Tips using Thickers with Monique!

Hello MCS friends! It's Monique here today sharing a layout I created with the August Main Kit and a fun tip for the Thickers that are included in this month's kit.

This is the page I created:


And this is the August Main kit I used. Loving the Bloom collection from Simple Stories and the few extra papers from Kaisercraft & American Crafts!


In the kit you can see the set of white Thickers I used for the title on my page. As my background is also white I didn't want the title to be white as well and decided to color them in colors matching my photo and the papers: 


I used markers from Stampin'Up from my stash and they worked really well.


I colored the letters while leaving them on their original sheet, so I was sure I wouldn't accidentally color my background paper. I adhered them on my page after they had dried completely.



To decide where I wanted the title I used the Tickers guide from American Crafts. The papers and the photo were still lying "loose'' on my background page so I was able to move them around a bit before deciding where everything should go. I did however staple the papers together, which made the arranging/rearranging easier.


When I had decided where everything should go I adhered the papers, photo and title and embellished with bits and pieces from the kit. 


Last but not least I added the machine stitching and some paint drops and I was done!



Don't you just love this kit?! At first I thought I would use this kit with all it's flower elements for photos of my daughter, but now I'm glad I used a photo of one of my sons as well, as it's just perfect!

Fun Tags with Shona!


Hi everyone!  I am back with another share from the gorgeous July Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook. I created three fun tags and I even used the flower packaging as the background.

First I cut three tags from the flower packaging…I love to use the carboard it is so sturdy as a tag! I also cut pieces from the kit papers.

Adhere all of you pieces to the tags.

Lastly add some twine, embellishments from the kit and splashes of 13 Arts gesso to finish them all off.




That is it for me today, Super easy and a great way to use up your small pieces. Make sure to check out all the amazing kits available this month! Take care and happy scrapping!

Summer Layout with Marielle!

Hello from Canada ! Hope you are all having a great Summer. 
Today I am sharing a Summer layout created with the fun and colorful July Main Kit featuring the Good Day Sunshine collection from Echo Park.

I {heart} Summer

The AWESOME July Main Kit !!



Step 1- I love,love,love colorful patterned paper and wanted to use them all on my layout without it looking too busy. I decided to cut small pieces of them ( size range from 1"X 2" to 2"X 3").


Step 2- I  adhered 4 of the pieces of paper slightly to the left of the cardstock and machine stitched them into place.


Step 3- Repeat process making sure to use various size and patterned papers. ( I have 5 rows).



Step 4- Add a strip of the pinwheel paper at the top to hide the stitch line.





Step 5- Mat photo with white cardstock. Add chipboard piece to right side of photo and the banner sticker under the photo. Adhere photo to layout.


Step 6- Add 2 more paper pieces to the left of photo, machine stitch ,if desired.



Step 7- Add a small strip of the striped paper to your journaling card (to break the white space).


Step 8- Adhere journaling card with 3D foam. Add stickers,brads,and enamel dots from the kit.


Step 9- Add the rest of embellishments.


I totally loved creating with this kit.
I hope you get one of your own from the My Creative Scrapbook store and to please share with us your beautiful projects !
Happy Crafting :)
Marielle
