The Crafty Maven Getaway

Hello scrappy friends!! I am back with a few layouts that I have made over the past few months for the Crafty Maven Design Team. If you haven’t heard of The Crafty Maven Getaway go on over to the YouTube channel!! There are about 40 designers and we all take turns posting a new video each day. It’s really awesome and I have been loving being on the team!! I LOVE being able to go to one channel and get so much different inspiration.

Anyway, here are the layouts and process videos that I have posted on the channel so far:

This was my very first layout I made for the Design Team. I used a layout made by Adele, who is Inkie Quill on YouTube. You can find her video here.


I really love how this layout turned out!! I’m glad I chose Adele’s layout to scraplift! I used the June Clique Kits kit, which was the Crate Paper Journey collection. I absolutely adored that collection!! It was so much fun to play with!

This is the second layout I made for the design team. This one is also a scraplift. I found this image of a layout someone made on one of the scrapbooking facebook groups:


Isn’t it just gorgeous?!! I knew I wanted to scraplift it immediately so I ran it by my partner for that day, which was Danielle, who is Banning Lane on YouTube and she loved it too. This is what I came up with:


My 3rd layout was a very last minute one, so it wasn’t the best layout ever, but I was up for a Free Flow Wednesday video, which is basically do a layout that is you. So this is the layout I made:


I used the July Clique kit for this layout. The minute I saw this flamingo acetate sheet was in the kit I KNEW I was going to use it on this layout!! I had taken this photo of my husband and our youngest son at our most recent family trip to the zoo back in June of this year. I love the photo and LOVED using the acetate sheet as part of the background.


I made a little mini album for another project for the channel. It was also a very last minute video so I didn’t get to post the whole process of making the album. It took about 2 hours to make it and I really love how it turned out. You can see the beginning of the album before I start making it and then I will do a flip through at the end.



This is the cover of the album. I made it for my cousin for a Christmas present.


I used a glassine bag I’d gotten in a Studio Calico kit last year.


I kept most of the pages really simple. I didn’t want it to be too bulky or for anything to fall off.


This was on of my favorite pages. I LOVE the photo and the banners are my favorite embellishment.


And this one is another one of my favorite pages.


This is the very last page of the album. I wanted to keep it plain and simple, but also sum up the whole album. It was all about his family, so the title for the last page came easily.

Hannah, the founder of the Crafty Maven Getaway channel and a really good friend, asked me to do an art journal video so, I told her yes and I made my very first, big art journal page. I had dabbled a little bit in a small journal album, but nothing I would really call art journaling. It was more like playing with no direction. For this art journal page I had direction and it was so much fun!!!


I started out with a scripture and the idea to use spray mists and watercolors and this is what I came out with. I absolutely LOVE it!! I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the words that I wanted emphasized and I also printed out and cut the flowers with it as well. The girl is a gorgeous stamp that I bought from Sandra, who is ohsnapgonzo on YouTube. It’s made by Prima from the Bloom Collection by Jamie Dougherty. The name of the stamp is called instachick.


I think the flowers are my favorite part of the whole page!! Along with the background! I used my new Shinhan Touch markers that I bought from Close to my Heart. They were a lot of fun to play with and I can’t wait to keep using them!

That was the last project I made for the channel. I am up again next week on Wednesday and Thursday so come back then to see the layouts I make for those days!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’re having a great crafty week!
