November's kit is full of bold, bright colours - just up my street, so I was looking forward to having a play with it! Today I'm going to share with you the first layout I created.
I'm a great believer in getting the most out of materials, so both the natural cardstock, and the Crate Paper Stitch paper have been gutted - this gives me extra pieces to play with! (In fact the yellow checked paper is the centre of a whole piece in itself, as I knew I wanted to use the reverse side as a base to another layout!) The middle section of the Crate Paper was used to create the punched edge down the right hand side and the centre of the cardstock provided a mat for the photo.
You can also see how I used two strips of the burlap pattern, rather than a whole piece - again this gives me plenty left over for another project!
The butterflies were punched from some of the co-ordinating cardstock
pack that we have available, and to make them more delicate I punched an
edge with this punch from the October Afternoon paper and used little
sections to create inner wings! I added a small amount of thread from
my own stash to finish them off.
November's kit is here - we hope to have some more available soon!
And, onto the winner of our little giveaway - my husband chose a number at random, and that was number 3! So congratulations to Penny - email me your address at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can get your prize out to you!
