Scrapbook Lay Out Using A Card Kit (Craft My Stash #7)


Hello! Are you a card kit subscriber? I am always tempted to subscribe to a card kit but I have fears of not being able to commit to it that I end up with months of untouched supplies. I have purchased maybe two card kits in my whole crafting life. The one I am using here is a Simon Says Stamps card kit that I have managed to keep in its original box except for the stamp set, which I have already used and placed it together with my other stamp sets. This is what I am featuring in this Craft My Stash post.

I have a Hallmark photo album and I ran out of the clear page protectors. I am left with the magnetic album refills which is standard to the photo album when I bought the album. The magnetic album refill measures 9" x 12". I trimmed my cardstock to 8 3/4" x 11 3/4" so I have some space to adhere the protective film to the magnetic sheet. The only setback with using magnetic album refills in scrapbooking is that adding dimension to the lay out can be a challenge when replacing the clear plastic film to the magnet. 

My photos are 3" x 4". The paper that comes with the kit is a 6x6 patterned paper pad from Pebbles. Instead of matting the photos with two different patterned papers, I cut a 6x6 patterned paper into half diagonally. I adhered each triangular half to a corner of a photo. 

Below are more close-up photos of the lay out and a brief description of the cluster of embellishments.

These strips are originally sized at 3" x 3" and a part of a cut apart sheet. Using a craft knife, I carefully cut the sentiments to create these strips.

I die cut another cut apart sheet using a Simon Says Stamp This Is The Life Frames cut die which cuts both the label and the outline frame. Since this sentiment is my main sentiment for this lay out, to make it stand out, I die cut a solid green cardstock for the outline frame. 

The card kit comes with these leaf sequins which I tucked underneath a gold foiled butterfly sticker that is also in the kit. I die cut a green cardstock using a scallop edged die from the Mama Elephant Borderline Trios Creative Cuts.

The numbers in this photo are a part of an alphabet/number patterned paper sheet which can be used as is or use the numbers to highlight a year.

I added a bit of journaling to complete the memory. I really enjoyed creating another scrapbook lay out that I can add to my album. I should really do more of this. I just need to learn how to print my photos in a smaller scale using my printer.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
