Welcome to the ScrapThat! 
May Anniversary Kit Reveal and Blog Hop!! 

I am happy to announce that I have joined the ScrapThat! Design team as their Video Educator !
For those of you new to my blog, let me introduce myself:
Some of you may know me online as “Kelly Creates.” I am a Canadian scrapbooker living in Edmonton, Alberta. I’m excited about sharing my designs and techniques with you through my video tutorials!”


May is our three year anniversary and we want to 
thank all our subscribers and members for sharing their pages and creations with us!!
We are so excited to share the details about our newest kit
 featuring the amazingly gorgeous Prima Divine !!
Here are two layouts I designed with this lovely kit:
I just love this photo of my mom and her friends back in 1953…riding those ‘bicycles built for two.’ They are on a girls weekend in Banff National Park.  And those girls know how to have fun!
A good friend of mine at Canadian Scrapbooker magazine, Connie Nichol is a stellar photographer and took these amazing pics of the birds in her backyard! I thought I would create a layout based on the yearning I have for spring to arrive after this very very long winter.
I also have made a video showing how this second layout came together.
  You can click HERE to watch it on YouTube.  Later this month I will share another video tutorial to show you how I made those vellum feathers.
If you came here from 
you are on the right track!

    Your tut on the bird lo was fantastic. I agree that the photos are stunning. Im glad you chose to use the feathers instead of the banner. They work great with the bird nest theme. Wish me luck.

    You have the BEST photos. I adore the pic of your mom and friends on the bicycles built for two. They do know how to have fun! And the bird photos are just exquisite. Even though you didn’t take them, I admire your good taste in using them! Love all the details, textures and layers on your bird page. Those feathers rock!
