Scrapabilly April kit shares (part 2)

Earlier this week, I shared three layouts I made with this month's Scrapabilly kit featuring all sorts of goodies and based around the Pebbles Happy Days collection. You can find the kit in the Scrapabilly shop here and the gallery with all the DT creations can be found here. It's worth checking out for sure!

Another super easy-peasy to use kit and one that gave me enough inspiration and supplies for a full 5 layouts, two overloaded cards and a handful of scraps.

Here's a reminder of the kit:

And here's layout number 4. When I saw the card about Friday, my thoughts turned immediately to cocktails and the fact that I want to introduce a weekend cocktail hour round here (purely selfish reasons of course!)

A recently captured, and ├╝ber-delicious Cosmopolitan was all I needed to pull this layout together simply. This is, of course, not the first time that the Best Barman in the World's infamous Cosmo has been featured on a layout and no doubt it won't be the last. But as delectable as it is, I think I can get away with it!

I loved the cut apart sheet included in the kit and this one just had my name all over it!

And one last layout that was made after the gallery went live but I was inspired by all those "hello" words covering one of the papers and I decided to fussy-cut some out. Somehow, memories of 1970s Eurovision Song Contests jumped into my head and the "Germany Calling" bit made me giggle. Who would have imagined way back then that an international, virtual meeting would be possible via the internet and attended by nearly 50 people from around the world! Funny indeed.

Now it might seem a little strange to have used this kit to talk about the Scrap Happy Hour where we discussed the Counterfeit Kit Challenge - surely a CKC kit itself would have made more sense? Well, that's not really how I roll round here because the whole layout came together from those fussy-cut elements and scraps of leftover papers. When that happens, I don't over think it and just go with the flow. In fact, I can think of another angle to this story and photo (just the one so it'll be used twice!) which I can use one of my CKC kits for. Double duty!

To finish off, I made this card incorporating all sorts of bits and pieces from the kit and the cut apart elements. I adore making these over the top banners with the loopy twine and loved how this came out. The card-base was included in the kit which gave me the incentive I needed to make someone a rather special birthday card - heading its way to the UK already.

So, to maximise the idea and to use up some more of those scraps and fussy-cuts, I ran off a second card to finish my use of the kit. This one isn't quite as well executed as the first but I think it will make a very fun "Hi" card - already have that special someone in mind :-)

Did you miss my giveaway last month? I think you did! Yes, my bad. I'm such an irregular scrapper that there's not many readers these days but just in case you do read this and get to the bottom here, and pay attention (yes, that's a lot of "just in case"s), then let me repeat it for you.

I appreciate every single reader and commenter here on this - sometimes - neglected blog. Let me know which layout from which 2015 Scrapabilly kit is your favourite and I might (read *will*) pick a commenter to receive a little something in the post from me!

Who doesn't love a giveaway?!?


  1. These are all such lovely layouts Lisa! That cosmo looks so refreshing and I like that you captured the photo in mid-pour. The Friday card and little banners are a perfect match for it.
    I like how you used the leftover circle punch scraps with the enamel dots (I really like the jumbo size ones) on your Germany Calling layout. I laughed at the end of the hour when you all started taking photos to memorialize the moment - how perfect!
    The cards are great too with all those pennants and banners. I think you might be seeing a layout from me soon with a scraplift of the stapled loops of twine.
    You certainly had a lot of fun with your kit!

  2. Such fun touches to both these pages, well done Lisa!

  3. I like the page with US on it, lol :-) That was such fun to do & I hope we were contagiously enthusiastic enough to draw some more willing victims into the CKC pool! (Don't put my name in since I had a heads up, wink-wink)


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time. <3 <3 <3
