It's really summer now and what better to record those happy summer memories than a wonderfully sunny, bright kit from Scrapabilly. The August kit is full of October Afternoon Summertime collection papers and has everything you need to capture the long, hot days of this time of year.
Let's take a look at it first...
There are a grand total of 9 papers as well as a sheet of mini labels and some enamel dots from the Summertime collection. A pack of October Afternoon alphas - in two sizes which were so useful - Simple Stories frames and clips, kraft envelopes and translucent journalling cards from Maya Road, brads from WRMK, some hessian ribbon, a sheet of corrugated cardstock as well as a sheet of foam, a selection of cardstock and of course, my favourite, a Scrapabilly exclusive flair. I know I say this every month, but man, this month was a full kit! Saying that, I did add in a sheet of the matching collection puffy stickers and another full sheet of enamel dots. They were a lot of fun to use!
You can get the kit here and all the collection items here. I think I'll be scooping up at least one more of the sunburst papers!
I created 5 layouts and four cards and would like to share three layouts today. I hope you'll come back at the weekend for the rest :-)
First up, I think this might be my favourite layout of the kit. I love the photo so much and really needed to find a way to use it. I was already at the end of the kit and used up a bunch of scraps to layer up behind the photo and just kept adding little bits and pieces until I felt like there was enough on there! The light string paper was so adorable that I just had to keep cutting out the chains!
I added some stitching here and there and need to remember to leave out the machine as a reminder because I love the extra something it adds.
Next up I really wanted to make a fun, bright, silly page about our London phonebook photos! It was Kathy's first time to the UK so I made sure we got giggly with the red icons and I love how they turned out. The softer toned b-sides in the collection really helped those über-bright photos to shine!
I'm not really sure if you can see but ink splats just had to be red, white and blue! Subtle but there!
This is the paper I need to get again. I adore it. And there was no way I was going to cut into it so I had to come up with a design and subject that supported all that bright sunshine. I fussy cut out the clouds and just made a small cluster to back the photo. I die cut the polaroid frame out of the foam paper. There is some nice dimension on this layout even though it looks relatively flat.
Such a great kit to use and I love how bright and happy the results are.
There's a whole gallery to check out with the Design Team creations over at Scrapabilly so why not take a look. And don't forget you can pick up your own kit there too.
