Maggie Holmes Design Team : Documented

Hello again! Today I will be sharing with you on how I used this beautiful paper called Bookmark in the Open Book collection on my layout. I absolutely love the words on this paper. So I decided to use these words: The perfect day, Beautiful & Story Teller as part of my background. 


First, I cut the background on a cardstock with my silhouette cameo. Then, I positioned the paper onto the cut lines. Next, I traced the lines so I can hand-cut the words/patterns. 

TIP > Cut slightly outside the lines that you have traced, so you can glue it at the back of your cardstock.

This is how it should look once you glue the papers down.

Here is my completed layout....

All I did was to add the chipboard shapes + the decorative ampersand clip. Love the thickness of the chipboard and dimensional look to my layout!

Citrus Twist Kits : April Reveal

Hello friends!! I'm back to share with you what I created with the April "Flight of Whimsy" Main kit & April "Adorable"Embellishment kit. I always love how all the kits in Citrus Twist Kits could match  each other so well. That's just so amazing rite? 

 This layout was pretty fun to put together. I used this beautiful paper by PinkFresh Studio and fussy cut the bird + house and also the triangles. I love how the yellow pops out with the green color. 



________________________________________ 

 And also with the main + embellishment kit, I created a project life spread. This time round, I wanted a bold + bright & whimsical spread. Love the big words spread all around the page. So inspired by all the goodies in the kit. Absolutely loved how this one turned out!



I hope you are inspired to create something with your CTK kit today! And blessed Easter wherever you are :)

Paper Issues Crop Challenge

Hello there! It is not an usual thing for me to blog during weekends but today I have 2 layout to share with you that I created for the Paper Issues Crop Challenge that is being held at their FB page. 

This urge of creating all happened after I cleaned my scrap table. My hands were itching to create... just for the fun of it! For a couple days back, I was looking at the many challenges over at Paper Issues and thought it would be fun to play along! So I took the plug and created these 2 layouts.

The first challenge that I participated was Jen Chapin's Sketch Challenge. I absolutely love the fact that I can break open Maggie Holmes Confetti collection for this challenge. This layout was pretty easy to put together & glad that I didn't take me too long to complete it as I started it just before I had to go to bed. Lol.

The next challenge, I chose Alex's Quote/Song Lyrics challenge. I chose the above quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson and loved how the photo matched the quote too! This layout I created using the Maggie Holmes Open Book collection.

By the way, did you notice that I created both my layouts with striped patterned papers? I didn't plan for that but these striped papers were screaming for me to use them. Lol.

Thanks for coming by! Enjoy your weekend!

Maggie Holmes : Project Life Week 4 & 5

I am still pretty much in love with the Project Life concept. It is such a great way to remember all the everyday memories (well almost everyday for me)! Maggie Holmes Open Book collection has so many pretty elements & thought I should showcase them on my PL spread too. 

Since last year, I decided to create bi-weekly spreads instead of weekly. It is a perfect option for a SAHM with a sticky toddler like me. I love keeping my spreads simple & clean so that I do not have to spend too much time on each spread.

It is pretty simple to decorate each card. I used the Becky Higgins Design F, so I cut the patterned papers into 4"x6" and 3"x4". Then all I did was to use the vellum shapes, floral ephemera, stickers & thickers to decorate each card. Once done, I slotted them into the designated pockets.

Here are the close-ups:

I have also used vellums on 2 of my cards with the glitter thickers to create a softer look.
