July ScrapGoods Layouts

Oh my DH loves me so much.  All my scrappy stuff is on its way to Alaska and I won't get it back until the middle to end of October! :(   But I kept my printer and photo paper and some tools.  And YAY!!! I got my July ScrapGoods kit in the mail!!  So I've been wanting to play.... but my printer was out of ink.  So DH went and bought me ink and I've done 4 layouts since Saturday!! WHEW! Got my scrapping fix in! LOL!
This month's kit is awesome.  GORGEOUS MME papers and the COOLEST Coredination cardstock!!! Have you heard of this stuff??? If not, you should check it out! I've been scratching and distressing for two days!  Oh, and everything I've used on these pages is from the kit!!! I have nothing else! LOL!
Jessy and Sierra.  The border is all scratched out of the coredination cardstock. The design is from the template in the kit.  The flourishes and bird were white vinyl clings that I inked with red stazon.  I didn't mean to go monochromatic, but everything I added just didn't seem to 'go' unless it was red, KWIM? So it turned out mono.
The Heidelberg Castle.  It SUCKS not having all my stuff with me, I had to make do hand cutting and paper piecing where I normally wouldn't have done that.  But I think this turned out great.  I paper pieced the butterfly and flower from the SG kit and then scratched with the tool included. 
Ruby Roo riding a horsey.  Simple LO that really just came together and I think its my favorite from this kit! I love the core cardstock!!! Did I say that already?  Its really easy to distress. with the title, I handcut it and then scraped off the outer edge for some pop.
The three amigos!  Dillon, Sierra, Ruby (and Karis) this summer during Dillon's visit.  Scratched the title, the border around the star, and the squiggly lines between the pics.

July C2P Layouts

I got my C2P kit last week. Are you ladies jealous? You should be! It is perfect for summer fun photos.  Especially since we just visited Legoland.  The colors were perfect! And I even got a nice castle LO from the kit too. I have more plans, but they will have to wait until October.  My house gets packed up July 8th and I won't get it back until then :(
Enjoy the layouts!
