MCS January Creative Kit projects.

I'm back to share the fun layouts I made with this month's Creative Kit from My Creative Scrapbook Kit Club.

Check it out!

This month the kit features the Happy Day collection from Pebbles along with a bunch of other fun goodies.

There are a bunch of fun little flags to cut out of one of the patterned papers. When I saw those, I was inspired to create this fun bunting on my layout.

 

There were so many cute images included in the sticker sheet. The little dog collar worked so perfectly for this layout...


And there were so many fun patterned papers in the kit that I had to use just about all of them together on this one layout! Don't you just love that little bike?


The 'hello' paper in the kit actually inspired this layout. It worked perfectly for these photos of my daughter meeting her Uncle for the first time...She wasn't so sure about his beard! LOL

I also really loved the dark wood accents on this layout...they added a little masculinity.


Make sure you stop by the MCS website to see the three other amazing kits this month as well as to take a peek in the Gallery at what the rest of our super talented design team did with their kits.

Christmas Cuties

Hi Friends!

I'm here with you today to show you how I put together my Christmas Cuties layout!


I love making grid style layouts! You are able to add more than one photo as well as a bunch of clusters fun embellishments.

I decided on 3 inch squares so that there would be a nice balance of photos, elements and the background behind. I trimmed the photos slightly so that I could add a white mat and make them stand out.

 
So lets start with the top of the layout. I used a diecut bow to make this square into a gift! Afterwards I popped up the small green gift diecut and layered it on top to make it look like a pile of gifts.

When I placed the Christmas tree in the top left square it looked a little to lonely to me, so I added the '25'. The tree has very thin pop dots under it and the '25' has thicker ones so that they are at different heights and create depth.


The title of my layout was pretty easy to come up with...how cute are those kiddos!?!? I wanted a word that would fit nicely in the square and the word 'cuties' worked perfectly with the Thickers. A few holly stickers finished it off.

In the bottom left corner I used pop dots once again behind the wreath sticker (I love for things to pop off the page). I used a piece of ribbon from the kit to make a tiny bow and added it to the bottom of the wreath.

The patterned paper in the middle square was just so cute I didn't want to cover any of it up so I left it as it is.

Finally I took the three ornament die cuts and lined them up along the top of the bottom right square. They looked a bit strange just hanging in space there so I added the 'JOY' stickers and it helped.

Well that's it for me today. I hope you enjoyed seeing how I put my layout together. There are SO MANY awesome stickers and die cuts in this kit I'm sure you could make a layout in the same style as me and use totally different embellies! I'd love to see it! Please make sure you share on our FB page.

Thanks for stopping by today

MCS December Creative Kit

Hello Friends!

I was excited to get to play with the Creative Kit this month from My Creative Scrapbook! Check it out! It features the Be Merry collection from American Crafts and comes with all kinds of awesome stickers and die cuts!


I'd like to share a few of the projects I created with my kit...


 All the red and green in this kit is so awesome! It makes the pages come together so easily they practically scrap themselves!

I love the milk and cookie embellishments. They worked perfectly for my pic of my little guy with his goodies for Santa.


All the bits and pieces in this kit were great for this layout. They gave me a lot of variety to add to each box in my grid. I added some pop dots under the embellies to give the layout some depth.


 The gingerbread items in the kit are so cute!


I think my most favorite thing in the whole it was this little elf sticker! That Elf on the Shelf is so popular these days, I know a LOT of you will have a use for him!

oh, and that strip of Santa's in the top left corner of my layout...that's WASHI TAPE!.....love it!


Thanks for stopping by and checking out my projects.

I have a few more to share with you so please check back soon!
And don't forget to check out what the rest of the DT did with their kits in our DT Gallery!

Merry Christmas!

My favorite organizer!

Hello Everyone!
Becky here with you today to share my favorite organizational item in my craft area....and it is this box! I got it at a big box craft store, but I'm sure you can find something similar in other places.

It is advertised as a storage system for organizing your 4x6 photos, with 16 clear cases inside....but I LOVE to use it for my embellishments!

here is my box all packed up and FULL of goodies...all organized in rainbow order of course!

I've got my cases divided into: Red/Burgundy, Orange/Peach, Yellow, Lime Green, other Greens, Teal/Aqua, Blue, Purple, Pink, Brown, Black/Grey, White, and Cream as well as boxes for Clear, Metal, and Wood Veneer to fill up all 16 cases! I labeled each with my label maker.

When I open a package of embellishments I just divide what is inside the package into their specific colours and add them to their box....These boxes seem to be mostly full of buttons...I love buttons!!!!
Take a peek inside a few of the boxes!

Each box has a clasp to close it up tight and the whole box closes up nice and snug to hold all my goodies. I love to take this with me to crops...it keeps everything right at hand.

You could easily add a spool of bakers twine in a corresponding color to each case as well!
As papercrafters I'm sure I don't have to tell you to find creative ways to organize your 'stuff' and to look at organizers that aren't necessarily made for scrapbooking, but I wanted to share one of my favorites with you.
What is your favorite organizational item in your scrap room???
