Have I mentioned how much I love this little kit club?!! Every month never disappoints with creative overload of contents in each kit. This month is packed with fun embellies and trims, tons of pretty pattern papers, and much to be inspired by.
Since we are celebrating World Card Day, my gallery this month is heavier on the cards. So far, I have made 5 cards and three layouts and have a ton of patterned papers, trims and embellies left to play with!
Sooo, without further adieu.... here is my DT gallery for October:
The Sweetest Thing line by MME? Love it. Perfect for showcasing a vintage pic of my sweet momma as a little girl with my gramps. I am a big fan of this line by Jen Allyson. (Love me some enamel dots too. I might not have enough of them-yet! Hoping I/we might see a few in some upcoming LBD kits. :)
Love the look of Mr Huey's Shine on this card. If you look closely, you can see the sparkle. I think it helps add to the feel of the card and show off the adorable flair/badge that's in the kit.
Look at my little dude's Snow White hair. Perfect for Disney, no? ;)
This layout commemorates a trip to Disney and "Mickey's Not So Scary Parade." The boys loved the parade and they loved wearing their costumes Mimi and Papa brought back from a trip to China. I played off off the Konnichiwa pp using my Silhouette to create the cobweb, and font work titles with Chinese characters that translate to "hello". The idea was that no matter what language you speak, Mickey's "Not So Scary" at WDW translates to a whole lot of fun." I realized after I took this layout pic, I didn't get my inspiration journaling onto the layout. But no worries, I simply got out a shipping tag, journaled on it and tucked it behind the photo on the left. (One of my fav ways to get more journaling on the page!)
The vintage paper that came with the kit (the jack-o-lantern here) is awesome. I just cut this little snippet out and used my Staedtler watercolor pencils to color it up. Love the effect! :)
(ETA*Sorry, I inadvertently did not get this card posted here earlier. Sorry for the confusion! )
Have I mentioned I like to repurpose things? Well, I do. Here I have used some of the packaging from the Basic Grey flair at the center of this card. (Oh, and, "The Sweetest Thing"? On my layout about my mom? It was packaging too. Looooooveeeeeee to stretch my imagination and my kit! It helps me think out of the box at times. Try it sometime. It is totally fun. I promise! ;)
Well now! It's off to creating with more of the kit and some Wold Card Making Day celebrating!) Be sure to check out the LBD blog for more design inspo from other DT contributors. Check out LBD on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram too while you're at it! :)
Happy World Card Making Day y'all!
