Happy June to you, and a happy birthday to me! I have always loved my birthday month. This time of year is my favorite. I love the warm sun, walks and bike rides outside, swimming, and trips! I think that is why I also love scrapbooking products this time of year, and the Citrus Twist Life Crafted June Cravings kit is spot on! For todays project, it is definitely all about 'cravings.' I started by cutting several of the icon images from the Craving cut files in white cardstock.
I played with papers from the kit and the June Scrapbooking Add-On kit to back the cut files, and then I trimmed the Life Crafted cards or Add-On pattern paper to create a base for each icon. To be honest, I did not know how I would use these, I just loved them and wanted them in individual pockets or some kind of grid. But then I grabbed this Life Crafted paper, and started laying them out. I was loving the collage it created, so I kept going with it. I kept this page to a 6x8.
Once I adhered them all in place, overlapping some of them to create more of that collage feel, I added stamping with the stamp set that comes with the kit (Cravings), and the large Yes stamp set. Then I added stickers from both the Life Crafted and the Add-On kit to fill in.
Most of the stamping I did in a grey color to show contrast with the black inked stamped images.
The coffee cup cut file is the only one I did not need to back with pattern paper or add on a base. Instead, I pierced and stitched around it and foam adhered on top to create dimension to my grid.
The right side I used two Life Crafted cards, one for my journaling with more stamping using the Yes stamp set.
And the other with a photo from one of my walks outside.
Gorgeous kits, stamps and cut files to document about you or your family!
