The Story of a Scrapbook Kit with a Difference

So like most happy scrappy news, this was something that I had to keep to myself for a couple of months. But man, I was bursting with excitement when the lovely Julianne invited me to be the Guest Designer for Scrapbook Kits With a Difference for October!!

This was the very first page I cranked out when I got my kit that she designed with me in mind. And oh yeah did she get it right in every way! Hang on, let me show you what I'm talking about....

It's filled to the brim with the new Echo Park Everyday Eclectic line plus bunches of colourful fun embellishments (like that sewing girl card that definitely features in my next page!!), and you can grab your own kit over here.

But first I had to use that Twiddleybitz chipboard banner that I covered in gesso, a couple of layers of different mists and some sparkles. I've been neglecting my love of glitter for a while it seems. Time to get back into it :-) And it certainly suited my (almost) party theme on this page.

I also wanted to do something fun with the coin envelopes that were included in the kit, so I chose this bright yellow one and cut a window out of the front of it. I filled it with one of the white Prima flowers and mirrored buttons and tied it back up with twine. A little bit quirky, a little bit wacky... but I kinda like it!

All the journaling comes directly from this Pin I've got on my Quotes Board. It's from Stephanie Ackerman, and it was just too beautiful not to put on a page.
And speaking of pages, I've got lots more to share from this kit. But it'll just have to wait I'm afraid. I'm looking at a 25-hour working weekend so I gotta get me some rest now ;-)
