creative day!

ok, so i had an awesome day! got so much done- i got all my 'house work' done by about 3pm, so i got to finish up these pages… you will notice that the three of them have some things in common! but i had so much fun w/ some of the elements, that i just kept playing! ….   SO, as i mentioned– i have been playing with the newest "little black dress" kit, and it is fantastic!  here is a look at the contents:

i went a little crazy on these pages… they are all full of stuff!

Schoolvacation

this is quincy with one of her cute little friends- they are so cute!  the kit had these awesome flash cards- so i cut it up and made a fun little banner- i also added some House of 3 banner printable (for the ENJOY- and you will see them in a couple more places… LOVE this!) and the "vacation"…

Banners

Schoolvacationupclose 

so i did lots of layering of banners on all the pages… i feel addicted! i sewed tons of them together using my sewing machine!  i made 'circle' banners by punching out circles w/ my 1/2" punch… then i cut a bunch of words out of the different types of book paper in the kit (see below) and made a word banner. and even used the October Afternoon stickers (the red ones) to make a little banner as well!  i LOVEd the epoxy stickers from the Melody Ross collection- i used foam dots to pop them up. cute cute.

another addiction is the pleated paper ruffles- on this one below i used some fun music paper that was included in the kit- this kit also had tons of fun, unique buttons

you can see on this page below… again i used the circles banner- this time on the top of the photo- and the paper ruffle… below, and i layered some red lacy stuff on top…  you can see another "love" sticker banner (you'll see tips below)… and i LOVE the pennants made from the map paper- i just attached these w/ mini-foam-dots.

the "wish" is from another of the flash cards- and the "one of a kind" flag is actually just the name of the October Afternoon paper- but i thought that the font was so cute, i made it a little flag!  i sewed the "sweet" out of the Prima stickers- i did have so much fun playing with this page..

and the last one, i actually used a couple papers from the June kit– i LOVE this green polk-a-dot paper!  THIS month's kit came with this amazing green houndstooth tissue paper- so i tore it into strips and sewed it into a rosette! dang cute… and so easy!

i think that the 'street map' paper is my favorite part of the whole kit. great colors!  (here i used it behind the photo)… these guys find cool stuff- it's inspiring! see  the little "pennies" coin roll flags, and the cute mini card. i went crazy w/ the little hearts!

this is a photo that i snapped at cute Paige's first b-day… see if you spot all off the little obsessions: the paper ruffle, circle banner, and one other…

the new killer dot technique!

Dotsfun
ok, so this kit comes with this freaky purple dot stuff- i am not sure what you'd call it- it seems foil-ish- anyway- it works SO amazing to place it down on your paper, and then simply swipe the distress ink applicator sponge over it… you can even blend colors- i seriously had so much fun playing with this stuff… you have to go back and look at the up closes so you can see how i put it in the backgrounds, and even on some of the embellishments and photo mats.  love it!!

so a couple other fun tips… if you grab the House of 3 printable banners… (so so cute) it's fun to stick them in your vintage typewriter and add messages of your choice! if you are janet, you have like 4 typewriters to choose from! i do love mine!

Typewriter

ok, and my last tip of the day… if you want to make one of these letter sticker banners – here is the way to do it- stick them on your jeans to get a little lint to make them less sticky- then put them 1/2 on a scrap of paper in the order you want them to be on the banner.

then run it right through your machine…
