SpiegelMom Scraps Design Team: Stitching in your Traveler’s Notebook

Aloha!!!

I am stitching in my Traveler’s Notebook. I am creating texture, using lots of layers.

IMG_8371.jpg

Yes, I even stitched on my photo. It looks so cool too.

IMG_8368

I added this small cluster on the bottom of the photo with the title. I used different tile alphas for a fun element. mixing chipboard from Maggie Holmes and a mix of Fairy Garden and Sparkle Power sequins together.

IMG_8373

This phrase strip at the top with more sequins really helps draw your eye down the side at all the stitching and this gorgeous photo of Mt. Rainer.

IMG_8375.jpg

I can never get tired of this view!! It is amazing!! And this view is just down my street. I feel lucky that I can see this beauty all the time, unless it’s cloudy. the grandeur of Mt. Rainer is so palpable when you see it in person. As a person you feel so small, that we are only a small part of this whole wide world!! Some Deep Stuff, right?!

IMG_8370.jpg

I love mixing an old Maggie Holmes sticker from Open Book with the Chasing Dreams products. Look at all this great stitching. I stitched all these layers on the American Crafts White Cardstock and then used red line double stick tape to adhere it to the inside of my insert.

IMG_8364.jpg

For the top page, I added vellum with gold roses over the patterned paper. I love seeing all that pattern through the hazy vellum. All these layers were stitched on as well.

IMG_8374.jpg

I added sequins inside the top layer to make a shaker pocket layer. I used the same mix of Fairy Garden and Sparkle Power.

IMG_8366.jpg

I layered some of the flat stickers and the puffy stickers on top with some sequins. You just can’t have enough sequins. I adhere them with Tombow Mono Multi glue.

All the texture on this spread makes me so happy!! You can watch my process video on the SpiegelMom Scraps Youtube Channel or below:

Check out their Instagram accounts and see what they made this month with their July Kits.
Now for the fun part where I get to show you what I made.
I am using the Main July Pool Party Kit. It features Elle’s Studio Live.Laugh.Love Collection. Really Bright and Colorful, I really wanted to highlight that.
Here are some close ups and see all the goodness,
CK Pep Rally July Sneak Peek
I decided that I wanted to use the labels from the branding strip. I color matched them with this stripped pattern paper. I popped them up on dimensional foam to add interest.
IMG_7984
I used plain white card stock so that I could add media on the background and have it work with all the colors from the July Main Kit.
IMG_7985
I used multiple photos on this layout. My photos were also really bright. Using the white background really made all the color pop. This photo of a parrot fish is so cool. These pictures were taken at our local Zoo.
IMG_7987
I created a cut file with my own brush script and scanned it into my computer. It is really easy and really fun. This title is perfect and created specially for this layout. “One Man’s Trash is another’s Art.”
IMG_7988
This trash was taken right from Puget Sound and collected, then sorted and used to create these really cool and huge sculptures of the zoo’s wildlife. See my kid’s standing under the big Puffin. That is my kid’s favorite zoo animal. I used a pen to doodle sketch faux stitching lines outlining the cut file. I also colored around the cut file with different colored markers to match the colors near them.
This blue marker looks really cool with the blue water color peeking from under the photo’s edges.
IMG_7990
I made sure to use puffy stickers and enamel dots in the same color area. I really wanted a look almost similar to how Irit Landgraf gets on her layouts.
IMG_7991
IMG_7993
 I finished off with Black color shine drops to make the color pop more. This layout is one of my favorites this summer. I love how the story and the photos, and the collection really work together to document my own story.
Here is one final look at this layout.
CK Pep Rally One Mans Trash Staged
I have a scrapbooking process video where you can watch me create this layout.

Clique Kits July Challenge

ck-jul17-mainkit_2_orig.jpg

Aloha!!

Today over at the Clique Kits Blog we are sharing the July Challenge. The theme this month is Anything Goes. We are also using up some of our Add On products from the Clique Kits Store.

It is always fun for me to add old stash with my new stuff. It helps me get excited about using all the product I have so I make good use out of it.

This is the layout I made using both the Main Pool Party July Kit featuring the Live Laugh Love Collection by Elle’s Studio and the Traveler’s Notebook Pool Party July Kit featuring Ain’t Life Grand by Pretty Little Studio.

CK Anything Goes Change is in the hair.jpg

This mixed media layout was so fun to make. I mixed my watercolors with my gelatos around many various sized circles to get a really cool look. I used some Shimmerz Dazzlerz and purple acrylic paint with my finger to help add some more pink around the circles. I doodled around each of the circles to make them pop. I also used a stamp set from Pink Fresh Studios that I got as an add on. there are some circle elements as well as some fun phrases.

IMG_7691.jpg

I scattered some of the acrylic Elle’s Studio pieces in the circles. I added a ton of enamel dots, some were from this month’s kit but some were from last month’s kit too.  I wished I could have used the Bella Blvd Stars though too.

IMG_7692.jpg

By adding the acetate paper in the inside the main circle it really added some extra color to this already colorful layout. I really just wanted this layout to be really playful. I am documenting when I colored my hair dark purple last month. I love that I can be really playful with my hair and have a little fun. I love expressing myself through hair colors and things I wear.

IMG_7685.jpg

I used the 4×6 cards for my layers behind the photo. By keeping them really natural it helped my photo really stand out.

IMG_7686.jpg

I added the title in a semi circle around the big circle. I did a play on words with the title. I wrote Change is in the hair instead of Change is in the air. I used the Copper Pink Fresh Studio Alpha’s from the June Kit.

IMG_7690.jpg

Lastly I scattered some die cuts from the main kit. I also added a Maggie Holmes fringe heart near my title. I love the idea of the butterfly transforming like I am transforming my look to fit my personality. These butterflies are so beautiful too.

IMG_7694.jpg

I hope you head over to the Clique Kits Blog and see what the other Design Team Members have made with their Kits and Add ons for the July Challenge. I hope you play along too. You have all month to get your layout or project done and tag us.

Clique Kits: Take Note Thursday

IMG_5787

 

Aloha!! I am taking on frames in Traveler’s Notebook on the Clique Kits Youtube Channel. I am using their June Kit which features the Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart Collection. I also am mixing in a bit of the May Traveler’s Notebook Kit with my June Main Kit.

Here are some close up pics of my layout.

CK Take Note Thursday Close up Footer

I filled in some of the frames with pattern paper, I wanted to layer embellishments in them and highlight the embellishments.

IMG_6879

I used both chipboard frames and the die cut frames from the embellishment pack.

IMG_6881

I really love how the June Main kit and the May TN kit work together.

IMG_6884

I loved using the exclusive Printables from the June Main kit inside all the frames.

IMG_6883

I am using a square photo to document. I am working on a Traveler’s Notebook that I started in September 2015, when I was trying to do a TN instead of Project Life to document our month. This photo is showing some watercoloring I was working on to work on my Website logo. I love that tactile why of designing things. Instead of just working digital I wanted to create something with watercolor and then digital alter it to hit in the space I want.

IMG_6882

I love all the layered elements on this page.

Here is a look at the full Traveler’s Notebook Spread:

SpiegelMom Scraps Youtube Channel: Twenty Five Years Later

Aloha!!

This month we are inspired by the 80s and the 90s over on the SpiegelMom Scraps Design Team. It is really fun to go back in time and think about all the things we loved and things we are glad to leave behind about our younger years.

This layout I decided to document my favorite band growing up. Thankfully I had amazing parents who put up with all the music and posters on my walls, Because My music player was definitely on repeat.  Well my favorite band is celebrating being a band for 25 years and going on a world tour.

I used internet pictures from back then and now and scrapped them.

IMG_6770

It was a bit difficult because they used lots of yellows and oranges. I took on the challenge and made a monochromatic layout.

IMG_6769

 

I finished off with Just Beachin’ It and Black Tie event Sequin mixes and it was the perfect finish to my 8 1/2 x 11 layout.

IMG_6768Twenty Five years Later sneak with watermark

 

I also finished my layout with some I cork U cork hearts. It added a nice texture and neutral color to this very colorful layout.

Clique Kits Design Team Layout: Shine Like the Stars

IMG_5787.jpg

Aloha!! I hope your day has been delightful! We have had glorious weather the past couple of weeks here in the Pacific Northwest Area, and we have been taking advantage of it by spending a lot of our time outside. Getting our garden ready, doing some much needed spring yard work done, also just soaking up some of those Vitamin D rays and playing with our puppy.

Today I want to share a layout I made using the June Aquarelle Kit from Clique Kits which features the Cocoa Vanilla Studios Wild at Heart Collection. It’s a gorgeous kit. It’s been really hard to know what to use first because I want to use it all.

I started off by cutting some of the exclusive cut files from this month with some from earlier and past kits.  I also roughly sketch out my own sketch on some lined notebook paper. I do this when I have an idea of how I want the layout to look like. This helps me just into the groove of creating too.IMG_6145

I then used acrylic paint that I watered down and created a background that was ombre, I wanted it to look like a night sky going from black to blue to purple. I splattered some Shimmerz Acritonez in white and Navy to look like stars.

I glued down my cut files and then stitched lines from the top to the layout to the stars. I wanted it to look like the stars were hanging from the sky. I had a small issue with the tension in my thread so I had to compromise and only do a few lines. I then strung some of the May Exclusive Sequins on some string and hung it in one spot. It ended up being a really cool element.

IMG_6178.jpg

I layered some embellishments up at the top so I could cover some of the really loose threads and layered some of the kits exclusive printables. The black tags from the Traveler’s Notebook printable are my favorite.

IMG_6185

I added the middles of the star cut file on pop dots and scattered them around the layout. There were some copper stars on the Alpha from Pink Fresh Studio in the kit and I used those too. This really tied down the concept of a night time starry sky.

IMG_6182.jpg

I also used the Wild at Heart glitter enamel dots around the layout with some of the yellow flower sequins. I was hoping the yellow flowers would look more like stars.

IMG_6181

I simply layered some of the papers behind my 4×6 photo of my kiddos on their first day of school. I kept the layers really simple because there is a lot going on on the layout. Also I realized once I had all the cut files down I almost had no room for the photo at all. OOPs. I hate when I do that too. I really didn’t want a double page spread at all, so I just decided to cover more of the star cut file than I would have liked. In the end it all worked out fine.

IMG_6189.jpg

IMG_6187.jpg

I used some of the April’s kit Elles Studio white alphas with the copper ones from this kit and made a mini title not eh photo itself. I even stitched through the white alphas. I really love how that looks.

IMG_6180.jpg

I wrote the journalling under the photo and kept it nice and simple. Other than it being the first day of school there wasn’t anything more to this photo anyway.

I finished the layout off with some gold and white Heidi Swapp Color Shine. I like the way the gold looks like stars!!

Here is my finished layout.

I love Pep Rally day, I love seeing everything everyone else has made. It really inspires me to finish my kit up and inspires me in the next kit.

Here is the layout I made for the Pep Rally.

Ck May Pep Rally Footer

This layout went through the ringer until it ended out like this!! I know I have said this before and I will keep saying it, I love the journey you go through when you make a layout.

I started out by using watered down acrylic paint on the resist speciality paper by KaiserKraft in the main kit.  I sprayed a few spritzes of Shimmerz spray in Eggnoggin. It left this really pretty purple with hints of gold on it.

Once I added my bottom row of layered paper things started to change for me. I thought the purple would look amazing next to the soft mint greens and coral/pink colors of the Pink Fresh Studio Dream On Collection.

The problem was with the gold and the other colors, the blue and the yellow. I just didn’t like it. But in true mixed media style I kept going. Kept working the page, it always look crazy before it looks good , right?!!

IMG_5632.jpg

I stitched in a zig zag pattern with my sewing machine. Added some squares with pop dots and some left over hearts from the exclusive cut file.

I still didn’t like the big blob of purple and gold. I then grabbed my white gesso, which really isn’t white. It’s creamy. Mixed with the paint and spray, this color was quite different from what I was thinking or liking. Which I will say is strange, I generally like lots of colors and try to work with what ends up on my page. I think with mixed media you need to have this mentality most of the time. There are just sometimes though, when you need to know when to throw in the towel. So … I threw in my towel.

The problem is, I really liked the stitching and layers at the bottom.

IMG_5629.jpg

So I took a piece of white card stock and cut it down to cover most of the paint and gesso. I am sad that I couldn’t use that resist paper too. It looked really cool with just the paint. There always is next time, right?! This is what the journey of learning with mixed media is about. Learning from your mistakes!!

I mirrored the layering I had on the bottom up on the top of my page.

IMG_5630.jpg

Using some of the same elements on the top as the bottom, like those cut file hearts, and other exclusives from the Traveler’s Notebook Kit. Then I stitched the same zig zag stitch on the top.

IMG_5723.jpg

For my photo, I took leftover bits of patterned paper from my kit and layered then under. I have lots of layering so I only used and little bit of layering. I really wanted to focus to be on the layering on the top and bottom of the page.

I used one of the journaling printables for my journaling. I layered a couple of the smaller squares from the patterned paper, along with one of those cut file hearts. I added a puffy sticker from the kit and it looked really good.

IMG_5722.jpg

I added one of the Pink Fresh Studio mirror stickers over the Dreams on the cut apart cards on the patterned paper. It just seemed fun.

IMG_5721.jpg

I ended the layout with some Razzle-dazzle Berry Shimmerz Vibez in Splatters throughout my layout. I like the way that added some purple without being really bright or over the top.

IMG_5631.jpg

This layout ended up being one of my fave that I have made lately, maybe it was the journey I went on. Maybe it is just because I had to work so hard to turn it into beautiful or maybe it’s just because it is soft, dreamy and so pretty!!

I also took the time to journal about this journey I have been taking throughout this past year or so, to better myself in the scrappy world. I really feel like I have changed in a good way to make my layouts better, and true to me. I have really worked hard to learn new skills and make my layouts better on the screen. You can have an amazing layout but if you share a dark and blurred photo of that layout, nobody will notice your work.

I love scrapbooking!! It truly has saved me in so many ways. To give back I want to learn to be better. To have something I can appreciate later in life, something my family will be proud to look through and have to share with future generations.

I feel so honored to be a part of this community and to finally have a chance to learn and grow in a new way with the scrapbooking design teams I am now a part of. They have inspired me to be a better me!!

Clique Kits: Art Studio

Aloha!!! Are you like me and have an iNSD hangover? I didn’t even scrap as much as I wanted to either?! LOL!!  It sure was fun though! My biggest highlight was meeting up with some local Scrap Gals ladies and chatting and doing some scrapping together. There is just something really fun about connecting with people in the flesh who love the things you do. The extrovert in me was jumping up and down knowing I am finding my tribe here in Washington and really connecting to this area.

Here is a pic from this weekend!!

IMG_5391

I can’t wait to get together with the ladies again.

Yesterday I felt the iNSD flow into this week with a blog post I had go live on the Clique Kits Blog. I am using the Sorbet May Kit, which has the Pink Fresh Studio Dream On Collection.

18010946_656661547852017_8949764247707144646_n

Here is a sneak peek of my double page layout for their May Challenge which was to use lots of gold, mixed media and the exclusive sketch and Cut File designed by Design Team Member Maryam.

ck_may17_sketch.png

IMG_5427

I used the cut file with my sketch pens on the Silhouette Cameo, this feature is so much fun!! If you haven’t tried it, you really need too.

I used lots of exclusive printables that are available through the kit club. This month they are designed by Maryam and match the kit really well and super cute!!

There are also are printables for the new Traveler’s Notebook Kit Subscription  that started this May.  When you subscribe to the Main Kit and add the Traveler’s Notebook subscription you get a discount on your shipping price as well. There are options for getting a 6 month subscription or a 3 month subscription with the Traveler’s Notebook Kit and it coordinates with the Main kit as well.

Don’t forget too, if you use my code Hannah10 you can get  10% off the add ons in the store!!

I hope you have an inspiring week, my scrappy friends!! I will see you around!!

SpiegelMom Scraps May Blog Hop: Meet the Sparklers

18156212_10212588596734029_2036848032168402242_o

Aloha!! We are starting a new month ad it is exciting!! Today on my blog I have something super special. I am joining in with all of the new SpiegelMom Scraps Design Team for a blog hop to get to know all the Sparklers. There are so may new and talented ladies on the Team this year. I can’t wait to get to know them!!

Like all of the first of the month blog hops, make sure you check out each blog post and comment for a chance to win a store credit of $20 from Jody. At the end of my post I will have the line up so you can follow along the hop and if you lose your way you can always come back here or the first post at the SpiegelMom Scraps Blog.

I am so thankful and excited to be apart of the Sparklers team again!! This team is so amazing and it really feels like I found my tribe being among all of them. I look forward to growing this year, learning this year and pushing myself even more this year. Trying some new things and perfecting more of the things I love to do as well.

IMG_4497

This spring I really have felt called by media again. The fun you have when you get messy is like being a kid again. Saying that though my style has changed so much since I did a bunch of media a couple of years ago. It is all about playing and experimenting. Knowing not every thing is amazing but taking that knowledge and making something better the next time. Pushing the envelope of what feels comfortable. I love this growth in mixed media. You learn so much about yourself.

This Blog Hop is all about learning more about each other. I feel like doing mixed media requires you to bare your soul and put everything on the line. When it pays off it feels so good. But you also see the beauty in the journey that you take emotional as you create as well.

For this hop I wanted to create a currently type of spread. I am always thinking to myself that I want to do one, but rarely do it. Maybe it’s because I really have a hard time picking one thing that I have to love. I love so many things and always have so many answers. There is something though for taking a moment to say, this is where my mind is at right now. The real fact is next month’s right now won’t be the same.

I decided to use a Traveler’s Notebook as my canvas today.  It’s a mixed media Traveler’s Notebook that I have from past Sparkler Beth Soler’s Esty Store. It’s so nice and think, perfect far adding lots of media and heavy mediums.

I pulled out a bunch of new Shimmerz products that I have recently gotten from the SpiegelMom Scraps Store to use. I wanted to challenge myself and use sprays, paste-eez, and acri-tonez altogether.

I also printed out a huge Traveler’s Notebook page size picture of myself from Easter. I dressed up wearing an old dress I bought when we lived in Hawaii. It’s flowing and has tons of flowers and trebling markings on it. It’s perfect on a spring and summery day. I don’t really want to forget about Hawaii so I love that I can wear it and remember all the memories from walking on the beach with this dress on, or eating a nice dinner with my husband in it.

I started off using a 3×4 Amy Tan Stencil to draw triangles on the page. This stencil is my favorite stencil. I love to use my pen to outline the pattern and create a different look depending how I use it.

Next grabbed the Shimmerz Acri-tonez paint in Jade and painted swathes in a few different spots. This is a cool way to add something dramatic but in moderation. I add plus signs in copper acrylic paint with a silkscreen. The metallic color against the bright color of the Acri-tonez really makes the color pop off the page.

IMG_5061

After adding more acrylic paint to the page, and a wood veneer piece I want to add to my page later, I pull out my stencil again. I use the same one and try to lie it up almost straight. I added some Shimmerz Coloringz in Pink Stilettos to some Salt of the Earth Shimmerz Paste-eez and applied it throughs the stencil. Some of the triangles in the paste-eez were right over the drawn triangles and some were slightly off of it. I really love the dimension from the paste-eez. I also added some paste-eez with my palette knife across the page.

IMG_5086

I stamped around the page with an Ali Edwards Week In the Life Stamp and ink. The fact that it is imperfect is really fun and unique. I also added some die cut flowers and stickers from the Cocoa Vanilla Wild At Heart Collection. I am digging the colors in this collection right now. I am having a really hard problem not using that collection for everything I create on my desk right now.

IMG_5088.jpg

I placed a bunch of Hey Kiddo Sequins throughout the spread. Those little magenta flowers are adorable. They also match perfectly with my dress.

IMG_5087

I used a full size 3X8 size photo or so to fit the Traveler’s Notebook page. I wanted it to be all me. Adding that painted wood veneer piece really adds interest to my page. Also I really like to bulk up my pages. I really don’t let the fact that things are heavy or thick stop me.

IMG_5085.jpg

To finish off my other side I added a die cut at the bottom of the page and a rubber charm with another die cut watercolor flower.

IMG_5089.jpg

One of my new favorite tools is my gold mini DIY stapler. It’s gold, so that makes it awesome but also the little tiny staples add just the right amount of metal to projects. I just about use it every time I create now.

SMS page 2 footer

Now I did this super fun and beautiful page, but I still wanted to add a currently list of things I have been digging. I use a pocket page card from Citrus Twist, in the pocket page kits.

I did all my journaling on the card and attached it to the next page with a thin piece of washi tape. I added tape to both the front and back side so in the future I can flip the journaling card and add more journaling. I love this concept about Traveler’s Notebook and being able to keep adding things to the pages.

I also used a strip of patterned paper, a sticker and a die cut to the page to finish it. I kept it really simple but pretty.

SMS Full Footer2

Just in case if it’s a bit too hard to read my journaling, this is what I am currently loving!!

Loving: Mixed Media.. I have been itching to pull out my messy things and play. I also have been loving the Traveler’s Notebook size.

Reading: Rick Yancey, The Infinite Sea. This is book number 2 of the 5th Wave series. Even though it really has taken me forever to read it. I think because it is the second book it just isn’t as gripping as the first. There still is tons of character development. So I just keep reading little bits here and there. (I don’t ever have to worry about never picking up a book, so these periods where a hardly read. next month I could read 3 books in one month.) I have been enjoy the YA dystopian genre, it used to seen so far fetched.

Eating: Curries. I have been craving curries of all kinds, Thai green Curry. Tiki Masala. Peanut curry. Yum Yum. Now I am hungry and want some of that luxurious sauce and hearty potatoes and meat.

Drinking: COFFEE. This never changes. Its almost all I drink, besides water. Sometimes I will drink some coconut water when I am feeling dehydrated. I have also been thinking about Sun Tea, now that the sun is starting to come out. Being from New York and Upstate, I am a purist. Just Tea, no sugar. That is just how it is suppose to be. Though if you want to add fruit, I may be ok with that.

Where: (Geotag) Okay I am just gonna say, I am boring most of the time. I go now where and want to spend most of my time scrapping, even though I can’t because of chores and mom stuff. But I am really boring. I barley go places. LOL. Never thought that would be my life. Thank you introvert hubby, has slowly turned my into a introvert who wants to spend days at home doing nothing but reading, scrapping and watching netflix. I am however thinking about camping and hiking lately. I love that we live somewhere where I can do those things. I am hoping soon we can make a hiking or nature walk trip to Mt. Rainer or around close by.

Picture: I have been spending all weekend working on NSD stuff. I also have been finishing up WITL this past week. I haven’t actually been taking as many pictures as I would like, but then again we aren’t doing a ton of way special things so I just take pictures of things that warm my should or inspire me. I have been thinking maybe I should finish a DSLR class I bought last year. It’s never to late to keep learning.

I hope you have enjoyed getting to know me a bit more. I have enjoyed sharing a bit of myself each time I create a layout. Because really that is who I scrapbook for, telling my story. It just happens I have some amazing family members who show up a lot in my story and I love that too.
