Curated Natural History for Get It Scrapped

Hi Everyone,

My daughter just loves bugs and has for years so this story was a perfect fit for a layout for the Curated Natural History blog post over at Get It Scrapped.  I used  different frames and items to create the look of a collection.  The embellishments and word in the frames adds to the overall look. I really enjoyed this topic and am pleased with how the layout came together.

It is story that I have been planning to tell for a fair while too but I would never have created it like this if not for the assignment.  So why not step out of your comfort zone and check out the examples from other members of the team here.  If the curated natural history look isn’t your thing there are lots of other articles that can inspire and challenge you.

Thanks for stopping by,

With Love Card

Hi everyone,

I created this card a couple of weeks ago using some of the Bo Bunny Enchanted Garden papers and embellishments.  It came together really quickly as the paper that I chose already had lots of detail and layering on it.  All it needed was a sentiment and an embellishment to balance things out.  I added some rock candy distress stickles to parts of the fairy to give it some extra detail/interest.  The stitching was stamped using a Bo Bunny stamp too.

A Couple of Layouts

Hi Everyone,

Renovations and chaos have taken over life over the last couple of months but I am starting to be able to move our stuff back into the new spaces.  The old house we bought over 10 years ago is unrecognisable now.  Completely stressful but totally worth it. Probably the part that will be most interesting to fellow paper crafters is my space that adjoins our kitchen.  I plan to share when I have settled on how things will be organised.  But for now a couple of layouts created for Get It Scrapped.

First up is a layout created for the Get It Scrapped blog article about using badges on your pages.  We used to read our kids the Secret Seven books by Enid Blyton before bedtime and they like to pretend to be the characters from the books so I made them some badges.  This page tells that story.  If you want more ideas for using badges on your scrapbook pages check out the article here.

When you start a page do you you begin with story or product?  Over on the Get It Scrapped blog a bunch of the the Creative Team made scrapbook layouts starting with product, sharing their ideas about how and when they start with the product as the inspiration.  My page for the article was inspired by a beautiful pastel paper by Prima.  It reminded me of a little girl’s birthday party and I hadn’t made a layout about my daughter turning three.  If you want to read more about this page and see other team member’s pages you can see them here.

New Creative Team at Get It Scrapped

Hi everyone,

I got a little bit of crafting done yesterday on the table in our patio (we are renovating our house so I have no kitchen or laundry or craft space) but didn’t quite complete my card but I hope to post it sometime over the weekend.  But onto more exciting news, there is a new Creative Team over at Get It Scrapped.  Some of the people have stayed on (like me) and there are few new additions as well.  The team is a mix of digital and paper scrapbookers with varying styles.  To celebrate the announcement of the team there is a bunch of stuff going on over at Get It Scrapped, including FREE stuff and prizes too.   If you sign up for the FREE Get It Scrapped membership this weekend (by June 2nd) you will also get Scrapbook Your Story for FREE.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you head over to Get It Scrapped blog for more info on the trivia and instragram challenges, prizes and free stuff too.  Say hi in the forums.  I will be there over the weekend and so will the rest of the team.  We would love ‘meet’ you!


PS. I have included the blog links for the members of the team.  There is lots of inspiration so well worth a look over a cup of coffee or whatever your drink may be.

Perfect Memory Layout

Hi everyone,

I think after this I am all caught up with posts of layouts created for Get It Scrapped.  Today’s layout shows some ideas for using tulle on your scrapbook layouts.

For my page I used a piece of red tulle in the same way that I would layer paper on my page and I also die cut some black tulle to make part of my flower embellishment. I also added some paint and ink to the tulle and papers to give it a more cohesive look.  When you are die-cutting tulle it is best to put a piece of paper under the tulle to ensure there is enough pressure to die cut the tulle.  The die I used was the Tattered Flowers die by Sizzix/Tim Holtz and these type of dies always give a good result with die cutting.  If you like this technique you could also experiment with some of the more intricate dies.

For more ideas and great layouts using tulle head on over to the Get It Scrapped blog article here.

I will be back soon with something new to share.

Thanks for stopping by,
