Scrap Shotz June kit reveal - Wild Whisper design Day 2

Hello friends!
Gloria here today to share June card kit project. This kit is so beautiful and perfect for summer project. You can find this set at the Scrap Shotz Store!


For create this project, first I added some white ink splatters all over the 12 x 12 size Stonehenge card stock.


I cut the Lake Life paper for layering.
Here are a few step outs showing how I got my pieces together and adhere them all using double-sided tape.


I need some more flowers so I fussy cut flowers from the Lake Life paper with my Cutter Bee scissors. 


And I adhere the flowers on the layout using double-sided tape.


For the sentiment, I used thickers from American crafts and added Peacock Feathers Sequin Mix from Neat and Tangled.


My second project is a Tri- shutter card.


I referenced Beccy's tutorial here.
For create this card, I folded and cut with Mysterious teal card stock using the diagram from the reference.


I put on the pieces on the folded card how got them all together.


And adhere them all as shown using double sided tape.


 Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!

Product Reveal - Stargazer collection - Day 2

Good morning!
I am back to share my third and final project suing the wonderful Stargazer collection from Kaisercraft!

I knew when I saw this title I had to create a layout about me and our boys!

'When you stop + look around - this life is pretty amazing'


I started by layering the papers from the collection pack 


I tore some strips of the coordinating  papers


I added a sticker from the sticker sheet


I cut the title into pieces rather than one long title and added a butterfly from last months kit!

Thanks for stopping by

Product Reveal - Kaisercraft Stargazer!

Good morning!
When I received my products for this month I was so happy!
I LOVE Kaisercraft and was really wanting to work with the Stagazer collection!

My first layout is of our youngest when he was little....

'I love you to the moon and back'


I used the busiest paper (which I still really liked) as a background to give dimension and visual insterest.  I will often use the busiest or loudest paper in the a collection pack as my background paper


I used some gold paint through the wonderful mini stencil for a blast of colour






I then began to layer papers to make the photo the focal point and the coordinating die cuts.  

My second layout is of our oldest a while ago also

'You are my sun....'


The collection pack makes it very easy to layer all the coordinating papers!



I kept the photo the focal point by adding and layering all my papers, die cuts, doilies (from my stash) and a piece of burlap (also from my stash) so your eye is drawn to the photo.
Thanks for stopping by and check back tomorrow for my third layout!

Product Reveal: Altenew Garden Silhouette and Altenew Rustic Linen

Altenew keeps on knocking it out of the park - their layered stamp sets, innovative sentiments and gorgeous background stamps have cardmakers and scrapbookers squealing in delight.

I'd like to share my first project showcasing Altenew's Rustic Linen. This background set is very versatile. With the Distress Oxide Inks, the creaminess of the inks combined with the stamp has created a dimensional background. The background is a perfect backdrop for stamped Altenew images. And let's not forget their fabulous sentiments - they seem to fit any card.


For my next project, I again used Distress Oxide inks AND Distress Inks. Stamping these silhouette images in a variety of colours allowed me to make a beautiful bouquet of wildflowers...again backdropped with the linen background.


I am looking forward to making several sets of cards to give to family and friends with these stamps and hope to see your ideas too!



Scrap Shotz June kit reveal - Wild Whisper design

Hi Friends Gloria here today to share June card kit project. This kit is really awsome and perfect for camping project. You can find this set at the Scrap Shotz Store!

Today I want to share three projects with June card kit
The first project I used a whirlpool card stock on base and used  Mysterious teal card stock, Lake life papers, some ephemera, flair button and Peacock Feathers Sequin Mix from Neat and Tangled.


For my first layout, I used a sketch from this month Scrap Shotz sketch challenge and I choose a photo to fit with the messages.


I overlapped Lake life papers and decorated the edge of the photo with flowers. 


I added 'my happy place' button, sequins and more embelishements.


This project based on the Laura's beautiful sketch for this month challenge.
For detail, please visit here.


The second project is a card using a sketch from Scrap Shotz June challenge too.


For create this card I, choose the message card and cut the Mysterious teal card stock so little bit bigger than the message card.


I cut the Lake Life papers to fit the size and adhere all the elements as shown a top-fold card using double-sided tape.


This project based on Laura's sketch too.


Today's my last project is Inside shadow box card.
This is cover of the card. This card looks normal but when you open it.


A shodow box pops up.
This is the inside the card.


For create this card first, I cut and folded the card with white card stock and then covered with Lake Life papers.


This inside shadow box is easy to make and looks three- dimensional. I made the canoes and paddles to look 3D.


I die cut a sunbeam card stock using dotted circle die and made a circle frame.


Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Product Review Day 2 - Using Carta Bella and Tim Holtz for a Camping Pocket Page!

Hi there friends! Karla back again today with more goodness to share with you from the product reveal of the Carta Bella Gone Camping collection and the Tim Holtz 3-D Texture Fades Lumber Embossing Folder from Sizzix. Today, I've created a camping pocket page and I'm sharing a process video below so you can see how I put it together.


I used elements from the Carta Bella Gone Camping Paper PackEphemera and Designer Stamps to create a fun page documenting our camping trip last year. 


The 12x12 Sticker Sheet has such great images in it that coordinate with everything else, and I love how awesome the stamps are!


The Tim Holtz 3-D Texture Fades Lumber Embossing Folder from Sizzix is perfect to coordinate with this camping line and worked well to create a 4x6 journaling card. A little Distress Oxide Ink added shading on the raised areas.


Here's a look at the video where you can see the process I used to create this page -


Thanks so much for stopping by! If you haven't seen the previous blog post showing you all the goodies I'm using here today, be sure to check that out HERE. I hope you have an awesome, crafty week!
