Artbooking Layout Series – Freedom 1

Sweet Baby Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH Artbooking Cricut Collection, CTMH Cardstock (Sweet Leaf, White Daisy, Cotton Candy, & Black), unknown patterned paper, Kaisercraft Rhinestones, CTMH Cotton Candy ink, CTMH stamp set, Tattered Angels Pearl Glitter Mist, and Zig Markers.

I used the basic layout from the right side of the Freedom Layout but changed up the title (I used Sweet from page 85).  You can’t see from my picture but I used Glitter Mist on the white overlay and it looks so pretty in person.  I added a stamping to the background of the stars.  I can’t remember the stamp set I used but any background or pattern would work.  The punched out green star also fit perfectly within the overlay to add focus to my title.

Chapstick Holder – Purse

Chapstick Purses by Wendy Kessler

Challenges: Crafty Creations Challenges – Make it Yourself, Die Cuttin’ Diva’s – Anything Goes (purse diecut), Simon Says – Anything Goes

These little purses were so quick and easy to make.  There wasn’t even much trial and error.  By using CCR (Cricut Craft Room) I was able to see the size of the inside of the purse and know how big I should make it so that it fit.  I was surprised at how perfectly it worked out!

CTMH Buzz & Bumble Layout by Wendy Kessler

I adjusted the left page to suit my photos.  I will also be using 4×6 flip flaps on each page to add more photos over the 4×6 pics.  I wasn’t sure about this Workshop Kit but I am so glad I changed my mind and bought it because I love my layouts!

Stephanie Layout by Wendy Kessler

Love this one for an 8×10 photo!  I stamped the entire background with the flowers.  I also eliminated the journaling box and moved the embellishments over to allow more room for the photo.

Wonderful Beautiful Day Layout by Wendy Kessler

 

If you look close you will notice that I flipped this page around 180 degrees.  I will admit it was an oops but it didn’t matter since I was using it as a 1-page layout so it didn’t need to match up with my first page.

Kraft Containers by Wendy Kessler

These containers were trickier than they should have been.  I would recommend using Liquid Glass for your adhesive.  It holds well and doesn’t take long to dry.  Make sure you plan it out before adhering the paper and do a double check.  The paper overlaps if you cut according to the directions and there is a seam on the container; you will want to make sure that these are somewhat close so you are left with a nice “front” to decorate.  If you want them to look like the picture, it will be easiest to glue the scallop piece and the large piece together first, then to the container since the scallop goes underneath but you want to make sure you leave enough room so that you don’t overlap onto the opening.  Tip: When inking, do not ink the ends that will overlap (if you ink it will draw attention to the seam).  I used these for Mother’s Day gifts.  They could work for teachers gifts or just about any occasion.

Fabric Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s Technique Blog Hop where we are focusing on FABRIC.  If you are starting here just continue until you make your way back.  If you have already started, you should be coming from Stephanie Chumbley.

Picture Perfect Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: Sophia Paper Packet (retired), Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, Chantilly Textiles, Harvest Baker’s Twine, Felt Alphabet – Keepsake (retired), Sparkle Flourishes, and Bitty Sparkles.

I have to admit when Close to My Heart came out with these fabrics I really wasn’t sure what to do with them.  It’s great that they coordinate with different papers but I have a feeling they will last me a very long time.  For my layout I used the fabric to create the butterflies and flowers.  The butterflies are roughly 2″ squares of fabric cut with pinking shears on the sides.  To create the flowers I first cut a long strip (about 1/2″) of fabric.  Then I twisted it so the pattern was mostly on the outside and from there I twisted it further into a circle.  As I did the final twisting, I used 1″ glue dots to adhere it to my paper flower.  The inside of the small flower is a strip of fabric tied in a loose knot with the ends cut off.  At first, I planned to use knots with the ends but I didn’t like it so I used those (they look like little bows) in the upper corner of my layout.  I used this sketch from Scrappy Sketches.

And here are some closeup pics:
