The Good Life – Seed Packet Mini Album

March 22, 2021

Hello Friends and welcome! It is Karan here to share a project I designed using the new Sidekick Release. For those who know how much I love albums, I also love to create mini albums too. 

This one is designed using the Seed Packet Die from Sidekick Essentials 16. 

To begin with I cut the seed pack out five times using paper from 49 and Market. I cut vellum to go on the inside of the packet for the window. I cut out extras thinking I might make the album larger but ended up going with 5 packets instead of 8.

Then I assembled them.

I then cut the side panel from the same sidekick set and created the pages and continued to decorate them. I love tags and cut out a tag for each page just as an added layer and photo mat for some of my photos. This tag was cut from Planner Essentials 2, which I also cut to go inside each opening of the Seed Packet page. I am going to share images from this little mini and then add the dies I used below. Hope you enjoy this mini project.

And then details for the cover:

I cut doubles for the large floral and the medium size floral for the cover, two sets of leaves and then I used the skeleton leaf from the Sidekick Essential 16 set. Ii love how the florals shape so beautifully.

I hope that I inspired you to create a mini album using this Seed Pocket Set. It makes a perfect little mini album. 

Until Next time

Happy Scrapping!

My Virtual Travel to Illinois

March 5, 2021

Karen here. I’m still doing some virtual travel through my “Places I’ve Been” planner/journal. It’s been a kick to look back through old pictures and to create pages. Today’s creation is all about a trip to Chicago back in 2007. One of the highlights of the trip was a Cubs game at historic Wrigley Field, so I chose a color palette of blue and red.

I’ve been creating two-page layouts (front and back) for each place I document. The paper I used in this lay-out is from Reminiscence, The Book. Gorgeous papers in blue and red!

The page base I used in the lay-out is from Planner Essentials 28. I love the beautiful deckled edge on this particular base. The letters are from the Butterfly Pocket Insert dies.

On the backside, there was some words on the paper that I didn’t really want in my page, so I added the polkadot paper that I die cut with the Fitted Circles dies and then ran back through with the page base.

And I LoVe playing with reinforcements. I always add 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to the back of the paper before die cutting. The beige banners are cut from a die in the Reinforcement Variety Pack 1, and the stars are part of Planner Essentials 14.

Thank you for stopping by today. I have linked up the supplies below.

Craftily yours, Karen

Winter Bliss Scrapbook Page

January 16, 2021

Whether you love snow or not, you can’t but love its magical properties!  Hi Artlets, it’s Suzanne here today with a scrapbook page layout celebrating winter snow.  We don’t get a lot of snow on Vancouver Island at sea level, so sometimes we go to the mountains looking for it!  This page was an early winter day at Forbidden Plateau and it was so fun!  Now if we had this every day, I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t be so charming, but this day was totally awesome!

Here is how you can assemble this layout and add your own photos.  Let’s get started.

Instructions:

Choose 2 photos for your project.  That’s fun!  Trim them to fit inside the frames.  You can see that I just had the rectangular lake photo loosely placed inside the frame and the people photo was cut to fit perfectly inside the ornament.

Die cut Winter from the 4 Seasons die set, Bliss, Let it Snow, Flourished Frame, the ornament from Love Joy Peace Christmas Ornament, the pine boughs from Create a Wreath all from white Soft Finish Cardstock.

Die cut the snowflakes from Brrrrr and Merry Christmas 4 from masking paper, a post-it or removable labels.

Choose Distress Ink colours that complement the photos.  Since mine were almost black and white because of snow and trees, I went with pretty dark colours and then added hints of other colours to pick up the jacket and toque.

Adhere the snowflakes randomly on the base cardstock and begin blending colours, right over the snowflakes.  You probably don’t want to do this under where the photos will be!  Every once in a while, move the snowflakes and blend over the original masked area and continue blending.  If you can spritz your blending and get little dots to appear they will also make the background interesting.  By moving the snowflake diecuts and blending over the masked area you’ll create the illusion of depth.

Once you’ve blended the colours to your satisfaction, begin adding the diecuts and photos.  Refer to the sample photos for placement.  The Flourished Frame and photo are adhered to the background with 3D Foam Squares and the ornament is adhere with two layers of the foam adhesive.  Everything else is adhered with Glue Dots.

Now you have an awesome memory of a fabulous day!

Happy creating, Suzanne

Places I’ve Been – Delaware

January 8, 2021

Karen here today. I’m still working through my virtual travels in my “Places I’ve Been” journal. Today’s trip is to Delaware. I went with a girlfriend in December 2019. For today’s post, I decided to finally try out the Planner Essentials 22, Planner Pocket 3. It’s a fun die set!

LoVe this. For thee pages, I used mostly paper from Reminiscence, The Book. Some of the embellishments were created from the Mystical Winter Collection and/or from my stash.

To create this page, I cut out the “inner tag” at 4″x7-1/2″ and cut the tag topper and pocket from Planner Essentials 22. I used a transparency for the window. The page base is cut with Planner Essentials 4. A great video on putting together the page can be found here. The letter dies can be found in Planner Essentials 23. I used both the smallest and the medium versions of the letters. To make application easier, I used 101mm Double Sided Adhesive on the paper before cutting it.

The tag is embellished with stamps from Destination Phrases, Water Creatures and Background 1. I used some Stormy Sky and Vintage Photo Distress Oxides (along with black ink). I also added a couple fishes from the Diving Accessories dies and some Artsy Scenery Washi Tape.

The shells and flowers that I used for embellishing the front and back of my Delaware pages are from the Seashells, Flower Power, and Blooming Branches dies. I used small scraps of paper from Mystical Winter, Reminiscence and other scraps in my stash.

The back page also has a few dies from the Planner Labels set. I used White Craft Drops and dies from the Reinforcement Variety Pack 1 and 2.

So much fun creating these pages! Thank you for stopping by.

Craftily yours, Karen

Good morning!
The holiday season is upon us and I am excited!
To share my Christmas spirit I created a Christmas layout of my husband and our oldest boy.

To create this layout:
Step 1 – Cover your paper with clear gesso (allow to dry or heat set) then use your favorite ECD stencil ( I used the dot dot dot stencil)and texture paste on the left hand side of the paper – I used a paper from the worn wood paper pack
Step 2 – using the splatter technique splatter your coordinating colors on the paper over your stenciled image
using your scissors cut three small indents on your paper then distress all your edges
Step 3 – using coordinating colorants color the lace and allow to dry. Using your double sided tape adhere the lace to the indents that you cut earlier.
Step 4 – color a large circular frame and a title with white gesso and allow to dry. Once dry use Snowflake paste on both pieces and allow to dry

Step 5 – die cut 11 poinsettias and 5 of just the smallest, some leaves and 3 large and 3 small pine cones from the Christmas Accents die set. Ink the edges of all pieces and assemble. Once assembled add snowflake paste to each piece and allow to dry.

Step 6 – die cut as many stems & branches from the Create a Wreath as you want, ink the edges, add the pearl rose craft drops to the berry part of the branches and add snowflake paste and allow to dry

Step 7 – Mat your photo and assemble as shown
Step 8 – add some seed beads, gems or art stones
