Bakin’ Up Some Scrapbook Layouts

Shabby Art Boutique has delivered a fabulous monthly printable kit for their Handmade Club once again!

Although I don’t cook or bake (if it were up to me, the kitchen would be an extension of my craft room….and has been in the past – lol), I had so much fun working with these delicious images.

I think my favorite images are the apple pie goodies, although there are also fig pies, strawberry cupcakes and cakes, macarons, and lots more. I had to ask my husband to bake something when I was done, as I’m pretty sure I was drooling.

If you like fussy cutting, you’re going to love this monthly kit! Check out my YouTube video too, on tips and techniques for using and decorating your printables (along with how to make the painted backgrounds on my 12×12 layouts):

I have all my new layouts available now in my eBay shop. Have some family baking photos? Holiday get-togethers? Time with Grandma? This layouts are perfect for so many “sweet” occasions. 🙂

A touch of Glossy Accents really adds pop and dimension when working with printables. I added some to my cake, apples, strawberry centers, and frosting. It dries super shiny and almost embossed looking.

This was my first time working with honeycomb patchwork paper too, and I really love the look! I think they added a nice farm country touch.

Please be sure to check out my Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube channels too for updates, sales, and all things crafty!

Thanks for stopping by, and happy crafting!

Handmade Club October Printable Scrapbook Pages

I’m so proud to be part of the Shabby Art Boutique Handmade Club’s team! The October 2020 kit has so many fabulous shabby chic Christmas printables, and I incorporated them into my 12×12 scrapbook layouts this week.

This Vintage style is so much fun to work with. I added lots of Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink and Diamond Stickles throughout to really bring all the fussy cut images to life.

I also made a couple darling retro Christmas cards. What a fun week!

Hope these pretty projects have inspired you today. You can find these and lots more handmade goodies in my eBay shop too, so please stop by and say “hi!”

Gothic Halloween Torn Junk Journal

I’m so eerily excited at the way this junk journal turned out!

I started with the Gothic Halloween digital junk journal kit from Kelly’s Crafts by Kelly for this lovely project. All images were printed onto 65lb Neenah cardstock.

I wanted to create an old, gothic feeling journal, so I decided to tear all my pages (including the main book pages that I bound together with seam binding) instead of cutting them with a paper trimmer.

All edges have been heavily inked with both Vintage Photo and Black Soot Distress Ink.

I loved the illustrations so much that it was easy to let them be the star, so I added only a few embellishments here and there. I did make my own resin pieces for this book, however, and I think they really added a nice touch. I have a YouTube video all about that process too, if you’d like to see just how easy they are to make:

Hope you enjoyed this flip-through blog journey with me today. May it inspire your creativity this week. Please let me know what you think and follow me on Facebook and Instagram for daily crafty goodness!

I also have hundreds of handmade journals, premade scrapbook pages, and greeting cards in my Bella Stitchery eBay shop!

Thanks so much, and keep in touch, my crafty friends! xoxo

Woodland Whimsy Scrapbook Layouts

Autumn isn’t just for oranges and browns. I love mixing it up from time to time with pastels and pinks, so I was delighted that this month’s Woodland Whimsy kit from The Handmade Club embraced those shabby chic colors too!

I printed out lots of gorgeous illustrations from the collection onto 65lb Neenah cardstock and then went fussy-cutting!

I love the darling fairies, roses, and pumpkins! There are also lots of darling foxes and rabbits in the kit too, for good measure.

All my premade layouts are available for purchase in my eBay shop too! Only one of each available, so grab the one that speaks to your heart and get yourself some happy mail!

Which one is your favorite? I’d love to hear your feedback!

Thanks so much for crafting with me today! xoxo

Lavender Flower Market Scrapbook Layout

I’m new on the design team for Shabby Art Boutique and this is my very first project using the August 2020 Field of Flowers printable kit.

I had so much fun fussy cutting lots of shabby chic details, from this adorable little girl to lots of 3D “flying” butterflies.

Pretty details.

I added more dimension with a painted chipboard fence by Scrapaholics.

I love the way the printables popped against white cardstock and some watercolor splatter.

You can purchase this premade layout from my eBay shop too! Just add your favorite photo, and then put it in your album or a shadowbox!

Thanks so much for crafting with me today and happy scrapbooking! xoxo

Junk journals are just such a joy to make. They are a little of this and that, and are filled with everything that make me feel happy at the time.

Here is a journal I made from a vintage Easter sheet music book and the Lady Amelia’s Portrait Journal printable kit from Kelly’s Crafts by Kelly.

Here’s the before and after of my 8.5×10.5 inch sheet music book:

The album cover was embellished by several packs of the Prima Marketing Georgia Blues flowers (LOVE these!)
