Celebrate Love - 12x12 Mixed Media Layout

Welcome back Scrap Shotz fans!

I am on the bog sharing a mixed media layout created with the Amelia Rose Collection from 
Prima Marketing. 

With my 25th wedding anniversary coming up I was thinking it was time to scrapbooking our photos from that day. The Amelia Rose Collection was perfect!

The kit includes 8 double-sided pattern papers in pinks, greys, and charcoal.

Product Showcase - Paige Evans Pick Me Up Collection

Hello! Karla back today with a fun and colourful layout and pocket page using the awesome Paige Evans Pick Me Up collection from Pink Paislee that is new in the Scrap Shotz Store!! My youngest sister and her family came to visit us last summer, and it was the first time meeting my adorable niece, Emily! Of course we were all over the moon to see everyone, but you know there's just something about sweet baby smiles ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿ’“ This beautiful collection was just perfect for documenting this special visit, and I am so happy I have two more layouts completed to remember it. Here's a look at the 12x12 page. You'll be able to see the process I used to make this layout below.

I really love the 'Haberdashery' pack which includes buttons, enamel stickers and adhesive sequins, which made it so easy to embellish!

The Swatch Books are so awesome - full of beautiful papers and phrases on a heavyweight cardstock!

And these beautiful Lemonade Thickers, which also coordinate... Gorgeous!

Here's a look at the fun sketch I used from Stuck?! Sketches, turned on it's side.

I just had to keep creating and thought a pocket page would be the perfect thing to add the rest of the photos from the visit to. There are so many awesome elements it was easy to make a pretty page.

I love the patterned papers with all the sentiments - so nice to cut apart to add extra elements in the pockets.

And my favourite would be this pretty journaling card I created by fussy cutting elements from the patterned paper and then adding some gold thread and stitching!

You can have a look at the process I use to create the 12x12 layout in this video!

And be sure to check out this video where I give you a close up of all the pieces in this collection that I'm using today!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous week, and be sure to check out this amazing collection at the Scrap Shotz store!!

February Kit, Cards with Cathy

It's Cathy back to share some more ideas for the February Kit, featuring Vicki Boutin's All The Good Things. There is so much to love about this collection. I am a huge fan of the paper and the stamp and die set. The hanging lights on chains is fabulous!

For this post, I created 3 very different cards using the papers, the paper clips, Stamp and Die Set 1, and the Mixed Media Sticker Set.

First up is one I created on a Distress Oxide background and used just the arrow die cut.

No fancy technique for these backgrounds, I just smooshed my ink pads onto my craft mat, misted them and then smooshed my cardstock on them.

I used the arrow die and cut out my pieces first. I then used the script stamp from the set and stamped over the entire card front in Black Archival.

I fussy cut out the flowers from a 12X12 sheet and then stamped the saying in three spots, this stamp is great for being able to stamp the words one at a time. I used an exacto  knife to cut the edge of the large rose and then just curled it up a bit.
First card complete

The second card is probably my favorite. I loved the stamp, the background paper makes me swoon and I watched Eileen Hull do some foiling today and I knew I has the perfect paper that needed foil accents.

I stamped the image in Archival Black and let it dry. I then went over spots with my glue pen. Once that was dry, I placed the piece of foil over it and burnished it on.

Mine is not perfect, I didn't want it solid, I wanted it to look a bit aged.

I used one of the Mixed Media Stickers layered on another of my fave pieces of paper from this collection, foiled the edges and attached it with foam tape.
 And for my last card....I used a bunch of the off cuts from my layout and from my other cards. 

I went with bright and cheery on this one. I just used strips of paper and cut the little tails on each end and layered them up. My middle sentiments are from the mixed media set, just love the watercolour look.

These little birds are paper clips, just trimmed down the clip part so it fit on the edge of my sentiment. How cute is that little bluebird and the design on his wings is so pretty.

Tucked under the edges are more good words from the sticker set.

Wow! What a great new collection from Vicki Boutin. Head on over to the Scrap Shotz store and get signed up for these fantastic kits to keep you creating!

Have a great Valentine's Day everyone! <3

All the Good Things Scrap Shotz February Kit


Rosie here, back to share a couple more projects I created with the Scrap Shotz February kit. It's been so much fun working with fellow Canadian Vicki Boutin's brand spanking new line๐Ÿ˜. This bright and cheery line is also very versatile especially if you purchase some of the fabulous add ons and use Vicki products in your stash!

Let's take a look at my first project:

This layout was inspired by the blues in the photo which I did not use for this layout. I decided to use these Vicki Boutin paints on the Vicki Boutin Mixed Media paper with a Prima 12x12 stencil from my stash. 
The photo had me thinking about an ombre look so I spread Daiquiri Ice paint with a paper towel through my stencil. I then mixed Saltwater Taffy paint with Daiquiri Ice paint for the mid-tone blue again with a paper towel through the stencil. Lastly, I combined the Saltwater Taffy paint with the Plum Pudding paint to create the denim blue bottom portion.

Once dry, I trimmed the painted background on all 4 sides and adhered to a kit patterned paper. Here's a closer look at the layout: 

I fussy cut the birds from one of the kit patterned papers, popped them up and then coated with a Spectrum Noir glitter pen.

 Silver thread was added as an accent under the embellishment cluster.

I created a visual triangle with the dark orange paper from the top left of the photo to the bottom right, adding punched circles from the dark orange paper to the lower right edge of the photo

Here you can see how the black Thickers title pops on this stencilled paint background. 

Let's take a look at the upper left portion of the layout:

Fussy cut birds accent this portion of the layout and let's see if you can see the aforementioned sparkle pen on the birds:

Below is a close-up of the journal label and fussy cut accent layered over silver thread.

Here is one final look at the layout, I hope you've also noticed the Studio Katia Crystal Fusion sequins sprinkled throughout.

Next up is my kit sketch layout and this month the team is using this Stuck?! Sketches Feb.1 sketch:

and here is my version:

This photo has been hanging around my crafty area for a few months and the moment I saw this kit I knew I would use this photo with it.

You can see I stayed fairly close to the sketch, creating a "doily" out of kit patterned paper inked with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide Ink and then spritzed with water.

Distress Ink Spray in Hickory Smoke was splattered on the ledger background paper along with Mr.Huey's Spray in Gold. Patterned paper punched circles, using a punch from my stash, frame the circular photo mat.

 I used Studio Katia Gold Foil sequins around the top left and bottom right portions of the layout.

These gold words are Thickers included in the kit.

Here is a close up look at the layout:

 My mind is still whirling with ideas for projects so keep tuned into the blog because I will be sharing them here.

Thanks for stopping in a taking a look๐Ÿ˜Š.
