Trio of Valentine’s cards

Hello crafty friends!

Today, I am sharing with you what I created with the February add-on Record It.  One of my favorite products to get is 6×6 paper pads.  I think they are so versatile and such a great value!

Using the Dear Lizzy Lovely Day 6×6 paper pad and the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams gold puffy hearts, I created 3 mini Valentine cards for my family.  Valentine’s day is one of my favorite holidays…specifically for the Valentine scrapbooking products!  I love hearts, pink, red, and love sentiments!

For my first card, I cut out some black and white strips of pattern paper, and glued them to a piece of white card stock that I die cut into a square.  I added machine stitching to a few of the strips, and then adhered it to a red card base.  Then I added the I heart you sentiment and the gold puffy heart.

For my second card, I die cut 2 different sized squares from pattern paper.  I added a Love you sentiment to the red square.  I also added some flowers that I fussy cut from a pattern paper from the Dear Lizzy 6×6 paper, and a gold puffy heart to the red square.  I adhered the black striped paper to a white card base, and then added the red embellished square on top with foam adhesive.

For my last card, I die cut 2 different sized squares from pattern paper.  On the ombre paper, I added some gold ink splatter.  I adhered the ombre paper to a red card base, them added the text pattern paper on top with foam adhesive.  I added the Elle’s Studio Love You sticker and a gold puffy heart on top.

I hope you like my cards!  I know my girls will love them.  I hope that I have inspired you to get crafty!

Have a lovely day!

Tech Tip: SIX

Hello friends!

Today I have a layout using January Love Notes kit, and the January True Love add-on.

I wanted to document my daughter turning 6 this past summer, and a few of her favorites.  She loves shopkins, playing with her dolls, and watching youtube kids.  Her favorite foods are pizza, corndogs, pasta, and chocolate.  Her bffs are Tiffany, Ava, Ava, and Lauren…sounds about right for a 6 year old, right?!  [smiley face]

I absolutely loved the papers in the Crate Paper 6×6 paper pad, so I created a heart layout using them!

For my technique tip:  adding a bit of oomph & dimension to your photo.  I don’t know if you can tell from my photos above, but my photo is 3-d; It’s 2 photos in one.  I was actually “making lemonade from lemons” with this technique.  My printer kept printing ink smudges on the photo, so I reprinted it several times.  I didn’t want to waste the photos, so I thought why don’t I create a 3-d photo.  I fussy cut out my daughter in one of the photos and attached it to another photo with my favorite thin foam dots for a subtle 3-d effect.

It just adds a little “somethin’ somethin'” to my layout, and I love it!

To create my layout:

  1. I used a heart punch to punch out a bunch of hearts from the pattern paper in the 6×6 Crate Paper pad.
  2. I lined them up on a piece of white cardstock and added machine stitching.
  3. I added my photo with foam dots.
  4. I added the title using Pinkfresh Studio alphas from the November Hot Cocoa add-on and journaling that I typed up on the computer.
  5. I embellished with a simple stories word sticker and label sticker with my date.  I also added a fancy pants cork sticker.

That’s it!  I hope you like my layout!  I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!

 

 

Designer’s Choice with Jennifer

Hello Scrapbook Circle friends! It’s Jennifer today with my Designer’s Choice project for January.

1-15-Jen-Mc-1

This month’s kit is overflowing with stickers and embellishments,  which prompted me to create this project that uses several of them in a small grid pattern.

1-15-Jen-Mc-6

I began by cutting 2×2-inch squares of patterned paper and adhering them to the top half of the background paper. When I laid the photo on the grid, it seemed a little to large so I added border strips along the top and bottom of the grid. The fringe-patterned paper is one of my favorites this month! I ended up cutting it into strips and then creating actual fringes along the print lines of the paper. Once I had it in place, I machine-stitch the top to give it a softer feel.

With my embellishments in place and the fringe sewn down, I adhered my photo to the layout using foam squares to raise it to the same height as the embellishment grid. I also added a few drops of paint on the background.

The title on the layout was created using my Silhouette Cameo and a font on my computer. I cut several “love” sentiments along with “this girl” and cascaded them down the photo.

The finished layout is quite busy but works. I love that I was able to use the Valentine-themed papers and embellishments on a non-holiday photo!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you are inspired to create!

DT Choice | Stamped Background

Hello everyone!  I’m here today to share a layout I created using one of my favorite items in this month’s kit, “Hello Today”.

…The Scrapbook Circle Love Bubble Stamp!

I loved the stamp so much that I decided to create my own background with it. I simply inked the stamp with black StazOn ink and stamped it on the white card stock in a random pattern.

On the bottom half of my layout I layered lots of pieces of patterned paper from the kit behind the photo of my absolute favorite food ever.  I also stitched around the kraft colored arrow using some aqua thread and added a few of the exclusive SBC tags on the right of my photo.
