This was my first month working with Paper Bakery Kits and I loved it! I created 4 projects with the Love Potion #9 Scrapbook Kit. I'm also sharing them over at the Paper Bakery blog today so stop by there too!
First up! I don't have a title but if I did it would probably be something super creative like "Bride". No really though, I have had this wedding photo printed for a long time now but never knew how to use it. It's one of my favorite wedding photos so it had to be good.
What I decided to do here, was cut up a sheet of 12x12" paper in to 1 inch squares. Then, I free hand cut the triangles to form a pattern about 8x8" square in the middle of some gray cardstock (from my stash). It took a while, but I love the simple, detailed look. I used pop-dots under the photo to raise it a bit off the triangles. Lastly, I journaled a few things I remember from the wedding day around the square. I love it. This is definitely one of my favorite layouts ever.
Hello Texas - I used one of the Paper Bakery sketches for this layout. (PS - if you participate in the sketch challenge you have a chance to win prizes!)
I recently moved to Texas from Chicago so whenever I see something "Texas", I get a pretty good laugh. I've truly never seen a pig at a furniture store or a wall full of cowboy boots. Culture shock, y'all. It's awesome though. I love it here and maybe one day I'll get used to seeing people wear cowboy hats for real. I created this layout using a bunch scraps. The hello stamp is from my shop.
Vegas - How cute are those October Afternoon frames? I was so excited to see them when I opened my kit. I printed out a few photos from our Vegas trip last fall.
I made an 8.5x11" layout so I could use both sides of this paper. (The floral pattern is on the back.) The pictures were printed at about 1.75" squares. There were one or two that I had to trim a little bit smaller. I scattered the frames throughout the middle of the page, then added kraft details to fill in any gaps.
Everything was was still kind of "floating" so I added the floral strips to create a frame and enclose the area. I think it helps finish the page. I used a white gel pen to add dashed lines to mimic stitching around the kraft pieces. I think this layout is a lot of fun and I'm glad about that because our trip was a lot of fun too!
Be sure to head over to Paper Bakery to look at all the kits available. I have my eye on the Project Kit. Love those glitter thickers! These kits are great because is a ton of stuff in the kits. You will love working with them!
