"Chasing Dreams" Gift Set - Lydia

Good morning, I hope you ae enjoying your weekend and are able to get some creative time in before the week ahead. Well today I have a quick and simple little project I made using the gorgeous 'Blair' kits. I have already told yo all how much I love these kits.

So here is my project. Just a simple card and a tag. This would be perfect to finish off a gift with a because card and tag. These colours just call for my attention with the touch of gold also.


This is a simple by pretty card I made using some scrap pieces of paper. I added one of those beautiful gold puffy stickers, some of the chipboard Thickers, enamel dots from my stash and some ink splatters also to finish the card off.
 
 
Here are some close ups of the card.
 
 

Now the tag I love! Again I used some scrap pieces of paper that are included in the kits, some chipboard Thickers again and some more of the beautiful Maggie Holmes puffy stickers. And nothing is finished without some enamel dots that are from my stash.

 
Here are some close ups.
 
 
 
 
I hope this little project I have created this week has inspired you to make just a little something even if it is just a card or a simple tag.

Hope you all have a wonderful week ahead.

"Beautiful Heart" Layout with Lisa

Hi there, Lisa here today to share a 12x12 Scrapbooking layout with you.
I have used the gorgeous "Blair" kits - these kits are packed with lots of Crate Paper goodness (definitely one of my faves) 


I scrapped an old photo of my Nan & i at my Deb ball. I was very close to my Nan - she passed 19 years ago now, I still really miss her.
I have always hated having my photo taken, but I am so happy I have this one.

As you can see I did quite a bit of fussy cutting of the gorgeous flowers. I knew that I was going to base the layout on these flowers while co-ordinating the pink & greens with the colour palette in the photo.


Once I decided on my photo & had a rough plan of the papers I was going to use - I thought I would soften the white cardstock background by using the Perfect Pearls powder that came in the Colour kit.
I sprayed some water on some cellophane packaging then dropped a few specks of powder in the water to create almost a shimmery watercolour. I dabbed the packaging all over the cardstock - then put my paint brush in the colour & flicked more around the page. It helped create a really soft pretty look. I have sharpened & brightened this image so you can get a closer look.


I layered quite a few of the patterned papers & a doily behind the photo & mounted it all on foam tape for dimension.


I added lots of detail by using the puffy stickers, tiny word stickers, sequins, washi tape & a label sticker from the kits. 
Ronelle has once again done a fabulous job co-ordinating all the goodies.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

'Happy Together' - Lydia

Well hello Scrappery friends, Lydia back. I hope you are all well. So after starting a new school term and recovering from nearly three weeks with appendices, I am finally able to share a layout I created with the new 'Blair' kits.  Can I just say, I am in love with the colours and products in these kits.

So here is my first project using the kits.


Oh my, those colours are all me.  I love them so much. I did do some fussy cutting to give the page another element ad some dimension with those beautiful butterflies.


I love he botanical feel of this kit and the beautiful greens and pinks together. And you can't go past a little black and white also. I am also falling for those gold puffy stickers too.


A layout wouldn't be complete without one of those delicate doilies under the photo.  I also added some tiny words to my layout also.

 
And the title I used a mix of fronts form the Thickers that are in the TSK. And again I added some enamel dots to finish the page.



I hope you are all creating with your 'Blair' kits and I can't wait to see them if you post tem in the Scrappery Club Inspiration group on Facebook.

Have a wonderful day.

"Summer Vacay" Layout with Lisa

Hi there, Lisa here today to share a 12x12 layout I created using the "Blair" kits.
Oh my these kits are sooooo gorgeous, would have to be my favourite for a while.

So here is my layout...


I'm so sorry for the poor shot of the layout. Winter has really set in here is Melbourne & it is very drab to say the least. Not much natural light at all - with the layout having a lot of white space it means that it makes it even harder to photograph.
Anyway I'll include lots of close ups so you can see the whole layout clearly.

This being my first layout/project with the "Blair kits I found it challenging to dig in - mostly because I want to keep everything for something I may come up with lol


This Grid design of my layout is a great way to showcase & use several photos. This is a holiday we took in Merimbula. As most people do - we tend to take lots of snaps when away. So it's a great way to capture some of the memories without creating a page for every photo. I have printed my photos 3x4 or smaller depending on the orientation.

I backed the layout with one of the Crate Paper patterned papers as a border behind the white card stock. I roughly planned out my photo placement - ensuring the layout of the photos was pleasing to the eye & that people and animals were facing the right way.


I used some of the cut a part sheet to create the Title/feature cards. Some of the pretty stickers from the sticker sheet to balance it all out & lead your eye around the page.


I love these gold puffy stickers! They were perfect for putting straight on some of the photos - I then scattered some of the gold hearts around the page.


The butterflies stickers are so cute! Butterflies suit every page right?


I used another one of the cut apart pieces to balance out the diagonal corner,
I added some randomly placed sequins & some of the pretty blue pearls to balance everything out.

Make sure you check out our fabulous kits, Ronelle does an amazing job putting them together.
Thanks for stopping by, Lisa XO

One More Card using the Gorgeous Belle Kits!


Hello my friends! Cathi back with a final project using my Belle kits! My Blair kits are on the way and I am looking forward to sharing some new papers with you, but aren't these Belle kits amazing? I have gotten so many cards, layouts and planner items from these kits!!

For my base paper I used the gorgeous Grow Wild paper from Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart found in the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK). I layered the pink Patchwork chevron pattern paper from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) on top and added some stitching.


In this closeup you can see the layering I did. I took the tag and hello stickers from the cardstock stickers in the PLK. The flowers are from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK) and the butterflies are fussy cut from the Mariposa paper in the TSK.


To finish off my card I used the chipboard frame sticker from the TSK and added the "my darling" word strip from the BPK.

I hope you like the layout I have made for this week! These kits are so full of goodness and can work with so many different types of projects! I hope that you will come and have a look at the kits and consider subscribing!!  You can find the subscriptions HERE.

Follow Your Dreams: A TN Layout with the Belle Kits


Hello friends! Cathi here again with another TN layout with the Belle Kits! The Blair kits are on their way but while I wait for them I used the kit that keeps on going. I am using my paper scraps and remaining embellishments to make another cute layout!


I framed the photo in my layout using a chipboard frame from the main scrapbooking kit (TSK). I used scraps from the TSK Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart Double Dot paper to tuck in under the frame, along with a label sticker from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK). The heart and circle ephemera are from the Bits & Pieces Kit (BPK)


In the photo above you can see a text sticker from the PLK along with the chipboard sticker from the TSK.


Here you can see an ephemera heart from the BPK along with the "Fav" sticker from the PLK.

I hope you like the layout I have made for this week! These kits are so full of goodness and can work with so many different types of projects! I hope that you will come and have a look at the kits and consider subscribing!!  You can find the subscriptions HERE.

'happy sweet 16th birthday' - Lydia

Hello Scrappery peeps, Lydia back to finally share another project using the 'Belle' kits. The past few weeks has been crazy with end of semester exams and then a school camp to start the school holidays, and in that process I lost my creative mojo and have been stuck in the ditch trying to get back out of it. But I am back and ready to get the paper and glue back out and to create.

So here is a project a I have been meaning to do a blog post for a few weeks and it is a sweet 16th card I made for one of my friends. I love how this card turned out wit the beautiful florals in the 'Belle' kits.

 
 
I did do a little bit of fussy cutting of the florals but it was worth it because they are gorgeous. I did use doily from my stash as it did need something delicate in the background.


I used the fabric Thickers and I also used one of the Cocoa Vanilla wood veneer words that says 'sweet'. I love the addition of the wood veneer and different font within the alpha's.


And of course to finished the card I added some of the beautiful glittery Cocoa Vanilla Studio enamel dots.

 
So I hope you like this card and I will sure be back very soon to share another project.
I am glad I am back and can't wait to do another blog post.
 
Hope you have a wonderful week ahead.
