{scrapbook circle's june kit first avenue - and a giveaway!}

Hey there! Today I'm sharing a few projects I made with this month's kit - First Avenue! This kit is full of fun patterns and blues, greens and pops of orange. Lisa has also generously allowed me to give away this month's kit to one of my readers! Be sure to leave a comment on this post for your chance to win :)

Even though this is sort of a boyish color palette, I wanted to challenge myself to make a layout using a photo of my daughter. I changed the photo to black and white and I think it worked out well. I used my Silhouette to cut stars from the background and added orange cardstock underneath.

Also -- see those orange stars on the photo? Those are flocked rub-ons by Basic Grey that are in this month's kit. How fun!

I also added a few splatters of navy mist and some enamel dots from my stash.

This is a card I created with the kit as well. Love that 'rad' sticker from Basic Grey.

Thanks so much for coming by today!

Here's a peek at the First Avenue kit. If you'd like a chance to win one, leave me a comment :)

ETA - commenting will be open until Monday June 10th at midnight Central time.

{projects that WOW blog hop}

Hi there! I was honored to be contacted by Jennifer Grace to contribute to an upcoming online class - Projects that Wow. Projects that WOW! is about making your projects stand out from the crowd. What makes you pause and look closer at a scrapbook page when you are flipping through your own albums, or looking at other people’s layouts in magazines? Which cards jump out at you from Pinterest or from envelopes when you open them? What details of paper-crafted home décor or jewelery make you stop and say ‘wow!’? It’s time to learn some of these techniques or styles and put them to use!

This blog hop includes a giveaway for three class places (worth £10 each). To enter you just need to comment anywhere on the ‘Projects that WOW!’ blog hop by 11.59pm BST Thursday 6th June. EACH COMMENT on EACH BLOG in the hop counts as an EXTRA ENTRY into the draw. The winners will be announced at Jennifer Grace Creates on Friday 7th May. If you’ve already purchased a class place and then you win, the class price will be refunded to you. So don’t wait to sign up! Go HERE to buy a place now!

Here is a sneak of the layout I contributed, and here's a little more about the class:

This online class will consist of 15 PDF prompts (lessons) and at least 3 videos, and it will run as a ‘live’ class from Monday the 10th to Friday 28th June 2013. All the class material will still be available to participants after the end of class, so don’t worry if you can’t manage it while it’s ‘live’. Class participants will receive an email with a prompt attached every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for three weeks.

The class will feature lots of scrapbook layouts, but also some cards, jewellery and home décor crafts (all involving scrapbook paper/supplies). There will be a forum, and a gallery for class participants to upload to, and there will be some prizes up for grabs for those who join in while it’s ‘live’!

Each prompt will have a ‘theme’ of a particular style or technique, which can be used to make crafty projects that grab your attention. You may have seen these styles before but not been able to define them, or you’ll be learning new ways to use them! There will be two layouts, two cards, and another item (eg jewellery / home decor, etc) by Jennifer Grace on each prompt, as well as a layout by a guest contributor. Some will have step-by-step tutorials, some will be super inspiring!

If you have any questions about the class just email Jennifer Grace at:

Next on the hop, you'll want to stop at Angie's blog. Here's the complete list in case you get lost!
