Kellie's Practically Perfect Layout

Hi there crafty people, Kellie here with you today to share a scrap layout I created using the new, Practically Perfect kit.

TFC_13I love this kit.  Every time I think Andrea can't possibly out do herself and BAM she goes and does it again.   I don't think you even have to be a fan of the movie this kit is based on.  I remember watching it as a kid, but I know I can use this kit over and over again.
TFC_13I really am happy with how this layout came together with the photo of myself and all and looking like I'm calling myself, practically perfect.  I'm not, haha, honest, but the font and music notes are just to perfect to not use.

I also managed to use a little bit of everything that comes within the kit and guys, I still have PLENTY.  So if you haven't already get onto the subscription.
TFC_13I started with a white cardstock base.  I did consider going with a pattern, but when I laid eyes on the Spoonful of Sugar acetate, I knew I had to use it.  One side gold the other blue, WINNING.  When I spotted the tag I just knew I couldn't hoard it as much as I really wanted to, because it's gorgeous.  So instead I got out all my favourite elements and added them to this layout.
TFC_13This is the end result and I coudn't be happier. 

Kellie's You + Me Bestie Love Layout

Hey there crafty peeps, Kellie here with you to share a layout I created.

TFC_YOU_AND_ME_3

So when this gorgeous kit arrived, You + Me I knew right away that anything I created would not involve my husband what so ever.  I'm not alone in the craft world where their husbands don't like their photo being taken, rarely, if at all?  I mean after doing a podcast once and attending a couple craft retreats, I found out a lot of people thought I was a single mum.  I can promise, he's real, haha.  So I knew right away this kit is going to be used for the people I love, that let me take their photo or a photo with them, haha.


TFC_YOU_AND_ME_3

This girl I love to bits.  We met online because of crafting, CRAZY right?  It's been almost 10 years now, WHOA ok, I didn't realise that, haha.

I scarp in the size of 6x8.  It can be a challenge sometimes because I want to add more, but I've tried so many sizes over my time in crafting and 6x8 I just love.  Usually with a typical white cardstock background, NOT this time!  I absolutely loved to pattern with the pink and the lined paper look that I just knew I ad to use that as the background.


TFC_YOU_AND_ME_3

I love using instax photos when I scrap?  I don't know why, maybe because of the smaller size, but the photos just GO with the style I do.  Do you pick your photo first or are you the type that picks what you will use first and then go from there?  I personally pick a photo first.

 

After I've picked the photo I always go to the die cut ephemera, then more pattern paper, strips, and stickers and layer and layer as I go.  Once I'm happy I take a happy snap so that I can then remember where everything goes.  There have been many a times that I've walked away for some reason or another and then come back and completely forget where I had things.  i do this for almost everything, project life, cards and layouts.  highly recommend it.

After all that this is the final result and I'm super happy with how it all came together and the kit just WORKED so well for my plan.

Carrie's Sunshine & Snow Project Life Spread

02132019-PL-Snow-Day-01-Final.png

Hello Everybody, Carrie here with a February spread in my Project Life album. I used the gorgeous Practically Perfect Kit and gave it a bit of a love theme for February. We’ve been coated in a bunch on snow here in Seattle the last couple weeks which is not normal, so I wanted to make sure to document some of our snow days. These photos are a little over a week old and we have so much more snow now it’s crazy. The photos from this day in particular are some of my favorites because of the snow and sunshine together, as well as my daughter playing in the yard with one of our dogs.

02132019-PL-Snow-Day-02.png

To begin this spread I quickly decided on using a pocket page of three 4x6 inch photos. I placed the photo of my daughter in the middle and cut two 4x6 inch cards from one of the 12x12 inch floral papers. The floral paper cards I added to the pockets above and below my photo. Next I decided to use two sizes of heart shaped dies and cut a bunch of hearts out of solids sections of paper from some of the planner inserts.

02132019-PL-Snow-Day-04-Final.png

I layered the die cut hearts together on the floral cardstock both above and below my photo. To give them a little dimension I used red line tape at the bottom of each heart and a thin foam adhesive at the top.

02132019-PL-Snow-Day-05-Final.png

As a final touch for this side I used the “superclifragilistic” and “expialidocious” stickers from the sticker sheet and added them with a thin foam adhesive. To give a little more interest I decided to place one on my photo and the other on the paper below.

02132019-PL-Snow-Day-06.png

On the opposite page I started out by adding the “s” and “p” in Pink Paislee Thickers to one of the 2x3 inch photos (it’s a photo of snow), to identify my daughter and our dog. I used the same pink paper as one of the heart dies to fill in the empty space of the “p” because I feel like it makes the letters easier to read and I like the look. To help tell the story of my daughter’s relationship with our dog Ponyo, I also decided to use one of my small heart punches and punched out a heart from one of the same red papers as the other hearts. I used foam adhesive and placed it in between the two initials. To finish off this little 3x4 inch pocket I added the super cute yellow pom pom paperclip from the stationery pack. I love seeing these pom poms stick out of my albums.

02132019-PL-Snow-Day-07.png

Once I had the rest of my photos placed for this 9x12 inch page I added the cute yellow quote card from one of the cut apart sheets in an empty 3x4 inch pocket. I could have left it just like that but thought that the two penguins reminded me of my daughter and Ponyo playing in the snow. Because I didn’t have a lot of space on the card I cut the smallest pair of penguins out of one of the cut apart sheets. I added them to the card with red line tape at the bottom and foam adhesive at the top. To help tell the story of the pair having fun I also placed the “yay” sticker from the sticker sheet, tucking one end under a penguin and popping up the other end with foam adhesive.

02132019-PL-Snow-Day-08.png

I knew I wanted to add journaling to the last 3x4 inch pocket so I cut a notepaper card from one of the planner inserts. Typically I’ll add journaling using my typewriter, but this time decided that the photos told enough of the story that all I wanted to write was a descriptive title and the date. I used the same Pink Paislee Thickers for my text and used the same pink paper to fill in the empty spaces in the letters. To help tie in the floral paper I decided to add the red tulip die cut from the die cut pack, again only popping up the top with foam adhesive and tucking the bottom into the text. Since I thought the sunshine and snow were so pretty together I also placed the “wow” sticker from the sticker sheet above the flower using foam adhesive…..and that’s it!

Thanks so much for taking a look at my project and I’ll see you next time : ) Carrie

Aimee's "You + Me" Layout

Hi everyone, it’s Aimee

you and me .jpg

 

You guys, I am so excited to be sharing this layout with you.

The You + Me Kit landed on my door step yesterday, and I couldn’t wait to play with it!

ACS_0644.jpg

 

And I totally went out of my comfort zone with this one. And I am loving it.

ACS_0642.jpg

 

I used the “You + Me” 12x12 sheet as my base.

 

ACS_0645.jpg

 

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

ACS_0646.jpg

 

I layered dies cuts, and created my title with pieces from the Emphemera pack

How cute is that frame from the Stationery Pack, it fit just perfectly over my photo.

I can’t wait to create more with this kit!

Do you ever get a kit that your crazy in love with?

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 Santa Visit

Hi all Aimee here, hoping you had a great Christmas and New Year! Today I’m sharing a layout I made using the “December Dreams” Kit.

I took my little dog Jager to see Santa at the Mall and of course I had to scrap it!

My layout is an 8.5 x 11 and I used an A5 dashboard from the December Dreams kit as my back ground. Who knew that an A5 dashboard fits perfectly onto an 8.5 x 11 layout!

4.jpg

I fussy cut the tree from another one of the A5 dashboards. Using some 3-d adhesive foam, I layered it over my photo. (Don’t forget that cute little deer that’s layered over the tree.) I also cut some scallops from “Land of Snowflakes” and stitched them to the top and bottom of that A5 dashboard.

2.jpg

When I was stitching the scallops on to my cardstock, I also stitched on a snowflake and “ticket” from the die cut pack for fun. I also used 3-d foam adhesive to pop them up and layer them on top of my photo.

Next I took “Merry” + “Christmas,” and, using more 3-d foam adhesive, I placed these die cut words at the top of my page.

To finish off my layout I used a date roller stamp to date the visit to Santa.

Do you take your pets to see Santa?

XOXO Aimee

Aimee's Disney "December Dreams" Layout

Hey all Aimee here on the eve x2 of Christmas Eve, Say What? Really it’s a thing!

Anyways, I am throwin’ it back today with a Christmas layout using the “December Dreams” kit.

This photo of my husband and I was taken at Disneyland in 2009. Look how skinny he was!

We started dating in 2009, so at that time he really didn’t say no to Disneyland. I remember dragging him to Disneyland the week of Thanksgiving that year. I think he about killed me. But I’m so happy I have these photos and memories.

I really went out of my comfort zone with this layout. I rarely use such a busy background for my layouts.

For my 8.5 x 11 layout, I started off my trimming down the clear acetate sheet “You Have the Key” to fit inside my white cardstock. Next I used one of the A5 dashboards to give my layout a nice pop of red.

3.jpg

I layered some of the die cuts with 3-d adhesive foam, in different thicknesses at the bottom left corner of my page. For another added affect, I added some red eye lash thread amongst my die cuts. I used my tiny stapler to attach the thread to my layout.

And don’t forget the tiny die cut stars that I stapled to the top left side of my layout!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by the blog today, I’m sure you have a ton of things to get done before the BIG day next week.

Do you have all your shopping, decorating, crafting done?

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. :)
