Maggie Holmes Design Team : Birthday Cards

Today, I would love to share with you cards that I created with the beautiful Confetti collection. Cards are pretty easy to put together. Once you have a 'sketch' in your mind or on paper, the design will come naturally as you put all the elements together. 

The cards I put together are pretty similar to each other. Balloon on the left & title/sentiment in the middle. The only thing I did was to use different elements so the cards look different but still similar in a way. The first card certainly was the initial idea that led me to create the second & the third card.

Citrus Twist Kits : Beach Adventure Mini Album

Hello there!! Today I'm sharing with you a mini album I created with the July Scrapbook Main kit + Sprinkles kit + my stamps that I created for Citrus Twist Kits too.

This 5"x7" mini album is pretty easy to put together. Firstly I cut 11 pieces of white cardstock into 5"x7" as the album base. Then, I cut the patterned papers slightly smaller than the base & pasted them on. Once I've decided with all the position of my papers & photos in the respective pages, I begun to work with the composition of each page. I kept each page almost the same look so they look cohesive.  I played around with the embellishments like stickers, stamps, brads & acrylic pieces that you can find in the kits. Finally, bind the pages together with a ring.

PinkFresh Studio Design Team : July Kit

Hello again! I'm here to share with you a card + a layout featuring the July kit. I am always so happy with all the pretty little things that I get each month in the kit. This month's kit is another fantastic one!

This card is really fun to create. I started with stamping (stamps by Evelin Designs) on the card base & coloured each element with water-colour paint. Once that is dried, I adhered vellum across the card. Finished off with washi tape at the top of the vellum, Acrylic 'Hooray' + Gold studio puffs and heart wood veneer with a purple bling!

I enjoy using washi tape as my background. I started the tape from the middle and slowly worked my way to the top and bottom. Once I'm done with that, I adhered the two ombre tags below the photos, added titles. And lastly, completed the layout with heart wood veneers with blings. Always love a fast layout!

Thank you for coming by and I hope these projects will inspire to grab your kit and start creating!

Happy Crafting!

Maggie Holmes Design Team : Together

I really enjoy using medium on my layout whenever I can. This time, I took some time to play with my Loew Cornell Paint with the intention to create a painted border on the background. I wanted to use paint to give a subtle look to the busy background on my layout too. 

Let me briefly explain my creative process...

1. First, you will need a 6"x6" paper to be placed in the middle of your layout. 
2. Use a pencil to lightly mark around the paper. 
3. Then, use some gesso to paint the sides of your marking. It doesn't have to be neat lines. The reason to use gesso is because it will help to bring out the actual color of your water-colour paint. 
4. Once that is dried, paint your choice of colour over the gesso. 
5. To finish the layout, add embellishments & splatter some mist. The vellum ephemera works beautifully with the rest of the other embellishments on the layout. 

TIP > to add dimension to your embellishments, adhere foam dots/tape at the back to create a 3d look.

      Hello again! I'm back to share with you what I have created with the June Embellishment kit

Scrappy Tips: 
1. Place the metal die in the middle of the card and spray mist onto it to get the negative design. 

2. Cute the "Endless Summer" out from the bookmark.

3. Adhere the epoxy "Meet Me in the sunshine" & the frame onto "Endless Summer".

4. Finish the card with a triangle gold washi tape frame & some stars around the card.  


Thank you for letting me share today!

Here is my layout that I created using the Main kit + Embellishment kit

For the month of July, I was given the opportunity to create stamp designs for Citrus Twist Kits. I was so excited about this! Since tropical theme is such a hit, I just could't resist including watermelon, pineapple, lemon and all the summer fun words! 

For the Summer Adventure (4"x6") & "Yay" (3"x4") stamps, they are available to be purchased in the CTK online store. The prices of these stamps includes FREE shipping to anywhere in the world! In fact, it is free shipping for ALL CTK-brand stamps. How awesome is that! 

 These stamps are designed exclusively for July Main Scrapbook kit (left) & Project Life kit (right). 

Hope you like these stamps. Thank you so much for all your encouragements & kind comments. The comments definitely boost my creativity and courage in what I'm doing now! Keep 'em coming :*

Have a lovely day!
