    My Citrus Twist Kits October Projects.

    October was my first month on the Citrus Twist Kits Design Team and I had lots of fun creating my projects with the Scrapbook Main kit “Good Vibes” and the Embellishment Kit. Here’s a quick overview 🙂

    First of all I made this layout using the Scrapbook Main kit and the Embellishment kit which both contained lots of Pink Paislee/Paige Evans “Oh My Heart” and Crate Paper/Maggie Holmes “Carousel” and I think they go together really well! Probably my favourite part was the gold/pink glitter ribbon from the Embellishment kit! I mean, I love everything that’s gold – and if it glitters, even better 😀

    This second layout was created for my 3-to-Inspire blogpost (here). My challenge for you was to

    1. use as little patterned paper as possible
    2. frame your photo with embellishments and diecuts
    3. add some paint splatters

    I loved the flower die cuts in the “Oh My Heart” (Pink Paislee) ephemera package and decided to use almost all of them on one layout:

    And (maybe) my favourite project of the three are these cute little customised notebooks which are perfect as little gifts or as a quick and easy crafty project with kids! You can find the step by step instructions and more detail photos here.

    Can’t wait to show you my projects with the Citrus Twist Kits November kits – which I like even more than the October kits 😀

    “Bloom” Layout with Spellbinders Platinum 6 & Textured Flowers Dies.

    Hello lovelies 🙂 Today I have a new layout for you and this time it’s a little bit different from my usual pages (at least I think so 😀 ). Spellbinders sent me their Platinum 6 Die Cutting & Embossing Machine to try out with two different die sets of my choice (I chose this “Textured Flowers” set and I’m completely in love with it, and this “More than Milk Carton” die set that I will show you in another blogpost) and the Tool ‘n One that you can use for paper piercing, removing die cuts from your dies and more.

    I was so excited to try out the Platinum 6 machine! Not only are the sleek design and the colours right up my alley, I also love the fact that the sides of the machine fold up and the handle is removable for easy storage. Now I can easily slide my Platinum 6 in my sideboard where I keep my bigger tools and I still have so much space left to store other things 🙂 This is what the machine looks like when the sides are folded up:

    Bloom Layout by ScatteredConfetti. // #scrapbooking #spellbinders #diecutting #platinum6

    And below you can see it with the sides folded down. The dark gray circles are really strong magnets that keep the sides in place when they are folded up:

    Bloom Layout by ScatteredConfetti. // #scrapbooking #spellbinders #diecutting #platinum6

    I really enjoyed working with the Platinum 6 and the Textured Flowers die set from the Timeless Heart collection. The dies cut through my papers like butter and what I love most about them is that they not only cut the flowers and leaves, but they also emboss tiny veins on them! I decided I wanted to make some layered flowers and use them on a layout (although I have SO many more ideas for other projects where you could use them!), so I pulled out some paper scraps in colours that would fit my photo and started cutting the different sizes of flowers and leaves.

    Bloom Layout by ScatteredConfetti. // #scrapbooking #spellbinders #diecutting #platinum6

    I made three layered flowers using different sizes and numbers of layers to add some variety. For the one on the top right of my photo I also die cut some gold glitter paper and the dies worked perfectly. To repeat the gold elements, I used some scribbled circle dies from my stash and cut the same gold glitter paper. For some more texture I used the Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (in Mother of Pearl) and this bubble stencil behind my photo and paper cluster.

    To curl up the petals of the flowers I just used a pencil and rolled the petals over it. Obviously you could give your flowers even more dimension, but since this layout will go into a page protector sooner or later, I didn’t want to make it too high. But I did add some brads, wood buttons and enamel dots in the center of the flowers to make them look even cuter 😉

    Bloom Layout by ScatteredConfetti. // #scrapbooking #spellbinders #diecutting #platinum6Bloom Layout by ScatteredConfetti. // #scrapbooking #spellbinders #diecutting #platinum6

    Because I wanted the focus to be on the photo and the flowers clustered around it, I decided to add my journaling in the form of some hidden journaling. For that I included a paper pocket on which I layered some more patterned papers, as well as my photo, and slid in a tag. On the tag I wrote a quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald with my typewriter, it reads: “For what it’s worth: It’s never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you have a life you’re proud of, and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over.”

    I made this whole layout to remind myself that it’s good to have dreams and that it’s worth believing in them and working for them, even if not everyone understands them. And, as the quote says, that it’s never too late to change direction!

    Bloom Layout by ScatteredConfetti. // #scrapbooking #spellbinders #diecutting #platinum6

    Here’s another look at those gorgeous flowers where you can see all the details in the petals and leaves that you get from the Spellbinders dies! I really am very much in love with them. Normally I would have never made such a “bulky” layout but with these dies I just couldn’t stop and wanted to add more and more flowers, haha 😀

    Bloom Layout by ScatteredConfetti. // #scrapbooking #spellbinders #platinum6 #diecutting

    Even after this one project, I am already a big fan of the Platinum 6 (and yes, that is my true, honest opinion). And you know the best thing? Right now you can get the Spellbinders Platinum 6 machine for just $69,99 over at Scrapbook.com – so you save a whopping $50!! Included are also an operation instruction booklet, a standard platform, two Clear Cutting Plates, one Embossing Plate and one Embossing Mat; so everything you need to get started (apart from your favourite dies of course 😉 ).

    I will show you my project with the other die set in the coming dies, but until then you can find more inspiring projects with the Spellbinders products on their blog here.

    New Felicity Jane “Heidi” Kit Layout – Pretty Amazing

    Hey there 🙂 I’m just stopping by quickly to let you know that I have a new layout up over on the Felicity Jane blog which I made with the gorgeous “Heidi” kit. (I really am very much in love with this kit!!)

    Here’s a little sneak peek of what you can expect:

    Pretty Amazing by ScatteredConfetti. // #scrapbooking #layout #felicityjane

    Hope you stop by because I had a lot of fun making this layout and am quite pleased with how it turned out!

    P.S.: It’s a bit quieter around here right now because I’m pretty busy “behind the scenes” with a few projects and can’t wait to show and tell you all about them soon!

    Pinkfresh Studio Blog Hop – Boys Fort.

    Hey there and welcome to the Pinkfresh Studio “Boy’s Fort” blog hop! You have probably already seen quite a few very manly projects on this hop 😉 so, just like last time, I thought I’d show you a different way in which you can use a Pinkfresh Studio collection!

    Coffee Love by ScatteredConfetti. // #pinkfreshstudio #boysfort #scrapbooking #bloghop

    I tried my hand at a (mostly) monochrome layout documenting my love for coffee (once again – haha) to show you that you can use this collection for everyday photos just as well 🙂

    Coffee Love by ScatteredConfetti. // #pinkfreshstudio #boysfort #scrapbooking #bloghopCoffee Love by ScatteredConfetti. // #pinkfreshstudio #boysfort #scrapbooking #bloghop

    For this layout I picked that super awesome white paper with the black words & phrases (Game On) as my background. For matting my photo I used three gray papers to stick to my monochrome colour scheme – same with the embellishments. The only coloured accents I added were the gold glitter star on my tag and the brown coffee stains that I created using this Tim Holtz mask (my favourite one since it always reminds me of coffee 😀 ) and the soft brown Hero Arts ink pad.

    Apart from the cute little black and white stars that are from Pinkfresh Studio’s “Escape the Ordinary” collection, everything is from “Boy’s Fort”.

    Coffee Love by ScatteredConfetti. // #pinkfreshstudio #boysfort #scrapbooking #bloghopCoffee Love by ScatteredConfetti. // #pinkfreshstudio #boysfort #scrapbooking #bloghop

Comments close at 11.59pm CST on Friday Sept 8th 2017 and the two winners will be  announced on Pinkfresh Studio’s blog on Thursday Sept 14th, 2017.

    [Pinkfresh Studio] Design Team Line Up & Escape the Ordinary Blog Hop.

    Woohoo, welcome to my stop on the Pinkfresh Studio Design Team Line Up & “Escape the Ordinary” blog hop! I’m very excited to be part of this amazing line up of super talented ladies! A huge thank you to Kinnari for having me 🙂

    If you don’t know me or are new to this page, welcome! And if you want to get to know me a bit better, have a look here.

    When I received my DT package (and was done with oohing and aahing over all the pretty things inside 😀 ), I immediately started playing with the Escape the Ordinary collection. And before I knew it, I had already three finished layouts with it. So it was difficult to decide which one to show you first on this blog hop.

    Eventually I chose this one (which was actually the last of the three that I made) because I thought that it might show you a slightly different colour scheme than some of the other scrapbooking projects you will have seen on the hop, so you would get an idea about how versatile the Escape the Ordinary collection is 🙂

    Plantlove by ScatteredConfetti.

    I left out all the blues and yellows of which there are quite a few in this collection and focused on the neutrals plus green and red instead – trying to match the colours in my photo.

    I also tried my hand at some light mixed media elements (okay, I only used a stencil with some gesso.. I’m not brave enough for more, yet 😀 ) to add some more interest to the page.

    Plantlove by ScatteredConfetti.

    Because the layout was quite busy with all the papers, stamps and embellishments already (aren’t those stitched hearts just the cutest?!), I decided to add my journaling on one of the stitched tags and put it behind my photo. I’m a really big fan of tags and hidden journaling (mostly because I really don’t like my handwriting and always fear I’ll mess up my layout), so the stitched tags come in really handy for me 🙂

    Plantlove by ScatteredConfetti.

    Plantlove by ScatteredConfetti.

    The leatherette alpha stickers are just perfect for this layout. I love the font and I love that they are quite flat, so they won’t make the page too bulky but because of the leather-look, still add some interest!

    Alright, that’s it from me. I really hope you like this layout and feel inspired to use the Escape the Ordinary collection! Now don’t forget that there’s something to win as well 😉 Pinkfresh Studio is giving away one entire Escape the Ordinary collection to one lucky winner and one set of stamps and dies worth over $100 to another winner!! The two winners will be randomly selected.  To be eligible, you must leave a comment on ALL blogs in the hop.  Comments close at 11:59 PM CST on Friday, August 18th.  Winner will be announced on August 25th on the Pinkfresh Studio blog.

    Sneaky Peeks.

    Just wanted to pop in very quickly to let you know that today I’m over at the In the Scrap blog to share another layout that I made for the August challenge (which is all about using transparent elements in your projects). So if you’d like to see more of this layout and get some more ideas on how to use vellum on a layout, head over there 🙂

    Mix & Match it Up with Crate Paper’s Gather Collection [Vacation Edition].

    After a bit of a scrapbooking hiatus, I finally felt inspired and sat down to make some layouts again two weeks ago. And I have to be honest: I’m really, really happy with the results 🙂

    Working with the gorgeous Gather collection by Maggie Holmes/Crate Paper and some bits and pieces from other recent collections made it a lot easier. I really like the soft colours and the patterns in this collection and I have almost used up all of the papers I have of it, so I think that really is a success! While until not too long ago I still had some things in my stash that I used to hoard, waiting for the “right” project to come along to use them on, I have finally overcome this thinking and just use what I have and love!

    But I don’t want to talk too much since this post will be quite picture-heavy. So without further ado, here are (some of) the projects that I made recently. I would love to hear how you like them!

    (I’ve also divided it up into several posts because there are just too many to share in one go – so I call this one the “vacation edition” 🙂 and looking at all of these summer-y layouts, makes me really wish it was warmer outside!)

    BCN by ScatteredConfetti BCN by ScatteredConfetti

    Of course this first layout is one of my favourites – it includes a photo of one of my absolute favourite corners in my favourite city in the whole wide world + lots of white space + florals + black and white patterned paper + gold details. Not sure how I could now love that 😀 For the title I just cut up this patterned paper from the Gather collection by Maggie Holmes/Crate Paper <3

    Products used:

    Crate Paper – Gather – 12 x 12 Paper Pad
    Crate Paper – Gather – 12 x 12 Double Sided Paper – Happy Place
    Crate Paper – Gather – 12 x 12 Double Sided Paper – Jane
    Heidi Swapp – Color Shine – Black Velvet
    Heidi Swapp – Color Shine – Coral
    Stampers Anonymous – Tim Holtz – Layering Stencil – Speckles

    Adventure by ScatteredConfetti

    This second layout is a perfect example (in my opinion) for how mixing and matching different collections (even from different brands) can work out perfectly! The papers are from the Gather collection, the wood veneer pieces from the Gossamer Blue October kits, the white thickers word from American Crafts/Amy Tangerine’s “Oh Happy Life”, the floral and chipboard stickers from Dear Lizzy’s “Saturday” and the golden rub-ons from the Pebbles/Jen Hadfield’s “Warm & Cozy” collection. Each collection taken on its own has a very different look and feel to it than the others, but single bits of them combined can work together beautifully!

    Products used:

    Heidi Swapp – Color Shine – Citron
    Crate Paper – Gather – 12 x 12 Paper Pad
    American Crafts – Oh Happy Life Collection – Thickers – Alpha – Wild – White
    American Crafts – Saturday Collection – Thickers – Hello – Multicolor
    American Crafts – Go Now Go Collection – Wooden Buttons
    Pebbles – Warm and Cozy Collection – Rub Ons with Foil Accents

    The next two layouts are also an example of mixing and matching collections (actually the same ones as I’ve just mentioned + Shimelle’s “Go Now Go”):

    Beautiful by ScatteredConfetti Beautiful by ScatteredConfetti Adventure by ScatteredConfetti

    Products used:

    Crate Paper – Gather – 12 x 12 Paper Pad
    American Crafts – Go Now Go Collection – 12 x 12 Double Sided Paper – Fly
    American Crafts – Saturday Collection – Thickers – Hello – Multicolor
    American Crafts – Oh Happy Life Collection – Cardstock Stickers – Accent and Phrases
    American Crafts – Go Now Go Collection – Wooden Buttons
    Stampers Anonymous – Tim Holtz – Layering Stencil – Traveler
    Ranger Ink – Dina Wakley Media – Gesso – Clear – 4 Ounce Jar
    Heidi Swapp – Color Shine – Citron
    Heidi Swapp – Color Shine – Coral

     

    On the first and last layout I also tried to incorporate some mixed media elements (okay, just one – gesso) and I’m really liking the look of it. I really want to do more of that on my future projects!

    Alright, that’s it for today! I hope you like the layouts and maybe feel inspired to mix and match some of the collections in your stash!

    Have a nice weekend! 🙂

    Trying Something Different with the [Gossamer Blue October Kits].

    Hey there 🙂 Today is the first of October and this means today is also reveal day over at Gossamer Blue!! The October kits are filled with pretty products, lots of florals and gorgeous colours. I especially love all of the pieces from the Crate Paper “Gather” collection (by Maggie Holmes) in there!

    To be honest, when I unpacked my kits, I wasn’t all too excited about the pieces from the new Amy Tangerine “Oh Happy Life” collection, however. It’s not that this collection isn’t good, it’s just that it’s not very “me”. The colours are a bit too bright and bold for my taste and I’m not very into the colour combos and the patterns. So I was a bit hesitant about using those papers and embellishments and first stuck to all the pretty things from the “Gather” collection 😀

    Although when I was finished with my projects for the October kits (9 layouts and 1 gift set with two boxes, a card and an envelope. let me repeat, NINE layouts! I haven’t done this many with one kit in a very long time, so this shows that the kits are really good!) and looked through them again, I realised that actually half of the layouts were made almost entirely with stuff from the Amy Tangerine line!! And the interesting thing is that they still feel “me”. Maybe not as much as the other ones (I mean I’m still not really convinced by one or two of them) but I still managed to make something with it that I do like. And it pushed me to try out something different. Nothing revolutionary or super exciting, just little things like using clear stickers layered beneath my patterned paper or a new (for me) colour combo like green + yellow..

    Home. Home.

    I’m always really inspired by Suse Fish (one of my all-time favourite scrappers. everything she touches is just pure gorgeousness #fangirl). I love when she incorporates some mixed media touches into her layouts and they still feel really soft and light, like this one here. So I wanted to try my hand at making a layout like this, too.. well, the result is the above layout. I’m still not really sure what to think about it. I’m a bit torn. I like the texture but I’m not convinced of the yellow watercolour.. but maybe it’s just because there are quite a lot of “non-me” elements, like the colour combo.. I don’t know. What do you think?

    Although the colour combo itself really does work when I look at this layout:

    Moments. Moments.

    I’m a bit in love with this cute little dear epoxy sticker <3 and that leaf wood veneer piece!

    Anyways, I’ll stop rambling now and just show you the rest of my layouts so you can make up your own mind about how much “me” they feel to you 😉

    Beautiful Day.

    I’m really really happy that I finally have some new photos I can use for my layouts and even more so that quite a lot of them are actually good photos of me! S. really has stepped up his photography game (after enough whining and complaining from my side 😀 )

    The one I used on the layout below is one of my absolute favourite photos he took. It’s not posed, just a genuine shot (and my hair looks good, haha).

    Remember.

    And here’s the last layout of the “trying something different” group 😉  ..I’m still not too sure about this layout. However, when I flipped through my album to show S. the layouts I made with the kits, he said that this was one of his favourites. So yeah, I guess beauty really is in the eye of the beholder 😉

    Sweet Things. Sweet Things.

    I’d love to know what you think about these layouts and which one is your favourite. I’d say mine is the second one, but probably because it feels most typically me.

    I’ll show you more of my projects in the next few days (and I’m almost certain that I will make even more with these kits. Maybe until I have nothing left but scraps 😉 ) and I am really excited about those that I haven’t shown you yet 😉

    Have a great weekend, guys! 🙂

    Interrupting the Silence for Some Gossamer Blue [September kits] projects.

    Chirp, chirp, chirp… yeah, sorry. That’s the only thing that you could “hear” around here in the past few weeks.. Things just got a bit too much. While almost everyone at work was on vacation somewhere nice, I stayed where I was and held the line 😉

    But now things are finally getting back to normal and I’m about to head out to the Costa Brava for a week with S. to relax and regenerate a bit. But before I leave, I want to show you some of the projects that I’ve made with the super pretty (and jam-packed) Gossamer Blue September kits.

    The kits contain a lot of Crate Paper’s “Cute Girl” collection, the We R Memory Keepers “Urban Chic” line and “Take Me Away” by Paige Evans for Pink Paislee. Especially the Scrapbooking kits and add-ons have a very girly, cutesy vibe – which I like but which made it a little difficult for me to make some projects since I don’t have any kids and the colours/patterns don’t fit most of my photos too well.

    Enzo Layout - ScatteredConfetti

    This one of Enzo, a friend’s golden retriever that I dog-sitted for almost two weeks in July, was perfect for the papers since the photo contains some pink as well. I’m really happy with how the layout turned out although I couldn’t add any sewing machine stitching because it broke down on me while I was working on these projects ..Buh!!

    Enzo Layout - ScatteredConfetti

    This next layout was made with the Life Pages main kit which has more fall-ish colours and I am absolutely in love with them!

    Everyday Layout - ScatteredConfettiEveryday Layout - ScatteredConfetti
    Instead of patterned paper I used two of the Life Pages cards behind the photo. Because I didn’t want to mess up the clean and simple look of the page (and because I don’t like my handwriting), I added some journaling on one of the cards and tucked it behind the photo and the other card.

    Everyday Layout - ScatteredConfettiEveryday Layout - ScatteredConfetti

    So that’s it for now. I have quite a few more projects to share with you and I’m quite excited about them because they are “different” from my other projects and you will see why 😉

    Psst, if you follow me on Instagram, you might be able to guess what the difference could be 😉

    Three Very Different Layouts with the [Gossamer Blue] June Kits.

    Hey there 🙂 It’s the first of June (WHAT?!) and that means today is reveal day over at Gossamer Blue. And let me tell you this: the June kits are really fun! I loved playing with them because they are full of bright, cheerful colours and patterns that make you excited for summer to come!

     

    So, here are just a few of the projects I’ve made with them 🙂 The following three layouts are actually quite different from each other (at least in my mind 😉 )

     

    This first one is my favourite of all three:

    Favourite Café Layout by ScatteredConfetti. For this layout I handcut the flowers from this patterned paper by Simple Stories and I really love how it turned out! I’m actually quite proud of myself for finishing it (eventhough it’s not that big of a piece of paper) because when it comes to tedious things like that, I’m really not the most patient person on earth 😉

    To make the flowers really pop, I didn’t add any other patterned paper. Just some embellishments here and there and a tag behind the photo with some hidden journaling.

    Favourite Café Layout by ScatteredConfetti.

    This second layout is a bit of the opposite of the first one because this didn’t really turn out the way I had envisioned it.. I pushed those little squares around for what seemed like an eternity but was never really happy with it. Until I decided to just finally glue them down and finish it.. Maybe it will grow on me, who knows 😉

    This last layout might look familiar to you because I’ve already made two that are quite similar (here and here). In the Life Pages Main Kit there is always a card with the name of the month on it and I like to use that together with some others to make a layout to document that month. Of course the journaling is still missing because I don’t know (everything) that is going to happen in June, yet 😉

    I also used lots of the stamps from the Life Pages Main Kit on that layout. I stamped, heat embossed (with white embossing powder) and then handcut the “Hello” phrase and also added some stamping on the lower right journaling card. They just fit perfectly 🙂

    What I especially like about this last layout is the colour scheme. I don’t often use navy blue in my projects and definitely not together with yellow and light pink but I’ve got to admit: they look great together! What do you think?

    I’d love to know which of these layouts you like the most! My favourite is definitely the first one 🙂
