You Were Born to Shine Layout with Cathi featuring the Violet Kits


Hello scrappy friends!! Cathi back again!  This week I have a layout featuring my eldest daughter, who won't stop growing up!!  This layout features a photo of my daughter at the latest, Halloween, disco (hence the tiara, she was a queen lololol!)  I just love the Violet Kits and the gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla Studios Bohemian Dream collection I used to make this layout.  I love the watercolor look of my base page, Dreamer, found in the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK).


I took a cutout quote from the Bohemian Bits paper found in the Pretty Little Kit (PLK). I layered it on top of the photos of my daughter up on foam tape.  Here you can see the doily from the TSK that I layered under the photos.  I have used both the paper and vellum ephemera around the photo. The paper ephemera is from the TSK and the vellum ephemera can be found in the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK). The twine and sequin is from the Pretty Little Pieces in the BPK and the heart and dot puffy stickers can be found in the TSK.


In this close up you can see the flair button butterfly that is in the TSK.  The purple paint is from Kaisercraft and can be found in the Colour Kit (TCK) along with the Distress Crayon in Pistachio that I added a little cross in the background.  The happy snaps sticker is from the cardstock stickers from the Bohemian Dream collection in the BPK.



In this photo you can see more of the cardstock word stickers from the BPK, along with the diamante embellishment found in the Pretty Little Pieces in the TSK. I think it tones in perfectly with the tiara in the photo!


So many layers and details in the layout, I've added more paint and ephemera here.


I just love how much you can work with in these kits, it makes every layout or project just look full of detail! I hope that you will come and have a look at the kits and consider subscribing!!  You can find the subscriptions HERE.

Project Life page with Lisa using the VIOLET kits

Hi there
Lisa here today to share a Project Life page - I have created using the VIOLET kits.


This week I definetly didnt shy away from the gorgeous soft pastels & florals in this collection.
So many choices in the Cocoa Vanilla "Bohemian Dream" collection.

This layout is of my gorgeous dog "Pepper" I was creating in my craft room & she whinged until I got her a chair to sit next to me! Yes, it's true. So I had to capture the moment.


The chipboard stickers along with pink alpha that came in the kits were perfect for my title. how gorgeous is that heart paper! Oh My!


These kits have so many gorgeous ephemera pieces - which makes putting a page together so easy.
A simple drawn outline with a pen helps bring all the elements together. 




I layered some doilies from the kit to give it almost a look of being an envelope.



Oh those florals, layering them & adding them in clusters is one of my favourite things to do.

Well that's about it for today's share. I hope showing how I have used these kits - shows just how easy it is to out a Project Life spread together.


Thanks for stopping by.

"Wild" Card Set using the Violet Kits


Hello my crafty friends! Cathi back again!!  This week I have a set of cards using the gorgeous Violet Kits.  I love all the elements included in the kits, as I have so many options for layering when I make my cards.  I just love the gorgeous images and colors in the Bohemian Dream line from Cocoa Vanilla Studio that is featured in the Violet kits.


My first card I chose the Flower Child paper from the Bohemian Dream collection found in the main scrapbooking kit (TSK). I added a stitched border in white around the paper for a nice detail.  I then added a chipboard frame to the card from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK)  On top of the frame I added the butterfly and the Stay a little bit Wild cutouts from the Bohemian Bits paper in the Pretty Little Kit (PLK).  I added the flower ephemera from the TSK as well as the flair. For my final touch for the card I added some pink bling from the TSK as well!


This is my favorite card this week, I just love that little bird!!  I used the Abstract paper from the TSK as my base and then used the bird image cut out form the Bohemian Bits paper in the PLK. I added a stitched frame around both of them for a nice detail and to tie them together with the other card in the set!  The "cherish" die cut I've added in a layer over the bird image which was raised on foam tape. Both the flower ephemera and the cherish die cut are from the TSK.  I finished off the card with some gold bling from the BPK.

I love to make cards with our kits as they are full of gorgeous papers and embellishments to make so many gorgeous and detailed cards!  Next week I will be doing a layout with the kits, so you can do so many 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.

"Remember This" 12X12 Scrapbooking Layout with Lisa

Hi there 
Lisa here today to share a 12x12 layout using the Stunning "Violet" kits.
These kits are jam packed with Cocoa Vanilla Studios - "Bohemian Dream" which is very possibly my most fave collection yet from CVS.

My main focus of this layout other than of course attempting to compliment the photo was to use mainly the blue tones from the collection.
I LOVE all the pastels & the florals but really wanted to challenge myself & concentrate on the blues.

So here is my layout...


I kept it pretty simple, but I think it looks really effective & still really focuses on the photo.
Lots of layers which help create interest & softness.


This cluster with the sweet bird, leaves & feathers is my favourite ...it's so cute!


The word stickers in the collection are white, which you can absolutely still use white ....but are fantastic to alter to suit your layout/theme.
I used the Tim Holtz distress marker that came in the kit. I coloured the words in - then sprayed lightly with water & used a baby wipe to draw out some colour & give them a mottled look.
Once they were dry I splatted some Gold Colour Shine on them.



Some beautiful chipboard & sparkly bling.


Lots of layers, using co-ordinating papers, doily, word stickers & labels.

Thanks so much for stopping by I would love to see what you've created with our kits or this collection. Make sure you tag us on Facebook or Instagram.

Planner Goodies with the Violet Kit!


Hello my friends! Cathi back again!! I am so excited to be back sharing my projects for the newest kit from the Scrappery, the Violet kits!  Australian Post lost my last kit in transit and it has been an age since I have created with the kits and I am excited!!  This week I decided to decorate my planner with the gorgeous Bohemian Dream collection! I make lots of notebook covers, dashboards, folders and a weekly bullet journal spread.



When I decorate my planner, I always make a slipcover for my Hobonichi planner! I love that it protects my planner and looks absolutely gorgeous at the same time.  I've used the Dream Big cutout from the Boho Bits paper in the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) Project Life kit, two of the gorgeous birds from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK) and the text stickers from the PLK. The cover paper itself is the gorgeous floral Abundant paper from the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK). The text stickers and the navy bling were also from the PLK.


I always like to make a folder for my traveler's notebook when I change my decor. I chose the bright and cheery Gypsy Heart paper from the TSK to make mine this month. I added some layers using a 4x6 paper and the gorgeous dreamcatcher cutout from the PLK. The chipboard hearts and gold bling are from the BPK. The text stickers are again from the PLK.
 

I have two dashboards that I use to cover inserts and I switch out the covers in them each time. For this one I used the fun navy polka dot Abundant paper from the TSK and added the cutout quote from the Boho Bits paper in the PLK and some of the ephemera and heart stickers in the TSK.


I love the quote on this one. I used the Flower Child paper from the TSK, a chipboard sticker from the BPK and the heart and dot stickers and feather ephemera from the TSK.


I always do a weekly bullet journal spread and this week I have used my gorgeous paper, stickers and ephemera for my spread.  My date flags are using the Dreamer paper from the TSK, I just punched them out and glued them in!  I used lots of stickers from the PLK and the butterfly ephemera from the TSK.

I hope you like the projects 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.

"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.
