My Girl Step by Step tutorial


Hello friends! Today I have another step by step tutorial for you! This layout is somewhat simple but I really wanted to focus on 2 things. First, the picture of my sweet daughter and second, journaling of what her favorites were at that time (which is hidden). This picture of her was taken in the Spring so I wanted all of the elements of the Creative kit to reflect that.


Here is a look at the fabulous February creative kit that I used for my layout...


I started out with a sheet of white 12x12 cardstock and pulled out some of the softer "springy" die cuts and frames.


I started this process by adhering the two frames down on to the cardstock with the pink one overlapping the greenish blue frame.


Next, I took a piece of 8 1/2" x 6 1/4" white cardstock and folded it in half to make a card base. I matted my picture with the pink flower pattern paper and adhered to front of card base.


For the inside, I adhered this printed list of all her favorites from a couple of years ago. Years from now, she will enjoy looking back on what she liked and disliked at the time.


After my picture was adhered down, I started building up clusters around the page. 


Next was simply adding some pink sequins.


Here are some close-ups of the clusters on the layout.





And here is the finished layout...


I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and by now are enjoying one of the fabulous February kits!  My Creative Scrapbook

Lori Whitlock February 2018 Blog Hop



Hello friends! It's time for the Lori Whitlock February Blog Hop and I am so excited to be doing my very 1st blog hop! You should have arrived from Michelle's blog.

I love making homemade Valentine's! I used the 

Pop Up Drawer Heart Tree and the Wooden Crate in combination to create a super sweet Valentine gift set. You can also find these cuts in the Silhouette store...Pop Up Drawer Heart Tree and Wooden Crate.



The cut file itself is absolutely adorable but I love shaker cards! So I added some foam strips and made a pink polka dot window to add to the top of the original cut to create this fun shaker box.



I also adjusted the tree and hill cuts to fit my crate box. I absolutely LOVE how this turned out and can not wait to give it to my special Valentine!


Don't forget to get your free file and enter to win a gift certificate!

Wintertime Fun step by step tutorial


Hello friends! I'm here with you today to share a step by step tutorial on my Wintertime Fun layout. There are so many fun elements to the My Creative Scrapbook Creative kit this month that I was wowed with them all when I opened my kit! As soon as I saw the snowman stamp and die set, I knew I had to have one of those sweet snowmen on a layout. So let's get started!


I started off with a sheet of white cardstock. I trimmed out the blue stripes from the border strips paper and then trimmed them into 2 separate pieces. Adhere them to the top and bottom of the cardstock. Slip the scalloped blue/black border sticker under the bottom piece.


I trimmed a photo of our tiny and adorable snowmen down to 3.5" x 3.5" and layered papers behind. With a pencil, I placed a tiny mark on the top right corner and bottom left corner for my next step.


I used some Tattered Angel Silver Sugar Glimmer Mist and an ink blending tool to create the look of glimmering snow coming from behind my picture.

Instead of misting, I opened the bottle (after shaking it up good) and flipped it upside down on the blending tool to get a fair amount of the mist. Then using a sweeping motion, I went from corner to corner so it would peek out from around my picture.


After the Glimmer Mist had dried, I adhered my picture onto the cardstock and started all of the fun of placing embellishments.


In the picture below, you can see that I added one of the tags upside down. I knew that once I had my snowman ready to go, he would cover up the words and only the pretty blue pattern on the tag would show. I added some of the other tags and stickers to my layout. *One little side note - Once I had my snowman tag on the bottom right corner of the layout, I realized I wanted to carry the Glimmer Mist to that corner as well.


Now comes that adorable little snowman! Instead of stamping in black ink, I wanted this little guy to really pop so I used silver embossing power and my VersaMark ink pad. I embossed 2 images...one on the blue patterned paper and one on the red patterned paper and used the die to cut them both out. Then I trimmed out the scarf on the red paper and adhered it to the snowman on blue paper.


And here he is! So cute!!


I adhered him to my layout and started working on adding some snowflakes around him with the snowflake stamps and stickers.


I felt like I needed a little something in the upper right hand corner with the wreath so I pulled apart this tag so I could use the mitten by themselves. I know I can find a use for the beautiful wood tag in another project. ;)


I used pop dots to raise the mittens above the wreath for dimension.


A few more embellishments and finishing the title with a sticker and call it done!


I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and by now are enjoying one of the fabulous January kits! Here is a look at the Creative kit from My Creative Scrapbook that I had the pleasure of working with!
