Hello! I haven’t post much this month as it’s getting busier around here in the summer. Today I have a scrapbook layout to share with you with Sketch N Scrap layout sketch. It’s a lovely sketch designed by Heather.

For my layout,  I flipped the sketch horizontally because my photo’s focal point was on the right side.

I started with splattering some watercolor droplets that matched my papers on my white cardstock. I used supplies from the Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Kit. I love fussy cutting the flowers from the patterned paper as embellishments. I added the rose gold alphabet thickers as my title to my layout. Honestly, I really need to be more creative with my title lol

Fringed card – thank you card

Hello! It’s the second sketch for Sketch N Scrap birthday bash crop today on the blog. It’s a cute sketch designed by Lisa and it’s versatile for any occasion.

May9th Birthday challenge 2

I created a fringed card. It is so fun because it is a little bit 3D. I have seen these cards and always wanted to try it. When I saw the sketch, I was inspired to create the little fringes!

I used my Cameo to create the 5 strips of fringes. I probably could have use scissors and it would have been faster but I was diecutting something else anyway, might as well let the machine do the work. I adhered the fringes onto a card panel that I diecut with a stitched rectangle die. I adhered a strip of gold on the side that I punched with a border punch for a little bit more interest. I decided to cut off the the edge of the border to let the border strip pop out more. I made the fringe all the way to the top of the card and stamped my thank you sentiment onto my card.

The dimensional of the fringed card is so fun!

DIY Traveler Notebook Kit

Hello! Today I want to share something a little different and a first – that is a DIY Traveler Notebook Kit from my stash. I have previously made DIY scrapbooking kit before from my stash supplies but these days, my scrapbook supplies are in a box so I just grab whatever inspires me and that works for me.

I recently started using a Traveler Notebook (TN) as a journal or jotting down whatever I learn that day. I just stick down random scraps from my table from my scrapbooking or cardmaking projects. So I thought making a kit just to use in my notebook would be fun for a change.

For this month, I was inspired by Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog inspiration kit from Gossamer Blue March 2017 kits.

I love the teals and yellow so I took the color inspiration and created from my stash mostly teals and orange yellow colors.

Honestly, it seems like a lot for a TN kit lol – but it’s okay, it just goes back to my stash if I don’t use it or if I get tired of it.

I took 3×4 and 4×6 pocket pages cards from We R Memory Keepers Tangerine kit.DIY Traveler Notebook Kit

I also found matching colors cards from Project Life Honey Core Kit and Elle Studio. I figured that these cards would be nice to cut up for embellishments or use as journaling cards or tip ins in my TN.

Speech bubbles card

Love those speech bubbles cards from the inspiration kit, and found some in my stash.

For embellishments, I added some of Shimelle’s Go Now Go diecuts and stickers.

Alphabet stickers for DIY Traveler Notebook Kit

I also added some alphabet stickers from October Afternoon. I am quite amazed I still have some much left.

I just put them all in this chocolate box I had and put it on my table. I also added my date stamp and a washi tape too. There are also some illustrations leftover from Wilna Furstenberg ‘s last year class Art2Heart (August) as well.

We shall see what I would do with this kit. I don’t usually share my TN since I don’t do much with it except writing random things anyway but we shall see if I can make it pretty with the kit I created. Then I might share some pages lol

Thanks for stopping by and Happy crafting!
