Unboxing Laurie's June Design Team Kit

Hey It's Laurie Again!

 

Have you been wishing for more scrapbook embellishments that give you space for journaling? How about embellishments that frame your photos or are super cute cut-aparts? Are you wishing for a manufacturer to release a cohesive scrapbook embellishment collection that is very versatile, meaning it can be used in a variety of ways and will go with so many scrapbook elements you already own?

 

Your wishes are coming true, cheeky people! Cheeky Studio is heading in a new direction, releasing a more cohesive overall collection each month. And this month, I get to unbox the brand new WISHES collection in my June design team kit!

 

 
I'm excited for this collection for a number of reasons. Those cut-aparts (which are digital downloads) are going to be SO great for adding easy journaling spots to scrapbook layouts, creating birthday or other cards, and even making cute gift tags. I also REALLY like the font in this collection.
 
 
Then there are the awesome 2x2 squares that would be cool for creating a grid background on a scrapbook layout or, again, using to make a card. The collection also includes flair, a sequins mix, purple gingham bows, and two different ephemera packs.
 
One ephemera pack is what you have come to know and expect from Cheeky Studio. It's filled with wonderful pieces of cute little animals, balloons, florals, and more! But the other one has frames for your pictures, more journaling spots, and other more basic pieces. 
 
 
Even though this seems like it is birthday themed, this is a pretty versatile collection, and I think it has applications to a lot of other themes. That's definitely one of the great things about all Cheeky Studio products.
 
Of course, you can purchase the Wishes collection as a whole, but you can also purchase the individual pieces separately if you only want one or two parts of the collection. But why wouldn't you want EVERYTHING?
 
 
Have a cheeky day!
Water Baby
Hi, guys, it's Laurie, and I'm back again with another layout using products from my May Cheeky Studio design team kit. I really wanted to use the Midnight Florals collection, but I had just the perfect pictures and coordinating papers to go with the Flamingo Fun products, so that's what I ended up using for this layout. 
 
Flamingo Fun is a tropical-themed and summery collection with pineapples, watermelons, flamingos, and bright colors. I love the mixture of pieces in the ephemera pack and how those same designs can be found on the flair pieces.
 
 
The sequins are also a nice complement to the rest of the collection with a mixture of pinks and greens. As you can see, I created a few embellishment clusters, and then sprinkled some of the sequins throughout.
 
 
I also received a Shimmerz Vibez spray in Pop Art Pink, and I did a little bit of splatter on the page. I think even on the yellow paper it still comes out pretty shimmery and pink-y.
 
 
The design of this layout is based on a PageMaps sketch that I had pinned on Pinterest, so this ended up being a super simple layout using the sketch and elements that were already in my stash, and the Flamingo Fun embellishments really elevated what I already had.
 
 
Thanks for looking and have a cheeky day!

Happy as a Lark
Hi everyone, it's Laurie, and I'm so happy to share with you my first Cheeky Studio scrapbook layout for the month of May! This is a combination of some of the products that came in my May design team kit, plus a few older Cheeky Studio products. Yes, those pandas made another appearance. They are just so cute and I have so many panda pictures to scrap!
 
This is actually my take on the May sketch challenge. Don't forget to play along in the Cheeky Studio Facebook group or by using #getcheeky and #cheekystudio when sharing your layout on social media for your chance to win a prize this month!
 
 
First up is the "Happy as a Lark" wood veneer. You're probably thinking that it looks green in this photo, and that's because I used some embossing powder to give it a sparkly green texture. I thought that would work better with the color scheme of the layout.
 
I also combined some of the pandas and butterflies from the Panda-monium collection with some of the flowers and that adorable banner from the Flamingo Fun collection. I thought the pinks in both collections worked pretty well together.
 
 
 
The sequins are from the Flamingo Fun sequins mix, which is a nice mix of pinks and greens and some really cool translucent sequins! I scattered them around the page and used them as accents in the center of my yellow Flamingo Fun ephemera flowers.
 
 
A little bit of green misting spray splatter from my stash, and we're good to go!
 
Have a cheeky day!
 
Laurie

Laurie's May Design Team Kit Unboxing
Hi all! What a surprising design team kit this was to receive! I loved everything that came in it. Want to know what I got? Let's get into it! 
 
The first thing I pulled out was the Shimmerz Pop Art Pink. I was so happy to be receiving another Shimmerz product, and this color is just gorgeous! I think it's going to be perfect with the super summery Flamingo Fun collection that I received!
 
 
Of course, the ephemera and flair have flamingos in them, but there are also watermelon, pineapples, hearts, and super cute banners! Plus, there is a coordinating sequins mix. I can't wait to use this one on summertime pictures!
 
 
I also got the brand new Midnight Florals. Don't you just love the name? You're going to love the gorgeous deep pink and turquoise color scheme of this collection, too. It's got an ephemera pack, 4x6 project life cards, and flair. 
 
 
I also received the Easter 2018 flair to add to my leftover Easter 2018 collection (still have Easter photos to scrap!), as well as a "Happy as a Lark" wood veneer that I didn't snap a picture of because I used it already on a layout! Ha ha! Stay tuned to find out what I did!
 
 
Thanks for reading and have a cheeky day!

2 Cute with the Furry Friends Collection
Hi everyone, it's Laurie! Earlier this month my daughter turned 2 and the theme of the party was dogs! So when I saw the Cheeky Studio Furry Friends collection featuring dogs, I just knew it was going to be perfect to scrap the photos from her birthday!
 
For this layout, which is a scraplift of a layout by Tiffany Hood, I used a variety of patterned paper from a Recollections paper pad, the Furry Friends ephemera, the Furry Friends sequins mix, and the pink polka dot bows. Those bows made the perfect banner just underneath my title. 
 
  
 
I just love the selection of pieces in the ephemera pack. With the dogs, hearts, presents, and cupcakes, this would be adorable for Valentine's Day, dogs, baking, birthdays, and so much more!   
 
I also used one of the cards from the Furry Friends Accessory Pack to fit in my photo grid and become part of the title and cut another one of the cards into a banner shape to use as a journaling spot.
 
 
Aren't those dogs cute???? Any ephemera pack that has Corgis in it is A-okay with me!
 
 
Thanks for looking and have a cheeky day!
You Can't Make New Old Friends
Hey Friends, it's Laurie Here!
 
I'm sure you've heard the phrase "Go big or go home!" That's how I felt when I saw Miranda's sketch for the Cheeky Studio April sketch challenge. What a big title! But I knew I wanted to play along. 
 
And while reading a magazine I came across the perfect title for a photo of me and my high school friends that was taken over the Christmas holiday: You Can't Make New Old Friends
 
 

For this layout, I used the Easter 2018 collection! Easter, you say? But it doesn't look like Easter on this layout. I know! Isn't that the beauty of Cheeky Studio products? Those gorgeous florals and banner can be used in conjunction with the cute bunnies that come in the ephemera pack or you can use them on their own in a variety of different ways.


I also used the Easter 2018 sequins mix and the Mini Bows in White. There are a few splatters of the Shimmerz Vibez Don't Rain On My Parade, which came in my Cheeky Studio Valentine's Day 2018 Mixed Media Kit.

 

 

I kept this layout fairly simple mainly due to the big title (created using some Recollections alpha stickers that were on sale at Michael's) and also due to the busy pattern of the Pink Paislee Wild Child paper.

 
So that's my layout! I love how it turned out, and I thank Miranda for challenging me to go BIG with my title! 
 
 
A few things: we'd love for you to participate in the challenge, too, so head over to the Cheeky Studio Facebook group to share your take on the sketch. Or use the hashtags #getcheeky and #cheekystudio when sharing your page on social media. You have until the end of this month. There will be a prize! 
 
Thanks for looking and have a cheeky day!

Bunny Love
Happy Easter, everyone, from Laurie!
 
My Easter basket of goodies came early as you probably already saw with my Cheeky Studio design team kit for this month. And today I'm sharing with you the first layout using the Easter 2018 collection that came in my kit!
 
I just loved the color scheme of the collection with the blues and oranges and browns. And I had recently purchased a Recollections paper pad at Michael's with patterned paper that was just the perfect fit.  
 
I was also able to incorporate some orange and white Prima flowers from my stash to make some 3-D embellishment clusters along with the feathers and florals from the Easter 2018 ephemera pack. 
 
 
 
Don't you just love that bunny in the hot air balloon? So cute! And I'm in love with the mix of blues in the Easter 2018 sequins mix. They are so shiny and gorgeous! 
 
 
I also used one of the bunnies with the basket from the ephemera pack. I liked that the basket and the burlap piece from my stash sort of mimicked each other. My ephemera pack actually came with two bunnies with basket: one small and one big. So I still have another one to use for another Easter layout! 
 
I have to say that I am totally in love with how this layout turned out. I was really pleased with how well the Easter 2018 collection fit with elements I already had in my scrap stash, and I still have so many more pieces left over for scrapping more Easter photos! 
 
 
Have a cheeky day!

Laurie's April Design Team Kit Unboxing
Hello!  It is Laurie again!
 
Get ready for another month of cheeky! My April Cheeky Chicks design team kit came at the perfect time, seasonally speaking. It included the new Easter 2018 collection, which is going to be great for scrapbooking those bunny breakfast pictures! 
 
 
I really like this collection because it's got a nice mix of florals, ribbons, banners, and cute bunnies in baskets and hot air balloons. Plus, the color scheme isn't in your typical Easter colors, which is very refreshing. Part of the collection includes a sequins mix, and I also received some big white bows that will be a perfect addition to the Easter ephemera and sequins.
 
Next up, I got the new Furry Friends collection, which was also perfect timing because my daughter just had a dog-themed birthday party and this collection is all dogs! This consists of three pieces: an accessory pack of small square cards that would be perfect for creating background images or using for project life or Traveler's Notebooks, an ephemera pack that comes with A LOT of super cute pieces, and a sequins mix. 
 
 
I love, love, love that this collection has little corgi dogs in it. They are adorable, and Tuesdae captured their cuteness so well.
 
To go along with the collection, I also received a pack of big pink bows.
 
And then I also got the Get Cheeky acrylic word that is going to be great for using as a title on one of my layouts!
 
 
Stay tuned to see what I create with this awesome kit! And don't forget to head over to the store so you can get your hands on these cool scrappin' goodies, too!
 
 
Have a cheeky day,

Laurie

My Cheeky Toddler
Hi everyone, it's Laurie again, and  I'm excited to share with you my latest scrapbook layout because it's all about pandas! Yep, this layout uses the new Panda-monium ephemera pack, and it was perfect for this picture of my daughter with her big stuffed panda. 
 
 
The ephemera pack includes a nice variety of super cute pandas in different sizes, so I pulled one of each panda to circle around the picture of my daughter. And then I pulled that funny panda showing us his bum to stand off on his own in the upper corner of my page. So funny! I used one of the Panda-monium flair next to that guy. 
 
Back to the circle cluster of pandas. I created a bunch of dimension and texture by adding the pink and blue butterflies from the ephemera pack and popping some of them up with craft foam. I also added the Panda-monium sequin mix and the black and polka dot bows from the Monthly Words kit. Those bows were really perfect for these pandas! 
 
  
 
This picture was taken when my daughter was 20 months, so it was getting harder and harder to get her to sit still for a picture. I had the "Cheeky" acrylic word in my design team kit, and I thought it made the perfect title for this layout because it was definitely my daughter's personality in this picture. I have no idea what face she was making, but she is getting cheeky as we are entering the toddler phase. 
 
I also did some Shimmerz spray on my white cardstock with the Shimmerz Vibez Don't Rain On My Parade and Shimmerz Coloringz Pink Stilettos. Both are available in the Cheeky Studio store.       
 
 
So that's my page! Thanks for looking and have a cheeky day!

My Panda BAB

Hey!  It is Tuesdae again!  I made this layout for Miexed Media Friday to share with you the process that I enjoy tremendously.  Stincile with heaby gesso and lots of shimmery in products.  For this I grabbed some old stash with my Viva Inka Golds, but appaartnetly even they neede da little TLC so one  of them didn't work.  I grabbed a spray from my stash and was able to matc the colors perfectly.

I have been wanting to paly with my deco foil for some times and so I did add a bit a of foil to the letters in the title.  I mean really, who can go wrong with Shimmer and Shine?

I finished off the embellishing with some of the new PAnda-monium ephemera, swquins and flair at the Cheeky Studio Shop and at all came together quite easliy.  I did scraplift myself on this laoyt, so maybe that is cheating but hey it turned out fine and I am more than happy with it so I hope you are too.

I hope it inspires you to make a layout that you scraplife yourself or make a layout based on a special occastion that the embellismnets or colors don't actually go with that Special Occastion. Scrapbooking is meant to fill your heart with art and taht is what I have done here! 

I hope you enjoy!

XOXO

Tuesdae
