Why hello there.
Where has the time gone?
May I ask a favor?
Slow down the treadmill of life, please!
Wasn't it just July and I was preparing for my trip to Europe? Time has marched on and little has been scrapped. But there's no guilt here as sometimes (mostly summer) you have to stop and LIVE life. The scrapping and the kit can wait. Has this ever happened to you? Don't beat yourself over it. Open up an Iris box and place your goodies in for a rainy, scrappy day. That's what I'm going to do. I fully intend on using that Jet Setter kit from August. Stay tuned.
In the meantime, we are on to our next batch of inspiration. Let's take a look at this eclectic mix from Studio Calico:
I will be honest. I looked at this and thought, "I'm glad this didn't arrive in my mailbox!" It seems rather random to me, but I decided to keep positive and figure out my angle. I noticed those green and teal ferns and they reminded me of a fern paper I have in my stash. And there...my kit was born,
My inspiration fern paper seemed to fit with the existing color palette. A very unlikely mix for me, but that's the beauty of CKC. We strive to stretch you (and the Master Forgers) in all different directions. Take a closer look...
Be sure to check our "Forgeries on the Fourth" post on September 4th, of course! I'll show you how I replicated the gold dot paper as seen in the lower right corner.
No printer's tray this month as it is still loaded with last month's goodies! I have this month's offerings scattered here near my lush summer fern.
Not quite a fern, but that transparent leafy sprig will stand in well. Lots of old product like some smash journaling cards and metal rimmed tag.
The light pink paper with the black dots reminded me of one of the inspiration papers and the addition of the paper daisies is a nod to the flower paper.
So there you have it...another kit created. The important lesson to learn here is keep an open mind. I'm still glad Studio Calico didn't send me this kit in the mail, but I am thankful for the inspiration to create a fun, fresh and lush kit that uses the supplies from my stash...the supplies I love!
Here's the order of the hop. Be sure to visit all my fellow Master Forgers and Cindy, this month's talented guest designer. Welcome, Cindy!
Woo Hoo! Kids are back to school soon! Time to Scrap!
