Off the Page Project with the Willow Kits featuring the Color Kit


Hello again my crafty friends! Cathi back again with an Off the Page project featuring the Color Kit (TCK) and all the other gorgeous Willow kits!  I haven't played with my mixed media goodies in a while and it felt great to work on a project featuring layers and layers of goodies from the Willow Kits and their gorgeous TCK.   Wondering what the final project is?  It is a gorgeous key organizer that I have had laying around for a while to upcycle!


The paint color on the frame ties in perfectly with the Willow Kit colors and I can't wait to have my husband help me get it up on the wall this week!!


In my first closeup you can see all the layers of paper and media I used on this project! I used the dot stamp from the TCK here with my Shabby Shutters Distress Ink. I also layered the Kaisercraft Abstract Triangles stencil that was in the TCK using the Worn Lipstick Distress Ink in my collection. On top of the background paper I layered many of the ephemera from the TSK as well as the cardstock stickers from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK).  


I have used the Moroccan Tile stencil included with the birthday gifts we received with the Willow kits and used the Faber Castell gold Texture Luxe from the TCK. The gold doily is from the Pretty Little Pieces bag in the TSK.



The pompom frame can be found in the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK) and that gorgeous Yay charm in the the TSK along with the pink rhinestones.

I love how my Key Organizer project turned out, it has been too long since I played with my mixed media goodies!. I hope you like the project I have made for this week! These kits are so full of goodness and can work with so many different types of projects! I hope that you will come and have a look at the kits and consider subscribing!!  You can find the subscriptions HERE.  I'll be back next week with another project!

This one is bright, playful and fun and uses lots of goodies from the Willow kits, starting with the base "Life Goals" paper from the Crate Paper Good Vibes collection that is the focus of the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK). I love the bright yellow and fern patterns.

I've used loads of goodies from the different kits.  I used the polka dotted "All Good" paper from the TSK which I layered under my photo. The fun times die cuts were also from the TSK.  I used the stamps from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) to stamp "awesome" and "my people" on a piece of ephemera from the TSK.  I added a cactus puffy sticker from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK) for a bit of fun.and then some cardstock sticker (star, words and starburst) from the PLK.

Planner Goodies with the gorgeous Willow Kits!



Hello again my crafty friends! Cathi back again with some planner goodies using the gorgeous Willow Kits. I have a B6 Traveller's Notebook so made some notebook covers and a folder to go into my gorgeous planner. I also added some clips from the kit as bookmarks and a charm from the kit as a charm on my planner (scroll down to see those!) this kit is great for planners as well as all the cards and layouts I've been making too!  These kits are chock full of the gorgeous Crate Paper Good Vibes collection.


I'm still loving these fun pompom frames that came in the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK) I added a cardstock sticker from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) "You Do You" and added the puffy cacti sticker from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK) on top of the frame.  The paper I used for the notebook cover is the Fresh paper from the Crate Paper Good Vibes collection.


This is the folder that I made with the collection using the Passion paper from the Good Vibes collection.  The stamp and bird stickers are all cardstock stickers from the PLK.  The dream big ephemera and the Kaisercraft pink rhinestones are from the TSK.


My final notebook cover for the B6 is using the yummy All Good paper in the collection.  I used the "it's all good" and "inspired daily" ephemera are from the TSK and the cardstock circle and February stickers are from the PLK.


Here you can see the charm that I made to hang on the traveller's notebook from the TSK!


Here are the two clips I took from the BPK. They are perfect to use as planner bookmarks!


I also did several dashboards for my micro wallet using the Willow kits!! I used a combination of puffy stickers from the BPK and cardstock stickers from the PLK.  The papers were all from the PLK 3x4 card collection from Crate Paper Good Vibes.


My final photo shows a DIY I did for this Traveler's Notebook. Like the one I did for the B6 I took the charm from the kit and made it as a charm clip to hang on the TN. I just love how it turned out.

For my first card I used the soft and pretty polka dot All Good paper from the Good Vibes collection from Crate Paper, found in the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK). The gorgeous pompom frame and the ephemera are also from the TSK.


For my next card I used the Life Goals soft pink paper for the base. The gold doily comes from the Pretty Little Pieces pack in the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK), the rhinestones, Be Happy Be Bright Be You and tag come from the ephemera pack in the TSK. The gold foil stars come from the cardstock stickers in the Pretty Little Kit (PLK).


For my final card I kept it simple, a gorgeous pompom frame and cactus and word ephemera from the TSK, set on a base of the gorgeous fern paper from the other side of the Life Goals sheet. Simple but effective and one of my favorite cards!

50 Years Layout! A Willow Kit Project



My parents are celebrating 50 years together at the end of this week!!  I decided I needed to make them a layout and frame it to send to them for the day.  I have used the gorgeous Crate Paper Good Vibes collection to make a bright and cheerful layout.  I love all the gold included in the kit as well, perfect for their golden wedding anniversary! For the base of my layout I chose the gorgeous Flourish paper from the Good Vibes collection.


In this first closeup you can see one of the gorgeous golden frames with pompoms that are included in the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK). This is the recent photo of my parents I wanted to include. I also used the tag, bird, and stars from the gorgeous Cork and Cardstock Die Cuts also from the TSK!


Here you can see some gorgeous cork die cuts from the TSK, along with the sparkly Together Champagne Glitter Thickers for the Good Vibes collection, you can find these in the TSK as well!


To finish off the layout I added my own text with my parent's wedding date and anniversary date as well as 50 Years using the thickers and another gorgeous frame from the TSK.  This entire layout could be accomplished just using the main kit!!

More Cards and Planner Goodies with my Violet Kits!


Hello scrappy friends!! Cathi back again! I am back again this week with some more cards and planner projects to finish off my Violet kits while I wait for the Willow kits to land here in Ireland!  I really love how everything turned out and can't believe how many projects I was able to do with this kit. I am really looking forward to the next kit and what I can make with it!


For my first card in the set, I used the Beautiful Mess paper from the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK).  The Violet kits are chock full of the Cocoa Vanilla Bohemian Dream collection. I layered a scrap of paper from the collection and then added the tag and flower ephemera from the TSK.  I added the gorgeous chipboard butterfly sticker from the Bits & Pieces Kit (BPK) and finished the card off with the beautiful heart stickers from the TSK


For my second card I used a piece of the gorgeous cardstock from the kit and layered it with the Beautiful Mess paper and another layer of the cardstock.  I used the ephemera from the TSK and the chipboard sticker flower from the BPK. I finished the card off again with the heart stickers from the TSK.


For my final card with the kit I have used the Beautiful Mess paper again for the base and another scrap of paper to layer on it. I used some ephemera form the TSK and the diamantes from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK) and chipboard word stickers from the BPK.


This year I am using a B6 traveler's notebook for my journaling and planning and I decided I needed some notebook covers and folders for it and made some gorgeous projects using the Bohemian Dreams papers!


For this notebook I used the gorgeous Abstract paper from the TSK, the moments cutout from the PLK and the chipboard sticker from the BPK.  The ephemera frame and butterfly and tab as well as the heart stickers are from the TSK.

This is the folder I made for my notebook, I love having pockets in the traveler's notebook for stickers and other loose bits, and a pretty folder is even better!  I used the Kaleidoscope paper from the TSK. I love the weathered wood on the outside of the folder but the inside has the gorgeous kaleidoscope of colors!  I used the vellum ephemera and heart stickers from the TSK, the cardstock sticker from the PLK and the chipboard butterfly from the BPK.


For this notebook cover, I used the Flower Child paper from the TSK. The chipboard stickers come from the BPK, the ephemera and hear stickers from the TSK and the cardstock stickers from the PLK.


I also have a micro sized traveller's notebook that I use for a wallet and I had great fun doing dashboards and a folder

For this tiny little dashboard I used the Beautiful Mess paper again as the backdrop, along with a piece of ephemera nd heart stickers, all from the TSK.


This tiny little folder can hold some credit cards, bank cards or even some cash. I made it from the Gypsy Heart paper from the TSK and added a chipboard sticker from the BPK and ephemera and puffy stickers from the TSK.

For my final dashboard I used the x paper, along with some ephemera and stickers from the TSK.

I hope you like the projects I have made for this week! These kits are so full of goodness and can work with so many different types of projects! I hope that you will come and have a look at the kits and consider subscribing!!  You can find the subscriptions HERE.  My new Willow kit is on the way and I am hoping to have projects to show by next week!

In the Wild Layout with the Scrappery Violet Kits!



Hello scrappy friends!! Cathi back again! I am back again this week with another layout. My daughter looks a little different in this one than the last layout! She performed in a Halloween parade here in Ireland and they had amazing bird costumes! I used the watercolor, soft blue Wild and Free paper found in the main Scrapbooking Kit (TSK) for the base of this layout.


The "wild" die cut is included in the TSK. I used the Dina Wakely Blushing Acrylic Paint included in the Color Kit (TCK) to color in the die cut.  The "in the" came from the cardstock stickers found in the TSK, along with the Wild Child flair and the feather ephemera.  The arrow and beautiful chipboard stickers are from the Bits and Pieces Kit (BPK).


In this photo you can see more of the ephemera: flowers, leaves and feathers from the TSK. The cardstock sticker tab "brilliant is from the Pretty Little Kit (PLK). The chipboard heart is from the BPK.


I tucked in some of the "Abundant" polk dot paper under the photo here in this photo and added some vellum ephemera from the BPK, along with lots of ephemera pieces from the TSK.

Lots of layering and a clean and simple layout this week! I hope you like it!  I hope that you will come and have a look at the kits and consider subscribing!!  You can find the subscriptions HERE.
