Background Fun with Yvette!

Hi My Creative Scrapbook Friends! Yvette here today with a layout using the September main kit! For this page I use the Carta Bella 6x6 Floral stencil to create a strip to use as part of my background.

I started by using some washi tape to secure the stencil to my white cardstock.   

Next, I used a stencil brush to apply the art crayons through the floral stencil. I wanted a soft and subtle look to my background, so I only use shades of orange...and really love how this turn out!

Here is what it looks like when it was all completed...


To finish off my background, I added some spatters using some teal watercolor.    

I then added a strip of the 06 pattern paper across both sides to give it some definition from the white background.  I also added some machine stitching to the tops of the paper stripes.

 My photo was placed directly onto the stencil background. I couldn't resist using those gorgeous vellum floral embellishments and arranged them in the right hand corner of my photo as well as a cardstock sticker and that cute rabbit from the Ephemera pack.   

To the top of the layout I stapled two different lengths of bakers twine and then added a cardstock sticker to the top of each one.

A cut file was use to create a title for my page.    

A few more die-cut stars was added around my layout as well as some enamel dots to complete this page.

  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!!!!

Beautiful Layout with Monique!

Hello My Creative Scrapbook fans! It's Monique here today sharing a step-by-step of my "Beautiful" layout, created with the MCS September Main Kit.

This is the layout I created: 

I'm a huge fan of Pink Paislee and totally adore this month's kit featuring the Auburn Lane collection! I love it so much I didn't want to "spill" any papers and used my kit very carefully. The reason I'm telling you this, is that this is how I came up with the idea for this design, using only 1 sheet of paper: paper 07.

I really like the design of paper 07 with all the small triangles and decided I wanted to use the geometrical idea of this paper, but not necessarily limited to triangles. I toyed with some ideas and decided on the diamond shape.  

First I cut off strips of paper of 3 "rows" wide, like this:

Next I cut diamond shapes consisting of 6 triangles wide and 6 triangles long. After cutting the first, I used that one as a template to cut the rest of the diamond shapes:

I found that I really wanted smaller diamond shapes as well and cut a few of those too. Because the papers in the Auburn Lane collection are all double sided I automatically had diamond shapes in 2 different designs:

Placing the shapes this way and that, I decided on this design:

Using just a tiny bit of adhesive I glued the shapes to the cardstock, so I could always rearrange them later-on. I added my photo, a journaling card from paper 01 and some die-cuts & stickers and when I was happy with the way the layout looked I used my sewing machine to stitch the shapes permanently to my page. 

This is it! Really very easy! Hope you like it!

Here's a photo of the September Main Kit I used:

Layering Tips with Shona!

Hi everyone! Today I have some layering tips to share. I love to do layer of papers, masking, lace and other pretty things. For the tips I am sharing my two 10 inch tags created with the My Creative Scrapbook September Limited Edition kit.

I started with the background layer, adding a strip of another layer of paper on top. I then did some masking with the kit stencil and 13 Arts Moldeling paste.

Next I added one more strip of kit papers on top of that before I started with the embellishments. I did some fussy cutting and added a them and a paper doily on top of the first paper layers.

Next add more layers with the kit embellishments, the pretty lace, chipboard piece and flowers.

I finished it all off with splashes of 13 Arts Gesso watered down with water.

Look at all of the pretty layers!

That is it for me today. Make sure to check out all the gorgeous kits available this month! I will be back with more shares from the Septemberkit! Take care and happy scrapping!

Pure Love with Marielle!

Hello from Canada ! I hope you are all enjoying the Summer and that you are finding a bit of time to get creative !!
I used to do a lot of cross stitching and I have an incredible stash of  embroidery floss, so I thought it would be fun to use some on this layout of my niece and her sweet baby girl.
Supplies are from the beautiful August main kit.

Pure Love by Marielle

Step 1- Adhere a 6 1/2" X 7 3/4" piece of floral paper to upper left of cardtock and an other piece 6 1/2" X 4" , leaving a small slit between the 2 pieces.

Step 2- Pierce each edge of papers with a sewing needle the entire length of the floral paper.

Step 3- Using your favorite color of floss make small x's between the 2 paper pieces.

Step 4- You can add more stitches anywhere on your layout to make it extra special.

Thanks for dropping in !!
Happy Crafting ,
