My Creative Scrapbook February Limited Kit Reveal, Part 1


Hello, everyone! Time for another My Creative Scrapbook Kit Reveal! I worked with the Limited Edition Kit as always. It was filled with Carta Bella's beautiful Yesterday collection by Lori Whitlock. It's packed with gorgeous vintage-y papers, chipboard, sticker elements to use and design with, as well as glittery and shiny gold Heidi Swapp gold word titles. Of course, lots of pretty Prima! Authentique petite type letters, open road frames and 4 kinds of trims. The flu has hit my house but I tried to work through it because this is a beautiful kit! 

Of course, I'm leading off with my Lucille Ball page. I am still researching the photographer on this one.  It is a publicity photo from the 1940's found on Tumblr. I apologize for my photos this month. They do seem very dark. 


"6 months"

This is my happy little granddaughter! Oh my, time goes by too fast! I wanted just a little but not too much mixed media on this one, so I've used parts of my 6x6 ledger stencil here and molding paste. Then followed with gesso. Lots and lots of layers, frames and flowers.  Had so much fun tucking here and there.




I am doing a tutorial on this page but I thought I'd try doing a different color palette for a change. Kind of mix things up! I never really do black and white, so this is my version of that. I'm using a photo taken by my son-in-law doing a recent trip to NYC. I love it and thought it looked so good with these papers! I may even scrap this photo again soon .. love it so much! I have to comment on the gold trim in the Kit. It is really awesome! Looks great and is so perfect for these papers! I wanted to use it on every page! LOL But loved tucking into this cluster! 


Here is a photo of this month's LE Kit:


I have one more project to share with you in a few days. I know, I should have done 2 and 2 like I usually do but I  liked the way that these 3 went together. :)

Thanks for coming by! I always appreciate visitors. 
Especially now that I don't keep my blog as busy as I used too! 
Take care!
