Our Happy Place - UmWowStudio

Hi blog friends! Today I have my newest layout featuring chipboard, flair and a stencil from UmWowStudio.

I tucked two flair pieces from the Oh the Places You'll Go set and a gold embossed circle arrow chipboard piece from the Arrow Title Mash set into my embellishment clusters.

I used the checker board stencil with some modeling paste to add fun interest to the background.

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Love, Love, Love - My Creative Scrapbook

Thank goodness it's Friday!!! Whew, what a week at work.  Actually, the past few weeks have been pretty nutty.  Way too many kiddos at my schools have been in need of crisis intervention.  Yet somehow, Friday the 13th came and went today without much to speak of.  It was actually a pretty productive day for me, which, unfortunately, is quite rare.

I have one last layout to share today that I made using the November Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook.  This one is my favorite.  I pulled the purples and pinks from the kit to coordinate with my photo.  That gorgeous background paper is from the Royal Menagerie collection by Prima Marketing.  All I did to it was use a pencil to draw some random circles, smoosh on some purple and blue Lindy's Stamp Gang spray (from my stash), flick some drops of fuschia LSG spray, and run a palette knife with super heavy gesso over the awesome Prima stencil found in the kit.  Then I created a paper pile using additional Royal Menagerie papers, Finnabair ephemera, etc.

Ahhh there are so many stunning Prima flowers in this kit, and in the perfect colors!

I love the gold alphabet stickers, which I used to spell out the word LOVE in three places on my page.

I'm lovin' that bright white contrast/texture that the super heavy gesso adds to the page.  What an awesome stencil!

Make Each Day Count - My Creative Scrapbook

Hey everyone! I'm back with my third layout made with the super pretty Limited Edition kit for November from My Creative Scrapbook kit club.  This layout came together really easily! I pulled the greenish piece of patterned paper from Prima's Royal Menagerie collection and added more green to it by smooshing on some green Lindy's Stamp Gang spray.  When dry, I flicked some more Lindy's spray in blue.  Next, I layered a handful of pieces from the Finnabair ephemera pack on top of the large doily.  I flicked some drops of Lindy's spray in white here and there on the page.  Just a couple of Prima flowers and two stickers completed this simple layout.  All of the products, with the exception of the Lindy's sprays, came in the kit!

Here's the beeeeeeeaaaautiful November Limited Edition kit!

If you've been thinking of joining a kit club, now's a really great time to take a closer look at My Creative Scrapbook.  I just got my hands on the December kits, and let's just say... WOW.  I mean, WOW!!! You are not going to want to miss out... they're completely gorgeous.

You are My Sun... My Creative Scrapbook

Hey friends! I have another layout to share today that I made using the November Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook.  The kit has a lovely combination of products from Prima Marketing, Blue Fern Studios, and We R Memory Keepers.

The background paper is from the Prima Royal Menagerie collection.  I added a bit of yellow to it with some Lindy's Stamp Gang spray that I had in my stash.  Then I applied some super heavy gesso through the Prima stencil that came in the kit. I finished the background by flicking on a tiny bit of my blue Lindy's spray.

I fussy cut the butterflies and tags from the We R Memory Keepers Wildflower collection papers.  I popped up the butterfly wings with some foam squares.

There are lots of gorgeous Prima flowers in this kit!  I clustered a variety of them around my photo.

I cut the We R Memory Keepers Wildflower collection "You are my sun my moon and all my stars" sticker into three pieces and adhered them to the page.

Thank you so much for stopping by! :)

Three Girls - My Creative Scrapbook

Hi friends! Today I'm sharing a layout for My Creative Scrapbook kit club made with the November 2015 Limited Edition kit.  The background paper is a beautiful piece from the Prima Royal Menagerie collection.  I used a paint brush with some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays to splash some pink, orange, and blue in the area where I would later adhere my photo.  I thought the colorful sprays did a nice job of pulling together the colors in the photo and the colors in the kit products.

The layers under my photo are mostly pieces from the Finnabair ephemera pack.  There are tons of beautiful pieces in that pack to choose from.  After adding three gorgeous Prima flowers to represent the three girls, stickers, and journaling, I flicked some black spray ink around the page for contrast.

Here's the kit that I used:

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I will be sharing more kit work throughout the week.  Have a good one!
