1st Day of School Scrapbook Layout

Hello everyone! Stopping in today to share a "1st Day of School" scrapbook layout I created using the super cute "Pre-K Buddies" file from KaDoodle Bug Designs. My son will be starting Pre-K in September and I thought this layout would be perfect to add to his scrapbook.


I started off by uploading the "Pre-K Buddies" file to Cricut Design Space and re-sizing the image. I also made the chalkboard, frame and notebook paper on Cricut Design Space as well. On the notebook paper, I used my Cricut to write some of the information and draw in blank lines so that I will be able to fill in all the information once I add his picture. All pieces were cut using Bazzill Cardstock, inked with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and adhered together using Art Glitter Glue. 

Below is a list of products and supplies used to complete this layout:


Bazzill Card Stock

Patterned Paper: DCWV - The Homeroom Stack

Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany, Fossilized Amber, Faded Jeans, Mowed Lawn, Evergreen Bough, Pine Needles

Art Glitter Glue

Uni-ball Signo Broad White Gel Pen

Scrapper's Delight's August Planner Inspiration Event

Happy Friday crafty friends!! Today Scrapper's Delight's is holding their August Inspiration Event and I have created this weekly planner layout for the occasion.


For this planner layout, I used the A5 My Basic Planner 1 kit along with the Twilight Owl Digi Stamp from Scrapper's Delights. 

I know that I may sound as if I am repeating myself over and over again, but I truly enjoy creating planner spreads using these digital planner kits. They are jam packed with so many elements and options to choose from to customize your planner to your specific needs. 

I kept this layout pretty simple as you can see and did not add too much as I wanted plenty of space to be able to go back and fill in my schedule, appointments, etc. for the week.  I love this sweet digi image of the Twilight Owl. I colored these images using both Copic Markers and Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils. I also wanted to add a bit of a night time effect around my images, so I used my Faber-Castell Soft Pastels to lightly blend in a night time sky.

Below is a list of the products and supplies I have used to create this planner spread:



Copic Markers

Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils

Faber-Castell Soft Pastels

Uni-ball Signo Broad White Gel Pen

I hope that you enjoyed my project for today!! 
Have a Fabulously Crafty Day!!

Mermaid Mini Album Cover

Hello my crafty friends and Happy Friday!! I an stopping in this morning to share my mermaid mini album cover that I have created.  I have been busy making many mini albums lately, and this is my Summer Mermaid themed album. I've been wanting to create an album using mermaids and sea life for awhile now and after seeing the "Twirling Mermaid" file from KaDoodle Bug Designs, I thought it would be perfect to create and add to the front cover of my album...


To begin, I uploaded the "Twirling Mermaid" file to Cricut Design Space, re-sized the image and cut out all of the pieces on my Cricut Explore Air 2.  I then inked each piece using Tim Holtz Distres Inks and adhered them together using Art Glitter Glue. I used a white gel pen to add some highlights as well. Isn't she just the cutest?!?!

I adhered her down to the top right portion of the Reef Border and Frame Fancy Dies that I used from Hero Arts. This is a gorgeous die set and again, perfect for the theme I am trying to create. Of course, I needed to add sparkle (as I usually do in all my projects, LOL!!), so I added Stickles to the die cut to add color, sparkle and texture. I also added a Sticker to the center of the die cut, which is from the Echo Park Paper Co. "Let's Be Mermaids" Collection Kit. To finally finish it off, I added small drops of Glossy Accents to act as Bubbles to add more dimension and texture.

Below is a list of products and supplies used to create the cover of my Summer Mermaid Mini Album:

KaDoodle Bug Designs - Twirling Mermaid  file

Patterned Paper: Echo Park - Let's Be Mermaids Collection Kit

Bazzill Cardstock

Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Antique Linen, Abandoned Coral, Peacock Feathers

Art Glitter Glue

Uni-ball Signo Broad White Gel Pen

Pebbles Pearlescent Chalks - Shimmer Shades

Hero Arts - Reef Border & Frame Fancy Dies

Stickles

Glossy Accents

Scrapper's Delights July New Release Event

Hello everyone and Happy Friday!!! Today is the July Release over at Scrapper's Delights and they are showcasing the new Recipe Card Products. You will be able to create your very own recipe cards, using some fabulous digital stamps and kitchen scene builders now available over at the Scrapper's Delights shop.  For my project, I have started a recipe book in one of my ReCollections A5 planners. This is a fabulous idea to use and create something different and unique to give as a gift for a Wedding gift or shower, or any special occasion.


Instead of using the traditional recipe cards that are available, i decided to use the jar from the Kitchen Scene Builders set. I enlarged it and added my sweet Chef off to the side. I colored my images using Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils. I used patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs Inc. 6x6 gingham-linen rainbow petite prints paper pad to create the top and bottom portion of the covered lid on my jar.  I then typed up my recipe along with a title and adhered them on to the jar. And to finish off my page, I lined the top and bottom with some washi tape for a little added decoration.  Overall, I think it turned out pretty cute. I will have to go back and play with some of the individual recipe cards at a later date. 

I hope that you enjoyed today's project share.
Have a Fabulously Crafty Day!

There's Snow one Like You!

Hello there my crafty friends! Today is July 25th, which means we are five months or 153 days away from Christmas (but who's counting,LOL). Christmas is my absolute favorite Holiday and with it being so close to the end of July, I thought I would jump on the "Christmas in July" bandwagon and create a quick Christmas card for you all.

I added some accents to my finised paper piecing using a white gel pen and of course, I had to add some sparkle (cause who doesn't like sparkle?!?!, LOL). I used Stickles to add sparkle to the cuffs and hat of this little cutie.

I created the base of my card using 110lb. ReCollections White Cardstock and cut two card mats each 1/8" smaller than each other to get my layered look.  I stamped my sentiment, "There's Snow one Like you!" (from the Maymay Made It - Snow Peeking Stamp Set) onto the top right corner of my mat using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. To finish my card off, I added three small red heart rhinestones that I had in my stash.

And there you have it....a super cute card ready to send out as the Holiday Season draws closer.

Scrapper's Delights New June Release

Hello everybody and Happy Friday! Today is Scrapper's Delights New June Release and I am stopping in to share what I have created using their new A5 My Fitness Planner.

I started off by creating a monthly divider and adding the Fitness Honey - Stretch Digital Stamp along with the Gym Time! sentiment.


I wanted to keep these pages rather simple, so I left a lot of white space and added some washi tape from my stash along the top and bottom of the page to add a little something. I colored the "Fitness Honey" using Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils.


For my weekly spread, again, I kept it simple and added washi tape to the top and bottom of these pages. I used the "Boxed Weekly Plan" from the Fitness Planner Kit to create my weekly spread. All of Scrapper's Delights planner kits are amazing in that they allow you to create exactly what you want as a planner. I chose this layout because I like that the bottom boxes are broken down each day by Breakfast, Snack, Lunch, Snack and Dinner (B,S,L,S,D). It makes it so much easier to record what you consume and also helps in daily meal planning. 

The top boxes are large enough that I was able to break down the week using different icon stickers to help me determine and remind me of the different activities that need to be performed. For instance, the scale on Monday, reminds me that I need to weigh in. The sneakers make me realize that I need to get my walking in for that day. And the heart shows the days that I need to fit in a cardio workout. And don't forget that water intake!! LOL! I added water droplets to each day so that I can record my water intake and make sure to stay on track.

The Printable Fitness Planner comes with several options for you to create a Front/Back Cover, Belongs to Page, Yearly Overview, Month Dividers, Yearly Measurements, Monthly Weigh In page, Weekly Hydration Page, Step Tracker, Calories Tracker, Goals and Progress Page, Monthly Tabs, Monthly Planner, Weekly Planner, Exclusive Digi Stamp Set and Stickers. 

Thank you for stopping by to check out my Fitness Planner spread. Have a Fabulously Crafty Day!!!

Aloha My Friend...

Good evening crafty friends!!! Stopping in this evening to share a sweet summer card I created using the "Aloha Pineapple" file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.


I have been wanting to play with this file for a while now and finally got some free time to do so. KaDoodle Bug Designs has so many new summer themed files available and I am so excited to begin all of my summer themed projects.

For this card, I started off with uploading the svg file to my Cricut Design Space, re-sized my image and cut out all of my pieces. I then inked each piece using Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I used Art Glitter Glue to adhere them together and then added some highlights using a white gel pen. To finish off my happy little pineapple, I added some stickles (cause who doesn't like a bit of glitter here and there?!?!), to areas of the leaves, the center of the flower and on some of the skirt leaves. I also added glossy accents to the sunglasses (although it is difficult to capture in this pic, sorry!!)

As I set the pineapple off to the side to dry for a bit, I began to work on my card base. I cut the base of my card to measure 4.25 x 5.5 out of 110lb. Neenah Solar White Cardstock. I then used a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock and ink-blended my Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks using my blending tool. These inks are absolutely amazing and beautiful to work with. Once the panel was dry, I ran it through my Big Shot using my Fancy Frames die from Craftin Desert Divas.  I set my panel in my Misti and using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, inked up my stamp sentiment "Aloha my friend" from the Jaded Blossom "Be a Pineapple Stamp Set". I adhered the panel onto my card base, adhered my pineapple paper piecing and to finish it off, added three small drops of Nuvo Crystal Drops.  

I absolutely love how this card turned out and can't wait to send it off to a special friend. 
Below is a list of products and supplies used to create this card:


Bazzill Cardstock

Neenah 110lb Solar White Cardstock

Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock

Tim Holtz Distress Inks: Tea Dye, Worn Lipstick, Scattered Straw, Broken China, Twisted Citron, Pine Needles

Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks: Fossilized Amber, Broken China, Spiced Marmalade

It's a MOO-velous Week!

Hello there everybody! Stopping by today to share a planner spread I created in my mini Happy Planner. Last week was very busy with all the end of year events and happenings taking place at my children's schools and it was my daughter's 13th birthday as well.  She LOVES and has a fascination with cows, so I decided to decorate my weekly spread in honor of her for her birthday.


Craftin Desert Divas has the perfect digital cow images for this very occasion too. I used the "Birthday Cow" digital stamp as well as the "Over the Moon" digital stamp for my layout. I colored my images using Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils. I also used the "Plan It Out" stamp set along with the "Sweater Weather" stamp set to create my daily bullets and important reminders/errands that I needed to attend to. 

Below is a list of the supplies and products used to create this spread:





ReCollections Washi Tape
