Laura's October Daily

Hello everyone, it's Laura here to share some pages from my October Daily project that I've been working on. I've been having some health challenges this month, and one of the ways I've simplified my scrapbooking is by downsizing. I'm using a 4x4 mini album, and I love that Andrea's kit works for this size too.

To start the month, I folded down one of the calendar dividers and cut a slit in the side so it could fold up into my album. The smaller planner divider size works well in 4x4 albums this way.

I've been especially enjoying using the die cut packs that came with the kit. Sprinkled throughout my album, they give the whole thing consistency. I also like using the B side of the planner pages as simple patterns for journaling or backgrounds.

On this page I've used one of the planner dividers, cut it down, and used the lines for journaling about a special trip to the pumpkin patch. I also love how the pompom paperclip peeks through from the next page. Those might be my favorite part of the whole kit! For me, albums this size are a great chance to play with layers and pages outside the page protector.

Thanks to Andrea for creating such a versatile and beautiful October kit! And I hope you all are having a wonderful October!

Kat's Halloween Banner

Hello Spooky Friends!

Kat again! Bringing you my third project using the “Magical and Mischievous” collection. It’s been soo much fun playing with this super cute collection and I’m sad my short residency has come to an end, BUT I’ve had so much fun with you all! Ok ok enough chatter! Lol! Are you ready?! (*que drumroll) for my final project I decided to create a banner!

image1.jpg

OMG! I adore how it turned out! Squuuuueeeeee isn’t it the cutest?! I seriously went ham with the ephemera, but I just love how it looks! For each pendant I created a little cluster of Pastelloween heaven.

I used chipboard as the base of my pendants to create a strong and sturdy surface. I cut out pendants from each of the papers from the collection and sewed around the edges with black thread prior to gluing them to my boards.

I paired the collection with some paper roses, black spiderwebs, and black doilies. By using these elements along with the sewing, it adds more whimsy to the finished piece and creates a variation in textures.

I used a combination of foam squares and liquid adhesive to adhere all my elements to my pendants. After everything dried, I hole punched my pendants and strung it on some black and gold twine.

To create my clusters, I used a combination of all the elements from the “Magical and Mischievous” including the oh so cute flare buttons! I made sure each pendant had similar touches to create cohesion throughout my entire project. As you can see, each pendant has a button and some fun foil ephemera pieces.

Don’t be afraid to trim down or fussy cut some of the elements of the collection to create your own shapes and modifications to fit your project. I fussy cut several of the journaling card to create large focal pieces for my banner (the owl as an example). Thank you so much for graciously having me as your guest inspirer for the spookiest time of the year. I hope you all have a very fun and safe Halloween. Stay Spooky cuties!

Solange's Magical and Mischievous Gift Wrapping

Hey guys! Solange here to show you a fun and unique way to wrap gifts using the “Magical and Mischievous” kit.

All you’ll need for this project is your gift and the kit, that’s it ! Easy, fun and super cute way to send someone a present.

image3.jpg

To start, wrap your gift with a 12x12 patterned paper of your choice then just have fun decorating using the ephemera pieces and fussy cutting images from the papers or dashboards like I did!

I always try to embellish the gift using the same images that are in the paper in a bigger scale so I fussy cut the spooky owl from one of the dashboards to match the background, giving it a fun cohesive look!

You can also add ribbons, trims and tassels to make it even more fun!

I hope you got some inspiration and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create!

Kat's Halloween Flipbook

Hello Spooky Friends!

It’s Kat, and I am bringing you my second project as guest designer for the month of October. My focus has been creating projects that I will cherish for years to come. For my second project I have created a flipbook of sorts that I will be filling up with Halloween memories.

For the cover I choose this super spooky cute journaling card and layered it with some fun ephemera from the “Magical and Mischievous” collection. I used a flare button as a clasp to keep my flipbook closed with some twine.

Sometimes when we memory-keep, we can quickly run out of space to store all our treasures. I decided to make a smaller scaled project that would be easy to store. I trimmed my base to 5x5 squares for a total of 5 squares and adhered them together using 1x5 inch slips of paper. I then choose some of my favorite prints and trimmed them to 4 ½ inch squares and adhered them to my base for a total of 9.

After adhering all the Spooktacular papers I chose ephemera that would compliment each square. Layering and creating clusters allow each little square to come to life.

For most of the squares I left large areas to go back and add my pictures from Halloween day. I made sure to only adhere the edges of the ephemera to allow me to slip the pictures in and drape the ephemera over the pictures. Some squares I made into decorative pieces to tell the story of my album flipbook.

For the ephemera I mostly used the colorful and gorgeous images from the “Magical and Mischievous” collection but I also I sprinkled some of the fun foiled phrases. I just love how the “Happy Halloween” phrase is the perfect size for this flipbook.

When the flipbook is completely opened it just shows how super cute and fun it is! I can’t wait to fill it up with some cute memories from my Halloween. I hope you also create your very own “Magical and Mischievous” Halloween album flipbook. The perfect way to display all your favorite memories. Stay Spooky cuties!

Aimee's Halloween Layout

Hey all, it’s Aimee!

Are you a planner girl or a scrap girl? I am 100% a scrap girl, but I love planners. But really I’m just a paper lover. Today I’m sharing a mix of both worlds, using the “Magical And Mischievous” Happily Ever After kit!

I used the “October Calendar” A5 divider as my focal point for my scrapbook layout. Say What? That’s right. I used an A5 divider on my layout. I even got to play around with my stamps, as if I was a planner girl.

I first stamped the dates on the A5 divider. I then matted my photo with another A5 divider, the super cute purple ledger paper.

I added some foam adhesive to the back of the matted photo and adhered it over the calendar, just so you could see some of the dates.

I really wanted to use one of those pom-pom paper clips, but they are a bit puffy for a scrapbook layout. No problem, I just trimmed the back of the pom-pom to make it lay flat on my layout. I then slipped the “Magical and Mischievous” banner under the paper clip {I first added a bit of adhesive to the back} and then stapled the paper clip in place.

I journaled on some plain cardstock with my typewriter. I made sure there was enough space between each line/sentence so I could cut them a part. Once I had cut my journaling a part, I adhered it to my layout. I then used foam adhesive to adhere the candy and pumpkin die cuts.

And to finish off my layout with a little pizzazz, I faux stitched around the A5 divider with a white gel pen.

Do you ever use supplies that weren’t intended for scrapbooking/planning?

XOXO Aimee

Kellie's 4x4 Mini Album Mini Layout

Hello everyone, it's Kellie here to share a mini layout I created in a 4x4 mini album using the Magical and Mischievous collection.  These little albums are the best for documenting your memories.  They can be used for the one theme or many.  I decided that since my girls are getting older I would use one to document all their book week dress up days.

2018-10-11 13.18.41

We don't celebrate Halloween in Australia, not like it's celebrated in the USA.  But my girls once a year have book week where they get to dress up as a book character. It's so much fun to dress them up and see how excited they are and now that I only have one of three daughters doing it, as one daughters has finished her schooling and the other started high school where they no longer take part in dress ups.  So I thought it was time to have them all in the one place, like a mini album.

2018-10-11 13.18.48

Do you know what I love about the Magical and Mischievous kit?  EVERYTHING.  The acetate sheet that comes with the kit is silver on one side and a purple on the back.  I used the purple as a backing the this little layout of my girls dressed up day from a few years back.  Harry Potter and a witch, the perfect match.

2018-10-11 13.24.23

I then layered around the instax photo with the die-cut shapes ephemera pack and used some left over strips from the card I made and shared previously strips.  I also used one of the little pom pom paper clips, HOW stickin CUTE are they?  I'm trying not to hoard the rest of the three from the packet of four.


2018-10-11 13.19.05

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.

Kat's Halloween Shadow Box

Hello Spooky Friends!

My name is Kat, and I am the guest designer for the month of October. I am so excited to share with you the awesome and spooky cute crafts I have created using the “Magical and Mischievous” collection. The first project I wanted to conjure was a shadow box/memory keeping box.

IMG_7541.jpg

I adore shadow boxes because they are tiny time capsules that capture your work of art and simultaneously displays it in a bootiful fashion. For this shadow box I wanted to merge scrapbooking with it as well.

I love this ghoulish picture of my Wolfie and I, and I really wanted to capture the magic of it and preserve it for years to come. The “Magical and Mischievous” collection paired so beautifully with it and showcased the whimsy of this moment.

I started off with a 6x6 shadowbox (you can purchase them at any hobby store) and cut out a square of my favorite patterned paper, the super spooky cute pumpkin pail with sweet treats. I glued this to the backboard of the frame. I printed out the photo 2 ½ x 3 ½ and added 6 layers of foam squares to give it dimension. Tilting your image gives it even more whimsy.

I then picked some ephemera pieces from the collection, two candies, a lollipop, the black bat, and the Halloween word. I propped these up with 6 layered foam squares cut to size. This allowed all my pieces to be the same dimensional size. I paired the collection with some paper roses to finish off the inside of the memory shadow box.

Finally, for the exterior of the box I added some ruffled trim in blush to complete my Spooktacular memory shadow box. I added the trim using hot glue. Incorporating fun elements, such as trim, gives your projects textures that bring it life.

I hope you also create your very own “Magical and Mischievous” memory shadowbox this Halloween season. Bring a little spooky cute into your crafty space or office desk. Stay spooky cuties!

Kellie's 6x8 Halloween Layout

2018-10-10 17.18.01

Hi all, Kellie here with you again this month to share a layout I created using the NEW kit, Magical and Mischievous.  I started in paper crafts only scrapbooking, then moved to cardmaking and then back to scrapbooking and pocket page albums.  I love everything paper crafts.  Now let me show you the layout I created.

2018-10-10 17.20.55

I like to create layout in the size 6x8.  It's a size I tried when a friend of mine, Emma, showed me her amazing work and I just loved the size.  I've always found 12x12 a little too big for me, while 9x12 isn't overly large, but 6x8 is just perfect.  I've used a instax photo from a snap chat photo I took of myself around this time last year.  It fitted in perfectly with this kit as we don't celebrate Halloween down here in Australia.  Although even that wont stop me from creating a few more layouts with this kit.

2018-10-10 17.17.42-1
Starting with a plain white cardstock I love to layer when creating a back drop. So I grabbed the pattern paper to create a background.  It's either I create a background or plain white space, one extreme to the next when it comes to my style sometimes.

2018-10-10 17.15.06I then grabbed out the ephemera die cuts and layered up.  This is my FAVOURITE part when it comes to creating a layout.  Sometimes I have to stop myself as I just want to add it all.  I'm really happy with the final result and the way the layout turned out.  It gave me the itch to create even more layouts again.

2018-10-10 17.17.52

Want a little tip?  You might even do this yourself.  Often when creating anything I lay everything out, move things around till I'm happy with it.  Then of course you have to stick it all down, which means taking it all off.  Now this is where I can forget what went where, get distracted, walk away and come back and think, ugh where did it all go?  I take a quick snap on my phone and then I have a reference.  This also works well when you can't decide should that pumpkin go there or the black cat?  Take a snap and you'll get your answer.
