i was thrilled when heather asked me to be the guest designer for scrapbook bakery this month! actually, i should say i was honored ... she has had some of the best guest designers since she started doing her monthly kits. so i was very excited to be following up such talent from previous months. and the kits ... so cute!
this month's kit is called "love is in the air" ... perfect for valentines projects (although my layouts certainly aren't valentiney). the price is only for a limitied time and will change at a later date ... it is $34.99 with the retail value at around $45.00 ... so a great deal! and heather is also going to include a free goodie bag for anyone that orders and mentions that they saw this on my blog (just add it in the "customer notes" section).
this is the banner project i made using the large 5x7 heidi swapp playing cards that are included in the kit. yes, the other side on these are actual playing cards (which the girls really wanted to play with!) ... but i just loved the black polka-dot side. i did use some chipboard letters that are not in the kit ... but i covered them with the KImemories papers from the kit. the only other thing from my own stash that i added to my projects were the silver brads, the gems, and one sheet of white cardstock. everything else on here is right from the kit. and i even have leftovers ... just to show you how much you can do with this.
i think one of my favorite pieces from this kit is the clear hearts from heidi swapp. i used the inside and the outsides of all 4 hearts ... so i got even more out of them. i backed most of them with pattern paper. but on this card i was just using the thin outside piece ... so i decided to brush on a little black paint to make them stand out ... super easy. btw ... the coloring on the card look off now that i uploaded it ... it really is brighter. lol!
so make sure to go check out her kit HERE! and a big "thanks" to heather for letting me play with this fun kit!
