Cabin Fever Scrap Shotz December Kit Projects!


Rosie here to share with you my second round of kit projects using the latest Scrap Shotz monthly kit!

Let's start with the Design Team sketch project and we are all using the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine December sketch:

 I used the glitter paper along with a few of the patterned papers.

 The "Cabin Rules" are cut apart from one of the journal cards.
The patterned papers are edged in Distress Ink Black Soot.
A border of enamel dots accents one of the patterned paper circles.

This kit is so fabulous for "Snow Fun" photos:

 My son was excited to build  a snow tunnel out of the pile we shovelled off the driveway.
 This mitten pattern is fun!
 I've layered stickers over kit emphemra.

This enamel moose sticker is a great accent; these banner stickers work perfectly together!

Lots of fun patterns in this line, warm and cozy for this photo of my daughter shovelling the driveway.
Kit ephemera and stickers.

 Kit brads and chipboard.

This line is fabulous for sledding photos!

I've popped up the stickers with foam tape, layering 2 of them over ephemera die cuts. The sledding bear is also popped up with foam tape.

 The title banner is perfect for these fun sledding photos :)

I also used foam tape under the sled stickers.

I hope you've enjoyed these projects, keep checking back as the rest of team will be revealing their projects over the next few days

Thanks for stopping by!

December 2017 Scrap Shotz Kit Reveal with Virginia

The Scrap Shotz December 2017 monthly kit is fab-u-lous! I decided to use the kit to make a variety of gift card holders which are so handy this time of year.

The first gift card holder is shown below; the gift card is stored on the top flap of the card. The bottom stabilizes the card and provides a private message to the recipient. The sentiment is by My Favorite Things (Hand Lettered Christmas) and embossed in silver; Sandy is happy to order this must-have Christmas stamp for your stash.

Another gift card holder I make several of is super easy. These gift card holders can be as dressed up as you like.

Start with a 4.25"x10" piece of cardstock. Score at 3", 4", 5" and 8"

Fold along the score lines and use strong adhesive to adhere the lines scored at 3" and 5". The 4" score line should be raised.

Cut a gift card opening along the raised fold and insert the gift card.

 The last gift card holder that I also make several of is shown below. It uses a 4.25" x 12" piece of cardstock.

Score at 5.5" and 11"; fold along the score lines. The bottom flap is folded and held together with 2 brads to anchor the gift card.

With a scrap piece of cardstock I started to make a cumberbund around the card but decided to adhere it to the bottom of the card similar to a bendie card. It gave me an opportunity to accent the card.

I hope I've inspired you with these projects - I look forward every month for my kit box :-)

December Monthly Kit with Karla!

Hello! It's Karla here today with a layout using the fabulous new Scrap Shotz December Monthly Kit, featuring the Carta Bella Cabin Fever collection. I am truly amazed at everything in this kit as well as the add-on's available, and I can't wait to share it with you!!

I'm using the fabulous sketch from the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Sketchy Challenge as inspiration for my layout. I used an older circle cutting system in my stash to cut out patterned paper circles, but you could grab some plates, cups, or anything circular!

The epoxy stickers in the kit are gorgeous. I love how they are semi-translucent and have such a cool feel! There are a package that comes with the kit as well as some epoxy words, which are a lovely add-on! The beautiful sweater print and plaid papers in this collection are just so perfect to scrap all your winter pics, and I love how well they all coordinate together!

I really had fun with the rub-ons (an add-on available!!), which transferred beautifully to the Bazzill cardstock in the kit. I used mitts and snowflakes around the page and the Oh What Fun sentiment. The sticker sheet as well is fabulous and has tons of really amazing stickers - perfect for scrapbooking or cards!

The red and white sweater print border is so lovely, and the full patterned sheet of cut apart borders are a quick and easy addition to a page. I really enjoyed layering all the fun elements included in this kit, and I can't wait to create a lot more!!

You can have a look at the process I used to create this page HERE

And be sure to check out this video for a close up of all the beautiful supplies in this month's Kit Club!!

Scrap Shotz December Monthly Kit Club - Cabin Fever!

Hello All and welcome to the start of the December Monthly kit reveal😁! 

The kit features the warm and cozy Carta Bella Cabin Fever line and is packed with 12 sheets of patterned paper, 8 sheets of coordinating card stock, 1 specialty paper, 1 set of Thickers, 1 sticker sheet, brads & chipboard, enamel dots and shapes and loads of add ons!

My first reveal post is all about cards and I've used a kit add on, the new Tim Holtz Starry Layering Stencil.

I decided to create some foiled backgrounds and started by applying Wendi Vecchi translucent embossing paste through the stencil over white card stock and then set aside to dry.

Now it's time to turn on the Minc machine and let it warm up 😀.

While it heats up, choose the colours of foil to use, cut to size lay over the embossing pasted card stock and place in carrier folder.

Run folder through Minc machine, note that the coloured side of the foil is facing up.

You'll be able to see the shine better in the following cards.

I fussy cut the snow globe from a pattered paper, popped it up over an MFT die cut frame and embellished with Studio Katia sequins.

The tree is cut with the Concord and 9th Trim the Tree die, the gold embossed tree is inlayed within the plaid paper after also cutting the paper with the tree die. The star at the top of the tree is fussy cut from the gold embossed card stock.
 Kit enamel dots embellish the tree.

 The sledding bear is a 3x4 card cut from a patterned paper and edged in gold Nuvo Glitter Paste.
 Card is layered over 2 different patterned papers placed at opposite angles.
Nuvo Crystal Drops in Autumn Red embellish the snowflake centers.

The team is excited to share our projects with you and we will have lots to share between now and Christmas! 

Thanks for stopping by!

It's December 1st!!

It's time to get Christmasy! It is already December 1st and my house isn't decorated yet but I do have and adorable card and ornament to share with you today! Using the adorable Winter Wonderland from Pretty Pink Posh and some Distress Oxides!

I started out with the ornament (and many failed attempts) but love how this little one turned out. 

Winter Wonderland stamp set from Pretty Pink Posh, some glittery paper and a two part ornament from the dollar store. Getting the parts inside the ornament was the hard part!

Distress markers to colour in the little winter people and I used the sparkle marker on the trim of the hats. A little sparkle is always a good choice.

Other side of the ornament, the igloo highlighted with some Emerald Creek embossing powder, the Soft Fallen Snow and Fractured Ice. Both available from the Scrap Shotz store. 

After a bit of fussy cutting and some hot glue accidents I got the parts inside the ornament, then wrapped it with a silver ribbon to hang on my tree.

For this side I added a few sequins from  Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear, as pretend snow. I also added the sequins to the center of some of the snowflakes.

And side number two. I just love the igloo all on it's own.
The snowflakes from this set are so pretty! I want everything to have snowflakes. For the background of my card I just randomly stamped the different sizes of the flakes in Distress Oxides in Faded Jeans, Salty Ocean and Broken China

I just love the shades of blue in the Distress line! And a few more sequins for the centers.

Little bear on his sled, done in Candy Red and Hammered Metal embossing powder.

Mr. Penguin ready to shovel! This little guy is embossed with Salted Raven

The completed card! What a great set from Pretty Pink Posh, I am in love with this little penguin!

Thanks you all for stopping by and be sure to check out the supplies that are all available in the Scrap Shotz Online Store! There is still time to get an order in and get some cards made with these little guys.

Have a great weekend everyone! Stay warm and keep creating!
