Hello there & happy Sunday to you all (well all of you to the West of me) Happy Monday to the rest of ya! I've had a GREAT weekend so am in a very good mood :) I have plenty of blogging & blog hopping to catch up on because...I have been busy SCRAPPING!! I have plenty to show for it so better get to it!
I have been working on this wonderful new kit from My Creative Scrapbook - available for purchase HERE. As usual it is chockablock full of beautiful papers & embellishments & I managed to create FIVE layouts with it & could have continued if I had the time! You can easily get 6 or 7 layouts out of this kit - or 5 layouts & quite a few cards. Great value!!
I really loved the lightness & whimsy of the Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic papers & tried to create an ombre effect here with my misting.
The "Cherish" title at the top was cut from the Prima Packaging that came behind the flowers & on the little wooden embellishments (which by the way are just adorable.)
We got a whole pack of sentiment stickers (which contained 2 sheets) so adding all the sentiments and other bits & bobs was really easy. I just lifted some up to 3D them (using foam tape, 3D glue dots and box cardboard).
I used my stapler a lot as I was going for the casual "thrown together" look that I am so in love with at the moment. The blue strip you see above is one of the identification strips from the bottom of one of the patterned papers (I used a lot of those!)
Hand journaling to keep it quick & easy & using up some of my pile of Mini-Instax photos as I was inspired to do that by the polaroid patterned paper. I'm also enjoying embellishing with string & thread at the moment (loopy de loop style!) Can't get much cheaper than that :)
Everything comes from the kit except for the bubble punch, which is from Martha Stewart, the doilies from Bo Bunny, the mists from Tattered Angels (Lemon Zest & Key Lime) & Custard Mr. Huey from Studio Calico, the staples, black journaling pen (Schachihata 0.4), the string & the pink inkpad from Doodlebug - which I used to recolour the wooden Prima flowers.
I'm sorry the photos are not 100% clear. I resized them down from 800x800 to 600x600 so that I could get them to fit into my blog template but am not happy with the result :( so will revert back in future but for now all my kit club DT work is already edited & in draft this way.
Thanks for visiting & have a fantastic week everyone!
