I am so happy to be back here at the Scrap Shotz blog sharing my projects for the fabulous Scrap Shotz September kit featuring the brand new Indigo Hills line by Pinkfresh Studio.
It was difficult to cut any of these papers up, they are so beautiful, so I eased in to it with this first layout.
Here's a close up of the upper left corner:
Up next is this layout showcasing the wonderful gold/vellum paper included with this kit:
I apologize for this less than stellar photo, so hard to see the gold vellum, I die cut the 'butterfly' title with my Cameo machine and then backed it with the same die cut in blue card stock. The white space on this patterned paper makes it easy to find a visually appealing point for any photo layout.
Here's a close up of the title:
and a close up of the journaling area, I always journal by hand, not because I think my handwriting is awesome, because I feel it's faster :).
I've been trying to use my Cameo more so I cut this background and then misted it with Heidi Swapp Color Shine:
Now on to something completely different...a Christmas Card!
This gold patterned vellum paper is so versatile, especially for special occasions such as Christmas!
I die cut the sentiment with a Tim Holtz die from my stash, stapled it to black card stock and then to kit patterned paper. The entire piece is matted on Tim Holtz gold metallic card stock, then backed on grey kit card stock. I've also added a few accents with Nuvo Crystal and Glitter drops but they are hard to see in this picture.
Now back to a layout...we all have created a layout based on this sketch from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine:
Here is my take:
I think this is my favorite layout from this reveal... I cut circles with my old Fiskars circle cutter, stamped with Hero Arts Ombre metallic ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then inked the heart stamped circle with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Squeezed Lemonade, the circle frame stamps with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink and the words stamped circle with Pumice Stone Distress Ink; finally all the circles were dusted with Perfect Pearls powder.
The kit includes a full package of 42 Indigo Hills Die Cuts, a full package of 30 Indigo Hills puffy stickers and a full package of 143 Indigo Hills Puffy Alphas, lots and lots of product for your scrapbooking/crafting needs :).
Now on to a few cards, sorry for the not so good photos coming up, I was inspired to make these cards later in the day and the light was not great for pictures...
I pulled out some dies from my stash, Elizabeth Craft Designs leaf dies, and cut individual leaves to accent the kit die cut and create a lovely any occasion card for a friend.
Here is another card that highlights the ECD leaf die cuts from my stash (you will see why in a moment). The sentiment is stamped with the kit add on stamp and the bling is part of the kit.
Now, here is the card featuring the negative Elizabeth Craft Design leaf images of the 2 previous cards, I even created a shaker portion filled with sequins:
and another close up of the die cut portion (sans sequins ;) )
Now, last but not least...
Beautiful, Magic, Amazing...September
I put my new Polaroid Zink printer to use for this layout, printing out the 3 photos from my iPhone directly to the printer. The varied kit die cuts and large number of kit alphas made it quick to create a title for this memory. Here is a close up of the title:
and a close up look of the lower right corner:
