"Joy to Remember" ~ September Kit of the Month

I am so excited that the time has finally arrived for my first official Flying Unicorn  Kit of the Month reveal! This month's kit is called "Joy to Remember."  And what a joy it was to work with! Full of yummy KaiserCraft papers, flowers, rhinestones, frame and wooden flourishes accompanied by vintage lace, brads, gorgeous pearls and so much more. I still have lots leftover so you will be seeing more from this kit. There was also the "surprise"  Off The Page project that we were especially curious about this month. 

So, now let me show you what I've done so far.

Here is a page I did using KaiserCraft's Duchess collection and a KC wooden flourish which is included in the kit. This page went together fairly quickly .. for me. I am usually a very slow scrapper but I so enjoyed this color scheme, that I flew through this one! Or it seemed that way! LOL I've used this photo of my Mom before and never tire of using it. These colors are great for vintage, Fall or just about anything where you might want brown, olive green and denim blue tones. Be sure to click on the photos for an up-close look of any of these.

My second layout is using KaiserCraft's English Rose. I have wanted this collection for a few months but have put off buying it, so I had a pleasant surprise when finding it in my kit. I cut the die cut piece in two and used it on each edge. There is lots of yummy Prima here that is from my own stash as well as some small roses from the Flying Unicorn store. The photo is the daughter of a family friend. I love how whimsical this page turned out. I had some serious fun working on this page! I especially love the pop of red that I added in the small red roses. You can barely see them but they are there and seem to add so much.

I have always loved this photo of my mother and brother together when he was small.  For this one I used some more of the Duchess paper as well as some gorgeous peach lace from the kit. The flowers and bling are from my stash.  I did some stamping and punchwork, added in a small KaiserCraft doiley and then outlined the peach mat with some small pearls. My Alphas are from Jillibean.

Alda always includes an Off the Page project in her kits. This  time she had us all wondering what it could be that required an oversized box. Well, it was 3 paper mache' cans ready for whatever you can think of to create. Well, I had tons of ideas (seriously) but not too much time, so I did some simple painting, stencilling and die cutting to come up with a bit of home decor. 

I also quickly made a card from the English Rose papers and added a few flowers. I still have product left for at least a couple more projects! Another OTP and maybe a card. There is some awesome stuff I just didn't around to using. So, later this month, I'll share those.

Okay, time to start thinking about ordering that kit! Remember that these usually sell out in the first 1.5 to 2 days, so don't tarry if you want one!

Also, September starts a new month of challenges in the Flying Unicorn Forum.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you tomorrow for another Stuck on U Sketches sketch challenge reveal with another original sketch.
