Remebering December with Kellie

Kellie here with you again to share another creation I made using the December Dreams kit, because you get so much within your kit, you really can just make and make and still have some left over and I LOVE that about these kits.  While the collection isn't available anymore as a whole kit, you can still get all the elements of the kit separately, except for one of the papers. 

DD_TFC_KELLIE_1Ok back on track.  I'm going to share with you a 6x4 layout I created x two for an album I'm determined to get finished this year.  It's a Remembering December album that is based on Christmas pasts and present.  i made a list to go off and have been working my way through.  This kit from The Fairytale Club couldn't had been a better fit.
DD_TFC_KELLIE_1What I love most about this kit is the colour theme.  Pink and red was actually the colour we went with on the tree for 2018 and I'm actually 80% sure the kit had a bit to do with my change from my traditional green, red and gold theme.  Tree looked amazing.  If you haven't already, subscribe! Each month the kits keep getting better and better and you won't want to miss them.
DD_TFC_KELLIE_1To create this layout I actually kept it rather simple.  What I love about the kits each month is there is always one or two 12x12 pattern papers that actually has cut outs, they are my FAV!  Like this Candy Cane - it works so well as a little flip card to then have the day number on the back and not taking it away from the photo or the pattern paper with the red scallops that I used to then add the journaling card, also from the cut out!  Before I go can we all agree the gingerbread man is the cutest!

Aimee's "Christmas-land" Mini Tag Album

Hey Fairytale Club Fans, this week our Design Team Members will be sharing some of their favorite projects they created this season using our 2 Christmas Kits “December Dreams” & “Christmas-land”!

First off we have Aimee with a Mini Tag Album using “Christmas-land”.


Hi there, Aimee here!

Have you all seen the Christmas-land kit? You know the one Andrea and Carolee did a workshop with.

Well it’s even better in person. Like way better! It’s so awesome, I made my husband take me to Disneyland on Christmas Day, just to take pictures so I could use the christmas-land kit and make this Album TRUE STORY!

And this mini tag album came out WAY better than I could have ever dreamed! For this album I used 2 of the 12x12 papers from the kit “Christmas at the Park” and “All I want for Christmas is a castle!” and some bookmark tags from my stash.

I printed all the photos I wanted to use with my Instax share printer. I cut up the 12x12 papers into the 3x4 journaling cards. I also used a few of the tags too.

I then placed the 3x4 cards with the bookmark tags and photos. Once I was happy with which tag went with what photo and what card, choose die cuts from the die cut pack that went with each pile of cards. When everything was placed, I adhered the photos to the bookmark tags. You can find a video of this on my YOU TUBE Channel.

I then stamped each photo with a different sentiment form a roller stamp. I also embellished each card/tag with puffy stickers and stickles to give them some added depth. Once I was happy with all of the embellishments, I punched a hole in the top of each card/tag.

I choose the “all I want for Christmas…” Journaling card as my cover for this album.

I attached a decorative pom pom paper clip to the top. I then placed all the cards on to a large binder ring and this created the album.

To create the bell dangle, I used a tassel from my stash along with some jump rings. I added 1 or 2 bells from the Christmas-land Variety pack to each jump ring and continued until I had used all the bells. I just love this addition to my album.

I also made some shaker tags (with my fuse tool and all the goodies from the Christmas-land Variety pack). OMG I love these. I think by far this was the best addition to my mini. This was the first time making this type of tag, and I think it turned out so AWESOME. I just traced the bookmark tag with a sharpie, I then ran my fuse tool (against a ruler to keep my lines straight) on the inside of the sharpie, I fused 4 sides before adding all the goodies, and then sealed the tag from the top. To make the hole (so it would be closed and the glitter wouldn’t come out) I burned a hole through the sleeve with a rounded tip.

Do you enjoy making Mini Albums?

XOXO Aimee

Aimee's Tag Flip Mini Album

Happy New Year! Aimee here, and today I have a super cute little mini album for you.

1.JPG

I can’t resist a mini album! And when I saw the 12x12 “Key to the Kingdom” and “The Fourth Realm” Papers from the “December Dreams” kit I knew I was going to make a mini!

The point of my mini is just to highlight some of the magical moments from the Christmas Season. Plus, I love to print photos with my Instax Share Printer. These little minis are a great way to use those photos.

I started by cutting up the 12x12 papers into the 3x4 cards. I then paired each 3x4 card with a bookmark tag.

I laid out all the 3x4 cards with the bookmark tags. I printed my photos and placed them on the tag of choice. I then embellished each photo and bookmark tag with die cuts and little bits and pieces. I dated my photos with a date roller stamp. I also love using my tiny stapler to attach things, it’s the perfect scale.

I choose one of the cards to be the cover and embellished it. I bedazzled all my 3x4 cards with stickles {glitter glue} to make them POP!

The pom pom paper clips are great for extra embellishing. I actually cut the back of the pom pom off so it would sit flush when the album is laying down. I also stapled it to the cover so it was secure. Don’t forget the Key to the Kingdom, I added a spilt ring to the key so it could be a charm

For reals, this is the easiest project! The whole album only took me an hour to create assemble {minus the dry time for the stickles}!

Do you enjoy creating mini albums?

XOXO Aimee

Kellie's 4x4 Mini-Layout with "December Dreams"

Hello everyone! It's Kellie here to share a mini layout I created in a 4x4 mini album. These little albums are the best for documenting your memories. They can be used for one theme or many. I decided to use one for just whatever I feel like at the time - no theme, no reason, just getting creative. Which is exactly what I did this month with the NEW December Dreams kit.

I made this wreath back in about 2012 or 2013... Pretty sure it was 2012. I randomly found the photo while looking for something the other month and kept it aside knowing I would use it with this kit!

If you haven't already, subscribe! Although it’s too late for your subscription to include the “December Dreams” kit, you can still purchase most of the separate components from this kit, and each time the kits keep getting better and better, so by subscribing now you won’t miss out on future kits. The acetate sheet that comes with the kit is gold on one side and a red on the back. I mean HOW awesome right!? I've used the red side here. I fiddled with the gold but it wasn't working, and then once I turned it over, the whole thing came together.

I then layered around the photo with the die-cut shapes ephemera pack and used one of the left over strips from the card I made and shared previously. I also used one of the little pom pom paper clips, they are so soft and fluffy. I grabbed a pocket that has 4 mini squares and cut up the 12x12 pattern papers and again used some of the die-cut shapes ephemera pack with a flair button. A quick little 4x4 in the album, just because. :)

Laura's 6x8 December Dreams Layout for December Daily

Hi Everyone, it's Laura here to share a 6x8 layout I made using the December Dreams collection for my December Daily this year. One of my favorite things to incorporate is stories from past Christmases, mixed in with stories from the current year. I love having a flash from the past included in my album.

01-Laura-2018-11-27.jpg

I always start my album on Thanksgiving day, and I've found that week before December 1st to be the perfect time to tell some of these stories. This year I was inspired by the cute gingerbread die cuts in the kit to tell a story about a tradition from when I was a kid of making gingerbread houses with my mom.

02-Laura-2018-11-27.jpg

I worked with a digital version of this kit, so I played around with printing on different types of paper. For my background I printed out the snowflake personal planner page onto vellum, and the die cut gingerbread house was printed onto iridescent paper to add a bit of sparkle.

I also used past kit components to pull the page together. I used a die cut frame and a title from the Hello Beautiful Kit. I love that this collection plays together so well with December Dreams.

Thanks for looking and I hope you're having an enjoyable holiday season!

Andrea's "December Dreams" Holiday Planner Set-up

Hello there everyone! It’s Andrea here, and today I want to share with you a fun planner set-up using the new "December Dreams" collection/kit!

I absolutely love setting up my planner for the holidays and since I start my holiday season in November (because I like to include my Thanksgiving plans in with my "holidays" stuff), I decided to go ahead and set up my planner using "December Dreams" now so that I could start getting things ready for my holiday-time!

I used the A5 decorative planner pages and punched them to go in my platinum Carpe Diem planner. For the front dashboard page, I used the Sugarplum Fairy planner page and added a clear transparency on top, and between the two sheets I sandwiched some of the matching sequins that come with the "Happily Ever After" kit version of "December Dreams." I did this so I could create a fun shaker page! I love shaker pages like this for my planner! They are easy to make, and all you have to do to close everything up is just stitch around the edges. I used a zig-zag stitch on my sewing machine and some red thread. I think this dashboard came out really cute!

And to finish things off on my dashboard, I just added a little paperclip with a little label from the cut-apart sheet and some ephemera pieces (like the gingerbread man, the word "merry," and a little peppermint) to it on the bottom right corner. This just adds a cute, extra jolly detail!

For the pockets in the front of my planner, I just used different 3x4 cards from the cut-apart sheet and placed them here and there to my liking, and then I also added in some of the smaller cut-apart pieces as well as some pretty die-cuts from the ephemera pack. I added a few paperclips to keep things in place how I wanted, and also to add some more dimension and texture.

For added depth, I placed a decorative pink pom-pom paperclip at the top (from our decorative paperclips pack) and I also created a few of my own decorative paperclips by attaching some of the adorable flair that comes in the collection to some simple gold paperclips.

And for some extra glitz and glam, I added in the big glitter-snowflake that comes in the variety pack to the front bottom pocket...and I added in the little silver snowflake charm to one of the top pockets as well...so cute!

There are more decorative pom-pom paperclips as well as some of the flair paperclips that I made added here and there in my planner, marking different pages. They are all along to top and you can see from the front how they look like pretty tabs...choose one to turn to particular and important pages in my planner.

And finally, I added to the rings the beautiful gold key to the four realms that comes in our new variety pack. It looks so gorgeous and special! I added a December 25 tag from one of our cut-apart sheets to it by just threading it through the pink tassel that comes with the key and I also created a little snowflake charm dangle using a gold paperclip and one of the clear crystal snowflake beads that comes in the variety pack too!

And for a last and lovely touch, I placed the gold key transparency sheet in the back of my planner...just because I think it looks so cool and magical!

Alright, I hope you like how I setup my planner for this holiday season and that I gave you some good tips, tricks and ideas for your planner set up (or maybe for a Christmas mini album, or a December Daily)! Hope you all are having a happy holiday-time!!! Hugs and remember to live your life as a fairytale (especially during this magical time of year)!

Adeline's Halloween Planner Setup

Hi my fairy friend,

It's Adeline today for the blog, I'm happy to see you again for a bootiful post!!! As I said in my last post, Autumn is my favorite season, and I really love Halloween. I think that Andrea's Halloween themes are the best!!!! Magical and Mischievous is a good witch theme. I love the design, the colors, EVERYTHING!!! I knew this kit would be perfect for my new purple holographic planner from Kikki K, so I made my setup with it.

Magical 1.jpeg

I tried to create a girly magic halloween atmosphere, for that I decided to accentuate the effects with different items from the kit.

First I made my inside cover decor with the blue pumpkin. She is so pretty, and I added so much ephemera, like Halloween candy corn, the pretty witch...finally I added the pom-pom paper clips (I love them so much!!).

Regarding my dashboard, I decided to do it in three separate parts. For the first part I just cut my insert from a sheet of paper decorated with pretty witches. I punched it and integrated it into my planner, and it was the base of my dashboard. Its decoration is very simple - I just glued a ribbon of pom poms onto it.

For the second part of the dashboard, I have my insert with spiderweb acetate, and I chose the purple side of it. I punched it and integrated it into the planner without decorating it. This step will come at the end.

For the third part of my dashboard I chose a project life card that I cut and punched. And finally I decorated it with kit ephemera and some crystals in the colors of the kit.

And then, I came back to the second part of my dashboard, the acetate sheet, to which I added decorations suited to the project life card that was added on to it so that everything was harmonious.

Then I chose some pumpkins and the poisoned love apple that I love and the perfect silver foil words "Happy Halloween". Also I made a little cat paper clip with a super cute "Magical and Mischevious" ephemera.

I hope you enjoyed my planner set up with this bootiful kit.

Kiss from France,

Adeline
