GD Elizabeth's August Kit Reveal

I ust loved the vintage/shabby feel of this kit. The mix of blues and reds was perfect too! Lily Bee is such a fun new company and I had a great time playing with their products.

"Happy Birthday" Card

A birthday card in honor of Simply Obsessed 2nd Birthday. The journaling blocks are perfect for cutting up to be used for a message on a card. Used some scraps of one of the papers to piece together a little banner.

"Swing Song" Layout

I loved these pictures I took of my niece on the 4th of July. The sheet music paper that was included in my kit with the "swing song" was a perfect background layer for these pictures.

"1st Haircut" Layout

My three year old daughter finally just had her first haircut. Yes, she didn't have much hair until she was 2! The colors in the photos were a bit distracting, so I converted the pictures to black and white. I saved the clippings of hair that were cut. Instead of taping them into her baby book, I wanted to incorporate them into a layout without having them fall out. I used one of the punch outs as a background and machine sewed a plastic pouch to enclose the hair.

Watch for a technique challenge on how to make this cute pouch, that Elizabeth made, later on this month

Great work Elizabeth!!


Thanks for being SIMPLY OBSESSED!
