By the end of the month, you may have less of our February kit and add-ons than what landed on your doorstep earlier, but today, design team member Melissa Mann is showing us that you can still create amazing things with your leftover bits and pieces, and a bit of creativity! Let’s take a look at what she created:
Hello and good morning! This is Melissa with you today, and I’m sharing a new project that I created with the leftover pieces of my February 2020 kit and add-ons. I hope this layout just proves how amazing the last bits and pieces from your monthly kit and add-ons can be to create with!
I really wanted to create my own piece of patterned paper using the Sunshine & Laughter Stamp. I decided to use a piece of kraft cardstock that I stamped repeatedly using the rainbow stamp and Versamark ink, then added various colors of embossing powders. I really loved how this turned out and it was a fun twist to use this handmade patterned paper along with the patterned papers from the Love Is Paper Stack.
Once I created this custom pattern paper, the rest of the layout came together quite easily with two other patterned papers that I stitched down using my sewing machine. I distressed the edges of all the patterned papers and then layered my photos vertically down the layout. I typed my journaling on one of the 3″ x 4″ tags from the February 2020 Kit.
To complete my project, I used more die-cuts from the February 2020 Kit, the February Print and Cut Labels, the Be Happy Stickers, and the Cork Stars. I cut my title “YOU & ME” from the February Cut Files on black card stock to really make it pop on top of the colorful patterned papers.
