I am really excited to be the guest designer for Gossamer Blue this month! With how busy school has been the past year, I've felt out of the scrapbooking loop, and it was great to be able to jump in again. Luckily, I had some time off in August so I was able to create and play with the kits a bit longer than I normally would have. For this page, I used only the main September scrapbook kit. The fun bubble-blowing photo is from my sister's visit back in June. I think I documented her trip in every form - scrapbook layouts, project life, and a minibook!
This patterned paper from Studio Calico's Brighton Pier line had lovely colors and phrases in long strips. I wanted to incorporate them into the white space of my photo, so I cut several pieces into a banner shape and stitched a line through them. For extra texture and dimension, I folded the ends of the banners upwards.
The light patterned background paper is by the new line from One Little Bird, it was tough to use up all in one go! I machine-stitched circles in the background to go with the "bubble" theme, and placed gold stickers randomly around. There are a lot of gold elements in the kits this month, and I loved how they look against darker woodgrain. To finish off the page, I added a wood veneer tag to the top and used the kit stamp to add the date. I used the gold pen included in the kit for journaling in the bottom corner.
Throughout the month I'll be posting more of my layouts and Project Life spreads made with the kits. You can check out what the talented design team made with the kits over here for layouts, here for Project Life spreads, and here for cards and other projects. Thanks for stopping by!
