August 2012 Kits Bazzill Echo Park Everyday Eclectic Madeline Fox Studio Calico The Story Begins Kit

This was one of the first pages I began with Scraptastic's The Story Begins kit, and I started it without really knowing where I was going. I had pulled the picture, I had created the banner, and I had cut a strip of that awesome cloud paper, but I was without ideas of how to tie it all together. I tried a white background. I tried a blue background. I tried layering some of the other patterned papers. Nothing seemed to work, so I put it aside while I completed three more pages with the kit. Meanwhile, I happened upon...

8.5X11 layout August 2012 Kits Echo Park Everyday Eclectic Nathalie Leonelli The Story Begins Kit

 Hello friends! Nathalie here today to share my last page with the Story Begins.

I was inspired to create the sketch when I saw the huge sheet of die cut banners that came with the fabulous Barn Door kit. I made it my personal goal to use every one of those banners on one page!   This is the layout that I created. My son had just gotten his new big boy bed, and he wasn't very sleepy at all. He was too excited about the new bed. Every time I...

 Good morning Scraptastic friends! It's Nathalie here today to share two cards created with The Story Begins. With the fantastic mix of colors and patterns of this kit, I just really like how they turned out. "Today": I love that pinwheels are still very much in. I have used them on a page before but this was my first time putting one on a card and I think I will do it again! The only supplies I have added to the kit were two wooden toothpicks and a brad. "For you":  All I added to the kit for this one...
