Ready for fall? The main kit especially just makes me feel like fall. Warm colors, numbers, back to school. I have to be honest…. I like this kit way more than the projects I made with it. Does that make sense? I was in a rush to create with it and I don’t really LOVE my pages this month, but I guess that happens sometimes. 🙂 I loved seeing the DT gallery though and soaking in some major inspiration from those ladies! Here’s what I came up with:
Eight: This is my main kit only layout for the month. There are 8 cousins on the Samuels’ side of the family and I love this iphone photo I snapped of them all lined up. 🙂 I cut the numbers in the paper apart and then just layered them to make a border. I used my Cameo to do the journaling for a fun twist.Supplies: Central High kit, Cameo
To the Top: This page started off looking much different…and then I lost it and got frustrated and got the chevron washi out. It’s a little busy for my taste, but that washi tape is so cool it makes up for it. 😉 Supplies: Central High, The Register, Style Guide
Dude You Got Air: When I saw the little “dude” speech bubble die cut I knew I needed to use it on a page with Connor jumping off the dunes. I tilted the whole photo block a little for fun.Supplies: Central High, The Register, Style Guide, Stazon ink, Central High digital brush
And that’s it! I also have a quick card to share… you can read the tutorial on how I created the rainbow watercolor resist (say that five times fast!) on the SC blog here.
As a DT member anyways. I decided not to renew my term as a DT member for BG given my current stage of life and the limited scrap time that comes with that lately. I’ve always been a HUGE fan of BG…as my paper collection would prove!… so I’m bummed to let this opportunity go. But I feel like it’s a good decision for me right now. Anyways, if you like sketches, check out their blog today and play along. I think this is such a fun sketch. Here’s my take on it.
I also have a page that never made it onto the blog for some reason… thought I’d share that today too…. some Easter pics of my niece. It was for the banner and lanterns flickr challenge a while back.
On a different note… reveal is tonight at Studio Calico. I’ll be back tomorrow hopefully with my September kit layouts.
It’s way early to be posting sneaks… but with different vacation plans this month I’ve only had a few days to really work on this kit and already need to put it away now even though reveal’s not for another week or so. It’s sad! 😉 You will love the main kit, Central High. The fall-ish colors are gorgeous, the patterns are so easy to work with…it just all meshes so perfectly. And sad to say… I barely had time to break into the digi items and cut files. So much great stuff. Anyways, I got the Style Guide and Register add ons this month. Thanks for stopping by….
A while ago I shared how I converted my dresser into a scrapbooking desk. And then I shared on the SC blog about how I organized the drawers, etc in my desk. I mentioned then that I needed some shelves to go above the desk and fill in all that empty wall that was previously hidden by a tall shelf unit. Well, I bought those shelves back in May from Ikea and now almost 3 months later… I’ve hung them! And decorated them! What can I say… once a procrastinator, always a procrastinator. 😉 But now it’s officially done!
The “snappy.” print is from this shop on etsy. The fabric leaves are from this one. Everything else I made with stuff I had around the house and/or my Cameo machine.
And I had a decorative yet functional use for this pretty button frame. It had a sort of soft fabric backing so I decided instead of using it for a photo I’d use it as a pin cushion for some of my stick pins. I always think those are too pretty for the drawer anyways! 🙂
If you have any questions…just let me know!
