My Creative Scrapbook September Tutorial

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a good day.  It's Lee-Anne here and today I wanted to share another step by step tutorial of the layout below that I created from the My Creative Scrapbook September 2016 Creative Kit.

My Creative Scrapbook September 2016 Creative Kit
I  enjoyed creating with this fun kit.  It had plenty of papers and embellishments from the new American Crafts Shimelle Starshine Collection.


Here we go:

Begin with a 12X12 inch piece of white of card stock.  This will be used for the background to build the layout on.

Cut the blue star paper 7 1/2 inches long by 6 inches wide and adhere to the white cardstock background.


 Cut the blue diagonal striped paper 8 1/2 inches long by 7 3/4 inches wide and adhere to the blue star paper leaving about a half inch of the blue star paper above and to the left of the blue diagonal stripe paper.  Adhere.

Cut the six squares of patterned paper from the paper sheet that has rectangle and square patterned papers and adhere to the blue diagonal stripe paper as shown below.  Add the strip of scalloped striped paper and adhere as shown below.



Add the yellow stripe chipboard frame and place it over the patterned paper squares as shown below.  Add the "adventure is waiting" chipboard square inside of the yellow stripe chipboard frame. Adhere.


Mat a 3 X 4 photo with the yellow paper and adhere to the right of the yellow stripe chipboard frame.


Add the balloon flair button to the bottom right corner of the photo as shown below.


Adhere the green "brilliant" chipboard die cut to the bottom of the photo.  Be sure to center it before sticking it down onto the photo.


Adhere the pink tab to the right of the photo and also the "blue love" chipboard banner and grey heart button as shown.


Fussy cut the "the sky's the limit" paper and adhere below the navy polka dot square patterned paper as shown.  Adhere the yellow button to the left of the paper.


Add the star flower flair button to on top of the yellow stripe chipboard frame and adhere.  


Add the "make a wish" chipboard above the star paper. Adhere the turquoise button to the left of the chipboard.


Add the chipboard "go with all your heart" arrow to the bottom of the striped yellow chipboard frame directing the eye to the photo.


Add the three small chipboard stars to the top right side of the layout as shown on the layout.


Adhere the small chipboard star circle and the white foam alphas as shown on the layout.


Add the "dream" diecut to the left of the title "big".  Adhere the pink chipboard "dreams come true" piece above the "dream" diecut. 


To complete the layout, I added the year on the pink tab to the right of the photo with a black fine pen, and also typed out my journaling on a white piece of card stock and adhered it to the blue diagonal striped paper.  

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial.  This layout of my daughter was inspired by the September Sketch at My Creative Sketches, which is the sketch site for My Creative Scrapbook.   If you play along with the sketch and link up your layout at My Creative Sketches, you have a chance to win a fabulous prize.  The deadline is October 14 (EST midnight) to link up and the random draw for the winner will be announced October 15.

ABC Layout

Hello friends! Today I am sharing a school themed layout at Just Nick 
Digital Cut Files using the Online Alpha cut file on the white card stock background.


I decided that I would use my Silhouette sketch pens for my layout so I took the Silhouette Cameo blade out and replaced it with a black sketch pen and let the Silhouette Cameo draw the design onto the white card stock.


Once it was drawn, I wanted to add some color to the alphabet so I inked the letters with different colors of Ranger Distress Ink (Faded Denim, Squeezed Lemonade, Tumbled Glass, Citron, and Barn Door).  I embellished the outside edges of the layout with cute crayon puffy stickers from Paper House Productions.  





I used the Outline Alpha Cut File for my layout.


I love using my sketch pens.  Be sure and check out all the designs at Just Nick Digital Cut Files.  Thanks for stopping by.

Wizard Of Oz Layout

Hello friends! Today I am on the Paper House Productions blog sharing this Wizard Of Oz Layout using some papers and stickers from the Wizard Of Oz Collection.

Supply List
I wanted to add some texture and interest to the layout so I cut 12 X 1 inch strips of the Wizard Of Oz Poppies Paper and used a pair of fringe scissors to add fringe to the strips and adhered them to a 12X12 piece of white card stock starting at the bottom and working upwards.  I had a bare space on the top so I added border strips to the top.

Next I added some gold stickers to the layout that are included in the Wizard Of Oz Watercolors Paper Crafting Kit.

Finally, I added card stock stickers to the layout and gave the Wizard Of Oz characters some dimension by popping them up with some foam squares and adhering them to the fringe background.

There you have it.  A fringe layout.  I hope you are inspired to try this technique with the gorgeous Wizard Of Oz Collection and check out all the beautiful products at Paper House Productions.  
Have a lovely day!

17 Years

Hello friends! I hope you are having a good weekend so far.  Summer is over and the kids are back to school.  Now it's time for more scrapbooking don't you think?  Today at A Flair For Buttons, I am sharing this layout of my husband and I.  We celebrated our seventeenth wedding anniversary last week.


I really loving the fringe trend lately and was inspired to create a layout using my fringe scissors that have been sitting in my studio for a few years collecting dust.

I cut out the white cardstock background with my Silhouette Cameo.  The cut file is by Just Nick Digital Cut Files called Heart Explosion Background.   For some of the papers, stickers and embellishments, I used some Bella Blvd. Illustrated Faith She Blooms Collection as well as other Bella Blvd. embellishments.  I backed the cut file background with the aqua heart patterned paper.

As you probably notice on most of my layouts, I embellish with flair buttons because they are my favorite embellishment and so so fun to design with.  The flair buttons are from the Happy Flair Collection at A Flair For Buttons.

Happy Flair


 Most of my layouts I like to add some machine stitching or hand stitching to add some texture and give it more of a homespun feel.






I hope you have an awesome weekend doing something you love! Thanks to all my blog followers for sharing your day with me.  Have a great day!
