Kit layout and a winner!

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 vanessa@papermaze.co.uk and we can get your prize out to you!
