Anna's August Kit Reveal

I can't believe it's August already!! My kiddos are savoring their last few weeks of summer before heading back to school. The August Kit is packed FULL of goodies to help scrap those fun summer memories. I am a sucker for polkadots & all things vintage. I fell in love with the papers & vintage cards IMMEDIATELY!! And I love the ribbon add-on option for this kit too! (I can never get enough cool ribbon & trim)

The red, white, & blue papers were perfect for this July 4th layout. I sewed just inside the large circle & inked all the edges. There were so many buttons included in the kit & I knew I had to do something fun with them, so I made a mini-garland - easy & super cute!! And on vintage-style layouts, I love to whip out my sandpaper & rough up the edges of the photos.

My kids love to play hide-n-seek. They finally figured out this summer that we have an abundance of good hiding places in our house & can play for hours at a time. I caught my little boy hiding in his favorite spot - under my sewing machine table! It's right next to our back door & when he thinks he's safe, Noah will lean over my box full of material & take a peek out the window. Too cute!! I had too much fun making this layout :D The die cut shapes are perfect for layering & stitching on. And I am loving the ghost clocks & vintage cards. They add just the perfect punch! I had lots of buttons leftover from the previous layout, so I add some more to this one (& I still have a TON left!!). I cut out some of the flowers & randomly added them to the layout & my journaling card. So fun!! And my favorite part is the quote. Henry David Thoreau has great quotes, so I put one right on top of the photo using Photoshop. Easy peasy!!

The August kit has such a sweet, vintage feel to it so I decided to keep with that theme when making this card. I inked the edges of everything, stitched a little, & added some buttons & lace/trim. I used the postage-shaped die cut for some background paper & its pattern echoes the blue/green patterned paper on top!

Heather did an AWSOME job putting this kit together & I had a ball working with it. So grab your own kit & let's see what you make with it!!
