Come 'Discover' SFTIO With Me!!!

Hey yall! Happy Sunday! I hope you are enjoying a relaxing day! It's the first of August! Can you believe it?! This summer is just flying by! But to be honest, I'm kinda glad. I'm ready for this hot weather to be gone!!! Anyways, it is the 1st and that means a new kit reveal at 'Scrapbooking From The Inside Out' (SFTIO)!!!! As you know, each month at SFTIO a new kit is revealed with a theme. Each theme is based on an emotion. The theme for this month....Discovery!!! We are all scrapping about things we have discovered in our lives and things we hope to discover in the future. It is such an awesome topic and I had such a wonderful time working with this GORGEOUS kit!!! I wanted to show you all the pix of this kit....you will be drooling soon! Tee Hee! It really is wonderful! I just adore all of the alphabet stickers, embellies, and papers in this kit! Yum! Here it is:
SFTIO August 2010: 'Discovery'

These American Crafts Thickers are FABULOUS! You get sooo many and they look great!!
These alphas are super cute too and go a long way!

Now, on to my design team layouts that I completed using the kit. I created 5 layouts with this kit. I will share one today and the next 4 layouts over the next 4 days. So if ya can, be sure to check back. For my first layout, I wanted to scrap about one of my greatest discoveries in my adult life....my passion for scrapbooking!!!! Everything that you see below, with the exception of the ball fringe and pearls, are all from the kit. I stamped a bit on the background (behind the pic) using the stamp that is included in the kit. I love the vintage look of this stamp.
"Discovering A Passion"
For my journaling, I used a poem I found online years ago. The poem is supposed to mimic the song 'These Are A Few of My Favorite Things" from 'The Sound of Music.' Here is the poem:
'The Sound of Scrapping'
Ribbons in glass jars
And fibers in baskets
Bright pattern papers
In wire mesh boxes
Bold solid cardstock
Stored without dings
These are a few of my favorite things!
Creme colored laces
And crisp fabric flowers
Stickers and die cuts
And punches with power
Colorful inks that make pages sing
These are a few of my favorite things!
Stored so neatly
In their places
Where they can be found
I simply store all of my favorite things
And then I design just fine!
Then I wrote my own journaling which reads...."Scrapbooking...it is truly my one major passion in this life! It is my way to escape and to be truly at bliss!"
The black and white letter flowers are from the kit. I created the rolled flower myself using leftover cardstock. The leaves were cut using my Cricut die cutting machine. I adhered all of these using Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots. I adhered the pom pom trim using Helmar 450 Quick Fix Adhesive Runner. I used the Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner for the rest of the page.

If you can, be sure to hop on over to the gallery at SFTIO and check out my fellow DT's fabulous layouts using this kit!

Thanks for stoppin' by today! I'll see ya tomorrow! Have a fabulous rest of the weekend!

Happy Scrappin'!

Pin It!
