April Sketch Inspiration with Yvette!

Hi My Creative Scrapbook Fans!  It's Yvette here, to share a quick and easy step-by-step tutorial using this months beautiful Creative Kit, with the April sketch as my inspiration. Sketches are such a wonderful way to get your creative mind started, which can help you to complete your layout in no time.

I started by die cutting the hearts border from some white Neenah cardstock.  

I decided to flip the sketch horizontally and place the die cut down the center of my page.  

Behind my photo I added some layers using color cardstock and some of the beautiful patterned papers from the 'Spring Fling' collection. I fold the paper in the left corner onto the photo and added a staple to hold it in place.      

I also added a doily from my stash to the back of my photo before I glued it onto my background.     

I fussy cut one of the beautiful butterfly from the Fluffy Bunny patterned paper to embellish the Bee Happy tag, which was also used, as a title for my page.   

A few drops of white paint was then added to the layout. Once the paint was dry, I combined a few die-cut flowers with a couple of 'Spring Fling' stickers to create a cluster on the right hand side of my photo.      

I finished the layout off by tucking some tangled black thread underneath the photo and some stitching around the border of my layout.

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

Beautiful With Monique!

Hello friends! It's Monique here today and  I'm sharing a step-by-step for one of the layouts I created with the April Main Kit. This kit contains mainly Carta Bella's Flower Market collection and I totally adore all the beautiful papers in this kit, especially those b-sides! Red is my favorite color, and when you see the b-sides of the papers in this kit you'll understand why I love them so much!

For today I chose to do a step-by-step of my "Beautiful" layout. The photo of my daughter was taken a few years ago when we were in Greece. I love the flowers behind her in the photo and how they match not only the color of her clothes, but also the colors in this kit!

When I start with a scrapbook page I always gather my supplies close around me so I have a good look at all the products I can use:

I started with a white cardstock sheet and adhered two strips of patterned paper on the left side. The photo was matted on two pieces of patterned paper and in the largest piece of paper I cut a v form at the bottom. The photo was then placed on top of the strips of paper on the left side:

I wanted some flowers to add to the corners of the photo, but as I had no flower die-cuts left I decided to hand-cut some flowers from the "Garden Floral" paper:

When I had the flowers placed where I wanted them, I decided the white cardstock was too white and using a blender brush and a light pink ink pad I colored the cardstock around the photo a light pinkish color:

Next I wanted to use the white foam "You Make Miso Happy" Jillibean Soup alpha's for the title, but I wanted a colored title instead of a white one and tried coloring them with a few different pens before deciding the Copic Markers were the best choice to hand color the letters (the others pens didn't dry quick enough for my taste):

Look what a beautiful result. Against the white cardstock, this looks much better than a white title I think.

After adding a few more die-cuts, machine stitching, a date stamp and a few drops of ink I was done!

Here are a few more close-ups:

Here's a quick look at the April Main kit:

My name is Elena Martynova and I live in Russia, Astrakhan.
I have two kids aged 19 and 14. They are the most beautiful of my creations!
 I love to do practical things, and just beautiful. Wife, mother, passionate, adored felines.Have the care of three baleen-striped. I really appreciate in people sincerity, kindness and sense of humor. I dream to travel a lot. But not like too long to leave home. At home I'm always fine. Scrapbooking is a hobby that makes my life happier and more interesting. Gives a lot of communication, new friends, the joy of self-realization in work. And of course, happiness of owning a scrapbook treasures. Even in the fifth year of fascination with the scrap does not get rid of the habit to buy any particular paper or embellishment to just "own" for aesthetic pleasure.
