Kits & Pieces Projects for March

2.26.2008

For this month I got to work with the Spring Bouquet kit and instantly fell in love! The patterned papers were from K & Co.'s Urban Rhapsody line, included as embellishments were buttons, tulle, rubs from 7gypsies, giant brads, some Bazzill In Stitches (flowers) and more! Stop on over and check the complete kits out yourself here!



Decorative Banner, Supplies from the kit: Dreamstreet chipboard squares (part of a kit expansion), K & Co. pp, tulle. Misc. supplies: paint, chipboard letters



I got to play with both a $3 and a $7 expansion this month and ended up with the full package of Dreamstreet Chipboard squares. Instead of using them for an album, I decided to make a fun, whimsical banner for my daughter's bedroom. I used pp from the Spring Bouquet kit, as well as the tulle (which I cut it in half, length-wise to make it long enough for the banner) and created loops on each end so that I could hang it easily. I adhered the pp to the squares using Mod Podge and then used some acrylic paint around the edges for a more finished look. I painted and used chipboard letters from my own stash for my daughter's name.









You, Supplies used from the kit: K & Co. pp, embroidery floss, Doodlebug letter stickers. Supplies used from an expansion: K & Co. stickers, Basic Grey 6 x 6 paper pack

This I did for the first challenge from the book titled, We Dare You. The challenge was to create a layout with the theme of "positive self talk" and I thought that putting that crown on my head was fitting, though I did feel a bit silly doing so! =) A good self affirming page for those days when I need it!




and at such an early age, Supplies used from kit: Bazzill In Stitches, K & Co. pp, jumbo brads, Bazzill cardstock and Maya Road chipboard frame



family, Supplies used from kit: K & Co. pp, embroidery floss, Maya Road chipboard frame and button. Supplies from expansion: K & Co. sticker (butterfly)
