Wild at Heart Planner with Evi

Hello Clique Kits lovers!  Evi here, and I have a very floral planner spread using the Wild at Heart collection from Cocoa Vanilla in the June 2017 kit.  I love the rich navy colors mixed with the pinks, magenta, mints and corals in the collection.

I used the cut apart sheet for cutting out the perfect sized rectangle needed to fill the entire space in my MAMBI inserts.  My inserts are from my HAPPY planner 365 but I dislike the disc system and punch holes to put in into my Carpe Diem binder from Simple Stories.

The ephemera die cut pack comes in the kit and I picked out all the lovely florals to add the details to my spread.  I wanted to make sure I featured all the rich colors in this collection on this spread.

The butterflies are also a nice detail in this collection.  I wanted to incorporate the small positive affirmation pieces too.  ‘Dream Big’,  ‘This makes me Happy’, and ‘Memories’ add nice text to the layout.

I added in a few details to my week ahead of time with a pink, blue and aqua colored ink pens.  The rest of the space will be added as the week goes on.  I hope you are inspired by my layout and try a version of your own.

Share Your Space with Evi

Hello Scrapbook friends!  It’s Evi and I’m here to share my creative space with all our viewers.  I have been fortunate enough to claim a room in our apartment for years and now a room in our new home.

Lets start off with my desk.  I actually have two identical desk from Ikea and I arranged them in an ‘L’ shape in a corner.  I have two sets of the five draw Alex draws from Ikea as well.  I keep my inverted tripod permanently on one desk that I use for filming my process videos.

All my draws are filled with all sorts of scrapbook supplies like my punches, stamps, inks, mists, glitters, watercolors, wood veneers, markers, acrylic paints, and extra mixed media supplies.  On top I keep all of the ready to use supplies.

Along my long wall, above my desk, I have my collection of art pieces I have collected throughout the years.  I have an obsession with dogs (doxies in particular) and collect colorful pieces that inspire me with I gaze up.

Beside my desk I have stacked cubes from the Recollections line at Micheal’s.  These cubes used to be on top of my shelve when it laid vertically but I have done some recent re arranging.  These draws hold ink for my printer, printer paper, embellishments or sorts and my collection of 12×12 paper.  My Ikea Kallax shelves hold all my albums, paper pads, magazines and photo boxes.

I am also a LuLaRoe consultant and the opposite wall from my desk holds a double installation to house all my inventory for my small business.  Everything is hung according to style and in size order.

My Raskog Cart from Ikea holds all my 6×12 alphas and sticker collections.  I have multiple glues, pastes, gesso, paints and all my mixed media supplies are housed in it.  I love the card cause I can wheel it to and from the side of my desk when needed.  I have my additional tripod always ready to go and my mannequin to run my LuLaRoe business.

On top of my desk I have a fruit basket that holds most of my washi collection.  My Silhouette Cameo and a roll of glitter, a mail holder that contains all my scraps of patterned paper, I have a peg board for more washi and tones of cups and jars holding pens, pencils, paint brushes and palette knives.

I keep small dishes as well to keep the last bits of die cut packs and ephemera in.  Tiny jars hold flair buttons, enamel dots and buttons.

I love my scissors, ATG gun, fine liners and last details readily available.  They all sit close along with with heat dryer, hot glue gun and paper trimmer.

Kobe keeps me company in my office all the time.  There he is, he’s so cute.  Thank you for stopping  by today.

Yearbook: by Evi

Hello Clique Kit friends.  It is Evi with today’s Yearbook; Project Life layout.  I am using the gorgeous May 2017 kit featuring the Pink Fresh Studio Dream On collection.  I am scrapping all my fun photos for this past weekends National Scrapbook Day Expo held in Orlando FL.  I was able to attend with my scrappy friend Katty Miranda.

We were able to meet the lovely Becky Higgins, creator of Project Life, and she was able to autograph a PL card I received from her workshop.  I also tucked behind my ticket from her workshop behind the PL card.  I matted the photo on Fancy, a patterned paper from the collection.

I used the same side for the card I made in the second row and used a piece from the die cut pack.  I used the puffy stickers on the outside of the page protector.

I also met the very creative Wendy Vecchi, from Ranger.  I cut our picture out in a circle to fit in the center of this coupon card I received that has scrapbook supplies all around the 4×6 card. It worked perfectly.  She signed that tag sticking out the top while playing with Distress Oxides.

The kit also included a water resistant cut apart from Kaiser Crafts. I used the one saying Thank you for being a friend, and used my new purchase of Distress Oxide inks and created the lovely wash of color on the card.

It was an amazing day at the Expo.  It is my third year going to it and I will continue to enjoy if for years to come.  Hope you enjoyed my Project Life Layout.

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
