Layering Scrapbook Elements with Doodlebug Design & Video!

Hello! I'm back today with another fun double page layout on the Scrap Shotz Blog using the Doodlebug Design Winter Wonderland collection! This time I'm sharing a video giving you some tips to use to layer all those fun papers, stickers, diecuts and embellishments you have - as well as how to use the Marvy Snow Marker!

Here's a look at the first layout using some cut apart 2.5" and 3x4" cards and border strips. I absolutely love the colours in this collection!

I added in some mixed media with Distress Oxide Sprays in the second layout - and this is the one you'll see me create in the video below.

Here's a look at the VIDEO where you can see just how everything came together-

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to head over to the Scrap Shotz Blog for closeups, details and links, and have an amazing weekend coming up!!

Valentines Baking with FREE Printable Recipe Cards!

Hello! I sure hope you are all having a sweet week! Mine definitely got sweeter with these pretty & delicious cookies that I made for Erica to take to school for a little Choir party! I decided to make a little digital scrapbook page using the Project Life App and add in the recipes for these simple, but awesome Sugar Cookies and Glaze. The Project Life App is FREE to download on your devices and I use it for so much more than making digital pages. I edit my photos, use the template to create two 3x4 sized photos to print out as a 4x6 - as well as many other sizes, save journaling cards, and today I decided to use the Recipe Value Kit ($1.39 CAD) to create my own recipe cards. I also purchased the ability to add extra text to photos and cards in various fonts, and I use this feature all the time!

Feel free to save these cards and print them out for your own use! This is one of the best Sugar Cookie recipes I've found. It pretty much stays the size you cut it out as and I always take them out of the oven just before they turn brown. They are delicious as is, but I wanted to kick it up a notch for Valentines!

I used the Rhonna Designs App to add a fun frame around my cookie pic and a cute and fitting sentiment! Because, hey, why not?!!

 Thanks so much for stopping by! I'd love to know what you do to celebrate Valentines - whether it's baking, making cards, decorating or giving some chocolately goodness to your family, friends or yourself 💘 Wishing you all a very Happy Valentines!

KraftIn’ Kimmie February New Release HOP & SHOP!

WOOHOO! Today we are celebrating all the new goodies that will be available this afternoon from our FEBRUARY Release at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! All THREE new clear stamp sets will be available over at the Krafty Shop, along with our new MAGICAL MIDNIGHT ink, TWO new Krafty Stencils and our new Heavenly Krafty Dots right after our Release Party in the Krafty Friends Facebook Group at 2 PM EST!  Yaaaay! Today, you'll get to see all the creative ways the Design Team has come up with to share these new products from the February Release again - if you missed inspiration from Day 1, Day 2 or Day 3 be sure to check it out, along with the VIDEOS! You'll find many ways to inspire you to use these awesome sets.  Today, I've chosen to use the adorably sweet Pretty Fly Stamp Set and create an interactive card!

I used Copic Markers to colour up this adorable family of birdies in a rainbow of colours and added them to a background of Pinkfresh Just A Little Lovely 6x6 paper. I love the mixed media look of this! I used the Lawn Fawn Let's Toast Pull Tab to add an interactive element to the front of the card. When you pull the tab, out flies the little birdie!!💜 🐦
This is such an adorable set! I love how many ways you can create with it. I stamped one of the sentiments included in the set on another watercolour background paper with the NEW Magical Midnight Ink and created a little banner.
 A few of the NEW Heavenly Krafty Dots placed on the bottom right of the card add just a few more pops of colour and dimension! Of course, I had to add rosy cheeks to my birdies. They look so happy, and I'm definitely feeling the Spring vibe now!
 Inside, I used the NEW Fabulous Feathers Stencil and sponged on Charming Chartreuse, Green Goblin and the NEW Magical Midnight Inks. Now the card is ready to personalize with any sentiment I need!
Here's a recap of all the amazing new goodies:
First up we have a gorgeous new set from artist, Sabrina van Vloten called....HAPPY HUMMINGBIRDS!

The second set is by artist Cheryl Grant and it's just so darn cute! It's called.....YOU'RE PRETTY FLY!

It's our FINAL day of peeks and everything you've seen us share this week will be in the online shop on Sunday afternoon!

Check out this calm and relaxed lady!  How wonderful to make a peaceful creation for someone who deserves a break! There are some main images, a lot of extra accessory stamps plus some fabulous sentiment stamps!
I decided to make a Spa-cial 😉 relaxing card using this amazing set! Wouldn’t this be perfect to give to a friend for their birthday - or to a teacher with a little gift card tucked in?!! I glammed up this cute card with Stardust glitter gel pen and used white gel pen for highlights. I love the Gellyroll #10 pen! I added some of the NEW exclusive Heavenly Dots, which ended up matching my colours perfectly!
Inside, I stacked the various images in the Center Picture Window Card opening. I love all the accessory stamps that come with this! I used Zig Real Brush Clean Colour Markers on Bristol Cardstock to colour in the images, stamped with Kraftin' Kimmie Wicked Black Ink, which is Copic and watercolour friendly. You can see the NEW Chubby Clouds Stencil inside that picture window, sponged with Bubbly Blue (on sale!!) and the NEW Magical Midnight Krafty Kolour Inks.
On the very back I added one more sweet and serene image and left a spot to write a heartfelt note! I think someone will feel very relaxed and pampered after receiving it... Hmmm, I may just need to give it to myself 🤭

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps February New Release HOP - Day 2 Pretty Fly!

Hello friends, and welcome back to Day 2 of the fabulous February 2020 Release Sneak Peeks from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!! Did you enjoy yesterday's previews of all the amazing new goodies?? Are ya ready for MORE? Be sure to check out the VIDEO below for closeups over everything!
Today we have a sweet new encouragement set by fabulous artist Cheryl Grant! It's called....PRETTY FLY! What a sweet little family of tweeters! There is one main image with an extra birdie stamp plus some wonderful and uplifting sentiments!  These little sweethearts make my heart soar!
I just love the way the little bird looks like he's getting ready to fly, so I decided to play on that and create a flip card showing him spreading his wings! This card would be perfect for Graduation or Congrats, and I love how many other occasions you could use this lovely spring set for - there are lots of options with these sentiments!
 I created a background on Yupo Paper with Ranger Alcohol Inks and used a Sizzix die to cut out an oval. I used the Mama Elephant Flip Slider die to create a little flip effect showing the baby bird spreading his wings to fly!
I used one of our NEW stencils - Chubby Clouds to lightly stencil in fluffy clouds in the background with Bubbly Blue Ink (on sale this month!!)
Our NEW ink Magical Midnight is a wonderful stony blue, which I used to stamp the sentiment on the pull tab.
 I used Copic Markers to colour in the images. You could use so many colour combinations for these cuties! I added three of our NEW Heavenly Dots on the bottom left of the card for a touch more of texture and colour!
Inside, I stamped the cute stand alone birdie and a cheerful sentiment, and I used the NEW Fabulous Feathers Stencil with Bubbly BlueLovely Lagoon and NEW Magical Midnight Inks.
Here's a look at the VIDEO where you can see everything included in the Pretty Fly stamp set along with the interactive card I created in action!
