My Creative Scrapbook January 2023




Thanks for stopping by! I hope you're having a great day! If you're looking for a great way to treat yourself I hope you consider trying a subscription to one of the My Creative Scrapbook monthly kits. They select the pattern paper and lots of coordinating supplies and deliver it straight to your front door so all you have to focus on is MAKING! Every month they have several kits to choose from.. their Main Kit, LE - Limited Edition, Creative Kit and Album Kit - so you can choose what's right for you!



This time I'm working with the January Main Creative Kit. This kit includes die cuts, stickers, stencil and premium 12" papers from Vicki Boutin's Print Shop Collection. I love that every month there are collections from my favorite brands and that the papers are original weight designer papers - no thin flimsy paper here!
I love Vicki Boutin's eclectic style. She has a great way of mixing and matching images that are unrelated that you might not think would work together but ultimately do. Like the office themed paper clips, ledger print, file tabs and pockets mixed together with elements from nature like the butterflies and florals.

I love Vicki Boutin's taste for color too - it's right in line with my favorites.. bright colors that almost always include the entire rainbow! Of course there are dramatic pops of black and gold to add some striking contrast.

What you'll love about the kit, no matter what collection is selected for you, is the premium papers, and the quantity of images that make creating easy. You'll have lots of embellishments to choose from for lots of possibilities for your designs.

The kits always include lots of sentiments too so you'll be able to make lots of cards or pages for documenting your favorite memories. The papers in the kits are 12" so you're not limited to any particular papercraft.

As a card maker I like to break down the 12" sheets. I cut apart the tags and journaling cards (depending on the kit) and the 12" papers into 6" squares. The smaller sheets make it easier for me to see all the prints when I lay out the papers on my desk.

The only things I added to this kit are the adhesives, card bases, envelopes and the solid cardstock matts that frame the layouts. Everything else you see on my designs is included in the kit this month. I didn't even need to add any bling this time because there are lots of little circle chipboard pieces that remind me of sequins.

I invite you to join one of their monthly scrapbook kit clubs and experience the possibilities our coordinated kits offer. With plenty of innovative materials and ideas to jump start your imagination, preserving your memories and making cards will be effortless and enjoyable.
