Happy October!

Hello Scrap Shotz Friends!

We are now officially half way through October, Halloween is fast approaching with Christmas right on its heels! Our DT member Karla has been sharing some wonderful Halloween projects on her blog in her 13 Days of Halloween series, here's the link if you have not yet seen it :). If you fall in love with something you love please contact Scrap Shotz HERE to let us know what you'd like us to order for you!

I have been playing with a variety of products and I get to share the end results with you here😊.



This card was inspired by the Lawn Fawn Gift Tag Snow Globe die set, it works so beautifully with the smaller Lawn Fawn images from this season and past season stamp sets. This card utilizes the Lawn Fawn Christmas Fishes stamp and die. I used glitter card stock and cherry wood card stock from my stash for the outer globe elements. 

I embossed the white card stock with a WRMK embossing folder and then brushed with Perfect Pearls in perfect pearl to add shine.


Some Studio Katia Clear Drops add more shine to the card.
Next are a couple of shaker tags all on their own...



Here I have use the Lawn Fawn Say What? Christmas Critters for the llama and the Mama Elephant Little Penguin Agenda combined with the Lawn Fawn Snow Globe Gift tag die




Here I have created an 'eclipse card'. I began by stamping the Altenew Modern Pointsettia stamp and heat embossing with Silver detail embossing powder.
After letting the embossing cool I die cut 'Merry Christmas' with a Tonic Studios die. I cut 4 more sentiments from navy card stock and then layered them over each other and under the embossed die cut to create the "eclipse" effect.
I added some red glitter with Stickles Christmas Red after adhering the stacked sentiment.


I will be teaching a Christmas Card Class for Scrap Shotz during the Fall Pop Up Shop and Crop, these are the cards you will create:


An easy watercolour card, 2 floating die cut cards and an 'eclipse'card...all for $25, CARD CLASS HERE click the preceding link to purchase your card class.

Kaisercraft, Let it Snow - Ready for December

If you popped onto our social media channels last month you will have seen that I received the entire Kaisercraft, Let it Snow collection bundle to play with! Pinch me, what a collection! 

Imagine teal, silver and white foundation colours embellished with loads of shiny bits and amazing wood veneers. Wait, don't imagine it, you can see all the goodies in my unboxing video  - caution major enabler alert, the collection is absolutely fantastic and we still have these goodies in the shop!   



Seeing the colours and touches in this collection, I could not resist pairing it with some red cardstock, red/white twine from my stash and a Simple, Stories, SN@P 6x8 Album from the Scrap Shotz shop to create my entire December Daily 2019 foundation album. Yup the whole thing is ready for December! 

A December Daily is a project you create by documenting December memories each day for the month of December. I created my first one a couple of years ago and loved how I found ways to bring the December spirit into our lives so I would have great things to scrapbook. Win, win - I got to experience a great memory and I had an excuse to scrapbook a little bit every day! 

So excited to show you my Kaisercraft, Let it Snow December Daily album ....



Now I just have to wait  the 47 sleeps until December 1st so I can start making holiday memories and loading up this album with photos, journaling and ephemera! I will be sure to do another flip through video once it's complete in January. 

Do you December Daily? We would love to hear about your project!

Simple Stories Happy Haunting Treat Box Kit with Video

Hello! Karla here today with a peek at the adorable Simple Stories Happy Haunting Treat Box Kit available now in the Scrap Shotz store. I not only love the colours and images in this collection, but the instructions to make five different types of boxes and bags are awesome! I can totally see using these directions for many more holidays. You will make 12 treat holders in total with the supplies included with this kit, and you'll have left over ephemera to use on cards, scrapbook layouts - or more treat boxes!


These are so cute, and perfect to give out as class, teacher and coworker treats. These would even be great for Halloween parties, and they were quick and easy to finish up!


I love how the ephemera is layered and popped. The pops of pink look so great with the oranges and blacks. You could even use these for home decor!


Your kit includes detailed instructions with photos, 7 pieces of doublesided patterned cardstock, chipboard stickers and two different packages of ephemera to complete 12 treat holders.


Here's a look at the Video where you can see these cute boxes and bags closeup!


Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out these super sweet treat boxes in the Scrap Shotz Store, and don't forget you can always find what's new in the shop here. Have an awesome week friends!

More Just A Little Lovely Kit Projects

Hello Scrap Shotz friends,

Rosie back with the remainder of my of September kit projects. If you are looking for the Creative Team Blog Hop click HERE.


I fussy cut a portion of the wreath from the Around Here paper and rolled it back to create an area for this photo of my wonderful in-laws celebrating their 65th Wedding Anniversary.


I trimmed some of the paper to get a roll that was not too thick.


I backed the opening with silver glitter card stock that I inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink, blue is the colour for a 65th anniversary. The photo is matted on black card stock and then tucked among the florals that were fussy cut.


I surrounded the photo with a wood sticker and dimensional sticker from the embellishment package. The small puffy alphas create the title and the word stickers reinforce the occasion being celebrated. I added Blue Lagoon Nuvo Glitter Drops randomly around the layout.

This is such a great kit, I made a total of 6 cards!



I inked white card stock with Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink, then applied Gina K White Glitz Glitter Gel through Vicki Boutin stencil, sorry I can not find the exact name of the stencil, it has lots of various sized circles.
The die cut card stock is made of two layers cut from the Mama Elephant Circular Grid die and then adhered together slightly offsetting the yellow under the green.



The die cuts are then glued to a white card stock on an angle and trimmed to fit. A kit phrase sticker serves as the sentiment and a sprinkle of Studio Katia crystals adds a little more shine.


I have inked this card with Mustard Seed and Carved Pumpkin Distess ink, then layer the Altenew Elegant Swirls stencil on top and "lifted off" ink with a wet paper towel.


The card is embellished with a gold foiled acetate flower and the sentiment is a combination of the puffy stickers and puffy alphas included in the kit.


This card was super easy to create. The "HBD" is a Stamp Market die so I cut it out of the watercolour patterned paper, ensuring I kept the insides of the B and D.
I then cut a foam panel with the die and sandwiched clear acetate between the patterned paper and foam. The insides of the B and D are glued to the front of the acetate sheet and the corresponding foam piece are glued behind the patterned paper creating the perfect channel for the shaker elements.


I laid the front piece face down, added Studio Katia clear and iridescent sequins and glued the patterned paper to the back of the foam. I was careful to get the liquid adhesive all the way to the inner edges of the letters to ensure the sequins don't escape.


After creating the shaker card I was left with the actual letters which make another super easy card. I adhered them to the foam letters and then glued them to a white card base.


I embellished the letters with florals from the kit and the card front with Studio Katia crystals and just like that, done!


I have fallen in love with the Lawn Fawn Magic Picture Changer and had coloured a number of these birthday cakes from the Lawn Fawn Birthday Before and Afters stamp set and this colour combo was perfect for the kit.
The cake is coloured with Copic Markers and of course the picture changer is cut with the die. The green frame is cut with the Magic Picture Changer Add On which is a must as it cuts the perfect sized frame.


The picture changer mat is cut from kit paper with the Lawn Fawn Just Stitching Double Rectangles.


The sentiment is created with the kit puffy alphas and phrase stickers and the card is embellished with kit enamel dots.

My final card is quick and easy one to make.


I simply trimmed leftover cuts from previous projects and adhered to white card stock. I added gold foiled acetate blooms with liquid adhesive, I spread it thinly across the die cut with my finger and you can not see any signs of it once it dries.

A phrase sticker from the kit stickers and die cut from the add on combine for the sentiment.

This kit is so inspiring all on it's own and packed full of product; the only add-on I used was the die cut add on. I created a total of 5 layouts and 6 cards and still had product leftover.

Thanks for taking a look!
