Back to my kit. I’m loving how the papers came together. Here’s a list of my papers:
WRMK ‘Love 2 Craft’ red polka dot
Amy Tangerine ‘Yes, Please’ ledger
Bazzill solid blue cardstock
Echo Park ‘Everyday Eclectic’ (images and music notes papers)
WRMK chevron washi sheet
My Mind’s Eye ‘Lost and Found 2’ yellow polka dot
Solid cardstock by Bazzill, American Crafts and Echo Park
Then to choose embellishments, I took my cues from the SC kit colors. Wood, aqua, blue, yellow and grey are all in there. I also took inspiration from the types of embellies in there: sequins, resin flowers, thread/twine, and washi tape. And then I know I personally like to layer up stickers, brads and diecuts, so I made sure to add those, and some letter stickers for titles.
Here’s a partial list of my embellies:
Letter stickers – Amy Tangerine and Jillibean Soup
Sticker sheets – Crate Paper ‘Storyteller’ and Amy Tangerine ‘Ready Set Go’
Die cuts – Dear Lizzy ‘5th and Frolic’, Amy Tangerine ‘Ready Set Go’, My Mind’s Eye ‘Miss Caroline’
Wood veneers – Studio Calico
Clips – Freckled Fawn and Pebbles
Flair buttons – Bluebird Chic
Brads – My Mind’s Eye, BasicGrey
I decided not to set aside any particular stamp sets with the kit, I’ll just use what works for each project.
The current sketch challenge at Timeless Twine caught my eye. And I included a couple of 10 yard packs of Timeless Twine in my kit, so I’m set. That grey, yellow and white one is called “Cape Cod”, and the kraft and white is called “Krazy for Kraft”. You can get the details of the challenge HERE.
I then got to work placing the title, embellies, and twine on the layout. Here’s a stamped embellie.
I also incorporated some stamps into my journaling. If you take a close look, some of these are words that I inked from a longer sentiment. Did you notice these great words in the View Finder set? “Sweet”, “genius”, “hug”, “deserve”, “happy”, “smile” and “perfect”!
Here’s my completed layout. I’m so glad I made that kit, I never would have paired all of these pieces together otherwise!
- Find a way to mix up your supplies and make your older stuff feel fresh and new. (and then you can take part in our ‘Use What You Have Challenge’ each week!)
- Use stamped words or small images in your journaling for a fun look.
- Look for single words within your longer sentiments and mask to ink up only the words you want.
And here are the stamp sets I used (5 of them!):
I hope you can all join us for the August Release. Release day is August 14th, just around the corner!
