Yesterday was a totally scrappy day using my Paper Poppy Kit Co. prize. I made three more LO's and had so much fun!! I'm sad to say that I am now down to scraps for card making but, April is just around the corner and with April comes a new kit up for sale!! Yay!! :)
Here's my Canadian Geese LO. It was interesting for me to use navy blue. This is a colour that I would never have thought of buying supplies in and yet I love the look. I also love kraft paper so I used a piece from my stash. This also let me stretch my card stock from the kit for other uses. I used some Jenni Bowlin buttons in cream and green brads from my stash. I was also lucky enough to have a piece of green text paper from the same line as the bird paper, so I made some flowers out of this. It was really fun to be able to use some items from my stash along with the kit.
I used this sketch from Julie Bonner's blog.
Here's Gus in this LO. Love this fuzzy little face! :) I used the same punch on my borders as Aphra used on the hidden journaling bag in the kit. Items from my stash are the red JB vintage button, the rub-ons, kraft card stock and small number stickers. I made the circular border by punching one inch circles out of one of the patterned papers.
I used another one of Julie Bonner's sketches.
Here is the last LO. This is me at four! I had so much fun putting the little banner together. I made the journaling card by cutting down a circular JB journaling spot. I then used the parts that I cut off for extra layering. Items from my stash are the kraft card stock, the JB chipboard button and pink brad.
I used Francis's sketch here!! It is the March sketch for the kit company. Fun sketch!! :)
I still have some scraps left and plan on putting together some cards using Aphra's card sketches! I'm like a little kid at Christmas who is sad that it is over. Yeah, that is how I feel about my kit being almost done. LOL I loved how this kit had so many original elements and that I used items that I would not have thought of to buy for myself. I found that the kit also encouraged me to use paper more creatively. I was really trying to get every bit of goodness out of it! I used up every inch of the floss and a large part of the printed paper bag that the kit came in! I still have an awesome paper bag album from the kit. I still have to plan on what to make with this! :)
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!! Today, I plan on actually spending some time with my family! :)
Happy Scrapping!! Jen :)
