Adhesive Winner & Creating on Busy Backgrounds

Happy Monday all!  Yes, I said happy Monday.  It’s raining and I’m off work today to that = crafty time!  Last weekend I was very blessed to spend a couple days with my best friend Jenn without any kids!!  I missed them dearly of course, but it was incredibly refreshing to just hang with her and scrapbook!  I created 10 layouts!  Here’s the first one I’m sharing from our special girls weekend.

My challenge with this beautiful Maggie Holmes DIY paper was to create a layout without covering up too much of the words.  I love the message in this paper and I definitely can relate to it with my crazy busy life!  To create with this particular busy background paper, I decided to use one 4×4 photo from my Instagram feed and add some simple layering and minimal embellishments.

If you remember a while ago, I was also doing a comparison between adhering sequins with Aileen’s Tacky Glue and Scrapbook Adhesive DOTZ.  As much I like the tacky glue for adhering ribbon and wood veneers, the glue dots by Scrapbook Adhesives is my winner for attaching sequins, hands down!  The sequins adhered with tacky glue could be popped off when the paper was bent, such as when a page is being turned in your scrapbook album.  It’s your lucky week because all the adhesives in my shop are 20% off with a special coupon code!!  Just use STICKIT20 to get your 20% off at check out!!

Gift Wrapping with SpiegelMom Scraps

Hey, everyone!  Kat here!  When Eric and I got married 3 years ago, our wedding colors were pink and orange.  Every year I try to mimic the wedding colors by wrapping his anniversary gift in pink and orange.  He usually gives me pink and orange flowers, so it’s a mutual thing :)

This year I turned to my SpiegelMom Scraps supplies to wrap my gift.  Here’s what I came up with:

@mayartsribbon @studiocalico @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegelhoff @kraftykat9, #spiegelmomscraps #etsy #katbenjamin #shippingtag #diecut #doily #ribbon #mayartsribbon #woodveneer #people #studiocalico #miniclothespin

I wrapped the gift in the pretty pink ribbon first and then made a cluster of embellishments, including a shipping tag, doily and some wood veneers.  I even painted the wooden people pink and orange in an effort to be a bit clever!

 Supplies from the store include:

-Light Pink & Cream Checked Ribbon

-Normandy Lace Doily

-Studio Calico Wood Veneer People

-Large Shipping Tag

-Studio Calico Heart & Arrows Wood Veneer

I love that not only are the products from the store great for paper crafting, but they also work perfectly for creating pretty packages!  Do you use your scrap supplies to wrap gifts?

Thanks for joining us today!

Adding Contrast with Cork!

Hello everyone!

I cannot tell you how awesome it is to be creating recently!  I’ve continued to be super busy stocking and packing new goodies for my Etsy Shop and designing some more fun stuff coming in May.  I’m also continuing to burn through my scraps of left over kits and other purchases I made before Two Peas in a Bucket closed their cyber doors.. so sad!

And so now I digress to tonight’s layout!  I used a hodgepodge of papers here from Echo Park, Dear Lizzy and another I’m not sure of anymore!!  When I mix up a few different papers, sometimes I find it easier to scrap with a black and white photo.  This doesn’t get much easier that a simple filter in Instagram!  I have to say I have the best little models :)  Here’s a picture I snapped with my iPhone of Abby ‘reading’ us a bedtime story a couple weeks ago.

I’m always excited to create on a white card stock background too!  A clean slate.  This allows me to really stretch those scraps of patterned paper to the max!  Take a closer look at the white card stock….

Yes, you see it now don’t you :)  I used a fun Kesi Art stencil with some Gesso and Distress Ink mixed together. I love how this turned out, just a hint of texture in the background without being overwhelming!  Here are a couple more pics.

Another thing I really love to work into my layouts is some contrast.  It doesn’t have to be black on white or anything that drastic.. but just some nice contrast.  That’s where my love of cork and wood veneer comes into play. I’ve created a few new cork embellishments (some of which are self adhesive) like these fun clouds which will be in my shop this weekend! 

Here are a couple more close ups for ya’ll.  That adorable little wood veneer bicycle is from Chic Tags and those cute cork chevrons are in my shop as well.

Dear Lizzy Wood Veneer Background

Happy April everyone!  I’m super excited to be back creating this month. I took a good month off a to rebuild my Etsy shop, update my blog, make some new connections and create some of my own embellishments! I’m very excited to show you a couple of the die cut CORK sets in action today!  

I created this layout using a this beautiful Dear Lizzy wood veneer die cut background, which took me awhile to decide how to use it exactly.  I wanted some contrast so I mounted it onto Heidi Swapp September Skies collection paper with tacky glue and let it dry.  Then, I simply put my scraps to good use and grabbed a couple of my Fiskars heart paper punches and went to town punching!

Next, I chose this photo from our daughter Sari’s 8th birthday party in February (no this does NOT mean I’m caught up by any means!  I totally scrap out of order!)  I layered the Dear Lizzy alpha stickers right over my photo and underlined them in one of my new cork die cut heart pieces.  This makes more of a statement to me and adds some fun texture and contrast.  Here are a few more close ups.

Here are a few of my favorite elements from a different viewpoint.  You’ll notice that even though I’ve mounted the wood veneer onto a patterned paper, I still popped up a few of the hearts and the pink and gold butterfly!  I absolutely LOVE my foam adhesive by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L!  It’s the best!

Watercoloring Wood Veneers by Louise!

Hello everyone!  We have a sweet and short post by Design Team Sparkler Louise today and I just love how she colored these awesome Studio Calico wood veneers and the pretty little hints of gold.  Louise makes be want to break out my gelatos. Here she is!

I have had a lot going on over the last few weeks so it was nice to get a card made again :)  I started with a white cardstock base which I water colored using Metallic Melon Gelato and a water brush.  Once the gelato was dry, I sprayed with some dye inks in pink, white and gold.

I then coloured my veneer using the melon gelato and gold dye ink plus a brush.  I stamped the arrows along the bottom using Flight of the arrows from Close to my Heart in pink dye ink.  The always and forever was originally one piece but I cut it to fit on the A5 card.  I sprinkled the Raspberry Dream Sequins on the card then adhered them where they had fallen.  I matted the card front onto raspberry cardstock then to the plain cardstock base to finish.

Highlighting the Green Chevron Washi!

Hi, everyone!!  Kat here today to show off another one of my favorite products from the SMS store.  Last month, I shared the awesomeness of the gold doilies.  This month, I want to share how great the green chevron washi can be.  Since I always associate the color green with the month of March, I figured it was a good product to feature.

This page came together very quickly for me.  I just measured off the top 5 inches of my cardstock and covered it in the washi tape.  I alternated the direction of the chevrons, which ended up creating an optical illusion of sorts (seriously, stare at it for a while…it’s a bit trippy!)  That was a happy accident!  Once I was done with that, I added simple embellishments, a few paint drips and then I was done.  This layout came together in about 20 minutes!
