Hi!  I’m glad that you’re back for Part 3 of my 2018 National Scrapbook Day layouts!  The National Scrapbook Day materials are such a happy collection of papers and stickers and are perfect for photos of a birthday party!  Stay tuned as I still have two more layouts to share with you.

The National Scrapbook Day Kit, Papers and Stickers are exclusive items only available from a CM advisor.  If you don’t have an advisor, I would be glad to help you get the items – just send me a message!

Last weekend, I attended an event for Creative Memories advisors, and this is my interpretation of a page sketch that was shared with us.  I used two sheets of white cardstock as the base of these pages.

The wide border consists of multi-colored pieces that measure 12″ x 1″ and 12″ x 1/2″.  I cut these pieces in relation to the pattern on the paper.  I wanted the rows that had yellow scallops.  The four royal cardstock strips are 12″ x 1/4″, and the green striped piece is 12″ x 3″.  I used the Original Border Maker System with the Button Cartridge to punch the final piece of the border.  The title stickers are adhered with Foam Squares.

I used the Custom Cutting System with the medium sized Circle Cutting Pattern and the blue blade on the inside edge to cut the three circle pieces at the bottom of the page.  The stickers are adhered with Foam Squares.

I cut the circles for my ice cream cone using the Custom Cutting System with the medium-sized Circle Cutting Pattern and red blade on the inside edge.  I started with a 2-1/2″ x 3″ rectangle for the cone.  To make a cone shape, cut on a diagonal from the top corners down to the center of the bottom edge. I cut the cherry from red cardstock using the smallest Circle Cutting Pattern and the blue blade on the inside edge.  I highlighted the cherry with the Silver Metallic Dual-Tip Pen, and adhered it with a Foam Square.

My photos are 4″ x 6″ and 4″ x 4″, and my photo mats are 4-1/4″ x 6-1/4 and 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.  For my journaling, I drew uneven wavy lines to write above.  And I finished the layout with faux pen stitching using the Dual-Tip Black Pen.

See you back here tomorrow!  Happy Scrapping!

2018 National Scrapbook Day Layouts – Part 2

KarynCropsWordpressNSDLayouts2 - Page 079

Welcome back for my second layout featuring the exclusive National Scrapbook Day Kit, Papers and Stickers from Creative Memories!  These materials are super cute and perfect for pages featuring children.  I still have 3 more layouts to share, so make sure to come back and visit with me over the next three days.

If you don’t have a CM advisor, I would be glad to mail these exclusive items to you as they are only available directly from an advisor.  The kit is $12.50, and the coordinating paper pack is $5.00 – plus everyone who purchases from me will also receive a coordinating sticker strip for free.

As with my first layout, these pages also started as single pages that I later put together as a double-page spread.  If I had started as a double-page layout, I would have done something different with my banner stickers.  But since I had already added the faux pen stitching, I decided not to move them.

KarynCropsWordpressNSDLayouts2 - Page 080

For the first page, I used the orange print paper as the base and added a 6″ x 12″ piece of the green striped paper.  I punched an edge of the white print paper with the Original Border Maker using the Scallop Dot Cartridge and cut it off of my paper at 2″ wide.  The peach patterned strip is 3/4″ wide.

To make my ice cream cone, I cut my photos using the Custom Cutting System and the smallest circle cutting pattern with the red blade on the outside edge.  The yellow print, red cardstock, and royal cardstock photo mats were cut on the outside edge with the blue blade.  The cone piece is 4-1/2″ wide and cut on a diagonal from the outside corners to the center of the bottom of the piece.  I matted the “cherry on top” sticker with a red cardstock circle cut from the medium circle pattern on the inside edge with the blue blade.  It is adhered with a Foam Square as are all of the other stickers.

The orange print paper is also the base for the second page.  The green striped strips are 3/4″ and 2″ wide.  The wide scalloped border is 1-1/2″ wide, and the peach print strip is 3/4″ wide.  My two photo mats are 6-1/4″ x 4-1/4″, and my six photos are cropped to 1-7/8″ x 4″.  All of the stickers are adhered with Foam Squares.

Lastly, I used the Dual-Tip Black Pen to add some faux pen stitching.  I love how the simple use of a pen can add so much to a page!

I’ll see you here again tomorrow with another National Scrapbook Day layout!

2018 National Scrapbook Day Layouts – Part 1

With National Scrapbook Day right around the corner, I thought that I would share some layouts that I made with this year’s exclusive National Scrapbook Day Kit and National Scrapbook Day Paper from Creative Memories.  These materials are only available directly from a CM advisor.  If you don’t have an advisor, I would be glad to mail a set to you.


The kit comes with instructions to make two double-page layouts.  But I decided to combine materials from the kit, the coordinating pack of paper, and also the exclusive individual sticker sheet to create my own pages.  I went a little crazy, and used most of two kits, two packs of coordinating paper, and two of the single sticker strips to make 5 double-page layouts of photos from my granddaughter’s last birthday.  If you love these materials and my pages, you might want to get 2 packs of each as they are limited edition items.  Please keep checking back as I’ll be sharing a different two-page layout with you over the next 5 days!

At first, I made these as individual pages but decided that they would work together as a double-page layout.  I love the bright fun colors, stickers, and my large cherry embellishments on these pages!

To start, cut the background papers to 11-1/2″ x 11-1/2″ and adhere to pieces of 12″ x 12″ royal cardstock.  To conserve cardstock, you may cut out the centers of the royal cardstock first.

KarynCropsWordpressNSDLayout1 - Page 082

To make the border, punch one end of the blue paper using the Original Border Maker with Scallop Dot Cartridge.  Cut off of your paper at about 2-1/2″ wide.  Add a 1/2″ yellow strip and a 1/4″ dark orange strip.  Punch small circles from yellow paper, and start layering the circles with your stickers.  I cut my stickers off of the sticker sheet with scissors and played with my positioning before removing the backing and adhering them to the page.  I also used Foam Squares on most of the stickers.

KarynCropsWordpressNSDLayout1 - Page 083

To create the cherry journaling box, use the largest circle cutting pattern from the Custom Cutting System.  Use the blue blade on the inside edge to cut a circle from white cardstock and the green blade on the inside edge to cut a circle from red cardstock.

To create the stem, I used the medium sized circle cutting pattern with the blue blade on the outside edge to cut about a quarter of the way around the cutting pattern.  Without moving the paper or the cutting pattern, I used the red blade on the outside edge to cut in the same spot.  To make the leaves, I used the inside cutting edge and the green blade to create teardrop shapes.  I adhered my top leaf with Foam Squares.

I used the same technique as above to create my double cherry embellishment on the second page.  The smaller cherry is cut from the smallest circle cutting pattern using the red blade on the inside edge.  I used the blue blade on the inside edge of the medium sized circle cutting pattern to cut a red cardstock circle for the sticker.  I adhered this finished piece and the top leaf with Foam Squares.

KarynCropsWordpressNSDLayout1 - Page 084

My photos are cropped to 4″ x 4″, and my mats are 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ and cut from royal and red cardstock.  I cut the border sticker and adhered with Foam Squares on the top and bottom of my photos.

KarynCropsWordpressNSDLayout1 - Page 087

Lastly I used our Red Dual-Tip Pen to add faux pen stitching around the scalloped edges of the border sticker on the top and bottom of the photos and also on both sides of my side border.  I used the Red and Green Dual-Tip Pens to add faux pen stitching around my cherry journaling box and embellishments.  I also used our Silver Metallic Dual-Tip Pen to add a little detail to the small cherry.  I love how the addition of the pen work really helped to make these pages pop!

Please send me a message if you need helping purchasing these materials, and please check back tomorrow for another double-page layout!

Fall Blog Hop

Hello and welcome!  My friends and I at Creative Life Scrapbooking are so glad that you’re joining us for our Fall Blog Hop!  After you finish looking at my projects, click on the link at the bottom of my post to hop over to Stefani’s blog to see more ideas.

Today I’m sharing scrapbook pages using all of Creative Memories fall themed products!  I made my first page using the Exclusive Limited Edition Croptoberfest 2017 Project Recipe Kit.  This kit contains decorative paper, stickers, cardstock and instructions to make two double-page layouts and is only available to purchase directly from a CM advisor.  Instead of using the kit instructions, I used the materials to make my own fall themed page.

KarynCropsWordpressFallBlogHop - Page 095

Use a 12″ x 12″ white scrapbook page or piece of white cardstock as your base.  From the decorative paper and cardstock in the kit, cut a variety of strips of varying widths and 6″ in height.  Using CM’s Original Border Maker System with the Zig Zag Cartridge, punch three borders from the orange print paper and cut each in half.  From green floral print paper, cut a 12″ x 1/2″ strip.  Using the Border Maker with the Scallop Dot Cartridge, punch a border from the teal cardstock and cut off of your cardstock at 2″.  Assemble page as shown adding stickers and faux pen stitching as shown.  I used Foam Square Adhesives to adhere some of my stickers.

I used CM’s Limited Edition Toil & Trouble Paper Pack and the Exclusive 2017 Croptoberfest Cardstock for my second page.  This pack of cardstock coordinates with all of our fall collections and can only be purchased directly from a CM advisor.  To make my page, use the cream cardstock in the pack as the base of the page.  From the floral designer paper, cut a 3″ x 12″ strip.  From the teal dot paper, cut a 2″ x 12″ strip.  From wood print designer paper, cut strips that measure 1″ in height and notch the ends with scissors.  Thinly mat the wood strips with the dark orange cardstock.  Cut two 6-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ photo mats from the dark orange cardstock.  Using the Maple Leaf Punch, punch 6 dark orange cardstock and 6 orange print leaves.  Assemble page as shown adding title with CM’s new Burnt Orange ABC Letter Stickers.

The Countryside Comfort Collection was perfect for my last three fall pages.  To make the page above, cut bird print paper to 11-1/2″ x 11-1/2″ and adhere to a 12″ x 12″ piece of brown cardstock (To conserve cardstock, cut out a hollow square frame from the center of the cardstock first.)  From brown cardstock, cut a photo frame to 10-7/8″ x 4-1/4″.  Crop photos to 3-1/2″ x 4″ and adhere to mat.  Use CM’s new Victorian Fence Punch to punch a fence from brown cardstock and adhere underneath the top of the photo mat.  Using the Border Maker with new Pumpkins Cartridge, punch two borders from brown cardstock and one border from orange print designer paper.  Adhere the two brown pumpkins border together, and then add the orange pumpkin border onto the top adhering with Foam Squares.  Adhere border to bottom of photo mat.  From brown cardstock, use Maple Leaf Punch to punch 20 leaves.  Use Maple Leaf Punch to punch 10 leaves from gold designer paper and 10 leaves from orange designer paper.  Mat the leaves and assemble as shown.  Adhere the top 6 leaves with Foam Squares.  Add titles using the new Everyday Sentiments Embellishments.

To make my second Countryside Comfort page (above), cut wood print paper to 11″ x 11″ and adhere to top of the plaid paper.  (To conserve paper, cut out a hollow square frame from the center of the plaid paper first.)  Using the Border Maker with Scallop Dot Cartridge, punch a border from orange paper, cut off of your paper at 2″, and trim to 11″ wide.  Using Victorian Fence Punch, punch a fence from brown cardstock, cut to 11″ wide, and trim as shown.  From floral print paper, cut a 11″ x 3/8″ strip and thread through the fence piece as shown.  (See photo below.)  Using the Custom Cutting System with the largest Circle Pattern, cut a circle from floral paper using the green blade on the outside edge.  Cut a circle from brown cardstock using the blue blade on the outside edge.  Crop photos to 3-1/2″ x 4″ and mat with orange paper cut to 3-3/4″ x 4-1/4″.  Assemble page as shown adding banners, a journaling box and Countryside Comfort stickers as shown.  I used Foam Squares for my banners and stickers.

For my last page, I used paper, stickers, and variety mats from the Countryside Comfort Collection.  I also used the November Sketch from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine as my inspiration.

To make the page above, cut the white/grey print paper to 4-3/4″ x 10″ and mat with a 5″ x 10-1/4″ piece of navy cardstock.  Mat the two variety mats with navy cardstock cut to 1/4″ larger, and add photos that are also matted with navy cardstock.  Using the Victorian Fence Punch, punch fence pieces from the white/grey print paper and navy cardstock.  Using the Custom Cutting System with the heart from the Gemstone Patterns, cut a heart from orange print paper using the red blade on the outside edge and cut a second heart from navy cardstock using the green blade on the outside edge.  Use CM’s old Daisy Punch and Maple Leaf Punch to punch flowers and leaves from wood print and orange print papers and navy cardstock.  Assemble page as shown adding stickers and using Foam Squares to adhere the flowers and the bird stickers to the fence.
