Little Monster Big Attitude - Paper House Productions

Little Monster, Big Attitude

If you are a parent to a child, the phrase "little monster, big attitude" may at times be your daily mantra! That being said, they sure are cute monsters! As my design team member creation I created a LO that I felt perfectly suited The Paper House Production range Lil' Monster Collection. Let's take a look at my Little Monster layout.

Don't you love how I have  fussy cut the paper and added pop dots!? The r pictures are just perfect for the layout and I loved their placement and layers. I have used the Monster Stack Paper, Monster Bunch Paper, Monster Madness Cardstock Stickers, and Family Chalkboard Stickers to create this monsterific layout.

The chalkboard stickers are perfect for journaling!

Little Monster- Kim Kendell

If you have a little monster at home and want to create this great layout, here's how;

Products Used:

2 x Sheets Paper House Monster Stack Paper
Paper House Monster Bunch Paper
Paper House Monster Madness Cardstock Stickers
Paper House Family Chalkboard Stickers
1 x sheet of Cardstock to mount photos on


1. Take cardstock and mount your main photo with a ¼ inch mat, take your second photo and cut down to be 5 x 4 and also mount that photo with a ¼ inch mat.

2. Take a sheet of the Monster Stack Pattern 12" Scrapbook Paper and cut all the circles and the Monsters adhere 3D foam to back of all these now mount these over the top of the 2nd sheet so they give off a 3D effect. See image of LO.

3. Adhere your photos and with your main photo also mounted on 3D foam see image for position and angles.

4. Take the Monster Bunch paper and cut the image of the monster that is above the 2nd photo.

5. Take the sticker sheet and adhere stickers as per image of LO.

6. Take your chalkboard stickers and use as per image of LO.

Flourish With A Bling

Hi All today I am sharing with you Flourish With a Bling  blog the way to use bling and lazer cuts and soften them with some ribbon they do work well together but sometimes they are a bit harsh to look at even stark but by simply threading in some soft ribbon you can soften the whole effect.

Below is my LO and some close up images of the ribbon threaded through the bling and how soft it looks.

This month at Memory Maze its a free for all, yes we can share with you anything we would love to share, so I have elected to share with you the following layouts

This Layout was created for the Scrappers Garden but I have also used Memory Maze chipboard to finish the layout.

As you can see from the close up I have cut my swirl and layered it and the birds on top of the oval frame to give a 3D effect.
 As you can see the birds oval and swirl just blend so well.
 I have used the following Memory Maze products

Birds in Garden
Nested Ovals Set 7

Swirl 10068

Authentic Words - forever
For my next share I would like to show you a Tag that I have created using one of the large Prima tags its 8.5 inches x 4.5 inches and was awesome to use as you had so much space to create on.

I have used a liquid gold paint to ink the Memory Maze chipboard vine and birds that that I have used on this tag as can be seen in the close ups.

I have also found that the birds are awesome to layer in with the flowers to give added depth.
