Art Journaling and Scrapping with the Lilly Kit



Over the last few weeks I have gotten really excited about trying art journaling and when I spotted a group doing art journaling mixed with planning and scrapbooking I got so inspired and immediately got a Moleskin diary to set up my own version of the "Life Documented Project" for 2017!  As my Jade kit is well used over the course of 6 projects I have gone back to my Lilly kit for this project, along withe the stencils from the Jade Color Kit.


To do this project you "tip in" a page for doing your art journaling prompt for the week. This week  the prompt is "add photos" and since I am new at the art journaling I thought perfect, I will do what I know, a scrapbook page, with my Lilly kit and do a bit of mixed media background on the the moleskin pages! I tipped in the gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla Make A Wish Daydream paper in a lovely soft blue with a floral B side from the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK).



In this first closeup you can see two photos of my eldest daughter a few years apart, Wow she has grown up so much!! You can see some gorgeous floral ephemera from the Make a Wish collectin tucked in around the photos. This ephemera is from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) Project Life themed kit, and the cute sequin stickers come from the Bits and Pieces kits (BPK) embellishment kit!


Here you can see more of the ephemera and sequin stickers as well as the Best Ever sticker from the cardstock sticker sheet in the PLK.  You can see where I added a little Dried Marigold distress ink under the photos to help tone in with the mixed media background on the planner page. I used a quote which was also part of the weekly prompt.



I had a lot of fun with distress inks for my backgrounds on my planner papers! I also used the chevron and rose stencils from the Jade Color Kit in the backgrounds to add texture and depth!   My prompt uses the adorable multi color alpha and several ephemera from the PLK.



On my second page in the Moleskine I continued the mixed media distressed background and did a bit of journaling and scrapbooking here, using some ephemera and a journal card and doily from the PLK.


On the back side of the tip in I did a little collage piece using a gorgeous image I found.  The crown is from the Pretty Little Pieces in the BPK and Celebrate You comes from the cut apart sheet in the PLK.  I am really excited about this new project and hope to bring more like this here to share with you in the future!!

Some More Fun Cards with the Lilly Kit!


Hello scrappy friends, Cathi back again this week with a few more card shares from the gorgeous Lilly Kits featuring Cocoa Vanilla Make a Wish!  I've done two more cards from this collection and just love the gorgeous colors and fun embellishments in this kit.


For my first card I have used the gorgeous pink watercolor paper Hip Hooray from the Make a Wish collection found in the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK). The Hip Hip Hooray is a cut out from the sheets in the collection found in the Pretty Little Kit (PLK). I have added so many embellishments in the collection: the enamel dots and the flair are from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK), puffy stickers are from the PLK, and the wood pieces and chipboard stickers are from the TSK.  I popped the cut apart sentiment up on foam tape and had a great time arranging and layering the embellishments for a fun birthday card.


For the second card this week I used the soft delicate aqua color paper, Party Dots from the Make A Wish collection. The cake is a cut apart from the PLK along with the ticket ephemera, while the enamel dots are from the BPK and the wooden pieces and chipboard "Celebrate" are from the TSK. These kits are so well coordinated, it makes putting together cards so fun and easy!

Celebration Cards with the Lily Kits


Hello, hello, scrappy friends, Cathi back again this week with a share from my Lilly kits and the gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla Make a Wish collection!!  I was able to create 6 different sets of projects from the Jade kit and I wanted to dig into my Lilly kit and make some fun birthday themed cards.


For my first card I used the gorgeous Blue and White Diamond pattern from the Make a Wish - Daydream paper found in the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK). The bingo card was a die cut from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) and the celebrate cut apart was also from the cut apart sheet in the same kit.  The bow, flair and gems are from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK).  The "Yay" and cake wood pieces are also from the TSK.


For my second card I used the flip side of the Make a Wish Daydream paper, a gorgeous fresh floral design. I added several pieces from the ephemera kit from the PLK. The gems come from the BPK and the wood party hat comes from the TSK.  I love the bright bold graphics in this collection and how all the pieces work together!

I hope you enjoyed my share of these two cards. I have another set coming next week while we wait for the next gorgeous kit to arrive!

Sisters: Travellers Notebook layout with the Scrappery Jade Kits!


 Hello scrappy friends! Cathi back here again with my 6th project using the Jade kits!! I have one full 12x12 left and a few journaling cards and embellies but I have pretty much used up all the kit! I can't believe how many projects I got from the kits, Ronelle really can make some amazing kits!  This week I decided to add a layout into my A6 traveler's notebook. It is my only planner and I use both a hobonichi, and a dot grid notebook from the Cute and Sweet Designs planner kit to be my bullet journal. Bullet journals are so versatile, you can add a scrapbook spread in and amongst your planner pages, so that is just what I have done.  I had this photo of my daughters here on my desk and it just makes me smile, so I had to use it. I have used a ton of items from the kits and even have an interactive area with hidden journaling. This was so much fun to make!



On this first closeup you can see some of the Cocoa Vanilla chevron paper from the main scrapbooking kit (TSK) and the "Oh Hey" speech bubble from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) cut apart papers from Cocoa Vanilla.  I added some of the Kaisercraft pink gems from the TSK and some gold heart sequins from the Pretty Little Pieces in the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK).


Underneath the photo I added some more of the Cocoa Vanilla chevron paper from the main kit and added the "so cute" cut out from the PLK, again adding some pink gems and gold hearts to the layout.


On the opposite page I used the pink cardstock from the PLK as my background, I have layered half of a doily from the TSK and a piece of the Simple Stories Posh chevron paper from the TSK and the Happy Snaps journaling card and label from the Cocoa Vanilla cut apart sheets in the PLK.  I have added the title Sisters from the Kaisercraft alphas from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK) and the gold chevron stickers from the Kaisercraft Metallic Gold Numbers sheet in the PLK.


Hidden underneath the journaling card and label is some secret journaling and design!  I have added a gold heart that was included in the PLK numbers sheet as well as the Kaisercraft stamps included in that kit. I added the glittery love from the Pretty Little Pieces along with the gold heart sequins.  Even the washi tape I used to make my interactive design flap is from the PLK!

I have really enjoyed stretching the Jade kit to bring me right into April! I am looking forward to the next kit coming soon and will be back again next week with more inspiration!! Thank you so much for stopping by to visit!!! If you are interested in subscribing to these amazing kits you can find them in the store HERE!

Mixed Media Canvas with the Scrappery Color kits!


Hello scrappy friends, Cathi back again! This week I am back with something a bit different! I did a mixed media canvas using the Color Kits from the Jade and Nigella kits, along with cutaparts from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) and doilies from the main kit (TSK).  Something a bit different, but I love how it turned out!! Lots of layers of colors and I like how some of the patterns are subtle building up the layers.


For this first photo you can see several patterns I did as well as the cut aparts.  I started the canvas my spraying the Kaisermist Pink and Winter Gray mists to do a full coverage of the canvas. I let the colors run down the canvas for some lovely effects.  Here you can see where I used the Kaisercraft Acrylic Pink paint from the TSK to make some roses with the stencil in the Jade color kit...subtle but gorgeous effect!


The chevron pattern is also a stencil from the Jade kit while the Heidi Swapp silver metallic texture paste came from the Nigella Color Kit.


Here you can see the roses popping out from the canvas adding subtle layers. I have added several doilies and cut outs to add detail and movement to the canvas.

This Life Is Pretty Wonderful! A layout and Project Life spread for the Scrappery Kit Club


Hello fellow scrappers, I'm back again with another layout and Project Life spread with the gorgeous Jade kits!  I am really enjoying this size this year and think I will be sticking with it for a while! This project uses a lot of Kaisercraft and Cocoa Vanilla goodness and continues the documenting of my daughter's trip to London with her ballet class!


The layout for this project features a specialty paper from Kaisercraft. It is embossed with some beautiful subtle floral patterns and I used the pink and gray Kaisermists from the Color Kit to color the background and have the pattern show more clearly. I always add a small strip of kit paper to the edge of the page protectors where the holes are punched, this paper is a Kaisercraft floral from the Dream Big collecton included in the main scrapbooking kit (TSK).


In this close up above you can see some of the layers of gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla papers from the main kit tucked under the photo. The title "this life is pretty wonderful" is from a Cocoa Vanilla cut apart sheet from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK). I added a coral Kaisercraft Paper bloom and some sequins from the TSK and some splashes of color from the Kaisermist sprays.


Here you can see where I used the chevron stencil to spray the pink Kaisermist. I have added some more paper layers tucked under the photo, some more paper blooms and sequins and a cute die cut leaf flourish from the TSK.


I finished my layout with some strips of journaling about my daughter's trip, you can see where I have sprayed the gray Kaisermist which has really brought out the floral pattern in the background of the specialty paper!


Lots of fun photos in the Project Life spread to accompany the layout! They loved shopping, riding the tube and eating...


These times together were "priceless" for this photo I simply added the cutout from the PLK Cocoa Vanilla cut apart sheet.  I added a few simple pearls from the Bits & Pieces Kit (BPK) in the top corner of the photo to finish it off.

  
I love the Best Day ever cut out, I just popped it up on foam tape and added some pink rhinestones from the TSK. For the photo I simply added some teal pearls from the PLK along with more cut outs "remember" and "always".



For my final pocket in my Project Life spread I added the 4x6 card of the gorgeous Dream Big Kaisercraft paper from the PLK, added a doily, some fun photos of the girls on the Tube again and a little bow from the Pretty Little Pieces in the and the pearls from the BPK.

London Happiness: A layout and Project Life spread for the Scrappery Kit Club

This month my layouts and Project Life spreads are going to feature my daughter's trip to London with her ballet class since I consistently fail these days to capture day to day life in photos. Thank goodness for a selfie obsessed teen who has a bigger social life than me!!

This layout and spread feature lots of different papers from the main scrapbooking kit (TSK) as well as Project Life cards from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) and gorgeous embellishments from the Bits & Pieces Kit (BPK).


My project life spread features Aine with some of her ballet buddies and of course the title card for the spread!


I used the plain mint green cardstock in the PLK For my title card. I used a doily and small alphas from the BPK, the chevron piece is from a Cocoa Vanilla paper in the main kit. The stamp is also from the PLK. The gold letters are from the past Nigella kit.


 The "This was..." card and the cut out embellishments are from the PLK from a Cocoa Vanilla cut apart sheet. The pink rhinestones are from the TSK


This photo and the Snapchat graphic she added were perfect, so I used only minimal embellishment, some words from a paper in the TSK and some clear rhinestones from the Nigella BPK.

The layout I did for this week features the teal ombre Simple Stories Heart paper as a background to the Kaisercraft chevron die cut paper both in the TSK. I really love that effect!


As always I used lots of layers to build up my page. Here you can see labels and a heart embellishment from the Cocoa Daisy cut apart sheets in the PLK.  I tucked in a doily under the photo and some of the mini blooms found in the TSK and BPK! The die cut leaves come from the Pretty Little Pieces set.


I fussy cut some flowers that I tucked in under the right of the flower. Again I layered paper scraps under the photo and added the "Hello Happiness" title.


To finish off the layout, I used some of the teal paper and printed some journaling onto it, cut it into strips and added it to the layout. I like the way the teal in the journaling balanced the teal at the top of the paper and in the Project Life on the other side.

Once again I added strips on the hole punched edge to finish off the layout and Project Life spread and tie them together.

Cards with the gorgeous Scrappery Jade Kit!


Hello! Cathi back again with a set of cards using my Jade kits!  I always love to do a variety of projects with my kits each month, and cards are always a must!! I am really happy with how these turned out!


For my first card I used the beautiful Free Spirit Wildflowers paper from the main scrapbooking kit (TSK) for my base and the great cut apart sentiment from the Eclectic paper from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) "Hello You Make Me Smile".  I popped the sentiment up on foam tape in the center of the card. For this card I thought the flowers from the kits would be perfect, so I added the lovely cloth flower from the kit, the gorgeous Kaisercraft Sea Breeze Mini Blooms in mint from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK) and the Coral Mini Paper Blooms from the TSK.  I added the cute heart sequins from the Pretty Little Pieces from the TSK and the pearls from the BPK and finished off the card with some sewing around the edges.


For my second card I used the gorgeous Simple Stories Laugh Lots paper from the TSK for my base. The foiled hearts are on other side of this chevron pattern and make a great embellishment. I used the "Because I'm Happy" cut out from the PLK Cocoa Vanilla Free Spirit Eclectic cut out sheet popped up on foam for my sentiment. The teal Kaisercraft pearls from the PLK are a perfect little finishing detail for this clean card along with the stitching on the border.


For my final card I am using the TSK Cocoa Vanilla Free Spirit Wildflowers paper again for my base. The white tag comes from the Pretty Little Pieces kit in the PLK. and the other two tags com from Cocoa Vanilla Hello Lovely Lucky Dip cut apart sheet also in the kit.  The sentiment is from the Cocoa Vanilla Free Spirit Eclectic page and is popped up on foam for added dimension. The pink rhinstones come from the TSK and to finish off the card I added twine bows from my stash and some stitching around the edge.

Planner Projects with the Scrappery Jade Kits


My Jade kits arrived yesterday and I had to get started immediately on my first project with my new kits! As usual, I worked on some projects for my Traveler's Notebook! Lots of covers and a folder to store my stickers and notes using the gorgeous papers included in this months kit, A mix of Cocoa Vanilla, Kaisercraft and Simple Stories.


As usual, I love to pick a bold graphic paper for my first project, a slip-on cover for my Hobonichi Techo planner! I fold over a small edge on the top and bottom of the paper to fit the size of the journal then on the left and right sides of the paper I fold over flaps into which the front and back covers of the journals fit snuggly into. These flaps also make great little pockets to store a few printouts of some challenges I am working on. I used a gorgeous piece of Cocoa Vanilla Free Spirit paper from the main scrapbooking kit (TSK) for the cover and some of the Free Spirit cut outs for decorations. I added the gorgeous gold foil numbers found in the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) and the wreath cutout is from the Free Spirit set. I added a few white pearls from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK).


My next project is a notebook cover using a gorgeous soft orange chevron paper from Simple Stories Posh collection in the TSK. The butterfly is a cut out from the Hello Lovely cut out sheet from Cocoa Vanilla and the title is from the Free Spirit cut out sheet from Cocoa Vanilla both found in the PLK. I added some pearls from the BPK.


I am just loving the colors and the chevrons in these kits!!! Here is the folder that I made for this month. I took the gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla Free Spirit chevron paper from the TSK and added a cut out from the Free Spirit cutout paper in the PLK. The words and arrows were also from this sheet and I popped them up on foam tape for some dimension.  The pink Kaisercraft rhinestones are from the TSK.




For my final project I made a quick and simple dashboard using the Kaisercraft gold glitter polka dot paper from the TSK and a journal card from the Cocoa Vanilla Free Spirit cut out sheet in the PLK.




I really had a lot of fun doing this planner spread using only the Cocoa Vanilla Free Spirit chevron paper and cut out sheet. I added hearts, words and arrows from the cut apart sheet and I think it looks super cute and is ready to be filled out for the week!!

I absolutely love to use each kit for planning, scrapbooking, Project Life, cards and more!! I have lots of projects coming up for this month and I hope that you will come back to visit!!
