The Scrappery CT - "Me + You = Us"

Happy Easter everyone. I hope you are all having a lovely day with family or if you are reading this after hope you had a great day filled with family fun. So far we are just relaxing at home today and enjoying some family time.

Although I would have liked to have had a Easter inspired layout/project to share I do have a layout which I love and is a lot simpler then what I normally do.  I love, love, love how this turned out and I really like how it is cute and soft but without a whole lot of embellishments.
 
 
I knew when I first got the 'Jade' kits I wanted to use the gorgeous gold glitter die cut as a title on one of my projects but I just didn't know how I  would us it a I am normally a Thickers girl for a title. After watching a few of HeyNaeDaily's videos on YouTube I was inspired by her layouts which have the photo in the center. So after added al my layers behind my photo I added the die cut underneath and made a bow out of one of the papers in the kit and added that too.
 
 
 
Behind my photo I added one f the beautiful dedicate doilies which come in the kits (Which you are unable to see), I also added same of the papers from the kits also. Within all the layers I added some white tulle to add a another element to make the layout soft and delicate.
 
 
I also got some of my trusty American Crafts cardstock from my stash nd got the Cricut machine out of the box to cut some die cut eaves which I added to both sides of the photo. I also added a gold paper clip which was in one of the past kits.
 
 
And last but not least I added some enamel dot from my stash an added a few splatters of the grey KaiserCraft spray which in The Colour Kit.
 
 
I hope you all have/had a wonderful Easter break and I will see you next week with another project.

The Scrappery CT - Mini Boxes

Good morning friends, I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. I sure am as school holidays is already half over but I have had loads of time to create.
When I first had the idea for todays project I thought this would be perfect for an Easter project on the blog, but once I started making it didn't turn out Easter at all. But you could always use it as an Easter idea.

Here is this weeks project which I loved to make as I don't normally do anything else other then my normal 12x12 layouts, cards and Project Life. These cute little noodle  boxes I made using a template I had, I am sure you could find a template on Pinterest ect.
 
 
I love how these turned out. All they used was a 6x6 size piece of patterned paper, adhesive and some embellishments. As I mentioned before I really wanted to make these for Easter but they didn't really turn out that way but I am sure you can see how s=cute they would be for Easter filled for some chocolate Easter eggs.
 
 
I did add some embellishments from past kits but used the papers and KaiserCraft gems. All these needed were a few small embellishments as these boxes are quite small.
 
 
 
And to finish them off I added a piece of bakers twine from my stash which I think made them cute. I did use those KaiserCraft bloom which I am loving at the moment.
 
 
 
And this navy twined worked perfectly for one of the three boxes I made.
 
 
Well I hope you all like this idea and make some of your own for Easter perhaps. I sure did have a lot of fun making them as they are really easy.
 
 
Have a great week ahead.

The Scrappery CT - "16th"

Good morning beautiful people. Well I am finally back with another blog post. It has been a cray few days being with the interruption of Ex Tropical Cyclone Debbie who made her may down into south-east Queensland where I live which made us stuck at home for a good two days due to major flooding after nearly 250mm of rain. But  am back and on school holidays which mean only one thing, more scrapping time!!!

So since it is nearly time for new kit releases I am starting to get a little low on my current kit so I knew it was time to create a card. This year is a big year for my group of friends are it is the year we all turn 16. I thought it would be a good idea to start making a few birthdays for my friends.
 
 
As I have mentioned before I don't normally use chunky embellishments so I wouldn't normally use the KaiserCraft flowers but I am loving them which meant I had to use some on this card. And it wouldn't be complete without some of the KaiserCraft pearls.
 
 
And instead of just putting Happy Birthday on the front I just used the KaiserCraft gold numbers and teal alphas for 16th.
 
 
All the papers I used are from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio Hello Lovely collection which is included in the current kits. I did also use a tag from the Cocoa Vanilla cut apart sheet which is in the PLK kit.
 
 
So I hope you all liked this card I made and hopefully next weekend I will have the new kits ready  to get scrapping with and let me tell you the new release kits are stoning and you will love them.
Have a lovely week.

The Scrappery CT - "Just Lovely"

Hello scrappy peeps, I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday. I sure am while doing school assignments and a few crafty things while it rains here in south-east Queensland.
Today I am sharing a fun grid style layout using the "Jade" kits.

Here is the full layout.
This has to be my favourite layout so far using these kits. Before joining The Scrappery team I had never used Cocoa Vanilla Studio but now I am just in love with all their collections.

 
 I really wanted to use the three squares by 3 squares are I don't normally do that design style. Each square is 3x3 inches (I think). I did have one of the squares for my photo to be in. And with this kit there are so many cute mini embellishments that I could make many little clusters around the page.


 The paper doily I placed behind my photo I think made the layout soft and delicate.

 
For all my little embellishment clusters throughout the layout I used the Cocoa Vanilla Studio cut a part sheets that came in the PLK.
 


Now I may have mentioned this before in a bog post but I don't normally go for embellishments that give my pages a lot of dimension except for the likes of flair and some foam tape. But since getting The Scrappery kits I have jumped outside comfort zone and started using the KaiserCraft floral blooms which are perfect for my love of clusters.

 
 

So there you have it another layout using the "Jade" kits. As I mentioned earlier this is my favourite layout so far using these kits. I better get going on my school assignments so that I can have some creative time to create next weeks project for you scrappy peeps to see.

Have a great week.

The Scrappery CT - "Sunday Vibes"

Happy Sunday fellow Scrappery peeps, I hope you are all having a relaxed last day of the week. Today I am back to share another 12x12 layout using the "Jade" kits. I love these kits because of the fun bright colours with the add of florals and elements.

Todays layout is featuring the chevon 12x12 cut file sheet from KaiserCraft which is in the TSK.
 
 
If you are like me and love to do lots of embellishing on your layouts don't be scared to do a little bit of fussy cutting. All the paper embellishments I have used on this layout are all from the PLK cut a par sheets.
 
 
I knew I wanted to use some of the KaiserCraft paper blooms as I don't normally use embellishments that give too much dimension. But I love how they look on this layout. I did also add a mini flair from my stash.
 
 
 
I love how fun the KaiserCraft cut file sheet gives to this page with one of the pieces of patterned paper from the TSK and  love how bright and colorful it is.
 
 
 
 I hope you all have a lovely Sunday and end up doing a bit of scrapping during the day.

The Scrappery CT - "Happy Snapper"

Good morning everyone on this fine Sunday morning (well it's a bit overcast here in south-east Queensland). Today I will be sharing a quick 12x12 layout I created in-between my mountain of school assignments using the new "Jade" kits.

Even though this layout is simple for I like how it tuned out. And I love all the colours in these kits.
 
 
I didn't do any layers under my photo other than the doily which gives the page a nice delicate feel. I did add some paper strips to give it a design element on the left hand side.
 
 
Now you all know I have to have at least one cluster somewhere on my layouts. I did only do on big cluster (yes, I know only one cluster) which was situated on the bottom right hand corner of my photo. I added lots of embellishments which were in the Pretty Little Pieces which come in the TSK, PLK and BPK kits.
 
 
I added that gorgeous tulle and fabric flower, some of the KaiserCraft paper blooms, gold chevrons from the stickers sheet in the PLK, some of the beautiful sequins and KaiserCraft pearls, the gold glitter leaves, a tag and my title using the beautiful teal alpha stickers from KiaserCraft from the TSK.
 
 
I know this is a quick blog post today but I will be back very soon (maybe with another layout during the week) for you all. I hope you have a wonderful Sunday and start of the week and get some time to create using your "Jade" kits.

The Scrappery CT - Weeks 47 & 48 Project Life Spread

Happy Sunday everyone, Lydia back today to share my first Project Life style layout using the brand new 'Jade' kits I use the PLK and a mix of the other kits. Unfortunately I didn't have a project last week due to having a school assignment due but I am back and I am very excited because the brand new January kits arrived at my door during the week.
 
 
I am excited to share my first Project Lie spread here on The Scrappery blog as I almost have a whole year to catch up on.

Here is the whole spread. I love all the colours which are in these kits.
 
 
Here is the left side of the spread.
 
 
And the right side of the spread.
 
 
I loved using the Cocoa Vanilla cut apart sheets which came in the PLK. Since this was my first time receiving the PLK I knew I wanted to share a Project Life spread with it because how could I not with all those gorgeous colours. Ronelle does an amazing shop coordinating and designing all the kits.

So here are a few close ups of the little embellishment clusters I did around the spread.
 
 
Oh I am in love with those KaiserCraft florals and sequins together, you will be seeing that a lot this month.
 
 
 
And this weeks spread actually included me receiving my first DT package as part of The Scrappery CT.
 
 
 
So I hope you all enjoyed my first Project Life spread and my first creation using the brand new January 'Jade' kits.

Have a wonderful week, Lydia xxx.
