September Printables with Jennifer

Hello Scrapbook Circle friends! Today I am excited to share a project with you that I made using this month’s fantastic printables.

Recently, I underwent surgery to alleviate symptoms of an illness I’ve suffered for several years. I am a firm believer in documenting all of the moments in our life – good and bad – and this event is one that I wanted to be sure to record.

For this project, I began with a grid design using several of the patterned papers from Pinkfresh and Paige Evans that are included in the September kits.

On each of the squares, I used several embellishments to add interest to the layout. My favorite piece this month is the adorable Crate Paper tassel, which I looped onto one of the gold bow paperclips and attached to the Amy Tangerine watercolor resist card. I also used a hexagon from the printable to journal the event.

Next, I framed the top and bottom of the grid with the Scrapbook Circle printables and added a few embellishments to finish the project.

The soft colors of the printable, patterned papers, and embellishments are a perfect match! Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you are inspired to create!

Tech Tip: Creating a Background with Gelatos

By Allie Stewart

September 7, 2016

Hello there! Today I have a layout to share using the September Shine On kit. I created the background for this page using Gelatos and the packaging technique.

The packaging technique is really simple! All you need are Gelatos (or watercolors), a piece of plastic packaging, and water.

First, use the Gelato and color onto the plastic. Add a little bit of water using a water brush or paint brush.

Once you have water on the plastic, fold it into itself so it spreads throughout the plastic. Lay the plastic down onto the paper, and pull it up. Keep repeating this until you’re happy with your background!

I used the Pinkfresh Studio paper tocut out flowers for the rest of my background.

The mirror letters from Pink Paislee made a perfect title!

The Gelatos technique makes beautiful backgrounds, and also works with traditional watercolor paints as well. It’s fun to mix colors as well! Thank you for joining me today!

 

1 Product 2 Ways – Pink Paislee Mirror Stickers

By Jenni Calma

September 6, 2016

Hello everyone!  Welcome to our first product we are featuring for September!  I asked Jung and Rebecca to create a project using the Pink Paislee Mirror Stickers from the new ‘Shine Bright’ kit.  The stickers are from Paige Evans’ new collection, ‘Take Me Away’ and the photos don’t do them justice.  First let’s look at Jung’s sweet layout:

“These mirror stickers are so sparkly and shiny! When I saw the words in this sticker set, I knew it would make a perfect title for a layout about my daughter loosing her first baby tooth.

P.S. Quick tip for you: There is a film on the top of the mirrored pieces; Once you remove it, you’ll see the stickers really shine!”

I adore Jung’s color combo!!  And I love that she close lots of the organic patterns of shapes and flowers but contrasted them by cutting them into rigid hexagons!

Next we have Rebecca’s layout:

“I had planned on trying to use the entire sheet on one layout but even though I used a ton and even though the sticker sheet looks small I still have 2 words and several shapes left over for other projects. I punched circles from patterned paper to house the stickers and wrapped the words around the edges as a circular text path.”

Pure eye candy, Rebecca and so much fun!  I think it is interesting that both members chose to create their own pattern using shapes cut from all the papers, and then accented each one with the mirror stickers.  Thanks for pointing out the film on top of the stickers too, Jung…I would have missed that!

What a fun way to start of September!  Want to share your creations with these Pink Paislee stickers, or another product perhaps??  Check out our Facebook Community page, Scrapbook Circle of Friends.  Thanks for stopping by the Blog today and have an amazing day!

Telephone game with Neela

It is so fun to lift another layout. Especially if the design is pretty cool like this one made by Jennifer with last month’s kit.

Telephone-Main-Web

 

I used the squares behind the photo as my inspiration. I loved the stitching too. Instead of using different patterned papers, I used a single pattern and cut it out into 4 squares. I still stitched along the diagonal to add interest. My photo is larger too. Here is my take on the layout!

Relax with footer

 

I love the beautiful papers in the kit this month. The colors and patterns are so amazing. The papers from all the different collections go so well together. The We R Memory Keepers thickers from the Be You add on are so fun to add the needed punch to the layout. I added the embellishments in a visual triangle to draw your eye around the page. Here are a few close ups.

Back in March I took my daughter’s senior pictures-she had SO many great shots it was hard to pick just one for this page.  The colors and what she was wearing that day worked SO well with the Shine Bright kit for this month.BeautifulDianaW  I have several parts of this layout that I just love, but the one I wanted to point out today was the white on white affect with the journaling.  If you look closely you can see that they look like different colors almost, but really they are different textures.  I printed these on my computer and then trimmed them down to fit my page.

Have you ever tried tone on tone scrapbooking?  It’s really an interesting affect–gives your page a bit of interest without being too distracting.  If you have any pages you have been working on with any Scrapbook Circle kit please feel free to share them on our Facebook page or tag us on Instagram with @scrapbook_circle.

 

Designer’s Choice with Kelly

Hello! It’s Kelly here today sharing a masculine page made with the September kit, Shine Bright.
Snack 1
  I have 3 boys, and some pretty cute nephews…and it’s always a fun challenge for me to create pages fit for men :) I used colors from the photo to determine what elements to pull from the kit. I chose to use some red patterned paper from the 6×6 pad in the September ‘Be You’ add – on, which matched my nephew’s shirt.  The Yellow Puffy Alphas from Freckled Fawn brought out the mustard in the sandwich. And, of course blue and grey are always good choices when creating boy pages!

Snack - detail 1

I loved the design on the Pink Fresh ‘Blue Valley’ paper, and did a little doodling on the half circles with a black pen.  I used one of the adorable little clips to attach the journaling spot…. a couple pieces of foam tape helped it to lay nice and even.

Be real. The Robot.

By Diana Waite

September 2, 2016

Most of summer here at our house is spent in the pool.  A few years ago my kids convinced me to come out and watch them as they “creatively” jumped into the pool.  My youngest’s favorite jump?  The Robot: DianaWtherobotThe Challenge to keep it real wasn’t very hard.  This is as real as it gets at my house! 😉  I created two different collages with the pictures that I took that day-each show the motion of my boy jumping and landing in the water.  (I personally think that pictures with water splashing is pretty cool.)  In one of the squares you can see my daughter holding the dog to cover her face.  She loves to swim but didn’t like all the splashing.

So what is it that you have going on in your life?  Have you scrapped it?  If not you should!  If you have used any Scrapbook Circle kits please feel free to share your page on our Facebook page, or tag us on Instagram with @scrapbook_circle.

Designer’s Choice : Happy Little Moment

Hello everyone! It’s Claudia here with you and today I’m sharing my ‘Designer’s Choice’ layout for using this month’s kit. My layout was mostly inspired by the Pretty Little Studio Woodland Vellum Strips and Word Cut Aparts. For my background I’m using this grid paper which came in the main kit. If I’m not using white cardstock for my background, I prefer using a subtle pattern instead.

I wanted my layout to have some sort of interest in the background so I pulled out a rollerphrase stamp from my stash. This particular one I used was from the Maggie Holmes Shine collection and I just stamped the phrase ‘Happy Little Moment’ all over the background. When I was done with that, I pulled out those vellum strips that came in the main kit and I love them. There wasn’t really any thought process behind where I was placing them, I was just doing whatever I thought looked good. Afterwards I pulled out those words I had cut apart and started placing them on top of the vellum strips. To add some more interest to the layout I added some of those really pretty white puffy stickers that came in the kit this month.

To further embellish my layout I pulled out a few things from last month’s kit and even something from the April kit (those puffy sequins). When I was done with embellishing I added some gold splatters by using the Heidi Swapp Gold Lame Color Shine from my stash.

#AllTheThings – Designer’s Choice with Jennifer

Hello Scrapbook Circle friends! It is time to share my Designer’s Choice layout for August, and what I’m about to show you is truly a sight to behold!! Have you ever had one of those projects that you keep adding “just one more thing” to? That is the case for me this month – this layout has a bit of everything – mixed media, sewing, cut files . . . it doesn’t seem to end.

8-27-Prop-Web

Overall, I love the look of this layout despite all that it has going on. To begin this project, I cut the patterned paper into strips and then sewed them to the base paper.

8-27-Web-5

Next, I began to layer papers behind my photo. If you look closely, you will notice that I used the triangle stencil with molding paste to create a unique background.

8-27-Web-2

I also loved the number stickers but wasn’t sure how to incorporate them, so I ended up cutting them into strips and layering them with the other patterned papers at the top and bottom of the photo.

8-27-Web-1

And since that wasn’t enough, I also used some of Scrapbook Circle’s exclusive cut files to create the tags that flow across the page. The tags we attached with foam squares but do have thread going through each one, behind the title, and then through the right-hand side of the layout.

8-27-Web-3

I finished with some of the puffy stickers, the leather-look badge, and a bit of journaling.

8-27-Web-4

While this is one of my busiest layouts to date and is about five inches high, I think it’s fun and captures the mood and setting of the photo.

As always, thank you for stopping by today and I hope you are inspired to create!
