Valentine Heart Decor with Zelda!


Hi everyone, today I am sharing a cute Valentine Heart Decor that I created using the February Creative kit Lucky Us from Pink Paislee


 I first started by drawing a heart onto a piece of cardboard then once I cut it out I added double sided tape and adhered white cardstock to it.



Using my paper trimmer I cut multiple strips of paper from each pattern at 12" x 1¼" I then rolled each strip around one of my knitting needles while using liquid adhesive to glue in place. Once dried I removed the paper straw and repeated the steps with all the paper strips.





 Each straw was then adhered to the white cardstock on the heart using double sided tape and then trimmed along the top and bottom. I used multiple valentine ribbon that I had in my stach and hot glued it to the back of the heart so it would hang.



I thought I was finished but I wanted the heart to pop a bit more so I used black cardstock and a valentine cut file that can be found on the website of My Creative Scrapbook in the the add on section. I backed the arrow and the xoxo with patterned paper from the kit and placed the xoxo in the center of the heart and the arrow I glued to back.




 Here is the finished heart. I absolutely adore this.

Grateful with Yvette!

Hello everyone! Yvette here, and today, I'm going to show you how easy it is to make rolled paper flowers. 

Grateful....



Step 1:  Cut a few pieces of pattern paper into 4x4 squares.  

Step 2: Draw a spiral on the square pieces of paper, it doesn't have to be perfect. 


Step 3: Cut along the pencil lines you have drawn, staring at the outside edge and working your way to the center.


Step 4: Use a pencil or a small paint brush to get the rolling started, continue rolling until you get to the center, using your fingers to keep it from popping open.

Step 5: Add glue to center of the spiral/base and press to adhere the coiled paper.  


and you're done.... 


Added your beautiful rolled flowers onto your scrapbook pages, cards or make them into a bouquet, just think of all the beautiful projects you can add these flowers to.

So Happy Together with Monique!

Hello friends! It's Monique here today with a step-by-step of my favorite February layout, created  with the February Main Kit. This kit is filled with lots of goodies from the "So Happy Together" collection from Simple Stories as well as a few sheets from Jen Hadfield & Photo Play Paper. This month we also have some amazing cut files and I just had to use one for my page.

This is the layout I made the step-by-step for:


And this is the cut file I chose: 


I started with assembling everything I (thought I) wanted to use: 


After deciding which patterned paper would function as my background paper (the yellow chequered paper) I chose another paper to cut the "Love You" cut file from (red with white dots). I uploaded the cut file into my Silhouette library and prepared it so I could cut it. This meant I had to trace the design first before I could cut it:





After cutting the "Love You" cut file and placing it onto the yellow chequered paper, I decided I wanted a white edge around my page. I cut off a small strip from 2 sides of the yellow paper and placed it on a sheet of white cardstock:


I used the leftover letters to cut around:


And adhered these behind the cut file:


And voilĂ :


Because of the colorful papers I used I chose a black & white photo (of my daughter with our new puppy). I placed it here and there before deciding I wanted it in the bottom right corner:


Now the fun part started: embellishing! I added lots of die-cuts, chipboards and stickers!


And then filled many of the empty hearts with die-cut hearts (as I don't like blank spaces, lol):


Now my layout was almost done, all it needed was a bit of machine stitching! Here are some close-up photos of the finished layout:





A stamped date was necessary as well of course!


Don't you just adore this kit?!

Together with Michelle!



For my layout I first choose the papers from the fantastic scrapbooking kit of my creative Scrapbook which I want to use for my layout.

need a photo and a sheet of white cardstock.



With the scissors I cut out pieces of paper (here light brown, pink and green-bluewhich are a tiny bit bigger than my photo. I arrange them under the photo and staple them together.

Then I cut two more pieces of paper out of the white paper with the printed text. I also arrange them under the photo and glue them together.



Next I take the great background text stamp which is included in the scrapbooking kit. I love this stamp because it fits to all kinds of themes and there are countless possibilities to combine it.

stamp it several times on my white cardstock, so that I can place the photo with the papers on top and the stamp is still partially visible.

I'm gluing the papers down. Then I push and stick a tag under the stack of paper. I like the Cardstock sticker "home sweet home" a lot and because it fits to my layout I stick it next to the label



Next, I separate the lettering "so happy togehterand then stick it on my layout. I like the box with the hearts and I also like the houses. I arrange these embellishements on my layout. A few heart stickers will follow.

Because I have a lot of white space outside the photo cluster, I cut long paper stripsThese I stick - a little bit shifted - to the upper and lower border.

Finally I cut out the text "we are Family" in a circle and stick it to the bottom of the paper with a scrap of paper and a heart sticker.

While checking the layout I want to add a tree from the great Die Cut Set that is included in the scrapbooking kit. A last text sticker (pink) below the text "togethercompletes the picture.

hope the tutorial inspired you and wish you a lot of fun while creating yours.
