Aimee's "Eat Sleep Scrap Repeat" Layout

Hi everyone, it’s Aimee! It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. But I am so excited to be back and sharing this layout with you, using the brand new kit Beautiful Dreamer

So basically just scrap lifted this page from Paige Evans! I knew this cut file would look so awesome with the Beautiful Dreamer Kit!

To create this page, I started off using a cut file from Paige Evans. You can find the EAT SLEEP SCARP REPEAT cut file here.

I cut the it using plain white cardstock, I then used 7 different papers from the BD kit. Actually, I just used 4 different sheets that are double sided!

I separated the cut file and cut EER + LAT from “Spring Dream”, APE + SRA from “Her name is Aurora” TSP from” Beautiful Dreamer” and heart CE + EP from “Believe”.

 I backed the cut file and then placed all the letters inside the cut file. I then ran the whole cut file threw my sewing machine for a bit more dimension.

I used “Flora Fauna, and Merryweather” 12x12 as my base. I used 3-d foam adhesive to “POP” the cut file off the page. I used a border punch to punch the bottom of “Make it Pink, Make it Blue”.


I used a square instax photo for my layout. I layered it with a pink frame from the Variety pack, and used mini staples to secure it in place. I also layered the castle die-cut and a vellum butterfly die cut from the Variety pack over my photo. 

To finish off the layout I layered the blue bird and yellow butterfly from the Floral Emphemera kit under the cut file for dimension.

I love how the 12x12 “Flora Fauna, and Merryweather” paper helps give the layout depth and dimension with the faux paint and handwriting. It makes all the layers POP! 

Do you ever take advantage of the base papers design and incorporate it into your design? 

Thanks for stopping by, 

XOXO Aimee

Kellie's Pocket Page Notebook Dreamer Layout

TFC_MAY_02

Hi there Fairytale Club peeps, Kellie here with you today to share a mini layout I create in my smaller pocket page notebook.  I think if you've been following along here and would had noticed I have a thing for this style of crafting, FUN!

For this layout I've used the NEW Beautiful Dreamer kit, that is honestly just a dream to be able to create with.

My eldest has started taking photos again.  She's had an eye when it comes to photography and I benefit, because her favourite or only real subject that she can have on hand are her sisters, WIN for me.

Before this kit even arrived on my door step and I was checking the delivery update daily.....  Come on, I know I'm not the only one that stalks their Fairytale Kit right?  I already had plans in my head on what I wanted to create and these photographs were top of the list.

Did you see that this month there is something new?  The chipboard alpha's!  Are they not dreamy?  Confession time, I used the "q" as a "b", honestly it was a mistake and once I realised it didn't bother me as it just worked. I decided to keep these layout's pretty simple.  I'm loving the sentiments within the sticker sheet this month.


TFC_MAY_02

To do the pocket I got out my trusty fuse tool and once I was happy with where my photo was placed that I've gone back and front, I fused around it with a metal ruler.  Added sequins in and then fused it up.  BAM, done.  Sounds simple right?  You have no idea the amount of sequins I get everywhere, haha.  But the result is just too good not to lose or wear a few sequins.

i didn't want to sew straight into the pocket page paper.  So I decided to stick down the strips of paper onto a spare bit of cardstock, sew with my sewing machine, trim up and then stuck it down into my pocket page notebook.  This works really well for those hard to get to areas with your machine.

There you have it!  I have another layout coming next week that I can't wait to share with you all.  In the meantime if you haven't signed up for your kit yet, you can do so, HERE.

I die cut the heart garland/wreath with my silhouette and filled it with ALL the papers in the collection.

"You + Me" Collection Full Reveal!!!

Hello there! It's Andrea here, and today I want to share with you a super special new announcement and a new reveal! Are you ready?! Here we go... I have a new collection coming out for Valentine's Day, in collaboration with Johanna Parker! Yay! I'm super excited for this new collection and for the opportunity to collaborate with such a talented, fellow designer! The new collection is called "You + Me," and it is filled with some really beautiful, vintage-inspired designs.

If any of you are familiar with Johanna Parker, you know that she is famous for her iconic vintage holiday decor -- you may have seen some of her seasonal decorations just this last Halloween and Christmas at big stores such as HomeGoods, TJ Maxx, or Marshalls or even at beautiful specialty boutiques like Roger's Gardens. I started collecting her home decor pieces a couple of years ago and I love putting them out for the holidays to add that special vintage whimsy to my house! I especially love her Halloween goodies and her super iconic little black, grinning cat that she does!Anyhow, when I heard she was interested in collaborating with other artists, I jumped at the chance to work with her, and I'm so exciting to introduce the first of hopefully several collaborative efforts from the two of us!

This new collection, aptly named "You + Me" is an Andrea Bethke and Johanna Parker design effort, and because Johanna and I share a love of vintage goodies and all things whimsical and adorable, we worked together to make something really one of a kind and special for all you guys! Now, this collection is a little different than my regular fair...it is not fairytale inspired and technically it’s not under The Fairytale Club heading, but it's still from me to you, and therefore filled with my style and magic PLUS all of Johanna's as well! This was such a fun combination of both of our styles...there is a little of her classic imagery and design, a little of my pixie dusted artistry and charm, and some really cool ideas that we came up with together! I think you are going to love it!

So, let's get started at looking at everything in this new and amazing collection which, may I just add, is absolutely perfect for all your Valentine's Day paper-crafting needs! First, I want to talk to you about the 12x12 patterned paper.  The color scheme is a beautiful, traditional pink and red mixed with black and white and a fun splash of aqua. And the patterns in "You + Me" are a combination of the traditional Valentine's Day hearts and flowers plus fun, fresh and trendy imagery like unicorns, balloons, and even some dancing cats and dogs!

The first paper here, “You’re Magical,” is one of my favorites from this collection.  Can you guess why?  Could it be the Valentine unicorns?!  Why yes, yes it could be.  I am in LOVE with the unicorn, heart, and shooting star pattern, and I also love the ledger print on the other side that is being slowly overtaken by a rising tide of oh so pretty pink!

01 - You're Magical.jpg

The next paper, “Sweetheart,” is aptly named, as it has a lovely and romantic pattern of hearts of various shapes and designs on one side, and a repeating brush script word pattern on the other reading, “xoxo always sweetie.”  I love the use of the traditional Valentine’s Day pinks and reds in this paper!

02 - Sweetheart.jpg

The next pattern, “Luv U,” is another one of my favorites as the front makes use of a very bold, black background behind a confetti shower of different-colored hearts and small pink dots.  And on the other side is a fantastic, fun and playful pattern of balloons spelling out L U V in the main colors of this collection - pink, red, and aqua.

03 - Luv U.jpg

The next paper, “Darling,” is another one that I adore!  The front side is a gorgeous pattern of pink roses on a striking, black background, while on the other side is a large black and white polka dot pattern. I love a good polka dot!

04 - Darling.jpg

This next pattern is so special! It i called "Over the Moon" and it is aptly named! It has a super cute smiling crescent moon with a heart and arrows on one side of the 12x12 and on the other is a very cool happy heart face pattern with various hearts and various fun expressions!

05 - Over the Moon 4 U.jpg

This next pattern is called "You + Me" and it may be my absolute favorite in the collection...although I have so many! This patterned paper is named for the collection itself and on the front of the 12x12 we have a fantastic and beautiful multi-pattern of various Valentine's Day images...there is a cute little boy and girl in love, some fun conversation hearts, the number 14, and some choice happy heart day words like "kiss me", "cute", "hey sweetie", "xoxo", and of course "happy Valentine's day"! On the opposite side of the page is a simple but versatile aqua geometric. 

Here we have a really amazing patterned paper called "You're My Favorite" which is also ridiculously adorable! On the front of the page we have a super cute dancing cat and dog pattern...they are clearly celebrating Valentine's Day together! And on the back there is a sweet vintage pink and red pattern that kinda reminds me of stars.

And then there are our cut-apart sheets... I always love a good cut-apart sheet! This first one is called "Be Mine" and it is filled with fun goodies to cut out and use for your scrapbooking, planning, cardmaking, home decor...really any of your papercrafting needs! We have 3x4's and 2x2's and tags one one side and on the other is a great aqua monochrome heart pattern. I have a lot of favorites in this cut-apart sheet...but I think I am especially smitten with the cute dancing kitty card and the fabulous BINGO piece!

08 - Be Mine.jpg

And finally, our last 12x12 is another cut-apart sheet called "xoxo" and it is just chock-ful of 3x4's! I think my faves are the "xoxo" girl and boy cards, the "happy valentine's day" kitty, the crescent moon and the lovebirds! Oh...I love the "You + Me" card too! Okay, okay...I may love them all...lol! And on the back of the 12x12 is a simple and versatile black and white stripe which is just bold and beautiful!

Alright, now that we have gone over the patterned papers in the collection, I think we should switch gears and take a look at the gorgeous embellishments that come in "You + Me"...such as our ephemera pack.  I love ephemera, don't you?! It is just so great for so many things!  And this ephemera pack is spectacular!  It is filled with love and magic and vintage whimsy!  There are tons of hearts -- heart faces, conversation hearts, lacey hearts, love-y hearts, other decorative hearts...both big and small!  We definitely have you covered in the heart department! And there are so many other beautiful die-cuts in this epherma pack that you are just going to love!  I especially love the big-eyed pink haired girl with the little Valentine hat, the beautiful rose, and the two adorable lady bugs!

And next, let's talk about the sweet sticker sheet that comes in the "You + Me" collection.  We have several conversation hearts that say things like "sweet", "dear" and "be mine". There are other hearts of course and an arrow too. And we also have little label words and  brushscript words that say things like "huuugs" and "always" and "love". PLUS there are some really amazing postage stamp sitckers which are super cool and perfect to place on your Valentine's Day card envelopes! I think my fave though might be that adorable and simple little envelope sticker...it's just too cute!

And next is our stationary pack. I love this pack of goodies!  It has some really amazing pieces in it that are so cool and intricate! I love the Valentine's Day cards like the lovebirds card with the scallop, the "You + Me" boy and girl card, and the "happy Valentine's Day" card with the smiley black cat! I also love the cute decorative tags, especially the cut out "xoxo" one! But my favorite thing in the pack might bee the fabulous little picture frames which are just perfect for a photo of you and the one you love!

Alright, now that we have looked at all the 12x12 patterned papers in the collection, and all the different embellishments in the collection, aren't we missing something?...oh, that's right, the ridiculously beautiful and adorable and magical decorative planner pages that come in the collection! These come in a 6x8.25 size, perfect for a planner, but they can also be used for a mini album, a traditional scrapbook, a banner, some cards, to frame and put up as decoration...really, I have seen our customers use these gorgeous pages for so many things, and they always look fabulous! 

First, let's look at this planner page with the quote on it "I will love you..." It reads, "I will love you my dear and oh so sweet, sweetheart, forever and always, and then some more after that!" I love that!  It is so true and so beautiful! And it's visually pleasing too as a pretty, monochromatic aqua on aqua. And on the other side of the page is a lovely pink rose, and it says "always".

Next we have a planner page that is definitely a favorite of mine!  I just love that dancing, vintage kitty and puppy (so iconic of JP by the way)! And on the other side, a pretty pink and red quote that says "will you be mine, sweet Valentine?".

This next page is anothe one of my favorites! I love both sides so much!  The lovebirds are so sweet! And on the other side is our big and bright eyed Valentine girl...and she is covered in hearts -- on her hat, on her collar, her dress, her cheek and even in her eyes!  She is in love for sure!

The next planner page has a wide-eyed kitty completely decked out for Valentine’s Day, with a heart collar, hearts on her back and belly, and sporting a “Happy Valentine’s Day!” message. And hearts for eyes, too! And on the other side is the beautiful script word “Love” in front of a heart.

This next planner page is another one of my favorites because it features two extremely cute lady bugs in the JP style with the “Be Mine” Valentine’s Day message on one side and a framed heart face with an awesome black and white stripe background on the other.

I love this next planner page because of the amazing moon with heart and arrows graphic on the one side. The moon is one of my favorite designs in this collection and is perfectly iconic of the JP style. The other side is also great for the “February 14th” graphic.

Now, I know I say this about a lot of the paper, but this next planner might actually be my favorite. I love the Valentine’s Day girl and boy in love sooo much, and this design is also the inspiration for the title of the collection - “You + Me.” And the back with its calendar is both beautiful and functional. I love it!

And finally we have the fabulous L U V balloons planner page with the amazing red unicorn on the other side.
