Kit 'n Kaboodles July kit

I can't wait to start playing with these luscious papers..... BoBunny, We R Memory Keepers, and some Webster's Bloomers will make for some beautiful pages!

My mother actually owned peacocks for a while, how amazing would that be to find those photos?! Unfortunately, they are on a cd somewhere, who knows where. I would love to do a page of my mother's love for her birds. We'll see.....

Keep an eye out, the Design Team will start revealing with this kit very soon! Check out the kit and all the add-ons as well, at . Happy scrapping!

KNK June Kit reveal #1

Burnt reds and cool blues make for some beautiful summer-themed pages! I love the colors in these Quick Quotes "My Michelle" papers, and the vintage-style Core'dinations cardstock are a perfect compliment. I hadn't intended to make a double layout with these photos, I just couldn't seem to pick out one or two no matter how hard I tried! Grace had so much fun playing with our dog Cassie, making bubbles for her to chase and catch, and the photos told the story so well (Cassie is actually airborne in a couple of those pics)! The color-core cardstock flowers are meant to mimic the bubbles in the the photos, and I cut the centers from a piece of patterned paper in the kit. A simple button cross-stitch holds the layers together.
I don't often use only one photo on a layout, but sometimes one is all you need. I love this picture of my girls looking at the ocean.... I wish I could have read their little minds at that moment!

The word "thoughts" in the title is from the Stampendous Summer Words sticker sheet in the kit, I love how it looks hand-written on the paper. The stickers blend beautifully! A few Prima flowers and some rub-ons from my stash (which I thought I would never use!!) balanced everything without looking overdone.

That is all for now! I still have tons of this kit left so I'm going to get to work :) Be sure to stop by to see what the rest of the design team has done with this beautiful summer kit!
