Oh So Lovely Gorjuss Girl!

I`m back today with a card featuring the Oh So Lovely collection from Kaisercraft and using the supplies from the Scrapendipity kit as well as a Gorjuss Girl image I had in my stash.

I used some of the woodgrain 12x12 paper and cut it to fit a 5x7 card and then layered on my watercoloured image of this sweet Gorjuss Girl. I used a Kaisercraft diecut tag, a sweet butterfly and some paper strips cut from the collection.


To watercolour this cutie I used the Julie Nutting hair and skin tone Prima Watercolor Pencils (Oh My Gosh they are amazing to use!!) for her face and hair and then Distress and Tombow Markers to watercolour in the rest.

Love the diecuts that are in the Oh So Lovely collection!

Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you have a very crafty and awesome week!

Fun Friday with Pam

Today I have a layout and a bit of thrift to share.
These three girls! 2 sisters and their niece.
 They have grown up close enough  in age to be three sisters
When Canadian Scrapbooker made the call a few months ago for Then and Now photos, I knew it was time to scrapbook this trio. Where did those little girls go? Looks like three gorgeous young women to me.

Being a thrifty scrapper, when I am using pricey paper with several layers. You got it! I cut the centers to use in smaller matting or different layers.

I do a dry mount fitting first. I start by lightly sketching the photo placement onto a plain piece of cardstock and building around the area. Eventually covering all the lines up so I can add the photo once the under layers please me.
Matt the photos before applying them and you will have a fast fun layout done. This one has a pocket to tuck the journaling under.
To see another Then and Now, visit me at My Blog Fairyrocks & Things

Thanks Pinterest for this one
Really cracks me up!

Scrappin' Michael Buble!

Happy Tuesday! Karla here, and I'm back today to bring you a fun scrapbooking post with pocket pages as well as traditional layouts!

My husband and I have never got to go out much since we've had kids, so it was a big deal to head out to a concert to see 'swoon' Michael Buble for our 5th Anniversary!  I just love his style, his voice, his songs!  It was such a lovely night out and I am so happy I dug out these pics to finally get this event scrapbooked!  I thought it would be perfect to use the wonderful new kit from Scrapendipity made up with tons of goodies featuring the Oh So Lovely collection from Kaisercraft! It is so beautiful! I'm loving the kit full of the papers and diecuts as well as cardstock, ribbon, Stickles, Distress Ink and more!

I added two of the 3x4 cards from the kit into my pockets and cut one of my photos so that each half fit into the center pockets. I layered on some diecuts and some Thickers that I had in my stash to complete my journaling card at the bottom.


On the second page I used more of the papers and journaling cards along with the oh so lovely ;) diecuts!


After filling my pockets I had a couple pics left over and wanted to do a couple traditional pages using this beautiful collection. Except for the Thickers letters, some sequins and baker's twine, everything was in the kit!



Here are a couple close ups of some of the details:



Thanks so much for joining me today! Hope you enjoy a very crafty week!

Fun Friday with Pam and the Prima Wooden Dolls


Imagine my delight when I opened my package of new
supplies from Scrapendipity and found these little gems.
These Prima Dolls come in a little jar.
 Each one is different and meticulously
 laser cut for stunning detailing.
 I couldn't believe my eyes when I pulled this
beautiful little witch out.
 I thought I would try the brad for her hat
and 'presto!' it fit perfectly.
I dug out the Smootch to carefully color bit of her
and a green band across her hat.
Here is a close up of her on the finished card.
I think it will make a fun embellishment
to a Fall or Halloween layout.
