsies Architextures Ornate Garden stakes to each side of the picture. (I had a pack of those in my stash, so I used one of those so I could use two of the same stake.

I added some doily die cuts under each of the flower clusters as well.

Day by day by Annie Carignan

Hello friends !

I am sharing today a layout with soft colors. I was in a Scrap Therapie mood! I found this photo of myself from a few years ago that I had forgotten.  I though it was nice and wondered why I hadn’t used it before… Never too late!

I put some ink on the chipboard to put behind my photo.

Coated the background with clear gesso and used a stencil from my stash with Crackle Paste.  I used watercolor on the background just a little to add some color to match the paper.  I cut out some peaces of the different papers included in the kit to put behind the photo along with some of the embellishments.

The kit has such gorgeous flowers from Prima !

Here are some other close-ups :

 

I just love these resin hearts ! I would put them everywhere !

More gorgeous flowers !! And that flower chipboard…..

The fabric you see behind the photo is from my stash.

Chicken Wire Shadowbox with Rae

Hello there. Today I am sharing my project that I made with the January Mixed Media kit, featuring this 12X12 Chicken Wire Shadowbox, A variety of of paints, including a weathered wood crackle medium, lovely Prima Marketing and Darice flowers, and some gorgeous chipboard elements from Creative Embellishments.

Here’s what I came up with.

I started out by using the purple paint on the wood box. Then I added the crackle medium. Once dry, I added the silver paint which gave the texture of random crackle on the box. Then, I lightly added some more of the purple and silver paints, basically giving it a bit of a dry brushing. Before it dried, I wiped off the paint with a baby wipe, and finished it by adding some purple chalk inks for some variety in color.

Next, I took a piece of the 49 and Market paper from the kit and hand drew a heart to cut out. Then I added some faux stitching with a sewing wheel and black marker. I also added some black lace from my stash around the heart.

Next, I used embossing powders to the chipboard quote and glued it on to the paper. Then I added the flowers from the kit. I had an extra pack of the white Prima Marketing flowers from the kit in my stash, so I used a few from that pack as well.

Lastly, I used embossing powders on the Creative Embellishments chipboard doily, cut it in half, and placed the halves on opposite corners of the shadowbox. I used the remaining purple flowers and a couple of the flowers from the scrapbook kit on the doily pieces.

End result:

Card and Tag Kit Spotlight

Hello!

Today we are showcasing our Cards, Tags, and More kit for December. This month the kit features a 6 x 6 paper pad from the Mintay Christmas Stories line, coordinating red and green cardstock, two packages of Creative Embellishments sentiments, and from Kaisercraft, three lovely mini flower packs and some white pearls embellishments. Take a look at the picture below:

And, here’s what the DT came up with using the kit this month:

Kim made a beautiful card and wine holder set:

Rae made a couple of cards, cutting out that darling little deer for the focal points of the cards.

And Rae also made this fun tag set, focusing on the red and blue color combo with those papers.

The card/tag kit has plenty of paper for all kinds of small projects. Even after you use up all of the embellishments from the kit, you will have paper left over to use with your own embellishments! It’s a great deal!

And, we still have a few kits available, so be sure to snag one HERE, if you haven’t already!

Thanks for taking time to check out the blog today!

Merry Christmas Shadow Box with Rae

Hello!

Today I am sharing the last project I made with the December kit. After making my sketch layout and my stocking bunting, I was down to scraps of paper and bits and pieces from the kit! So, I had to come up with something small, and kind of basic. Here it is:

This little shadow box is made with scraps of the Maja Design paper, and the amazing Creative Embellishments holly frame.

I used one of the boxes from the Tim Holtz vignette box set and one of his metal stands, both from my stash.

I covered the box with scraps of the red Maja paper that I cut to size, distressed, and inked with brown ink on the edges.

Then I cut the red border away from the picture of the Santa, so it would fit in the box, and what do you know? That border was the PERFECT size to the front of the box, so I inked that and glued it on as well. Once all the paper was glued to the outside of the box, I added some white gold wax paste to the edges.

I also added some of wax paste to the metal base that I already white washed with gesso.

After I distressed and inked the Santa picture, I glued inside the box.

I used Stampendous aged green embossing powder on the Creative Embellishments holly frame, then added some of the white Kaisercraft pearls to the small circles. TIP: I always use a heat tool on my pearls after I have place them on my project to heat up the glue- if you press the pearls down when the glue is warm, it will really stick! There’s need to add extra glue or Glossy Accents to each of the pearls if you do this!

Lastly, I added a title cut from one of the bottom of the Maja papers, and added a red poinsettia from my stash.

Peace, Love, and Joy Tags with Rae

Hello there!

It’s time to start making tags, if that’s something you do for Christmas! 🙂 Today I am sharing a few tags I made with the December Cards, Tags, and More kit.

My inspiration for creating this tag trio was the Creative Embellishments chipboard set that came in the kit: Peace Love and Joy titles. I kept the design mostly the same for all three tags: I hand cut some of the red cardstock from the kit to make tag shapes, and then cut some of the Mintay  Christmas Stories papers slightly smaller for layers for the base of the tags. I distressed the edges of both layers, then inked the edges of the patterned paper layers.

I also cut out doilies (Prima) from the Mintay papers- one for each tag.

I also cut out some leafy swirls using a Cheery Lynne die. I cut those and added them to peek out from under the Kaisercraft flowers.

Under each of the pieces of chipboard, I added three little cut outs from the Mintay paper and fanned them to give a nice base for the chipboard titles.

I treated the Creative chipboard pieces with some white and gold embossing powders.

Challenge Monday

Happy Monday everyone, it’s Kim here. I’m back with another edition of Challenge Monday. This month is a layout sketch challenge.

Here is the sketch:

Although this is a layout sketch, it can easily be adapted for cards, tags or even a canvas.

Here is my take on the sketch:

I used a photo I found on Pinterest (there were no photo credits).  I just loved the contrast of the black gates up against the white snow and those pretty wreaths.

How about some close ups?

I started with the flowers. They weren’t the right shade of green for me, so I changed the color with some Lindy’s cathedral pines green mist. while they were wet, I flattened them out some. I also cut off a piece of the poinsettia vine.

I cut up the holly and berry border chipboard piece and heat embossed it with lindy’s oakleaf olive embossing powder. I also embossed and cut up some of the snowflake chipboard pieces from my stash. I tucked a few in my flower cluster. I popped the layers up with foam tape.

I used a small berry cluster from my stash on the bottom along with flowers.  I tucked in a small piece of lace on the bottom.

Here is my little tip for the week: I have found that Lindy’s Oakleaf Olive embossing powder and Cathedral Pines Green mist are  great matches for this kit. If you have it in your stash try it out.

I can’t wait to see what you guys create based on the sketch. Don’t forget to load your entries in the sketch challenge folder here , so you will be eligible for the prize.

Join us all month-long as the designers reveal all their projects created with all our amazing kits. We still have kit subscriptions available here. You can also just try out a single kit here.
