I thought it might be fun to see how many layouts I can get out of the Sweater Weather kit I won from Scraptastic and Mercy Tiara. I've been lusting after a membership to one of the several really good scrapping kit clubs there are. And Scraptastic is definitely on the list (I kind of like that there is a choice between two main kits each month). But I simply have to wait until the house is sold and we are moved and settled. Anyway this will be kind of a test for myself to see how far I can go with a kit.
Here we go... Sweater Weather layout #1...
I used a piece of my own white cardstock, some layers of white tissue paper. The stitched banners are from my stash (Basic Grey's 25th and Pine collection), as is the twine. I absolutely love the Studio Tekturek white on white bokah kind of print (Peachy Christmas #08) and the My Mind's Eye woodgrain that came in this kit. So, to make it last a little longer, I just used strips of them, Tore the edges of the white bokah and punched one of the strips of the woodgrain, but left the other a really thin little sliver for the top of the page. The alpha stickers from Bo Bunny are perfect with these papers, but I did also use the red Tiny Type from my stash. The Merry Everything sticker and the red heart are from the sticker sheet that was included (Warm & Cozy from Carta Bella). Although I did punch two of the stars from the woodgrain deer sticker that is on the sheet, since I just don't see myself using that one. The red enamel dots came in the kit, as did the snowman flair badge. A minimal but of journaling and some penned in stitch lines and I called it done.
This was fun! And even though the stickers all kind of scream winter, snow and Christmas... I see lots of other uses for the papers themselves. There's a bit of a red, white and blue thing going on that has me wondering if I have any 4th of July photos filed away.... h-m-m-m
have a scrappy good day all,
