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!
