Hi friends! Another quick stop to share a page using the October kits. This is probably my favourite this month and it was completely inspired by one of the 6x6 papers in this month's Pocket Life kit.
I've used a little piece of the paper in question down the bottom ;) I love that pattern paper!! (It's from Maggie Holmes' "Gather" collection and the paper is called "Details"). Ironically though the 6x6 scaled version was a little smaller than I wanted so I recreated my own version using pinkish tones (to tie in with those gorgeous gold foil/pink thickers!).
My pieces are around 1/4" x 1.5" and I just cut them using scissor and then stitched across a couple times. Super easy to recreate.
How pretty are those thickers from the Main kit?! I wish I could photograph the gold better so you could see just how pretty they really are! And the flair from Main kit is just a perfect match to the colours of the page.
And that's it for today! Hope your weekend is a fantastic one. Weather has turned a little cooler today (after a few days of gorgeous sunshine!) so we're hanging about inside and might sit down to watch a movie shortly (with popcorn of course!).
Thanks for taking the time to stop by, take care! Em xoxp
Another quick post to share my next layout using the October kits. I have a soft spot for this page, mainly because.......I STAMPED!! Every time I use a stamp on a layout I see it as some kind of victory. Not sure why hehe, but I do.
This ended up being one of the quicker pages I put together this month (still way longer than most people, but quicker for me...). I love that paper from Maggie Holmes in this months Paper Add-on, it was just begging to be cut apart! I had planned on putting photo's inside the frames but changed my mind mid-layout. As usual ;)
When stamping I just used some washi tape around the edges so the words wouldn't bleed outside the lines (stamped then when I was done I just peeled it off and I was left with neat edges!).
I love the little mini-tassels in the Main kit. They're so cute and the perfect size for little pages!
And that's it for now!
Have to keep this short - I'm trying to finish this ruffled streamer photoshoot background thing for a friend - been sewing like a crazy person all day and still not finished! I think I could get away with another dozen or so pieces and maybe I can call it done....maybe ;)
Hope your week has been fantastic so far (only 2 more work days for me, wohoo!). Thanks so much for stopping by. Take care, Em xo
Hi friends! Just popping by quickly to share my first layout using the CTK October kits!! I meant to log on over the long weekend and get all my posts scheduled but I truly lost track of time. 3 days seem to go faster than the usual 2.
Probably didn't help that I stayed up watching The Newsroom until 4am one morning... So annoying when you're flicking through the stations for something to watch and find a new show, then you get suckered into watching it for.....over 6 hours hours straight. Ha!
Anyways, enough babble - here's the first page I created using a little from the Grace, Main, Pocket Life and Embellishment kits.
I've got a thing for B&W photo's at the moment; I know I almost always have atleast one layout every month with a B&W photo but this month I'm really leaning towards the photo's being B&W so the colours on my page pop more. Kinda crazy I know.
I love all the Illustrated Faith die-cuts included in the Grace Box this month. Those flowers die-cuts are just the prettiest, I need more of them! (And I totally searched the web trying to find more I could digitally print/cut myself, because I'm obsessed with them - unfortunately I had no luck lol).
Black, white and gold with pops of bright colours - you seriously cannot go wrong with that combo. Always makes your pages look awesome :)
And that's it for now! I'll try to swing back in a few days to share the next page!
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by. Hope the start to your weekend is a great one!!
Take care, Em xo
It's almost time to reveal the October kits, wohoo! So I figured I should swing by and share a couple sneaks ;)
Here's a quick snap of them all because I love bundling it all together then looking at it in my tray (I'm weird I know lol).
You can see I stamped right?! Doesn't happen to often so just making sure you notice, lol.
Be sure to swing by and grab your kits! Pre-sale is 10pm PST.
PLUS the Christmas kits go on sale as well, and ooohhmmmmyyygosh you do not want to miss those. Here's a sneaky peek of a 3 of the kits plus the paper (there are actually 4 mini kits!! how awesome is that?!):
I have to admit that having them in the house makes me want to get out all the Christmas decorations. In October. Maybe a little early? Ha!
Can't wait to see what you pick up this month. Thanks for stopping by!!
Take care, Em xo
