Hello friends! Karla here today with another scrapbook page following along with our Scraplift theme – and this week it’s the amazing Kat Benjamin or KraftyKat as she’s also known! I love her clean style, and I love how she coordinates the products she’s using! She also makes awesome pocket pages <3
I decided to scraplift Kat’s page Hey Handsome – here’s a look at it:
I really liked the layers of paper she used and the striking black title, so even though I went with a totally different colour scheme I followed the basic layout. I really love scraplifting – I think it makes you try different ideas and styles that you might not otherwise, and you just might find something you love! I chose an older collection I had in my stash – Jubilee by My Mind’s Eye and the awesome NEW sequin mixes from the SpiegelMom Scraps Store: Star Spangled, Girly Glitter and Ferris Wheel!
I used a 1″ circle punch to cut out coordinating papers and placed them on in a similar way to Kat’s page. I even pop-dotted one to give it a little extra dimension. I pulled colours from my photo and paper when choosing the sequins and I grouped them around each circle.
I really liked the black title on Kat’s page, so I decided to use one of the acetate overlays from this collection, backed by a piece of patterned paper. I added a strip of the arrow paper to add some colour above the title and used a chipboard sentiment to add dimension. A few more sequins above and below the title follow Kat’s layout, and I added my journaling by first penciling in straight lines and writing with a Faber Castel pen.
Here’s a look at the new sequin mixes I used today – Star Spangled, Girly Glitter and Ferris Wheel! The names of these mixes just make me happy!!

I love up-cycling those pretty boxes that you get when you buy a perfumes and many other beauty products.
This box was gorgeous on it’s own – all sparkly and grey so all I had to do to make this box more me was patterned paper, a fabulous large gold doily, stickers and the beautiful Sunny Smiles sequins.
I just had to add another gold doily on the inside just because! 🙂
Have a fab Friday – Anna Sigga! 🙂
Happy Fall my scrappy friends!! Welcome to your forth stop on Memory Works Fall Preview Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from the very sweet & wildly creative CHRISTY MUSACK over at Studio C. Wasn’t her preview of the new Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic just beautiful! I must have that entire collection.. just like her Neapolitan from the last catalog! Thank you so much Christy.
I’m previewing one of my all time favorite manufacturers, My Minds Eye. I absolutely fall in love with their papers every time they are released. Their Lavender line is no exception.
I used the new Lavendar theme set, layered stickers, and brads, along with a new Fancy Pants Stencil. I had to add some favorites from my stash as well: ZVA bling, Stickles, a Jenni Bowin calendar (cut off at the top), my fav burlap string behind the layered the flower sticker, washi tapes, a Studio Calcio Wood Veneer Camera (MME Brad in the middle to create the lens), Recollections pink flower brads and a few sweet little paper roses.
See the brown, flower shaped chipboard piece behind the photo? That is the packaging from a Jillibean Soup Corugated Chipboard from a couple seasons ago. Save that packaging friends!! UpCycle it and use your creativity to encorporate it into your projects.
Below is one of the new Fancy Pants Stencils. I love them!! I backed it with the pink & white chevron paper. You also see some Mr. Huey’s ink spots on my layouts.. another must have in my scrapbooking supplies.
You can see the glittery areas on the paper below. I used my Stickles to highlight that very pretty, pre-printed floral design. I couldn’t help but give it a little boost since it is next to the bling. I punched the edges of the pink and white chevron at the corner of my photo with an EK Success edge punch. This added a much more delicate feel to my layout.

My lovely cousin Mandy and her Hubby Chris had their daughter, Scarlett, Baptized on Easter Sunday. It was so beautiful and meaningful, as Scarlett was the first Baptism in the newly blessed Baptismal pool. I have the utmost honor of being Scarlett’s God Mother, so I wanted to create a keepsake for Scarlett and her beautiful family. I used a 12×12″ shadow box frame for Scarlett’s gift. I love using the shadow box frames from Hobby Lobby, as they allow plenty of room between the glass and the project for lots of dimensional embellishments. The frames are $19.99 and are by Paper Studio (Hobby Lobby’s brand). They go on sale often or you can use your coupon on it.
Hobby Lobby products: My Minds Eye Lost & Found paper, Prima Flowers &
Pearls & pleated pink ribbon.
Other products: Maya Road Trinket Pins, “Delicate Baby” embelly (Soft Spoken?), Tim Holtz Lavish Trims (white sheer ruffle trim & mini rosette), American Crafts white rosette trim, Pop Dots & mini roses I won on the Let’s Scrap blog hop in February.
I tucked the mini roses in between the pretty white Prima Flowers.
I glued the Tim Holtz sheer ruffle trim behind the MME papers to create a soft frame.
There I go again, wetting down the edges of paper and rolling it to distress it up..
…. adding ink optional.
