You're So Lovely - My Creative Scrapbook

Hello, blog friends!

Today I have my final share for My Creative Scrapbook kit club.

It's hard for me to believe, but after 5 years of having the privilege of designing with the beautiful My Creative Scrapbook kits, 4-1/2 years of hosting the My Creative Scrapbook blog, and 2-1/2 years of coordinating the My Creative Scrapbook design team in between, I have made the decision to pass the reins to others and to step aside.

I cherish the times that I had with My Creative Scrapbook, and I will be cheering Pam and her company on from the sidelines.  Thank you, Pam, for everything.

So, here is my last My Creative Scrapbook layout, made with the super gorgeous January Limited Edition kit featuring Kaisercraft's Ooh La La collection.


This is my little cutie on dance recital picture day.

I really loved this floral paper but I felt it was a bit too busy under the photo as-is.  So I smooshed a layer of gesso onto the area of the focal point.  I added some drywall tape for texture and then added some modeling paste through a Prima stencil.  I did just a bit of stamping with a Prima script stamp and then flicked some drops of color with Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.


I love to use doilies in my paper layers.  It adds a nice feminine feel and softens up the straight edges of the paper.  I also like to tear the edges of some of the papers.  I tucked in some chipboard pieces, stickers, fussy-cut elements, and a Prima brad on the left side of the page.


The right side cluster consists of one of the beautiful Prima floral vines, an individual Prima flower, some fussy cut flowerr, stickers, and a Prima brad.  It's all dabbed ever so slightly with white gesso for a softening and blending effect.

Moments - My Creative Scrapbook

I'm back to share my third January layout for My Creative Scrapbook kit club using the gorgeous limited edition kit.


I love this whitewashed woodgrain paper!  I prepped it with a coat of clear gesso, then applied modeling paste through a Prima stencil, added some stamping with Prima stamps, and added some drops of color using Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.


I clustered some Prima flowers, fussy-cut elements from the Kaisercraft papers, Kaisercraft stickers, and Prima brads on each side of the focal point.


Everything got a subtle touch of white gesso to soften up the look.

I Treasure You - My Creative Scrapbook

I'm here with my second January layout for My Creative Scrapbook kit club.  This is another layout made with the limited edition kit which features Kaisercraft's Ooh La La collection.


There are several gorgeous elements in this collection!  I fussy cut two clusters of flowers and that cute bird, and used them to embellish the page.


There are beautiful Prima metal pieces in the kit.  I used two of them on this page.


I think I splash some Heidi Swapp color shine in gold on just about every project lately!  I've also used some pink sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang.

It's Not What We Have in Life That Matters - My Creative Scrapbook

It's January kit reveal time at My Creative Scrapbook kit club! I got to design with the gorgeous limited edition kit which features Kaisercraft's Ooh La La collection.  Here's my first layout:


This is a photo of my daughter and her wonderful dance teacher after their final performance of last season.


The colors, patterns, and phrases in this collection are just beautiful!


I clustered some gorgeous Prima flowers and leaves with some fussy cut flowers and leaves from the Kaisercraft paper and dabbed them all slightly with some gesso.


The background is prepped with gesso and then treated with modeling paste through the stencil from the kit, drops of Lindy's Stamp Gang and Heidi Swapp sprays, and stamping with a Viva Las Vegastamps stamp.

Sweet on You - Blue Fern Studios

Hello, friends!

I'm back with my third layout this month for Blue Fern Studios.  Like yesterday, today my layout features the beautiful new Heartland collection.


One of the things that I love about living in Las Vegas is the fact that we can spend time outdoors during the winter without freezing.  I took this photo of my daughter a little over a month ago while she was posing in our backyard.

Ohh are the Heartland flowers pretty!  I clustered some light pink and white Heartland Roses and Blooms with some dark pink and white Heartland Blossoms and dabbed them slightly with gesso for a softening effect.  I tucked in a chipboard piece from the "Winter Page Dangles" set which I treated with Silver Bells embossing powder.


The "Sweet on You" chipboard piece was also treated with Silver Bells embossing powder and a few dabs of gesso to blend it with the rest of the page.

paper: Heartland (Valentine Party, Kiss Kiss, Love Notes)
