I finally had a chance to cut into my May Paper Poppy kit! I started out using some of the Jillibean Papers in it because the colours went so well with this photo of my friend's little fellow. He is showing me his new play center that was in the midst of assembly. It was his birthday gift for his second birthday from his entire family.
I used the May sketch designed by Julie Bonner. My LO is very much inspired by Julie's take. I so love her style! I was really excited that she was the guest designer this month.
It was great to finally get to use one of the Maya Road kraft envelopes. The green alphas are from the April add-on kit. I cut the banner out of the brown patterned paper. It was easy to bend it into a wavy banner. I noticed that Jana Eubank places gems in between the triangles so I did the same with brads. The Prima flower was also inspired by Jana. She will take a store bought flower and add her own touch to make it original. I removed the flower center and made my own center by punching a 1 inch circle and using one of the button stickers. I love the look of text paper so I couldn't resist using it for my background. This decision made me lose out on using the yummy green pattern on the opposite side. Lucky for me, I found a different piece of green Jillibean in my stash.
Well, I still have lots of the kit left so I'll be back soon to share my next LO made with it.
Happy Scrapping!! Jen :)
