Dream Big Layout with The Scrappery Kit Club Belle Kits!


Hello scrappy friends! Cathi back again with another layout with a ballet theme of my daughter and er two friends while they were up in the big city in Dublin (Ireland) preparing for their vocational ballet exam! It is a mirror selfie, but such fun I had to scrapbook the day!  This layout is using the gorgeous Belle Kits. featuring the Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart collection. This base paper is a gorgeous watercolour in the collection called Mariposa.


Here you can see lots of different goodies from the kits!  The date stamp, button flair, cardstock "memories" sticker, flower, film strip and doily epherma are all from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK). The flowers are from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK) and the chipboard butterfly is from the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK).



Here you can see several papers from the TSK layered under the photo, along with a sparkly enamel dot from the BPK.


Here you can see the gorgeous big rubber tag charm from the BPK as well as the cardstock word stickers from the PLK. I added in a bit of my own journaling about the day.

I really love how this layout turned out, a beautiful photo and beautiful papers and embellishments to compliment it. These kits are so full of goodness and can work with so many different types of projects! I hope that you will come and have a look at the kits and consider subscribing!!  You can find the subscriptions HERE.

Beautiful You Layout for The Scrappery Kit Club



Hello scrappy friends!! I'm back again with a layout this week!  I absolutely love the Wild at Heart collection by Cocoa Vanilla that the Belle kits are filled with, so beautiful!! I chose a very mixed media paper for my base for this one, a paper called Artisan which is in the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK).  My daughter recently had one of her vocational ballet exams up in Dublin and her friend snapped this photo on her phone, I think it looks great! I am sure she would point out all her technical faults in her jump, but heck I just see my happy gorgeous girl looking elegant!


In this close up you can see where I have used some of the Peach Kaisermist and mixed it in with some of my modeling paste and used the hearts stencil in the Colour Kit (TCK) to add some texture to the background.  I have used a wreath from the chipboard stickers in the TSK along with the wooden pieces which are also in the main kit.  The rubber embellies, sparkly enamel dots, and flowers are from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK).


In this close up you can see more of the chipboard wreath I used from the TSK as well as the ticket and cardstock sticker "perfect" from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK).  I've also tucked in a bit of paper from the TSK as a layer behind the photo.


In my final photo you can see where I have brushed on some of the gold acrylic paint from the TCK to tone in with the paper. The flower ephemera can be found in the PLK, the flowers and enamel dots come from the BPK.  The wood piece and chipboard "you" are both from the TSK.

I really love how this layout turned out, a beautiful photo and beautiful papers and embellishments to compliment it. These kits are so full of goodness and can work with so many different types of projects! I hope that you will come and have a look at the kits and consider subscribing!!  You can find the subscriptions HERE.

Hello crafty friends!! Cathi back again this week with a set of three cards using the gorgeous Belle kits!  The kits always have a gorgeous mix of journaling cards and embellishments to make beautiful cards and this kit is no different.


The first card I am showing is using the beautiful Double Dot paper from the Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart collection found in the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK).  I have fussy cut some gorgeous butterflies from the Mariposa paper also in the TSK.  The hello is from the chipboard stickers found in the TSK and the flowers and ephemera are from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK).  The sweet heart word sticker is from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK).

This comes from the PLK.  The base paper is the beautiful Memento sheet from the TSK and the butterfly is fussy cut from the Mariposa sheet in the same kit. I have added a doily, some flowers and some sparkly enamel dots, all found in the BPK.

Art Journaling with my Belle Kit from the Scrappery!


Hello scrappy friends!! Cathi back again with another art journal/planner spread using the gorgeous Belle kits!  Our challenge this week was a mixed media girl face! As I am still building up my stash of paints and other media I used my watercolors for this and added lots of goodies from the Belle kits.


In this close up you can see several goodies from the kits, the gorgeous flower in her hair is from the Bits and Pieces kit (BPK).  The rubber charm "gorgeous" is also in the BPK. In the background you can see where I have smudged on some gold paint from the Color Kit (TCK) as well as using the heart stencil and peach Kaisermist. The text words are from the cardstock stickers found in the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) along with the arrow stamp.



Here you can see the rest of the girl, another die cut ephemera piece from the BPK and word stickers from the PLK.  The butterfly has been fussy cut from a paper in the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK).


On the planner side of the spread I had fun with watercolor and doodling and I added the colorful number stickers from the PLK to add the dates.  I've added tons of ephemera from the BPK, some more fussy cut butterflies from the TSK and cardstock word stickers and labels, again from the PLK.


I really enjoy working on this art journal planner and it has been fun to do a spread with the different kits! I have done some planner decor, some art journaling and I have some layouts and cards to come. These kits are so full of goodness and can work with so many different types of projects!

Planner Decor with the Belle Kits from the Scrappery!


One of my favorite things to do with a new kit is decorate my planner with it and I just love making inspirational covers for all my notebooks and a folder to keep my goodies in!!


This first cover is a vellum paper from the Cocoa Vanilla Wild at Heart collection included in this kit! We don't always get vellum and I just love using it in my planner, so pretty!!  The quote is from the ephemera as well as the butterfly and the heart is from the chipboard stickers in the main kit (TSK)



This is my Foxy Fix dashboard. I used one of the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) 4 x 6 cards for my background and used a quote from the cut apart sheet in the same kit. The two wood pieces are from the TSK.


This the folder that I made for this kit, I love the gorgeous big florals in this collection and this quote from the PLK cut apart sheet is perfection.  The butterfly is fussy cut from the same sheet and the sparkly enamel dots are from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK).


For my bullet journal notebook cover I am using the teal dotted paper from the main kit, as well as a cardstock sticker quote from the TSK, the chipboard hearts from the chipboard stickers and the buttefly from the ephermera kit in the BPK.  I added some sparkly enamel dots in a few places including the butterfly body.


My final planner cover is the slip on cover I make every kit for my Hobonichi journal. I added the quote, and butterfly from the ephemera pack, a wooden hear and some of the small flowers from the BPK.

I love the coordinated and decorated look that I get for my planner when I used the Scrappery kits!  I hope you like my projects and I thank you so much for stopping by!!

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!
