Hello and Happy Saturday!! Lori here with you today. I know that time is very limited for everyone - especially scrapbookers!!! Today I want to share a time saving tip with you.
Creating with a Scrapbook Kit has save me tons of time. I was not a kit subscriber until a few months ago. I figured I have 3,000 pieces of paper at home - why do I need a kit?? Well, I never had the right shade of blue (or any other color) to match my photo or my pretty new flowers. Buying a kit takes all the guess work out of matching colors and themes for us!!
I recently attended a wedding of a good friend of mine. I wanted soft colors with a pop of color added. The perfect kit to use was Simply Sweet from Frosted Designs:
I started with this beautiful paper:
I took the stencil Live, Love, Laugh and used molding paste with it. Once dry, I spritzed some Dylusions Bubblegum Pink ink spray (from a previous Frosted Designs kit) on it.
I also spritzed a tag and flower - both from the kit.
I tucked the doily sticker behind my photo.
I journaled on this tag and pop-dotted it over the photo.
I used the word "together" as my title. My friend Renee and I went to the wedding together. We have both been through thick and thin with our friend Karyn and wanted to support her together!!
The idea for this layout came very quickly. Waiting for the paste and ink to dry was the longest part!!!
I hope you try a kit - I was hesitant at first but I am totally hooked now!!! For a chance to win a $15 discount off a kit please leave me a comment below telling me if you have ever used a kit (there is no wrong answer) and if the answer is no - what has been your hesitation!!! I will pick a winner on Wednesday, June 11 using Random Number Generator (aka Randy)! Good luck!!
