Hello! It’s Karla here today with a cute baby page, and I’m scraplifting the most awesome Kelly Barron! She’s been our Guest Designer here all month long, and I just love her style!! Here’s the page she designed and you can see my scraplifted layout below. All the info on her pretty page can be found on her blog post HERE.
I’m really trying to get more of Erica’s baby pics into her album, so I grabbed these cute (well I understand if not everyone finds them cute 😉 ) pics of her with food on her head. Yup, you know it’s true love when you can watch hours of your baby doing the same thing over and over and never get tired of it, or you see her with food on her head and, well, you just have to take a photo – or three, lol! Erica, who is 5 now, even helped me do the stitching across the corners with the sewing machine. I grabbed some of the new Lisa’s Starry Night and Morning Glow sequin mixes and the Gold Burlap String to coordinate with my page.
The older Echo Park Made From Scratch collection was just right for this page, and you can see how wonderfully the textured vintage Architextures potholder sticker from 7gyspies fits in with it!
I loved the way Kelly used some smaller stickers as part of her title and found some in my stash that would work for me too. I added another of the Architextures mason jar stickers alongside some stickers from the EP collection.
I coloured the sweet little scarecrow digi images from Bugaboo Stamps and added some glittery Stickles before popping them up with foam dots on this pretty Echo Park paper – A Perfect Autumn. It’s one of my fav fall collections this year!
I love the way this little guy is peeking out of the circle! The Thanksgiving sentiment from a Pretty Cute stamps set was perfect for the banner tag.
On the back of the boxes I added a little name tag diecut from a Stitched Tag Die from Your Next Stamp and stamped with a pretty scroll stamp from the Pink & Main Thankful set.
I’ve created a process video to show you how I made these fun little boxes – You’ll also get to see what’s inside them!! They are quick and easy and would also work great for little stocking stuffers!! You can check out the video HERE or click below.
Hi friends! Karla here with a lovely Fall card ready to give out for Thanksgiving! Here in Canada it falls on this Monday coming. Seriously, I don’t know how all my US friends can wait till November 😉 We are having friends and family over on Sunday for a big turkey dinner and I definitely wanted to get some cards ready to give out. Fall is my favourite time of year, and I am really loving the Echo Park ‘A Perfect Autumn’ papers. I grabbed some of the new Peachy Keeny and Morning Glow sequin mixes to add shiny sequiny goodness! Those tiny peach flowers are so adorable!!
I combined the pretty pumpkin digi stamps from Craftin’ Desert Divas, printed on kraft cardstock, with a sentiment stamp from Pretty Cute Stamps and some pretty scrolls from Pink & Main stamped with Distress Oxide Ink. A Spellbinders diecut created a pretty panel for my focal image.
Inside, I used a couple stamps from a wonderful Pink & Main stamp set – Thankful. I love the Autumn Blessings sentiment!
I started off taking a piece of Bristol cardstock and smooshing my Versamark Ink through the stencil that came with the awesome Tim Holtz stamp and stencil set. I used some clear iridescent embossing powder to add a clear resist on the background and then sponged on my Distress Oxide Inks from dark to light. I dripped a few water droplets on the water reactive ink to add some cool splotches! I layered on a chipboard label covered with Emerald Creek Northern Lights embossing powder and tied it to the stencilled background before layering over some pretty Lawn Fawn Knit Picky patterned paper.
The deer were stamped with Versamark and then embossed with Emerald Creek Charred Gold embossing powder. I love the cool gold and black melted effect this powder gives!
Here’s a look at the inside – I love the font on the stamps and how just adding a few sequins inside really makes it special.
Happy Thursday!! Karla back today with a scrappy springtime layout. This week we are scraplifting our awesome Guest Designer Jenn Gagne. Be sure to check out Tuesday’s blog post where she shared an amazing traveler’s notebook project! I’ve decided to use her beautiful Easter layout as inspiration for my scrapbook project today. I just loved the pretty colours and those gorgeous doilies, and I knew this would be a perfect layout to add the On Pointe, Aquarius, Morning Glow and Painted Gardens Sequin Mixes! Here’s a look at Jenn’s layout:
I picked up a lovely PhotoPlay collection over the weekend and I couldn’t wait to use the springtime papers included. I’m really impressed with the PhotoPlay papers I’m seeing! I started off by adding Distress Oxide Inks to my splat mat and spritzing with Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold Mist. I put the white doilies directly onto the inky mist and pulled them through it to add some shimmery watercolour. I used 3 different colours for the doilies and then dried them with a heat gun.
I used the same inky mists to add some watercolours and splats directly to my white cardstock background before laying down the doilies and then adding my photo matted with the pretty PhotoPlay papers.
I stamped some butterflies, words and scrolls on the background with Distress Oxide Inks and then added some flowers, gems and more butterflies popped up with foam dots to give the layout some more dimension. Then, of course, the fun part – adding the sequins!! This just makes the layout come alive!
Hi friends!! Karla here today with a pretty painted canvas featuring the beautiful SpiegelMom Scraps Aquarius sequin mix. Recently, I went to Michaels with my girls and they were doing a drop in painting class where you purchased a canvas and they provided the paints. You could paint whatever you liked, so I decided to paint my favourite….Coffee!! I found a picture I liked on Pinterest and just hand sketched it onto my canvas, and then added some paint. It was fun, I didn’t overthink it, and I love how it turned out!
I love the oranges and blues in these sequins! I used Glossy Accents to adhere my sequins to the canvas, and the Silhouette PIck Me Up Tool made it quick and easy to add them. This sign makes me smile every time I look at it!
Here’s a look at the gorgeous colours and sequins in the Aquarius sequin mix! I love how it just adds the details to the canvas that makes it pop!
Here’s a look at what my girlies painted – and how the canvas looked before adding the fantastic Aquarius sequin mix! Amie painted a sunset, and Erica painted popsicles with ears – because who says popsicles can’t have ears??
Hello friends! Karla here today with a quick and easy Thank You card! I don’t know about you, but I always find myself in need of an extra Thank You card – so that’s something I need to make an effort to make more of. This month, our SMS theme is ‘Artsy’ – so the perfect opportunity! When I think of artsy, the first thing that comes to mind is watercolour, so this watercolour paper pad I recently picked up at Michaels was the perfect thing to pair with this month’s beautiful new sequin mixes – Painted Gardens and On Pointe.
I cut out the Thank You sentiment from the cut apart sheet included in the paper pad and added Distress Oxide Ink around the edge as well as a hand drawn stitching line. I found a few stickers that went well and then stamped on the circle stamps from the Wild Whisper Out & About stamp set. This created the perfect area to place these beautiful sequins!
Here’s a look at these beautiful sequin mixes –Painted Gardens and On Pointe. Inside, I stamped the Wild Whisper circle stamp again and added more sequins. I just love adding sequins to the inside of my cards!
