Good Morning! I hope your Saturday is going well.
I just recently received my February card kit and I got busy right away and made this card.
The Webster’s paper pad is just so fresh and spring like. I used 2 different papers from the pad and also one of the label stickers from Basic grey that looks like chalkboard which is so hot right now.
I added some washi tape to the left side and of course a fabulous Paper Bakery Flair, some sequins and my card was pretty much done.
Here is a close-up for you.
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
Hello paper bakery fans… Today I wanted to share the rest of my projects I created using the January Lovepotion#9 kit.
So lets take a look and learn a few quick tips!
Now we all know that script writing is trending right now! I know … I’m loving it.
So lets take a look at the products that we already have in our creative spaces.
I’m using the black gesso from the lovepotion#9 mixed media kit.
Have a vinyl or plastic matt to work on. It just helps to dilute the gesso.
Simply add water to a small blob of gesso… keep adding water – you want a small pool so that you can dip your brush in.
Then just start writing as you do.
Add extra detail to your script writing by flicking the brush for little ink splats, just use your imagination!
Here’s my page where I used my script writing for the title. Simply cut it out once dry and machine stitching for extra detail.
and here’s another one of my off the page projects made using all the mediums in the love potion#9 mixed media kit. I truly adore all the glimmer mists in this kit. I love to paint with them rather than spray. It allows me to have more control of where it lands!
I hope I have inspired you and hope you picked up a small tip or 2.
Hi everyone! This is Shelly. I have been playing with my February Mixed Media kit, and it is so fun! I love the mini canvas and the rub-ons! I wish I could have sheets and sheets of the rub-ons! For this project I used a lot of misting sprays and the stencil. I kept spraying and then dabbing it off with a papertowel. It is a favorite technique. You can get different effects by wiping it off when it pools. I also like sewing on my canvas. I put the pom poms through a string and sewed them on to the canvas. Enjoy your mixed media kit this month.
Hi, Molly here! The February Scrapbook Kit, Umbrella Rain, is full of fun colors! I love, love, love the mix of turquoise and red. It’s the perfect transition kit from winter to spring.
I have two projects to share today. The first is this 8.5×11″ layout. I am probably one of those rare people who actually gets excited for rain. I have collected some pretty cute rain gear over the years and love when I have a chance to wear it. Especially my red, rubber boots!
To keep things a little more interesting on my page, I layered my paper at an angle. The polka dots reminded me of rain drops and I liked the tone on tone with the turquoise. Since there was a pop of red in my photo, I decided to add that Elle’s Studio snippet from the scrapbook kit. It was a good way to balance my colors and bring it all together.
Next up, is an entry into my Austin Bucket List Minibook. My husband and I made a list of 25 things we’d like to do while living here in Austin, TX. The first thing we accomplished was to eat a food truck feast.
Typically when I’m working with my kits, I push all my larger paper scraps to the side. I was happy to have enough left over to create this spread.
Be sure to check out the new Umbrella Rain kits! They really are special!

Happy Saturday, everyone! Lea here with a new card to share using the February Umbrella Rain card kit from Paper Bakery. I was so excited to get my kit in the mail because it included a Paper Bakery exclusive stencil in a houndstooth design…which is one of my faves!! I used white gesso for my card, but you could also use embossing paste.
At first I tried the gesso & stencil out on some patterned paper, but it didn’t give me the look I was going for. I think the design was just a little too big. So, I then tried it out on a block of heavy white cardstock…and it worked exactly how I wanted it!! Here is my card!
1. Make A2 card from cashmere cardstock.
2. Cut white cardstock slightly smaller, then round the corners.
3. Tape the stencil to the cardstock, then apply a thin layer of embossing paste to it.
4. Remove the stencil carefully, then let the embossing paste dry.
5. Once dry, add a couple sprays of gold mist to it & let that dry.
6. Diecut a doily from floral paper, cut in half & layer to the left side of the white block.
7. Cut a banner edge to paper & vellum blocks, then layer together to the doily.
8. Zig-zag stitch along the left side of the doily & sentiment banner.
9. Adhere the entire block to the card front.
10. Cut the smaller banner from paper, and adhere to the upper right corner of the card.
11. Add the arrow flair to the top of the large banner.
12. Spray the hexagon wood veneer with gold mist, then add to the card front to finish.
I love that the patterned papers in the card kit can be cut up & used as your card sentiment!! There are so many possibilities!! And don’t be afraid to use the stencils that come in your kits with different mediums…they work great for distress inks & mists, but they also are really amazing with gesso & embossing paste. (I can’t wait to get my hands on the gold shimmer embossing paste that I have seen popping up in online stores…I think that will look AMAZING!!)
I hope that you have a wonderful rest of your weekend, and hope that you can get some creative crafty time in!!

Good day everyone! Tegan here and I am showing off my new layout using the just revealed (and fabulous!) Umbrella Rain Scrapbook Kit! If you are ready for spring after this long winter we have had, this kit is for you! I love all of the spring elements in this kit- they just make me happy! This super cool blue paper included in the kit reminded me of a water stain, so I thought it would be perfect for my rainy day layout!
Look at these chipboard clouds! Could they BE any cuter!?
And just look at the Rain, Rain flair included in the kit! Love it! I also used a sprinkling of small white sequins from the shop on my clouds! And these gray Elle’s Studio alphas are perfect- my new favorite alpha!
And I love all of the Elle’s Studio tags that are included- perfect for adding a little phrase! On this layout, I only added from my stash the green alphas and a few buttons.
Thanks for joining us today! You will definitely want to check out the Umbrella Rain scrapbook kit! And join us all week for more inspiration!
Hello, PB friends, It’s Valerie here today to share a tutorial with you on how to dress up your journaling cards or make the kit stash more personalized for your album.
I have to say both of the February Umbrella Rain Project kit and Umbrella Rain Capture 365 kit are AMAZING. I love the colors, those cute umbrellas and rain drops. They just make me super happy.
And if you get to know me a little better, you will know I am big on embellishments and dimensional. I love to hoard different embellishments and I also love to make my cards more 3D. So I usually mix and match my kits and play with them. And this is what I come up for you today.
When I saw these exclusive stencils in both project kit and scrapbook kit, I know this is what I want to do. I take my mist sprays and stencils and start to mix and match colors as I go.
Before you start to apply the mist onto your page, always make sure, both of your paper and stencil they are flat. No gap in between. Then always shake the bottle as their head might be stuffed over time. Then start to spray on a piece of blank paper before you start on your project.
After the mist is dry, I start to use the bits and pieces, flair buttons, and stamps to create these filler cards.
Then I take those beautiful journaling cards from the February Umbrella Rain Capture 365 kit. And added different elements to them. this way even they are from a kit but still more unique to my projects.
Hello! I thought I would share another way to use your rub-ons with watercolor paints today. Watercolors are all the rage right now. For me, it was a matter of finding a way to fit it into my creations while keep to my more clean and linear style.
I started with a piece of watercolor paper, the rub-ons from the card kit Love Potion #9 and a set of watercolor paints.
You’ll notice that the white rub-on doesn’t really show up on the white watercolor paper. It shows up really nicely when you add a little paint!
I created a couple of different word and paint combinations. The pink one worked out the best in terms of matching the kit paper.
The key for this to work really well, is to let the paint dry. It needs to be really dry because you will use an eraser to remove the rub-on. Removing the rub-on will leave a clear and crisp image. I then die cut the sentiment to add to my card. Here’s the result:
I added a little more detail with black accents around the letters. I cut one of the labels from the sticker sheet in half and them in either side of the sentiment die cut. The ribbon was a final add on, using a glue dot to adhere it to the die cut.
I hope that I have inspired you to create using watercolors and rub-ons together.
Thanks for visiting! -Sarah
