LW I'm a GIRL, what's your superpower?

Hi scrappy friends and happy Monday! I'm here with you today with a layout that I had to create as soon as I saw this phrase cut from Lori Whitlock. I think it is adorable and it was perfect for this picture of my daughter and her friends. I also brought in a couple more cuts like the sweet little bird, cute dog, and flower. I also used the bright and beautiful papers from Let's Be Mermaids.

Cuts used: 
I'm a girl...superpower? - Lori's site   Silhouette store
Dog/flower - Lori's site    Silhouette store

Thanks for stopping by today and happy crafting!

MCS Tag Tutorial

Hello friends! Today I have a simple tag tutorial! I love adding tags to my layouts and cards so I wanted to share my thought process on creating some great tags.

For the first tag, I wanted to use that great Heidi Swapp Minc circular stencil that comes in the My Creative Scrapbook April creative kit. I have been on a kick of watching all of the great Jennifer McGuire YouTube videos...she is amazing when it comes to stamps, inks, and stencils!! I was completely wowed when I saw her "Rotating Stencils" video (click here to see) and knew I had to try it! 

I pulled out my Distress Oxide ink pads in the colors of Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick and my Moonlight White pigment ink pad. I started off with a 4" x 6" piece of smooth white cardstock and followed Jennifer's instructions from the video. I used the darker color first and ended up with the white as the top layer. After the inks were dry I cut my paper into a tag.

Here is a look at the 3 tags bases before I added embellishments...

Here is a close up of the tag that I used the Rotating Stencil technique on. I used 2 strips of washi tape on the bottom but one of the pieces I cut in half length wise. The "choose joy" piece is from the ephemera pack that comes with the kit.

The next 2 tags were just pattern papers for the base tag and embellishments from the Creative kit.

And here are the projects that I used my tags on...

I hope this tutorial gets those creative juices flowing and gets you to creating some tags of your own using any one of the beautiful Spring themed from My Creative Scrapbook.

Lovely Girls step by step tutorial

Hello friends! I'm back today with another fun step by step tutorial for you using the My Creative Scrapbook Creative kit! I love all of the beautiful flowery papers and spring inspired embellishments in this month's creative kit! It was the perfect kit to document my daughter and her friends getting together to do each other's make up and hair.

I used the fabulous March Creative kit for this layout...

The first thing I did for this layout is apply a few of the rub-ons onto a sheet of smooth white cardstock and cut them out. With them having a white background, I can place them anywhere on a layout or card.

I wanted my layout to have a splash of color so I added some Gesso and aqua blue paint in a circular motion using a make up sponge to the white cardstock.

I layered my picture with a couple of beautiful patterned papers...

and used some pop dots on the back so it would raise my picture up and I could place some of the chipboard pieces behind it on my layout.

Next, I placed my picture onto the layout, added those beautiful flower chipboard pieces and my title.

Next came the rub-on pieces that I added to white cardstock.

For the bottom corner, I trimmed the bottom off of the Love sticker and added one of the brads. Then layered it with the flower and tag stickers.

Here are a few close up shots of all the layers I was able to achieve with all of the fun embellishments from the kit.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that it gives you many ideas of  fun layouts you can create with your creative kit!
