ScrapShotz September 2012 CT Reveal

I had the pleasure of working with the fabulous My Mind's Eye line "the sweetest thing" which is the Scrap Shotz September 2012 monthly kit (photo not available yet but addons are here).
The papers are fun and super versatile but my favorite item is the stamps!
Here are my projects using this fabulous kit!

The rosettes are made with the Tim Holtz min rosettes die out of the Studio Calico Fabrip included in the kit. I left the backing on this when I cut and folded it which makes keeps the fabric firm like cardstock so it was easy to fold and put together. The journaling block is accented with two strips of fabric folded over like ribbon.

This layout describes my daughter's desire for a pet. The strips along the right side are cut from one piece of paper "Playful" Lively which is chock full of border strips. Love those woodgrain Amy Tangerine{Muse}Thickers.
This layout is inspired our CT sketch created by the fabulous Jess Duerkson. I had lots of fun with the hand stitching but I'm annoyed with myself for not stamping the arrows towards the center of the layout. I used the kit stamp and stamped with grey Staz On ink which I covered with embossing powder and heat embossed. I freehanded the stitching around the circles.
I used the stamp included with the kit to stamp this image. It is inked with Tim Holtz distress markers on watercolor paper. The image is then misted with water. Love how it turned out!
Many great chipboard pieces included in this kit. I made one of them the sentiment on this card and punched the border with a Martha Stewart border punch.
Many great patterns make for a wonderful pieced card background. I cut these squares 1 & 1/2" x 1x1/2" and anchored them in the center with an epoxy dot. Simple, yet lovely!
I had a great time mixing these patterns on this layout and they go so well together being from the same manufacturer! I really like those word stickers, I used two different sets for this journaling/title along with the kit stamp!
This is a simple layout with just a few pieces of patterned paper. The star is the photos of course and that great layered sticker that serves as the title as well "Best Day".
Lastly is this card that is also my Scrap Shotz Design Team Monthly Challenge "keep it simple stupid". I've used three items only; epoxy dot, die cut & cardstock. You can see all our September Design Team challenges here.

Thanks for looking!
