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!

Product Reveal - Carta Bella, Tim Holtz and Pink Fresh

Hi friends! Karla here today to share some fun new products at the Scrap Shotz store! If you haven't see the amazing Carta Bella Gone Camping collection, you are definitely going to want to check it out. I've been having so much fun using it to scrapbook my camping layouts from last year, and I'm already looking forward to documenting our summertime fun with it this year too! You can check out the Reveal Video below to see all these goodies closeup. Here's a look at the layouts I created with the Gone Camping collection, the Tim Holtz 3-D Texture Fades Lumber Embossing Folder from Sizzix and the Pink Fresh Puffy Alpha Stickers.

For my first layout I started off by using the Creative Scrapbooker June Sketchy Challenge. I layered the amazing Carta Bella papers, cut aparts, ephemera and stamps to create a scrapbook page to document the fun we had around the campfire roasting marshmallows. Relaxing around the campfire at the end of the day is definitely my favourite thing about camping 😉 

I love how the papers all coordinate with an outdoorsy feel! These would be perfect for a masculine card or scrapbook page as well. I coordinated the alphabet stickers with the stickers from the 12x12 sticker set that comes in the paper pack to create a mini title.

There are such great sentiments on the sticker sheet as well as in the stamp set. You could create some really fun cards with these too!

I created some DIY embellishments using the stamps and some diecuts from my stash. I love using Distress Oxides to stamp with! The stamps are a great quality and stamp beautifully.

I used the Campfire Marshmallow card from the cut apart sheet as a title and layered it with coordinating papers and a couple pieces of cardstock embossed with the cool 3D Texture Fade folder. I used my coloured pencils to colour up the stamps and layer them on to further embellish.

For the second page I tucked some cards from the cut apart sheets and my photos into a pocket page protector. The 3D folder again created a fun and woodsy journaling card, perfect for any outdoorsy theme!

The postcard journaling card was perfect for writing on. I really love the vintage look of this collection!

How cool is the 'Grandma's Camping Salad' recipe card from the cut apart sheet?!! I layered stickers and ephemera along with paper and those pretty alphas to create a title card.

I added a stamp to the Great Outdoors card for a little extra detail and I taped the Camping tab to the outside of my pocket.

Here's a look at the Reveal Video where you can check out everything I'm using close up!!

Here's all the goodies I'm sharing-
Carta Bella Gone Camping Paper Pack, Ephemera and Designer Stamps
Pink Fresh Puffy Alpha Stickers

Here's a look at some of the samples I created with the Tim Holtz 3-D Texture Fades Lumber Embossing Folder from Sizzix

And I had a lot of fun stamping the Carta Bella Gone Camping Designer Stamps and creating some awesome embellishments!
