Valentine's Day Card Set (The ScrapRoom February 2019 Flavors of the Month Kit)

I know that Valentine's day is over and done with for this year, but I can't help but share some of my latest Vday cards. Especially since it features scraps from the latest Flavors of the Month kit from The ScrapRoom kit club. 

Products used: All the FOTM mini kits combined + Embellishment kit
Stash items used: White A2 Card bases; Red and Pink Cardstock (DCWV); Corner rounder (EK Success)
Notes: When I make cards with the scraps of my FOTM kits, I usually go with the smaller scraps, and these three cards represent that very well. Two of them have small square blocks of the papers added onto a cardstock as a focal point of the card. I just added some chipboard stickers to finish the card off.
The card in the center has three paper scraps combined and then I added a flower stickers and foam element to finish off the card. I also rounded two corners of them for a different look.

Here are some close ups of each of the cards.... 



What's your favorite project to do with scraps?

"Sam's Club Shenanigans" (The ScrapRoom February 2019 Flavors of the Month Kit)

One of my favorite things about scrapbooking is being able to document both the big events as well as the little, everyday moments. This page is one of the later. And I created it with some of my leftovers from this month's Flavor of the Month kit from The ScrapRoom kit club.

Products used: All the FOTM mini kits combined + Embellishment kit
Stash items used: Date stamp (Studio Calico); Ink (Black, My Favorite Things); Vellum (WorldWin Cardstock); Alphabet stickers (Doodlebug Design Inc. and October Afternoon)
Notes:
Since I have a lot of photos on this page, I kept the pattern papers in the center. I used the triangle technique to incorporate more patterns into this one block. And to make the title stand out, I added a buffer of vellum in between the papers and letter stickers.
I also combined stickers and chipboard accents from various mini kits in the FOTM in this layout. I liked that despite being from varying companies and collections, they blend together well.

And here are some close ups...

"Happy Party" (The ScrapRoom February 2019 Flavors of the Month Kit)

Hi there friends. Today I'm sharing the layout that I created for my "recipe" assignment for The Scraproom kit club. 

Products used: Echo Park “Let’s Party” + Embellishment kit
Stash items used: Date stamp (Studio Calico); Ink (Black, My Favorite Things); Circle cutter (Creative Memories); Vellum (WorldWin Cardstock)
Notes:
This is my page for the recipe assignment. I had plenty of photos of this event and so I placed most of them on the left page and then to balance the layout, I added my title, journaling and most of the embellishments on the right side.
There’s a text paper in this mini kit and I liked it behind some of my photos but I also needed my photos to shine against it so I added a mat of vellum for each of the photo so there’s a little bit of buffer between the photo and the busy pattern paper.

And here's the process video for it...

Here are some detail shots as well... 




Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope that you'll check out the other projects created with the latest Flavors of the Month kit over at The ScrapRoom kit club blog and website.

"You Are Loved" (The ScrapRoom February 2019 Flavors of the Month Kit)

Happy Friday friends. Today the latest Freaky Fast Friday challenge from The ScrapRoom kit club was revealed. You can see it here too..

And here's my take on the challenge, using the latest Flavors of the Month kit.
Products used: Crate Paper “La La Love” + Embellishment kit
Stash items used: Date stamp (Studio Calico); Ink (Black, My Favorite Things); Ink (Tea Dye, Distress Mini Ink Pads); Black Pen (American Crafts); Brown twine (Doodlebug Design Inc.)
Notes:
This is my page for the FFF assignment. I used the 3 3.25” x 4.25” pieces on the bottom to hold my title, journaling and some other fun embellishments. I love that I was able to incorporate 3 photos and still had space to put “fun stuff” like die cuts, tags and stickers.

Here's the process video for this page...

And here are some more close ups... 




Thank you for stopping by and I hope you'll join us this month by creating a layout for the challenge.

Till next time,

"Sweet Love" (The ScrapRoom February 2019 Flavors of the Month Kit)

Hi there my friends. I seldom create a page with just one photo, but once in a while I get an image and although it is imperfect in many ways, it also is perfect in the emotion that it evokes to me. This photo was one of them. I documented it and the feelings behind it using the latest Flavors of the Month kit from The ScrapRoom kit club. 

Products used: Simple Stories “Kissing Booth” + Embellishment kit
Stash items used: Date stamp (Studio Calico); Ink (Black, My Favorite Things); Scallop border punch (Fiskars); Pink Cardstock (DCWV); Small ampersand sticker (October Afternoon); Ink (Tea Dye, Distress Mini Ink Pads)
Notes:
I rarely use one single photo for my pages, but this one is just so precious to me. It shows my kids and their cousins. These three, although living miles apart, always have a great time when they get together. To make this page fun and also to feature all of the papers in this mini collection, I cut the papers out into small squares and created a quilt block on the right side. I then used the papers as a backdrop for those cute die cuts and stickers that came in the kit.
I have this wider space between two of the rows of the blocks. That’s because I eye balled my placement of the blocks and didn’t quite get it to even out. I had thought of putting something there, maybe a strip of paper or washi but at the end, I like how plain that is. It gave the eye some rest amongst all of the busyness of the rest of the layout.

And here's the process video...

And here are some more close ups....
