My Creative Scrapbook April Main Kit

My Creative Scrapbook Main Kit for April.

One word.  Pretty!

I added Shimmerz Paint In Vibez- Rolling in the Hay

Lots of little stamped images and text....

Lots of machine stitching....

I pulled apart the flowers so they were less dimensional.....and there's three flowers there from 1 flower!

Be back soon with some Project life Spreads to share!

My Creative Scrapbook Process Video.

Here is a little about my process with a My Creative Scrapbook Kit.

I used the Main Kit this month.
(Click the image to take you directly to the Kit Page )

Once I open my box of goodies each month I go through the papers, finding things that go well together.

I have in mind that I would like to get at least 3 Pages and a Project Life Spread out of the kit.

I open all the packets and take a look at the embellishments....this helps me envisage the Photos I might have, or the topics I might scrap.

I find at least 4 different coordinating patterned papers that will suit my PL spread and cut each sheet in halves.

Then I take the halves and cut it into three 6x4 pieces.  I add in a 1/2 sheet of cardstock to break up the pattern.

I start laying out the spread and cut 4 pieces in halves again to make 8 3 x 4 pieces for the centre row.

and then I go through the die cut pack adding things that will suit first up.

From there I add photos and embellish.

See the video for how I work on one Layout, and go about mapping out a few others....

Thanks for stopping by.

With the cards this time, I added some stincilled dots and chevrons with coloured distress Inks that 
co- ordinated with the papers

Stitch on top of the Papers Images to create the feeling of depth

Make tags and wrap hole with string for texture

Add an eyelet ribbon and string, to a tag cut from Printed Paper.

So week four.....DONE!!!
