The Scrappery CT - "Chasing Dreams" Gift Set

Good morning, I hope you ae enjoying your weekend and are able to get some creative time in before the week ahead. Well today I have a quick and simple little project I made using the gorgeous 'Blair' kits. I have already told yo all how much I love these kits.

So here is my project. Just a simple card and a tag. This would be perfect to finish off a gift with a because card and tag. These colours just call for my attention with the touch of gold also.


This is a simple by pretty card I made using some scrap pieces of paper. I added one of those beautiful gold puffy stickers, some of the chipboard Thickers, enamel dots from my stash and some ink splatters also to finish the card off.
 
 
Here are some close ups of the card.
 
 

Now the tag I love! Again I used some scrap pieces of paper that are included in the kits, some chipboard Thickers again and some more of the beautiful Maggie Holmes puffy stickers. And nothing is finished without some enamel dots that are from my stash.

 
Here are some close ups.
 
 
 
 
I hope this little project I have created this week has inspired you to make just a little something even if it is just a card or a simple tag.

Hope you all have a wonderful week ahead.

Helmar Design Team - Gold Featured on a Card

Hello my fellow Helmar fans. Lydia back to share a fun card that features GOLD!! Who doesn't love gold?  I had fun making this card because I got to try out some gold leaf.

So for this card I use:
  • Helmar Craft Glue
  • Plain card and envelope
  • Gold Leaf
  • Scrapbooking paper scraps
  • Embellishments
 IMG_0278
 First things first; the gold leaf. All I did was put a little bit of Helmar Craft Glue in places where I wanted to put the leaf. And very carefully place some gold leaf in those spots with glue and press it down.

And then I just used some left over scrapbooking paper to layer up in front of a paper doily. I then used some chipboard embellishments and finished the card with a few gold splatters which don't quite show up in the photos.

And here are some close ups of my card featuring gold. I love hw it turned out and the colours that I used worked so well with the gold.

The Scrappery CT - 'Happy Together'

Well hello Scrappery friends, Lydia back. I hope you are all well. So after starting a new school term and recovering from nearly three weeks with appendices, I am finally able to share a layout I created with the new 'Blair' kits.  Can I just say, I am in love with the colours and products in these kits.

So here is my first project using the kits.
 
 
Oh my, those colours are all me.  I love them so much. I did do some fussy cutting to give the page another element ad some dimension with those beautiful butterflies.
 
 
I love he botanical feel of this kit and the beautiful greens and pinks together. And you can't go past a little black and white also. I am also falling for those gold puffy stickers too.
 
 
A layout wouldn't be complete without one of those delicate doilies under the photo.  I also added some tiny words to my layout also.
 
 
And the title I used a mix of fronts form the Thickers that are in the TSK. And again I added some enamel dots to finish the page.
 
 
 
I hope you are all creating with your 'Blair' kits and I can't wait to see them if you post tem in the Scrappery Club Inspiration group on Facebook.

Have a wonderful day.

The Scrappery CT - 'happy sweet 16th birthday'

Hello Scrappery peeps, Lydia back to finally share another project using the 'Belle' kits. The past few weeks has been crazy with end of semester exams and then a school camp to start the school holidays, and in that process I lost my creative mojo and have been stuck in the ditch trying to get back out of it. But I am back and ready to get the paper and glue back out and to create.

So here is a project a I have been meaning to do a blog post for a few weeks and it is a sweet 16th card I made for one of my friends. I love how this card turned out wit the beautiful florals in the 'Belle' kits.
 
 
I did do a little bit of fussy cutting of the florals but it was worth it because they are gorgeous. I did use doily from my stash as it did need something delicate in the background.
 
 

I used the fabric Thickers and I also used one of the Cocoa Vanilla wood veneer words that says 'sweet'. I love the addition of the wood veneer and different font within the alpha's.
 
 
 
And of course to finished the card I added some of the beautiful glittery Cocoa Vanilla Studio enamel dots.
 
 
So I hope you like this card and I will sure be back very soon to share another project.
I am glad I am back and can't wait to do another blog post.
 
Hope you have a wonderful week ahead.

The Scrappery CT - 'beautiful heart'

Hello, hello Scrappery friends. Lydia back to share another layout using the 'Belle' kits. So I have been a little MIA lately due to the amount of school assignments but I am nearly over that hurdle of mid term assessment so I will have some time to scrap as I haven't scrapbooked in over 2-3 weeks.

I do hope you all have a lovely scrapping time last weekend on Inter National Scrapbooking Day/Weekend. And I hope that this weekend all of those precious mums are having a lovely Mothers Day today.

Here is my layout this week using the 'Belle' kits.
 
 
Have I mentioned how much I love these kits? These colours just sing to me. I love how this layout features the beautiful Cocoa Vanilla Studio "Oh My Heart" chipboard frames. I also love all the dimension on this layout too.

For the title I used one of the Cocoa Vanilla Studio chipboard stickers and a wood veneer.
 
 
 
And as well as the feature of all the frames I added a few embellishment clutters using the ephemera pack. And of course to finish the clusters I used some of the gorgeous glittery Cocoa Vanilla Studio enamel dots. 
 
 
 
I also added my photo behind the beautiful floral frame to make it stand out on the page. I also backed it with one of the gorgeous and delicate doilies. I did add some ephemera around the photo too with some more enamel dots.
 
 
 
 
I hope you all like this layout and I hop on this Mothers Day you are able to have some scrapping time.
 
Have a lovely day.

The Scrappery CT - 'happy day'

Good morning lovely people, Lydia back and  I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend an getting some creative time in there somewhere. I am not quite sure if I will get creative as I have a pile of school assignments to get done. So I am back to share my first layout using the new "Belle" kits. I am so excited about these kits as they are full of the beautiful Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'Wild At Heart' collection.

Here is my fist layout using the new "Belle" kits.
 
 
I did a centre design going down the page. So I knew I would have to add a little cluster somewhere off to the side. So at the top left corner I added some of the ephemera arrows, a bitty bloom and of course some enamel dots.
 
 
I did add some stamping but unfortunately you are unable to see it in these photos. I used the gorgeous mini KaiserCraft floral stamp that come in the TCK. So behind my photo I added some layers of the patterned paper and also some of the speciality vellum too.
 
 
As for embellishments I used the beautiful floral pieces from the ephemera pack and also added some Circut die cutter leaves from my stash from cardstock.
 
 
And to the right side of the photo I also a few other embellishments. I used a few more bitty blooms, a cardstock ephemera arrow and one of the fun rubber embellishments. And of course to finish some more enamel dots.
 
 
For the title I used one of the Cocoa Vanilla Studio wood veneer words and some of the Thickers that came in the kits. I also finished the page with some splatters using the KaiserCraft 'Peach' mist that came in the TCK.
 
So I hope you like this layout and grab some inspiration to create some layouts using your 'Belle' kits.
Have a great day.

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.
