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.


TFC_MAY_02

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.

Kellie's Pocket Page Notebook Perfect Flowers

2019-02-24 13.47.25

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.


2019-02-24 13.47.25

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.

Kellie's Pocket Page Notebook Tee Love Layout

2019-02-24 13.50.52

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.


2019-02-24 13.50.52

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.

2019-02-24 13.50.52

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?


2019-02-24 13.50.52

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?

Aimee's Floral Wreath Layout

Hey everyone, Aimee here. Today I am sharing another one of my favorite “GO TO” layouts.

2-27-19.jpg

 

So, I call this a circle wreath. I don’t even know if that makes sense, but it does to me.

Basically, it’s a circle, that I cover with die-cut flowers so then it becomes a wreath!

ACS_0613.jpg

 

I started had already gone through the ephemera pack and pulled out all the flowers bows and hearts. I then traced a circle on to my cardstock, I just use a cereal bowl from my kitchen.

ACS_0614.jpg

I start laying the die-cuts over my penciled circle. While fussing with the die-cuts I decided that I wanted some to over lap my photo.

ACS_0615.jpg

 

I adhered the big rose first with a tape runner directly to the cardstock. I then work my way around the circle, adhering some die-cuts with 3-d foam adhesive, and some with a tape runner.

ACS_0617.jpg

 

Once most my die-cuts are adhered I adhere my photo with some 3-d foam adhesive. I was able to tuck the photo under the daisy, and I added the blue flower, it has some extra foam to lift it higher of the page.

 

ACS_0618.jpg

Before I adhered the photo to the cardstock, I stapled the bow to my photo and added the word sticker and heart (with 3-d foam).

ACS_0619.jpg

 

I then decided that the layout needed more “POP” so I decided to “faux” stitch with a black marker around the inside and outside of the wreath.

ACS_0620.jpg

 

I used more stickers on my photo and cardstock. I then splattered painted some black glaze onto my layout for a final touch, but not before I dated the layout (when I date the layout, I mean the day the photo was taken. Not the day I made the layout) with my roller date stamp!

What is your favorite “Go To” layout?

 

 

XOXO, Aimee
