As I alluded yesterday, I am part of the design team for a new monthly kit called Vintage Plum. Vintage Plum debuted their first kit in February of this year, and are quickly gaining popularity! Vintage Plum has a unique characteristic, and that is they only feature scrapbooking products that are made in the USA in the kit each month. I think this is such an awesome feature considering the state of our economy these days. HERE is a link to everything that is included in this month's kit, and here is the Hopscotch Gallery....be sure to check it out as there are some fabulous projects this month by the new design team!
Without further ado, here are my projects for my first kit with Vintage Plum. Be sure to click on the layouts to see them larger....you will be able to read the journaling, and they just look better larger! :) This layout is about my cousin Jamie, who I adore. We are 4 months apart in age, and she has been one of my greatest friends my entire life. I am so lucky to have her! The other two babies in the first photo are our cousins as well. The four of us were born fairly close together. I didn't have a baby photo of just Jamie and me together, so I used this one. I think it is pretty cute! This layout is just about the little things that I take comfort in. I adore fuzzy socks, and my coffee with creamer in a super adorable mug.
This is a transparent layout about playing Farkle with the family. This was on our vacation to Big Sky last year with Josh's parents. I am awful at remembering how to score Farkle...but they do it for me! We have a lot of fun playing games with Josh's parents!
And I LOVE this card...isn't it just precious?! Because I am such a clean and graphic scrapbooker, I really wanted to find a way to use some of the cute extras that were included in the kit, like the doily and the old book papers. So, I used them on this card and I love how it turned out.
And last but not least, a card featuring the Pink Paislee product that is in the kit. We are going to be featured on the Pink Paislee blog at some point this month, and they wanted to see some creations using up their product that is in the kit. I, of course, took on a card for this one!
And last, but not least....I provided the challenge this month for our May guest designer search. The challenge is called "Feel The Music", and you can find all the details HERE. We would love for you to take part in the challenge to become our next guest designer! If you have any questions regarding it, feel free to ask! This is the layout example that I did for the challenge....featuring some product from the kit, and a little from my stash. :) I just love this song.
Well, I hope you like my very first reveal as a kit club design team member! I really enjoyed working with the kit this month! If you are looking for a fun and laidback place to talk about scrapbooking and life...come join us. We are drama-free and love talking about scrapbooking and crafting!
Have a happy Friday,
