When I think of Love I think of You.

Hello everyone, Brenda here with my second post for the month at Scrapbookit. I have been busy this month and made a couple of extra things with my kit after another layout. I just love this range of papers I got to work with. The Simple Stories Kit - Hello Baby has so much in it. First is my layout.

This layout is of my son Riley when he was just a week old and of course myself. Looking way younger I might add. Twelve years does age a person lol. Since I have a couple of things to show I have decided to just list what I have used.

I also decided with this layout I would follow the requirements of the months challenge set by Tania. For the challenge you are required to use the following on your layout...

Kaiser Blooms
manor House Flowers
Distress Ink - Vintage Photo
Kaiser Stencil - Crosses
On gauze and stencil I used Lindy's Stamp Gang - Blue Hawaiian Blue

The title chippie is by WOW and the heart chippies are ScrapFX - Sweethearts. On the chippies I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Magical - Teal. 
Sprays - Heidi Swapp Color Shine - Mustard, Rose and Citron
Also on Background - Faber Castell Gelatos - Pink x 2 shades, dark Green, Lime, Light Blue.

I have made a small gift/gift card bag and also a Pillow box for the same thing. Other than using Twine, Distress Ink - Vintage Photo and a new out Fiskars label/hole/eyelet punch I only used the Simple Stories Kit that I used for my layout. I think they would be ideal for gift cards.

The other one I made was a gift card envelope. I used a small Kaiser Envelope to make it and again the Simple Stories Kit. On the edges I used Distress Ink - vintage Photo front and back. On the front I
used a WOW Baby Chippie. There was a boy and Girl. As you see I chose the girl. I did a little coloring with my Copics. I used a journal pen around the elephant and heart balloon on the back. 

The final thing I made from the kit was a card. What is a gift card package without a card. The card I created on a Kaiser card from one of the their card packs. The items I used are -
Simple Stories Hello Baby kit
Distress Ink - Vintage Photo
Brown Journal Pen for stitching
Kaiser paper Doily
Kaiser Pearls
Kaiser New Born Rub-on

This is one great kit to get creative with. I still have more papers and embellishments left to create other things or a layout. For all you see the other DT girls use and what I have shown you are all available in the Scrapbookit Store. If you don't see it just ask Jo. The store is easy to find....It is at the top of the blog and all you have to do is click and find all the goodies you need. 
Just yesterday Jo got in some yummy new stock and I can't wait for it to be posted in the Store. I think the first things for me will be the great new Prima Sprays and also the New Distress Ink sprays. Just the same in color as your Distress Ink Pads but in a spray. WooHoo, a shopping I will go. 
 There is still plenty of time to join in the challenge for possibly being the winner of an awesome prize. You have to be in it to have the chance of winning though, so get your mojo on and have a go.

Till my next post.....Happy Crafting Hugs Brenda.
