Before You Read You Chewed

Hey everyone!  I have a new layout for you featuring items from the Things That Shine Fall Kits and Pops of Color.

DSCN4402

I went down in size to 8.5 x 11 for this one.  I really enjoyed working in a smaller format.  My page is about my son’s love of reading that started when he was a baby and this size really feels like a page out of a story book.  My son is twelve now so I bet you’ve guessed I don’t scrap chronologically.  I usually scrapbook what I’m inspired to do; what I feel like scrapping.  I view all my many many photos as source material.  The thing I liked about scrapping this baby photo was the perspective I got just looking at this photo of my son chewing on a fabric book and thinking about how he has always loved books and how they are so very important to him.

Here is something totally fun I did.  I used the Electric Blue fine glitter from the Pop of Color in Electric Blue mixed it with Ranger glossy gel medium and pull it through a JBS stencil on the vintage book pages.  You can see in the full layout that I stacked these book pages from the Sweet Fox Teal & Twill kit horizontally behind the photo.  The 3 gold photo corners are included in the Leaves are Falling kit.

Isn’t this bear the cutest!  It is one of many little fall dimensional stickers that come in The Start of Something New kit.  The white tag with the strip of yellow at the bottom is from the Pop of Color in Neon Yellow.

On bottom half of this kraft tag from The Start of Something New kit I stacked these darling buttons from the Leaves are Falling Kit.  I love how the dots on the blue button relates back to the dots on the book in the photo.

I made a pattern with these neon yellow gems from the Pop of Color in Neon Yellow.  They really do “pop” layered on top of this muted aqua vintage ephemera.

I thought this “date taken” Maggie Holmes stamp was the perfect addition to the this layout, since the photo is older but the journaling includes current thoughts.  I just stamped it with JBS weather vane ink, cut it out, and attached it with an office supply paper clip.

Thank you so much for checking out my latest creation!!!  I’m truly grateful to be able to share it with you!  Visit Ashley’s Things That Shine shop for all the items you see here and many more lovely kits and bits.

See ya soon with more fun artsy stuff.

Find Your Toes and Kick

Hey guys!!!  I’m here today to share with you a new layout made with Things That Shine Kits and Bits.  For this page I’m still back in baby land and I am enjoying being there.  I think my son kinda loves it too.

DSCN4151

Here are some details:

DSCN4152

Yummy Neon Yellow fine glitter from the Things That Shine Pop of Color Embellishment Pack in Neon Yellow.  I brushed on some thick strokes of matte gel medium and then sprinkled on the glitter.  After it dried, I used more gel medium to apply the title letters over the somewhat bumpy surface.

DSCN4162

I painted this exclusive die cut ampersand from Things That Shine with Gold Color Shine mist.  Ashley sells wonderful cut file designs, but also sells die cuts for those of us that have yet to get a cutting machine.  I love they way the Color Shine mist goes on thicker and thinner in some places when brushed on.  It give the die cut a real painterly feel.

DSCN4170

I layered this last part of the title over the photo and a yellow striped bag from the Back to School kit.  The beautiful gold photo corners are from the Leaves are Falling kit.

DSCN4157

This yellow striped tag is also part of the Pop of Color Embellishment Pack in Neon Yellow.  I topped it with this fabric covered heart from the First Days of Summer kit and added a bit of wonky hand stitching with a few strands of white embroidery floss from the Celebrate Summer kit.

DSCN4166

This floppy seam binding bow was part of the Leaves are Falling kit packaging.  I just left it as is and tore the tag down to make a place to hold the date.  Another bit of gold; this washi tape date label is also from Ashley’s Thing That Shine etsy shop.  Did you know Ashley sells washi tape by the foot in her shop.  She has an awesome array of colors and designs.  You should definitely go check it out!

You can probably tell that I am having a ton of fun with Ashley’s Thing That Shine kits.  Look here to see what suits your fancy.

Thanks soooooo much for stopping by today!  I’m planning on a new In the Studio post, so meet me here at the end of the week for that.

Go forth and make your world shiney!  🙂

A New Shiney Pocket Page

Hey everyone!

As promised I’m here to share my second ever pocket page.  This is a Design D pocket page from Becky Higgins.  I just cut one side of the 4×6 pockets off to suit the amount of photos and cards I wanted to use.  I made this insert to go between my last two Easter layouts, using the same Things That Shine Kits and other scrappy products.  I used the Things That Shine Spring Showers kit, sequins from the Pops of Colour packs in neon pink and neon green, a hand painted tag from the Pop of Colour pack in neon yellow, a bit of washi from the Days of Summer kit, and one of Ashley’s gorgeous handmade feathers.

DSCN3926

Here you can see I have two see through pockets.  I made a shaker pocket with sequins and those super cute wood veneer umbrellas from the Spring Showers kit and stitched an arrow, cut from Echo Park patterned paper, on top of another page protector pocket.  I handmade the 3×4 cards using patterned paper with a little misting, pink patterned fabric tapes from the Spring Showers kit, and  stitched on sentiments cut from an Easter card sent from my mom.

DSCN3937Even though this is a pocket page I can’t seem to get away from making titles.  At age 11 my son is still Lovin’ the Bunny and I wrote a little note to him about that in the top right 4×6 card that I made.  I use this floral patterned envelope, tag, and lavender floss included in the Spring Showers kit for this secret journaling.

DSCN3943

I love that the Crate Paper patterned paper I used for this card says Field Research in the top right hand corner.  I thought it was a perfect background for notes and a taped on feather.  And here is where I apologize for my lack of photography skills!!!  I am having a tough time with the glare on the pocket pages and would love any suggestions for improvement and also I was experimenting with the size at which I was photographing my pages and I guess I went to small.  Yikes…but I wanted to post it…You can always enlarge on your computer to get a better view and please feel free to ask if you having any questions about how I did anything or what supplies I used.

Here is how my Easter pages will go in my album:

Did you know Ashley sells washi tape by the foot in her Things That Shine shop?   It is great to get a foot or two of a variety of tapes instead of having to by whole rolls that you never will use.  I for one am loving this.  Pop over to her shop and check out all the amazing patterns she has!  Also, consider following me on Pinterest where you can see the current Things That Shine kits and bits I am using, my Things That Shine projects, and all sort of other of loveliness that catches my eye.  🙂

See ya next week with a new Shiney layout, that I have to reshoot 😦

Happy Scrapping!!!

A Simple Tradition

Hi all!  I’m super excited to share with you a new layout I created with Ashley Calder and the Things That Shine embellishment kits.  In the layout featuring our colorful Easter eggs from this year I used Ashley’s beautiful Spring Showers kit, her handmade feathers, and Pops of Color packs in Neon Yellow and Neon Pink.

DSCN3879

The items in the Things That Shine kits are so dreamy and I just love how the various kits work together.  Also, I love how the kits are wonderful on their own, but can also bring your stash to life.  Here I chose some patterned papers from my stash that weren’t too old, but now they feel brand new.  The feather pattern from Studio Calico make the eggs feel like they are in a nest and so I pulled out this gorgeous silver feather handmade by Ashley that goes perfectly with the label and other hints of silver in the Spring Showers kit.

DSCN3873

I just love how the tip of the feather appears to have been dipped is chunky silver glitter.  Behind you can see a bit of the pink gingham fabric.  This is actually one of three patterns of self-adhesive fabric tapes that come in the Spring Showers kit.  I just cut this one in half and stuck the pieces down to go underneath each side of the photo. These pink sequins, from the Pop of Color in Neon Pink pack, are so pretty I felt like I was painting with them as I placed them over misted drips.

DSCN3870

When I first saw the pale aqua blue tulle from the Spring Showers kit I thought of Easter dresses, so I created a ruffly little banner at the bottom of the page.  I hung these tags, also from the kit, and adorned them with the included bits and pieces.  The star tag in the center is made by Ashley; I just added the turquoise bow.

DSCN3867

I just adore these hand painted tags from the Pop of Color in Neon Yellow pack and with the addition of the cute hearts that also come in the Spring Showers kit I created two more tags for my banner.

DSCN3855

And one more detail of the sequins because I just have to share my hand stitching.  I really love the look of this embroidery floss hand stitched over the machine stitching.  Ashley includes the perfect amount of coordinating floss in her kits and I just love the soft feel it brings to my projects.

Why not treat yourself with one of Ashley’s beautiful embellishment kits; just pop over to her shop and see all that she has to offer for your scrapbooking and crafting needs.

Also, you can follow me on pinterest, where I created a Things That Shine Kits and Project board where I not only pin my shiney projects, but the shiney kits that I am currently working with.  That way you can get a sneak peak, before the actual sneak, lol!

As always, thanks for stopping by and have a fun and crafty day!  Stop back by on Monday when I will be posting my addition to the “blog tour”.

See ya then!

🙂  Evie
