just popping in quick

…to ask you a question & to share a layout I did this week! My question is about KITS!  What do you look for when purchasing a kit?  Leave me a comment under this post before my crop this Saturday at 9am, telling me what are ‘must haves’ in a kit and you’ll be entered to win… A custom kit from me!

… some thoughts:  how many cardstock pieces?  how many of the same piece of patterned paper? ribbon, twine, burlap string? inks or mists? LO ideas?

Bring on the comments!  What matters to YOU?

And now for the LO…..There’s lots of Studio Calico here! I added some scraps of October Afternoon papers I had, a cut apart Jenni Bowlin 5×7″ Bingo card, Canvas Corp Mini Kraft Bag, May Arts 1/4″ ribbons (red & brown check), wood buttons (in my Etsy shop!), and some burlap string. 

A couple of my fav’s are the fun chipboard clouds from Studio Calico.  The chipboard clouds are very neutral in color, so I added some Mr. Huey’s Mist in Bonny Blue to them.  I didn’t spray it on through..instead I sprayed a little in a cup and painted it on for a more even look.  I also love the Studio Calico Tissue Scraps!  I used the same color and painted the ink right onto the tissue scraps, then zapped it with my heat gun to dry it faster.  I was being impatient yesterday!   Then, I rolled the inked tissue around a Cosmo Cricket Gluber (like a huge glue dot!) and make the circle/flower. 

The chipboard letters are also from SC.  I left the journaling space blank for my sister to fill in when I give this LO to her!! 

Pop up the clouds for some fun dimension!

If you like the papers used in this LO & you’re attending my crop this Saturday…then you’re in luck!  These papers, ribbons, Kraft bags, buttons, JB Bingo Cards & more will be available at my crop at great prices!! 
If you can’t come to crop, stop in to shop!!  We’ll be having some special fundraising items between Noon and 3pm!!  Some generous Tupperware, Lia Sophia and handmade jewelry girls are donating a portion of their proceeds to the Susan G. Komen Foundation with me!!!  Hope to see you there this Saturday.
That’s all for now!  Thanks for stopping by again.
