Hello My Girl

It has been awhile since I played along with an Issue on the Paper Issues blog, and this one was worth the wait.  As you know I love kits, and this month I was happy to be included on this Issue as we have teamed up with Scrapbook Circle, using their March Main kit, March Printable, and cut files.

That acrylic Hello is my absolute favourite item in the kit, I based my entire design around that, and that super cute & whimsical background paper.

Just look at the detail on that patterned paper, it truly does look like I stamped all those details.  You should know me well enough by now to know how ludicrous it would be to give that idea more than a nano second of thought. That "enjoy today" is one of the  cut files from the kit.  I added a stitched circle to me design as I felt it helped to ground my design with so much going on, on the page.  The Janome  sewing machine that I won from Scrapbook and Cards Today last year had no trouble stitching right through the Pinkfresh wood veneer piece.

That great little kraft bag was part of the kit, and I added a kraft tag from my stash, on which to record my journaling about this photo.  It was a special little moment shared between Théa and I as she was waiting for her Tap Small Group session to being at Dance Competition a couple of years ago.  The cork pieces were another favourite from the kit.

Here is the March Main Kit in it's entirety.  So many great coordinating papers and embellishments, and it could be yours.

Simply link up to our Prints Charming's Beautiful Papers here on the Paper Issues Blog. As always, there are plenty of prompts to use to get the mojo going.  Your projects do not have to be new, and you may link up as many times as you would like.  One lucky winner will be randomly selected to receive this great kit.

And if you're in the mood for new scrappy goodies, there is much to be had in the Paper Issues store.  Did you notice that the new Fancy Pants collections are now available?  And then there's this super cute Kelly Purkey stamp, that is screaming for me to break open and get using.  No matter what you end up picking up, be sure to use my code to save 20% off everything in your cart.

Thanks for stopping by today friends! Pin It
