All Bundled Up| Scrap Shotz December Kit


Happy Boxing Day!

Rosie here to share my first project using the latest Scrap Shotz scrapbook kit. The kit features the lovely winter themed Carta Bella Let It Snow line.

I began this layout by inking the white card stock with MFT Snow Flurry stencil with Distress oxide inks in Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire. Various sizes of hexagons were die cut from  patterned papers, along with a couple of photos.

I also die cut one of the journal cards from the cut apart sheet. After arranging and adhering the die cuts pieces and photos, I cut the sticker border from the 12x12 sticker sheet and placed on the layout.

Then I added various stickers and chipboard, adhering some with foam adhesive to add dimension.

A few of the berry add-ons are tucked in behind the stickers and photo. For the final touch I glued the TH snowflake charms and embellished them with an enamel dot.

I will be back later this week with a closer look at the kit and more projects.

Thanks for stopping by!

November Kit - A Layout & Card Gift Set

Hi friends! Karla here today with two more projects using the gorgeous Scrap Shotz November Kit Club featuring the Jen Hadfield Along The Way Collection. If you haven't already checked out the last two layouts I created with it, be sure to get the details, along with a process video HERE. This will be the third layout I put together and I love that the beautiful colours and designs can go with so many different themes!

I decided to use the December Sketch from the Creative Scrapbooker Sketchy Challenge and created a circular pattern with the shiny blue Kaisercraft Glitter Tape in the kit. I created a gathered effect by folding it back and forth and then using my sewing machine to stitch through it. 

There are so many pretty cards in the 3x4 cut apart sheet included with the patterned papers, and I decided to use an oval die to cut out the light teal card and fussy cut the house from another card (below). I also fussy cut the butterflies from the sheet of butterfly patterned paper and used lots of the diecut ephemera, buttons, stickers and enamel dots from the kit to create a wreath look on my layout.

The pretty gold foil on the framed Happy Day sticker coordinates wonderfully with the Gold Foil Puffy Letter Thickers and the foiled sentiment on the word sticker! I even used some square and circle stitched dies to diecut various black and white elements to tuck behind the glitter tape.

Next, I decided to make a 6 card set to give as a gift to one of my daughter's teachers at Christmas. I used the patterned paper sheet of sentiments and since I was on the wreath kick 😉 I decided to keep it going! I wanted to keep these fairly basic and they didn't take me long to do at all. I layered leftover bits of paper, even using the pretty branding strips, to create themed cards. I added some Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker to the front of the sentiment wreaths, which I cut out with a stitched circle die, and softened some of them with my waterbrush. I even coordinated the inside of the card, which you can see beside each card front below, to match! I know the teacher is going to love having these handmade cards ready to give out to her own friends!

Even after creating three layouts and six cards I still have lots of product left over from this kit! Thanks so much for stopping by today. Be sure to check out the whole Kit Reveal post HERE for closeups and a video! You can find the kit at the Scrap Shotz store here, and pick up any fun Kit Add-Ons here. I hope you have as much fun playing with these goodies as I have!

November Kit Reveal - Layouts and Video!

Hello friends! Karla back today with two layouts using the beautiful Scrap Shotz November Kit Club featuring the Jen Hadfield Along The Way Collection. I love that this kit can be used for photos throughout the year, and I decided to finally get my maternity pics scrapped! I really love the soft colours in this collection and felt they really made my photos shine.

Here's a look at the video where you can see how I put it all together!

And some closeups:

I'm using a sketch I found on Instagram and I love how the beautiful papers look layered together. I used a 3x4 card from the cut apart page to add a pretty sentiment and then popped up one of the adorable diecut ephemera. 

The wood buttons are so sweet and perfect to add detail and texture to the page. I tucked in a few sentiment stickers from the sticker pack filled with three sheets of phrases and words. The little diecut girl is just so cute!!

I added the gold foil puffy stickers from the kit in a circular pattern for my title and added a cute heart covered with the beautiful Kaisercraft sparkly tape in the kit. Be sure to check out the video to see how I do this!

For the second layout I used a sketch from Pagemaps. I love starting with a sketch and finding creative ways to layer. 

The pretty gold foil diecuts are perfect to add colour to if you want so I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to colour in the flowers and leaves for a lovely effect.

I used a stitched circle diecut to cut a sentiment from one of the 12x12 patterned papers and then used my Zig Markers again to colour in the leaves. I added some black sparkly letters from my stash to the beautiful gold Thickers from the kit to complete my title.

I really love the little wooden framed stickers included with the kit! I layered one over the sweet girl diecut and added some sequins and a diecut star covered with the Kaisercraft sparkly blue tape from the kit. The tiny enamel dots in the sticker pack are just right for adding an extra touch to the page!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out the previous blog post HERE for a closeups and photos of the whole Kit Reveal! You can find the kit at the Scrap Shotz store here, and pick up any fun Kit Add-Ons here. Have an awesome, crafty weekend friends!
