My Creative Scrapbook: Jan Guest Designer

I am on the DT for My Creative Sketches, but I was excited and honored to be asked to be a guest designer in January for the My Creative Scrapbook kit team. When this gorgeous kit showed up at my door I couldn't wait to get started creating!
 
The January Main Kit
 
I have three layouts to share with you today...
 
On this layout I used a technique I pinned awhile back but hadn't had the chance to use yet. You might be surprised, but it is really easy to make your own chevrons! Make sure you check out the My Creative Scrapbook blog this month. I will share with you how it is done.
 
I loved the little chipboard stickers with the days of the week on them. They were the inspiration for this layout.
 

 
The letter stickers didn't show up as well as I would have liked on the patterned paper so I used a fine point brown marker to trace around them.

 
 
For this layout I loved the banner sticker included in the kit. It was a bit too long for the space I had on the layout, so I just trimmed off a few flags.
 
The 'Love you' sticker was perfect for these photos of my daughter with her new kitten...she was definitely in love.
 
 
I fussy cut the paper flowers out of one of the patterns in the kit and used dimensional adhesive to pop them up.

 
I'm loving these border stickers in the kit too! The look awesome, and you don't have to go dig out your edge punches.

 
 
I'm really loving how this last layout turned out. I layered a bunch of the fun chipboard elements.

 
The blue tag was kind of plain, so I layered the leaf sticker across it. And  I love this huge green chipboard flower.
 
 
I gave the old sewing machine a workout, I think I stitched almost everything down on all three of these layouts.

 
I tied a knot in the tag with the pretty sheer green ribbon included in the kit.


The flowers in the kit come with pearl centers, but I didn't really feel like they fit the style of my layout, so I pulled the pearl off carefully and saved it for another project, and I added one of the buttons from the kit to the center.
 

 
So there you have it...
