Journaling with March Kit

Hey Scrappers, Nicole here and I am back as a guest to share another project I made with the Scrap Shotz March Kit.  
There is so much you get in this kit that I barely made a dent creating this Junk Journal.  I am so excited to share Sizzix Designer Eileen Hull's new Journal die.  This junk journal is stuffed full of tuck spots, pockets and collaging.  

A sample of what I used my March Kit for.

Can you believe all this from that kit!

Want to see more?  Please stop by my blog for more inspiration of what you can do with this kit.  Thanks for stopping by and seeing my latest Eileen Hull Journal.

Etcetera Tag using the March Kit

Hi crafters, Nicole here and I am Nicole Wright Designs.  I am thrilled to be able to create with the Scrap Shotz March 2017 Tim Holtz Kit.   I love all the contents of this kit and that fact I get to make anything I want.  Woohoo!  The Etcetera Thickboard Tag is not included in the kit. 

A little about me then we will get to the good stuff.  I am a Canadian blogger, crafter and general mess maker.  I have been crafting for a while and blogging for around 10 years.  I currently design for Eileen Hull, Sizzix, Xyron and I design and write for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine.  I am lucky enough to teach classes where we make a mess and learn a thing or 2 along the way.  Sandy and I are working together and I am thrilled to offer the Boy and his Dog class at her next crop in May!  Start of something new…?

There is so much you can create with a half pack of Tim Holtz paper pack Memoranda.  I covered the whole tag with this awesome pattern paper.

I cut some of the Memoranda paper up.  The smaller images found throughout the paper is great for collaging.

The Mini Cabinet Card stuffed with a Found Relatives vintage photo is perfect to layer with.  Those Silver Metallic Alpha Stickers are a great embellishment that come in the kit.

Ohhh these Chipboard Quote Chips are awesome inked up with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Inks.

OMG I finally have the Floral Stencil!  Guess what I finally found… my Crackle Texture Paste.  Had to be done, that’s right more Distress Oxide Inks really shows off that crackle.  Loving it…

OK, I was just out in Victoria and found a little awesome antique store where I found some vintage stamps.  I stamped, inked and layered!  So fun!!!!

Do you have some new ideas for this Tim Holtz?  I know I do.  I am working on another project using all these yummy papers and embellishments. 

Thanks for stopping by and thanks to the Scrap Shotz Team for letting me invade their blog!  Be sure to check out my blog where you can check out all the stuff I’m up too.  Want more.. you can stalk me on Social Media too where I share a lot of behind the scenes stuff.  All the links are on my blog, HERE.

Happy Crafting, Nicole

Scrap Shotz March 2017 Kit Reveal

Thank you so much for your patience with a few delays that have kept you waiting for the Design Team's project reveal.
I, Rosie, am happy to be sharing some of my projects with you today.
Truthfully, I am still finishing up a couple of projects so rather than keep you waiting to see them all I  am kicking off our team reveal😊

We love to share our interpretation of a sketch and this month we've chosen to use this Scrapbook and Cards Today sketch:

Let's take a look at a few close ups:
I fussy cut this flower from the kit patterned paper and inked the edges; the leaf die cuts were cut a few of the Altenew Hello Sunshine dies.
I applied Nuvo Glitter Glimmer Paste to the edges of the 3x4 papers and kraft card stock photo mat.
These die cut edges are inked and layered behind the Clippings stickers. The layout is finished off with the kit Perfect Pearls.
A hand cut banner houses the layout title and is surrounded by journaling.

As this kit is full of Tim Holtz I had to channel my inner Tim and combine modelling paste, a TH stencil, Distress Glitter dust, Distress Collage Crazing Medium and Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
  I sprinkled the glitter over the texture paste while the paste was still wet, let it dry and then applied the crazing medium to seal the glitter so it doesn't flake off.

I pulled out my Silhouette Cameo and Tim Holtz Oxide inks for the following layout, I just love how smooth and opaque the inks apply:
A few of the negative spaces are backed with kit patterned paper and I lifted up the cut file with dimensional adhesive over the oxide inked background. 

The kit twine is wrapped around the frame and also accented with the Clippings die cuts.
Here's a close up of one of the clippings, chipboard and sticker clusters.

I'll finish off this first part of my kit reveal with this card:
The floral image is from the Altenew Amazing You stamp set. 
I stamped the images on patterned paper, fussy cut, coloured the inside of the floral leaves with a Versamark embossing pen, applied Emerald Creek Fractured Ice embossing powder and heat set.
The background is translucent embossing paste mixed with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Spray and spread through a Tim Holtz stencil.
Nuvo crystal drops and a clip from this month's kit complete the accents on the card.

There will be more March kit projects for your viewing pleasure so keep checking in!
Thanks for stopping by!
