Love Scrappin' May Kit

The newsletter is out, Suzie has been busy and the May kits are now available at Love Scrappin'.

I used my kit to create these:

A Magnet
I took the Pink Paislee 'Cupcake Cutie' paper, stuck a large promo magnet on the back of the paper, where the cupcake was, machine stitched around the cupcake, yes the sewing machine copes with stitching a magnet, and then cut around the outside of the stitching, cutting off the excess paper and magnet. I then used glue, dimensional magic, over parts of the cupcake and then added some glitter, pouring off the excess glitter, to highlight the cupcake and add dimension. You could hand stitch instead of machine and without the magnet it would make a great embellishment.

This 12x12
I took the Scenic Route paper and using my craft knife, cut around the 2nd tree to allow my photo to slide in behind. I then added my journaling around the first tree and the date of the photo to the branch in the second tree. Added a squirt of Suede Glimmer Mist, my go-to glimmer mist bottle lol and then added the title.

This 12x12

I used the Basic Grey sticker, firstly by sticking it to the page, spraying over it with Glimmer Mist and doodling in the circles. I then carefully lifted the sticker off, it did tear in parts, then I added the sticker to my page. I used my DYMO for the journal strips and added a doodled scallop strip, which I made from the Pink Paislee 'Bell Bottom' paper.
Another 12x12

For this page I used the Pink Paislee die cut paper, painted some Making Memories 'Lagoon' paint over the area where the photo would be and then added the photo and title. Then I added the Basic Grey sticker and journaling. I then used the embroidery floss to stitch around it all the frame the photo.

And another 12x12

For this page I again used the Basic Grey stickers as a mask, but this time I used them sticky side up so they were not stuck to the page. I started by cutting out a scrap piece of paper 4x6 the same size as the photo I was using. I placed this where I wanted the photo to go and added the stickers where I wanted then to go also. Then I sprayed over them all with Glimmer mist. Once it was dry I lifted off the stickers and scrap paper and added the photo where the space had been created. I then took some of the flowers and stamped on them. I took all the flowers and arranged them in the corner, sticking them down then. I then stuck the buttons onto the flowers. You could of course use the floss to add the buttons. I finished off the page with some of the Basic Grey stickers and title.
and finally I created a 8.5x11 page which I hope to frame and hang.

I took the Pink Paislee 'Bell Bottom' paper and cut it to 8.5.11 and cut the 'Cupcake Cutie' page to approx 7.5x10, so there was about an inch or 2 of the 'Bell Bottom' piece showing through. I distressed this piece of paper before I stitched the papers together with the sewing machine. I then took the vintage sheet music and stitched this on, only stitching 3 sides, so the title could be seen. I then ripped off the excess paper, added the photo and the DYMO journal strips. I also tore into some of the sheet music to give dimension and let the 'Cupcake Cutie' paper show through.

These kits are very limited, only $12 and available here :)
