live it ~ love it ~ scrap it
There are no birthdays today
I really let my girly out with my last 2 projects working with the May Kit! One of my favorite papers from this wonderful kit was the vellum paper with the stitched butterflies by American Crafts "My Girl" collection, which I used on both projects. In this first one, I scrapped this fabulous photo of my friend Jenna's beautiful daughter, on her 2nd birthday. Doesn't she have the most beautiful blue eyes?
I started by fussy cutting the border from the yellow "Spread Sunshine" paper by Simple Stories "Vintage Bliss" collection. I used the other side behind the photo, and to cut out some of the flowers. For the background I used Gumball by Lily Bee "Sweet Shoppe" collection which you can buy in the extras. Here's a closer look at the vellum butterfly paper!
I used inks along the bottom of the quote and to highlight her age on the bingo card. I used the yellow sheer ribbon, which comes in the kit, behind the Spread Sunshine sticker, which I added an eyelet to, tying some yarn from my own stash through it.

I'm sad to say this is my last reveal with the May kit and its extras, but I'm happy that I still have plenty of leftovers to create at least a couple more projects. That's what's so great about the BOAF kits - they are chock full of goodies to create a multitude of projects!
So here is another two-pager I created with this awesome kit. I am still playing catchup with Project 12 and of course the May kit was perfect for scrapping last May's Project 12 layout! For the exposed chevron paper sections, all I did was tear away from the green cardstock background and adhere the chevron paper behind the cardstock. Then I reinforced the back of the chevron paper with some scrap cardstock and Scotch tape.
My final layout features some "oldie but goodie" photos that have just been sitting in my "to scrap" pile, waiting for the perfect supplies to go with them. Well, the May kit made me dust them off and scrap them! I really played with layers and all the different materials - regular paper, stickers, chipboard, washi paper, etc. - in the kit.Continue
Hello! I'm back today with my 2nd reveal with the May kit. I am so excited about the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss Collection, it just makes scrapping my simple life pictures so...well, simple!
When I saw the butterflies, I knew I wanted to create a layout documenting the drama with my daughter's earrings...little did I know the drama would develop even more before I could finish the layout. Just 4 1/2 months ago, she pierced her ears, about a month ago we finally upgraded from the piercing studs to butterfly earrings and then now she has decided to let the holes close. This story is more than I wanted visible on the layout so I created a hidden journaling tag behind the photo.
I used an older PageMaps sketch for this layout.…Continue
