"Sweet Dreams" - Lydia

Hi there Scrappery fans, Lydia here to share my first creations as joining The Scrappery CT. I'm so excited to have received my first Scrappery kit last week that I just had to dive straight in and create a layout.

I totally fell in love with this months BPK & TSK 'Lilly' with lots of Cocoa Vanilla Studio products, you can find this months kits in The Scrappery Store. So for my first creation I decided to do a  12x12 layout using both the BPK & TSK 'Lilly' Kits. I decided to use this old selfie o myself because it worked perfectly with all the gorgeous florals in the kit. 

 I did a few layers behind my photo as well as added a glassine bag from the kit and one of the beautiful doilies.  My title I using one of the foam glitter word stickers from PinkFresh Studio and a wood veneer word from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.
Also added a beautiful pink mini tassel from Cocoa Vanilla which is in one of their embellishment packs in the kit.

An here is a close up o the few layers behind my photo with a sequins in which I added to add the final finishing touches to the layout.

Hope you all enjoyed my first creations as part of The Scrappery family and  can't wait to be back soon to share another creation using this months 'Lilly' kits.

Claudia Card Set by Cathi

Every month I use the generous kits to make several layouts and project life spreads, planner goodies and planner spreads and I always like to add a set of a few cards! This month I decided to make four cards using the gorgeous Indigo Hills collection by Pinkfresh Studios featured in our Claudia kits!

For this first card I kept it super simple, adding just the Love resin from the main scrapbooking kit "The Scrappery Kit" (TSK).  The wood veneer hearts are gorgeous and from J. Corbett Creations and they are in the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK).  I added the cardstock sticker #neverfail from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK). To finish off this card I added some yellow stitching.

For my second card I used some printables from Claudia van Rooijen for the Claudia kits!! I fussy cut the camera and added the boxes graphic underneath it from her ephemera sheet.  I again added some heart wood veneers and a sticker from the PLK. I did a simple navy stitched frame around the card to complete the card.

For this card I used a doily that Ronelle had included in the main TSK. The tag is from the ephemera sheet in the printables. I love using lots of little embellishments when I can and this card has tons!! The chipboard hearts are from the TSK as well and Embrace wood veneer and puffy stickers are from the PLK. The word ephemera and the heart veneers are from the BPK.  I added a double line of stitching to frame the card and finish it off.

For my final card I did a lot of layering, using a tag Ronelle included in the main scrapbooking Pretty Little Pieces set. I layered it on top a striped paper from Claudia's Project Life card printouts. The sentiment is a cardstock sticker from the PLK as well as the puffy sticker flower. The rubber "love" sticker and the chipboard hearts are from the main scrapbooking kit TSK. I finished this card off again in the yellow thread.

I hope you enjoyed seeing another way to use your kits. The cards are a great way to use all those amazing embellishments that the kits are full of!  Thanks so much for visiting and you can sign up for any of these monthly kits HERE.

12x12 Layout using Cut file - "Pepper"

Hi there, Lisa here today sharing a 12x12 layout using the gorgeous "Claudia kits" from The Scrappery Kit Club.

I've used a cut file from The Cut Shoppe to create my background. The cut file was cut on my Silhouette Cameo.
The photo is of our adorable dog Pepper - she is a Spoodle & we love her to bits!

Using a cut file is a great way to create interest to your page & you usually only need scraps to create a really fabulous page.

Here are some close ups...I used lots of the gorgeous papers from the kit to mat the photo & to back some of the stars. 
I also used some of the ephemera, alpha stickers & sequins from the kit. I even managed to sneak some more of the gorgeous tissue paper in (from the kits packaging!)

I used glue with a fine tip to attach the patterned paper to the back of the stars & to attach  the entire background on to a blank piece of white card stock. I didn't apply glue everywhere as I like to create the appearance of it just sitting on the page. It helps to create depth. I also adhered some of the white star cut outs by layering them with foam tape.

I also brushed some perfect peals powder on some of the stars - it's a little hard to see in the photos, but it looks great in real life.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my layout & will pop on over to the shop if you'd like to check out our kits.

My Layouts and Project Life Spreads with the Claudia Kit - Cathi

I'd love to share with you this week two 6x12 layouts and accompanying Project Life Spreads that I have made with the gorgeous Claudia Scrappery kits!  These kits are full of goodies from Pinkfresh Studios Indigo Hill range and lots of amazing extras put together by Ronelle, our fearless and talented leader/kit club owner!  My daughter got her first character role with a production her youth ballet did in October, the Dormouse in a modern version of Alice in Wonderland!  I did this first layout with a photo of her her as the maid/dormouse with Alice, I thought it was such a pretty photo and wanted to get her in both her costumes (you can't see it in the photo too well but the maid still has her mouse nose and whiskers and her tail!).

I absolutely love this paper with the half circles, so elegant and fun at the same time. In this close up yu can see some of the splashes I did and a lot of layers made with Project Life cards, tabs and papers from Indigo Hills.  I love the wooden clips included in the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK) and I added one here to my layers. You can also see some of the ephemera and a wooden heart from J. Corbett Creations wood veneers. The veneers, the floral washi tape and the ephemera can also be found in the Bits and Pieces Kit!

Here you can get a good closeup of the photo along with more wood clips which I cut down to be embellishments by snipping off the clip parts! The beautiful die cut is from the Ephemera packet and here you can see lots of sequins and chipboard hearts being used from the Scrappery Kit (TSK) the main kit.

In my final close up of the layout you can see the pompom trim I added from the main Scrappery Kit and the You are capable of amazing things comes from the ephemera pack in the BPK.

Here is how my Project Life spread and the layout look together in my album, I added a bit of the wide washi from the Bits and Pieces kit to finish off the look:

I really enjoyed adding in the tickets from the show and some more action shots of my daughter performing. Once upon a time she was quite shy onstage, she was Alice in her schools own production and while she danced that at age 11 just fine, she wasn't embracing and acting out the role, whereas she really took on this character now at 13 with a great deal of enjoyment! It was great to see her really perform onstage. She has been in love with dance since she was 8 and dancing since she was 4, she eats sleeps and breathes it!

Here is a closeup of the pocket that held the tickets we kept. It was great to have these as part of the memory keeping. I used my tiny attacher to staple the tickets onto the paper and then used alphas from all three kits to make my title!

I love this rubber charm that says hello today, so I kept that pocket simple and just used one of the Project Life 3x4 papers as a background and added the rubber tag.  The photo of Aine and her friend is great, they look like they are having so much fun! I thought the wooden Fun shape from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) was perfect for this photo pocket and the ephemera from the collection "hmmm.... YES!" they both seemed to fit perfectly.

My daughter seems to be defying gravity in this photo. I added a fun collage with a chipboard heart and rubber charm from the main Scrappery Kit and the ephemera piece "enjoy" from the BPK. I really do heart this one!! I finished off the collage with more staples from my tiny attacher.

Thank goodness for my daughter's ballet company taking loads of photos, I have become worse at documenting our kids lives as they've gotten older. My youngest especially refuses at most times to even let me take her photo. Luckily the ballerina isn't camera shy so I can usually find some photos to document.  Macnas is a parade here in Ireland, very interactive with lots of performers and large papier mache type is always at Halloween time and her youth ballet company are always part of it.  She was chosen this year to do the parade both in Galway where their company is based and in the capital city, Dublin, she and her fellow dancers were a pack of wolves and I just love how the photos turned out!!

In this first close up you can see I used the yellow doily from the TSK main kit as the base of my photo cluster. I tucked in a few bits of paper scraps under the photo and added another wooden clip. YOu can also see the gold glittery title  I made using Thickers from the main kit.

Here you can see the twine I used from the Pretty Little Kit's Pretty Little Pieces set, which also includes the sequins added here. I added some ephemera and and more chipboard hearts to add detail. Look at my baby girls leg, goodness me, how does it get up that high!

I finished off the layout with the "every day has a story" ephemera piece and the moments captured with love.

Here is how the layout and Project Life page fit together. I love these photos. The girls seems to be having a great time interacting with the crowds.I added some of the blue washi from the main kit to holes area again.

It took a while to confirm, but the shoes and the red hair make this definitely a photo of my daughter! I love the smiles on the girls faces she is interacting with!  I've used another wood veneer here from J. Corbett Creations, a wooden hear, chipboard heart and some sequins. I love the ephemera piece "this way for cool vibes".

On the left I selected a great photo from the parade of one of the Papier Mache creatures. You can see the little boy in the bottom of the photo to get perspective on how amazing these creatures were.  I added the "fun" resin piece to this phot and a half circle ephemera piece, adding a few staples from my tiny attacher. The next 3x4 pocket used a piece of paper from the PLK and a rubber sticker from the main kit. I added a bit of journaling here about the performances. Aine wasn't chosen for any extra performing opportunities last year and she really wanted to do this one. She was so proud of her herself for auditioning and getting the chance to do this. Well done my little girl!

I love my final photo in the spread, all the wolves that made their way to Dublin for the second night's performance. The grey resin piece that says memories fit perfect, as well as the "amazing" wood veneer. I used a a label made by Claudia Van Rooijen for our kits to add the location and date stamping.

There are still a few of the kits available in the shop you can find them here:

"Besties" 9x12 Layout

Hi there
Lisa here - today I am sharing a 9x12 layout using the gorgeous "Claudia"kits.

These kits are so versatile, the bold blues in the kit lend themselves to making vibrant creations, whilst the pretty florals allow you to create beautiful, soft, feminine projects. 
I am a big fan of clean & simple layouts - with lots of white space. This also stretches your kit a long way too!

The photo is a 'Snapchat' photo of my daughter & one of her besties. Not a perfect photo - but a gorgeous one, perfect for scrapping. The papers in the collection match the soft florals in the photo beautifully.

Some close ups, I cut the beautiful gold foiled vellum with my fringing scissors to create some interest & texture.  Lots of layers & a pretty doily.
I made a tassel using some patterned paper, I did this by fringing the paper first then rolling it around a thin paint brush. I wiped gold ink on the ends & added some gold washi to the top.
The cute white & black bow is from the previous months kit.

Layering papers & adding washi strips creates definition to the area that I have mainly scrapped in.
I used a cork heart & resin flower from my stash.

In the main photo you can see I used the days of the week washi to create a border on the top & bottom of the layout. I folded it over, I love the soft look - it meant that I also don't have to see the days of the week for this particular layout.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you'll check out the kits if you're not already a subscriber.
If you are - we would love to see what you create, so make sure you share with us on instagram & or our Facebook page.

Planner Projects with my Claudia Scrappery Kit!!

I absolutely love to use my kits to pretty up my planner every month! Here I have a dashboard, folder, notebook cover and Hobonichi planner cover made from the Pinkfresh Studios collection Indigo Hills which is part of the Claudia kits and which all look great in my traveler's notebook! I have used ephemera and lots of other embellishments from the Scrappery kits.  Below you will see a video of my projects described in more detail and in situ in my planner.

Finally, I couldn't resist using the washi, ephemera and cardstock stickers in this weekly spread. I think it turned out great!!
