This kit was one of my favorites that I have ever made! Seriously loved the creams, pinks, and gold, with the textures of the canvas and kraft hearts, the gold chunky glitter Thickers, yummy Color Shine... anyway, I killed a pretty good portion of this kit last week, so I am happy to share what I made with it!
Probably my favorite page from this kit; "34th Birthday Pancakes":
so many reasons I love this page, but it started with the product! I love the Maggie Holmes Flea Market collection, and the sheet of vintage plates was probably one of my absolute favorite things about the line, but I had no idea how I was going to use it. Then I saw that someone had cut them out and sprinkled them across the page, and had an AHA! moment...it was the perfect solution...and I could re-arrange the plates on my page in clusters with other bits and pieces, so that my favorite pieces were showing. I added in chipboard, enamel dots, drips and drops of Color Shine mist, and then added the photo and story about how special my Mommy made me feel (yes, I still call her Mommy) when she made me a special breakfast and brought it to me for my birthday. A simple little story, but one I don't want to forget.
More fun products to capture one of life's best moments with my love- Background paper by Basic Grey, from their Mellow collection a few years ago, and from Sassafrass Lass's Sunshine Broadcast (I think) line, mixed with bits of chipboard from Maggie Holmes, an enamel geotag and enamel dots, kraft labels from Target's dollar spot, a few bits from my scrap bin (the journaling card that I put under the chipboard frame, and the pink hydrangea in the cluster) I also slipped in a leftover plate from the vintage dishes patterned paper.
This layout was inspired by the lovely Jill Sprott. The background was not in my kit, but I saw her lovely layout, and was instantly inspired to sit down and scrap, and this is the result, something a good bit different from what I normally do, because I am usually a bit too lazy to pull out the paint for my pages, then too impatient to wait for it to dry before I continue creating. But I did it this time, and I am quite happy with the result! Thanks for the idea, Jill! I put down all sorts of journaling cards from my stash, then painted over them all with a watered down white acrylic paint. Then, I actually went about my housework, etc, and waited for it to dry! It was actually pretty painless ;-) . Once it had dried, I built the layout on top with lots of bits from the kit for embellishment, drips and spritzes of mist, added the photos and story of my daughter creating a birthday card for my son (basically she just wanted an excuse to try out all of my mists), and did some final embellishing.
Susan's blog -she makes some of the best Disney pages and sketches I have seen, too). Most supplies for this page are from the kit, although I did pull out the blue glitter Thickers from my stash, since I knew they came from the MH Flea Market collection, and I felt that they would work a little better with the layout than the gold ones. I even got to use some of the fun Studio Calico printables, as they suited the travel theme of the page perfectly:
