Guest Designer for C'est Magnifique Kit Club

1 comment:
Monday greetings to you! I am honored today to be a Guest Designer over on the C'est Magnifique Kit Club blog featuring some card and tag projects created with the C'est Magnifiique August 2015 Card Kit.

"Garden Trellis" (3"x 6")

I used a 6x6 piece of solid card stock from my stash, then folded in half for my base. It coordinated so nicely with the Bohemian papers by Dovecraft that are in the kit. I actually used the cover sheet of the paper pad and cut out a part of it for my first layer behind the trellis on the left.

Those shaped buttons coordinate perfectly and added so much character to the card! This card is made to fit into the smallest envelopes (6 1/8" x 3 1/2") included in the kit. The next several projects were made specifically for these envelopes.

"Lovebirds Tag" (3.5" x 6")

I started this by die cutting a tag from a cereal box, then cut the base paper and covered the printed side of the cereal box so that the back that shows is just plain kraft. The edges are inked, then using some stamps and items from my stash, I stamped designs in black and added a bit more texture using a stencil and glitter paste.

I spent some down time cutting out the birds and florals and had such a good time layering and collaging them into a lovebird design.  A little bit of vellum from my stash and the stripes and grid paper designs from the paper stack were a lovely contrast to the florals here.

"Thank You" (3" x 6")

For this card, I wanted to use the striped glitter paper for the background. I thought it would be interesting to contrast with softer elements like a doily, cheesecloth and decorative corners. The sweet Mini Satin Bows and the coordinating Adhesive Gems and Pearls included in the kit make it a breeze to find that perfect extra touch! 

"Lovebird Envelope" (3 1/2" x 6 1/8") 

I used the coordinating stamps in the kit to decorate one of the envelopes. I used watercolor pencils to color in the design, then water to blend it. Drops of Glimmer Spray were used as well. I added touches of Stickles to the flowers in the design.

"Enjoy" (A2 Card)

This card was created to coordinate with the cream A2 envelopes in the kit. I used some cream card stock for my base, inked the edges with Antique Linen ink, then added my layers. I used the sentiment stamp from the coordinating stamps for my banner tag.

Be sure to check out the C'est Magnifique Store to get your very own August 2015 Card Kit today! Thank you for having me back again as a Guest Designer.  I'll be back again soon with some more projects from this beautiful kit!

DCWV Mariposa Mini Book

Friday greetings to you!

I have a mini book project to share with you today that I've created for DCWV as a guest designer.

This is their Mariposa Mini Book and I just fell in love with the pretty design. There are many pages in the book and I chose to tear out a few to cut embellishments from.

This is a personal blog. All editorial content and projects are intellectual property of Scrappity Dappity Doo!. I do receive financial compensation and products from DCWV to develop certain blog posts, but all of the ideas and opinions noted are my own.

I decorated the spine with a few ribbons and metal embellishments from Blue Moon Beads.

The left page includes a page from that book that I tore out, then trimmed to use for my mat. A doily and tags finish the pockets on the right page. The black tab on top is an element included in the kit made of washi. 

For the design, I kept it fairly simple and am repeating a single photo mat to one side, allowing the pretty designs of the papers and book elements to shine.

I love this butterfly die cut.  The black frame behind worked so nicely to add interest.

Love the vellum pattern page and the soft texture it adds!

For these embellishments, I adhere the bottom only so the photo can be slipped in.

I used the craft and white mat stack and it worked so nicely against the red page.

This mini book is so pretty in person. The papers are gorgeous and the extra interior pockets are so nice to tuck all of your photos, notes and memorabilia into.  If you haven't given a mini album a try, this is the perfect way to jump in!

Thank you to DCWV for the opportunity to work with your products and design such pretty things. They make it easy to create a beautiful project with ease.

Wonder and Penny Emporium

No comments:
Happy Monday to you! I've got a BoBunny project to share with you featuring the very pretty collection called "Penny Emporium". It has a wonderful steampunk vintage flavor to it which is perfect for these photos that I took recently on vacation.


We recently toured the "The House on the Rock" in Spring Green, Wisconsin. It's an amazing place and takes quite some time (3.5 hours), but it is by far the most creative, incredible example of imagination and wonderful design that I've ever had the pleasure to visit. So many things just simply take your breath away just in scale and the sheer idea of it. These clock gears are one of the many items.

I've used our Clockwork Wood Shapes as the background anchor of the design. It's been sprayed with Bronze Glimmer spray. You'll also see one of the clock hands on the lower left which was touched lightly to still show the texture and design.
To keep with the playful nature of the images and the page, I stitched randomly to my photo mats and trimmed the tails loose, then left them in place for texture.

The Laser Cut Chipboard Tag was coated with some gesso, then misted with Sugar Glimmer Spray.

I used the current BoBunny sketch for our July Challenge to inspire this project. We would love to have you join us too!

BoBunny Products Used:
Double Dot Glimmer Spray: Bronze, Gold and Sugar
Wood: Clockwork Wood Shapes

July Sketch Challenge for Quick Quotes

Happy Friday!!! I'm excited today to host the Friday Challenge for July over at the Quick Quotes blog!

We are sharing some inspiration with a sketch from our friends at Sketchabilities for our challenge.

Sketchabilities #142 by

I used pieces from our July Club Q and created a sports themed page:

"This Happened"

The July Club Q features an all new collection which fun vibrant patriotic colors. The kits worked perfectly with the colors of our new baseball photos of the boys. I used pieces from the kits along with a few other random things to create my project. As you can see, I stayed very close to the sketch.

I used some glass beads and a heart stencil to place some subtle texture to the page along with Colorburst. Additional splatters of mist are added randomly. The top of the page you'll see more stamping with PowderPuff Chalk Inks in Midnight Confessions, Bloody Mary and Blue Jeans as well as a bit of washi tape and a button collage.
