love the woodgrain…

By Audrey Yeager

March 18, 2015

One of my FAVORITE pieces of paper in the March kit is this woodgrain piece by Webster’s Pages.  I love the colors and the ombre effect.  I’m not much of a pastel person, but this was just so pretty!  I dug out a fall photo with a “woodsy” theme to use with the paper.

I picked some papers out from the My Mind’s Eye “On Trend” 6×6 paper pad from the add on kit.  The greens and the peaches were perfect matches for the colors of the woodgrain.

I also added some of the white rub-ons to areas of the page (which didn’t photograph well), and to add more white, I die cut some leaves with my Cameo.  I also did a few dark green leaves to stick around, too.  Under this cluster, I used the flowery acetate die cut from the On Trend ephemera pack.

Finally, I added some label stickers from the On Trend sticker pack for my journaling and stitched over them with a simple stitchyou-love-the-woods-3

 

Show us how you used this piece of paper!!!

One Item Wonder: Exclusive Cork Shapes

I love the exclusive embellishments in this month’s kit, Here’s the Story. They make me happy!

These cute cork shapes also come in triangles and a darling label. Let’s take a look at how creative team member Jenni used them on her layout:

Jenni added the cork circles to Simple Stories clips, then attached them to layers of patterned paper and a 3×4 card. What a great way to create a title!

Do the cork shapes make you happy, too? We can’t wait to see how you use them! Be sure to share on the Facebook page. Have a great day!

Take Two: Hello Happy Zone

By Gina Lideros

March 16, 2015

Hello, it’s Gina here today to share my Take Two assignment with you using the fabulous March Here’s The Story kit.  This month I was inspired by an older layout of mine.

Gina Lideros Hello happy zone SBC March Kit

I have a thing for diamond shapes on my layouts.  Below is my older layout that I created with the December kit.  I created a similar pattern on my new layout using triangles pieced together, to create diamond shapes.  Both pages have the same title “hello”, splashes of black ink, a diamond shaped photo and lots of fun embellishments.

Here’s a closeup of my layout for you.  I used embellishments from the March Tell Me add-on and On My Way add-on kit.

Good Morning and Happy Sunday!! It’s Valerie here today to share a mini album I created using the beautiful 6X6 paper pad includes in our March Embellishment Add on: Tell Me kit.

I am sure when you received the March kit and add ons and you are just excited as us. I just can’t help myself to use every single piece to my project.

So I used the 6X6 paper pad to created this winter mini album to includes all the  snap shots I took and  adore from this winter.

I also used the embellishments from the main and the March Embellishment Add on: On My Way. And I had so much fun creating this mini album.

If you do have any left over pieces from the kit, hope this mini album inspire you to create something small and sweet. :)

Designer’s Choice – PL page with Monika

By Monika Głód

March 14, 2015

Hello everyone!

Today I’m with my Project Life page made using lovely goodies from March SBC kit  “Here’s the story” ( you can buy HERE)  and addons:  “Tell Me” ( you can buy HERE ) and “On My Way” ( you can buy HERE ).

There are jewels inside, like exclusive Scrapbook Circle’s  journaling cards in kraft/black,  Pinkfresh Studio’s cards with gold and watercolor splashes and cards you can cut from MME patterned paper. Oh, and don’t forget about these cute printables from SBC too.  It’s a lot of possibilities for us, Project Lifers.

I decided to use them to create a PL page. I also used MME patterned paper from their 6×6 pad from “Tell me” add-on. I added stickers from MME, Simple Stories  and Amy Tangerine, and cork elements from Scrapbook Circle exclusives.

I like the final effect.

Designer Take: Gina Does List Journaling

Inspired by this exclusive 3×4 card from the Here’s the Story kit, our March Kit-Inspired Challenge is to use list journaling on a layout:

I asked creative team member Gina to share her take on the challenge for another dose of inspiration:

I love how the 3×4 card anchors her photo, and the list journaling is as fun as her triangle background.

Designer’s Choice: String Art

By Gina Lideros

March 11, 2015

Inspired by the new string art trend that is popping up on cards, scrapbook pages and wall art everywhere – I decided to create this fun look using the March Here’s The Story kit.

Gina Lideros Awesome SBC March Kit

To create my string art layout I used the Sweet Hearts cut file from The Cut Shoppe as a template.  I enlarged it and then cut it out with my Silhouette.  I placed the template over my background paper and then used a hole piercer to poke holes.  After all of my holes had been pierced I began to string the design with white embroidery thread.  I used my template as a visual guide so I would know where to thread each string.  After my string art design was complete, I trimmed a few pieces of patterned papers and randomly placed them behind some shapes in the design.  Next, I flicked a few drops of spray mist onto my layout and then added my title and photo.  I finished by dressing up my layout with embellishments from the main kit as well as the  On My Way Add-on kit and the Tell Me  Add-on kit.

I hope you were inspired by my project today.  If you create a project with our March kit, we would love for you to share it with us on our Scrapbook Circle Facebook page.

One Item Wonder: Bella Blvd. Bows

Now that I have a little girl, I’m a sucker for bows. Bella Blvd.’s new Bella Bows are no exception. I was excited to see them in the March kit, Here’s the Story. Aren’t they cute?

I asked creative team member Rebecca to share with us how she used the Bella Bows on a recent page:

rk sc march 2

Rebecca used a gel pen to add faux stitches the bows, which she carried over to the paper on her layout.

She also added enamel stars to the center of each one before adding them to two of the circles on her page.
