"LOVE" - Lydia

Good morning beautiful Scrappery peeps, Happy Sunday! Am I glad that it is the weekend and the first week down of school. This past week I started Grade 11 so it's been quite crazy. But today I am sharing another 12x12 layout using the December "Nigella" kits.

I had seen someone cut this constellation paper into the circle and I loved it so I decided to use that, add my photo to the top right corner of the circle and add a floral cluster down in the bottom left corner.

I love adding a little bit of texture with some whit thread behind my photo and clusters, because you all know I love clusters haha.

Now at first I wasn't to fussed on the cork and gold glitter embellishment stickers. This was because I found they were chunky and big to what I am compared to what I like to use but I really like the contrast of the cork brown against the navy blue.
This layout defiantly isn't the clean and white space type of layout I love to create but I knew I had to change it up a bit to use this constellation paper. So in the bottom left corner on the edge of the circle and the little white space I had I added some fussy cut florals and some small embellishments to form a cluster to make the layout balanced.
I added two of the beautiful puffy stickers, some washi from the washi sheets, a label and the pink butterfly rub-on.
And to finish the layout off I added some of the KaiserCraft gold splatters using the spray that came in the TCK (The Colour Kit). I hope you all like this layout and I will be back next week for another layout.

Project Life and Layout with the Nigella Kits

I am absolutely loving the Pink Paislee Moonstruck collection included in this month's Nigella kits!! For years I did 12x12 scrapbooking, but now my Project Life and scrapbook pages are all 6x12 a great size for me and with the flatter scrapbooking I do now, I can keep things in albums instead of storage boxes and I really enjoy the new size!! This layout and Project Life spread are about my daughter growing up so fast!! I found these photos of her and her friends on my iPad and went back through my photos and found ones from when they were tiny! Can't believe how much these girls have changed!!  My layout features a photo of Aine ready for her last disco, sigh...too grown up already!

Here is my Project Life spread. I used lots of different papers from the Scrapbooking Kit (TSK) all part of the Moonstruck collection. I really am enjoying using a strip of scrapbooking papers along the edges this time! I think I will try that again.  I still can't get over how much these girls have changed!!

Here is Aine's best friend she had all through primary school, they have drifted apart now that they are in different secondary schools, but they are still friends and met up at the disco! I can't get over it now, my little babies all grown up!!  For this pocket I used the gorgeous feather paper from the collection cut into 4 x 6. I added a cork feather and star, a washi sticker, and a puffy sticker all from the TSK to this photo and added some clear rhinestones from the Bit and Pieces Kit (BPK).

Here is another friend of Aine's now and then! I have used several cork stickers and a washi sticker here and a few more rhinestones. Again, I used another piece of the 4 x 6 feather paper for this card.

For the 3x4 card slots I added some different papers for the backgrounds, a great phases of the moon paper and the teal patterned paper.  I printed out and cut some journaling strips to add to the moon paper and then added a doily and a journaling card from the 6x6 papers popped up on foam on top of the doily.  On the journalling card I added a few more rhinestones and a cork star.

On the other side of my Project Life spread, I have added a 6x12 layout.  For this layout I have used lots of goodies from the new Color Kit (TCK). I have used a piece of white cardstock for my base,  I used some mesh ribbon included in the BPK along with some fussy cut flowers and ripped papers from the Moonstruck collection to layer under the photo of my beautiful daughter.

Here you can see where I have added a paperclip from the Pretty Little Pieces set in the BPK. I added a tab from the TSK as well as puffy stickers and washi stickers. The rubons are from the BPK.

Here you can see where I used the heart stencil to add the Heidi Swapp Silver Metallic Paste. You can see where I misted with the Kaisercraft Turquoise Mist and added splashes from the Antique Gold Kaiser Mist. I added the Gingham stamp in black and pink distress inks.

This cute bow came from the TSK Pretty Little Pieces set along with the sequins. and you can see where I have added some star rub ons, and some washi stickers along with some turquoise splashes. I finished off the layout with some simple journaling "So grown up, where did the time go?"

I really enjoyed using my Scrappery Kits again and am so glad to have them in my hands again! I have another layout and Project Life spread to share next week and some cards and home decor to follow in the future weeks!! Can't wait to get more creative with these kits!!

Project Life Spread - with Lisa

Hi there - Lisa here today, sharing a Project Life spread.
I have used the gorgeous "Nigella" kits.

I do scrap both traditionally & Project Life.
I was a little slack with my PL last year, however I'm off to a good start this year.

I don't focus on weeks ie. week 1-52, rather I just scrap whatever photos i have & keep it fairly chronological.

Here is a look at the double spread, photos permitting I usually do a double layout.

Here are some more close ups...

Kits are a fabulous for completing Project Life. Everything co-ordinates so beautifully it makes creating a breeze.

Thanks for stopping by.
Make sure you check out or kits here.

"Dream" - Lydia

It's Sunday, which means another layout from me. Today I am using the new "Nigella" kits again which as I have mentioned before I am in love with.

So here is this weeks layout. This weeks layout I feature the gorgeous die cut 12x12 sheet this is in the kit. Now this has a bright mint colour ide and the white side, I personally liked the white on white look.

I love, love these Pink Paislee "Moonstruck" cork words and shapes, so I decided to use the dream as my title. And I love how these cork embellishments have gold glitter in them too. I also added a little puffy sticker under the title also.

Now you all know I love my little clusters. I used some of the "Moonstruck" rub-on's and put them on some white cardstock and fussy cut them out so that they had more of a 3D look. I also added some of the beautiful gold sequins.

With this die cut 12x12 piece defiantly wanted to back the butterflies with some of the patterned paper. I love how the page just came together once I had backed some of the butterflies.

And last but not least another cluster up on the left hand side with a little tab, puffy sticker and some gold sequins.

I hope you have all started/have your new kits and be sure to share what you create over in the Facebook group.

Have a wonderful week ahead.

Nigella Kit Traveler's Notebook Projects by Cathi

Hello my friends, Cathi here again!! I am back again to start sharing my projects here with the Scrappery!!  My Lilly kit and Christmas kits went missing in the post and never arrived, so I was so delighted to be able to work on projects again when the Nigella kits arrived on my doorstep!  I almost always start with my traveler's notebook, as I absolutely love to to change out my planner decor with each new kit!! I even have some planner spreads I have shown on the video below as well as the covers and folders I have made. I really feel that these kits are amazing not only for Project Life and Scrapbooking for planning as well, an extra reason to get these kits!!  I will be able to get several Scrapbooking layouts, Project Life spreads and I also have plans for cards, tags and off the page home decor!! Look for these in future weeks, I can't wait to share!

My first planner project is this beautiful floral paper from the Moonstruck collection! It is covering my favorite Hobonichi journal and I find these covers make the journal's plain cover protected and stronger as well as just being beautiful. I make a cover that can slip on and off the journal and isn't glued onto it so can be changed out each month. These slip covers also make pockets on the front and back inside covers which is great for keeping little bits and pieces needed for reference, etc.  For my decor on the cover I have used the Moonstruck collection from the Nigella Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK) and Scrappery Kit (TSK). I have used the gorgeous puffy stickers, cork stickers and washi stickers to decorate this cover.

Every month I have a monthly vertical insert that I use for memory keeping and which I always use stickers, lettering an photographs to decorate. I always love to make a gorgeous cover for these inserts, again using the beautiful Moonstruck paper featuring one of my favorite Boho motifs, feathers! I have added washi tape stickers, jewels and puffy stickers from the Scrappery Kit as well as a label from the BPK

I always add a folder to my travelers notebook, this time using the gorgeous butterfly paper from the Moonstruck collection. Again I have used the puffy stickers, washi stickers and cork stickers to add decor.

My final projects are two dashboards featuring papers from the Nigella TSK and journal cards and washi tape from the Scrappery owner Ronelle's Cute & Sweet Dori kit featuring these Reset Girl goodies!!

I've recorded a video going through my traveler's notebook sharing pieces from the Scrappery Kit and share it with you here :

Pepper 12x12 Layout - with Lisa

Hi there
Today I am sharing a 12x12 layout I have created using the "Nigella" Kits.
I am so in love with these kits, Ronelle has done an amazing job. 
Pink Paislee "Moonstruck" collection is the main feature & it is just gorgeous.'

The photo is of our gorgeous four legged friend "Pepper" We have had Pepper for almost 3 years now, she will be turning 6. She is a Spoodle, She has such a gorgeous nature - we love her to bits. 
As you can see she is very black! So hard to photograph!

I started with a white card stock base as I knew I wanted to do a little bit of white on white with the doily. I also knew I wanted to fussy cut some of the gorgeous flowers from the floral patterned paper.

I cut a 3inch strip of the Navy dot paper, then cut it in 1/2 on the diagonal.
I used some of the thin washi from the kits to create a further border which gives definition to the layout.

Here is a look at the detail, I used lots of the rub-ons, to create the continuity of the floral pieces. 

I hope you've enjoyed my share today!

Make sure you check out our kits as they are excellent value.

"Myself & I" - Lydia

Happy Sunday Scrappery friends. I hope you are all hopefully having a creative day. So today I am back to share another layout using the new "Nigella" December kits. Now I have to say this would have to be my favourite kits so far because I absolutely LOVE these kits and the layouts I am producing with them.

Here is my layout.

I love these kits so much that I have been using all photos of me on my layouts as these colours in the kits are just so me. I did add my own thickers from my stash to add a bit of with the gold glitter.

I finally got my little mixed media groove on and added some of the gorgeous Heidi Swapp Silver Metallic Texture Paste which comes in the brand new TCK "The Colour Kit. Now I am not one for silver and gold together but I love how this added a nice feature to the layout with the bit of gold also.

Now these gold paperclips are to die for. I think I have used one on every layout. But I though it would be a cute feature to add it to look like it is holding that gorgeous "Moonstruck" collection puffy sticker to my photo and photo layers. I also added some of the washi tape strips as well as some of the Kaisercraft Rhinestones.

I added some gold rub-on stars also from the kits to add a little something to the layout.

This tiny embellishment cluster at the bottom of the layout is using the beautiful washi tape shapes. I love how translucent they are and how soft they look on he layout.

And to finish it off I add a cluster at the bottom of the page with some washi stickers and a rub-on. Also added a mini puffy sticker and some more of the Kaisercraft Rhinestones.

I hope you love this layout as much as I do and make sure to share your creations using the "Nigella" kits over on the Scrappery FB group.

"Carpe Diem" - Lydia

Hey everyone Lydia here to share my first creation using the new December 'Nigella' kits.

I am so excited to have received my new kits this week to sharing off the creating for 2017.
With these kits came the brand new TCK 'The Colour Kit' which is perfect for all you mixed media fans. In the projects I will be sharing in the next few weeks I will e using the TSK, BPK and the TCK.

Here is my first creation. I am so in love with these kits which are full to the brim with Pink Paislee "Moonstruck" collection.

What not to title my layout "Carpe Diem" to seize the day. Also how cute is that gold bow?
Now I have to admit when the scrapbooking companies started bringing out the washi booklets/sheets I wasn't too fussy, but now I love them. You get s many different little washi strips and shapes and they are perfect for all projects.

How could I not add more of the shiny gold to this layout especially this gold leaf lace which is also  the kit as well as those gorgeous delicate paper doilies.

Now I can't remember the last time I used a rub-on but it felt so good to use one. That beautiful floral is from the "Moonstruck" rub-on pack which is in the BPK. I also added a few gold and black sequins to finish the page off a bit.

And I added more gold..... This beautiful gold Kaisermist which is included in the new TCK was perfect for this layout. Also did a little cluster up in the top left corner to bring the page together.

That my scrappy friend is the first layout for you. I can't wait to hear when you ll start to receive your kits and get creating with them.
Lydia xxx
