KnK August Kit Reveal

Here's what I created with the awesome August kit from Kit 'n' Kaboodles. We worked with Luxe Designs Ecology line.

Two pager: A Day at the Zoo:
By Myself: (Took the picture crooked, so the whole page looks crooked LOL)Corn on the Cob:Altered chipboard house. This little house comes in the kit! Isn't it cute?The only things I added that weren't in the kit were the Thickers and buttons. It's hard to tell in the pictures, but I left more white space on the one page layouts because that white cardstock has a gorgeous embossed swirl pattern on it! A bunch of the KnK gals are in Orlando this week for CHA, so I'm sure we will be seeing a lot of fun new products being added to the store and in upcoming kits very soon! I can't wait to see what they have in store for us!

Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday and KnK August Kit

I've been hoarding these Cosmo Cricket papers for a while now, and these fun pictures that I took of Chloe swinging upside down gave me the perfect excuse to use them. I created this week's sketch at Creative Scrappers and that's what I used for this page. Here is my page for Creative Scrappers Sketch #61Along with Cosmo Cricket, I used Heidi Swapp and Imaginisce flowers, American Crafts Thickers, and misc. lace and trim from Hobby Lobby on my page. I did a lot of distressing and inking on this page too.

I also want to give you a peek at the August kit at Kit 'n' Kaboodles. Doesn't it look fun?

Back Porch Memories Sneak Peeks

I had the pleasure of doing the member layouts at Back Porch Memories this month. I got to play with both the Solo and Medley kits, and I created six layouts (3 one page layouts and 3 two page layouts) with some fabulous sketches by DT member, Tami Floyd. If you are a BPM kit subscriber, you will be able to access the sketches and all of my layouts with the username and password included in your kit. If you aren't a kit subscriber, what are you waiting for? These kits are fantastic! Here are some sneak peeks of what I created...

I Love That Face

Here's my take on Creative Scrappers sketch #59. This week's sketch was created by Kristine Davidson who also redesigned my blogs this week! Thank you Kristine!

For my page, I used Fancy Pants Summer Soiree papers, Tim Holtz Grungeboard that I covered with Stickles, Bo Bunny border sticker, and Doodlebug alpha stickers. Don't forget about the Creative Scrappers DT call and the One Picture, Many Pages contest! Deadlines are quickly approaching!
