Hi everyone! Today is the first day of August! I do not know about you, but summer for me is over. My kids will start school next week! Yes, I am ready for it, too!
As is my habitual action except for July, the beginning of the month usually brings one DT project using The Paper Trail kit of the month. However, since Karen decided to just go back and open stock purchases instead of the kits, each DT member will be showcasing a few different products from the store on the first of each month.
I want you to visit Trail Makers challenge blog. This is the beginning of a new term for returning member (including me), and there are some new talented members with new styles too!
For August, Karen sent me a sample of the beautiful Basic Grey, "Out of Print" collection and here is what I did with it:
Basic Grey - Out of Print - Daily News
Basic Grey - Out of Print - Special Feature
Basic grey - Out of Print - Tribune
Basic grey - Out of Print - Pop Layered Stickers
Basic grey - Out of Print - Alphabet Stickers
Unhinged Creative - Clear
Love the feel of this line - the newspaper prints mixed with the sherbet pink, yellow and green colors. The photos shows my mom, my two sisters and me at my parents back yard. We were together celebrating mother's day.
The clear buttons were attached to the paper with black /white twine.
Love the beautiful layered butterflies and flowers stickers.
The alphabet letter stickers are the perfect size. Not too big or too small.
The gorgeous butterfly with its pre-made layers. I added some clear rhinestones to add more interest.
The Basic Grey "Out of Print" collection can be found at The Paper Trail.
This coming Sunday will be the first challenge for August - so check back at Trail Makers challenge blog that day.
In addition, this layout meets the requirements for the "Bingo" challenge at The Paper Variety challenge blog. 1) Multi-photo - I have two photos, 2) Journaling strips - I have two stickers strips where I did journaling 3) stitching - the clear buttons were stitched with needle and twine to avoid using adhesive. I am very happy to participate at The Paper Variety as a follower. So cool!
Have a wonderful day!
