Scraps + Sprinkles = Cards

Huge Hello Everyone!!

I'm Back with another share, yet again I'm left the the lovely scraps of my kit...

What can you do with a few scraps and a dash of sprinkles??

I have to say lets whip up some cards!!

I'm not much of a cardie, but I sure do love using up my kits and I find it a bit of a creative challenge
to do a few cards each month.

With the June kit, I really can enjoy using these scraps and make a card for a certain Mum's Birthday...

and a little "Thinking of you" Card for a special someone ; )

I honestly can't wait to see what July kit brings...the count down is on and the first sneak peeks are already emerging on Facebook!

The Sale Date for July Kit is Set!

Hope you all have a super scrappy weekend!

Maybe it's a cardie weekend to use up some of your scraps :}

I was lucky to find sometime this week to play with the delicious June kit

I really Love the citrus colour combo in this kit and could not help but create some yummy layers
with this layout....

"Cheeky Carefree"

I fell in love with the Kraft pattern card stock and really wanted to used my sewing machine to do some zig zags as well :}

Also LOVE the Chelly Bean Hand dyed Ribbon for ruffles and flowers... so so YUMMY!
A few  of my handmade sprinkles of clay creations and a shabby pinwheel.

More inspiration

I promised more pages and here they are...

I'm into masking atm, with texture paste and paint...and when coupled with the Chelley Bean Designs ribbon and tape and twine I;m just loving the dimension it gives to my pages.

My big girl's FIRST READER, such a big moment for her...and us!

Just loved the border stickers in the JUNE kit...and who says they have to be used in a strip. With the brads I used them to frame the photo in a different sort of way. And doodling of course.

the number 58 doesn't have any significance LOL I love random things on my pages lol!!!

So who's creating with the JUNE APOCD kit this weekend??? I am!!!
Dont forget to load some pages to the APOCD FB page....I feel a lucky door prize for someone...

SO much to share

I did 4 pages with the JUNE APOCD kit as soon as I got it!

I loved the colours and all the embies...I really didn't have to raid my stash at all, just for things like paint or dymo or pens or a bit of different washi tape.

Here are two of the pages....

Loving the Chelley Bean designs ribbon. And how well does the tape go with the kit...I love adding tape and ribbon in a messy kind of way.

Have always loved brads, and love to doodle around them too.

The star stickers in the kit were just perfect for my boy layout here of my CRY BABY. I love grey, yellow and blue together...and the APOCD button with the twine were gorgeous together.
I'm into strips atm. Great way to use lots of bits of PP and scrunching and layering them with tape adds dimension.

I'll be back tomorrow with more...2 more pages...and perhaps more next week if I can get scrapping this afternoon.

Who's done some pages with the gorgeous JUNE kit? Upload them to our FB page...would love to see them.

June Recipe with Samantha

Huge hello Everyone!!

Ready to work with this scrumptious June kit?!

I know I sure am!

Just LOVE these colours and the sweet embellishments!!

Now I'm lucky enough to bring you the Recipe for this Months Kit....

I want to share with you the joys of  creative washi tape banners!
They are super easy to make and I promise you'll have fun! :) 

Gather all your supplies...

  • Glue/double sided tape
  • Scissors
  • June's Kit

And away we go :}


Open up your June Kit, pick and print out your photos and eat your complementary lollies.....

Step 2.
Distress background paper and trim photos.
Cut out some tags from Crate paper - story teller and cut the top border of Al aboard studio.

Step 3.
Cut around the red tag and freehand scallop your green tag.
Lightly ink around edges of tags with grey ink or other co ordinating ink.

Step 4.
Glue Down your tags, cutting a quarter of the green tag to place on the opposite side of your tag cluster.

Step 5.

One of the most important steps....Make a cup of coffee :}

Step 6.
Now for the fun part! the sprinkles!!!
Lets make this washi tape banner i have raved about!!

OK I am lucky enough to have my red washi tape left from March kit and a black and white washi tape from else where, but if you just have your kit, you can use the reverse side of All aboard, red and white spot paper and a grey tag from the Crate Paper - Story Teller.

Now with your scissors and glue cut strips of the paper or tape,
Sticking the paper or tape over and around the twinge from your kit.

After you have created a length of to be banner that you are happy with,
It's time to style your flags,

I went with the normal pointed flags but if you have creative edge scrissors you could scollop them or just round your edges, it's really up to you how you style your banners :)

Step 7.

It's time to attach your banners!! get for those brads!!

And an extra sprinkle of cute APOCD buttons and bingo chip!
If you have a few sewing pins you may like to create a couple of star pins like i have,
Just pop together two star stickers and a pin...and hey presto! Star pin! :)

Last but not the least a title!

Then outline with felt tip pen and  your finito!

Thank you all for joining me this month's Recipe :)
I can't wait to see what you are creating with your June Kit!!
There are still some available at www.apieceofcakedesigns.com.au 

Come pop over to A Piece of Cake Designs Face book Page and Share your creations!!

Have a fantastic weekend!
