"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

'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.

Pretty Wild - A Traveller's Notebook Layout with the Belle Kits


Hello! Cathi back again with another layout using the Belle kits!  I had this photo of my daughter in a a parade as a wolf, so I thought using the "wild" wood veneer and the title "Pretty Wild" was perfect!


For the main base of my layout I used the Bohemian paper found in the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK). In this closeup you can see the chipboard sticker "pretty" and the wood veneer "wild" both also from the TSK.  The label is from the Fussy Cut paper in the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) as well as the date stamp! The flower and leaf ephemera come from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK).


I've added some word phrases from the cardstock stickers in the PLK.


In my final closeup you can see where I added a rubber charm and ephemera flag from the
BPK.

Pocket Letter with Lisa

Hi there
Lisa here today to share a project using the "Belle" kits.
This week I decided on something a little different - a Pocket Letter.

This is a fun way to work with a collection & it really showcases all the goodies.
I used a coin collector pocket - as I love the size of the squares, they are supercute!

So I just cut lots of squares of patterned paper, put them in each square - ensuring I was mixing up the bolder & softer patterns.


Here are some close ups...
As you can see I decorated each of the squares with different embellishments.
Some of the chunky items like flowers, flair, frames & some die cuts - I stuck to the outside of the pocket.




I love shaker pockets & what could be cuter than a mini one using the gorgeous sequin mix we get in the kits!
I used some co-ordinating washi from my stash to finish it off.


I hope you have enjoyed my share today - I plan to add a letter & send this pocket letter as some happy mail to a friend.

Traveler's Notebook Spread "Sweet" with Cathi and the Belle Kits


The Belle kits just keep on going!! I have a traveler's notebook layout this week to share featuring my usual suspect, my selfie loving older daughter!


I started with some scraps of papers from the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK).  You can see where I have added an ephemera piece onto the photo. The ephemera are found in the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK).  I used the date stamp we got in the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) to add some repeated stamping detail on the left page layout.


In this close up you can see more paper scraps layered under my photo, the gorgeous wooden veneer and Wild at Heart chipboard sticker from the TSK. The rubber charm, so very beautiful, can be found in the BPK. I added some Kaisermist in pink from a past Colour Kit (TCK). I added in some journaling.



Finally, the last details for the TN layout, I am using a cut apart graphic from the Fussy Cut paper in the PLK as well as cardstock phrase sticker from the same kit. The layers of scrapbook paper come from the TSK as well as the chipboard butterfly!

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.

More Cards with my Belle kit!


Hello! Cathi back again with some more cards from the beautiful Belle kits!!  Our kits come so full of papers and embellishments, I couldn't stop myself from making three more cards!!


My first card uses the beautiful Grow Wild paper from the collection for its base. The heart inside the polaroid frame is from the Fussy Cuts sheet. These Grow Wild paper is in the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK) and the Fussy Cuts paper is in the Project Life themed Pretty Little Kit (PLK).  I have added the wooden veneer "'love", the chipboard sticker which says "all" and the polaroid chipboard frame also from the TSK.  The cardstock word stickers "love you to bits" and "my" and the butterfly flair are from the PLK and the gorgeous blooms and ephemera heart are from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK).


My second card also features the beautiful Grow Wild paper from the TSK. I thought it worked perfectly with the "love" stickers making them really stand out. These Love stickers are from the chipboard stickers in the TSK.   I have cut up a chipboard frame also found in the TSK and added it around the edges of the card for a fun graphic element. The wood veneer "you" is also in the main kit. The blooms can be found in the BPK and the fussy cut butterfly and the phrase sticker can both be found in the PLK.


For my final card I went with the bright tribal looking chevron paper, Bohemian, from the TSK.  I have also added a wooden heart and cut up a chipboard frame from the TSK. The Hello Gorgeous is from the Fussy Cut sheet in the PLK as well flair and phrase stickers.  I finished off the card with the leaf and photo corner ephemera and gorgeous little blooms from the BPK.
