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.
For 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.
I 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.
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!
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 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 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,
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.
Hello Everybody, Carrie here with a fun Galentine’s project I made for one of my girlfriends using the Practically Perfect Kit. I To create the base of my folio I followed the tutorial Serena Bee shared on her YouTube channel back in December, and it couldn’t have been more easy and fun to put together. I’ll link her tutorial HERE.
Following Serena’s tutorial I created the base of my folio using a 6x12 inch piece of this lovely fan looking 12x12 inch paper, and then added pink satin ribbon from my stash as my closure. To decorate the front I used this large red heart from the stationery pack, and popped it up with some foam adhesive. To add a little more sparkle I covered the entire front of the heart with Wink of Stella and added two red pearl dots from my stash.
This mini folio folds into four 3x4 inch pockets. For the first pocket I added the SUPERCALIFRAGILISTIC square from one of the cut apart sheets and cut down the right side just slightly so make room for the penguin from the die cut pack. I popped them both up with foam adhesive and attached them to the bottom of the first pocket. I also added two small light purple pieces of bling from my stash to this little grouping. To fill this pocket I chose the “Wonder” tag with the gorgeous pink tassel from the stationery pack, and also tucked in the Mary figure from the die cut pack. To add the pink eyelet onto the tag I simply removed the tassel, placed the eyelet, and then added the tassel back on.
For the second pocket I popped up the carousel from the die cut pack towards the bottom flap of the pocket making sure the top portion of the die cut hung over the edge of the flap for interest. I also added a little sparkle with four yellow pieces of bling from my stash. Inside the pocket I placed the frame from the stationery pack. To make it into a frame, I hand cut out the image of Mary from the inside and then placed my own photo behind it. There are four instax photos total layered in this pocket so my girlfriend can use them or store them here. To embellish the frame a little more I placed the bow flair towards the top using red line tape.
For the next pocket I decided to use the bow and “magic” both from the die cut pack. I first added the bow using foam adhesive, and then layered the “magic” under it which is also popped up. I chose another light purple piece of bling from my stash to dot the “i”, and called it good for the bottom portion. To fill the pocket, I used the purple carousel horse card from one of the cut apart sheets, and added one of my favorite tea bags in front of it.
This last pocket is one of my favorites because it holds a simple but pretty necklace. I chose the umbrella bird from the die cut pack to embellish the bottom of the pocket and added a single yellow piece of bling to the bird’s tale. Inside the pocket I placed the purple “magic” tag from the stationery pack after adding the pink eyelet and necklace. To hold the necklace in place as much as possible I used a strip of washi from my stash and attached it to the back of the tag…..and that’s it for this project. Below you can see everything taken out of the pockets. It actually holds quite a bit. In my option, the only thing missing is a movie to watch while you drink your tea, eat your chocolate, and use your face mask, lol.
I hop you enjoyed this project share, and I’ll see you next time : ) Carrie
Hello Everybody, Carrie here with my first all digital Project Life layout. I used the amazing Digital version of the Practically Perfect Kit. I super LOVE this kit. Also, I think it’s worth mentioning that you can re-create this same layout using only the physical kit. The only elements not in the physical kit which I used are my photos, the font for my journaling, and a drop shadow on some of the elements (which you could replace with foam adhesive).
To begin my first layout I created a square grid in Photoshop with the amount of “pockets” you see above. This step isn’t necessary because I know you can purchased digital grids specifically for pocket page scrapbooking. Becky Higgins has an app with multiple choices, and many digital scrapbook shops such as The Lilypad also have designers that sell them.
Anyways, once I had all my photos placed, I chose a portion of the gorgeous 12x12 inch floral patterned paper to fill the 4x6 inch pocket on the left. I knew I wanted my journaling to go there so I added the 4 rectangle journaling spots from the stationery pack and centered them all together. Since my journaling needed a bit more space, I decided to enlarge them all as well as stretch them a bit taller. I used a free font called “1942 report” and added my journaling in each of the rectangles. To give the rectangle journal spots a bit more depth I added a slight drop shadow to each. To finish off this card I added two of the pink flowers from the ephemera pack, enlarging the smallest until it was the size I wanted. To add a little interest I layered them behind and over some of the journaling with the same slight drop shadow.
For the next “pocket” I chose to add the purple 3x4 inch journal card that says “Never loose your childlike sense of Wonder,” from one of the cut apart sheets. I thought this was perfect since it was just above the photo of my daughter playing. Andrea’s handwriting is so dreamy, I just love it.
At this point I knew I needed to add in more black since I had a mostly black photo to help balance, so I placed a portion of the 12x12 inch black and white patterned paper of Mary flying while holding her umbrella in the upper right 3x4 inch “pocket”. Originally I was going to add the black image of Mary with her umbrella from the ephemera pack on this card since the designs matched, but when I accidentally dropped her on the photo next to it with the moon I knew it belonged there instead. lol. I added the same slight drop shadow to her so it helped the effect of her flying over the moon…..and that’s it for this layout.
For my next layout I knew I wanted to highlight the photo I took of the supermoon eclipse, so I decided to do a full page photo. Above you can see the page as a square but that’s just so you can get a good look at what I added from the kit. At the top of this post you’ll see that it’s around 5 inches wide and 12 inches tall as it sits next to the previous layout.
Okay, so for this layout I chose to try out adding some of the flowers from the ephemera pack around the right and left sides of the moon. Originally I just kind of placed them where ever, and then once I thought I might actually like them I decided to go for it and created a clipping mask circle in the same size as the moon. I made sure the clipping mask circle was layered perfectly over the moon. Once I had all the flowers placed where I wanted them, I selected the clipping mask and used it’s shape to cut the excess from the flowers that overlapped the moon. This made the flowers look like they were behind the moon instead of layered over the top. As you can see I chose not to do so with the one pink flower that corresponds to the layout on the opposite page. I added the same slight drop shadow to the flowers as a final effect to make them look like they were hovering over the moon more.
The last thing I added was the text in white with the same “1942 report” font just below the moon that states the date and the type of moon it was.
The photo at the top of this post is how the 12x12 inch pocket page layout looks next to the 5x12 inch layout when I send it off to the printer. I will have it all printed together like this in the size 12x18 inches. So it will basically look the same once I have it printed, then cut the two layouts apart and place them in 12x12 and 6x12 inch page protectors inside my album. I hope that makes sense. Let me know if you have any questions, and thanks so much for taking a look at my project. See ya next time : ) Carrie
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.
Ok 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.
What 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.
To 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!
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)!
