Handmade ~ Scrapbook Layout

Good Morning :)
I am back today to share the November feature layout for Crafts 4 Eternity ~ Handmade.
The November kits are available to purchase from the Crafts 4 Eternity store HERE
I really enjoyed working with this kit, I love Prima products!

The layout is a "clean" mixed media layout using fabulous Prima Zella Teal products. I have used the November Page kit and the Add-On kit to complete the layout.

The photo is my DS2 when he was little the blue of his clothes worked really well with the light teal/blue of the kit.

I used a mix of Distress Reinkers to add some light colour to the white cardstock then stamped with Dove FRey Stazon ink and one of the gorgous Prima Zella Teal rose stamps (Add-On kit)
The effect is very gentle and helps to lift the layout.

I created two embellishment clusters using the Prima flowers in the kit and another of the Prima stamps (leaf).

Included in the Ephemera in the kit are some cute stickers, the Sweet Memories banner sticker was the perfect finish to the layers of paper and washi tape behind the photo.

I love journal cards but don't use them often on layouts. The Add-On kit includes a pack of beautiful Journal Notecards, I cut the text off one of the cards to add to the layout as my journaling.
You can just see one of the Puffy Stickers on the corner of the photo they are supper sticky!

There are a few pieces of paper and lots of the Add-On kit left to make a couple more projects :)

Thanks for stopping by have a great weekend!

Autumn Card

Good Morning :)
I am back today with a card using Prima Amber Moon collection.
The October Page kit has now sold out, but there are a couple of Add-On Kits available.

I used the same design process for the card that I used for the October feature layout 

I have added a sprinkle of orange sequins into the embellishment cluster.

I used a rubber shape from the Add-On kit for my cards sentiment. The rubber shapes are self adhesive and super sticky!

Autumn is my favourite time of year I love the colours!

Have a wonderful weekend, thanks for stopping by!

Autumn Layout

Good Morning :)
I am back today with the October feature layout using the Crafts 4 Eternity October Page kit available HERE.
The kit has lots of beautiful Autumn products from Prima's Amber Moon collection.

I have used the In to the Woods paper as the main background piece leaving a nice white border all around the layout.

I rolled two corners of the main paper and tucked some pattern paper, string and gold thread behind the rolls.

In front of the corner rolls I created pretty flower and leaf clusters using the embellishments included in the kit and the October Add-On Kit.

Prima products are always lovely to work with, they are not only beautiful but the quality is wonderful. The papers are heavy weight and will take anything you throw at them!

I will be back next week with an Autumn card using Prima's Amber Moon collection.
Thanks for stopping by have a great day!

Summer Scrapbook Layout


 Good Morning :)
I have the Crafts 4 Eternity August Page Kit feature layout for you today :)
With the lack of summer sunshine I had to look back for a sunny photo to go with the August Page kit and found this one from 2011.

I don't usually journal on the front of my layouts instead I write lots of detail on the back. 
The boys in the photo are my eldest son and nephew, the first day of out holiday to Devon we walked down to the nearest beach, down a very steep cliff path! It didn't take long for DS1 to get completely soaked playing with the waves, he was fully dressed! 

To me this is summer, the boys at the beach paddling in the sea with their clothes on lol!

It's a very clean and simple layout for me .... the first version I flicked ink on to it and managed to smudge it so badly that I had to cut it apart and re-stick the pieces on to a fresh piece of cardstock. You would have thought I would know by now, no matter how much dabbing it's not going to get any better just worse lol!

Thanks for stopping by today I hope the sun is shining for you!

Oh Yeah! ~ C4E June Feature Layout

Good Morning :)
Today I am back with the June feature layout ~ Oh Yeah!
The Oh Yeah! Page Kits are available in the store HERE.

I used a 4x6" portrait photo of DS2 taken a few years ago at a school sports day.
I love capturing cheeky character photos of the boys, I'd rather have a silly pose which shows off their character than a forced photo with sulky faces!

The photo is very bold and needed very little to make it pop on the page, it does that all by itself!
I created a central cluster of pattern papers behind the photo and added fussy cut paint strips from the What a Blast paper underneath. You could add these painty strips using paints.

I have added some of the gorgeous Page Flags from the kit to add more layers before adding the embellishments.

I created 3 embellishment clusters using Bradz from the Page Kit, Enamel Dots and Sprinkles from the Add-On kit. The phrase/ word and title stickers are from my stash.
And there you have it one fun cheeky layout celebrating DS2's character.

Have a fabulous Saturday thanks for stopping by!

Nope Not Today Scrapbook Layout

Good Morning :)
I am back today with the Crafts 4 Eternity's March Feature Layout
Kits are available HERE and include instructions to complete the layout.

The page kit includes a full sheet of Simple Stories #whatever stickers which are fabulous!
I used lots of the stickers from the kit and the March Add-On kit

I used two of the journal card elements cutting out the circle "Don't Care" element to tuck under the photo.

The enamel dot are from the March 2016 Add-On kit

I really enjoyed making this layout I don't usually use so many stickers!
Is there an embellishment you don't use much on your layouts?

February Page Kit ~ Adore

Good Morning :)
The February Page kit is now available from the C4E Store
I've chosen gorgeous products from Simple Stories Love and Adore collection to celebrate the month of love!
The feature layout is called Adore and stars my baby boy Marley :)

I kept the layout quite simple this month and didn't use any mixed media!!

There is a central paper cluster with the photo sitting on top. Underneath this there is a strip of gorgeous XO's

I have added chipboard pieces and enamel dots from the Adore Add-On kit
to the embellishments n the kit to create embellishment clusters across the page.

I have enough pieces left over to make a card or two and decorate my planner too!
I love stretching a kit as far as I can creating as many projects as I can :)
Kits are available HERE along with a few past kits and some new Media kits.

I will be working on next weekends Craft Club workshop getting messing with rust!
Are you crafting this weekend?
Have a wonderful weekend thanks for stopping by!

Strength Layout

Good Morning :)
Happy New Year!
The Crafts 4 Eternity January Page kit is now available from the store HERE.
The kit is called Strength and features papers from Kaisercraft's Barber Shoppe collection.
The feature layout is called Strength and the kit includes instructions to complete this layout.

I liked the rustic shabby chic feel of the wood paper so used this as the background for the layout.
I distressed all the edges creating a more wood like feel to it.

The photo is of my nephew having a go at removing a rather stubborn tree stump it took a lot of effort to get those out!

Ater creating a paper cluster for the photo to sit on I flicked white and black Gesso over the page.

The Alpha stickers, word sticker and enamel dots are from my stash. I used quite a lot of enamel dots!

I used the embellishments in the kit to create one main embellishment cluster.
I have no problem using flowers and lace on a masculine layout!

That's all from me today :)
Do you use flowers on a masculine layout?
Thanks for stopping by have a great day!
