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.
