This kit was awesome (Lynns always are!)! There are always so many embellishments in them - almost more than you can use on the paper in the kit. To show off some of the chipboard diecuts I made these cards. On the second one I added one of the little metal tags too. They are SO cute!
With the decorative edges to these papers it was easy to make lacy borders along my first card.
And these are only a few of the embellishments in the kit - there are many more - watch for more from the DT to show them all off.

Mixin' & Matchin'!

I love to mix and match!
Every one of my layouts has something that has been
mixed up from different manufactures, colors, designs, or just
about anything I can think of to create what I call a great page!
This month's kit allowed me to mix and match a lot!

I really enjoyed
doing that with the kit because it offered up so many different colors
to be able to do just that!
I took each element from the kit and used it on this layout.
I mixed colors that don't normally go together and put them together!
Never be afraid to mix and match colors!
You just never know what you'll get!

So take this month's kit and play around with it and the colors!

Say What?!

The therapy kit this month contains these cute My Little Yellow Bicycle Say What Clear Calendar Journaling Cuts...these are super fun pieces that can add so much to your page.

I decided to use the circle one to create this fun centerpiece for my page...I added the cut to a piece of cardstock that was cut into a cirlce shape exactly the same size as the spot. To adhere my clear shape I used Helmar Craft Glue; it dries super clear! I then cut the larger scallop circle using my Cricut and mounted the circle to the center. I used an American Crafts Slick Writer to do my journaling. I used an orange sharpie to color in the numbers I selected (I colored on the backside so it was lighter from the front).

for my next layout, I also backed the clear piece with cardstock (using the same Helmar adhesive), but this time I used rubons for my journaling. I cut the flowers from one piece of the My Little Yellow bicycle pattern paper; the strips are cut from the same paper; the opposite side. I added the white flourish sticker from my stash (American Crafts).

these calendar clear cut journaling pieces are fabulous on layouts and can be really fun as part of your overall layout design!

Happy crafting!!! Lynda

The paper and embellishment coordinate perfectly!

These colors scream summer to me!

I also am loving the alphabet in this kit by Webster's Pages.Anytime you get a choice of 4...yes count them...4 alphabets in a kit you can't help but have the perfect match!
