Love My Sister so much// Scrapbook Layout

Welcome back my scrapbooking friends!  I have been on a roll this week with scrapping from my stash.  I obviously have not been spending money on many supplies lately since becoming a new mom.  And I am currently not on any design teams in which I would be given new products to feature in my layouts.  I get the liberty to bust out some oldies but goodies I've purchased and hoarded this entire time.  For this layout, I was inspired by the lovely Paige Evans and a layout she did a year ago it seems.  But I am not featuring any of her products, this is all Amy Tangerine.  

I first started out fussy cutting out all the florals from a patterned paper called Knot + Bow from the Better Together collection by Amy Tangerine.  

I loved the contrast of this navy patterned paper called Explore from the Finders Keepers collection by Amy Tangerine.  All these beautiful papers just sitting in my crafty room.  

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the LOVE letters on white card stock and then took white embroidery thread and did a back stitch along the edge.  It added texture and detail to the layout.

I used two others Alpha Thickers from my stash as well to compete my title.  All were from collections from Amy Tangerine once again.  

I embellished my layout with three white butterflies, a few buttons, rubber pieces and stickers from my stash on my desk.  Its time to use these beautiful products.  

Thank you for stopping by and spending some time with me.  My process video is below to view.

Family Love// Scrapbook Layout

Hello Scrappy Friends!  I have a fun memorial day layout/ Forth of July layout for you.  I was inspired by the lovely Paige Evans recently and was inspired to create a red white and blue layout.  I cut out the star with my Silhouette Cameo and the cut file was Scalloped Stars with Star Nested ID # 57557.  I then used Red Apple inexpensive Appel Barrel acrylic paint to brush on some stripes. 

I decided on a blue card stock background to create a very patriotic color scheme.  I did some paint splatters in red and white.  

I was able to use both interlay size stars on this layout including the parts I cut off.  I love the bold look it gives the layout.  

'Family Love' title is from an Amy Tangerine collection and the embellishments are all from my stash.  The flare is from Feed Your Craft, the clear acrylic stars are from Shimelle, the stickers from a Hobby Lobby sticker book and w sunglass wood veneer from my collection.  

I finished off the details with Nuvo gold drops around the stars of the layout.  I love the little gold shine.  I have the process video below.  Thank you for stopping by.

Hello my memory keeping friends!  Thank you for joining me for another fun memory keeping project.  For this project I am jumping into the May 2018 pocket page kit called Bicycles.  This kit has the same 6x6 patterned papers has the 12x12 kit but it included a ton of exclusive 3x4 cards and 4x6 cards to use in your pocket page albums. 

I am documenting the week of Mothers Day.  My almost 6 month old enjoyed her first solid foods which was butternut squash.  She loved it and also made a mess.  My two doxies are getting use to having a baby around and I enjoyed taking her to work with me this week as well.  And on the weekend I enjoyed my first Mothers Day and spent time with the family.  I have been able to keep up with a PL album with my limited scrapbooking time for the last 6 months. 

I fell in love with the red floral patterned paper from the 12x12 kit, so when I saw it again in this kit I simply had to use it on both spread so they are cohesive together.  I used all the embellishments included in this kit from the stamps, exclusive die cuts, washi tape, stickers and cards.  

I love working with kits because all the products work together and your layouts can come together quickly.  I have a short process video for this double page layout for your viewing pleasure on my YouTube channel.

Good day scrappy friends!!  Evi here again with a 12x12 scrapbook layout using the May 2018 Summer Wishes Memory Keeping kit.  This kit has beautiful colors perfect for summer photo documenting.  I love the patterned paper called Sunshine because it already looks like mixed media with its large rainbow paint splatters.  I love the look of paint splatters.  And I love rainbow colors, so I absolutely had to use this patterned paper for a layout.

I then used the yellow card stock included in the kit as well as Sunkissed and used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out a 3 layered butterfly called Layered Butterfly Garland, ID #133094.  I made two different patches at two different sizes so that I could have the variation.

I clustered the three layers with the patterned paper and the yellow card stock.  Loved how these butterflies turned out.

I am scrapping two cute photos of Valentina hanging out in a white tiny rocking chair. It was a sunny beautiful day and the light is pretty and she is just a happy baby all the time.  

The kit includes a 3x4 stamp set and I used a tiny sun smily face using black ink randomly on the layout for added black contrast.  I matted my photos on black paper and I used an exclusive phrase die cuts for my title, 'Love This Documented.'

Colorful die cut pieces are also included in the kit and used a few on fun foam to add more dimension to the layout.  Scrapping with these fun colorful butterflies and this paint splatter background made this layout come together easy for me.  I filmed my process video for this layout on my YouTube channel.  Please hop over and take a look.  

Here is my process video.

Good day my memory keeping friends!  My name is Evi and I am the guest designer for the month of May for Cocoa Daisy memory keeping kits.  I fell in love with the floral patterned paper from the collection called Good Times and took the time to cut out these red florals individually.  I find fussy cutting to be a calming activity to do.  I cut about half the sheet up and I have half to use later.

I then start off with white card stock and use a Prima stencil called Foliage with Golden light modeling paste.  I leave the modeling paste white because I did not want to take away from the red florals.  It adds interest and texture to the background.  

I used Scotch Tacky glue to adhere the flowers down in a cluster around the top right corner around the photo.  I use fun foam to add some dimension to a few of the flowers and my photo.  The kit includes a 3x4 stamp set and i use the foliage stamp with black archival ink to add some contrast to the background.  For an added detail I also stamp the tiny doodled triple heart randomly in the background as well.  Love these little details in my layouts. 

The photo is of my daughter and I wearing matching mommy and me headbands I made.  Valentina is almost 6 months old and I have tons of photos to scrap.  I am learning to adjust to mom life and realize I do not always have time to scrap.  

I also use a few of the die cuts from the kit to add an embellishment cluster below and above the photo. The Cocoa Daisy also includes exclusive black phrase die cuts and I use one saying, 'Our Life in Photos' as my title for this layout.  

Summer Wishes is a beautiful whimsical colorful collection and I enjoyed using it for this layout.  I filmed a process video and it is posted on my YouTube channel.  Stay tuned for a few more projects from me.
