Hello | My Creative Scrapbook-May Tutorial





Hello My Creative Scrapbook fans!  Yvette here, and today I'm sharing a layout I create using this month's sketch designed by the talented Laura Whitaker. I love to use sketches as a starting point on most of my pages, it gives me the inspiration I need to start my layouts. 

         

Here's a look at the May sketch...




I start by gathering some of my supplies to create my base for my layout.  Next, using a 1 3/4 circle paper punch I created several circles, I then cut out a few thin strips of pattern paper which I use to attach my circles to.       
       

I adhere all of the circles to the thin strips of patterned paper using a staple-as shown below.


Once my background was finish, I started working on adding some layers of patterned paper behind my photo. I also added some foam tape between the layers to create lots of dimension





At this point, I started adding my embellishments using the sketch as my guide.

   
On the right side of the photo I created a cluster of embellishments by layering together some of the chipboard accents from the Spring Market collection, a couple of paper shapes flowers, as well as a few cut file butterflies which was added all along the right side of the photo and also along the top.     


I combined one of the chipboard phrases from the collection, with a cardstock sticker to create my title. I also added a chipboard tag underneath the title and another cut file butterfly. 


Included in this month's main kit was a beautiful strip of burlap, I decided to add it along the bottom of my page, I love the added interest and texture this create on my layout.  

I finished the layout off with a few enamel dots and added some of Maggie Holmes vintage buttons to the top of the paper flowers.

I hope you felt inspired today and if you're not a subscriber yet, give it a try. The kits are all so beautiful and you will not regret it!!!!

Thanks for stopping by :) xx

Happy Little Moments | My Creative Scrapbook





Hi My Scrapping Friends!

Today I'm back to share another layout with you using the beautiful May Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook.  The beautiful florals and colors in the Spring Market collection were perfect to document these photos of Max having a great time playing in the dirt! 

I started with a few layers of patterned paper and then fussy cut the beautiful floral window box cluster. I added the window box cluster to the top of my page as well as a paper flower from Bazzill Basics, my title and few chipboard words.


A butterfly stencil was use to add a bit more interest and texture to the background paper.


I created a smaller cluster in the bottom left hand corner using a couple of clipboard stickers and a few fussy cut flowers. 


Added a piece of the burlap strip including in this month's main kit to right side of the page.

I finished the layout off with some black ink splatters, a few enamel dots and my journaling.

I hope you felt inspired today and if you're not a subscriber yet, give it a try. The kits are all so beautiful and you will not regret it!!!!

Happy Stuff | My Creative Scrapbook





Hi My Scrapping Friends! 

Today I'm here to share one of my layout created with the May main kit from My Creative Scrapbook, along with this month's free cut files!  This kit features the beautiful, Spring Market collection by Carta Bella, and I couldn't resist documenting a photo of me celebrating my birthday!


Here's this month's cut file...


I decided to use three of the potted plants on my page and then combining both patterned paper and vellum to back each of the cut files. I love how the vellum create a soft and dreamy look to my layout.  I adhered the cut files using foam tape to give it some dimension and then added a few stickers and a chipboard accent from the Spring Market collection under and to the top of the cut files.





I use a couple of die-cuts to create a few layers using the gorgeous Spring Market patterned paper as well as some solid cardstock.

I created a base with a die-cut and added the happiness blooms from within chipboard phrases on top.  

     
 Added my title to the top right hand corner of my photo, as well as a couple of stickers.

I hope you felt inspired today and if you're not a subscriber yet, give it a try. The kits are all so beautiful and you will not regret it!!!!

Enjoy The Little Things | My Creative Scrapbook





Hi My Scrapping Friends!

Today I'm sharing a layout for My Creative Scrapbook using the gorgeous April main kit! I'm seriously loving everything in this gorgeous kit, especially the beautiful color patterned papers! 

  
I used a grid design to document a couple of photos of my son enjoying and having fun with some watermelon:))))

I started by creating multiple layers of patterned paper behind each of my grids, as well as adding some machine stitching and then adhered to some white cardstock. Next, I trim 3/4 inch off each side of the white cardstock.  I then matted the layout using the reverse side of the From Me To You pattern paper, and also tucked a couple pieces of the larger black and white polka dots paper underneath on an angle for some added interest. 

   
Here's a couple of close-ups....





I finished the layout with a variety of embellishments including ephemera pieces, 3D stickers and a few die cuts.

Thanks for stopping by :) xx

I hope you felt inspired today and if you're not a subscriber yet, give it a try. The kits are all so beautiful and you will not regret it!!!!

Happy Springtime | My Creative Scrapbook - April Tutorial




Hello My Creative Scrapbook fansYvette here, and today I am sharing a layout that all about fussy cutting. Fussy cutting is such a fun and relaxing technique, especially when you get to play with gorgeous florals and patterns like the ones in this month's main kit! 

   
I started by gathering my suppliers. 


The beautiful floral design on the Backyard Blooms and the Hello Spring patterned papers were perfect for this page. I had an idea to create two large clusters of flowers and started by fussy cutting all of floral images....always look for elements in your patterned papers that can be fussy cut to use as embellishments on your page.    
      



 Next, I cut my 5x7 photo into 1/2 inch strips. I then created a 10x10 base with some white cardstock and arrange the photo strips so as to fit inside the center and added some machine stitching around the edges.    



I then matted the layout onto the wood panels patterned paper and love the contrast between the white and brown.  At this point I knew I wanted to incorporate some of the pink in the photo and did this by adding a piece of pink cardstock between the layout and the wood panels base.  I also added a couple strips of patterned paper across the bottom of the page which allowed me to balance the pink from the cardstock.                        


I created two clusters using the fussy cut flowers in opposite corners of the page, along with a few phases from the Simple Stories cardstock stickers and a die-cut from the Patio Party collection ephemera pack.

 
Here's a couple of close-ups....



I finished the layout off  by adding a few more fussy cut Dragonflies! 

I hope I inspired you to go ahead and fussy cut some of the gorgeous patterned papers included in this month's kits and if you're not a subscriber as yet, give it a try.  All the kits are so beautiful, you will not regret it!!!
