Limited Edition Scrapbook Kit Reveal! SGD!

I am very happy to be posting today cause it’s for Sheila at Scrappin’ Great Deals! I was so excited when I was asked to design for the September Kit I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it! It’s packed full of AWESOME goodies and is available for sale starting September 1st! These Limited Edition 12 x12 kits sell out FAST so don’t miss your chance! Check out the Scrappin Great Deals website, they will ship world wide!!! This kit is so versatile I was able to make a whole bunch of stuff, so keep scrolling down to see all the pictures!
Anything you see in the pictures that isn’t in the kit was from my own stash and can also be found at SGD…so, here goes…
For the first layout I created, I used the pastel plaid paper by Little Yellow Bicycle. It matched perfectly with the dress my daughter is wearing in the pics. I used my Cricut to cut out the letters & flowers sprouting from Bazzill cardstock doodle strips at the bottom of the page . I Added some of the BoBunny chipboard accents and a few buttons to finish it off!
I used the ‘Honeycomb’ paper by Basic Grey for my 2nd layout. I thought the sepia tone in the picture would work well with the rustic look to this pattern. I used my Cricut (I can’t live without it when I scrapbook!) to cut out the letters. I cut the letters out a second time with the shadow mode and then used some blue chalk to ink around the edges. If you look closely I added some light pink and yellow Robins Nest dew droplets ‘cause they remind me of the little blobs of honey that you get after squeezing it from the bottle and thought it tied in with the theme! I made a lot of cards with this kit! I used my copic markers to colour all of the images for my cards. (Sheila has THE best selection of copics by the way). For this card, I love how the Lulu Ketto image (by Stamping Bella) fit right inside the big chipboard accent, and the Bling it flower by Basic Grey went well with all the sparkles in the paper. This paper is absolutely gorgeous and has alot of sparkle to it but unfortunately my camera didn't quite pick it up very well!
One of my favourite items in the kit was the Sakura Glitter pen (what a score!). I LOVE these pens. I especially love this one. I used it to outline the stamped Anya Mermaid image to add some shimmer! I co-ordinated the Cloud 9 Orange Grove designer paper with the blue Bazzill cardstock and used the orange metallic shimmer cardstock for the base of the card. I added some waves at the bottom using my Fiskars Boundary Waters border punch.
For the next card I used the green argyle patterned paper by Lemonade, with the orange metallic card stock. I used the chipmunk image (The Greeting Farm) and the Mini Shimmer alphas with the chocolate brads to give the card the feeling of fall (which doesn't feel too far away with all this chilly weather we've been having...aaack!).
I used the same patterned paper but got a completely different look for my next card. The awesome Prima Caboodles flowers are perfect for this layout! I used the cream coloured Bazzill cardstock for the base.
I still had a little bit of paper left over and thought it matched the blue & pinks (& orange carrot) in this turtle/ bunny image I had (The Greeting Farm). I also used the glitter pen to outline the flower on turtles head!
I have never used a transparent overlay before but found one of my favourite pictures my son took of me and my hubby a few years back and thought it went great. This one by Bo-Bunny called Happy Together is adorable! I kept it really simple and used the cream coloured Bazzill cardstock for the base and added the treasured moments twill ribbon with the Bazzill cardstock doodle strips (it's much nicer in person..I swear lol). As you can see, the possibilities are endless and I still had a ton of stuff left over! You have to check out these other fantastic blogs Deena , Leah and Sarah to see how they created with this kit! Don't forget, they go on sale September 1st and they don't last long!!! Thanks Sheila for letting me play, I had SO much fun!
