Scrapbooking Inspiration: 2 beautiful layouts with the July kits


Kerstin here and I want to share my latest summery layout with our

I was inspired from our latest holiday trip.  The 'Hanse Sail' shall take place once at year 
on the Baltic Sea. 
You can see there very impressive windjammers, traditional ships and museum ships. 
It's really a highlight for me and my vintage soul, because I'm a big fan of old sailor ships.

Scraps of Darkness scrapbook kits: Nautical layout w/our July kit, by Kerstin F. Blue Fern Studios Wanderlust.

 I used a wonderful background paper from 'Wanderlust' Blue Fern Studios Collection, a printed chipboard shape and some stickers and elements from our last month kit.

 some chipboards from Blue Fern Studios were colored with white acrylic paint 
and embossed with 'Whirpool' Glitter Powder

printed chipboards are very stable, but I cut this piece in two halves, it's also possible

 I took some brown cardstock and stamped some nautical motifs with Stazon 'Spiced Chai'
I fussy cut them out
and glued only on some places stamp motif Flag banner
for a 3D effect

'Bon Voyage'

Hi, Tracy Funk back today to share my third layout using the gorgeous Scraps of Elegance July kit, "Country Chic".

Scraps of Elegance scrapbook kits: lavender/purple shabby chic layout w/our July2017 kit, by Tracy Funk. 49 and Market Cottage Life.
"Little Meghan"

For this layout I used the Main KitCoordinating Paper Add-onElements Add-on and Floral Add-on.

Main Kit
Coordinating Paper Add-on
Elements Add-on
Floral Add-on

I started with the Rooster Row paper from the 49 and Market Cottage Life collection included in the Main kit.  I then made a bunch of die-cuts from some white cardstock and from the Provence, Watering the Garden and Bicycle Ally papers from the Main Kit and Coordinating Paper Add-ons.  I layered each die-cut over a black cardstock version and offset them slightly to accentuate the edges.

I punched some tiny flowers using the Branching Out paper (in the Main Kit) and glued a single Lavender and Lace Prill in the middle of each one.

The chipboard pieces were from my stash.  I embossed them all with the Lindy's Stamp Gang Pop Rock Purple embossing powder included in the Main Kit.  I inked around the edges of the chipboard and diecuts with Blue Iris Colorbox Chalk ink.

All the other embellishments were in the Main Kit or Add-ons.

Thank you so much for taking a look!
