May ETM Kit!

Express The Moment still has the most wonderful monthly kits! Here are a few projects from my May kit that I wanted to share!

ETM kits are still jam-packed with plenty of goodies for making your "Project Life" style albums! There are more pages in this kit than you can shake a stick at... from the "Photo Freedom" line by Echo Park.

The premade 4x6 and 6x4" mats are so easy to cut out and place directly into your page pockets. Very little embellishment is needed, but there is plenty more in the kit available to use!

This month's 8x8 page is just right for one 6x4" photo and I love the assortment of titles that you have to pick from. Many of the patterned pages even have little 3x4" squares for "Project Life" style albums. These also make really awesome titles for any kind of page.

There are so many cute colors and papers to pick from in the May Kit. There is a darling punch set provided and some cute edge borders ready-to-use too. Add to that buttons, ribbon and a full sheet of "Happy Birthday" rub-ons that will keep you in stock of Birthday cards all year long! This card was made following one of the latest Operation Write Home sketches - #169.

This month there is another first - an entire 8x5 pad of solid Bazzill cardstock in a variety of colors and textures! I'll tell you why Bazzill like this is my very favorite for card-making. The solid core and heavy weight make these mats perfect for bases - especially if you love to use embossing folders like I do. Here is a variety of cards I made simply by cutting solid mats at 4 x 5.25" and adding a few simple embellishments and the "Happy Birthday" rub-ons from the kit. 

Do you have a bee stamp, sticker or digi? I added one to this card. (Stamp by Imaginisce - not included in this kit.) I added the "Happy Birthday" rub-on with a slight twist, using a few alphabet stickers from the kit too. This card makes me happy!

I also used another Imaginisce stamp for the present on this card... you get the idea... solid base mats with some embossing make some really cute, clean and simple cards. They are also very fast to make!

Last one - I did want to show a few scraps of some patterned paper in this month's kit and a cute index card that was included, plus the cute "swirly" border die, a heart punch and button from the kit.

With all of the goodies in this kit, I'm sure that you will find lots of parts and pieces to make your own variations of these cards. Thanks for stopping by to check them out!
