Remember This Kit

There's a new kit at Scrapbook Circle and it is FULL of gorgeous new CHA stuff and one of my favorite color palettes: blue and yellow. There are other bits of color and fabulous neutrals, too, but the sunny yellow and pretty blues have really drawn me in. Here is my first project made with the kit:

This is my take on Challenge #25 - Pocket Full of Sunshine. The challenge is to incorporate a pocket into your layout. The kit comes with these great chevron-design bags by Whisper Graphics. I used one as my pocket and let the October Afternoon die-cuts spill across my page.

The photo is one I took of the boys just a couple of nights ago while I was playing with my Hipstamatic app. They were getting along so well - I had to document it. You know, before Jaxon smacked Carson with a car or GI Joe or something.

Like the stars? A half sheet of American Crafts glitter paper is included in the kit. It's gorgeous, thick stuff, but a bit too thick for my little star punch. Here's what I did to make it work. I cut off a strip of the paper, then peeled away a few layers of the backing. It made the cardstock thin enough to easily punch through :).

If you'd like to enter the challenge, the details are here. You don't have to be a subscriber, you don't have to use the kit, and you could win a $15.00 SBC credit. Of course, you could always pick up February's kit and the fabulous add-on, too ;). Have a great day! Tessa
