Scrap That! August Kit Reveal

Its reveal day for Scrap That! Gosh time flies, it feels just days ago we revealed the last kit.

Excited to reveal the Scrap That! August Kit...it is sooo BEAUTIFUL. This one takes the cake! It is packed...wait..I will say the box came brimmed with goodies. Also included was a ribbon kit put together to perfectly match this kit, so many pretty ribbons! The beautiful pps that are featured in this kit are from Girls Paperie "Paper Girl" Collection. Beautiful pps, gorgeous embellies, great technique items(liquid pearls, ink)...many ideas started going thru my little head.

Here is my 1st layout.
I took this photo of Nikki and she just looked so beautiful..thank goodness she never gets tired of me taking pics. I cut the bracket shape out(kept the inside part for another project) and stitched along the shape..lol let me tell you, it was a bit hard trying to stay within the shape...but I did it...well sorta. =] The green fishnet-like and the yellow satin ribbon came in the ribbon kit.


We got a sheet of beautiful vintage cards, I cut this one out and inked it alittle so it wouldn't be so white against the cream cs.


There was a floral pp and couldn't help but fussy cut the flowers out. I added some pretty little Petaloo flowers(included in the kit) to give a sort of dimensional look, the flatness of just the pp flowers bugged me alittle.


As for my second layout...
I was shooting for a more softer, delicate look. I took this photo of Nikki and edited it alittle(adjusted the saturation) and I fell sooo in love with it, I knew it'd be perfect with these pps. Gorgeous Prima blooms and butterfly.
For the matting of the circle, I simply punched a strip of cardstock with my fav scalloped lace border punch, cut out all the scallops and glued it to the back of the circle...one by one, til I was done.


Closeup of the Prima blooms. There's another one of those vintage cards we got, I rolled it up and tied twine around, strategically showing just the 'sweetheart' part.


Here's my 3rd layout done with this kit.
Quite a bit of paper layering on this one along with stitching. The butterflies are from Jenni Bowlin, just slightly altered them with GM.


The flowers were made from fabric in the kit. Here's the tutorial for those...if you'd like to give them a shot. The pink pearl center came from one of the Prima blooms I didn't use.

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT's projects using this kit. You can find the links in the right side bar.
Don't wait!!...get on over to Scrap That! and get your August Kit. It'll be one that sells out FAST!

Thank you for stopping by!
Have a great week!
