August Scrap Rat Kit Layouts

It's the first of the month which means kit reveal over at Scrap Rat! When i first received this month's kit i tweeted about how in love i was with it. i do feel like this kit was made just for me! There's lots of navy in there and some JBS plus the vintage items this month were lovely and there's also some lovely crochet flowers from The Craft Garden! i love the Mini Pattern & Accessory papers from the JBS Haven line, and had lots of ideas for them. i think i'm going to need more sheets of those and i never buy more then one sheet of any paper!

Kit's are available now can be bought here.

i adore this picture of my mum in her twenties. i loved the pattern on the back of this playing card but wanted to use the 'B' too (my mum's name is Beverly) , so i just decided to cut the card in half so i could use both sides! i decided to use the 7gypsies stickers as a border here so cut them in half and lined them up the edge and added some hand stitching.

This dot paper from Echo Park was a bit intimidating to me, i'd usually just use strips of a bold pattern like this but i wanted to challenge myself with it. i decided to use it as a backing paper and added 3 of the 7gypsies stickers to create a visual triangle and then cut out the silhouette ladies from the JBS Accessories paper. i also added a few red dots by stamping the end of a pencil with distress ink.

i'll be back with some of my other projects during the month but you can check out my gallery here and also see what the other ladies did. i've also got a tutorial coming up on the Scrap Rat Blog later in the month so keep an eye out for that!
