The monthly kits here at Scrapbook Circle continue to amaze me! I thought the June kit was wonderful…then came the July kit with all of its Cosmo Cricket Early Bird goodness…now I am totally IN LOVE with the Boyfriend in the August kit! (Okay, there wasn’t a real boyfriend in the kit, but the Cosmo Cricket line is love at first sight for me!!!)
So why am I going on & on about these kits??? Because I’m still pulling items from these kits & creating layouts, that’s why!
Here’s a layout that I recently created for the PageMaps blog contest. The layout had to have a summer theme, so I immediately pulled out the June kit and started playing!
Here’s the sketch:
and here’s what I came up with “Soak up the Sun”
I used supplies from the June, July & August kits! I’m sure that I have said this before, but you just gotta LOVE that!!!
Here’s a close up of a fun new technique that I have used several times recently:
It adds so much dimension to the layout & is really pretty easy, as long as you have a little bit of patience :0) If you are interested, there is a great tutorial over at 52Sketches52Weeks in their forum.
& finally, a close up of the fabulous little October Afternoon Road Map label stickers from the August kit:
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a great weekend…& SOAK UP THE SUN!!!!
Take care! Stacy
