Club La-La Land Crafts - More October Kit Inspiration


Hello Crafty Friends! I'm here to show a few more projects I've created using Club La-la land Craft's October 2019 kit! It's too late to subscribe to get the kit that I've used in the projects below, but if you subscribe next month, you can purchase past kits with your 2nd subscription!


First project is a card using the Warm Hugs Marci and the Mountains die. I did some no-line coloring and love the softness! I really love the look I got from layering of the Simple Joys and Shine Bright background stamps! They're a little pricey but totally worth it to always have enough patterned cardstock that perfectly coordinates with the rest of your project! I'm going to try using the background stamps in my planner soon! ;)

I've been wanting to practice No-Line Coloring so I did just that with the Winter Piggies. I made some gift tags using the Large Stitched Tags Die. I used the Mountain and Lakes die that came with the kit to create the fun winter scene in each tag. At first I was going to leave the larger tag white, but then I decided to use the snowman and some of the sentiments in the kit to make a simple patterned background.

By the way, have you bought any La-La Land Crafts Designer Paper Packs yet? They're Amazing! They're 80-lb. double sided paper with a semi-gloss finish. The snow flake and diamond patterned papers are from the Christmas Hodgepodge paper pack. They're not available on the website yet, but it's a really cool winter paper pack with a pretty big range of color schemes! I was lucky enough to be able to buy this paper pack at the Sacramento Stamp and Scrapbook Expo at La-La Land Craft's booth!

Here's some planner inspo using the new stamp Oh Deer! Stamp set! I love how versatile the stamp set. There are festive holiday elements that are included in the stamp set, but if you leave them out you can use this all year round!

I used distress oxide ink in my B6 traveler's notebook. I've been really into the combo of Shaded Lilac and Tumbled Glass. I stamped the Oh-Deer image using the Inkon3 Fade-out No-line Coloring Ink, it makes no-line coloring so much easier and so clean!  Then I colored in the images using copic markers!

Here are projects that I've created as inspiration using the October 2019 Kit! For this kit I'm all about soft colors and shakers!

My first project are some shaker bookmarks using the adorable little Piggies in the Winter Piggies stamp set. I also used the lakes and mountains dies that comes with the kit. I really love how these bookmarks turned out!

My next project is a shaker card using the Warm Hugs Marci and the lakes and mountains dies. I wanted it to look like Marci is looking out the window into a beautiful winter scene. I was in a pastel mood so I kept with that color theme.

More Club La-La Land Crafts September Kit Inspo

First project is a card using the Marci with Lemons stamp and Lemonade Stand dies. I used distress oxide inks on the scalloped circle dies using colors inspired by pink and yellow lemonade!

I made another card using the Mice from the Squeeze the Day stamp set. They're sooo adorable! I made a glass of lemonade using the Cold Drink die. I love the look of die cut vellum! I also used the lemon in the "Lemons/Lemonade" die set. I used the mouse with the lemon, and the one drinking lemonade to convey the message: "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade", which pairs so nicely with the "Squeeze the Day" sentiment.

Here's a project that I've created using the new Big Bold Magnolias Stamp set! I used Zig clean markers to water color in my hobonichi weeks! I stamped the magnolias using the Inkon3 Fadeout No Line Coloring detail Ink and then watered colored in the flowers and leaves.

Lesson learned from water coloring directly in my hobonichi, you definitely need a light hand or else the color will bleed through. :(

Zig Clean markers used:
No. 025 Pink, No. 045 Pale Green, No. 067 Mustard
