Ribbons And Trims Organizer

Hello friends!
Today I am going to share my Earth Day project created for Graphic 45.

I am sure I am not the only one who uses an old shoebox to store stuff. In this case, I used my husband's basketball rubber shoes box. Well, obviously because it's bigger than my shoes' boxes lol


I've already been using this box to store some of my ribbon and trims stash. There is another shoebox waiting to be altered like this one. That is in my next to-do list.
I made the simple shoebox prettier with some Graphic 45 papers and Petaloo flowers.





 I used a template to cut the ribbon spools and some of the pockets and tags from the same paper collection

Here is a Snapguide tutorial showing you how I created this super fun project.


I hope you like it!

Clique Kits Pep Rally "Origins"

Hello everyone!
Welcome to Clique Kits April Pep Rally
This month, we are sharing projects created with the April kit "Origins"  featuring Simple Stories Life In Color collection and many other amazing products

Here is a couple of pages I created for this blog hop

"You and Me"
 Fussy cut several flowers from on of the patterned papers
layered pieces of cut apart and papers and thread 


I used foam tapes to add to some of the embellishments


"Memories Today"
This kit has several papers with a design similar to this. The others were even back to back to it's kind of difficult to choose which ones to cut if you only have one piece of each lol!
I already used several of the tags in this one. I carefully cut them in the middle.
Then I collaged several pieces of smaller papers and different die cuts to cover the holes.
 Using foam tapes is a great way to add dimension to your page
 I love the contrast of the white cardstock over the colorful background


Hope you liked my pages.. thanks for hopping along :)

Meanwhile, feast on the full May kit reveal!

Live, laugh, love

Hello!!!
I have a new layout I want to share with you all.
It's for Just Nick Studio and it's super cute, if I may say so :)


I used Clique Kits "Origins" using Simple Stories Life in color collection.
I made the background quite simple for this one to tone down the busy patterns of the papers I used. I made the circles using gelatos and watercolor pencils and watercolor brush. Dotted the circles with black pen afterwards.

Instead of brushing it on the paper, I dabbed them to the watered down gelatos to achieve the watercolor effect
To make the words standout, I lined it with brown pen
Wrote my journaling on the biggest circle. I scattered little hearts over the watercolor circles which I think is a totally cute detail.

Shabby desk organizer

It is second day of the Graphic 45 - May Arts Ribbons blog hop!
And my project is up on the blog today along with fellow DTs Arlene and Belly.
Check out the post to see all the wonderful projects we all did for the hop!

Here's what I created using Ladies Diary deluxe collection and May Arts Ribbons.

My desk is ready for spring! :)

 a closer look of the trim I used. 

I used thick cardboard for the main organizer.
I just love the patterns and colors in this paper collection!

I also made two coordinating small boxes for scissors and pens. I used a The Cutting Cafe template for those (ribbon spool box template). Ordinary cardstock were used for these instead of cardboard.


and here is how I used it on my desk. I love it!!! 


Hope you liked it too!

Enjoy the moment

Layering several cut files to add dimension is one of the things on my to-do list. I finally did it on this page. I adhered a couple of cut files kept it plain white to make it stand out against the colorful strips of papers

a closer look of the page details

I used "enjoy the moment" cut file for my page.
I used a gold paint marker to color the wood ribbon.

PageMaps + Just Nick

Hi all! I want to share this page I created using a PageMaps sketch and Just Nick Studio cut file.


I used the Doily Flower Background cut file as stencil. I used a thin acetate instead of paper. It took me a while to finish cutting it lol and I would choose a thicker acetate next time. It was too flimsy and I had to be really careful while lifting it from the mat.


I used the Clique Kits February Kit "Hot Mess" for my page
Here are more detailed shots of my page

Remember happy day

Join Clique Kits this month for another wonderful challenge!
I made a scrapbook layout using the February kit "Hot Mess" featuring Maggie Holmes' Shine collection, to hopefully get you inspired :)

The design process of this page is pretty straight-forward. I flicked some black ink on the background paper first and let it dry. After cutting the heart cut file by Just Nick Studios, I adhered a 6x6 paper from one of the add-on papers you can find in the CK store as well.  Then I used some light pink thread and bundled it up under the heart cut file, really messy bundle.
I just tucked here and there several of the die cut shapes from the ephemera pack. This kit is really jam-packed! You will love all the embellishments included! To make the photo pop a bit from the background, I adhere a slightly thick cardboard under it. Instant "foam tape".
I wrote my journaling stuff in random places and used stickers to decorate some of the spaces
