Scrapbook Circle January-SEVEN layouts!

First-thank you for your patience regarding my sleepy blog. Losing my father has put a halt to lots of everyday things... Thanks to so many that sent cards, emails, FB messages, sent meals, helped with kids... It has been fantastic to feel so much love and support!

Anyway, this kit was obviously some needed creative therapy.

I don't think you need more testimonial than SEVEN layouts from the kit. Yes. I added some alpha stickers... and a couple of embellishments-but 90% of what I used I would say was from the kit! SEVEN! I have never gotten 7 layouts from one months kit before I don't think!

LOVE the papers I get from this kit! I honestly thought I would miss getting coordinating cardstock. NOT at all! I don't use color much, and I have a lot of cardstock-so I MUCH rather get more printed! YAY!

So here is what I did:

Love placing the title in/on the picture sometimes. :)

This one-used a twisty tie to make a scroll/banner. And this heart pattern paper, I cut 4 inched down, flipped it, and the hearts lined up! Very cool!
This one... not only did I play with more banner action, but also scrapped some Build a Bear pictures... it's
Plus my Cricut expert friend Michele cut this heart for me. I told her the size (tall and width) and how far from the edge, and she programed it up on her gypsy. Crazy cool!
This one is my favorite, thought it didn't photograph as well as I would have liked... Using spray ink is very art-therapy for me! Added some star "confetti" too from my 'punch all over the page' punch.
This is me embracing this busy heart paper... and having some fun with my American Crafts Thickers...
Saw a similar variation of the banner craze, and I jumped aboard... It follows the blog entry about "trend spotting" (seen here)
Another of MY favorites... I think it is the mist again... :)
I borrowed some shiny red paper from my friend Shelley, and made MORE star "confetti"!
There ya go! All SEVEN layouts from this months kit over at Scrapbook Circle!
Go get one of these fantastic kits before they sell out! :)
