KOTM - August "Summer Fun"

Having some fun with our August Scrapbook - Kit of the Month!

We are starting off with some Sketch Inspiration this month!!

I love to use sketches - they can inspire the shape of how to cut your paper on the layout - or even ideas for mixing patterns - and ideas of where to put your embellishments and title!

This was my "Interpretation" of the sketch:-) I did something a little different with embellishments - added 2 more photos than the sketch originally called for - and also I did not add an official title * I often find that if the layout is part of a "Bigger project" like a vacation album, I don't feel the need to Title every page because the page becomes part of my story:-)


 Page 2 - is using the backside of the feather paper - I loved the lime green and coral combination - it looks like summer!!

Because the letters were Lime green, and I put them on a Lime green background - I took my Sepia colored journal pen and outlined the letters to make them pop!

The "Splotches" are made with Distress Stain, I just put it down onto the cardstock and gave it a little squeeze! It's a super fun look!


These tickets are just cut out of the My Mind's Eye paper in the kit

And some card inspiration for you too!!

All this was made using our KOTM this month - and I still have stuff left over!

I hope you feel inspired!

Once in a while its fun to mix it up! I am getting caught up on Project Life today, and just had to so more with these pics- so I thought 8.5x11 would be a nice way to add them to our family book:)
