Every so often a special limited kit is put together for the members at My Scrapbook Nook. This summer the kit features papers from the "Sweet as Cherry Pie" collection by Webster's Pages. The kit was so beautiful and so very popular that it sold out incredibly fast! I'm glad I acted quickly and got one for myself. Also included in the kit is some blue Jenni Bowlin crepe paper ribbon, patriotic bingo cards and chipboard buttons as well as Basic Grey chipboard alphas.
Isn't it pretty? It sure is fun to play with, too. I tend to be intimidated by the beautiful patterns but once I start cutting into it my pages made from Webster's Pages tend to be some of my favorites. There are so many gorgeous prints and so many possibilities for fun cut work.
I had some time, or rather I MADE some time to work on some pages using the kit which was absolutely perfect for my 4th of July pictures.
Here are a couple of layouts I've put together so far using that gorgeous stuff.I posted this picture of my mother-in-law earlier on and knew it would be perfect for using with this kit. I hope she doesn't mind y'all seeing it since she's pretty particular about pictures taken of her. I think it's lovely; she's one of the most patriotic people I know. For this page I cut and glued pieces of lots of different patterned papers, did lots of hand cut work and some machine sewing. Hooray for my machine for cooperating with me for once!!
These are pictures of my girls at the 4th of July parade held in our town. Did I say the kit was perfect for these pics? Absolutely. I mixed and matched lots of pieces of the paper on this one as well, used some American Crafts Thickers (doodled with red pen on the white ones) and added some Stickles glitter glue and some twine. The mat that the picture are on was actually the center of the paper I used for the above layout and then I used some of that Jenni Bowlin crepe paper ribbon on the right edge.
