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 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.
Hi there Fairytale Club peep, Kellie from Australia here with you today to share yet another pocket page notebook layout I created. I've used the Practically Perfect kit that I can not get enough of.
With flowers, gingham and more what isn't to love!
I have a bunch of not printed photographs of flowers and I knew it was time to print a few off and use this kit. I decided on this photo taken when the family and I went on a weekend getaway in 2017.
This layout just came together and I know I may have said that for all my project recently but they truthfully did and I've been in a bit of a crafty funk lately when it comes to documenting, so this is such a nice change.
For this layout I used the gingham 12 x 12 pattern paper that I cut to size. then I got all the embellishments out and layered until I was happy with the added touch of the typewriter journalling.BAM layout complete, memories kept and in the books.
Hi there Kellie with you here today to show you a pocket page notebook layout I created using the You + Me collection that I absolutely love.
Loving the way this layout came together. I have a pocket page notebook that is mainly based on the purchases I've made, one I keep from my husband obviously, haha. This is actually a photo of a tee I brought some time ago and I still love it and it's still one of my favourites. Because of this I knew that the You + Me kit would be perfect for this layout. That rose is just stunning and as much as I really wanted to hoard it, I used it instead.
I mean honestly crafty peeps, how cute are those hearts! I started by knowing what photo I was going to use for the layout. After that it's a matter of going through the kit and often picking out my favourites and that pile can be a little high, haha and then narrowing down what matches in with the photo. Because the tee was black made it easy, what doesn't go with black? Exactly nothing, right?
Pink, red and blue/teal worked so well together and I already have another idea in mind with plenty left for another layout.
What have you created with your You + Me kit?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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
Hello Everybody, Carrie here with day 2 in my December Daily 4x6 album. I’ve used more of the lovely December Dreams Kit to tell the story of decorating our Christmas tree, and how much my daughter loves to “decorate” ; )
To start off I added the brown heart die cut directly onto my 4x6 photo along with a Santa hat from Little B. I super love how the goldfish ornament is swimming among the other ornaments, and thought he would look cute with a hat and a heart.
On the opposite page is a 3x4 photo with “OUR TREE” written in the Thicker font Happy Life, again placed directly onto the photo. Next to it is a 3x4 shaker pocket with the number 2 punched out into a circle from one of the cut apart sheets. I’ts slightly popped up using foam adheasive and layered over another circle that is only slightly larger which was punched from one of the 12x12 papers. They are attached to a 3x4 piece of transparency and I added in a few aqua and gold sequins.
To keep with the same shape on the opposite side of the shaker pocket, I added another of the larger circles punched from the same 12x12 paper. This time instead of layering it with the date I punched out the pink and green “joy” from one of the cut apart sheets. Since the circles are mounted on both sides of a 3x4 piece of transparency I decided to add some more of the same sequins into this side to complete the shaker. Next to it is another 3x4 photo of our tree.
For the final page of this spread I chose the beautiful bow paper and cut a 4x6 card from the 12x12 sheet. I added the “Mama, let’s decorate.” using the same Thickers, but this time used gold instead of rose gold. To add my journaling, I ran the blue label from one of the cut apart sheets through my typewriter and popped it up slightly using some foam paper layered over a pink tag also from the same cut apart sheet. To add just a little extra something I also added an orange eyelet to the tag. As a final bit of embellishment I placed three of the stars from the die cut pack across the 4x6 card and layered enamel stars and dots from Studio Calico Seven Paper for added dimension…..and that’s it.
Thanks so much for taking a look at today’s project and I’ll see you next time : ) Carrie
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hello everybody! Carrie here, and today I'm sharing two of my go-to ways for adding in extra photos into my October Daily using the Magical and Mischievous Kit.
The first way is definitely my most used, which is to fill up a pocket page with just photos. Here you can see that I filled up the top and bottom pockets each with 4 x 6 photos, and the middle pocket I cute in two and placed it into two 3 by 4 inch pockets.
Because I wanted to tie in more of the Magical and Mischievous Kit I also decided to add one of the journaling strips from the cut apart sheet directly onto my top photo and tuck the cute little bat from the die-cut pack just above it. I popped both up slightly with some foam dots after adding a bit of journaling with my typewriter. Easy peasy : )
The second way of adding in extra photos is to create a custom "pocket". You can do this a variety of ways, but this time I chose one of the planner inserts as my base. I just love both the text and illustration on this insert....so pretty! Once I had the base picked out I chose this cute pumpkin face heart paper and cut it down from 12x12 inches to line the back of my insert. Then I attached the two papers together using red line tape for extra strenght. Next, I used the amazing web design transparency and attached it to the backside of my insert leaving the top and insides open. I only used tape on the edge of the bottom, right, and left. This created my "pocket" with a cool transparent element. Now all that was left was to punch holes in my insert so I could add it into my album and then fill the pocket with photos. I also ended up adding in a couple journaling cards, that went with the feel I was going for, and that's it!
Thanks so much for taking a look at today's project and I'll see you next time : ) Carrie
