August MCS Kit Reveal

This month I had the pleasure of designing with two different kits from My Creative Scrapbook. The 'Main Kit' which features beautiful papers from My Minds Eye , and the 'Album Kit' which features Bo Bunny. Both kits are filled with spectacular goodies. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to play with both, because it would be very difficult to select just one!

So first lets start off with the Album kit since that's how it loaded up onto my blog.

This month's 'Album Kit' features the Bo Bunny Popsicle collection. Yep, they're double sided papers!! The colors in this Popsicle collection are so fresh & fun and perfect for your summer photos! I had a blast designing with this kit!! It's so versatile and is packed full of embellishments! The Little Yellow Bicycle Summer Journal tablet & LYB clear cut word stickers are so awesome!!

I love the journaling card booklet that's included in the kit, plus you get two different font stickers. Here I outlined my title and coated the alphabet stickers with Glossy Accents for a slick wet look!

On my Eye Spy layout, this is my Grandson playing with a magnifying glass. He spent countless hours investigating bugs, and leaves, and all things little boys do.
For added interest, try mounting a sticker such as this arrow onto black cardstock. Or layer your embellishments like I did here with the painted chipboard flower, felt flower and button.
Using my Dymo label maker for journaling adds a fun touch to the page.


When I saw this funky VW Bus I just had to take a picture of it. I had no intentions of scrapping it, but once I saw these Bo Bunny papers.....well, I just had too!! They were a perfect match!


Several weeks ago we participated in the second annual Scott Kelby Worldwide Photo Walk. This is a photo taken from on top of a bridge looking down on some people enjoying a Jazz concert in the park. I have no idea who these people are...LOL....but liked the interesting view point.
To add depth without all the bulk I backed the funky flowers with black cardstock and mounted them on pop dots. I also outlined my letters with a black pen and applied a coat of liquid glass for a more dimensional effect.


The colors in the kits matched my gift bag perfectly, so of course I had to make a card to match!
This kit is so full of goodies! I had plenty of supplies to make 4 layouts plus this card, and I actually have enough left over that I could make a few more cards or mini book!


Now onto the gorgeous 'Main Kit'! These delicious papers from My Minds Eye are a very nice weight and doubled sided....yay....we all love that! Plus the kit is packed full of Primas!! We LOVE that too!!

I painted the chipboard words and sealed with Glossy Accents. The heart shape I simply colored with chalk ink and coated with a layer of Glossy Accents.

Simple stitching and loads of Prima Sprites make for a fast and pretty page.

I love the colors in this months kit and these gorgeous My Mind's Eye papers!!
A coat of Stickles adds a nice bit of sparkle to my Thicker alphas. I also outlined the Prima Sprites with Stickles.

I used the Prima packaging as a journaling block for my title placement. I made the white flourishes using dimensional paint. You can see wonderfully easy tutorials here and here.

And finally my last layout with the kit. That's 5 layouts I was able to create and I still have some leftovers!
The green strip on this layout is actually the packaging that accompanied the Prima flowers included in the kit. I thought it was much too pretty to toss away and thought it added a nice pop of color to my layout.

As you can see, I was able to create quite a few projects with both kits and I still have leftovers that could be used for card making or even another layout or minibook!! Pam really knows how to put these kits together so you get a tremendous value for your dollar!!
Be sure to visit the DT Gallery for additional inspiration!! These girls rock!!

Thanks for taking a peek!!

Wow, Debbie I just love the bright colors of these kits. My favorite layout is the "you and me" sweet with your doggy!

I tend to use my bright kits for 2 pagers and my Swirlydoos kits for portrait type layouts.
