Building Layers with Yvette!

Hello My Creative Scrapbook Fans!  Yvette here and today it's all about building layers using cut files, patterned papers and embellishments.

You can find the Cloud background cut file here...

 Gather my supplies.....     

I used this months fabulous sketch as my starting point for my layout... 

For my first layer, I started by choosing the beautiful xoxo patterned paper as my background base. Next, I added the cloud background cut file, which was cut from white cardstock and was glue directly onto my pattern paper base, without backing any of the opening. I also added some of the cloud cut outs as another layer and adhered them with some foam strip for added dimension. 

Next, I created some layers behind my photo using a few pieces of patterned papers from Pebbles 'Loves Me' collection.  


     Another way of adding layers to your page is to use the beautiful embellishments found in your kit each month, such as stickers and die cut pieces.
After my photo with it layers of pattern paper were glued down, I then use the embellishments to start building several layers behind it.     

I arranged a few printed cardstock shapes and stickers on the right side of the photo, as well as one of the 3x3 cut apart card which I use as a title. Love all the dimension this creates :))))   


Another layer of cardstock die cut pieces was added to the left side of the photo, as well as a stamped sentiment place onto a die-cut tag.   

At this point, I decided to add another layer to page, with some of the fussy cut sentiments found on the Text patterned paper and place them around the 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

Step By Step with Monique!

Hello My Creative Scrapbook fans! It's Monique here today, sharing a step-by-step for one of the layouts I created with the very awesome February Main kit, featuring mainly the Pink Paislee/Paige Evans "Whimsical" collection.

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

I adored all the sheets of patterned paper in this kit and wanted to use as many as possible on my layout. The different patterns and colors look so good together. 

Here's what I did: I selected paper 23, with all the half circles positioned in a circle and cut out the largest whole circle (by hand):

Next I selected a couple of other patterned papers and my 1" circle punch and punched out many (scalloped) circle halves:

Once I had assembled quite a lot, I randomly glued them inside the four circles of paper 23:

When it was finished it looked like this:

Now I selected a background paper and chose the yellow one as this color matched the photo of my daughter:

With my sewing machine I stitched all the circle halves securely in place:

And now I was ready to add my photos and embellishments. I chose two small Instax photos for this layout and of course lots of flowers, leaves and hearts to embellish.

My daughter and I share a passion for books and because we're both reading in these photos the title is "heart books". I just love the gold alpha Thickers included in this kit! 

This is it! Very simple to create, but with a fun result! 

I really think this was one of the best kits ever! and if you haven't secured one for yourself, then hop over to the My Creative Scrapbook side and see if they are still available!
