February Kits & Pieces Goodies!

2.02.2008

Really enjoyed working with the Tell Me A Story kit from Kits & Pieces this month. It was one of two kits offered for the month of February and it's sweet pastels, florals, bits of cotton lace and the Bazzill In Stitches cardstock were just calling for me to dig out some of Zoey's old baby pictures to work on with this kit! Also offered in this kit was the Bo Bunny Love word album, I chose to make the album for my Grandmother and included a special message to her about how thankful I am that she is in my life and just basicly letting her know how much it is that I love her.



Bo Bunny Love Album, for this I adhered patterned papers to each letter page with Mod Podge and then I painted around the borders of each page with some acrylic paint. For the front page (letter L) I cut some of the scalloped Bazzill cardstock for the white strip on the side and adhered some flowers (included in one of the kit expansions) and added some buttons for the center of the flowers.



For the letter O I just adhered pp, I also added some of the KI lace paper (again with Mod Podge) for an added bit of interest. (the KI paper lace was a part of the January kit offered at Kits & Pieces).



As for the letter V, in addition to the pp, I added some more of the Bazzill scalloped paper (in a strip) and some more florals, buttons and simply tied a bit of ribbon around the letter.



Lastly, for the letter E, I covered the entire album page with the KI lace paper, wrote my journaling on a contrasting paper and used my corner rounder punch to finish the edges. I added my letter stickers to show the date of my journaling.
