october @ wip


october...here we are. It hardly seems so, as our weather here in the high country has been resplendent of summer. i love the colors of fall, but i love the warmth of summer as well. so very thankful to be enjoying both.

here today to share few layouts from my interpretation of october's work in progress kits. the main kit has sold out...but i highly encourage the purchase of the add-on kit. it has alot of fun patterns and textures and is a great addition to any of your fall projects...or gifts...it's almost time to think of gifts.

the main kit included die cut tags in chocolate and the add-on had a sheet of my favorite stock:: kraft. for the fall banner, i simply distressed the edges, added a welcome sticker to the first tag, strung them together with vintage thread, and had a simple, yet festive little banner to hang on my printer tray. 

this layout made use of the ki calendar page. because this girl here is blossoming right before my very eyes in such a speedy fashion. time will not stand still for this one. i layered a piece of that fabulous pink paislee nantucket print, a part of the crate paper border sticker finishes off the edge. the title "you" is layered on one of the white tags and completed with the bazzil brown and white striped ribbon. a few word strips finish off the project. i use the house of 3 printable ribbon tags alot, but they are no longer available. these word strips can easily be made on your computer.

how fun is that typewriter paper from jillibean soup papers? i layered the card with two pieces from that collection, and left the top part open like a pocket. a tag from the crate paper label sticker sheet tucked perfectly behind. it can hold it's own sentiment i think. the green gingham ribbon from the main kit was a little too bright for this project, so i soaked it in black coffee for a bit to give it a ting of a vintage look. i likey. add a word sentiment to the card and it is complete and ready to give to someone you indeed think is wonderful.

the rest of my projects with this kit can be found here....and there will be a part two to that post later in the month.

thank you for stopping by today!
