Gorgeous Autumn mixed media layout - Falling Leaves Kit

Hello my fellow crafters, Lisa here to share the last page
I designed with the 'Falling Leaves' kit.


 This Blue Fern Studios collection is one of my top favourites. When I chose this paper called 'Birdsong' I knew I wanted to make something light and delicate with a vintage
look. I glued down some old piano music in the background and then added some of the Prima vintage ephemera, flowers from the Floral Add On, some chipboard and a few pine cones.

Here are a few close ups:

I hope you like it! 
See you soon, Lisa xo

Boo - tiful Halloween layout - October SOD kit

Hi everyone.  Sharon here sharing my first layout made with the awesome October Scraps of Darkness kit!  I absolutely love all of the wonderful paper and goodies contained in this kit.
I used paper from the Pink Paislee Spellcast collection as my background:

My completed page:

I decided to use a photo that was taken at a Halloween Party that I attended with my family and friends this year.  My friend's home was decorated to the nines - the spider in the photo is just a small part of the cool and spooky decor she had.  

In keeping with that theme, I used some of the fun items contained in the Fancy Pants ephemera pack:

And I enjoyed adding paint splatters using orange paint from the mixed media add-on:

I had a blast using the black and white flowers and black feathers that were a part of the main kit;  
and the beautiful black lace from the elements add-on:

Making this page was so much fun!!!

It was a quick and easy layout.  I find that you don't have to spend hours creating a scrapbook page when you have all of the right ingredients at your fingertips!

I hope you get a chance to check out the Scraps of Darkness store and Facebook page.  

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Happy Scrapping!!!

Mixed Media Monday - October SOD!

Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a fun and spooky Halloween this year!  My newest layout using the October, 2017 Scraps of Darkness Kit is titled "Boo".  I tried to make it a bit spooky and a bit cute, because my nephew's picture captures a bit of both.

It may be difficult to see under all the layers of gesso and modeling paste, but I used a layer of matte gel medium to adhere the Fancy Pants  ephemera under the layers of paint and texture.

I used the purple Petaloo flowers and the orange Prima flowers from the Floral Add On kit.

The black lace is versatile because it can be used on spooky halloween layouts and elegant layouts!

A nice final touch to the project was the Tim Holtz Halloween Shape Tokens.

Thanks for visiting today and have fun creating! :-)

Beautiful delicate layout - August Sparkle and Shine Kit

Hello My Lovelies!!!
I hope that you are having a wonderful scrappy time.

Today I am sharing a layout using the Scraps of Darkness August Kit "Sparkle and Shine".  It is such a soft, fun kit.  Have had such a good time creating with it.  My talented niece Dani Ulstad took this amazing photo of her sister and my other niece, Bre.  Just look at those gorgeous eyes!!!

I wanted to create a soft, feminine layout to match the feel of the photo.  I started by cutting 2 large squares in green and gray, as the background for the photo.  I inserted some sweet lace between the layers.  

I fussy cut the large flowers along the edges of the layout and lifted them up using some cardboard.  It gives so much dimension to a layout.  Before adhering these borders I layered some doilies to go under the photo and on the background.  There is a sweet crocheted one at the right far bottom.

After I got the photo and doilies in place I began to embellish the layout with chipboard, flowers and pearls.  Most of the flowers came in previous kits.  

I left the title naked to flow with the layout.  Such a perfect sentiment.  I hope you liked my layout.  Till next time.....please check back for more incredible creations from our Design Teams.
