*New* Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks Set #2

Hello!

The second set of Distress Oxide Inks has been released and the new colours are as beautiful as those in Set #1. I (Rosie) had a chance to try some out along with the fabulous Altenew Cube Builder Stencil.

Lay the stencil on your card stock of choice, tape the card stock to the stencil to keep it from shifting while inking, let
Once the ink is dry, flip the stencil over and tape the card stock to the stencil, apply the 2nd colour of oxide ink.

It looks lovely with just 2 colours but I decided to add a third colour.

To fill in the 3rd colour, line up the stencil over the un-inked squares and apply the oxide ink.


I stamped the flower and leaves with oxide ink using Altenew 'Hibiscus Bouquet', the outline portion is stamped with Versamark Ink and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder from my stash.

A few final embellishments with Nuvo crystal drops and Viva Glitter liner along with a sentiment from the stamp set and this card is done!
Click on the link at the beginning of this post to see Set#2 in the store, Set#1 and oxide reinkers are also available.
We are just over 10 days away from the resumption of the Scrap Shotz Monthly Kit Club after the summer break. The team will begin revealing their projects the same evening the kit and add-ons go live in the store so plan on joining us September 1rst.

Thanks for stopping by!

Introducing...the Scrap Shotz Design Team!!!

Hello!

Let me start by saying on behalf of Sandy, Scrap Shotz owner extraordinaire, THANK YOU to everyone who applied for a spot on the team! The high calibre of talent made the decision tough!
Please join us in congratulating and welcoming our new designers😀


Let's hear from the new designers in their own words.

Cathy Potosky-Design Team
"My name is Cathy and I've been crafting in some form or other as long as I can remember. About 22 years ago my best friend bought me a rubber stamp and the rest is history. I have been stamping and making cards etc for years, but it's only been in the last couple of years that I have been sharing my work and trying out some new things. I love mixed media and being able to use so many items I've been "saving" for eons. I have also started to do scrapbook layouts using some of my favorite pictures, I know, I know I'm behind on that too! My newest addiction is making journals and I have a huge list of those to make as well. I have been very fortunate to be able to work with some amazing companies and share their products. Excited to be part of the Scrap Shotz team and looking forward to this new adventure and sharing what I learn with anyone that wants to stop by! "

Sylvie Hoobanoff-Design Team
"Hi there!  I'm so excited to be a part of the Scrap Shotz design team!  A little bit about me: I have been married to Brian for almost 30 years and we have two grown children who we adopted from Kazakhstan in 1997. My real job is as a Corporate Officer for the local government. I have been scrapbooking since 1998 and I love scrapbooking regular layouts, pocket pages, mixed media, and card making. Now that we are empty nesters, it seems that I scrap mostly travel pages but once in a while I scrap my kids (if I steal photos from their social media accounts!).  I am honoured to be part of the team and look forward to getting to know everyone!"

Karla Yungwirth-Page Kit Designer
Karla is taking on a brand new role on the Scrap Shotz team as our very first Page Kit Designer. We've been asked many times about offering Page Kits and have decided to take the plunge! So thrilled to have Karla working with us on this new adventure, we are aiming to roll out our very first Page Kit in October😊.
"Hi friends! I'm Karla Yungwirth - blessed with three wonderful girls and an amazing husband. We live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, but I'll always be a Maritime girl at heart, as I grew up on the East Coast. I'm home with my girls and we all love crafting together - it's awesome to watch them try new ways to use supplies! I've been crafting as long as I can remember. My mom was always recycling something old into something new for my sister and me, my grammy knitted and my nanny sewed and crocheted. I'm so blessed to have had their influences in my life. About 16 years ago I was introduced to scrapbooking and it was a whole new world! This led to card making and mixed media. I love trying new things and have met so many amazing people on this creative journey! You can always find me with a cup of tea and a crafty project."

Katelyn Grosart-Design Team
"Hi Everyone! I’m Katelyn Grosart and I live on beautiful Vancouver Island, British Columbia with my boyfriend. I’ve spent the last 8 years in the papercrafting world creating cards, mixed media pages, scrapbook layouts, mini albums and altered items. In my spare time when I’m not crafting I like to read a good book and when the weather is nice, you’ll often find me outside taking advantage of the beautiful Canadian weather."

Julia Chupik-Design Team
"Hello! My name is Julia and I live in beautiful Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

I have been a life long crafter but have found my true passion in card making, mixed media and art journaling. Having inky hands and paint splatters on my face at the end of the day makes me happy.

Follow along as I create in my small piece of Paradise and try to inspire you!"

Scrap Shotz PINNACLE Kit Sketch Projects

Hello Scrap Shotz Friends!

On the eve of welcoming the new designers to the Scrap Shotz team we've got 2 final layouts to share from the June Pinnacle kit based on the sketch chosen by Virginia.

Here is the Pagemap sketch:


and here is Virginia's interpretation:


 Love how she created shaker photo pockets on the layout!


 Here is my (Rosie's) interpretation:
I love that this sketch has smaller photos so I could focus on the birthday girl's reaction :).

This officially wraps up the June monthly kit reveal, the kit club takes a break during the summer, resuming in the fall.

Mark September 1st on your calendar for the Scrap Shotz September monthly kit reveal, kit and add ons will go live in the evening and the team will begin revealing their kit projects that day as well.

Make sure you stop by Thursday, August 10th to meet the newest designers joining the Scrap Shotz team!

We appreciate you taking the time to visit us 😊

Scrap Shotz June Kit-Hawaii Mini Album

Hello!
After watching some YouTube videos I was inspired to make a mini album from scratch, I used some a cardboard sheet for the cover and orange card stock to create the inner spine to attach the pages to.


I used the MFT Circle Scribbles die for the diecut under the kit add on puffy sticker.
 The left page holds a pamphlet from the condo we stayed at while the right page has journaling about our trip.

 I put a journal card from the kit in this sleeve from the kit and layered it over a photo. I've used the same circle scribble diecut throughout the album to unify the pages.
 I have journaled on the back side of this flip up sleeve.
 A beach page along with journaling and the scribble die cuts.

 I alternated the kit 4x6 photo sleeves with patterned paper pages, adhering them to the card stock spine to create the book pages and counting every page, ended up with 21 pages.

 On the left page I have cut the leafy kit die cut in half and adhered over the journal card.

 I used a banner punch from my stash to create the banner on the right page.


 The kit leafy die cut is embellished with the kit Nuvo Crystal drops in Sugared Almond.



This is the last page in the book which is embellished with a combination of the add on kit stickers, the MFT circle scribble die cut from my stash and the kit Nuvo Crystal Drops.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look!

Steam Vents, Sea Turtles and the June Scrapbook Kit

Please click HERE if you are looking for details of the Scrap Shotz Design/Page Kit Team layout call!!!!

Hello Friends!

It's Rosie, back with a couple more layouts using the latest Scrap Shotz kit, there are still some kit subscriptions available so if you like what you see, click on the link to guarantee yourself the June kit as part of your 3 month subscription😀.

First up is Steam Vents:


I took almost 1500 photos😳 on our Hawaiian Vacation 3 years ago so every kit is a great opportunity to get them scrapbooked😉.  Some of the earthy colours in this line were perfect for these photos so I created this large patterned paper photo mat and bordered it with twine from a previous Scrap Shotz kit.


The leafy die cut is from the Wild Whisper Designs cutting file which matches the "Worlds Best" paper line and is cut for each kit by yours truly😊.  I cut the die cut in half and misted with black spray.

The kit Nuvo Crystal drops in Sugared Almond cover the wood veneer teardrop along with accenting the ends of the blooms of the die cuts.

Sea Turtle is my next layout:

I created a circular stitching template with the negative portion of a die cut I created for another project with my Silhouette Cameo and pierced stitching holes with my paper piercer along the inside of the die cut. I then hand stitched with embroidery floss from my stash. 



I punched circles with my 2" circle punch from kit patterned papers, folded in half and adhered within the stitched circles. The stitched border is the perfect place to house the alphas (custom cut with the Silhouette Cameo for this kit) creating the title for this page.


The die is cut in half and popped up with foam tape on either side of the photo. I also embellished the die cut with kit Crystal Nuvo Drops.


Photo is punched with a 3" circle punch and adhered to the card stock with foam tape in between the die cut halves.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look at these projects!

Scrap Shotz June Kit Reveal

Hello!

If you are looking for the details on the Design Team and Page Kit Designer Call, please click HERE.


The June Scrap Shotz kit features a local company, Wild Whisper Designs and their "World's Best" line.


Rosie here to share with you my first 2 projects created with the latest kit.


This layout is based on this sketch from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine:

 I turned the sketch and created the "swoop" with the sequins included in the kit.
 I also added a little glitter from my stash.

 The gold flowers are a kit add-on.

I sprayed numbers from my stash with Heidi Swapp Colour Shine mist and the crochet edged accent is from a previous Scrap Shotz kit.


This next project celebrates Father's Day and this line can be used for both Father's Day and Mother's Day projects.

I cut various pieces of patterned paper and positioned them in a square. I then taped off an area with painters tape, applied embossing ink then Emerald Creek Hammered Metal embossing powder and heat set. This embossing powder is chunky-ish so I applied heat to the underside of the paper so I wouldn't blow the powder all over the place-yes I have done that before ;). A strip of patterned paper completes this oversized photo mat. Nuvo Crystal drops from the kit above and below the paper block complete the "frame" .


I fussy cut locks and keys from one of the patterned papers and used the "love" key to create the "love dad" title. It's hard to tell from the photo but I highlighted 3 of the keys with a Wink of Stella marker.

I will have more projects to share in the next few days and check out our Design Team/Page Kit Designer Call, link is at the beginning of the post 😊

Thanks for stopping by!
