May Kit and June Sneaky Peeks!

We are so excited about the next few kits! May's kit features the gorgeous and very versitile Minestrone range from Jillibean Soup aswell as a host of extra goodies to tie it all together and make scrapping a breeze.

We now have May start subscriptions available here, hurry if you want to join because subscriptions have sold out the past couple of months!

We have also put together some little peeks of June's kit featuring the gorgeous new Linnie Bell collection from Pebbles Inc. We were bowled over by Pebbles' new releases and had to have this one for a summer kit, the colours are stunning!

Q&A by Rachael Elliott

Rachael created this gorgeous layout for us using the new Bloom range by My Mind's Eye. We love the idea behind the page and Rachael explains how she did it:

Back in November 2007 I did one of these layouts for each of my girls, it was an idea that I got from UKS. They are great layouts to look back on, I love the fact that the girls get to write their own answers on the page and it records their thoughts and handwriting. I thought it was about time that I did another one so I have started with one for Emily. I printed out the questions using microsoft office and lots of different fonts, then cut them into strips. Emily pracitsed her answers on some scrap paper first and then wrote it out in best on the layout. Some of her answers I have expanded on the back of the layout as she didn't really have enough room to explain her reasoning. You could use the same idea for younger children and record milestones that they have reached at the time that you do your layout.

Growing Our Own by Nat

Nat created some gorgeous layouts for us with the new Jillibean Soup releases. Here's one, but check back soon for more! Nat explains how she made the page:

Growing Our Own:
I wanted to keep this page pretty simple to reflect the idea of getting back to basics by growing our own apples. I used the “Brown sugar” paper as my base, and layered a small piece of the “minced shallots” paper, just wider than my photo, on top. I then stapled a thin slice of “green peas” and some ribbon on top, before adding my photo. I created a mat for my title by popping two circles cut from the “Portobello” paper under my photo and created my title using mini alphas from My Little Shoebox, and my own handwriting. To finish the page, I embellished it simply using an AC Flair badge, and the top layer of the Scrap FX chipboard bee in the lower left hand corner of my page.
