Hi friends!! I hope you had a wonderful holiday break this past weekend. We knocked a heap of things off our to-do list so that now I feel like I need a break from my break ;) But no such luck, back to work for me! And back to school for Z-man tomorrow, wohoo! He's not nearly as excited as I am. Hah.
Just thought I'd swing by quickly and share another layout I created using the CTK April kits! This one is a little different for me because there is no photo. No photo?! I know! Crazy, right? But seriously, there is no photo. There are lots and lots of die-cuts however.
And I really love it :)
I'm a lover of die-cuts. All those little bits and pieces make my scrappy heart happy.
I actually started this page with no plan in mind at all. I was just messing around with the die-cuts and I started laying pieces on the page randomly. Before I knew it I had them like this and then the idea for my layout came together!
Little bit of machine stitching here and there, typed up the journalling on the computer and it was done. I added a few foam dots behind a couple die-cuts to give the page a little dimension but it really was a easy page to put together; it just happened - and I love it! Wish all my pages were so simple and easy to put together (because they never are!).
And that's another April layout finished and shared, wohoo! I feel a great satisfaction when I actually get around to blogging all my layouts haha. Always leaving it to the last minute ;)
I won't tell you that my May kits just arrived today and oh-my-gawd..SO GOOD... Oh oops, did I say it outloud?! ;)
Hope the start to your week has been a great one! As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Take care, Em xo
Hi guys! Back again to share a couple more pages using the CTK January kits! I really love die-cuts included in the main and add-on kits this month. (Big shout out for the die-cuts in the Main and Pocket Life kits - aren't the designs just awesome?!)
First up is this one - I set the design for this one solely on those leave die-cuts out of the main kit. They matched up perfectly with more out of the add-one. Added a few doilies for layers and then popped a little cluster of embellishments at the bottom of my page. Done!
And the next one is totally all about making stars. I absolutely love stars; quite alot of my layouts feature them. For this page I just hand-cut stars using scissors (I drew them in pencil on the reverse and them cut them to shape so they stayed a little consistent, otherwise my stars go super wonky ha!).
Added a copule more chipboard stars and my title is a chipboard word from the add-on kit. I adore the soft colours of the page. Not too girly but still girly, if that make's sense ;)
And that is it for now! Still have a couple more to share but they'll be a little later on the month on the CTK blog ;)
Thanks so much for stopping by. Take care! Em xo
Hi friends! I'm late posting another layout but I actually have a legit reason for once; I've had no internet (phone company doing maintenance that caused drama's with our line). But happy to report we're back up and running and so here I am!
I've booted up the Cameo a few times this month and I'm enjoying playing with it again. It really is awesome little thing.
I created my own background pattern by repeating a hexagon shape and then cut it out of white cardstock. My initial thought was to put patterned paper behind but then I had all these white little hexagons lying about and I figured it might be fun to create layers using them! So I got out my trusty glue pen and stuck them together, anywhere from 2-8 high.
I used the August Main and Add-on for this one! Took a little time to stick those tiny little hexagons together (they're only about 1/2 inch'ish wide) but I'm super happy with how it ended up. It's one of those pages that is hard to capture on film but the different depths looks cool in person....atleast I think so hehe.
Those puffy and word stickers in the main - loooooove! I'm a sucker for the tiny little embellishments (perfect size for my pages) and these are perfect!
And that's it for now! Tomorrow is FRI-YAY! And it's doubly good for me this week because I'm starting 2 weeks holiday after tomorrow, YAYAYAYAYAY! Can.not.wait. No special plans to go anywhere, just looking forward to having 2 weeks off to re-charge and do whatever. (Like get up super early and go to Flour Market on Sunday, yayayyayay).
Hope your week has been a great one! Thanks for stopping by :) Em xo
