"Cherish" Layout for My Creative Scrapbook Kit Club using Dear Lizzy (American Crafts) 5th & Frolic





Hello there & happy Sunday to you all (well all of you to the West of me) Happy Monday to the rest of ya! I've had a GREAT weekend so am in a very good mood :)  I have plenty of blogging &  blog hopping to catch up on because...I have been busy SCRAPPING!!  I have plenty to show for it so better get to it!

I have been working on this wonderful new kit from My Creative Scrapbook - available for purchase HERE.  As usual it is chockablock full of beautiful papers & embellishments & I managed to create FIVE layouts with it & could have continued if I had the time!  You can easily get 6 or 7 layouts out of this kit - or 5 layouts & quite a few cards.  Great value!!


I really loved the lightness & whimsy of the Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic papers & tried to create an ombre effect here with my misting.


The "Cherish" title at the top was cut from the Prima Packaging that came behind the flowers & on the little wooden embellishments (which by the way are just adorable.)


We got a whole pack of sentiment stickers (which contained 2 sheets) so adding all the sentiments and other bits & bobs was really easy.  I just lifted some up to 3D them (using foam tape, 3D glue dots and box cardboard).


I used my stapler a lot as I was going for the casual "thrown together" look that I am so in love with at the moment.  The blue strip you see above is one of the identification strips from the bottom of one of the patterned papers (I used a lot of those!)


Hand journaling to keep it quick & easy & using up some of my pile of Mini-Instax photos as I was inspired to do that by the polaroid patterned paper.  I'm also enjoying embellishing with string & thread at the moment (loopy de loop style!) Can't get much cheaper than that :)


Everything comes from the kit except for the bubble punch, which is from Martha Stewart, the doilies from Bo Bunny, the mists from Tattered Angels (Lemon Zest & Key Lime) & Custard Mr. Huey from Studio Calico, the staples, black journaling pen (Schachihata 0.4), the string & the pink inkpad from Doodlebug - which I used to recolour the wooden Prima flowers.

I'm sorry the photos are not 100% clear.  I resized them down from 800x800 to 600x600 so that I could get them to fit into my blog template but am not happy with the result :(  so will revert back in future but for now all my kit club DT work is already edited & in draft this way.

Thanks for visiting & have a fantastic week everyone!
