June Scrap Shotz Kit - Fall Family Photo Layout

Hello again! Karla back today to share another layout using the awesome Scrap Shotz June 2019 Scrapbook Kit and available Add-Ons featuring the Heidi Swapp Wolf Pack Collection! For this layout I'm using a sketch from a Scrapbookin' Adventures Sketch Class and a Fall family photo that was taken at Fish Creek Park in Calgary, Alberta. As you can see, this collection works well with any season!

I started out by layering a piece of the coordinating cardstock on a piece of the beautiful Heidi Swapp grey and white triangle paper. Next I cut some realistic tree paper and added that to the background along with a piece of birch paper. I really love the neutral colour palette of this line!

Next, I added stitching with my sewing machine, my matted photo, washi tape from the kit and the beautiful coordinating Thickers in the kit for a title.

I added a cluster of washi, tags cut from the patterned paper, ephemera from the kit and one of the Embossed Stickers, which are so cool! The tiny puffy stickers are an Add-On and can be purchased separately.

I added some twine from my stash and some journaling on one of the ephemera pieces. The Ephemera Pack in the kit is full of gorgeous cardstock, acetate and vellum pieces!

A small vellum sentiment from the ephemera pack is attached with a little matte medium and finishes off the layout.

Be sure to head over to the Scrap Shotz Store to check out the June 2019 Scrapbook Kit and available Add-Ons and start scrapping your beautiful photos! Have a wonderful summer friends!

Completed Colour Burst Trio Cards

Hi Crafty Friends!

Happy to see you here and I am revealing the cards I created from the card front/backgrounds in the THIS post.

Let me refresh your memory with the color burst panels:

On to the first card:

The white portion was masked off with 1" painters tape and I coloured in the embossed images with the Ken Oliver Color Burst Trio Ocean Waves. The sentiment is stamped from the Altenew Spring Fling stamp set. The entire panel is then matted on a white card base.


I chose a leaf image from the stamp set and combined it with the Gina K wreath builder stencil to create this card:

Here are the supplies used for this card.

All the images were stamped withVersafine Black Onyx ink, stamp placed within the wreath builder stencil to create the 'wreath' and the card stock is turned within the stencil

Here is the completed "wreath" which was then covered with clear embossing powder and heat set.

Stamped image is now heat embossed.

Feel free to leave any questions about these projects here, thanks for stopping by and taking a look!

June Scrap Shotz Kit - Be Wild & Free Layout

Hello! Karla back today to share another layout using the awesome Scrap Shotz June 2019 Scrapbook Kit and available Add-Ons featuring the Heidi Swapp Wolf Pack Collection! Today, I'm working with the left side of a double page layout sketch from the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine June Sketchy Challenge. I love doing grid layouts and love the extra white space on this layout. These photos are from a summer hike and coordinate with the double page layout I did here.

I used a piece of the white cardstock from the kit and added a triangular strip of patterned paper to the top of the layout. Because I wanted to bring out the purple in the photos, I decided to stencil on some purple Distress Oxides through a Studio Katia grid stencil. I then added some splatters of Distress Mica Spray by removing the cover and tapping the nozzle.

Next, I layered on my photos matted with cardstock from the Kit and added some strips of paper to go along with the sketch. 

I used the coordinating Thickers and the Embossed Stickers to create a title, adding a little star from the Ephemera Pack as well.

I fussy cut some trees from one of the patterned papers and layered them with more ephemera under the bottom left photo.

Using a grid ruler I penciled in some lines to write my journaling directly on the white cardstock background. The puffy stickers are an Add-On and add embellishment along with the enamel dots from the kit.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to check out the June 2019 Scrapbook Kit and available Add-Ons in the Shop. I know you'll enjoy documenting your summer adventures with it! Have fun creating friends!
