Record Your Story - Heritage Journal with Shimmerz Paints

Hello Shimmerz fans!! Today I have a share from my Heritage Journal I have been working on. The photo is my grandmother right around 1900.


I like to keep my journal pages flat as possible with few embellishments to achieve that. I add dimention with color and texture…and I start with stamping and stencil work. For the paste I used Salt of the Earth Paste-eez…it is perfect for stencils!
 

For added color I went with Mon Shari Coloringz and Hot Fudge Vibez. Such a pretty combination!
 

To finish it all off I added some splatters of Penny 4 Your Thoughts Inklingz.

Check out our Facebook page for lots of inspiration and share with us what you created with Shimmerz! Look for us on Instagram too! Don’t forget to mention my name at the store checkout for your free sample of Shimmerz!!

Take care and happy scrapping!

Selfie - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone! Today I have a fun selfie layout to share….me and Olaf. Creative Embellishments chippys were the perfect extras to make this layout pop, the papers, some of the stamps, and flowers are from 49 and Market.
 

I love the Distressed Text stamp and have used it in the background. I layered a Clock face and pieces from the Moroccan Lattice Panel behind the photo.
 

Tucking in some gear chippys to give this a bit of a girly grunge look. All of my chippys are just finished with a coat of gesso.
 

The title chippy is from the Selfie word set and went perfect with this layout!

 
That is it for me for today! Don’t forget to check out the April challenge …. Make sure to share all of your creations on our Facebook page… Take care and Happy Scrapping!

My Creative Scrapbook April LE Kit - Layout with Layers

Hi everyone! It is time for the April Reveal of the My Creative Scrapbook kits!! Always exciting to see the kits they create each month. All are loaded with everything you need to create many gorgeous pieces. Here is a peek at the yummy Limited kit that I created with this month.....its truly beautiful! 

This is my first layout and I am going to share with you how I created some layers on this layout. Layers to me add so much extra and dimension to your projects. Yet they do not have to be thick layers to do so. I do not like my layouts to be too thick as I still like to put them into albums. So let’s get started!
 
First I did the background layers. I tear off pieces and on some I distressed the edges to curl them a bit, and on the other I used a punch on the edges. Just tuck in some of the torn pieces to give you a few layers in the background.
 

Next I used the stencil and the stamps included in the kit and added more layers with them. Remember…so far these are all flat layers, so no worries on a thick layout.


 To mat the photo I used some of the coordinating cards and some cut out pieces from the kit. I did add a piece of cardboard from the kit box behind the photo to make it pop up a bit.


Add your photo to the background now. I also added some twine and the letters and ribbon from the kit here.


Lastly just add your embellishments. Now you have many layers and each one adds depth, detail and dimension to your creation. A few close ups of the finished layout.

 

Head on over to My Creative Scrapbook to check out ALL of the kits and details on how to get  yours! I hope you have fun creating with this kit and adding some layers!

Enchanting - 40 and Market

Hello 49 and Market fans!! Have you seen the gorgeous new Scents of Nature collection yet? I just love it and it screams Spring to me!!! You can also get it in a 6x6 Collection pack…which I have used in the background to mat my photo. The beautiful 12x12 piece is called “Hold On Me”. I love all of the details on this piece.
 
Look at that gorgeous paper in the background…love it! For the background I also did lots of stamping with Gabi’s Ethereal Stamp Set. This stamp set is so versatile and there are so many stamps to use in it. The chipboard pieces are from Creative Embellishments.


I used lots of 49 and Market blooms around the photo to bring it as the focal point on this layout. I started with a Pale Lavender Garden Vine. I then tucked in pieces from the Green Multi Blooms Pack, and white and green roses as filler.

 

Another big MUST HAVE that is new…. Wings and Things Layered Embellishments. This package is loaded with lots of fun dimensional embellishments to add to your projects. Here I have used some lovely branch pieces and look at that adorable butterfly. These are super fun and already have sticky pop up darts on the back for easy use. I finished everything off with little splashes of Shimmerz Inklingz.


That is it for me today…Pop on by our Facebook page for lots of inspiration! Share your 49 and Market creations with us! Take care and Happy Scrapping!
