Tidy Twine | Tutorial

Hi there!

Laura here, sharing a little tip for card makers today, but in all honesty scrapbookers can utilize this tip as well.


Have you ever had trouble getting your twine to stay in place on your project?  Wll grab a small hole punch and follow along.



Mark off either side of your project, where you would like your twine to sit.


Punch a half circle, or notch,  on one side of your project and repeat on the other side.


Now when you wrap your twine, it will sit exactly where you want i!


Thanks for joining me today!

Dream with Aurelie

Hello, again! Aurelie here today to reveal one last design using Boys Rule Scrapbook Kits' July/August 2015 kit.


Oh! Yes! Using the current kit's Kaisercraft's Shine Bright patterned papers, Simple Stories' Summer Vibes stickers and Fancy Pants' Making Waves die-cuts, I then opted to shop in my previous kit leftovers and found the perfect Bo Bunny, Carta Bella and Echo Park patterned papers and stickers (from two different kits!) to highlight this precious photo of one of our nephews, Benoît, way back in 2004. I also added some Making Memories staples, an American Crafts title sticker, some October Afternoon alphas (well, numbers actually!) and hand-stitching, using an old stitching template I've had in my stash for ages along with some DMC floss.

And there you have it! Can't get over how all the BR kits go hand in hand! Huge shout out to Laura-Lee for choosing such awesome product that can be used over and over and over again! Stay tuned as Laura will be back later on this week with some awesome last designs using the July/August 2015 kit.

Happy scrapping!

It's a wonderful life with Aurelie

Hello, hello! Aurelie here today to show you my latest creation using the Boys Rule July/August 2015 Scrapbook Kit. I saw one of Aga Malyszek's wonderful designs via the Studio Calico blog (see here for more information) and instantly thought that I would try it out using the current BR kit. And here is my creation:


Those squares on a slant were just calling my name! ;) Used the Kaisercraft Shine Bright patterned papers included with the kit along with one of the stickers from the coordinating sticker sheet. Also added a few confetti stickers from the Simple Stories Summer Vibes sticker sheet and Crate Paper cork arrow stickers, all included in the kit. Couldn't leave it there, though, without some good ol' hand-stitching so I found a small Stampin' Up stitching template and some DMC floss and away I went. Finally, had to add some metal on there so grabbed some of my Stampin' Up tiny metal brads and away I went to add that extra oomph the card needed.

And there you have it! As Nicole Harper once said, "Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!" Tune in until the end of August as the other BR designers and I reveal more and more designs using the July/August 2015 kit. WOO!HOO!

Happy scrapping!

For the Love of Chess with Laura

Hi there!

Laura here today sharing a layout created back in late July just before I packed up the last of my scrapbook room before my move I was trying to get a head start on a few August projects.  I just knew that my scrap room would not be set up yet!

Anyway today's page is a layout created with the July/August kit contents.


The summer  Boys Rule Scrapbook Kits contents were just so perfect for creating this page for my Cuba trip album - even though it was technically winter time! The papers are so vibrant and work for this tropical setting and I have fun with many of the alphas in the kit creating a multi font title!

Supply List:  Kit contents - Simple Stories and Bo Bunny patterned papers; Crate Paper cork elements; Simple Stories, Echo Park and Kaisercraft stickers; Studio Calico Washi stickers;  misc. star clip. Other supplies  Mr. Huey's mist; Staedtler pen; Tim Holtz Distress Ink; We R Memory Keepers floss; Doodlebug enamel dots.

Thank you for visiting today!

Good Times wtih Laura

Hello!

Laura here today sharing a page created using the July /  August kit contents, I am loving all of the summery goodies.  I decided to scrap a couple of more photos from the big Sandcastle building competition that is hosted annually and our trailer park.  My son, Timmy, teamed up with his friends Rachel and Aaron for this event and they created a masterpiece!

 

I began this page by adding distress ink through a mask with a variety of sized circles on it. To that I added in some sprinkled mist, and then began layering up my papers.  Once I decided where to place my photos, I stopped ad hand stitched a large circle.


Of course, after that it is all fun and games placing cute embellishments here and there around my page!

Here are a few close ups....




Supply List:  Kit contents - Simple Stories and Pink Paislee patterned papers;  Fancy Pants wood veneer and ephemera; Simple Stories, Echo Park stickers. Other supplies  Mr. Huey's mist; Staedtler pen; Tim Holtz Distress Ink; We R Memory Keepers floss.

 I can't wait to share my next Boys Rule project with you!

So glad you stopped by today!
