I got to scrap

and with the September kit no less. This kit worked perfectly for my kids back to school photos. I can't wait to work with the kit some more.

I wanted to share another LO using the September kit, but this one is done by Tami (momawhite99) I love how she cut out the number paper and did the clustering around the big flower! Her LO got picked as LOTW over on the message board. Leave her some lovin'!

Fabulous work girl!

Nicole's September Reveal

Hi everyone.... I am so excited to share my first reveal with you.  I loved this kit so much but then of course I really love all of the kits.  My favorite things in the kit was the flower and the bingo numbers.  The flower could be used in so many ways... you could use the flower flat like how came, roll the petals under or do as I did crumble the petals to give it dimension.  I have been in California for the last few weeks so I had the chance to scrap some old family pictures.  The first layout is titled Just Us and has a picture of my mom and siblings when we were young.  I used the flower as well as some of the packaging from the butterflies and from the flower.
 Here is a close up...
For my second layout I used a picture of my Grandmother and her brother that was taken in 1932.
The third project I did was a card.  The digital image is from Mo's Digital Pencil and I colored it with Promarkers.  I used the cute bingo numbers, made my own lollipop flowers and used another piece of the packaging from the butterflies.
 Here is the inside of the card.....
I hope you have as much fun with the kit as I did and I cant wait to see all your wonderful projects in the gallery!!!!

Brandi's September Reveal

I am so happy to be back and what an awesome kit to start with! I love anything with distressed edges so these papers are right up my alley! And the colors of this kit can really go with a wide variety of themes.

I used a piece of Core'dinations Cardstock on this one to add a bit of texture. The butterflies matched Addyson's dress perfectly.

On this next layout I was inspired to use song lyrics as my title because of the music print flower. The chipboard letters (LOVE), twill, & dark blue cardstock are all from my stash. I really liked the heart die cut in the kit but the print on it was a bit distracting for my page so I used it as a template and cut my own. I can now use the original on something else.

I created the music print paper by tea-dying (with I guess technically I "coffee-dyed" it! LOL!) a piece of cardstock. Once it was dry I ironed it flat and stamped the music onto it. Add a little ink around the edges and you have a nice vintage looking piece. (And it smells good too! LOL!)

The flower was a bit big so I took the back layer off and will use it on something else later.
I collect vintage cameras (Aren't they the coolest?!?) and the die cut/journal spot in the kit couldn't have been more perfect for this page! I cut it apart so that it would fit in with my collage better. The houndstooth print just screamed "vintage" to me. The small letter/number stickers are from my stash. This is actually just the left side of a 2 pager--still working on the other half.

This next piece is just a fun little wall-hanging I came up with. The images & butterfly are from the kit and the rest is just bits & pieces I had lying around. I cut the crown from the MME die-cut sheet & adhered just the edges to make it 3-dimensional. I added Stickles to both the crown & the butterfly (The butterfly immediately curled under when I applied the Stickles so proceed with caution.)

As you can see this kit is very versatile and can be used for most anything. I hope to be back in a day or so with a few more layouts--I have 3 started!

Misty's September Reveal

I know this is WAY late today, and I am so sorry! I knew I was going to be a little late, but unfortunately, some stinkin' tropical depression came right in on top of us ALL DAY LONG, and had my internet service knocked out.

SO, I am now finally able to upload ...and Thank goodness, because it looks like a dreary week for us down here in Texas...too many tropical storms around us!!!

For this first one, I love me some fussy that is what I did. I used those gorgeous butterflies, beautiful bloom and the super cute star pins to enhance this photo of my 5 year old winning the affection of her brother! Once Skye noticed that her big brother was giving some other girl attention, she went over and laid her head in his lap and said, "I want you to hold me, Bubba." I think that is a sneaky little girl! LOL

For this one, I focused on the number just totally made me think football for some reason! I love that it showcased these pics of my son playing football last year just perfectly! Yes, that is one of my own ticket stubs from one of the games last year.

This one is focusing on the super cute Bingo tiles. I totally cheated by making my own bingo card, and I will tell you how to do it....
All I did, was google "Bingo Card" and it pulled up several different pictures of bingo cards, I picked one, printed, and viola!!!

Thia is an AWESOME kit, and obviously not limited to just one or 2 topics! I LOVE the versatility, and the colors are fantastic!!!!!

Karry's September Kit Reveal!

Oh, you are going to love this kit!! Heather has found some gorgeous little goodies to go with the Glitz Kismet paper. In my first page I have used those gorgeous velum butterflies, the fun little journaling cards and tags, one of the add-on rub-ons and some of the gorgeous buttons.

This second page is another page just full of kit goodies! Isn't that flower just gorgeous? I love the Bingo pieces and brads too. The coredinations cardstock is one of this months ad-ons. Wow! I hadn't ever used them before! I'm afraid I'm addicted now. The colors where perfect and the pattern could have just been made for this kit.

This is Taylor's end of school program pictures from last year. She loved being on stage! She just grinned so big she glowed. I love seeing her have so much fun!

My picture doesn't do those gorgeous brads and buttons justice. They are beautiful, but I just couldn't get them to photograph well at all. I also used the other coredination add-on cardstock. I just love this cardstock! I did add the MME ticket from the July kit to the page. Your going to love this kit. I hope you have as much fun with it as I have had!!

September Color Challenge!

Today, with the temperature at a mere 98 degrees, I am feeling the beginning effects of fall with lower temps in the morning, cooler mid days (98 IS cooler here in Texas!) and the start of only means that autumn activities like football and fall festivals are just around the corner. I am so excited...aren't you!!??
I thought that using rich, deep hues will surely set us into a fall I decided to make this month's colors a tribute to the Artistic Beauty that is Autumn. Our colors will be:

.....................PALE PINK~~~TEAL~~~and OLIVE GREEN

.....................Here is my example using these colors....

I can't wait to see what you all create! Don't forget to leave a link on this post...and upload your layout into the Simply Obsessed gallery for your chance to win a RAK at the end of the month!

September Sketch Challenge

I am so excited to be back on the SO team! This month I've created a sketch for y'all. I know it looks a little crazy but don't be scared! LOL! It's just a bunch of paper layers/strips.

Be sure to post your layouts in the SO Gallery so that we can all "ooooh" & "aaaah" over them! Can't wait to see what you come up with!
