So... here is what I have made so far with the On the Bright Side... Kit! (And I have a bunch more planned! Still have a lot of kit left!)
Did I mention that I LOVE this kit? I love it. Here are a few reasons why: it's super versatile. I've seen it bright, toned down, super pink, super neutral, can be cute, can be classy, can be clean, can be ornate- you've got a style, we've got something in this kit to appeal to YOU!
Here I have gone super clean and simple- definitely focusing on the photos and the cleaner elements in the kit. With two boys- I don't go "cute" very often... lol! I started with a clean white sheet of paper and misted it with a pale blue mist. Then, I set off to create a really fun embroidered pattern to highlight the large photo.
I started by sketching some sun rays softly in pencil. Using that sketch as a guide, I pierced holes through the paper. This would probably have been easier if I had a paper piercer or a sew-easy or something like that... lol! I pierced the paper with a pin- took a while... HAHA! Then, I used the Stone twine from The Twinery (it's in the kit!) and embroidered the paper! I LOVE how this came out and I can't wait to try it again on future projects! (HEY- if you would like to see a tutorial on this- let me know in the comments, please!)
I also added a little embroidered stripe along the bottom to highlight the title and a little on the "leaf" embellishment.
Love how EASY this layout came together with the coordinating papers, stickers, journaling sprout, alphas- SO much fun!
I really had A LOT of fun with this one, too! I definitely went with a "tropical" feel to highlight the beachy photos I was scrappin'! LOVE the fun mix of colors in this kit- you really can create so many different looks! And everything goes together really well!
I knew I wanted to do some kind of "mosaic" look on this layout, so I took a few strips of paper and cut them into tiny little squares. Then, I covered some paper in scor-tape and just started laying down pieces... it was actually VERY therapeutic! HAHA! You can totally go crazy with this and have a lot of fun! Give it a try!
I also took some time on this one to really do some JOURNALING. I'm not much of a journaler normally, but I wanted to remember how I felt this summer knowing that the boys were getting older and there was just so much more they could do! I definitely see them getting older as doors opening to new experiences- I don't look back much and wish they were babies again... I know that puts me in the minority, but I genuinely LOVE the boys they're growing into!
I hope you have enjoyed taking a peek at my layouts tonight! I'm SO excited about this new kit and can't wait for you to see everything that is included!
