Vacay with Monique!

Hello My Creative Scrapbook fans! It's Monique on the blog today sharing another step-by-step for one of the layouts created with this month's kit.

For today I chose to do a step-by-step of my "Vacay" layout created with the March Main Kit and Pebbles' Chasing Adventures collection. I'm a huge fan of Pebbles and totally adore this collection. When I had finished three layouts with this kit I had a large amount of ephemera left over and because I really love each and every one of the cute die-cuts I decided to do a layout where I would use all of the leftover die-cuts I had!

This is the page I made:


As I really loved the result I thought I would show you how I created this. 

First of all I gathered all of the supplies of the March Main Kit I had left (which was quite a lot, considering I had already created 3 layouts with it):


Next I drew a large circle on a sheet of white American Crafts cardstock using a chipboard circle template from Technique Tuesday (from my stash):


Now I had to decide where I wanted which die-cuts on my layout. I started with the flower die-cuts and divided them evenly on the circle I had drawn:


The next step was to fill in all the white spaces on the circle. I started at the bottom:


And in this way I worked my way around the circle. The next part I filled in was the bottom right corner:


I continued my way around the circle, at first only using the die-cuts, but as I neared completion of the circle I also added in some of the fun stickers:




Doesn't it look fun? Those die-cuts in this collection are my new favorites!! 

Now I only had to add my photo to the layout. I chose a photo of my daughter where she has this similar pose to some of the die-cuts of the die-cut girls. I matted the photo on to a piece of yellow patterned paper (from the sheet called Savanna) and placed it on the right middle side of my page:


With a journaling card from the sheet called "Adventure", one of the Thickers phrases and an extra chipboard piece and sticker my layout looked almost finished:


With the addition of some machine stitching, hand journaling and a stamped date (twice) the layout was complete!





The layout was done in no time at all and it felt so good to use all of those die-cuts. Normally when I really really love scrapbook supplies I save them for a very special occasion which often means they stay in my stash gathering dust. Using them felt so much better!

Here's a look at the March Main Kit I used:

Mixed Media with Yvette!


Hello, My Creative Scrapbook friends!  Yvette here and I'm so excited to share this beautiful mixed media page with you today. Every once in awhile I like to get messy and challenge myself to create a mixed media background.  Included in this month's main kit is a flower stamp as well as a circle stencil, I decided to mainly use the stamped flowers as well as a few die-cut pieces as my only source of embellishments for my page.




Gather my supplies..... 


I started the layout off by creating a watercolor effort on the background, using various shades of blue, orange and yellow. I mixed the Gelatos with a little water onto a piece of plastic packaging and applied it using the 'kissing' technique...(gently kiss the packaging to your cardstock)      



I keep building layers of colors, working in a diagonal design until I was happy with the end results. 

        

Here you can see, I also used a small water brush to move the colors around a bit. Which created some movement and interest on my page.


I then stamped the flower image multiple times on some white cardstock, using charcoal ink and fussy cut. 


Next, I applied gesso, using a palette knife through the circle stencil. 


Once everything was dry, I decided to add a few stamped flowers over the top of the paint using the charcoal ink. 


Some machine stitching in black was added of texture and interest.

Once my background was done, I was ready to start embellishing using the fussy cut stamped flowers. 

  
A phrase found on one of the cutout cards was fussy cut to create a title.


A few die-cut vines and flower shapes was add to the layout to finish it off.

   I hope you felt inspired today and if you're not a subscriber yet, give it a try. The kits are all so beautiful and you will not regret it!!!!
