Mad Scrappers Layouts

A few layouts from the Mad Scrappers using January and February's Club Kits:

This first layout is by Julia using February's Kit of Simple Stories 'Hugs & Kisses' patterned papers:

Lovely layout and photographs Julia of a precious family cat.  A fab memory to cherish.

The next two layouts are by Brenda using January's Kit containing patterned papers from Authentique 'Cozy':

Love the layout and photograph of a beautiful Husky dog.  I agree with your sentiment Brenda - fabulous breed. 

Great layout using fab photographs!

Finally, a layout from Beryl using January's Kit:

Fab layout using equally fab photo choices Beryl .  These patterned papers are just perfect.  Love the title too.

Thank you ladies for sharing with us.  Good luck in our monthly draw, which takes place at the next club night.

Family Love: Layout

This is the third layout I have created using this month's Mad Scrappers Kit of Simple Stories 'Hugs & Kisses' patterned papers, coordinating cardstock, Sticker Sheet and an 8" Doily.

I used Bazzill white cardstock for the base of this layout, layering it with red cardstock and then the reverse side of 'Devotion' patterned paper.

I simply added the 8" Doily in the centre of the layout and cut my photograph into a circle to fit in the middle.  I used the (freebie) feather die (again) and added part of my title on the doily and for the remainder used one of the cards from the patterned paper.

Well Mad Scrappers it is the first club night of this month tonight!  Looking forward to seeing you all.  Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave a comment so that I know you have passed by this way.

Candy Box Crafts: Boxette

A recent addition to The Scrapbook Garden shop is this fab 'Boxette' by Candy Box Crafts:

This is an MDF kit that is made using a tab to tab or tab and slot method of construction.  All you need to glue it together is PVA wood glue, small brush and a damp cloth for wiping away excess glue.
Using some Kaisercraft 'Betsy's Couture' patterned papers, pearl gems and some die-cut roses, this is what I created using this fab little kit:
Side view showing the different papers I used.
I used die-cut roses and pearls to decorate the top of the 'Boxette'.
The inside of the 'Boxette' is covered in the Kaisercraft 'Betsy's Couture' papers as well.
I enjoyed creating this little 'Boxette' - I think they may become my next little obsession!

LOVE: Layout

This is another layout I have created using this month's Mad Scrappers Kit that includes patterned papers from Simple Stories 'Hugs & Kisses' rangeI based the layout on an idea I saw on Pinterest changing mine to suit:

I used Bazzill Blackbird cardstock as the base and layered with the reverse side of 'Hearthrob' patterned paper, then a layer of Bazzill White cardstock.  Tip: gut out the middle of the black cardstock and patterned paper to use on other layouts and for die-cutting.  The 'LOVE' word is cut using a die and some of the black cardstock.

For the circles I used a 2" paper punch and used double-sided foam tape for dimension on some of them.  I die-cut one of the circles to use as a journaling block.

I have managed to get another layout from this kit and will post soon.  Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave a comment so that I know you have passed by this way.

The Girls: layout

Using this month's Mad Scrappers Club Kit, which contains patterned papers from the Simple Stories 'Hugs & Kisses' range I created this first (of three) layouts:

The layout is scraplifted from Simple Stories but I put my own slant on it slightly.  The feathers are cut from (a freebie die) from Simply Cards & Papercraft Issue 132. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave a comment so that I know you have passed by this way.
