Forever Fall with Monique!

Hello My Creative Scrapbook friends! It's Monique here sharing a step-by-step tutorial for this layout created with the fabulous October Main Kit. I adore the "Forever Fall" collection from Simple Stories Pam chose for this month's kit and had such a great time creating this page.


Because I love the pie charts that are all the rage for quite a while now, I came up with the idea to use small pie charts on my page, instead of one large one. Let me show you how I made them.

I started with a circle punch and a triangle punch and punched 8 circles and a whole lot of triangles:



On top of every circle I put some liquid glue and adhered 8 triangles:


Starting with two triangles opposite of each other I filled the cardstock circles: 




Don't you agree they look like little pie charts?

Because I first glued the triangles on a piece of cardstock, I was able to position the little "pie charts" in different ways before deciding on my final design:



On top of every pie chart I adhered one or more stickers or die-cuts. The title I added to the top row of pie charts. Here are a few close-ups:





Fall truly is my favorite season and I'm so happy with this collection, with all the adorable little bits and pieces that are Fall related.



This is it! Hope you like my page and step-by-step tutorial. For more information about the kit and how to secure one for yourself click HERE! Thank you so much for stopping by! 

Wishing you happy scrapping!

 Please welcome our New Guest Designer!

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!

Home Sweet Home with Zelda!


Hi everyone, today I’m sharing a home decor piece that was created using the beautiful September Main Kit.

 It has been a while since I have cross stitched, so when I saw all the home sweet home references in this months kit, the elements gave me the idea to create an embroidery hoop decor piece.

 I painted an 8” embroidery hoop using this beautiful color called catching rays by Art minds. Once the paint was completely dry I sanded the hoop with my Dremel tool to remove some of the paint and added metallic wax in rose gold which gives the hoop a vintage look which I love.


 Using my Cricut I cut out the word home twice, one of the words included in this months cut file.
I choose 4 of the patterned papers from the kit which I fussy cut to back the cut file letters.


 The floral and stem pieces are from the ephemera included in the kit. I positioned the pieces to curve around the hoop, tacked them together with a little tape, and ran them through my sewing machine stitching them together using white thread.

For the word sweet, I used a pencil and hand wrote the word sweet lightly in the middle, then hand stitched it in a mustard color floss, For dimension, 3D foam squares were added to the back of both of the words home and I placed them above and directly below sweet.

The flowers around the hoop were attached using hot glue, and the house sticker was backed with ¼” thick foam then hot glued to the bottom right of the hoop between the flower clusters. I also added some of the gold leaf ephemera behind the flower clusters.

Here is the finished piece which has now found a home on my dining room wall.
