I’m so excited to finally share what I have been working on!
My NEW class “Papercrafting Projects for All Seasons” is now available for FREE at Scrapbook.com!
This class combines all of my favorite things; scrapbooking, papercrafting, gift ideas, parties, holidays, and seasons! I poured my heart and soul into this project with the hope that it will inspire YOU to get creative, too!
Come check it out! I’d love to see you there!
Happy Friday, Friends! I’m back with another video featuring the second layout I created using the Close to My Heart January 2019 Kits.
Each monthly kit includes two double-page layouts with the instructions, stickers, die cuts, and sheet protectors to complete those layouts. I used most of the stickers and die cuts on the layout I posted on Monday. So, for today’s page I decided to create my own quilled flower embellishments using the Decorative Borders Thin Cuts Dies. Watch the video to see how!
HOORAY FOR TODAY
I also used the title as inspiration for all of the circles across the top of the page — I wanted it to feel like a party! Can you see where I added stamping, embossing, and dimensional dots, as well?!
I’ll be back towards the end of this month with my layouts using the February kit. I hope to see you then!

Have you ever tried using a stencil in your scrapbooking? Several of the Echo Park Paper
collections come with coordinating stencils and I decided to incorporate one on today’s scrapbook page using the Coffee collection
I tend to shy away from complicated mixed media techniques, but love how easy it is to use the stencils to create interesting background effects! If you can spread butter on a piece of toast, then you will be a pro at this technique.
To get this look, all I did was place the stencil on the background paper, and then use a flat card (an old gift card works great!) to spread Vicki Boutin Gold Glaze
through the openings. Allow the glaze to dry completely and you are ready to build your design.
Other ways you can use the stencils to add pattern to your pages would be to spray mist across the stencil, or use a dauber or sponge and an ink pad to blot on color through the openings.
I used gold mist in other areas of the layout to repeat the color of the gold glaze
I extended the stenciled gold glaze down below my photo block. I love the way it looks peeking out between my journaling strips.
Give the stencils a try! I think you will discover just how fun and easy they are to use.
See you again soon!
