I love scrapbooking - that is no secret. And I love kits because everything is put together for me ahead of time so I can spend less time gathering supplies and more time crafting. But - the sign of a really good kit is one that will let me achieve different looks with my projects, depending on how I use my supplies. The Paper Bakery's January Kit, Love Potion #9, is exactly that kind of kit.
Here is my first layout, which I had a blast making! I adore bright colors so all the pops of yellow and teal made me a very happy girl.
Have a little too much blank space on your layout that's driving you crazy because you are NOT a minimalist clean and simple girl? Well, if you are me, then you simply fill it up with a few ink splatters and a bunch o' sequins.
A-n-d if you are like me and have a sweet little glassine bag that is empty because you used all your sequins (or at least used all the ones that didn't end up scattered all across your floor), then why not add it to the layout, too? I stitched around the edges of mine and tucked a journaling tag into it. See?
Those little October Afternoon chipboard frames? Well, they just make me happy - plain and simple...
So, there you have one look. Here is the second:
This layout has a softer, more vintage-y look. And - rather than layering my papers like I often do, I instead layered my ephemera on this layout. How did I do it? Basically, I took every single bit and piece out of a bag full of bits and pieces from My Mind's Eye's Lost and Found Collection and moved each piece around on my layout. If I liked it, it stayed. If I didn't, it went back in the bag. If I wasn't sure, it sat by the side of my layout until the end.
Would you have guessed that these two layouts were made with the same kit? I don't think I would have.
That's it for me today. Do you like what you see? If so, please stop by the Paper Bakery BLOG and let them know what you think! And, of course, it would mean the world to me if you would let ME know what you think, too!!!
