Way up on the Mountain – Featuring BoBunny – Take a Hike By Kerry Engel Creative blocks? Do you every get them? Sometimes I move the photos around for days. They sit on the counter and everyday I come in and move them around until something jumps out for me. With this set of pictures my first impulse was my go-to “grid layout”. This layout sat on my counter for a few days, it felt sort of boring, it didn’t get my mojo going. That goofy selfie photo made me laugh and I felt like it should be the dominant photo on the page. I also wanted more white space. Something that is hard to do with a set of photos that filled their frames. I also wanted to create some movement, this is when I decided on this layout. After I figured out how I wanted to position my…

Hi Everyone! It’s Kelly here to share my new Double the Fun sketch and layout….for our Spring 2016 issue! A double sketch sure comes in handy for big events involving lots of photos, like my daughter’s Graduation last May. I think I will be scrapping those pics a lot especially because a really talented and creative photographer took them.  Thank you Madeline Ludlage Photography! I used mostly Momenta papers and products for the design. This gorgeous paper pack by Momenta is called “Perched”. This cardstock patterned paper has beautiful collage images on it. I used a pretty floral Momenta Stencil with a Faber-Castell Texture Gems Gel Liner on the right page. I also used this gold Gel Liner to add dimensional flourishes to each side of my title, which are Momenta alphabet stickers. This gorgeous layered Momenta bird die is so pretty with the embossing. I layered May Arts gold pearl ribbon…

Hello everyone!  It’s Kelly Klapstein here to share with you my new double layout sketch and design for the Winter 2015 page call!  Don’t hate me for saying the word, “Winter!” ha ha I fell in love with the new BoBunny “Sweet Life” collection and knew it would look perfect with some photos of my youngest daughter. I fussy cut some of the beautiful flowers and butterflies from the Bobunny patterned paper as embellishments. Those other pretty flowers are Bobunny too, but I felt they were a little too dark for my layout, so I took out some Clearsnap Colorbox Chalk ink in a white colour called “Popcorn” and altered the dark red flowers so they were lighter. The gold pearls in the flower centres are BoBunny Jewels. See those pretty doilies tucked behind my photos? I used the BoBunny Lace Stickable Stencil and Pastel Pink Colorbox Chalk ink to make them! I had never used these…

Hello everyone!  It’s Kelly here, and today I’m going to share a fun embellishment you can make for your scrapbook layouts or cards. For my newest Double the Fun sketch, I created this layout, celebrating my son’s Graduation: See those shiny silver stars?  They are made using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L foam shapes: 3D Foam Stars and Clearsnap foils!   In the package, the 3D Foam Stars are nesting, so you get an assortment of sizes. Here is a quick photo tutorial of how you can make your own shiny stars! Designer Foil from Clearsnap will help you make your stars silver. First, remove one of the star outlines from the sheet and place on any patterned paper. I used BoBunny’s Woodland Winter collection. Remove the adhesive backing from the 3D Foam Star and then press the Clearsnap Designer Foil directly on top.  You don’t have to rub, just press…
