More from the Papermaze April Kit

This is the post I have up on the Papermaze blog today

 Hi Tracee with you today to share another project I created using the April Kit.

This time I created a little gift for a new baby girl, consisting of an Easel card with a drawer and box. Inside the little drawer there is a small Minibook with space for the new parents to add some photo's

I attached the Kraft envelope to the main part of the easel card and added a tag that pulls out and a couple more pics can be added.

The little mini album is made from tag shapes and I used some of the string to hold them all together.
I used scraps of the papers from the kit to decorate the tags.

On the sheet of alpha stickers there are quite a few different images along with the letters and I added a few of these here and there through the minibook
I hope you have been inspired to purchase one of these fab kits for yourself and all supplies used can be found in the shop.

CSI 120 - Solved

Today I am sharing CSI 120 and how I solved the case

This was the Case File
Debbi Always manages to find the cutest images!

And here is my take on it

Evidence Used;
Textured paper (I used texture paste to make my paper textured)
Mixed Media background
Place something upside down (my letter l's are upside down)
Wet Medium

Write your journaling as a Haiku
Well I tried and failed lol
I have written extra journaling on the back explaining how this was the first time that Poppy had driven to see the girls
Hope you find time to play along this week

Our Lil Monster Misc Me

Our Lil Monster Misc Me

Our Lil Monster is perfect for all the little monsters out there, I have "borrowed" mine from my youngest daughter, he is the little boy she child minds for and I thought this collection and the Misc Me concept is perfect for recording her time with him.

I have added smaller pictures to these pages to also show off the adorable patterns and images that make up the Our Lil Monster collection as well as leaving plenty of space for her to add her journaling.

As well as all the cards that slot right into the pockets, I have also added some of the 12 x 12 papers and the noteworthy elements from the same collection. It all coordinates perfectly and makes creating your pages a breeze.

You can add elements from different collections as I have done wit the Kraft chevron bag. I simply cut it to size and the stitched it directly to my 6 x 4 journaling card. I then added another card that slips inside the pocket for extra journaling or photos.

Papermaze April Kit

I am up on the Papermaze blog today with this post

Hi Tracee with you today sharing a layout I created using the gorgeous April Kit

This months kit features the stunning Fresh Cuts collection by Basic Grey, with a few other papers including a pink Polka dot sheet from Carta Bella (my favourite sheet!) and Kaisercraft Choc Chip from the Tea Break collection.
The kit always includes a couple of sheets of plain cardstock and this time I started with the white sheet and layered my papers on it in strips across the top and down the right hand side of the page.
I used a polka dot stencil and some distress ink to add a little interest to the white space in the bottom left side of the layout.

This month you also get a sheet of the cute alpha stickers from Pink Paislee sentiment series and a chipboard title that was quite literally "Perfect" for my page.

I will be back later in the month to show you what else I created with this fab kit.

CSI -Scrap365/5 case file -Solved

We are so excited to announce our collaboration with Scrap365, UK's biggest and best scrapbooking magazine. 

We shared our first Special Scrap365 Case File in August and are opening our fifth Case File during the month of April. After this Case File closes, we will be selecting our five favourite layouts to feature, and those people will be invited as CSI Special Deputies (guest designers) for June. 

This is the case file to solve
A fun filled case file and here is how I solved it.

Stripes, floral, Plaid patterns
Tie something
Write about something silly
My journaling reads
"Selfies, and the "art" of getting them right.
Either my arms aren't long enough or my head's too big,
I just don't know,
but I do know that I have to take 25+ shots
just to get one close to what I am looking for.
These were some shots I took when I was trying to get a shot of me in my new glasses, and believe me these are just a "few" of the ones I took all the while trying to balance my phone somehow in my hand lol. Anyone got any tips? I need all the help I can!
A few close ups
I used some of the journaling pages from Bo Bunny's Misc Me range to create some layers.
I also cut the camera and speech bubble from them too. The make it your style sticker is from an old Websters Pages collection.
I used the arrow stamps from the Cut & Paste collection from MME
More Misc Me and stamping. I got to use up some of the old letter stickers by Making Memories, that have been sat in my drawer forever and a day. The red chevron stripe paper is by Bazzil Basics and I dug out some Echo park for the grey panel behind the strip of pictures
I printed my journaling on some regular copy paper and backed it with some cardstock to give it a bit of strength. I used the barcode that was on the LYB black chevron paper for some added interest, not much gets wasted in my craft room.
I hope you find time to play along, remember you have the whole month of April
