And I will bury my soul in a scrapbook, with the photographs there and the moths.

Scrap That!'s May Kit Reveal!

Here is Scrap That!'s! very first kit reveal! This is May's "Blue Velvet" kit and it is full of browns and beautiful blues. The featured papers in it are from the Glitz "Vintage Love" Collection. The kit came with gorgeous Prima flowers and leaves. I had so much fun making these layouts and here I am sharing them with you!

The above layout is of my daughter on Easter. My husband was telling her something silly and made her smile her beautiful smile and to top it off the wind was blowing in her hair making for such a great photo op! Loved working with these papers. They already looked distress which made them so pretty. They were perfect for my series of sepia photos.

Here are the pretty Calcutta flowers and leaves, I inked the edges of the leaves brown to compliment the rest of the layout. Also beautiful Prima bling that never fails!

The kit came with such a pretty clear stamp from Glitz, I stamped it on cardstock and cut it out, also using a personal stamp to put a cute little saying in the center.

I altered the Maya Road envelope with the Walnut Ink Antiquing Solution and finished it off with a cute little bling center. I also sprayed the lace with some of the solution to make it darker. That stuff is neat for altering and antiquing!

Second layout is of my wonderful husband Brandon. He had built a "fort" out of motorcycle tires in the backyard for our son to play in, and I had the camera in hand(surprise surprise) and I rounded the corner and snapped a quick shot and I fell in love with the photo, he looks so handsome. Lots of distressing and inking on this one.

I masked the gears on some of the papers and simply cut them out and adhered them to my page to give alittle more dimension. I added a few Weathered Wood distress stickles that came in the kit to the cut out gears, perfect touch! And I couldn't help myself but to bring out one of my TH key holes, because this man is my love and he truly holds the key to my heart. {I know how cheesy! But it's true!!}

Third layout is, as it is says in the title of my studly little man. This photo was also from this last Easter. He was reaching to ring the doorbell at Grandma's house, he gets so excited when we go there.

Here is the gorgeous Zazi flower from the kit! Yes! Yes! I used flowers on a boy layout! I realize what I did! But the fact that they are blue saved me! Right?!

Lastly, I had all these little scrap pieces from the papers in the kit and I thought I can do something with these! I got a 8x8 fabric canvas square from my LSS and cut my scraps into squares the same size, then 2 strips going across and down the middle and glued them to the canvas with my hot glue gun(my best buddy by the way). I got a wonderful quote online and used it in the center. And of course, the inevitable, I jam packed the corner with Prima goodies. Note: All the flowers and embellies are from my personal stash. I just wanted to show you what you could with your scraps! Because we all have those! ;)

Scrap That! will launch this kit May 1st. So be sure to get on their subscription list! Here's a link to the FAQs about the kit/shipping/costs etc.
Hope you enjoyed these layouts!
Have a GREAT week!
