Hi all! I am truly having so much fun with the glorious Birds Of A Feather August kit. There are still three left in stock and also plenty of fun extras, so head over to the boutique now and snatch them up while you can! This kit is truly perfect for all those happy moments and summer memories!
Here's my first layout for today's reveal. I used this sketch from Shimelle Lane as inspiration. I adapted the sketch to fit my larger photos. (My two sets of six photos are actually just two 6x4 photo collages that I put together in PhotoShop.) I decided on the woodgrain background paper (found in the extra patterned paper) to help tie the layout into all the earthy colors in the photos. I kept the embellishing minimal because of all the photos on the page and decided to focus on the two elephant Glitz Whatnots. I added an eye to my big elephant using an enamel dot leftover from my April Kit. Then, I created lots of small elephants by fussy-cutting them from the elephant-patterned Whatnot. Did you notice my blue elephant matching backwards? :)
And my next layout is one of my favorite recent creations! I love, love this Simple Stories breeze paper that came with the extra patterned paper and was inspired when I saw it used on this layout from Susan Weinroth. I was also inspired by the diagonal line on her layout and just rotated the orientation of my layout horizontally. I kept the embellishing pretty minimal because I wanted the bold papers and fun photos to shine. I did jazz up the corrugated Thickers with some of the Smooch red glitter though!
Finally, I had some fun creating this card. I wanted to use one of the fun Pebbles library card and when I saw the blank paper, I thought it would be fun to stamp a sentiment over and over on it. But then the pocket already had a sentiment on it. So, I decided to "extend" the sentiment with a Technique Tuesday stamp and also pulled out some of the Lily Bee alphas (yet again) from my May Kit to help with that as well.
Thanks for checking out my projects today! I'll be back on Tuesday with a fun technique...and sadly, will be my last reveal as a Birds Of A Feather ScrapChick.
