January Scrapbook Layout ~ Strength

Good Morning :)
I am back today to share the first feature layout of 2017.
All the kit details can be found HERE.

I liked the rustic shabby chic feel of the wood paper so used this as the background for the layout.
I distressed all the edges creating a more wood like feel to it.

The photo is of my nephew having a go at removing a rather stubborn tree stump it took a lot of effort to get those out!

Ater creating a paper cluster for the photo to sit on I flicked white and black Gesso over the page.

The Alpha stickers, word sticker and enamel dots are from my stash. I used quite a lot of enamel dots!

I used the embellishments in the kit to create one main embellishment cluster.
I have no problem using flowers and lace on a masculine layout!

That's all from me today :)
Do you use flowers on a masculine layout?
Thanks for stopping by have a great day!

January Page Kit

Good Morning & Happy New Year!
I'm starting 2017 with a lovely masculine Page kit featuring papers from Kaisercraft's Barber Shoppe collection.
The kit is called Strength and available HERE.

The papers are mainly masculine but could easily work with most themes. They include dominoes, distress wood, mustaches and silhouette men.
All papers are 12x12" and doublesided.

The embellishments in the kit include 2 white paper flowers and a length of lace which gives the kit a feminine touch.

January kits are available from the store HERE along with a few past kits.

There are a few spaces available in the Page Kit Club. See all the details HERE.

I will be back tomorrow with the January layout details.
Thanks for stopping by have a great day!

December Page Kit - Merry and Bright Layout

Good Morning :)
I am back today to share the December feature layout Merry and Bright.
All the kit details can be found on the post below and kits are available HERE

The layout uses products in both the main Page Kit and the Add-On kit.
I've used a cheeky photo of my boys taken in 2009, there was a lot of colour in the photo so I changed it to black and white using Paintshop Pro.

I added a splattering of Fired Brick Distress ink to the crisp white cardstock background which still leaves lots of white space but gave it that finishing touch.

The kit includes a selection of lovely printed die cuts (will vary between kits) I have used one of the journal cards and the gift stack both of which have pretty foil details.
I've used a few of the stickers from the Add-On Kit and a few enamel dots from my stash.

I think my favourite element in the kit has to be the gorgeous decorative clip! The clips vary between the kits and are all gorgeous! The little elf was just perfect for my naughty elves LOL!
I have enough goodies left to decorate my planner or make a few Christmas cards (I really need to get some cards made!!)

I am teaching at the C4E crop tomorrow we will be making a cute Mini Wreath Christmas tree decoration using sparkly net and macrame rings!
Are you crafting this weekend?
Have a fabulous weekend thanks for stopping by!

Little Pumpkin Layout

Good Morning :)
I am back today with the November Page Kit Layout. 
Page kits and Add on kits are available from the C4E store HERE
Kit details can also be found in the previous post

I love the papers in this months kit's it's hard to single out a favourite one!

I started with a 4x6" photo and created layers of pretty papers to compliment it. The blue in the papers was a perfect match for the hint of blue in the photo.

I wanted the decorative clip to sit nicely on the layout so I raised a layer of paper using 3d foam dots.

I stamped the little fox on to cardstock using Stazon ink and coloured him with Prismacolor pencils.

I have a little paper left over to decorate my planner or make a couple of autumn cards, maybe even another layout :)

I like a few colouring mediums Distress inks, watercolours and Copics, my favourite at the moment are the Prismacolor pencils.
What's your current favourite colouring medium?

Thanks for stopping by have a great weekend

Perfect Fit Layout

Good Morning :)
I am back today to share the October Page kit layout Perfect Fit.
Kits are available HERE along with a few remaining Add-on kits.

The You Got This 12x12" pattern paper in this kit determined the design of the layout.
I wanted the gorgeous floral image as part of the design so I cut this piece first, the centers of the flowers have gold foil detail so had to feature on the layout.

The layout came together quite quick after that decision :)

I chose a journal card from the 12x12" sheet which fit with my pre wedding/sewing theme and added diecuts from the kit, a brad (Add-on kit), sequins and two word stickers to complete the cluster.

The "Honey" girl was added with 3D foam dots and a small cluster of diecuts, brad, sequins and word stickers where added behind to frame the photo.

The Chipboard scissors from the Add-on kit were a perfect finish to the layout combining the sewing/pre wedding theme.

The sewing/wedding theme is quite a normal theme to have for a layout, most people will have dress fitting photos to scrap, but what is the most unusual theme combination you have scrapped?

Have a great day thanks for stopping by

3x4" Journal Card Mini Album

Good Morning :)
After I had made a layout and decorated my planner using the August Page kit I found I had a number of gorgeous 3x4" journal cards left over from the 12x12" sheet. I wanted to use them but not in the usual way (layout, card or planner) so I made a quick mini concertina album.
It was super quick to make and in addition to the lovely journal cards I added a little left over paper, die cuts and stickers and now have a cute mini about my boys.

I cut a 4x12" strip of white cardstock, then scored and folded it at 3" intervals to make 8 spaces to add photos and journaling.

I kept the embellishments flat so it wouldn't bulk out too much.

The photos are some random photos of each of the boys ....

..... including our newest boy Marley

These journal cards were just too pretty to sit in my stash!

Have you got your August Page kit yet?
Grab your HERE while stocks last.

Thanks for stopping by have a lovely weekend
Michele :)
