Documenting Your Pets with Eunyoung

0 Comments

Hello, GB fans. It’s Eunyoung here with a 8.5 x 11 scrapbook layout. I created a scrapbook layout for my cat. I used the April Main Kit. You can see how pretty the April Main Kit is with my page.

I adopted a cat in Februry. We called her “Hongcha”. It’s Korean and it means a black tea. When I was naming hers, I received a gift for a black tea (Je t’Aime of Ninas). The tea tastes sweet. I hope she will be happy & sweet with my family. It is beacuse of this that I named her  ”Hongcha”.

 

After I arranged a photo, die-cuts and label stickers on a white cardstock, I added machine stitching on the die-cuts & label stickers. I often use machine stitching on die-cuts as an embellishment. I added them with a pop-dots & glue dots for 3D effect. I added a title using a wood word from the Main Kit.

I stamped the date of her arriving at my home and added her name on label stickers with alphabet thickers. I finished by embellishing with puffy stickers.

What do you think of me scrapbooking my cat? I hope you enjoy it and it inspires you to create!!

Thank you for stopping by.

Spring Inspired Layout

Hey friends! I’m so excited to be back this month sharing another project. The color scheme of the April kits just gave me all the heart eyes and I couldn’t wait to get crafting!

I used the main kit to create a fun spring-inspired layout.


I couldn’t help myself with those die cuts and went a little crazy embellishing. Luckily, this was one of those times that I let my crazy die cut loving heart take over and I am so in love with the outcome!!!

I was also loving those word strip stickers. The sentiments were perfect for this layout so I went to town and stuck them everywhere! I’m a big fan of word strip stickers and every time I look at this layout I feel so happy seeing them stuck all over the place. It’s basically like an explosion of how happy my heart feels around this silly guy!

As always, I’ve loved playing with the GB kits and sharing my projects with y’all. I can’t wait to see what you create using the April kits!

Quick Layout with Diane

Hey crafty friends! Did you know that the exclusive pocket cards that are part of the Life Pages kit and scrapbook paper that features designs in pocket scrapbooking sizes can be a great time saver when it comes to making quick layouts? 

Using my pocket cards along with a few stickers and a square punch I created a layout in record time.

To further simplify the process I used a grid for the design of my layout. I place the photo in the center and surrounded it with squares of equal size filled with phrases and embellishments that coordinated with the theme of my photo.

For the finishing touches I added machine stitching to various elements of my design and a white alpha title for a tone on tone look.

Thanks so much for visiting today. I hope this inspires you to use your pocket cards for traditional layouts. The designs are fabulous and coordinate perfectly with the Main Scrapbooking kit too.
