Happy Travels | Shimelle | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I am sharing a new layout with you using some Shimelle products now available in the Sassy store!

I have recently been on an amazing 4 week holiday to Europe and the UK and so I have oodles of travel photos to scrapbook! 

So I decided on some awesome travel themed products from the Sassy store to create a few projects and share them with you! I have mostly used a couple of different products from some of the Shimelle collections!

The Crate Paper Journey cork embellishments add some great texture to this layout!

A Grateful Heart Mixed Media Layout by Farrel Tailor

Hello and happy Thursday! 
I'm back today with another layout using some more of Vicki Boutin's Mixed Media range.

As I have 3 boys, it's very rare that I get to create a girly page so I was super excited to create this here it is.

I will give you a quick run down on what I used but you can click on my video below to see how I created this layout.

The papers I used are from the Prima Rose Quartz range - Midnight Beauty and Grateful Heart.
I started off by applying a light coat of Dina Wakley Media Clear Gesso  all over Midnight Beauty and dried with my heat gun.

To create my photo mount layers and title I cut out various sections from Grateful Heart patterned paper.

I then used Vicki Boutin Mixed Media Stamp and Stencil set - Floral and black archival ink to stamp onto my background.

I next use the Vicki Boutin Art Crayons to draw onto my mat and using a wet paint brush I mixed the crayon so that it turned to a watercolour paint and apply to my layout. 

Once that's dry, adhere my photo mount and die cuts from the Vicki Boutin Ephemera Die Cuts with Gold Foil. I also use the art crayons to add some colour to my Prima Flowers - Kimberly.

Once I have adhered everything I then use some Diamond Glitter Glue to highlight the die cuts. And there you have it another layout done.

I hope I have inspired you to create this weekend and remember all the products used are linked back to the store.

I hope you enjoy the video and until next time - Stay Creative xx

'Life is Lovely' By Kylie Kingham

Hi friends!
I'm back with another layout using the beautiful 'Hazelwood' collection by American Crafts.
I've really enjoyed working with this collection this month.

I so loved the check print paper! Teamed with the florals it reminded me of a Summer picnic! I added in a length of string over one of the seams for texture.

I kept the embellishments pretty minimal for this layout but added in some large text.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects this month! I can't wait to get started on July's.
Until next time,

Pocket Pages with Agnus | Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'You Rock'

Hi again :) I'm back with another pocket pages share using the fun using Cocoa Vanilla Studio's 'You Rock' collection.

As I showed in my earlier post, the colours and patterns in this collection are not only perfect for all those boy memories but also work really well with everyday photos too. 

This is a mid-month post, so I have skipped my usual title card and instead started the page off with a photo and a filler card using a few enamel dot shapes with the awesome Days of the Week clear stamps from the store. In case you missed it, I also showed how versatile these stamps are on a full sized scrapbook layout in my previous post.

I used a few different photo sizes this week and liked the way it allowed me to add more pattered paper and I creating a simple pocket gave a place for some of the ephemera I collected from the month. 

I layered a couple of the larger die cut ephemera pieces to help balance out the square shaped photo and used one of the washi strips to ground my journal strip. 

Mixing in more of the fun patterns for the second part of the page -  and using little pops of colour on each photo to lead the eye across the page. 

Adding an embellishment cluster is always a good way to add interest to a photo with negative space, and I used a mix of die-cut ephemera, stamping onto a washi strip and a couple of enamel shapes.

I often look for printed phrases that will help to tell the story, and backing these onto contrasting patterns I was able to create some quick and easy filler cards.

All Boy | Bella Blvd Alex Collection | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I am sharing my 7th and final layout created using the Bella Blvd Alex collection!

The background paper I have used is quite busy so I decided to cover it over with some white cardstock but before I did, I used my Cuttlebug to cut out 3 circles. I made sure to cut them out from the very centre of the paper so that I could use the entire paper as a background without anyone knowing its been hacked into!   

I cut more circles from the other papers as well to balance it all out. I used the alphabet stickers from the 12 x 12 sticker sheet to create my title, I decided to place the title following the shape of one of the circles.

I took the Cool Kid wood veneer and backed it with some patterned paper so it didn't get lost on the white cardstock.

A couple more stickers were added as well as some puffy star stickers and a few small wood veneer to further embellish my page! 

Thanks so much for stopping by the Sassy Scrappers blog today!

Happy creating!
