October Sketch Video with Laura!

Hello there!

I am thrilled to be sharing another layout for My Creative Scrapbook, as well as a sketch and process video!  The October main kit was so fun to create with, especially with these sweet photos of my grandson!


This layout was created based on the monthly sketch challenge at My Creative Scrapbook, which was created by yours truly!  I am thrilled to be creating sketches for them for the next while!

I love the way the kraft paper background (from my stash) helps all the pretty colours pop on this page!


You know I love a multi font title, and this one packs a punch with the oversized die cut alphas from Jillibean Soup!


Oh and these sweet farm animal die cuts, I am such a fan!


As suggested in the sketch, I added some stitching but I kept mine more on the boxy side.

Here is a look at the sketch for you!


I would love to see you play along, you can link up over at My Creative Scrapbook.

You can view my process video below or on my You-Tube channel here.


Supply List: (from the kit) Jillibean Soup Farmhouse Stew patterned papers (bless your heart, goodness gracious, bite size bits), die cut alphas, label stickers, puffy stickers, pea pod parts; Echo Park brads; rustic twine. (Other Supplies) Mr. Huey's brown mist; Tim Holtz 'gathered twigs' distress marker; misc. paper clip; Bazzill cardstock.

Step by Step with Yvette!




Hi My Creative Scrapbook fans!  It's Yvette here with you today, sharing a step by step tutorial using this month's October Main kit!

The main kit this month features the gorgeous Jillibean Soup Farmhouse Stew Collection and I just couldn't resist creating a page with lots of flowers!     


First I selected the two patterned papers I wanted to use for my flowers and then pick a third to use for the center.   


Next, using a pencil I drew a bunch of petals and then cut each one out with a small scissors...this took me a little while to do :)))

    
To create the middle of my flowers I used the Reinforce Hole Punch from We R Memory Keepers, this went much faster than the petals. 

    
At this point I started playing around with the placement of the flowers, once I was happy with the arrangement I glued in place. 


Now, you cannot have a page of flowers without adding a few butterflies and this kit just happen to have these adorable small wood veneers butterflies from Jillibean Soup! 

I pierced holds in a few places around my layout to create a swirls design and just stitched with beige colored thread, I love the extra texture this added.   



Next, I added the wood veneers butterflies and using a few of the decorative brads (also in this month's main kit) to add extra dimension to the center of the flowers.  


I keep the embellishments to a minimum so as not to overload the page, and love how beautiful this page turn out!  


I hope you felt inspired today and if you're not a subscriber yet, give it a try. The kits are all so beautiful and you will not regret it!!!!

Thanks for stopping by :) xx Yvette

Step by Step with Monique!

Hello MCS fans!! It's Monique with you today to share another step-by-step tutorial for one of the pages I created with the fabulous October Main Kit.

I created a layout about my daughter and her love for books. As I totally adore the large die-cut letters from Jillibean Soup in this kit I just had to feature those! Here's the page I did:


And here's a quick step-by-step how I created this layout:

1. Gather everything you think you're going to need including a square photo (sized 10 cm x 10 cm or 4" x 4" including the white border):


2. Decide on a title for your page and place the letters in a circle on your background paper leaving one corner free for the photo. Use just a little bit of adhesive, so you can alter the position of the letters later-on if needed:  


3. In the October Main Kit you'll find many fun word stickers. Choose the smaller ones or cut larger word stickers in half and adhere these in a circle right beneath the letters you just adhered: 


4. Mat your photo and place it in the corner you left open. Embellish the right bottom corner of the photo a little: 


5. Type and print your journaling using lots of different fonts. My journaling consists of titles of my daughter's favorite books only.


6. Using the letter stickers from the Jillibean Soup cardstock stickers sheet add a few words before gluing printed journaling strips in place: 


7. (Hand) cut your journaling into small strips and fill the circle with these. Add one or two die-cuts as well: 


8. Sew the large die-cut letters in place either using your sewing machine or by hand. Add a few drops of yellow color mist and a date stamp and maybe a few extra embellishments and you're done!


Here are a few more close-ups: 



My daughter is very happy with how this turned out and asked if she could have the layout framed to hang in her room! Hope you like it too! 

I really really love this month's kit, Jillibean Soup is one of my very favorite manufacturers and I'm so happy Pam included the entire Farmhouse Stew collection in this kit, including all the papers twice (!), the cardstock & puffy stickers and all the die-cuts, including the large letters! 


Can't wait to see what you'll create with this kit. Don't forget to share your projects on our "inspiration central" facebook page

Thank you so much for stopping by our blog today and if you want to see more pages created with this fabulous kit then hop over to the Design Team Gallery

Process Video with Laura!

Hello there!

Hi there!  I am sharing another layout and process video with you today!  This page was created with the gorgeous October Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook!  The kit is amazing, featuring goodies from Jillibean Soup's "Farmhouse Stew" collection and Simple Stories "Happy Harvest" collection, I know you will love it! As I mentioned last week, it is the perfect blend of Fall and everyday goodies!


Last week, I  shared an everyday sort of layout using the kit so today I would like to share a Fall themed layout!

I was inspired by the free cut files offered at My Creative Scrapbook this month, particularly the pumpkin.  So I duplicated that little cutie several times and welded them together to create this large die cut for my page.


I love the way it turned out, especially since I kept things simple and used the same Jillibean Soup patterned paper to back the whole thing.


From there, I created a visual triangle with my photo, title and an embellishment cluster.


I think it sort of looks as if these three elements are in the pumpkin patch!


I made a point of repeating colours in each of these three areas, to keep them looking cohesive since each area is quite different.

You can view my process video below or on my You-Tube channel here!


Supply List: (from the kit) Jillibean Soup Farmhouse Stew patterned papers (bless your heart, hold your horses, goodness gracious, kiss my grits), die cut alphas, label stickers, puffy stickers, pea pod parts; Simple Stories Happy Harvest 3x4 and 4x6 journaling card elements and cardstock stickers.  My Creative Scrapbook cut file. (Other Supplies) Mr. Huey's white mist; Tim Holtz tiny attacher.

Thanks so much for visiting today!

Check out Shona's Tag


Hi everyone! Today I have a step by tag created with the gorgeous Limited Edition Kit from the October My Creative Scrapbook kit collections. To start let recycle some of the flower packaging in the kit as the tag base. Grab some scraps and pieces of leftover papers too!

I covered the tag with kit papers and distressed them. I also picked out a small tag from the chipboard pieces in the kit. Add some cardboard behind some to pop them up.

I added the pieces to the background along with a paper doily and some trims from the kit.

Add a few blooms and more accent pieces from the kit. I finished it all off with a few splatters of Shimmerz Inklingz.

This kit is amazing and someone is going to love this tag attached to a gift over Thanksgiving.



That is it for me today. Make sure to check out all the gorgeous kits available this month! I will be back with more shares from the October kit! Take care and happy scrapping!
