Julys class kit

This month we used Echo Park for the the colours in this kit.  If you had said to me black, red, yellow and green...I probably would have said no thanks, but they work really well together.  Ideally suited for a heritage layout, mine needs some journaling but I have to work our dates and the photo in the second layout is my great great grandfather but not sure which of my nans brothers and sisters the baby is.  When I get time I am going to start work on my family history and hopefully I will get some idea of who it is!!

We stained cream seam binding with Distress ink Scattered Straw and spritzed with water to get that lovely vintage look.

The 2 of u

Had my monthly crop yesterday and I took some time away from class preparations to use up some left overs from an old kit.  Papers are Pink Paislee Queen Bee...still love those cork buttons! The Mustard Bazzill was cut using the Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge....loving this cartridge, its on loan from a friend...thanks Jo!  The title was cut on the alphabet thats on the same cartridge.  Flowers are from the newest Tim Holtz Sizzlet die with the 2 concertina flowers on it ...I did 1 big and 2 small.

Anyway back upstairs to clean up the mess..........actually got some class work done this afternoon with 1 eye on the Tennis......congrats played brilliantly!!

Enjoy whats left of your weekend
