Kellie Stamps CT | Merry October!

Yes you read the title right, with the new Holiday themed releases from Kellie Stamps October will be very merry! All in all she has 8 new sets out! I can´t tell you how much fun we in the CT have had with all of those! Here are just a few projects I have made.

If I don´t change my mind I will be making a new entry in our December minialbum. Last year I finished up the first 3 December´s in the first album. You can read more about this here. So, I have med a few journaling and filler cards for that album.


As usual I have also used the digital stamps to make word strips to use as embellishments. 



These circles come in a variety of choices and are blank in the center, but I had some fun and put a punched out circle of patterned paper in there. 


I also made a patterned paper with a digital stamp to use for this gift bag. 
I know I will be back to share many more projects using the many stamp sets for this month!


Autumn minibook 2016

I love autumn and was eager to try my hands on a travelers notebook style. So I made an insert myself and started collecting fall stories in it. The gallery theme for October was Falling for fall at Write Click Scrapbook and this spread above was my contribution and start of my minibook.

For some of my spreads I have used the #hashtagthisweek prompt by Mandy. I have really enjoyed using prompts lately. As you can see my spreads are quite simple.

My title here is actually cute from the Happy routine digital stamp kit by Kellie Stamps. I printed an outline version of the stamp on the green patterned paper and then cut it out. 

I love journaling on tags these days!

The circles here are from the clear stamps Happy routine and I have just added water color to them. 

Sweater weather <3

Kellie Stamps DT | September projects

I was one of the DT members that got to play with the clear stamps aswell as the digital version of the September stamps from Kellie Stamps. It is called Happy routine and has all sorts of everyday sentiments. I used one of the clear stamps to make this background for my layout. I like to do this with smaller stamps, it gives a big impact eventhough it is so very simple.  One of my happy routines is to be creative every day, painting or scrapbooking. It is so necessary for my well being.


For this subway art I used the digital set. In picmonkey I opened a canvas and then just added the stamps I wanted, then rezised and arranged them the way I wanted. When I had printed it out I added a stamped house and a chipboard star. I love how it turned out! 
I´ll be back soon to share my October projects!

Memory keeping | Studio Calico Sunday sketch

For this layout I used this sketch from Studio Calico. I thought it was fun to create the border around the edges. I used different green shades since my story was about me being a plant mom ;)

Scdetails 2 minibook

In September I took a minibook workshop at Studio Calico called Details 2. Tina Azmus did an awesome job and I thought the whole thing was so inspiring! 

In one of the lessons she encouraged us to make at least 6 water color background cards and this might have been my favorite lesson. We worked from our own moodboard. You can see mine below.


Here are a few of my pages. I used book rings and my book is made with 6x4" cards.



I have had so much fun finding post cards and other pieces I liked to include in my book. I will do this again, I´m sure!
