Step by Step with Monique!

Hello My Creative Scrapbook fans! It's Monique here today with a step-by-step tutorial I created for one of the layouts I created with the January Main kit from My Creative Scrapbook! I love the Freezin' Season collection from Simple Stories that is featured in this month's kit and had such fun creating with it!

Here's the layout I created the step-by-step for: the photo was taken two years ago when I had "Winston" from Simple Stories to stay with me for a few days.


Here's how I created this page: first I arranged everything I needed on my work table, including a few of the MCS January cut files (which you can find HERE scroll down), a couple of spray paints and a square photo (4 3/4" x 4 3/4") (11,5 cm x 11,5 cm):


As the photo was taken during the winter I chose a blueish color spray for the background of my layout:


First I decided on a place for my photo. Next I sprayed a bit of the ink on the plastic Thickers packaging from the kit and used that to transfer the ink on to my page where I was going to place my photo:




I sprayed the word "fun" with the same ink, but for the coffee cup I chose another color:


Now I was almost ready to start building my layout, but I wanted a little piece of this material from the January Main kit as well and hand cut a piece a bit larger than the size of my photo:


Next I cut a piece of the adorable penguin paper (sheet called "Snuggle Up") and placed this over the blue ink (7 1/4" x 2,5") (18 cm x 6,5 cm), with the white netting on top and on top of that the yellow/white card:


I cut two small strips of the greenish paper (B-side Snuggle Up) and placed these on the right and lift side of the yellow card and I cut the coffee cup in two and also placed these on the right and left side of the yellow card:



Before I adhered the photo I stapled two die-cuts to it and only then adhered it in the middle of this layered pile. The word "shiver" came next. At the bottom of my page I added a bit of the blueish ink in the same manner as I decribed before and chose a two die-cuts of houses and a chipboard polar bear to place on top. The word "fun" was added last.


After adding a bit of journaling and a date stamp my page was almost done ...


Only after adding the machine stitching and a few drops of white ink was my layout really done!




This is it! Hope you like my page! Here's a photo of the kit I used for this page, the January Main kit:

Happy Home with Yvette!

  Hi My Creative Scrapbook fans! This month I combined the stamp set with some of the gorgeous patterned papers from the January Main kit to create this fun and beautiful page.


I had an idea to use a few different pieces of patterned papers to create a geometric tree, so I started by drawing a template with multiple sections...which reminds me of a quilting pattern.  Next, I cut the sections apart and place them onto the patterned paper I wanted to use, and then cut them out.   


Here's a look at the finish design....

Added some machine stitching.


Next, I started stamping the snowman image onto some smooth white cardstock with permanent charcoal ink. 


I used three different color Copic markers...Red...Light Blue...Green...to add a bit of color to the snowman scarf and hat.  I then used the coordination die to cut the snowmen out.


I matted my photo with patterned paper as well as some black cardstock, which help it stand out from the background. I arrange the stamped snowmen around my photo and adhered a few of them with foam tape for some extra dimension. I love the way the silver chain included in this months main kit added some movement to my layout, I simply attach the chain to each of the snowman's hand as I work my way around the page.
   

The pink foil, foam phrase stickers worked perfect as a title for my page.

The beautiful chipboard stickers and Die-cuts in this month's main kit was added around the page, which kept my circular design going and really love how this turned out!   


Here are a close-ups....




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!!!!

Thanks for stopping by :) xx

 Please welcome our New Design Team Member!

Hi....I'm Heather and live in Maryland, USA with my husband and two beautiful daughters. By day, I am a mother, wife, and kitchen designer which challenges me and fuels my creativity. However, my passion for scrapbooking, making cards, or anything crafty brings me joy and soothes my soul! I have always been crafty, but my passion for anything paper related began about 15 years ago!  Over the years, I fell in love with making cards, mixed media, mini albums, and designing my own home d├ęcor.   I enjoy shopping for crafty supplies (who doesn't?!) and watching Hallmark movies...holiday ones are the best! I also love music, singing, and enjoy living room dance parties with my youngest. 
I have had the privilege to be a part of other design teams as well as had my work published in Creative Scrapbooker Magazine.  I am honored to add being a guest designer for My Creative Scrapbook Kit Club to my list of crafty goals.
I look forward to sharing my crafty creations with you!


Keep an eye right here on our blog all month long as we share projects and tutorials from our designers.
