Monthly Kits and Much More

Last day of the month it is.... time flies when you're having fun!
This first month on the DT has been good for me.
Erin, Julie and Noeleen... thank you for your guidance. It could not have been such a great month without you girls!
Also my fellow DT member, thank you for a wonderful and fun month! Let's rock the message board with our new challenges!
Now I do have a technique to show you, get yourself a nice cup of coffee and don't throw away the left over, just rub it over your paper for some good distressing!For this layout I started with tearing strips of paper and glued that to a piece of cardstock, then I rubbed the coffee left over, over the papers and there you go... one good smelling distressed page. Leave it dry overnight.

Here's how it turned out:

This is a really old photo, which I scanned and printed.
I believe it's the only photo from my great great (great) grandmother.
See the wooden shoes? I think she's doing laundry here. What a life.......


Another thing I would like to share with you is to recycle your package.
Some manufactors have wonderful things like this tag from Kaisercraft.
Prima is also a good one to use the package. So take a good look before putting it in the bin!

These layouts were made, ofcourse, with the July kit.
Hope you've enjoyed it as much as I did and wait till you see August.....
again a wonderul pick by Erin!

Thank you for looking, see you at the message board!



Now, here is my super fast and in a hurry way to faux stitch on any of your projects. I know that
there are tons of different ways to accomplish the look of stitching without actually having to break out the sewing machine, and I just wanted to share with you my technique that takes literally only a few seconds to add a short strip of stitching to your layout, card, or project.Within minutes you could even add an entire stitched border or more, the possibilities are endless!

Step #1. Add dots with a pointed tipped thick marker (my favorite for doing this are the medium sized Sharpies) to look like the holes that would be punched by the sewing machine needle.

Step #2. Use a thin tipped marker (my favorite is the thin end on a ZigWriter from EK) to draw a line over the dots acting as the thread.


And it's easy as that!! The great thing about this is that you can stitch in tons of colors without ever having to change out thread and there are so many shapes and designs that you could use!!


I hope you all give this a try, I'm completely hooked!

Have a fantastic Friday,
Hi!

July is almost over, but there's still  few July card kits left in the Treasured Scrapbooking store! The July kit "Destination Unknown is filled with fabulous papers, ribbons, bling and more! You can create so much from it! I made four cards and layout, plus Elisabeth did the same. You could easily make both our projects and still have materials left to make more goodies.

In case you haven't seen the kit yet here is a peek and some of the projcects I completed.






For more projects made with this fantastic kit and the Scrapbook kit check out the Treasured Scrapbooking design team gallery.

Thanks for stopping by! - Sarah E
Hi all,
well, this has been a fun month for me.
Joining the TS DT this July was so good! It's been so much fun so far.
First I'll show you sneak peaks of the second July kit reveal first this saturday. I have been scrapping during my vacation and that was so much fun!


My challenge for this month is PAINT! You know I love my paints, in any possible way so that had to be my first challenge on the message board. Instead of the Distress Inks that I usually work my edges with, I used lots of paint, also on the photo.

The MM paint was so right for this Crate paper.
Even the flowers are painted with the MM colors

And this cute heart and arrow, by Maya Road, painted with MM and finished with Glossy Accents


The next thing I had to do for the DT was making a sketch.... oh dear... this is my first.....

Not that bad he?!?

I used the TS July kit for this. Have you seen the kit? It's amazing!


If you are not already a part of our lovely TS family, do join us at the message board and gallery, come in and introduce yourself, we can always use a new family member! Do the fun challenges and show of your work and become layout of the day!

Thank you for looking, talk to you soon

So you know how you buy all those scrapbook magazines? You flip through the pages looking for inspiration, earmarking you favorite things. Well…guess what don’t just flip through magazines, flip through the treasured gallery! There are so many layouts, cards and altered items to inspire you for a life time. I have been spending a great deal of time flipping through the gallery lately and I have found some real treasures. And the best part…it’s all free! You can flip through at any time day or night. When you’re up late cause you can’t sleep, guess what? The gallery is there. New items are uploaded every day, so there is always something new to get those creative juices flowing. Here are a couple of layouts that have caught my eye when I’ve been cruising lately.

Hi everyone!!

Hello everyone! I was so thrilled when I opened up my Treasured Scrapbooking July kit,
so full of yummy vintage looking papers and pearls, flowers, tags, and buttons galore!
I just wanted to share with you two of my layouts that I created with this July kit.
This first layout contains photos of our town's 4th of July parade and was chosen as the
Week #9 traditional scrapbook layout winner for the Examiner.com in their scrapbooking
section. The second layout contains a photo of our newly adopted lab, Franklin, that we love
dearly. You just have to love the versatility of all the products in this TS July kit, the posibilities
are endless!! Make sure you check out the TS gallery for more DT inspiration using the July kit
and also the TS store to purchase your own kit.



Have a fantastic Thursday,
-Sarah

Hello all, Elisabeth here. With CHA right around the corner, tiss the season for sneak peeks.  In the spirit of sharing, I thought I'd post a few snippets of the upcoming card kit for July.  I think my favorite thing about this month's kit was how versatile it was.  From Simple CAS cards, distressed and grungy, shabby chic to bold and geometric, you can do it all with this one kit!







Hello everyone! Sarah E here with my very first post for Treasured Scrapbooking!!! I have been hanging out on the TS board on and off for a few years now and I am sooooo excited to be a part of this team!!! For my very first challenge I decided to keep it simple so everyone would feel like they can participate. I chose to do a technique that I personally love - fussy cutting! It is my favorite way to embellish pages, cards and other projects cheaply and quickly. Plus the embellies always match the paper since you cut it right out from there. You have to love that!!

I chose this paper from the Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker Willow Bee collection:


I used two sizes- a 12x12 sheet and 6x6 sheet. I cut flowers out from both sheets and layered them on my card with foam tape.


For this challenge cut out something big, something small, something fancy or something plain. It's up to you!! Upload your finished cards to the TS gallery and link in this POST for a chance to win a $5.00 gift card to the TS store!!
