August Kit Projects!

Tammy here, sharing the remainder of my August kit projects with you...

For this first layout, I let the patterned paper do most of the work for me by using Fancy Pants "Sensational".  Typically, I don't use these types of patterned papers because I find them difficult to work with but this layout came together really easy and I ended up loving how it turned out. 

Layout number two is almost completely pink...quite unusual for me since I only have boys...but let me tell you, I sure do love scrapping with pink! 

Lisa wasn't kidding when she said the Luxe rub-on's go on like butter.  I'm in love.  The silver hearts are a little difficult to see against the pink background but they are there and they are super fun.

Thanks for letting me share my projects and don't forget to stop by the store and pick up a kit today!

Nikki's August Designs

Hi Scrapbookers :)

I had so much for creating with this months LRS kit. It has sooooooo many beautiful colors in it, it could be used for so many different themes and layouts! Sara is amazing when it comes to picking out just the "RIGHT" embellishments for the LRS kits, they are always full of so many things that coordinate with the kits. Please stop by our gallery to see Lisa and Tammy's designs this month and please post your creations. Also take a look in the LRS store to take a peek at this months add-on kits that go so well with this months kit.


Thanks for looking,

6 photos? No problem!

Happy Saturday!  Lisa here, sharing another August kit layout with you.

Today I'm sharing a layout I created with 6 photos and lots of story to tell...the classic kind of event based scrapbooking that I usually dread because I dislike 2 page layouts.  This particular layout was about my daughter and niece's shared graduation party and I also wanted to include the invitation so I had my work cut out for me!  I ended up printing my photos all horizontally in wallet size and decided to create a little pocket with part of the invitation.  In the pocket are two journaling cards filled with the story and the rest of the invitation.  I love how lining up the wallets at the top left me room at the bottom for a large title and the journaling pocket.

Pop dots helped to lift the title off the page and move the eye through all the pictures.  The final touch for me was actually the quote at the bottom of the page.  "Out of all the moments in my life, the one's I've spent with you are my most favorite."  Because Maddie and Ilana are the same age, they not only started pre-school together (the front of the invitation had that photo of them) but they shared this party and so many other life events.  It was too perfect to not include.  I pretty much created the entire layout just so I could use that title in this way.  Sometimes the paper provides you with direction for the layout...and in this case, that was definitely true!!  Hope I've inspired you to try scrapping an event with many photos and journaling- on one page!!  Be sure to share your layout with us on our Facebook page if you do!

August kit love...

I'm lovin' the August kit featuring the "What a Wonderful Day" line from Fancy Pants.  Not only is it wonderful for girlie layouts but it works great for boy layouts too! 

Today I'm sharing the first of my projects using the kit.  I wanted to give the following layout a vintage feel to match my photo as it was taken in Virginia City, Nevada--a historic mining town that we love to visit. I first started by adding a light coat of Mod Podge to random areas of the white card stock and then added Tim Holtz tissue paper and dried it carefully with my heat gun.  Once dry, I misted and splattered it to give it a nice texture.  The rest is just some fun layering with the Maya Road transparencies, and "Wonderful Day" stickers and ephemera.

I think what I love the most about this particular kit are the cork shapes and cork patterned paper.  It's so much fun! Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to visit the store and pick up a kit today!

Sara's August Kit Project and Stencil Challenge

Hi Sara here, I created this layout with the Little Red Scrapbook August 2013 kit.

I created the heart shape on the background of my layout using the Prima Grunge Net stencil (one of the Aug Kit extras).  I simply cut a heart shape out of the center of some paper towels placed it on the top of the stencil and sprayed some lovely Maya Road gold metallic mist (from a previous LRS kit from many months ago) and created the shimmery heart design on my background for my layout.

Lovin' the August Kit!

Hi all, Lisa here...sharing a layout and a card I created with the August kit!  I totally fell in love with this kit...not just because of the fantastic papers, but most especially, the Luxe rub-ons!  In all honesty, I usually struggle with rub ons, but oh...not these!!  They go on like BUTTER!!  You're going to love them!
Here's my first layout..

The hearts and arrows in gold are the rub ons...I just love them!  Or maybe it's just the love theme of my layout, lol.

And a card...

The perfect all occasion card..."celebrate today" is a fantastic sentiment!
Please come back tomorrow for a look at Nikki's work and a sketch challenge!
