June ETM Kit

Good aaaahfternoon... or whatever it may be where you are! It's a warm one here today! Feels great! I've just finished up a few projects from Kim's June kit from Express The Moment. Loads of goodies yet again this time... lots of masculine colors and patterns from Authentique, October Afternoon and Pink Paislee to name a few.

Here are the things that I came up with:

Following sketch 177 from Operation Write Home I made two cards.. I used my own stamp for the sentiments... it's from SU and I think it's the cutest cat ever! 

Well, maybe he's not so cute... he DID just yarf up a hairball!
I colored him with Copics. :)

Onward... here are some cards I made following Deconstructed Sketches.. which has really become a favorite "go to" place for me this year. I love them. Here are recent sketches 104 and 105.

No sentiments on these ones. I figure, you could add a photo from your recent Father's Day celebration if you wanted to... and send it to Dad. Wouldn't that be nice? These would also make good layouts for mini-frame projects, or you could even stretch them to make a 4x6 mat for a Project Life style page.

I love... love love love this sketch.

All of these things were in this month's kit! Pretty papers! Lace! Brads! Decorative borders! Cute paper clips! All except the flowers, which I carried over from last month's kit, and the sentiment, which is my own from CTMH. Love that pretty script for a fancy card.

Here is an 8x8 page - up in the corner you will see a scrap of ribbon that I used - this ribbon is also in the kit, and so are the cool kraft border punch embellishment things. This patterned paper is already so pretty, the page didn't need any more embellishment. The "Wonderful You" title is already on that wood paper! I love this design.

I rarely share full 12x12 layouts but I thought that this one was fun. I followed a page sketch by Tiffany Mitchell who is full of awesomeness for ten kinds of reasons... including a book that she published a while ago about layouts. Hey Tiff... how about some more sketches? :) There is room for one 5x7, a 4x6 and a 3x3 photo. I love the crossword puzzle paper. And the plaid... and the denim brads that came in the kit too.

Ahh, Project Life. Here are a few pages made with a combination of the papers that I had left over from the kit. The "Dad" themed papers will make great pieces for this kind of album. I also really enjoyed the chipboard arrows in the kit.

This page just kind of made me laugh... There are a whole bunch of words like these on the Pink Paislee pages... this page looks like it would be perfect for teen girl pics. :D

Thanks for stopping by!

Love the kitty card! Is "SU" Stamping Up? If so, is it current so I could get my paws on it? Thanks, Laura P
