Mixed Media Canvas with the Scrappery Color kits!


Hello scrappy friends, Cathi back again! This week I am back with something a bit different! I did a mixed media canvas using the Color Kits from the Jade and Nigella kits, along with cutaparts from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) and doilies from the main kit (TSK).  Something a bit different, but I love how it turned out!! Lots of layers of colors and I like how some of the patterns are subtle building up the layers.


For this first photo you can see several patterns I did as well as the cut aparts.  I started the canvas my spraying the Kaisermist Pink and Winter Gray mists to do a full coverage of the canvas. I let the colors run down the canvas for some lovely effects.  Here you can see where I used the Kaisercraft Acrylic Pink paint from the TSK to make some roses with the stencil in the Jade color kit...subtle but gorgeous effect!


The chevron pattern is also a stencil from the Jade kit while the Heidi Swapp silver metallic texture paste came from the Nigella Color Kit.


Here you can see the roses popping out from the canvas adding subtle layers. I have added several doilies and cut outs to add detail and movement to the canvas.

This Life Is Pretty Wonderful! A layout and Project Life spread for the Scrappery Kit Club


Hello fellow scrappers, I'm back again with another layout and Project Life spread with the gorgeous Jade kits!  I am really enjoying this size this year and think I will be sticking with it for a while! This project uses a lot of Kaisercraft and Cocoa Vanilla goodness and continues the documenting of my daughter's trip to London with her ballet class!


The layout for this project features a specialty paper from Kaisercraft. It is embossed with some beautiful subtle floral patterns and I used the pink and gray Kaisermists from the Color Kit to color the background and have the pattern show more clearly. I always add a small strip of kit paper to the edge of the page protectors where the holes are punched, this paper is a Kaisercraft floral from the Dream Big collecton included in the main scrapbooking kit (TSK).


In this close up above you can see some of the layers of gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla papers from the main kit tucked under the photo. The title "this life is pretty wonderful" is from a Cocoa Vanilla cut apart sheet from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK). I added a coral Kaisercraft Paper bloom and some sequins from the TSK and some splashes of color from the Kaisermist sprays.


Here you can see where I used the chevron stencil to spray the pink Kaisermist. I have added some more paper layers tucked under the photo, some more paper blooms and sequins and a cute die cut leaf flourish from the TSK.


I finished my layout with some strips of journaling about my daughter's trip, you can see where I have sprayed the gray Kaisermist which has really brought out the floral pattern in the background of the specialty paper!


Lots of fun photos in the Project Life spread to accompany the layout! They loved shopping, riding the tube and eating...


These times together were "priceless" for this photo I simply added the cutout from the PLK Cocoa Vanilla cut apart sheet.  I added a few simple pearls from the Bits & Pieces Kit (BPK) in the top corner of the photo to finish it off.

  
I love the Best Day ever cut out, I just popped it up on foam tape and added some pink rhinestones from the TSK. For the photo I simply added some teal pearls from the PLK along with more cut outs "remember" and "always".



For my final pocket in my Project Life spread I added the 4x6 card of the gorgeous Dream Big Kaisercraft paper from the PLK, added a doily, some fun photos of the girls on the Tube again and a little bow from the Pretty Little Pieces in the and the pearls from the BPK.

London Happiness: A layout and Project Life spread for the Scrappery Kit Club

This month my layouts and Project Life spreads are going to feature my daughter's trip to London with her ballet class since I consistently fail these days to capture day to day life in photos. Thank goodness for a selfie obsessed teen who has a bigger social life than me!!

This layout and spread feature lots of different papers from the main scrapbooking kit (TSK) as well as Project Life cards from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) and gorgeous embellishments from the Bits & Pieces Kit (BPK).


My project life spread features Aine with some of her ballet buddies and of course the title card for the spread!


I used the plain mint green cardstock in the PLK For my title card. I used a doily and small alphas from the BPK, the chevron piece is from a Cocoa Vanilla paper in the main kit. The stamp is also from the PLK. The gold letters are from the past Nigella kit.


 The "This was..." card and the cut out embellishments are from the PLK from a Cocoa Vanilla cut apart sheet. The pink rhinestones are from the TSK


This photo and the Snapchat graphic she added were perfect, so I used only minimal embellishment, some words from a paper in the TSK and some clear rhinestones from the Nigella BPK.

The layout I did for this week features the teal ombre Simple Stories Heart paper as a background to the Kaisercraft chevron die cut paper both in the TSK. I really love that effect!


As always I used lots of layers to build up my page. Here you can see labels and a heart embellishment from the Cocoa Daisy cut apart sheets in the PLK.  I tucked in a doily under the photo and some of the mini blooms found in the TSK and BPK! The die cut leaves come from the Pretty Little Pieces set.


I fussy cut some flowers that I tucked in under the right of the flower. Again I layered paper scraps under the photo and added the "Hello Happiness" title.


To finish off the layout, I used some of the teal paper and printed some journaling onto it, cut it into strips and added it to the layout. I like the way the teal in the journaling balanced the teal at the top of the paper and in the Project Life on the other side.

Once again I added strips on the hole punched edge to finish off the layout and Project Life spread and tie them together.

Cards with the gorgeous Scrappery Jade Kit!


Hello! Cathi back again with a set of cards using my Jade kits!  I always love to do a variety of projects with my kits each month, and cards are always a must!! I am really happy with how these turned out!


For my first card I used the beautiful Free Spirit Wildflowers paper from the main scrapbooking kit (TSK) for my base and the great cut apart sentiment from the Eclectic paper from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) "Hello You Make Me Smile".  I popped the sentiment up on foam tape in the center of the card. For this card I thought the flowers from the kits would be perfect, so I added the lovely cloth flower from the kit, the gorgeous Kaisercraft Sea Breeze Mini Blooms in mint from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK) and the Coral Mini Paper Blooms from the TSK.  I added the cute heart sequins from the Pretty Little Pieces from the TSK and the pearls from the BPK and finished off the card with some sewing around the edges.


For my second card I used the gorgeous Simple Stories Laugh Lots paper from the TSK for my base. The foiled hearts are on other side of this chevron pattern and make a great embellishment. I used the "Because I'm Happy" cut out from the PLK Cocoa Vanilla Free Spirit Eclectic cut out sheet popped up on foam for my sentiment. The teal Kaisercraft pearls from the PLK are a perfect little finishing detail for this clean card along with the stitching on the border.


For my final card I am using the TSK Cocoa Vanilla Free Spirit Wildflowers paper again for my base. The white tag comes from the Pretty Little Pieces kit in the PLK. and the other two tags com from Cocoa Vanilla Hello Lovely Lucky Dip cut apart sheet also in the kit.  The sentiment is from the Cocoa Vanilla Free Spirit Eclectic page and is popped up on foam for added dimension. The pink rhinstones come from the TSK and to finish off the card I added twine bows from my stash and some stitching around the edge.
