Good Times// ScrapbookingStore.com Design Team


Hello scrapping ladies!  Its been a busy summer at the office and I have not found a lot of time to scrap at night.  But, I did find time to complete this summery layout this past weekend.  I am using the July scrapbooking kit from Scrapbookingstore.com.  I am part of their design team and love playing with their products.


The kit features the Paradise Escape collection from BoBunny and I absolutely love the colors in this collection.  Its pastel and summery.  I first used a TCW stencil called Bursting Jewels with 3D gel from Finnabar and sprinkled iridescent glitter on top while it was still wet.  Let that part dry fully before moving on.


The effect this gave the background is amazing.  I love the texture, the sparkle and it twinkles in the light.  A real lovely effect, if you dare to give it a try.


I used a 2 inch circle punch to cut from 6 different patterned papers.  I tried to use mostly the blue patterned papers to have them all match.  I am still scraping photos from my Mothers Day Photo Shoot and my dress is also blue so it all corresponded.


Then it is time to embellish the circles.  I used the empherma pack from the collection and stickers from a Jen Hadfield collection that were also included in the kit.  Each circle received at least two pieces of embellishments.  I used alpha from my stash for the small titles across a few of the circles.  I have linked my process video below for your viewing pleasure.  Thanks for spending some time with me.

Hello Scrappy Sparklers! I have a beautiful layout to share with you today using the Peaches n Cream sequins from Spiegelmom Scraps shop. To outline this Paige Evan's cut file took some time. I did it in sections while playing with Valentina over the weekend. I choose to a peach colored card stock to use for the cut file to match the sequins in this pack.


I alternated the sequin from the pack so two of the same color were never next to each other. This sequin pack had cream, peach, iridescent white, iridescent pink and an occasional aqua colored sequin.


For my added embellishments I went through florals from Maggie Holmes and Paige Evans collections along with epoxy stickers from the blush collection from My Minds Eye. I kept in mind to choose flowers all with the peach coloring to compliment the rest of the layout.


The photos I am scrapping are from my Mothers Day photoshoot. I had a friend capture some very special little moments with Valentina. I simply love them all.


Once a majority of the layout was complete I then wanted to add more details to this gorgeous dollie cut file. So, I added gold Nuvo drops in the areas that did not have sequins. I love this last detail element to the layout. It makes it special.



This layout was a slow process to the details and its simply lovely. I hope you were inspired.

Hello my scrappy friends! Scrapbooking is so therapeutic for me. Is it for you? I can have a crazy day, but if i can be given an hour to scrap, it all eases away. For this colorful layout I used the Rainbow Bright pack around the edge of all the butterflies. The cut file is from Confessions of a Paper addict.


Once I had my cut file backed with colorful paper from the Horizon collection by Paige Evans, I began my mixed media work. I protected the inside portion and did paint splatters around the edges with Distress Oxides Sprays in raspberry, marigold, mermaid lagoon, wilted violet and cracked Pistachio.


Once the splatters were dried I then used a paint brush and liquid glue to adhere the Rainbow Bright sequin to the layout boarder. This process took some time to get just right.


I used the same colors for the splatters to color in this ephemera pieces from a Heidi Swapp pack that has resist elements on them.  So I was able to have them match perfectly with the rest of the layout.


The picture I am scrapping is of Valentina at her first Easter Egg hunt this year. We only got a few eggs but she was so cute in her little dress and ears.


My title is from a Maggie Holmes collection in gold metallic script.  It was so sweet and perfect for this colorful layout.  Thank you as always for joining me. Till next time.

Hello Scrappy Ladies! I have a fun black and white layout with a pop of color layout for today. I am using Funky New Year for the details to this layout and it compliments this layout perfectly.


I started out with using my Silhouette Cameo to cut out nested stars on black and white chevron patterned paper. I decided to use coral colored card stock, but I also auditioned turquoise, aqua and hot pink. The coral I just liked a bit more.


When I used all the stars with patterned paper, it was hard on the eyes, so I flipped some of the stars to show the solid white paper in the back and that helped settle the eyes a bit.

I book ended the layout with strips of the black and white paper on the left and right side. My photo is of a funny face Valentina made while at the park recently. Love all the faces of Valentina. I matted the photo on black paper and left the 90 degree corners. I have been using the corner rounder lately but with the stars I left them be.


Funky New Year was the sequin pack that worked perfectly with this layout. My added details were adding clusters of these sequins together all around the layout. A small pop of color was added with the title and a few other star elements from this thicker pack.


Love You// Mixed Media Scrapbook Layout


Hello Scrappin Ladies!  I simply love how this layout turned out.  It was a labor of love to fussy cut all the flowers from one patterned paper, but I wanted them all bunched together.  I used two patterned papers from the Maggie Holmes Willow Lane collection for this layout.  


I cut up a the stripes up to arrange all along the bottom of the page to anchor the layout.  I was torn between two photos, I went with this photo of Zoe and Valentina together because it was a horizontal orientation.


Once I had my basic layout set, I could have left the white card stock alone and it would have been a beautiful layout.  But, you know me and my love for mixed media and playing with my art supplies... so that is what i did.  


I did the 'packaging' technique with Distress Oxide inks in Picked Raspberry and Marigold.  The pink and orange color compliment the flowers and the details in the stripes.


The title and dimensional stickers all came from the coordinating thicker pack for Willow Lane.  


I then added a few of the gold embossed floral elements from the Maggie Holmes Sunny Days collection.


This layout is feminine and floral and I love my two girls in the photo.  My process video is linked below for your viewing pleasure.  Thanks for stopping by.


Hello Cutie// Monochromatic Cut File Layout


Hello lovely ladies! Its Evi, and I have a gorgeous monochromatic layout to share with you, and it was inspire once again my the lovely Paige Evans. She has become someone I am inspired by a lot recently with her work. The sequins added for detail in this layout is Tropical Teal.


I started out with the butterfly cut file available by Paige Evans and cut it on white card stock. I then went through my stash to find a color I had a whole collection that would match. I decided on a heavily blue patterned paper pad from Michaels. I backed the cute file with 4 different patterned papers from it and made sure to spread the patterns around.


I backed the cut file and added fun foam to add dimension to my layout. I printed my cute photo of Valentina while shopping with me at Michaels for this layout. I have been using my corner rounder a lot recently for my photos.


Once the placement was chosen and I then went into my stash to find blue embellishment pieces that can continue to make my layout monochromatic. I added two embellishments with navy and coral flowers to the opposite corners. I didn’t want to add the coral but then when I was going through my sequins, Tropical Teals has deep aqua, light blue and coral pieces. It matched perfectly.


The final details are always my sequins. I love deciding where to place them. White splatters were added as the final touch.





Thank you so much for joining me. Till my next layout, keep scrapping.
Evi

Hello my Scrappy Ladies! I hope everyone is doing wonderful this lovely spring day. Today’s floral layout is perfect for the lovely spring weather we are experiencing here in Florida. I am featuring two different April release sequins packs in this layout, Spring Fling and Hippity Hoppity. These two packs complimented the colors of the florals.


These florals are from an older Paige Evans collection that I fussy cut out from a 12×12 paper. The pastel color palette went perfectly with the dress Valentina is wearing in the photos.


There are actually two cut files used in this layout but a majority of both are covered by the large flower arrangements. One is a circular repeat pattern on white card stock for added interest to the background. The other is a daisy flower wreath underneath all the flowers that peaks out with the pink card stock around the wreath arrangement.


I am scrapping two recent photos of Valentina striking a pose with her favorite stuffed animal. She was wearing a borrowed hot pink bow and rainbow sunglasses to complete her fashionista moment. There are 5 more great poses to use, but I thought the two standing up were great together. I matted them with white card stock and rounded all the corners.


Once the flowers were in place the sequins added can start. I first went in with Hippoty Hoppity with the white dimensional flower pieces all around the circle and then I went in with the mint green sequins and the blue flowers too. I only added the pink sequins from the Spring Fling pack.


I love the sprinkling of added detail the sequin provide to any layout. This spring layout makes my heart so happy. I hope you are playing with some sequins on your layouts.  My process video is linked below for your viewing pleasure.  Till next layout.
