This month's kit had some awesome Fancy Pants papers, Pink Paislee letter stickers, buttons, chipboard stars, tire track ribbon and loads of card stock to work with. I had already purchased some of these papers prior to getting my kit so I was super excited to work with it. I love Kraft papers. I like the muted tones and earthy feel and I especially like them when they are distressed. Be sure to check out all the other designer's layouts in the TSF gallery.
Just Cruisin' is a simple layout that leaves the focus on the photos. I used some bling to create a road then cut out all the little cars. The large car is chipboard and the window has glossy accents on it to look like glass. I used the Plantin Schoolbook Cricut cartridge to create the title.
(Items not from the kit: kraft cardstock, screw top brads, brushed metal brads, Fancy Pants chipboard car)
For the 'so full of wonder' layout I wanted a rough, distressed look so I crumpled some papers and used an edge distresser. I used George on the Cricut create the star that mimics the ones in the paper. The ledger frame was cut from around a die cut sheet, crumpled then stapled to the background.
(Items not from the kit: jillibean soup letters, green cardstock, rose moka mini letter stickers, star brads)
For 'attitude what attitude?' I used some raffia to tie the buttons which brings out the hay in the photos. I sprayed the chipboard stars with tattered leather glimmer mist and distressed the background cardstock.

I tried something a little different on this card. I made a tag on my Cricut then added an eyelet and some jillibean soup twine and hung the inside message.
( Items not from kit: jillibean soup twine and mini monogram letters, brads, fancy pants chipboard arrow.)
Have I mentioned how much I love all the new products from Jillibean Soup?? So many unique pieces to add to layouts. Most of my layouts use Tim Holtz distress ink in vintage photo and I also use a lot of Glossy accents which isn't always easy to see in photos.
