You can definitely tell that summer vacation is in full swing around here! Swim team practices, trips to the pool, ice cream dates, bike riding, hanging on the patio, s'more roasting, and oh yeah, just a little bit of work (darn adult responsibilities!)....and um, very little blogging. Tis the season to be off the computer and enjoying life, right?!
But I am popping on today to share two of my JBS Mercantile kit layouts, both of which were made using just the Papercrafting kit. It features Jenni's new paper line, Wren, and there's a very limited quantity of the kit left...so grab one while you can!
This first page is for the JBS Design Team Challenge to use a grid + stencils. (And just a heads up for anyone looking to add to their stencil stash - the JBS Mercantile exclusive stencils are 50% off this month!) I used the Star Dot stencil + Weather Vane paint dabber to make a loose grid background for my photo:
Once the paint was dry, I used a ruler and a white pen to create subtle lines that further reinforce my grid structure. The flowers were cut from one of the new papers, Lace Curtain, and topped with clear buttons. I covered one of the kraft tags with red striped washi tape and used chipboard letters + stamping for my title.
My second page is also based on a grid design (so perfect for Instagram photos!) but I tilted the whole alignment for a whimsical look. The photos were printed 2-inch square and mixed in with several papers and vintage goodies from the kit.
I loved using a variety of punches, stamps and small paper bits to adorn some of the squares and the Kodachrome slide that comes in the kit was a perfect addition, too!
And with that, I'm running off to swim practice - summer beckons!
