Scrapbook Circle August Kit and GIVEAWAY!

It is August 1 which means it is time for my FIRST reveal as a Scrapbook Circle Design Team Member! I have been such a fan of Scrapbook Circle for a LONG time, and have been so inspired by all the design team members there over the years. I hope that you find something here that inspires you!

But with a kit like THIS, who WOULDN’T be inspired???



These colors are just fantastic in this kit; Bright and cheerful and just the essence of summer.

Every morning, and after every nap, I sing “Oh Let the Sunshine In” to Charlotte as I open her blinds and shades. How perfect is it that there was a journaling card that had this phrase on it in the kit!!!



I happened to be at my mom’s house while I was doing this LO, so I was able to use her sewing machine for this page. It is very subtle, but I sewed some large sunrays on the background with some yellow thread.


I just love love love the bright yellow letters in this kit, too.

We decided to visit the Jefferson County Fair one day. There were some flags on some of the tents in my photos that inspired the little flags that I made on my LO. I used the cork tag from the kit to push my flag pin into.




One of the first days we were in NY, we had some friends visit us at my parents cottage with their two little boys.  Charlotte just loves Carson, and they played together in the water for a long time!



Charlotte loves the outdoors and is facinated lately with touching trees.  She didn't climb this one (yet!)...grandpa is holding her up in the background.



See all these little flower petals??  They are actually the surfboards from one of the sheets of paper in the kit!  YES, this took me forever!!




Be sure to pick up your August Scrapbook Circle Kit HERE.

hi there! i love ur layouts using the kit -- especially that first one! love the sewing as well -- all those little details -- wow!!! :)
i've looked through the other blogs...and i'm so loving this kit! :) all the projects are fabulous -- although tessa's stand out to me. her style is the most like my own...and those are the ones that usually stand out for me. i especially love the layout she did under the "3000 reason to smile" post -- although the "off she goes" layout she created with the august kit is fabulous as well. i love the way she made the borders around the photo -- it looks marvelous! :)

ScrapMomOf2 said...

I love the frame on Diana's blog! Too cute! Perfect for a summer photo!

The misting and masking was especially nice.

KimR said...

I loved looking at all the blogs. I chose the LO titled "Fly" on LIsa's blog. Just love how happy her daughter looks and how the placement of the picture makes it like she threw all the buttons, flows and mist into the air!

All of you ladies provide a ton of inspiration each month the SBC kits! After hopping around to everyone's blog and being totally inspired I really liked Diana's Lo about her son doing chores for allowance! I like the lemon and lime colors she used because I could practically smell the clean fresh scent of PineSol! LOL!

Audrey,
I absolutely love your pages! I am so excited to meet you at your class in a few weeks at Lonestar! I looked through each blog you suggested I was inspired by each of them, but you are still my favorite. :0)

The paint technique on Beth's Dirty Laundry blog stood out to me. I could definitely use that with several of my beach vacations.

MamaJ said...

Hello! :) I've been quietly following your blog heehee. I really love the LOs you've been doing, so pretty! :)

I think I loved the LO by Diana at http://designbydiana.blogspot.com/2010/07/sketchy-thursdays-new-fave-pic.html
I think it was the colours, the embellishments and the really lovely photo that did it for me!

Thank you for the giveaway!

bbburnett said...

i chose beth's work, because i love the use of grunge and flow-y elements on a page that includes numbers (i'm an angular scrapper so i enjoy the alternative!). also use of b/w and color photos. (AND how *cool* is her blog name??)

I stopped by and left comments on all the DT members' blogs and loved every one of them!!! One that really stuck out to me was Tessa's Sweet Summer layout:
http://precociouspaper.blogspot.com/2010/08/happy-august.html

The soft colors and misting really worked well with the tranquil picture and made me want to plop my feet in the water right beside hers :)

Thanks so much for the opportunity to win that awesome kit!!!

Amber said...

Hey Girlie! You know I think your layouts are ALWAYS fab, thats why I still follow your blog! Of the other designers I especially liked Lisa Andrews layouts where she journaled around the edges, especially the pink layout. It was so simple, but very elegant-I LOVED it!

Beth said...

awww this is so awesome! what a great idea, girl!

Kelly Massman said...

Well, I first want to say that your LOs are great--I especially love your first one--just the most pleasing to me!
I've looked at the other blogs, I love http://thetuckerwolekclan.blogspot.com/2010/08/my-family-my-life.html
Jump from Julie T-W because it is so bright and cheerful and I love the way she air-brushed the edges!
Thanks a million for the chance to win!

Faye Marie said...

Well of course I love your layouts!!!!!!!!!!!!! Looking at the other designers though I adore Lisa Speigel's first layout. The clouds cinched the deal!!! I love them!!!! P.S. I love this kit!!!!!

Hi Audrey!
What a fun post, and thanks for doing this giveaway. I shared it on my blog today.

Leah the Orange said...

oh my gosh, how could i POSSIBLY choose between two of my very favourite bloggers?! what a great team - and congrats on your spot! judging by what i've seen on your blog, you're gonna ROCK this spot, Audrey!)

so, let's see....
there's THIS ONE from the ridiculously talented Julie, which has the most gorgeous stitching and some of my fave papers (love that CC De-Lovely line!), and i totally dig how she layered all the circles! perfect for scraps!

and then there's THIS BEAUTY from the amazing Diana, which uses some of the most gorgeous paper, and features a photo of three BEAUTIFUL ladies! oh, and that trim! mmmmm!

so i couldn't possibly choose a favourite from either girl, as there are just too many beautiful creations! but what i've seen you all doing with this kit? WOW! just wonderful!

Kelly said...

I loved everything I saw. But I am forever trying to mimic Tessa's LOs so I will have to pick hers. Thanks for the chance to win.

Savannah O'Gwynn said...

WOWOWOWOW! I just love all the crafty projects shared! I really like the Super Gift on Scrappy Wonder Woman's blog--I really struggle with masculine/boyish LOs!! THanks for sharing:)

Thanks for pointing out these blogs to us! I really loved seeing the dt's work, you all are some really talented ladies. The one I loved the most is Tessa's sweet summer LO. I couldnt stop going through her blog :-) I love how her LO's look so complete without using a lot of product- they are all so very well done

I love to see Boy Pages, it is so hard to find great ones and I immediately loved Diana's lO here: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_U5izQ8LA230/TFoeSmxvO4I/AAAAAAAAFKU/cgNsMhG0Tmg/s1600/102_1598.jpg

Love Lisa's LO with all the pink!

Veronica said...

Love the Tanner Album that Diana made for her friend's new baby. I do not know how to link up my comment! Sorry. Thanks for the giveaway! I will comment on Diana's blog as well.

Christy said...

I liked Tessa Buy's layout 'Off He Goes' for a couple of reasons: though the layout is gorgeous, the picture still takes center stage and I love the painted border!

Fabi Ormerod said...

Hi....great giveaway and layouts! I love Tessas work and this recent one as she use roses, mist and its at the same time a vintage and modrn layout! http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_OGVApCjS8Ro/TFXRI-WdQTI/AAAAAAAABnM/HW73zuCiLvg/s1600/1.jpg

I left a comment and headed over to scrapbook circle to see how to do that paint technique! Love it!

Heather said...

I love what you and the other DT members did with this kit! It's so hard to choose my favorite though. I do like how Lisa Spiegel used the surf boards to create a banner in "Gator Girls". I like finding unique uses for things.
