Her Private Nook **My Creative Scrapbook** + tutorial

Hey there, friends!  I'm up on the My Creative Scrapbook blog today with a page I created using the October Main Kit.  I also have a tutorial up on how I made my messy painted background.  I really like the coral, turquoise and beige mixed together.  If you remember from my other post, at first I was very hesitant about this kit and these papers & embellishments...they're just not my typical style.  Once I dug through my photos and found these cute ones of Reese hanging out in her bay window, I knew they'd be perfect.  I honestly didn't think I'd use that big window die-cut...but it works for this!

I'm addicted to layers!  I even used the lace trim included in the kit...and I'm not a lacy person at all.  But it just seems natural with these romantic papers :)

Cord always adds a nice touch, and I inked up the Prima flowers and smushed them down a bit.

Modeling paste over a stencil added over the paint here...

I combined the blue letter stickers with a stamped title and a Cameo die-cut here...I like mixing and matching.

Here is how I created my background.  It looks difficult, but it's not!  Plus, it's a lot of fun :)

Here's the finished page again. 

Thanks for visiting me today!  See you soon!


  1. I love the window die cut on this page, Missy! It is so perfect with these photos! And I also love the different clock faces you have peeking out! You created such a pretty effect on the background! Really love it!

  2. Great idea for the background. Looks great.
