Club Scrap Succulent Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the Club Scrap Succulent Blog Hop. You should have came here from Lisa's blog and didn't she do a fantastic job this month with the kit?

Today I made a Jacob's Ladder mini album and box using the tutorial from Club Scrap. Tricia makes it so fun to do with her easy to follow video seen here!

In my spare time (lol) I made a digital layout using the Club Scrap Digital Succulent Kit.

Here is all you get in the digital kit! See the flower paper in the upper left hand corner, that is what I used for my background paper. In photoshop I started with a 500x500 pixel blank sheet and then pasted a square section of the flower section onto my sheet. Because the digital kits pixels are higher normally I would reduce the size, but I liked the way it looked so I just left it at that, and shrunk all my other images.

Next is the Jacob's Ladder and box. The lid I wrapped in ribbon and added a flower and used some faux bead to make the leaves. On the other side which does not show up to clearly on this photo I added a white feather.  The flower on the Jacob's ladder has some added charms.

All the sections of the ladder are represented in these pictures. A lot of the sections have pull out tabs (which I pulled out) that so that both sides can hold a photo or two, a cutout or journaling

I intent to add photo's of my grandmother who loved flowers, so on the bottom card I stenciled her initials on the card using the Club Scrap Uppercase Stencils, which are totally awesome!  I can see me using these in the future all the time! They also sell Lowercase Stencils here!

That's it for me today folks, be sure to stop by and see what Kelly at Serendipity & Whimsy has in store!

Club Scrap Color Me Happy Lite kit

Hello everyone,
Today I would like to share a layout I made using the Club Scrap Color Me Happy Lite kit! I had the photo of my granddaughter forever and I am finally scrapping it. The blue bubbly paper from the kit inspired this layout. 
The background paper I used gelatos on white cardstock to give it a little color. All the shapes and letters were cut out from the Silhouette. For the bubble blower I used the Club Scrap Office Space Lite Metallic Jade Pen to make the lines.

Aren't the Color Me Happy Lite Enamel Dot Stickers an awesome embellishment?

Here is a picture of the kit.

Thank for stopping by today.

Club Scrap Team Challenge

Hello everyone!
I hope you came from the Club Scrap blog and enjoyed what Karen did!
today I would like to share a layout I did using the Club Scrap Color Me Happy Kit for the team challenge this month which was to to create a project that features batik or faux batik techniques. I had never tried this before so it was really was a challenge for me! There are a number of tutorials available, but I used our own team member, Roni's tutorial here to get me started.

First here is the kit from Club Scrap - yummy!

And here is my layout of my adorable granddaughter! "The Choose to Shine" cutout at the bottom has pop tabs underneath to give some depth. I also sprayed the plain green paper with Tim Holtz Distress Spray.

So instead of ink I used Gelato's, and I used Thick Embossing Powder which made the outline of the Dragonfly thicker. I used 3 colors Gelatos, and using them like a crayon I randomly colored over the embossed dragonfly. I spritzed water over the paper and using my finger blended the colors together.
Since did this on white paper, I cut out the dragonfly because I wanted my layout to have the green background.


The key and the feather below I used the Club Scrap Color Me Happy Silver Paint Pen. I was amazed at how fast and what great coverage it gave me in a matter of seconds! The picture of the key is showing half done just for comparison of the gold and silver. Sorry about the picture, it was late at night. I also used the pen for the journaling.

Here is the feather which was also gold. Looks like I have to touch up the right side a little, I must had put my finger on it when it was still drying. I didn't realize that until just now!

Thanks for stopping by, your next stop is the talented Lisa!

Club Scrap Color Me Happy Blog Hop

Welcome to the Color ME Happy Blog Hop. You should have come here from Lisa's blog!
Today I would like to share a layout I did with the Color me Happy Lite Kit. This kit is
 A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! So bright and colorful, sure brightens up the day.
Here is the double page layout I did using the kit. The blue flowery paper is  from the Color Me Happy 12x12 Prints

As you can see I cut some of the flowers out to embellish the paper.


To make the background paper, I took the three cut-outs to try to match with the different sprays I had on hand. I didn't have any green so I made my own by just mixing paint and water .


Then I just randomly sprayed them on a white sheet of paper and taking a paper towel I blotted up the excess and took a hair dryer to finish drying it. Easy peasy!

Your next stop is the very creative Kelly , see what she has done!

Creative Scrappers and Club Scrap Color me Happy!

Today I would like to share a layout using the Club Scrap Color Me Happy Deluxe kit. I was delighted when I received this kit on a cold winters day, it made me so happy. The colors are awesome as always with Club Scrap. This is all the cool items you get in the kit.

Here is the layout I used from Creative Scrappers!

And my layout...
 From the kit I used the silver pen to color the thickers which were a glittery white.  I cut the dragonfly from a journaling card and the flowers from patterned paper.

Close up of a flower I cut from the patterned paper. The Color Me Happy Embellishment Pack Metallic Dot Stickers ( which I wish I had hundreds more of, I loved them so much) were used to embellish the center of the flower as well as around it.

I wanted to share with you a way a way I kept the lines straight when placing the triangles on the page. It was as easy as using washi tape! The washi tape lifts right up without tearing any of the paper.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the new Color Me Happy Deluxe kit from Club Scrap.

Club Scrap Lite kit

Hi everyone! Winter is here in Pennsylvania, and it is cold! brrrrr. Not my favorite time of year, but I sure do love scrapping this snowy layouts, especially with the Club Scrap Shades of Winter Lite Kit. Look at all the yummy papers and embellishments you get with this kit!

This is my grandson enjoying the snow although I think my son is having more fun! I put the pictures diagonally on the layout. Because of that the strips that border the pictures did not fit exactly across so I cheated a little and cut them right where I place the ribbon toward the left hand side. This way I was able to move the strip over  a little so it would fit. Also instead of using two of the Recollecitons  doilies I cut one in half which worked out great. The doily is crocheted so it was a little thick, I didn't want to bulk it under the strips of papers, so again another little cheat.

The Shades of Winter Lite Snowflake Charms from the kit I embellishment with the BEAUTIFUL Shades of Winter Lite Snowflake Sparkles!
Close up of the snowflake sparkles! Aren't they gorgeous!
Thanks for stopping by today and please if you don't already have kit kit, check it out here!
Have a great day!
