Step By Step with Claudia Ressier!

Hello paper crafters, I would like to talk about a layout featuring the gorgeous papers by Maggie Holmes and Crate Paper of the October main kit. With an exclusive backed cut file, the design came together easily.

First, I took white cardstock and prepared the distress oxide color background in the colors of the fall-themed papers I chose. I also added a few stamped details for added texture. The paper with the endless rows of houses on it spoke to me first, so I started fussy cutting several houses in different colors as well as some tiny trees from this paper.

Next, I chose a gardening photo that ties in nicely with the theme of staying home. After I had adhered and popped up the cut file to the middle of the page, I tucked in the photo to the left. Then came the fun part of gluing down the fussy-cut houses in groups, some of which I also popped up for dimension. You will see that I created a visual triangle by placing the houses in three different parts of the layouts.

I then added a few chipboard elements and ephemera around the title and the photo. Finally, I adhered the plastic word ‘forever’ underneath the big cut file title, which I then tied in with two groups of black enamel dots. Oh, and did you notice the two tiny dogs which I punched out from the same paper?

Step by Step with Monique!

Hello friends! It's Monique here today and I'm sharing a step-by-step for this layout I created with the September Main Kit and one of the free subscriber cut files. My daughter had just heard that she had passed all her test and exams from University! Time to celebrate and be happy!

I started with choosing the patterned papers I wanted to use and by cutting the word "Happy" three times from a sheet of white cardstock using my Silhouette Cameo:
As I found the white letters too white, I decided to stamp some text on them using a Prima Marketing stamp from an older kit and light grey ink:

I placed the three words on the pink/white striped paper:

When I had matted my photo I placed this on the right side of my background paper and arranged a few bits and pieces around it:

And some more bits and pieces:

And even more:

Using my We R Memory Keepers type writer I typed some lines of journaling:

I cut the journaling apart and placed them on my layout:

For the finishing touch I added some machine stitching:

And I was done! Hope you like my page! Here are a few more close-ups of the layout:



I really LOVED this kit! I love the colors and the designs, but above all that it was a birthday kit! I have so many birthday photos I still need to scrap, so this kit was pretty much perfect!
For more information about this kit (and the other 3 kits of this month) please visit the My Creative Scrapbook website and if you want to see the photos of all projects created by the design team with the various kits, please visit the Design Team Gallery.
Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look at my page! Wishing you a wonderful week!

Explore with Claudia Ressier


Hello crafty friends, I am back with a blog post with the gorgeous papers of the September main kit. This time, I took an MCS exclusive cut file and backed it with the beautiful papers by Pink Paislee. I knew I wanted a color combo with lots of pink in it, as this is one of my favorite colors.

First, I prepared a watercolor background after having sketched out the area of my layout. I took a big part of the beautiful flower paper, tore one side of it, and added another torn strip of the mustard-colored paper to the right side. Both papers are also part of the backed cut file, so I wanted to have them both on the design. I then decided to add another strip of burgundy card stock for the cut file to sit on vertically and stitched it down.

Next, I started working on the center part by backing the photo with several small paper pieces from the ‘And Many More’ collection. I mounted everything on foam, adhered it a little askew to the middle of the page, and started embellishing around the photo with fussy cut flowers and some stickers.

I then added a few more sentiment stickers from the sheet that comes with the kit and scattered them over the page for a balanced feel. Two tags found their place on the perimeter of the composition with twine attached to them.

Finally, I added three groups of black enamel dots to play up the two black photo corners, the black dress in the picture, and the handwritten journaling tucked in below the photo. I finished by stitching around the watercolored area of the layout to tie in with the title, mostly backed with yellow paper.

Process with Michelle!

Hi, I'm Michelle and I'll show you today in my tutorial how to easily create a colorful scrapbooking birthday layout. This Layout is based on the amazing scrapbooking kit from my creative Scrapbook.

 You will need:
My creative Scrapbook Kit September
Photo
Scissors
Stapler
Glue
Washi Tape or black pencil
1 piece of white cardstock (I work here in 8 "x12", you can also do the layout in 12"12")
Foampads (optional) with it you achieve a better three-dimensional optics
Optional: paper clip



Step 1: Preparation

Choose 3 different papers from the great selection, which stand out well against each other in terms of colour or subject.
For a better orientation I indicate the color of the papers I have used for each paper size I work with the size A4 (21.9x29cm), the dimensions for the lettering format should only differ slightly.
If you want to change the layout to 12" x12", replace all the length measurements (the last) from 9"/23cm to 11"/28cm


Cut out the following paper strips:

1x 7.5“x 9“ (19cm x 23cm) (green)

1x 1“x 9“ (2.5cm x 23cm) (rose)
1x 2“x 9“ (5cm x 23cm) (rose)

2x 1“x 9“ (2.5cm x 23cm) (white)



Step 2: Flowers

You can cut out flowers from the papers included in the scrapbooking kit. I have cut out the darker flowers. The lighter flowers are a die cut part that is also included in the kit.

Arrange the paper strips and the flowers and then glue them together. For the upper white paper strip I turned over the border. For the paper strips at the lower border I folded a corner and fixed it with a stapler.


Step 3: Photo and Title

Take your photo(s) and stick it on the large green area. You can also glue it in the middle and frame it later by Embellishments. I have attached it to the left side. Since I used two photos, I added a frame (sticker) to one photo to make it stand out better.

My title consists of 2 tags that are included in the scrapbooking kit. To make them stand out a bit more I decorated the rose paper border with a piece of Washi Tape. As an alternative to tape you can also use a black pencil to create a nice edge.

The two tags are glued together with foam pads and a piece of twine holds them together.


Step 4: Embellishments

The rich scrapbooking kit contains many stickers, which you can now arrange as a cluster next to the photo. I also cut out a star and folded the edges to get a better three-dimensional look. Below the photo I have added some more gifts (stickers). 2 golden stars complete the layout.
If you work on 12" x 12" you can cut out several stars - maybe in different sizes to create a bigger embellishment cluster.

At the end I added a paper clip in form of a 6 to the photo, because my little one celebrated his 6th birthday.

I hope you liked my layout. I am always happy about questions and feedback. Have fun designing and all the best

Michelle
