"Hello Handsome" Masculine Card

Hello! It's Kelly here sharing a card using the sweet and masculine Hello Handsome collection. I love to make cards that look like shirts...It's even better if I have bow-ties!

I started by cutting a 1 inch slit down the top/center of a 4.25x5.5 piece of patterned paper. Folding the corners formed by the slit down, I creased them...making my 'collar'. I then adhered the patterned paper to the front of my card. I made the 'suspenders' by cutting a border sticker in half and sticking them down on both sides of the card, trimming off the ends.

Using dimensional tape, I stuck the bow-tie down under the collar...followed by a couple of threaded buttons. I finished up by popping up my sentiment sticker with foam tape, and placing it bottom/center.

Thanks for stopping by today!

"Hello" Floral Card

I love it when you can just whip up a simple card for a friend on the fly! Using scraps from previous SEI creations I was able to do just that with this simple "Hello" card here.

I used my sticker sheet from the Catalina collection that's filled with floral elements and used 6 flowers from the sheet. I used some of the Catalina collection's Sweet Calico patterned paper and some scraps from the Hooray! birthday collection and I added some of the rub-on/tape dispensed sentiments and was done!

That easy...and it turned out pretty cute too!

Nautical Boating Scrapbook Layout

Do you have favorite occasions to scrapbook? For me, vacations top the list. I love how looking at the photos brings back all the fun memories.

I created today's nautical-inspired layout to cherish our recent trip to Florida. I took tons of photos on our vacation, and trying to fit them all on one layout would be impossible! Rather, I selected just one activity -- a day on a boat -- to spotlight for a single layout. Selecting just a few photos helps avoid making the layout too busy. It also gives you room to play with decorative elements. I added a row of patterned circles and created a title embellishment in the center of the page.

Several of the recent Club SEI kits are perfect for scrapbooking summer vacations, like camping or beach days. Are you scrapbooking your vacations? Be sure to share a link in the comments!

Here's to reliving sweet vacation memories...

Dyed Home Decor Project DIY

Hello SEI Fans!! Piali here sharing a home decor project with you all.

I used lots of lovely SEI goodies for my project.

I used fabulous foiled paper from Sunshine Lemonade creative pack for the butterfly. Then, I added a crochet flower from Hello Handsome sundries pack.

I used Tumble Dye Neon yellow & Aqua for one of my banners.

I used SEI Tumble Dye Aqua, Neon Violet & Blue for the other banner.
I love the Glitter Tumble Dye spray, it adds lot of shine to various surfaces, I used it on the SEI lace doily, corrugated banner and the wood panel.

I finished the project with digital diecut floral and a stamped sentiment.

Hope you all like this home decor project!

Little Man Scrapbook Layout

Hello! It's Kelly here today sharing a layout made with the super adorable Hello Handsome collection. I couldn't wait to create a page with this collection using a photo of my youngest son wearing a little bow-tie!

I started this page with a plain piece of white cardstock, and a 6x9 piece of patterned paper. I layered a 3x9 piece of patterned paper and a 1x7.5 flag/banner on the bottom of my background piece. The photo went down on the center/left of the page, while I lined the right side of the page with different size squares. The top square is 3.5x3.5, and the bottom two measure 3x3.

I finished my page by embellishing the squares, and adding a bit of journaling to the bottom right corner.

Thanks for stopping by today!

"Happiness" Summer Scrapbook Layout

For this layout I used the Noteworthy Pre-Cut Layout kit. But instead of using the suggested layout ideas, I opted to change things up a bit and created my own layout using the papers and die-cuts avaiable in the kit. In addition to the kit I added one of SEI's little doilies too, I love those so much!!

Since this was a single photo layout I wanted to make sure my page didn't end up looking too bare, so I printed my journaling using my computer and printer and then cut it into strips to add a bit more interest to the page. The three dimensional stickers really added to the layout too and they have a bit of sparkle too which is fun.

Sometimes it's nice to capture random memories on the page even if it's just a moment captured in a single photo!

Bicycle Gift Bag

The May Club SEI Paper Crafting Kit is perfect for making projects all summer long. Today I'm sharing a birthday gift bag featuring this kit.

When selecting a patterned paper for a gift bag, look for big prints that will really pop on the front. The bicycle design on the sheet I selected is large enough that it won't get lost in the background.

Confession: I accidentally mismeasured the bicycle paper when I cut it. Oops! I intended to have it fill the whole front panel. But I'm actually happier with this result. The extra space at the top gave me the opportunity to add some of the fun metallic papers that are part of this kit.

The glitter paper really sparkles and a border sticker adds just the right amount of shine. Just keep in mind when adhering papers to the glitter paper -- even if you're using paper with a sticky back -- you will need to add extra glue. My adhesive of choice was strong red sticky tape.

A few stickers, some polka dot ribbon and colorful tissue paper finish this festive gift bag. It's all ready to be given to the birthday boy or girl! Stephanie

My daughter loves taking selfie and here is one of her selfie with her dad. As the girls are growing so fast, these moments are precious!!

The washi tape is a perfect match for this paper too!!

Beach Picnic Scrapbook Layout

Hello again! It's Kelly here sharing a summer layout using the Spring Picnic collection...and while spring picnics are lovely, I chose to use this collection for a beautiful summer picnic on the beach of Lake Michigan.

This time I started by making some pinwheels from a couple of the beautiful papers. While there are many tutorials on how to make these flowers, I cheated and used a die :)

For the layout, I covered about 1/3 from the top of a piece of white cardstock with patterned paper, and stitched it down. Using about 1/2 inch of the same paper, I did the same to the bottom overlapping my journaling card. I made a photo corner by cutting a 1 1/2 inch square of patterned paper diagonally, and layered it with my photo, 4x6 card, and 2 inch card close to the top of the page. After adding my title, I finished it up by arranging the pinwheels along with some stickers.

Thanks for stopping by!

"Lake Fun" Scrapbook Layout

This layout I actually used the Trendy Noteworthy Pre-Cut layout kit and challenged myself to come up with a new idea using the papers and some of the pre-cut elements from the kit.

In addition to the kit I also used some of the Metallic Basics Silver Alphabet stickers from SEI and the fun Decorative Tape patterned tape runner in the "Hello" theme. It was perfect for adding just a bit of interest to my layout.

For one of my photos I added some three dimensional adhesive stickers to adhere to my layout just to make that one photo stand out a bit from the rest. I love the subtle and summery colors of the Noteworthy kit's papers...they were perfect for my photos!
