1st Reveal- Scraps of Darkness April Kit- Lauras Wish

Hello Blog Friends! 

Today I've got a new layout to share featuring our April Scraps of Darkness Kit "Lauras Wish"                                
This fabulous kit is named after our own special social media director 
Laura Gilhuly. Each month our wonderful boss Melinda has been dedicating kits to her designers. She has been putting kits together that she feels includes things that particular designer likes and that goes along with their style. How lucky are we that we not only get to design for this beautiful kit club but work for someone who honors us in that way?

In case you missed the reveal of the kit here is a peek at the Main Kit photo and you can find our kits
>>>>>>>> Here

I never fail to get excited when a kit of mine arrives. It is an instant mojo boost. I always have more ideas than time.

I used a copyright free photo for this page. I created a very grungy mixed media page with lots of detailing. I used Lindys Mists in several colors to achieve the splashed look in the background.

Lots of layers with stamps and elements from the kit tucked in. 

I have soooo many stamps and I forget about them as I'm sure we all do when we start to acquire a lot of supplies. I have been making an effort to pull out old ones and use them. The camera and finger pointing hand worked so well here and they are both stamps I cut out to use as embellishments.

I've got flowers and die cuts from Kaisercraft tucked beneath my photo.

I love the color scheme with the Kraft printed paper along with blues, golds and red.

Lots of grungy stamps and paint. I also dissected one of Reneas butterflies yet again. Can you find the antennea?

That's the last close up for this one. I've got to go get started on another! 

In the meantime visit our facebook community and join in our swaps, challenges or just be inspired by our members and team!

Sweet Life Layout - BoBunny

Hello Friends!

Today I have a layout created with BoBunny "Sweet Life" collection. You can find all the beautiful papers in this collection >>>>>> HERE

Dreams Do Come True Layout By Lisa Novogrodski Using BoBunny Sweet Life Collection

I used a sheet of cardboard as my base and ripped the pattern paper on a diagonal. Then added some laces and tucked them underneath the tear!

I mixed in some embellishments from older collections. BoBunny collections mix so well. I used some chipboard pieces from Modern Miss.

BoBunny has a line of mixed media products which I love. The Bronze Glimmer Spray is my favorite and I've used it in several spots on my page!

BoBunny Sprays can be found >>>>>>>>> HERE

I used stitching around my layers, some modeling paste and stamps.

Some favorites I used on this page are Geometric Patterns, Stained Texture Stamps and Stitches which can be found >>>>>>>>> HERE

The large flower was created with a Heartfelt Creations Die I have on hand.

Thanks a bunch for stopping in! See ya soon! xo

3rd Reveal- Scraps of Elegance - March Kit

Hello Hello! Here I am again with another project to share with you all! I've been loving my March Scraps of Elegance kit to pieces! "Annas Daydream" it is titled after our own crazy talented designer Anna Rogalska

Our kits sell our out super fast so you may want to consider becoming a kit club member. Then you won't miss another!

You can find our store, available kits and subscriptions >>>>>> HERE

Melinda does a gorgeous job of coordinating everything from papers to florals to the tiny little embellishments that make a project perfect.

While others scrapbook to preserve memories and make the photo the reason for the page I scrap for the art of it. My pages are technique based and my photo is another artistic element to the page. I also enjoy photography and love to edit and play in photoshop.

This is a photo I had taken of my daughter by a talented photographer in my area. I used the Holly McCaig Border Effects Frame again on this one. I picked this digi kit up years ago at Two Peas but you might be able to find it somewhere else if you use Mr. Google!

Life Is Short Layout by Lisa Novogrodski for Scraps of Elegance using the March Kit "Annas DayDream"

On this page I mixed the Blue Fern Paper along with the Prima and 7 Dots included in the kit.

I used a ton of stamps on the background. I have a very large collection that I have acquired over the years and now have found mixed media to be the perfect way to make use of them. The layers of different stamps and inks makes for interesting textures and design.

This is a close up of the frame. Such a fun one to use! Lots of beautiful florals included in the kit. I used some splats of Lindys on there. The chipboard is Blue Fern- another item in our kits and once again I cut it up! I used chalk paint for that beautiful yellow tone then embossed it with Lindys.

I've told you in previous posts that chipboard isn't safe with me. I like to take it apart and use it differently on the page. Well apparently Reneas butterflies are not safe either. This one got bisected and tucked in. Can you find the other half?

Lots of splatters in the background, layered with stamping and modeling paste. We received a beautiful stencil in the kit and I've used it with paste and ink. I threw in a few sequins for shine and sparkle.
