Burlap & Buttercups Kit *reveal*

Happy Sunday everyone! Gosh where did the weekend go?! It seems like Friday will never get here and when it does Saturday and Sunday seem to ZOOM right by. Monday again? lol! It was a very productive weekend here - lots of nesting going on ;) 

It's time to reveal the layouts I created for Burlap and Buttercups! I wanted to thank Rachel once again for inviting me to be a guest designer this month. It was so much fun and Rachel is *so* sweet!  

Burlap and Buttercups Monthly Scrapbooking Kit Club  

The March kit was so fun to play with! Here is what I've been working on the past two weeks: So excited to finally share it, hehe!

Catching Some Rays:

I *love* that big sun graphic on the American Crafts paper - but was stumped for a while on how to use it. I kept it simple and added a few favorite pics of Jax laying in his favorite room: our sunroom.  I added some stickle detail to the sun to really make it shine:


Those alpahs are from the Indie Bloom sticker sheet that comes in the kit. Loved having coordinating titles at my fingertips :) I dressed up my photo with twine and painting a few pieces of Maya Road chipboard (included in the add on kit). The canvas sticker "scatter sunshine" as also from American Crafts.


Celebrating Home:

I usually love all things Basic Grey, but didn't really care for the Indie Bloom line. However, when I saw it in the kit I was drawn to it right away! I used the bold patterns on this 2 page layout:


There are lots of great embellies in this kit - including this My Minds Eye die cut, which I attached with an Indie Bloom fabric brad.


Rachel included these fun American Crafts thickers, in addition to the Indie Bloom alpha stickersheet. They work great together!

 Crazy Daisy:
(inspired by the sketch at Artful Delight)

My favorite Indie Bloom paper was this diamond pattern - and I knew I wanted to use it by itself. This is our niece Isabella all ready to go to a slumber party. I used the Studio Calico yellow ledger paper for my journaling spots.

I lined the second one with the blue ribbon included in the kit. I love how it turned out!


I popped up the "Crazy Daisy" diecut sticker from the Indie Bloom embellishment sheet for added dimension.


Man's Best Friend: 

Last but not least, my "boys".. hubby and puppy are inseparable! The "best friend" cardstock sticker worked great for this title. That woodgrain paper from October Afternoon deserved a page of it's own, dontcha think ;)

I used the white floss in the kit to stitch 3 circles off my page to mimic my puppy's cone in the photo lol. He had to have surgery but is all better now :) More layouts coming of that adventure!


I hope you've enjoyed the layouts I created as much as I did working on them :) You *must* check out Burlaps and Buttercups for the design team's inspiration. 

March's kit is *sold out* but please consider pre-ordering an April kit! You will *love* it! I created these 4 layouts and still have lots left over for a few more layouts or several cards. It's an awesome deal on great product!

I'm off to enjoy what's left of this Sunday.. have a great week!

You totally rocked your GDT spot! Your layouts were absolutely adorable. I have to say, my favorite was the one with your pug. My pug passed away in August and I miss her so much! Your page made me smile.
