GOGO oct.kit

Hello everybody!!! I can t belive it !!!!! I m blogging for the second time in a week!! insert *shock* look here!!! The scrummy yummy octobers kit form Scrapagogo has hit the homes of many lucky people this last week, and it contained the most gorgeous papers from BG mellow collection. Loved playing with this so I thought I would share some of the projects I ve made as part of my design team assignment.

This cute bag was made from 2 sheets of A4 paper, the kit also had some doylies included so I ve decided to cut the frilly bit added some brown ink and used it to edge the top of the gift bag, it looks quite nice IRL.

The cherries was this month s delicious stamp, and I just know I will use this stamp over and over sooo very versatile!!!! I ve paper pieced the cherries, and then added more depth using my watercolours. Did some fake stitching(still havent moved my sewing machine in my studio) on this card as well.

Making memories rub ons (also included in the kit), were used to add the sentiment for this card, while the flowers were cut out and then mounted on 3 d foam, with lashings of glitter added for extra sparkle and twinkle. I ve also hand drawn a wobbly border around the edge of the card.

And last one for today is this *Get Well Soon* one!! This flower was just beautiful and decided to make this shaped card to emphasise it. I ve handwritten the sentiment( but I definately need more practice at this, methinks).

So this was octobers!!! I m currently playing with novembers wich is oh so equally stuning!! In fact is very very GLAM!! Loads of glitter and girly things in it, proper girly girl things!! wink wink. Here s a sneak peek of what s included

Does this looks impressive or what????Check the kits out I ll say, because they re really beautifuly put together with loads of great embellies, ribbons, diferent shapes and sizes cards, envelopes and is all very good Quality and latest trend(not cheappo and often tacky looking supllies that you find in other similar cardmaking kits) and of course not to forget the stamp and sentiment to go with it every month. Hurrah!!!

Have a great weekend everybody!! see ya........

  1. I love your cards! Especially the Cherry one and the Get Well Soon one :)

    The Cherry card - love the depth on the cherries, and I wouldn't have noticed the fake stitching had you not mentioned it ;) Just adorable!

    Get Well Card - beautiful colours! :) Love the "handwritten" Get Well Soon bit. Love the shape too! Did you just use pinking shears (sp) for that and just cut freehand?

  2. Absolutely fabulous creations.

  3. All such lovely cards, I especially like the flower on the Get Well Soon card, it's gorgeous.
