August Kit Creations

Hey everyone!!

Just sharing a few lo's I did using Flying Unicorn's August kit "Remember the Tomorrows". I love this kit, it was so fun to work with!

I created this lo using the Websters papers that came with the kit. I also did if for a challenge Lisa is having in the forums this month. You had to create a lo using a Mother Goose rhyme. I could not find a picture to save my life of I went with the only pic I could think of. I chose the "I sing..I sing" rhyme for this. The journaling is handwritten around the circle. I only used half of the ryhme because we only needed the title in it..and let's face it..I ran out of room.

"I sing..I sing..from morn till night..
I used my MS Blooming Vines punch around the black Websters paper and added a piece of cardstock from the add on kit to it for more support. I cut a cirlce and used Lisa Gregory's tutorial to punch around the edges. Did some stitching as well.
Part of the challenge is you have to have a colored I grabbed my stamp and come Copics and then fussy cut to get a small branch with leaves.

I added some DA grass clusters that I got from the Flying Unicorn Store and cut the doily (from the kit) in half so I could use it in two different places.
For the challenge you had to make 2 embellishments using at least 3 different mediums. I pulled out a brown tag and the mistables paper..kinda like crepe paper and covered the tag with it. I then used glam over it and some Gesso and Stickles. I also made an embellie using Timmy's fragments, Glossy Accents, Gesso and a little paper and paint.
For this next's what I like to call a re-do. I have scrapped this pic before a couple years ago and I've been going thru some of my older lo's redoing them. I used the KC Lakehouse Collection from the kit to make this one.
I LOVE this has to be one of my all time faves from KC. I love the wooden chippies and I used the rubons from the kit to add to the "Adore" one.
The flowers in the kit and add on..rock!! Just sayin..Alda sure knows her flowers!!
I think the only thing not from the kit is the rub on Cameo I had saved from a previous kit. I love the Zva pearls too!
Ok talk about re-do's. This picture I did about 6 years ago and when I looked at the LO I said out loud..WHAT was I thinking!!?? LOL! I'm telling you all I had on there was a huge white flower..some journaling and paper was screaming to be revamped! It is a pic of my and dh outside the little country church we were married in.
The DA window/door and fountain did not come with the kit but I have been itching to use them! I love the little leaf stamp that is included with the kit and used it's become one of my new faves!

Well thanks for stopping in today!! Hope you are inspired to grab a kit..and get creative! Don't forget..I will be sharing my OTP creations with you all on August 10th!!!
