September at Scraptastic

September has been a busy month!  I haven't had near enough time to play with my Scraptastic September kit,  but here's what I've got so far ;)

This month I chose the "We are Family" kit and add on.

First up
I really LOVE the color scheme in here....the blues and oranges are amazing together.  I cut the chevron paper and used portions to create my arrows.  One large spot of blue and the two together just pop!  Super simple but makes a big impact.  I layered some of the phrase stickers to balance with my title on the opposite corner.  

Another orange and blue combo here, with an aqua background.  I love to border my layouts with strips of paper typically, so I thought it would be fun to balance that with another border on the opposite side.   I have my photo cluster coming off the single wide border and kept the other thinner with a variety of strips and layers.
 I pulled the alphas & wood veneer from a previous kit, and the tag and ribbon are from my stash.
I used this a variety of this months stamps  here.....coloring them with the marker I got in my kit.  They make for the best little

This ombre paper by Maggie Holmes is in the add on and it's to die for....right??!!  To make my butterfly I found a clip art butterfly on line and printed it out.  Used it as a pattern to trace out on my pink paper.  It's the poor mans die cut ;)  But it worked great and adds that super sweet girly feel I was looking for.
 The sequins are from a previous kit.

There are just a few "We are Family" kits left, along with the stamps so go get em'!!!  This month has been one of my faves, hope I get to play with it more ;)

More August Layouts & Sept. Kits

Just wanted to pop in real quick and share a few more of my August layouts at Scraptastic!

 This layout started out with our sketch and went a little wild from there. But that's what's fun about sketches, they can be a good starting point but where you take it after that is your own business!!  You can see what the rest of the team did with it over here.

For this layout I used a Pinterest find as my starting point.  You can see that inspiration piece over here.

The September kits have also been announced today!!!
Here is a look at the This Life Noted kit......I am dieing over it....swoooooon!!!

The rest of the kits can be seen here!
