July Kit

Sarah's Cards July kit is starting to hit the mats now so I thought I would show you what I created, the kit was full of Pebbles Happy Go Lucky papers and some gorgeous embellishments.
I wanted to do something a bit different from my usual style and this was the result! I took the fabric flowers apart and used them as photo mats. To create the circles of pink paint I used a rubber on the end of a pencil to stamp the paint over the page.



Another page about turning 40! I was left a comment on here about how 30-10 sounded much better than 40 and I had to agree and used that as my inspiration for the page. I added a line of alphabet stickers to some cardstock and then cut them out adding them to the bottom of the photo.




I did lots of paper pleating on this page to create the border around the circle, if you didn't want to pleat the paper you could just cut the punched border strip into small sections and then add them around the circle.



We are off on holiday soon for two weeks so my blog will be a bit neglected (not that I post that often anyway!!) we don't have internet access where we are going so will be totally out of contact with the scrapping world! I'm not too bothered but poor Emily will feel like she has lost a limb without the internet and not being able to send 100's of texts a day to her friends and boyfriend! lol.
I have been busy scrapping over the last week but I can't share any of it yet, but I can tell you the kit I am working with is simply stunning!!!! Watch this space.
