Wow, it's been quite a while since my last post and I apologise, but I do have a good one: Summer holidays started this week and I really just wanted to enjoy those first few days to get into holiday-mood ;) (well, and last week I was sick for a few days, so no scrapping either..) A few weeks ago the sweet Dani Peuss asked me if I'd like to guest design for her using the current August kit and I happily agreed! :) Yesterday she also shared an interview with me on her blog, have a look (It's only in German, sorry, but you could translate it with the Google translater. Maybe I'll translate and share it here, too). So although you might have already seen some of the projects I've created with this kit in some online galleries, I still wanted to share them here so I can say a few more words about each one. Today I'm going to start with two layouts I made. The first one, titled "Endlich Mein" ("Finally Mine" in German), is about the best Birthday gift my fiancé could have gotten me this year: it's the cute little Kay Bojesen monkey that I've been wanting for so long! I had absolutely NO idea and was so, so happy about it! Of course I had to take him everywhere with me on that day ;)
The second layout was my absolute first try of an 8.5"x11" sized LO. I
immediately liked this format, which is why I've created quite a few
more in that size (I already shared one before, the others will follow ;) ) It
still reflects my style: white background, paper layering, misting and
enamel dots and, for the first time ever: stitching with my sewing
machine! So two firsts on one layout :)
I really liked the patterned paper with the speech bubbles by Pink Paislee, but it didn't fit in with my usual white background, so I decided to cut it up and sew the bubbles on the page instead. I think it looks quite cute.
Is there something you always wanted to try, like a different size or a special tool, but you still haven't? Or maybe you also just did something for the first time? I'd love to hear from you in the comments!
P.S.: Tomorrow I'm gonna share my "big" project I made with the August kit, so stay tuned! Products used: Dani Peuss August kit My Mind's Eye enamel dots Teresa Collins enamel dots American Crafts "Dear Lizzy" navy polka dot thickers (1st LO) Kesi Art Pschhiitt Spray Kaitlin Sheaffer labels
