Pinterest Inspired Layout by Yvette


Hi Scrapping Friends!

Today I'm sharing a layout I created from a Quilt I found on Pinterest!

Here's the Quilt design that inspired me...


I love the complete overall design and decided to use it as an inspiration to created my layout!

Here's what I did....


I started my layout by selection a few of Heidi Swapp foil pocket cards...draw a herringbone design to copy the design from the Quilt and then machine stitched.





I wanted to add some more texture to the background, so I added a strip of patterned paper from the Pink Paislee-Moonstruck collection...cover it with vellum and stitched around the edges.


Next step is to arrange the cards by added a small amount of adhesive to the tip of each one and added foam squares to the back to give it some more dimension. 



The next step is the created the circles, I used my Big Shot with a circle die cut to make a few different sizes and then arrange the circles to match the Quilt design! 
     



I kept the embellishments to a minimum to the left side of my page and created a little cluster using the Moonstruck rub-ons, with a few die cut arrows from the Ephemera-Moonstruck collection...

  
I hope I inspired you to create something beautiful!

Hi! My name is Katty Miranda, I am 31 years old. I live in Miami, FL. I am a proud mom 
of two boys, Brian who is 12 & Ryan who is 9. They keep me on my toes! I am a
scrapbooker, mainly 12x12. I have been getting into Mixed Media a lot more lately. I would
describe my style as modern eclectic. I love to try a little bit of everything. I began 
Scrapbooking in High School, about 13 years ago.  A friend of mine began a Scrapbooking 
Club and Introduced me to this amazing hobby, It was love at first sight. I've taken a few
breaks over the years when I had my kids but my love for scrapbooking has always remained. 
This community is truly amazing. I have made so many wonderful friendships with crafters 
from all around the world. I am excited to join this wonderful team as a guest designer. 
Thank you for having me. 

                                 
                                                                                                  Ashley Smith
Hello, My name is Ashley.  I live in Virginia with my husband, two children (11 year old twins), and three kitties. I was an elementary teacher, but now I’m a stay at home Mom who loves to scrapbook, read, and dream about travelling. 

I started scrapbooking almost ten years ago when my children were young.  I was walking through a bookstore, saw a scrapbooking magazine and was immediately hooked. 12x12 layouts are what I usually scrapbook, but I like to make mini albums, too. I would describe my style as colorful and bright.  I enjoy opening up a finished album and reliving my happy memories through pictures, stories, and pretty papers.

I’m can’t wait to work with the kits at My Creative Scrapbook as a guest designer.

                                 

                                                        Monique Liedtke 

My name is Monique Liedtke and I live in The Netherlands together with my husband of 20 years and 3 wonderful kids: 1 daughter (20) and 2 sons (17 and 12). I work part-time (15 hours a week) in an HR office 5 minutes cycling from home. Except for scrapbooking I do have a few other hobbies: reading, cycling, watching English detectives, traveling, walking, going to the cinema and aqua jogging.

I’ve been scrapping for more than 10 years now and can’t imagine life without it. From the moment I was introduced to this wonderful hobby I was hooked and that has never changed. Scrapbooking makes me happy, it’s what I love to do most. I love playing with paper, I love the colors, the designs, the smell & feel of paper. I love to collect everything scrapbook related. I just get so happy looking at scrapbook supplies! I also love to browse the web to look at other scrappers’ blogs and craft rooms, to look through galleries, magazines and Pinterest … everything. I’ve even chosen a part-time job instead of full-time so I would have lots of time to scrap!

Creating scrapbook pages is what I love and do most but I also love to make cards, home d├ęcor pieces, mini albums, decorate planners etc.

My style is colorful and detailed with a lot of sewing, layers and digital cut files.

I’m so very happy to be asked to guest design for My Creative Scrapbook and look forward to sharing my work with all of you. Thanks Pam for this wonderful opportunity!


        

                                                                      Maja Nowak

Hello! My name’s Maja Nowak, I live in the South of Poland with my university-sweetheart husband and two fantastic sons. I came by scrapbooking quite by chance in January 2008 – and that was it! Before that, I’d tried cross stitching, decoupage, knitting, painting and drawing, but scrapbooking gives you the freedom of using and combining many crafting techniques and materials, and perhaps that’s why I’m still in love with it JI feel most at ease in the vintage shabby chic style, but being a member of several design teams, and a mom of two boys, I sometimes have to “struggle” with other styles, though with various results My sons are the main subjects and inspiration of my “private” scrapbooking creations, but being a romantic&vintage style lover, I don’t hesitate to use pastel colors, lace or flowers in my LOs J On the other hand, creating to order fills my need to make something typically feminine from time to time.
I love all scrapbooking tools and materials, but I’m a hopeless stamp collector and pattern lover, and I can’t just go by a beautiful design on paper. J
I am truly honored and thrilled to be a Guest Designer for My Creative Scrapbook this month. Thank you so much for the chance to share my project with you!

                               

                                                                 Karolina Czajkowska

My name is Karolina Czajkowska, I'm 27 and I live in Poland. In a daily life I'm an architect, but architecture wasn't enough to express my artist soul. I started my scrapbooking adventure 4 years ago. I love all areas of scrapbooking but definitely my favorite style is mixed media. It's the best way for me to express myself and to make something extraordinary from common things. I'm so happy to be a guest designer at My Creative Scrapbook! 

                                 
                             
                                                                     Mary Catt  
                                                                       
I'm Mary Catt and I live in Greece with my husband and our three kids. I started scrapbooking almost three years ago and since then it has been my obsession. I'm a mixed media scrapbooker with a little vintage and some shabby chic touches. I like to test my creative ability and always try to improve my skills. I mostly do layouts but I love creating tags, cards, mini albums, canvases and altered items as well. I find lots of my inspiration in everyday life and when I scrap I feel so relaxed that I totally forget everything around me.
