happy ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY GOSSAMER BLUE!!!
ok so, the August kits were packed with a unique mix of bold colors and luscious embellishments. i created three layouts this month, two or which are 8.5x11. i really love the size and it comes in handy when i want to create something w/ less space. i also used circle elements in both of my designs.
my kayak layout was created using the main kit...LOVE! for the main water element design, i just used a wavy design cut out with the Cameo and machine stitched the edges... i love how the cardstock stands out w/ texture. the circle background paper inspired me to use a variety of circle elements to complete the page.
my son kayaked for the first time while on vacation last summer and he LOVES it. we both do and look forward to owning our own kayaks in the very near future.
for this page, my photos were washed out. i never did change the settings until after the fact when i snapped these photos. so, converting to b&w may them usable. the colors mixed in the Life Pages kits and the Bits & Pieces kit were so beautiful! i loved the rich colors of greys, blues, yellows and browns. i used a mix of elements from all the kits including printables.
my last layout uses a mix of goodies from all the kits & i just love love love the exclusive papers. i adore the pictures of my kids with their friend Ace, being silly i the back seat while on our way to pick up frozen yogurt. they cracked me up. i designed around the text background, which i created and cut out using the Cameo.
August kits, they are all scrumptious!!!! and check out the design teams scrapbook gallery & life pages gallery, their amazing!!!!!
