070119 CKC July Kit Reveal

I'm celebrating America the beautiful this month!
All-American Master Forger Tina is on deck for the month of July and has chosen a very creative & prolific scrapper to join the team this month! Give a warm CKC welcome to our July Guest Designer, Kathy Sonnier McElfresh.

Tina & Kathy's friendship began over at ScrapHappy. Tina introduced Kathy to Calvinball where she was on fire this year!  Tina also turned her on to CKC when she found out that Kathy likes to make kits. They even got to meet irl at a retreat this year. Scrapsistas are the BEST.

Now to unveil Tina's choice for our July inspiration kit!
Clique Kits June 2019 "Sweet Tea" Main Kit
Tina chose these kits because they are her style & the "Sweet Tea" name sounds like summer!

Let's open up the Magic Blue Box & take a look at My Heart is Full

Starting with the papers...



Top:  2018 Echo Park - You & Me/I Love Us Floral, Felicity Jane unknown kit, 2018 Pink Paislee Horizon #13, Webster's Pages - My Happy Place/Pretty Plaid (altered), 2014 Pink Paislee - Citrus Twist/Gold Foiled Vellum
Bottom: 2019 MME - Tutti Frutti/Blueberry Hill, 2018 AC - The Color of Memories #348876, 2014 Crate Paper - Open Book/Pages, 2017 Pink Fresh - Let Your Heart Decide/Thought, My Heart is Full card unknown.
The full kit:

The Thickers Goldenrod chipboard pack is my only exact match. I subbed in 2016 Dear Lizzy Bonjour alphas with gold accents, 2012 Studio Calico frames, 2014 MME Jubilee gold doily overlay, custom flowers, assorted ephemera, puffy sticker packs: 2016 Pebbles Jen Hadfield, MUST USE or lose 2017 Pink Paislee Turn the Page leftovers,  2018 Jen Hadfield Chasing Adventures, 2018 Pink Fresh Everyday Musings, white doily & tissue dots in happy mail from a special MF friend.

I chose the large Echo Park floral as my starting point. This is one of the few times that I have paused to consider how all the papers work together - I am usually hyper-focused on finding each perfect match! Light bulb moment, lol (or should that be DUH?)

Here's the hop for even more inspiration:
