This post to share my kit layouts using the April kit is WAY overdue. But here they are nonetheless. :) I used a lot of the digi options this month. From the diamond template for the Longwood Gardens page to the Stamp Brushes made into cut files (You Float My Boat!)…there are so many options for using these digital elements and they are really a great value. If you missed out on an add on and stamp you really wanted, give the digital stamp brush a try. :)
I finished up my title page last night. Well, I almost finished it and then ran out of ink while printing the last photo. Why does ink always seem to run out at night when you are just moments from finishing up a project? Or does that only happen to me? Anyways, after a trip to the store this morning, I slid the last photo into the last pocket and it’s done! I love the cards form SC’s Project Life kit this month! I also added in one of the printable 3×4 cards from my Bright Ideas class. The rest is just photos from our beach vacation last summer.
I used a couple digital brushes on the photos. The 4×6 has the twenty thirteen brush from this set. On the kids’ individual shots I decided to incorporate their ages. So I found pictures that worked with the shape of the number (so their faces weren’t totally covered) and then just sized my number brush to fit over the whole photo. I set the opacity of the brush so that it looks more like vellum instead of being totally white over the photos. You could do the same thing with vellum and your Silhouette actually! I like that it’s subtle but also a fun little element. It’s a little hard to see in the photos, but here’s a close up:
And that’s it! Thanks for stopping by… have you finished your title page yet? Have you finished 2012 yet? (I still have the month of December to do!)
