March Kit at Scraptastic Kit Club

The kit I chose this month is called Mr. Brightside......for obvious reasons!  It's bright and happy and fun!  I also got the addon (which is sold out).   I love how many details are in these kits, lots of variety ;)

Mr. Brightside

add on


For this layout I used one of my Pinterest pins for inspiration....I share about it on the Scraptastic blog here, if you'd like to read more about it ;)


For this layout I loved the dark blue, but decided to tone it down just a touch with some white mist.  I added some very subtle black "bubbles" with these stamps  along with a few other stamped images.  I love the way these bright pictures pop of the page and all the little accents of color.....perfect ;)


These pictures are of Jack at his open house for Kindergarten.  It was kind of a no brainer pairing them with this kit ;)   I loved that kraft chevron and knew I wanted it for my background.  But I also wanted some of it's "B" side.  Having used a bit of it I needed to create a design based on the fact that I didn't have a full sheet.  So I topped it off with some leftover blue and layered everything towards the top.  I could have just left it as is with the bottom plain, and that would have been cute, but I decided to cut some colors from the Glitz Color Me Happy stripe to enhance the chevron.  Throw in a couple of stamped images and there ya go!

I was also on the blog this weekend sharing my space.......my crazy out of control jam packed scrap/sewing space (don't judge me, k ;)   Check it out here if ya want!!! 

Thanks for looking and happy Tuesday!
