Water Color and Peonies with Aimee

It’s Aimee again! Today I got messy with the “Beautiful Dreamer” Kit and just had to share with you!

 I went way out of my comfort zone with this one! I mixed water colors with a fancy cut paper and machine stitching.

 I started this layout off by using a cut file from Kim Watson, you can find the file here.  I scaled down the file and cut it using the “Her Name is Aurora” 12x12 paper. You guys, this paper is so beautiful and the decision to cut it was so hard to make!

 I printed my photo to look like a polaroid picture.

 I marked where I was going to adhere my photo and I water colored around the outside of those marks.

Now, I really don’t know how to water color. I just moved some color and water on the paper and this is the final look! This is WAY out of my comfort zone.

 After it dried, I placed a heavy book on my paper and let it dry overnight {I don’t care for how the paper gets wavy after you have put paint/water on it - another reason why this is out of my comfort zone}

 I adhered my photo to my paper and then stitched around the photo several times.

I used some stickers from the sticker sheet to complement the photo, and then I placed my cut file over my photo, adhering it with 3-d foam adhesive.

 I also dated the layout with my date roller stamp

 How often do you leave your comfort zone when scrapping???

Kellie's Nap Queen Layout

TFC_KIRA_03
Hey there crafty people.  It's Kellie here with you again to share a mini layout in my pocket page notebook, using the NEW and gorgeous, Beautiful Dreamer kit.  I wanted to keep this rather simple to keep the focus on the photo and my daughters beautiful hair colour and this kit allowed for just that.
  TFC_KIRA_01For this layout I wanted to try something new, new to me.  There are so many amazing hearts in this kit and I LOVE that!  I decided to have three hearts on the pocket going down in a line, vellum in the front and the cardstock hearts backing them.
TFC_KIRA_01I then got out my old sewing machine and.................. the top one moved, ugh.  I didn't let it stop me and the other two hearts came out perfect.  The old, two out of three ain't bad.

The sticker, NAP QUEEN could not had been more perfect for this teen of mine.

I decided to use the bottom strips of the 12 x 12 pattern papers as washi tape, they are truly perfect for that use.

Lilly's Handmade "Beautiful Dreamer" Cards

Welcome back to the blog, guys!!! Today I’m sharing some fun handmade cards I made using the “Beautiful Dreamer” collection.

I love how fun and bright these handmade cards look. That cute bird is one of my favorite elements from the collection.

What I usually do to make my hand made cards is use a 8.5 x 11 piece of 110lb cardstock, cut 5x7 cards, and decorate away. Add a little stitching and some cute layering, and you got yourself a card your crafty friend would love.

One of my crafty secrets is that when I don’t have much time to craft, I tend to make a cute card because they are fast and easy to make :) Thx for stopping by guys, catch you on my next post 💗

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.

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.
