Scrap That! June Kit/Blog Hop

Wow, June is already here and it's time for another kit reveal and blog hop! We have SEVEN AMAZING blogs for you to visit today, each with a some beautiful projects that were created using the Scrap That! June "Afternoon Tea" kit. f you have just arrived here from Robinʼs blog (our amazing guest designer this month!) you are in the correct place. If not, head back to the Scrap That! blog and join us.  All qualifying entries will be entered into a draw for the GRAND PRIZE, a Scrap That! kit.


For my first layout "Friends", I used the gorgeous kit sketch by LG Belarmino. These blue and green Websters papers from the Ladies and Gents collection were my favorite and a perfect background for this picture of my boys goofing around while we were testing our camera. I added a heart doily (distress inked it) and a Dusty Attic title chippie from my stash but everything else is from the kit... including the chipboard clock and matching green background cardstock!

Design Tip: Cut-off stamens on a large flower and layer a smaller one in the middle instead for a pretty focal flower.


For my "so sweet" layout, I fussy cut the main paper and layered on some doilies from my stash to make the pink circle pop against the texture. These were perfect papers for this candid chubby baby shot of my daughter in her stroller (two years ago).

Design Tip:  Use the kit technique product which is white FlowerSoft this month, to give cool texture to the paper flowers in the kit.


My last layout with the kit, "my hunny bunny" is my daughter as an infant. I can't resist to add pink to layouts about her. I made four large flowers using the plain white cardstock in the kit and various techniques from my my flower tutorials (quick link found in the right sidebar of this blog). Everything you see on this page is from the main kit - NO add-on embellies or stash items used at all!

Design Tip: Add flowers to floral paper for a gorgeous full garden effect.
