April Challenge by Evi

Hello Scrappy friends!  Today I this colorful layout for the April Challenge.  I was challenged to use a lovely stamp available in the shop that reads “May your coffee be strong and your Monday be short.”  A feeling I am sure we have all felt from time to time.  I decided to create my own background paper with it and heat embossed it repeatedly on white card stock paper.  I used black embossing powder cause I wanted to add color and I wanted the embossing to add a resist to my mixed media.

I then took a few colors of blues and aqua colors of inexpensive acrylic paint and add water to have a light wash of color. I did horizontal stripes.  I cut down my paper to be an 11×11 inch square and matted it on a piece of patterned paper from the April 2017 kit from Bella Blvd.

 

 

I then continued to use the elements of the kit to continue scrapping this wonderful photo of my mom and me in our WICKED leggings.  I am a new consultant for LuLaRoe and I am all about the leggings these days, so when we saw leggings being sold we immediately bought two pairs.

I used the cut apart sheet for the added blue element on the page and love what it read, ‘something tells me Im going to cherish you forever.’  I then added the last pieces of die cuts and my last two flairs from the April add on.  The colorful hearts were punched out of the scraps of paper from a previous layout I made this month.

I think I put the stamp to good use.  Think outside the box when it comes to your stamps and create a wonderful background for your next layout.

Till next time,

Evi

Sunday School: Right Now by Evi

Hello lovely scrapbook ladies!  Thank you for joining me for Sunday School blog post.  I am playing with the April 2017 Jelly Bean Scrapbook Kit.  I am scrapping two smaller photos of me and my Doxie, Kobe on a walk recently.  I started out with cutting out the flowers of the Bella Blvd Make Your Mark, Magnifique.  These flowers are large and colorful which is totally my style.

Once I gessoed my card stock, I did the packaging technique with Mint colored mists and yellow.  I then used the current flower cut file, available under the Varsity Team, and cut it on pink card stock for an added layering effect under the flowers.

I used black embossing on the wood veneer from Fancy Pants and made my title “Right Now” pop off the colors of my layout.  I then added one of the words from the Freckled Fawn pack, ‘Amazing’ above my title.  The black pops off of both against the colors of my background.

I then started adding elements from the ephemera pack from Bella Blvd.  I love the flair in the kit, and decided on the yellow ‘She’s Crafty’ flair and nested it on yellow thread.  I also used the yellow swan exclusive piece in my cluster in the lower right area.  Enamel dots from Freckled Fawn were added for color and contrast.  All pieces are available in the April kit.

Thank you for joining me for todays post.  I hope you have had an amazing weekend.  ~Evi
