August Crop Addict Kit Reveal!

SO here we are at the end of July and we are talking about August already! Where does the time go? This has been such a wonderful wonderful summer for me so far.

I have traveled to NY with a VERY limited supply of scrappy products and tools. I have a pair of scissors, some adhesive, and my other tools, plus a few cat’s eye ink pads and some glossy accents. That’s IT! So the LO’s that you see below have been made with just my small stash of tools. It reminded me that you don’t need much to make a page that is special…it is the memories that matter.

I would like to introduce you to the August Kit at Crop Addict:

There are just TONS of goodies in this kit, and it is perfect for summer and travel themed LO’s.

On our way to NY this summer, we had quite the day of travel when we missed out first flight because of the long security lines. What should have been a 6 hour trip turned into 12. I was so nervous about how Charlotte would do on the plane, but she did so good! I brought lots of quite things for her to play with on the plane.

This LO uses a lot of the Adorn It! Travel papers. I loved the paper with all the circles of travel icons so I cut them out and arranged them in clusters.

When I started this LO, I was thinking about how high Keith was throwing Charlotte in the air, which got me thinking about how I could use the travel papers for these photos. I thought, “well planes go high in the air and so do butterflies”, so I used theses images from the papers in the kit. But I wanted one more “flying” thing, so I made a kite out of some paper scraps and used actual kite string for the tail.

I was originally going to use these photos on a double page spread, but since I don’t have any extra CS with me, I decided to pare it down to a one pager. But I still used 4, 4x6 photos on the page. This is a great way to get a lot of photos on one page, without cropping!

I just used some small piece of paper to fill out the inner square and journaled around the edge of the cardstock.

I have a few more things I am working on for this kit, so stay tuned!!!  :) You can purchase the kit in the Crop Addict Store HERE.
