Scrapbook Circle Guest Designer

Happy October! This month, I am guesting at Scrapbook Circle and this month's kits are SUPER FUN! I've been a subscriber for close to three years and I really, really love the kits. They don't skimp, the selections are so well put together, I literally get excited when I find my kit on my doorstep. Today on their blog is my introduction post, which includes a fun Q&A and the first project I made for them. More projects will be revealed throughout the month as we go through and play with our kits, including a sketch and other fun product and technique based challenges. I am soooooo looking forward to it all!

I loved playing with this kit. Lisa's got a great eye for mixing all the latest and greatest into her kits. There's lots of brand new Chickaniddy Crafts, Elle's Studio and Fancy Pants Designs. I made this 8x8 layout using only the Main Kit, "On This Day", which is still available for purchase. This is about Bearemy, Jabran's beloved teddy bear who had lost his arm and needed some stitching - so Grandma's mending it:

Sand Play - My Creative Scrapbook

Another 8x8 layout! Seriously, I don't think I'm ever going back to the 12x12. How are you guys? Tonight I played with the AMAZING June Sketch over at My Creative Scrapbook. For this project I used their June Limited Edition Kit.

Love this photo of Rianna. She was two at the time, playing in the sand at the lake. What cracks me up is her curled toes with the one big toe pointing out. Adorbs.

I fell in love with all the Kaisercraft Kaleidoscope papers in this kit, but I was only able to get two sheets and half of the Sugar Blooms flower package in a kit swap. I was happy. It was enough for me to create a layout and so I can play along with their sketches. Don't you just love those triangles?

I started off by layering the floral side of the Impasto paper over teal cardstock. I really loved the triangle and dashed line elements in this sketch. I cut triangles out of the chevron pattern in the Original paper, then masked my Static 6x6 Stencil with washi tape and dabbed it with Olive Vine Chalk Fluid to recreate the dashed lines element. I die cut the Simon Says Stamp Sketchy Banners journaling strip from white cardstock and colorwashed it with Worn Jeans Chalk Fluid. The title letters are from their May kit.

Here I cut the backside of both papers and some gray cardstock to mat my photo. To make the banner, I used a Taylored Expressions Pennant Border Die embossed with the Cuttlebug Polka Dot Embossing Folder, highlighted the raised dots with Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen, then dabbed Olive Vine and Teal Damask Chalk Fluid over it. The branches are Memory Box Grove Branch and Honeyblossom Sprig dies.

It's different from my regular style, but I really like how it turned out. It was fun experimenting with a little shabby chic. ;)

I hope you are all having a great week so far, thanks so much for visiting.
Hugs and Happy Scrappin'!!!!
