You Two (The Scrappery CT)

Hello!  Today I'm back with a layout I made with my Belle Kit a couple of weeks ago for The Scrappery YouTube Channel.  This kit features the entire Cocoa Vanilla Studio "Wild at Heart" collection (if you get all three kits).  I decided to use the patterned paper with painterly features on it as my background, and lots of frames.  Frames are an embellishment that I want to use but struggle with.  I used some older photos of Brielle and her lovely friend Dexter.

So happy that I could use up all these frames!!

Layering chipboard embellishments on chipboard frames!

And here is my video.

Thanks for looking!

Oh Boy (The Cut Shoppe DT)

Hi there!  Today I'm back with a layout I shared on The Cut Shoppe Blog earlier this month.  Its a really old photo of Sam as a baby, and I've had it printed for many years, but haven't scrapped it until now.  I used Cocoa Vanilla Studio's "Oh Happy Day" collection, and the Social Butterfly Background Cut file.  Its a really old photo, and not the best quality, but I love what I created!

Thanks for looking!

Happy Unicorn (The Scrappery)

Good morning! I'm back today to share a layout I made a couple of weeks ago for The Scrappery Kit Club.  I used my Belle Kit featuring the entire Cocoa Vanilla Studio "Wild at Heart" collection and an adorable photo of Ava in her unicorn onesie.  Of course I had to use the Unicorn Xing cut file set from The Cut Shoppe.  

I enlarged my title and made it a feature of my page.  The gorgeous floral patterned paper is my favourite from the collection.

Gun layering with a doily, ephemera and a flair badge.  The gold acrylic paint is by American Crafts and came in the colour kit.

And here is my process video.

Thanks for looking.

Cupcake Mini Album (The Scrappery)

Hello again!  Today I'm back to share with you a project I made with my Belle kit from The Scrappery Kit Club.  This kit features the Wild at Heart collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio, and if you purchase all of the kits you get the entire collection!!

My friend's daughter turned 5 in March, and we had a party for her with cupcakes at our local park.  I took some photos and decided this kit was perfect for a mini album to record her birthday.  I made my own cupcake cut file to make the album, and in my first video you can see this process and the making of my cover.

Here is the first video:

My second video focussed on making the album pages and embellishing them.   Here are some photos.

The page on the right is made on the speciality vellum in the kit.

And here is a photo of the finished mini album.

Here is my second video.

My friend and her daughter loved the album, and I really enjoyed making it!!

Thanks for looking!

Oh Ava (The Cut Shoppe)

Hello!  Yesterday I was up on The Cut Shoppe Blog with a new layout featuring Ava and my March Hip Kit.  I decided to go for a big title, and I used the All Caps Alpha backed with patterned paper from Paige Evans' "Oh My Heart" collection, the paper with all the squares.

I outlined each of the letters with watercolours in the corresponding colours.  Head on over to the blog for more details and some close up shots.

Thanks for looking!

Jade Kit Projects (The Scrappery)

Hi Friends, I know, its been a while again.  I'm not going to lie, life with 4 kids and a business is hard,  and sometimes creating has to take a back seat for a while.  In an attempt to get my blog back to being up to date, I need to post several times with lots of layouts, starting with my projects for The Scrappery Kit Club that I made with the Jade Kit.

The Jade kit was a mix of products from Kaisercraft, Cocoa Vanilla Studio and Simple Stories.  My first project was a layout with a background of acrylic paint by Brielle.  I used a free cut file from Paper Issues.  

A second layout featured a cut file by The Cut Shoppe and a older photo of Shaun and Brielle that I've struggled to scrap for years!

Next up was a mini album of my favourite summer SnapChat photos.  

For this next layout I used the exclusive stencil and used texture paste mixed with the pink acrylic paint from the colour kit.

The kit came with a speciality die cut paper, and I layered it over a Simple Stories colour blocked paper for a quick and easy page.

I even made some cards.

And finally I made my first ever Traveler's Notebook, and I love working in this smaller canvas.  This notebook will document all my photos of Brielle that I take of her sleeping.

If you read this far then I thank you from the bottom of my heart, as this was a large photo heavy post!  You can find process videos for all of these on my YouTube Channel here.

Together (The Cut Shoppe)

Hello!  I'm back today with a layout I made for The Cut Shoppe to be shared on my blog.  I used the Be Mine cut file set, and choose to use one of the cut files and cut it several times.  I used my February Hip Kit (which I just killed in the weekend), and I painted the "love" cut files ombre with my water colours.

The photo is of Brielle and our cat Charlie.  Brielle loves Charlie (and our other cat Lola), but can be very rough with him.  I just love this sweet photo of them!

Here is the cut file set:
