The kit contains Basic Grey's new paper line "Out of Print." At first glance, this line didn't seem to be my style, but then I realized that I LOVED most of the "b-sides" from the line. And, there was a wonderful STRIPE pattern that seemed to tie everything together perfectly. I think I used that stripe on every single project I completed this month!
Plus, the kit included a set of American Craft fabric Thickers and a 12x12 sheet of Basic Grey alphas with both black and white letters. Three alphas gave me so many possibilities.
I also love that Paper Posies kits come with two sheets of each color of cardstock. I fell in love with the Bazzill Atlantic (blue) cardstock. I used it to create a 2-page layout for Blake's album with photos from a recent photo shoot. One photo of Blake allowed me to continue my title directly on the photo.
Plus, I added some of the October Afternoon rub-ons to the page, too. I made a card, too!The week I received the kit, I had caught the old Vanilla Ice hit from 1991 on the radio and introduced my boys to "Ice, Ice Baby." So...when I saw a photo of them ICING cookies, I instantly had a title in mind!It's a simple page that used scrap strips. I outlined the white alphas with a black pen to make them pop off the page a bit.
I also worked in an Easter layout. Another simple page using only patterned paper, alphas, and rub-ons. It's rare for me to do such a "flat" page, but I really like it.
I have a couple additional projects that I completed with the kit, but since they are both for challenges, I'll share them later.
The kit went live today. Check it out!
