Treasured Scrapbooking monthly scrapbook and card kits

Treasured Scrapbooking

Monthly Kits and Much More

Hi all,

Last day of the month it is again..... time flies when you're scrappin, right?
Have you checked out (and ordered) the August kit yet? It's such a fun kit to work with. And there is so much stuff in it. Lots of paper, all double sided. As you have seen in my last post I made a layout with it, now I've made a mini album and two more layouts and I'm still not run out of paper! Is that a great kit or what?!?
Let me start with my mini album.
Totally made out of tags, cut out of thin cardboard, then I glued some papers to both sides.
For the first and last page I had some acrylic sheet laying around (Hambly's) that's also easy to cut into shape.
Sprayed both with Glimmer Mist and Chalkboard. Let that dry over night.

I made a collage of the pages cause otherwise this would be a very very long post!

This is the last page on the inside, a journaling about a wonderful day that my parents, my kids and I spent in the city were my dad, my kids and I were born.

The next thing I want to show you is my layout, started with white Bazzil cardstock, Glimmer Mist and Tim Holtz' masks.

Yep, that's a photo of me!

The roses are from the Prima paper, cut out and I used some glaze on it to make it shine.

Don't you just love this butterfly? It's cut out of the Hambly paper, misted with Glimmer Mist and I used Stickles around the edges. A smaller butterfly I attached on the wing.

My second layout started with making a piece of paper wet and started crunching it.
It looked a bit like a candy wrapping so there you've had the title!!!
Here also some misting with Shimmerz Spritz (bed of roses, my fav!)

My mum made the doily. Isn't it sweet (and so is she, thanks mum!)

Well ladies, show us your work with this gorgeous kit,
Good luck on round two on the message board, it's so much fun!
I can't wait to get started on the September kit, it will be special!
Have a great and creative time, till next time!
I absolutely LOVE organizing and finding decorative
storage solutions, especially for my scraproom. My
favorite thing is to shop garage sales and thrift stores
to repurpose and item that will bring beauty and
organization to this sometimes very messy and
chaotic hobby that scrapbooking can be!! Here are
a few of my cleaned up, repainted, and repurposed
finds that I've included in my scrap space.

this thrifted wire basket hold my mini albums

these baskets found at garage sales hold my cards

thrifted shelf hold stamps and $2 curtain rod holds
my spools of ribbon

this wooden shelf and vintage picnic basket both
found at garage sales hold my felt and fabric collection
basket on top also found at a garage sale hold part of
my ribbon collection

I hope that this may help you to come up with
some ideas to get those rooms organized...if you're
like me, it's always an ongoing process so I'm never
quite finished with the decorating and organizing.
I also have articles in the past two months
Treasured Scrapbook newsletters that are on this
same subject of organizing solutions. Check out
HERE to sign up and recieve the TS newsletter.
You can see more photos of my scrapspace or ask
me any questions HERE.

Have a wonderful Monday,

Hi everyone and welcome to another blogpost by yours truly, Mieke.

Today I want to share with you my sketch that I made for the August kit reveal on Aug. 15th. This kit is so much fun, it has the most wonderful colors in there. Lots of different manufactors, a lot to choose from.
Don't you think that little bird house is so cute?!

I like to do my sketches by hand, simply on 12x12 white cardstock

I was playing around with a mask and some Shimmerz Spritz and this is how it turned out:

That sketch turned into this layout:

Our daughter can still smile as bright, I love this photo of her.

Used lots of spays, strips of paper and I cut out a strip of the Hambly screen and glued that on with Rangers Glossy Accents. The butterflies are from a Spellbinders die, used my Cuttlebug for that. The orange strip under the photo is a piece of the soft ribbon in the kit.

The mask is by Tim Holtz, alpha is stamped.
Please join me in this sketch, hope you like it and do let me know if you've used it!

Here's a little sneak peak of the mini album I did for the 2nd reveal on the 24th of this month.

Hurry to the store if you want this kit, I believe there are a few left!
I'll be back in about a week to show you more,
Enjoy your sunday and have a creative week!

I have decided that my DT challenge for August will
be to pack on those photos!!! I am challenging you to
use at least four photos on a single page layout.
Many times we use only one or two photos on a page,
and that's perfectly fine, but I wanted to use more of
the photos that I take and if you're like me then there
are about twenty photos taken every time you pick up
the camera. I wanted to get out of the habit of just
chosing the two best photos and use more of them to
help convey more of the story. So get out that entire
stack of pictures and Pack 'Em On!!!!

Here are two examples of using for or more photos
on a single page to help get your juices flowing.

'Crazy 4 Silly Bandz' was created using the
Treasured Scrapbooking August kit.

Have a wonderful weekend,
Hello everyone, Elisabeth here...writing to you from cloudy, rainy New Jersey!  Yes, the humid heat has finally broken and today we are enjoying 75 degree weather.  Enough chit chat, let me get right down to what I came here give you a bitty sneak of the August Card Kit that's going live in a few are gonna love this one!

Every month the design team member over here at treasured post a challenge. This month Mette’s challenge struck a chord with me so I was super excited to participate. Her challenge is to scrap with a non human subject. I have had a picture that I’ve been wanting to scrap since my son’s first day of school last September…and this provided me the perfect opportunity.
I wanted to keep this layout simple as the subject and the idea behind it is simplistic. I came home after dropping my little guy off at kindergarten for the very first time…and there sitting at his spot at the table were his tea cup and his toy…so the journaling is all about how big that little toy felt with my sons new absence. Something so small, was so overwhelming…because of the idea behind it. For me the toy was a symbol…a picture in time of a very significant moment in our family life. And the elephant transparency just went perfectly with my concept for this layout. Yay for the treasured kits!
So anyhow…this was just a little piece of me that I wanted to share with all of you…thanks for looking:)
"it's crazy how something so small can feel so big"

Hello everone, Liz here. Can you believe its August already? Where has the time gone?? One of my kids already started school for the year. Crazy!

Every month the DT here at Treasured Scrapbooking creates a sketch and LO to go with it. Here's one that I made and I used the new August kit for my supplies.

I love all of the colors and patterns in this kit, it makes me happy. Be sure to check out the other DT member's sketches and projects HERE.
I just love the August card kit!! I could not believe how cute it was when I ripped open the box!! The papers, the embellies, I wish I could spill more, but I can't right now. The full card kit reveal will be August 15th. Until then here's a few peeks to get you thinking................... ;)

Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to share my full reveal with you on the 15th. I will also have a bonus make N take cared in the August newsletter. If you haven't signed up yet go to the TS site HERE and sign up today! ------------------ Sarah E

Lately I received this magazine, with an article titling: "The Creativity Crisis: research shows that american creativity is declining" (What went wrong and how we can fix it...)
As an european, that made me laugh but I didn't feel like reading the article, as I know it's not true!! I mean: just take a look at our gallery!! Smile

I still liked their pictures and felt inspired... Here's the magazine:

So the challenge is: Try to be inspired by the cover (or article)
It can be the layout, the colors, ...

My inspired layout:

At the end of the month, I'll pick a winner randomly to get a little RAK from myself... so please join us!! :)
