Hello, CK friends! Donna here back with another project using the June kits "Sweet Tea". I created a scrapbook layout mixing stuff from the main and junior kits. I also used the Color Kit as well.
I used a white cardstock as the background. Then I used the 3 acrylic paints in the Color Kit to draw a circle. in the center. This will be the base of the wreath design I will be doing. After creating the circle, I used a couple of brushes to splatter some more paint diluted with water.
I fussy cut the peaches from the Dear Lizzy paper Peachy Keen and mounted them with foam tape following the circle drawing to create a wreath design. I alternated between the colors of the peaches and then tucked in here in there some fussy cut leaves and flowers from the vellum paper.
I placed my photos in the middle of the wreath design and then tucked in some Prima flowers around. I used some pieces from the ephemera pack as well then I've written a short note about the photo using the American Craft pen from a previous CK kit to complete the layout.
I really love how this turned out! The colors and patterns in this month's kit are super sweet!
That's all for today and I hope to see you again in my next post.
Thanks for dropping by and happy crafting!
Hello, CK friends! Donna here to share my first project using the June "Sweet Tea" kits. I used a mixture of items from the the main and junior kits to create today's project which is a spread in one of my TN inserts dedicated for memory keeping.
I used the acrylic paints in this month's Color kit featuring Bad Girls Couture Haute Mess Paints. The colors are amazing and they coordinate with the June kit so perfectly.
I fussy cut some of the flowers from the vellum paper and the Peachy Keen paper. I used a decorative border punch to add a bit of interesting detail to a couple of papers trimmed from the Seek Magic paper.
I stamped around the edges with using a Vicki Boutin stamp and Catherin Pooler orange ink, both from previous CK kits.
That's all from me today and I hope you liked my TN spread. Don't forget to leave a comment if you have any queries.
Thank you so much for dropping by and see you in my next post!
Hello, CK friends! It's Donna here back on the blog with another project using the May "Great Expectations" Kit featuring Crate Paper All Heart collection.
I used some of my Bad Girls Couture acrylic paints, watered down, to add subtle colors to the white cardstock. The brush I used has a long and thin bristles, enabling me to smear the edges.
After the splatters has dried, I adhered in place the pieces of patterned papers I cut in the middle. I folded the edges a bit for texture. I also used a white doily to break the mixture of colors of the patterned papers.
Then I simply embellished with stickers, glossy puffy stickers and butterfly sequins. The pink alpha thickers is one of my faves in the May kit. I just love how dainty the color is.
That's all from me today. I hope you liked my layout and I hope it inspired you to be creative today.
Thanks for dropping by and happy crafting!
Hello, CK friends! It's Donna here with a new project using the May "Great Expectations" Kit featuring Crate Paper's All Heart collection.
I used Go Girl paper as the background to my TN spread. I kept the embellishments minimal since the paper is already too busy.
I hope you liked my project today! See you in my next post!
Hello, CK friends. It's Donna here today on the blog and I'm gonna be sharing a simple mini-album I created using the March Kit "Wonderful You". I used both the Main and TN kits.
It's without photos at the moment but I am planning to use this for those random, everyday photos that I am not able to use in my single scrapbook layouts.
That's all from me today. I hope you liked my project! See you in my next post.
Hello CK friends! Donna here back with a new project using the April "Full Bloom" kit featuring Vicki Boutin's Kaleidoscope collection.
I made a scrapbook layout with a little bit of mixed media background and lots of fussy cutting.
I splattered a mixture of watercolors and spray mists to create the background. Then adhered 2 pieces of papers horizontally and curled the edges. I used different thickness of foam tape to adhere the fussy cut pieces to vary the height or dimension.
Here is the process video you can watch.
I hope you liked my project today. Thanks for dropping by and happy crafting.
See you all next time!
Hello, CK friends! It's Donna here again back with a new project using the April kit "Full Bloom" featuring Vicki Boutin's Kaleidoscope collection. This time, I used it to create a TN spread.
I used both the Main and TN kits as well as the February Color Kit to create this layout. I started with trimming two 6 x 8 paper to size and adhered to the TN page. I used a corner punch to round the top-bottom outer corners of the 6 x 8 papers. Then I splattered diluted Prima Marketing concentrated watercolors onto the background as well as a Heidi Swapp black spray mist.
To create the top most part of the left page, I cut the strip pattern and folded one edge of each strip. Then I tucked ephemera/die cut pieces under the photo mounted with foam tape. I cut the banners and large flower die cuts in half so I can use them both on the pages.
I love the puffy stickers in the April kit. It's great for creating titles like this one. I also fussy cut some leaves and butterflies from one of the 12 x 12 papers. Love how the mixture of colors complement each other.
That's all from me today. I hope you liked this TN spread as much as I do. Thank you for dropping by and see you all on my next post!
Hello, CK friends! Donna here with a new scrapbook layout using the April kit "Full Bloom" featuring Vicki Boutin's Kaleidoscope collection.
I started with LOOK UP paper as my background. I placed my photo over a doily and adhered to the upper left side of the background with foam tape for dimension.
Then, I fussy cut some flowers from FLOWER SHOP paper. I used foam tapes with different thickness to give the fussy cut flowers different heights. I placed this around the photo. From there, I started embellishing with stickers and ephemera.
Curling the edges of some of the ephemera pieces added interesting texture to the layout. I used both liquid adhesive and foam tape to adhere these pieces.
Following the curve of the banner, I created movement by placing the embellishments in a curve. The fussy cut butterflies were placed with movement in mind as well.
I love how everything is colorful, vibrant and simple at the same time. The mixture of black and white elements complemented the colorful elements very well and created an interesting and balanced overall look.
I hope you liked my project today and hope to see you soon again on my next post. Thanks for dropping by and have a crafty weekend!
Hello again, lovely CK friends! It's Donna here once again and I have another TN spread to share but this time, I used the February kit "Moonlight Sonata".
I used both the TN and Main kits but just embellishments from the latter. Once again, I opted to create a TN spread just like yesterday's project. I love the 6 x 8 papers and I've seen some manufacturers' doing this lately. I think it's perfect for TNs. No need to cut and trim to the right paper size. For my project, instead of trimming down the papers, I decided to leave it as is. Now, I don't have a 6 x 8-sized notebook so this turned out a DIY 6 x 8 mini-album (I have yet to finish the covers though but it's gonna be a simple design).
I started by adhering the floral die cuts with foam tape with different thickness for different height. I slightly curled the edges of the leaves and adhered them with glue. Then I placed my photo with doily and messy thread before continuing to add the rest of the embellishments to this part of the spread.
For the right side of the spread, I embellished the right edge with die cuts adhered with foam tape as well. Then I doodled around the pages using the metallic pen included in the kit. I also added some random dots and hearts to both pages. Then I wrote small note about the photo for the finishing touch.
I really love how this turned out. The Midnight collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio is so beautiful, I love it to bits!
Thank you for dropping by the CK blog today.
I hope this inspired you to be create something too!
Hello, CK friends! It's Donna here today and I'm excited to share my project with you all since it's been quite a while since I last posted.
I arrived from my vacation almost a couple of months ago and had to settle down first aka clean the house etc because there were so many sandstorms while we were on vacation in the Philippines and all of our things were.. yes, covered with dusts and all. Anyways, most of my kits arrived after a few weeks and just got to use them. I have lots of projects to share soon, here on the blog and in IG and FB too, so watch out for them.
Anyways, for today's project, I used the January kit "Heart Eyes" featuring Paige Evan's Whimsical collection. I used both Main and TN kits. The latter has still some available so grab it if you don't have it in your stash yet.
I thought of an idea of documenting a part of my creative journey, all the announcement of the teams I am currently on. I already started with the Pink Paislee DT announcement and created a scrapbook layout about it. But I wanted them to be in one place so I thought of making a TN insert just with all those wonderful news. Here is for the CK 2019 Design Team announcement.
I used the specialty paper as base and backed it with some 6x6 papers. I used dimensional tape to some of the petals for a bit of height. I also fussy cut the teeny tiny patterns in one of the 6x6 papers and adhered to the edges. The sequins accentuated some of the petals/florals for a bit of shimmer.
I had fun creating this spread and I can't wait to start with the rest of the pages. I wonder if I'd add more in the near future... we never know... But as it is, I am thankful and grateful with the current teams I am on. All of them are wonderful companies and I couldn't be more proud and honored to be part of them.
I hope this inspired you to be creative today. Thanks for dropping by and see you next time in my second post!
