Good morning. Just wanted to share some of my layouts I created with this beautiful May kit from Scrapbook Circle.
1. Create a layout that boldly mixes patterns. We would love to see a Scrapbook Circle kit in action, but any materials will do.
2. Post your project to your blog, a gallery, or our Facebook page. Come back to this post and leave a comment with the direct link to your posted project.
3. Deadline to enter is Wednesday, June 5th, 9:00 pm Pacific. That’s right – you have three weeks to complete this challenge!
A $10.00 shop credit will be awarded to a randomly selected player. Good luck and happy scrapping!
Here is my layout. I hand wrote the title on different patterned papers and cut them out.
I don’t like to use bright, busy, patterned paper as my background, but I loved this one from Basic Grey Mint Juleup Naomi. I cut it slightly smaller than 8.5 x 11″ and adhered it on yellow cardstock. It makes those yellow flowers pop. The two Instagram photos were layered over some lighter patterned paper and a Fancy Pants Trendsetter Decorative Bag.
I lightened up the bottom with a mask and some color shine.
I really liked the Fancy Pants Trendsetter Decorative Bag with stars, that came in the kit. I love stars and use them quite often on boy layouts.
I used a star pattern mask from Studio Calico that came in our add-on January kit and added modeling paste to the mask. You can use any mask that you have. I even tried regular cardstock with punched stars and it worked the same. Once the modeling paste was dry I added drops of mist.
I added more die cut stars from white cardstock. Some were cut with Silhouette Cameo and some were punched out. If you need some stars I have a free file download on my blog for Silhouette users.
In the end I added three Basic Grey Metal Studs/Brass Stars to the page.
Have a great day. We are getting ready to go and spend our day outside!!

Create a new card using Impression Obsession stamps and post it on Impression Obsession Blog, between May 16 - 22. A winner will be chosen randomly to win a $25 gift certificate to the Impression Obsession store.
Here is my card.
I used Banners and Greetings stamp set. I stamped the banners in three different colors and added them to the top of the card. I used 3D White Foam Squares from Therm O Web to add dimension to one of the banners and the sentiment banner on the bottom.
The butterflies are stamped and cut out. I added a brad to each one and used Zots Adhesive Dots by Therm O Web to adhere them to the card. The patterned paper is from Simple Stories Vintage Bliss collection.

I was asked to create several projects with some of the new May stamp sets from Sweet Stamp Shop. The official release day was yesterday. You can see al the wonderful creations with the new stamp sets on the Sweet Stamp Shop blog.
For my first card I used Austen Obsessed stamp set. It has favorite quotes from her book. It also has a really beautiful lace border that you can use with pretty much anything.
I used a piece of the lace border to stamp the doilies. I drew an one inch circle with a pencil and stamped around the circle. I erased the pencil before I added watercolor crayons.
I used 3D Foam Adhesive to pop up the middle doily. I sprinkled some color shine over the card and added sequins.
For this one I used Prima mask and modeling paste to add texture to the bottom of the card. I sprinkled glitter while it was still wet and at the end sprayed with Color Shine. I stamped the lace border and added watercolor crayons.
One last one with this set using just the sentiment.
Weird Love comes with this beautiful sentiment and lips and a mustache.
I stamped the sentiment on cardstock and added it to a piece of fabric with a pin. The wood veneer heart is colored with Faber Castell pen.

Here is my layout.
I love how this layout turned out. I started by stamping the images and using my watercolor crayons to color them. I cut them out and arranged them on the sides of the photos. Lots of little embellishments and stickers on the page from My Mind’s Eye.
I wrote “love” lightly in pencil and poked holes along the lines and added stitching. Splattered some yellow paint at the bottom.
Recently I made this little pillow using the same stamp set. I colored the hearts with watercolor crayons. The quote is from Mama = Love by Ali Edwards.
***Make sure you check out all the blogs because we are giving away a $25.00 gift certificate to Technique Tuesday. That means you can get anything you want.***
The winners will be announced on the Technique Tuesday blog on the 15th.
