Scrapping with December Kit Club!

 Hello friends! Karla back today with a layout using the gorgeous December Kit featuring 49 and Market Plum Grove!! This is a lovely collection with a fall vibe and amazing florals! You can check out the kit and Add-Ons, or pick up the Plum Grove Collection piece by piece in the shop!

I created this layout Live in one of our Thursday Live Demos! You can check that video out below!! I also used the December Sketchy Challenge from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, changing it up to add an ephemera cluster in place of a photo on the right! 

I love this photo of my 3 wonderful girls!! The chipboard words are awesome as titles and there are so many pieces in the ephemera pack!

I used the rub-ons on the background, layered over a Southern Ridge Trading Company Stencil - Geo 9- and a ticket stamp from the Crayons Journaling Set from Elizabeth Craft Designs

I layered on ephemera clusters and added journaling right on the layout! 

Here's a look at the Facebook Live Video where you can get a look at the full kit and the process creating this layout! 

Just a reminder, our Facebook Lives will continue January 5th at 1 pm MST!
 I hope you have an amazing Christmas, and Happy Crafting!

Garden Shoppe November Kit Layouts

 Today I have two layouts using the fabulous November kit featuring the Paige Evans "Garden Shoppe" Collection

For this layout, I was inspired by the December sketch in the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Facebook Sketchy group

I began by using the Yukon Gold cardstock to matte my photos. Then I used a variety of papers and a stencil to cover the page. 

The pink border in the middle is washi tape. The rest of the layout is full of Thicker stickers, layered stickers, ephemera and stickers from the awesome sticker book

The second layout features one of the papers in the kit. I cut the center out of the paper to create a border. Then I used the washi tape to cover the seam between the two papers. 

The paper actually has the stitching drawn on it, so I stitched over it to add some texture. 

The title matches perfectly with the stitching and come with the Thicker alpha set. The hearts in the center are cut from the paper that I removed from the center. They are actually covering up the words "Merry Christmas" as this was our card from last year. Shhh, don't tell anyone! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Garden Shoppe Interactive Card

Hello everyone! I saw a really cool card on Instagram @rippels_paperlover and thought I would give it a try for my daughter's birthday. It was a big hit! I've put together a tutorial using the Paige Evans "Garden Shoppe" Collection in the November kit

Here is a video to show how it works:

I made a cut file on my Silhouette so I can easily make another card in the future. Here is a picture with the dimensions so you can make it yourself using a crafting knife or cutting machine.

Next, I scored the folds into the card by using a palette knife and my paper cutter. 

The scores should be 3 inches long vertically and 1.5 inches horizontally. 

Here is how to fold the card. Step 1 - Bring the left side towards the middle and let the center flip around.

Step 2: Repeat on the right side. 

Step 3: Flip the paper over.
Step 4: Bend the square piece at the top backwards so it now looks like the picture below.

Step 5: Repeat with the square at the bottom flipping it towards the back. It should now look like the picture below.

Step 6: Now you can open up the card and lay it flat on the table. I marked all the sections with the word "up" so I could easily cut the papers that go on top in the right direction. 

Step 7: Flip the paper over and write the word "up" on each section. However, be careful, some sections are upside down. 

Step 8: Begin cutting papers to adhere to the card. I found that by cutting a second card on my machine and then cutting out each section, I could use those pieces as stencils and trace them. 

Side 1: I used one piece of paper and cut it into sections. Then I made a title with the alpha Thickers. I also used some Thickers for the leaves and hearts. There are a few stickers from the sticker book. The sections are outlined with washi tape. Finally, the flowers are from the die cut pack

Side 2: I used the button paper and added the title with Thickers.

Side 3: This is what the card looks like with the top sections flipped back.

Side 4: I used the alphas from the sticker book for the title. I used some die cuts to decorate and embroidery thread to make bows. The flowers are from the layered sticker pack.

There you have it! I hope you have a chance to try it out!

Garden Shoppe-Paige Evans November Kit!


Rosie back with a few more projects crafted from the November Kit!

I die cut patterned paper with a Honey Bee Oval Thin Frames die and then pieced the background together, popping up alternate frames with two layers of cardstock.

I then fussy cut a group of blooms from the same paper and adhered to the centre of the oval with foam adhesive. The sentiment is from the die cut ephemera.

This desk calendar was super easy to make using the Taylored Expressions Mini Tear Off Calendar. There are 10 calendars in the set so perfect to make and give as gifts!

I added the stickers to white card stock and then fussy cut leaving a thin white border. The calendar is matted on patterned paper, then kit card stock. The calendar base is made from recycled cardboard and covered with patterned paper.

Every kit comes with 6 coordinating card stocks so I pulled out the Honey Bee die again and die cut ovals from each colour of card stock. Then I got to work piecing the frames together alternating colours and glueing them to a piece of copy paper. Once the full oval was completed I fussy cut around the oval and then trimmed one in half and another into quarters.

I centred this on patterned paper and added a punched border with foam adhesive along the bottom. 

I ended up with three sets of these ovals so I had lots to work with!

You can see the ovals, which I've trimmed, laid out on this layout. To start, I gutted (cut out the centre) of the Garden Shoppe Acetate and then layered it over white card stock.

I used the Garden Shoppe Mini Stencils Kit Add On to create the 3 envelopes, top left, centre and bottom right. These are a perfect fit for a gift card so just trace and cut.

I've embellished the layout with kit stickers, die cuts and Thickers and some Studio Katia Onyx Crystals.

I hope you've enjoyed these projects and I would love to see your kit projects!

Garden Shoppe! Paige Evans - November Scrapbook Kit! Pt.2

 Rosie back with another layout using the fabulous November kit!

I used the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine November sketch to scrapbook these photos from the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival in 2021.

The title rose gold Thickers are from my stash and the smaller letters are the kit stickers.

I've also edged the white card stock background with kit washi tape. The floral paper is paper #2 and I've also matted it on black card stock before adhering to the base, the base patterned paper is paper #22.

My favourite thing about this layout is the journaling which I've handwritten and used kit thickers and stickers as words and phrases within the journaling.

After I finished the layout I realized I didn't write any description about the photos themselves.
Easy problem to solve, I wrote the details of the photos on a piece of card stock and then adhered that to the back side of the layout.

I'll be back again with a few more kit projects!

Thanks for stopping by!

Garden Shoppe! Paige Evans - November Kit!

This month's kit features the fabulous Garden Shoppe by Paige Evans! 

It's a fun and vibrant Fall line in classic Paige style, with lovely florals and happy colours! I challenged myself to use the main kit items only!

I love all the patterns and had a hard time choosing which ones to use but I narrowed it down to #6 and #11.

I cut 2" x 2" squares, turned each on the diagonal and scored at the 2" mark on my score board. I then turned the square and scored the other side on the 2" mark as well.

I then folded on the score line on both sides creating the shape below.

Then it was time to play with the pattern and the image below is the arrangement I liked the best.

I glued the edges that overlapped with liquid adhesive and then adhered all the pieces on paper #17.

I would normally use a larger photo on a 12x12 layout but I wanted to show off the background so I trimmed a photo down and centred it on the lower third of the page.

The photo is offset over the edge of a journal card from the ephemera pack and then popped up with foam adhesive.
I also grouped kit Thickers and ephemera around the photo. The phrase over the top of the photo mat is a sticker which has a clear background so I placed it on white card stock, fussy cut and adhered with foam adhesive.

I die cut hearts from paper #4 and popped them up with foam adhesive and also added hearts from the kit Thickers.
I finished the layout off creating a border around all four edges with the kit washi tape.

I hope you've enjoyed the details of this layout and I'll be back with more projects later!

Carta Bella Welcome Fall Layouts Part 2

Hello crafty friends! Today I have two more layouts with the Carta Bella "Welcome Fall" collection. This collection is all about leaves, pumpkins, oranges and yellows and don't forget the plaid!

My first layout was inspired by the November sketch in the Creative Scrapbooker Sketchy Facebook Group

I couldn't figure out a long title so I used some stickers and chipboard to make titles horizontally. Otherwise, I stuck to the sketch pretty well. After cutting out all the papers and pictures, I added a border to my pictures to make them the same size as the middle card. I used a white pen to draw the stitching border and to journal. 

Lots of chipboard and cardstock stickers were used to embellish the page. I used some foam dots on the back of some of the stickers to pop them off the page.

My second layout was fun to make! 

I fussy cut all those leaves from one piece of paper. Good thing there was something good to watch on Netflix at the same time. I used some glue dots to stick them all down. It worked really well because the entire leaf isn't stuck to the paper so it looks more layered. I could also move the leaves later if I didn't like their placement. 

This time I used some puffy stickers and ephemera for the embellishments. 

PS - no children were hurt during the sword fight:)

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a scrappy day!
