More of the September Kit!

Hello again!  It's time to show you more of my creations using the September Kit!  The colors in this months kit really are gorgeous.  I am loving the yellow, and for my layout I used a lot.  I took some Instagram pictures of Kate and I at the fair this summer that seemed perfect for the papers.  I cut out some of the chevron pattern and added them to the top and bottom of the layout to draw the eye to the pictures.  Then I layered 3 different patterned  papers in the center and put the pictures in block style.
I added some washi tape and did a little bit of sewing too.
I left one of the spaces open for the mixed font title.  I used the American Craft Thickers that are in the kit, some tiny alphas from my stash and cut the "FAIR" out using pattered paper and my Cameo.
I distressed the little alphas to give it that used look. 
Now for my card.  Don't fall out of your seat girls.  I used a FLOWER!!  Can you believe it?  It wasn't hard at all! LOL.  I used more of the Close Knit paper but these are softer then the ones I used on the layout.  The minty green color at the top is so pretty.
The ruler ribbon is folded toward each end and I used pop dots to give it some dimension. 
Then I added the flower with a wonderful little enamel dot and cut out a tag from one of the patterned papers in the kit extras. I cut a little slit in the tag and tucked it under the dot so it would stay.  I love making "hey" cards just to have when I need a card to send to someone.  Now, what will you creative with your September Kit?  Make sure you show us when you are done!

Loving September!

What a way to start my first month for the DT!  I am having such a great time with the September Kit!!  I love the colors, extras, and all the embellishments.  For my first layout I used papers from the Crate Paper "Close Knit" line.  I layered some pieces of patterned paper and journaling spots.  I did some fussy cutting with the camera paper and added a camera to the corner of my design.  It might be hard to tell, but I added a photo overlay to my Instagram picture and I love it.  The overlays are definitely a great part of the kit!  They are just a fun way to add something to your pictures!
I cut out some journaling spots from one of the sheets in the extras kit.  I stamped the date and did a little journaling above the picture.  I added a little distressing to some of the edges too.
I just love the layered borders in the kit.  I added one to the top of my page with a little subtitle.  It even has the stitching right on it!  They are all so cute!
For my second layout I went with a different color scheme but it is still papers from the Close Knit line. The yellow and blue just look so good together so I had to used them.  Part of my title is made form the American Craft Thickers that come in the kit and the "my" in the title is made from some of the patterned paper and cutting it with my Cameo.  I did some layering, added the picture of my sweet dog and added the title and journaling.  I think it's a totally different feel from my first page.  Another reason to love the kit Amy put together.  You can do so much with it.
I hope you head over and check out what the September Kit has to offer!  Amy did a wonderful job putting it all together and I can't wait to start creating more layout and cards to share.  Have a wonderful week!
