Another great kit from Kenner Road this month! Here's what I made:
This is one of the most "simple" layouts I've ever made. But I love it. (Totally obsessed with those Sassafras border stickers too - the blue squares attached to the orange and red strip - They make it so easy to scrap!)
I do a lot of hand cutting, but those tiny bumblebees were hard to handle! You can see the dry brushing of the background here really clearly. And the center piece is an extra stamped and colored (with a white Uniball Signo pen) image that I stuck a rhinestone to.
I don't usually do cutesy. But I loved these little banner triangles. I adhered them over the yellow paper with the bee. It still felt a bit empty to me, so I added the little "bee trail" behind the banner. Too cute!
Another hand cut title. They can be tricky to adhere, so I tend to just stick them down in a few locations and call it good. After all, my pages all end up in page protectors, so what can possibly happen to it? (PS: Can you see that gorgeous flocking in the background? Yum!)
Hands down, this is my favorite detail from any of my layouts. I took a vintage milk bottle top (from the kit) and stuck several of the pins into the edge. The effect is so cool and up against the flower stems, it really creates a sort of garden look!
This is one of those last minute layouts. I thought I was done, but the kit kept calling me back. I had to use that luscious Sassafras paper! I traced a stencil from the Crafter's Workshop and cut out the scallop shape. You can see it a bit better here:
I am not kidding when I tell you that this layout took me about 5 hours to make. And it is a total mess in my opinion. I just kept working it and working it and it refused to come together. But I was stubborn (and it shows) and wouldn't let it go. There's just too much going on.
And finally, I made two cards with the scrips and scraps left on my table. I'll have a tutorial up on the Kenner Road blog on how to make them on March 29. Here's a peek:
