Step by Step with Monique

Hello My Creative Scrapbook friends! It's Monique here today sharing my step-by-step for this layout created with the July Creative kit. 

I wanted to scrap these two photos of my youngest son and because of the bright colors of his shirt this kit was absolutely perfect! 

This is the layout I created:


First I displayed the kit on my scrap table:


Next I decided on a "round" design and therefore needed something round to trace and found this plate:


I traced the plate with a pencil and cut out the circle, which I then placed on a sheet of white cardstock:


Next I cut three rectangles and placed these on top of the circle:


Next up were the fabulous puffy words:


These words were perfect to arrange around the circle:



I decided I wanted a patterned paper below the white cardstock, so I cut off approx. 1 cm on all sides and adhered the cardstock on a sheet of light blue pattered paper, called "April Showers". 

Of course the layout needed some machine stitching: 


I stitched both on the patterned papers as well on all 4 sides of the layout:


Next I placed the two photos on the rectangles in the middle of the circle. I wrote some journaling beneath and added a couple of die-cuts & stickers (which I changed again later-on):


After adding a few drops of paint I was done! Hope you like it! 

Here are a couple of close-up shots:





For more information about this kit (and the other 3 kits of this month) please visit the My Creative Scrapbook website and if you want to see the photos of all projects created by the design team with the various kits, please visit the Design Team Gallery.

Wishing you a wonderful day!

             Presenting the My Creative Scrapbook July 2021 kits:

***July 2021 Main Kit***


***July 2021 Creative Kit***


***July 2021 Limited Edition Kit*** 


***July 2021 Album Kit***


 Welcome to our Guest Designer -

Michelle Van Outshoorn

I currently live in Rolleston (just outside Christchurch), New Zealand, with my husband of almost 31 years. We have a son born in 1993 and a daughter born in 1996. We moved to New Zealand from South Africa in 2010. I started scrapbooking over 20 years ago, where a friend decided to open a scrapbooking store from her home – literally 3 doors away from me. Very convenient, but not on one’s budget …..because I found myself just quickly whipping down the street for supplies!

It was through scrapbooking that I made my closest friends in New Zealand.

Since moving to New Zealand, I have been on a few design teams for some of the local businesses here on the South Island, and for some of the challenge sites such as White with 1, Sketchabilities  and Let’s Get Sketchy. I am now currently on the design teams for 49 and Market, Dusty Attic, and Embellish It (Scrapbooking store here in Timaru). I was also on the design team for Kaisercraft 2019 and 2020. I have also taught a number of classes.

My go to is usually “pretty” - I love flowers. I also work alot with ephemera, chipboard and die cut pieces. I love fussy cutting (my friends say I am mad!) and love layering fussy cut images and flowers as part of my layout. I will dabble a little with texture pastes, paints, inks and sprays.

I am very honoured to be a guest designer for My Creative Scrapbook.

Walk Through with Claudia!

Hi paper lovers, Claudia here with a layout I created with the May Creative Kit. All the papers and ephemera are very bright and cheerful, and although it is more travel-themed, you can easily adapt it to other design themes:

  


For this mixed media layout, I chose the color combo red-green which I normally only use around Christmas. Here, I used it for a birthday/wedding party theme. As I wanted to go with a diagonal design, I started tearing diagonal strips from red-patterned papers and some vellum for added interest. I adhered these in a sunburst fashion on white card stock before stenciling in the background with green distress oxide. I also used some molding paste with the same stencil for added texture. As title, I chose a journaling card next to the photo before putting both down toward the lower right corner.


To finish it off, I added ephemera and stickers from the kit around the photo. I added a few stamped words and a date stamp. I hope you got some inspiration from this design.

Welcome Our Team Members!


 Below is out New Team Members. I wanted to present them to you so you can get to know them all better. Please help us give a warm welcome to all our new girls.

Claudia Ressier
Hi, I am Claudia Caroline Ressler, and I am so thrilled to be joining My Creative Scrapbook as a designer while working with a team of talented designers from all over the world.I have been passionate about scrapbooking, card making, mini albums, and all other kinds of paper crafts for many years. During the past years, I have come to find my style, which I like to describe as classic-innovative, as I love to incorporate a variety of materials and techniques into my layouts.A native of Germany, my country of residence is now Canada, a country I have come to love and appreciate with my husband and three adult kids. When I am not scrapbooking, you can find me in my large garden, which often serves as the source of inspiration for my layouts and mini albums.  I feel very honored to be part of the MCS design team, and I hope to bring some inspiration to and connect with like-minded crafters daily.

Fun facts about me: I am color-obsessed, speak six languages, love sewing, play the piano, and travel as often as my hobbies let me sneak away.

Ashley Neu
My name is Ashley Neu and I live in a small town in Minnesota.  I’m married to my husband, Joshua, of 9 years, and we have 3 amazing daughters!  We also have a yellow lab named Beau! I enjoy scrapbooking, thrift shopping and spending time outside with my family!

Donna Espirtu

I am Donna Espiritu from the Philippines currently residing in Saudi Arabia with my husband and daughter. I am 43 years old and a Computer Engineer by profession. I decided to be a stay-at-home mom for a while to take care of my daughter. Now she is 6 years old so I decided to go back to work just at the beginning of this year. I started scrapbooking around 2004 after I got married. I wanted to make my own wedding album which I didn’t finish but instead, I made and finished my first niece’s baby album. From then on, I got hooked!I love everything crafty but my first love is scrapbooking. My style gears toward having layers and clusters and very girly. I love flowers and adding little bits of details like clusters and layers of embellishments to any of my projects. I love trying out new things and trends, but I always make it a point to make it my own style and not just simply copy other people’s ideas.

Cris Cunnigham
My name is Cristina and I live in NY. I’m a mom of two 20-somethings, grandmother to a very active 14-month old, and full-time graduate student. I have always loved collecting old books and studying words, so when I discovered through paper crafting that I can mix my love of words with beautiful papers, I was hooked. I would describe my style as shabby and feminine, which basically means I’m addicted to crackle paste, fussy-cutting, and using way too many flowers! When I’m not crafting or studying for school you’ll probably find me playing with my adorable grandson, reading a favorite book, or watching a really cool opera.

Laura Sormani
My name is Laura Sormani and I live in New York with my husband Bill, daughters Danielle and Julia, and three rescue dogs Coco, Jackson, and Rory.   I work at my dream job as an elementary school reading teacher.  As long as I can remember, I have been drawing, painting, taking photos, and making things.  I began scrapbooking as a hobby 23 years ago when my older daughter was born, and my passion for this hobby has never stopped growing.  I feel very fortunate and excited to be part of the My Creative Scrapbook design team!

Natsuka Suzuki

Hi everyone! I’m Natsuko and I’m from Japan. I have been scrapping for 10 years now, and I’m still deeply in love. Most of my layouts are about my loved ones, especially my daughter. I want to keep moments (special or not!) so we can remember them after she grows up. I love looking at other people’s layouts too, imagining  what kind of story is hidden there. Colorful is my basic style but I’m not hesitant to try new techniques and I’m always looking for new inspiration. I also love taking pictures and meeting people (especially scrappers!) from all over the world. It’s such an honor to join the MCS design team, and I’m thrilled to work with all the talented designers here! Thank you xxx

Elena Martnova

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.   My blog http://blogmadevselenaya.blogspot.ru/

Michelle Lagler
Hello, I’m Michelle and I’m very happy to present some of my work as a guest designer on my creative scrapbook, which I create with the unique scrapbooking kits from my creative scrapbook. 

I come from Switzerland, where I live with my husband and my two lovely sons. I am a mother, businesswoman and passionate scrapbooker. I am addicted to coffee ;), love DIY projects, photography, traveling, music and books.

Paper crafting is part of my life. I use different techniques and I love to try out new things. In my layouts and mini-albums you can find parts of traditional scrapbooking, which meet mixed media, brush lettering and DIY. In life, for me what counts are the little moments in everyday life which make me smile and I capture exactly these moments in my layouts. Little stories of daily life, creatively rendered with paper, embellishments, pens and colors.

I am happy to share my works with you and hope to inspire you to create your own, which reflect your world and make you smile when you think back to these precious moments that life gives. 


(Coming Soon)
