which kit to choose for August I ended up buying the second kit over at Coordinates Collections.
I worked with the "Vegetable Garden" kit as my DT assignment (it has already sold out) and then purchased the "Citrus Grove" kit just for fun. So I just got done posting all my projects in the gallery over there but I thought I'd share a favorite from each kit.
this one is from the "Vegetable Garden" kit. I used a piece of American Crafts PP as the background, mounted my pictures on whitecardstock (not included in kit), black velvet American Crafts ribbon across the bottom, black felt letters from Prima, fish were hand cut from some scrps of Cosmo Cricket paper, "koi" is doodlebug stickers which were flocked(not included in kit) and finally I used American Crafts "Purkey" rubons for my journaling (these were not in the kit either). to give the fish dimension I adhered with layers of foam tape.
Now this layout is from the "Citrus Grove" kit. Everything here with the exception of the white cardstock is from the kit. Pattern Papers & Sticker is Tinkering Ink, letter stickers: Pink Paislee; velvet ribbon American Crafts; Flower: Prima; Rubon journaling spot & brad: Creative Imaginations. I wanted to use the rubon more like a diecut so I adhered it to white cardstock and the cut it out, journaled then adhered to the layout. As you are aware....my girl loves PINK!
P.S. the Prima PP in the layout in the previous post is from the citrus grove kit. It has a fabulous pink/orange pattern on the reverse side.
So there you have it some of my creations from the past month. Also if you get the chance to get over to CC you need to check out the gallery for some of the projects for this month's kits. The girls did a great job this month and we had 2 ROCKIN' Guest DT members this month. Sarah was one of them had she has some awesome projects. You go girl!!!
