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!
