062415 June CKC Member Blog Hop

So glad you are hopping through our June CKC member's hop! 
It's your time to shine & inspire us all with your creativity.

Some months this is my dilemma...
I always love my kits, and the process of putting them together.
When I go to use them I can find myself uninspired for the challenges.
I'm sure there is a Design Team secret to avoiding this!
Challenge #1:  Patterned Die Cuts
 Use only PATTERNED PAPER to create 
a layered die cut for your project.

I'm always a sucker for a rosette.
Like the FAB ones in this book:

 So I made this from (mostly) patterned paper:

I wanted to scrap this photo from our recent trip to Georgia.

I just love how the adults are so laid back but the three year old is ready for what's next!
I used two more of the little kraft hearts to make my visual triangle.

I wish I had stitched the white chevrons...


  1. Super sweet layout and just love that rosette :) so cute it is and perfect for a layout without adding a ton of bulk to it. Yes I have hit that road sometimes and this month was one of those times, just love putting the kit together and there it sat in it's pile waiting for me to d something with it. Hopefully I'll get some impulses to use it in the following week and maybe a bit next month too.

  2. I love your rosette, and how you got the same look without all of the bulk! I am definitely going to try that (someday, lol)! Very pretty page!

  3. I actually like yours so much better, its easy to use (not so lumpy-bumpy) and the colours are just gorgeous!! How cool is the perspective in the photos and I love that its B&W cos it makes all the colours pop... you are very clever with this sort of thing!!!

  4. Beautiful rosette and that photo is just wonderful - she really does look like she's raring to go! The pastel colors of the layout is a nice combination with the kraft title and hearts and I like the stitching around the edge too.

  5. Beautiful layout. That rosette is awesome, I really like it better. Such a sweet picture. Yes I have put my kit together and then wasn't inspired to make anything. I keep mine together and if I haven't made anything in a couple of months I take it all apart and it goes back into my stash.

  6. I think this layout is super lovely! All the colors tie in together so beautifully. I loved that rosette ribbon! the picture is so sweet too. I really liked the border stitching too. Well.. i love everything... !!

  7. your rosette! Makes me wanna make one with my CKCB kit if I can figure it out! Love that you journaled on photo border and that you used a b/w pic :)

  8. Cute rosette Leslie. Your colours all match in so well and you even highlighted the chevrons on the page as well.

  9. Here is the kink:

  10. That rosette is fantastic. Brings to mind a dream catcher. What is that bottom piece? Is it a die cut? What does it look like? Inquiring minds, need to know.

  11. I can't help you with the DT secret but I do believe that very often, every kit has its time. I have more than one CKC kit on my shelf so that I can grab and go - if this month's just isn't working for a particular challenge, I will grab another. Of course, I can't do that with my Scrapabilly kit and concentrate on using the products in a way that makes me happy. The rosette here is fabulous of course! As is the rest of the layout and what a fab picture!


Would love to know you've been here! Feedback most welcome
