January Kit Release - Project #2 from Julia

Hello & welcome back for day 2 of my January Kit reveal projects.

Today I have 3 cards that I made using products from this months kit and add-on's 
available at Scrap Shotz online store.


I used the brand new Baked Texture line of embossing powders from Seth Apter & Emerald Creek Craft Supplies. Watch for these embossing powders to be available at Scrap Shotz very soon!

~~~Make Everyday Your Best Day~~~
For the above card I used Patina Oxide, Dirty Sand, and Ancient Amber embossing powders.
Click below for the step-by-step tutorial video for the above card.


~~~Do Awesome Things Everyday~~~
1. To create the background for this card I first took the Stenciled Words stencil from the January kits and applied embossing ink with the Emboss-It Dabber. 
2. Next, after I removed the stencil, I sprinkled Ancient Amber Embossing Powder over the ink and heat set. 
3. I used the Charcoal Kaiser Mist to add some ink marks to the background.

~~~Do More Of What Makes You Happy~~~
1. I dry embossed my paper with the Riveted Metal Texture Fade from Tim Holtz & Sizzix.
2. I used my Ranger Emboss-it Dabber to coat my embossed paper before generously sprinkling the entire surface with Chunky Rust Embossing Powder. After pouring off the excess |I used a small brish to remove some the embossing powder from the edges before heat setting.
3. After heat setting I used a sanding block to expose some of the raised image.

Thank for dropping by today! Watch for more inspiration from the rest of the design team using the January Kit.

January Kit Release - Project #1 from Julia

Hello & Welcome Scrap Shotz fans!

The January Kit reveal is finally here and it is totally worth the wait.
This month's kit features the Documented collection from KaiserCraft - its perfect for looking forward or back. The kits includes 9 pattern papers, 1 specialty die cut paper, 8 cardstock, 1 full pack of die cuts, a full size stamp set, mini ink pad, a pack of Thickers, a 6x6 stencil and twill.
Look at all those goodies!

I decided to use one of the professional photos taken for my son's graduation from high school. I figured since he was now halfway through his 3rd year of university that it was time. ;)
The layout is based on the January Sketchy Gallery from Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine.

1. I started with a 12x12 sheet of Bazzill cardstock - color is Smoky and inked the edges with

2. The pattern paper is called Measurement and is from the Documented paper pack - i trimmed this down to 11.5"x11.5".
3.I used my Tim Holtz Distress Tool and went around all 4 sides.
4. I inked the edges with Black Soot Distress Oxide; making sure to make small tears and curling up the edges in a few areas.

5. Next I added some stenciling - I used the Kaisercraft Mini Ink in Bark with the Corrugated Lines stencil from Stencil Girl Products.

6. I added some more stenciling - this time I used the 6x6 Stencil Words from Kaisercraft included with the kit with Dylusions Black Marble Paint.

7. The January kit also includes 2 pieces of twill - I took the Kaisercraft ink pad and gently ran it along the length of the twill I was using to frame the upper top left corner of my page. I used some strong double sided adhesive to attach this to my page and wrapping it around the edge .

8. A January Kit add-on is a spray bottle of Charcoal KaiserMist - I added splatters by removing the bottle top and gently shaking the nozzle over my page. I also added some white splatters with some watered down gesso and my Tim Holtz Splatter Brush.

9. Another January Kit add-on are these Mini Wooden Cogs & Gears. I used my Ranger Emboss-it Dabber on my gears before poring on the gorgeous new embossing powder from Seth Apter & Emerald Creek. Watch for the entire line of Baked Texture to be available at Scrap Shotz Online store very soon. For the gears I used Rocky Road - a beautiful chunky ep with black, browns and silver. I did 2 layers of ep to get a nice thick layer and good coverage.

10. My final step was to create my focal point using the paper ephemera from the Documented Collectable pack that comes included in the January Kit. I grunged each piece up with some stamping and inking before arranging and layering on my page with some elements being popped up by foam square adhesive.

Come back tomorrow for a couple more projects I made using the January kit.

Season's Greetings

Hey Scrap Shotz Fans!

Today, I'm back and sharing with you two more projects that I created using Kaiser Craft's beautiful Mint Wishes collection, some products from Tonic Studios and Tim Holtz's Plaid Layering Stencil. 

To kick off my projects, I created a pretty 10" x 10" layout featuring some of the papers and collectable cut outs from the Mint Wishes collection. I've started to really love creating the smaller layouts and stepping out from just doing the traditional 12x12 layouts.


In the bottom right hand corner of the layout, I used Tim Holtz's Plaid Layering stencil along with Tonic Studio's Nuvo Mousse in Gumball Grey. Once the paste had dried, I embellished the corner with borders and fussy cut images from the papers as well as a few of the collectables cut outs. The green dots were created using Tonic Studio's Nuvo Drops in Woodland Green. I also used a few of the clear rhinestones in amongst the flower.


While I still had the Plaid Layering Stencil and Nuvo Mousse out, I added some plaid in the top left hand corner of the patterned paper.


For the photo mat, I cut a few different sized patterned paper pieces and layered them on an angle in behind the photo.


In the bottom left and top right hand corners of the photo, I added a few dots using Tonic Studio's Nuvo drops in Woodland Green.


For my last project, I created another 10" x 10" layout using some of my leftover pieces from creating the other projects. 


In the bottom right hand corner of the photo, I layered some of the borders from the bottom of the patterned papers along with some fussy cut flowers and ornaments as well as the arrow from the collectables. 


Here's a close up shot of the the ornaments layered in amongst the flowers.


In the top left hand corner of the photo, I used fussy cut flowers, ornaments and a few of the die cut images from the collectables. 


To get the "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year" sentiment, I cut it apart from one of the borders found at the bottom of the patterned paper. Once it word was cut apart, I adhered them as desired along the left hand side of the photo. At the bottom of the last word, I added three little dots using Tonic Studio's Nuvo Drops in Woodland Green.

Kaisercraft Mint Wishes - Home for the Holidays

Hi there!

Sylvie here sharing two layouts featuring the beautiful Kaisercraft Mint Wishes collection.

My first page was created by fussy cutting the log images from one of the patterned papers.



You would think it would take a lot of  time, but it was pretty easy cutting since the logs weren't true circles.  LOL!  Once the logs were cut out, I inked the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink to hide the white edges of the paper and to make it look like bark. To give the look of snow, I then splattered them with some white acrylic paint that was diluted with a bit of water. Once it was dry, I  adhered the pieces into a wreath shape on a piece of kraft cardstock. Some of the pieces were adhered with foam adhesive to give dimension.

To decorate the wreath, I cut up the holly border sticker and tucked them in around the circle. I finished it off with some Want 2 Scrap rhinestones.  The flowers are from the sticker sheet  and the bow was cut from another patterned paper and a Silhouette cut file.  I used some Thickers for the title and a little gold mist for some splatters around the wreath.

My next page isn't "Christmassy" at all! 



When I received the kit in the mail, these photos were already sitting on my desk waiting to be scrapped. I thought the colours worked beautifully with the kit.  I started by using the smooshing technique on the background with some Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide  ink onto the checked patterned paper.  I had already cut the leafy die cut from some white cardstock and using some Nuvo Mousse and a paint brush, I painted the cut file to make it green. I did some more fussy cutting for the flowers and embellished the page with some Nuvo Drops and a couple hearts that were punched out of more white cardstock and painted with the Nuvo Mousse. I used some old stickers from my stash and Thickers for the title.  I just love this page and am pretty proud of myself that you can't tell that this was supposed to be a Christmas line!

Thanks for looking!
Sylvie

Merry & Bright

Hey Scrap Shotz Fans!

Christmas is right around the corner and I thought today I'd share with you a few last minute projects to add to your gift or to send a card in the mail. These two projects feature Kaisercraft's "Mint Wishes" collection, which is available at Scrap Shotz's

To kick off my post, here is my Merry & Bright Christmas Card featuring a few of the die cuts from the Mint Wishes Collectables. 


To embellish the top left hand corner of the Merry & Bright sentiment, adhere a few of the leaves behind the doily. On the top right hand side of the Merry & Bright, create three dots using Tonic Studios - Nuvo Crystal Drops in Woodland Green. 


In the bottom right hand side of the Merry & Bright sentiment, adhere two of the tree die cuts. With the die cuts adhered, create two dots using Tonic Studios - Nuvo Crystal Drops in Woodland Green in the bottom left hand side of the Merry & Bright sentiment.  

To finish, cut a cardbase from white cardstock that measures 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". Adhere the card front to the cardbase.


For my second project today, I created a Joy Gift Tag that's perfect to add to any Christmas Gift Bag. You'll want to read below as I've created a tutorial for you.


To start, trace your tag around one of the patterned paper pieces from the Mint Wishes collection. Once the tag has been traced, cut the tag out. Make sure to punch a hole at the top of the paper for your ribbon.  Ink the edges of the paper tag and tag using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


From the leaf kraft patterned paper, cut a piece that measures 3 1/8" x 5 3/4". Ink the edges of the patterned paper using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


From the wood patterned paper, cut a piece that measures 2 5/8" x 5 1/4". Place the Plaid Layering Stencil in the bottom left hand side of the patterned paper. Apply Tonic Studios - Nuvo Embellishments Mousse in Gumball Grey, through the stencil. Remove the stencil and allow the paste to dry. Ink the edges of the patterned paper using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


From the Mint Wishes Collectables, pull out the joy word and two leaves. Ink the edges of the die cuts using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


From two of the patterned papers, trim off the borders from each patterned paper piece. Cut one border down to 3" and cut the other border down to 3 1/8". Ink the edges of the borders using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


From the floral paper, fussy cut one of the flowers out. Ink the edges of the flower using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.


From the Christmas balls paper. Fussy cut two Christmas balls out. Ink the edges of each Christmas ball using Black Soot Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam. 


Adhere the patterned paper tag to the tag. Adhere the leafy kraft patterned paper to the patterned paper tag. Adhere the wood patterned paper to the leafy kraft patterned paper. Adhere the 3" border 1/2" from the bottom of the tag. Adhere the 3 1/8" border slightly underneath the 3" border.


Foam square the flower in the bottom left hand corner of the tag. Adhere one leaf and one Christmas ball on the top left hand side of the flower. Adhere the other leaf in the bottom left hand corner of the flower. Adhere the other Christmas Ball in the bottom right hand side of the flower. Adhere the Joy sentiment slightly over top of the flower.


Add a ribbon bow to the top of the tag. To finish off the tag, create two dots using Tonic Studios - Nuvo Crystal Drops in Woodland Green in the bottom left hand corner along with a small crystal rhinestone. In the top right hand corner of the flower, create two dots using Tonic Studios - Nuvo Crystal Drops in Woodland Green, along with a small crystal rhinestone. Allow for the dots to dry.


Here are a few closeups of the Joy Gift Tag.






And here's the finished Joy Gift Tag.
