Stina's June Kit Projects

Hi again! Stina here today with my projects made with the fabulous June Kit. This is one of my favourite kits thus far, very easy to work with!

 Personal Supplies: white acrylic

When I opened this kit I immediately fell for the yellow zipper and I knew I had to do something fun with it, and here is the result. For this project I used products from the Main Kit, the Embellishment Add-on, the Mixed Media Kit and the Flower Add-on.

 Personal Supplies: black acrylic, modeling paste

In the Mixed Media Kit there was a box that I just had to alter. I started by adding some texture to it with modeling paste and the beautiful stencil in the Mixed Media Kit. Then, I added some of the chipboard onto the top of the box. When the glue had dried I painted the whole box with black acrylic paint. Then I dry brushed it with white acrylic paint. I decorated the lid with some flowers and the C'est Magnifique Fairy Frost Glitter. For this project I used products from the Mixed Media Kit, the Embellishment Add-on and the Flower Add-on.

 Personal Supplies: black acrylic, white cardstock

Here's another layout that I made. I really loved the stencil in the Mixed Media Kit and wanted it to take a big part of the layout. For this project I used products from the Main Kit, Mixed Media Kit, the Embellishment Add-on and the Flower Add-on.

Personal Supplies: brown mist

My last layout is with a friends lovely daughter. For this project I used products from the Main Kit, Mixed Media Kit, the Embellishment Add-on and the Flower Add-on.

Thanks for stopping by!

Other than that, you are free to use anything you have in your personal stash, and we welcome all styles of scrapbooking.
What do you have to do to enter our sketch challenge?

1. You must be a follower of our blog. It's easy to become follower - see the left sidebar.

Dana's June Kit Projects

Hi! Dana here today sharing the projects I created with the June Kits. I had a blast working with the gorgeous patterned papers and chipboard from the Deja Vu collection by Blue Fern Studios. I used items from the Main Kit, Flower Add-On, Embellishment Add-On and Mixed Media Kit for each of my projects.

There is a fantastic assortment of gel, paint, mica flakes, glitter and stamps in the June kits. I used them all here to add color and texture to the background of my layout.

I loved the brick pattern on one of the flower packages and used that for a photo mat.

The flowers included in the Main Kit and the Flower Add-On are a fantastic variety of colors, textures and shapes which yields beautiful flower clusters!

I dressed up a notecard with some fussy cuts and piece of Blue Fern Studios chipboard.

There are a lot of flowers, gears and butterflies to cut out of the patterned papers in this kit. I designed this page with a lot of fussy cuts and metal gears from the Prima Stamp-N-Add set from the Mixed Media Kit.

I topped the fussy cuts with blooms from the Flower Add-On. I love the pop of deep pink from the Prima Cherry Blossom Branches!

I created a title for my page using a Prima Wooden ATC, that I backed with patterned paper, and an Authentique journaling card. Both of these items are included in the Embellishment Add-On. I highlighted both pieces with Faber-Castell Ice Texture Gems from the Mixed Media Kit.

I had a lot of fun embellishing this page with Blue Fern Studios Chipboard!

I love that the pieces are large enough to support flowers and buttons!

I created this pink flower from the scallop trim and brad included in the Main Kit.

This paper mache box comes in the Mixed Media Kit. It stands up well to paint! I piled flowers, chipboard, buttons, brads, pins, stickers and a fun zipper trim onto the lid of the box.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I have one more layout to share for the June Sketch Challenge. I hope you'll stop by again on the first of the month for the sketch reveal and inspiration from the Design Team!

The June Add-Ons and the Mixed Media Kit are available for purchase now from the C'est Magnifique Store. The June Main Kit will be available on May 31st.
