For my layout  I began with American Crafts White Textured Cardstock . I used a Teresa Collins triangle stencil with some Acrylic Gloss Medium. This created a subtle embossed look on my cardstock. I flipped the stencil around and placed the stencil over the Gloss medium background. I made sure to place it over the areas where there were no triangles. I used three of my favorite Shimmerz DazzlerzDreamscicleTutti Frutti and Sea U in the Mornin.

I then printed a series of 3 photos of my adorable niece and cut them into triangle shapes. I backed my photos with some mint colored scotch washi tape which I placed on white cardstock as well as a gray and white patterned paper from an old Studio Calico Paper Pad.

I added a few embelishments from my stash mainly from the My Minds Eye on Trend Collection. Some of the triangle pieces of ephemera I made into shaker triangles using the new beautiful Mocha Mint Dream Sequins.

I also used some ephemera words from the same collection for my tittle. I just added the die cut words to some velum and traced them with a black sharpie pen. I also added a tag from my stash behind it. I added some tangled mint thread in three areas and I finished off my layout with the new thin Chunky Cork Stars and the Chunky Cork Hearts, to half of the hearts I added Gold Stardust Sequins.

For my layout I began with 12×12 American Crafts White Textured Cardstock. I am scrapbooking a photo of my adorable niece being her silly self. I had a thought of an all white layout. I began by creating a fun unique background with a stencil and Gloss Medium. While the gloss medium was wet I sprinkled some of the beautiful Glass Slippers Sequins on top and let them dry with the gloss medium.

As a photo mat I used one of the White Lace Paper Doilies and a Large Glassine Bag which I folded on one end so create some texture. I decided to bring some grey, silver and light pink into the mix.

I added a few sticker embellishments from my stash which I placed on some fun foam and then fussy cut out. I also scattered around some of the Felt-Fetti Hearts in white and two of the new colors, light and dark grey.

 

I also added the silver stars from the Alma Mater Sequin Mix and the light Pink ones from the Mocha Mint Dream Sequin Mix. I added my tittle using  a silver word from a Thickers pack and I also used some of the silver arrows and hearts from that pack.

I added some silver ink splatters and some detailing with a dark grey American Crafts pen. Finally, I matted the whole layout on a Grey and white Patterned Paper from the Pink Paislee Bella Rouge paper pad.

Pretty Patterned Paper Playground March 2016

Hello friends! I know I am a bit late in posting this however I wanted to share with you all how The Pretty Patterned Paper Playground or P4 for short, came to be. My new friend Evi and I, who met through YouTube, recently discovered that we both live in Florida and pretty darn close too. I invited Evi to join me at a crop some friends were hosting. We immediately hit it off.  We had an awesome time and even did a little scrappy shopping together after the crop at a nearby Tuesday Morning.

We discussed the option of scrapping to together and thought it would make for a fun You Tube series.

We met up shortly after that for a nice lunch date at Perricone’s here in Downtown Miami. We discussed the details and that is where The  Pretty Patterned Paper Playground was born.

We decided we would post twice a month, once scrapbooking together and once separate. Each month we will follow a mood board Evi & I put together and we will also have a challenge. Here is our first ever mood board for the month of March 2016

When we scrap together we will set a timer for 15 minutes and try our best to complete our layout in that time. We will also create our own Pretty Patterned Paper. Using Mixed Media and various techniques. The top two photos below are the layouts we created when we scrapped together. The one on the left is Evi’s and the one on the right is mine. As a fun twist we decided to scrap the same photo(notice it’s the photo from our lunch date.) You can find the process video of Evi and I scrapping together here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_NtJeRGPvFc

For our second video where we scrap separately we will always have a different challenge. For the month of March we decided to scraplift the very talented Missy Whidden. Evi and I are huge fans. The two photos above with the vertical circle clusters are our interpretations of Missy’s beautiful layout. The one on the left is Evi’s and on the right is mine. We deviated a bit from our mood board but I think we both did a great job of recreating Missy’s idea. We thought it would be fun to post our videos on each others channels.

We started a Facebook Group, also called Pretty Patterned Paper Playground. We created it so that we could share the layouts we create and hopefully inspire our crafty friends to play along with our challenges or to simply create. Our group is a fun, interactive place for crafty friends to gather and share our work with each other. No need to follow our mood board or our challenge, we just want to see what you are creating and want to be inspired by you. I hope you will join us on YouTube as well as on Facebook so that you don’t miss out on any of the fun.

Thanks so much for stopping by! XOXO -Katty

Victoria Marie DT: Sketch Challenge

My lovely teammate Megan & I are co-hosting this weeks challenge on the Victoria Marie FB Group. This week we are following an awesome sketch that Megan found on Pinterest. The sketch is from the Elle’s Studio Blog. In addition to following the sketch we are also challenging our members to use Valentines Day colors in their layouts.

12670596_10153995929577764_6699685875133381980_n

For this layout I am working with the Crate Paper Hello Love Collection. I began with some gesso in the background to tone down the bold stripe patterned paper. I then layered my papers and fussy cut the hearts from one of the sheets from the paper pad to replace the triangles at the bottom of the sketch. I then added some Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain in Cracked Pistachio to the background. I added a few die cuts from the Maggie Holmes Shine Ephemera pack, American Crafts Foam thickers and a few Puffy hearts and stickers from my stash.

Scrapbook Process: Sparkle & Shine

I am a member of quite a few of the Scrapbook Related Facebook groups. I love the inspiration and interaction with other wonderful Crafty ladies. This month two of the groups I belong to, The Pink Camera Community and Scrapbook like a Superhero are both hosting Valentines Day themed challenges. The challenge itself is to use hearts on your layout. I decided to scrapbook a picture of my adorable niece.

FullSizeRender-4

I used some heart rub ons on the left hand side of my white cardstock. I then created a messy frame for my photo using some Faber Castell Gelatos which I mixed with some water. I tried to keep this layout nice and simple so I did some simple layering using a few sheets of paper from the Crate Paper Notes and Things 6×6 paper pad. I added some flat enamel dots and jewels from my stash.  I also used a Cork Bow from the Dear Lizzy Documentary Collection.

FullSizeRender-5

For my tittle I used a few word puffy stickers from the Pink Paislee Bella Rouge Collection. I added two sheets of paper from a DCWV Paper pad as a frame for my layout. As a finishing touch I added some silver sequin stars scattered around in a few areas of the page. In the end the layout was exactly what I envisioned. Soft, Pretty, Light and airy.
