Happy dayyyyys! August kits are finally revealed, wohoo! (if you are a non-subscriber the link wont show kits until 10pm pst, not long now though!) I know I mentioned earlier I was a little slow to get started with these but seriously, once I got going, I couldn't stop! I've managed 6 completed layouts so far and still a few in progress (plus some PL and planner pages!). The kits are jam-packed with so much goodies this month.
One of the things I like to do when I've finished a few layouts is lie them down all together to see how they play out and I have to admit, the first thing I notice is the colour! So much happy colour! Love, love, love :)
As I always do - I'll share a couple pages now and the rest a bit later in the week ;)
My first layout using the kits was this one:
I created my own cut file on the silhouette to mimic the pattern paper which comes in the kit. Then I just backed each shape up with a little section of both sides of the paper.
Next up was this - and it was completely inspired by those gold glitter chipboard hearts in the main kit!
All the hearts (non-chipboard) and photo's are just hand-cut with scissors - not one is the same or perfect in shape and that's OK with me!
Once they were all stuck down I just ran the page through the sewing machine for a couple reason; I like the look of it and it helps keep everything in place!
And that's it for now! Would love to hear what you think of the August kits! Did you get anything extra this month?
Thanks so much for stopping by - I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend :)
