Christmas Card - UmWowStudio

I'm up on the UmWowStudio blog today with this Christmas card featuring a chipboard piece and a stencil from the UmWowStudio store.

To create this card, I started by applying some super heavy gesso through the checker board stencil.  Next I applied some shimmery red and gold mists followed by some little gold beads.

While my card front was drying, I covered a piece of the grid border chipboard with gesso, then adhered it to the card front on top of some messy metallic gold thread.  The grid border is quite possibly my favorite UmWowStudio piece!

A couple of pretty flowers and a sentiment completed the card.

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Believe - My Creative Scrapbook

Hey blog friends!  I'm so glad you stopped by today.  I'm up with my last layout of the year for My Creative Scrapbook kit club.  It's been another amazing year on the team!

It's pretty hard for me to believe how much time has gone by since I first started receiving Pam's kits to design with... it's been 4 years!  I still remember that first kit as part of the team like it was yesterday.  I was so excited (and nervous)!  My style has changed, changed again, and changed yet again since I started.  But what hasn't changed at all is the excitement that I feel each month when that fabulous box of My Creative Scrapbook kits arrives :)

I'm really looking forward to seeing what Pam has up her sleeve for 2016.  But for now, here's my last page made with the December Main kit:

I really love the pinks and golds in this kit.  I decided to add some pink and gold mists to the background to bring out those colors even more.  I also added some gold metallic thread here and there.

Don't forget to visit to see all of the details about the kits.  While you're there, check out the design team gallery!

So Many Presents - My Creative Scrapbook

I'm back with my third layout for My Creative Scrapbook using the gorgeous December Main Kit.  The color combo is so pretty!  There's lots of trendy gold, too :)

The kit includes a few different sheets of foiled vellum... so pretty!  I added some of the polka dot sheet into my layers here.

I added some messy gold metallic thread under the flair piece here for extra interest.

These gold numbers are so pretty in person, but hard for me to photograph... anyway, I still love 'em :)  I'll be back tomorrow with one more layout.

Merry Christmas - My Creative Scrapbook

Hey friends! It's reveal time at My Creative Scrapbook.  The kits this month are quite possibly the best set of Christmas kits that Pam has put together yet.  I worked with the Main Kit this month which is filled with lots of beautiful My Mind's Eye products as well as papers from Photo Play Paper and embellishments from Carta Bella.

Here's one the pages that I made with the kit.  It's a very simple, quick page with only a few drops of mists :)

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!

Here's the My Creative Scrapbook November Limited Edition kit:

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! :)
