Kit Projects!

I created all three of these projects using an amazing kit that I got at Coordinates Collections called Blue Skies. Unfortunately, Coordinates Collections is closing down, but I still wanted to share my projects with you and tell you how much I loved using this kit!!

On the first layout, I did some misting, and then really played with the patterned papers in the kit! This was my first time using Echo Park papers. I did enjoy working with them! The Jillibean Soup corrugated shapes and the buttons were really fun to use too! I love that I added a Hollister gift card and a tag. To the right of the photo, you can see a little scalloped edge. That is actually the journaling hidden behind the photo. I didn't hide the journaling to be secretive, I hid it because I liked the way the page looked without it!

On the second page, I used colorful strips on the side to add some personality, and then I added a whole bunch of brads down the other side. Great way to use up some brads! I also detail cut some clouds from an American Crafts sheet of paper, and I used some pop dots to add some dimension to the cluster I added at the top of the page.

I then created a card using up some scraps on my desk. This is another rejected card that I submitted for the Paper Crafts sketches call. I love the way this turned out!

I hope you're having a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
