Enjoy Life | ScrappyNerdUK (Claire) | September/October 2018

Hiya friends.

I thought I would pop on and share my layout that I created on the Facebook live last week on the Quirky Kits Facebook Group.

I chose to use black cardstock to really help my layout pop and was determined to use that hexagonal piece of patterned paper from Kaisercraft that came in the Main kit.

I sat and fussy cut the words from the other Kaisercraft paper (I love fussy cutting as it makes the kit go so much further!) and I used these around the hexagon and this doubled up as my title also.





I pulled some ephemera from the last kit to really stash bash and incorporated it with the Heidi Swapp stickers from the main kit. I added in some puffy stickers from my stash also as the colour of the hearts matched perfectly with the colours use in the layout.





I layered some ephemera and stickers both to the left of my photo and to the right. I also chose a photo with a black background to match the black cardstock that I used from the kit. I then added in some more pops of black by using some tiny word stickers (from my stash).

I think it's important to remember that a kit is only a base of where you can work from. If you have other items that work well with your layout then don't be scared to include them also. It's best to get them used up on layouts that they'll work on. Remember that there are no rules in scrapbooking.




And here is the final layout. I love how the gold foil pops against the background and I felt accomplished as that hexagonal piece of patterned paper was really a challenge for me....but I did it!!

I'll see you all here again very soon with another layout from this months kit.

Red | Guest Designer Laura Rumble | Twilight Moon Kit

Hi guys, Laura back with another guest designer layout.

I was struck by the gorgeous autumnal colours featured in the patterned papers.  What better way to show them off than with leaves and acorns?  It also meant I got to play with my new toy, a Gemini Junior.  It turns out I quite like die cutting!  I also fussy cut a few of the leaf sprigs from the Pink Fresh Mesa paper.


I based my layout on a sketch I had drawn up earlier this year.


I fixed the leaves in place with a little glue and then ran the layout through my sewing machine using a couple of different coloured threads.  My favourite part of my guest designer package was the Custom Cards - so much so that I have signed up.  I pulled a few of my favourite cards to layer behind my photo and to cut into a heart shape embellishment.


In the Pink Fresh Mesa paper there are a few pops of acid yellow that really zing amongst the other colours.  I added in some tangled thread and a few sequins from my stash in the same colour.  To finish I added a title with the bold black alphas included in the kit.


Here's the video so you can see my process


Thanks for stopping by

Sketch Sunday Sketch #3


Layout Sample:


To create the title on the page I cut the words from white card stock then applied foam tape to the back. I then arranged a mix of Custom Cards and patterned paper off cuts on my background patterned paper sheet to show behind the words before fixing the cut out cardstock over the top aided by the foam tape.




Our Perfect Memories

Hello everyone! I am here with my first layout using the September/October Quirky Kit.
Below you will find a list of all the items I used and then step by step of how I created this pretty layout.

What I used:
From the Main Kit:

  • Kaisercraft Misty Mountains Die Cut sheet
  • Kaisercraft Misty Mountains rose gold foil 12x12 sheet
  • Pink Fresh Studio Indigo Hills 2 Puffy Stickers
  • Vicki Boutin Field Notes - Collect and Document 12x12 sheet
From the Embellishment Kit:
  • Pink Fresh Studio Simple and Sweet gold puffy alpha
  • Pink Fresh Studio Indigo Hills 2 die cut foiled journaling cards
  • Pink Fresh Studio Indigo Hills 2 enamel dots
From the Lite Kit:
  • Pink Fresh Studio Indigo Hills 2 - Ridge 12x12 sheet
From the extras shop:
  • Kaisercraft Misty Mountains Die Cut pack
Here is how I created my layout...
I started off by finding a 12x12 patterned paper that matched the Kaisercraft Misty Mountains die cut sheet, so I chose the PFS Indigo Hills 2 Ridge paper. I felt the beautiful sunset ombre colours really complemented the flowers on the die cut and also the dress I am wearing in the photograph.
I then backed my photograph on the orange side of the Vicki Boutin paper from the main kit, leaving about a quarter inch border all round.
I then cut out my title from the words on the Kaisercraft Misty Mountains foiled 12x12 paper, that read Perfect Memories, and matched these up with the PFS Simple & Sweet gold puffy Alpha's from the Embellishment kit. 
After creating my title, I focused on where and how I wanted to put my journaling. I browsed through the PFS Indigo Hills 2 Journaling cards pack and and chose a navy blue and gold foiled one, to bring out some of the blues on both the die cut and backing papers. 
Once I'd written out my journaling, It was time to embellish. I used one of the puffy hearts from the Indigo Hills 2 puffy sticker pack, 2 navy enamel dots and one lilac from the same collection, and the butterflies, heart strip, and flower pieces came from the Misty Mountains die cut pack, which I purchased from the Extras store.
Here is the finished layout. I love how all these colours compliment each other perfectly. I can't wait to create my other layouts using this beautiful kit. I'm also loving all of the layouts you're sharing on the Facebook group! It great to see the wall full of colour and inspiration.
I will be back with my 2nd layout on the 24th November so be sure to look out for my sneaks in the FB group :D
Until then...Happy Scrapping xxx
