Beautiful Memories

Hello All!

We've come to the final project from our Creative Team for the Scrap Shotz May Kit-Shimmering Sapphires. This one is from Virginia and she'll also give us a little insight into her creative process:

"I love the options I have in using the double sided pattern papers of the Kaisercraft paperline in the kit. Can you pick out the different pieces of pattern paper? The coordinating spray, die cuts and stickers made putting this layout together a breeze. (Don't forget to to include a picture of yourself too in your layouts!)"

I love all the die cuts used on this layout and those pearls are the perfect finishing touch.

That's it for May kit projects, we'd love to see how YOU use our kits if you're a subscriber, share them here, on our Facebook page or tag us on Instagram @scrapshotz. We'd love to see anything you've created with products from Scrap ShotzπŸ˜ƒ.

June kit projets will be coming very, very soon along with a special announcement so stay tuned to the blog.

Scrap Shotz May Kit Project with Virginia

Hi There!

Virginia is here with another gorgeous layout featuring the May kit:

The offset photo placement is balanced by the block of paper strips and anchored with the full width of woodgrain paper along the bottom.

The quote sticker provides a resting place for the photo and quote blocks. Die cut and fussy cut butterflies lead the eye around the page. Pearls add a nice bit shine in addition to the butterflies misted with the kit spray.

June kit add ons are now available along with kit subscriptions so pop in to the store and see what's next up in our kit program😊

Thanks for coming by!

The Sweet Life A May Kit Project

Good Day Everyone!

It's Rosie back with one more of my kit projects for May, this time a double page spread!

The blues in my vacation photos from Hawaii coordinate perfectly with the blues in this kit. An easy way to unify both side of a double page spread is to mirror your patterned paper placement which you can see above with the woodgrain paper in the centre and the blue pattern on the outer portion.

I punched circles with my circle punch and then embellished select circles with kit gems.

A mix of kit die cuts and fussy cut elements (butterfly and LOVE) combine to form a unique embellishment cluster.

It's not too late to purchase a May kit subscription, click here if you're interested!

Vacation with the May Scrap Shotz Kit

Greetings Friends!

Virginia is here again to share this vacation layout created with the May kit featuring the Kaisercraft Indigo Skies collection:

"I wanted to add some subtle texture in the background for the waves and wind from the day and popped up random areas."

Virginia does a great job journaling with the kit die cuts and stickers and if you look closely you can see gold thread around the butterflies.

This is a versatile paper collection, we've seen birthday, travel, vacation and everyday life photos so far in the project reveal.  

Thanks for stopping by!😊

Birthday Wish

I hope you're enjoying the May kit reveal, Virginia is sharing this lovely layout with us today so let's hear from her:

"This layout was made with my pattern paper off cuts solely. I love the beautiful pattern papers and how well they complement each other. I used dies from my stash to create a title for my photo again using offcuts."

A vellum banner softens the patterned paper layer and keeps the focus on the sentiment.

We are looking forward to sharing the remainder of Virginia's projects with you so come on back tomorrow πŸ˜ƒ.

May Scrap Shotz Kit Sketch Projects

Hey there!

Sketches are a great inspiration/jumping off point for a layout design, theme or blueprint.
The team creates a layout based on a sketch for the project kit reveal every month and here is the sketch we chose for May:

You can't go wrong with a Pagemaps sketch and Virginia picked a lovely one, here is my layout:

Lots of die cuts and stickers are included in the kit so I used them to echo the florals in the kit.
I used foam tape on some of the die cuts to raise them up and add visual interest.

Nuvo crystal drops in Midnight Blue create a dotted patterned paper around the photos and die cuts.

Here is Virginia's take on the sketch:

and she also used the sketch to create this lovely card:

We would love to see YOUR creations with the sketch and kit! You can post them here in the comments, on our FB page OR tag @scrapshotz, #scrapshotzkitmembers on Instagram.
