Gypsy | Stephanie

geeklab

Hey loves! Stephanie Gold here today and I AM SO EXCITED to finally get to share a project with you made of the February Bee You Kit. I am seriously obsessed with this kit. So for today’s project I made scrapbook layout with a giant 8 x 10 photo of me and my sweet kitty the day I adopted her.

stephanie-geek-lab-1

My kitten’s name is Gypsy (doesn’t her sweet face just look like a little gypsy??) and this photo is of her and I in the car right before I went to surprise my kids. I kept this layout fairly simple and just let the photo be a major accent. I added some texture to it by hand stitching around the entire photo (I really need to fix my machine because this took me foreverrrrrrrr… but it was worth it lol).

The butterflies are adhered in their centers so the wings could be bent up to look 3 dimensional and I used a bit of black paint splatter to bring in more of the black color. The strip at the bottom is actually the bottom strip of my background pattern paper that I sliced off and adhered. I loved the black and white since my photo is in black and white.

Now this is a super creepy photo because I am eyeing you down so just ignore that part for a moment. ūüėČ I have completely fallen in love with the butterfly rub ons in this kit!!! Here you can see 2 of them that I placed right on top of my photograph. Isn’t that so cool?!

I also finished my layout off with a teeny bit of journaling that I decided to put perpendicular to my page for even more added interest. So what do you think?? Are you ready to dive into your February kits and make some sweet Bee You magic?!! ūüôā

Thank you so very much for stopping by!! Much love everyone!

Xo, Stephanie

Love Always

Hello everybody, happy to see you here… maybe are you relaxing before or after your Christmas celebration! I hope you enjoy this time at the best!

Today, I am here to share a layout I’ve made with the January Hey Sugar kit, that you can find here. This is a wonderful kit full of love. That’s why I’ve decided to create a layout about love… with a little Christmas touch! Read until the end if you want to have the little tutorial I offer you today.

You may notice that I was inspired by the donuts image from the Moodboard of the month.

And some close-ups for you to see the different elements I’ve used from the kit.magalileluc_january_lovealways2

Time for the tutorial now… The following image will show you how I’ve created the little rosette (not sure I am using the right word in English…). Some of you may know what a scoring board is. This tool is very useful to create fold lines, and this can be very useful to do rosettes.

Start by create fold lines every 1/4 in (my paper was cut 12po x 1po to make the big rosette you can see on my layout).magalileluc_january_lovealways5

Then create a tube with the paper you have and apply glue a the top.magalileluc_january_lovealways6

Then you can push on the tube to create the rosette. You will need to maintain it a little while for the glue to work properly.magalileluc_january_lovealways7

And finally, apply one of the perfect sticky button of Crate Paper, you can find in the kit. The glue dot at the back is just the perfect size to create a perfect rosette.magalileluc_january_lovealways8

I hope you will try this and enjoy the process!

Let me know if you do it!
I wish you a Merry Christmas to all of you!avatar

Geek Lab -For the Love of Hand Stitching!

geeklab

Hello creative friends! ¬†It’s¬†Melissa¬†back with you again and today I’m going to share my latest scrappy love! ¬†Before I discovered scrapbooking I was a¬†keen¬†cross stitcher, with projects on the go since I was 14! ¬†What a delight to discover I could combine the two, and my Silhouette Cameo has made the process so much easier and fun!

I recently purchased the Silhouette Pen Attachment (containing three different sized attachments), which enables any type of pen or pencil to be used with the sketch function.  It means I can now draw cut file designs and then hand stitch them.

I decided to create a layout with one of gorgeous exclusive cut files from this month’s Raskog kit. ¬†As soon I saw this one I knew I had to stitch it!

CK_July2016-cuts_01

I rotated it to the right, and then sketched it with a pen.

Adore1

Once it was sketched I left my mat in my Silhouette and then opened another copy of the cut file so I could reduce the size of the three circular shapes. ¬†Then I cut them out on my Silhouette to provide frames. ¬†In hindsight I wouldn’t have made the frames so large.

Adore2

The next step was to use my paper pierce to create hundreds of holes for my stitching.

Adore3

Then came the fun but long process of stitching.  I used colours that were complimentary to the Life Noted collection.  Whilst you can see the black of my pen, its not obvious when you look at the layout in real life.

Adore4

And here is the completed layout, which although it appears clean and simple and quick was a labour of love with all the stitching.  As a busy mum of three I did the stitching in small increments, and I left it on my dining room table so I could come back to it throughout the day.

AdoreA

I embellished with like colours to each of the three circles.  I love the exclusive flair in this beautiful kit!

AdoreC

The Pink Fresh Studio rubber charms had perfect sentiments for my photos.

AdoreE

Love those yellow alpha from the collection too! ¬†I also added a flower that I made with a Sizzix die and my Big Shot Plus. ¬†I added extra embellishments from the Pink Fresh Studio “Felicity” collection that I purchased from the CK store¬†here.

AdoreB

If you haven’t tried the sketch function of your Silhouette you really should, and I highly recommend you purchase the Pen Attachment!

Have a lovely week!

Geek Lab || Big Title, Small photos

geeklab

Good morning, everyone!  Kat here today to share my last layout made with the Northern Lights kit.

I love creating layouts on an angle, but I think they’ve all kinda of started to look the same, so I decided to mix it up a bit for this one. ¬†I began by cutting out my large title using my Silhouette and then adding in lines of small photos around the title.

201620

I backed my title with the primary-colored (blue, red, yellow) papers – with a little green and black – from the kit, since those were the predominant colors in the photos.

I also used some of my scraps to create the patterned paper borders along the top and bottom of the page.  I finished off with some simple mist splatters.  In total, this page probably took me 15 minutes to make Рvery simple indeed!

I think a big title combined with small photos can have a ¬†huge impact…what do you think?

Geek Lab – Embellishments making and layering.

geeklab

Hello Clique Fans, its Leeann here today. I cant wait to share this project with you all. I’m using the January 2016 Alegria Kit featuring Fancy Pants Designs ¬†– Happy Place!

I decide to pull out a few of my punches and team them up with the Fancy Pants Designs Happy Place Ephemera pack, Clique Kits: Journal Cards, flair, hemp twine and a few of the Fancy Pants Designs pattern papers. I wanted to get stuck into these packs and make an embellishment full of dimension and layers.

Let take a peek at my project.

“smile / sweet”

CK Jan GeekLab LP 01

CK Jan GeekLab LP 02

CK Jan GeekLab LP 03

¬†Start by selecting ¬†a few of the tabs, tags, arrows etc from the Fancy Pants Designs ephemera pack and a few from the Clique Kits journal pack and ¬†lay them out. Cut a few 1″ strips from the pattern papers.

CK Jan GeekLab LP 04

Next select a few punches.

CK Jan GeekLab LP 06

Punch out a few shapes from the pattern papers. Now all you need to do is start layering the strips of pattern papers and ¬†punched shapes, adding bits of the ephemera at the same time. Once you are happy with your placement staple. You can add more by cutting the tags in haft, adding glue to the ends and slide them in and under. Don’t forget to fan the layers, use your fingers to lift each piece. So that you see the layers.

CK Jan GeekLab LP 05

and the end result!

CK Jan GeekLab LP 07

I hope today was fun and you go and make a few of these for your next project. They are great on any type of project too. Thank you for popping in today and I look forward in sharing more creative things with you soon!

Geek Lab – Up in the Clouds

Blog Image_Geek Lab

Hello everyone, it’s Danielle here with you today from the geek lab. I have been playing with the clouds¬†cut file and I would like to show you how I used this one. First I cut it with white cardstock and picked my background paper.

I wanted to cover up the solid clouds with with the Webster’s Pages Beautiful Chic vellum. So I traced them with a pencil and cut them out.

I used glue dots to adhere the vellum to the cardstock clouds and this is what it looks like when it’s finished.

I’m so in love with this Pinkfresh Studio collection and I knew right away that I wanted to use this picture for it. It’s taken in Yosemite National Park where I felt like being up in the clouds.

Use Your Hands!

geeklab

Hey everyone!! Jody here on the blog today to share my favorite tool with you. ¬†Can you guess what my all time favorite tool is? ¬† The Cricut, Silhouette, Crop-a-Dile, The Cinch…… Nope! ¬†Although I own and totally¬†love all of those, my favorite tool for creating with is my hands! ¬†Yes, when all else fails ¬†I stick to the basics. ¬†I am so in love with this kit and have already seen our Varsity Design Team girls rock this kit and its die cuts. ¬†That being said, I really wanted to get back to the basics today.

The way I used my hands as a tool for¬†this layout is simply by bending the squares of papers which I trimmed down to 4 3/4″ and 4 1/2″ square. ¬†I bent up the edges of the papers to give them more dimension, which created interesting shadows as well. ¬†I love this look, especially when scrapbooking my Instagram photos! ¬†I also love using contrasting papers and foam adhesives, like the navy and pink I used here. ¬†Here’s my layout ūüôā
