Gossamer Blue

Stacy’s Planner Layout

0 Comments

March is birthday month for my family. This month we celebrate my son’s, nephew’s, grandpa’s and mom’s birthdays. This month is something extra special, we celebrate my son’s 16th birthday, so what other way to create memories than to document them? This last year he got his very first checking account, definitely a growth milestone! I had to document that.

I am not a 12×12 scrapbooker. When the economy fell and scrapbook stores closed I stopped scrapbooking, but planning has brought light back into the scrapbook world.

Here I used my Happy Planner™️ to create a layout using my Gossamer Blue Main Kit. I just loved the solid blue cardstock that came with the kit and the watercolor paper; to create the background I cut out the watercolor brush strokes  and created “die cuts” and glued them on the cardstock. And the foam letters add such soft texture to the layout.

Sometimes making boy layouts with girlie styles can be difficult but as you can see I didn’t let that affect me, and guess what, small amounts of  pinks and yellows didn’t take away from the boy layout.

 Another thing I am getting addicted to are these epoxys, using them in the corners of the photos or shapes can create a wall art look.

Hope you guys enjoyed my layout, remember it’s okay to add pinks to boy layouts in small amounts and cut apart those 12×12 backgrounds, you can make really cool die cuts!!!

8.5″ x 11″ Layout by Neftali

Hello there, it’s Neftali here!

I’m happy to be back to share with you all this 8 1⁄2 x 11 layout today! This, in fact, is my very first time trying out this size and I love the change so much! I think trying out new things when it comes to scrapbooking is very important so that we could always be growing and finding inspiration.

That is why I decided to give this size a try and use the super adorable March Kits!

These kits are the perfect color palette for the beginning of spring and everything that comes with it. I immediately fell in love with the Shimelle Sticker Pack that’s included in the kit. It is FILLED to the brim with clear stickers, washi tapes, and label stickers.

You can see the variety of gorgeous stickers that complement my photograph. My favorite part about the Sticker Pack is that each page had different textured stickers so the possibilities are endless when pairing two stickers of each different sheet!

I added just a hint of yellow splatters that are almost unnoticeable unless you take a good look at the details.

I used a mixture of the Pink Paislee puffy sticker sheet, the Thickers and the sticker pack to create my title for this layout.

I think that this title has to be one of my favorites! I added a little extra texture to it by stitching across the word “beautiful” with my sewing machine.

Finally I finished off with my favorite way to balance off a page and that is a little cluster on the top corner! I used some more stickers from both the Pink Paislee and Shimelle Sticker sheets, plus another stick detail atop the “happy heart” and done!

I love this layout so much for so many reasons. But mainly because I had so much fun using such beautiful embelishments from this month’s kits. I hope that you guys have got your March kits and that I have inspired you to create all kinds of gorgeous spring layouts.

Until next time, stay crafty!

Three Cards: Three Ways to Use Your Kit Supplies

0 Comments

Hello everyone!!!  Kymona here again with another set of pretty cards for you!!  My creative style is clean and simple.  So when I saw the contents of March’s kit, I knew exactly what I wanted to create. 

Lets get started:

The March Kit is full of beautiful patterned paper, stickers, thickers and washi tape.  I couldn’t resist creating cards featuring all of these items. 

Card number 1: Pretty Patterned Paper

For this card:

1. Cut the card base to 4.25 by 11, scored at 5.50.

2. Cut a piece of patterned paper to 4.25 by 5.50.

3. Adhere the patterned paper to the card base using a tape runner.

4. Select a sentiment thickers and adhere that sentiment and shape on the card front.

Nice and simple!

Card Number 2: Pretty Washi Tape

Washi tape that comes on the sheets are awesome to work with because you do not have to figure if they go together.  They do!!  LOL!!

It makes it easier to layer them on your card front.

Here’s how I created this card:

1. Cut the card base to 4.25 by 11, scored at 5.50.

2. Choose three washi tape strips, cut them on a diagonal and place them on your card front.

3. Select a sentiment and shape thickers and adhere them on the card front.

Super simple and easy.

Card Number 3: Sticker Sentiments

Using sticker tabs to create a sentiment is fun and different.  No two cards will be the same!

Here’s how I created this card:

1. Cut the card base to 4.25 by 11, scored at 5.50.

2. Decide which sentiments you want on your card front and adhere them in order.

3. Use a corner rounder to round off all 4 corners.

So what do you think?  I would love to hear from you.  These cards are easy to replicate and its a way to really use up all of the supplies in your kit.  Nothing goes to waste!!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
