Welcome to another Team Brae-er Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Chris’ Creative Life, you’re on the right track. I’m excited to share the project I created. I looked at this kit initially and wondered how I could think “outside the box” with it. I don’t know about you, but sometimes I have difficulty seeing beyond the suggested project when a promotional kit comes out. I’ve pulled this out a bunch of times with the intention of working on something for this blog hop just to put it away again. But, on Sunday, I had the afternoon to play and I finally felt inspired. I absolutely love how it turned out. Here is my project:
This layout started with cutting apart one of the patterned sheets of paper. I cut the dot one in half and trimmed my photo down a bit and started just laying things down, playing with placement. I ended up trimming the top ones a little shorter so I could have a good 1/2″ frame around the entire layout. Everything you see on this page came from the Year >> Noted kit. I used only Black ink and added my own handwriting to the journaling list. The title was cut with my Explore and one of the fonts I found in Design Space. I also added some doodled lines around the entire frame. I’ve been doing that a lot lately and I really like the look. I also love that even though there’s a lot of great embellishment, this layout is completely flat. It won’t be adding any bulk to my album. Sometimes that’s just what I want. I can’t wait to create some more with what I have left over.
Don’t forget that this kit is only available for the month of January and is only $5 with an order of $50 (or add on the mini album for a kit total of just $10).
Now it’s time to hop on over to Arlene’s blog and check out what she did with this kit.
