Amy Perkins Reveal

Hi... Amy here with the latest reveals using the August Kits...

August kit was so much fun to work with...  I couldn't wait to use the fun colorful pattern paper, and the Basic Grey PB&J die-cut paper and canvas flowers were a big inspiration.

Main Kit: Country Picnic

I loved working with the chevron paper, and cut along the pattern to add more texture to this layout... using the chevron paper made me smile too!  Tabs are making a come-back and so I cut one of the canvas flowers in half to make a unique scalloped tab.

There is a produce stand not far from where we live, and during the fall months they create a huge straw pyramid with a pipe for this kids to slide down.  My kids look forward to playing here every year!  This layout was inspired by a scrap of paper (the arrow like paper at the bottom which was a scrap from the previous layout) and it all came together in less than 30 minutes (I know... FAST right?).  I started to layer some of the already cut pieces of pattern paper, then  two photos ... and just let myself have a bit of fun adding a bunch of embellishments.

I don't typically print pictures in B&W... and need to remember to do this more often, because I love the look!  I took Mandie's trends class at the last crop (which was SO FUN!) and applied the technique she taught for making a chevron pattern to this layout.  I loved that this August kit was so diverse that even the soft colors in the pattern paper and lace could create a baby layout too!

Add-On Kits: Rustic Country & More Stickers - Simple Stories

For this layout I combined the add-on kit and the more stickers - simple stores to create a sporty golf  themed layout.  I love the tiny type alphas that allow for longer and more descriptive titles.

Hi!  Mandie here with my layouts from the August kit.  I loved the colors and patterns in this month's kit.  So preppy and cute!  Go snag one before they sell out!
 Most of my layouts are simple ones.  This is no exception.  I love being able to pull together a layout quickly. (Button is from my stash)

 As soon as I saw the "Baby Bumble Bee" tag from the Basic Grey sheet, I KNEW I needed to use it for a layout about my little guy's first Halloween.  The yellow dot paper was a perfect fit.  (Brads are from my stash & the title was cut on my Silhouette Cameo)

 These are some more old photos of my son (He's 8 now!)  The colors and patterns just seemed summery.  I still had not scrapbooked the photos.  Looking at them makes my heart hurt just a little.  Where did all the time go?!

 Speaking of growing up... My girl!  Yikes!  She is getting big!  I cut the scallops out with my Silhouette and then layered them.  

 I happen to LOVE this layout.  The photo is from my sister's wedding.  (Photo credit: Photos Edge Photography, Kansas City, MO)  I love these Pebbles alpha stickers from the main kit.  They are so cute, and I especially love the "the" sticker!  Adorable!

 I made a little shaker card with a glassine envelope (from last month's kit) and the sequins in this month's kit.  I think it turned out so cute!  
I used some left over paper to make this card.  I just HAD to use the "Sweet stuff" sticker in some way.  How flipping adorable is that?

Rachel Anderson August Layouts

hello everyone! hope you are having a great summer and hopefully staying cool ;)

I am sharing my layouts for the August kits, Country Picnic and Rustic Summer. My pages use items from both the main and add on kits this month. I used some older photos on both pages this month, because the colors in the kits just felt like they went with the pictures. I love when that happens. I don't scrap chronologically or in order, so its nice when a new product reminds me to use some older pics!

We Love This Town

I love the navy chevron basic grey paper! This is a photo of my husband and I from a few years ago (2007, to be precise). We had our engagement photos taken in old town Auburn, and this one is in front of the historic courthouse. Hence the title... we love Auburn. :) The buttons on the side are from my stash. The title was cut on my silhouette, from the backside of the navy chevron paper. The font is Bebas, and the "love" is a cut from the silhouette store.


This is a picture of my niece, Peyton, as a flower girl (from my wedding). The basic grey die cut flowers in the kit were one of my favorite items, and there are a ton of flower shapes in the package --some nice bang for your scrapbooking buck! The sequins in the kit are such a fun item to use. I adhered them with a Martha Stewart glue pen, which is great for adhering little tiny things to your pages. (The stick pin in the bow was just a random one that was sitting on my desk, so its not from the kits).

Thanks for taking a peek!

Randi's August Kit Layout

Country Picnic Kit August 2012

I had so much fun with this kit! I took advice from Mandie's Trends class from last month's kit and made a rosette! All the PB&J paper, die cut flowers and stickers helped this page come to life. When I saw the YOU ROCK sticker I knew this was the product for this picture! I stitched the  squares to give the page a little bit of a homespun feel. Summer time to me is family BBQ's, camping and playing out till the street lights come on. I hope my boys cherish these carefree times. I still have so much more left of this kit to preserve more of our summer fun!
Thanks for checking out my kit reveal! Hope you enjoy your kit! Till we Scrap Again....

My Lil' Rocker

This year at the school carnival the photo booth was the FAV of the day! I loved that each if my boys had fun goofing off and that they did it without me begging them! Added bonus was that I got the silly pictures as souvenirs! Score for Mom!

I used our August main kit to display one of the pictures and can't reveal the layout till Saturday. But these pictures are too cute to keep to myself. I found this guitar paper while purging for the September Consignment Sale, gotta lot of stuff so starting early is a MUST! Anyways, once I discovered this paper the Creative Juices were a-flowing. Thought I'd share what I came up with. Hope you enjoy!

DIY - Thickers

Whether tinsel or glitter... I'm always drawn to that scrapbook supply section and seem to WANT and NEED every color that there is to offer... I think it's how the florescent lights makes them glitter, that get's me ever time!! ;-) 

I was really excited that we included the DIY Thickers in the July Add-On Kit - Going Places giving me the chance to use the tinsel that has been in my scrap-stash for some time now.  I was really surprised at how easy they were to use... and the biggest challenge I had was choosing which color to use!!

Step 1: ... Working on a non-stick surface (I'm using my Bazzill Splat Mat) select your letters and peal off the top layer.  (NOTE:... I found out the hard way... although the packaging is clear.. it is NOT a non-stick surface!)

Step: 2: ... A little sprinkle (This tinsel is going to last a LONG time... a little goes a long way!!)

Step 3:  ... A little tap to make sure the tinsel is sticking to the letters... and you are done!  It's that EASY!!!  

Here is my finished layout!  I can't wait to pull out my glitter and tinsel and continue to create custom letters for my titles.

If you have any questions- just leave a comment and I'd be happy to reply back. - Amy
