Scrap Shotz September Kit Featuring PinkFresh Indigo Hills! Part ll

Hello Everyone! Lorraine here with my reveal of the Scrapshotz September kit featuring the fabulous PinkFresh Indigo Hills. Rosie did such a great job with it! I am always amazed at how differently we use these kits.

Here is the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine Sketchy Challenge sketch that we used:
And here is my take on it:
I fussy cut the geometric shapes from a sheet of patterned paper to create the layers behind the photo. The edges were inked with distress inks. I used pop dots behind the outside edges of each of the 3 elements to give them dimension. I also popped up the subtitle phrase - what a great addition to almost any page.

Here is another layout of my sweet granddaughter.  I love the "days of the week" washi tape that I used on both of these pages.
I used the washi on this layout as well, adding a day of the week to each of the monochrome elements on the side of the page. A bright photo really pops on this soft colored patterned paper. I used the alpha stickers that came with the kit, but I felt they didn't have enough contrast to the light background, so I added a black ink drop shadow with a pen to the letters. The chipboard hearts add just the right mood as embellishments.
This 2 page layout is bright and fun - appropriate for the playground photos. I had so many photos that were too-cute-not-to scrap that a 2 pager was totally necessary. This girl has personality to spare! the circles on the patterned paper strips give the layout motion and the 3 circle elements - 2 die cuts and a wooden paper clip - help keep it balanced.
This layout of my grandson's science project was simple to create. The borders of half sphere's on the patterned paper are bright and interesting design elements, drawing your eye to the center of the page. The die cut quotes are perfect accents. This kit's versatility really made it easy to use. The Pinkfresh - Indigo Hills line contains everything from soft feminine feeling paper to bolder, vibrant patterns that gives you so many options.
A really fun addition to the kit was this gold embossed vellum. Here I used it as a layer on top of a cardstock base.
This vellum was also used as a layer, but over a distress inked card base, so the varied colors could show through. A simple card given an interesting feature!
This card used a scrap of patterned paper from the 2 page layout and a die cut quote from the Indigo Hills line. The beautiful, sparkly jewels are self adhesive and add a lovely bit of glam.

I used scraps of patterned paper for this card, using the B side, a bit of ribbon and some sequins. I love to have all occasion or everyday cards in my stash to send to friends and family.

This card used some of the twine included in the kit, as well as scraps of the geometric patterned paper, and a wooden paper clip. This one would make a great masculine card. It's bold and "un-frilly," if that's a word!

Thanks for looking through my reveal. I love to play with these kits and see what I can build from the products included. Hope I've inspired you a bit!
