Hi, guys, it’s Beth from Bourbon Creek Crafts here today! I made a fun 12×12 scrapbook page from the Scrapping for Less new summer release, the Summer Floaties collection! There is a coordinating 6×6 paper pack and stamp set. How cute is this collection???
When I saw the “Summer Girl” stamp in the stamp set, I knew I wanted to make a scrapbook page with this collection! So I pieced together some of the blue pool patterns from the paper pad to go behind my pictures. Then I used the stamp set and images from the pattern paper to make my embellishments.
I stamped “summer girl”, “pool time” and the little girl with the donut floatie from the stamp set. I used pink embossing powder from a recent Flavor of the Month Kit to emboss and add color to the “summer girl” sentiment. I used some alcohol markers to color in the image of the little girl. Then I fussy cut out some of the popsicles and pineapples to use as embellishments. I did pull in a piece of paper from the Summer Ombre paper pad, to punch circles from to back my images.
I really enjoyed making this page! You can watch the full process video HERE.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed seeing this collection in action!
Hello! It’s Beth from Bourbon Creek Crafts here today and I’m sharing the first sneak peek of the July 2020 Flavor of the Month kit, In the Tropics! For those of us who haven’t been able to get away for a true vacation recently, this definitely gives you those tropical vacation vibes!!🌴
I used Collection #1 (Tropical Vibes) for my card and the Mojo Monday Sketch #300 that is included on this month’s sketch sheet. I stamped the toucan onto white card stock and used the watercolor paint set that came with the Banana Split level kit to give her some color. While she was drying, I built the rest of my card.
I used three different patterns from the collection and backed them all on black cardstock to help break up the patterns. I also stamped the hibiscus flower and painted it. I used the “Toucan do anything” sentiment (how cute is that saying???) and added it onto the card with the flower. I also ended up adding a flower sequin to cover up a paint smudge near her head.🤦🏻♀️
This card was super fun to make! You can watch my full process video HERE. I hope it gives you some inspiration for your kit this month and I hope it brings you some relaxing and tropical vibes. 😎 And, if you like what you see, be sure to sign up for the kit subscription now because these kits have been selling out fast!
Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to come back each day for more peaks at this month’s fabulous kit!!
Hello everyone, it’s Beth from Bourbon Creek Crafts here today and I have made a cute tag for my 2020 journal using the Let’s Hang Out stamp set from Collection 2 of the June 2020 kit. You can see the full process for this tag in my video HERE.
I have a journal that I’ve been documenting things that we’ve experienced over the last few crazy months and when I saw the sentiment in this stamp set, I knew I needed to add it to my journal!
I started by stamping the monkeys and monkey bars on some white cardstock. I used the stencil in the kit and some Mowed Lawn distress ink to create the grass. I used a finger blade to cut the middles out between a few of the monkey bars and then did some basic coloring on the monkey bars and the monkeys themselves.
I used the green leaf ribbon that came in the kit to weave through the openings I made between the monkey bars and then draped it down the side of the bars as well. I used a scrap of paper from the On the Playground collection for my tag base because I liked how the light blue looked a little like the sky in the background. I stamped my sentiment at the top of the tag and added angles on the top corners to give it that tag shape. I used the rest of the leaf ribbon at the top of my tag to finish it off. I think it’s such a fun element to add to my journal!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed this little project!
Hello everyone! It’s Beth here today with 4 more cards from the Pond Life collection from the June 2020 Flavor of the Month Kit! This kit is sold out, but the Pond Life paper collection is sold individually. You can see my full process video as well as links to all of the products I used HERE.
For my first card, I wanted to use the cute frog patterned scrap I had left as a focal point (how cute is that paper??). So I took the piece of the green polka dot pattern that I had left and offset it to the left on the front of my white cardbase. I added the cattail pattern scrap and the frog pattern scrap off to the right. I used the “you are toadally awesome” sentiment (my favorite) from the Pond Life stamp set on white cardstock, punched it out with a circle punch and then backed it with a brown cardstock scalloped circle. I ended up punching some small circles out of brown cardstock to act as brown enamel dots to finish off the card.
I used some of the remaining scraps I had to piece together this card front. I decided to leave a little white boarder around each of the pieces, so I cut them just shy of the measurements listed on this sketch. I like how the white separates the busier patterns. I I used the piece of the sailboat paper I had left as my focal point in the center of the card and backed it with white. I added my sentiment piece with the sailboat and “hope you are doing well” sentiment from the stamp set. Then I finished off this card with some of the yellow daisy flowers and peach enamel dots!
I used the last large piece of patterned paper I had, the striped piece, as my card mat on a turquoise cardbase. I backed the honeycomb strip on white cardstock to help separate it from the busy stripe behind it. Then I stamped the frog onto white card stock and did some basic coloring with my YG03 Copic marker. I stamped another sentiment from the stamp set, “you are full of life”. I backed my froggy on some turqouise cardstock. I used that same color for the strip at the bottom and then a fishtail banner at the top. I also added the last of the peach enamel dots.
I decided I had enough scraps to make one more card! So, I used the Operation Write Home sketch #154 (my favorite sketch for using up scraps!). I had 3 patterned scraps that were big enough to make 1.5 inch squares for the tiles and then I used a scrap of the green cardstock for my fourth piece. I stamped the little frog on that piece and I used the “you are toadally awesome” sentiment again. I backed my tiles on white cardstock and then added it to the green cardbase. I used a scrap strip of that striped pattern to go across the bottom and accented it with my sentiment circle.
The remaining scraps I had, I used on the insides of the cards. And that finished off this collection!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed these cards and found some more ideas to use with your kit.
For my first card I used the Little Lady collection from the kit. And I used the Flavor of the Month Card Sketch from the sketch sheet. I stamped the daisy from the Little Lady stamp set, colored the centers and fussy cut them out. I also used one of the sentiments from that stamp set.
I love that rainbow sunburst pattern! I matted all of my pieces on black cardstock to help them stand out. I also used the teal ribbon that came in this collection to wrap around my pink piece on the left. I stamped my sentiment from the Weather Together stamp set and then used the pink embossing powder that came in my kit to heat emboss it. I finished it off with some sequins from the kit.
I hope you guys enjoyed my quick cards today and I hope you’re all having a crafty day!❤
Teresa here jumping for joy because fall is right around the corner. Although I don’t live in an area where we experience fall, I do love several aspects of fall, pumpkin spice, falling leaves, and cute fall critters on cards.
I had quite a few mess ups on this card but I kept plugging through cause I was sure it would turn out okay in the end. I really like how it did turn out.
