There are so many great elements to use in your papercrafting and scrapbooking from the October Kit! I decided to use some of the “home” embellishments in the kit to focus on documenting some areas of our current home that I love. I thought it would be a great way record this house. I kept the photos simplified – only included 6 photos of different areas of our home – and printed them out as 2×2 photos. I then put them in a grid pattern in the middle of my layout, but left some space above them to include the corkboard embellishments with the chipboard piece adhered to it.
I used a piece of the washi tape in the kit (I just LOVE it!) and then I also cut apart one of the sticker frames in the kit to make a striped sticker strip for just a bit of visual interest at the top of my layout. I felt like it was a bit to empty up there! Ha! I simply stapled those and also added one of the star sequins in the kit to the top, too! It’s a super simple way to add some more visual interest to your layout and texture, too!
I did a grouping of elements below the photographs – a couple of sticker labels (both have mistakes on them, but I’m just letting it go, whoops!) and then another star sequin, a heart sticker and the super cool wood veneer arrow! I’m a big fan of grouping elements!
This little house sticker is just the cutest! There are three of these that come in the kit and they are so whimsical and fun, plus they’re puffy stickers so that makes them even more cool! Love ’em!
Yep, you can probably see my mistake in what I wrote! Ha! It should be “we ARE so blessed” and not “we ARES so blessed.” I got carried away, clearly and well, that was the only sticker like that in the kit and I wasn’t going to change it! Ha!
So see, using these monthly kit subscriptions is SO much fun and it really helps simplify the creating process even more because you just take the kit, your photos and your paper (and/or cardstock) and just have at it!
Something cute always turns out in the end because the products coordinate so well together and then you also have leftovers that are great on other projects, too and so your dollar is stretched even further!
For this layout, I knew I wanted to use the lovely acetate letters from the October kit for a large title. After I arranged my title, I added my photo that I layered on top of one of the October journaling cards to the right of the letters.
I placed another journaling card to fill the space near the top left of my title and layered a couple of the adorable puffy house stickers on top of it. I offset the right side next to my photo with another card and used it to house my journaling.
I placed one of the oval cork frames with a puffy house sticker on top and placed a few of the sequin stars here and there to draw the eye around my page. I really love the colors of the embellishments in the October kit and how well they coordinate with my fall photos!
The first project is a layout to remember a walk we made through the wilderness park here in Leipzig (Germany). I used one of the cute journaling cards with the scalloped pattern to go with the photo.
I also used some wooden arrows from the kit and decorated these with two different techniques - heat embossing with gold powder and adding a washi-tape pattern and some golden thread.
The next project is a card. I used the journaling card with the arrows as a base and added four wooden arrows. I used a red marker on one of the arrows to make it stand out. The house is really cute, don't you think?
I hope you like my inspiration. Have a great day, Sandra.
