Scrapbooking with Collection Kits

Good morning, everyone. I have been taking some time to get my own scrapbooking up-to-date and have discovered that a quick way to do that is to use a Collection Kit. What I like about these collections is that not only do they come with several papers but that they also include Sticker Sheets (both Element and Alphabet Stickers). I had a lot of photos of winter scenes so for the following layouts I used "I Love Winter" by Echo Park.

The collection also included two sheets of journal cards. See below how I used these cards:

Layout #1

Layout #2

Layout #3

I will probably add a few more embellishments later but these three layouts were quick and easy and I still have enough paper left to do another layout in the future.

So, if you have a lot of photos of one theme to scrapbook, think about using a Collection Kit from one of the many manufacturers that Sheila carries. My next task is to get all of my Christmas photos scrapbooked using the "Christmas Delivery" Collection from Carta Bella.

Have a good week.

Monster Love

Good Morning Everyone,

Want to share with you my card for our Feb 14 event. You will be making 4 cards that day. You can register here. I am using the Monster stamp and die set from MFT. They are so cute and make great kids cards. I used distress inks and my Misti to do my stamping. I used the Crystal Nuvo drops to add a little bling. Hope you can join us.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Winter day on the lake!

Happy Friday! I am back with another quick and simple card. This stamp from Penny Black is very versatile, easy for a quick card but I can think of many other things to do with this scenery stamp.
It is called "on the lake" and you can find it HERE !! 
I stamped it on a white piece with black versafine and then with a blending tool I added some tumbled glass and faded jeans, leaving some white spaces. The whole piece is added on a white base, sentiment from MFT ,essential sentiments. That's all, super quick!
                  Hope you like it, till next time, Anja

Loving Life

Good Morning Everyone,

Want to share with you our next project for Art Journaling class.    We will be using Gelatos from Faber Castell to  paint our background  and also  using them with our stencils. I used the flourish stencil from Tim Holtz and the other is a stencil from Prima called Bamboo. The heart is cut out with Tim Holtz's Scribble and Splat die set. I used a Background Script stamp from Kaisercraft and used white embossing powder to make it pop. The Loving Life sentiments comes from Bella BLVD,  Little Bits.
 Hope you will come out and join us. You need to register here. If this is your first time out, no worries, all you would need to bring is an art journal, or mix media paper, small brush and heat gun if you have one. We will supply the rest. If you have Gelatos and would like to bring your own, I used the following colours : watermelon, aqua dolce and kiwi.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.
