Paper Flourish October Kit Club

Happy Hump Day everyone! I hope you are all having some relaxing creative time at some stage this week. It's the 5th of the month again, which means it's Release Day for the PAPER FLOURISH October Kit Club. Tracey has really given us some beautiful products to work with this month and I'm here to share with you some of the projects that you'll see in the October Instruction & Inspiration Magazine that comes with these Kits.

This is a set of mini gift cards that I made with the October Kit, mainly using the Collectables that come in the box of goodies.

And two more cards...

And a layout. Check out the stitched circle stamp with matching die! An optional extra in this month's Kit.

I had so much fun playing with this Kit and I can't wait to create again using the oodles of left overs.
Thanks for looking xx

Sisterhood weekend inspo...

Just popping back as promised to share the other two layouts that I completed on our recent fabulous mountain Retreat. This first page is from a class that I commenced at the Create By The Lake Retreat back in July. This was a class taught by the beautiful Lauren Hender using lots of colourful Flutterby Designs products and multiple photos....eeek! I thought that the only way I was going to get this finished was to complete it for the challenge set by Lizzy Hill at last weekend's Retreat, criteria: use at least 4 photos. So here 'tis:

Just check out the beautiful Flutterby Designs Flair and wooden embellies! Soooo gorg!

This was really out of my comfort zone with the bright colours and multiple photos, but Lauren's design was very easy to achieve. Happily I think I'm becoming more comfortable with using lots of bright colours :)

The second layout that I finished whilst away was a challenge set by Mary Bennetts, criteria: use a song lyric or quote somewhere on the layout.  I chose this lovely quote by Carson McCullers, however at the time of printing the photo I had no idea who the author was, hence why it states "Unknown" on the photo, but happily I've since found out.   "We are torn between nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange. As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known."  This is one of my favourite travel quotes, and I have many in my collection :)

This is another travel photo of DD on her recent trip to Thailand. Gee I hope she keeps travelling so I can keep scrapbooking! :D or better still, I hope I can keep travelling!

I covered the title with Pearl Pen. The papers are a mixture of G45, Echo Park, Stampin up with a bit of hessian thrown in. The lovely wooden compass is from Kaisercraft.

So that's it for the moment. Thanks for dropping by once again and I'll be back next week with the new Paper Flourish October Kit Club projects.
