Happy Spring MCS step by step tutorial

Morning and good day to all! I'm here with you today to share a layout step by step tutorial. I had the pleasure of working with the colorful and Springy Creative kit from My Creative Scrapbook kit club. It was just a delight to work with as I love color and I tried to get as many colors on this layout as possible! I love the way it pops right off of the white background.

Happy Spring

And here is a view of that gorgeous Creative kit that I used:

Step 1: cut about 6 strips of pattern paper

Step 2: adhere to background paper and run through sewing machine to create lines across each strip of paper with the exception of the "happy spring" strip. Gently run your finger under each strip to curl the edges up. Just please be careful to not give yourself any paper cuts as we all know those stinkin' things HURT!! ;)

Step 3: layer a couple of pieces of pattern paper or card stock and adhere to your photo

Step 4: add some pop-dots to the bottom half of your photo. You won't need to add them to the top because of the raised elevation of the strips of pattern paper already on your layout...adhere to layout.

Step 5: Fussy cut a tag and some flowers.

Step 6: Adhere the tag directly under your photo using pop dots on the right side of tag. Add your flowers, heart punch and Happy Spring sticker banner.

Step 7: cut out a triangle of the flower pattern paper and adhere to the bottom corner

Step 8: cut two strips of pattern paper. Adhere the pink polka dot strip down first. Then adhere 3 pieces of ribbon on top. Use pop dots on the back of the rainbow stripes piece and adhere on top of the polka dot paper and ribbon. Add flower puffy sticker.

Step 9: add butterfly sticker, puffy "shine" sticker, and the "life is sweet" sticker around the top left of your photo.

And you are done! 

Thank you for visiting today and I hope you enjoyed this step by step tutorial!

May Creative kit *My Creative Scrapbook*

How is it possible that it's already May?!?! Surprised but NOT complaining! Summer is well on it's way and I welcome the warmer temps and the sunshine! 

This past month has been wonderful with all of the days of playing outside, Easter activities, playing with the newborn chicks and bunnies, and a new basketball goal! So with all that said, I have some new layouts documenting some of those activities. I've used my beautiful May creative kit from My Creative Scrapbook!

And here is a look at everything you get in that beautiful springy kit...

Please check out this kit along with all of the other wonderful kits at My Creative Scrapbook that are packed full of beautifully coordinated supplies!

You Are My Sunshine layout tutorial

I'm here with you today to share a step by step tutorial. I had the pleasure of working with the fun and whimsical MCS April creative kit that is filled with Photo Play's Bloom and Doodlebug's Spring Things.

And here is my layout...

Step 1: trim pieces from the pink Bloom paper.

I counted six lines and cut. Some were taller but that's ok because I wanted to give some variation to my fence.

Step 2: Trim a piece of yellow cardstock and glue to each piece of the pink Bloom fence post on the top and one piece of yellow cardstock for the bottom.

For my layout, I made 2 sets...one to go on the left side and one to go on the right but you could make one continuous fence.

Step 3: I trimmed the 2 strips from the Doodlebug Springtime Spots and adhered to a sheet of white cardstock. Then I ran it through my sewing machine with a straight stitch.

Step 4: I added some pink and yellow paint splatters and let dry. Then I adhered a set of layered patterned papers to be the base for my photo.

 Step 5: I adhered my fence pieces to my layout and before the glue dried I slid one of the Doodlebug trees behind the fence.

Step 6: I added an adorable little bee and some flowers to my fence.

Step 7: Using an exacto knife, cut out the outer circle of the Doodlebug You Are My Sunshine

Step 8: Adhere your photo first and then add the circle to layout

Step 9: Use pop-dots on the back of the Spring die cut

Step 10: And adhere to layout

Step 11: Cut 3 circles from pattern papers and glue them together. Glue button to the center to create a small handmade flower. Adhere the flower and banner to top left corner of layout. 

Your layout is complete now!
