My Creative Scrapbook | So Thankful | September Tutorial




Hi My Creative Scrapbook Fans!  Today I have a quick and easy tutorial to share with you...how to create these 3-D stars!

Whenever I can, I love to create my own embellishments and stars are one of my favorites!  Here's a look at my layout I created using the 3-D stars.


I used my Big Shot and a 5 point star die cut to create several stars for my page...you can also use a star template or draw your own.     


Next, using a scoring board and scoring tool....I line up the inner section of the star with a scoring line and score each one to the center. 


I then flip the star over and score down the middle of the star points, as shown in the photo below.


Next, crease and fold all of the scored lines...continue creasing and folding all the way around the star. The tops will be high and inner dips of the star will be creased in the opposite direction...as shown in the photos below.      



Now you can start adding your 3-D stars to your projects!

Here's a couple of close-ups...

   

I hope I inspired you today to create your own embellishments!

Here's my take on the sketch!


I visited my mom and dad in July and took this photo of my mom...how amazing is this view from the veranda of my parents home in Grenada! 

My layout was created using My Creative Scrapbook September Main Kit!  This kit is such a gorgeous kit featuring the Jen Hadfield...Heart Of Home collection and perfect for this page.

 

 I created a small cluster on the bottom left hand corner of my photo which included a few pieces from the ephemera pack and an accent sticker.


I decided to fussy cut a couple of flowers from the Gatherings pattern paper to add to the top right hand corner, along with the cute bird cage sticker.
    

To the bottom of the layout, I added two strips of pattern paper with some machine stitching on top.  Next, I created my title using Amy Tangerine Goodness Thickers, also included in this month's main kit and added another accent sticker next to the title. 

I finished the layout off with some journaling strips, a few clear droplets, stamping and some paint splatters!

My Creative Scrapbook-September Main Kit | Buddies




Hi My Scrapping Friends!

Today I'm back to share another layout using the September Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook
This month's main kit is absolutely beautiful and great for documenting those special moments. 



I started with a 12x12 white cardstock and created an outer frame using some patterned paper and adhered with some machine stitching.  

Next, to add a bit more interest to the center of my page, I layer two pieces of pattern papers one on top the other. The base is cut to 9x9ins and the top is cut 1/4ins smaller. 


This page came together very quickly, I added a couple of accent stickers to the bottom corner of the left photo, and used a ephemera piece along with a house sticker to place in the middle of my photos. 


I used my Cameo and a cut file to create my title. 


I finished the layout off with a few enamel dots, a word sticker under both photos and some zig zag machine stitching under the title!

Thanks for stopping by :) xx

Forever In Our Hearts | My Creative Scrapbook-September Main Kit




Hi My Scrapping Friends!

Today I'm sharing my first layout using the gorgeous September Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook


For this layout I decided to use an older photo of my husband parents, enjoying a day of antiquing! They both pass away about ten years ago and will forever be in our hearts! 


I started by selection the beautiful wreath image from the September exclusive cut files and cut it from some white cardstock.   


  I selected the patterned papers I wanted to used for my page and started building my layers. Next, I     added some machine and faux stitching around the edges.


I tucked a portion of the cut file underneath the pattern paper and then started adding my embellishments.





I hope I inspired you today to create something beautiful using the cut files from My Creative Scrapbook!

Thanks for stopping by:) xx

My Creative Scrapbook | Happy Adventure | August Tutorial




Hi My Creative Scrapbook Fans! Today it's my turn to show you what I create using the Heidi Swapp stencil included in this month's main kit. 

Stencils give you the ability to work with many mediums and also it's a great way to customize your work, making it your own.


I started by placing the stencil on a diagonal and attach it onto a 12x12 white cardstock using washi tape.  

Next, I selected two Hero Arts Shadow inks keeping fairly close to the colors in the patterned paper and apply using a sponge dauber.      


I flip the stencil over and added my second color which created a beautiful basket weaving design. At this point you can choose to add another stencil such as a flourish, stars or maybe another background design, the possibilities are endless! 

         
I then cut the stencil design into a 9 1/2 x 7 ins. rectangle.    


Next, I used the reverse side of the awesome A View Of The World patterned paper as the background for my layout and added a strip of the Let's Pack And Go paper down the left side of the layout, with my stencil design on top.  I also added machine stitching to create a circle and did  some faux stitching around the perimeter of both the strip and stencil paper.


Next, I started by placing one of Becky Higgins die-cut frame behind the photo and used another to frame my picture. I created a cluster on the bottom right hand corner of the photo using a few stickers and chipboards from the kit. 
  


I combined one of the clipboard word from Creative Embellishments with the happy stickers from the Photoplay paper-Boarding Pass collection to create my title and tucked another sticker underneath the pattern paper next to the title. 

At the bottom of my layout I added one of the border strip sticker and back it with a thin strip of pattern paper.


Next, I layered a couple of Becky Higgins die-cut frames with a few stickers to the top left hand corner of my photo and love the added dimension this creates.

I finished the layout off with some ink splatter, enamel dots and my journaling.

Thanks for stopping by :) xx Yvette

I hope I inspired you today to create something beautiful using your stencils!

Road Trip Adventure | My Creative Scrapbook-August Main Kit





Hi My Scrapping Friends!


Today I'm back with another DT layout for My Creative Scrapbook using the August Main Kit and this month's cut file!  


Here's this month's exclusive cut file... 


  I started by selecting the geotag image with the circle, enlarge it and cut it out three times from pattern paper.  I wanted to create a backing, I did this by using the offset in my Cameo and cut it from solid color cardstock.  I then added machine stitching around the perimeter and sandwiched my photos in between each geotag and adhere to my base.


I also decide to create a title using some of the words from the cut file and loved how this filled in the empty space on the bottom left side of my page.


Next, using a few chipboards and stickers, I created a small cluster to the top right of my layout and completed it by adding my journating.

Lastly I added a few stars stickers and a couple of enamel dots around the layout.

I hope I inspired you today to create something beautiful using the cut files from My Creative Scrapbook !
