Blessed with Monique

Hello everyone, it's Monique here, with a detailed step-by-step of my "Blessed" layout. The June kit with the Early Bird collection from Bo Bunny contained the most amazing papers, like the sheet with all the clocks, which was definitely one of my favorites!

This is the page I made:

Here's how I created it: I started with the white cardstock and selected five different color mists, inks, etc.. which I sprayed and splattered horizontally over the center of my white cardstock like this:

Also included in the kit is this stamp set from 1Canoe 2 and I used a few of the stamps for my background as well:

I placed my photo on the cardstock background, below the stamped word "love" and punched and cut a series of clocks from the "Clocks" sheet:

Moving the clocks this way and that I came up with this design, which I quite liked. Except for the 10 clocks I also added a few die-cuts (butterfly and flowers):

I cut two strips from the paper "Time Flies" and adhered these at the top and bottom of my layout. I also added a few more die-cuts (bird, flower and another butterfly) and adhered the wood veneer word "blessed" on my photo:

Of course I needed to add some machine stitching:

and some hand written journaling:

After stamping the date (twice) my page was finished!

Two more close-ups:

This is it! Hope you like it!

Card share with Tracy!

Welcome back crafty friends! Today I am sharing a sweet little project that I created using the June Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook, featuring the Early Bird Collection from Bo Bunny.
I always like to create a few cards with the left over bits and pieces of a kit, and this collection had so many sweet embellishments with a tea theme. I just had to create a little git card with those embellishments.
The card base is 6x6 in white cardstock.
Cut the teal patterned paper to 5.5x5.5. Adhere to the card base. Cut a strip of the pink patterned paper to go all the way across the card.
Find the large wreath die cut, and the smaller clock image to go in the middle and cover the sentiment. Adhere this piece to the card using 3D foam squares.
Add the "Time For Tea" chipboard embellishment to the middle of the card.
Cut apiece of the pink and yellow patterned paper that is 1.75x6. Adhere to the inside of the card with adhesive along the sides and bottom of the patterned paper to create a pocket. Cut a strip of the striped patterned paper that is 6" long. Adhere along the top of the pocket.
Add the tea cup die cut. Now your card is ready to tuck your favourite tea to share in the pocket, to brighten someone's day.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Quilting on a layout with Madeline

My idea for this, the first page that I created with My Creative Scrapbook's June main kit, was to piece together a quilt-like center portion from all the beautiful patterned papers in the kit. But first, I created a background with a bit of spray and several splatters of mist on white cardstock:

Next I cut 2-inch squares from the patterned papers that I chose. A paper punch would have made this so much easier! ;)

I also wanted to use a couple of thin strips from this paper:

Specifically, these. (You'll see!)

 Here are my strips and squares, inked and arranged in the center of my background paper:

After adhering my photo to the upper right hand side,

I began my title on the lower left, using a wood veneer word from 1Canoe2,

then finished the phrase with Thickers (all included in June's main kit):

Layered chipboard pieces enhance the title,

and add dimension to the page elsewhere:

One of the patterned papers in the kit was made to be cut up into journaling blocks, embellishing strips and 2x3 inch cards. Here's how I chose to use them:

Fussy cut butterflies and enamel dots along with the words cut from the cards make a cute little cluster next to my photo:

The cut out phrase from one of the 2x3 cards was the perfect size for a banner:

The end result: a pretty uncluttered page. I actually find that I LIKE the white space along the top and bottom! Eventually, I 'll add a little journaling to the bottom left...when I think of what I want to say! ;)

And here's the finished page:

Gorgeous Layout by Shona!

Hi everyone!  I am back with another share from the gorgeous June Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook. Today I have an easy was to create a different background.

First I cut and punched out a few circles to add to the background…I distressed the edges of each circle.

Next I used one of the awesome stencils in the kit with some 13 Arts Modeling paste and heat set that.

Add the circles and some gauze for added texture.

I did a bit of stamping and started to add embellishments from the kit.

Add more embellishments from the kit…Creative Embellishments chipboard pieces, pretty flowers, and I finished it all off with some 3D balls and gesso splatters.

A couple more close ups.

Livvy is helping her mom get some photos here and approves of the layout hehe.

That is it for me today. Make sure to check out all the amazing kits available this month! Take care and happy scrapping!

Step by Step with Dorymar!

Hello Friends, Dorymar here! Today I share with you a fantastic layout and how to do it step by step. For this layout I used part of the June Main Kit. I love all the different paper designs, the flowers, the letters, the glitter chipboards,everything is awesome in this kit!

To begin, I used the Hopeful paper as a base.

Then I selected the Enchanted paper and made a hole in the center leaving 1 1/4 "on each side.

Then cut the blue lines paper to 4 ¾ x 12, tear one of the sides to give it a rustic touch.

Since I have the pieces cut, I placed the piece of lined paper on the left side of the base and the corner that is torn I placed 3d tape to give dimension. Then I put 3d tape on the back of the frame that I made with the Enchanted paper and paste it on the base.

I used a stencil and pearl stencil paste to decorate the background.

I used distress ink to paint the letters, in this case I blurred the letters to  give them an ombre style.

I cut a 4 x 6 photo mat of the Clocks paper. Then with a craft knife I took off the lower part of the butterfly on the corner from one of the pieces included in the kit. I put 3d foam tape on back to give it a little height.
I selected the following elements to add dimension and focus to the layout. Some were cut out of the papers and the others are found in the individual pieces and layered chipboard.

Here a few close of my page!

Thank you so much for stopping by and thanks to My Creative Scrapbook for the opportunity to design with their beautiful June Main Kit.

Happy scrapping!
