I was lucky enough to be asked to join Scarlet Lime this month as their guest artist! I was asked to put together a kit of some of my favorite products and then design a project using the kit! It was a lot of fun and I absolutely love how the kit turned out – full of fun stuff! Unfortunately it sold out a few hours after it went on sale so they are all gone but I wanted to share the projects I did with it.
This first project is a piece of plexiglass (that came with the kit) that I designed and embellished as a home decor item. You could either take the glass out of a frame and frame the whole piece or just leave it by itself and lean it on a shelf or table. I have had it sitting in many different spots in my home and it works everywhere! If you bought my kit you will get the complete instructions to make this!
After making the project I had so much left over that I didn’t even use, so I wanted to show everyone another fun thing they could make with the same kit. This is a mini album, entitled “bits & pieces”. I wanted to make a fun little book where I can record random thoughts, memories and photos. It is super simple. I decorated the cover and the first page and then left the remaining pages blank. When I get to each page, I will first do my journaling, add photos if any, and then if there is room left over, I will add a simple embellishment. This is a no-pressure, no-fuss way of scrapbooking (for my friends who “don’t scrapbook”). You can record memories and photos in a little book like this and it doesn’t have to be fancy or time-consuming! Keep it as simple as you want and if you are feeling more creative one day, then you can do a little more to that page. See, super easy, right?
All of the Scarlet Lime kits are awesome! I have a subscription so I get the main kit every month. I have to say that these kits are always bursting at the seams with tons of amazing products! I have never been disappointed or felt like I didn’t get more than my money’s worth! Another thing I absolutely love about these kits are the custom designed clear stamps! They are always super cute and many times you get more than one stamp in a kit!! LOVE that!
If you don’t already subscribe and you are looking for a scrapbooking kit, this one is a must! They always sell out within hours so if you want to get in on the fun, you should definitely get on the waiting list for next month! I promise you will love these kits!
And last these are the pages I made using this month’s main kit. It was awesome too – tons of beautiful products! I am so into the metallic embellishments right now – love the gold, silver and copper! Thanks, Christy, for asking me to be the guest artist! Fun stuff!
