More Bella Blvd Sand & Surf: My Creative Scrapbook August Creative Kit

Hope you had a great weekend! I have one more Bella Blvd Sand & Surf layout to share made with the Creative kit this month from My Creative Scrapbook.


This layout came together quite quickly. I just layered on several various sized rectangles of patterned paper, a few stickers and flowers, a piece of washi tape, and called it done. Clean and simple.



 Here's the Creative kit:


and... just wait until you see next month's kits! Oh MY! :)

More My Creative Scrapbook Creative Kit: Bella Blvd Sand & Surf + Sketch Challenge

I have another Bella Blvd Sand & Surf layout to share today created with the My Creative Scrapbook August Creative kit and inspired by the August sketch.
 

My little girl has a tough time tolerating the bright summer sunlight here in Las Vegas. I have scrapped about this subject previously, but since it really is a part of our daily lives, I think it may be a recurring theme on my summer projects. I feel really bad for her. I don't particularly like the bright sun in my eyes either, but for her, the reaction she has to it makes it seem as though she has a pretty intense hypersensitivity to it. So, it is often difficult to get her to look at the camera when we're outside. These photos are a really good representation of how it usually goes.


That said, I think these adorable, bright, sunshine-filled Bella Blvd goodies featured in the Creative kit were perfect for these photos!


I just made a quick little change to one of the stickers by crossing out the word "never" to make the sentiment read, "one can have too much of one thing".


This layout is based on the August sketch that went live today on the My Creative Sketches blog. I hope you'll consider playing along- your entry could be chosen as a featured layout, or you could be the randomly selected prize package winner. So give it a go! :)

Here's the sketch, and you have until the middle of September to submit your entry:


Be sure to take a peek at the awesome prize package over on the My Creative Sketches blog.

My Creative Scrapbook August Creative Kit: Bella Blvd Sand & Surf

Hi Friends! This month's Creative kit from My Creative Scrapbook kit club is featuring the Sand & Surf collection from Bella Blvd. It's such a bright and fun kit perfect for summer and swimming-themed projects.


These are two of my nieces enjoying a day in the pool.

The kit includes lots of fun stickers and trims as well as pretty flowers and a roll of washi tape.


To tone down the brightness of the circle patterned paper, I applied a thin layer of gesso onto the center portion of it. This helps the photos not get lost in the pattern of the paper.


My Creative Scrapbook offers several different kits each month. If your style tends to be on the clean side and you are drawn to bright, happy, and fun colors, patterns, and themes, then the Creative kit may be calling your name!

More Kaisercraft On This Day: My Creative Scrapbook Limited Edition Kit

Here is another layout that I created with the August Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook featuring On This Day by Kaisercraft.


Some of the prettiest Primas and trinkets are included in this kit, and I do love tying bows with the beautiful ribbons!


On the background paper I did just a bit of mist splattering and then used distress ink and molding paste with a couple of masks to add some subtle interest to the layout.


My Creative Scrapbook offers several different kits each month, so there is something for every style. While I love them all, the Limited Edition kit is my favorite.  It's always completely gorgeous and jam-packed with products. I can't wait for you to see the kit that's coming next month.

More My Creative Scrapbook August Main Kit: Echo Park Beautiful Life

Hello and happy Friday! :)

This is my third layout created with the Main kit this month at My Creative Scrapbook which features the Beautiful Life collection by Echo Park Paper Co.


I used lots of paper layers here but this time they're concentrated in the center of the page, leaving lots of white space, which is something pretty new for me. It's difficult to see in the photo but there's a bit of masking peeking out in the background using a Prima stencil with molding paste.


The chipboard fence pieces are the trimmings of the fence that were left over from my previous layout. I really love being able to stretch supplies into multiple projects.


Here is the August Main kit:

More Echo Park Beautiful Life: My Creative Scrapbook August Main Kit

Hello! I have another My Creative Scrapbook August Main kit layout to share today.

I love the variety of colors in the Echo Park Beautiful Life collection.  For this layout I pulled the pinks and reds along with some neutral kraft.


By the way, this is my six-year-old niece. Isn't she a doll? :)
 

As is often the case, I couldn't resist tying some bows- such a simple way to pretty up a project.


In addition to all of the flowers, stickers, trims, and artisan pieces, the kit includes an awesome raw chipboard fence. I painted the fence with a couple coats of white paint, tucked a length of the lace underneath, and used it to ground my layout. Oh, and I trimmed away the excess length of the fence to use on another layout.


As you can see, the kit is filled with lots of beautiful goodies! If you'd like to purchase this or any of the other My Creative Scrapbook kits, please visit the website, here.

My Creative Scrapbook August Main Kit: Echo Park Beautiful Life

This is one of the layouts that I made with the My Creative Scrapbook August Main kit featuring Echo Park Beautiful Life.


There are lots of pretty colors in this kit. For this layout, I chose the blues and the greens along with pops of pale yellow.


I did a bit of masking on the background paper with a few different masks and distress inks from my stash before layering on the kit goodies. I really love the added interest this brings to the project, once again inspired by the work of Christin Gr√łnnslett.

There are always beautiful ribbons and trims included in the kits, and I do love to embellish my layouts with pretty bows!


Here's the kit, filled with so many beautiful goodies:

My Creative Scrapbook August Album Kit: Webster's Pages Sweet Notes

Hello! The August kits at My Creative Scrapbook kit club have been revealed, so now I can finally share what I've been up to in my scrap room for the past few weeks!

The Album kit this month features the bright and classy Sweet Notes collection by Allison Kreft for Webster's Pages.

The kit is just loaded with goodies including several beautiful patterned papers, a transparency sheet, and cardstock stickers plus tons of awesome embellishments... flowers, wood pieces, a bird paper clip, several gorgeous ribbons and trims, raw chipboard shapes and a whole pack of raw chipboard letters, a roll of washi tape, canvas heart stickers, lots of buttons, mini envelopes, and more... there's even an awesome Prima stencil! Pam really packed tons of product into this kit.

And, what fun it was to use the kit to create this mini album of my gorgeous nieces!



"Own the Runway" was the theme of the girls' dance season, so it was an easy choice for the album's title.






 
I LOVE how colorful this album is. Since all of the photos of the girls consist of black and white attire and have black backgrounds, I knew this kit would be the perfect complement. The colorful patterns were so fun to layer! and the transparency sheet... wow, that was just wonderful for cutting into pieces and tucking in here and there throughout the album to bring the whole thing together.


Later this month I plan to have a little tutorial prepared to show how I altered the raw chipboard birdcage shown above and some of the other raw chipboard pieces that can be found throughout the album.






I'm excited to send this album off to my sister... I hope she likes it! Here's the kit:
