Product Reveal

Hello everyone!

Gloria here today, I happy to share four projects with so adorable stamp and die sets.
These stamp sets and die set are really awesome!
Today my technique is watercolouring background. Watercolouring is my favourite technique it is very easy and useful. I used Kuretake watercolours for these cards.

Here is my first project.

For my first card, I created a snowy night background with blue and purple watercolours and die cut using a snowflake die from warm and cozy die set. And added some snows with white gel pen. I stamped the Santa and puppy on a white card stock using Puppy kisses for Santa stamp and coloured with Copic markers, fussy cut them with my Cutter Bee scissors and adhere on the watercoloured panel with double-sided foam tape.

Here is my second project.

I created warm coloured background and added a frost white ink all over the panel. I die cut a mitten set using warm and cozy die set and adhere them on the coloured panel with double sided foam tape. 

Here is my third project.

For this card, I try to express auroras in the winter sky. I watercoloured the night scene with purple , blue and light green and stamped sled of Santa and trees using Here comes Santa stamp set. I stamped on a white card stock using Eskimo Kisses stamp set and colored with Copic markers. The 'Here comes Santa stamp set' are makes perfect Christmas background.

Here is my last project today.

I love making my own pattern with stamp set and How are ewe stamp set are perfect for making my own pattern.  For create this card, I stamped the images from How are ewe stamp set randomly onto watercolour paper panel in pigment black, colored the background using a paintbrush, and added some shiny sequins.

I hope you enjoy the post today.

Getting Your Planner Ready For Christmas!

Hello friends! It's Karla back with one more post using some of the fabulous new products available in the Scrap Shotz Store - Kaisercraft First Noel Collection and the Sizzix Tim Holtz Thinlets Die Swirling Stars. Everytime I looked at the Kaisercraft Sticker Booklet all I could think about was how awesome it would be to decorate my planner for December - there are over 800 stickers in it! I used lots of stickers along with the beautiful First Noel papers and some diecut ephemera pieces as well.

I cut one of the 12x12 papers and punched holes in it to fit right in my A5 Personal Planner, making a little tabbled divider. The diecut ephemera pieces were great to use with some large paperclips to tuck into the planner pages.  

I used the gold numbers from the sticker booklet to number each day and cut out some of the images from the paper, using coloured pencils to add some colour.

The black stickers and sentiments from the booklet were great to add directly onto each day.

I even added stars using the Sizzix Swirling Star diecuts as a stencil with some Distress Oxide Ink.

I added some doodles and the Christmas Eve sticker from the 12x12 sticker sheet. A little red star cut from the Sizzix die set adds another pop of colour.

Now my planner is ready for adding in all the fun December details as they arise! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! If you haven't checked out the last two posts featuring these fun supplies, you can find them HERE and HERE. Be sure to head over to the Scrap Shotz store to check out the Kaisercraft First Noel Collection and the Sizzix Tim Holtz Thinlets Die Swirling Stars, and don't forget you can always browse what's new HERE!

Pretty In Pink - October kit!

Good morning!
Although the colours in this months kit are fabulous for all your fall photos there is also beautiful pink papers!
As scrapbookers and parents we are often the ones behind the camera and not very often do we step out in front unless it is a family photo!  We need to be in the photos more often....

I began by tearing then layering the beautiful pink papers then I added some lace from my stash

to add a bit of colour I added some of the teal paper and a few teal flowers!

I created clusters using the flowers from the kit and add ons and some from my stash

Thanks for stopping by!

Kaisercraft First Noel and Sizzix Stars Layout and Video

Hello friends! It's Karla back today with more fun projects using Kaisercraft First Noel Collection and the Sizzix Tim Holtz Thinlets Die Swirling Stars - both new products in the Scrap Shotz Store! These fun supplies are going to be awesome for your Christmas crafting! If you missed the post where I share a video closeup of all these products, along with a layout and three cards, click HERE.

Today, I'm sharing this sweet Christmas layout of my daughter's Kindergarten nativity pageant where she played Mary. I thought this paper was just perfect with the three wisemen printed directly on the background! I'm using the October Sketchy Challenge from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, and you can see the process I used in the video below.

There are so many fun elements to layer in this collection- papers, stickers and diecuts!! I added a border sticker from the 12x12 Sticker Sheet across the top of my photos and then layered a 3x4 card from the cut apart sheet with leafy stickers from the Sticker Booklet and sweet bird diecuts from the Ephemera Pack.

The Swirling Star dies are so fun to use, just as you would sequins or enamel dots - simply glue them on wherever you like! The sticker booklet has lovely sentiment stickers - I layered one directly on the photo on the left and one under the photo on the right. I wrote my journaling directly on the page, using the grid pattern as a guide.

Here's a look at the process video where you can see exactly how I created this layout-

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to head over to the Scrap Shotz store to check out the Kaisercraft First Noel Collection and the Sizzix Tim Holtz Thinlets Die Swirling Stars, and don't forget you can always browse what's new HERE. Have a fantastic, crafty week ahead!

Scrap Shotz October Kit Auburn Lane

Rosie here to share with you my October kit projects using the beautiful warm colours of the Pink Paislee Auburn Lane line:

This kit is packed full of product, a great value at $35.95 for a 3 month subscription!

DT member Laura created this fabulous sketch for the team to use this month:

Here is my layout based on the sketch:

 I fussy cut the florals from 2 different sheets of patterned paper and the gold foiled vellum, layering along the left side of the layout.
The best thing about a kit is that all the products coordinate well together making it easy to mix patterns when creating the project layers as per the sketch.

The accents are from the kit puffy stickers, stickers, ephemera and Studio Katia floral sequins.

I worked on this next layout at the Scrap Shotz Fall crop and am happy to say I completed everything except the photos and the sequins :):

I have used this design in the past, it is inspired by a Simple Stories layout and is a great way to mix patterned papers without overwhelming the photos.

The pink flower at the top is one of the kit sequins, the rest of the layout is accented with kit stickers and die cuts.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look, I'm working on a series of thank you cards utilizing this kit I hope to share with you over the next few days.
