Hey yall! Happy October!!! Can you believe it's October?! Man, time flies! But I am sooo happy that October is here! I love this time of year! The weather is perfect for me and I love to decorate my home for fall. I hope to get started on that this next week. My house needs a major cleaning beforehand. But in the meantime, it is the 1st and that means a new kit is being debuted at SFTIO (Scrapbooking From The Inside Out)!!! Each month the kit is based around a different emotion. This month's emotion...Purpose. This kit is filled with goodies from Graphic 45, Crate Paper, Kaisercraft, Tim Holtz, BasicGrey, Melissa Francis, Cosmo Cricket, 7 Gypsies, and much more! The kit this month definitely has a girly type feel to it...right up my alley! Here is a pic of the whole kit for ya to see:
Now, we were assigned to create 4 projects using the kit this month. I will share my first project today and the next 3 over the next 3 days. So if ya can, be sure to visit again this weekend to see this kit in action. If you want to see more, hop on over to the gallery at SFTIO! Some awesome inspiration!
For my first page, I decided to scrap about being a wife. I know in my heart that being Brandon's wife is my calling in this life. He is my soul mate and I cherish him everyday. I truly believe it was fate that we were brought together. This page is entitled 'Kismet.' All papers, except cardstock, were pulled from the SFTIO Kit. I brought in alphas from my own scrappy stash. Those are from American Crafts. I also did a bit of stitching on this page and added more texture through the use of a Martha Stewart border punch. Of course, had to pull out my favorite Helmar Adhesives to complete the page. I used the Quick Fix Adhesive Runner for the majority of the page and popped up my clock chipboard pieces, flowers, buttons, and ribbon bow with the Liquid Scrap Dots. I also popped up the dress form using Zap Dots and adhered the ribbon down with 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. Here is my page....
The dress form was cut from a piece of Graphic 45 Patterned Paper. All Graphic 45 is from the 'Steampunk Debutante' line. I am not sure if you can see it, but I added a green button to the waist of the dress form. This was in the kit and remind me of a bow. Also, love the flowers in this kit! They are so yummy! They even include a feather!!!
I added some twine to the centers of the chipboard clocks.
The pink ruffles were also cut from a piece of patterned paper. This pink paper is from Crate Paper. I turned up the edges of the ruffles for some added dimension.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! I'll see ya tomorrow with SFTIO LO #2!
