Club La-La Land Crafts November 2019 Kit Reveal

Hi everyone! It’s kit reveal day for Club La-La Land Crafts and this month’s kit is full of SO much cuteness! Outside of crafting, reading is one of my favorite hobbies, so I absolutely love the theme this month. Bookworm Marci is sharing her love of reading with 3 little friends in the One More Chapter stamp set and of course, there’s a cute little bookworm stamp too! The full kit is packed with some awesome dies this month for creating bookmarks!

 

You can find the FULL KIT monthly subscription information HERE.

If you’re a stamps only person, there’s a monthly STAMPS ONLY KIT option available HERE and if you prefer dies only , there’s a monthly DIES ONLY KIT option for you too available HERE.

 

My projects using this kit are all wrapped up in one large project that I’m calling a reading journal. I had such a great time working this up! I created the journal using 8″ x 8″ chipboard covers and a 3/4″ x 8″ chipboard spine wrapped in cardstock. If you’d like more information on how to construct this, I have a “Desktop Planner” YouTube video tutorial series that you can check out HERE.

On the front cover, I created a reading nook in Marci’s bedroom and they look so happy! I’ve used the bookmark and bookshelf dies in this month’s kit to create the bookcase with the lamp die on top. The bookmark topper makes a cute little stool for Marci to sit on and the little “READ” die made a cute tag to hang on the spine of the journal.

Club La-La Land Crafts October 2019 Kit-Inspiration Projects

Hi everyone! I’m sharing a few more projects today using the Club La-La Land Crafts October 2019 kit and let me just say, this has been one of my favorite kits so far! The cutoff date to subscribe and receive this kit was October 20th, but one of the great perks of Club La-La Land Crafts is being able to purchase past kits after your first month of subscription, so you still have the opportunity to order this kit in the future if you missed out!

My first card today features the adorable Warm Hugs Marci and she’s been having fun skiing! I love to find ways to stretch the use of the dies in the kit and the small lake die looked like it would make a nice pair of skis. I used the snow caps die as bindings and added a few line details with multi-liner pens to finish the look. Too fun!

I’ve also cut just a small portion of the mountains die and heat embossed it with white puff embossing powder to create a little snow drift to stick the skis in.

 

Coloring Details: (Copic Markers)

Marci:
skin–E000,E00,E11,E13, R20
hair–E50,E51,E53,E55

For my second card, I’ve featured the little ice skating piggie having fun on a winter day. I love the different look you can get for your scenes using these dies just by coloring them differently or using a different medium. For my mountains on this card I used watercolor paints on watercolor cardstock and I love the texture they have!

Pig body–E41,E42,E50
ears/snout–E000 R01,R20
sweater–R24,R27,R29

Club La-La Land Crafts

Club La-La Land Crafts June 2019 Kit-Inspiration

 

 

Hi there! I’m back today sharing a few more cards using the June kit from Club La-La Land Crafts.

This kit has been amazing to work with and I’m so excited to share my little hacienda scene I’ve created on my first card! First off, let’s taco ’bout the cobblestone at the bottom of the card. I’ve die-cut the tortilla chip dies from the kit multiple times on a piece of cardstock inked with Walnut Stain distress ink. I then die-cut the chips again from white cardstock and inked them using Pumice Stone and Hickory Smoke distress inks before gluing them into place on the Walnut Stain cardstock piece. I just love how it turned out!

I’ve inked 2 pieces of white cardstock for the buildings with Tea Dye and Old Paper distress inks and used the La-La Land Crafts Scalloped Rectangles Die for the tile rooftops inked with Rusty Hinge distress ink.

The Large Stitched Tags Die made for a great door and I’ve inked it with the Wood Planks Background Stamp and added the black accents using the Long Flags Die. I’ve repeated this idea for that little hint of a window on the left side. I’ve strung some peppers from the Fiesta die in the kit and the taco dies to finish it off. How fun!!

Coloring Details:
Marci:
Skin–E11, E21, E23
Hair–E09, E15, E97
Top–No, N1, YG01, YG23
Skirt–N5, N6, N7, N9, 100,YG01, YG23,YR04, YR07, YR16
Flowers–R24, R27, R29
Leaves–YG03, YG17

Chihuahua:
Snout/Light Patches–E40, E41, E42, E43
Face/Body–E53, E55, E99

 

For my second card, I’ve used a clean and simple design to really let those adorable chihuahuas take the show!
I started by inking the white cardstock with Twisted Citron distress ink. I then used both Pretty Diamonds Layering Stencils, one with Evergreen Bough and one with Peacock Feathers distress ink.

I’ve inked the guacamole and tortilla chips first with Rusty Hinge, Crushed Olive and Fossilized Amber distress inks and added some Copic accents to them. I Copic colored the lime die-cut and the chihuahuas and finished it off with a couple of the sentiments from the kit. Just love the punny sentiments!

Coloring Details:
Chihuahuas:
Snout/Ears/Light Patches–E40, E41, YR0000
Face/Body–W2, W3, W4, W6, W7

 

Hope you enjoyed my cards today and if you’re not already a Club kit subscriber, you have one more day to get in on this month’s amazing kit!!

Club La-La Land Crafts May 2019 Kit Inspiration

 

 

 

Hi there! I’m back today sharing a few more cards that I’ve made using the May kit from Club La-La Land Crafts. Have I mentioned how much I love these adorable pigs?!

When I saw the dies in this kit, I envisioned many different ways to use the various parts, so I’ve featured a few ideas here on these two cards.

For my first card, I’ve used the label portion of the pill bottle to create a banner accent and I really love what that added. I also thought I’d color the little pigs as pied pigs to share a bit of a different look to them.

 

 

 

I’ve used a Stitched Nested Circle die in the center with some patterned paper from my stash that I thought looked a little like a hospital gown print. The sentiment is stamped on a Double Stitched Ovals die-cut and matted on a Pierced Scalloped Ovals die-cut.

For the background I Copic airbrushed a gradient of R81,R83 and R85. I then used a Pretty Diamonds Layering Stencil and inked starting from the top with Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet and Aged Mahogany Distress Inks.

I’ve added just a portion of the heartbeat die in the top left and a heart die-cut from the center of the heartbeat die placed between the pigs.

Coloring Details: Copic Markers
Pigs–E51, E53, E55, R20, R21,R30
Spots–W4, W5, W6, W7
Gown–BG11, G000, G00
IV/stand–W0,W1,C1,C2,C3,N5,N7
Sling–BG72,BG75
Crutch–N1,N2,N3
Bandaid–YR12,YR14,E95
white fine tip paint pen(stripe on gown)

 

For my second card, look closely….

I’ve used the pill bottle cap and die-cut it multiple times from velvet paper on top of a Double Stitched Ovals die-cut to create a little textured rug.

I can see a lot of uses for this die. I’m thinking borders, maybe even a brick wall… Lots of possibilities there!

I’m a huge fan of big bold die-cut sentiments, so I really loved the “Get Well Soon” die in this kit. I’ve inked it with Tattered Rose and Dried Marigold Distress inks and then heat embossed it with UTEE.

I’ve inked the cardstock strip with Iced Spruce Distress Ink and then used the So Many Dots layering stencil with Broken China Distress Ink and Tim Holtz texture paste over the top for a little shine.

Coloring Details: Copic Markers
Pig–E51,E53,E55,W4,W5,W6,W7
Snout–R20,R21,R30,W4,W5
Bed–E41,E42,E43,E44
Blanket–R81,R83,R85,R59
