Seas the Day – Scrapbook Subscription

I have chosen to work with this month’s Craft with Heart Scrapbook subscription pages.  The two layouts were perfect for the next lot of photos on my list to scrapbook.  If you haven’t seen these kits before, let me share a little about them.

The kits come with pre-printed pages and pre-cut elements such as photo mats and die-cuts, along with stickers, for two, 12×12 layouts.  You receive a full colour handout showing one way to use each design.  They don’t always exactly match the collection but they go with the theme.

Three ways to use the kits

  1. Copy exactly from the handout – this is the fastest scrapbooking you will ever do.  Don’t overthink it, just find photos to match the sizes on the layout and stick them down.  This is perfect for those times you are in a creative funk or you are short on time. 
  2. Follow the basic layout but tweak it to suit your photos and story.  It’s super easy to adjust photo placement or make room for a longer story by changing the placement of elements on the layout.  Both of my layouts are examples of this.
  3. Take the elements, add some goodies from your stash and create a unique layout of your own.  This is lots of fun if you have some special photos that you want to really pop on the page.

Tell your Covid-19 stories

The Oh What Fun collection is available until the end of December 2018.  Buy it as a full kit or purchase individual items.

Today I’m using my December Craft with Heart Subscription Kit which features the Oh What Fun collection.  The backgrounds are all pre-printed so there is no cutting and gluing required until you add the smaller paper pieces (which are also pre-cut) and embellishments.  This makes a super-fast project.  The kit includes stickers and die-cuts too. The top photo is my layout and the lower one is the one shown in the printed instructions that come with the kit.

My photos had a different orientation for the RH page and I needed to fit a few more onto the layout so I tweaked it a bit by cutting the light green paper piece in half and added the pieces above and below the photos.  I also added a Flip Flap.

I do love a bit of bling and wanted to personalise the layout to my style. I added some Silver Glitter Gems and Silver Embellishing Thread around the title and journaling box.   The silver thread will stick to the back of the title sticker making it easier to form the swirls.  You will notice some pink sparkly gems too –they are silver ones coloured with the Cherry Pink Shin Han Marker.
