Hello, friends! This is Melissa with you, and I’m excited to give you a preview of some of the products that will be available in the August monthly kit and add-on release, coming this Wednesday, August 10th at 8am Pacific time! There are lots of great new goodies, especially, for those book lovers! Take a look at the first project I created:
Supplies | August 2022 Kit, Notebook Die Cut Shapes, Fuchsia Jane Alphabet Cardstock Stickers, Jane Tile Alphabet Cardstock Sticker – Teal, Lost in a Good Book Cardstock Stickers, Teal Cardstock Label Stickers, Adventure Paper Stack, A Good Book Stamp, School Tabs Stamp
I knew from the beginning of this project that I wanted to create a grid-based layout. I chose six books that I’ve either read or want to read and cropped photos of them to 2 x 2-inch square images. I picked six pieces of patterned paper that corresponded with six of the 3 x 4-inch journaling tags from the August 2022 Kit.
I layered the patterned paper, 3 x 4 inch journaling tag, and photos on top of each other and then stitched lines down the width of my layout, above and below my photo grid. Then I stitched down the individual blocks. Once I had the bones of my layout constructed, I then stamped the word “reading” from the School Tabs Stamp near the stitched lines above and below my grid.
I stamped out several images from the A Good Book Stamp in black ink on white cardstock and cut them out. These were layered in each individual block along with the Teal Cardstock Label Stickers, Lost in a Good Book Cardstock Stickers, and the Notebook Die Cut Shapes.
I used the Jane Tile Alphabet Cardstock Sticker in teal to create a title on the top and bottom of my layout that said “Go Read a Book!” and my journaling strips went on either side of those captions.
I hope you are ready for all the new products that will be available tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!
Set your alarms for tomorrow, August 10th at 8am Pacific time when our newest products will hit the shop!
