Tiny Bubbles with Zelda!


Hi everyone, today I am sharing my layout titled Tiny Bubbles.
In June, we had a happy surprise when my sister and nephew came for a visit. I was able to capture the cutest picture of my daughter and nephew blowing bubbles on the back deck that I wanted to scrapbook. This picture gave me the inspiration to create a fun mixed media background by creating bubbles on my layout.
I was very fortunate enough to win the Tim Holtz Oxide Distress Inks a while back at a weekend crop, but never started to play with them until recently, and I must say they are so much fun to use.
I started by using my blending tool and blended both Broken China and Twisted Citron diagonally on the page. I knew I wanted my photo in the centre so I didn’t worry about spreading the ink all the way. After blending the inks on my page I misted them with water and used my heat tool to dry it. Don’t worry if you don’t like the effect you get you can always add more ink or water until you achieve the look your happy with.

Next I used my Ranger Texture Paste with a circle stencil to achieve the look of bubbles on my page. This texture paste dries to a transparent gloss but when I used my heat tool to dry it quickly it created all these little crackled bubbles, a happy little accident 😊


I then used Finnabair Opal Magic wax in Turquoise Satin over the texture paste bubbles. I love how it added the iridescent shimmer to the bubbles.


I also wanted to create bubbles floating on the page. To achieve this, I punched out different size circles with my punches, and used the same technique for the background. Each circle was then entirely covered with glossy accents to make them look like shiny bubbles. Before they were completely dry, I pressed a piece of paper on top to remove some of the glossy accents to give them the same crackled look as the background I created and let them dry overnight.


Using only papers in shades of blues, yellows and greens I backed my photo placed the title Tiny Bubbles to the top left and a cluster of stickers with a button and bubbles to the bottom right. I also added yellow and blue threads wherever I had placed the bubbles for some added texture. Here are a few close ups.



I finished off the layout by adding musical note stickers from the kit in the diagonal flow of my layout. It seemed only suiting with the title being 🎶 Tiny Bubbles 🎶

Stitching with Yvette!

Hi My Creative Scrapbook friends! Yvette here today with a layout using the July Main Kit.  I was inspired by the beautiful sunshine and clouds pattern paper, so I decided to use it as a background for my page.


I couldn't resist the idea of adding stitching to outline all of the clouds on the Sunny Day pattern paper, which in turn added that extra detail and texture I wanted to see on my layout.
   


Gather my supplies.....in the end I decided to use a cut file for my title instead of the stamps.


Next, I use a paper piercing tool to piece holds around each of the clouds.


Added my stitching, this took me a little while to do but was so worth it :)))))


I love the sun rays on this paper and decided to enhance it a bit by using a white gel pen. 


One of the strips found on the border pattern paper, had the perfect little phrase to use as a title for my layout. I used a font in my Silhouette Cameo to create the title and cut it from some white cardstock. I wanted a colorful title, so while the cardstock was still on the cutting mat, I added some mixed media to the background using several different colors of Dylusions ink sprays.


Arrange the title along the sun ray, as well as some vellum die-cut circles.


How cute is that chipboard sun, I placed it at the top of the page and add the adorable sunglasses on top of it! 



I created a small cluster on the bottom of the layout that includes a couple of floral stickers and a chipboard accent.




  On the right hand side of the photo, I added another small cluster of chipboard and cardstock stickers.

I really enjoyed creating this page using the sunshine and clouds pattern paper and hope I inspired you to do the same! 

Happy Crafting!!!

Summer Memories with Dorymar!


SUMMER MEMORIES MINI ALBUM
Hello Friends! It's Dorymar here today and I'm sharing a beautiful mini album I recently created using July Main Kit with the gorgeous Good Day Sunshine by Echo Park!
 It is a mini album very easy to complete, to do it you’ll need; two pieces of 6 x 6 chipboard, 3 pieces of white 6 x 6 cardstock, two pieces of 6 x 8 ½ white cardstock scored at 6” and three 1-inch rings.
It’s very important that you guys know that I made this album after creating the 4 Layouts that were published on My Creative Scrapbook social medias.  Some of the pieces are part of the scraps.
Then select the two pieces of chipboard and make a mark ¼ " from the edge in 1, 3 and 5 inches to make the holes for the rings.
I've decorated the entire album, using the 12 x 12 papers and 6 x12 elements from the collection. For the cover I used a piece of blue floral paper that measures 5 ¾ x 5 ¾ and a piece of 5 ¼ x 5 ¼ of the paper with the sky design, this piece I glued on a piece of chipboard to give dimension. Then I used several elements of the collection to decorate and a gorgeous dimension using a white crystal drops by Nuvo.
Inside of the cover, I cut a piece of 6 x 5 from the lemon paper and then with the stripes paper I made a 6 x 3 pocket. Then I created a tag that measures 3 ½ x 5.


The more pages you go through, the more fun you have with the colors, the elements, and the details of the project. What is so amazing about the July Kit is that you have many elements in the bits and pieces, the stickers, and the chipboard but also the elements of the cards and the papers.  You can use them to decorate the project as you can see in the following pages. 

I love creating pockets for extra storages for pictures and journaling!







I always used every bit of the collections, even the strip from the bottom of the papers.


I absolutely love how this mini album turned out!! I hope you enjoy this Summer with your loved ones, enjoy the outdoor activities, and create many memories to document on your scrapbooks.
