One layout two ways - Imagine the possibilities


Imagine the possibilities that you could do with this layout. I've created 2 layouts, one with the imagine collection, and one with Archiver's™ digital collection. Supplies for both layouts are available to buy thru Creative Memories 


First up, the traditional method, with the imagine collection.



Love all the colours.  They are so vibrant. Great for any occasion, theme park trip, birthday or celebration. 


For this layout I used 
  • 4 - patterned papers ( 2 for cutting and 2 for the background.. but can do the layout without the background papers and create directly on Creative Memories refill pages if you like.)
  • 1 -  12x12 cranberry cardstock
  • 2 - mat pack cards.
  • imagine stickers to embellish
  • black sticker letters


Some tools I used 
  • straight trimmer
  • border maker system, with the new arrow border cartridge 
  •  CCS with 4" and 4.25 " circle template, using red and green cutters
  • scissors for cutting the flags.
  • foam squares 
  • tape runner and repositional tape runner ( not shown.)
  • black pen ( not shown)
  • multi-purpose tool to help put on sticker lettering

  You will also need 2 - 5x7 photos and  1 - 4x4 photo.. but can adjust layout to suit your needs.

Cutting instructions for patterned paper 


Cutting instructions for solid cardstock




after cutting cardstock use the border maker with arrow punch and punch 2 rows of arrows 
after use your straight trimmer and cut at the 1.25 mark and it would give equal paper on both sides


use the CCS to cut a  4x4 circle for photo ( red cutter) and 
4.25 x 4.25 circle for patterned paper (green cutter)



assemble all papers as shown


add sticker title, mats, and journaling



add other stickers and embellishments as desired.
Foam squares can also be put behind items to add dimension. 


TIP : the repositional tape runner is great for those small bits and  borders with intricate designs.
Doesn't show white tape. No mess. Just wipes of your table or paper.
also can take off and on your page, to move to desired location on your layout.


Next UP! The Digital version using Archiver's ™ Kit



you can order this digital kit thru Creative Memories

you can have fun playing with this digital layout 


You can use your favourite program or software that can except JPG and PNG files.
The nice thing about digital is that you can resize, rotate, and make shadows. You will never run out your favourite paper or that letter "E" that always seems to be needed, as you can paste it on your layout as many times as you like.

1 Sketch 2 different ways

I love scrapbooking, but I love card making too.
I wanted to show you how easy it is, to use a sketch for a scrapbook page, and simply also apply it to a card. 




To make the shadow effect with party hats, I punched one border using black cardstock and one using a colored cardstock. Using the CM repositional tape runner, so the tape is clear, I placed them offsetted to complete the look. I also used foam squares to add depth to the stickers.



For this project I used the Party Hat and Scallop Dot CM border maker cartridges, Cake my day paper pack and stickers, Peacock, Black and Raspberry cardstock, foam squares, Repositional tape and regular tape runner, and a Creative Memories white refill page.
This sketch can be used for any occasion or event. Also would look great using any paper pack or border maker cartridge. Would love to see what layouts you create with this sketch. Please head over to my Facebook page "Creative Memories with Krista" and  post in the comments of the Sketch Post. Or to get your supplies to make these projects, visit My Creative Memories website 

Thanks for stopping by.
