Step by Step with Monique!

Hello My Creative Scrapbook friends! It's Monique here with you today! I'm sharing a step-by-step of my "Together We Are Better" layout which I created with the February Creative Kit. I was so happy when I first saw this kit! I'm a huge fan of everything from Simple Stories and the Apron Strings collection is definitely one of my favorites! 

This is the layout for which I created the step-by-step:


I assembled everything I thought I would need. Don't you just love the sight of this?!


Next I cut squares in three different sizes from random pieces of paper. The smallest square is 1.5" and the largest is 2":


I adhered these squares on the left side of a white sheet of cardstock. When you do this make sure to use only the tiniest bit of glue for the top square as you want to fold this one later-on:


Using my sewing machine I sew diagonally over the squares. Sometimes from left to right, sometime the other way around:



Using a bone folder fold over the top square:


I alread love this result! It's just because the papers are so pretty! 

Next I matted my photo and placed this in the top right corner, partially over some of the squares;


The February Creative Kit contains two 12" x 12" sheets with stickers and I used some of these for my layout: 


Next I added some more machine stitching and I wrote a few lines of journaling and I was done!


Here are a few more detail photos of my layout:

Wishing you a wonderful day!

Tutorial Layout 4 – February Main Kit

Hello fellow crafters,

Today I would like to talk about my fourth layout with this gorgeous Simple Stories collection called ‘Hello Today’. I used the exclusive rainbow cut file which spoke to me as I knew I wanted to scrap a photo of my son in Aruba.

I started customizing the cut file by cutting out pieces to fit in the photo which was a bit more challenging than I thought. After this, I chose the other papers to go with it. Then I started tearing four paper strips which I arranged on plain white cardstock.

The middle part is a nice dark green which needed some extra oomph. So I used a bubble stencil with white modelling paste to the left and right side of this paper. Following this, I adhered the backed cutfile rainbow right in the middle and popped it up.

Then, I started ‘decorating’, one of my favorite parts of creating. I added chipboard pieces and various ephemera in the right and left corners of the page. But I felt something was missing around this rainbow, so I adhered two smaller clusters of embellishments around it.


Afterwards, I added some white mini alpha puffies from my stash on the rainbow to complete the title ‘Be our everyday Rainbow’. For a finishing touch, I stamped the small rainbow from the stamp set by Amy Tangerine (part of the kit) a few times around the layout.

Bright and Happy with Monique!

Hello My Creative Scrapbook fans! It's Monique here today sharing a step-by-step of one of the layouts I created with the January Main Kit. I was so happy when I saw this kit, with all it's bright and happy colors of the "Go The Scenic Route" collection from Paige Evans! I'm a huge fan of Paige's collections and so I couldn't wait to dig in! 

Here's the layout for which I created the step-by-step:


The photo I scrapped is of my oldest son and our Cocker Spaniel pup. They make me so happy every day and so they were a perfect subject! 

I started my layout by preparing the watercolor background paper. Included in the kit was a fun stencil so I grabbed my watercolor paints and got started:


Next I cut three strips of paper and punched some circles and distressed the edges before I adhered everything in the middle of my paper: 


Also included in the kit was this set of Jillibean Soup stamps and matching dies. So of course I wanted to use those too:


I stamped a few of the words on my page: 


The next step was to mat the photo (distress the edges) and add a few die-cuts to it: 


This photo was placed in the middle of the layout and more die-cuts and chipboards were added to it:


Next I added some machine stitching:


Included in the kit was also a bottle of Prima fine shimmer spray (just add water). I added a few drops of this to my page: 



And my page was done!! 


Hope you like it! Here are a few more detail photos:
