Family - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone! I have been on a bit of a stamp kick lately if you have not noticed. Creative Embellishments has so many gorgeous stamps in the should check them out.

For my background I used the Distressed Text, Checked and Chevron stamps. I love how these distressed stamps add a big of grunginess to my project! I added some color and stencil work with Shimmerz Paint products.

I used the Rectangle Heart Frame chippy to matt the photo.

The two title chippys are from the Small Family Border Word Set..there are many words sets also in the store.

That is it for me for today! Don’t forget to check out the September challenge …. Make sure to share all of your creations on our Facebook page… Take care and Happy Scrapping!

Jounal Mini Book - Shimmerz Paints

Hello Shimmerz fans!! Today I have a share from my Olaf and Me Journal Mini Book. I went for soft earthy tones…those are my favs!

After applying my papers to the pages, I did stencil work with Salt of the Earth Paste-eez and Tidy Widy Texturez. I love both of these products for stencil work, one has a matt finish and the other a gritty more shimmery finish. The papers and flowers are from 49 and Market and the chippys from Creative Embellishments.

Here you can see the different textures on the two paste products.

Adding color is so much fun, the color combos are unlimited when you start with a plainer background.

For my background colors I used 4 Leaf Clover Spritz, Hot Fudge and Before Dawn Vibez.

Few more close-ups of the fun background and textures.


Check out our Facebook page for lots of inspiration and share with us what you created with Shimmerz! Look for us on Instagram too! Don’t forget to mention my name at the store checkout for your free sample of Shimmerz!!

Kiss - September Limited Edition Kit My Creative Scrapbook

Hi everyone! Today I have a step by step layout created with the gorgeous NEW September Limited Edition kit from My Creative Scrapbook. This kit is loaded with so many fun pieces to complete your projects!

First I layered pieces of the Blue Fern Studio papers in the kit. I distressed the edges a bit first.

Next lets do a bit of stamping with the text stamp included in the kit. I use a permanent ink always when I stamp…if you use mists or paints after  you stamp, the permanent ink will not run.

A little bit of stencil work in the background for added texture.

The Creative Embellishment chippy in the kit is first covered in gesso than I sprayed some of the kit golf mist to give it a soft finish.

Add your chipboard piece with some torn up pieces of paper doilys.

I added a cute title with the stickers in the kit and time to add more of that shiny gold mist.


Add your photo and I also added some dried up pieces from my garden.

Beautiful embellishments from the kit added to finish it all off.


That is it for me today. Make sure to check out all the gorgeous kits available this month! I will be back with more shares from the September kit! Take care and happy scrapping!

Creating a Background with Stamps - 49 and Market

Hello 49 and Market fans!! Every once in a while I like to go crazy with stamps..and this is one of my layouts that I have used so many stamps on. I started with the Vintage Artistry Flora and Fauna sheet and created my own background with lots of 49 and Markets tamps. After I created my outside stamped border I distressed the edges and glued to a piece of Heirloom Botanicals – the Patch Paper Pack sheet. Chippys are from Creative Embellishments.

 One close up of the stamped edges. I added some soft color with Shimmerz Paints.

Add some pieces from Vintage Artistry 6x6 paper pack behind the photo for dimension. In the background I also added Burlap Net Ribbon and lace trims for added texture. That beautiful butterfly is from the Cottage Life Layered Embellishments sheet.

My flower clusters consist of Garden Seeds Aloe, Garden Seeds Cotton,
Cottage Blooms Linen, and Seaside Blooms Aloe..adding in left over bits of the burlap.

I added some Jute Cording behind the photo.

One last close up…this is one of my favourite layouts that I have made! Try mixing up your stamps and create  your own background.

That is it for me today…Pop on by our Facebook page for lots of inspiration! Share your 49 and Market creations with us! Take care and Happy Scrapping!
