September Kit

Pick up yours today at the Paper Niche,
along with so many goodies, I can't even explain! This adorable everything paper store is jam packed with loads of delicious embellies and gorgeous papers!

Pick up some inspiration here and here and here.
As always, my sister, Carola has beautiful photographs and scrapbook pages to oh and ahh over.

Here's my take on the Sept. Kit. I was SOOOO easy to work with and SOOOO fun!
I added some masking tape for my matting and some hints of white paint using the top of the glue stick as a stamp.

I used the left over piece of the bar code strip to add a small piece of text.

Here's the final piece! I love the two opposites here - hard and soft baby. And it was only a matter of minutes between the photos. He is TOO much!... to love!

Quite simply sprayed one house with glimmer mist to accent it among the others.

For the flowers, I took the white cray paper and bunched them up and sprayed them with the glimmer mist. Then, I molded them into the flowers and set to dry. Meanwhile I sprayed another color of glimmer mist and moved the page around to create the bleeding effect. Journaling reads: Home is never too far...

I went crazy with the distressing on this one. A tip for my sister, use baby wipes along the edges, then distress. Awesome!

There she is with my sweetheart of a nephew.
Thanks for looking and I appreciate all your lovely comments!
