Real Life | My Creative Scrapbook - June Main Kit

Hi My Scrapping Friends!

Today I'm back with another layout created for My Creative Scrapbook using the gorgeous June main kit! 

I documented a photo of my son from a 2011, Bermuda vacation....we had such a blast on a day trip we took to Horseshoe Bay Beach and just seeing that smile on Max's face as we walk onto the beach was priceless!

I used the patterned paper Good times and All together to create my diagonal design. Next, still following the diagonal line, I added a few thin strips of pattern paper to the lower half of my page and machine stitched down the middle for some added texture.  

I added a few layers of pattern paper behind my photo, tucked a small tag and sticker to the top left  side of my photo and to the bottom right hand corner I created a small cluster that includes some of the Family and Co....chipboard and a puffy sticker.  

Here you can see I used a paper punch to create a few die cut stars, tucked a few tag under the thin strips of pattern paper and used one of the phrase from the ephemera pack as my title.

I hope I have inspired you to create something beautiful using your kits from My Creative Scrapbook!

Today | Just Nick Studio

Hi Scrapping Friends!

Today I'm sharing a layout that I created using the Planes, Trains & Automobiles cut file from the Just Nick Studio shop!

The train in the Planes,Trains & Automobiles cut file set were perfect to document this photo of Max's Day Out With Thomas! Max enjoyed meeting Sir Topham Hatt and had a fabulous time  
 being a passenger on Thomas The Train. 

I used the Go See Explore collection from Echo Park for most of this layout with the exception, the base patterned paper is from an older collection A Boy's Life.



I started by enlarging the train and cutting the image on some pattern paper. Once this was finish I used the offset function in Silhouette to create an outline, which I used as a guideline for my stitching.  Next, I cut the offset image from some pattern paper and adhered to the background. I then hand stitched around the entire train using white embroidery floss.

Here are some close-ups of my page...

I drew a few clouds to represent smoke and outline it with a black marker. 

For this page title I chose the Today from the Word 2 cut file, cut it from black cardstock and outline  around the edges with a white marker.

I added a couple of chipboard accents to bottom right hand corner of my photo, along with my title.

I wanted to use some buttons for the train wheels but it just didn't look quite right so I ended up using enamels dot instead.  
I finished my page off by adding some gold stars around the page and my journaling.

Thanks for stopping by :) 

I hope I inspired you to create something beautiful using Just Nick cut files!

My Creative Scrapbook | We Are Family | June Tutorial

Hi My Creative Scrapbook Fans!  Today I have a step-by-step tutorial to share with you using the June Main Kit! I absolutely love the colors and patterns in the Family & Co. collection featured in this kit.

I started my layout off by drawing three triangles in multiple sizes onto some white cardstock.    

Next, I use a craft knife to cut the insides of the triangles out to create the design below.       

I then selected my patterned papers, cutting both at 9 x 4 inches and adhering in a staggering design onto my 12x12 base.     


Next, I added the larger triangle and placing it horizontally across the patterned papers.  

 I placed the smaller triangle horizontally with the larger one and the other I placed vertically.

Next, I created a 3/4" circle with some machine stitching and then adhered my photos with some foam tape underneath to give it some extra dimension.  To the far left side of my layout I added a thin strip of the Love at Home patterned paper-reverse side.

Next, embellishments. I added a few of the chipboard and puffy stickers atop the stitch 3/4" circle and place some label stickers from Jillibean Soup here and there for extra interest. 

I used one of the phrase from the die cut ephemera pack, along with a puffy heart sticker to created my title.     

A few paint splashes and this page was finish!

          I hope I inspired you to create something beautiful ...

Play All Day Every Day | My Creative Scrapbbook

Hi my scrapping friends!

Today I'm back to share my first layout using My Creative Scrapbook gorgeous June main kit. This kit is absolutely amazing with so many beautiful colors and corresponding embellishments!

I documented a photo of my son have a great time fishing at the lake last summer. 

I started by selection my patterned papers, cutting one on the diagonally and adhere to the other with some machine stitching.  

I created a cluster of embellishments on the bottom right hand corner of the photo that include a few pieces from the Family & Co ephemera pack and a chipboard sticker.

I added some layers of patterned paper to create a matt for my photo and then added some foam tape underneath to give it some extra height and dimension.  On the left side of the photo I used the twine (included in the main kit) which added some more texture to the page.

Next, I used a paper punch to create a few diamonds and adhered with some machine stitching. I love the added interest this created.

I finished the layout off  by adding some puffy stickers and along with a few paint splashes around the page.

Take Me Away | Just Nick Studio and Pagemaps

Hi Scrapping Friends! 

Today I'm back with you and I am excited to share my layout that I created for the team up with Pagemaps!

I'm not a big fan of 12x12 double page layouts but I have to say I had a ton of fun using this amazing sketch by Becky Fleck.

I decided to use the cut files as my main source of embellishment to create my page.  I begin by selection one of the flowers from the Floral and Fauna cut file and cut several flowers using the Summer Fun collection from Echo Park into two different sizes.

Next I used the spray of small berries from the Sweater Weather cut file and cut this out of white cardstock.

The sketch is divided into three sections, so to create this I added the scalloped border cut from black cardstock using the Borders1 cut file.    

Here are a couple of close-ups...

Thank you so much for stopping by!

  I hope I inspired you to create something beautiful using Just Nick Cut Files!

Creative Scrappers Sketch #307 | Fantastic

Hi my scrapping friends! 

It's a new month and that means a new sketch here at Creative Scrappers!

Kristine created another fabulous sketch for us this month!

Here's my take on this month's sketch!

I used Echo Park - Summer Fun patterned paper collection to create this layout featuring a few photos of my son playing with plastic beads and using a Rubbermaid container as a hat!

Using the sketch as it was designed with one exception, I used two photos instead of three. I started by selection my pattern papers and using some machine stitching to adhere then to a 12x12 white cardstock. 
I matted my photos using some solid cardstocks from Echo Park-Summer Fun collection, which coordinated perfectly with the patterned papers!    

Here are a few close-ups of my page.

  Our sponsor Altenew have an amazing selection of stamps and I just happen to have the Beautiful Day stamp & die set  in my collection.  I used the stamp set to create my embellishments for my page and added a few enamel dots.

How beautiful are these stamp flowers!
 I added a strip of  journaling to my layout and this page was finish!

I started my layout off by cutting strips of patterned paper into several different sizes and adhere them to this gorgeous coral paper from Jillibean Soup. I love all the laying this create behind my photo and at this point decided to frame my photo by adding one of the frame from the Becky Higgins-project life-currently edition collection.

I combined a die-cut from the ephemera pack and some alphabet stickers to create my title.

I finished my layout off by placing a few arrow stickers and some enamel dots around my page.

Awesome Day | Just Nick Studio

Hi my scrapping friend! 

I'm back with you today to share a Vacation layout for Just Nick Studio created with the Borders 1 and Arrow Set 2 cut files.
This photo was taken on one of our trips to Barbados.  We spend the mornings at the beach and after lunch it was pool time! 
I combined the Hardy Hodgepodge, Bowl of Dreams and Souper Celebration collections from Jillibean Soup for this layout!

 To create my starting point for my layout, I used multiple patterned papers for each of the Borders 1 cut file and adhered it horizontally onto a 11x11 white cardstock.

     I created a cluster of embellishments on the top right hand corner of my photo that includes a couple of wood veneers, some die cut pieces and a flair. 

I  keep the embellishments to a minimum on the left side of my photo, and added some journaling below my photo.

To the top left hand corner of my layout I added a small banner. To create my title I combined one of the arrows from the cut file with a couple of words from the cardstock stickers.
A few paint splashes and some sequins finish off this layout.

Thanks for stopping by :) xx
