Scrapbook Kit Club Blog Hop!!

Hi and welcome to Scrapbook Kit Club’s BLOG HOP! I am so very honored to be a part of this team and to be able to work with the wonderful kits that Amber puts together.


How the Blog Hop Works:

Start at the SBKC blog and click from one blog to another. Leave a comment on each blog for the designers. When you have visited and left comments on each blog, return to the SBKC blog and leave a comment that you have completed the hop.

Also, don’t forget to join us Fri. Sat. and Sun. for a crop on the forum!

Take a look at the Feb. kit!


So I would like to share with you some of my creations with the February kit. First of all, one of the things I love about SBKC kits is that they are very unique. Just look at this adorable handmade bird and key:

Also, Amber always includes different types of products for you to try. For example, January’s kit had some Stickles, and this months kit has some Smooch inks. I just LOVE the look of these Smooch bottles! They almost look like nail polish. The brush inside has a very fine tip which is great for adding detail to stamped images. I challenged myself to try and find different ways to use the smooch ink. I used it to create some faux stitching on the patterned paper:



I used it to highlight some of my lettering, and I used it to add highlights to some paper flowers that I made to give them some more depth.



These cardstock flowers, by the way, I made using a tutorial from Helen Croft HERE. Wish I could take the credit for these!! But I did add the stitching to mine to try and make them stand out a bit more.

And here are my completed LO's:




Well I am SO glad you could join us for the blog hop. I am still working on one more LO and a mini album with this kit, so I hope to post that soon!

Oh yeah, and if you leave a comment for me, I will randomly draw a name for a RAK! I will post a winner on Monday, Feb. 8. Sorry, but I can’t ship internationally. Thanks for stopping by!

Now you are off to visit the VERY talented Jennifer Cupp’s blog.
