Cherry on Top!

Ok scrappers, I promised a project post, and here it is!

Scrapbooking has always been a part of my life. You know, as a kid, taping down movie stubs and articles celebrating the latest sports victory, but I've been scrapping Artistically, for the last 10 years. Meaning, I discovered the addiction love of paper, paint, stamps, stickers, and soaked up anything I could learn from anybody that was teaching techniques. I even branched out to collage with my love of paper and paint, and some people have actually bought some things from my Etsy Shop. So when Amy from Caffinated Cropper sent a beautiful kit to me to do as I please...well, I tried my best! Now in all honesty, I have never worked with a kit, but I won't be saying that anymore! It was quite refreshing to think to myself: "OK, this is what I have to work with, what can I do" and not worry about the seek and find! It was a personal challenge to come up with projects. This is what all the kit contains (picture below), Amy can give the complete list. As you can see, it's chocked full of goodies! Some things I would have never thought about buying ended up being my favorite things!

The only things I used of my stuff is card stock (white), craft paint (Jamaican Sea), and adhesive. Everything else was in the kit.

My favorite thing that I had never used is the Smooch Spritz, Cherry Red. I was Spritzing everything! Look at the effect on the white card stock, and then the pink card stock! It was really fun!

Trims and tulle. Stamps and twine.

Buttons and fabric. Stickers and paper.

I was in heaven!

Out of the whole kit I made 1 scrapbook layout, 1 bookmark, and 8 cards, and I still didn't use everything up!

Thanks so much to Amy @ Caffinated Cropper! What an opportunity this was! Please visit Amy and see all the wonderful fun projects and fabulous kits!
